On the JonBenét Beat

Who killed JonBenét?

It was the question of 1996, and, 20 years later, it’s still the hot-button topic of discussion among people seeking an answer – so get used to hearing the name a lot again. I mean, People just did a cover story on the unresolved crime, and CBS is mounting a miniseries à la The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

Anyway, the query also doubles as the working title for an upcoming original Lifetime movie about the death of little JonBenét Ramsey.

Who Killed JonBenét?, starring Eion Bailey (TV’s Once Upon a Time), Julia Campbell (a.k.a. Christie Masters-Christensen from Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion), and Michel Gill (USA Network’s Mr. Robot), will examine the case beginning with the 911 call that alerted authorities the little pageant girl had been found beaten and strangled in the basement of her family home. Bailey (pictured here) will play Steve Thomas, the detective on the case, while Gill and Campbell will portray the Ramseys, the subject of a lot of suspicion. 

Lifetime is hoping to have this one premiering in the fall. FYI.
