    That's what I said a few pages back. It was easier when they had a common purpose and common fate - now not so much.

    'Stranded and trapped' Amanda Knox tells of guilt at falsely accusing barman of Meredith Kercher's murder and vows to convince British student's family of her innocence


    • Knox says she 'struggles' at wrongly accusing Patrick Lumumba
    • Insists lawyers were wrong to say she was happy to let him languish in jail
    • Claims she remains 'traumatised' over Meredith's 2007 death
    • Admits proving innocence to Kercher family is 'big rock to overturn'
    • Says she feels 'trapped', 'desperate' and 'stranded' in wake of re-conviction
    • Reveals she has been targeted by death threats and a stalker
    • Says new college friends give her 'Oh my God face' when they realise who she is

    By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
    PUBLISHED: 12:12, 8 February 2014 | UPDATED: 13:28, 8 February 2014


    Amanda Knox has spoken of her guilt at falsely accusing barman Patrick Lumumba of murdering British student Meredith Kurcher, admitting: 'I know why he hates me.'Lumumba was held in custody for two weeks after Knox, 26, told police she had 'covered her ears as he killed' Meredith in her bedroom of the house she shared with her fellow student in Italy.

    As a result of the false accusation, Lumumba was dragged from his home in front of his children and wife in a dawn raid and taken to jail only being released when a university professor provided him with a rock solid alibi.

    Knox in 2007 with then boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, who was also reconvicted of Meredith's murder last month

    Now Knox, who was last month re-convicted along with ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito for Meredith's killing in Perugia in 2007, has admitted her guilt at accusing Lumbumba, which she has always claimed was as a result of pressure from police.
    In a wide-ranging interview with the Guardian, she told how she has 'really struggled with what happened with Patrick' and, asked if she could understand why he hated her, replied: 'Yes, Patrick was greatly hurt by what happened and never got answers from me. Granted, I was in a position where I couldn't give answers. But if you read what I said after my interrogations, I said I could not testify against him, and yet his lawyer continues to say I was going to let him languish in prison...'
    Knox said her false confession was as a result of threats from police and the mental strain caused by their interrogations.

    Tragic: Knox says she still hopes to convince the Kercher family of her innocence and said she was still 'traumatised' by Meredith's death

    Recalling the moment she made her false accusation, she said: 'When I named Patrick, I just started weeping. I thought, "Oh my God", it must be true what they're (the police) saying. I must have witnessed my friend's murder somehow and now I'm traumatised enough to not even remember it.'
    Knox was convicted of slandering Lumumba and ordered to pay him 22,000 euros in 2011, and he was also later awarded 8,000 euros in damages by the Italian state but he rejected this to pursue a claim through the European Court of Human Rights.
    Knox, who was this week given a lifeline when it emerged the judge who convicted her of the crime for a second time may have breached legal rules, also spoke of her determination to convince the Kercher family of her innocence, although she admitted it was a 'really big rock to overturn'.
    The Seattle native, who is back studying in her home city, said she felt 'stranded and trapped' by the latest verdict and was 'never going to be OK with the idea that someone can quote some judge's decision and say I'm a convicted murderer'.
    She also said it was a struggle when meeting people at her college, with new acquaintances giving her an 'oh-my-God face' when they realise who they are talking to.
    Knox, who said it was 'literally impossible for her to have committed the crime with the evidence they (the police) have', claimed she had received death threats since returning to America and had had someone following her.
    She said she was trying to stay positive, adding: 'I'm just trying to stay in the present moment, just do things, because otherwise it's overwhelming.'

    Knox is trying to build a new life back in America with boyfriend James Terrano

    Knox and Sollecito were charged with murdering and sexually assaulting Meredith in 2007, after she was found semi-naked and with her throat cut in the bedroom of her house in Perugia.

    Initially, both were convicted in 2009 and Knox was sentenced to 26 years and Sollecito to 25 years but then in 2011 the verdicts were sensationally overturned and both were allowed to go free.

    But last year, in a case that has been marked with numerous twists and turns, Italy's Supreme Court ordered a fresh retrial of the appeal and she was re-convicted last month.
    She's been warned she faces extradition to Italy if she leaves America.

    One gets the distinct impression that if video turned up of the murders showing Amanda herself wielding the knife, some folk would just tsk tsk and go 'Poor Amanda. She must have had her reasons..'. Or they would suddenly turn into hard core conspiracy theorists poring over every frame, claiming it was a fake.

    I don't see that, I think a lot of people would be relieved to have the truth for certain.

    I'd say she's trying to win over middle America, but not with that boyfriend.

    She's a weird little bird so who knows.

    This is true. I guess you will always have that element on both sides. I would like to think the majority of people are rational and would just like some solid evidence either way. You know, her new look is reminding me of a fugitive Bonnie (as in Bonnie and Clyde).

    Well yeah, exactly. Given all the other evidence, including the evidence that she's a sick and twisted twist ['My people killed your people'--as she points and laughs hysterically at her Jewish coworker] I would assume, and probably rightly so, that she's taking the video.
    Makes more hypothetical sense than hypothetically watching her do it and denying it or making excuses for it.

    People forget that she already had a criminal record and has done separate jail time for giving false testimony against Lumumba.

    This is a quote from the Sunday Times 02.02.14 (print version because you have to pay for online access):

    The (Knox) family are masters at getting people to "listen." They have been using the services of David Marriott, of the Seattle PR firm Gogerty Stark Marriott. He ensures that Knox gives interviews to largely sympathetic "soft news" television networks straight from his "playbook."

    "David advised her to personalise it, talk about "I" all the time even if that makes her seem narcissistic ... express sympathy for the victim, avoid forensic detail that might trip her up and punch home the message that she is the victim of foreign justice," said a PR specialist who has worked with Marriott.

    And by record, she had been given a ticket for a loud wild party at university. That's a hardcore criminal.
