CNN is the latest channel to host a special about JonBenet Ramsey 20 years after she was killed. ‘The Murder of JonBenet Ramsey’ shed some light on how her dad John Ramsey feels about the accusations against Burke Ramsey. We have all the details, right here.
Most families are feeling full of cheer on Dec. 26, but the day after Christmas for the Ramseys will mark the 20 year anniversary of the death of their daughter JonBenet Ramsey. To take a look back at the still-mysterious murder, CNN aired a special called The Murder of JonBenet, where they talked to her father John Ramsey, 73.
John took the opportunity to defend his son Burke Ramsey, 29, who many believed to be the killer. People question the way Burke talked in an interview with Dr. Phil, saying that his odd smiling expression was a sign of guilt. “Oh come on,” John said. “Burke is a wonderful young man, I’m very proud of him.” John also revealed that he still wants to solve the case, because it’s the only way people will stop blaming his deceased wife Patsy and Burke.
John also reminisced about his final day with JonBenet: Christmas 1996. JonBenet had been given a bike as a present. “She wasn’t great at it but we went out in the back and she was able to get going,” said John. “I remember that. She wanted to keep riding her bike and I said ‘no we’ve got to go.'” JonBenet pleased “Daddy please one more time lets do one more time.” “I said we’ll do it later. Of course there was no later.” So sad!
Many other news outlets and channels have done specials over the course of 2016 as interest in the case reached a record high. With new evidence and new technology, they often seemed to point the finger more clearly at JonBenet’s brother Burke, though he still maintains that he’s innocent. We may never know what really happened that night.
