Idaho Innocence Project concludes Amanda Knox not guilty of murder (video) – National Crime |

Boise, Idaho – The Idaho Innocence Project, which began examining the Amanda Knox case last month, said Monday the American student is innocent of the 2007 Italian murder of British student Meredith Kercher.

“The DNA evidence shows she wasn’t involved at all in a crime. Neither Knox nor her boyfriend was involved in this crime; that’s my view,” the director of the project Dr. Greg Hampikian told Fox 12.

Knox was convicted in Dec. 2009 of murdering Meredith, 21, with whom she shared a cottage in Perugia. She was sentenced to 26 years behind bars in an Italian prison.

Also found guilty of participating in the murder was Knox’s ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, who was sentenced to 25 years in prison, and drifter Rudy Guede who had his initial 30-year sentence reduced to 16 during an appeal.

“There are more than 100 samples that were processed from the room where the young woman was murdered,” said Hampikian.

The Idaho Innocence Project at Boise State University conducted independent tests on the DNA evidence and determined it does not belong to either Amanda or Sollecito.

He said, “They collected the DNA; they collected it quite well and I mean they collected a lot. They processed it all, on the victim’s body, in her body, on her pocketbook, feces unflushed in a toilet, one guy, who was never in that apartment before, who is the in the criminal data base, and it’s Rudy Guede.”
