A grand jury will begin hearing evidence in the JonBenet Ramsey murder case sometime next month, The Denver Post reported today.
Police have asked District Attorney Alex Hunter to take the case to a grand jury in hopes of gaining an indictment in the 20-month-old case. Grand juries can compel witnesses to testify and produce evidence, a power that police and prosecutors lack.
The Post, citing sources close to the investigation, said the grand jury likely will hold their sessions at the Boulder County Justice Center.
No suspects have been named since the 6-year-old girl was found strangled in the family basement Dec. 26, 1996.
