A new flurry of speculation about the unsolved death of JonBenet Ramsey landed the case on five magazine covers in October, enough to capture the Cover Story lead for the month. The pre-adolescent beauty queen, found slain in her home last Christmas, garnered 6.5 points. The case earned a triple play on the National Enquirer, and one-time appearances on People and Star, as suspicions continued to linger around her parents' involvement.

Close behind was talk show star Rosie O'Donnell, who racked up 6 points on the covers of Us and Redbook for the No. 2 spot. Third place was owned by John F. Kennedy Jr., who was seen twice on the Star's cover with gossip about his marriage, as well as once on Life, for 5 points.

Fourth place saw a tie between Cameron Diaz and John Denver-the country singer killed last month in a plane crash-both with 4.5 points. Sixth place also was a tie, between Vanessa L. Williams and Nicole Kidman scoring 4 points apiece. Eighth place belonged to legendary crooner Frank Sinatra, with 3.5 points.

A bevy of celebrities collected 3 points, to tie for ninth place, including Yasmine Bleeth, George Clooney, Kevin Costner, Cindy Crawford, John Cusack, Jodie Foster, Liam Gallagher, Mel Gibson, Julia Roberts, Chris Rock, Kevin Spacey and Mark Wahlberg.
