Good to hear. Good luck with stuff. So you're writing, eh? Great!

I shouldn't have said "bored." "Burned out" is more like it. Two to three stories a day gets old after six years.

I hope to do more freelance after I move on, which could be relatively soon.

I have a feeling, this guy is confessing for publicity. It's a sinking feeling the more I hear because I hoped it was solved, but now I am not so sure.

I read that the police have been investigating him for a while, so I'd like to keep thinking there's at least something there.

I mean, they wouldn't investigate him without something to go on, right?

You'd think that, but why would his ex-wife say he was with her during the murder? Also, I heard that he claimed he drugged JonBenet, but nothing was found in her system. (I heard this second hand, not sure if it's fact yet.) Also, it seems funny what he's saying, and what he's not saying.

We've been discussing it in the newsroom here that he was probably in trouble with kiddy porn or something like that and he's taking the heat on this in a deal. He's admitted to "accidentally" killing her, but not saying how he knew the family. I know there's a trial coming up, but ? If it is found to be an "accident," I'm sure prison time in the U.S. is far better than in Thailand.

Umm, this guy hasn't been proven guilty either and a confession doesn't mean he did either. He is a child molester and unless is story is verifiable with the facts of the case, he might be just another wacko looking for attention.
Interesting you say that because criminal profilers on the news (CBC) are openly saying that it's highly unlikely this guy is the murderer.
His ex-wife said that he wasn't even in Boulder that Xmas, apparently he was with her in Alabama...Hmm...

I'm not sure if this is true for all states, but according to the Michigan statutes, if you "accidentally" kill someone while committing another felony (rape, kidnapping....), it's first degree regardless of intent, so I'm not sure how much difference the "accident" is going to make. If there's enough evidence to convict him, it seems like they wouldn't let him deal down. I doubt the public would appreciate that and we all know how political the DAs offices are.

I don't mean to be speaking as if he's the man (or woman), there has been so little detail given so far I'm not convinced either way.

If they are really confident in this suspect, I wish them good luck finding an unbiased jury!

I'm watching a special on this right now, but so far nothing new...

Ok, it was sad that a little girl was murdered 10 years ago but really, in the big scheme of things, who gives a shit? Thousands of kids died today all over the world from simple preventable diseases, hunger, and violence and our media and news programs consider this the top newstory.

Sometimes I am embarrassed to be a human being.

Wow.... that statment just reeks of compassion.

I completely appreciate and share your disgust for the thousands of kids that die daily from preventable causes, but that doesn't make the sexual violation and murder of a privileged child (or poor one) any less disgusting.

I couldn't disagree with that more. I think I see your point, however it is a little girl who was murdered. It is absolutely essential whoever did it is found and tried and sentenced accordingly. No one should ever be free to walk away from a crime like that, it doesn't matter how the parents dressed her up or how the media whore themselves over it like flies on shit. This little girl deserves her murderer brought to justice, just like anyones'.

I realize that, AH We're both guilty of not explicitly stating that our comments were in reply to Trevster's post.

The problem is that the media is salivating over this. It's been a lead story on CNN for 48 hours, non-stop. They're like pigs in shit over it.

She deserves justice, but this is completely disproportionate coverage. Completely.

Thank you anitram!! My point is exactly that!

This is not the most important event on the planet! The coverage for this is appalling!

At the end of the day, it is very possible that this guy didn't even do it anyway. This is not a front page event. What about all the other murdered little kids whose murderers are found. The only reason Jon Benet Ramsey's murder got the coverage it did is because of the little beauty queen angle and the inability of the police to find the murderer.

I always thought the parents were judged guilty largely because of what they did to that child. Which I don't think is fair.

I fully agree with you on this. Yes, it's an interesting story, but I read on CNN.com yesterday about a plane having to be redirected because explosive chemicals were found on board. We had the TV on in the newsroom (just above my head) and I never saw them talk about this. Liquid explosive chemicals during times like this couldn't even break through the Ramsey case. They had to keep replaying his confession footage.
