And Greta Van Susternerneren Wept

So big surprise here . . . John Mark Karr's DNA did not match. I guess it's back to Aruba for Greta.

And I suppose the only mystery left in the JBR case is why Boulder's DA didn't just wait until the tests came back before they spent all that money - only to find out what everybody with a brain and two ears already knew.

Can we give this creep the death penalty for making us relive all the Jon Benet hype all over again?

Seems she was out to "Save The Children". Now who amongst us has not had a pervert teacher?

Methinks she was hoping for the cushy 'on location' trial assignment in Boulder just in time for that 30 inches of fresh powder. Heck, she and Nancy Grace could rent a condo.

Well said.

Methinks it be a year for public suicide by D.A.'s. First that Yahoo at Duke, and now this bumpkin.

Whatever happened to just plain old law and order?

Well, just look at that weirdo. He is definitely guilty of soemthing.

Ship him back to Northern California and he can serve his sentence there while we dig up some other shit that will stick.

"Well, just look at that weirdo. He is definitely guilty of soemthing."

Shit Shelly, that's what the cops always say.

Then again, in my life I've crossed paths with a handful of fellows who go abroad to teach. I wouldn't let one of them out of my sight in any circumstance.

Yep. And, they are always right. Their best tool is JDLQR. The courts disapprove, but they use it anyway.

Me, I'm for protecting my ass. Profile aways, guys.

I think you might be a touch unfair to the DA and police, annika. It was a false lead--obviously false, in hindsight--but they had to "honor the threat" as it were.

Besides his (false) confession, I believe it was reported he had some information about the murder that wasn't widely known. If I'm right, that plus a confession makes him a credible suspect and his story should be investigated. It wasn't until further investigation that his story fell apart, and he was not charged with the crime.

Taking a wider view, the system worked the way it's supposed to. At least, to my layman's mind it did.
