Burke Ramsey, the brother of murdered Colorado child pageant queen JonBenet Ramsey, has filed a $750 million defamation lawsuit against CBS for implicating him in the death of his sister.
JonBenet Ramsey's body was found beaten and strangled at her family's home in Boulder on December 26, 1996.
Burke Ramsey, a MI resident, is going after the network for a television series in September concluding he was the one to kill his six-year old sister. She was found strangled with her wrists tied above her head and a garrote embedded in her neck.
CBS spokesman Dustin Smith declined to comment on the lawsuit.
Police have since collected and studied thousands of pieces of evidence but no-one has been charged with the killing and the case remains open.

Leicester City striker Vardy ban upheld by FA
The Foxes have won only four of their opening 17 league games of the campaign and are just three points above the relegation zone. The Foxes launched an appeal with the Football Association (FA) and hoped to have Vardy available over the Christmas period.
Burke was exonerated of the unsolved murder by DNA evidence in 1999, and his parents were also removed from the suspect list in 2008. Saying his reputation was destroyed by the three-part program, he is seeking $250M in compensatory damages and twice that in punitive damages.
In September, Burke Ramsey broke a silence of 20 years' length.
But the district attorney now overseeing the case has said it was premature to exonerate the Ramseys and ordered additional tests using new DNA testing technology that authorities hope will further the investigation.
"The accusation that Burke Ramsey killed his sister was based on a compilation of lies, half-truths, manufactured information, and the intentional omission and avoidance of truthful information about the murder of JonBenet Ramsey", the lawsuit states.
Now, TMZ reports that Mr. Ramsay, 29, is going after CBS as a whole, and has filed a suit in MI court against the network for $500 million in punitive damages and $250 million in compensatory damages.
