And there is.
Who’s this girl in the picture? Her name is Kelsey Kay and she hails from Coeur D’ Alene in Idaho. She and Sollecito were an item for some time after his alleged attempt, last March, to marry Knox. When they met in Seattle, this was seemingly on the table from his counsel.
She [Knox] was in a difficult position because whilst his counsel saw the advantage of him having a green card in the US, in some misguided attempt to avoid extradition, she had already taken up with a classical musician. She couldn’t afford to offend him and so pointed out her current status and wanted the tie cut with Sollecito as nicely as possible.
Kay reports that he told her Knox was “a selfish, mean, cruel girl,” and an “evil bitch.” No doubt Amanda would have spoken in her standard “she fucking bled to death, didn’t she” bedside manner.
Now Kay and Sollecito have fallen out and she has accused him publicly, via Twitter, of only ever wanting her “for the visa”. Well, Kelsey, it took you this long? Poor kid. This has been syndicated around the world and whatever you think of Kay as a grandstander, she’s spilling the beans on Sollecito.
Sollecito counsel say they will sue her for extortion.
The reason Knox cannot afford to offend Sollecito is that to this day on the record, it shows him maintaining she was not with him for those critical four hours the evening of the murder, directly contradicting her defence that she was. She wrote him soft letters with a view to him altering that stance but when he didn’t, she had no further use for him.
He, on the other hand, needed her to maintain his alibi in other ways, e.g. the phone calls to the police which they lied about. A few times both have claimed they are, out of the goodness of their own hearts, protecting the other, even though both counsels are operating independently for their own clients.
He tried the Dominican Republic for a while. He tried to get into Switzerland. He’s now back in Italy but has plans to depart before Thursday. Knox, meanwhile, sits tight in Seattle, ready to go on the run [her own words], with the aiding and abetting of members of the Friends of Amanda group. That of course, is a felony.
Current wisdom holds that, if convicted and I make no comment on if they will, if they won’t, but if they are, then she would be under arrest in the US and might serve her time there, whilst Sollecito would be under immediate arrest in Italy.
If his attitude is as Kelsey said, then he might well start spilling some beans of his own which would protect him but at the same time diss Knox. The likelihood of this would be, IMHO, higher were Knox not incarcerated and he was.
Meanwhile, a reporter blogged on before is pumping the lies out in the media, despite having been corrected many times by fellow journos and campaigners alike. This is one Colleen Barry who continues to push already court-rejected lines in the hope that the American public will maintain their ignorance over the case. She runs a very real risk, should the pair be convicted, of action for false reporting.
And of course, those who have been gunning for Knox and Sollecito from the beginning ask the question: “Are these the actions of innocent people?”
