Kathie, this is an excellent post.


I know that there has been some speculation in the ng about Donald
Paugh..... Does he have an alibi? Was he in Atlanta the night of
JonBenet's killing? I bet the Boulder PD won't say; they'd give away
their last shroud of secrecy. It has been suggested that Patsy's parents
were divorced or separated; is this true as well?

}Ramsey and therefore would probably have had easy access to John's

The first I heard about Donald Paugh was on Geraldo. I haven't seen
anything in the newspapers. How come? You make an interesting argument.

Tanya:

Thanks. Interestingly, my friend in the Roswell PD won't tell me
anything about Donald Paugh except - just watch for some news about
him (which of course only peaked my curiosity even more). From what
I remember about the very early coverage of this story in Atlanta's
papers though, Donald Paugh was in Denver the night of the murder (an
easy drive to Boulder in the middle of the night), and while Donald
and Nedra aren't divorced or legally separated (as far as I remember
- again from the paper), he lives he Denver to work at Access
Graphics. During the time of the funeral and when the Ramseys were
here in December-January for the week, they all stayed (Ramseys, Don,
Nedra) at the Paugh home on 865 Brooksglen Drive in Roswell.

What the Roswell detective did tell me I posted: John Andrew's alibi
is firm per Cindy, Melinda and neighbor Joan Crowley (who has sworn
the 4 of them all had dinner together Xmas), and, he said that the
reason the BPD wants a third writing exemplar from John Ramsey is
that the first two exonerate him and they want to make sure. While
this alone doesn't mean he didn't do it (I personally don't put much
faith in handwriting experts), it gives me more reason to look at
Donald Paugh. If I can get my neighbor to cough up anymore, I'll
certainly post it.

You won't get flamed by me...when I heard Heraldo mention him and then
pointedly annouce that he wasn't going to go into that at this time a
large red flag went up...I posted about it but nobody replied....what do
we know about this man...if nothing there may be a reason for that.

Well, Geraldo said that Grand-Paugh lived in Boulder.
As for your other question, the tabs this week say Patsy has changed her
mind and intends to stick by her man.
