An Eerie Ode to JonBenet Ramsey

ByABC News

Aug. 18, 2006 — -- A series of e-mails believed to have been exchanged between John Mark Karr and University of Colorado professor Michael Tracey offer an eerie insight into the mind of the 41-year-old Karr.

Karr confessed Thursday to accidentally killing 6-year-old beauty pageant queen JonBenet Ramsey in 1996.

In one e-mail, Karr asked Tracey to visit the Ramseys' house in Boulder, Colo., and read aloud an ode he called "JonBenet, My Love."

"JonBenet, my love, my life. I love you and shall forever love you. I pray that you can hear my voice calling out to you from my darkness -- this darkness that now separates us," it read, in part.

In others, he described his paranoia after being the target of what he described as a federal investigation for "child murder and molestation."

Below are excerpts from e-mails obtained Thursday by the Rocky Mountain News. (For more on Karr's e-mail exchange with Tracey, visit the Rocky Mountain News here.)
