Former JonBenet Ramsey murder suspect John Mark Karr sends new e-mail indicating he has targeted other girls, and will kill again.
A Colorado Springs private investigator who has worked on the JonBenet Ramsey case for almost a decade says he’s asking the district attorney and police to take another look at a one-time suspect who he thinks could be a threat to other girls.
Ollie Gray, who initially was hired by the Ramseys and has worked independently on the case for years alongside retired Colorado Springs homicide detective Lou Smit, said Saturday that he believes John Mark Karr has sent a new e-mail indicating he has targeted other girls, that he has killed and will kill again.
Karr, 43, was arrested in Bangkok, Thailand, on Aug. 15, 2006, after he implicated himself in JonBenet’s death.
Karr was released about two weeks later after Boulder County District Attorney Mary Lacy announced that his DNA didn’t match evidence from the crime scene.
But Gray said he received an e-mail Friday — which marked 12 years since JonBenet’s body was found in the basement of her family’s University Hill home — that he believes was originally sent from Karr to an acquaintance that tells of his lurid plans.
“I will kill again,” an excerpt from the message states. “It will not atone for her death but it will honor it.”
The message, which Gray said he forwarded to the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office and the Boulder Police Department, was signed by the pseudonym “Daxis.”
Police have said Karr used the name in a series of e-mails that led to his arrest two years ago.
Gray declined to say who originally received the e-mail this week.
He said the message should at least prompt investigators to take a closer look at Karr as a potential future threat and, at most, implicate Karr again in the Ramsey murder. He said authorities failed to investigate all the evidence before exonerating Karr.
Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner said Saturday that he wasn’t aware of the e-mail.
“He’s certainly not a suspect in our case,” Beckner said about Karr. “He’s been cleared from that.”
Beckner said police investigators have proven that Karr was not in Boulder the day JonBenet was killed, and there’s “not a shred of evidence” he was involved.
In September, Karr’s father told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that his son had left the country but did not say where he’d gone.
A phone message left at the home of District Attorney Mary Lacy was not returned Saturday evening.
Stan Garnett, who will take over the DA’s Office next month, has said he plans to review everything in the Ramsey case within the first 30 days of his administration.
On Saturday, Garnett said the DA’s Office continues to receive tips relating to the Ramsey case periodically, and he thinks there’s a responsibility to follow up on each one.
“Obviously, somebody has to follow up on that kind of information,” he said.

My gut still says this was an inside type job. I feel the family was involved in some way, they might ot have actually killed her but I think they assisted whoever did.
Again this is just a gut feeling, and I dont know everything about this case.

Sadly, the whole case was so fucked up from the git-go that there's no way to know. Yeah, it reeks of inside job. And I think the decision by the prosecutors to close the case was as much political as practical or professional. Of course, that can be said about lots of this case...

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
