ATLANTA -- Authorities have served a temporary restraining order to the man who once falsely claimed to have murdered JonBenet Ramsey.

It came after a former acquaintance of John Mark Karr told authorities that he threatened to kill her if she revealed his attempts to form a cult of little girls to have sex with him.

Sandy Springs Police Lieutenant Steve Rose said Tuesday that officers issued Karr a restraining order last week at the request of San Francisco authorities.

The order was taken out by 19-year-old Samantha Spiegel, who claimed that he made "ongoing death threats" and "threats of sexual exploitation to children" in e-mails and instant messages.

Rose said detectives met with Karr for about three minutes on June 3rd and served him the order just before 5 p.m.
