Amanda Knox was reportedly furious when her response was sought regarding a new book that is being written by the murderer of her former roommate, Meredith Kercher. The killer, Rudy Guede, had been sentenced to prison for 16 years for the rape and murder of Kercher, a 21-year-old British student.

Guede is planning to tell his version of the events that went down on the night when Kercher was killed. The 33-year-old is currently on a staged return to freedom on a work-release program from jail. Guede, whose bloodstained fingerprints had been found on Kercher's possessions, has always denied the murder which had taken place in 2007 in Perugia, Italy, Mirror reports. 

Knox, 33, too had spent around four years in prison before she was acquitted of murdering Kercher. Knox had alleged that Guede had tried to blame her for his own crime. Knox and her then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, did four years' time before later being acquitted. When Knox heard that a US publication was looking to reveal Guede's claims about her in the book on Kercher's murder, she was left enraged. Knox has accused the publication of "crafting an article that omits all evidence of my ­innocence to bully me into commenting".

She wrote on Twitter, "I just heard that Rudy Guede, the man who raped & murdered my roommate & blamed me for his crime is planning a "tell-all" book, & that the National Enquirer is crafting an article that strategically omits all evidence of my innocence in an attempt to bully me into commenting."



 

 

She added, "A few questions: Is the article going to point out that Guede had a ­history of burglary, that he left copious DNA at the crime scene, & that he fled the country? Is it going to point out that the Italian Supreme Court, in definitively acquitting Rafaele Sollecito and me cited ‘stunning flaws’ in the investigation & a complete lack of biological traces connecting me to the crime? Is it going to point out that the European Court of Human Rights ruled that my rights were violated during my interrogation? Somehow, I doubt it."



 

 



 

 

In a separate tweet, Knox had written, "You want a comment, CEO Dan Dolan? Here it is: "By publishing this article, you continue to profit off the suffering of Meredith's family, @Raffasolaries, & myself. I look forward to the day that your kind of unethical, irresponsible, exploitative 'journalism' no longer exists."



 

 

Social media users commented in sympathy and showed their support for Knox. One such user had written, "@amandaknox I’m really sorry that after all these years people are still trying to hold you accountable for a crime you didn’t commit, I can’t imagine what you have endured and hope that you can heal and live a happy life the best you can. Big hugs xx."



 

 

Another user had shared, "Sorry that you have to continue to be abused by heartless money mongers. I followed your story from early on, reading articles and books. 2 things quickly became clear: your innocence and what an exceptional human being you are."



 


"The Italian justice system let Meredith and yourselves down so badly. He shouldn’t be allowed out of prison. No one with any ounce of respect will even think of buying his book," commented yet another.
