BOULDER -- District Attorney Alex Hunter is still leaning toward convening a grand jury to hear evidence in the JonBenet Ramsey murder case, but he refuses to be specific about when and if he will make that decision.

Hunter also said if he were to convene a grand jury, he would not reveal the starting date, the location or the work schedule of the jurors.

``... but the preparations have been made for this to fall into place when and if we need it,'' Hunter said Wednesday.

Boulder police handed Hunter's office the case on June 2. Since that time, Hunter's office has interviewed JonBenet's parents, John and Patsy Ramsey , identified additional witnesses, reviewed the opinions of experts and submitted evidence to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation labs.

``We are, as expected, gaining access to the personal documents of the Ramseys that we were promised at the end of June,'' Hunter said about documents from the Ramseys . ``These documents are currently being assembled and reviewed.''

The DA's office also expects to get outtakes from an Atlanta television station that interviewed the Ramseys . Boulder officials do have a copy of the English documentary about JonBenet's life. A Denver television station has said it will broadcast the documentary next week.

Also, DNA expert and attorney Barry Scheck is scheduled to return to Colorado sometime in the next two weeks to review more information in the 19-month-old investigation.
