"That's not my son...he wouldn't go after minors." said the distraught mother.

Give me a break!! This sick sonofabitch knew the girl was 15YEARS OLD before he left mommy's house and flew out here. Hope that he is held in general population, so inmates can get to know him better. That would make for a nice Christmas present for our innocent inmates!!(Sarcasim, people)

His dirtbag lawyer called him decent. HAHA! What, Illinois condones sex with juveniles? Lock this shiithead up and let the inmates a a go with him, see if cums outs alright!!~

He's a pedophile no matter how you put it. But what are the girls parents saying after all it was their child out there in the parking lot with this scum.

What if the girl lies about her age and she says she is old enough and living on her own, what if age really is only a number to an extent, what if they are just following their hearts and thought it was meant to be, what if there really wasnt any intent to hurt the minor in this case, what if it really was a present and this person was just truely doing what the other asked? There are too many what ifs out there. for people who only see black and white look for the gray somewhere in there and see what you might find. You only see what the newspapers and news want you to see or hear, what if this was your family would you be so close-minded then? A mother knows her child like no other person in the world does. I agree with "what if" its not only or always the mans fault! there are women out there that do these things as well, but you never see or hear about that. Take for instance the nun who is being charged the same way from 40-50 years ago!There are too many what ifs know all the facts before you judge anyone!

Is funny that you say you know him because Karl has never been to Tx. So unless you have been to Big Rock IL which 90% of the People in IL havnt heard of until this artical I think that you are confused. Second off this girl has herself listed as 18 on myspace and facebook so for all we know he did not know she was 15. Third she was persuing him she wanted him to come out to see her for christmas she asked him to. I know it dosnt matter because she is 15 and the whole he didnt know argument will never hold up in court, but I do know Karl and I was shocked when I found this out. I knew he was going out there for vacation but I did not know he was meeting a 15 year old girl. If I did the Chicago PD would have met him at the plane and he never would have gone. I just wish that people would do a little reserch into the facts before the post ignorant uninformed comments on the internet.

something to think about.....This astute citizen who say them together could it have been possible that it was a friend of the girl, Kyla, and she set him up...

I'm Karl's neighbor and friend. U have no idea what u are talking about. Karl is a good guy and that girl tricked him by telling him she was being abused and assaulted by her step father. He thought he was rescuing her, which unfortunately is a young man's disease. She was playing a game with him and has now ruined her future. She was playing him and didnt care who she hurt. Now his life is ruined... he is pegged a pedophile and he is not. She set him up she was telling him that she was going to marry him... she was sending hime gifts and shit. She's not the victim u are thinking she is. She didn't tell him she was 15 until after the boy was already head over heels. Jenny is probably Karl's crazy ass pothead baby mama... and in any case doesn't know shit about Karl. He is a friend of me and my mom. you guys watch "How to catch a predator" and think you guys know what goes on in the mind of a man that gets caught in this situation and u don't. this wasn't a sting... He wasn't baited... He thought he had found love. I have a child that i would trust Karl with at anytime... he is an honest trustworthy guy and you guys are judging him before u know all the evidence...

I knew him and he was the nicest guy ever. He didnt deserve this and now he is dead because of it. Screw all of you for what you did. He was not guilty. But now hes dead because of all of you
