The most fascinating piece of information in Radar’s feature on Amanda Knox, “The Accused”:
Another source close to the family says that Knox’s first sexual experience came fairly late, while she was a university student, and that she was anything but a “man-eater.” Knox wrote that list last winter, says Ciolino, the private investigator, because prison authorities told her on the evening of November 21, 2007, that she had tested positive for HIV and needed to find out who might have infected her. She made the list, says her father, on the advice of a man who identified himself as a prison doctor, because “she was scared out of her mind, and she didn’t want to die.” She was later told that her blood test had been a false positive, though sources close to the case have said that they believe this was one of Mignini’s early tactics to try to find a male sexual partner of Knox’s who could provide a link to Kercher’s murder.Giuliano Mignini, the Perugian chief prosecutor, is to Amanda Knox what Count Fosco was to Anne Catherick.
