Who is Benet Ramsey, the girl Lady GaGa mentions in her song “Dance in the Dark”?

Sample lyrics from the song:

“Work your blonde
Benet Ramsey will haunt like Liberace.
Find your freedom in the music,
find your Jesus,
find your Cupid…”

Can’t tell if it says “JonBenet Ramsey,” “Benet Ramsey” or simply “a Ramsey.” I looked online, it’s pretty scattered between the three.

The lyrics point to a darker side since it says “haunt.” Just seems odd to me.
It refers to JonBenét Ramsey. GaGa also refers to Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Sylvia Plath and Princess Diana in that song. All 5 girls were famous and fell to tragedy. They also had intense media coverage following their deaths. The song is great. Her new album is amazing!
