Ramsey Parents, Police to Meet for Ist Time in 2 Years
The Associated Press
ATLANTA - For the first time in
more than two years, John and Patsy
Ramsey are scheduled to meet today
with investigators to discuss the unsolved
slaying of their daughter, Jonßenet.
The couple, who authorities say are
still under suspicion in the 6-year-old‘s
1996 slaying, last met with police in June
They have rejected all other pro
posed meetings over the terms of the
Pricey Parking Surcharge to Land at RDU
Associated Press
RALEIGH - With more customers
driving in from outside the Triangle to
catch a flight, Raleigh-Durham
International Airport is embarking on
an ambitious parking plan.
RDU wants to pull ahead of current
demand by building more than 15,000
parking spaces between its two termi
nals, tripling its parking there. When the
parking project is completed in 10 years,
the airport will have thousands more
spaces than most airports now its size.
But the emphasis on parking may
come at a price - an airplane ticket sur
charge is being considered by the
Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority to
pay for the parking additions.

interviews, including all attempts to
them separately - until now.
The Ramseys are scheduled 'to
answer questions Monday in Atlanta in
separate sessions with a seven-member
investigative team led by Boulder, Colo.,
police Chief Mark Beckner, their attor
ney, L. Lin Wood said.
Patsy Ramsey will be interviewed first
and then John, as Boulder police
requested, Wood said Sunday.
There is no time limit on the inter
views, which will be videotaped and
“Some airports have the philosophy,
‘We have a certain number of parking
spaces and people can get them. After
that, we’re full,’” authority chairman
Bob Winston said. “We’ve taken the atti
tude at the airport that we want to make
enough spaces to meet the demand.”
RDU has been playing catch-up with
parking on and off for more than 20
Passenger traffic has increased 223
percent between 1985 and last year,
when 4.5 million passengers departed
from RDU. The airport could post
record traffic figures this year.
Many passengers are traveling farther
to take advantage of the cheaper fares
and can’t take advantage of taxis or local
public transportation to get to the air
transcribed by a court reporter at
Wood’s office. Wood said the interviews
could take about two days.
“John and Patsy agreed to each and
every condition imposed by the police
department, and we imposed no condi
tions ourselves,” Wood said.
However, the Ramseys will terminate
the interviews immediately if they are
“attacked, abused or treated unfairly,”
Wood said. Otherwise, they will help
with any “legitimate investigative
effort,” he said.
“Raleigh-Durham International is not
a three-county airport,” said Jim
Ritchey, general manager of the
Triangle Transit Authority. “It’s probably
a 30-county airport.”
RDU’s parking expansion started in
April with the opening of its 2,700-space
deck outside Terminal A. It was full for
the first time five days after it opened.
The next two to three years will see
the construction of a 6,150-space park
ing deck, the rebuilding of a larger park
ing toll plaza, construction of new cargo
buildings and the realignment of the
parking access roadways, for an esti
mated $l4O million.
The airport paid for the parking deck
that opened in April through revenue
Wood said the Ramseys agreed to the
interview in hopes of getting police to
move past a theory that they could have
played a role in their daughter’s death.
“John and Patsy realize they need the
Boulder Police Department to find the
killer of their daughter,” Wood said.
Jonßenet was found strangled and
beaten in the basement of her family’s
Boulder home Dec. 26, 1996. No sus
pect has ever been named, and the
Ramseys deny any involvement.
A grand jury convened in 1998 to
bonds. Another option is the surcharge,
which would require approval by the
Federal Aviation Administration.
The surcharge can be up to $4.50 -
that would bring in about $20.3 million
a year to RDU.
Airport Authority members have
mentioned the tax in passing but have
yet to seriously take up the issue. RDU
spokesman Mike Blanton said the air
port is leaning toward assessing the tax
for a building expansion at Terminal A,
not the parking project, but nothing has
been decided.
Still, even with abundant parking,
people will seek alternatives to driving
to die airport because of worsening
highway congestion, the TTA’s Ritchey
investigate Jonßenet’s death but didn’t
return an indictment.
Wood, the Ramseys’ Adanta-based
attorney, said he advised the couple not
to meet with police because he was con
cerned about “the potential for innocent
people to be caught up in a web of an
overzealous prosecutor and unobjective
or less than objective police officials.”
“I think it would be safe to say there’s
probably no lawyer who would recom
mend they participate in this kind of
interrogation,” Wood said.
