TOPIC: S.B.T.C. = Shall Be The Conquerer?
The Rocky Mountain News is reporting that a link may have been found between John Mark Karr and the ransom note left by JonBenet Ramsey's murderer:
Boulder District attorney's officials are in contact with a former classmate of John Mark Karr because she has a yearbook signed by him more than 20 years ago that may reveal the answer to one of the great mysteries of the JonBenet Ramsey ransom note - what does "S.B.T.C" stand for?
In the yearbook, Karr signed the classmate’s page and ended his missive with the line, "Though, deep in the future, maybe I shall be the conqueror and live in multiple peace." The words "shall be the conqueror" do not appear anywhere as an acronym, but they are written in upper case characters.
The two and a half-page ransom note was left with the Ramseys the day JonBenet was killed. The note ended, "Victory! S.B.T.C." Through an email and phone conversations, Boulder investigators have been in touch with the classmate for the past couple of days on the matter.
This is a MAJOR stretch to link John Mark Karr to the Ramsey killing! It's obvious, from reading the ransom note (Page2), that the person who wrote it had a huge ego. John Karr's emails show a more demure personality, when it comes to JonBenet. If SBTC meant Shall Be The Conquerer, then Karr would likely have signed the ransom note (Page3) "ISBTC" or "I S.B.T.C.". He would have personalized it -- not just an acronym of a phrase. "I" is important to the ego of the ransom writer. He was trying to put John Ramsey down -- to knock him down a notch. Here's a quote:
"Don't try to grow a brain John. You are not the only fat cat around so don't think that killing will be difficult. Don't underestimate us John. Use that good southern common sense of yours."
The ransom note writer wouldn't leave out the fact the HE would be the conquerer -- especially when SIGNING the note. Nope, this is a stretch -- and a poor one at that.
