Amanda Knox is Innocent of Brutal Murder, Retired FBI Agent Claims

FBI Special Agent Steve Moore once believed Amanda Knox was guilty of murder now says he has no doubt that she is innocent.  The retired agent told Good Morning America, ”When Amanda Knox gets out, if she needs a roommate, I’ll send my daughter over… The evidence is completely conclusive.”

Moore, a FBI veteran with 25 years experience who investigated murders around the world before retiring two years ago, independently researched and analyzed Amanda Knox’s case for the past year while she waited for her appeal.

Knox, now 22, has spent nearly three years in an Italian prison since the November 2007 arrest for the murder of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher. Kercher was found sexually assaulted and her throat slashed, her half naked body under a duvet in her bedroom in the home shared with Knox.  Knox and her Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were both convicted of murder in December 2009 after a nearly a year long trial. A third person, an Ivory Coast drifter named Rudy Guede, whose DNA was found at the crime scene, was convicted of taking part in the homicide in an earlier trial.

At first, Moore said, he firmly believed Knox was guilty as charged. ”The police said she is. She was arrested,” he said. Moore said his wife encouraged him to look into Knox’s case.  Moors has never spoken to Knox’s family or attorneys. In November, Moore obtained the crime scene video, autopsy photos and legal documents. He spent weeks poring through them. According to Moore his opinion quickly changed

He said, “I couldn’t figure out why Amanda and Raffaele weren’t eliminated on day one as suspects, I kept thinking the smoking gun would pop up — and it didn’t come. I didn’t know why they were in jail.”

The investigation found none of Knox’s DNA — no hair, blood or fingerprints — in the bedroom where Kercher was murdered. ”There is no DNA evidence. What they’re saying is that whoever killed Meredith cleaned up in Amanda’s bathroom. That’s all they say,” Moore said. “They found Amanda’s DNA in her own bathroom? Astounding.”

Moore said he spent hours watching video of Italian police officials combing through the crime scene and was shocked at what he saw. Moore says,”they were doing unsound forensic techniques that lead to cross contamination. Their techniques were horrible, if you showed that video tape in American court you would have lost more of your evidence.”

He also criticized Italian authorities for their interrogation of Knox, which he compared to tactics used by “third-world intelligence agencies.”  He drew those comparison from tactics that included her being questioned for hours, and at times when she would be exhausted.  Knox was given”no food, no coffee, no bathroom breaks — nothing,” Moore said.

Knox’s appeal is tentatively scheduled to begin Nov. 24. A new panel of two judges and six jurors from Perugia will reexamine Knox’s case. A decision is expected by March.

Knox’s appeal also called for an independent review of the DNA evidence, a request denied by a judge during her trial.
