The luminol prints could have been bleach but the problem there is that there is no Mk DNA there unless the bleach killed it. In any event it could be one or the others:either blood but not match MK DNA or bleach but no blood. Bleach would have killed the DNA but not the blood yet the more sensitive test that was better than luminol tested negative for blood. An alternative 3rd situation is the bleach stuff from the shower i mentioned which is defense argument.
    How does the defense account for bleach, used to clean a shower, still staining feet after at least two showers were taken at the cottage. It's likely that Knox and Meredith also showered before going out for Halloween, so if the shower was cleaned on October 31, at least four showers were taken between then and November 2, when Knox could have stained her feet with cleaning residue that was revealed with luminol. It sounds very unlikely ... that bleach cleaning residue was staining feet after four showers had been taken, all of which would have included non-bleach cleaning products.

    Why wasn't there the same evidence of Meredith tracking bleach residue when she showered at noon on November 1?

    It is not inconsistent to say both arguments, if they only found 4, that proves their factual innocence IMO. If they did not test everything that leaves doubt on whether they did it but doubt is enough to get them off.
    Thanks. So it's like a finger print, but it's a palm print. So Guede's palm print has been connected to the pillow case. The shoe print has been connected to Knox's shoe size. Were they both there, or was it Guede and someone else with the same shoe size as Knox?

    Four DNA evidence items connect the culprits to the victim's bedroom.

    • single sample of Guede due to sexual assault
    • single sample of Sollecito on Meredith's bra
    • single sample of Guede on Meredith's shirt
    • single sample of Guede on Meredith's bag.


    Four samples of DNA does not usually mean that DNA should be dismissed. It usually means that they got lucky, found four samples and now can look for justice for the murder of Meredith Kercher. Most murders are lucky if there is one DNA sample, yet in this case, the room is expected to be raining DNA?

    There's also a complete absence of Knox DNA on her possessions in Meredith's bedroom ... this is what Knox has said in her defense. There is oodles of DNA from Guede and no DNA from Knox, so she must be innocent, but that isn't entirely true. There are three Guede samples, one Sollecito sample, prints belonging to all three if we include the bathmat and more evidence in the hallway, living room, large bathroom and Filomina's bedroom. Evidence of Guede is no more or less than evidence against Knox and Sollecito.

    Okay, caught up on the end of the last thread...

    This pic is titled 'MK lamp', looks like it's on the floor?

    So where was AK's lamp?

    Here's a pic of the room/bed, I really fail to see any staging or clean up:

    There were questions about the duvet, whether the blood on it was soaked or dripped:

    I am convinced that AK and RS were done cleaning up when the, whatever they're called it wasn't the pd though, IIRC, came to return the cell phone.

    I haven't joined the new discussion because a lot of the links I used in the last discussion are gone now. I did think that after looking at all the evidence in the past that she and RS were involved. If she is found guilty again and the U.S. doesn't extradite her it will be a case of harboring a fugitive. JMO

    Some evidence used was questionable, but there was more than enough, IMO, to believe she did it.

    Amanda Knox retrial: Prosecutor calls for 30-year sentence
    By Hada Messia and Laura Smith-Spark, CNN
    updated 10:35 AM EST, Tue November 26, 2013

    Rome (CNN) -- Amanda Knox should receive a 30-year sentence for the 2007 killing of British exchange student Meredith Kercher, an Italian prosecutor said at her retrial Tuesday.

    Prosecutor Alessandro Crini also called for a 26-year sentence for Knox's former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito.

    The retrial at an appeals court in the Italian city of Florence began in September .

    Sollecito and Knox were convicted in 2009 of killing Kercher, 21, who was found stabbed in November 2007 in the villa that she and Knox rented in the central Italian university town of Perugia....

    The only staging I can possibly make out in that room is the duvet cover being thrown over her and the door closed and locked, nothing else looks like an attempt to make anything appear to be anything other than what it was, a room where a lovely young lady lost her life.

    And if the foot measurements were taken from that bathroom mat imprint, I would be fairly surprised, soft nappy material wicks liquid, how could they get a true size from that?

    IIRC, the imprint showed that the person who left it had a hammer toe. RS has a hammer toe.

    If you look at this video you'll see it's not Raffaele's print.
