Thai police officials escort U.S. teacher John Mark Karr at the Thai Immigration Department in Bangkok on August 17, 2006. Officials announced Karr as a suspect in the case. Karr said he was present when JonBenet died, and that he loved her and her death was an accident. On August 26, 2006, the Boulder County District Attorney decided not to charge Karr in connection with the murder after DNA tests confirmed that he wasn't a match to the evidence found at the crime scene.
