John Mark Karr, the creepy loon who falsely confessed to the murder of pre-teen beauty queen Jon-Benet Ramsey, is undergoing gender transition. And some are saying the plan has ulterior motives.
The man who claimed to have killed JonBenet Ramsey has legally changed his name to Alexis Reich and is reportedly preparing to undergo gender reassignment surgery. A former student of Karr’s, 19-year-old Samantha Spiegel, alleges he’s doing so in order to get closer to little girls, a charge confirmed by e-mails she produced at a court hearing in San Francisco last month. A Seattle television station reported that Spiegel, who met Karr when she was 9 years old and he was her substitute teacher in San Francisco, produced e-mails in which Karr, now 46, said: “I want to hurt you.” “If you deceive me,” he wrote, “I will kill you. I know where you live.” In one of his last messages, on April 10, Karr wrote: “If you cost me my little girls I will hunt you down and kill you,” according to KING-TV.
Karr/Reich was never convicted of any crime, but is being watched by law enforcement.
