Burke Ramsey Speaks on JonBenet Ramsey Murder

by at .

The JonBenet Ramsey murder case may be 20 years old.

But it refuses to go away.

In fact, it will be front and center in a couple of different ways over the next few months.

As previously announced, CBS will air a miniseries that explores the mysterious disappearance of this child beauty queen.

But truly significant buzz surrounding the JonBenet Ramsey case centers on the victim's brother, Burke Ramsey.

He's the only member of his immediate family who has never spoken to the press, but he will touch on the sad topic of his sister's death in an interview with Dr. Phil on September 12.

For those unaware of these details, Ramsey was killed in December of 1996.

But the killer was never found and Ramsey's parents were long believed to have been the culprits.

Many people out there still suspects JonBenet's parents of committing this heinous crime, while also pointing a finger at Burke.

He's now 29 years old and he tells Dr. Phil that he's aware those allegations persist.

"I remember my mom searching my room that night saying, 'Where's my baby? Where's my baby?'" Burke tells the talk show host in the three-part season premiere.

We've posted the first trailer for it below.

"Has it ever occurred to you that your parents actually thought you did this and didn't ask you because they didn't want to know?" Dr. Phil asks Burke in the sit-down.

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

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

Since the young beauty queen’s death, JonBenet's mother passed away from ovarian cancer and her father has remarried.

Despite moving forward with their lives as best they can, the family members haven't forgotten the past.

"I remember the viewing," Burke says. "The casket was small. Her eyes were closed."

JonBenet was discovered beaten and strangled in her Colorado home's basement on December 26, 1996.

There have been more than 140 suspects and more than 1,400 pieces of evidence reviewed. No one was ever arrested for the crime.

Back in 1996, John and Patsy Ramsey made the initial call to police, saying they found a note demanding ransom for their daughter of $118,000.

John later came across his daughter's body hours after police completed a search of the residence.

In 2008, they were officially cleared of any wrongdoing.

The three-part Dr. Phil season premiere begins Monday, September 12 and continues Tuesday, September 13 and Monday, September 19 on CBS.
