Questions Swirl Around JonBenet Suspect

John Karr has confessed to killing six-year-old JonBenet in her home in Boulder, Colorado, in 1996. But legal experts are questioning details of his confession, and the District Attorney in Boulder cautions against any rush to judgment.

John Karr was dismissed in June after just two weeks at the prestigious Bangkok school for being too strict. The official says Karr came across in his interview as clean-cut, polite and experienced. But parents complained about his use of "time outs" for children who didn't behave.

Among the places Karr taught school was northwest Alabama, where he grew up. One superintendent says he had to fire Karr because of parent complaints. And a teacher who supervised him says she was concerned about the way he related to female students. Folks also gossiped about his penchant for marrying teen-age girls.
