the Georgia Fish and Game Division releases a Karr tag for Georgia Hunting Licenses
ATLANTA -- It appears John Mark Karr has moved into his father?s northwest Atlanta home and that has some parents very upset. The homeowner?s association sent out an e-mail alert letting people know that the man who once claimed he killed JonBenet Ramsey has moved in.
Karr?s father?s home is not far from Chastain Park and that is why some parents are very concerned. Channel 2?s Tom Jones did speak to Karr and he wasn?t in the mood to say much about his living arrangements.
?Don?t make comments. No comments please. My dad is 85-years-old,? said Karr. ?I?m not about to say anything,? said Karr?s father.
That?s what John Mark Karr told Channel 2 when we arrived at his dad?s home in Chastain Park to find out if Karr had moved in.
We also wanted to get Karr?s response to an e-mail alert sent to hundreds of homeowners by the Chastain Park Civic Association. It let neighbors know Karr had moved into his father?s home, which is about 3 blocks from Chastain Park ? where kids gather daily.
Karr was in no mood to answer questions, but he took a copy of the e-mail alert from behind the door. ?Thank you very much. Thank you very much. I?ll be talking to my attorney,? Karr said.
Karr became internationally known when he expressed his fascination with young girls and suggested he was personally responsible for the death of child beauty queen, JonBenet Ramsey.
The case against Karr was dropped when DNA failed to connect him to the murder.
?We need to know that he?s here and that?s exactly what we did,? explained association president, Jim King.
King doesn?t apologize for sending out the e-mail alert. He understands Karr has committed no crime, and isn?t under the supervision of law enforcement ? but he says it?s important to keep kids safe.
