**Preventing Child Sexual Abuse**
JonBenét Ramsey - Links to resources pertaining to the 1996, Christmas night murder of six-year-old JonBenét Ramsey in her Boulder, Colorado home. Despite a national obsession with this case, no one really knows what happened that cold winter night, although JonBenét's parents continued for years to remain under an "umbrella of suspicion."
**CrimeShots © is hosting these links that we have compiled concerning this case in hopes that some day, somehow, JonBenét will receive her long overdue justice.

Child Abuse Survivor Resources - Child abuse is one of the most commonly overlooked crime. It is also the most commonly committed. Everyday more and more children are neglected, beaten, raped, touched, or mentally tortured. As you read this, one little girl is crying out in pain, one little boy is begging not to be touched "there" anymore. Right now, children are praying for someone to help them when they can't help themselves. And we close our ears and avert our eyes.

Child Abduction Murder Research Project
In late 1993, the Criminal Division of the Washington State Attorney General's Office undertook a 3-1/2 year research project, partially funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, to study the investigation of child abduction murder cases. This research was undertaken in an effort to determine characteristics of these cases that will help make future law enforcement investigations of this nature more efficient and effective.
During this research project, over 600 child abduction murder cases across the United States were reviewed and the investigating detectives interviewed. Through this case review and the detective interviews, data was gathered that gives insight into what investigative techniques tend to be most productive.There are some findings that stand out:
Due to the landmark finding in this initial research project, the project has been extended for an additional three years to further study these cases. The continued study hopes to be able to more clearly classify killer characteristics in these cases, thus allowing detectives and case managers to better prioritize and focus future investigations.
Copies of the research findings report are available by calling the Washington State Attorney General's Office, Criminal Justice Division, 800-345-2793.
