JonBenet Ramsey’s Brother Gives First Ever Interview

It was the murder that rocked the world. Six-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey found bludgeoned to death in her family's basement in 1996.

It's hard to believe it's been 20 years since the heartbreaking discovery and still no one knows exactly who was responsible for the little girl's tragic death.

Her brother, Burke Ramsey is speaking out for the first time. Burke was only nine when his sister was murdered.

His life changed for ever that day. The now 29-year-old not only had to contend with losing his sister, but intense public scrutiny that he and his family were involved.

The family have long maintained their innocence and in 2008 were cleared of having any involvement after DNA testing eliminated them from enquiries.

Sadly, Jonbenet's mother Patsy Ramsey died of cancer two years before her name was cleared.

In an interview with Dr Phil that's set to air next week, he asks Burke: 'Has it ever occurred to you that your parents actually thought you did this and didn't ask you because they didn't want to know?'

The 29-year-old calmly responds, 'I know people think I did it; that my parents did it. I know that we were suspects.'
