Handwriting experts will square off in Virginia federal court over allegations that one stole the other’s analysis of the JonBenet Ramsey ransom note.
As reported in the Virginia Pilot:
Cina L. Wong, a forensic document examiner with an office on Granby Street, is seeking to stop author and handwriting expert Michelle Dresbold from holding up the ransom note analysis as her own. Wong also wants unspecified monetary damages.
In the suit, filed Monday, Wong submitted hundreds of pages of her analysis of the ransom note and says it is nearly identical to what Dresbold published in her book, “Sex, Lies, and Handwriting.” Wong concluded that JonBenet’s mother wrote the note.
The lawsuit also seeks to stop Dresbold from making those claims over the public airwaves. According to Michelle Dresbold’s website, she has appeared on numerous television programs.
