In this week's issue, Ed Walsh reports that former JonBenet Ramsey murder suspect and one-time possible kiddie porn connoisseur, John Mark Karr, "had sought gender reassignment surgery, not because of any driving desire to become a woman, but to help him avoid capture by police."
That seems a bit drastic if you're not actually a woman inside, yes? Fascinating, but drastic.
In lieu of Anne Frank-esque hiding or simply coloring his hair and adopting a British accent, Karr was in the process of hormone treatment and laser hair removal before getting arrested and shipped back to Colorado. Now engaged to a dame and living in Atlanta, he went on to tell Walsh that he "saw it as an opportunity to change my identity and further evade law enforcement."
