No DNA match for Karr – no charges will be filed

Via 9News:

KUSA – 9NEWS has confirmed from two sources that the DNA taken from John Mark Karr does not match the DNA samples taken from the crime scene in the JonBenet Ramsey murder case.

9NEWS has also confirmed from different sources that no charges will be filed against Karr in connection with the Ramsey case by the Boulder County District Attorney’s office.

Samples of Karr’s saliva and hair were taken in Boulder after his arrival on Thursday. Those samples were tested over the weekend inside the Denver Police Department’s Crime lab.

9NEWS has confirmed that Karr’s DNA is ruled out as the foreign DNA left on JonBenet Ramsey’s body when she was murdered in December 1996.

JonBenet was covered in a blanket when her body was found. Foreign hair fibers were found on that blanket and they did not match any of the Ramsey family or approximately 100 people that were tested.

Wouldn’t it be nice if they could lock him up for wasting valuable law enforcement time on his bogus as hell confession? Can we also haul the MSM up on charges stemming from them showing his frightening mug on TV and in the print/I’net media 24-7?

Update I: John Mark Karr released

Update II 10:57 PM: Via The Smoking Gun:

In a recorded July 29 phone conversation with Tracey, Karr noted that he wanted Johnny Depp to portray him in a movie to be based on a manuscript Karr had authored. During that chat, Karr also noted that he was skilled at mimicry and was especially proud of his ability “to impersonate Katherine Hepburn.”

    He still has other charges awaiting him, doesn’t he?

    I trust he’ll be billed for the airline trip, too! The jackass!

    You can be prosecuted in most places for filing a false police report; but this guy was voluntarily extradited from Thailand. There’s no “Son of Sam” type law that I know of that prevents someone from profiting from a crime that they DIDN’T commit, so this guy can write a book, and maybe get sued by the REAL KILLER!

    “……and maybe get sued by the REAL KILLER!” Or get killed by the real sewer.

    - All together now: TOLDJAH SOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    - The good news may be Cal will drop him in thr greybrick hotel on the “other” charges, and at the same time this may just open up a fresh effort in the investigation. Get a hard nosed DA that John can’t intimidate, or buy off, and we might get somewhere. The bad news is that watching the Boulder officials buy this scumbags “fairy tale” doesn’t reflect a lot of hope those guys could find a stray cat, much less a killer.

    - Bang **==

    I still think he was in trouble in Thailand. This was just the best way out. I think we should send him back. – Lorica

    Exactly Lorica! I imagine the ACLU hasn’t sued the Thailand government about it’s prisoner treatment, so let him go back there and spend a few years in a Bangkok prison.

    I hear you can do very well in a Thailand prison, all it takes is the right……opening. :d
