“I was angry.”

“I was angry…thinking about what Meredith must have been through.”

“I think everyone’s reaction to something horrible is different.” She’s right!

Why is it that when her housemate was murdered, Knox forgot to feel afraid. A murderer was on the loose and she wanted to carry on studying as if nothing had happened. Why?

“I did a split [in the police station, while Sollecito was being interrogated as a murder suspect]. It felt good to know I still could…”

What happened to the exhausting and abusive 53 hour police interrogation?

“The lead investigator had doubts about Knox from the start…”

Oh, weren’t they justified?

In the Jodi Arias case friends of Travis told the detective to look into Jodi Arias.

Oh, weren’t they justified?

In the Chris Watts case friends of Shan’ann told the detective to look at Watts’ phone; to check the well site…

Oh, weren’t they justified?

“Her behavior was completely inexplicable…”

Not quite. Not so fast…

“Quirky people aren’t criminals…”

“The Amanda Knox story deserves retelling because it happens all the time…?

Oh really? When last were you randomly accused of murder, and then you went on to make a killing, earning a $4 million jackpot deal for your story about how you – and your boyfriend [who got $1 million for his book] – were falsely accused.

“There is no trace of me in the room where Meredith was murdered…”

All things being equal, if you were perfectly innocent, wouldn’t you have noticed Meredith had gone silent early on, tried to get hold of her and found a way to break down her door? Why is it that there isn’t a trace of you? Why is it that you were there that morning – you admitted you were – and yet there’s no evidence of you?

“There is no trace of me in the room where Meredith was murdered…”

No, just on the murder weapon, and did you forget your reading lamp on the bloodstained floor of Meredith’s bedroom? And why would a trace of your boyfriend’s DNA be on Meredith’s bra if you weren’t in the room? And how come Meredith’s bra was cut, and Meredith stabbed, and your boyfriend was a knife freak, he was carrying a knife in his pocket on the night he was arrested. If there was no trace of you, but Meredith was assaulted – including a sexual assault – why is there this fantasy rape story where a brother directs his brother to commit a rape? Why are there psychological traces of you within the scene?

“You’re trying to find the answer in my eyes…”
