Amanda Knox Interrogation Tapes Released

Amanda Knox, the exchange student who was accused of murdering Meredith Kercher, has consistently been in the press since 2007, after police first learned about the now infamous murder. Knox also received tons of press after she was acquitted back in 2011.

And according to Stephanie Kercher, Meredith’s sister, all of the media coverage that Knox has been getting has taken away attention from the actual victim, she said. And she wishes there were more news reports that solely focused on her sister and not the trial.

“Mez has been forgotten in all of this,” said Stephanie, in a documentary about the case entitled Is Amanda Knox Guilty?

“The media photos aren’t really of her….There’s not a lot about what actually happened in the beginning, so it is very difficult to keep her memory alive in all of this.”

The documentary also shows police recordings where Knox explains why she lied about Patrick Lumumba being involved, even though he was nowhere near the actual scene. Lumumba was a local business owner and Knox said she was scared and told police what they wanted to hear.

“I was innocent and they were telling me I was guilty,” she explained. “I was stressed. I was scared. I couldn’t understand why they were telling me I was lying.

In addition, Knox says that police convinced her that Lumumba was in the house when the murder occurred, and after being interrogated for several hours, she thought their version of what happened might be factual.

“In that moment I said Patrick’s name,” she said. “I thought it could be true.”

Also in the documentary, Stephanie talks about the last few moments she spent with Meredith before she left for Italy.

“We were just talking on the sofa and having a little cuddle of goodbye and I just remember her suddenly crying and saying that she was going to be sad to go but she was excited to come and I remember being quite taken aback and I thought, ‘Don’t make me sad. I’ll miss you but you’ll go and have fun,'” she said.”

    This BBC3 documentary needs to be broadcast in the US. US media has been spoon-fed from a professional campaign of deception and the American people have been completely misled about the real evidence against Amanda.

    • CharlesD

      Perhaps you forgot that when this case was first reported in the US, they basically cloned the Italian versions and we all assumed that she was an evil witch. Only when her trials started did we get a totally different version. And Robert Preston’s comments on Italian interrogation techniques put her in an entirely different light.

      • elisa

        It was Douglas Preston and a dubious man names Sofrza aka Sfarza who started make online his Perugia comments. This man got charged in Italy for cheating so he flew to USA to Knox Family, where he got driven out soon, …sexual harrassement!! towrds A.Knox (one more time) and then he cheated again some People – so all in all he has jail Warrant in Seattle, in Canada and on Hawai for theft, cheating and sexual harrassement and domestic violance. (Francesco Sforza, aka Frank Sforza or Sfarza – look online about him). Preston Douglas I always found him a good jpurnalist in his past – but he made own journalistic investoigation in an old murder case – sexual murders over moore then 25years. He did this with his italian friend also jourbalist. They really found a lot about out but then on some Point they did Actions on their own without telling to the Police and so the Police last a Long time watch place – a Villa – where was something suspicious going on. One of the investigators was at that time Mr. Mignini, the later prosecutor of A.Knox mureder case. At that past time Mignini let Preston jailed for I guess 1 week – These both guys didn’t get well along. Later Preston went back home to Main (US) and as soon as he heard about Knox murder Trial and that the Investigation was lead by Mignini, he started talking bad about Mignini, often stuff from that very past case, he also has been involved – that case never got clear. Mignini never said about A.Knox, that she would have made orgastic sex games and being part of satanic Group and so on – this all came from Preston and from some remarks in the press years ago about the other case. He just wanted to pay to Mignini back – Mignini got investigated but everythig cleared up – his name and doings are in full honor again. So Preston lies about Mignini and as a Journalist he has the media for.

  • JC Court

    The BBC VOGT documentary is a rehash of the same old lies concerning this case and another attempt to obfuscate the fact that MS Knox was railroaded by the Perugian authorities. Thanks.

  • nocleanup

    Just wonder how Stephanie Kercher believes that letting innocent people pay for a crime they didn’t commit, ignoring that fact, not fighting to correct that injustice, so that all the focus can get back to her sister, is in any way just or right.

  • Daniel

    Amanda Knox is guilty as hell. Wish you people would take you blinders off.

  • dboymargarita

    I agree Leigh. In America, we could benefit by ignoring the so-called Friends of Amanda, the product of a carefully planned PR campaign that simply says there is no case, and start paying attention to the actual details of the case. What JC Court refers to as “the same old lies” is evidence, some 10,000 pages of it from the original trial. You may not agree with all of it, but after reviewing it carefully, it is hardly credible to think that Amanda Knox does not know alot more about what happened on the night of the murder and in the hours afterwards. I can understand someone arguing about reasonable doubt, but reasonable doubt is a far cry from innocent. I don’t know if Amanda Knox is actually guilty of murder (though I strongly suspect she was in the house when it happened and attempted to cover up what did occur). What I do know is that “innocent” and “Amanda” are not words that fit together. I hope the BBC documentary is aired in the U.S. so that people can make up their individual minds by actually examining what happened. If (and likely when) Amanda’s murder conviction is upheld by Italy’s highest court, her extradition may depend upon how many people are able to see through a misguided and ill-conceived PR campaign.

    • CharlesD

      Since when is hiring a bunch of lawyers to prove one’s innocence a PR campaign? Knox and her lawyers don’t need any sympathy from Americans or the American press. They are simply pleading their case where it counts – in Italian courts.

      • dboymargarita

        No one that I know of is challenging her right to hire lawyers, and I support her right to appeal her murder conviction. Her conviction for falsely accusing her former boss is already final and, imo,deserved. All I am saying is that, as the murder appeal proceeds, I hope that Americans will focus on the accusations and the evidence, as opposed to sound bite characterizations about them.

        • CharlesD

          First, let me comment that holding a rational discussion on these forums is very refreshing. I agree with much of what you said, however, I believe that her false accusations about her former boss were the result of lengthy, intense interrogations conducted without counsel or a translator. If either of use were subjected to that treatment, we would have implicated the Pope if that is what they wanted to hear.

          • dboymargarita

            Maybe, but I am not so sure. First, she wasn’t even called to appear at the police station that night. She tagged along with Raffaele. Most estimates say she made the statement implicating her former boss after about an hour to 1.5 hours of questioning. Since her oral statement (at about 1:30 a.m.) acknowledged she was at the house at the time of the murder, legal rights attached to her and she could not be questioned further. However, she made a voluntary declaration in writing about 4 hours later where she reaffirmed her earlier statements. I don’t think her oral statements were admissible in the murder trial, just the written one (I could be wrong). I do think all of the statements were admissible with respect to the separate charges regarding her false claim about her former employer. Like you, I am only interested in having a rational discussion. No one wants to see an innocent person go to jail — just as no one wants to see a guilty one go free. I am not at all convinced of her innocence, which doesn’t mean that she’s guilty. Like Alan Dershowitz said, I wouldn’t want any of my sons dating Amanda Knox. We’ll have to wait to see what Italy’s highest court does with the last appeal. I think it is far from the open and shut case that has previously been portrayed in the American media. That seems to be shifting, and more people are paying more attention to the actual evidence. Her conviction concerning her falsely accusing her former boss is final. Despite having received a $4 million advance for her memoir, I don’t believe she has done anything to pay the guy the restitution she has been ordered to make for ruining his life and business. That, to me, speaks a lot about the character of the person who wants us to believe she is simply a victim.

          • elisa

            You just wrote in best English what I tried also. I am not a English speaking Person, nor an Italian, so pretty neutral, I just read all documentary of AK Trials. There is not doubt about her guilt. A. Knox STILL DIDN’T PAY THE MONEY TO HER FORMER BOSS, PATRIC LUMUMBA, ALTHOUGH THERE EVEN HAS BEEN NO ANY COMLAIN AGAINST HER SLANDER VERDICT FROM HER DEFENSE AND HER SENTENCE WAS 3 TIMES ACCEPTED, ALSO ON HER APPEAL TRIAL. SHE NEVER APPOLOGIZED AT Mr. LUMUMBA EITHER ALTHOUGH HE LOST HIS BAR.

          • elisa

            Hi Charles, please, consider that AK got rvrn convicted for slander on her Appeal court, which freed her from murder but NOT FROM SLANDER. You also may look into the Police records were proven by 3 Courts, even her defense didn’t complain anymore: She was voluntarily at the Police that evening, to accompany RS, who had to answer some more questions also as witness.He Chose the evening, because he said, he ahs no time earlier having some dinner with friends – this was on 5th ov November, both he and AK didn’t join the vigil for Meredith at 8 pm as whole Perugis did, they went for diiner and arrived at the Police after 10.30. Ms Knox have had ALWAYS A TRANSLATOR and mediator. She was interrogated about 2 hours – after her slander she got incarcerated and wrote voluntierely a letter where she confirmed her slander againm. In the morning she got her lawyer – so everything was according to Low like everywhere – she even denied a lawyer before the Police offered, seein how nervous she is getting. She explained after she got concicted of slander, she explained to the court, that she has been treated well by the Police – this she did by herself. Her defense confirmed this and even accepted her conviction on slander 3 times. Now she lays in her bood again – “waiting to be heard” – I must say, there are not many convicted murder who would be heard so much everywhere like Ms.Knox, not only at the Courts but also on the biggest TV News companies. That the American can believe to a convicted murderer , forgrtting what she did and believing her lias instead looking into the legal documents, this is very sad.
            Regarding the Italian Justice – no American should Forget that even Berlusconi while still being a prime Minister, got convocted 2 times by a court in Milano – how can anybody believe that Italy justice is corrupt etc, just becaus of an unimportant murderess lika Amanda Knox is. Also remember all the judges who got killed by Mafia foe 20 yeras because of prosecution of the Mafioses.

          • blacksunshine84

            I agree. Knox had no idea what questions she was responding to because translations would not be exact.

      • blacksunshine84

        A PR campaign? You mean the media is foaming at the mouth?

  • guest

    i don’t know about anyone else but no evidence in the murder room means she was not there and did not commit the crime. how can you not have DNA if you were in that room? you can’t selectively clean DNA. everything else, what he said or she said is irrelevant to me.

    • Guest

      You forget that the area at the entrance to the house was washed up and underneath bloody footprints were found, that fit Amanda Knox and Rafaele. They were also seen at a “clean/wash goods” shop. So the murder could have started there, for example by Amanda (where she washed her DNA later) and have finished by her B.F in the room itself. Anyway, her DNA was found on the knife, together with Meridith’s, so how are they not guilty?

      • shyhorse

        Did they find Meredith’s DNA on the bottom of Amanda’s and Rafaele’s shoes?

        • lindi23MN

          No and No! All the DNA in Meredith’s room either belonged to her or Rudy Guede, her actual murderer. I always heard Brits were supposed to be rational but on this murder both the Brits and Italians are delusional.

      • al sheldon

        Micheal Berger, stop making stuff up.

      • Bremidon

        1) The area at the entrace was never shown to be washed up. In fact, it was pretty conclusively shown *not* to have been cleaned.

        2) The footprints were originally assumed to belong to Knox’s boyfriend (not Knox herself). However, they were later shown to more clearly match Guede.

        3) The “clean/wash goods” fantasy was part of a “made-for-tv” movie. Not part of the trial and not part of the official record. Just some made up drama stuff to make the movie more interesting.

        4) Seriously, how often are you people going to bring up the knife? It has already been shown not to fit the wounds on Kercher’s body. If Knox had used that knife, her hands would have been cut to shreds. Because it was her boyfriend’s knife, her DNA was on the handle. The blade has been retested many times, and Kercher’s DNA could not be found.

        That is how they are not guilty.

    • al sheldon

      guest, EXACTLY CORRECT.

      The only DNA recovered from the murder scene was Meredith’s and Rudy’s. One of them died and the other one is the killer. Even the bloody foot print has been proven to be Rudy’s. If Amanda had murdered Meredith, her DNA would be all over that place. You can’t clean up only your DNA and leave someone else’s. THAT”S IMPOSSIBLE. All this other bunk is speculation and conjecture, not evidence. Rudy killed Meredith. PERIOD.

      Even Rudy said he did it alone until the police harassed the hell out of him until he changed his story.

  • Anonymous

    There are racial issues involved as is always the case – I because I am white, have suffered a lot of persecution from neighbours of colour. It just had to be the white room mate who killed her. They have gone out of their way, because her father is a rich businessman, she is a talented achiever, so they destroy her life as they destroyed mine as well (the state)

    • Guest

      My understanding of the case is her boyfriend Rafaele, was the N1 murderer and caused a fatal stab (this stab was probably implicted by a strong furious male), Amanda was N2 ( maybe didn’t cause the fatal stab, but caused all or some of the smaller wounds,which is why she beleives she is innocent), Why Amanda’s DNA is not in the room? Cause the murder could have started somewhere else in the house by Amanda, and finished in the room by Rafaele alone who finished her off ( so Amanda only heared the screams from outside) and Rudi Guede is probably not involved. His story of having sex with Meredithand then sitting on the toilet…could be true..And the fact that he ran into italian guy with a knife (Rafaele) could be true too. He could have tried to stop the bleeding, panicked and fled. This version is certainly more reliable than any of the lies Amanda and Rafaele spread in court. So Rudy could have become a “black goat” of the case.

      • http://www.bourgeoisviews.blogspot.com/ BourgeoisViews

        Rudi Guedi was the one who cut Meredith’s throat. He got his sentence reduced after deciding Raffaele was present in the room. There was no way that all the blood in the room could have gotten there if Meredith had been killed somewhere else and then brought to her bedroom. The throat wound would have bled out too fast. Evidence of Rudi was all over that room and Meredith’s body. Only a small amount of Raffaele’s DNA was found on the bra clasp long after it could have been contaminated from being scuffed on the floor into the far side of the room from Meredith’s body. Suppositions of what could have been do not prove that they actually happened. Why should they be more reliable than the brainwashed statements that the police used violence to extract from Amanda and Raffaele?

        • Guest

          Look. Tons of evidence on Rafaele and Amanda was found too. Tons! Amanda’s blood mixed with Meridith’s, Amanda’s DNA on the knife, Rafaele’s DNA on a clasp (a high profile one) , wiped off stains at the corridor.. The contamination is one of the most ridiculous excuses a defence can make up when they have run out of words. Similar excuses they have found about the mixture of Amanda-Meridith bloods in the bath. It’s all by chance, they say! Just rediculous. I can tell you one thing: Knox and Rafaele are defenately involved in this murder. 100%. Rudy guede? Maybe yes, maybe no . Yes involved, if the sex game theory is true and they all acted together. This seems unlikely, cause they didn’t try to blame each other in the beginning! Why?Cause Knox and Rafaele could have met him for the first time when he emerged from the toilet (!), where he was pooping :) This was a surprise for them cause they didn’t know he was in the house. Maybe he came to date Meridith, maybe to rob. But there is reasonable chance he really tried to stop her from bleeding with towels, gave up, panicked and fled. His version makes some sense. This could be also the reason Amanda tried to implicate Lumumba! Cause she remembered there was a black man in the apartment, but she didn’t know his name….If Guede hadn’t have all the criminal background, he wouldn’t have been in prison today. There is a chance, despite his former history, he was actually clean this time This case looks like a chain of weird coincidences. If Guede had acted alone, Amanda and Rafaele would have never acted so weird after, would have never changed their alibies several times, would have never implicated an innocent man, and left so many bloody DNA around the house.

          • shyhorse

            Michael I want you to take your hands and rub them together. Millions of yours skin cells just fell to the floor. A persons DNA is in every cell in their body, not just blood cells. This is why it is impossible for Amanda and Rafaele to have been at the scene of the crime. This is also why Rudy’s DNA was found all over the crime scene. It also explains the mix DNA of Amanda and Meredith in a bath room that they shared. Let me ask you a question. Why was there no DNA belonging to Meredith in Rafaele apartment? Please don’t bring up the ridiculous kitchen knife crap! My point is, as bloody as the murder scene was, there should have be an enormous amount of Meredith’s DNA in Rafaele’s apartment.

          • http://www.bourgeoisviews.blogspot.com/ BourgeoisViews

            There is no evidence to show that Rudi Guede knew Raffaele, Amanda, or Meredith when he broke into that house. Rudi may have tried to stop Meredith’s bleeding, but he is the one who slashed her throat. The police cannot prove the evidence was not contaminated. So the evidence is worthless. Amanda had a reasonable explanation for having cut herself that had nothing to do with Meredith’s death. The sex games were just as much a fantasy of the police as the violence over the uncleaned bathroom. They just didn’t happen. Nothing Amanda said while the police were slapping her around can be understood as anything but Amanda trying to get the police to stop hurting her. It’s in the interrogation tapes that Amanda didn’t want to accuse Lumumba, but the police brainwashed her into it. It’s not a wonder to me that with all that brainwashing, Amanda and Raffaele couldn’t keep reality straight. That’s the fault of the police who wouldn’t let them talk to an attorney.

      • elisa

        Amanda Knox was the murderess – don’t forget her long big knife – with her and the victims blood on the blade! Althopugh AK’s Appeal court denied this knife evidence saying according to her defense, there were too little DNA of the victim, it apprachs too zero. BUT if AK would be innocent – there would not be ANY DNA of the victim on that knife. Also at the Appeal court AK was not explained as innocent but IN DUBIO pro REO

        • lindi23MN

          So you would like to throw these people in jail for the rest of their lives on a microscopic amount of DNA that was deemed not reliable by Italian investigators just like the contaminated bra clasp? If your life ever hangs by such sketchy evidence, I hope the jurors at your trial will have more common sense than you. Rudy will be out on good behavior soon and Meredith’s room was covered in his DNA. Why don’t you care that the actual murderer is getting a pass while Amanda and Rafaelle are being harangued and scapegoated for a crime they did not commit? O.o

        • Bremidon

          You have just disqualified yourself as an objective judge of the case.

          “…there would not be ANY DNA of the victim on that knife…”
          The amount of mishandling of the knife has been repeatedly shown. The knife itself was held with stuff that belonged to Kercher. Gee, big surprise that an *extremely* small amount of her dna ended up on the blade. Maybe.

          I have to say maybe, because the methods used by the lab in the original dna test were poor. The lab itself was not approved for some of the methods used and the investigator was not properly trained.

          The fact that every retest since then has failed to show any of Kercher’s DNA does not seem to bother you at all. Nor does the fact that the blade does not fit the wounds on Kercher’s body.

          So go on and believe what you must believe, but don’t think that the facts are with you on this, because all you have are your belief and whatever passes for a crystal ball in your fantasy.

        • blacksunshine84

          Maybe it was transferred to the knife by sloppy forensic team?

  • Nadia Silvershine

    dboymargerita: thanx for inadvertently letting me know about “Friends of Amanda”! I am going to join up in the effort to save Amanda from the screwed up Italian so-called justice system. She is totally painfully obviously innocent!

    • anon

      good idea, i’ll like to join too cause i also think she’s innocent.

    • Elisa

      The italian Justice even convicted ist Prime Minister Berlusconi and you think, they are not right in a ordinary murder case made by an unimportant narcisstic Girl like Amanda Knox? How important she was before her PR doings after she got convicted. all her lieas, she repeats again and again, even such about her bad experiances at the Police,even her defence didn’t complain anymore, Knox got a sentence for slander 3 times even on her Appeal court – there are no doubts about her Police interrogation. The 1 1/2 interrogation while she accused her Boss – SLANDER – was actually he voluntierely witness – there are no tapes for as she was as a witness and not yet suspect, but there are written statements signed by Knox and she repeated all her slander in a letter the same night after got jailed. In the moring she got a layer because of that slander she got suspect. Not even defense questioned any of the Police doings – and nox explained AT HER COURT, that she was treated fine – her lies started much later after her conviction by her parents in London and later in America, and now even in her book – where she repeats all her lies she even partly corrected while her Trials amd towards her defense.

    • elisa

      So you think that “so-called Italian justice System” would screw down an unimportant very ordinary narcisstic girl in a murder process although on other hand this justice convicted even their Prime Minister 2 years ago – how that? Who was Amanda Knox before her PR in Seattle??? Better read the Massei Report of Knox Trial and you will see. Knox was so unimportant criminal like many till she and her parents started this whole PR innocence Actions on News, TV etc. The most tragic case is, that she makes Money and Publicity through US press and TV stations just because of her terrible murder she 100% did committ. Also don’t forget she got verdict of 3 years on Slander /Calunnia/ even confirmed by her Appeal court, so without any doubts and for that she served 3 1/2 years. Therefore she has not been innocent in prison and she is a convicted on criminal felny (calunnia) without ANY DOUBTS, even accepted by her defense. Now she will get anothert Charge of slander telling lies about her voluntierely wetnesses at the police – also this her defense droped Long time ago because of not true. So you want to help to a criminal person (she is a criminal already) even if you are in doubts about her murderer verdict. Think please, about. Better she should pay the Money all the Courts confirmed, also her Appeal court to that man she accused without any reason so, that he lost his Businessbefore he could prove his innocence. She never appologized at him, neither paid anything yet to him and his Family. Where are her feelings for justice?????

    • elisa

      She is just the mean murderess, convicted and now again with lot of evidence as well from DNA as from her behaviour – lying, changind story, no having true Alibi, pointing on innocent people, accusing many people of doing wrong to her like her translator and mediator who has been very helpfull. She is just a narcisst who will always blame other people for her own mistakes, not having any emotions except for herself, using and manupulating her family and friends AND MEDIA. WHAT A SHAME THAT SO MANY AMERICANS LET THIS ORDINARY CONVICTED MURDERESS AND SLANDER MANIPULATE THEMSELVES. WHAT A CRIMINAL PERSON WOULD HAVE GOT THIS WHOLE ATTANTION – AND THERE ARE SURLY INNOCENT PEOPLE IN PRISONS IN US – WOULD SAY A FEW, BUT SOME.
      She also never have had really friends – all that people from FOA are organized by her family and the PR Company she signed with.

  • Oybama

    The only tapes of any interest are the ones from her initial police interrogations, the ones that the police were supposed to record but now claim they didn’t because “it was too expensive.” I think those tapes exist and I think that prosecutor Magnini has them and I think he get’s off listening to them.

    • elisa

      I don’t know where you have your wrong informations from – better read the Court documents. Knox got to the Police Station just because Solecito had to clear some of his witnesses. She was send home but refused. Both of them showed up first after 10.15 pm because Solecito told to the Police, he is too busy coming earlier and in the evening he has a dinner with friends. (Although there was a vigil at 8 pm for the victim, almost whole Perugia showed up, only AK and RS prefered not to go there. After about one hour Knox was asked by the Police if they can question har about some changings in Solecitos witness. She was agree and so it was actually a voluntirely questioning for about 11/2 hour – this was still interviewing as a witness not a suspect, that’s hy there were only made written statements without recording (recording would be against the low) but with a translator (as Knox had always one, that one with 22 years experience at the legal System). After Knox accused her Boss, the Police got suspicious. Knos signed her Statement – this Statement was anyway not used by any court – however from that Moment Knox got a suspect and got jailed. Still in the same night she voluntierely wrote an own letter where she repeated her slander on her boss – she did without being asked for. This letter fo course was used against her in the charg of SLANDER, she got 3 years for, even confirmed by her Appeal court and These years she served while being in prison. She didn’t serve any time in prison without reason. Slander is a felony. After the Trial AND HER DEFENSE droped her accusation against the Police, she even explained that she has been treated fine by the police. Her parents told wrong against the police after Knox’ guikty verdict and she later in USA and in her book. Of course she had to clear her permanent lies and so she repeated about bad Treatment at the police. After she got suspect and jailed, every interrogation is taped – also there one can read many of her lies. It is really sad, how many US citizens, who are so famous being helpfull and standing for justice, how they let themselves got belied and believe a convicted , even confirmed the second time!) by a ordinary murderer, with no any emotions except for herself.

      • Oybama

        When the police ask you questions you are being questioned by the police. The police are REQUIRED to record such questioning whether they think it is voluntary or not. Because they could not produce this REQUIRED recording in court, the so-called confession, written in Italian, was not allowed by the court against Knox.

        Put all this nonsense aside. Which is more believable to you: Knox knew that Lumumba was innocent but set him up to the police knowing that any prints, DNA, blood, semen, etc. would point to Guede OR Knox had no idea what was going on and the police, who only had a pubic hair from a black man and a text message from Knox as evidence at the time, wanted Knox to confirm their theory that Lumumba was involved? Then poof, their REQUIRED recording of the questioning disappears.

        • blacksunshine84

          I hadn’t thought of that. Maybe police did mention that a hair from a black person was found at the scene. And maybe, because her manager was the only black person she knew in Italy, she mentioned his name? And police ran with it, said Amanda had accused Lamumba?
          It’s a theory and not a bad one.

          • Bremidon

            This is not a “maybe” situation. They clearly did mention that they had evidence of Lumumba being at the crime scene. How would she have come up with his name at all, otherwise? Wouldn’t implicating her neighbors or other roommates have made more sense…*if* she was going to set someone else up?

  • gary 15

    In another article, her Italian boyfriend questions why she took a shower at her place after discovering it had been broken into. Normal people will not even enter their homes upon discovering this fact.

    • Bremidon

      Wrong. I can speak as a victim of a break-in. The mind plays wonderful tricks on you in those situations. The open kitchen window (in late November), the cold house, the disarray in the kitchen and open drawers in the bathroom refused to go “click” in my head.

      Only when I went upstairs and couldn’t go any further because the closets had been emptied out into the floor did I realize what my eyes had been telling me all along.

      Then things got really weird…but that’s another story. In any case, it’s perfectly normal to go into complete denial when faced with unusual and tragic circumstances.

      If you still don’t believe me, read up on how people act in stressful circumstances. There are studies upon studies showing how normal people deal with these situations. These studies completely contradict what you seem to believe.

  • al sheldon

    No evidence at the crime scene points to anyone other than Rudy. NONE, ZERO, NADA. If all of the physical evidence points to one person, and that person also confesses, CASE CLOSED. All of this cudda, wudda, shudda stuff is malarkey.

  • blacksunshine84

    This is ridiculous. It’s pretty obvious that the black transient, Rudy Guede, murdered that poor girl. It was his DNA and fingerprints found in and around the victim. What evidence is there of Knox’s involvement?

  • blacksunshine84

    What is the corrupt Italian court offering Rafael in exchange for throwing his friend under the bus? And shame on Rafael for taking it.

  • blacksunshine84

    I’d like to watch this BBC documentary. Where can I find it?
