Amanda Knox: Italian Prosecutors Confirm ‘Foxy Knoxy’ Had Ties To Cocaine Ring

Amanda Knox speaks to ABC News in the wake of her second murder conviction.

Prosecutors in Italy are revealing new evidence in the Amanda Knox murder case that could jeopardize the American student’s upcoming appeal.

According to RadarOnline, prosecutors have now successfully tied Amanda to a ring of cocaine dealers in Perugia, Italy.

While investigating Amanda’s alleged role in Meredith Kercher’s 2007 murder, prosecutors said they found drug dealers’ numbers saved on Amanda’s cellphone.

Now following up on reports in the Italian newspaper Giallo, RaderOnline quotes a prosecutors’ report from January 2008:

“During the course of the investigation into the Meredith Kercher, we have confirmed that a person whose initial is ‘F’ would occasionally supply drugs to Amanda Knox, as well as having a relationship with her supposedly of a sexual nature”.

The identity of “F” has never been released, but Giallo said he met Knox during a train ride from Milan to Florence.

Along with “F”, two other drug dealing associates, “Luciano” and “Lorenzo”, were also found in Amanda’s phone.

According to the Daily Mail, prosecutors intend to use these drug allegations to extradite Amanda back to Italy. In January, Amanda told ABC News that said she would “never go back willingly” to face Italian justice.

Earlier this year, the 27-year-old was re-convicted, after being tried in absentia on the murder charges. She is preparing an appeal, to be heard later this year, or in early 2015.

The Seattle native has already served four years in connection to the case. Following a widely-criticized trial in 2009, Amanda was sentenced to 28 years in jail. An appeal in 2011 secured Amanda’s release and allowed her to return home to the United States.

Since Amanda was implicated in the case back in 2008, her ex-boyfriend Rafaelle Sollecito has been her co-defendent. He too was initially convicted of Kercher’s murder, was released on appeal, then re-convicted. Through the process, Sollecito and Amanda have always proclaimed each others’ innocence.

However, now Sollecito is distancing himself from Amanda as they prepare for their appeals. As the Inquisitr reported earlier this month, Sollecito is now changing his version of events the night that Kercher died. Sollecito told a press conference in Rome that he is “not sure” he was with Amanda on October 31, 2007.

Without a solid alibi, it is unclear how Amanda will account for whereabouts that night. She has long claimed that she and Sollecito spent the whole time watching TV and having sex.

Italian legal documents shared with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation said Meredith Kercher died of multiple stab wounds, possibly from multiple assailants. The 21-year-old British student was found bloodied on the floor of the cottage she shared with Amanda.

    this prosecutor will stop at nothing to get the verdict he wants,this is a total miss carrage of any justice anywhere in this world.this prosecutor has been indited himself for evidence tampering,so why should any one believe him now.the whole Italian economy runs on falsehoods, and bribery.when is this farce going to stop and leave this girl alone don t the wops get fed up with there antiquated justice system.also when are the people who want to move there going to wake up to the fact this kind of stuff could happen to them.its time we closed our air bases in Italy and let them struggle.we will never let this girl go back there,so Italy stick it.wonder what they would do if the shoe was on the other foot.

    LOL! I mean, seriously. Just look like the Italian Prosecutor will make stuff up to get his conviction. It's been 5 years and they're just now finding out Knox has "drug dealers on her phone". After all the prior investigation this is new? Sorry, hard to believe. I see planted evidence…

    This is antique news, they had already looked into AK s cellphone in 2007.

    Prosecutors have never brought up the drug issue ever since because AK and RS were not tested for drugs right after the murder.

    Strangely, the defenses brought up the drug – not cocaine- problem during the trial by way of explaining AK and RS memory lapses.

    LOL-Amanda, it's about time for you to sue many Italians. Italy is making a fool if itself. This Prosecutor is quite literally a joke. That indited prosecutor needs to be behind bars.

    "In January, Amanda told ABC News that said she would never go back willingly to face Italian justice."

    Why is this not surprising? Amanda Knox has NEVER taken any accountability in the death of Meredith Kercher nor allowed the Kercher family closure for taking the life of their family member. This little girl thinks she is clever and can get away with murder and leave everyone else to be her scapegoat. I, for one, will be glad when I see her boarding a plane straight back to Italy to answer for GOOD for her heinous crime she committed. She needs to spend her life behind bars for what she did …. not running with her tail between her legs wanting everyone else to eat it.

    She's a classic con artist just like Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer. It looks like they breed these types in Washington state.

    If the United States government ever extradites Ms. Knox, it will be one serious miscarriage of justice. This case has had holes in it from day one, and would never stand up in a U.S. court.

    OMG.. she met someone on a train and got his phone number. This is a girl who grew up in Seattle playing soccer and working 2 jobs to earn the money to go to school abroad. What a bunch of loons these Italians are.

    This prosecutor needs to give it up! Now all of a sudden after five years, Knox is supposedly said to be connected with cocaine dealers. Why is this info leaking out to the public now? Sounds to me that they know they never had enough evidence in the first place to convict her or Sollecitto and now they are grasping for straws. Not saying that she didn't do it, it's just obvious that they don't have enough evidence to convict. In addition, what about the guy Rudy Guede? Its seems as if he's guilty. So, why aren't they tying the drug dealers to him as well. Give it up already!!

    OMG this girl is guilty as hell. One dead girl, drugs and non stop kinky sex. Amanda is a drug induced Hoe and she needs to be in prison for the remainder of her life. Maybe this is another thing conservatives will just blame on Obama.

    I totally agree with ekayr…I wonder if she could sue…

    Next they will accuse her of molesting the pope, this is pathetic. This case proves once and for all that Americans should spend their vacation and college money here at home and never set foot in these European hellholes. You couldn't pay me to go to Italy again and I used to love to go to Rome. But that was in the 1970s and 1980s when the world was a very different place.

  13. Terry Holmes

    Charlie Miller Why because Americans only convict when it's been proven beyond a reasonable doubt? I guess you like a legal system that can railroad the defendant instead.

  14. Lillian Porter

    I don't believe anything the Italian govt, says. They have put this poor, innocent girl through hell and back.Like someone else said, "why didn't they mention this earlier," It doesn't change anything in the case anyway, they are trying to convict someone solely on ruining their reputation.

    This B. itch is guilty as hell. Go on Wikipedia and read the whole story. This woman is a habitual liar with a temper and her alibi is a total joke. These cocaine revelations are merely to add to the fact that she is, in no way, some angel.

    As a citizen of the US, I would like to say, the US legal system and the people in it are nowhere near as pure as we like to think. The people within the system protect each other, even when it's their job to do the opposite. Again and again, if you read about DNA exonerations you will see a case where some poor innocent guy was locked up for 20 years and judge and prosecutor both did wrong along the way. And the norm is for a new prosecutor to protect the misconduct of an old prosecutor, even when he was not part of it. So, we have the same problems Italy has ==but the laws in the US are MUCH better — the independent DNA testing would be an unquestioned right of the defense, testing the stain which is likely Guede's semen would have happened, the finding Guede did not act alone, in HIS trial would not be applied to Knox' trial, the cops act independently of the prosecutor, the judges do not blatantly make stuff up as Nencini has by claiming he knows Know stabbed Kercher, who was holding her, etc
    Overall, Italy has a terrible system. And worse people within that system.
    All of the so-called evidence against Knox, except the new stuff they are just plain lying about, is covered in the Hellman motivation report.
