JonBenet Mystery Is Now Even Deeper

A second-grade teacher has been arrested in relation to the murder of JonBenet Ramsey. He was arrested in Bangkok, where he was being held on an unrelated sex charge, after what authorities described as a complex investigation.

This actually makes the case more mysterious. The suspect, John Karr, knew the Ramsey's when the Ramseys lived in Atlanta, prior to their move to Colorado. [CORRECTION: may have known; I nonetheless think it suspicious the parties have a geographical connection.] This connection illuminates some of the problems in the Ramsey's story, in particular the strange ransom note and the father's bizarre discovery of the child's body. Far from exonerating the Ramseys, it only adds to suspicions about their involvement that they were acquainted with the man suspected of killing JonBenet.
