I shouldn’t even defoul this blog with such news, but here ya go:
In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, John Mark Karr said that he contacted JonBenet’s mother, Patsy, before she died of cancer in June to express his remorse for the killing.
“I conveyed to her many things, among them that I am so very sorry for what happened to JonBenet,” Karr said as U.S. and Thai authorities escorted him from his Bangkok hotel, where he spent over an hour packing his belongings.
Karr said it was his understanding that Patsy Ramsey read letters that he sent to her. He said JonBenet’s death was “an accident.”
“It’s very important for me that everyone knows that I love her very much and that her death was unintentional,” said Karr, who sweated and stuttered occasionally as he spoke in a quiet voice.
Karr, 41, was arrested Wednesday, halfway around the world from Boulder, Colo., where JonBenet’s body was found beaten and strangled in her parent’s basement on Dec. 26, 1996.
This guy sounds like a sick fucker. He says he loved her — is that why he drugged, raped and murdered her?
Well, at least this fucking psychopath was finally caught. I can only imagine what the pedophile was doing in Bangkok. Let’s hope he didn’t “love” any children over there, but that seems a little unlikely.
Does this mean the parents are not guilty?
Well, no. They turned their daughter into a prepubescent pinup, which is what attracted this psycho in the first place. While I don’t think they should be jailed, I think they have to look at their own motivations for the whole beauty pageant illusion they draped her in. How much of it was a selfish desire to have the cutest daughter in the world? I’m sure JonBenet loved the attention, but parents are supposed to look out for their kids, not parade them around like a hunk of meat before the lecherous eyes of a million perverts.
Oh, and they should be chained upside-down in a hideous dungeon for naming their daughter “JonBenet.” I mean c’mon! Could you be any more pretentious?! Ack!!
Ultimately, though, the crime rests on the shoulders of John Mark Karr. What a fucking tragedy.
UPDATE: Karr was probably a patsy. RigInt has blown this wide open.
