For generations, high profile killers have used their infamy to lasso in celebrities to support their cause. John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Johnny Depp and now Mischa Barton have all publicly supported a criminal. Due diligence is mandatory before jumping onto a criminal’s campaign, they are astute and know how to take advantage of others. Actors are as susceptible as anyone else.
This article will show three examples of murderers who were able to gain public support through media manipulation. Their lies gained momentum and celebrities jumped onto their bandwagons.
Over the years of the Meredith Kercher murder trial, professional journalists who covered the case have been targeted by Amanda Knox and her enablers. The malicious attacks against journalists has been spoon fed to a largely ignorant public who seem to accept the lies spewed by Amanda Knox and her supporters.
Amber Hilberling was a 19-year-old pregnant newlywed in an abusive relationship with an alleged drug addict husband who had been kicked out of the air force for his drug activities. The couple lived in a Tulsa, OK high rise building built with cheap windows. The glass was as thin as the ones used in picture frames. In one of their many arguments she pushed Josh and he crashed through the window, plummeted almost 20 stories to his death.
On the 10th anniversary of Meredit Kercher’s murder, Italian television show Punti di Vista invited some of the main figures from the Meredith Kercher murder trial on the show.

It is being reported on January 27, 2018 that former murder convict, Amanda Knox, receives up to $10,000 per speaking engagement about events surrounding the murder of Meredith Kercher.

” . . .there is still something strange and deeply off about seeing a woman who might’ve been complicit in a violent attack . . .being celebrated for her strength and spirit.”
Some readers may be surprised to learn that this quote is not about Amanda Knox but another American woman known for a violent attack on another female- Tonya Harding. It is from a well-written review of her new movie, I, Tonya.
Amanda Knox and her public relations firm must be thrilled. They have managed to have their lies spun in a college paper, “What Not to Do When Your Roommate Is Murdered in Italy: Amanda Knox, Her ‘Strange’ Behavior, and the Italian Legal System” by Martha Grace Duncan. Eighty-one pages long and citing all pro-innocence books and articles. The paper includes many factual errors; a few will be corrected here.
For many years, celebrities have used their prominent status to help free convicted killers. This is because public relations has and will most likely continue to be hired to help free convicts. The most recent examples are Rihanna, Lebron James and Kim Kardashian all calling for a young woman named Cyntoia Brown to be freed. Brown has been convicted in a court of law, of murder.
