    After 20 years, JonBenet's brother to break silence

    (NEWSER) – The Dr. Phil Show says "never-before-heard details" about the JonBenet Ramsey murder will be aired this fall when her brother speaks to the press for the first time.

    Burke Ramsey, who was 9 years old when his younger sister was found beaten and strangled to death in their Boulder, Colo., home on Dec. 26, 1996, spoke to the show for a three-part series that will air Sept. 12, 13, and 19, the Daily Camera reports.

    The 29-year-old will reveal "what he knows about his sister's mysterious murder," the show says on its website.

    Expect more such shows as the anniversary nears. The Investigation Discovery network, for example, plans a three-part series on the case that also begins on Sept. 12, reports Variety.

    That series promises to "re-explore every angle," but a network release acknowledges that "we may never definitively know the answer" to the question of what happened to JonBenet. People notes that the murder, which remains one of America's most famous unsolved killings, put Burke and his parents in the public eye.

    No charges were ever filed, though it emerged in 2013 that a grand jury voted in 1999 to indict parents John and Patsy Ramsey for "child abuse resulting in death," but the DA refused to sign the indictment.

    DNA evidence, however, cleared all three family members in 2008.

    (One longtime suspect recently was busted on child porn charges, and former Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner has admitted big mistakes were made in the early days of the investigation.)

    It has been nearly 20 years since 6-year-old JonBenét Ramsey was found dead in her family's Colorado home.

    The killing, one of the highest profile cases in recent memory, remains unsolved. But the 1996 killing has become cemented in national headlines and in the minds of many.

    On Monday, it was announced that Burke Ramsey, the older brother of the slain beauty pageant winner, will speak publicly for the first time in an upcoming three-part series of Dr. Phil beginning Sept. 12.

    Here are five things to know about the unsolved case that continues to grip the nation.

    1. JonBenét and Her Family Were the Only People Known to Be Home at the Time of Her Death

    On the day after Christmas in 1996, John Ramsey discovered his only daughter dead, with duct tape over her mouth and a cord twisted around her neck in the basement of the family's Tudor mansion in Boulder, Colorado.

    Although JonBenét's half-brother John, 20, had spent Christmas day with the family, the only people known to have been in the home that night are the little girl, Burke, then 9, and JonBenét's parents, Patsy and John.

    Authorities later determined that JonBenét had been sexually assaulted.

    2. Parents and Brother Were Formally Cleared of Any Involvement

    In 2008, John, Patsy and Burke were formally cleared of any involvement in the child's death.

    Then-District Attorney Mary Lacy wrote a letter to John, saying that DNA evidence cleared the trio. She apologized to the family for the scrutiny the family lived under as a result of the case.

    The news came two years after Patsy died of ovarian cancer.

    John remarried in 2011.

    3. John Mark Karr Falsely Confessed to JonBenét's Murder

    In August 2006, former schoolteacher John Mark Karr was arrested as a suspect in the 6-year-old's death.

    "I was with JonBenét when she died," he said at a press conference in Bangkok at the time. "Her death was an accident."

    Karr asserted that he committed the crime, but his former wife told reporters then that she was with Karr in Alabama the entire Christmas season in 1996.

    Questions arose about the man's story. The case against Karr was eventually dropped after DNA failed to connect him to the crime.

    4. Former Police Chief Said Case Was Mishandled

    During a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" session, former Boulder, Colorado, police chief Mark Beckner, said that he had regrets about the unsolved case.

    "It was the Christmas holiday and we were short staffed, we faced a situation, as I said earlier, that no one in the country had ever seen before or since, and there was confusion at the scene as people were arriving before we had enough personnel on the scene," Beckner wrote online, according to the Washington Post.

    He reportedly said in the AMA session that police "should have done a much better job of controlling the crime scene," the Post reported. He added that investigators should have gotten separate statements from John and Patsy.

    5. A Private Investigator in the Case Wants a Second Look

    Ollie Gray was initially hired by John and Patsy in the 1996 case. Gray continues to work on the mystery and told Today in May that the local police agency was "inexperienced" in dealing with a case of its seriousness.

    "There are probably three or four people that should have been investigated earlier and still need to be investigated," he said.

    Gray pointed to a man named Michael Helgoth – who committed suicide in 1997 – as a possible suspect.

    Gray said police had their eyes on Helgoth early in the investigation but set their sights elsewhere when he killed himself. Gray also said he believes a taped confession by Helgoth may be in the possession of the man's close family.

    "He was basically a hell-raiser," Gray said of Helgoth.

    I find this case fascinating. So many loose ends and bungled police work. I predict lots of hype and speculation but no closure, especially with mom dead.

    Wasn't there a ransom note found in the house? I believe I remember thinking that should have been the key piece of evidence.

    (Hollywood, CA – August 1, 2016) — Television’s #1-rated daytime talk show, DR. PHIL, returns for its 15th season with an exclusive interview revealing shocking, never-before-heard details about one of America’s most talked about cold cases.

    In December 1996, 6-year-old child pageant star JonBenet Ramsey was found dead in the basement of her family’s Colorado home. Speaking out publicly for the first time, JonBenet’s 29-year-old brother, Burke, reveals what he knows about his sister’s mysterious murder in a ripped-from-the-headlines exclusive interview with Dr. Phil. After 20 years, it’s finally time for answers.

    The three-part season premiere airs Monday, September 12th; Tuesday September 13th; and Monday September 19th.
