BOULDER, Colo. — One of the suspects in the death of JonBenet Ramsey on Christmas night nearly 20 years ago was charged earlier this week in Colorado on suspicion of downloading child pornography.

Gary Oliva, 52, was arrested after Boulder police received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, local television station KMGH reported.

Oliva, who investigators believe may have been near the Ramsey’s home on the night she was killed in 1996, has been considered one of several suspects in her death over the years.

“We haven’t ruled him in or out in connection with the Ramsey case,” Sarah Huntley, a spokeswoman for the City of Boulder, told KMGH.

Police found a photo of Ramsey during a 2000 arrest of Oliva, who admitted to having an obsession with the young beauty queen, the television station reported.

Following his most recent arrest, Oliva was charged Tuesday with two counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a child and one count of sexual exploitation of a child, KMGH reported.

Olivia allegedly downloaded 22 sexually explicit images of children less than 10 years of age.

The IP address used to download the images was “very similar” to where Oliva was reregistered as a sex offender in October 2015, the television station reported citing court documents.

He was being held on a $10,000 bond, according to KMGH.
