Police will talk to R

BOULDER John and Patsy Ramsey will meet Monday with seven investigators from Boulder police and the Boulder County District Attorney's Office, their lawyer confirmed.

"If necessary, we will go into Tuesday," said attorney Lin Wood, who will host the meetings in his Atlanta law office.

"I talked to Chief (Mark) Beck-ner this afternoon, and he is going to be ready, and we are going to be ready to receive him."

Boulder police have not spoken to the Ramseys since June 1998 regarding the death of their daughter, JonBenet, on Dec. 26, 1996.

The Ramseys have put no restrictions on the interviews, Wood said, except to have both Wood and a private investigator working for the Ramseys present.

"They desperately want this investigation to move forward," Wood said. "They have agreed to everything."

As requested by police, Patsy Ramsey will be interviewed first.

The interviews will be videotaped and transcribed by a court reporter, with no time limits.

Investigators present at the interviews will include Chief Beck-ner, Cmdr. Tom Wickman and contracted prosecutors Bruce Levin and Michael Kane.

No full-time employee of the District Attorney's Office is scheduled to be present.

According to Wood, the Ramseys are participating in the interviews against his advice because they want to "advance the investigation."

Beckner refused to comment on the scheduled interviews Monday.

"Any information that comes out, we want to come from them," Beckner said.
