    Since he was run out of town -- literally -- two years ago, Atlanta native John Mark Karr has undergone some big changes. The man who claimed to have killed JonBenet Ramsey has legally changed his name to Alexis Reich and is reportedly preparing to undergo gender reassignment surgery. A former student of Karr's, 19-year-old Samantha Spiegel, alleges he's doing so in order to get closer to little girls, a charge confirmed by e-mails she produced at a court hearing in San Francisco last month. A Seattle television station reported that Spiegel, who met Karr when she was 9 years...

    SANTA ROSA, Calif. - The former suspect in the JonBenet Ramsey killing left jail Thursday after a judge dismissed child pornography charges against him, saying prosecutors didn't have enough evidence to take the case to trial. John Mark Karr, who was not in court for the hearing, was ordered released immediately by Sonoma County Superior Court Judge Rene Chouteau, ending his two-month odyssey in the U.S. criminal justice system after he was extradited from Thailand on suspicion of killing the 6-year-old beauty queen. He did not comment to reporters as he left the Sonoma County jail flanked by his attorneys,...

    One-time JonBenet Ramsey murder suspect John Mark Karr was offered a plea deal Tuesday in Sonoma County Superior Court on child pornography charges that would free him on probation. Assistant District Attorney Joann Risse said prosecutors would waive three of the five child pornography possession charges against him if he pleaded guilty on two remaining charges. Karr, 41, would get credit for time served and would be placed on probation for three years. Defense lawyer Robert Amparan said he would discuss the deal with Karr, but said he still believes his client is innocent. Amparan said the public had received...

    Boulder County officials spent at least $29,726 in costs related to the arrest, extradition and court appearance of John Mark Karr, the former suspect in the death of JonBenet Ramsey.

The sheriff's office said it incurred $6,070 in costs, including $3,255 for Karr's flight on a state plane from Los Angeles to Jefferson County Airport in Colorado, sheriff's officials said Friday. Overtime wages of $2,468 and...

    About ten years ago, while writing a book on crime, I attended a district attorneys' convention in Las Vegas. I wasn't supposed to be there -- they don't like the press -- but I managed to sneak into the back of the hotel ballroom. After the first speech I struck up a conversation with the assistant district attorney sitting next to me. He was a young black man, neatly dressed, with a trim mustache. "What's the biggest thing you've learned as an ADA?" I asked him. He twirled his mustache for a moment, reflected and said, "People are capable of...

    Gov. Bill Owens ripped the Boulder County district attorney today, saying "Mary Lacy should be held accountable for the most extravagant and expensive DNA test in Colorado history." Owens’ statement came shortly after news reports that suspect John Mark Karr’s DNA didn’t match that found on slain JonBenet Ramsey. "Unfortunately, the hysterics surrounding John Mark Karr served only to distract Boulder officials from doing their job which should be solving the murder of JonBenet Ramsey," Owens said. "I find it incredible that Boulder authorities wasted thousands of taxpayer dollars to bring Karr to Colorado given such a lack of evidence."...

    John Mark Karr will not be charged with the death of JonBenet Ramsey, but will be held in the Boulder County jail awaiting extradition to California, where he will face charges of possessing child pornography, Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle said this afternoon. "California wanted him," Pelle said. Prosecutors decided against charging Karr in the killing of the child beauty queen because his DNA does not match the DNA found in the girl's underwear. Authorities notified Karr earlier today that he might not be charged in Boulder, but he didn’t get the official word until he was transferred to the...

    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - John Mark Karr bragged to his landlord's wife that sexually, he was "like a wolf," and said he "liked little boys and girls" when he worked in Costa Rica as an English teacher, his former housemates told The Associated Press. Karr, now jailed in the United States after his arrest in Thailand, faces a Colorado warrant for the 1996 murder of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey. Karr traveled around the world in recent years, including brief stays in Honduras and Costa Rica, where he rented a room in 2004 from Canadian John Hall, who now teaches at...

    ATLANTA, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- The mother of a man who claims to have killed JonBenet Ramsey tried to kill him when he was very young, a friend of the family said in Georgia. George McCrary, who says he has known Wexford Karr, father of suspect John Karr, for 40 years, said the suspect's mother, Patricia Elaine Adcock, "made a big round donut (of kindling) and put him in the middle of it" when he was a baby, ABC News reported Tuesday. "She just boxed the little baby in and tried to light it," McCrary said, but John's older brother...

    Nearly a decade since her brutal murder in the basement of her parents’ home, the JonBenet Ramsey case was once again thrust into the public eye last week, when authorities arrested John M. Karr for the murder of the six-year-old girl. Since his arrest, Karr has confessed to the murder of Ramsey, although the validity of his confession is being questioned by those investigating the case due to inaccuracies in his testimony. Local handwriting expert Don Lehew, of Mt. Selman, has obtained several samples of John M. Karr’s handwriting, as well as, a copy of the Ramsey ransom note, and...

    Karr treatment seen as 'brilliant move' By ROBERT WELLER, Associated Press Writer Mon Aug 21, 12:44 AM ET DENVER - Authorities probably had a very good reason for allowing JonBenet Ramsey murder suspect John Mark Karr to live it up on the 15-hour flight to the United States, legal experts say — they wanted him to talk. Denver attorney Larry Pozner, past president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, said the royal treatment during Sunday's journey — king prawns, champagne, French wine — was "a brilliant move." "What the cops want most is this guy to talk. They...

    HAMILTON, Ala. - Tara Estes was almost breathless with excitement because she thought one of the more mysterious elements of the JonBenet Ramsey ransom note finally had been revealed. She climbed the steps to Jeff Brown's rickety porch, brushed aside an orange wasp and sat down on a dirty ice cooler. "Shall be the conqueror," she said Friday afternoon to a couple of quizzical looks. "S.B.T.C." Ah, yes. The ransom note that asked John Ramsey to turn over $118,000 for the safe return of 6-year-old JonBenet has been analyzed over and over for nearly a decade. The long, rambling ransom...
