    It is beginning to get a bit suspicious that all of his statements don't match what is known about the crime. Don't false confessors usually get at least one thing right?
    Please assume anything in my posts that is uncredited is my opinion.

    OK, does this mean that the autopsy report was wrong, and the garrotte around her neck had nothing to do with her death? And if this is what happened why did he strick her with an object after she was already dead?

    Is there any record of anyone ever dying from chlorform?

    I would think that an analyses of lung tissue would reveal the presence of chloroform.

    If she were chloroformed and out cold or dead why the blunt force trauma to the head?

    ...this is crap...

    ....acording to the autopsy, she was budgeoned first (with the flaslight), then strangled. The reason they could tell this is because bodies BLEED ONLY WHEN THEY ARE ALIVE...

    If she were dead and then hit on the head, she would not have a subdural hematoma, or bleeding of the brain....

    Chloroform can easily burn skin, such as lips Given the use of a garrote to strangle Jon Benet, you have to wonder if this is Karr hoping that he might more readily sell a chloroform overdose as an accident versus death from a garrote strangulation.

    That answers my theory then. I would have guessed if he were mentally off he may have bludgeoned her "for dying". This would have been done in anger.

    Ceril Wecht (Sp?) the forensic doctor who wrote the book "Who Killed JonBenet" said today on Fox that there was only 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of blood and that the blow came post mortem. I do realize that there are other forensic people out there who have said the opposite of his comment. So there are two camps as to when the blow to the head actually came.

    Does anyone know what the autopsy report actually said about the blow to the head?

    The source of many of these controversial reports seems to be the same Thai official who previously told a Western journalist that he had not been present at interrogations. I'm waiting for the dust to settle....

    Guppy, per the medical reports, I think we have all long held that Jon Benet died of strangulation. I certainly am not buying into today's news report that has Karr allegedly making this claim. Assuming the report is accurate, I will wait for medical experts to comment on this newly alleged cause of death.

    However, Karr clearly said that JonBenet's death was an accident and that the correct murder charge, per Karr, would be second-degree murder. Before now, I honestly do not recall hearing a murder suspect citing what the proper murder charge should be.

    As I posted above, this could be Karr thinking that an accidental death would sell better if he said it was from a chloroform overdose versus from a more heinous garroting. Moreover, though it was not certifiably proven, we still have the alleged stun gun marks, and I do not see why he would have used both a stun gun and chlorofrm. So we will need to wait to hear more about what allegedly took place that night.
