Burke Ramsey, the surviving older brother of JonBenet Ramsey, is suing CBS and others for $US750 million ($A1.0 billion).
Hit crime special The Case Of: JonBenet Ramsey, concluded that he killed his sister, as part of a cover-up in which his parents allegedly protected their only surviving child.
The 29-year-old filed a lawsuit in Michigan this week, seeking $US250 million in compensatory damages and $500 million in punitive damages for “permanent damage to his reputation” as a result of the “false accusation that he killed his sister.”
Earlier this year, Burke was asked by Dr Phil McGraw: “Did you do anything to harm your sister JonBenet?” Dr Phil asked, point blank.
“No,” he responded.
“Did you murder your sister JonBenet?” asked McGraw.
“No,” he answered.
“I kinda always thought it was a paedophile who saw her in one of the pageants and snuck in [to our house], who knows,” he said.
The Case Of: JonBenet Ramsey drew a bumper audience when it screened in Australia on Nine.
