Lawyer: No Charges for JonBenet Suspect

BOULDER, Colo. -- Prosecutors decided not to charge John Mark Karr in the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey, his lawyers said Monday after a TV station reported that the schoolteacher's DNA failed to match genetic material on the 6-year-old girl's body.

"The warrant on Mr. Karr has been dropped by the district attorney," public defender Seth Temin said outside the jail. "They are not proceeding with the case."

Boulder County District Attorney Mary Lacy's office did not return repeated calls from The Associated Press.

Too Saucy, a week ago, Aug. 21, 2:46 pm...

Can I just say I'm a tad wary of this story about John Karr, who has supposedly confessed to killing JonBenet Ramsey in Colorado a decade ago, and has just been extradited from Thailand, where he had been living for years.

Let's remember, the press, especially the cable networks, had already tried and convicted the parents for killing their daughter. Or it was JonBenet's big brother. Now it's: "Oops, ok, maybe they didn't do it, but THIS guy - yup, he's the one!"

They never learn from their excesses.

There are people who, for some bizarre reason, will confess to crimes they didn't commit. I've also heard a theory that he was about to be arrested in Thailand for some horrendous crime, and, not wanting to face Thai justice, said he did this, guaranteed to get him extradited to the U.S.

Listen, he may very well have killed that little girl; he clearly is some sort of wackjob, with sexual and other problems, but I wish they would wait to let it play out in court before they start the breathless theorizing.
