THE RANSOM NOTE LIE!
THE RANSOM NOTE LIE!
Patsy Ramsey had a super low chance, almost to the point of elimination of being the author of the ransom note; however, we were lied to about that.
In fact, there were other suspects that were way closer to being the author of the ransom note, yet they were kept hidden from the public.
Former DA Alex Hunter was deposed on 11/27/01 -- it was related to the Wolf case. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #1, RE: Exerpts from Hunter's Deposition 105 9 Wood: Chief Beckner confirmed yesterday that the 10 investigation had retained the services of Chet 11 Ubowski, obviously through CBI, Leonard Speckin, 12 Edwin Alford and Richard Dusak to at various times 13 perform handwriting analysis on the ransom note in 14 comparing it and analyzing other individuals' 15 writings. You were familiar with those four 16 individuals? 17 Hunter: Yes. 18 Wood: Are you familiar with their results as 19 they pertain to Patsy Ramsey? 20 Hunter: Yes. 21 Wood: Those four individuals are well respected, 22 are they not? 23 Hunter: Yes. 24 Wood: You also know Howard Ryle and Lloyd 25 Cunningham? 106 1 Hunter: Yes. 2 Wood: Within the community Howard Ryle and Lloyd 3 Cunningham are highly regarded and well respected, 4 aren't they? 5 Hunter: Yes. 6 Wood: You were given the benefit of Howard Ryle 7 and Lloyd Cunningham's opinions in this matter in a 8 presentation that was done for the investigation 9 through the Ramsey attorneys, correct? 10 Hunter: Yes. 11 Wood: I'm correct that there was not of the six 12 individuals any examiner that identified Patsy Ramsey 13 as the author of the note; am I right? 14 Hunter: That's right. 15 Wood: These were not people who came there to 16 identify her or not identify. These six individuals, 17 understanding two of them were employed by the 18 defense, I think you fairly agreed were trying to be 19 professional, thorough, and objective and reach the 20 right result under their standards of handwriting 21 analysis; am I right? 22 Hunter: Yes. 23 Wood: The sum total of the investigators and the 24 individuals I've been over that with were hired by 25 the Boulder Police Department along with Mr. Ubowski. 107 1 With respect to Patsy Ramsey, you have -- it's been 2 described at one point again on a scale that we don't 3 necessarily, I don't know if it's an agreed-upon 4 scale, butfor purposes of trying to discuss the 5 reports, there was a description of a one-to-five 6 scale with five being elimination. And you have 7 publicly acknowledged that the sum total of the 8 handwriting analysis done by the investigation on 9 Patsy Ramsey that you would agree that she was 10 somewhere about a 4.5; is that right, on that scale? 11 Hunter: That's roughly right. 12 Wood: Not eliminated but very close to it, am I 13 right? 14 Hunter: Yeah, I can't remember, you know, I would 15 be more comfortable saying four on that scale. I 16 can't remember the 4.5. 17 Wood: And I think when you were asked about it, 18 you said that that was close, the bottom line being 19 that they placed the chances of her writing the note 20 as I believe you described it as very low -- 21 Hunter: Right. 22 Wood: -- is that right? 23 Hunter: Yes, very low. 24 Wood: And without asking for names, there were 25 other individuals who were under suspicion whose 108 1 handwriting was analyzed that were not eliminated as 2 the author of the note; am I right? 3 Hunter: That's correct.
