If you've seen any TV lately, you know that the unsolved murder of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey is being revisited 20 years later.

To this day, a suspect has not been found.

As experts try to put the pieces of the puzzle together with new technology, JonBenet's older brother, Burke Ramsey, agreed to a sit-down with Dr. Phil.

Burke was just nine years old himself at the time of his sister's death, but as the years go by, many experts believe he did it.

“There still are people that believe that you killed your sister. What do you say about that?” Dr. Phil asked Burke.

“Look at the evidence or the lack thereof," Burke replied.

Well, Dr. Phil, explained, it's not that easy.

The talk show host added:

"Part of their rationale, these people, say you are the only one that your parents would go to the lengths they went to to cover up everything that happened."

"When they say 'covered up,' they’re talking about fabricating this ransom note, if she was strangled, then causing the head injury."

"Doing all of this cover-up was all done to protect you because they didn’t want to lose two children. That’s their theory.”

Burke wasn't sure what to say.

“I don’t know what to say to that because I know that’s not what happened," he responded.

"There’s been a few people that said that’s not even physically possible for a 9-year-old to do that."

Dr. Phil asked Burke if he talks to JonBenet up in heaven.

Burke said he does, as well as with his grandmother and mother, who died of ovarian cancer in 2006.

“Like there’s some important thing I was doing, [I’d] be like, ‘Hey, thanks for looking out for me’ or ‘I hope you’re looking out for me,’" he said.

"Or you know, ‘Hope you’re having fun up there because I’m taking some test,' or like, ‘I wish I was up there right now.’"

Burke appears uneasy and shifty throughout the three-part interview, which he agreed to do in order to convince people that neither he nor his parents killed JonBenet.

"I know people think I did it; that my parents did it. I know that we were suspects," he said.

"I want to honor her memory by doing this interview. I don't want anyone to forget."

“Her death was an accident. I was with her when she died. But I was not the person who caused it!" Karr claimed in an interview for an Investigation Discovery documentary.

“How she was found, that’s not how she died," he said, stressing that he did not kill her, but knows exactly what happened.

"Where she was found in that basement is not where she died."

Karr also declared that he would protect those involved, and take his secrets to teh grave.

"I’m going to protect every person that needs to be protected,” he said.

“Maybe God up in Heaven will forgive me for some of the things that I did to help other people!”
