Private Investigator Claims Links Between Man Who Killed Himself And JonBenet Ramsey's Murder

The private investigator told INSIDE EDITION that the man's boots matched marks left inside the Ramseys' home.

More than 20 years after the killing of six-year-old JonBenet Ramsey, a private investigator once hired by her family says a man who lived nearby may have played a part in her death.

Ollie Gray, who now suffers from Parkinson's disease, continues probing the child's murder on his own time.

A 26-year-old man who lived nearby may have had something to do with the grisly slaying, he says.

"I think that there's something there," Gray told INSIDE EDITION. 

Michael Helgoth lived a few miles from the Ramsey home in Boulder, Colorado, and shot himself to death less than two months after the girl's death.

Helgoth's death may not have been a suicide, he says. "I think it's worth following up on," he said.

Gray said he obtained a pair of boots once worn by Helgoth, its footprint is similar to one found in the Ramsey basement, where JonBenet's body was found.

A Helgoth family member said relatives do not believe he killed JonBenet. 

The Boulder Police Department said the case is being investigated.
