Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito CLEARED of murdering Meredith Kercher

Amanda Knox screamed with delight today as she was sensationally cleared of murdering her former room-mate Meredith Kercher, seven years after the British student was found dead in Italy.

Joyous shouting was heard from Knox’s back garden in Seattle as news came through that Italy’s highest court had overturned the murder conviction against her and ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito.

The decision by the Supreme Court of Cassation is the final ruling in the case and definitively ends the gruelling legal battle waged by Knox and her co-defendant Sollecito.

The Kercher’s family attorney Francesco Maresca was clearly disappointed by the ruling and said: ‘I think that it’s a defeat for the Italian justice system.’

Following the verdict Amanda was briefly spotted on the back porch of her mother’s home, eagerly clutching her phone closely to her ear.

    The Italians really don’t have a functioning judicial system.
    It really is whatever any judge feels like doing on that day.

      I’ve read quite a bit about this case and it is unclear why she was charged in the first place.

        It looks like the Italian Police got it in their heads early on that she and her boyfriend ‘did it’ and so they fabricated evidence, and concealed other evidence, to back up their conclusion.

        • It is a nutty system. I could never figure this case out based on the bizarre whims of the Italian judiciary.

      • J. C.

        I followed the case back in the day (hazy on the details now), but I could never figure it out, either. The only explanation was that the prosecutor, under investigation for corruption at the time, was desperate to divert attention from himself. Plus, winning a murder case against a ‘filthy American’ would’ve been a huge feather in a small-town lawyer’s cap…

        Me too.
        They know who did it according to what I’ve read.

    Kercher’s killer is actually Rudy Guede, an itinerant African immigrant.

      Yep, but they going after her even after they had him. Bizarre.

        Can’t lose face, now.
        Kinda like the White House statements on their success in Yemen.

      He even admitted to it when caught and said he did it alone.

      When questioned he knew nothing at all to who the Italian police claimed were his two white accomplices and the police found no connection between them but still charged the other two.

        Note to self: Do not send son or daughter to Italy for schooling or tourism ever. Encourage others to do same.

  • Freedom

    I still would not want to live near her from what I have read on the case.

  • BillyHW

    She’s as guilty as sin.

  • The Italians buggered this up from the get-go.
