The investigators also allege that JonBenet’s parents, John and Patsy, covered up the crime.

“After they sealed off JonBenet’s room, the crime scene technicians went through it, [and] they apparently found feces smeared on a box of candy she had [gotten] for Christmas,” said former housekeeper Linda Hoffman, according to the Daily Mail.
Hoffman recalled a time when she allegedly found “fecal material the size of a grapefruit on the sheets” of JonBenet’s bed.
