A man suspected of murdering beauty pageant queen JonBenet Ramsey in 1996 has been arrested for child pornography.

Boulder, Colorado police took Gary Howard Oliva, 52, into custody on Friday for allegedly uploading 20 graphic photos of children to his Google email address, the Daily Camera reported.

Investigators revealed some of the photos are of a girl between the ages of 4 and 7 years old.

Oliva was a suspect in the 6-year-old's killing.

According to 48 Hours Investigates, Oliva, who was arrested previously for assaulting a 7-year-old girl, is a registered sex offender and was suspected of being near the Ramsey home the night of her murder.

Unfortunately, investigators were unable to match the DNA under the 6-year-old's fingernails to anyone in the FBI database. (Oliva is no longer considered a suspect.)

Ramsey was found dead in her basement on December 26, 1996. She was severely beaten and strangled when her body was discovered. 

John Mark Karr was also considered a prime suspect when he falsely confessed to the killing.

Oliva will appear in court on July 11 and will be held on a $10,000 bond.
