"Strong evidence is uncovered that reveals Gary Condit did indeed hire the Hell's Angels to off Chandra Levy in the summer of 2001."
"Laura Karr filed for divorce after her husband was charged in 2001. When he was allowed out of jail, it was with a lot of limitations and restrictions, including supervised visits with his own children and he was not allowed to be around other children. He was ordered to stay off the computer. Investigators say he was using the computer for child pornography.
His ex-wife also says her husband did a lot of research on the JonBenet Ramsey case and also on Petaluma's own Polly Klaas.
Laura Karr also tells us she's devastated and embarrassed by these murder charges, but she does not believe that her husband did it. She says that during Christmas season of 1996 when JonBenet Ramsey was strangled and beaten to death in Colorado, they were living in Alabama at the time and she was with him the entire Christmas season."

"Karr was arrested in April 2001 in Sonoma County and charged with five counts of possession of child pornography, but he fled the county before he could be prosecuted...
...Karr worked in the Petaluma City Elementary School District as a substitute teacher from Dec. 8, 2000, to April 2, 2001, when he was dismissed.
Karr's father, Wexford Karr of Atlanta, told the Denver Post that his son had told him that he worked at one time at a Roman Catholic girls school in San Francisco and that he had joined the Catholic church.
The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing suspended Karr's credential on April 11, 2002, for allegedly committing an offense 'involving aiding and abetting the unlawful sale, use or exchange to minors of controlled substances,' according to the minutes of the commission's meeting.
...Authorities learned during the investigation that Karr had also been fired from teaching jobs in Georgia and another southern state amid similar allegations.
'We submitted (the case) to the D.A.'s office for prosecution,' Giordano said. 'At some point in the court process he failed to appear, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. That warrant is still outstanding.'
...JonBenet's parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, gave police information about Karr before he was identified as a suspect, their attorney said Wednesday. She would not say how the couple knew Karr....Karr worked in several schools in the district and in other schools in the North Bay."

"John Mark Karr's correspondence with a professor who made documentaries on the JonBenet Ramsey case was key to his arrest in the decade-old slaying, a private investigator was quoted as saying.
Karr, 41, arrested Wednesday in Bangkok, began an exchange of hundreds of e-mails with University of Colorado journalism professor Michael Tracey four years ago, revealing critical information about the 1996 killing of the 6-year-old beauty-pageant star, investigator Ollie Gray told the Rocky Mountain News.
'(The suspect) talked about being there, about doing this and doing that, and knowing this and knowing that," Gray said. "He had a whole bunch of things that didn't come out before. It wasn't part of what the media was allowed to get at before.'

"The district attorney in the JonBenet Ramsey slaying said Thursday there is ‘much more work’ to be done in the case against the suspect, and she warned the public not to ‘jump to conclusions.’
…Lacy suggested that the arrest may have been forced by other circumstances, including the need for public safety and fear the suspect might flee.
‘There are circumstances that exist in any case that mandate an arrest before an investigation is complete,’ Lacy said.
She refused to say whether authorities were worried Karr was lying about killing the little girl. Lacy said Karr has not been formally charged, and declined to speculate what counts he might face."

" The man who claimed he killed JonBenet Ramsey was known in his Alabama hometown for his flashy red sports car, but he was also dogged by questions about his marriages to teenage girls and behavior in elementary classrooms where he worked as a substitute teacher.
...Court records show a 14-year-old girl sought an annulment of their 'ceremonial marriage' in 1985, claiming she feared for her life when she agreed to wed him in 1984, when she was just 13 and he was 19.
Karr admitted she was a minor, documents show, but he disputed she was 13. A judge granted the annulment, and they didn't have any children.
Karr later married Lara Karr, who was 16 when their twin daughters died the day they were born on Sept. 1, 1989. The girls, Angel and Innocence Karr, are buried in the cemetery of a rural church in a family plot.
Former Sheriff A.C. Tice and others recalled the death of the newborns partly because of the circumstances: They were born at home rather than in a hospital."
