The whackadoo had zero to do with it
I’ve been offline most of the day, so I just flipped on the news to see this ho hum development all over the news.
Prosecutors abandoned their case against schoolteacher John Mark Karr on Monday, saying that DNA tests failed to link Karr to the slaying of child beauty contestant JonBenet Ramsey.
Karr was briefly freed from jail but was quickly returned to await extradition to California, where he is wanted on five misdemeanor child pornography counts, Boulder County Sheriff Joseph Pelle said.
District Attorney Mary Lacy revealed how the case against Karr was built — and unraveled — in a five-page motion asking a judge to drop the arrest warrant that brought Karr from Bangkok, Thailand. (Read the documents. (Viewer discretion advised.))
DNA tests completed Saturday confirmed that Karr “was not the source of the DNA found on the underwear of JonBenet Ramsey” — disproving his claim that he was sexually involved with the child and killed her by accident.
Karr’s family also provided “strong circumstantial” evidence he was with them in Georgia at the time of the crime, court papers stated. The prosecutor’s motion said “no evidence has developed, other than his own repeated admissions, to place Mr. Karr at the scene of the crime.”
I called it (as did most people with brain cells).
