Rolling Stone writes about "Neverending Nightmare of Amanda Knox"on June 28, 2011 @ 7:31 am (Updated: 10:05 am - 6/28/11 )
"Less than a day after her murder, Meredith Kercher was all but forgotten. The show was stolen by an accidental ingenue named Amanda Knox," says Rolling Stone, in "The Neverending Nightmare of Amanda Knox."
Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted for the Nov. 1, 2007, slaying of Kercher, whose body was found in a pool of blood in the apartment she and Knox shared in Perugia.
"When an attractive young woman from a privileged British family is murdered in Italy, you've got a popular crime story. When the person suspected of killing her is an attractive young woman from a privileged American family, you have tabloid gold," says the Rolling Stone piece.
The article describes Knox as previously dorky high school student at Seattle Prep who didn't discover her looks until she received hundreds of letters from admirers while in prison.
Knox is currently serving a 26-year sentence for the murder of Kercher.
The article includes interviews with Knox's family and friends that offer insight into some of the experiences the University of Washington student had prior to and since her arrest.
The appeals trial of Knox and Sollecito is currently underway in Perugia, Italy.
On Monday, the first man convicted in the murder of Knox's roommate testified that he believes Knox and Sollecito are guilty, not him.
Knox said she was "shocked and anguished" by the testimony Monday from Rudy Guede.
The Rolling Stone story is currently available on newsstands and online.
