DENVER (AP) — The father of JonBenet Ramsey is supporting an online petition asking Colorado’s governor to intervene in the investigation into her death more than 25 years ago by putting an outside agency in charge of DNA testing.

The 6-year-old was found dead in her family’s home in Boulder in 1996.

John Ramsey told KUSA-TV he wants DNA evidence that was never tested to be transferred away from Boulder police.

A spokesperson for Gov. Jared Polis says Colorado will look into how it can help in using new technology to identify the killer. Boulder police say they are committed to solving the case.
