R.I.P. PATSY RAMSEYPatsy Ramsey, a completely 100% innocent woman whose name is absolutely not synonymous with "matricide", has died of cancer at age 49.
John and Patsy Ramsey, as they appeared in the South Park episode, "Butters' Very Own Episode".
ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- Patsy Ramsey, mother of slain 6-year-old JonBenet, died Saturday of ovarian cancer, her lawyer told CNN. She was 49.
She died about 3:30 a.m. at her father's house with her husband by her side, lawyer Lin Wood said. She was diagnosed with cancer in 1993 but was cancer-free for nine years until a relapse three years ago.
The unsolved killing of JonBenet in December 1996 put Patsy and John Ramsey, the girl's parents, in the spotlight.
A grand jury investigation into the death of the child beauty pageant winner ended without charges in 1999.
JonBenet's beaten and strangled body was found in the basement of the family home in Boulder, Colorado, the day after Christmas.
The Ramseys said an intruder committed the crime, but they remained the subject of suspicion and speculation.
She never was able to find the elusive "some Puerto Rican guy" who murdered her daughter.
Whenever I think of Patsy Ramsey, I'll always remember those immortal words: "Paint... must paint... everything clean. Paint... must paint... everything clean... everything new... Ungh. Paaiint. Everything clean. Everything new. Paaiint. I don't think Daddy's shopping. I think Daddy's going out "wrestling" again. Paaiint. Paaiint. Must be made clean. New. Clean. Never be clean. Must... kill? The only way? Must kill Butters. Paaiint."
