Tragedy has brought the father of slain child beauty queen Jon Benet Ramsey and the mother of missing teen Natalee Holloway together for what they insist is friendship - but looks like a lot more.John Ramsey, 63, and Beth Holloway Twitty, 46, met at a Colorado fund-raiser in December and have became "friends," said Ramsey's lawyer Lin Wood."They share common interests and concerns related to their children, particularly with respect to the actions of law enforcement and the media in response to those tragic losses," Wood said.
- where Twitty lives - and at a show at a nearby art museum.
They've also been seen at various restaurants, sparking rumors that a romance was in bloom.
Ramsey, who now lives in Michigan, tried to squelch the speculation yesterday.
"The tabloid rumors are totally exaggerated," he told a Colorado TV station.
"I have great respect for Beth and how she's handled her terrible situation. A daughter from Ramsey's first marriage, which ended in divorce, died in a 1992 car crash at the age of 22.
We've developed a friendship of respect and admiration." Twitty, who has yet to weigh in on how she views the relationship, has been married twice. His second wife, Patsy, died last June of ovarian cancer at 49. Holloway, 18, disappeared in Aruba in May 2005 during a senior class trip.
Their daughter, Jon Benet, was 6 years old when she was found beaten and strangled in the basement of her family's Boulder, Colo., home on Dec. Her body has never been found and no one has been charged in the case.
In a match seemingly made in tabloid heaven, the father of murdered child beauty queen Jon Benet Ramsey and the mother of missing-in-Aruba teen Natalee Holloway are dating, FOX News has confirmed.
John Ramsey, 63, and Beth Holloway Twitty, 46, have been romantically involved since January 2007, though the two met at a fundraiser last year.
