JonBenet Ramsey’s Brother Talks Sister’s Death On ‘Dr. Phil’

The older brother of JonBenet Ramsey says the media made his family’s life “crazy” after his 6-year-old sister’s death 20 years ago.

Burke Ramsey was 9 when his 6-year-old sister JonBenet was found dead in the basement of the family’s Boulder, Colorado, home on Dec. 26, 1996. Public suspicion immediately focused on the girl’s parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, and Burke.

In 2008, the three were officially cleared by prosecutors who said that DNA found on the girl’s underwear didn’t match anyone in the family.

Burke Ramsey, who’s now 29, says in an interview on “Dr. Phil” broadcast Monday that the crush of attention was “a chaotic nightmare” and turned him into “a very private person.”

More of Ramsey’s interview is expected to air Tuesday and Wednesday.
