JonBenét Ramsey was a child beauty queen. On December 25, 1996, she and her family opened Christmas presents, including a new bike, which she rode up and down an alleyway with joy.
Twenty-six years after JonBenét’s murder, which has still not been solved, her father, John Ramsey, said that the bicycle was the thing he remembered most about that day. “Oh, dad!” she cried out. “I asked her to let me go just one more time, but she said no, we’ll do that tomorrow,” he told The Sun.
