Amanda Knox

Amanda Knox

Diana Sawyer has landed the first interview with Amanda Knox on an ABC News special slated for Tuesday, April 30 at 10:00 p.m.

The interview is to promote Knox’s  book, “Waiting to Be Heard: A Memoir,” which will be published by HarperCollins on April 30, 2013.

As everyone who hasn’t lived under a rock knows, Amanda Knox is the American college junior who was convicted in December 2009 of murdering her English roommate. After spending four years in an Italian prison, she was released after a new trial cleared her of charges.

Amanda Knox: Waiting to Be HeardThe ABC press release says Knox’s book reveals details she has never previously shared about the trial and the case that riveted millions around the world. The murder was particularly savage.

Knox has never told her story, but like everyone else who has been in the center of a sensational crime, sooner or later there is a book. Whether it is to clear her name, to repay her parents who made a new trial possible, or to personally cash in, you be the judge.

One name not mentioned in the ABC release is the name of the victim, Meredith Kercher. There’s no doubt Knox’s trial was based on dubious information. I don’t think anyone will ever know the details of the terrible night of the murder. What information has come to light has cleared Knox but what seems unforgivable is how the victim’s name – Meredith Kercher – seems to have been erased.

Look for huge ratings for this one.


  1. Granted it is always sad that the world doesn’t remember the victims of a crime years later.

    But of course, if the media, the tabloids etc and the Perugian authorities had not unfairly made this common place murder ( a burglar caught in the act, killing the resident) into a story about sexual orgies and satanic rituals and hadn’t wrongly imprisoned Amanda Knox the public would have forgotten Meredith Kercher long ago.

    In fact, it is clear that nobody has forgotten Meredith Kercher.

  2. Also missing was any real questions. There is so much evidence and Diana Sawyer didn’t ask a single question about anything material. Obviously this was a requirement of the interview being granted but what does that say about Sawyer that she would agree to something like that?

    “There’s no doubt Knox’s trial was based on dubious information. I don’t think anyone will ever know the details of the terrible night of the murder. ”

    This is not true. While it may be true that most Americans will never know what happened anyone interested in the case can read the original court documents and figure out with certainty a lot of what happened.

    Knox participated in the murder of Meredith Kercher. The evidence is so strong that if you choose to ignore 80% of it the remainder would still be sufficient to convict her in any court.

    The most recent decision in the case that set Knox free has been voided. A new trial will begin Sept 30, 2013. It is expect that Knox will be convicted. Hopefully the reporting will be better this time and people will actually get the facts. If you are interested in reading about this case may I suggest where we have all the evidence and court documents — many of them translalted with more to come. Guaranteed that when someone learns the truth their opinion of Knox will be that she is guilty.
