    Looks like he got a free trip home, a good meal, and possibly a get out of a Thai jail free card.

    (CBS4) BOULDER, Colo. A CBS4 source close to the JonBenet Ramsey investigation has confirmed that the DNA of John Mark Karr doesn't match that of the foreign DNA found on JonBenet Ramsey's body when she was killed.

    There will be no charges filed against Karr, CBS4's Rick Sallinger reports.

    It wasn't immediately clear whether Karr would be released by authorities later on Monday.

    Karr was given a mouth-swab DNA test while he was in Thailand, a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation has told The Associated Press. The results of that test were not known.

    Boulder County District Attorney's Office spokeswoman Carolyn French said Saturday that professional conduct rules and a judge's gag order prohibited her office from commenting on evidence.

    JonBenet was found strangled with a skull fracture. Authorities once said her parents were under "an umbrella of suspicion," but prosecutors never charged anyone in the case.
