BOULDER, Colorado (CNN) -- The Boulder Police Department has obtained handwriting samples from "about a half-dozen" employees of Access Graphics,the company headed by John Ramsey, father of slain 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet, CNN has learned.
Access Graphics Vice President Laurie Wagner confirmed a report that the employees had volunteered handwriting samples to police in an effort to rule out possible suspects in the case.
The three-page, handwritten ransom note was found by JonBenet's mother, Patricia Ramsey, in their Boulder home on December 26. It demanded $118,000, the amount of the work bonus John Ramsey received last year. John Ramsey found his daughter's body later that day in a basement room.
Parents John and Patricia Ramsey volunteered handwriting samples shortly after the murder, as did other family members and, reportedly, neighbors, friends and others who had access to the house and JonBenet.
People asked by police to give handwriting samples were told to write the acronym "SBTC," believed to be a reference to the now-defunct U.S. naval training center at Subic Bay in the Philippines, the Rocky Mountain News quoted unidentified sources as saying. John Ramsey was assigned to the Navy Public Works Center at Subic Bay during 1968-69, according to the Bureau of Navy Personnel in Washington.
