The older brother of JonBenet Ramsey is suing CBS and others for $750 million, saying his reputation was ruined after a television series that concluded he killed his 6-year-old sister two decades ago.
In the lawsuit filed Wednesday, Burke Ramsey claims that the network, its production company and the experts interviewed in the series on the unsolved murder conspired to defame him for publicity and profit. The series, called “The Case of JonBenet Ramsey,” aired in September ahead of the 20th anniversary of JonBenet’s death.
CBS spokesman Dustin Smith declined to comment on the lawsuit, which is the second Burke Ramsey has filed over the television series.
After the series aired, viewers felt uneasy about just how strange Burke Ramsey appeared. Throughout the interview, Burke smiled oddly and was rather theatrical with his answers. Later, Dr. Phil stated that these actions could simply be Burke’s way of dealing with awkward and stressful situations. Clearly, Burke did not like the portrayal of himself in the series.
The JonBenet Ramsey case still remains unsolved and open. There are many theories as to how JonBenet died the day after Christmas, 1996. Many theories leading back family members as suspects.
