    PLANT CITY - Roger Karr Jr.’s first wheels were a Chevy El Camino. In fact, he’s driven nothing but Chevys ever since. So it seemed only fitting that he named his first-born son after his favorite brand of car, with the name of his favorite NASCAR driver — Dale Earnhardt Jr. — thrown in for good measure. Chevy Dale Karr arrived at Brandon Regional Hospital on June 13. His father had been mulling over names for months, ever since a sonogram confirmed the baby was a boy. “I wanted something interesting,” the young father of two said of the moniker....

    In this True Crime post some older cases get new attention. We've got some new insight into the logic of Mary Winkler's jurors. Not that the logic makes sense. Also, John Mark Karr, heh, the Jonbenet nut arrested. Also, an 11 yr old drinks and drives, a child stabs her 8 yr old brother and another horrific gang rape.

    ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- A former suspect in the killing of JonBenet Ramsey was arrested early Saturday in suburban Atlanta, Georgia, after a 911 call of domestic violence, police said. John Mark Karr, 42, is charged with battery and obstruction of a 911 call, Lt. Keith Zgonc of the Sandy Springs police said. Karr was arrested in Bangkok, Thailand, last year in connection with the 1996 slaying of the 6-year-old beauty queen. JonBenet's beaten and strangled body was found December 26, 1996, in the basement of her parents' home in Boulder, Colorado. Karr was taken to Colorado, but his DNA...

    The holiday season arrives but True Crime continues. You will never believe the story of this couple and a motel room. Also, bodies found in Atlantic City drainage ditch. Lots of drownings, but were they accidents? Covering pervert polygamist Warren Jeffs and wondering how his trial might affect a major upcoming presidential candidate. A Clinton neighbor's wife dies under strange circumstances and this fellow argues that because the deer was dead when he made love to it that he is not technically guilty of animal cruelty.

    Time for a few TV Tidbits. First, an old-age rant about those American Music Awards. If this is the best in music America has to offer I must thank the Lord I was born in the 50's. Next, a summary of that "48 Hours" Tribute to John and Patsy Ramsey. Indeed, the stupidity to defend these killing parents continues and I am amazed at those who continue to carry John Ramsey's water. Some startling revelations on that pervert Geek John Mark Karr and the silly reason they thought he killed Jonbenet. Some serious lies were spread about this guy.

    Time for some True Crime. We have a woman who used her baby as a weapon, a Duke update, some comments about Jonathan Edington who killed his neighbor for allegedly molesting his toddler. Then there's the murdering soldier, Martinez, and he's facing life. Oh and the lovely John Karr, ersatz murderer of Jonbenet Ramsey, is grabbing his fifteen minutes before he molests again. Some bodies are being exhumed for that murder of the Nevada Controller. He killed her; did he also kill her husband? Finally, that Vermont missing coed found. A creep lent her his cell phone then murdered her.

    San Francisco police say they stopped a limo carrying John Karr after the one-time JonBenet Ramsey suspect was spotted wandering near a school and peering in a window! The AP reported this weekend: Police say the received a call from the Convent of the Sacred Heart school, where Karr worked briefly as a teacher's aide in 2000. School employees told police the limo carrying Karr and two producers for ABC's "Good Morning America," stopped near the school. Karr got out, strolled the sidewalk and approached the school's door. Police say no laws were broken, but they did take the names...

    SANTA ROSA -- A Sonoma County judge handling the five-year-old child pornography case against suspect John Mark Karr threatened today to dismiss the charges and lashed into prosecutors for not telling her that key evidence -- a computer and hard drive containing sexually explicit images -- had been lost. Superior Court Judge Cerena Wong said she will consider a motion from Karr's attorney, Robert Amparan, to dismiss the 2001 case on Wednesday, a move that if approved would set Karr free without his having to register as a sex offender in California. Wong also will consider whether to unseal evidence...

    SANTA ROSA, Calif. - Efforts to prosecute one-time JonBenet Ramsey murder suspect John Mark Karr on child pornography charges should not be jeopardized even though his computer that allegedly contained the images was lost, Sonoma County authorities said Wednesday. Authorities seized the computer from Karr's home in 2001 and copied the entire hard drive onto paper, including the five illicit images, said Sheriff's Department Lt. Dave Edmonds. He said authorities looked for the computer for the past two weeks, but have had no luck. "We did an exhaustive search. We have probably hundreds of thousands of evidence items and we're...

The sheriff's office said it incurred $6,070 in costs, including $3,255 for Karr's flight on a state plane from Los Angeles to Jefferson County Airport in Colorado, sheriff's officials said Friday. Overtime wages of $2,468 and...

    Embarrassing Coverage Chum in the water sets off media feeding frenzy. By Jonah Goldberg Now is the time to ask: What do John Mark Karr and Joseph Wilson have in common? Wilson is no more a would-be pedophile than Karr is a former diplomat. But they are both attention-seeking liars who deliberately helped launch criminal investigations that should never have gone as far as they did. Moreover, they launched media feeding frenzies that wasted everybody’s time. It’s this second point that interests me more than the first. Ever since it was reported that Karr wasn’t the right guy, the media...

    About ten years ago, while writing a book on crime, I attended a district attorneys' convention in Las Vegas. I wasn't supposed to be there -- they don't like the press -- but I managed to sneak into the back of the hotel ballroom. After the first speech I struck up a conversation with the assistant district attorney sitting next to me. He was a young black man, neatly dressed, with a trim mustache. "What's the biggest thing you've learned as an ADA?" I asked him. He twirled his mustache for a moment, reflected and said, "People are capable of...

    Sonoma County authorities will seek to have John Mark Karr extradited to California to face child pornography charges on hold since he failed to appear for a court hearing five years ago. District Attorney Stephan Passalacqua said the decision was made Monday after Colorado authorities dropped their case against Karr in the JonBenet Ramsey killing. Karr, a one-time substitute teacher in Petaluma area schools, is wanted on a no-bail warrant issued by a Sonoma County judge after he failed to appear at a December 2001 court hearing in a misdemeanor child pornography case. Sheriff's detectives said they found five photos...

    BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Boulder County District Attorney Mary Lacy defended her decision to bring John Mark Karr back from Thailand to be investigated in the 1996 slaying of JonBenet Ramsey. "The decisions were mine," Lacy said, one day after she dropped the case against the 41-year-old schoolteacher. "I should be held accountable." Just as she began taking questions, a fire alarm disrupted the news conference, but it resumed a few minutes later. JonBenet's father found the little girl's body in the basement of their Boulder home on the day after Christmas 1996. For years, suspicion has focused on either...

    UPDATE: For completists--and masochists--click here to download the 98-page Karr arrest warrant affidavit. In a recorded July 29 phone conversation with Tracey, Karr noted that he wanted Johnny Depp to portray him in a movie to be based on a manuscript Karr had authored. During that chat, Karr also noted that he was skilled at mimicry and was especially proud of his ability "to impersonate Katherine Hepburn."
