In the 45-second teaser, John Ramsey says: "We were the victims of a lynch mob by the media" as he, his wife, Patsy, and their son, Burke, were at one point persons of interest in the killing of 6-year-old JonBenet on Christmas 1996.

The trailer also shows detectives and other investigators who worked the case and will provide new theories about how the little girl died and shed light on evidence as they try to prove someone broke into the family's Boulder, Colorado home.
