ATLANTA, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- Fresh evidence in the Jon Benet Ramsey case could lead to a suspect seven years after the young beauty queen's slaying at her parents' Boulder, Colo. home.
DNA found in a blood stain on the 6-year-old's underwear has been turned over to the FBI to try and match, CNN reported Saturday.
"The DNA was never pursued by the Boulder PD in terms of tying to get it into any state or national databank," Atlanta attorney L. Lyn Wood told CNN.
Earlier tests showed the sample was from a male who was unrelated to the Ramseys, Wood said.
Wood said Boulder police did not pursue the lead and instead focused on the Ramsey family as suspects.
"They actually spent money and time trying to come up with an innocent explanation for the presence of that DNA," he said. "Any objective investigation into this child's murder would have focused on DNA."
