Best JonBenét mystic (2000)

Linda Arndt

For psychic power, Dorothy Allison had nothing on Linda Arndt, the onetime Boulder cop who was the first officer on the scene following the disappearance of JonBenét in December 1996. In a Good Morning America interview with ABC's Elizabeth Vargas, the network's designated JonBenét quiz-master (she also spent a week interrogating Steve Thomas), Arndt came across like an X-Files character too screwy for even Mulder to believe. Her dizzy account of the moment when her eyes met John Ramsey's over the body of his dead daughter ("My mind exploded. I mean it, literally...I saw black with thousands of lights") was easily the most hilarious performance in a case full of them.
