JonBenet Ramsey: Photos of what she might have looked like from six to sixteen

After nearly seventeen years, the death of Boulder's JonBenet Ramsey is still capable of commanding attention, as exemplified by the way the national media's covered the release earlier today of a never-acted-upon 1999 grand jury indictment aimed at her parents, John and Patsy (who died in 2006). But for some people, the obsession has never ebbed. There's no shortage of videos marking JonBenet's birthdays through the years -- she'd be 23 today -- and we found one that attempts to imagine what she would have looked like from ages six to sixteen.
