  The Official Website of
The Last Christmas Of JonBenet Ramsey can be purchased at this 
site by clicking  'Purchase Book' at top of page, and is also available for digital Kindle-like devices at This 420-page book is written in documentary and scenario  style, rather than how true crime books are traditionally written with pictures,  flourishing metaphors, and entertaining nuances, as I believed that this book should  be presented in a style similar to what a prosecutor would employ when addressing  a jury. 

Following is an overview of this book, a writing that seeks to determine who is  responsible for the heretofore unsolved murder of celebrity 6-year-old JonBenet  Ramsey that occurred over Christmas night 1996 in Boulder, Colorado:  

​ In building a persuasive case for naming JonBenet's killer, complete  crime scenarios are  presented wherein suspect types who could have  remotely been responsible for this crime  are inserted to determine the  plausibility of considering them as a viable suspect. Various  members  of the Ramsey family are also placed in murder scenarios to determine  who (if  any) can be regarded as a viable suspect. 

Popularly held theories regarding JonBenet's death that exclude Patsy  Ramsey and an  intruder as suspects are explored to determine at  what point the respective theory is no  longer plausible and implodes  under the weight of its own incredulity. A chapter is devoted  to an  exhaustive psycho-linguistic analysis of the infamous ransom letter and  its author,  that serves to further support the definitive naming of her  killer. 

Explanations are provided to questions that the public has long sought  answers to,  including: Who killed JonBenet and why? What were the  circumstances surrounding her  death? What were the conditions and  causes that contributed to the killer's motive(s)? And what logic and  psychological factors were at play that directed the actions taken by  the  killer. including the crime's elaborate and over-staged cover-up  that was designed to project  the crime onto a sexual predator type  suspect?        

From the publisher: There has been no comprehensive in-depth analysis taken from a  multidimensional perspective of this infamous murder case as undertaken by this author.  Here, Laurence Smith purports to show beyond reasonable doubt not only the suspect 
types  who could not have committed this unspeakable crime, based on  existing forensic  evidence along with the psychopathology characteristics that would have been present but  weren't, but conclusively who the actual killer could only have been. 

Mr. Smith's compelling and brilliant expose of this infamous crime reflects his masterful  understanding of the logic, forensics, and psychological factors that comprised the crime,  enabling him in the process to arrive at a definitive finding that is more than credible.
