John Mark Karr, the creepiest alleged murderer in a long time, did something today that probably shouldn't have taken two days to do -- get his ass on a plane and fly to Colorado. After his extradition appearance at an LA court on Tuesday went uncontested, it took two full days to get him on a small plane in Long Beach and fly him to Broomfield, CO, where his curious confession of the murdered 6 year-old beauty queen will be investigated.

From reports that two of the four security personnel who were assigned to accompany him on his flight from Thailand to LA sat in front of him in first class, to accusations of being interested in a sex change, to his first marriage of a 13 year old girl, and the death of his twins Innocence and Angel, the ransom notes, and even the story that his mother tried to kill him, and the rest of his family have already sold their stories, John Mark Karr is just too damn freaky for even this town.

Does he love these little kids or does he want to kill them? Are those eyelashes for real or is there mascara in that shit? And what is everyone's need to touch him? He confessed. He's the least threatening person in the world to any adult -- he ain't going nowhere. Hell, half the country seems to think that despite his confession, he didn't do it, and he just said it for attention.

LAist wouldn't touch John Mark Karr. And we're glad that he's out of this quiet little village.
