Burke Ramsay Starts Suing

Us Weekly reports that Burke Ramsay has filed a defamation suit over the recent CBS JonBenet Ramsay documentary. Ramsay is suing forensic pathologist Werner Spitz for $150 million for "explicitly and falsely stat[ing] that Burke Ramsay killed his sister, JonBenet Ramsey." The complaint centers not just on the documentary, but on an interview that Spitz gave to CBS Detroit. The filing continues:

"Defendant Spitz has once again interjected himself into a high profile case to make unsupported, false and sensational statements and accusations — this time accusing Burke Ramsey of JonBenét's brutal murder. In the Interview, Defendant Spitz claims Burke, age 9 at the time of his sister's death, bludgeoned her to death. Defendant Spitz made this accusation without ever examining JonBenét's body, without viewing the crime scene, and without consulting with the pathologist who performed the autopsy on JonBenét."

Ramsay is asking that Spitz "remove and retract all defamatory statements" about him.
