LIVE BLOG: Boulder DA Press Conference

Boulder DA states:
As you are now aware, John Mark Karr was arrested for the murder of JonBenet Ramsey.

The DA's office, in the conjunction with many other agencies in locating and identifying Mr. Karr. There is much more work to be done!

Our preference would be to continue to work outside of the public eye, but we know that is not possible.

I am not commenting on the particular nature of this arrest.
We are absolutely overwhelmed by the selfless dedication of the hard work of these investigators. We can not adequately express out thanks.

Thank you to DA investigator Mark Spray, leaving DIA for Thailand with little more the four hour advance notice last Monday.
We can't comment on evidence at this time.

No scheduled arrival time for suspect. We should know in a couple days

Prohibited to tell you under Colorado law, can not discuss the possibility of a guilty plea or opinion as to guilt. I can not discuss a confession or a refusal to make a confession. I can not discuss forensic tests that are being performed or the results of tests or the failure or refusal to take a test and I can not talk about anything in regards to evidence in the case.
This was interesting. When asked if this exonerates John Ramsey, JonBenet's dad the DA states:
John Ramsey is presumed innocent, John Karr is presumed innocent
I half thought there would be some kind of an apology to the Ramsey family, but they seem to not be quite ready to let go of that.

We just may be closer to the truth then we have ever been in this case. I'll be watching the gear of justice churn on this one.
