I still don't think this guy did kill Jon Benet, although he is admittedly a nutcase.
I can't believe how much the psychic's picture looks like him, though!

The most surprising thing is that the sketch looks most like present day Karr. From the pictures I've seen of him from the time the crime occurred, his hair wasn't yet receding then and obviously he looked a decade younger. He also apprears to be undergoing estrogen treatments now, IMHO.

From the nose up, it's right on. From the nose down (mouth, jawline and chin), quite different. But could just be changes from passage of time? Hmmmm....

From all I've read about the details of his confession v. what the evidence at the time showed, this is shaping up to be as bogus as the Duke-Lacrosse fiasco. But DNA will tell, of course.

I think the resemblance is uncanny. Except there's something Tom Joadish about the sketch.

It's the eyes. Wow, the psychic nailed those eyes.

>From the nose down (mouth, jawline and chin), quite different.

I thought so, too, until I saw some video of Karr. In motion, from certain angles, his chin looks a lot narrower than it does in these still photos.

Would be interesting to know what he looked like ten years ago. Did he have the haircut shown in the sketch?

I haven't seen any pix of him from the mid-90s. Anyway, the sketch is, at the very least, an interesting coincidence.

Of course, Karr may not be the killer at all.

From CNN:

"John Mark Karr gave authorities graphic details about the condition of JonBenet Ramsey's body that have been kept secret for nearly a decade, a U.S. law enforcement source told CNN on Friday.

"Those details were known only to the medical examiner and the investigators investigating the December 26, 1996 slaying of the 6-year-old beauty pageant competitor, the law enforcement official said.

"Some of the details Karr shared were gruesome -- and accurate -- the source said."

Incidentally the photo accompanying this article shows what I mean about Karr's chin looking narrower from certain angles.
