The Knox verdict

October 5, 2011 - Jim Anderson
Until a couple of days ago, I hadn’t followed the Amanda Knox/Meredith Kercher story with much careful attention.

Was Knox, an American student, involved in the 2007 murder of Kercher, her roommate in Italy?

I doubt it, but who knows. Knox’s confession to being at the scene — written in a language she had yet to master — was made under extreme duress. The physical “evidence” was a mess.

Nancy Grace, on the other hand, says the release of Knox this week from an Italian prison was “a huge miscarriage of justice.” Grace believes Knox’s boyfriend (who’s also been freed) committed the crime while Knox egged him on. The Headline News legal commentator obviously has no use for the theory that a third person, Rudy Hermann Guede — who’s been convicted in the murder and has changed his story many times — acted alone.

That seems the most logical explanation that I’ve come across.

With all due respect to Nancy Grace.
