Twenty years ago, 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey was murdered and found in a spare room of her home in Colorado. Her brother, Burke Ramsey, was an initial suspect. He will tell all in an upcoming US miniseries of “Dr. Phil.”

The three-part series will begin in the US on Sep. 12, followed by succeeding episodes on Sep. 13 and 19. Showings for other areas have not been announced at this time.

JonBenet was last seen alive on Dec. 24, 1996. The day after, her lifeless body was found in the basement of her Colorado home. It was established that she died from strangulation.

The police suspected her parents, John and Patsy, of the murder, as well as her older brother, Burke. The Ramsey family was exonerated by Boulder District Attorney Mary Lacy. Their case was built on DNA evidence found on JonBenet’s clothing, which belonged to an unknown man.

Burke, who was around 9 years old at the time of the murder, is speaking out publicly for the first time. A news release of the “Dr. Phil” miniseries claims that Burke will “reveal what he knows about his sister’s mysterious murder in in a ripped-from-the-headlines exclusive interview with Dr. Phil.”

The Ramsey family were the only known people who were home at the time of JonBenet’s death. Moreover, it was her father John who found her dead with duct tape over her mouth a cord twister around her neck.

Former Boulder, Colorado, police officer Mark Beckner had admitted that the crime scene was not handled correctly. He said there was a shortage of staff during the initial stages of the case.

Now, even 20 years after the incident, JonBenet’s murder is still a mystery. But perhaps things will become clearer to the public after hearing what Burke has to say. After all, the announcement of the show boasted that “it’s finally time for answers.”
