Jon Benet Ramsey’s brother files $150M defamation lawsuit in Detroit (updated)

March 08, 2017

A new lawsuit involving the murder of Jon Benet Ramsey has made its way to Detroit.

It’s still an unsolved mystery that has captivated the country for years. Now the brother of Jon Benet is suing a forensic expert and CBS over a recent documentary – and the case is being heard right here in Detroit.

Burke Ramsey, 30, is suing local yet world-renowned forensic pathologist Werner Spitz, accusing him of defamation in a $150 million dollar lawsuit.

Ramsey’s attorney Lin Wood noted his client has never been charged and was cleared by a grand jury, and won prior defamation lawsuits against tabloids that accused Burke of killing his sister.
