What a difference 12 years make … Ramsey family cleared of JonBenet’s murder and receive apology from Boulder County District Attorney Mary Lacy.
Six year old JonBenet Ramsey was murdered in Boulder, CO in 1996. At the time of her death and the investigation that followed, JonBenet Ramsey’s family were put under the spot light and all but accused of the little 6-year-old beauty queen death. The family had remained under suspicion for years.
John Ramsey found his daughter’s strangled and bludgeoned body in the basement of the family’s home in Boulder on Dec. 26, 1996. Patsy Ramsey said she found a ransom note demanding $118,000 for her daughter.
Now some 12 years later prosecutors have cleared JonBenet Ramsey’s parents and brother of JonBenet’s murder and have apologized to them for the cloud of suspicion the family was put under. According to prosecutors new DNA tests which focus on skin cells left behind point to a mysterious outsider. Unfortunately the news that the family was cleared of any wrong doings and the vindication by these DNA tests came to late for Patsy Ramsey as she died from ovarian cancer in 2006.
New evidence renews old question … Who killed JonBenet? Who ever did it is still out there …
“To the extent that we may have contributed in any way to the public perception that you might have been involved in this crime, I am deeply sorry,” Boulder County District Attorney Mary Lacy wrote in a letter to the little girl’s father, John Ramsey. “No innocent person should have to endure such an extensive trial in the court of public opinion.”
Lacy said new “touch DNA” tests on skin cells that were left behind on JonBenet’s long underwear point to an “unexplained third party” and not a member of the family.
- Results point to ‘unexplained third party,’ prosecutor says
- Family Reacts To Evidence Clearing Ramseys
- Vindication comes too late for Patsy Ramsey
- Ramseys Cleared in JonBenet’s Death
- DNA clears JonBenet’s family, points to mystery killer
UPDATE I: Interview with John Mark Karr with Greta Van Susteren
Joran Van der Sloot/Peter R. De Vries Tapes: Why Some Pundits in the Natalee Holloway Case Should be Seen and Not Heard
Spare us the spin that Joran Van der Sloot made a “false confession”. Joran’s attorney Joe Tacopina floated that concept early after the Peter De Vries tapes were released and it was shot down immediately. Tacopina referenced the concept that “false confession” exists and then in the next breathe said, but not in this case. However, it would appear that his fellow partners in crime, defense attorney, have followed his lead.
Here is a helpful hint to pundits who discuss the Natalee Holloway case … know the topic that you are pretending to be an expert on. This message especially goes on to Defense attorney Ann Bremner from the Nancy Grace show.
There is nothing more pathetic than to hear an attorney on a cable show pretend to know what they are talking about just because they are an attorney. There is also nothing more hideous than defense attorney forwarding an agenda of one of their own. The comments seem to be even worse when one listens to a defense attorney ramble with some on the most ridiculous excuses for suspects. In this case its using the theory of “false confession”.
How could anyone compare two cases that were more different in how the suspects handled themselves with regards to confessing to a crime?
(Go to minute 5:25 to hear the comments in question)
GRACE: OK. Out to the lawyers, Randi Karmel, Richard Herman, Ann Bremner.
Ann Bremner, you`ve got a guy that says I hope you don`t find her body because my semen will be in, on, and about the body. You`ve got him describing her underwear and he`s accurate according to her mother. This is not just caressing on the beach. Now he says she died of a convulsion and he disposed of her body?
ANN BREMNER, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Well, Nancy, either this is another iteration of statements he`s given before, which there have been scores of different statements, or in terms of the confession and proving this case, remember John Mark Carr. I killed JonBenet, coming home with the shrimp and a champagne. And, in fact, he didn`t. They tried every which way to show that he did it, but in this case, there is corpus delecti, no evidence.
GRACE: But the big difference – Ann, Ann, I appreciate that. Thank you.
GRACE: Randi Karmel, the difference is that Joran Van der Sloot was seen by witnesses with her the last known person to be with her when she was alive. He confesses that he had sex with her. I can`t imagine that that was voluntary. And then disposes of his – of the body. Now, if it had been an innocent death, an accidental death, why not call 911, Randy?
Actually, the difference is that not only was Joran Van der Sloot one of the last known people ever to be seen with Natalee Holloway before she disappeared forever. Joran Van der Sloot had denied any involvement in Natalee’s disappearance or death from the outset. Joran has never admitted in an interview or in statements to police that he had involvement in the crime. (That is statements that we know of unless any were destroyed from 5/30/05). Until the Peter R. De Vries tape was released, Joran had denied all. Now, when he thought there was no camera or public audience … he made the admission and confession.
Let’s compare that to the situation with John Mark Karr’s “false confession as defense attorney and so called pundit Anne Bremner wants to do. From the outset John Mark Karr stated that he had involvement in the crime against Jon Benet Ramsey. Karr never said he did not do it, then he did, then he didn’t. He admitted that he killed Jon Benet and stuck to the story. Even after it was determined through DNA that John Mark Karr had no involvement in the Jon Benet murder case, he still insisted he did. John Mark Karr wanted to be found guilty.
The two cases have absolutely nothing in common when it comes to the “false confession” defense. To say that “false confession” is what Joran Van der Sloot did is just plain lazy punditry. Joran Van der Sloot has denied all involvement from day one and has lied along the way in his denials. Maybe it’s time that cable shows get pundits on that know the subject matter and are familiar with the cases, rather than the only criteria being that they are a lawyer.
John Mark Karr … he just won’t go away. It is amazing how trouble seems to follow those that make no effort to avoid it. The ex-suspect in the JonBenet Ramsey murder was arrested for domestic violence on Friday night in Georgia after police received a 911 call from Karr’s fathers home. John Mark Karr moved to the Atlanta area in October, 2006 much to the dismay of fellow Chastain Park neighbors.
Officers received a 911 call late Friday from the house about an argument between Karr, his girlfriend and his father, Sandy Springs Police Lt. Steve Rose said.
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)
John Mark Karr Interview With Greta Van Susteren … Sources say John Karr & Attorneys will State he was Given Wine Prior to Interview
Tonight Greta Van Susteren of Fox News “On the Record” will interview John Mark Karr. File this one under the strange getting even stranger. Once again the man who supposedly admitted to killing JonBenet Ramsey only to be let go as DNA proved otherwise and was to be charged with possession of child pornography only to be let go for lack of evidence is back in the news. John Mark Karr and his attorney might have some interesting comments tonight. There seems to be a major difference of opinion with an interview Karr gave last week. Excerpts of Dr. Keith Ablow interview were seen on The Today Show last Friday. The full interview is to air Tuesday. Maybe.
A reliable source has said that John Mark Karr stated that an injunction is being filed against The NBC “Today Show” and “The Dr. Keith Ablow Show,” Telepictures and Cathy Chermol, Executive Producer of the show, to stop an airing of a an interview. Karr is claiming that he was given six drinks at 11 PM. at night.
Sources say that the filming was supposedly only suppose to be a test run through for a future interview. John Mark Karr is claiming that a piece of paper was signed while he was intoxicated. Karr stated to source that “after realizing what that had done to him, he demanded the paper back to only receive a false copy and not the original as represented.”

Just one day after John Mark Karr had his child porn charges dropped, he has questioned by the police. One day and the police have detained, questioned and released John Mark Karr. Seems that a witness saw Karr peeking in the windows of a school.
File this one under … after all this you have got to be kidding me category. John Mark Karr is a free man. Where does John Mark Karr send the thank you to the Boulder DA for his free plane ride and meal home? Coming soon to a TV interview near you …
A California judge has dismissed all charges against John Mark Karr after prosecutors stated they did not have enough evidence to take the case to trial. The supposed evidence that the DA had was compromised in that they lost the original computer and the mirror hard drive copies were questionable as well.
Sonoma County Superior Court Judge Rene Chouteau ordered Karr released immediately, bringing an end to his two-month odyssey in the U.S. criminal justice system after he was extradited from Thailand on suspicion of killing the 6-year-old beauty queen.
