Dr. Phil McGraw Previews Burke Ramsey Interview

"For the first time in 20 years, we are going to hear from the other person that we know was in the house the night that child was tragically murdered.”


Dr. Phil McGraw with Burke Ramsey

Dr. Phil McGraw hopes to help solve the 20 year-old murder of JonBenet Ramsey.

Burke Ramsey — brother of the slain pageant princess — will give his first interview ever on the season 15 premiere of DR. PHIL.

“The JonBenet Ramsey case is the biggest unsolved mystery of our generation — probably since the Lindberg case.,” McGraw tells TheTVPage.com.

“The missing link is Burke Ramsey because in 20 years, he has never spoken publicly. He was interrogated threes times: once when he was 9 and twice when he was 12. But those interrogation tapes disappeared.”

“We have Burke Ramsey and we have the three interrogation tapes,” McGraw reveals.

“So for the first time in 20 years, we are going to hear from the other person that we know was in the house the night that child was tragically murdered.” 

“We are going to find out what he knows, what actually transpired from his point of view and what happened from the minute he woke up that morning and what has transpired inside that family since then.”

McGraw describes Burke’s demeanor as “very candid and forthcoming.”

The three part series also includes an interview with JonBenet’s father, John Ramsey.

DR. PHIL returns in syndication on September 12.
