JonBenét Ramsey’s Brother Is Suing CBS
A new TV documentary reexamines the tragic death of the then-six-year-old girl in 1996 and has prompted a new lawsuit.
Earlier this week, CBS aired the conclusion of their exposé on the death of JonBenét Ramsey, effectively saying that her older brother Burke Ramsey struck her over the head with a large flashlight. Now Burke is taking legal action against the television network, filing a defamation lawsuit for their accusations.
“You damn betcha I’m gonna sue CBS, the phony experts and everyone else that put this thing together,” Burke’s lawyer L. Lin Wood told TMZ.
The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey’s findings differ larger from autopsy findings, which asserted that the young girl died from “asphyxia strangulation” as a result of head trauma. The show also concluded that JonBenét’s parents John and Patsy Ramsey staged a break-in to protect their son.
But Burke has his own theories as to who killed his younger sister. In a three-part interview with “Dr. Phil,” the 29-year-old said the killer was “probably some pedophile in the pageant crowd,” via Yahoo News.
CBS has already issued a statement in response to the defamation lawsuit, telling TMZ the network: “stands by the broadcast and will do so in court.”
