Breaking: Karr’s DNA doesn’t match JonBenet killer

posted at 3:57 pm on August 28, 2006 by Allahpundit

According to KUSA-TV, citing two sources. No charges will be filed against him.

Free as a bird, baby!

Update: Well, except for those child porn charges in California.

Update: Goldstein considers four possible explanations. Number two is looking good at the moment.

I figure he confessed for the first class flight home with all the fixins. Anyone else have a theory?

THeDRiFTeR on August 28, 2006 at 4:02 PM

This case has continued to be bungled since day one.. The crime scene was never secured…The DA kept looking at her parents as the key suspects even after they passed 5 lie detector tests…..I am afraid that the killer will never be known and prosecuted…

Howver this guy is a evil and most likely dangerous to children….

robo on August 28, 2006 at 4:07 PM

What about the charges in Thailand?! Send him back where he belongs. He needs a good caning, and then a lllooooonnnnngg sentence where they know how to punish criminals.

Said it before, I’ll say it again; he played us and our legal system like a fiddle.

Economy class!

Economy class!

More like in the cargo hold.

They don’t have steerage any more, so this is the closest we can get to it.

Bob's Kid on August 28, 2006 at 4:15 PM

OK, well, their punishment isn’t as tough as I’d hoped:

A Bangkok court yesterday sentenced a member of a famous Australian-Thai showbusiness family to seven-and-a-half-years’ jail for molesting boys, the harshest penalty given for the offence in Thailand.

Chalermchai Poopart, 36, had been given a suspended sentence in an earlier child molestation case, leading to accusations that the courts were influenced by his family’s fame.

Gotta love that name!
More.

Craving media attention, Cindy Sheehan admits to 1996 murder of JonBenet Ramsey

NTWR on August 28, 2006 at 4:20 PM

Sounds like Chalermchai Poopart is Thailand’s answer to Michael Jackson. As a youngster he was a member of the “Poopart 5.” They weren’t singers…

jdpaz on August 28, 2006 at 4:31 PM

“Poopart 5.” They weren’t singers…

how are you so sure? You have an exhibit hangin’ on a wall somewhere?

jdpaz -You left yourself open for that one.

While I semi trust 9KUSA TV as a whole, I do not trust Paula Woodward as far as …well you know. I’m waiting for the evening news, just to be sure.(and praying they caught the guy for some reason other than free airfare, altho that is what I posted the first day, he wanted a free ride to America)

shooter on August 28, 2006 at 4:44 PM

What Karr really wanted: free (taxpayer paid) transgender surgery while residing in the Colorado prison system.

He is a very sick individual. Send him back to Thailand.

JA6601 on August 28, 2006 at 4:49 PM

Seems to me that this outcome was visible from a long way off – a creepazoid perv who wanted, and got his 15 Minutes.

What’s Greta gonna talk about now on, “On The Record?” Back to Natalie Holloway, I suppose.

Gotta admit, though, that it is an achievement – a dubious one, to be sure, but an achievement nonetheless – to manage to disgust even the Thais enough that they’d want to give him the boot. I’ve spent some time in Bangkok, they don’t shock easily …

Spurius Ligustinus on August 28, 2006 at 5:16 PM

In a related development, John Mark Karr has been extradited to Texas to stand trial for the murder of President John F. Kennedy.

Labamigo on August 28, 2006 at 5:34 PM

No…not on a wall…

JA6601 may be on to something with the xgender thing.

jdpaz on August 28, 2006 at 5:37 PM

Poopart owes his inspiration to the famous “Brown Stains” exhibit by the renowned Ho Flung Poo.

bbz123 on August 28, 2006 at 5:38 PM

Heck, he’s an American in a Thai jail and had to think of a way to save his perverted arse, so….

He says he did it, gets a business class ticket back to the “land of the big PX,” knowing full well he’d be exonerated by the DNA mismatch.

That’s one scheming, cunning reprobate we have here.

Corky on August 28, 2006 at 6:00 PM

Drifter, he wanted to be on FOX’s Greta and CNN’s Nancy shows, for at least one year. I’m surprised he didn’t also claim he knew where Natalie is.

Entelechy on August 28, 2006 at 6:09 PM

Well, even though it seems like he’d get a max of 7 1/2 years in Tailand, WE wouldn’t have to pay for his lily white child molestin ass while he sits in jail. I’m not so sure that I believe he’ll get real time here, AND we’ll have to pay for it. GRRRRRRRR…

tickleddragon on August 28, 2006 at 6:14 PM

Althouuuuugh… if he does go to prison here, there’s probably more of a chance that someone will put a broomstick in an opportune place and break it off. Hmmmm…that may be worth the money.

tickleddragon on August 28, 2006 at 6:15 PM

Entelechy, I’m sure that Natalie claim is forthcoming…

tickleddragon on August 28, 2006 at 6:17 PM

This guy? looks so creepy that in his time Alfred Hitchcock would have had to invent him…

Entelechy on August 28, 2006 at 6:21 PM

You know, he does bear a little resemblance to Norman Bates…if you squint.

tickleddragon on August 28, 2006 at 6:46 PM

Drudge says he’ll be charged in California….developing…

tickleddragon-I bet you’re right about both the Holloway claim and the broom stick… prisoners are pretty tough on the child molesters. Hopefully it won’t mean a private cell for life for the creep.

NTWR on August 28, 2006 at 6:49 PM

to manage to disgust even the Thais enough that they’d want to give him the boot. I’ve spent some time in Bangkok, they don’t shock easily …

Bangkok go-go bars catering to tourists are not representative of Thailand as a whole. They do shock easily. Thai culture is generally very conservative.

sandberg on August 28, 2006 at 7:14 PM

NTWR, the possible light at the end of THAT particular tunnel is, like Dahmer, they sometimes put them to work with a mop to clean parts of the prison. And OOPS…someone just beat the bugger to death with his mop.

tickleddragon on August 28, 2006 at 7:17 PM

I am so sick of this story!
I am so sorry about JonBenet. It is a tragedy BUT the coverage and ghoulishness of this has gone beyond what it deserved.
I watched the endless stream of this overly madeup little girl and was sickened.
Being from the South, honestly I have never seen such excess in pushing a CHILD to be an “object”. I am horrified that this child died the way she did but there is so much blame to go around that whomever really committed the crime was merely one element in it.

labwrs on August 28, 2006 at 9:47 PM

I smell a book deal!

speed647 on August 28, 2006 at 10:07 PM

Why didn’t they leave this idiot in Thailand?? Before he was picked up, there was already enough proof circulating he was a liar.

gary on August 29, 2006 at 10:15 AM

At first I thought it said Karl Rove’s DNA.

entagor on August 29, 2006 at 10:18 AM

If you were to put this whole saga, from the horrible beginning to this sordid point, into a screenplay, no one would buy it–too preposturous even for fiction.
