    Dr. Lee was on tv earlier today and wouldn't say for sure how long except to vaguely say it shouldn't take too long. He did also say because the dna wasn't complete and possibly a bit degraded, the odds of a match will be less compelling than if the dna was fresh, etc.

    I think the dna has already been compared and they already know he matches. Dna was probably collected from Karr when he was in trouble all those years ago and skipped town in Petaluma. I think they illegally and surreptitiously obtained it and made the match, then decided to go ahead and get this guy - because the Thais were going to cut him loose and kick him out of their country.

    I am so glad that some one posted a DNA thread. I read a news story today that LE gained enterance into a former residence here in Sonoma County after Karr left it. Surely at that time they would have been able to gain some DNA evidence to do a comparison.


    Here is the story:

    Here is a quote:

    Karr was arrested April 13, 2001, and charged with five misdemeanor counts of possession of child pornography. A computer seized from Karr's home reportedly contained pornographic images.

    "He was brought to our attention by someone else for some concern about other cases," Sheriff's Sgt. Rob Giordano said. "I'm not going to comment about what those cases were."

    Dennis Riley of Windsor rented a house on Chetwood Drive in Petaluma to Karr. When he sold the house, Riley told the Denver Post, police contacted him and asked to look through Karr's belongings before the family moved.

    "They said he was out living another life" and confiscated a computer from the house, Riley said.

    If they already know, why aren't they coming out and saying it - what's the big deal????

    I was reading something about presumptive DNA matches may only take a day. Full DNA matches take much longer.

    Anniegirl,you couldn't be more wrong--DNA evidence is absolute--I have believed that the Ramseys were guilty from day one,but if Karr's DNA is there,then its case closed and Karr did it--there won't be anybody still believing the Ramsey's are guilty if Karr's DNA shows up--But as for the ransom note...

    I ,dunno ,PH- Have you read here much over the years? There's some dead set on Patsy's guilt- not sure they would change their minds; no matter the evidence.

    The BIG DEAL is the police might have results but obtained them illegally and NOW must perform the test out in public and legally to PROVE this man is the perp! YOu know, the police did this under the table - so to speak -

    I dunno but I'm not feeling very positive he's the killa!!!

    If the dna matches and he wasn't home with family at Christmas, then he's probably the killa!!

    --->>>The Colorado DA press conference today, DA stated that all the info they have is sealed. Mouths are taped shut, to ensure a fair trial, and a continuing case that will not be tried in the 'media'.

    Can't argue with that, but I may have to take some 'nerve' pills like that old lady on Andy Griffith show, the .10 cent kind.

    The DA really impressed me with her manner of explaining things, and keeping mum. Will see won't we?

    Four days, in a rush, as in the Peterson case. They took DNA Monday, and had the results back on Thursday. Remember the famous "Slam Dunk" speech by our infamous CA Attorney General.

    Strictly speaking it could be him even if DNA doesn't match.
    I don't think it is the killers DNA they got on the panties and the fingernails.

    They would still need to connect him to Boulder and Jon Benet on Christmas 1996.

    Yupp, and after that he has to provide meaningful answers to alot of questions.
    And it seems the few answers he has provided so far doesn't match up too good.
