In the annals of media circuses, the arrest of John Mark Karr was a showstopper. When Karr confessed two weeks ago in Thailand to the 1996 killing of JonBenet Ramsey, the media went into overdrive, breathlessly reporting every possible angle of the case as though Western civilization hinged on it. The high point -- if it can be called that -- was Karr's business-class flight from Bangkok to Los Angeles, during which he was wined and dined in the company...

When Charles A. Lindbergh's infant son was kidnapped and murdered in 1932, more than 200 people confessed to the crime. But not the man who was convicted. In 1947, scores stepped forward to claim responsibility for the grisly Hollywood "Black Dahlia" murder of aspiring actress Elizabeth Short. Her killer was never found. Now that Colorado prosecutors have dropped charges in the 10-year-old murder case of child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey, the 41-year-old itinerant teacher they arrested, John Mark Karr, joins the long line of people who confess to notorious crimes they didn't commit.

LOS ANGELES -- A stressed John Mark Karr agreed yesterday to return to Colorado to face charges in the death a decade ago of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey. Karr looked pale in his first court appearance in the United States, and his lawyer described him as "getting a little bit stressed out." "Yes, Your Honor," he responded when a judge asked him if he understood that he could fight extradition. "He was very tentative," said his lawyer, Haydeh Takasugi, a deputy public defender. "It's a very trying experience for him."

BANGKOK, Thailand -- The mystery of John Mark Karr grows as he awaits his extradition to the United States in connection with the killing of JonBenet Ramsey. Some details have emerged, however, of the life he had cobbled together in this frenetic city. Like hundreds of other foreigners who reside in or pass through Bangkok every year, Karr, 41, taught students eager to learn English. This spring, one of Thailand's most prestigious private schools, the Bangkok Christian College, posted online and in the city's English-language newspaper an ad for a teaching position in its English immersion program.

Karr passed on to prospective lottery players yesterday at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Howard County.

RUNNYMEDE Elementary School pupils got a purple surprise last week. When pupils walked into their classrooms, they found Ravens car flags on every desk. For the elementary school, that means 623 flags. Third-grade teacher Kristen Karr, an enthusiastic Ravens fan, said Flag Day evolved from her display of team support the first day of school, when a wall was covered with Ravens posters, pictures and calendars. "One of my students, Andrew Lurz, told me his father, Michael Lurz, is president of the Westminster chapter of the Ravens Roost," Karr said.
