Without knowing the specifics of what will be shown in court, we can't actually convinct him, but let's just say for a moment we didn't have the whole "beyond reasonable" doubt junk, and we could just go on what we know now... what do you think?
EDIT: for the sake of the 'special people' out there, this is the JonBenet Ramsey forum, and this fellow I'm talking about has been arrested for her murder 10 years ago.

I mean, even the killer can say things that are untrue about the crime... could be a ploy... could also be he didn't do it. Hard to say. He also apparently knew specifics of the murder, however. He may or may not have gotten these from another source... though it's not often that 2 people this sick get together and compare notes.
I think that the dude is one sick bastard... but, until we find that the statements that his ex-wife made (stating that he was with them, every xmas, in Alabama) weren't true, then I just don't believe that he commited the murder.
Something is fishy, this guy comes off as a loon. It's hard to say what's really going down. Is he sick? Totally. Did he kill this kid? Can't say. Regardless dude needs jail or a mental institution and to stay there for the next several decades.
Some things aren't adding up. Possibly, the theory that he's been in touch with the real killer is the most accurate one.
Case-in-point: If he was over in Taiwan and soliciting sex from child prostitutes, he might have met the pedophile who really did it. If he's starting to lose his mind, he might decide to take on the identity of that person--which, of course, would please the person just fine and dandy, because it would take suspicion off of him.
The person who did this seems to have had knowledge of the $118,000 bonus that John Ramsey had received, so I would say the real culprit is someone who knows/knew John Ramsey.
There could have even been some kind of meeting before the killing where this John Mark Kerr might have even written the note (from GA) in hopes of receiving some ransom money. He might have known JonBenet at a distance--and he might be taking the blame for her murder due to feeling responsible from being even this involved in it.
lodgebo said this in post #13 : Is there the possibility he did it and was not alone when he did it.
More likely than not, I'd say.
Even if he weren't actually there, he could have written the ransom note--with the promise that, in return, he could make love (in his twisted way of thinking) with JonBenet.
The note (recopied in his handwriting) could have been dictated to him by a terrorist (some of the note implied that) who knew something about John Ramsey's business (e.g. size of bonus).
While John Mark Karr was down in Georgia, this person could have either picked up the note from him or else it might have been mailed to him.
The person who did this would not only be after the ransom money but would also be lusting after JonBenet and not really caring that much whether or not she was dead or alive after he was finished with her.
Meanwhile, John Mark might have been anticipating getting a cut of the money plus time with JonBenet.
He might have gotten to feeling guilty enough to confess to the entire crime and would have asked the real killer for details not known to the public.
