In a preview for his first ever interview in the 20 years since JonBenet’s unresolved murder, Ramsey told Dr Phil what it’s like living under and intense cloud of suspicion for the better part of his 29 years.
“The first thing I remember is my mum bursting in my room, really frantic, saying, ‘Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh!’ running around my room — now I know looking for JonBenét,” he told Dr. Phil.
“The next thing I remember is a police officer coming into my room and shining a flashlight.”
Bizarrely for the viewer, Ramsey is seen smiling throughout the recollection, a jarring reaction to a sensitive tragedy.
According to Dr. Phil, who sat down with US TODAY’s Natalie Morales after the interview, viewers may be surprised by Ramsey’s demeanour throughout the entirety of the conversation.
“For 20 years he has been off the grid. And my impression is he’s socially awkward,” he said.
