Case Against JonBenet Suspect Collapses

Prosecutors had nothing to go on except Karr's bizarre claims

AUGUST 28--Colorado investigators today provided the first insight into what led them to arrest John Mark Karr for the murder of JonBenet Ramsey. In a motion to quash Karr's arrest warrant, the Boulder County district attorney this afternoon revealed that they had little more than Karr's bizarre claims--contained in e-mails, phone calls, and a 153-page manuscript delivered to a University of Colorado journalism professor--to support their belief that he murdered the six-year-old beauty queen in December 1996. The prosecution's motion, a copy of which you can find below, provides a detailed account of the Karr probe, which collapsed today shortly after test results showed that Karr's DNA did not match samples taken from the crime scene. Until April, Karr's lengthy (and anonymous) correspondence with Professor Michael Tracey only reflected his "intense interest" in the Ramsey case, the D.A.'s motion notes. After that point, though, Karr began to claim "more personal knowledge" about the child's slaying and eventually "admitted personal responsibility for the death." Using the pseudonym "Daxis," Karr even forwarded Tracey a manuscript that described his "fascination with the sexuality with young girls, and his involvement with the death of JonBenet Ramsey."

I was suspicious of this the moment the story broke... I had a feeling he was a disturbed man who is probably obsessed with little girls, or Jon Benet in particular, and has built up this whole fantasy in his head...

This is a very sad story which i've followed for some time, and after Karr was arrested thought at last the killer had been caught, but with this development means the authorities are back to square one. Someone killed this little girl and is going to get away with it.

I don't know the facts of the case anymore, but it seems that I remember all signs pointing to an "inside job", which means probably one of the family members... Since they couldn't actually prove that though, it's been a stalemate. There's never been any clues pointing to someone gaining entry to the house to do it though (if my memory is correct).

I know, to me it looked very much like an inside job but like you say they could'nt prove it, makes me very mad someone can do such a thing and get away with it.
