This is kind of like

a bedtime story.

Once upon a time there was

a girl named JonBent.

She looked like a princess,

but she wasn't

She was just a normal girl

who wanted to play outside

and ride her bike.

( whispers ) As I lay me down

to sleep,

I pray the lord my soul to keep.

If I should die before I wake,

I pray the lord my soul to take.

That's the last thing

I remember,

Saying those words.

Then I fell asleep.

I don't remember anything

after that.

911, what's your emergency?

( Patsy ):

What's going on, ma'am?

755 15th Street.

What's going on, ma'am?

We have a kidnapping!

Hurry, please!

Explain to me what's going on,


There's... we have a--

there's a note left

and our daughter's gone!

There's a note and

your daughter is gone?


How old is your daughter?

Six years old.

She's blonde.

Six years old.

Ok, how long ago was this?

I don't know!

( gasping )

I just got the note

and my daughter's gone!

Does it say who took her?

There's a... there's

a ransom note here.

It's a ransom note?

It says "SBTC Victory."


And what's your name?

Are you-

Patsy Ramsey.

I'm the mother.

I'm sending an officer over,



Uh, do you know how long

she's been gone?

No, I don't.

Please send someone!

I am, honey.


I just need you to take

a breath.


Hurry, hurry!

Oh my...

Patsy? Patsy?


That's Steve Thomas.

He's a Detective.

Maybe he's the one who is going

to solve this puzzle.


My meth head waving

the butcher knives.

Are you cutting him a deal?

I've got bigger fish to fry

right now, Steve.

What're you giving him?

Uh, community service

and rehab again?

Wait, I have an idea.

Why don't you throw

in a dental plan?

Not a bad idea.

I hear meth's terrible

on the teeth.

Do you guys prosecute anybody?

Commander wants us

in this meeting, too.

It's about the Ramsey girl.

Isn't that homicide?

They want to take the body back

to Atlanta for burial.

We need it here for evidence.

The autopsy's been done.

The case isn't.

We need to do some more testing.

And we need to talk to them.


Well, you can't ransom

the body for an interview.

We're not ransoming the body.

It's just way to premature

to release it.

Do I need to remind you that the

Ramseys are important people?

We're not finished

with her yet.

Have you read

the autopsy report?

Why don't you go get us

that interview?

You can't ransom the body.

What the hell was that?

Quinn briefed you?

Not really.

We need to get up to speed.

I'll talk to Linda,

she was there.

I need this closed fast.

The city's gonna come apart

if there's a maniac

running around.


Are you ready for this?

What do you mean?

Homicide isn't narcotics.

I've been an investigator

for 13 years, John.

I've worked hundreds of cases.

You're in good hands.

The scene wasn't preserved.


What do you mean, the

scene wasn't preserved?

It just wasn't, alright?


What went on in that house?

It was right over here.

I moved it here.

That's mommy and daddy.

Mommy was Miss West Virginia


She put me in lots of

pageants too.

She said I looked so pretty

in a tiara.

( sirens wailing

in the distance )

Oh, John...

( police radio noise )

Are you in charge?

I am. I am.

Just tell me what happened.

I- I went into her room

at 5:

to wake her for our Michigan

trip but she wasn't there,

and I thought maybe

she had just got up early

in the excitement but I came

downstairs and I found the note.

Oh my god.

"Mr. Ramsey, listen carefully.

"We are a group of individuals
