He also said he kidnapped her from school and placed her in the basement after she was killed. There is only one problem with that confession; she was killed on Christmas Day and schools were closed on that day.

Well anyone should be aware that he may not be telling the truth and it may all be an elaborate hoax.

Where did you hear about the school thing and placing her in the basement though?

Two questions:

1) Why the fuck would you lie about killing someone?

2) If it turns out he is lying, couldn't he be charged with something else?

Answer to your questions:

1) To get attention
2) Yes, giving false statements to police and hindering prosecution.

The claim is that he didn't even know the family.

i cant answer the second one, but there are people who just plain disturbed. confessing to crimes one did not commit in not unheard off.

There have been kids younger than hin who have killed, but I don't think it was him because he couldn't have written this ramson note.

The killer was an adult, but not this kook.

Maybe this clown was facing sex charges in Thailand and figured a US jail was better than a Thai one so he cooked this up to get out of Dodge.

5 years of communicating with the journalist, trying to get all the facts of the case, and he'd get a simple fact like the date wrong? Sorry, I don't buy it.

It's possible that he's lying, that he wants his 15 minutes of fame, but surely, his lie wouldn't be found out by a simple fact like that?!

you can always wonder if it is a hoax, so hard to know without witnesses

I did notice that some of the things the guy confessed to didn't match with the rest of the information that the MSNBC article was presenting. But I would also like to know, why would he lie about killing her (provided this is a hoax) :confused:

Post #17 from the original Jon Benet thread yesterday:

Keep in mind that some ppl confess (including volunteered confessions) to things they didn't do, because they're so desperate for their "15 minutes of fame". I'm not saying the guy is innocent, but I'm not ready to jump to any conclusions just yet.
I didn't transpose this post to "brag about my wisdom" ova the murder of a 6 year old child, or taunt ppl here with some totally inappropriate "told you so". Its to illustrate that on many questions (war, religion, abortion, economics, etc.) as well as a murder mystery, "kneejerk reactions" aren't always correct.
