Burke Ramsey reportedly just filed a $150 million lawsuit for defamation against Dr. Werner Spitz, one of the leading investigators on the CBS documentary “The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey”
According to court documents obtained by E! News, the lawsuit was filed Friday morning in the third circuit court for Wayne County, Mich.
Although Spitz’s involvement with the case acquired mass attention after the documentary aired, the lawsuit is reportedly aimed at the forensic pathologist’s CBS Detroit radio interview.
The court documents reportedly call Spitz out for being a “publicity seeker” who “once again interjected himself into a high-profile case to make unsupported, false, and sensational statements and accusations.”
The lawsuit comes in the aftermath of Spitz’s stated belief that Burke, “age nine at the time of his sister’s death, bludgeoned her to death. Defendant Spitz made this accusation without ever examining JonBenét’s body, without viewing the crime scene, and without consulting with the pathologist who performed the autopsy on JonBenét.”
Burke’s attorney, L. Lin Wood, told E! that “the accusations by Werner Spitz against this young man are outrageous. Such false accusations have no place in an orderly society. This lawsuit is the first step to holding Spitz accountable for his wrongdoing.”
