The older brother of JonBenet Ramsey says the media made his family’s life “crazy” after his 6-year-old sister’s death 20 years ago.
Burke Ramsey was 9 when his 6-year-old sister JonBenet was found dead in the basement of the family’s Boulder, Colorado, home on Dec. 26, 1996. Public suspicion immediately focused on the girl’s parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, and Burke.
In 2008, the three were officially cleared by prosecutors who said that DNA found on the girl’s underwear didn’t match anyone in the family.
He added: “Seeing that as a little kid is just kind of a chaotic nightmare, so I was pretty skeptical of any sort of media, it just made me a very private person. As to what I’m doing now it’s the 20th anniversary and apparently still a lot of tension around it, I guess I kind of wanted to make it about remembering her and not just another news story.”
