Playing Barbara Walters Revisits the Questions Surrounding JonBenet Ramsey Case on 'American Scandals'

Since leaving The View, Barbara Walters has been busier than ever. ET caught up with the veteran journalist, who opened up about her new Investigation Discovery series, Barbara Walters Presents American Scandals.

"I left The View on a daily basis, but I never stopped doing television," Walters clarified to ET. "I come on now and then to do things like this."

In the special, Walters interviews JonBenet Ramsey's father, John, revisiting the unsolved case of his 6-year-old daughter who was murdered in the family's Colorado home on Christmas Day 1996.

John and his late wife Patsy, JonBenet's mother, were cleared of the crime based on DNA testing, but there are still some doubts in the court of public opinion.

"There still is kind of a cloud over him," Walters said. "There's still people who think, 'Maybe there's more that we don't know.'"

John has remarried since the death of his wife, Patsy, in 2006. The former beauty queen died at the age of 37 after a battle with ovarian cancer. He tied the knot with fashion designer Jan Rousseaux in 2011.

As far as his hope for finding his daughter's killer, Walters said John mostly seeks closure.

"I guess he still hopes, but he'd like to go on with his life," Walters said.

Watch Investigation Discovery's American Scandals on Monday. In the nine-part series, Walters will also revisit her interviews with John Lennon's assassin Mark David Chapman and fallen TV minister James Bakker among others.
