People vs. Karr Case Vacated!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
from the office of Boulder County District Attorney Mary T. Lacy:

"Monday, August 28, 2006


People vs. Karr Case Vacated


The hearing scheduled for today in the case of the People vs. John Mark Karr has been vacated. The People filed a Motion to Quash the Arrest Warrant for John Mark Karr this afternoon. That motion has been granted by Chief Judge Bailin.

District Attorney Mary Lacy made the following statement:

As contemplated at the time of the initial arrest and subsequent press conference, my office has spent the past week conducting follow-up interviews and forensic testing to establish whether John Mark Karr was present in Boulder on December 25-26, 1996.

The DNA associated with the victim in this case does not match John Mark Karr. The family of Mr. Karr cooperated by providing circumstantial evidence that Mr. Karr spent Christmas with his family in Atlanta, Georgia.

We understand that there is great public and/or media interest in the process we followed to arrest John Mark Karr in Thailand. We are making a full set of the emails and a copy of the taped telephone calls [Daily Camera audio files from July 15, 2006] as well as affidavits [ here and duplicated here] for search and arrest available to the designated representative of the media consortium this afternoon. We will also make available the face sheet of a manuscript entitled "Daxis" which Mr. Karr has indicated is under copyright protection. We will not oppose motions to seek the release of that one hundred and fifty three page document in court.

As I said last week, our role in the investigation of JonBenet Ramsey’s murder has been to follow up on all legitimate leads that we have received from law enforcement and concerned citizens. This case is not closed, and we will continue to investigate leads and pursue justice.

Regarding the status of John Mark Karr, a safety plan has been established. We cannot comment further on this issue.


The motion and order will be posted at:
www.courts.state.co.us/exec/media/boulder/pressindex.htm

The District Attorney's Office is in the process of posting additional information about this investigation. A link identifying the site location for this information will be posted as soon as it is available at:

www.co.boulder.co.us/da/pr/index.htm

A media briefing will be held in the Jury Assembly Room, Justice Center, Tuesday, August 29, 2006, at 10:00 a.m. A panel from the Boulder District Attorney’s Office, including Mary Lacy, Pete Maguire, Bill Nagel, and Tom Bennett, will be available to answer questions from up to 21 members of the media, as identified from the media consortium meeting on Aug. 18..."

A Westword special report called "Anatomy of a Karr Wreck" has e-mails and audio files released by the DA's office.

Yawn...This is a bunch of B.S. I like my theory better.

So it's not home sweet home!
