This whole Amanda Knox ordeal is turning into a WILD ride!
She's found guilty, her ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, is caught fleeing Italy after the verdict, and Amanda has spoken out about how scared she is!
However, the whole situation from waaaay back in 2007 has confused many people.
Well, lucky for you, Perezicious readers, there was a Lifetime Original Movie starring Hayden Panettiere made about Amanda's whole ordeal, titled Amanda Knox Murder On Trial In Italy.
Which was pretty much based on the book Angel Face: Sex, Murder and the Inside Story of Amanda Knox, a book written & published before Amanda was found to be innocent.
So, in order to help you anyone who may be confused about her whole story, we've explained the whole timeline of events with GIFs from the AH-MAZE (lolz) movie.
If you're confused, ch-ch-check out the whole story…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
