Karr hid in the shadows, harboring his profound remorse while the Ramsey family languished in the court of public opinion for ten years. During this time, he traveled extensively between the U.S. and Asia for many years before taking up residence in Malaysia, and later Thailand. At the time of his arrest, Karr claimed he was in Bangkok looking for a teaching position. Karr lost his teaching licensure in 2002.
U.S. officials are wondering how he paid for all his adventures in Asia, as he lacked a steady employment history. Authorities recently busted a number of very profitable Asian prostitution rings up and down the eastern seaboard, so I suspect they won’t have to scratch their heads in confusion for very long.
Mr. Karr should thank whatever god he believes in that we caught him before he started molesting little girls by accident in Bangkok.
Thailand would deliver more suitable justice than we ever could.
According to the Associated Press and other news sources, DNA taken from Mr. Karr's cheek swab did NOT match the foreign DNA found at the scene. The Denver crime lab cannot place him at the scene at this time. Other available evidence cannot prove or disprove Karr's claim that he murdered Miss Ramsey. The case against Mr. Karr has been dropped.
Currently, Karr awaits extradition to California, where he will answer to charges of child pornography.
