Though the Boulder County district attorney's office had enough undisclosed evidence to get a judge to order Karr's arrest in Thailand on a first-degree murder count, it was only after the warrant was issued that investigators started asking questions experts say would form the bedrock of a successful homicide prosecution.

For example, it wasn't until Wednesday morning, after Karr was in Thai custody on that warrant, that a representative of Boulder DA Mary Lacy's office called the Marion County School District in Hamilton, Ala., where Karr once taught, to seek anything in Karr's handwriting for comparison to the ransom note allegedly left by JonBenet's killer.

Similarly, Lacy's office has still not contacted the Colorado Bureau of Investigation to compare anything from Karr - DNA, handwriting, a palm print, footprint or even shoe size - to the evidence found at the murder scene.

Nor did the DA's office consult with education officials in Colorado or California to see if they could track Karr's teaching history. Karr's ex-wife and kids also weren't contacted to see if they would provide an alibi for Karr's whereabouts at the time of JonBenet's murder. The ex- wife has told a San Francisco television station that she is sure he spent Christmas 1996, around the time of the murder, with her and the family.


Since several posters have wondered whether or not a DA could/would extradite someone with no real evidence,m or without already checking alibis, etc., I thought I'd post this. I guess the answer is: yes!
