The murder of JonBenet Ramsey is coming back up again, as several shows are coming out that explain what may have happened to this young girl. Her brother is even appearing on Dr. Phil over the next few days to talk to him.
Radar Online is now sharing that a pedophile is speaking out and says that he knows who killed JonBenet Ramsey. He even explained that she wasn’t supposed to die, and it was an accident. John Mark Karr says that he witnessed the death of JonBenet Ramsey.
This all came out during a tell-all interview for Investigation Discovery’s three-night television event: JonBenet: An American Murder Mystery. Karr isn’t holding back when he speaks out either. He actually goes as far as to say that he staged the death scene of JonBenet Ramsey. Karr says this was to throw everyone off the case and lead investigators to believe that JonBenet was murdered. Instead, Karr says that JonBenet actually died because of an accident. He even says he tried to save her life.
Here is what Karr revealed.
“Nobody wanted that little girl to die that night — nobody! Her death was an accident. I was with her when she died. But I was not the person who caused it!”
Karr was actually arrested in connection with the death of JonBenet Ramsey and then later set free because of some evidence they found at the death scene. He says that he actually staged that scene, adding that JonBenet wasn’t killed there. He says that her body was posed. This is all very confusing, but if Karr is telling the truth, it could give the Ramsey family a lot of answers they have been looking for ever since the little girl passed away.
One thing that Karr isn’t doing is sharing who killed JonBenet Ramsey, even though he claims to know who is responsible. He also won’t explain exactly how JonBenet Ramsey died, although he says it was an accident.
His diary tells a different story, though. It reveals that JonBenet Ramsey death was caused by strangulation during perverted “sex games.” Karr still plans to protect everyone he feels needs protecting and isn’t sharing who killed JonBenet. At this time, it doesn’t look like he will share who did it.
Time shared a few details about JonBenet Ramsey’s death now that it has been 20 years since the young girl was killed. Police have collected 1,500 pieces of evidence and more than 20,000 tips, letters, and emails, but they still haven’t been able to solve the case. JonBenet Ramsey’s body was found a few hours after her mother called 911 and shared that she was missing. There was a ransom note in the house asking for $118,000, but the family didn’t even have time to pay this money; they soon found the little girl’s body in their basement.
The autopsy revealed that JonBenet died of asphyxiation caused by strangulation, and it was ruled a homicide. There was some speculation that her parents were involved, but they always denied this and were never charged with anything. They felt like someone broke into their home and killed their daughter. The investigation is still open, but at this time, police are not sharing where they are at on the case. Hopefully, all of this new press will encourage someone to come forward with something that can finally solve the murder of JonBenet Ramsey.
