"I was with JonBenet when she died."
---John Mark Carr
A former teacher named John Mark Karr has been arrested at his apartment in Bangkok, Thailand in connection with the JonBenet Ramsey murder. The authorities have not revealed what Karr is charged with, if anything. Karr told television reporters, "I was with JonBenet when she died." He said that her death was "an accident."

The FBI is bringing him back to the U.S. for further investigation.

According to media reports, the suspect was arrested by an arm of the Department of Homeland Security called ICE, "the second largest federal law enforcement contributor to the Joint Terrorism Task Force."

The ICE site links to a pdf document about this arrest and has posted this short introduction to their pdf statement:
