Breaking NEWS: John Karr most likely not the killer

John Karr looks to not be the man...

BREAKING NEWS from MSNBC shows that the DNA samples from John Karr doesnt match the DNA samples from Jon Benet from the murder scene. Back to square 1.

I don't believe what they were trying to match was a definitive sample that would prove guilt. Not finding a DNA match just means you didn't find a DNA match. It's not the same level of proof as finding a DNA match on a sample of something that would have indicated guilt, such as semen or blood. Unless you're OJ that is.

Agreed. No shit.

So now, what...maybe they'll still charge him with making false statements to authorities? I'm sure Dateline (et al) will still find a way to run a couple of hour-long specials about him. I just don't want to see this freaky little waif in the news anymore.

How about we all just agree to not care about anything about Jon-Benet Ramsey ever again?

Why is this news?

His plan:

1. claim guilt in case to get out of a third world country (to avoid charges)
2. draw case out as long as possible to let case in 3rd world country grow cold
3. get ACLU involved to avoid being sent back as long as possible
4. get off scott free

I suspect it's a case of "If you put an infinite number of crazy pedophiles in front of an infinite number of typewriters, sooner or later, one of them will type out an accurate description of the crime scene (along with the complete works of Shakespeare)."

He'd been in communication with that guy that made a documentary about the murder, right?

I'm sure Nancy is happy she'll be able to blame the dead mother again.

Unfortunately for Karr, he was found Not Guilty in the court of public opinion even before the DNA test.

Too true. Even if the DNA tests had come back positive, I still wouldn't have believed it.

Yeah.. they have to get him off the streets and away from kids.
I think there are some other charges pending in California. Hopefully, they'll stick and get this weirdo away from kids.
