“I’ve been totally open and honest with you from the beginning, and you’ve treated me like some nitwit,” he said.
Ganesh Ramsaran said he told the Chenango County Sheriff’s Office when he was first asked regarding his wife’s disappearance that he shared information about the affair with the running partner, a married woman who also resides in Chenango County.
A woman who had been assisting him in what he says was the search for his wife, Cynthia Caron, said last week that Ganesh Ramsaran went to the Norwich YMCA on the day his wife vanished, and later got a ride home from his female running companion. Caron, who is involved in a New Hamphire group that is registered as a charity and aids the family of missing people, claimed Ramsaran’s sexual involvement with the woman was a one-time fling that never bloomed into an affair.
Last April, Ganesh Ramsaran, a marathon enthusiast, posted a note on a Facebook running club page in which he described the woman he now admits having a tryst with as his “Protege/Prodigy in running & working out.”
In his interview with The Daily Star last week, Ganesh Ramsaran said he has been fully cooperative with police investigators from the outset.
“They (sheriff’s department and state police investigators) were in my home for four freaking days, man, with search warrants,” he said Feb. 21. “I had allowed them to come to my home even before that. They didn’t need warrants.”
Ganesh Ramsaran also characterized himself as being always truthful.
“It serves no purpose to ever lie,” he said. “I teach the kids: No matter what, tell the truth.”
He also said then there had been “a sighting of Jennifer” last week, but declined to provide details of precisely where or when she was supposedly spotted. He said in that interview he was still optimistic she would be found alive.
On Dec. 14, three days after she vanished, he voiced pessimism over her fate. “All I want is for Jen to come walking through our front door safe and sound and giving us all hugs, but I have lost all faith that will be the case,” he wrote on Facebook that day.
