TRUE CRIME On this episode of Those Conspiracy Guys we discuss the still mysterious case of the murder of Meredith Kircher, more famously known as the Amanda Knox case. Knox and her boyfriend Raphael Sollecito were arrested for the murder of Kircher in 2007 and spent 4 years in jail until their case was unprecidentedly thrown out and they were set free. Kircher was brutally murdered in the home she and Knox shared in a small Italian town called Perugia. They were both on a study abroad trip and Knox and Kircher only knew each other for a couple of days. Knox also only knew her then lover Sollecito for a couple of weeks and made the case all the more mysterious. A man called Rudy Guede, a known burglar, was also arrested for the crime as well as Patrick Lumumba, Knox's boss in her waitressing job. The police incompetence in this case was astounding and the real killer could still be on the loose. Many think Knox and Sollecito were guilty and the legal system in Italy was torn apart with the release of the two in 2011. The case went to the Supreme Court and the appeal fell in Knox's favour but not after her and Sollecito's lives were ruined by salacious tabloid press. The facts in this one are very much left to interpretation and Claire and I discuss at length the intricacies of the case; the suppositions made by the prosecution including the public prosecutor who thought he was some sort of rock star, Guiliano Mignini. We also discuss the role of the tabloid media in the case and how they swayed the public to presume guilt. Knox is still thought by some to have 'got away with murder' but what do you think?
