A Colorado prosecutor wants more money to investigate the JonBenet Ramsey murder case.

The Boulder Daily Camera reports that District Attorney Mary Lacey has asked county commissioners for $40,000 to hire another investigator.

That report comes as the tenth anniversary of the little girl's murder approaches. The 1996 case appeared to blow wide open in August with the arrest in Thailand of John Mark Karr, a sometime teacher obsessed with the little girl's slaying.

Karr made bizarre, detailed confessions but was later freed because of a lack of hard evidence.

JonBenet's father, John Ramsey, has said in recent interviews he still believes the case will be solved.
