JonBenet's Brother Files Defamation Suit Against Pathologist

By COREY WILLIAMS, ASSOCIATED PRESS DETROIT Oct 6, 2016, 9:16 PM ET

The older brother of JonBenet Ramsey filed a defamation lawsuit Thursday against a Michigan forensic pathologist who told a Detroit-area media outlet that Burke Ramsey killed his 6-year-old sister.

The complaint alleges that Dr. Werner Spitz said in a Sept. 19 interview that 9-year-old Burke bludgeoned JonBenet to death in 1996.

"Spitz made this accusation without ever examining JonBenet's body, without viewing the crime scene, and without consulting with the pathologist who performed the autopsy on JonBenet," the complaint filed in Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit says.

JonBenet was found dead in the basement of the family's Boulder, Colorado, home. In 2008, her parents and brother were cleared by prosecutors who said DNA on the girl's underwear didn't match anyone in the family.
