Did Amanda Knox Kill Meredith Kercher?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Amanda Knox was convicted of murdering Meredith Kercher in 2009 but was just released in October of 2011 so people are a bit confused as to what’s really going on?

Some people are calling this a disgrace and think the only reason the conviction was overturned is because of Knox’s PR campaign which was started by her family. The news of this story hit households nationwide in the United States and when the Lifetime original movie “Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy” aired, the case got even more national attention than the family could have imagined.

I watched the movie and my impression was “she is guilty” because they had so much evidence against her, at least so it seemed. There were irregularities in her initial story according to Italian police that were investigating the case. All signs were pointing to Knox being guilty with the help of her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito.

Towards the end of the movie they showed some things that made me totally change my mind of Amanda Knox. After thinking she did it the whole time, Knox’s lawyers were shown talking about the case and they pointed out the lack of incriminating evidence they had. Also, the Italian prosecutor at the time was being held on indictments for several different charges that pointed to him falsely arresting people on several different cases.

Who Did Kill Meredith Kercher?

A local drug dealer name of Rudy Guede was also convicted in October of 2008 with the murder of Meredith Kercher. When first arrested Guede admitted to the crime and made a statement saying that Knox and her boyfriend had nothing to do with the violent crime. Not even a week later he changed his testimony and claimed he was innocent, stating that we was in the bathroom while Knox and Sollecito murdered Kercher.

Rudy Guede’s DNA was found on the body of Kercher along with his blood by her body, but still this did not convince the Italian prosecutor of Knox’s innocence. There was no solid forensic evidence that pointed to Amanda Knox being the one who committed the murder and that was a big deciding factor in her and Sollecito’s release from prison.

What Is Amanda Knox Doing Now?

Since her release Knox has returned to Seattle, Washington with her family. At a press conference she told the press that her intentions were to just spend some time with her family to catch up with everything. I saw in a report somewhere that Knox has intentions of contacting Sollecito at some point also.

Although she is home free right now, under Italian law there is a period of time that she could still be convicted of the murder again and sent back to prison. Amanda Knox news stories have flooded the internet and people’s opinions are different everywhere you go, I think it should b interesting to see how long this story stays in the media.
