Although John Mark Karr has been convicted of no crime that would have made him register as a sex offender, the attention he has brought upon himself and his actions have basically given people the willies.
“I understand he is a free man, but everything I’ve read about him seems a little unbalanced,” said Kim Berry, a mother of three teenagers who lives several houses away from the elder Karr. “It’s not a good situation.”
A local neighborhood group, The Chastain Park Civic Association, have sent thousands of emails out to home owners announcing that John Mark Karr was now living in their community into his fathers home. A home close to a play ground and a well to do Atlanta area. There go the property values.
The Chastain Park Civic Association sent an e-mail Thursday to its 2,000 member homeowners announcing that John Mark Karr had moved into his father’s home in the well-to-do Atlanta neighborhood where houses sell for more than $600,000.
The e-mail noted that Wex Karr’s house is about three blocks from a playground. (AP)
