    Karr's Ex Wife Hires High Profile Attorney

    NBC News here in Northern California just reported that Lara Knudsen (the ex-wife of suspect John Mark Karr) has higherd high profile attorney Mike Rains (the attorney for baseball player Barry Bonds). Mike Rains spoke with reporters outside the Knudsen home. He said that his client is in the process of contacting the Denver DA in attempt to cooperate with them fully in their investigation. He went on to say that she is very upset and embarrassed, by this whole ordeal. And that she has not ever been contacted by Denver authorities in regards to any of the Ramsey murder investigation, or any in way concerning any investigation of her ex husband.

    Lara & the law

    Thanks for posting this info!

    Smart woman, hiring a lawyer at this time.

    I bet she's embarrassed, plus she has the burden of explaining this mess to her kids.

    Interesting that the authorities have not contacted her during this investigation which traveled all the way to Thailand. :-o

    Is the high profile attorney for her or for Karr? If it is for her, what does she need an attorney for?

    I suppose they wanted to be careful not to tip off Karr before they had him in custody. But it does make one wonder how carefully they checked on his whereabouts in 1996.

    Mike Rains is representing Karr's ex-wife Lara Knudesen. I do not know why she would need an attorney especially when he said that she intends to fully cooperate in the investigation in any way that she can. She has not spoke to the media according to him, (I thought she released a statement yesterday) but she intends on making a statement after she contacts the Denver authorities.

    Probably to keep the reporters off of her, and to handle the book and movie deal that is probably in her future. LOL Sorry, but I can't help thinking that way anymore.

    Why should you help it? You are absolutely correct and we can add "help deal with media outlets vying for her appearances."

    I would be embarassed, also, even though she's not responsible for his actions.

    Curious choice of phrase--"not ever been contacted by blah blah blah...or anyway concerning any investigation of her ex husband." In their divorce papers that were exerpted (is that even a word?) today in several articles, she talks about being contacted by investigators into her husband's possession of child pornography. One of those investigators even encouraged her to file a restraining order against him.

    Hi Anita, I probably did not word that properly. Clearly the attorney meant that authorities had not contacted her in any way from Denver and in anyway prior to his arrest yesterday. Sorry for the confusion.

    Tip him off?

    I wasn't aware that Lara even knew his whereabouts, let alone that she would be in any kind of contact with him. I could be wrong. ;-)

    I don't think she knew his whereabouts, but the cops didn't know that. Did you read or hear the interview that was done with his dad? The poor old guy (in his 80's) thought his son was dead because he hadn't heard from or seen him in years.

    What kind of guy doesn't get in contact with his kids OR his dad for years?!

    Media today quoted his father as saying that he thought he was "dead". I don't think anyone close to this guy knew where he was. I find it really appropo that he was in Bangkok, living in a district of prostitution and in a place where rooms are normally rented by the hour. Child prostitution is rampant in the area where he was arrested, he probably thought he was in heaven.

    She would need an attorney if she was worried she could be an accessory - before or after the fact. Did she cover up for him at all? Notice something, and hide it? Was she aware he was a pedophile (beyond what he did to her...).
