Something was fishy--posted by Tony Garcia on 8/22/2006
If you did not hear it on the air Sunday let me restate it. Something was not right about the John Mark Karr arrest last week. He was under investigation for the JonBenet Ramsey murder since before Patsy Ramsey died this past June. Why would someone who seemed to have no connection until his confession and arrest last week be under investigation for so long? Something was missing in the whole story.
Then this morning I found an answer that begins to make sense.
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.This sheds some light now on why this guy was being watched.
Wendy Hutchens of Roseville, Calif., told the Santa Rosa Press Democrat and KRON-TV in San Francisco that she contacted Sonoma County authorities five years ago after Karr told her that he met JonBenet at the family's Christmas party, then sneaked back into the house that night through a downstairs storm window.
Mrs. Hutchens said she alerted the Sonoma County Sheriff's Department and recorded her conversations with Karr as evidence. Authorities later searched Karr's Petaluma home and found enough evidence to charge Karr with five counts of child-pornography possession. He served six months in jail before leaving the United States.
