Amanda Knox

A reader posted the question:

I know this is completely off topic but do you get any feelings on the Amanda Knox trail? I just feel that she didn’t kill her roommate and the Italian government railroaded her. They didn’t even have evidence of DNA? Curious to what everyone thinks…

Amanda Knox is guilty of one thing — naiveté.  She should have left Italy when she had the chance. She believed she could get a fair trial, that was a witch trial. The prosecutor was known for being seriously insane, basically accusing people of things like devil worship, etc. It’s a good story that the people and the press became attached to, a great hollywood style script that is absurd as one of those bad horror films. I do not feel she was guilty of having anything to do with her room mates murder. She may have been guilty of being a naive college girl who was experimenting with love, sexuality and the belief that truth always prevails (which is actually very rarely the case in the heat of a frenzied moment like the one she was caught up in.) But none of this has anything to do with her murdering her room-mate. The whole thing feels more than absurd. I believe it was trumped up by the psycho prosecutor to make an international name for himself.

On a side note I’ve been to Italy and had stuff stolen along with the entire group of people I was with. The people in charge literally  had to bribe the police to take a report (which we had to have to get the insurance money.) The police carry automatic weapons on their backs… let’s just say it’s different from here. Perhaps Amanda didn’t take that into account when everyone told her to flee the country. I think she thought she would get a fair trial and stay with her boyfriend in a country she more than likely had fond memories of other than the horror of what happened to her room mate.

All that being said the people are amazing, the food the best in the world and the police I met were very helpful and kind. It’s just the government has some issues… naked young ladies anyone?

Best wishes,

Denise

There’s an interesting comment listed down below detailing the case against Amanda Knox. There is compelling evidence to suggest she did it. It’s hard to read all things involved and often why if I’m not personally involved, I don’t comment on public cases unless I have gotten a strong hit. In this case I have gotten mixed messages from the beginning and it’s possible that I could have picked up on the ruling rather than the truth of whether she did it or not. In which case she most likely will not be convicted even if she did do it. I do think she was naive about her situation and got a strong sense of her disconnection from the whole thing, perhaps this is because she’s a sociopath? I can’t say that I have a direct line here. I’d need a piece of clothing or something to get through all the projections of other people getting in the way of my ability to read her.

And to address one of the other people who posted about what most psychics were saying in regards to this case, most garden variety psychics go with with whatever theory the police have. Most psychics also thought that Jon Benette Ramsey was murdered by her parents and that the economy was just fine, too. I’ve worked with thousands of “psychics” and frankly the people who read this blog are more in touch with the divine and are more psychic than those who boast of being psychic. There are only a handful of professional psychics who are truly psychic and among those who are famous there are some excellent ones and some scammers, too. Claiming psychic ability really means nothing. A lot of crazy people think they are Jesus, call themselves psychic, and whatever, but the proof is in a person’s record. No psychic is always correct, but if they are right most of the time that’s proof enough that they are tapped into something.

    … so are you familiar with xtrology’s blog? She says her chart aligns with this kind of thoughtless behavior (she says she did participate.) Also, other psychics online have said they also feel she was a part of this horrific crime. I have faith in the people that have said such things, and even though I want to believe Amanda Knox had nothing to do with this, I also know unlikely things happen more than the public likes to see.

    Would love to know your opinion on these counter-opinions. Thanx!

      I’m very familiar with Xtrology’s blog, and I followed her for a few years. after awhile I found her predictions to be so-so.. Last summer, I stopped reading Melanie’s blog because I felt she was being too subjective and not using her psychic ability to which she admitted she is NOT psychic.

  2. The evidence against Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito is overwhelming.

    Amanda Knox’s DNA was found on:

    1. On the double DNA knife and a number of independent forensic experts – Dr. Patrizia Stefanoni, Dr. Renato Biondo and Professor Francesca Torricelli – categorically stated that Meredith’s DNA was on the blade.

    2. Mixed with Meredith’s blood on the ledge of the basin.

    3. Mixed with Meredith’s blood on the bidet.

    4. Mixed with Meredith blood on a box of Q Tip cotton swabs.

    5. Mixed with Meredith’s blood in the hallway.

    6. Mixed with Meredith’s blood on the floor of Filomena’s room, where the break-in was staged.

    7. On Meredith’s bra according to Dr. Stefanoni AND Raffaele Sollecito’s forensic expert, Professor Vinci.

    Amanda Knox’s footprints were found set in Meredith’s blood in two places in the hallway of the new wing of the cottage. One print was exiting her own room, and one print was outside Meredith’s room, facing into the room. These bloody footprints were only revealed under luminol.

    A woman’s bloody shoeprint, which matched Amanda Knox’s foot size, was found on a pillow under Meredith’s body. The bloody shoeprint was incompatible with Meredith’s shoe size.

    Two independent imprint experts categorically excluded the possibility that the bloody footprint on the blue bathmat could belong to Rudy Guede. Lorenzo Rinaldi stated:

    “You can see clearly that this bloody footprint on the rug does not belong to Mr. Guede, but you can see that it is compatible with Sollecito.”

    The other imprint expert print expert testified that the bloody footprint on the blue bathmat matched the precise characteristics of Sollecito’s foot.

    An abundant amount of Raffaele Sollecito’s DNA was found on Meredith’s bra clasp. Sollecito must have applied considerable pressure to the clasp in order to have left so much DNA. The hooks on the clasp were damaged which confirms that Sollecito had gripped them tightly.

    According to Judge Massei and Judge Cristiani, Rudy Guede’s visible bloody footprints lead straight out of Meredith’s room and out of the house. He didn’t lock Meredith’s door, remove his trainers, go into Filomena’s room or the bathroom that Meredith and Knox shared.

    He didn’t scale the vertical wall outside Filomena’s room or gain access through the window. The break-in was clearly staged. This indicates that somebody who lived at the cottage was trying to deflect attention away from themselves and give the impression that a stranger had broken in and killed Meredith.

    Guede had no reason to stage the break-in and there was no physical evidence that he went into Filomena’s room or the bathroom. The scientific police found a mixture of Knox’s DNA and Meredith’s blood on the floor in Filomena’s room. They also found irrefutable proof that Knox and Sollecito had tracked Meredith’s blood into the bathroom.

    The murder dynamic implicates Knox and Sollecito.

    Barbie Nadeau wrote the following:

    “Countless forensic experts, including those who performed the autopsies on Kercher’s body, have testified that more than one person killed her based on the size and location of her injuries and the fact that she didn’t fight back—no hair or skin was found under her fingernails.”

    Judge Paolo Micheli claimed that Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito knew precise details about Meredith’s murder that they could have only known if they were present when she was killed.

    Amanda Knox voluntarily admitted that she involved in Meredith’s murder in her handwritten note to the police on 6 November 2007. She stated on at least four separate occasions that she was at the cottage when Meredith was killed. She also claimed that Sollecito was at the cottage.

    Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito both gave multiple conflicting alibis and lied repeatedly. Their lies were exposed by telephone and computer records, and by CCTV footage. Neither Knox nor Sollecito have credible alibis for the night of the murder despite three attempt each. At the trial, Sollecito refused to corroborate Knox’s alibi that she was at his apartment.

    Legal expert Stefano Maffei stated the following:

    “There were 19 judges who looked at the evidence over the course of two years, faced with decisions on pre-trial detention, review of such detention, committal to trial, judgment on criminal responsibility. They all agreed, at all times, that the evidence was overwhelming.”

    1. Naive, Jr. says:

      Harry Rag uses his intellect, but he doesn’t have experience. If he wants to judge a murder case, he needs far more knowledge of the real world. He lacks wisdom and knowledge of human character.

  3. janice says:

    Harry Rag is aptly named–his sole purpose is to “harass Amanda all over the internet and his “evidence” comes from and only belongs in a “rag”–a disreputable newspaper.

    My psychic prediction is the Amanda and Raffaele will be released following either their appeal or the supreme court appeal. Then witch hunters like Rag will have to find a new target for their vicious misogyny and projection.

    1. Marie says:

      you made me smile when I read your bit on Harry Rag’s interpretation of Knox’s trial. as I reading and scrolling down, my sense was this was subjective BS. Then I read your bit, and yep I agree, it’s a witch hunt.

    2. Naive, Jr. says:

      That’s not a mild judgment of Harry Rag, and I doubt that it will help him. I don’t understand why he isn’t more careful.

  4. janice says:

    Petal, you are misinformed. Amanda never said she was involved. The police browbeat her into an exercise of “imagining” what might have happened in the murder house. She was trying to be cooperative and it sadly was exploited and twisted by the police. You may have been lucky enough never to have had any encounters with cops, but they are not what you may imagine. Please go to http://www.injusticeinperugia.com for a balance to the prevalent hatemongering about this case.

    1. Petal says:

      You have no idea how much involvement I’ve had with police. Please stick to backing your own opinions rather than attacking someone whose background you don’t know.

      1. Naive, Jr. says:

        The point is quite simple: if a twenty-year-old West Coast suburban girl is interrogated in a murder case by police on another continent, not knowing the language, mentality, and situation, she better get help. Poor Amanda didn’t realise her situation. So Janice doesn’t clarify the specifics, and Petra has never been involved in a murder of her neighbor in a foreign country.

  5. There was no dna of Knox found in Kercher’s bedroom. The crime scene was unsecured for more than a month after the murder where the bra clasp was found by a police officer in an that same unsecured crime scene. Knox and Kercher shared the apt. The dna found on the blade was negligible and only consistent with it being used in a shared kitchen. And experts say the blade wasn’t even consistent with the wounds Kercher suffered. Reasonable doubt is also an Italian standard. The new judge is known for overturning convictions. Italy has a 50% overturn rate on appeal. The last prosecutor is a nut and was tried for misconduct while prosecuting this trial. Italians are embarrassed by this trial. The last judges final statements was nothing but conjecture and speculation without even a motive. She has more than sufficient grounds for an appeal. If anyone thinks she is guilty because she is pretty and American or didn’t act right after the murder, you need to get over it. She admitted to pot use to the police. I have never heard of anyone going into depraved homicidal episodes after smoking weed. And if Knox held Kercher down, how come there were no marks on Knox? Kercher had defense wounds all over, and it was a bloody scene. Forensic wise, it just makes no sense at all. Legal experts internationally say forensics and even circumstantial evidence didn’t even meet the most basic and minimal standards. Hence the appeal on dna evidence. This trial was a travesty, and anyone with sense could see that. I believe she is innocent and is a victim of naivete on her part, and Anti-Americanism and misogyny on the part of that kangaroo court and the intl tabloids. You don’t even need to be a psychic or legal expert to see that.

    1. Naive, Jr. says:

      It shows how important it is to consider people are always observing and any strange action will provoke them. Amanda acted if she was still in Seattle and watching TV. It is easier for a European to grasp America than for an American to grasp Europe.

  6. And to Petal, any psychic’s speculation and assessments of birth charts and alleged “proclivities” should be trumped by the egregious lack of dna evidence. That is why there will be an independent review of the dna evidence.

    1. Petal says:

      Funny you should post such a response on a PSYCHIC’S BLOG. Looks like you’re looking at all sources of information as well.

  7. kekeluvsu says:

    Well I have to agree with the fact that she acted very naive. And you could tell that she was. I have seen the lifetime movie they made of this story and watch on the news and read on websites about this case and I can honeslty say that in my heart of hearts I don’t think she did this. Knox and her ex actually got their appeal in December. So to the psychic who said they would get an appeal, you were very accturate with that. Let’s pray to God she can win this.

    1. Naive, Jr. says:

      Amanda really had to learn the hard way. She was not prepared for such a situation. Her boyfriend who deserves credit for his honesty was the only local connection, so he should have warned her not to underestimate the danger. Both were far too trusting. I cannot understand why their families didn’t take steps like legal counsel to protect them.

  8. zoma777 says:

    I’d like to ask Petal what her involvement is in the case. She claims first hand knowledge and has very intense opinions about a case happening in a foreign country that very few people know much about or follow here in the US. I normally think the police get it right and as I said in my post no psychic is 100% correct but I have to question what this extreme reaction is based on? Is it that Amanda is a very attractive young woman who is getting a lot of attention? Do you think she’s evil because someone said so? If you do know her, how and how well? I’m not saying there aren’t women who do horrible things and aren’t involved in crimes, horrendous ones. But she had the opportunity to flee Italy and didn’t.That doesn’t seem like a guilty person to me. And the Italian police I know from first hand experience, are very corrupt. Perhaps it’s gotten better in the past ten years but I doubt it. Amanda’s vibe maybe detached, perhaps shell shocked, but I never got the dark evil I have seen in the eyes of people who participate in the things she has been accused of. If you have some real evidence to the contrary please post it we’d all love to know. Your passion makes it seem like you have something personal at stake. Do you and if so perhaps you should come forward and let the world and the authorities know what you do. Otherwise stop harassing people on my blog or I’ll stop allowing you to post.

    1. Petal says:

      Hi there, I’m confused by this response. I do not have any more knowledge or concern about this subject than anyone else. Much less probably. I have responded to posts that seemed to be in response to my original one. That is all. And my original post was a friendly one simply asking about your opinion on counter-opinions. I have been genuinely interested in seeing what your response would be and am left very confused by your perception of harassment, which was never intended on my part.

  9. Lakshmi Williams says:

    I’d like to remind Harry Rag that Amanda Knox lived with the victim if he had any knowledge of DNA evidence he would know this would not hold up in a court of law here in the US. This is why DNA is often unusable in cases when people who live together such as lovers or family members kill one another or even have a lot of contact with one another. Cases must have motive and strong circumstantial evidence. In fact most cases are based on circumstantial evidence alone. This was the problem in the Jon Benet case, the police later admitted there was other unknown DNA evidence found on her pillow or something like that. But they never investigated anyone outside the family because they felt it probably came from the girl’s attendance at an earlier x-mas party. The thing about DNA is if someone sneezes on you hard enough and you happen to get murdered it could confuse a case. I know “Law and Order” and the proliferation of fictional cop shows on TV would lead one to believe in the iron clad voracity of DNA, but it’s really not as black and white as those shows would have one believe. DNA is helpful but it can’t and won’t win a case in court without tremendous circumstantial evidence and it often also takes strong motive to convince normal people to put another human being in prison or to death. Without a strong why most people can’t wrap their heads around a crime which means they will likely not convict. DNA is used only to support other evidence and sometimes crime scenes can become contaminated especially if the cops don’t secure the scene properly. I wonder what the supposed motive in this case for Amanda to kill her room mate was? She just bored that night? Or perhaps like the psychotic judge who thought she was some sort of witch performing devil worship (which by the way is antithetical to the religion of Wicca.) But let’s not forget it was in Europe during the middle ages that a quarter of all the women were murdered as witches. Perhaps the ancient fear of the dark mother or “evil woman” is playing out here. And like I said there are evil women just like evil men but if you look at the history of evil women most are poisoners not lust killers. That is usually reserved for men… hmmm, makes one wonder if Harry has some issues, if he’s going all over the internet slandering an “evil woman” perhaps he has some issues better reserved for therapy. Projection anyone? Maybe a deep seated anger toward mom? Not to say his mom doesn’t deserve it. She very well have been an “evil woman.” If Amanda’s guilty and doesn’t end up being convicted then the she’ll pay anyway. No need for Harry or anyone else to waste their time slandering someone who has already been slandered. What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Guess those are values reserved for the 18th century. If one pays attention one will see that karma always wins out. People reap what they sow and if someone is sowing bad oats or the victim of other people’s dark side then those who do the damage get their karma back. I’d watch it here if I were you Harry you’re playing a dangerous game with the balance of your life. All the time absorbed in this hatred and anger will only ruin your life. Surely you have a greater purpose here on this planet then to worry about something you can’t know anything about. Only the person or people who did this horrible crime, the victim and the score keeper karma and God know the truth. Why conjecture when it’s a losing battle for you?

    1. HRA says:

      I like what you have stated Lakhshmi. I will add this the only person’s DNA found on Meredith’s body belonged to Rudy Guede. Rudy was the only person who ran away and has a known criminal record. I hope justice will be served this time with the exoneration of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito.

    2. Naive, Jr. says:

      Anyone familiar with Italy knows the Italian fascination with certain themes and how the Italian yellow press promotes sensation. Meredith was the victim of a person inclined to physical violence, Amanda was victim of a psychological violence.

  10. I’m impressed with the intelligent posts put up on this topic. I must say, I have been completely and strongly convinced of Knox’s guilt but this is based on her stupid/naive reactions after the murder. Like Harry and a few others posting I have felt quite strongly about this, including at the seeming injustice of Knox and sollecito being released. I have even been venting some anger in posts online. However, reading these posts has left me more lightened – especially after Lakshmi’s post. It’s wise and true to remind us that were only creating our own karma by getting fired up over this. If Knox is guilty, let her deal with the Universe and see who wins. If someone else did it – then they’re in the same position, not least of whom is Guede who of all people should know if and who else was in the house. Anyway, thanks all for dealing with this topic and reenacting our own little blog drama so as to bring me back to the now, the one source of truth and power.

  11. Susanne says:

    You say you did not feel she was guilty whilst on an opinion poll 78 per cent find or feel her guilty…..she definitely was involved in some way, change of story,,,,,you cannot just call it naivety, what about implicating another man. Any other murder trial case, she would have gone down for sure.

  12. Simon R. Gladdish says:

    Dear Denise

    Like most Britons (and Italians) I simply do not believe that Ms Knox is innocent. Having said that, she would be a complete fool to return to Italy if she wants to avoid serving the remaining twenty-one years of her sentence.

    Best wishes from Simon

  13. Simon R. Gladdish says:

    Dear Marie

    How could you possibly know? You weren’t there. Do you really think that the Italians would go to all the trouble, inconvenience and expense of extraditing her back to Italy if she were half as innocent as you would like to believe? I hate to say it but an awful lot of Americans appear to have been brainwashed in her favour.

    Best wishes from Simon

    1. Naive, Jr. says:

      How silly! The Italians responsible for this will do whatever necessary to protect themselves, until they are stopped by higher instances.

  14. Stephen says:

    Amanda Knox found guilty again by Italian kangaroo court. How can anyone insist that Amanda is guilty when the Italian judicial system is wrought with blatant fraud, where the local police take bribes from victims on a daily basis, where corruption is a way of life. If the judicial system itself is not credible then the trials are not valid.

    1. Naive, Jr. says:

      It’s not necessary to refer to the faults of the Italian legal system because within the case itself are the reasons why both accused are not guilty of the crime. Since the case is within the Italian system, it is necessary to cooperate with it to achieve justice. That does not mean Amanda should return to Italy. Rafael cannot leave.

  15. Naive, Jr. says:

    Amanda Knox and her boyfriend are innocent. It’s amazing how she failed to realize her situation. Her boyfriend is a credit to Italy. I wonder what motivates the murderer who just wanted to burglarize the flat to lie.
