Confession Of JonBenet Ramsey's Murder Uncovered

A prime suspect in the JonBenet Ramsey case, Gary Oliva, has allegedly confessed to killing the six year old in letters that he sent to a former high school classmate. 

The convicted pedophile, who is currently serving jail time on a ten year sentence in Colorado for child pornography, explains in the letters that the death was an accident. 

DailyMailTV uncovered the letters, which were addressed to music publicist Michael Vail and have been submitted as new evidence to the Boulder Police Department. 

"I never loved anyone like I did JonBenét and yet I let her slip and her head bashed in half and I watched her die," Oliva allegedly confesses in the letter.

"It was an accident. Please believe me.

"She was not like the other kids."

Other fragments from the letters suggest Oliva believed if Ramsey was still alive they would be living together with a family on a private island and begged Vail to continue writing to him despite being "evil and murder[ing] children". 

"JonBenét completely changed me and removed all evil from me," he wrote. 

"Just one look at her beautiful face, her glowing beautiful skin, and her divine God-body, I realized I was wrong to kill other kids.

"Yet by accident she died and it was my fault."

The letters were allegedly written by Oliva after he was arrested and imprisoned in 2016 for possessing child pornography.

According to DailyMailTV, a redacted police report of his 2016 arrest shows he also had hundreds of photos of Ramsey on his phone when it was seized. 

As yet no one has been charged with the murder of Ramsey since the child's body was discovered by her father John Ramsey in the family basement on December 26, 1996. 

Oliva was also reportedly using an address just ten blocks away from the Ramsey home at the time of her murder. 

Vail first had suspicions of Oliva's involvement in the JonBenet case after a phone call on December 26, 1996 where he declared he had hurt a girl. 

"I had known Gary from my time at high school and we had kept in touch," Vail said. 

"When he said he had hurt a little girl I tried to get more information out of him.

"The only other thing he told me was that he was in the Boulder, Colorado area.

"On December 27 I read on the front page of my local newspaper 'Girl, 6, slain in Boulder, Colorado'. I knew I had to alert the police.

"I immediately called the Boulder Police Department and told them what I knew about Gary and what he had told me just days earlier. They didn't get back to me.

"Three months later I called the police again to find out what was going on in its investigation of Gary, but instead I was sent to a police answering machine set up for tips on the JonBenét case.

"I left a message on the recorded line and again I never heard back from investigators."

Vail said he has continued to fight for justice for the Ramsey family and to ensure that Oliva is not released on bail when he is eligible in 2020. 

"I've continued this for decades now, even with him being in prison. But he has only just admitted to killing her," Vail told DailyMailTV

"He believes he will go to hell if he doesn't admit to it.

"I have now sent these letters to Boulder police in the hope it will get Gary to provide them with firm proof and to name who else may have been involved in JonBenét's death.

"I hope it helps bring justice for JonBenét and peace for her family.

''Now they have this, a written confession, the police need to charge him with her murder.

"The thought that he could be released on probation next year chills me to the bone because he should never be allowed out.

"He is a danger to society.

"The day he walks free is the day I will be terrified for every child and family."
