Burke Ramsey was just nine-years-old when his sister JonBenet Ramsay was found murdered in their family’s basement on December 26, 1996.
Burke is the only family member that has never spoken publicly about the case, that has never been solved and has captivated the world for almost 20 years. Until now.
In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil, the now 29 year-old will open up about what he knows about the case.
“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.
