WOW! Thank you!
JonBonet Ramsey ping
Heh heh, never *was* an issue with me.
Note to everybody: The links are posted in backwards chronological order - newest at top, oldest at bottom.
Any addenda will also be listed that way.
Can you believe I actually heard a commentator suggest that the CIA is behind the Karr story to get the Lebanon/Israel story off the front pages of the newspapers.
Yes, I noticed! You're the best!
Karr is seated in a window seat in the last row of the airplane.
Fearless Prediction Time:
1) This guy had nothing to do with it.
2) This guy will be convicted anyway.
If I were on the jury, I would throw this guy away for a hundred years for aggrevated creepiness alone!
Thanks, I needed to know that! FWIW, he looks kinda normal today. *What a difference a jail stay makes, just a 100 little hours ...*
Did anyone here (besides me) happen to see the JBR report on "The Investigators" on Court TV last night? Private investigators have identified promising suspects (including a fellow named Helgoth, who was mysteriously murdered the day after the Boulder DA announced that Boulder would hunt down the murderers of JBR), but the Boulder police refuse to consider them. They're still stuck on John and Patsy Ramsey.
This Helgoth fellow had a pair of boots that matched the print found in the Ransey's cellar, a fascination with little girls, and a history of breaking in to homes in the Ramsey's neighborhood.
No one has yet addressed a key obvious question:
Where was O.J. at the time?
Yeah, we know about Helgoth. And a few others. However, Patsy is deceased and the D.A. has given John a free pass, so it's not going to play in the media quite the way it has before.
I can't speak for the BPD and what they have now - but most all the LE involved are going along with the "new paradigm."
1) This guy had nothing to do with it.
2) This guy will be convicted anyway.
I think this case just gets creepier and creepier. The governor of Colorado, Roy Romer squashed a state police investigation, became the DNC chairman, then resigned and went on to be the superintendent of Los Angeles county schools. There might very well be more to this than just a simple pervert murderer and this freaky looking dupe is the cover up...
I would throw this guy away for a hundred years for aggrevated creepiness alone!
I think he has AIDS and does not want to die in a Thai prison, so he confesses to something to get out of there...
Where was O.J. at the time?
Where was Gary Condit?
"he looks kinda normal today"
I haven't seen.
Got a pic you can post?
After seeing his picture I tend to agree. Let's hang him before he breathes anymore valuable air and post his crime as a TBA.
I'm here/PING for myself!
Great resource! Thanks, Rte66!
Freeper "abb" has a pinglist for the Duke case. You can freepmail abb is you'd like to be added. I follow it because I'd like to see Nifong thrown out of office and possibly disbarred.
He would not have "died in a Thai prison" because he was only picked up after the US issued a warrant for him, and I think the warrant was about a child porn case in CALIFORNIA. The only reason, in fact, that he was arrested in Thailand at all was because they revoked his visa, declaring him an "undesirable person." The guy confessed on his own, no prompting.
Good job Rte66. Must have taken a while to compile all those threads. Didn't realize there were near that many.
No, sorry - it was TV. There will probably be one online shortly, if not already.
Has there been discussion of the CU Journalism professor (Tracey?) and his previous bogus "documentary" work on the case--including the fingering of another guy while having the e-mail correspondence with Karr? How about his book sales...is this boosting them?
Thank you! Yeah, it was starting to drive me crazy because we didn't know where we had seen something or which little factoid had been disputed and if so, where was it posted.
This won't solve it, but it helps to click on the threads instantly if you don't have it on your ping page.
I've talked about it - there might be a whole thread on it. If not, look somewhere in the Wed evening, Thu morning threads towards the bottom.
You're very welcome. Hope it helps. I do one for the London bomb plot, too - so I'm adding each day.
Now, where do you *think* he was? Hint: most of it is green, except for the sand, water and some flowers.
Truthfully, I don't think creepiness, 1st or 2nd degree, is an offense behind the Granola Curtain.
What a great idea to have this thread...thanks.
Oh great. Now Fox is calling this creep "a celebrity"--listening to a report by William Longiness. (Not sure I spelled his name right.)
I was afraid of that. Hard to imagine what's going to happen once he's here on US soil. "Vamp, vamp."
Creeps seem to become celebs in this country. Michael Jackson, Scott Peterson, the so-called "Nightstalker," Ted Bundy...nothing makes the heart (of some demented women) go pitter-patter like a creepy pervert--more so if he's a killer too.
Round up the usual suspects...
Also a dozen and a half little flags...
Unless the DNA matches, he won't be convicted. And they're already saying the DNA on JB's panties and under her nails has possibly deteriorated to the point where it's useless. His detailing of the condition of JB's body, what he did to her -- 'gruesome' is used to describe what was done to her...seems to be what convinced the DA that he might be the killer. (Presumably they left those details out of the autopsy.)
There was another break-in a few weeks earlier in a neighborhood not far from the Ramsey's. A man wearing a mask got into a child's bedroom, but the mother heard her scream and scared him away. There was speculation this same man killed JB, and then committed suicide a week or two later. But aside from that, Cyril Wecht, the forensic pathologist with years of experience, says there should've been clues left at the scene, forensics, hair, fiber, etc..(He thinks it was done by a family member or someone they knew well, unfortunately). But another pathologist says what was done to the child was so horrendous that it couldn't have been a rage killing by a parent...because she wet the bed. Patsy's answer to the cops was convincing. "I survived cancer. Do you think I'd lose control and kill my child over a wet bed?" (If the killer is dead, they'll never solve the case.)
Thanks. This is very helpful.
from MSNBC the California Case they are looking into to is the Amber Swartz (Pinole CA), she was 8 at the time.
Fox said that the Washington Post has an article that says the handwriting is a match......Haven't seen a thread with it posted....
Thank you. Bump.
Hey Rte66, Jams is actually saying she doesn't think this is the guy. Go Figure. I thought she would be jumping all over this. I sent you a link to Purg this morn, let me know if it works for you. Not overly busy there, but some old hats coming out of the woodwork.
Deteriorated? So they didn't run DNA tests at the time and put the results on file? I doubt that.
