The Murder of Meredith Kercher:About
Seek not the favor of the multitude; it is seldom got by honest and lawful means. But seek the testimony of few; and number not voices, but weigh them. - Immanuel Kant
Not long after her arrest Amanda Knox's family acquired the services of Gogerty Marriott, a public relations crisis firm, to manage the public impression of Amanda Knox in America through favorable press coverage given in exchange for access to the family. The result is that six years later public knowledge of the case has deteriorated rather than improved with time.
The Murder of Meredith Kercher is a project launched as an effort to address the confusion surrounding the current trials in Italy, presented without falsehoods or hyperbole. For years the accuseds' families and their supporters have waged an extensive misinformation campaign, in effect building a fantasy world filled with wide-ranging conspiracies, allegations of Satanism, and reinforcing race-specific standards of justice to avoid confronting the real indications of the accuseds' culpability. While some people buy into it, we sense that many more suspect they're not getting the whole story. They aren't.
You are encouraged to browse through the Supreme Court report explaining the reasons for remanding the case back to the appeal level. This document identifies serious flaws in the reasoning behind the acquittal and is absolutely essential for understanding why the proceedings against Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito continue. It, as with all the motivations and trial transcripts, has been translated from the Italian by volunteers who wish to share information rather than withhold or distort it.
This site is volunteer-driven and is meant to improve the signal-to-noise ratio of discussion about the case. We will never accept donations. The needless death of Meredith Kercher has been manipulated for the personal gain of various parties who see value in marketing a version of the story that doesn't match reality -- in so doing these parties have made certain that not only was Meredith's life trampled upon, her death has been too.
