The brother of murder victim JonBenét Ramsey is suing CBS for $750 million dollars for saying he was likely the one that killed his sister.
Deadline writes that Burke Ramsey, who was 10 when his 6-year-old beauty queen sister was found dead in the family’s Boulder, CO, home at Christmastime in 1996.
The lawsuit claims CBS and its team of experts planned to conduct a “sham reinvestigation” of JonBenet’s death with “the preconceived the story line” that Ramsey killed the girl and conspired with his parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, to cover it up.
“The accusation that Burke Ramsey killed his sister was based on a compilation of lies, half-truths, manufactured information, and the intentional omission and avoidance of truthful information about the murder of JonBenét Ramsey,” the lawsuit says.
When contacted by Deadline, CBS had no comment on the suit, which was filed yesterday in a Michigan court.
