Finding Jonbenet's Killer Remains 'Final Goal'

Boulder, CO. (AP) -- Jonbenet Ramsey's aunt says the family still holds out hope the 6-year-old beauty queen's killer will be found.

Pam Paugh says catching the killer is the family's final goal, and they won't stop until it is reached.

Paugh's comments came this morning on CBS' "Early Show," a day after prosecutors cleared Jonbenet's father, brother, and deceased mother in her slaying.

Paugh says her late sister, Patsy Ramsey, died knowing that she had a clear conscience.

Patsy Ramsey was a native of Parkersburg, West Virginia and a former Miss West Virginia. She died in June 2006 of ovarian cancer at age 49 in Atlanta, where the family moved after Jonbenet's death.

Prosecutors say DNA taken from a few skin cells show that the killer wasn't a family member.

Investigators are hoping to locate a match in a growing national dna database that currently has more than 5 million offenders' profiles.
