IN A sen­sa­tional twist, Burke Ram­sey is set to un­mask the mur­derer of his lit­tle sis­ter, child beauty queen JonBenét Ram­sey!

The case re­mains of­fi­cially un­solved nearly 22 years af­ter JonBenét was dis­cov­ered sex­u­ally mo­lested, blud­geoned and stran­gled to death in the base­ment of the fam­ily’s Boul­der, Colo., home on Christ­mas Day 1996.

But Burke, 31, is about to blow the case wide open — af­ter slap­ping broad­cast giant CBS with a $750 mil­lion defama­tion law­suit for fin­ger­ing him as his sis­ter’s killer in the 2016 do­cuseries,

“The Case of: JonBenét Ram­sey.”

He’s claim­ing the mur­der ac­cu­sa­tion is a fraud — and he’s de­ter­mined to clear his name while ex­pos­ing the real killer!

Le­gal teams for both Burke and CBS are now pres­sur­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tors to re­lease con­tents from their files, which Burke claims will prove he did not kill six-year-old JonBenét.

The to­tal files in­clude more than 60,000 pages of con­fi­den­tial po­lice and FBI records, hand­writ­ing analy­ses, DNA ev­i­dence, med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tions and emails amassed dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion — and could fi­nally re­veal who au­thor­i­ties be­lieve is the mur­derer.

The Boul­der Po­lice De­part­ment is fight­ing to keep the files un­der wraps, ar­gu­ing that re­leas­ing them to the pub­lic will ruin their still-ac­tive in­quiry into JonBenét’s slay­ing. Burke’s lawyers have scoffed at this, claim­ing au­thor­i­ties have been leak­ing in­for­ma­tion about the case to the pub­lic, me­dia out­lets and pri­vate in­ves­ti­ga­tors for years.

In the do­cuseries, a panel of law en­force­ment ex­perts re­lied on that in­for­ma­tion to con­clude Burke mur­dered JonBenét.

But in his law­suit, Burke claims key ev­i­dence about the con­tents of JonBenét’s stom­ach was de­lib­er­ately left out of the do­cuseries in or­der to make him look guilty. Ac­cord­ing to the sce­nario pre­sented in the show, then-nineyear-old Burke was fu­ri­ous

at JonBenét for steal­ing pineap­ple from his bowl, so he smashed her over the head with a flashlight, killing her. But Burke’s law­suit claims the pineap­ple found in JonBenét’s body was in the in­testi­nal tract be­low her stom­ach — mean­ing it had been eaten two to three hours be­fore she died.

What’s more, grapes and cherries were found in her sys­tem, which the do­cuseries failed to dis­close.

Burke’s suit also cites ex­perts who tes­ti­fied JonBenét would have died within

three min­utes of a blow to the head, mean­ing she wouldn’t have di­gested the pineap­ple — and mak­ing the do­cuseries’ the­ory im­plau­si­ble!

The show’s law en­force­ment panel also be­lieved the chil­dren’s par­ents, John and Patsy Ram­sey, faked their daugh­ter’s kid­nap­ping to cover for their son.

A fil­ing in Burke’s law­suit blows holes in that the­ory, stat­ing: “De­fen­dants can­not avoid the im­pos­si­bil­ity that, within three min­utes, John and/or Burke could have found JonBenét alive but un­con­scious with no vis­i­ble signs of head trauma, and in­stead of call­ing 911, cre­ated a plan to stage the crime scene as a sex­u­ally mo­ti­vated kid­nap­ping gone wrong, cre­ated the gar­rote, sex­u­ally abused JonBenét with the paint­brush and then stran­gled her to death.” The Ram­sey fam­ily at­tor­ney, L. Lin Wood, in­sisted to The Na­tional EN­QUIRER: “Burke is in­no­cent.”

A 2003 fed­eral court rul­ing on the case also con­cluded

there is “vir­tu­ally no ev­i­dence” any­one in the Ram­sey home com­mit­ted the mur­der.

The most pop­u­lar the­ory is that an in­truder broke a base­ment win­dow, slipped into the home and up to JonBenét’s bed­room, then knocked her out be­fore tak­ing her to the base­ment. Au­thor­i­ties have in­ves­ti­gated sev­eral per­sons of in­ter­est in the case, in­clud­ing con­victed pe­dophile Gary Oliva, lo­cal elec­tri­cian Michael Hel­goth, false con­fes­sor John Mark Karr, house­keeper Linda Hoff­man-Pugh and lo­cal rapist Keith Sch­wina­man. Each one was even­tu­ally elim­i­nated as a sus­pect.

A year-long EN­QUIRER in­ves­ti­ga­tion pointed to Glenn Meyer — a now-de­ceased drifter who was se­cretly liv­ing in a base­ment apart­ment across the street from the Ram­seys’ home — as a likely cul­prit.

In Fe­bru­ary, Meyer’s widow, Char­lotte Hey, 86, de­tailed how she be­lieved her ex­hus­band was re­spon­si­ble for JonBenét’s mur­der.

“When I asked him if he mur­dered her, he would just smile at me. He wouldn’t deny it,” Char­lotte re­called.
