Former FBI Agents Says Amanda Knox Is Innocent

September 3, 2010

Victim Meredith Kercher

U.S. (ChattahBox Crime News) – A former lawmaker and FBI agent is currently going over the case of American-born Amanda Knox, who is serving a 26-year sentence in Italy for the murder of British roommate Meredith Kercher. He says he believed, after reviewing the evidence in the case, that she is innocent.

It started off with a bet. After losing the bet with his wife, retired FBI Special Agent Steve Moore began to independently look into the case of Knox. He originally believed she was guilty, but now says that he is completely positive she is innocent in the murder. He looked into the autopsy information, interviews, DNA evidence, trial evidence, and alibis.

“I couldn’t figure out why Amanda and Raffaele [Sollecito, Knox’s boyfriend who was also convicted in the murder] weren’t eliminated on day one as suspects. I kept thinking the smoking gun would pop up — and it didn’t come. I didn’t know why they were in jail.”

According to Moore, there is no DNA evidence at all against Knox. Instead, there was a knife, which she commonly used to cook, that was used to kill Kercher. That knife had her fingerprints, but she used it often enough that it was not strange. Also, the claims that Knox cleaned the knife in her bathroom prove nothing, he says. Her DNA was found in her bathroom, but anyone could have cleaned the knife there.

Moore says that all of the information given in the case was pushed hard by Italian authorities, and that testimony given by Knox, then later recanted, came after she was bullied, questioned for hours, and possibly hit.

The relationship between the U.S. and Italy has been strained since the Amanda Knox case, with accusations that the investigation was mishandled, the media was used to create a witch hunt, and that illegal practices may have been used to score a conviction.

    Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were unanimously found guilty of the murder of Meredith Kercher because the evidence against them was overwhelming.

    They repeatedly told the police a pack of lies in the days after Meredith’s murder.

    On 5 November 2007, Knox and Sollecito were confronted with proof that they had lied and were given another opportunity to tell the truth. However, they both chose to tell the police even more lies.

    Sollecito’s new alibi was shattered by computer forensic evidence and his mobile phone records.

    Knox accused an innocent man, Diya Lumumba, of murdering Meredith despite knowing full well that he was completely innocent. She didn’t recant her false and malicious allegation against Lumumba the whole time he was in prison. She admitted that it was her fault that Lumumba was in prison in an intercepted conversation with her mother.

    Knox’s account of what happened on 2 November 2007 is contradicted by her mobile phone records.

    Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito both gave multiple conflicting alibis. Neither Knox nor Sollecito have credible alibis for the night of the murder despite three attempt each. At the trial, Sollecito refused to corroborate Knox’s alibi that she was at his apartment.

    Rudy Guede’s bloody footprints led straight out of Meredith’s room and out of the house. He didn’t lock Meredith’s door, remove his trainers, go into Filomena’s room or the bathroom that Meredith and Knox shared.

    He didn’t scale the vertical wall outside Filomena’s room or gain access through the window. The break-in was clearly staged. This indicates that somebody who lived at the cottage was trying to deflect attention away from themselves and give the impression that a stranger had broken in and killed Meredith.

    Guede had no reason to stage the break-in and there was no physical evidence that he went into Filomena’s room.

    The scientific police found a mixture of Amanda Knox’s DNA and Meredith’s blood on the floor.

    There was no physical evidence that Rudy Guede went into the blood-spattered bathroom. However, the scientific police found irrefutable proof that Knox and Sollecito tracked Meredith’s blood into this bathroom.

    Amanda Knox’s DNA was found mingled with Meredith’s blood in three different places in the bathroom: on the ledge of the basin, on the bidet, and on a box of Q Tips cotton swabs. Knox’s DNA and Meredith’s blood had united into one single streak on the basin and bidet which means they were deposited simultaneously.

    Sollecito left a visible bloody footprint on the blue bathmat.

    According to two imprint experts, the woman’s bloody shoeprint on the pillow under Meredith’s body matched Knox’s foot size. The bloody shoeprint was incompatible with Meredith’s shoe size.

    Knox’s and Sollecito’s bare bloody footprints were revealed by luminol in the hallway. Knox’s DNA and Meredith’s DNA was found mixed together in one of the bloody footprints.

    An abundant amount of Raffaele Sollecito’s DNA was found on Meredith’s bra clasp. Sollecito must have applied considerable pressure to the clasp in order to have left so much DNA. The hooks on the clasp were damaged which confirms that Sollecito had gripped them tightly.

    Amanda Knox’s DNA was found on the handle of the double DNA knife and a number of independent forensic experts – Dr. Patrizia Stefanoni, Dr. Renato Biondo and Professor Francesca Torricelli – categorically stated that Meredith’s DNA was on the blade.

    Sollecito knew that Meredith’s DNA was on the blade which is why he twice lied about accidentally pricking her hand whilst cooking.

    The defence experts were unable to prove that there had been any contamination. Alberto Intini, head of the Italian police forensic science unit, pointed out that unless contamination has been proved, it does not exist.

    Amanda Knox voluntarily admitted that she involved in Meredith’s murder in her handwritten note to the police on 6 November 2007. She stated on at least four separate occasions that she was at the cottage when Meredith was killed.

    Thank God for people like Steve Moore, wish there were more. Amanda is totally INNOCENT! There was only one person who commited this crime and that is Rudy Guede his DNA is all over the crime scene, and they ruled out the clean up. So it should be case closed Amanda and Raffaelle are innocent and they have who did it which is Rudy. It is not that hard to figure out and instead you have two innocent young people in prison for a crime they did NOT commit. Amanda was mentally and physically abused I totally believe in that interrogation and was terrified, and she was not the one who accused Lummumba. It was the police who pressured her into naming him because of the text message. He told her not to come to work, and she replied back saying ok have a good evening see you later. Which means in America “see you whenever” not litterally see you in a few. For people that wanna know the truth about this injustice go to

    Judge Massei states in his report that there was a clean-up. It wasn’t ruled out at all.

    You weren’t present when Amanda Knox was questioned, so you don’t know that she was mentally and physically abused.

    All the witnesses, including her interpreter, who were actually present all testified under oath that Knox was treated well and wasn’t abused in any way.

    @Beau —– I agree with you —- thank God for Mr Steve Moore. He has illuminated the truth – INNOCENT and has gotten it out there in the public arena. I have believed from the very start that Amanda and Raffaele are innocent people. You are right — to read the true facts behind this case, visit
