ATLANTA – John Mark Karr's father says his son, feeling unwelcome in the Grant Park neighborhood near downtown Atlanta, has left the country, but did not say where he had gone.
Karr had implicated himself in the murder of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey, who was found dead in her Boulder, Colo., home on Dec. 26, 1996.
The 43-year-old Karr was cleared of the Ramsey murder when his DNA did not match that found on JonBenet's body. He was cleared of the porn charges due to lack of evidence.
Wexford Karr said his son had moved to the Grant Park "where he was helping me with some of my properties."
The father said his son has "been treated like a criminal."
