Tell Me …

What are the two most disturbing words in this news story?

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) – John Mark Karr, who made what turned out to be bogus claims of killing JonBenet Ramsey, was jailed Saturday in a domestic argument at his father’s house in suburban Atlanta.

Officers received a 911 call late Friday from the house about an argument between Karr, his girlfriend and his father, Sandy Springs Police Lt. Steve Rose said.

Karr, who was arrested last summer in Thailand after making bizarre, detailed confessions in the 6-year-old beauty contestant’s death, was arrested in the domestic case shortly before midnight and charged with battery and obstruction.

Officers took Karr to a hospital after he complained of chest pains, and took him to jail late Saturday morning, Rose said. No other details were immediately released.

Karr’s confession last summer was a sudden turn in the decade-old Ramsey killing in Boulder, Colo. But after Karr, a sometime teacher obsessed with the little girl’s slaying, was brought back to the U.S., he was freed for lack of corroboration for his claims—or even any solid indication he’d been near Boulder at the time of the killing.

Wow, This Girl’s a Catch

Ron – Here’s one for you.

TURLOCK, Calif. —

A bride-to-be who wanted to get out of a date with a man she met on a phone chat line sent officers on a wild chase when she faked her abduction, police said.
Sara White, 20, was charged Wednesday with a misdemeanor charge of abusing emergency dispatch services for telling authorities she had been hit on the head and dragged into the trunk of a car while sitting in a Sacramento park.

White said she concocted the story Monday after changing her mind about meeting the man, with whom she’d been talking on the phone for two weeks.

“Basically, it was the only thing I could think of,” she said.

The man called authorities, who dispatched 60 officers to search for her.

White continued the lie when officers called her cell phone. At one point, she described being taken to a white house with green trim — her home, where police found her when they became suspicious of her story.

“We told her to hang on, that we are going to save her,” said Sacramento police Sgt. Matt Young. “And all this time she is sitting in her living room.”

White, who spent two nights in jail after her arrest Monday night, said she feels bad about lying to the police. Her engagement is still on, and she plans to get married in April.
