Man Confesses to Killin JonBenet Ramsey



Yesterday, a man was arrested in Thailand on sex charges unrelated to the JonBenet Ramsey case. This morning the man, John Mark Karr, has confessed to murdering her and claims it was an accident. He also told investigators that he was in love with her.

"I was with JonBenet when she died," suspect John Mark Karr, 41, told reporters in Bangkok. "I loved JonBenet, and she died accidentally."

Asked by a reporter if he was an innocent man, Karr replied, "No."

Karr's arrest Wednesday came nearly a decade after the 6-year-old girl's body was found in the basement of her Boulder, Colorado, home -- setting off a media sensation.

The arrest also came less than two months after JonBenet's mother, Patsy Ramsey, died of cancer at 49.

Karr, a former teacher, was arrested at his apartment in Bangkok.

According to colleagues at the Thai detention center where Karr was questioned, the suspect asked police what charges he was facing. When they replied first-degree murder, he said: "No, it's second-degree -- it wasn't intentional," said Lt. Gen. Suwat Thamrongrisakul, chief of Thai immigration. (Watch authorities describe what Karr said -- 14:54)

Karr will be extradited to Boulder within the next week and has been charged with murder, kidnapping and sexual assault on a child, said Ann Hurst, a Department of Homeland Security attache at the U.S. Embassy in Bangkok.

Karr's ex-wife, Lisa, says she does not believe he had anything to do with JonBenet's death since he was with her at the time of the murder. Karr is said to believe to have lived near the Ramsey's in Georgia.

I am curious to see how the ransom letter and all of that plays a part in this. I'm sure in the next few hours and days a lot of shit is going to come to light.
