Reward

  • Crime Stoppers. Tips may also be submitted anonymously through the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers website at crimeshurt.com. Those submitting tips through Crime Stoppers that lead to the arrest and filing of charges on a suspect(s) may be eligible for a cash reward from Crime Stoppers.  
  • Jameson's $2,000 Reward. Internet poster Jameson is offering a $2000 reward to anyone who can positively identify the source of the DNA co-mingled with JonBenét's blood and found on her clothing and later on her long johns using touch-DNA studies. This offer will cease to exist on December 31st, 2017.
  • Susan Bennett's $50,000 GoFundMe Campaign. On 3-26-17, Susan Bennett (known on-line as Jameson) began a GoFundMe campaign to raise $50,000 to help pay for DNA testing and a reward fund. This campaign purportedly has the support of John Ramsey's new wife, Jan (see Update 1) and a contribution of $1,000 from John Bennett Ramsey. Anyone considering donating to this campaign should consider the following:
    • Caveat Emptor Rule at GoFundMe. On her own forum, on 3-29-17, Jameson ridiculed a claim by Topix posterTheOneWhoSolvedThisCase that he was having GoFundMe investigate her for fraud: "Apparently this poster really thinks the people at GoFundMe let just anyone start a campaign like this - - I can tell you it took me weeks to get it approved. They checked on me and my connection" [to John Ramsey].
      • GoFundMe Sites Can Be Created in Minutes. Under How Does it Work? the GoFundMe site says "GoFundMe makes it incredibly easy to raise money online for the things that matter to you most. In less than a minute, you'll be able to personalize your fundraising campaign and share it with the people in your life." 
        • Topix poster heatherk79 confirmed that "I was just able to set up a GFM for a reward for info. leading to JBR's killer, in less than two minutes. Obviously, I immediately deleted it, but it allowed me to go all the way through and post my campaign. No approval necessary. I didn't even have to confirm my email address through a confirmation link sent to the email I entered." 
        • In short, Jameson's claim that it took 2 weeks to get approved appears to be a flagrant lie; though challenged repeatedly in a Topix thread titled Questions for Jameson which she is known to monitor (her most recent reply to that thread being around 9 pm 4-4-17), Jameson has offered no explanation.  
      • GoFundMe Sites Are NOT Vetted.  On its Common Questions page, under How do I know it's safe to donate to someone? GFM explicitly warns donors: "With hundreds of thousands of campaigns, it's not feasible for GoFundMe to investigate the claims stated by each Campaign Organizer. Rather, we provide visitors with the tools to make an informed decision as to who they choose to support. While GoFundMe and its payment partners do provide a number of safeguards to deter fraud, we must insist that visitors follow the advice stated on each and every campaign. "Only donate to people you personally know & trust."" 
        • Topix poster heatherk79's experience above appears to confirm that GFM essentially relies on a "honor system" rather than a pro-active (and expensive) system of vetting claims made by campaign organizers.
        •  In short, Jameson's claim that GFM "checked on me and my connection" [to John Ramsey] also appears either grossly misleading or flagrantly false. 
      • GoFundMe Refund Policy. GFM does offer refunds to donors if the campaign organizer commits a Misuse, defined as:
        • "The campaign organizer does not deliver funds to the Intended Beneficiary (as defined below);
        • The campaign’s content is inaccurate with respect to a material fact about the campaign organizer, beneficiary, or campaign that would induce a reasonable donor to donate to the campaign; and
        • The campaign organizer or beneficiary is formally charged with a crime directly related to their actions, omissions, and/or misrepresentations made by that individual in the campaign."

But this policy obviously requires users to report misuse and file claims. As shown below. reasonable questions have been raised about whether Susan Bennett is guilty of such Misuse.

    • Jan Rousseaux Ramsey's Purported Support Letter. As noted earlier, in Update 1 to the GoFundMe site, Susan Bennett stated: "Jan Ramsey, John's wife, posted this on the Internet and has given me permission to post it here.  Please carry it to other forums where it might help the fund grow." She then provides the text of a 3-paragraph testimonial that begins "Susan Bennett (AKA Jameson) is a private individual who has worked on the case of JonBenet' for 20 years.  She has worked tirelessly, at personal sacrifice for the cause of truth and justice for JonBenet' and her family. We believe Jameson and other investigators are closing in on a few viable suspects - perhaps a ring of criminals." (to see this letter, you have to go to Updates page and select the 1 button immediately below "shares on Facebook).
      • The identical letter was copied on 3-29-17 by Jameson to her own site. 
      • The identical letter was copied on 3-29-17 by Johnny Kerns to the FB site for his book The Coldest Case prefaced by the following: "From Jan Ramsey (wife of John):" 
      • Topix poster Jolamom queried Jameson on 4-4-17: Where is the link to the original letter supposedly written by "Jan Ramsey" and is that Jan Ramsey the Jan Rousseaux Ramsey married to John Bennett Ramsey, father of JonBenèt? Why didn't you link to the letter to begin with as proof she wrote it? 
        • Jameson's Reply. Jameson's reply came later that day: "Yes, Jan is John's wife. I am not going to get into why I posted this and not that or why here and not there. I do what I feel is best and am not EVEN going to try to explain all that to any poster. Like I said, life is too short. If I start doig that, nothing else will ever get accomplished. If you have a problem with that -- I guess YOU have a problem. Not me.(And I am not trying to be rude but it is what it is.)." 
        • Letter Cannot Be Located Through Google Searching. A Google search on the first sentence from this purported letter yields only a single link: to a Topix thread that evidently has been deleted. This letter is not posted at Jan Roussaeux's official FB page. As of 4-5-17, Jan's last posting at that site was made at Christmas. If she has a private page under Jan Ramsey or any other name, no one has been able to locate it.
        • Is Susan Bennett Lying About This Letter? There is no way to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jameson has been caught in a second lie. But it should be clear to any reader that Jameson spent more time composing an excuse than it would have taken to simply provide a link. Readers can draw their own conclusions about the authenticity of this letter. 
    • John Ramsey Donation. The second listed individual to donate to this campaign was JOHN RAMSEY, for $1,000.
      • Many on-line posters at Topix and Websleuths challenged this claim.
      • On her own forum, on 3-29-17, Jameson ridiculed a claim by Topix posterTheOneWhoSolvedThisCase that he was having GoFundMe investigate her for fraud: "Apparently this poster really thinks the people at GoFundMe let just anyone start a campaign like this - - I can tell you it took me weeks to get it approved. They checked on me and my connection and they can see from the bank account that the John Ramsey donation was from John Bennett Ramsey." 
      • On her own forum, Jameson claimed on 4-1-17: "They said there is no way John Ramsey donated to the fund since everyone knows many years ago Lin Wood said they'd never talk to me again. Well, the fact is Lin had the problem with me, not the Ramseys and I consider myself to be friends with John and his family. If they feel otherwise, they never told me. The donation certainly was from John and I have no idea how the BORG thinks I could have faked that - - or WHY I would have." 
      • Notwithstanding her defense of using John Ramsey's name, Topix poster KCinNYC reported on 4-4-17 that "I just checked the JBR GFM---Jameson has changed $1000 donation from "JOHN RAMSEY" , to ...ANONYMOUS."  
      • Again, despite being queried on this point by several different Topix posters, Jameson has offered no explanation for this change. Topix poster Right44 speculates: "My guess would be that the Ramsey PR Team of one,, L. Wood, pitched a girlie fit and got John's name changed to anonymous." L. Wood is a reference to Lin Wood, the Ramsey family lawyer who has handled all their defamation litigation. Several Topix posters had reported her use of John Ramsey's name to Mr. Wood in the days preceding this change. 
    • "Family" Tag. This campaign was originally tagged as "Family" even though Susan Bennett has no family relationship to John Bennett Ramsey. 
      • On her own forum, Jameson claimed on 4-1-17: "BORG complained that I had said I was family when I registered the campaign. They were lying. 

I had to pick a category for the campaign - my choices did not include crime mysteries, murders or rewards. The categories you can choose are: Special Olympics, Medical, Volunteer, Emergencies, Education, Memorials, Sports, Animals, Business, Charity, Communities, Creative, Competitions, Events, Faith, Family, Newlyweds, Other, Travel, and Wishes.
I chose family. In death, JonBenet became everyone's child. If someone disagrees with my choice - - they have a problem. Not me and not GoFundMe.

      • However, around 10:30 PM on 4-4-17, Topix poster Right44 reported:  "Jams has now removed the family tag from the GFM."
    • NCCS. For years, Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers website has accepted tips (anonymous or otherwise) about this case. If Susan Bennett wants to run a legitimate GFM campaign to help out, it is not clear why she doesn't entrust a credible organization such as NCCS (which has formal ties to BPD/Boulder DA etc.) with determining how the funds should be spent and who would qualify for any reward.
