Posted on 08/20/2006 5:37:25 AM PDT by Rte66
For your bookmarking assistance, this is a reference list of links to the Aug 2006 or newer Free Republic threads on the topic of the JonBenet Ramsey murder case and the possible arrest of John Mark Karr as a suspect in her murder.
>>>His father, Wexford Karr, married Patricia Elaine Adcock on Aug. 21, 1958. He was 37 and she was 18, according to court documents. >>>
What source do you have for this? I didn't realize they were giving out her full name!
>>>Now, the part about Wexford being a "well-to-do General Motors" executive doesn't quite ring true with what we have heard, either. I think he would've had enough money to send JMK to college, anyway. I'll get to more later - gotta go check around on some things!>>>
He was not an executive, but made good money with rental property.
>>>You have it exactly right. John is the middle son of Wexford, middle son of his mother.>>>
Pardon me, youngest son of his mother.
I just saw this (your post 100 about the algae on the floor/boot). Is this a fact, or just another clue that was leaked that needs to be taken with a grain of salt?
Not sure if there are two or if the same is discussed twice. Haven't found the one mentioned on TV.
Why cable news pursues the JonBenet Ramsey case
While broadcast networks offer traditional journalistic fare, their cable rivals are now more like the Daily News than The New York Times.
NEW YORK "SOLVED!'' read the Daily News headline. "BREAKING NEWS" flashed the MSNBC graphic: "JonBenet Ramsey Case Solved?"
Almost a decade after a flood of media speculation about the unsolved murder of the child beauty queen essentially convicted her parents in the court of public opinion, critics say they were at it again last week.

Are you still up?
A long AJC article from 2-3 days ago
They've ruled out every other person she came in contact with that night previous to being found murdered.
I'm just saying that's one more possible source of human DNA that hasn't been ruled out.
Thanks for the ping!
Here is an article and photo of Karr at the time of his divorce. Looks like he had already begun to loose weight.
>>>A long AJC article from 2-3 days ago>>>
Thanks, I found it.
"There are so many variations on these possibilities it will make your head spin."
That's the one thing that we all can agree on. It's so nuts! I'm afraid this case will never be solved.
There is a previous Boulder DA on Fox who keeps saying that after the dust clears on Karr that the attention will focus on who leaked this to the police--Tracey. This DA can't say enought bad things about him. I've wondered about that. He made it sound like the current DA was not ready to pounce on Karr yet and this leak pretty much forced her hand.
If Karr's family can prove he couldn't have been in CO the night JBR was killed, then the case against him is over. The lack of DNA will hamper the case, but doesn't necessarily kill it. A handwriting analyst has said that he thinks Karr's handwriting matches the note that was found.
At first, I thought Karr was a celebrity seeker. Now I'm not so sure. I think he's a possibility, but I don't have a strong conviction either way. When I saw John Ramsey's nephew speaking on Fox, I personally thought he looked a lot like Karr. Very creepy. And I heard on Fox this morning that Karr has said he was at a party with his brother where John Ramsey was also in attendence. There must be some linkage there. Lots of rumors, no confirmations. But it is interesting. I hope they grab the perp. The real one.
In 1990, Access Graphics was created...One company was Advanced Products Group of Roswell, Ga.
John's resume says he can build computers from the bottom up. Where did he get this skill?
Of course, his resume also mentions giving kids a bath and reading to them. (Michael Jackson Syndrome??)
I had heard earlier that Karr's linkage to the Ramsey's was a suburb of Atlanta. I didn't know details. I also just heard that if the publicity keeps up that John Ramsey was going to leave the country. The parents always, always acted suspiciously to me. I don't think they had anything to do with her murder, but I've always wondered if they were covering up for someone they may have suspected had something to do with it. And now he's acting strangely again IMHO.
I just want to thank you for putting in the effort to consolidate all of these links. It makes it far easier to keep up.
Have you seen the video clip of Karr with long hair that Fox keeps showing....very strange...
Good morning/afternoon. Thanks for your posts and pings, Rte and stl.
His extradition hearing scheduled for 8:30 tomorrow morning? If so, does that mean we can keep normal sleeping hours tonight...lol?
I prefer a hamberger over roast duck.
No, haven't seen that. What year?
Just saw it. The baby looks to be just a few months old.
I am watching FNC --- what have I missed?
I don't know the year but he's holding one of his sons who is a toddler....must be when they still lived in Ga...
I still can't shake off the feeling that the Ramsey's know more than they've said -- though I don't think they did it.
But what was the linkage *before* the murde?. He seems to be almost stalking the Ramseys *after* the murder but that's no proof he committed the crime - only that he's trying to involve himself after the fact.
The Ramseys moved to Colorado in 1991 when Jon Benet would have been no more than an infant. I can't imagine how even the twisted mind of John Karr could have "fallen in love" with JBR at that age in whatever context he means it.
So where did he get this obsession for JBR from which to inspire travel from Alabama to Boulder at Christmas, 1996 if he, indeed, committed the crime? It could only be through the child pageant scene or if her images were already circulating in the pedophile world. And why would he travel to Colorado without some assurance that he was going to see her?
IMO, this is the really weak link to his whole "confession". As yet, there's no evidence he was there and no motivation to travel 1,000 miles to see a little girl he could not have known personally.
JMO If he didn't do it, he has been in contact with the person who did. He may simple be the key that unlocks the door. As I said the other evening. He then becomes a hero, writes the last chapter of his book from that view point and becomes a millionare.........
Good questions. Do you two any any insights?
>>>Good questions. Do you two any any insights?>>>
I don't know of any connections other just geographical.
I don't think the photo is from the time when he was divorce because the source of the photo is Royal Thailand Police. This photo was probably taken right after they picked him up last week.
I don't know. I just heard somewhere that there was such a linkage. I've watched a fair amount of TV and radio about this, so I don't remember where I heard that. There's so many rumors flying out there that I don't even know it's true. But I did hear it. And it raised a red flag for me.
I've wondered too if Karr had an obsession for these child beauty pageants. My question all along has been how could he have known about this child. So I've listened to everything that has been on about how this could have happened.
I don't think they did it either. But they have acted as though they know more than they've admitted. The only motive I can think of is to protect someone else they loved as much as JonBenet.
When Ramsey created Access Graphics (1989), it was a merger of 3 companies. One of them, was Advanced Products Group of Roswell, Georgia.
On December 20, 1996, there was a big employee party at the Hotel Boulderado in Colorado. A dixieland jazz band made the rounds.
There is an article in THE DAILY CAMERA dated Dec, 21, 1996 by Tom Locke. The article almost looks like the background or a summary of the ransom note.
Was Sandrock from the Daily Camera?
Was Karr flown in as a babysitter for some old southern business folks?....or with the band?? Did the glitz tick him off? Did Ramsey become a target almost sporadically?...A "fat cat" with southern ties.
geographical. And both Ramsey and Karr had an interest in computer technology.
Could Patsy's sister who lives in Roswell put pics of JBR in the local paper everytime she won a beauty contest?
Huh? What do you mean by that?
>>>geographical. And both Ramsey and Karr had an interest in computer technology.>>>
I think John's interest was purely pedophelic in nature though.
Did she and would the paper print it? Some of the local rags are desperate for anything they can publish. I doubt it would have made a dent in the AJC *unless* the pageant was local or if AJC was still in social contact with the Ramseys from their time in Atlanta.
The AJC is stored on microfilm so it can be researched. I don't know if they offer online archives but it would be interesting to do a word search on "JonBenet" *prior* to 12/25/96 to see if she is ever mentioned.
"A billion bucks. That's enough to make anybody celebrate."
There is a picture of John Ramsey leaning on a windowsill.
Then it mentions the dixieland band (Southern connection) and several connections and computer companies including Sun Microsystems in Calif..
There's just a lot in the article that tells a lot about John Ramsey......enough to write a note that says "I know a lot about you".
I would like to read over at Jamison but she charges to post...so forget her.....I was on some interesting chats with her group though, in the past...
I only ask because our local paper does it every Wed in the local section...people submit pics and stories about their relatives from all over the country....I just thought maybe Patsy's family did the same..
I just saw the video of him with very long hair...the long hair was mainly in the back...sides and top were cut more masculine-like. He was singing and playing a guitar in the one I saw. I think there was also one of him where he was kind of clowning around. The one with the singing and guitar...maybe the other one, too, don't know...I believe they said the year was 1987.
John Ramsey's life would never be the same.
The bad part is: I'm now starting to think Karr is a serial killer.
I just saw that too....they said it was his wedding video in 87?......there's another video they are showing where his wife is folding clothes and he has a baby in his arms...with the same long hair.
