JONBENET PROBE SEEKS TO TRACE ABUSER

An investigator for the district attorney's office has asked police in California to help track down a convicted child abuser who lived close to the home of JonBenet Ramsey and disappeared shortly after her death.

Investigators said the man, whose name was not released, was not a suspect. The 6-year-old beauty queen was found strangled Dec. 26 in her home. No arrests have been made.

Police in Oceanside, Calif., said investigators for the Boulder district attorney wanted information on the man, who had been arrested 32 years ago in Oceanside.

"He was interested because this guy lived six blocks from JonBenet Ramsey and disappeared right after the killing," police Sgt. Mike Goldsmith said. "They were looking for anybody and anything that might be related to the case and this guy lived nearby."
