Here is a clip from a news article about the suspect in the Jon Benet Ramsey case. While there seems to be some controversy over whether or not he killed her, it seems clear that he was predatory in his sexual abuse of her. We MUST do a better job stopping these people before they cause permanent damage or death of our children. So, please encourage your children to speak up and report these people. Surely, we are smarter than these common predatory sicko criminals!!!

Questions swirl around Karr's admissions

'I loved her,' suspect says, calling JonBenet's death an accident

BOULDER, Colorado (CNN) -- Far from laying to rest the 10-year mystery of who killed JonBenet Ramsey, the stunning admission Thursday by John Mark Karr in Bangkok, Thailand, only deepened speculation about whether the soft-spoken schoolteacher committed the crime.
Citing ethical rules and the ongoing investigation, Boulder District Attorney Mary Lacy declined to discuss what evidence, other than Karr's post-arrest admissions, linked him to the 6-year-old beauty queen or the Ramsey family.

"John Karr is presumed innocent," she said, adding that investigators had "much more work" to do and urging people not to rush to judgment. (Watch authorities caution the public against convicting Karr -- 4:30)

Lacy also seemed to suggest the investigation is continuing.

"There are circumstances that exist in any case that mandate an arrest before an investigation is complete," Lacy said, citing public safety and the possibility of flight as two such reasons.
She insisted that her comments were generic, however, and that she was not commenting directly about the Karr investigation.

The 41-year-old American was being held at a Bangkok immigration detention center. He faces charges in the United States of first-degree murder, kidnapping and sexual assault on a child, said Ann Hurst, a Department of Homeland Security attache in Bangkok.

In comments before reporters in Bangkok on Thursday, Karr admitted to being involved in Ramsey's death.

"I loved JonBenet, and she died accidentally," he said. Asked if he was an innocent man, Karr replied, "No." (Watch Karr's admission -- 1:15)

Karr also had told an American investigator he had drugged Ramsey and sexually assaulted her before accidentally killing her, said a Thai police official, Gen. Suwat Thamrongsrisakul.
