Karr won't be charged with JonBenet's murder
BOULDER, Colorado (CNN) -- Schoolteacher John Mark Karr will not be charged with the murder of 6-year-old beauty pageant competitor JonBenet Ramsey, Karr's attorney said Monday.Just as most of us thought John Mark Karr was just another nutcase looking for his week or two of fame. This of course presents FOX, CNN and MSNBC with a problem, they may actually have to report - well, the news. You can bet that the network folks have someone going over the news feeds looking for a missing young white woman to adopt.
"The warrant on Mr. Karr has been dropped by the district attorney," public defender Seth Temin said outside the jail. "They are not proceeding with the case."
He said a hearing scheduled later Monday afternoon has been canceled.
Temin also said he was "deeply disturbed" that authorities in Boulder brought Karr from Thailand with what appears to have been scant evidence.
Colorado authorities have not commented on their decision not to pursue charges against the man named in a warrant alleging murder, kidnapping and sexual assault on a child.
But CNN's Denver affiliate, KUSA, reported that the DNA sample taken from Karr does not match DNA found on JonBenet's body. KUSA quoted two sources in a bulletin on its Web site.
