JonBenet Ramsey’s brother sues CBS for $750M over docu-series about her death

JonBenet Ramsey’s older brother, Burke Ramsey, has filed a $750 million defamation lawsuit against CBS over its docu-series, “The Case: of JonBenet Ramsey. Burke Ramsey claims that since the airing of the series, he has been “exposed to public hatred, contempt and ridicule,” Reuters reports.

JonBenet’s body was found in the basement of her parents’ Boulder, Colorado, home on Dec. 26, 1996. Her murder has never been solved.

At the end of the CBS series, a panel of experts issued an opinion that Burke Ramsey, who was 9 at the time of the killing, hit JonBenet in the head with a heavy object and parents John and Patsy Ramsey then staged the scene to make it appear that someone had broken into the family home.
