Italian Court Reveals There Was NEVER Reliable Evidence Linking Amanda Knox To Roommate's Murder!

Given the fact that Amanda spent four years of her life in jail, this is VERY disturbing news.

As a reminder, Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito served four years in an Italian prison after being sentenced for the murder of Amanda's roommate Meredith Kercher.

Yesterday, an Italian appeals court released an explanation of why Amanda and Raffaele's murder convictions were overturned…and it's because there was never "any reliable evidence" linking the two to Meredith's murder. Wow.

The report released by Judge Claudio Pratillo Hellman states that Amanda's roommate was "killed by a 'lone assassin.'"

Here's more about the original verdict from the judge's newly released report:

…Was not corroborated by any objective element of evidence and in itself was not, in fact probable: the sudden choice of two young people, good and open to other people, to do evil for evil's sake, just like that, without another reason. It is not, therefore, sufficient that the probability of the prosecutors' hypothesis is greater than the hypothesis of the defense, not even when they are notably greater in number, but it is necessary that every explanation that differs from the prosecutors' hypothesis is, according to the criteria of reasonability, not at all plausible.

Words cannot properly express how disturbing and upsetting this is. We can only hope that Amanda and Raffaele will stay strong, and do their best to keep a positive attitude as they move forward with their lives and never look back.

    Doesn't exactly make you want to travel to Italy, does it?



  2. 2

    Was it just me who seen the video of her making out with her Italian boyfriend when they were bringing out the girls body and such, then shopping for lingerie the very next day, smiling? Huhhhh.. weirddd. To me any normal person, wouldn't think it was time for a makeout session right then.



  3. 3

    She struck me as a sociopath from the start and fully capable of such an act.
    .
    Still does.



  4. 4

    Im 50/50 on this bitch

    but I dont like her either way…something cold about her. Just a feeling. But she got her freedom and should just be grateful and disappear.



  5. 5

    still think she's guilty.

    Re: monroe444 – the US has a famous case of an italian who is convicted of murder and yet no proves that it was him after 23 yrs he is still waiting for his trial in the USA. AS you can see US law are not perfect so I suggest you stop that.

    She is guilty but the USA bought her out.

    Re: alemeh2 – I do not agree with your statement, that is my opinion. I believed her to be innocent from day one. There is nothing in her background that would lead up to her doing this and that has been proven in a court of law. No bought out here. I would so not send my child to study in Italy. Even though I have traveled there a few times and the people are wonderful and gracious, the court system is scary.

    I know some people think she's guilty but they just admitted to having NO PROOF against her. So what makes you think YOU have proof against her? I'm pretty sure the court in Italy would know a bit more about this case than any of you, so who are you to point fingers when there is no evidence against her? Because she was smiling the next day? So she's cold hearted- I'll give you that- but a killer? Where's your proof?

    Re: kylaaagirl – Exactly. She MAY not have actually killed her, but I am far from convinced she was completely blameless. I also found her behaviour in the timeline after the murder, disgusting

    They arrested the man who murdered that girl, so why did they continue to hold Amanda all those years……………….they were only digging, with abolutely nothing to go on. I have never been so happy to see her released, and back to her life as it was before. SHE WAS INNOCENT. They had nothing on her……………….read it folks.



  11. 11

    She did it. Her statements reveals the truth.

    Re: kylaaagirl – Please, thats ridiculous. She kissed him once. Her friend had just been murdered, wouldn't you be sad and want some kind of affection at that time? And the reason she bought underwear the next day was because all of her clothes was in the house, and she couldn't go and get them because it was a crime scene. Check your facts before you say something stupid like that. There was NEVER any evidence or behaviour of hers that proved her guilt. She was interrogated for hours and hours (under poor conditions) until she said what they wanted. And she even got sentenced 4 years in prison for lying to the police, even though THEY literally forced her to do it. She was portrayed badly in the Italian and American press, that's all. If you read the case you'll see that for yourself.

    The only thing that disturbed me about Amanda was how she jumps from guy to guy. I read that she had a boyfriend when she moved to Italy, and then she Raffaele were together a week when Meredith was murdered, and then she moved in with another boyfriend almost immediately after returning to the states.
    Kinda grosses me out.

    Re: kylaaagirl – Have YOU ever made out? Is THAT what you call "making out"? You must have an awfully dull love life.



  15. 15

    Re: Elron Hubbard - Con Man – Well, that shows how much you know.



  16. 16

    Re: HorizonOzil – How can you make a value judgement like that? You don't know anything about the facts of the circumstance. She grew up with the man she's living with. They've known each other for years. What century do you live in?



  17. 17

    …thats not a good look……..

    The prosecutor in this case should be imprisoned for pursuing his ridiculous "Satanic" theories & jailing 2 innocents for 4 years, draining their families financial resources based on zero evidence.

    Amanda was not "making out" @crime scene. she'd only known Raffaele 10 days/ been in Perugia 2 mos. A kid, in shock, alone in a foreign country who'd just found her roommate's corpse. To judge her based on her & Raffaele's dazed attempts to comfort one another is unfair and slightly insane.

    Amanda bought clean underwear because the cops would not let her back into her apartment to get any clothing. People who created "scandal" out of this and judged her a murderer based on needing clean clothes are as deranged as the prosecutor.

    @Elron Hubbard On what do you base your "hunch" that Amada is a sociopath? Some photos printed in British tabloids? Judge not lest you be judged. Look in the mirror. You've got serious problems. There was zero evidence that she & Raffaele had anything to do with the terrible crime. ZERO. It's scary to think people like you make snap judgements of such grave consequences based on nothing. That girl had no prior incidences of violence, nor did Raffaele. No motive, no evidence, just a rush to judgement based on prejudice, and rumors spun to sell trashy British tabloid papers.

    First of all, they were "definitely" making out. What do you call an open mouth kiss , while swapping spit and moving tounges together? And I've had done much research on the case, and even saw a documentary on it. So before you act like you know everything get your facts straight. And one kiss? I don't know what you read or were watching but it was like a makeout session, after makeout session. The girl seems crazy, oh shes a straight A student blah blah, their the ones who are truely insane.

    I hate how they try to justify her innocence by saying she has never done anything in the past, so what? Everyone has to have their first transgression before they're a criminal.
