Who Killed Jonbenet

Written by: Diane Locksley

Jonbenet Ramsey, six-year-old beauty queen
Found dead in the basement of her family home
Photographs showed an expression so serene
And to this day the perpetrator unknown

To solve the case, police questioned a neighbor
Both of her parents were under surveillance
Suspicion also cast on a jealous brother
Too young for exposure; it gave her no chance

This mystery has remained unsolved for years
Fingers have been pointed in all directions
After Jonbenet's death such contests drew jeers
Many crowns won; scant time for celebration

Perhaps her killer will be identified
But as time passes, hopes continue to fade
For her death, will anyone ever be tried
Bleached hair, painted nails; she was just in first grade
