John Ramsey is internationally known for being the father of JonBenét Ramsey. The 6-year-old pageant queen was brutally murdered and found dead in the basement of her parents' Boulder, Colo., home on December 26, 1997.

More than 25 years later, there have been no arrests made in connection with the case and it has become one of the most famous true crime stories in the United States. Now, the still-grieving father is opening up on the death of his first daughter, Beth, who passed away in 1992.

As OK! previously reported, the 78-year-old has slammed the local authorities for initially putting all of their focus on him and his wife, Patsy, as suspects.

"They made their decision on who was guilty on day one ... well before they even got crime scene evidence," he explained at the time. "And I think they just said, 'Well, it's always the parents.' That was the whole strategy to solve the case. It wasn't to look at it openly."
