The next trial date in the appeal of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito is set for May 21st. It’s an important date for them. The hearing is potentially pivotal, since the court is due to be presented with the results of review of DNA evidence in the case. How this goes could prove to be a determining factor as to whether or not the convictions of Knox and Sollecito are upheld.
But seatllepi.com reports that a billboard in the centre of Knox’s home town of Seattle is advertising a different sort of Judgement Day, which could overshadow anything that happens in court. According to some website, Knox’s date with destiny will coincide with the date of the Rapture, when Jesus will return to Earth.
We already know from a truly astounding video, posted a couple of weeks ago, that Knox is innocent of murder according to no lesser authority than the Bible. And I think it can only be taken as some sort of sign that, according to their testimony, Knox and Sollecito watched the film Amélie, starring Jesus’ only direct living descendant, Audrey Tautou, on the day that Meredith Kercher was killed. It all adds up to something or other, in my humble opinion.
One thing that can’t be ruled out is that, in the event that key witnesses or court personnel are among the chosen few and are whisked into the air to be with their saviour, some disruption to court proceedings may be occasioned. A postponement is certainly a possibility.
I’ll keep you updated.
