New Book Urges Colorado Law Enforcement to Reexamine JonBenet Ramsey and Other Cold Case Files

| From

DENVER, Colo. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Author and retired detective, Jim Benish, announces the release of a new book, "Closed Eyes: Who's Killing Our Children?" (ISBN: 978-0-982-4249-0-2). In the book, the author examines the murder cases of two Colorado children - Tracy Neef and Alie Berrelez - and discovers striking similarities to the JonBenet Ramsey murder. He discusses a possible suspect and explains the connections.

In 1993, Benish worked for the Thornton Police Department in Thornton, Colo. At this time, he reopened the Neef file; a murder that took place in 1984. After some investigation, he discovers that the initial suspect was cleared without due reason. However, Benish learns that the investigation was peppered with inexperience and error.

As the author digs deeper into files, he begins to draw connections. He learns that welding particles were on the victims' bodies and clothing; the suspect in the Neef and Berrelez cases was a welder. Benish also discovers that the suspect had been arrested or seen in close proximity to all of the crime scenes.

"Almost one year ago, the Ramsey family was eliminated as suspects," Benish says. "This suspect is still at large and the jurisdictions in charge need to combine their efforts to yield resolution."

Benish strongly believes that this suspect is a serial offender and is the key to solving these cold cases.

"The public has a right to know," Benish adds. "It's very possible that this suspect continues to prowl the neighborhoods. Since 2002, he's been arrested and convicted of another sexual crime; he's finally on the Colorado Sexual Offender list. To date, he has only been revealed to be a person of interest or suspect on the Neef case."
