EXCLUSIVE: JonBenet Ramsey – Brother Burke Ramsey Accused of Attempting to Silence Those who Believe He Murdered His Sister
The Dirty can exclusively reveal the forensic expert sued by JonBenet Ramsey’s brother Burke Ramsey is accusing him of attempting to use the legal system to silence anyone who reaches the conclusion he is the real murderer. Burke filed a $150 million defamation lawsuit against forensic expert Dr. Werner Spitz over his theory he killed his sister 20 years ago.
The suit accused the forensic expert of defaming him by stating in an interview, “It’s the boy who did it, whether he was jealous, or mentally unfit or something … I don’t know of the why, I’m not a psychiatrist, but what I am sure about is what I know about him, that is what happened here.”
He sued Spitz demanding $150 million in damages and a public retraction.
Now, Spitz has filed new docs accusing Burke Ramsey of using the legal system to silence anyone and everyone who comes to the conclusion he murdered his sister. He says the JonBenet Ramsey case has remained one of the most famous unsolved murders in the past two decades and everyone from law enforcement to internet theorists have offered numerous hypotheses about who killed her … pointing out many believed it was a member of JonBenet’s family.
Spitz argues any person who listened to his interview would understand his opinion is just that … another opinion to add to the hundreds of others … and there’s no way his statements could be interpreted as fact.
