From the Inside Flap
At 0552 hours on the morning of December 26, 1996, a hysterical Patsy Ramsey called 911 to proclaim that her 6-year-old daughter had been kidnapped from her home. A ransom note had been left by a "foreign faction" who stated that they didn't care for the way her husband did business and demanded $118,000.00 for the safe return of their daughter. The brutalized body of JonBenet Ramsey would eventually be found concealed in the basement of her home by her father later that day.
The investigation into JonBenet's kidnap and murder endured 15 years of missteps, resignations, scandal, false accusations, arrests, and the controversial exoneration of her family for any involvement they may have played in the cover-up of her death.
Intruder theorists have continued to dominate the public perception of the crime since day one, but that is about to change. Breaking six years of silence, James Kolar now comes forward to share startling new discoveries made during his lead role in the inquiry.
Foreign Faction provides an overview of the historical track of the investigation, and the prevailing theory of the involvement of a lone-intruder / sexual predator is disassembled once piece at a time. It includes a critical analysis of the physical evidence, family - witness statements, behavioral clues, and the "Touch" DNA evidence that calls into question whether one single perpetrator could have been responsible for this crime.
The journey of these investigative discoveries will leave you spellbound and crying out for justice long before you turn the last page...
