Burke Ramsey is finally defending himself against the critics who have theorized that he was the one who murdered his sister, JonBenét, back in 1996.
In the 29-year-old’s first interview, Dr. Phil asked, “There was a book written by the lead investigator in this case that set forth some of his theories. He says one of the reasons that he believes you are the culprit here is that on the day of your sister’s murder, you never asked about her welfare.”

Burke justified his actions.
“Well it was pretty much just, ‘Hey, we can’t find your sister. What do you think happened?’” he explained. “And I was like, ‘Well, she’s probably just hiding somewhere. Did you look around the house?’ Next time I talked to somebody, she was dead.”

When Dr. Phil accused him of being “unbothered” by “all this,” Burke defended his behavior, “Yeah, well, I can tell you I was very emotional with the attorneys. I would just randomly cry out of nowhere. I guess it’s a combination of sitting in there with this weird guy that I never talked to before and asking me all of these personal questions, it’s a combination of that and just kind of…at some point, you have to move on. I’m not saying I moved on then. It might have been kind of the other end. I didn’t really get it. You have to stop crying at some point, I guess.”
