I was watching the TV the other day, and the anchor questioned how a man could travel around south-east Asia for a couple years without steady employment.

"Is he independently wealthy?" asked the anchor.

"That is not clear," said the reporter.

I was thinking to myself, "umm, don't you people know that 1000s of backpackers do the same thing every year." I wonder how much these people think it costs to travel around SEA?

Good point Greg. That is why he was a teacher. Many schools don't check credentials all that carefully and hire anyone who can speak decent English.

What is coming out today in the US is that his story is not adding up. Family & friends saw him in Alabama the day of JonBenet's murder. It maybe a false confession. why? I don't know and I'm not sure anyone else does either. The DNA found at the scene will prove he is the guy or exonerate him. He is wanted in Calif. for another charge and fleeing the jurisdiction. He will be sent back to the US for those charges.

John Mark Karr may be a pedophile, but it is not clear he is a killer. Not yet anyway.

Well, if you believe the news today, perhaps to sip champagne and eat prawns sitting in a free business class seat between Thailand and Los Angeles.

Greg,
I did see John Mark Karr sitting in business class on his way to the US. However, I doubt his would risk life imprisonment for some food and the bubbly. What I think is going on; he is a whack job that wants to be famous. Same as Mark Chapman, nut case that killed John Lennon in order to be noticed. This is assuming he is making a false confession. If the DNA or handwriting places him at the crime scene, then he is confessing to cleanse his soul, and because he is a whack job that wants publicity!
