    Would she have been old enough by now to have A_F hit it?

    In Thailand, he could hit it at pretty much any age. For $5.

    Nancy Grace and those other tragedy harpies on the news channels must be orgasmic at this news.

    Nancy Grace died upon hearing the news, which finally prompted Natalee Holloway to come out of hiding.

    WASHINGTON - A man arrested in Thailand is being held in connection with the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey, U.S. officials said Wednesday.

    Federal officials familiar with the case, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the man was being held in Bangkok on unrelated sex charges.

    The suspect was detained in Bangkok on Wednesday morning, Denver NBC affiliate KUSA said, and was going to be brought to the U.S. within the next two days by a Boulder County district attorney investigator.

    The girl was found beaten and strangled in the basement of the family’s home in Boulder, Colo., on Dec. 26, 1996.

    Law enforcement officials from Boulder were flying to Bangkok to present Thai authorities with documents in the slaying of the 6-year-old beauty pageant contestant, officials in Washington said. They asked to remain anonymous pending an announcement in Colorado.

    According to KUSA, the suspect in custody knew details about the murder that had not been made available to the general public.

    The girl’s parents, Patsy and John Ramsey, had been under an “umbrella of suspicion” in JonBenet’s death. The Ramseys said an intruder killed their daughter. A grand jury investigation in Boulder ended with no indictments, and no arrests had been made in the case.

    Patsy Ramsey died of ovarian cancer in June.

    In 2003, U.S. District Judge Julie Carnes in Atlanta concluded that the evidence she reviewed suggested an intruder killed JonBenet. That opinion came with the judge’s decision to dismiss a libel and slander lawsuit against the Ramseys by a freelance journalist, whom the Ramseys had named as a suspect in their daughter’s murder. The Boulder district attorney at the time said she agreed with Carnes’ declaration.

    This breaking news story will be updated.

    So, uh, who apologizes to the Ramseys for their popular conviction in the media?

    Oh, wait. Patsy is dead. Too late.

    Let me be the first to admit that I am shocked that her parents didn't off her.

    It will be interesting to hear this guy's story.
  10. What do we figure? This guy'd rather do time here than there?
    What a saga. Nancy Grace and the rest of them that kept sniping at the parents should all be flogged.

    If I knew it wouldn't make my ears bleed listening to her I'd try and watch that worthless hag just to see if she sacks up and apologizes.

    And somewhere, Richard Jewell sighs in empathy with the Ramseys.
