JonBenet Ramsey: Brother of murdered pageant star sues CBS


THE brother of killed beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey is reportedly suing TV station CBS for £600million.

JonBenet Ramsey was found dead in the basement of her family home in Boulder, Colorado, on Boxing Day 1996. The series, called The Case of JonBenét Ramsey, aired in September ahead of the 20th anniversary of JonBenét's death. She was found strangled with her wrists tied above her head and a garrote embedded in her neck.

And even though the network "stands by its broadcast", Burke is still taking CBS to court for a second defamation lawsuit! He and parents John and Patsy were all cleared by prosecutors in 2008 based on DNA evidence. As evidence, they point to a statement from the former Boulder Police Department chief, in which he said that Burke was not involved in the killing.

Burke is seeking $750m in compensatory and punitive damage, LawNewz reported.

"CBS perpetrated a fraud upon the public - instead of being a documentary based on a new investigation by a so-called team of experts, "The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey" was a fictional crime show", the legal documents claim while attacking the bonafides of the investigators listed in the series.

They are accused of running a scheme to fraudulently access public works funding in the Santa Cruz province from 2003 to 2015. Carlos Saúl Menem (1989-1999) faced several allegations and was famously given a red Ferrari as a "present" while in office.

Meanwhile, Burke Ramsey is also separately suing one of those experts-forensic pathologist Dr. Werner Spitz-for $150 million for his part in the show.

Investigators said they were looking at new DNA testing technology that they hoped would further the investigation.

He is also named in the latest lawsuit, which was filed in MI, where Mr Ramsey lives.

He accused CBS of conducting a "sham reinvestigation" of the murder, calling the accusation against him "a compilation of lies, half-truths, manufactured information, and the intentional omission and avoidance of truthful information about the murder of JonBenet Ramsey".
