Earlier this year, we reported rumours that the true crime train had continued chugging on its merry way and would be delivering us a thrilling documentary series on the murder of JonBenét Ramsey from CBS.
CBS have finally now confirmed this, only a month before the series goes to air.
The 6-hour docu-series, titled ‘The Case Of: JonBenét Ramsey‘ will focus on the case of the famous 6-year-old beauty queen who was found beaten and strangled in her own home in 1996. The case was reopened in 2009, but still remains unsolved to this day.
The show will interview heaps of people who were involved with the original case, including former New York City prosecutor Jim Clemente, forensic scientist Dr. Henry Lee, former chief investigator for the District Attorney in Boulder, James Kolar and leading forensic pathologist Dr. Werner Spitz.
The series will air over six days, from September 18 to 25.

Interestingly enough, along with the CBS series, there’s actually a surprising amount of JonBenét-related things happening before the end of this year.
Days after CBS’ announcement, Lifetime also confirmed their own television movie about the infamous murder, called ‘Who Killed JonBenét?‘. The film will allegedly focus on the day Ramsey’s body was found, but will refocus the case using recently surfaced information and theories. That’ll air late this year.

PLUS, Investigation Discovery is also releasing its own three-night special series based on the murder called, ‘JonBenét: An American Murder Mystery‘ – also airing in September.
JonBenét Ramsey is even on the cover of People Magazine next week:
AND Ramsey‘s brother, who is now 29, is appearing on ‘Dr. Phil’ around the same time that all of this is happening.
But hey, fans of true crime, or anyone who loves trying to get to the bottom 20-year-old cases that cannot be solved – the second half of ’16 is your time to shine.
