http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/01/u...y-killing-vows-to-fight-extradition.html?_r=0 By accident I happen to have run across an account of this case in the afterword to a book about another famous Italian murder case, The Monster of Florence, by Preston/Spezi. The authors included that afterword about Knox in the second edition to underscore the rather unhinged behavior of the Italian prosecutor who was in charge of both cases, Giuliano Mignini. He is a modern day Joe McCarthy who, instead of hunting communists, hunts devil worshippers, a large network of whom, he believes, are at work in the world today, killing innocent people as part of their rituals. Preston believes Knox is completely innocent: http://blog.seattlepi.com/dempsey/2...ist-doug-preston-on-meredith-kerchers-murder/ and, going beyond the afterword in the other book, has put out a whole separate book in her defense: https://www.amazon.com/Trial-By-Fury-Internet-Savagery-ebook/dp/B00CDU1H98 In this article published in The Atlantic in 2006, Preston encapsulates his experiences researching in Italy with Spezi and relates how, when he and Spezi determine Mignini has prosecuted the wrong man in the Monster of Florence murders, they are harrassed and jailed, and Spezi is accused of being the Monster of Florence. This is the kind of guy Mignini is. http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2006/07/the-monster-of-florence/304981/ I think it's important for anyone with an opinion about this case to hear what Preston has to say. It's hard to believe such a thing could exist in the modern world, but it looks to me like Knox was outright framed by a mentally unstable person with a medieval witch-hunter's mentality. I don't believe she should be extradited.
