A man suspected in the slaying of 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey nearly a decade ago was arrested Wednesday in Thailand, the district attorney said.  CBS reports that the suspect was arrested on unrelated sex charges and is being deported to the United States.  JonBenet was found beaten and strangled in the basement of her family’s Bolder, Colorado home on December 26, 1996. 

Ramsey family attorney Lin Wood said in Atlanta that the arrest was vindication for JonBenet’s parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, who came under suspicion in the slaying.

Wood said the Ramseys learned about the suspect a least a month before Patsy Ramsey’s death June 24 after a long battle with ovarian cancer.

“It’s been a very long 10 years, and I’m just sorry Patsy isn’t here for me to hug her neck,” the attorney said.
