Ramsey case gets new investigator
The Daily Times-Call
BOULDER — A former Telluride town marshal has been named the Boulder County district attorney’s lead investigator in the nearly 9-year-old slaying of JonBenet Ramsey.
Jim Kolar replaced Tom Bennett, a former Arvada detective who resigned from the district attorney’s office last month.
Kolar was the chief of the Telluride marshal’s office for about 10 years before going to work last year as an investigator for Boulder District Attorney Mary Lacy. Before taking the Telluride job, he was a sergeant in the Boulder Police Department’s investigations division.
Six-year-old JonBenet was found beaten and strangled in her parents’ Boulder basement on Dec. 26, 1996. A grand jury investigation ended with no indictments, and no arrests have been made.
