CASE CLOSED! - update


by blogger jgl

original posting from rocky mountain news

Boulder District Attorney investigator Mark Spray has contacted a man who believes he could have encountered the JonBenet Ramsey murder suspect on a bus in the early morning hours of Dec. 26, 1996.

Daniel Pride, now of Portsmouth, N.H., said he was at the downtown bus station in Boulder sometime shortly after 12:30 a.m. when a man arrived, behaving strangely and bearing a resemblance to John Mark Karr, arrested last week in the case.

He said the man didn't want to be noticed and pulled away when Pride asked if he had a light for a cigarette. The man boarded the same bus as Pride, and exchanged strange glances with him once aboard, Pride said.

CASE CLOSED!

UPDATE:
I'll admit it. When you're wrong, you're wrong. I thought for sure that when they found that guy that thought he might have seen someone that may have looked something like John Karr at a bus stop 10 years ago... I really took a bath on that one.

What's the deal with this DNA evidence? Does anyone know if they have a full profile? no hits in CODIS? have they revisited the evidence with mini-strs? Is this public information or is it intellectual property of the state of Colorado?

Whether Karr committed the Ramsey crime or not, he is a danger to children everywhere. And for that he deserves but one fate. I write about him and others of his ilk at www.nicholasborelli.com

Rather or not they had any direct evidence on Karr, after hearing his comments on the murder...I am amazed at the reactions given by Karr family spokesman and family members (when speaking on how outrageuos it is to drag him over to the U.S. from Thailand). Many regrets would be passed if this guy was never questioned further and his DNA sample taken.

for TBR,

It does sound like his situation warrented more investigation; it is a shame that the media had to blow it all out of proportion and give him undeserved fame.

It looks like with the CA pron charges he will be charged with something and his DNA will go in the system.

Actually authorities were made aware of Karr via e-mails he exchanged over the course of four years with Michael Tracey, a journalism professor at the University of Colorado.
