Tag Archives: Meredith Kercher
Amanda Know, who is now 24, is very hopeful that she will be returning to the United States and released from the Italian prison where she is currently serving a 26-year sentence for the murder of her former roommate, Meredith Kercher. She has been heard making remarks about them finally believing her, which is a huge relief, I’m sure.
Knox and her boyfriend at the time, Raffaele Sollecito, now 27 were both convicted of the murder of Meredith Kercher. The victim, Kercher, was found half naked with her throat cut in a brutal death. Although both Knox and Sollecito had denied any involvement, investigators had believed they were acting oddly happy during the discovery and focused in on them as suspects.
The original evidence, two items that were found in the Kercher’s room, is what prosecutors had to go on as far as convicting both individuals. They have now found that not only is there a tremendous amount of evidence pointing in a different direction, the evidence they do have against Knox and Sollecito is now being seen as unreliable. In fact, other than those two items that are shaky evidence, there is nothing else to link the couple to to death of the Meredith Kercher.
There is another man, drifter rather, who has been linked to this case from the beginning. Unbelievably, there was a numerous amount of evidence built up against him, but it goes unrecognized by the courts. Not only was his semen found inside her vagina, but there was also a hand print of his on the wall in Meredith Kercher’s room that was made in the victim’s own blood.
While that may seem sufficient enough, there was also feces on toilet paper from the drifter, which was left next to an unflushed toilet. It’s as if he purposely left evidence at the scene of the crime. And the icing on the cake is what happened to him after Kercher was viciously murdered; He fled to Germany. It is ridiculous that two innocent individuals have been serving four years for a crime that was very obviously committed by someone else. And they knew who this someone else was! How absolutely awful.
Hoping for the best and vindication for Amanda Knox, Raffaele Sollecito, and the families of all involved.
