超人のジャーナリスト・アイ 40 ジョンベネ殺害報道 続 

  ジョンベネちゃん殺害事件は時間が経つにつれて違った展開をみせているようだ。ジョン・マーク・カー容疑者の告白が事実といろいろと違っていて嘘を言ってるのではないか、薬物を持ち込んで殺したと言っても現場にはそれらしき物はないなど疑わしい点が出て来て、犯人は本当に彼なのか。そんな一転して別な見方も出始めていて、やれボールダーの事件のあった家の前から、バンコク、ニューヨークからと取材合戦がヒートしている。公共放送のあのNHKですら現地から女性特派員のリポートを送って来ているのだから、その様子は想像がつくと言うものだ。10ちゃんのデープ・スペクターはじめ、8ちゃん、6ちゃん、4ちゃんそれに1ちゃん(2ちゃんねる?びっしり詰まった活字をさっと追っただけ)とアメリカのNBC、CBC、ABC、CNNなどの映像を流しながら競って一斉報道だね。その度に観てしまう(フォローしてしまう)筆者はやはりミーハーなのだが。迷宮入りしただけあってこの犯人探しの性急さは尋常なものではないね。そんな中でひとつだけ誤解が解けたことがある。ジョンベネちゃんの両親が晴れて潔白、無実だと捜査当局が認めたことだ。
The New York Post紙には注目すべきジョン・マーク・カー容疑者の兄のインタビュー記事が載っているとあるテレビ局のニューヨーク特派員が言っていました。早速その電子版を覗いてみましたが、すでに更新された記事に変わってたみたい。以下はその最新記事。また、たまたまこの14日からニューヨーク滞在中のI..K氏には現地ではこの話題はどうかとメールを今朝送ったばかり。臨場感を味わうためにも。

E-Mails Detail Ramsey Suspect's Interest

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- The suspect in the slaying of JonBenet Ramsey called the 6-year-old girl "my love, my life" and prayed that the little beauty queen could hear his voice "calling out" from the darkness separating them, according to e-mails he sent to a Colorado professor.

"Sometimes little girls are closer to me than with their parents or any other person in their lives," wrote John Mark Karr. "When I refer to myself as JonBenet's closest, maybe now you understand."

Excerpts of the e-mails were published Friday in the Rocky Mountain News. The exchange took place between Karr and Michael Tracey, a University of Colorado journalism professor. The e-mails were shared with the newspaper by private investigator Ollie Gray.

Gray said he coached Tracey during the e-mail exchange, providing a law enforcement analysis of the messages and asking questions about Karr's replies. He refused to release more details Friday but said the e-mails suggest to him that Karr is a pedophile - though perhaps not a killer.



"I don't think his elevator goes all the way to the top floor all the time," Gray said. "I'm not satisfied of this guy's involvement because there's too many loose ends that need to be investigated."

Gray said he has not seen the May e-mail that prompted Tracey to contact prosecutors. But, he said, Karr "definitely knew about the case" and "needed to be investigated."

Tracey said the e-mail correspondence began four years ago. He contacted prosecutors in May, but has not explained why or disclosed details of the messages.

The newspaper said it obtained the e-mails from a source close to the investigation that it did not identify. Tracey has said the correspondence was voluminous, and he was sought out by Karr because he has produced documentaries on the case.


The e-mails reviewed by the newspaper did not disclose any possible role in JonBenet's death. But they provide a glimpse into the thinking of a 41-year-old man who showed a deep interest in young girls.

"JonBenet, my love, my life. I love you and shall forever love you," according to an e-mail Karr sent Dec. 23, 2005. "I pray that you can hear my voice calling out to you from my darkness - this darkness that now separates us."

The e-mail asked Tracey to visit Ramsey's old home in Boulder and read aloud the ode, which he called "JonBenet, My Love."

In one message titled "Pretty Little Boy," Karr claimed he was the subject of "a four-state federal investigation for child murder and child molestation" - an investigation, he said, that cost him every friend and family member he had.

"Some of my closest little girls were questioned by the authorities, which broke my heart into pieces," he wrote later. "I will never have contact with anyone in my past ever again. I lost my identity when this happened. This was the easy part. The worst was yet to come."

In Washington, federal law enforcement officials said Friday that Karr's comments since his arrest have piqued their interest and they want to question him. But one official said "there is no four-state federal case" in which Karr is wanted or even suspected. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is being handled by local prosecutors in Colorado.

At one point, Tracey wrote, "You told me once that your mother tended to raise you as a girl. This must have had a powerful effect on your developing sexuality - confusion maybe?"

"Michael, I will not discuss my sexuality as if it is a psychological disorder," Karr responded. "In my case, I disagree with that totally, and if this is to be the way we progress in discussing it, I might as well stop while I am ahead.

"On the other hand, if you would like to learn something about my sexuality on an intellectual, nonjudgmental, nontraditional and nonpsychological way, I would love to share. It would help you understand a lot about my connection with JonBenet and possibly about the case. Shall we?"

Karr said his father was a "strong influence but rarely around," and responded to Tracey's question about whether his "fascination with little girls - which clearly has a strong erotic component - is a way of going back."

"Maybe I am not going back but have simply stayed consistent," Karr responded. "My peer group has not changed since I was a little boy, and girls were the people I was with always. Referring to them as a peer group is somewhat incorrect, but might also be the very definition of what they continue to be in my life."

Karr also said he was "tortured" because of his present situation, which he did not disclose. And at one point, Karr also referred to the movie "Finding Neverland," about the author of Peter Pan.

"I can only say that I can relate very well to children and the way they think and feel," he wrote. "I think you are asking if I am much a 'Peter Pan.' In many ways, the answer is yes. In other ways, I suppose it is no because I am trapped in a world that does not understand."
