Airdate: The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey
Nine will fast-track true crime doco which marks 20 years since the unsolved murder of US child beauty queen.
As previously tipped, Nine is set to screen The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey, to mark 20 years since the unsolved murder of the US child beauty queen.
Several JonBenét Ramsey specials are set for the US this month. This one is a CBS Critical Content series produced by Tom Forman (48 Hours, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition).
The premiere will be fast-tracked from the US at 8.45pm Monday, September 19, same day as the US.
Updated: The conclusion will follow on September 20, after producers in the US scaled the series back from 3 to 2 nights.
Twenty years after the six-year-old beauty queen’s tragic death, The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey reunites the original investigators with new experts and fresh witnesses, who together revisit the murder that captivated the world. The production sees the entire crime scene rebuilt in a 2000-square metre warehouse, using state-of-the-art technology to reveal all in the mysterious murder case – and finally unmask the killer.
JonBenét Ramsey was found slain in the basement of her Colorado home in 1996, hours after she was reported missing. Officials, and public opinion, initially suspected her parents and older brother of the crime. The family was partially exonerated in 2003 and completely cleared of any wrongdoing in 2008. The case was reopened in 2009, and remained unsolved until now.
