Recalling the Horror of Meredith’s Murder
‘When I read reports even now, I find myself skimming past the paragraphs that refer to what actually happened to her because it is so horrific.
‘I think anybody would just need to read in detail or know what happened to her to then question themselves – could they ever forgive someone who did that to their sister or daughter?’”
… Lyle Kercher, Meredith’s Brother
Lyle and Stephanie Kercher attended the court hearing in Florence one year ago when Judge Alessandro Nencini upheld the guilty verdict of the lower court. Both spoke briefly to the press as excerpted above. Gracious in their grief, nevertheless they let it be known that they believe the verdict to be just. In an interview with Sky [excerpted above], Lyle said he would not be able to forgive those responsible for his sister’s death.
Amanda Speaks Out
Meanwhile, Knox released a statement to the media saying she ‘expected better’ from the Italian justice system.
She said: ‘First and foremost it must be recognised that there is no consolation for the Kercher family.
‘Their grief over Meredith’s terrible murder will follow them forever. They deserve respect and support.
‘I am frightened and saddened by this unjust verdict. Having been found innocent before, I expected better from the Italian justice system.
‘The evidence and accusatory theory do not justify a verdict of guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. rather, nothing has changed.’
[Excerpted from the same Daily Mail article]
Despite repeated requests over the years from the Kercher family to keep her distance, Amanda used the occasion of the court ruling to disclose she wrote and mailed a new letter to them.
‘I just want them to know that I really understand that this is incredibly difficult. When the case has been messed up so much, a verdict is no longer consolation for them.
‘The thing that people want when they’ve been victims is just simple acknowledgement – and they deserve respect and that’s been lost. I wish them the best.’
Stephanie, with the patience of a saint, responded: “I am told there was a letter – I have not physically seen it … I don’t have a need to read it at the moment.”
Stephanie reiterated that she does not want to meet Amanda Knox.
‘It’s not something we would want to do at the moment – and I can’t say we ever will. Regardless of a guilty or not guilty verdict, a lot has happened over this amount of time.’
If anything illustrates the empty rhetoric, the corruption of the Amanda Knox innocence campaign, it’s her courting of the family of her murder victim while callously exploiting Meredith’s image and smearing her reputation.
Manipulating Photos: Does it Get More Despicable?
Doesn’t every convicted killer’s social media followers splice together images of the murderer and victim as FRIENDS?
In reality, a photo does not exist of Meredith Kercher and Amanda Knox together. They were not friends. In the multitude of photos posted of Meredith with her real friends, Knox does not appear once. Amanda did not possess any photos of the two together although she postied a photo posing with Laura and Filomena.
