British student, Meredith Kercher, was stabbed to death in Perugia, Italy on November 1, 2007. The exact cause or reasons which led to the homicide is still not completely known. Evidence from the crime scene points to three individuals involved with her murder: Raffaele Sollecito, Rudy Guede and Amanda Knox. Meredith’s mother Arline Kercher has stated, “I think it happened to Meredith because she was all that they weren’t.” Before and after the murder, Amanda Knox showed tendencies of being competitive and possibly even obsessed with Meredith Kercher. Knox seems to compete with Meredith in life and death. Amanda Knox has attempted to ‘outfox’ Meredith over men, music videos, and career. On top of all of this Knox has taunted Meredith’s family by mainstream media outlets and has seemingly approved of her supporters harassing the Kerchers via social media.
