Things Ain’t Always What They Seem

Prosecutors have dropped the charges against Alabama’s own John Mark Karr:

Prosecutors abruptly dropped their case Monday against John Mark Karr in the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey, saying DNA tests failed to put him at the scene despite his repeated insistence he killed the 6-year-old beauty queen. 

Two points here.

One, even confessions are not conclusive proof of guilt. This is not the first time DNA has exonerated someone who had confessed to the crime.   

Two, regardless of whether or not Karr killed JonBenet, he is nuts.

    I was actually expecting this, what with the press’s talk of, “There was all this ‘speculation’ about the parent’s killing their own daughter. I hope this puts all that to rest since we now have the real psycho killer who did it.”

    Since the press was obviously the ones who started that rumor about the parents, somewhere I was thinking, “I bet next time they’re going to have to talk about the ‘speculation’ that that Karr guy did it.” Looks like I was right.

    You’re right, Wheeler. This guy is nuts! It doesn’t look like he killed Jon Benet, but I’d hate to tune into his fantasy life. Ewwww.

    The Karr business was ridiculous from the start. I think information held by the original investigating agency leaves a great deal to be desired.

    It was always curious to me that the media never placed in the area at the time of the murder, despite the confessions and subsequent circumstancal alibis that came from the family. All the confession served to do was get him a business class flight back from Bangkok.

    At least, there’re the charges still pending in California. Any bets on whether he gets bail?
