Présentation de l'éditeur

DESCRIPTION: "Amidst all the sound and fury surrounding the Italian murder trial of American student Amanda Knox, two people have been largely forgotten. One is the victim, Meredith Kercher, who was by all accounts a lovely, intelligent young woman full of great promise. Her murder was a terrible tragedy. The other is Rudy Guede—the actual murderer. This book shows that the evidence against Guede was overwhelming from the beginning. That he committed the crime alone, without help, is also beyond question. Guede was convicted in a fast-track trial and sentenced to 16 years in prison. But with time off for good behavior, he may be able to gain daytime release privileges as early as this year. Meanwhile, the endless judicial persecution of Amanda and her Italian friend and co-defendant, Raffaele Sollecito, continues unabated. Many people I speak to are still uncertain what to believe. They wonder if, perhaps, Amanda and Raffaele might have had something to do with the murder. Some people find it hard to accept that two completely innocent people could linger for so long under a cloud of suspicion, or that the criminal-justice system of a civilized European country could manufacture guilt out of thin air. Others have been influenced by the online industrial complex of Amanda-haters and conspiracy mongers, who have spread their falsehoods everywhere on the web. Many have made up their minds, but there are others who genuinely want to know the truth. "The Forgotten Killer", prepared by some of the country’s leading experts in criminology, forensic science, crime scene analysis, and legal procedure, at long last presents the truth..." - Douglas Preston in Chapter One of "The Forgotten Killer: Rudy Guede and the Murder of Meredith Kercher".

AUTHORS: DOUGLAS PRESTON is a journalist and author who has published 25 books, nonfiction and fiction, several of which have been #1 New York Times bestsellers. JOHN DOUGLAS, who served as special agent for the FBI for twenty-five years, is the Bureau’s pioneer of behavioral profiling and modern criminal investigative analysis.

HASH(0x912c8a20) étoiles sur 5 Clear and convincing 30 janvier 2014
Par David H. Peterzell PhD PhD - Publié sur

I wonder if it would do any good to send an Italian translation of this to the court that is currently deciding the Knox-Sollecito trial in Florence. Do the facts even matter to them? It seems so obvious. Rudy Guede committed the murder during a botched robbery, after which he fled the country

This book provides a concise and internally consistent account of what almost certainly happened, starting with the data at the crime scene. The authors detail the overwhelming -and straightforward- evidence to suggest that Guede was the murderer and acted alone. Along the way, the authors detail the inept or corrupt (more often corrupt, I see) behaviors -and apparent motives- of police, DNA "experts," prosecutors, and the courts (and the media and internet fanatics). At only 81 pages (it costs almost nothing), it is concise, clear and convincing. The authors other opinions, commentary and updates can be found at the Injustice in Perugia website.

I found the second, third and fourth chapters especially compelling, as they were written by forensic and legal experts assessing 1) data obtained from the crime scene itself (Douglas and Olshaker), 2) known aspects of the investigation (Moore), and 3) court findings (Heavey and Lovering). I strongly recommend these three chapters to anyone interested in reviewing actual data from the crime, the investigation, and trials that followed. I wonder if this book has the power to change minds of those who think Knox and Sollecito are guilty. I would hope so - the case as presented by prosecutors and police seems to be completely discredited.

The authors of these three chapters often times paint a compelling picture of the motives and missteps of Guede, the prosecutors, and the courts. Each analysis incorporates keen observations and analysis by experts who often point out the neglected but obvious. Among other things, the chapter on the crime scene includes sensible attempts at profiling the criminal, while also discussing evidence to suggest a single offender. The chapter on the investigation is perhaps the most chilling. Moore begins by documenting "target fixation" upon Knox and Sollecito, but then documents evidence to suggest that the prosecutors and others were in fact lying, suppressing evidence, and fabricating data to convict the two. Moreover, Moore explains the absurd conditions under which Knox's "confession" (actually NOT a confession) was extracted. The chapter on the courts details the strange maneuvering of the judge in the first trial, as well as the evidence-based no-nonsense approach taken by the appeals judge. But a chilling aspect of the third trial is that it seems motivated by, and perhaps supports, a trial based on insinuation as opposed to fact-based descriptions. A guilty verdict could restore pride in a system that was determined to be completely wrong in the second trial. The authors note that in an omenous move, the Nencini court denied all defense requests in a preliminary hearing while agreeing to those of the prosecution.

There's much more here than what I've described. By better understanding the murderer (Guede), the evidence and its implications, and what motivated the travesty that followed, one is in a better position to understand what happened... and why Guede is clearly guilty... and why Knox and Sollecito are clearly innocent.

UPDATE January 31, 2014. The most recent verdict may have been predictable. But to anybody who has followed the case honestly, and examined the evidence, it is clear that Sollecito and Knox are innocent. My solution? I make occasional donations to the Sollecito and Knox defense funds, which can be found at the Injustice in Perugia website.

This book is an awesome collection of case analysis from pros in murder investigation and forensics, law, and journalism. There are many good books on the Kercher case now but I rank this number one for describing the actual crime clearly and concisely.

The chapter by FBI pioneer of criminal profiling John Douglas is presented as if it were a consultation on an unsolved case from the FBI to a local police department. This gives excellent insight into how skilled professionals integrate different forms of evidence together to draw logical conclusions. The profiles given on the Criminal Minds TV show are a little bit reality and a whole lot of dramatization. This is the REAL deal.

The chapter by FBI murder investigator Steve Moore reveals what goes through a seasoned investigator's mind as he processes the crime scene and follows the evidence towards a conclusion. There is a constant danger of reversing the process as the Italian police did in this case: fixating too soon on a conclusion and pretzeling the evidence to try and fit it.

I was touched by Moore's own recollections about the heavy responsibility of handling informants as he talked about Guede.
"Each time I had them released after a petty offense, I knew that I "owned" whatever they did while they should have been serving a month in jail." You can feel his fear.

The chapter by Doug Preston describes his terrifying encounter with Prosecutor Mignini where he was brought in for interrogation and accused of heinous crimes because he disagreed with Mignini's crime theory on The Monster of Florence case. Preston was a worldly author/journalist in fear he would never leave for home with his family again. It makes one shiver at the thought of naive twenty year old Amanda Knox in an unrecorded middle of the night interrogation at the Perugia police station.

The chapter by Judge Heavey gave an excellent overview about how the case against Knox and Sollecito veered out of control right from the start and how judges covered up everybody's mistakes instead of owning up to them. This chapter left me hungry for more though. I was hoping for more detail about all the sabotaging false evidence leaks that came before important early hearings for Amanda and Raffaele. Maybe this chapter could be expanded.

I understand though this book is meant to be concise. It is essential for understanding the huge difference between the crime itself and the catastrophic railroad case against Knox and Sollecito, which does nothing but dishonor the memory of Meredith Kercher.

This nonfiction book is a page-turner. The combination of science, experts and insights is straight forward and shocking! The book read's like a detective novel and gives a crystal clear picture of Amanda's innocence and what really happened to Meredith Kercher.

HASH(0x912fc678) étoiles sur 5 It makes you feel sick that such an injustice can be allowed to take place 30 janvier 2014

This is one of the best written and definitely credible book that I have read about the subject. I wish it had come out earlier as I think it would have had a much better impact at the beginning of this latest witch hunt. The authors focus on the evidence(or lack of it) instead of the usual biased and nasty character assassinations and pure gossip. The Kercher say they need answers (fair enough when you have been surrounded by people that have lied and manipulated constantly), well here is their chance!! There is no better book.

Well done!!

HASH(0x912fc090) étoiles sur 5 Focuses less on Guede than the title promises, but it's still worth a read. 9 novembre 2014
Par Nathan - Publié sur

I was expecting the book to be devoted to the subject of Rudy Guede, but it's not. Only the book's introduction focuses exclusively on Guede, but that entire chapter repeats information that has already been covered elsewhere. I didn't learn anything new from reading that chapter.

After the introduction, there is a chapter written by the author of The Monster of Florence, who relates his own horrible treatment at the hands of Giuliano Mignini, the same corrupt prosecutor who fingered Lumumba, Knox, Sollecito, and Guede for Kercher's murder (well, at least he's right 25% of the time).

Then there is a piece-by-piece critical examination of the evidence in the case, written by a former FBI profiler. I found this to be the most valuable chapter in the book, worth the price for this chapter alone.

One thing that came to mind when I read this chapter: if Knox, Sollecito, and Guede had jointly committed the murder and then conspired a cover-up to throw a rock in the window and make the scene look like a botched burglary, then why didn't they flush the toilet to hide Guede's feces? Why would they go to great lengths to cover up a crime, yet leave blatant evidence out in broad daylight?

That same chapter also discusses the fact that Mignini gave a press conference when Knox and Sollecito were arrested, in which he claimed that the crime scene had been cleaned by the perpetrators. Well, if that were the case, again, why didn't they flush the toilet? It boggles the mind that the authorities arrested three people before even doing DNA testing, including testing of the feces. Amazingly, the investigators announced to the public that they had determined Amanda Knox was guilty before they even looked at the evidence. Wow. I can believe this happened, but the unbelievable part is they destroyed their own case by admitting it.

There is also a chapter by another former FBI employee who critiques the investigation, and a chapter by a judge who analyzes the various judicial stages of the case. In the latter chapter, I learned that one of the Italian Supreme Court justices who ruled that Knox and Sollecito had to be re-tried is also a conspiracy theorist who believes the CIA were behind the 9/11 attacks. If he believes in conspiracies like that, it's not hard to imagine him being willing to overlook the overwhelming evidence against Guede as the killer, and find any credibility in the prosecutors' outlandish conspiracy theories.

The book also contains Amanda Knox's court declaration made in November 2013 in absentia in her most recent trial. (How many times have Knox and Sollecito been tried? I've lost count.)

Even though I didn't learn anything new about Guede that I didn't already know, I would still recommend this book, for those who are already familiar with the case as well as relative newcomers.

If you'd like to see what Rudy Guede was actually like, I have uploaded a mirror of a video that he himself uploaded to YouTube in February 2007, less than nine months before he killed Kercher. Just go to YouTube and search "Rudy Guede" in quotes. The video title is "Rudy Guede - The Murderer of Meredith Kercher."

EDIT: I just remembered one more point. One of the former FBI agents speculates about the theory that Rudy Guede might have been a police informant, because of the way the police consistently failed to prosecute him when he committed crimes before murdering Kercher. It's an interesting theory, but I doubt it holds any water. Wouldn't the defense attorneys be able to ascertain through discovery whether that was the case? In America, an accused would be able to learn if their alleged co-conspirator were a police informant. What about in Italy?
