Bangkok, Thailand - John Mark Karr may have entered Thailand quietly and anonymously, but on Sunday when he was kicked out of the country his every move was under scrutiny by a worldwide press corps.
Karr, 41, who's accused in the nearly 10-year-old homicide case of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey, was driven to the airport by

Thai officials and placed in a holding cell before being loaded on a jet for a 15 1/2-hour flight to Los Angeles. He said nothing as he was paraded before reporters.
The Thai Airways flight then departed about 30 minutes late, and is expected to arrive in Los Angeles about 10 p.m. Mountain time tonight.
It's unclear what will happen then. But U.S. immigration officials speculated that Karr will immediately be served with an arrest warrant by Boulder authorities as soon as he is on U.S. soil. At that point, he may be turned over to Los Angeles authorities, and proceedings will begin to extradite him to Colorado.
Earlier on Sunday in Asia, Karr's day began in a holding cell in the Thailand Immigration Detention Center, where he was served a traditional breakfast of rice and eggs.

Stakeout begins for Karr's return
Media attention angers JonBenet's father
BOULDER, Colo. — Reporters and camera crews crowded the local courthouse grounds Saturday in anticipation of the arrival of teacher John Mark Karr to face charges in the death of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey.
The intense media attention in the case that has fascinated the nation for almost 10 years has outraged JonBenet's father and driven him to consider moving out of the country, a family lawyer said Saturday.
Karr said in a televised statement after being arrested Wednesday in Thailand that he was with JonBenet when she was killed on the day after Christmas 1996 in the basement of the family's home in Boulder. He called the child's death "an accident."
Karr will face charges of first-degree murder, kidnapping and child sexual assault.
Authorities in Thailand said Karr, 41, would leave on a flight to the United States today. "The tickets for John Mark Karr's departure are ready," Thailand's immigration police chief, Lt. Gen. Suwat Tumrongsiskul, told reporters.
Suwat did not specify the route Karr would take. In the United States, neither federal nor local officials would confirm the timing.
Television crews had already pitched camp Saturday on the grounds of the Boulder County court building in this wealthy college town.
More than 30 journalists representing organizations as far away as Japan attended a meeting Friday to divvy up media seating for Karr's first court appearance — even though the hearing hadn't even been scheduled.
