The case remains officially unsolved, nearly 22 years after JonBenet was discovered in the basement of the family’s Boulder, Colorado, home on Christmas Day 1996.

“Burke’s definitely gotten some justice,” a Ramsey family insider told US publication, InTouch.

Meanwhile, Burke’s lawyer Lin Wood tweeted “Mission accomplished”.

“After handling many defamation cases for them over the past 20 years, hopefully this is my last defamation case for this fine family”.
