TOPIC: Is there ANY way John Mark Karr Could Be Guilty?
Family friend Jonathan McCrary told FOXNews that John Mark Karr's mother, Patricia Elaine Adcock, tried to burn Karr alive when he was a baby. McCrary, described as a long-time friend of Karr's father, Wexford Karr, said Karr's mother thought her infant son was possessed by demons. He said she built a pyre of kindling around the infant and attempted to set it on fire. She was stopped, and later was committed to a mental hospital in Milledgeville, Ga.
McCrary also dismissed Karr's claim to have murdered the beauty pageant princess. McCrary said Karr visited Boulder after the killing to research a book about pedophiles he was planning to write. Karr entered the Ramsey house through the broken basement window that JonBenet's father, John Ramsey, said he never fixed, McCrary said. Isn't it spooky to know that pervert was in the house -- even if the Ramsey's were not at home?!?
McCrary also called Karr a "genius," and said Karr's "confession" was merely a ploy to avoid jail in Thailand and return to the states, where he knew his legal troubles would be cleared up quickly. Remember, Karr was reportedly under investigation or at least in the eye of Thai authorities as a suspect in child sex trafficking in Bangkok. Maybe he is a genius -- genius enough to get himself in the newspapers and on TV -- and out of Thailand before spending years in a Thai jail for pedophilia. No one knows at this point. McCrary insisted Karr had nothing to do with JonBenet Ramsey's death. "He's a pedophile, not a murderer," McCrary said.
Meanwhile, a lawyer for Karr's relatives says a photo has been located showing Karr's three sons at a 1996 Christmas dinner gathering in Atlanta. John Karr is not in the photo. Lawyer Gary Harris said Karr's father, Wexford Karr, found the photo, and relatives are certain that if the sons were there, John Karr would have been, too. He told The Washington Post and The Denver Post that the photo is from 1996 because an infant pictured in it was born in December of that year. "If he had flown to Colorado or somewhere at that time, they would have remembered it," Harris told The Washington Post. So, is there ANY way John Mark Karr could be guilty? I still say "NO, not for JonBenet's murder, but YES for being a pedophile (among possibly other things)" -- and I didn't need the handwriting experts .02 worth of opinions, either.
