In 1996, the town of Boulder, Colorado was shaken to its core when 6-year-old JonBenét Ramsey was brutally murdered in her Colorado home the day after Christmas. Being a child pageant queen, videos of JonBenét performing on stage flooded every news outlet in the months and years that followed her tragic death. Now, over two decades later, JonBenét’s murder continues to be picked apart in documentaries and true crime series around the globe. Given that JonBenét’s case is still very much alive in 2021, a common question among those interested in the story is “what happened to JonBenét Ramsey house?” Keep reading for details on the JonBenét Ramsey family and JonBenét Ramsey house photos below.
Where Did JonBenet Ramsey Live?
JonBenét Ramsey and her family lived at 749 15th Street, Boulder, Colorado. Their 11,376 square foot, 5-bed and 8-bath suburban home was the site of JonBenét’s tragic murder in 1996.
JonBenet Ramsey House Inside
If it wasn’t for the dark history inside the walls of this red brick residence on 15th St in Boulder, CO – the JonBenét Ramsey home would be a highly sought-after piece of real estate. This cozy home nestled beneath majestic shade trees and protected by a tall iron gate sits in one of the most affluent areas of Boulder.
While the exterior of the home still resembles what it did in 1996, the inside bares almost no similarity now to what we saw from crime scene photos following the murder. Those who have owned the home since have done an incredible job of transforming it.
Pink paint and striped walls were replaced with earthy colors and lots of natural lighting to make the living room a warm, welcoming space.
The kitchen has undergone updates to give it a modern look with wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and a large center island.
Each of the 5 bedrooms has been completely redone. What was once Patsy and John Ramsey’s bedroom in the home is now decked out in updated furnishings that give it a lighter, contemporary feel.
What looks to originally be the basement has been made into a bonus family room with modern recessed lighting and a beautiful stone fireplace.
The backyard is quite impressive, too. Large balconies overlook a brick patio where there’s a BBG grill, ample space for gathering, and a basketball hoop!
Who Lives in the JonBenet Ramsey House Now?
The former JonBenét Ramsey house Boulder, CO is now owned by Carol Schuller Milner and her husband Tim Milner. Schuller Milner the daughter of televangelist Robert Schuller purchased the home in 2004.
While the Milner family did use the home as a primary residence for several years, they have since relocated. The couple have attempted to list the home several times in the past, but as of 2021 they are still the owners, and the residence remains unoccupied.
It was most recently listed for $1,985,000 before being removed from the market in July of 2014.
The Ramsey Family
The Ramsey family was living a quiet, luxurious life in Boulder, Colorado before the gruesome murder of JonBenét in 1996. Following their daughter’s death, the family relocated to Atlanta, Georgia.
Patsy, who had been battling cancer for years, passed away in 2006, and John would go on to remarry fashion designer Jan Rousseaux in 2011. Prior to his marriage to Rousseaux, however, John briefly dated Beth Holloway, mother of missing teen Natalie Holloway.
More on the Ramsey family below.
JonBenet Ramsey Parents
JonBenét Ramsey’s parents were John Bennet and Patsy Ramsey. The Ramsey’s shared two children together, JonBenét and Burke Ramsey, in addition to two other children from John’s previous marriage.
John and Patsy were originally listed as suspects in the murder of daughter JonBenét Ramsey, but Boulder County district attorney Alex Hunter refused to sign off on an indictment in 1999. Hunter said at the time there was insufficient evidence to prosecute.
This would turn out to be the right decision on Hunter’s part given that the couple was officially exonerated in 2008. Despite this, many still suspect that John and Patsy Ramsey were somehow involved. The Ramsey’s spent the years following their daughter’s murder maintaining their innocence.
JonBenet Ramsey Father
John Bennet Ramsey, JonBenét Ramsey father, was a successful businessman and the chief executive and president of Access Graphics, a tech company and subsidiary of Lockheed Martin.
John Ramsey was given the title “Entrepreneur of the Year” by Bolder Chamber of Commerce in 1996. In the years that followed JonBenét’s murder, John filed several defamation lawsuits against St, Martin’s Press, Time, Fox News, and several other networks for casting Ramsey in a negative light and often suggesting that he murdered his daughter.
JonBenet Ramsey Mother
Patsy Ramsey, JonBenét Ramsey mother, was a beauty pageant winner in the United States as well as former Miss West Virginia in 1977. It was Patsy who began enrolling JonBenét in children’s beauty pageants when she was a toddler.
Patsy Ramsey passed away in 2006 after a 13-year battle with ovarian cancer.
JonBenet Ramsey Siblings
JonBenét Ramsey had 4 siblings: brother Burke, half-brother John Andrew, half-sister Elizabeth, and half-sister Melinda Ramsey.
Burke Ramsey, JonBenét Ramsey brother was the eldest child of Patsy and John Ramsey. He was JonBenét’s only full blooded sibling and the only sibling present in the home at the time of the murder.
Burke, now 31, currently works as a software engineer.
John Andrew Ramsey
John Andrew Ramsey was the half-brother of JonBenét from his father’s previous marriage. Now in his 40s, Andrew recently spoke to ABC News about the murder of his half-sister, whom he was preparing to meet in Michigan the day of the murder.
At the time, John Andrew was spending the holidays with his mother and sister and had just boarded a plane enroute to greet his father’s family when he received the news about JonBenét.
Elizabeth Pasch Ramsey
Elizabeth, commonly known as Beth, was the half-sister of JonBenét Ramsey and worked as an airline stewardess prior to her tragic death in 1992.
Beth (age 22), along with her boyfriend Matthew Derrington (age 22) were involved in a car accident in which Matthew’s BMW collided with a truck outside of Chicago in during a bad bout of weather.
Melinda Ramsey, the oldest half-sister of JonBenét, was 27 when her little sister was murdered. She, like her brother John Andrew Ramsey, was enroute to visit her father’s family when she received news of JonBenét’s death.
What Happened to JonBenet Ramsey?
On the morning of December 26, 1996, at around 5:52 am, Boulder police received a 911 call from Patsy Ramsey in a frantic state begging for police to come to her home as her daughter had been kidnapped. When police arrived at the home, they were presented with a 2 ½ page handwritten ransom note demanding $118k for the girl’s return.
The note, found on the kitchen staircase, said that the kidnappers represented a “foreign faction” and state that JonBenét was “safe and unharmed” though it wouldn’t be long before the dark truth of JonBenét’s fate unraveled.
Was JonBenet Ramsey Body Found?
At around 1pm on the day that JonBenét was reported missing, an investigating detective had asked John Ramsey and a family friend to search the home to see if “anything seemed amiss.”
John headed into the basement of the residence first, an area yet to be searched. In the wine cellar downstairs, they discovered the body of JonBenét Ramsey with hands bound, mouth taped, and wrapped in a white blanket.
In addition to signs of assault, JonBenét had suffered a severe skull fracture as well as strangulation by way of a homemade garrote. There were also markings on the child’s neck that indicated she may have suffered a stun from a stun gun.
Who Killed JonBenet Ramsey?
Over 2 decades later and the world is still asking this question, with many filling in the blanks to try and pinpoint who really killed JonBenét Ramsey. Many theories throughout the years have pointed to the Ramsey family themselves due to strange inconsistencies with the case.
For starters, the homemade garrote that was used on JonBenét contained a broken piece of one of Patsy’s paintbrushes in her kit nearby.
The odd ransom note, written with Patsy’s pen and on her stationary, also seemed to use quotes straight out of movies like Ransom (1996) and other true crime flicks of the time. This led to some speculating that in a fit of rage, due to JonBenét wetting her bed, Patsy slammed her daughter’s head into something and then staged a ransom to cover up the murder.
Additionally, it was also rumored that Burke Ramsey, JonBenét’s brother, could’ve struck his sister with something after she took a slice of pineapple off his place and his parents staged the crime scene to protect their son. JonBenét had pineapple in her stomach despite not being served the fruit the night of her murder.
In 2008, however, after DNA found on JonBenét’s clothing and under her fingernails didn’t match any of the Ramsey’s, the family was officially cleared as suspects. To this day, JonBenét’s real murderer remains a mystery.
Is There a JonBenet Ramsey Ghost Photo?
There doesn’t seem to be any publicly available paranormal photos from the JonBenét Ramsey house or of the child herself.
Given that the home was purchased as a private residence shortly after JonBenét’s murder and her family’s relocation to Atlanta, it’s unlikely the residence has ever been investigated for paranormal happenings.
JonBenet Ramsey Documentary
