Amanda Knox was convicted in the Italian courts of killing her roommate in 2007 with her then boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito. She spent the past five years in an Italian prison and was finally released on October 3, 2011 on appeal that finally acquitted and freed her.
In a strange turn of events, as it has been since the inception of this trial, Italy’s Supreme Court ruled that Knox must be retried for her Brit roommate Meredith Kercher’s murder and refused to vacate her conviction for slander, of which she accused the Italian police of slapping her across the head.
Is Amanda Knox innocent or was she a victim? And what role did she play in the death of her former roommate? She has been a subject of interest for years with a movie made about this case and countless hours of TV coverage on her trial. How could this sweet looking young woman be involved in a murder?
I have been closely following this case for years. My instinct tells me that Amanda Knox was involved in the murder on some level. I believe that there were drugs and alcohol involved and a sex game ensured, where Ivory Coast drifter, Rudy Guede (who is still serving 16 years in Italian prison after his latest appeal) and Knox and her Italian boyfriend, Sollecito got carried away. It was probably an accident and they covered it up.
The story feels like the Natalie Holloway death with so many conflicting stories and lies about the one person who is not around to tell their story. These people are protecting one another and covering up their tracks.
Judge for yourself, as Amanda Knox begins her book circuit with her latest publication, “Waiting to Be Heard.” She is also appearing in an interview tonight with Diane Sawyer on ABC at 9pm CST.
Is Amanda Know an innocent victim or a cold blooded killer? I say killer.
