Hate how Topix times out a thread. So trying again:
Karr was arrested in Thailand and extradited. He did not come back to the states on his own, he was under lock and key.
But she does bring up a good point for those of us who have let the BS Parade that was Karr thankfully slip from our memories.
So I pulled up information on the hysterical unfolding of the sham that was the arrest (?) and extradition of Karr by Darth Ramsey's Storm Troopers, and PERV Karr wasn't, in fact, ever charged for the murder of JonBenet.
He wasn't, in fact, actually arrested for that murder. Except by Accuser, Judge, and Exonerator Mary Lacy, who had the power to snatch a man off the street in Thailand so she could hold a VICTORY! lap for finally, at long last, solving the INTRUDER murder of JonBenet.
Except not. But details, details--so tedious.
My confusion...in fact, the WORLD'S confusion, came when Lacy said Karr was arrested for this murder in a press release:
Press Release: JonBenet Ramsey Homicide
"Mary Lacy, Boulder District Attorney confirms that there has been an arrest in Bangkok, Thailand for the December 26, 1996 murder of JonBenet Ramsey. The suspect was arrested on August 16, 2006 following several months of a focused and complex investigation. John and Patsy Ramsey both were consulted during the course of the investigation. The Ramsey family has been notified of the arrest."
And in her press conference:
Aug. 17, 2006 News Conference
Statement from Mary Lacy
"As you are now aware, John Mark Karr, 41 years old, was arrested for the murder of JonBenet Ramsey yesterday morning at approximately 6:00 am in Bangkok, Thailand."
But Karr was actually arrested for the outstanding warrant for those old 2001 child porn charges in California that were used to get him back to the states...with the Ramsey shills running him up the Ramsey intruder lynch-pole the whole way:
Police: Suspect Denies Link To Ramsey

UPDATED: 11:37 pm EDT August 16, 2006
"BANGKOK, Thailand -- An American suspect arrested in connection with the death of 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey denied any connection to her murder when he was detained at his downtown Bangkok apartment Wednesday, police said.
"The suspect was identified as John Mark Karr, according to Lt. Gen. Suwat Tumrongsiskul, who heads the country's immigration police. Karr denied involvement in the slayings, another police official said.
"Karr's visa has been revoked because he was regarded as an 'undesirable person' since he is accused of a crime in the United States, Suwat said.
"Federal officials in the United States, speaking on condition of anonymity, also identified the suspect as Karr, a 42-year-old American, and said he was being held in Bangkok on unrelated sex charges.
"But Thai police said he had not committed any crime in Thailand...."
When Karr got a Colorado defense attorney with half a brain, Temin, he no doubt read Lacy the Riot Act for basically staging an international kidnapping of Karr; she then promptly dropped him faster than a rich prime suspect.
No FORMAL charges against Karr in the Ramsey murder were ever filed. And I doubt anyone thought the "partial gag-order" was still in effect because Lacy held her Mea Culpa press conference the next day, spilling all the details for an hour.
Anyway, you get the idea, and we know how it turned out--exactly as we knew it would when this disgrace to American law was first perpetrated by Lacy.
And I'm running out of characters--unlike the Ramsey case; so thanks to Karr's devoted Intruder fans for walking us through the Ramsey Hall of Shame one more time.
And whatever hairs you IDI have left to split, go right ahead. The Ramseys are still guilty, in my opinion, based on the evidence.
