Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial In Italy

Synopsis: Update: On Oct. 3, 2011, Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were acquitted of murder on appeal in Italy. DNA experts determined the DNA on the so-called murder weapon was actually from bread crumbs (as in victim Meredith Kercher handling the bread and some crumbs ending up on the knife). Knox's conviction for slandering Diya Lumumba was upheld, though evidence came out that Knox had implicated the bar owner after 50 hours of interrogation without a lawyer present. As of Oct. 3, 2011, Knox's parents still face trial for slander for accusing Italian police of brutality and intimidation.

[ BELL TOLLS ]

[ MAN SINGING

IN AFRICAN DIALECT ]

BUON GIORNO.

WE ARE LOOKING:

FOR MEREDITH KERCHER.

MEREDITH LIVES HERE,

BUT SHE'S, UH --

SHE'S NOT HERE RIGHT NOW.

I AM RAFFAELE SOLLECITO.

AND THIS IS AMANDA KNOX.

UNA STUDENTESSA AMERICANA.

SHE LIVES HERE:

WITH MEREDITH.

THERE ARE FOUR OF US

ALL TOGETHER.

BENE. WE FOUND

SIGNORA KERCHER'S CELLPHONE

THIS MORNING OUTSIDE A HOUSE

ON VIA SPERANDIO.

WE THOUGHT MAYBE

IT WAS STOLEN AND DUMPED.

WELL, I'VE CALLED MEREDITH

A FEW TIMES THIS MORNING.

SHE DIDN'T ANSWER.

I GUESS THAT'S WHY.

THIS IS STARTING

TO FREAK ME OUT A LITTLE BIT.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

WELL, WHEN I CAME HOME

THIS MORNING,

I NOTICED THAT:

THE FRONT DOOR WAS OPEN.

AND THEN I WENT UPSTAIRS,

AND THERE WAS A BROKEN WINDOW

IN ONE OF THE BEDROOMS

AND SEVERAL DROPS OF BLOOD

ON THE FLOOR IN THE BATHROOM.

SO, AMANDA RAN BACK

TO MY PLACE AND GOT ME.

WE WERE JUST UP THERE,

AND IT LOOKS LIKE

SOMEONE BROKE IN.

DID YOU CALL THE POLICE?

I THOUGHT:

YOU WERE THE POLICE.

WE'RE THE POLIZIA POSTALE.

WE INVESTIGATE STOLEN COMPUTERS,

CREDIT CARDS, AND CELLPHONES.

UH, WE CALLED

THE EMERGENCY NUMBER,

THE 112,

A FEW MINUTES AGO,

AND THE CARABINIERI SAID

THEY WOULD SEND SOMEONE.

WHILE WE'RE WAITING,

THOUGH,

MAYBE CAN YOU COME INSIDE

AND TAKE A LOOK.

I'M SCARED

TO GO IN THERE AGAIN.

SURE.

[ DOOR OPENS ]

THE BATHROOM:

IS THIS WAY.

WHEN I WENT TO TAKE A SHOWER

THIS MORNING,

I NOTICED THERE WERE

SOME DROPS OF BLOOD.

I THOUGHT:

MAYBE SOMEBODY CUT THEMSELVES.

HELLO?

OH, THAT'S FILOMENA,

MY OTHER ROOMMATE.

WHAT'S GOING ON?

SOMEONE BROKE YOUR WINDOW.

MY GOD.

Man:
ANYTHING MISSING?

MY LAPTOP AND MY JEWELRY --

EVERYTHING IS HERE.

WHERE'S MEREDITH?

I DON'T KNOW.

HER DOOR IS LOCKED.

WE KNOCKED A FEW TIMES,

BUT THERE WAS NO ANSWER.

MEREDITH:

NEVER LOCKS HER DOOR.

[ KNOCK ON DOOR ]

MEREDITH.

MEREDITH!

APRA LA PORTA!

UM, I WOULD LIKE TO REPORT

A BREAK-IN.

[ SPEAKING ITALIAN ]

APRA LA PORTA!

[ TELEPHONE RINGS ]

HELLO?

MOM, SOMEONE BROKE IN

TO OUR HOUSE.

WHAT?

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

THEY'RE BREAKING DOWN

MEREDITH'S DOOR RIGHT NOW.

W-WHY?

TRY AGAIN.

AMANDA?

AMANDA, TALK TO ME.

[ GASPS ]

UN PIEDE.

UN PIEDE.

OH, MY GOD,

THERE'S A FOOT.

THEY SAID SOMETHING

ABOUT A FOOT. I DON'T

UNDERSTAND THE REST.

A FOOT?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN, A FOOT?

MY GOD. I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S

A FOOT OR IT'S A WHOLE BODY.

EVERYBODY OUT!

VIA!

IMMEDIATAMENTE! VIA!

[ TELEPHONE BEEPS ]

WHAT WAS THAT ALL ABOUT?

MY GOD!

THAT WAS AMANDA.

SHE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT A --

ABOUT A BREAK-IN.

[ CAMERA SHUTTERS CLICKING ]

Reporter:
[ British accent ]

WE'RE HERE IN PERUGIA,

WHERE NEWS IS COMING IN

ON THE MURDER:

OF A YOUNG BRITISH STUDENT.

AS YOU CAN SEE BEHIND ME,

THE HOUSE IS BEING INVESTIGATED

BY THE POLICE AT THE MOMENT,

WITH FORENSICS TEAMS

STILL WORKING.

ALTHOUGH THE AUTHORITIES HAVE

YET TO MAKE A FORMAL STATEMENT,

WE'RE EXPECTING THEM

TO DO SO SHORTLY.

MORE NEWS AS WE HAVE IT.

THIS IS UNREAL.

I CAN'T BELIEVE

THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING.

I KNOW.

[ MID-TEMPO ROCK MUSIC PLAYING ]

I SEE THAT I'M NOT...

[ HISSING ]

BUONA GIORNATA.

BUONA GIORNATA.

BUONA GIORNATA, SIGNORE.

THAT'S ITALIAN

FOR "HAVE A NICE DAY, SIR."

YEAH, WHATEVER.

LET'S TRY TO MAKE IT LAST

HEY.
