With all the questionable statements and comments that have come from John Mark Karr since he confessed to the murder of of JonBenet Ramsey, it was not that much of a surprise when the DNA results came back negative. According to reports,the “DNA sample taken from John Mark Karr is not a match with the foreign DNA found on JonBenet Ramsey’s body when she was murdered in 1996.”
Denver – Two sources have confirmed that the DNA sample taken from John Mark Karr is not a match with the foreign DNA found on JonBenet Ramsey’s body when she was murdered in 1996.
Samples of Karr’s saliva and hair were taken in Boulder, CO after his arrival on Thursday. Those samples were tested over the weekend inside the Denver Police Department’s Crime lab.
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.
After all this, the DA in Boulder, CO is not going to file charges. What a mighty expensive plane ticket to get John Karr back to Colorado for nothing. Next time the Boulder DA may want to ask the family where a potential suspect may have been before they jump the gun. It is actually amazing that it appears all the DA had was a confession. A confession for and obsessed individual that gets off on murder cases of young girl.
Karr is scheduled to be in court Monday afternoon for an advisement hearing.
Charges related to the JonBenet case are not being filed in Colorado but California may file. Boulder, CO could file different charges for Karr however.
