The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey had everyone on the edge of their seats as the story of the pageant winner's murder was discussed further between investigators and those involved in the original case.
The documentary series, which was filmed by American television network CBS, suggested that Burke Ramsey may have been responsible for the murder, even though he was only 9 years old at the time.
The accusations enraged JonBenet's father John and in an exclusive interview, he said he thought that "The CBS show that came out, it was disgraceful. We will sue them."
"Let’s assume that Burke accidentally hit JonBenet, accidentally or intentionally, as this CBS show claims. What would you do as a parent? Would you say, ‘OK, let’s strangle her, let’s write a three-page ransom note and fake the whole thing?’ No, you’d have said, ‘Let’s get her to the hospital immediately’. To think that a parent would do that doesn’t pass the common sense test."
John explained that Burke knew at a young age that people thought he was responsible for the murder and so, as his parents, "we tried to shield Burke from the tabloid headlines."
The Ramsey family came under a lot of scrutiny after the murder and John believes it was only because the public couldn't face the truth, "The police attitude is, ‘You don’t need a lawyer if you’re innocent.’ Well, that’s not true at all. If you’re innocent and you’re dealing with the police, you’d better have a very good lawyer."
As the case has still not been solved, it may still be a while before we find out if these accusations are correct or not.
