Update! More Evidence That May Free Amanda Knox From The Italian Murder Case!

Thu, September 8, 2011 10:15pm EST by 6 Comments

A major win for the defense attorneys in the Amanda Knox trial, may be enough to win her an appeal from her Italian murder charges!

More evidence has been found in the Amanda Knox trial that will most likely result in her freedom! We reported earlier that contaminated evidence found at the scene of the crime could lead to the appeal of Knox’s murder conviction, and now another blow to the prosecution team could seal the deal.

“There is an ill wind blowing in this case,” said Prosecutor Manuela Comodi to The Telegraph. “The judge and his assistant are clearly against us. I can see both Knox and Sollecito being freed, which will be a shame as they are both involved.”

Forensic experts are questioning the credibility of the tests run on the blood samples found on the 12-inch knife that was used to murder Knox’s roommate Meredith Kercher, in what Italian police believe was a sex game gone wrong. On top of the questionable evidence, the judge recently denied the prosecution’s request to call forward a new witness and show new records from tests run on the original tests.

Tell us what YOU think! Do you think Amanda should be aquitted of her murder charges?

The Prosecution didn’t run new tests…they just asked to run new tests. Desperate attempts. Again, calling the witness who came forward claiming that Rudy told him they didn’t do it. Even though it sounded good (for the defense) it wasn’t true. He was simply trying to a reduced sentence. He HAD to be heard because he came out and said that he knew something. It was done with after questioning. Now the Prosecution wants to use the fact that he recanted as “evidence” that would help them. This is a desperate desperate attempt. They’ll be not only free’d but exonerated as well.

The US media is delusional. The only DNA evidence put under quesetion was the knife and the bra strap. Even then it only says those two evidence pieces MIGHT have been contaminated. There is no contention with the DNA evidence found of Knox’s bare bloody footprint found in Filomena’s room mixed with Kercher’s DNA.

Speaking of delusional… There was no Knox bloody footprint — you’ve been reading bad tabloid news reports. And not only do the experts say the DNA test might have been contaminated, they show pretty conclusively that they were: DNA from officials and 16 different people were also found on the bra clasp (oh, maybe you think they were all killers?). But even if it were only “might” have been contaminated, that’s how courts of law work: the prosecution has to prove positively that it *was* the defendants’ DNA; the defense doesn’t have to prove it wasn’t. If you admit it might not be theirs, then Knox and Sollecito must be freed.

Dan-I have to agree with you!!! Also GW if you actually knew what was going on you would know that the bloody footprint was Rudy Guede’s and NOT Amanda’s!!!

@GW:- I can’t imagine where you get your information from! Unless, as Dan suggests, it is from the lies fed to the tabloids by the prosecution.

Remember that since Amanda lived in the apartment her DNA would be liberally distributed over all the parts of the apartment that she had normal access to, such as the hallway, the bathroom, and the kitchen. And some of her dna could then have been transferred by other people elsewhare in the apartment. Also remember that household dust has considerable proportion of cast-off skin cells from occupants which contains the dna of those occupants.

I don’t recall what you describe from my reading of eight books on the case.

As far as ‘MIGHT have been contaminated’, if I send you an envelope that might or might not contain a million dollars, would you send me an envelope that DOES conatain a thousand dollars? I didn’t think you would. Simply, dna ‘evidence’ that might be contaminated has no probative (evidential) value at all.

I first met the word ‘probative’ in ‘The Monster of Perugia’ by Mark Waterbury, which has a lot to say about the so-called evidence, as has ‘Injustice in Perugia’ by Bruce Fisher.

Well I’m glad the murder conviction was overturned. Even if it wasn’t it isn’t like she would end up facing the death penalty since Italy is a lot more civilized of a country than barbaric caveman piece of s**t nations like the U.S.
