And it don’t stop

Perugia, May 27 - The defenders of Lumumba Diya, known as Patrick, will now “defend him as offended party, presumably denouncing Amanda Knox for slander. After 7 months the musician from Zaire is no longer suspected of the murder of the British Meredith Kercher in Perugia last November, as established by investigating judge Claudia Matteini signing the closure of file. Lawyers Carlo Pacelli and Giuseppe Sereni are pleased with this fact and announced they will ask for compensation for unjust detention. Lumumba Diya was arrested in November, five days after the murder, together with Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox. The American student had indicated the musician and manager of the pub ‘Le Chic’ in the centre of Perugia as possible murderer. Lumumba kept claiming to be innocent giving the investigators an alibi (he said he was in his pub the whole night, and brought witnesses of this, some coming from outside Umbria), but stayed in the prison of Capanne for two weeks until November 20 (the day Rudy Guede was arrested in Germany), after which he was released for lack of evidence.

Enter the scandihooligan:

A new suspect has emerged in the murder case of Meredith Kercher, the British student murdered in a frenzied attack in Perugia last November.

Witnesses have said that a man was seen near the scene of the crime covered in blood and screaming: I killed her, I killed her.

He is described as blond with blue eyes, aged about 30, and wearing a fleece decorated with the Norwegian flag and a white woollen hat. Paramedics who found him wandering around, dazed, say that his hands, clothes and shoes were all bloody.

The emergence of another suspect raises further questions about the police investigation.

The murder of Meredith Kercher is a hole that only knows how to be a hole. It knows no end.

Fleece? Disgusting.

His fleece was decorated with a white woolen hat? Someone's copyeditor is asleep at the wheel.

Lemme get this straight... the paramedics pick up some guy on the street, covered in blood, screaming "I killed her, I killed her" and just... what? Decide to not take him to the nearest mental hospital? Confine him for a day or two and see what murders pop up in the area? Not even TAKE HIS NAME?

Wow, yeah.

Please tell me that's not really Amanda Knox there, playing the accordion.

I feel really, really bad for Meredith Kercher. This is turning into the most comical murder case of all time.

And this is just coming to light right now? No one managed to put two and two together until today? Jesus H., what an incompetent law enforcement system.

But what is perhaps more disturbing is Charles' seemingly endless supply of Amanda Knox photographs...

Yeah, you'd think a capable reporter sent on assigment to Perugia could have uncovered details like these.
