The following is the text of an email from John Mark Karr to University of Colorado journalism professor Michael Tracey dated December 24, 2005.

The two men exchanged hundreds of emails over the course of four years. Information in some of the more recent letters caused Tracey to contact Boulder police about Karr's possible role in the murder of JonBenet Ramsey.





Michael,

We tried this once before. I wrote a wonderful message to JonBenet. You never delivered it. We talked about a memorial but it never came to be. The message would have sufficed but I no longer have access to all the mails I sent you from Europe. I will attempt a short message here. Please read it aloud to JonBenet at her house on Christmas. For that, you would be doing me a great favor.


JonBenet, My Love,

You are with me. Your lovely glow surrounds me wherever I roam. Your light shines beyond the darkness. Once so close to you, now, your spirit speaks louder than your words; louder than once did your laughter - that spirited, funny, lovely laughter that no one speaks of in rememberance of you though we know that it once existed and now exists in a place beyond this life. JonBenet, my love, my life, I love you and shall forever love you. I pray that you can hear my voice calling out to you from my darkness - this darkness that now separates us. We shall meet again and laugh together once more as we did in this life. If there is to be a life for me after this one, I pray that it will be with you - together forever with you and other little girls who are gone now from my life forever; this would be my Heaven. God rest thy lovely soul JonBenet, my love - I love you forever.

BTW -

I don't mind when news services use this type of material from my blog, but how about a little link love, folks? It's a two-way street.

A shout out to Don Imus for linking this blog yesterday; thanks, brother!

OTHER LITTLE GIRLS?!? Whoa, wait a minute! This is his idea of HEAVEN? Seriously, what OTHER little girls is he hoping to be in 'heaven' with? Regardless as to whether he did this horrible crime or not, this man is just plain GROSS. Mr. Karr is beyond creepy and perverted, he's INSANE...

This is one sick &%^#@$)!

If I had a dog that was this sick I'd have to have it put down. This is the most bizarre stuff I've read in YEARS.

Whether he did the Ramsey killing or not almost becomes a moot point. The fact that he has a mindset that lets him think that he can go to heaven and be with "other little girls" shows me that he needs to be permanently stopped. He's a dangerous individual.

Just my opinion.

This Guy is crazy. If he did or didnt do it at least someone got this amd man off the streets. I Think the reason he moved to tialand is because there is Free Legal Child prostitution there.
And to reply to "do". Dont think heaven is an option. May this guy burn for all eternity

He's a fucken cock. Just a 15 minute fame whore. Fucken obessesed prick. God damn dellusional at best. He's a pederast.

i am fearful he may have done this to more than one child, the way he speaks of other little girls and his previous obsessions with marrying children.didn't he marry a 16 year old who was pregnant by someone else with twins, and both those babies died the day they were born? then he went on to father biological children with this same girl. i pray those children weren't also molested.

I finished reading this email and now I need to take a long, hot shower.
I hope justice is served here, but I simply dread the all-JonBenet-all-the-time media orgy that's been enbarked upon here.

McCaskey said...

Hey, Mike, can we please return to the days of terror plot foilings, Mideast conflicts and how that thing in Iraq is going?

i dont think he did it. he is just a sad lonely crazy person. major ped, no doubt. but murderer? from the looks of him, i think jonbenet would have easily wupped his ass.

Please forgive my foray into Obsessionville, McCaskey.

I get fixated on true crime stories at times (Mary Winkler and John Mark Karr only the latest examples).

I have managed to go two consecutive posts on non-Karr items, so there is hope.

:-}

As looney as Karr seems to be, though, he's liable to say or do something in the next 48 hours that warrants another post.

The fact of the matter is, Karr, is insane. Whether he did it or not, is not the point. He's a child sex perv, so it's kind of difficult to say now that the man is insane, but he is. He's sick in the head based on his record, but is he delutional? More, and more so, it is looking this way. While many of these guys are delutional believing that they had a relationship with their victim, does it mean that Karr had a relationship with THIS victim, or is the relationship and the crime, all in his head? You need to put this in perspective.

I find it funny that people are debating if he had anything to do with this based on him saying it was an accident, and it just couldn't be one. Hello? Many perps commit crimes and tell themselves that. That isn't the point. What is more on the side of Karr having nothing to do with this, is him saying he picked her up from school, (there was no school since it was Christmas), and that he drugged her after, (there were no drugs found in her body). The ransom was the same amount given to Jon Ramsey as a bonus. Karr lived in another state, had never been to Boulder. Family claims he was with them at the time. People claim he was obsessed with the case-- there's ten years worth of information out there, which is where he would have known a lot of what was seen at the crime. Also, a lot of that info came later from people who worked closely on the case. I'm sure the DA does not know what was printed. The Ramsey's hired private people to look into it. Patsy Ramsey was never cleared of having not written the letter. Lastly, as many pointed out, signs were that JonBenet was being molested over a long period of time.

All this leads me to say, don't be surprised if it ends back up on the family having committed the crime.

If DNA is found, that's about all they'll have to convict. If not, Karr is just delutional, although still a criminal for something that has nothing to with this specific case.

I do believe karr is a sicko but I don't think he is responsible for Jonbenet's death . I still think the parents/mother did it . I watched the Larry King where the Ramseys were with that guy who believed they were responsible for the death and I don't think they were very credible the way they confronted the man about him saying they are guilty .

It is a sad time; there is much sickness in the world today.

I often ask myself whether talking/writing about it is wise, but it must be discussed, by rational people, lest it be accepted as normal.

Yet, to do so, is distasteful to me.

I forgive you, HM.
I know you can't help yourself. LOL

Holy shit.

THAT GUY IS THE UNWITTIEST, MOST PERVERTED PEDOPHILE I HAVE EVER HEARD OF!

He really should be executed for being so twisted and psycho.

Poor JonBenet...

i hope hes being tortured by us law forces


and poor jobenet i feel with her fathers pain

Anonymous said...

I think her parents should be hung for dressing her up and putting her on display the way they did. They are just as sick as anyone.

kaya said...

I must agree with anonymous @ 8.48.58 am.
The parents are responsible for the death of that child.

This guy is a sick person, that is for sure. I do not believe he killed JonBenet, as most agree, I think he just wants attention and is mentally disturbed. He does need to be locked up for life, so he can not hurt anyone else's child. In my personal opinion, I feel the Ramseys did have something to do with their daughters death- I feel more so that Patsy had something to do with it, she may have not killed her daughter herself, but I do believe she had some part in it, whether she had someone else do or whatever, we may never know the the truth.
