ATLANTA -- This month, JonBenet Ramsey would have turned 21 years old. The child beauty queen was killed in her Colorado home 15 years ago.

The high profile trial of Ramsey's parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, in the unsolved murder made for tabloid fodder and national news headlines for years afterward.

JonBenet Ramsey was born in Atlanta in 1990, and moved with her family to Colorado as an infant. In December 1996, 6-year-old JonBenet's body was found in the basement of the family's home in Boulder, Colo., about 8 hours after she was reported missing by her parents.

Police in Colorado suspected members of her family, but the ongoing investigation eventually exonerated JonBenet's brother and parents.

JonBenet was buried in Marietta. Her parents moved back to Metro Atlanta in the late 1990s, settling in Vinings. Patsy Ramsey died from ovarian cancer in Atlanta in 2006, and buried next to her daughter.

As part of a profile of the Ramsey case, Denver-based newspaper Westword published an artist's rendering this month of what JonBenet would have looked like today.
