(Newser) – The father of slain pre-teen beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey is dating the mother of missing Aruba tourist Natalee Holloway. Fox News broke the romance today, offering its detail-hungry viewers only that the bereaved pair met at a fundraiser and have "been spotted openly holding hands and kissing" in Alabama.

John Ramsey denies the gossip, explaining that he and Beth Holloway Twitty are merely friends bonded by tragedy. Ramsey's wife died last year, and Twitty is freshly divorced. Police remain stumped by each of their unrelated cases; no arrest has ever been made in the sensational JonBenet murder, and a somewhat attenuated search goes on for Natalee in Aruba.
