Andrew Novick told Radar he wants to unload the pink three-wheeler that he’s owned for 22 years at a negotiable price of $100,000 since it is currently just sitting the garage at his Denver home collecting dust.
“Once I made the movie it kinda made the tricycle famous, and, I think, if I’m going to sell it, now would be the time,” said the eccentric 49-year-old man who displays his collection of pop culture memorabilia on his website www.isaveeverything.com. “I kind of have gotten my use from it so I think someone else can take it on its next journey,” he added.
Novick was living in Boulder, Colo., in 1996 when innocent 6-year-old Ramsey was found sexually abused and strangled inside her parent’s swanky home on Christmas.
Weeks later after learning the Ramsey family had moved out of the tragic house, Novick discovered the tricycle while rummaging through a pile of discarded family items left in an alley behind the home.
Novick, who along with millions in America became obsessed with the murder, decided to produce a documentary about the mystery simply called JonBenét’s Tricycle that featured in film festivals across the United States.
“Collecting the tricycle spawned ideas, spawned creativity – and it keeps the story alive,” Novick explained to Radar. “It’s a tragic story where a child died and never really got justice. So, part of the movie is showing how we deal with this kind of tragedy and how keeping the story going and maybe they will arrest somebody.”
