Karr DNA doesn't match crime scene sample

    Agreed. The whole story has been overblown from the start.

    I hope not. I got the feeling that they thought it wasn't him from the start, but with such a high profile case, they had to investigate.

    The guy looked somewhat like Lee Harvey Oswald did after he was arrested for JFK's assassination.

    Think Karr wanted to return to the U.S. to avoid certain death if he'd have stayed in Thailand? There's going to be a TV movie on this guy and books too, don't you know.

    And yes, because the media went crazy over it when Karr was arrested, yes it should be on the front page with this newest development.

    Also, did JonBenet's father ever speak to the media after Karr's arrest or ever during this fiasco?

    Books that Karr could write, too. Because he's been let go, he's now free to write whatever he wants. And there's always a tabloid audience willing to plunk down money to read that garbage.

    He did initially but when the electronic horde descended on his son when he was moving into his dorm at Purdue a few days later he blew a nut and said they would have no further comment.

    I find it very odd that the Department of Homeland Security was in front of the cameras IN THAILAND (not the Homeland) practically parading Karr before the cameras and was involved in escorting him home.

    Why not the FBI or the U.S. Marshals Service, both of which (I assume) are subagencies of DHS. Why DHS itself?

    Just wondering.

    I'm guessing here that the Department of Homeland Security needed to show what a bunch of geniuses they are and get the ensuing good PR buzz. Heck of a job, I say.

    Does DHS have staff at US Embassies? If so they may have handled the transfer.

    I think The Department of Justice wouldn't have been involved because the murder of that little girl would not be a federal crime. Kidnapping is a federal crime if you use the mail to transmit a ransom note.

    Homeland Security would be involved because it is an immigration matter of getting him into the country and they would have to clear that so he could be brought to the Colorado authorities.

    What puzzles me is how he could be released when he is wanted in California?
