Prosecutors have dropped their case against John Karr in the JonBenet Ramsey case, saying the DNA results failed to put him at the crime scene. They also cited circumstantial evidence that he was in Atlanta at the time of the Colorado crime.

Karr, a 41-year-old schoolteacher fascinated with JonBenet and Polly Klaas, a murdered California girl, said after his arrest in Thailand earlier this month that he was with JonBenet at the time of her slaying, which he called an accident.
