Old tapes of Karr revealed

Five years ago Wendy Hutchens met John Karr, the "suspect" in the JonBenet Ramsey murder. She exchanged emails and recorded hours of phone conversations with him. These tapes supposedly reveal his obsessive interest in the cases of Ramsey and Polly Klaas.

While infatuated with the case the full delusion of his being JonBenet's lover had not taken over. Nor did he seem to think she died accidentally as he claimed recently. He is heard saying: ""She was in a lot of pain before she died and suffered and was tortured. There is physical evidence of that. What a shame. It's shameful. That person did that to the most beautiful girl in the world." It is clear that is already obsessed with JonBenet but he knows that someone killer her violently.

It is reported that nothing in the tapes indicates he killed JonBenet but that he claimed a deep "spiritual connection" with young children who had been murdered.

Meanwhile the attorney for Karrs ex-wife, now Lara Knutson, says his client "really absolutely detests" the suspect. "Believe me, her better instinct would be to find some way to bury him for the rest of his life." But she says she can't ignore the fact that Karr spent each Christmas of their married life with his family in Alabama. And since JonBenet was killed between Christmas night and the next morning, in Colorado, Karr couldn't have been there.
