12.10 Seattle Native Amanda Knox Pens Tell All Book
After a recent visit to New Day Northwest, I was gifted a copy of Raphaele Sollecito’s book “Honor Bound, My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox.” I have to admit; when the case was going on I didn’t much pay attention to it. However, after watching his compelling extended interview on New Day Northwest, I decided to read his book. I was astonished at the blatant incompetency on the part of the Italian justice system, and the complete lack of evidence linking either Raffaele or Amanda to the crime. If you have even the slightest interest in the case, I highly suggest you read his book. It is well organized, well written and extremely informational.
In case you missed it, Amanda Knox, and now ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were released last year when their sentences were overturned due to lack of evidence, after which she immediately returned to her family in Seattle, Washington where she has since kept a low profile.
Now, Amanda is releasing a book of her own, and I will certainly read it. HarperCollins will publish the memoir of Amanda Knox, the American student accused of murdering her British roommate while studying in Italy in a few months. Her memoir will be called “Waiting to Be Heard,” a reference to her prolonged interment in an Italian jail during a convoluted and at times sloppy trial that eventually saw her and boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito freed in the case of the brutal 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy. Knox, a native of Seattle, reportedly earned $4 million to write about her adventures through the Italian criminal justice system.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Meredith Kercher. She left our world all too soon. R.I.P Meredith.
