On pages 1 and 278, he drops the name simply as something he looked into - the ransom note is in
     a list of documents he looked at and he mentioned he did this other thing right before he went to
     Boulder to consult on the Ramsey case - - you know, just name-dropping. On pages 8-9, he said
     that one word he looked at in the Ramsey case was etc./etcetera - some suspect wrote it out the
     long way when giving a police sample and normally wrote it in the abbreviated form.

     Then there are pages 16 and 17 where he devotes two paragraphs to the Ramsey case.

     In Author Unknown I will not discuss evidence or reveal undisclosed information about
     pending cases, not even to correct misinformation published in the press or on the Internet.

     The JonBenét Ramsey homicide investigation, a difficult and painful business for everyone
     associated with it, produced an early bump in my learning curve. In 1997, when moving
     from tragic denouements to actual homicides, and from Stratford-upon-Avon to Quantico, it
     was perhaps inevitable that I should make a mistake, and I did. In June 1997, seven months before I was retained by the Boulder Police
     Department, before any case documents were available to me, I privately speculated with
     other observers concerning the Ramsey homicide, and actually took an uninvited and (as I
     would learn) unwelcome initiative to assist John and Patsy Ramsey, by private letter.  At the time I knew virtually nothing about "true crime forums" and "online
     chatrooms," but was directed by others to despicable activity on the Internet by "jameson,"
     an individual whose months-long obsession with the details of the killing of JonBenét -
     ascribed by jameson to a Colorado University friend of the older Ramsey boy - was too vile
     in its voyeuristic description to be a prank, too well informed to be madness, too full of
     seeming relevance to be ignored.
     Competent and dedicated detectives, though much maligned in the press, were
     investigating the slaying of a child. As I later learned, the police had already investigated
     and dismissed jameson as a "code six wingnut," a phrase I had not heard before but one
     that I would soon come to appreciate. I regret the mistakes of intruding so quickly. That beginners mistake impressed
     upon me a sense of limit when venturing from the safe world of academic debate into the
     minefield of criminal investigation. In January 1997, (his error, he certainly meant 1998) when
     brought onboard by the Boulder police, I took the lesson to heart, started over, and did the
     best I could, for justice and JonBenét. Though I am bound by a
     confidentiality agreement not to discuss the investigation or court proceedings, I do stand
     by the statements that I have made for the record regarding that case and believe that the
     truth will eventually prevail."
