Today I read and watched “JonBenet Ramsey's Brother Breaks Silence 20 Years After Her Murder.” By ENJOLI FRANCIS.This article was mainly focused on JonBenet's older brother as the main suspect in the case.The article included an interview with Burke Ramsey, which was his first time speaking publicly about JonBenet’s death. The interview was recorded in 2016, 20 years after the murder of JonBenet. Burke states "For the last 20 years, I wanted to grow up like a normal kid, which does not include going in front of TV cameras.” I, myself find it ironic that Burke was never publicly interviewed until he was grown and officially ruled out as a potential suspect. I believe it is clear that JonBenet’s older brother was an aspect of his sisters' murder or at least knew exactly what happened the night of the murder. However, his parents tried to protect him as a young child by not allowing their son to be interviewed in the event that he would slip up and say something that could put the whole family under investigation. The article and interview used pathos by appealing to the viewer's emotions as Burke Ramsey was explaining and revisiting the thoughts of his sister's death. Although I do firmly believe that Burke Ramsey assisted in his sisters' murder, I do believe it was most likely unintentional.
