The murder of JonBenet Ramsay has baffled investigators, but as the 20th anniversary of her death approaches a forensic psychiatrist says he can prove someone isn’t telling the truth.
Steven Pitt, who worked on the investigation, tells People the key to solving the case lies in the fruit found in JonBenet’s digestive tract.
According to the publication, ‘Pitt says the 6-year-old's autopsy showed there was pineapple in her digestive tract, suggesting the fruit hadn't had time to fully digest before she was killed.’
However, the girl’s family said she hadn’t eaten any fruit prior to her death.
'The fingerprints on the bowl or cup that were used to give JonBenét the pineapple were Patsy's fingerprints,' Pitt said. 'It suggests someone is not telling the truth about what happened at that home that night.'
As for solving the case, Pitt said: 'It has been solved,' adding, 'I think in the minds of lots of people, the case is solved. The question is, Do I think anyone will ever be criminally charged? No.'
Meanwhile, JonBenet’s brother Burke Ramsey is set to reveal what he knows about the case in an upcoming episode of Dr. Phil. The exclusive will air September 12, 13 and 14.
JonBenét Ramsey was found murdered in her parent’s basement on December 26, 1996, eight hours after she was reported missing.
