An attorney for the parents of JonBenet Ramsey said Thursday that Colorado Gov. Bill Owens was irresponsible when he claimed the couple has not cooperated in the investigation of their child’s 1996 slaying. “The governor of Colorado not only took potshots at John and Patsy Ramsey,” said Atlanta-based lawyer Lin Wood, “but the governor of Colorado lied.” At a Wednesday news conference, Owens said he would like the Ramseys “to quit hiding behind their attorneys, quit hiding behind their PR firm, come back to Colorado (and) work with us to find the killers, no matter where this trail may lead.” Countered Woods: “John and Patsy Ramsey have offered to travel to Colorado and meet with Governor Owens. They have offered to go out and meet with his advisory committee, and they have repeatedly offered, during the life of the grand jury, to testify before the grand jury.”
