The Italians have taken it to the next level. If you want to see the scene of the crime (the murder of Meredith Kercher), which is in this little house on the Perugian hill…
…Go here. You will not only see the room and personal belongings but also Meredith Kercher’s bloody neck. Indeed, the televised images shocked Meredith’s family:
The family of Meredith Kercher, the British student murdered in Italy, expressed their horror after a graphic video of her corpse was broadcast on Italian television. The images, which were recorded by forensic police as they gathered evidence, were shown during a documentary about unsolved crimes on Telenorba 7, a local television network in the southern state of Puglia. Raffaele Sollecito, 24, one of the three suspects in the case, is from Bari in Puglia.
As for the Italian television programmers:
Anna Maria Ferretti, the director of Antenna Sud, a leading Italian television programme in the south, said: “For five minutes of television, the ultimate taboo has been broken without any shame.”
Enzo Magistà, the editor of the television programme, said: “When I decided to transmit the images of Meredith’s corpse, I did not have the least intention of violating anyone’s dignity, but merely to do my job with respect to an important event.”
