Arrest made in JonBenet Ramsey case

I truly hope that they have the right person. I hope that there is a special place in hell for those who hurt children. I can’t believe that it has already been ten years.

(CNN) — Authorities have arrested a “possible suspect” in the decade-old JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation, law enforcement sources told CNN on Wednesday.

An investigator with the Boulder County, Colorado, District Attorney’s office traveled to Bangkok, Thailand, and is bringing a suspect back to the United States, CNN Denver affiliate KUSA reported.

The suspect was arrested Wednesday morning and has confessed to certain elements of the crime that are unknown to the general public, KUSA reported.

The man already was already held in Bangkok on unrelated sex charges, sources told The Associated Press.

Prosecutors have not confirmed the identity of the suspect, but expect to hold a press conference later today.

JonBenet’s beaten and strangled body was found in the basement of the family home in Boulder, Colorado, the day after Christmas in 1996. She was 6.”

    THE key to answering the guilt question will be a comparison of the DNA found under JonBenet’s fingernails and in her underwear with that of John Mark Karr. If the DNA doesn’t match, he is NOT the killer. His ex-wife, Lara Karr, also gave him an alibi, saying they were in Alabama the night the murder took place. She has NO reason to even open her mouth to help the guy. After all, she divorced him after he was charged for child pornography back in 2001 (a charge that is still outstanding).

    I just watched part of a news broadcast with John Mark Karr — including his verbal statements that were quoted by the Associated Press earlier. My guess is that he’s a psycho who studied the case so long he has personalized it. In his psychopathic, pedophilic mind, he’s is sorry JonBenet died — and feels guilty because he couldn’t do anything to stop the murder.
    It’s also pretty clear to me that this guy is gay. Therefore, he wouldn’t have fallen “in love” with JonBenet Ramsey, nor would he have drugged her to have sex with her — which, btw, doesn’t fit crime scene evidence at all. Karr is likely (and definitely *not* associated to his homosexuality) mentally unstable — which is pretty clear from the video interview, too.
    I’m going to go ahead and prematurely conclude that John Mark Karr is NOT JonBenet Ramsey’s killer, but he is probably guilty of other crimes — such has child molestation, being a purveyor of child pornography and possibly kidnapping of young boys for the purpose of sexual abuse.

    I doubt this is the real killer. He is trying to dodge hard jail time in Thailand, what better way to escape than to confess to this one? Also, his ex-wife says it is geographically impossible for him to be involved in this murder.

    what is truly sad is what those parents went through all those years being accused of killing her.
