FIRST MAJOR NEWS STORY I REMEMBER LIVING THROUGH AS A CHILD

Inspired by @Peace_Out_List
  1. I remember when JonBenét Ramsey was murdered in 1996.
  2. I was 5 when she died, she was only 7 months older than me.
  3. I remember being so confused that someone could die on Christmas.
  4. At the time they were looking at her parents as suspects. I didn't understand that parents could do that.
    They were eventually cleared after some dna evidence.
  5. It was the first time I realized someone my age could die and that she could have been my friend.
  6. Her case still interests me today, it's so sad they haven't been able to close it.
