John Ramsey, the father of murdered child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey, remarried on July 21 to Jan Rousseaux, according to The Denver Post. Ramsey is remarrying five years after his wife, and mother of JonBenet, died of ovarian cancer, the Daily Camera reports.
Ramsey, 67, wed Rousseau, 53, a twice-divorced Las Vegas designer in Charlevoix, Mich., according to People magazine. The pair met at a mutual friend’s wedding in Denver two years ago. Ramsey spoke out to the National Enquirer speculating that his deceased daughter would be proud of him:
I have no doubt she will be smiling.
According to the Daily Camera, JonBenet was only 6-years-old when she was found dead in the basement of her boulder home over the Christmas holiday in 1996. 9News reports that JonBenet’s birthday is coming up on Aug. 6 and had she lived, she would be turning 21-years-old. Her murder remains unsolved to this day.
In 2008, DNA evidence from the JonBenet murder case positively cleared both John and Patsy Ramsey as suspects in their daughter’s murder and pointed to a third party whose DNA profile is not currently in any criminal database, according to 7News.
Westword reports that the Ramsey house in Boulder went up for sale again in Feb. 2011 -- the third time the house has been put up for sale in recent years -- for $2.3 million.
