Crime scene picture of bathmat from the small bathroom
One of the pieces of forensic evidence found in the cottage was a bare footprint, apparently in diluted blood, on the bathmat in the small bathroom of the cottage. Three samples taken from the bathmat were confirmed as Meredith's blood.[1] The footprint was measured and compared with footprints taken from the right of of Knox, Sollecito and Guede. The court examined the measurements in detail[2] and concluded that the print was a near-perfect match for Sollecito's foot but could not have been attributed to Guede or Knox.

The evidence becomes even clearer when the metrics are put into tabular form:[3]
