The Scientific Police undertook an extensive fingerprinting exercise in the cottage, but found very little of evidential value. There was a single bloody print left by Rudy Guede in Meredith's bedroom, but no other prints of his anywhere in the cottage. No prints at all were found in the passage or the the small bathroom adjacent to Meredith's room. Only one print of Amanda Knox was found anywhere in the cottage.
The following picture is a fingerprint map from the cottage, produced by the Perugia police.
