If all you know about the murder case of Meredith Kercher is from reading Amanda Knox’s memoir, then you’d better read this.
Amanda Knox’s 500 page memoir, Waiting to be Heard has been described as:
” . . . insulting, inflammatory, literally makes hundreds of false claims, slimes many, accuses others of crimes, whitewashes AK’s history—including banging a coke dealer for drugs, greatly distorts the factual evidence, and makes very little sense, even to those who have not followed the case closely.” (truejustice.org)
Her memoir was meant to bolster her defense position in an ongoing murder trial. In it she sanitizes her story while exacting revenge on people she didn’t like. In colloquial terms, Amanda’s memoir is an attempt to portray herself as a ‘Hannah’ when in reality she was a ‘Miley.’
This ebook scrutinizes Amanda Knox’s own words and reveals what is fact and what is fiction by comparing Knox’s account with official documentation and other witness accounts.
This ebook also delves into how Amanda describes events and what that reveals. This analysis is done in an informal, conversational way but sticks to the documented facts.
In a shocking end to a three-year legal battle, it is being reported on July 6, 2016 that Oscar Pistorius was sentenced to six years in prison for murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. He will be eligible for house arrest by 2019. Reeva Steenkamp’s parents left the courtroom without comment.
It is being reported on July 3, 2016 that the most notorious Canadian rapist and murderer, Paul Bernardo, has applied for day parole. Legal experts say it is very unlikely that he will be allowed parole. “Criminal lawyer Daniel Brown says Bernardo’s chances of release from jail, now or in the future however, are virtually nil.” Bernardo’s victims have been contacted and they are directed to send impact statement by July 14, 2016.
It is being reported on June 23, 2016 that Amanda Knox‘s co-defendant, Rudy Guede, has been allowed to leave prison for 36 hours this weekend. Guede is allowed a leave from his regular prison routine on account of good behavior. This will be the first time he has been out since his arrest in 2007 when he, Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were charged with the murder of Meredith Kercher.
“The last week of October , Meredith and her sister Stephanie texted and emailed each other often to talk about her flight home in early November. They were chatting about Giacomo when Meredith suddenly told her sister:
‘By the way, I quarrelled with my American flatmate.’ Meredith mentioned it in passing, and Stephanie didn’t think of asking what the row had been about.”

After the international publicity announcing Amanda Knox’s ex-lover, Raffaele Sollecito being hired as a crime expert on Italian TV, thousands of people signed a petition to stop him. A Change.org petition was created in Italian to be sent to the director of Tgcom24, Paul Landry, asking him to remove Sollecito from their program, ‘The Yellow of the week.’
