"It was an accident"

JonBenet death accident, says man

A US man arrested in Thailand has said the death of child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey 10 years ago in Colorado was an accident.

John Mark Karr, 41, told reporters: "I was with JonBenet when she died. Her death was an accident."

Thai police had earlier said Mr Karr had confessed to the 1996 killing.

The six-year-old was found beaten and strangled in the basement of her family's home in Boulder, in a case that shocked the US public.

Mr Karr, a former teacher, was arrested at an apartment in the Thai capital Bangkok.

He was arrested on a US warrant after being tracked by police as he sought to find a teaching job in Thailand, officials said.

Boulder District Attorney Mary Lacey said the arrest had followed "several months of a focused and complex investigation".

Mr Karr will be sent to Colorado within days to face charges of murder, kidnapping and child sexual assault, said US official Ann Hurst.

Thai police chief Lt Gen Suwat Tumrongsiskul told reporters: "He said it was second-degree murder. He said it was unintentional. He said he was in love with the child. She was a pageant queen."

The Ramsey's were subject to the worst speculation imaginable because of incompetent police work. There weren't 20 people who believed they were innocent. Which should remind people of the power of the police.

As far as our pedo friend "accident" means about the same as it does to my nine year old niece, I did it, but it wasn't my fault.

I hate those fucking child beauty pagents, they're pedo lures and the parents aren't much better, makeup on a child. Jesus.
