JonBenet Ramsey's Brother Finally Speaks Out

JonBenet Ramsey's brother has reportedly revealed shocking new details about her death that are soon to be disclosed to the public.

Sept. 12-14, 29-year-old Burke Ramsey’s exclusive three-part interview with famous American talk show host Dr. Phil will air. They will reportedly shed further light on the mysterious murder, the Daily Mail reports.

JonBenet Ramsey, 6, was murdered almost 20 years ago December of 1996 when her brother was just 9 years old.

She was found strangled, her skull cracked in, the day after Christmas.

For years, many believed Burke’s parents -- or even Burke himself -- may have killed JonBenet.

Authorities cleared the family, however, when evidence that included DNA tests indicated they were not responsible for her death.

Still, Burke has kept a low profile.

The Dr. Phil interview will be the latest development emerging in JonBenet’s still mysterious death.

In June, police arrested former JonBenet killing suspect Gary Howard Oliva, 52, on child pornography charges, the Daily Mail reports.

After JonBenet died, Oliva, a former registered sex offender and a paranoid schizophrenic, reportedly confessed to good friend Michael Vail that he had done something horrible to a child.

“He kept moaning, ‘I hurt a little girl. I hurt a little girl,'” Vail said, In Touch Weekly reports.

“To me, Gary’s call that night was a full confession,” he continued, adding that the way the child was murdered also reminded him of Oliva.

JonBenet had been strangled by a garrote made from a broken paintbrush and rope.

“Gary used to carry paintbrushes like that with him when he was an art student and he studied how to make knots. He had drawings of them, and put them in his collages,” Vail said, adding that Oliva had also once tried to strangle his own mother with a rope.

Later, Oliva would admit he was obsessed with JonBenet.

“I believe she came to me after she was killed and revealed herself to me," he said. "I'd like to see a memorial set up for her. I haven't seen that, anywhere."
