The Italian judge who presided over the appeal trial of Amanda Knox has said that the American student may have been guilty after all, reports the Guardian.Claudio Pratillo Hellmann, who read out the verdict as Knox was acquitted of murdering Meredith Kercher this week, already caused speculation over the decision when he said that “no one will ever know what happened” after the trial.
Now, speaking to Italian newspaper, Corriere della Sera, Hellmann has said that the outcome of the appeal was “a truth that was created in the proceedings,” and that “the real truth may be different.”
The judge also said that Rudy Guede, who resides in jail convicted of murdering Meredith Kercher, definitely knew what happened on the night of the crime. He speculated that Knox and former boyfriend Rafaele Sollecito also perhaps knew what had happened.
