“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 Ramsey.
“I know people think I did it; that my parents did it. I know that we were suspects,” he replies.
“I remember my mum searching my room that night saying, 'Where's my baby? Where's my baby?' Burke recalls of the night JonBenet went missing.
“I want to honor her memory by doing this interview. I don't want anyone to forget,” he adds.
Parents John and Patsy remained suspects in their daughter's death until 2008, when police finally cleared their names. Sadly, Patsy had already been dead for two years after her battle with cancer.
Burke, also a suspect, was exonerated by DNA evidence in May of 1999.
In 2006, a 41-year-old schoolteacher named John Mark Karr confessed to killing JonBenet, but was never charged as his DNA wasn’t a match.
Burke’s interview with Dr. Phil will air on September 12, 13 and 14.
