Monica Napoleoni's Testimony (Hellmann) (English)
Summary of Monica Napoleoni's Testimony
- Monica Napoleoni was tasked with investigating claims made by Luciano Aviello that he lived in Perugia at the time of the murder and that his brother and an accomplice killed Meredith in a bungled art theft.
- Aviello had testified that he lived at 11 Via della Pergola but no such address exists or has ever existed. Further, none of the streets connecting to Via della Pergola have a number 11.
- Carlo Dalla Vedova for Amanda Knox reminded Napoleoni that Aviello had said "perhaps number 11" and asked if any of the other properties were investigated. Napoleoni responded that they were and that Aviello did not live at those either.
- Napoleoni testified that there was not record of Aviello or his brother ever living in Perugia. That the claim that Aviello was staying at a property made available to him by Salvatore Menzo was false.
- Napoleoni testified that Aviello was also involved in the false collaboration of some other murders which occurred around the same time and that collaboration had him living somewhere else.
- Napoleoni testified that efforts were made to find the brother but that he could not be found.
