From her blond locks to picture-perfect smile, JonBenét grabbed the attention of millions of Americans back when she was a young girl.
While many will remember the young girl for her perfect hair and makeup, her father told ABC News the opposite. "I see her, you know, in shorts and t-shirt and hair kind of scruffy and just kind of a kid," John Ramsey shared.
Like mother, like daughter? JonBenét's mom Patsy Ramsey was once crowned Miss West Virginia in 1977.
While Americans may remember JonBenét as a beauty pageant contestant, her dad often described her more as a tomboy.
