    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....

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

Moreover, they launched media feeding frenzies that wasted everybody’s time. It’s this second point that interests me more than the first.

Owens’ statement came shortly after news reports that suspect John Mark Karr’s DNA didn’t match that found on slain JonBenet Ramsey. "Unfortunately, the hysterics surrounding John Mark Karr served only to distract Boulder officials from doing their job which should be solving the murder of JonBenet Ramsey," Owens said. "I find it incredible that Boulder authorities wasted thousands of taxpayer dollars to bring Karr to Colorado given such a lack of evidence."...

Denver's KUSA cited two unnamed sources for the report, which if confirmed would call into question Karr's claim to have committed the 1996 murder of the young beauty queen. US authorities have yet to comment on the television report. Karr, 41, was arrested in Thailand on August 16 on a California warrant over charges of possessing child pornography.

More than 200 people took credit for the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh's baby son in 1932. Serial killer Henry Lee Lucas claimed he killed hundreds in the 1970s. Lucas was convicted of 11 murders, and police discredited much of what he claimed from his prison cell, where he died in 2001.

In 2004, Tracey, a British expatriate journalism professor and documentarian, produced a film about the Ramsey murder that aired on British television but not in the United States. By then, however,...

    Nine gay characters are depicted in network-TV series scheduled for the 2006–2007 season, a decrease from last year's 10, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) said Monday. Out of 679 series lead or supporting characters on the six major broadcast networks in the new season, roughly 1.3 percent are gay, lesbian or bisexual, according to the group's annual study. The figure last year was 1.4 percent. GLAAD analyzed the 95 prime-time comedies and dramas announced by ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, CW and MyNetworkTV. While the year-to-year numbers are relatively consistent, the prominence of the roles has been diminished,...

    At the APA Conference in New Orleans — where APA President Koocher commented about the ethicality of sexual reorientation therapy — Clinton Anderson, director of the APA Office of Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Concerns, offered further commentary.* Mr. Anderson said he does not dispute that some people leave homosexuality. "I don't think that anyone disagrees with the idea that people can change, because we know that straight people become gay and lesbian — so it seems totally reasonable that some gay and lesbian people would become straight. The issue is not whether sexual orientation changes...the issue is whether therapy changes...

    Day 1996 photo that they believe indicates Karr was in Atlanta when the 6-year-old girl was killed in Colorado. Gary Harris, an attorney for Karr's father, Wexford Karr, said Tuesday that the photo is of John Mark Karr's three children, along with a newborn nephew. While John Mark Karr is not actually in the photo, family members "have no recollection of him missing a Christmas until the last five years," Harris said. "They know that if his children were there, he would have been there," the attorney said. "They would have remembered it if they all had shown up and...

    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...

    BOULDER, Colo. -- It was shocking when authorities arrested a suspect last week in the JonBenet Ramsey killing, but in some ways, it's more surprising that it didn't happen years ago. John Mark Karr, the 41-year-old schoolteacher who has said he was with JonBenet when she died in 1996, tangled with California authorities five years ago after telling an acquaintance that he broke into the Ramsey house the night of the slaying.

    Inside the mind of John Mark Karr: Don't worry, I won't take you all the way inside my mind - I have to save something for my Barbara Walters interview! But I will tell you three things. I am the logical culmination - or at least predictable result - of three cultural trends visible during my 41 years on this Earth: First, baby-boomer hedonism. Second, rights-based legal proceduralism. And third, the media's enabling of what I regard as "authentic" behavior.

    Physician tells of Karr's sex-change plan By Jeremy P. Meyer Denver Post Staff Writer Bangkok, Thailand - A doctor told The Denver Post today he was treating John Mark Karr with hair removal in advance of sex-change surgery. Also, today, an extradition hearing was scheduled for Tuesday morning, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said. It was not known whether Karr, the suspect in the JonBenét Ramsey murder case, had retained a lawyer. Karr was arrested late Sunday at a Los Angeles airport on a warrant out of Boulder County, after he was escorted out of Bangkok. He's being...

    Since the JonBenet Ramsey case burst back into the spotlight, much of the misinformation fed to the public has emerged again. Here's a little refresher course on what we know is real: The 93-page ruling by a U.S. district judge in a 2003 civil suit was the first real judicial analysis of evidence found at the scene. Judge Julie Carnes examined evidence gathered by police, pointed out shortcomings in the investigation and came to the conclusion that it was more likely that an intruder killed JonBenet than Patsy Ramsey. Here's the evidence we know: - An autopsy report noted injury...

    Bangkok, Thailand - A doctor told The Denver Post today he was treating John Mark Karr with hair removal in advance of sex-change surgery. Dr. Setthakarn Attakonpan of Siam Swan Cosmetic Clinic in Bangkok said the suspect in the JonBenét Ramsey murder case first came to him March 9 for hair removal on his face, neck and cheeks. "The reason he wanted to do hair removal was because he wanted to do a sex change," Attakonpan told The Post. "He told me he was in the process of medical treatment for cutting off his testicles." Karr completed four treatments at...
