Famed FBI Profiler and Murder Expert John Douglas Says Amanda Knox Innocent

A famous (among law enforcement personnel) murder expert, John Douglas, was intereviewed on the murder case of Amanda Knox in Italy.  Douglas comes with impressive credentials.

Since retiring as head investigator for the National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime at the FBI, Douglas now travels the world hired by international and domestic law enforcement and defense teams who request his help in investigations.  He studied the evidence in the Knox murder case and concluded that Knox and her boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, had nothing to do with the crime. He said:
Two people [were] convicted that should have never been convicted. The media pictured Amanda as a cold-blooded murderer. Frankly, I was surprised that they were charged. I was surprised by the conviction. The appeal is wrong. It’s wrong because of the lack of concrete evidence. No forensic evidence, no behavioral evidence. Nothing points to their guilt. They’ve got nothing.

If anybody wants to understand the reasons why Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were convicted of murder, I recommend reading the translations of the official court documents and court testimony. They are available online at the Meredith Kercher wiki website:

This WAS and still is a great blog. If you're following the case still, Douglas is STILL standing up for both Knox and Sollecito. :)
