Do You Suspect or Believe Accused Murderess 'Amanda Knox'?

A new Netflix documentary following the highly controversial acquittal of Knox in the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher.

Fans of the immensely successful Netflix series Making a Murderer are sure to enjoy the streaming channel’s forthcoming true crime documentary, Amanda Knox. The project follows the controversial story of Amanda Knox, who was first accused (after implicating both herself and her employer) of the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher in Italy, and then later acquitted of all charges. After spending a night with her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, the then 20-year-old Knox supposedly returned home to her apartment to find a deceased Kercher, who happened to be one of her flatmates. Although the conduct of the interrogation carried out on Knox has been put under question, she was ultimately labeled as the key suspect in the trial.

Since her incarceration and exoneration (in 2015), Knox’s story has been the subject of much dispute. Many continue to see her as a victim of gross injustice, while others are convinced that she has gotten away with murder. The investigation itself was under heavy criticism, with many experts stating that the Italian polizei greatly mishandled the evidence. In addition, her supporters persist in the belief that Knox was the target of a witch hunt — maintaining that the majority of the case brought against her was an inaccurate and prejudiced attack on her character, labelling her as a harlot and manipulator.

To drive home the dichotomy in the case, Knox’s closing quote in the “Suspect Her” version of the trailer is this: “That’s everyone’s nightmare — either I’m a psychopath in sheep’s clothing…or I am you.”

Amanda Knox will premiere on Netflix September 30. You can watch the alternative “Believe Her” trailer below.
