Burke Ramsey’s attorney is all fired up!
The 29-year-old brother of JonBenét Ramsey is suing CBS for defamation after the investigators in the docu-series “The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey” blamed him for the 6-year-old girl’s death.
In the series, investigators reexamined all the evidence from the case and concluded that Burke Ramsey likely lashed out at his sister that night in 1996 and accidentally killed her with a flashlight; he was 9 years old at the time. The investigators also believe that the children’s parents, Patsy and John Ramsey, covered up the murder.
In the days following the end of the docu-series, Burke Ramsey hired attorney L. Lin Wood, who spoke about the case and the allegations to TMZ.
“Nobody was so, excuse my language, asinine to accuse this child, Burke Ramsey. Except CBS,” he said. “No one has had the foolishness in the mainstream media or even the tabloid media to accuse this young man of the murder of his sister in until CBS decided to do so during sweeps week to try to get ratings and to try to profit off of this child.”
Wood slammed the investigators on the case — retired FBI supervisory special agent and profiler Jim Clemente; former chief investigator for the District Attorney of Boulder, Colo., James Kolar; forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee; forensic pathologist Dr. Werner Spitz; retired FBI supervisory special agent and forensic linguistic profiler James Fitzgerald; retired FBI supervisory special agent and statement analyst Stan Burke; and former New Scotland Yard criminal behavior analyst Laura Richards — for their conclusion.
“These are phony experts and this whole CBS fraudulent story is premised on the idea that Burke Ramsey killed her with a blow to the head. It is outrageous, it is unlawful, it’s so bad, this was almost immoral,” Wood said.
He explained that the blow to the head was delivered perimortem.
“CBS is going to be held accountable in a court of law,” Wood added.
Burke Ramsey spoke about the case for the first time in 20 years in a three-part “Dr. Phil” series.
During the interview, Dr. Phil addressed the theory that Burke was the one who killed his sister.
“There still are people that believe that you killed you sister. What do you say about that?” Dr. Phil asked.
“Look at the evidence, or lack thereof,” Burke responded.
