November 1, 2007 Meredith Kercher was found in Italy surrounded in a pool of blood. She was dead, her throat had been slashed. Italian authorities began their investigation swiftly possibly contaminating evidence. Most of the blood and DNA found was Meredith Kercher’s and Rudy Hermann Guede’s, a man that was in that location during the time Meredith was murdered. So where does Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox fit into all of this?
Raffaele Sollecito was the “brief” boyfriend of Amanda Knox during that time. Amanda Knox claimed she was smoking pot and having sex with Sollecito in another location then went home to find her roommate dead. Sollecito claimed that he couldn’t remember if Knox was with him all night, but then stated she was.
The authorities interrogated Knox as Knox mentioned another guy by the name of Patrick Lumumba. Lumumba was cleared of charges and planned on filing against Knox for defamation of character. However, Knox insisted that the police twisted her claim into what they wanted since they needed to arrest someone.
Evidence of a false break-in surfaced. Investigators focused on a possible interference charge on the investigation.
Meanwhile, the Italian police tracked down Rudy Hermann Guede and arrested him for the involvement of Meredith Kercher’s murder. Remember, they found Guede’s DNA everywhere at the crime scene. But how?
Rudy Hermann Guede supplied information during the trial. Guede’s story was reasonably believable.
Rudy Hermann Guede claimed he went to the house with Kercher, they were “friends.” Guede was allegedy into drugs, and a drifter of the apartment traveling unannounced at times. Guede stated that they had consential sex. He went to the bathroom with his iPod. Evidence proved Guede’s stool inside of the toilet.
“Then I heard Meredith’s and Amanda’s voices, arguing about some money missing,” he said. “I was listening to music and at one point I heard a very loud scream.” Guede said he rushed into Kercher’s bedroom where he saw an unidentified man who tried to attack him. Backing down into the hallway, Guede said he heard the man say “Let’s go, there’s a black man in the house.”
After this he seen a shadow, and the shadow turned out to be Knox.
The situation was something he could not afford to be in the middle of so he left, for Germany. Of coarse he went to a nightclub first. Guede was arrested in travel, without a ticket. His caregiver from earlier in life called him a liar and lazy to work. As he grew up he was thought of as a person that could steal from another claimed some that knew of him. Rudy Hermann Guede was convicted of murder and sentenced to 30 years during October of 2008. He awaits appeal.
It was evident that a break-in plan would most likely be that of Guede’s way of thinking.
Italy had their classic liar, thief, and alleged petty drug dealer, but what else did they need? The full circle, where is the murderer?
Amanda Knox and Kercher had disagreements over money, lax hygiene, and the men Knox would bring home. If you look at the photo attached to this article, you will notice Knox does not appear to be innocently coming out of a spa as she does appear in the Italian courtroom.
Rumors have surfaced that Kercher’s murder surrounded a drug debt involving Knox and Guede. Other rumors surround Knox, Sollecito, and Guede high on meth (or another strong drug) resulting in becoming out of control like wild animals from the Manson family. Knox admitted to smoking drugs, Guede was known for selling. Knox and Kescher argued about drugs. The circle was coming together.
The only porton that breaks the circle is when the prosecution claims that a “sex game” was involved. Kercher’s head was injured as if someone pulled her head backwards. Perhaps the prosecution thought that the sex game contributed to this act. However, the proof was not substantial enough in reality. Most likely, her head was pulled back prior to the throat being slashed. The prosecution noted that Kercher was half naked when found. This would lead to the belief of a sexual assault, by which the prosecution entered in as evidence to their claims.
Authorities claimed Knox’s blood was found on the handle of a knife. They also claimed that the blood of Raffaele Sollecito was on the blade. But everyone argues this notion no matter how you slice it.
Thus far, a false break-in, Sollecito’s claims of not rememering if Knox was with him all night, Knox’s evident dislike in Kercher, and Guede’s flight to Germany. Three convictions, one murderer, if no one talks factual sense, everyone goes down. But there is one common denominator, Amanda Knox. Whether it be drugs or men. Italian prosecutors are at full circle, the ring has been convicted.
Raffaele Sollecito was found guilty today of 5 charges and sentenced to 25 years.
Amanda Knox was found guilty today of 6 charges and sentenced to 26 years.
