Meredith Kercher was a beautiful, happy, young woman who was thrust into the world news (and tabloids) due to her death and the depravity of the monsters who attacked her. It is no exaggeration to describe her as a rising star. She was mature, ambitious, loved and admired by the many people whose lives she touched. Even now Meredith’s inner light radiates so brightly that those held responsible for her demise still bask in the outer fringes of her glow, in the dim fumes of infamy.
While Amanda Knox relives her lesbian experiences in prison (ten years ago) in the mainstream media, her ex-flame Raffaele Sollecito boils over on Italian television. Too humiliated to face the public, Raffaele fired away from the telephone about the Florence courts recent verdict. On February 11, 2017 the Italian court rejected his request for half a million euros compensation for ‘wrongful imprisonment.’ The judges stated that because Raffaele lied to the police, causing his arrest, he cannot receive compensation.
It is being reported on January 10, 2017 that Rudy Guede’s petition to review his conviction as an accomplice to the murder of Meredith Kercher has been deemed “inadmissible”by the Florence appeals court. Rudy Guede is serving a 16-year sentence for the murder of Meredith Kercher. His two former co-defendants Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were acquitted in 2015 after doubt was cast on their DNA evidence.
The Florence courts have scheduled Rudy Guede’s next court date on January 10, 2017. Guede will provide documents to support his stance that he deserves a new trial. Rudy Guede was found to have participated with others in the murder of Meredith Kercher. This was confirmed by the Italian Supreme Court when they acquitted Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito.
On November 1, 2007, 21-year-old Meredith Kercher, a beautiful, British, Erasmus exchange student was murdered in Perugia, Italy. On the anniversary of her death, The Seattle Times shockingly published a story about one of the murder suspects, Amanda Knox.
On September 12, 2016, Amanda Knox’s ex-boyfriend-of-seven-days decided to give a podcast interview. The show is appropriately called, The Dark Room, where it shines a favorable light on Raffaele Sollecito while keeping the public in the dark about the facts of the Meredith Kercher murder case.
In an obviously rehearsed monologue, Sollecito doesn’t seem to hear the first question before embarking on his rant. The knife-collector recounts his latest rendition of what he supposedly did the night of the murder. The problem is that Sollecito’s new alibi for his activities on the evening of November 1, 2007 contradicts what he told a judge in court back in 2007, shortly after the crime.
It is being reported on September 1, 2016 that a 20-year-old woman named Amanda and her two male accomplices strangled a young man to death and dumped his body by the railroad tracks in Scranton, PA. Amanda Wayda, Preston Layfield, 19, and Tyler Mirabelli, 22 are all charged with “aggravated assault and conspiracy charges in the Aug. 25 death of 21-year-old Joshua Rose.”
It is being reported on August 26, 2016 that a judge has rejected prosecutors request to appeal the six-year-sentence for murder given paralympian Oscar Pistorius earlier this year.
Many felt that the sentence Pistorius received for murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day in 2013, was not punishment enough. Many trial watchers expected the double amputee ex-Olympic runner to receive at least ten years for the murder.
It is being reported on August 2, 2016 that Rudy Guede, Amanda Knox’s co-accused in the murder of Meredith Kercher, has filed a petition for a retrial. Guede’s defense team argues that his sentence is incompatible with the acquittals that Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito received for the same crime. They want to overturn his conviction.
