The Ramseys' investigation has been regarded skeptically by many, who see it as an attempt by the affluent couple to deflect attention from themselves or to win sympathy from a jury pool if either or both are charged with their daughter's murder. But Haddon told TIME the probe has elicited nine "substantial, credible leads," all tied to suspects who are not John or Patsy Ramsey. None of these leads are yet strong enough to hand over to the Boulder authorities, Haddon said. But he insisted that the investigation is not a hedge against possible criminal indictments. "The Ramseys won't have any peace until it's solved," he said. With that sentiment, at least, nearly everyone can agree.
