JonBenet Ramsey’s death has been a mystery for 20 years, but a CBS speical that aired in September may have cleared up the mystery?
According to JonBenet Ramsey’s older brother, Burke Ramsey, CBS ruined his reputation after the network aired a television series called “The Case of JonBenet Ramsey,” in September that concluded that he killed his sister.
Burke has filed a lawsuit in Michigan claiming that CBS, its production company and the experts interviewed in the series on the unsolved murder conspired to defame him for publicity and profit. Burke had also previously filed a lawsuit against a forensic pathologist featured on the show who said he bludgeoned his sister to death. This pathologist is also named in the latest lawsuit.
JonBenet Ramsey was 6 years old when she died and was found dead in the family’s basement in Boulder, Colorado, the day after Christmas in 1996.
The case still remains open despite a lot of evidence studied and collected over the years.
CBS spokesman Dustin Smith declined to comment on the lawsuit.
The new lawsuit states, “The accusation that Burke Ramsey killed his sister was based on a compilation of lies, half-truths, manufactured information, and the intentional omission and avoidance of truthful information about the murder of JonBenét Ramsey.”
