Boulder detective feared she was stalked by Ramsey friend

The Associated Press

BOULDER ó The first detective on the scene at the home of JonBenet Ramsey says in an affidavit that she feared for her life and believed a friend of Patsy Ramsey was stalking her, The Boulder Daily Camera reported Sunday.

Linda Arndt, in papers filed in U.S. District Court in a lawsuit against the Boulder Police Department, also said she had kept some of her case notes after resigning because she feared the department would lose them.

The claims were made in affidavits filed last week in Denver U.S. District Court. Arndt also said former Police Chief Tom Koby told her that he believed Patsy Ramsey was responsible for the death of JonBenet. Arndt is quoted in the affidavit as saying the evidence points to John Ramsey as being responsible.

Calls to the police department and the lawyer representing John and Patsy Ramsey were not immediately returned Sunday. Arndt also was not available for comment.

Arndt is suing the department, claiming she was depicted as incompetent in her handling of the childís death. The 6-year-old beauty pageant contestantís body was found in the basement of her family home Dec. 26, 1996, hours after her parents reported she had been kidnapped.
