I agree she is guilty. There are so many things that people here have mentioned, the murder weapon, the five spots of blood with Amanda’s DNA and Meredith’s blood found, she implicated an innocent man, sollecitos story changed, they turned off their phones….her nonverbal cues do not match he words….one thing nobody has mentioned yet it the obvious cleanup of the bloody footprints in the hallway. They did not find those later until they used luminal. Why would an intruder leave the body and all that evidence in a room, lock the door and then clean the hallway with bleach? It makes no sense. Unless you live there and you were involved in the murder. You need to clean the hallway so u can pretend like u don’t know here’s a dead body behind that door. The cleanup of the hallway totally points to amanda.

Did you watch the part where diane sawyer asks her if she murdered meredith? Amanda shakes her head no and says no. Then diane asks her if she was present when she was murdered and amanda says no but NODS her head yes. She just gave away what she was thinking in her head. This is a common thing liars do when asked a question that they are lying about, their verbal response is the lie, but they are thinking the true answer in their heads so their subconscious manifests itself in opposing answers. If the truth is being told then when asked a question when the answer truly is no, the heads shakes from side to side in a no response. Same for a yes response, the head should nod up and down. She said no, but her head nodded up and down. She was totally lying that she wasn’t there the night meredith was murdered. I don’t think she stabbed meredith, but I do believe she was there the night of the murder and then covered it up with her boyfriend.

What is sad, is that if someone is young and reasonably attractive, they can do nothing wrong. And yes, behaviour is a HUGE indicator of whether someone is guilty or not – investigators know this, they see it all the time, and they look at it closely.This woman made crude comments about Meredith’s death to her friends…she clearly hated her, and was blatantly obvious in her actions afterwards, cartwheels etc.
I love how people defend her and say “people grieve differently”, but isn’t it possible that maybe she just wasn’t grieving?

When she nodded her head while saying no she didn’t kill Meredith I thought straight away “guilty”, she knows more than she’s letting on.

For me the most telling thing was that none of her peers in Italy have as far as I’m aware, come out in her defence whereas Meredith seems to have been universally popular.

why don’t you educate yourself on what a person’s body does when it’s lying? Clearly in the interview with diane sawyer when diane sawyer asks her if she killed meredith, she says no but her head initially goes down into a nod but then changes direction and shakes side to side. Ok that was a bit too subtle. Diane then asks her were you present when meredith was killed. Amanda’s eyebrows raise up in surprise and answers no but her head nods yes. Her mind was in opposition to her answer. That is a DEFINITE lie. Her body outed her when it nodded yes, her mind was in incongruence to her verbal response of no. When you tell the truth such as a no answer your body will respond with a shake of the head as well, meaning it’s in alignment with what was just said. Now when you lie, say you answer no to a question your head nods yes that means it’s a lie/deceit.

Always believed she was innoncent after hearing all the facts in the case. I feel bad for her because many still believe the opposite. To me all these haters are very ignorant, uneducated people!!.
There is absolutely nothing to tie her to the crime accept bizzare behavior that was manipulated by the media. There isn’t one single bit of physical evidence. All these haters just refuse to look at the facts and refuse to admit they are wrong. Stop bashing this poor girl.
I feel for the Kercher family but Amanda has also been victimized!!
Why doesn’t anyone care that the real killer, GUEDE, the one whose DNA was found all over the room, and inside Kercher from a viscious rape. The guy with a mile long rap sheet, known to break into homes, businesses and steal, armed with knife, the one with the only motive, the one who fled Italy the next day, he could be free next year because of a plea deal. Why the hell isn’t anyone mad about that!!!!

She is ugly murderer and a disgusting inhuman being. Anyone who has at least little bit of brain can see it, and I feel shame for americans who keep defending her. If not Hollywood money and Italian clumsy prosecution she would be serving life long ago as she supposed to be.

please tell me what the evidence is to convict her? the police never taped the interrogation even though they were required to. they hit her and screamed at her for over 24 hours. they asked her questions, screamed at her when they didn’t get the answers they wanted, and fed her information.
all of the DNA that would have linked her and raffaelle to the crime was thrown out. the police didn’t follow protocol and the DNA they found was miniscule.
somehow, however, when they re-looked at DNA< rudy guede's DNA was all over ythe crime scene. he confessed and he had a motive.

you're just ignorant of the facts.

They do not have to record an interview of a witness. She confessed after a 2 1/2 hour interview learning Sollecito had withdrawn her alibi. Her lawyers said she was treated well. She even had snacks and a nap. Guede;s DNA was not all over the crime scene , In fact they found Amanda’s DNA mixed with Meredith;s blood in the room with the fake break-in. Not one spec from Guede there. Who staged the break in and who moved and staged her body? He did not confess to murder but being there just like Amanda said she was there and heard Meredith scream.

Let’s just throw out the stupid interrogation and confession. Everyone seems to be hung up on that. Let’s look at the hard evidence. Her alibi was proven to be false thru the computer records and the cell phone records. There were 2 eye witnesses that placed her and her boyfriend out in perugia the night of the murder and the following morning at a store. There were 3 types of shoe/foot prints found at the crime scene. The MALE SHOE prints were matched to Rudy, but the bloody footprint was not Rudy’s foot and the measurements were matched to the boyfriend’s foot. There was a third bloody shoe print found underneath the body which was smaller than a man’s shoe, the print wasn’t a full print so they couldn’t match it to any specific shoe but could determine it was a girl’s shoe. Her behavior at the police station before she was interrogated was off, she did the splits!!! She admitted to doing this which shows she didn’t think what was going on was serious and highly disrespectful. Her actions of what she did when she discovered the break in at the apartment are also telling. She called the one roommate whose room was trashed and the rock was thrown into, told her what happened and said meredith’s door is locked. The roommate tells her to call meredith immediately. So amanda calls meredith’s cell phone and then calls the one roommate back to tell her meredith’s phone just rang and rang and she never picked up. Amanda’s cell phone records show she did call meredith’s phone but that she hung up after 3 seconds! 3 seconds! So she’s caught in another lie. She only rang the phone for 3 seconds because she knew meredith wasn’t going to answer because she was dead. Amanda did know Rudy Guede, she had met him several times because the boys that lived downstairs were his friends. Rudy actually had a crush on Amanda and had asked if she was dating anyone. So there is a link to the person who they have in prison for murder. I don’t think amanda stuck the knife into meredith, but I do believe she was there when meredith was killed by geude.

A brain? Sounds like you aren’t using yours Cap Nemo.
None of her DNA was in Merdith Kercher’s room. She was judged completely on her behaviour. Kercher’s room was covered in blood…. there’s no way her fingerprints, DNA, etc wouldn’t have been in the room. Rudy Guede’s bloody handprint was on the wall, his bloody footprint on the floor his fingerprints al over Kercher’s purse that he stole money from. His DNA inside her from the brutal rape. He had motive, he had a record, was known from breaking into businesses and homes, was even caught breaking in a business in Milan with a knife. He had had motive, he fled the country right after the crime. Once he was caught he told proseuctors he never saw Amanda. He only changed his story for a much lighter sentence. Yes, the real killer could be free next year. A very corrupt, showboat prosecutor was trying to save face and make an international name for himself!! Check out the stories about the lead prosecutor he was even under indictment at the time!!!
Folks use your brain. Amanda is as guilty as you or I of killing someone!!!
Unless Knox and her boyfriend were hovering over the room, they weren’t there that night!! And FYI you can’t wipe away your DNA and leave behind others!! If you have a brain you know that!!!

There was DNA, but because of a mistake by a technician, the evidence was thrown out: “In Knox’s case, Italian prosecutors in their subsequent investigation did find two bits of DNA that could support a conspiracy theory. The first was taken from a knife found in Sollecito’s kitchen and matched Knox’s DNA. The second bit of DNA was taken from Kercher’s bra clasp and matched Sollecitto’s DNA. As it turned out, both DNA samples were later invalidated by the appeals court because of a serious flaw: the police technician who examined them had failed to change her lab gloves between examining DNA samples, raising the possibility of cross-contamination. That “evidence” was invalidated, leaving none. In the absence of any physical evidence against them, Knox and Sollecito were acquitted by the appellate court.” Saved by an “oops” obviously. This is probably why they are re-opening the case. Tell me–if this was one of your “dear friends” would you have made a statement like “wow, they slit her f**king throat.” ??

You know what, I think no one can predict how they would act during a traumtic experience like this… sometimes people behave a certain way of behaving to (GALLOWS HUMOR) cope with the trauma. Who are we to judge… plus a lot of things get lost in translation. Not just the language. But think about… Italians are very emotional people, waving their hands when they talk, shouting when they’re mad. They are very dramatic. Americans are much differenty emotionally and if you’re not used to it you think it odd. Amanda also admits she was very imature for her age.

AND The knife didn’t even match the wounds!! It wasn’t the murder weapon. I’m sure Rudy Gude took it with him when he fled Italy the next day. I’m sure it was the same type of knife Rudy Guede was caught with just weeks earlier when he broke into a business in Milan and was surprised by the owner. Yes he was armed with a knife at that time.
The DNA on the bra clasp was thrown out because it wasn’t retrieved until 41 days after the murder. It had been pushed around the room and was handled by a number of technicians who didn’t change there gloves. They had touched so many things around the apartment they contaminated it. This wasn’t CSI Miami, these guys were the keystone cops. It was a smal town and they didn’t know how to work a real crime scene. And they had a crazy prosecutor directing them.

Regardless of all the evidence, this woman gives off guilt. There truly were no tears. Lots of phony voice quivering and eyes cast downward, but not a drop on those lily white cheeks of hers. I do not see her in the least as a sweet, innocent little WASP she comes off to be. We can spend all the live-long day explaining why she was so devoid of emotion about losing her “dear friend” but the long and the short of it is, anyone who has been through this for all these years has to have feelings of sadness, loss, remorse, and tears FLOW from the eyes of those who have experienced this “trauma” as you put it. I still stick with the theory that this girl was not an innocent bystander who just happened by her apartment and got the feeling something was wrong in there. You come home to blood on the sink, blood on the floor and you FREAK OUT. You don’t have to be an emotional Italian to know something is horribly wrong.

let’s see how she acted BEFORE the discovery of the body. That in itself is telling. She goes to the apartment in her own words around 10:30am that morning. Goes to shower and get ready for the day. Notices the door wide open and thinks it odd. But oh well. She calls out to see if anyone is home and no one answers. Notices meredith’s door is locked. How would she know that unless she tried the handle? But yet she said it was common for meredith to lock her room, so why would she have even tried the handle to see if it was locked if this was common. This is a lie which the other roommates said it wasn’t common for meredith to lock her bedroom door. She goes to the bathroom to shower and sees blood on the sink, ok odd but no biggie. She said she thought the blood was from her newly pierced ears but then sees that it’s not so she thinks it’s menstrual blood from her roommate. She takes a shower and as she’s leaving the shower she sees the bloody footprint on the bathmat. Again menstrual blood is what she thinks. BUT she realizes she doesn’t have a towel so what does she do? She picks up the bloody bath mat and wraps it around herself to walk to her room. REALLY???? Are you effing serious? WHO DOES THAT? I think she told them that so if they found any dna of hers on the bloody bath mat that’s how she explained it. So then she gets dressed and walks into the other bathroom to blow dry her hair. She notices while in this bathroom someone has taken a dump in the toilet and didn’t flush. What does Amanda do? She finishes drying her hair then walks out of the bathroom. REALLY? Ask yourself if the same scenario happened to you where you walk into a bathroom to get ready and notice crap in the toilet what is you first reaction? Most people would flush the turd so they wouldn’t have to smell it or look at it. Or they would have grabbed the hairdryer and walked back out of the bathroom. She chose to stay in the bathroom to dry her hair and never flushed the toilet out of courtesy. If you want to see Amanda confess on national tv that she was there the night meredith was murdered. Watch Diane Sawyer’s interview with her on youtube. Part 3, 12 seconds into the start of part 3 diane sawyer asks her point blank, did you kill meredith. Now watch her body’s reaction to her answers when asked these questions. Do some research on body language and when a person lies. What Amanda does is called incongruence. Here’s an example: a yes or no question is asked, the person responds thruthfully with a no and their head shakes from side to side no. This shows what they are thinking and saying are in congruence meaning in alignment with the answer. Now a person who is lying when asked the same question but lies they say no but then their head nods yes then it shows that their thoughts are out of alignment with what was just said by them. So watch what happens when diane sawyer asks her did you kill her. Amanda says no, initially her head goes down in a nod, but then shakes side to side no. OK too subtle of a nod? Second question: Where you there the night when meredith was killed. Amanda’s eyebrows go up in surprise which means she didn’t expect to be asked this question, she then says no, but her head nods an affirmative yes. Watch the interview and tell me you don’t see she’s lying.

Rudy’s DNA was found because he did rape meredith they found his semen. They also found his hand print on the wall in meredith’s blood and prints in her purse. What they also found in the house were 3 different bloody prints. bloody SHOE prints that matched rudy’s shoes. 1 bloody FOOT print on the bath mat which did not match rudy’s foot but closely matched the boyfriend’s. and a 3rd SHOE print UNDER meredith’s body which was a partial shoe print but they could see from the size/measurements that it was a woman’s shoe. What are the odds now that it was a solo person who killed meredith? They also found a blood smear that consisted of both meredith’s blood and amanda’s blood. But this got thrown out because the defense said that it could be possible since both women lived in the house together. REALLY? how is it that that DNA blood smear wasn’t from one of the 2 other women living in the house? It just so happened to be amanda’s who is a suspect for murder.

Tears? What tears? Lots of “appearance” of crying but believe me, if there is remorse and emotion tears FLOW. That choked up facade revealed not one drop coming from those eyes. This girl must have some acting in her background, because she knows quite a bit that she is keeping secret. I am the first person to give the benefit of the doubt! Don’t believe me? Look at the Susan Smith interviews!! All “choked up” and pleading, but NOT ONE DROP fell from those eyes either.

do you remember the menendez brothers??? they put on quite a show, crying hysterically after their parents died. turns out they killed them.
bottom line: people respond differently to things. you can’t judge someone’s behavior and think you know what happened. all you can do is look at the evidence. and there is NO evidence that amanda killed meredith. only randy’s DNA was found at the scene of the crime. it’s impossible to erase one person’s DNA but have another’s still remain. how is this even a question? she’s innocent.

Guede stanched the wound and got blood on his hand . Amanda left a drop of hers on the tap. and mixed DNA and Merediths blood deposts in random spots like the break in room. Why did she shower in a cold cottage and wander around become alarmed but didn’t check the girls rooms She returned with Sollecito saw the break in saw Meredith’s purse on her bed in the locked room through the keyhole. But guess what when the police arrived she tried to say Meredith always locked her door . A big lie , Then Filomena’s friend breaks down the door . Amanda and Sollecito are no where near..

oj got off because his lawyers did the same thing Amanda’s lawyers did which is try and disprove all the dna evidence that was found at the crime scenes. They made it look like every sample of dna that proved OJ did it was contaminated and it was bad police/lab and that the police were all prejudiced against OJ. Well it worked it got the samples disqualified from trial. But we all know OJ was guilty. The DNA they did find that linked amanda and her boyfriend to the crime scene did show they were there that night. But amanda’s good lawyers put enough doubt into the samples to get it kicked out. You want to see her confess to being there that night? Watch the diane sawyer interview. Youtube the interview watch part 3 12 seconds into the interview diane sawyer asks amanda if she killed her. Amanda says no, but her head slightly goes down into a nod then quickly shakes side to side in a no motion. Ok that was too subtle. Next question “were you there when meredith was murdered?” Amanda’s eyebrows go up in surprise ( she wasn’t expecting this question) she says no, but then she nods her head yes. Do some research on body language of a liar. Once you see that her head nod is a sign she is lying you will change your opinion on her innocence.
