BANGKOK, Thailand - Thai police said Thursday that a 41-year-old American man has admitted to the killing a decade ago of 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey in the United States.
Lt. Gen. Suwat Tumrongsiskul, head of Thailand's immigration police, told The Associated Press that John Mark Karr confessed to the killing after his arrest Wednesday at a downtown Bangkok apartment.
"He told police while under arrest that he did kill the girl but so far he has not pleaded guilty in writing. This is needed as official evidence," Suwat said.

CNN has a news conference on LIVE right now...
I'll wait for something from Fox.
I get the News Alerts from PMSNBC though. It being a slow night I thought I'd post it.
If he did it, I would like to know the reason for that ransom note. What was the purpose of that? That really never made much sense to me. Did he kidnap her, write and leave the note, then kill and return her to the basement, or did he try to make it look like a kidnapping gone wrong?
They think he is linked to another case in Santa Rosa CA (no dates given)
I confess to believing the parents did it. :(
Watching on MSNBC too.
The dude is real creepy and nerdy looking. (they showed him earlier and he is kinda a small guy, real thin, and looks like he has female breasts. (no kidding)
I'd say they have the right perp. Thank God they caught him!
Karr is claiming the killing Jon Benet was an accident.
Karr has been out of the USA for several years now and has not returned during those several years.
I was never really sure about that. I do think that they were *really, really* weird.
Kerr has been suspect for quite some time. (it sounds like they were having problems trying to locate him since he was not in the USA) - They suspected he was in Thailand for a few months and have been working with Thailand authorities for about 2 months.
Check out post #13.
Kerr told officials that he and JonBenet fell in love with each other .. that it was an accident
He may not have originally planned a murder and the note could have been some form of cover for his crime maybe.
He could have been crazy and needed no reasons.
I mean .. he says he killed her by accident
