Arrow Media's feature-length documentary, JonBenet Ramsey: What Really Happened?, begins streaming on discovery+ on 4 January 2021.
The film presents new information about one of modern history’s most perplexing cold cases. It was shortly after Christmas 1996 when a six-year old beauty queen was mysteriously killed in her idyllic home while her family slept upstairs. It is a crime which continues to captivate America. For the first time, viewers will be able to hear the previously unreleased audio diaries of Lou Smit, famed Colorado Springs homicide detective who was coaxed from retirement to try and bring some clarity to the chaos surrounding this case. The film also features Lou Smit’s son and daughter, his investigative team, and members of the Ramsey family including John Ramsey and his son John Andrew, as they reflect on what really happened during those early days of the investigation – a case that fascinates a nation more than two decades later.
