ATLANTA, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- The mother of a man who claims to have killed JonBenet Ramsey tried to kill him when he was very young, a friend of the family said in Georgia.
George McCrary, who says he has known Wexford Karr, father of suspect John Karr, for 40 years, said the suspect's mother, Patricia Elaine Adcock, "made a big round donut (of kindling) and put him in the middle of it" when he was a baby, ABC News reported Tuesday.
"She just boxed the little baby in and tried to light it," McCrary said, but John's older brother Michael "came running in just before she got the flame to the flammable material."
Adcock was committed to a mental institution and the marriage broke up. She died in 2000.

No, it says 'when John was a baby.'
The freak show continues.
>>>Story contradicts widely reported story that mother died when he was 12.>>>
This story is incorrect in the date she died. He is going by an obit of someone named Patricia Karr (not by McCrary), it would not have been put in the paper that way. She died in the 1980 range.
And I thought the Ramsey family was weird. This has to one of the most bizarre murders in US history.
I am still not convinced that he killed her.
If his DNA matches the unknown DNA found at the crime scene, he did it.
Yup. I overheard on FOX the reporter talking about this guy's meals on the plane. Who gives a damn? I'm curious as to how many thousands of hours of air time this story has garnered.
Follow the link. It's direct from a recent UPI release, not a newspaper (doesn't mean it's correct).
Since it was just release on the UPI website, I don't know if it appeared in any newspaper at the time I posted.
Talk about tabloid media.
One of the stations this morning said that earlier investigators had purchased and tested identical underwear - and that "untouched" package also had unknown DNA material on it, apparently from the manufacture or handling process.
Now, of course you're correct if the tests give a match...but I personally don't think that's gonna happen
Bread and circuses. Keep the population dumbed down.
"If his DNA matches the unknown DNA found at the crime scene, he did it."
Not necessarily. It would show he was there but not that he killed her. Admittedly, a good start, but they will still have a lot of work to do to establish guilt. With his mental background and the way the case is being outlined, there is going to be a problem getting past reasonable doubt. He hasn't even been charged yet and already he has an alibi, possible mental health history and inconsistencies in the confession.
Thought went through my mind too...
How about banishing Karr/Ramsey/Holloway threads to the FR smoky back room?
Eerie. Like Dahmer's dad: "I thought something might be wrong when he was setting kittens on fire."
