I caught part of the press conference with both Thai and U.S. authorities on the arrest of John Karr and noted the following highlights:
According to the Thai police chief, the suspect Karr said of JonBenet that he “loved the girl” and admitted to attempted kidnapping and accidentally killing her.
He said that two days ago Karr had applied to be a teacher, but hadn’t started teaching yet.
The U.S. official said that the suspect was arrested at his residence and that he was very surprised. She said that he had been under investigation for “awhile” and indicated that the investigation went back at least several months.
