Blind Items Revealed #1

November 3, 2017

This infamous former A lister on par with Casey Anthony is trolling the family of a deceased person simply to try and make a few bucks either with another book deal or documentary. She was supposed to be filming a tv show this winter/spring but is having trouble nailing it down. She was told trolling might help get her some attention.

If she needs money and attention, I suggest she contact Steve Hirsch at VividCeleb. Casey Anthony too.

off topic, but i'm counting the days to black friday for the reveals!

Guesser said...

Suddenly, she is her close friend, and she turns the tribute around to be about her.I do not know what to make of her.

Patience Fullerton said...

@Guesser, I can help:

She is a sociopath and a murderer.

Diana said...

She's lucky to be here in the US and not in jail, innocent or guilty. She should just stay out of the spotlight and lead a quiet life. Drawing attention to herself does her no favors.

Agree with Patience +1

Why isnt this posting as my made up name? this site used to let me change/add name. Bit now theres only one name and no other to choose from. Am I doing something wrong?

sandybrook said...

Wasn't it her plan to go back to Italy again and she had to be talked out of it because going back meant going back to jail?

Hannah said...

Ehhh just do a sex tape already. No one cares about her anymore, wish she’d gotten shived

roxy said...

I'm on the fence about whether or not she murdered that girl but I'm not on the fence with she's shady and a bottom feeder.

October said...

She just needs to go to school, start using mother's maiden name, just shut up and be grateful she's alive and not in jail.

She's not right in the head, but no, she's not a murderer like Casey Anthony. The guy who did it is in jail.

+1 anonymous. i find it sad that people buy into the hoopla and don't look at the evidence, which exonerates her. socially awkward girl? 100%. guilty of a murder? no.

I'm amazed how much all the spin her folks/surrogates did worked. Whereas everyone agrees on Casey A, this one has doubters. That poor Meredith's family.

Kelly, make sure you have a blogger account associated with your G+ account. If you aren't careful, G+ will revert to your full name accross all properties, like youtube. Pissed me off when they tried to start using my real name there, but I put a stop to that BS right quick.

texasrose said...

If she needs money I'm sure Stephen Hirsch over at Vivid would sign her to a contract.

Cee Kay said...

Wow. EVERYBODY on the original blind was posting about how "she's innocent" and that Enty needed to "leave her alone." Now there are plenty saying she's guilty. I personally do believe she was involved, and there are no "facts" to entirely exonerate her.

I know that everyone wants Amanda Knox to be innocent, wants to believe that she was railroaded, yada yada, and mostly, it's because she's pretty (and also, because she has rich parents who were able to hire a PR firm, but I digress). Americans are pretty shallow! They have an affinity for pretty narcissists. But if you actually look at the evidence, I think it certainly meets the threshold of deserving an indictment and prosecution, even if it doesn't quite meet American standards of "beyond a reasonable doubt". However, the circumstantial evidence is such that I think it does meet the lower standard of "more probable than not" that Knox either did it, or was complicit in the crime, in person.

1) The burglary, without question, was staged. There was no evidence that Guede did this (which is why he was not convicted of this lesser included offense) and plenty that pointed to Knox & Sollecito.

2) Rudy Guede, who was certainly a perpetrator, also certainly could not have acted alone.

3) Knox & Sollecito both indisputably lied about their alibis, which are rather easily contradicted by phone & computer evidence, as well as by the testimony of her roommate, Filomena Romanelli.

4) After Sollecito admitted to lying to give her an alibi, Knox immediately revised her story and pointed the finger at an innocent guy, Patrick Lumumba. The idea that Knox was somehow the victim of a torturous, long, brutal interrogation by the Italian police strains credulity, to put it mildly. First of all, her actual interrogation did not last more than an hour. Secondly, in her letter to her lawyers written a few days afterward, Knox gives a timeline for her questioning which coincides with what the police said; moreover, she makes no mention in the letter of being denied food, sleep, toilet breaks, etc. She was also provided with an interpreter, who testified at her trial. She was interviewed as a witness, and in Italy, the police don't have to provide attorneys to witnesses when they question them. When Knox signed her statement (in which she placed herself at the scene), the interview was terminated, as she could no longer be questioned without an attorney, since she was at that point a suspect.

5) Knox DNA evidence. Knox's DNA was found mixed with Kerchner's in 5 different places, if I remember correctly. There were also footprints in Luminol which were Knox's, mixed with blood of indeterminate origin. How much weight you give to this depends, again, on how credulous you are. Is it likely that, sometime before the crime, Knox was walking around barefoot in her own blood? Is her statement that she used a bloody bathmat to slide back to her room credible? I'd say both are unlikely.

Furthermore, there's the knife, which came from Sollecito's apartment, which had both Knox's DNA & Kerchner's DNA on it. The police, upon finding it, immediately noted the pronounced smell of bleach, and it was clear that it had been recently cleaned. It is often alleged by the pro-Knox group that the testing was faulty, or that there was contamination of the samples. Of course, were that true (it isn't), it would also apply to Rudy Guede's samples. Since he is supposed by the Knox crowd to be the lone culprit, logic is suspended so that his samples can conveniently be considered legitimate and authentic.

Now, that's a lot of circumstantial evidence (this post is long enough, and I'm too tired to get into the whole "moving the body" & "bra clasp" evidence). Contrary to what most Americans think, circumstantial evidence is not "bad", and prosecutors put truckloads of criminals in jail all the time, by building circumstantial cases. In this case, there are some complicating factors: all three of the accused, Knox, Sollecito, & Guede, changed, recanted, or amended their stories multiple times (though I would note that this always seemed to be in direct response to some aspect of an alibi crumbling). There was probably some crime scene contamination when the police first got there. There wasn't enough material to do re-tests on some of the critical DNA evidence.

So, if someone wants to make the case that Knox & Sollecito should have been acquitted, under the American standard of "beyond a reasonable doubt", I'm OK with that. I was OK with OJ Simpson being acquitted as well, based on the evidence and testimony that the jury heard. But too many things have to be explained away, in an illogical fashion, for either OJ or Amanda Knox to be "innocent". It seems pretty clear to me that she did it, or at a minimum, participated in staging an elaborate attempt to cover up the crime.

I was never Charmed One. Why am I Charmed one ?

No I'm not Charity Channing either.

Hbomb said...

Great recap of the evidence! I also believe she had some involvement. Too many lies and deception to be honest. Her DNA is mixed with kerchers and sollecito was on the bra strap. Americans bought the whole 'Italy is stuck in the stone ages with their forensics practices' story. They eventually let her go to avoid backlash plain and simple. I live in Seattle, never have I seen her but if I did I'd state daggers. Usually when someone gets caught they get prosecuted in the court of public opinion i.e. Casey Anthony or Brock Turner. She plays victim. Makes me sick.

AIP said...

Bitch is, was, and possibly always will be, dodgy as fuck. Whether she was directly involved with the murder is unknowable at this stage - I found her statements and behaviour very suspect at the time, but I also think she wasn’t right in the head either by virtue of narcissistic traits or drugs; plus the prosecutor messed up by overly focussing on “witchcraft”. From what I can see this only aided the “Innocent” campaign in the US by allowing far too many people to make outdated and stupid assumptions about Italy being a Catholic country and women being punished for being sexually active.

just sayin' said...

wow. the amanda knox case makes me think, "there but for the grace of god go i".

americanpanda said...

This case is so fucked up.
JD Jones - you gave a great summary - but at the same time, I'm just playing devils advocate - the crime scene was contaminated from the get go , i remember they swore it was the kitchen knife that was the murder weapon but it didn't match with the wounds on the victim.
Everything - just everything about this case is so messed up.
Sollecito had a hard on for Knox - in the sense he just wanted her to be guilty, and lets face it amanda is not likeable and clearly sociopathic and i don't think she did it but knows who did. i think she knew something was going to go down that night.
