Amanda Knox: Sollecito Questioning Her Innocence?

By: Lacy Langley - February 25, 2014

Amanda Knox just can’t catch a break. After being convicted last month for the now infamous 2007 murder of roommate Meredith Kercher, her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito is now admitting that he has questions about Knox’s behavior on the morning after Kercher’s murder, according to the Daily Mail.

“Certainly I asked her questions,” Sollecito said in the interview for Italian TV, which aired in part on the Today show on Monday.

He specified, “Why did you take a shower? Why did she spend so much time there?”.

These are questions he says he doesn’t have the answers to. After the two have stuck together in their alibi for that night for so long and have refused to turn on each other in exchange for reduced jail time, why would he change his tune this late in the game?

Sollecito could possibly be taking precautions by distancing himself from Knox, according to NBC legal analyst Lisa Bloom.

“He’s saying that there’s some evidence that may apply to her that doesn’t apply to him.” she said. She could be right. There would be many benefits to distancing himself from Amanda Knox, however, earlier this month she denied the growing speculation.

Knox states in her personal blog, “It has been claimed that, in this most recent round of closing arguments and in interviews since the latest guilty verdict, Raffaele and his defense attorneys have finally betrayed their resentment and started to put distance between him and me legally and personally. This is not the case. Actually, Attorney Bongiorno’s closing arguments and Raffaele’s latest statements pinpoint and attack a fundamental weakness in the prosecution’s case against both Raffaele and me that has been ignored for far too long: Raffaele is not a slave.”

She then added, “Raffaele has plenty of reason for resentment, but not against me. The only reason he has been dragged into this is because he happens to be my alibi.”

Knox also says that Sollecito has been in contact with her by email, and recently said this to her, “I don’t want to be punished for, nor have to continue to justify, those things that regard you and not me. Obviously the evidence demonstrates both of our innocence, but it seems that for the judges and the people this objectivity is of no importance.”

So is this implication of his attempt at distance true or simply a ploy to insist on her guilt?

    She stayed there while her friend was lying there dead and took a shower?! Now I truly believe she is guilty…

      Boy, your pretty easily swayed!

      • grammarmaven

        “your” is possessive (your dog, your hat)
        “you’re” = you are

        • Jason Darrah

          How about “your mom”? Is that possessive as well?

          • suki

            Probably depends on who “your mom” is, whether or not maven wants to posess her. BTW, isn’t it interesting that ‘maven’ didn’t put her response in the form of a grammatically correct sentence?

          • Paul Davis

            No kidding, Suki…I love it!

            The purpose of writing is to communicate an idea or premise. Therefore, it does seem that the idea was properly communicated, and with examples. Different languages, even written in Arabic, have differing sentence structures, which can be lost in translation. If you understood his intention, then he effectively communicated his idea, therefore, point, set, match.

        I’m pretty sure she/he was being facetious. Otherwise…I agree with you. People do some strange things when in shock.

        After Amanda Knox stabbed Meredith with Rudy, she showered in order to get Meredith’s blood off of her. That’s why they found Meredith’s blood with Amanda Knox’s DNA in it. After that she went to the nearby store and bought a mop and some bleach and then cleaned up the crime scene as fast as she could, and it almost worked, but she missed some areas. She is obviously guilty and for her extradition, she will first be incarcerated in a tough US federal prison in about a year from now. Read all about it here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/new

        It’s actually possible to remove dna with bleach. As bleach contains sodium hypochlorite, an extremely corrosive chemical
        that can break the hydrogen bonds between DNA base pairs and thus
        degrade or “denature” a DNA sample. The cops found Miranda’s blood in the bathtub drain, in the sink and on the floor and ALL samples contained Knox’s DNA. This came from Knox’s bloody hands and bloody body after she murdered Meredith. That is why she took the shower.

        Also Knox’s dna was found on the handle of the knife and Kircher’s dna was found on the blade. The cops know that Raffaele and Knox ‘cleaned’ that knife with bleach just like they tried to clean up the crime scene.

        And finally…

        Q: How did Amanda Knox know about Meredith’s fatal injury before the police made that public information?

        A: Because she, Raffaele and Rudy killed Meredith Kircher.

        I initially thought she was innocent, not anymore.

        THANK YOU JOE ZOO…

        • glucose

          So if she did all this cleaning with bleach to eliminate her
          DNA, why then was Rudy Guede’s DNA found all over
          the place? Are you saying that bleach is somehow
          magically guided to only destroy the DNA of the person
          using it, but leave all other evidence there? What magical
          la-la land do you inhabit?

          You shills for the Italian Prosecutors have become worse
          even than the mafia.

            Very simple. They were in a hurry and didn’t clean the bedroom enough. Just like they didn’t clean the bathroom enough and just like they didn’t clean the knife enough. Why is this so hard to comprehend?

            John Kercher Jr, you are a either an ignoramus or
            a complete lying dirtbag. You know as well as
            everybody else that no trace of DNA from Knox or
            Sollecito was found in MK’s bedroom, but there was
            plenty of DNA left over from Guede. Bleach don’t
            work that way, dirtbag. In fact, there isn’t a cleaning
            product on the planet that can work that way. You
            know that perfectly well, but continue trying to mislead
            people with stupid comments like this.

            OK, lets cut to the chase:

            Door #1)
            You and your trollcrap friends are paid click-

            Door #2)

            Mail, and John Jr poisoning the well at the BBC.

            They’ll do anything to make sure they get that $37M
            settlement out of Amanda’s hide. Oh, “we need to
            remember Meredith in all of this”. Crocodile Tears!
            They’re ruining her memory by doing their best
            to destroy the lives of two innocents.
            If Meredith was like the rest of her diseased
            family, I wouldn’t blame Amanda one bit for
            offing her. Sounds like she may have been a little
            bit nicer that her snake-in-the-grass siblings,
            though

            Door #3)
            You and your trollcrap buddies are friends with the
            ugly, malignant wen that is the Italian Prosecutorial
            Gang that has done their best to railroad Knox

            and Sollecito.

            Regardless of what you are, you and your buddies
            deserve to die a slow horrible death, you verminous
            creep. Preferably tied to a stake over a low, slow fire,
            just like the witches that you have falsely claimed
            Amanda to be.

            Why did Amanda Knox nearly have a nervous breakdown when detectives walked her through the kitchen of the flat asking questions about the knife drawer a few days later?

            OK,two:why on your own private planet Zippy would Raffaele the Dim Knifeboy write in prison that he had cut Meredith with the knife in evidence?

          • andy

            Sugarboy,
            Knifeaelle’s DNA was found on the bra clasp.The bra was cut off AFTER the death.He was a knife fanatic who was into animal porn and comic books which presented scenes with violent murders of women by knife.He had a major league drug problem to go with issues of abandonment towards women,stemming from his mother’s suspected suicide.His father called him every night to stay on top of his scene in Perugia,a somewhat notorious drug and drinks town.He certainly didn’t call because he was a clingy Dad.
            Unless you’re a tinfoil hatter with an “it’s a fix by hundreds of depraved Eye-talians” argument you have to explain how that bra clasp contamination occurred.
            And you can’t.It’s very implausible.
            This in tandem with the fact that he told the Carabinieri nothing was stolen during the “break-in” even though the room’s tenant hadn’t even arrived home yet to know,places him at the scene of the crime either during or just after the killing.
            And what’s with the trashing of the Kerchers? That’s just indefensible and you should be ashamed.
            It seems to be a plank in the Amanda Cult to trash and slander the Kercher family,simply for thinking her guilty.

          • glucose

            Joe, you’re the one wearing the tinfoil hat. Your
            inability to differentiate between Guede and Sollecito
            shows that your IQ is average. IE, low.

            The bra clasp was kicked around the murder scene
            for weeks, picked up, dropped, and in general
            mishandled before finally being picked up and
            taken in for analysis. Then the idiot forensics team
            tried to run an LCN(Low Copy Number) DNA analysis
            trying to amplify the tiny, TINY amount of DNA on the
            clasp. Except that they didn’t have the right equipment
            or the training to do that LCN analysis. So the bra
            clasp is crap evidence.

            You guilters know that, but like the lying dirtbags you
            (and the loony italian prosecutors)are, you keep
            bringing up discredited :”evidence”, like apes throwing
            their crap at Zoo visitors, hoping something will stick.

            I’m moving on to the next article – this discussion thread is old and stale, just like your crap “evidence”.

          • andy

            Take a hike,son.Nobody gives a shit,and try to avoid slashing at the Kerchers wherever you go,the very real victim’s here.

            As you stamp away with your tail between your legs,thumbsucker,consider the fact that you just contaminated the bra clasp with the low DNA argument for the knife.The bra clasp was chock full of Raffaele’s DNA,i.e skin flakes,and if you can ever google up or invent an even slightly plausible theory for how his DNA ended up there through contamination the world awaits your legerdemain.

            Get cutting,sunshine.

          You’re welcome CA Cook. It’s good to know that there is someone else here who is grounded in reality. Knox’s parents have hired a PR firm in the US to try to brainwash the masses, and many of the sheeple here have obviously drank the kool aid. Another good question is why did Knox tell the police that she was at the crime scene with her boss, but then when she was interviewed by Diane Sawyer, she said she wasn’t there? But the postal police first found her AT THE SCENE. Once the disillusioned start drinking, it’s hard for them to stop, indeed.

      • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

        Yeah, right. She took a shower to wash off all the blood all over her hands and body. How come she could not tell Raffaele why she took a shower that morning? It’s a simple question, but she clammed up. Notice how she also has not yet responded to this latest news? A very simple question that she could not answer then and cannot answer now.

      • andy

        “I,she,he,why,when,duh or what”, who admitted killing Meredith?

      There was a very, very small amount of blood in the bathroom, not enough to say “my roommate is dead in her bedroom”, the amount was so small not even the postal police, who were first on the scene were alarmed, and they refused to break down Meredith’s door.

        Wrong.The Postal Police refused because they were not allowed to.The boyfriend of the Italian kicked the door in immediately after the police refused-with their approval and at the adamant urging of Filomena.
        The blood was enough to supposedly alarm Amanda,according to her story about her mindset as she dashed (hmm…after lingering there for well over an hour?) off to Raffaele’s.The fact that so many of you saps out there fall for her garbage about not noticing a goddamned obvious bloody foot print and other smears on a tiny bathmat is sad.20 years old is not 12 years old.
        Didn’t she even try to finesse the possible discovery of her bloody footprints with Luminol by claiming that she had used the bloody bathmat as a skateboard over to her room because she forgot her towel?

    • Julie B

      Why does that make her guilty? Merediths door was locked, so Amanda taking a shower had nothing to do with anything. No one knew what was behind Merediths closed door.

  • chase sheridan

    @CA Cook…..maybe before you comment you should read the testimony. Amanda came home and Meredith’s door was shut, so Amanda assumed she sleeping. Amanda then took a shower. When she stepped out of the shower, she noticed a spot of blood on the floor. When she couldn’t get Meredith to open her door, she broke into Meredith’s private room and discovered her friend’s death. She did NOT knowingly shower “with her friend lying there dead.”

      Yes- but why did she go to Rafael’s house agitated and tell him that the front door had been broken into and there was blood in the bathroom. If I came home to find the front door broken, I would’ve left at that moment and called someone if not the police. I wouldn’t have gone into the house, and certainly would’nt have taken the time to shower. She is very weird.

      • Smalldeer

        The amount of visible blood was very small, the postal police who were first on the scene (for cell phones) were not alarmed enough to break down the door, even though Amanda & Raffaele asked them to.

        • andy

          Smalldeer,you know better than that,I would have thought. And then 8 people voted you up,that’s almost a scandal right there!!

          Filomena demanded the postal police knock down the door but they refused,citing legal restrictions on them.One of the boyfriends (Laura’s or Filomena’s?) then kicked down the door.
          There is some question about Amanda’s assertions regarding how often Meredith kept her door locked.One version has Filomena flipping her lid upon hearing Amanda state that Meredith always locked her door,even for showers.Amanda says now that there was a language misunderstanding about that.At any rate Filomena was certain that Meredith only locked her door when off to the UK,and since she was not away it was alarming.How Amanda could think differently than Filomena regarding this,who was the head of the household and presumably would know,is worth considering.
          There is also the pertinent question of why A & R,who say they tried to kick down the door themselves,didn’t apprise the postal police of this fact?

      • Ria

        @Confused, the front door was open when she arrived home, since it didn’t always shut properly she didn’t think much of it. There were 2 small droplets of blood on the faucet which ended up being hers from days ago after she got several piercings on her ears. Nothing in the house looked unusual and she had no idea Meredith was in her room, stabbed to death.

        As she leaving, she saw feces floating in the other flatmates toilet…that is what really struck her because she knew none of the room mates would leave a toilet unflushed. Then she felt creeped out but was already leaving. She called one of the flatmates on her way to Rafael’s and she is the one who became alarmed about a break in…that’s when Amanda started to take things more seriously. Rafael figured it was nothing to worry about and came home with her to check things out. They found the window of another flatmates had been broken, a large rock was laying on the floor.

        I’m reading Amanda’s book right now. I’ll agree that she’s a little odd (Asperger’s comes to mind!) but I do not believe she murdered Meredith. The real killer is behind bars, all the evidence points to him, the break in was his usual style and he’d been caught breaking into other places just weeks before. He was friends with the guys who lived downstairs so had plenty of opportunity to know when the girls were gone. Meredith probably came home while he was in the house and things escalated from there.

        • Confused

          Thanks Ria- I guess I should get her book. I didn’t think she killed her- I too believe they have the murderer in jail. I just didnt’ understand someone finding their front door broken into, and then taking a shower. If the front door normally didn’t shut properly, and it wasn’t really broken – than that makes sense.

          • Confused

            “then that makes sense”…..grammar people- don’t freak

        • skykm81

          I am actually reading the book now myself. I agree with you completely. People continue to get the facts mixed up. I realize that she was only 20 and in the book she says that she wanted to handle this herself and so she didn’t call the U.S. Embassy. It is really unfortunate that this happened to her. I do not believe she did it, I think she was only trying to help.

        • andy

          Ria,you’re swallowing bilge water and you will drown shortly.I pray that you will save yourself.Here,let me give you a hand:

          Amanda says herself that the blood drips (hers) that were on the faucet were not there the day before (Nov.1). Meredith left the flat in the afternoon and Amanda says she and Raffaele left the flat late in the afternoon,near 6 o’clock.The place was kept very clean and if Amanda had indeed dripped those spots from her drippy ears (hmmm…) days before they would have been wiped clean by one of the gals at some point,well,days before.Meredith apparently had spoken to Amanda about some small issues with cleaning and I’m sure that Amanda responded well to that and was pretty good about cleaning up.So,your “days ago” idea is wrong,most probably.
          The fact is:Amanda’s blood drops showed up at the same time Meredith’s did in that bathroom and coincidentally Meredith was lying dead in the next room with pools of blood all around her.Not to mention the broken window from the “break-in” in Filomena’s room.
          There was blood on the light switch,on the Kleenex box on the back of the toilet,blood in the sink,in the bidet and on the door.Plus,smears and a bloody footprint on the bathmat.Despite all of this she took a shower,blew dry her long hair and hung around the flat for well over an hour.There were also bloody shoe prints going from the door of Meredith’s room out to the front door of the flat.
          Italian roommates Filomena and Laura are on record as being amazed that Amanda was in there showering and primping for the day with all of this around and a dead body in a room.And now we have Raffaele himself avowing his own lingering questions about what Amanda could have been doing or thinking over there.

          Amanda went into the other bathroom to borrow a hair dryer and had to have seen that feces then because the dryer was right next to the toilet.Not to mention a smell.Also,keep in mind that European toilets aren’t the same as American and the feces don’t always “float in the water”.According to Amanda the feces was sitting on the porcelain and when it slid down into the water later she was panicky (hmmm) because she thought it “had been flushed after she left for Raffaele’s”.The detectives thought she acted unusually interested in this.What is particularly suspicious (not weird) is that Amanda never flushed the toilet when she saw the feces.My bet is that 9,999 out of 10,000 people would have flushed the toilet immediately.Not Amanda.Why? Is it merely a coincidence that the feces was Guede’s.She says now that she was trying to preserve evidence for the police but she only found out about the “break-in” when she returned with Raffaele an hour later.Her story doesn’t pass the smell test,which is why investigators and roommates started to suspect her from then on.

          There are also questions about from where she called Filomena.She said it was from one place but the cell phone pings placed it at another.
          Most alarming is that she claimed she was frantically calling Meredith,trying to locate her but when she connected with her cell phone’s voice mail she didn’t leave a voice message urging her to call back.Meredith could have been nursing an espresso seven minutes away that afternoon and called back immediately.

          I’ve read Amanda’s book and found it altogether unconvincing.I don’t think there is any indication she has a mental condition I just think she acted suspiciously at all points of the investigation and so do the police in Italy.
          Rudy Guede may have been friendly with the guys downstairs but how he would have known who was home in that upstairs flat or who wasn’t before he crashed into the place at such a visible spot early in the evening isn’t clear.
          Of course,she could be totally innocent but I doubt it very much.

          • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

            Very well written Andy. Yes, Knox does not outwardly show any mental disorders but it is true that psychopaths appear to be very normal when interacting with others. Also along with a lack of empathy (as exhibited by Knox on several occasions) another common trait of psychopaths is inappropriate behavior like kissing, telling jokes and laughing at a murder scene.

      • Panama Mike

        I would’ve, I would’ve, I would’ve. Everybody reacts differently to situations. Doesn’t make I would’ve right.

        • andy

          Everyone else who knew Meredith acted similarly,grief stricken,somber,attending the candlelight vigil,etc.
          Not Amanda.She seemed annoyed that her schooling would be interrupted.

        • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

          She didn’t react normally to Meredith’s death because she is a psychopath. A psychopath has no empathy, ro remorse and is extremely self centered. Also inappropriate behavior like kissing, telling jokes and laughing at the murder scene, clowning around in the police station, her daily rictus smile in the courtroom, her daily inappropriate dress in the courtroom, her story changing numerous times and more are all well-known traits of a criminal psychopath.

      Dead wrong,”Chase”.She never broke into Meredith’s room and found her body.Where did you get that from? There was also more than a “spot of blood on the floor”.
      Maybe before you comment you should have the slightest inkling of the story,not to mention reading the testimony,which you couldn’t possibly have read,judging by your comment here.
      She just may HAVE known Meredith’s corpse was in there when she showered.There is good reason to think this.

      Teri, where could have Raffaele gone? What country would allow an illegal immigrant convicted killer stay, and yes I know it was a kangaroo court. We should remember that Nencini is being investigated. For him to say that if Raffaele got on the stand he could have saved himself is unbelievable. If the verdict was so unsure that it could be swayed by spontaneous Raffaele statements and not the weighing of evidence shows the incredible bias by this judge and that it was not a fair trial, because there was certainly reasonable doubt.

  • bobbyd4999

    The only thing that’s true about this case is that the investigation was a complete clusterf*ck.

  • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

    After Amanda Knox stabbed Meredith with Rudy, she showered in order to get Meredith’s blood off of her. That’s why they found Meredith’s blood with Amanda Knox’s DNA in it. After that she went to the nearby store and bought a mop and some bleach and then cleaned up the crime scene as fast as she could, and it almost worked, but she missed some areas. She is obviously guilty and for her extradition, she will first be incarcerated in a tough US federal prison in about a year from now. Read all about it here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/italy/10611826/Amanda-Knox-could-face-detention-in-tough-US-jail.html

    • dallas

      Joe Zoo, that is ridiculous. You cannot clean up your DNA and leave Guede’s everywhere. And where and when did they find Meredith’s blood with Amanda’s DNA in it? I sure missed that.

      • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

        No, that is profoundly incorrect. It’s actually possible to remove dna with bleach. As bleach contains sodium hypochlorite, an extremely corrosive chemical
        that can break the hydrogen bonds between DNA base pairs and thus
        degrade or “denature” a DNA sample. The cops found Miranda’s blood in the bathtub drain, in the sink and on the floor and ALL samples contained Knox’s DNA. This came from Knox’s bloody hands and bloody body after she murdered Meredith. That is why she took the shower.

        Also Knox’s dna was found on the handle of the knife and Kircher’s dna was found on the blade. The cops know that Raffaele and Knox ‘cleaned’ that knife with bleach just like they tried to clean up the crime scene.

        And finally…

        Q: How did Amanda Knox know about Meredith’s fatal injury before the police made that public information?

        A: Because she, Raffaele and Rudy killed Meredith Kircher. Duh!

          DUH!!! You sure are dumb

          • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

            Oh, that was so profound. So do you have another answer to the last question? Nope. You don’t. Case closed.

    • Ria

      The mop was one they already owned which Amanda took to Rafael’s to clean up the water from his broken pipe. There were no receipts for bleach during that time. You shouldn’t get your facts from British gossip tabloids.

      • Questions

        Yes, I always move a mop between buildings right after a murder! Happens all the time! Totally innocent!

        • Ria

          So the mop was used to clean up blood, is that what you’re inferring? Why wasn’t it brought into evidence then?

          • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

            An eyewitness working at the store that morning testified under oath
            that she was 100% certain that Amanda Knox bought a mop and some bleach
            very early in the morning. After trying to clean up the crime scene, they discarded the mop and the bleach and the police never found it. Why didn’t they also throw away the knife? I don’t know that answer. Probably they just screwed it all up. But when in an emotional panic, people do very strange things. Like kiss, tell jokes and laugh with each other while at the crime scene. Watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS9PtoLiM4M

          • Smalldeer

            Quintavalle, the “witness” that claims he saw Amanda that morning, and that she headed toward
            the cleaning products.Which is odd since Officer Volturno went around asking about Raffaele and Amanda a few days after the murder and Quintavalle gave no indication of having seen her that day. Neither of the other clerks saw Amanda that morning, there are no receipts or store records of her being there, no cctv video of her there – basically, NO OTHER EVIDENCE of her being there other than Quintavalle’s about-face one year later. It should also be known that a journalist Antioco Fois, “discovered” Quintavalle. It was the same journalists who discovered Curatolo “Toto” and made of him the “super-witness” for Mignini. NONE of the witnesses initially seen or heard anything until they were discovered by Antioco Fois.

            .

          • andy

            Joe,this is incorrect about the purchase,but it is suspicious on its face that a mop would be transported to a flat (Raffaele’s) that had a water spill/leak the night before.almost 15 hours before.The guy had a cleaning lady,neighbors,stores nearby and could probably afford a mop,not to mention the fact that the water would have likely been well cleaned up with a bunch of towels or whatnot when the spill occurred.The idea that these two were helpless in the face of a lousy water pileup is absurd and reeks of contrivance.
            Maybe they did indeed purchase a mop she was lugging around as a replacement for the original one that was used to clean up and then discarded.Her veracity is certainly lacking in general,so it’s not out of the question.
            Your point about panic is well taken and explains things like the footprint.Has anyone ever come up with a reasonable explanation for a single bloody (MK) footprint in the middle of a room? Where are the others leading to or from that one?
            Was Guede hopping around barefooted on one leg between getting back into his skippies and leaving bloody SHOE prints right out of the door?
            Looks like more evidence of a staged scenario badly botched.
            Plus,that footprint conforms very neatly to Sollecito’s right foot.

      • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

        So what if there was no receipt? That doesn’t prove nor disprove anything. An eyewitness working at the store that morning testified under oath that she was 100% certain that Amanda Knox bought a mop and some bleach very early in the morning. Knox then attempted to clean up the crime scene and but didn’t get it all. She also staged the break in and locked Meredith’s bedroom door. She then panicked and bolted out of the house and left the front door open because her hands were full. She then took the mop, bleach and murder weapon to Raffaele’s for further cleaning. A very amateur “emotional” murder, indeed.

        • Ria

          Didn’t get it all? What part of her DNA did she not get? There wasn’t any other than what would normally be there from living there and sharing a bathroom with Meredith. There was no blood evidence on the supposed murder weapon and the DNA on there was too small to be measured per protocol. How was she able to clean up her and Raffaele’s DNA yet leave Rudy’s?

          It’s scary how much people buy into tabloid gossip before learning the real facts of a case. The eyewitnesses in the case were a joke, one was a homeless man who had been employed by Mignini as a witness 3 times. Mignini himself should have been suspended long ago.

          • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

            By simply sharing a bathroom, one doesn’t normally combine one’s DNA with another ones blood. But when there has been a brutal murder, this naturally happens. As for Rudy’s DNA being there, well obviously, they didn’t clean the room enough. Very simple. Why are you are such a brick?

          • andy

            What about the mixture of Amanda’s DNA AND Meredith’s blood in Filomena’s room,plus the fact that neither Guede’s DNA nor fingerprints were found in that room he had supposedly entered and ransacked?
            Remember,Amanda and Filomena both said that the door to that room was closed until noon on November 2.

    Ever hear of DNA, Rudy Guede’s found everywhere, including inside of Kercher, whereas Amanda’s Knox was nowhere to be found. Italian law and justice is a joke. Unquestionably Guede is guilty and receives 16 years for murder and is eligible to be released this year, that is truly an injustice to Kercher and her family.
    I do not understand Amanda Knox’s actions, all I know is what the DNA or evidence tells me. And I applaud her finally making the right decision and resisting extradition.

    • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

      Nope. They found samples of Meredith’s blood with Amanda Knox’s DNA inside of it in the drain of the bath tub, in the sink and on the floor of the bathroom. That is why she took the shower after they killed Meredith. It is all very obvious and she is guilty of murder.

      • Ria

        It was in the bidet, not the bath tub nor the sink or the floor. Amanda’s skin cells were found in the bidet due to using it. Meredith’s blood was in there because Rudy used the bidet to clean himself off. Hence, the “mixture” of DNA.

        • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

          Nope. Wrong again. You should watch this documentary by the BBC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS9PtoLiM4M

        • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

      Thanks to those who provided the link to BBC’s expose’ on the trial and coverage of events. Amanda’s inconsistencies are certainly unusual, but not necessarily an indication of guilt. What is strange is the ineptitude of the forensic police and the entire police investigation. How could they have destroyed the laptop hard drives when the hard drives could have vindicated them and confirmed their whereabouts at the time of the murders? That alone seems implausible with our ability to retrieve information from even badly damaged drives.

  • jrpppp

    It’s weird how first the Italians, and later a segment of the Brits still cling to this crackpot conspiracy theory of AK and RS being involved, based on a manufactured theory spun from a coerced false confession, invented by a mentally unbalanced prosecutor with a history of spinning elaborate unfounded crackpot conspiracy theories. The tabloid’s exploitation and vilification of AK undoubtedly plays a role. But so does the Kercher’s unreasonable and unconscionable support for the continued persecution of AK and RS. No one but Guede could have committed this crime, by virtue of DNA and physical evidence. I’m not worried AK will go to Italy. I’m worried for RS, and I believe he will be returned to prison for a crime he didn’t commit.

  • nsrncgy

      • Smalldeer

        They smoked pot, there was no alcohol involved. There is no motive, or logic to “sex game gone wrong”. Amanda had just met Raffaele, they were still in the “I want to spend all my time with you” stage.

        • andy

          Not even a small beer,deer? And why do you say “pot”? Raffaele was a hashish fiend,Italy is crawling with hashish and Amanda liked vodka,she said so.There seems to be a tendency to diminish the hashish part of the scenario.It’s much stronger than weed and maybe Amanda wasn’t ready for the sustained usage Raffaele would have ushered into her life.I would guess they were smoking it the European way,mixed with tobacco and you get dizzy and spaced out,almost sick,as you start using it that way.Throw in some vodka or rye maybe a sniff or two of marching powder and you could have the perfect storm of brain altering craziness,especially if a disagreement broke out.
          How do you know there was no hard alcohol involved that night? Amanda and Raffaele assured you?
          Amanda was a frisky pup (people noticed that she was an aggressor and Raffaele was meek and besotted with her).She just might have been out and about that night (Raffaele did fluctuate on this) and hooked up with Rudy (she did say that she had met Patrick at the hoop court before bringing HIM to the flat,a place Rudy hung out at).Maybe Amanda was going to have a fling with Guede, brought him by and something went haywire with Meredith.Raffaele was brought in later at Amanda’s urging to stage the scene,perhaps.

            Awesome analysis. A very likely scenario too. Thank you Andy.

    • andy

      For that matter,any motive for the authorities to frame the American? Not to mention the Italian young man?

  • patrick christ

    What Raffaele is really thinking about is they say Amanda is guilty “because she accused an innocent guy”, and he did not do that. He does not think she is guilty. I would not blame him to say, I think Amanda went out but I was super sleepy and not really sure. He does not have Amanda’s protections.

  • Mary

    At this point, the only thing I’ve learned is don’t get in trouble in Italy. In fact, I may just cross if off my list of places to visit.
    The Italians are proving to be completely incompetent with regards to their legal system and on a “witch-hunt” to persecute an American (whether she is innocent or not). Fact is, they do not have enough evidence to convict this girl…not even close.

      What? Uhm, in case you didn’t get the memo, Amanda Knox has now been convicted two (2) times for the murder of Meredith Kercher. And it’s not “Italy” murder is illegal throughout the world. I strongly advise against it and committing any other crime for that matter. Hello?

  • Julie

    How can anyone believe this girl? shame on us for being such fool.

    • Seth

      Let me guess, you just KNOW she’s guilty because of her eyes or how she talks right? Even though all scientific evidence points to her innocence. I love how everyone who thinks she’s guilty is a wannabe, amateur psychologist and expert in body language.

      • andy

        Actually,if you look at her during certain parts of her interview with Diane Sawyer she looks like she’s not leveling,particularly when Sawyer (no Mike Wallace,her) asks point blank if she’s holding back anything she knows in her book.Check that one out,it’s clear to me that she’s lying and I had her pegged as totally innocent before that.
        .A little bit during her recent Twinkie munch with Robin Roberts holding her hand,as well.

      Hey Idiot, believe the evidence. Pretty much, the only fool is you.

  • Alison Jones Harris

    She has refused to go back to Italy…so therefore, it means nothing that she was convicted the 2nd time around correct? Don’t everyone start getting pissy about it either….its just a simple question, I really don’t know! :)

    • Seth

      Technically, Italy can request her extradition once the verdict is rubber stamped by the Italian Supreme Court. There are differing viewpoints on whether or not the U.S. would entertain the idea of extraditing, with the general opinion being it will be more of a political decision than a legal one. I’m honestly not sure what would happen. There is a lot of evidence of judicial misconduct though.

      • Alison Jones Harris

        Thank you! :)

    • Panama Mike

      You’re right. It means nothing. If they hadn’t gotten the results they wanted after trial #2, there would certainly been trial #3.

    • Ria

      They didn’t let Rudy out, his sentence was reduced to 16 years. Not long enough considering how heinous his crime was. I’m sure he’ll do it again once he’s free.

  • Jenn M

    theres no evidence to say she is guilty, none. The Italian courts explain this away by saying the DNA was all tainted. Ok so the DNA is inadmissible, what else is there? Nothing. Her alibi is the sex buddy she had, I mean they knew each other shortly, and thank goodness Know was with him, because she would have gotten executed if she didn’t have a firm alibi.

    • segeny

      So you are sooooooooooo much smarter than Prof. Dershowitz? Better pack your bags and head up to Harvard to depose him.

    • andy

      Fact is,Raffaele never provided her with a firm alibi in court.And now he’s doing his famed folding act as the curtain closes.

  • Anthony

    This is from Allen Dershowitz, a Harvard Law Professor.

    “I would say that there are thousands of Americans in jail today on the basis of far less evidence than there is against Amanda Knox,” Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor, said.

    “One, she first admitted she was at the crime scene and then denied it. Second, she falsely accused somebody who was totally innocent of committing the murder. Third, she turned off her cell phone during the relative period of time. Fourth, there was DNA found underneath the bra strap and on the knife.

    “It wasn’t enough to establish conclusively that it was hers, but it certainly pointed in that direction. There was a pool of blood with a footprint and the man who was convicted of the murder blamed it on her, testified against her, the court found that it couldn’t have been done by one person, it had to be done by at least two people.”

    But whether Italy can compel Knox — dubbed “Foxy Knoxy” by the press — to return is up in the air, according to Dershowitz.

    “Legally, she should be required if her conviction is affirmed, but she has been conducting an incredibly successful media campaign,” he said.

    “I have to tell you, in 50 years of practicing law, I had never seen a more one-sided presentation by the media in the United States of the case. Everybody is saying there’s no evidence against her and she’s totally innocent. It’s just not true.”

    In America, everybody’s ignoring the victim, everybody is pretending as if the Italian court system is the Iranian court system, and as if they made up all of the evidence against her.”

    As to why he believes that is so, Dershowitz said:

    “One word: she’s pretty and she doesn’t look like she did it and Americans care about what people look like. She’s the all-American young woman and we don’t care about the evidence.”

    “If I were the family of the victim here, I would be outraged at the way the American media is treating this case.”

    Likewise, Dershowitz added, Knox should be outraged by the coverage of the case in Italy.

    “They’re treating this case as if she’s Al Capone, as if there’s no question about her innocence or guilt. It’s become black and white. [In] Italy, she’s guilty beyond any doubt. In America, she’s innocent beyond any doubt,” he said.

    “The truth is it’s a very close case. There’s a lot of evidence of guilt, there’s some evidence of innocence. On balance, it’s more likely than not that she did, but there’s not enough evidence to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt.”

    After the new verdict was delivered, Knox said in a statement:

    • Smalldeer

      She didn’t, everything she knew was what she was told by Luca Altieri
      and Paola Grande as they were driven to the police station that day. Luca testified to this in court.

      • andy

        BULLSHIT and that’s really small beer for someone posing as an expert on this.Until the autopsy no one could know the particulars of her death,whether she died instantly or suffered for many,many agonizing minutes as it was determined she did.
        You really have to stop finessing basic facts of this case to engender sympathy for your gal.You must know better.
        It’s downright offensive to the victim to misrepresent her life and death.

        • Smalldeer

          It’s not bullshit, he did testify to it. I finessed no facts, my statement was entirely true. What’s bullshit is your claim, anyone who has watched an episode of CSI or ANY real-life crime show KNOWS if someone’s throat is cut they are going to die quickly and in a lot of pain, You don’t need foreknowledge of a murder to suss that out.

    I believe she is innocent, and I watched a re-run of Dateline last night on ID Discovery that really cemented if for me. Why was her DNA NO WHERE to be found at the crime scene. With a crime that violent that would not be possible. Merideth was stabbed- why doesn’t Amanda have NO WOUNDS on her hands? She is innocent. Hopefully the USA protects her

    • http://www.truejustice.org/ Dr. Joseph Zoo

      The police photographed Amanda Knox’s neck where there is a scratch on her adam’s apple that was not there the day before the murder. You can see it here: http://i.imgur.com/Sje75.jpg Also one of her earrings was ripped out during the attack on Meredith. That is why Knox’s lamp was found in Meredith’s room as they used it to find her earring. Also her bloody footprint was found on the pillow that was placed beneath
      Meredith’s head. And finally, a sliced off portion of Meredith’s bra clasp would
      also reveal DNA from both Sollecito and Knox on it. The defense
      complaint of “contamination” was struck down in the latest trial thus
      proving that both Sollecito and Knox were, in fact, inside of
      Meredith’s bedroom when she was killed. Based on all of that evidence and more, they returned the correct conviction of guilty.

  • Tam

    The evidence Italian prosecutors rely most heavily on is circumstantial. They question why she didn’t run in the opposite direction or inquire when she saw specs of blood on the sink and bathmat. I have lived with roommates in college and graduate school for years and never questioned when I would find the occasional smear or speckle of blood on the sink as it is completely logical to think that perhaps they cut themselves shaving or had a nose bleed, as I myself have had plenty of times. The mind often minimizes issues and going to the most horrible scenario isn’t something most people automatically turn to. What she is guilty of is being a young, somewhat sheltered and naive American student. Nothing more, nothing less.

    • andy

      But Tam,before you go into the tank neck deep,the fact that Amanda didn’t quickly clean up these blood drips (which she claims she supposed were from her ears) AND didn’t flush the crapper is what is highly suspect.Especially on top of all the other circumstances at the home.

      It was an all girls flat and cleanliness was a matter taken seriously,not a dorm room full of redneck male freshmen away from home for the first time.Let’s just say that Meredith wasn’t dead in her room and was actually on her way back from shopping.This means that Amanda set off for Rafaelle’s leaving shit in a toilet for Meredith to come home to (yes,i know it wasn’t their particular bathroom but the flat really isn’t that big).This,unfortunately,is a further indication of staging as who would do that to a friend?

      • Smalldeer

        No, it’s not a sign of staging. Why would she clean someone else’s toilet? The blood in the bathroom was minimal, it wasn’t even enough to concern the Postal Police.

  • docfjs

    Well, Hell is where all the police are Germans, the cooks are English and the judges are Italian. The US should refuse extradition on the basis of double jeopardy and cruel and unusual punishment.

  • Sandie

    I don’t think she did it. Shoot, when I take a shower, I’m in there for a long time. Now I can’t say she might not know more that she knows though. I do think it is funny how he is just now saying this. Seems he would have said that a long time ago to stay out of prison to begin with. If she did take a shower to get rid of blood or whatever. They would have found some in the bathroom or shower stall I would think. Maybe he is just doing a lot of hind sight thing and trying to figure things out for himself. Not sure. A lot of what ifs and should of, could of’s going on.

    • Seth

      What are you smoking? Their court system is a train-wreck. They don’t sequester or admonish jurors. They use evidence from other trials when the defendant is not represented. They ignore independent expert testimony.Oh yeah and they allow the jury to hear a false confession, even though the Italians supreme court said it violated her right to an attorney. It would take an encyclopedia to explain everything wrong with this trial and Italy’s courts.

  • joseal

    After The Fox, isn’t just a movie but the long arm of the law reaching her, even if it’s too late for the victim. Hope this will also happens in the two Orlando FL crimes…

  • Violet Miller

    The US has no business agreeing to extradition. Not only is this double jeopardy which should negate any question of her returning just as some countries will not extradite to US unless we promise no death penalty, but for the life of me I cannot understand this witch hunt. Are Italians really this stupid? They have the killer’s DNA, they have the killer in jail so why are they so dead set on jailing these 2 innocent people? The whole scenario is so ludicrous! It makes them seem laughably stupid.

    • Taishanese

      It all depends on what is in the treaty and how the treaty defines double jeopardy in Italy. Meaning, it may not be defined as a true double jeopardy as legally defined in the US.

      And the US has motivation to honor extradition whenever possible because the US, by far, extradites more people than any other country.

      Unfortunately, there is a slim possibility where Knox can be extradited.

      • andy

        The USA has no legitimate reason not to extradite a convicted murderer.No amount of hysterical xenophobic posturing and internet jive will effect this.Try telling the UK to soft soap the Kerchers with some nonsense about being helpless to influence the decision.Won’t happen.
        What a slap in the face it would be to the Kerchers.I would be ashamed as an American father of a beloved daughter if that happens.
        Get real,Violet Miller.

        • Smalldeer

          Andy, why do you suppose the Kercher’s have no problem with Rudy Guede’s early release? If it had been my daughter I would be insisting Rudy serve his FULL sentence. But we’ve heard nothing about that, we’ve only heard that they want Amanda Knox. You do know that the Kercher’s have a civil suit against Amanda and Raffaele, but not Rudy. They also will receive nothing if Amanda and Raffaele were found innocent.

    Lets say she DID know her friend was dead in the next room. I agree showering is ‘odd’ however when you understand shock.. it can be somewhat excused. I have known people to find out their child has died and the first thing they do is hoover. So much research has been done on shock and they don’t fully understand it yet. Saying that, i am NOT saying she is innocent, nor am i saying she is guilty. I have just seen shock do some strange things to people. Shock causing you to shower while your friend lays in bits in the next room..that’s pushing it BUT it is possible..

      It’s obviously a hickey. Her ears were infected BEFORE the murder, and her shoe prints were NOT found on the pillow case. ALL shoe prints are Rudy’s, they have the same tread.
