“Since JonBenét’s murder, detectives have investigated leads stemming from more than 21,000 tips, letters, and emails. We have traveled to 19 states to interview or speak with more than 1,000 individuals,” the Boulder Police Department said in a statement on Wednesday, November 9, adding that they will work with private DNA labs in reviewing the case — "another tool to help further cold case homicide investigations."

As OK! previously reported, JonBenét's father, John, was disappointed the Boulder Police Department was not using the right resources to help solve the crime.

"We’re not asking the government to do anything that they shouldn’t be doing," John explained in an interview with NewsNation. "Just do your job, and do it as best it can be done. With today’s modern technology."
