While a relieved Amanda Knox and thousand others in the U.S are celebrating her release and return home, Nancy Grace is not having it.
The legal commentator and former prosecutor does not think justice has been served by acquitting Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito of the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy.
I was very disturbed, because I think it is a huge miscarriage of justice, Grace told Access Hollywood after Monday's Dancing With the Stars show, where she is a contestant.
Grace pretty firmly believes that Knox was a very much a part of and responsible for the girsly slaying.
I believe that while Amanda Knox did not wield the knife herself, I think that she was there, with her boyfriend, and that he did the deed, and that she egged him on. That's what I think happened, she declared.
Knox has maintained throughout that she was not even present on the crime scene and was not with Kercher on the night of her death. In her statements, she has told the court that she and Sollecito spent the night at his apartment smoking marijuana, watching a French movie and making love.
She had her bedroom next to mine. She was killed in our own apartment. If I had been there that night, I would be dead, Knox told the court Monday. I did not kill. I did not rape. I did not steal. I wasn't there.
But TV journalist Grace doesn't believe any of that. I said that it was a miscarriage of justice. I believe her original statement to the police - that she was there in the home when her roommate was murdered was true. ... What they want to do with her regarding sentencing is their business.
Grace also added, I don't wish her ill.
When asked about interviewing Knox, Grace said, I'm not trying to get Amanda Knox's first interview because... my show does not pay for interviews in any way. I think whether she gets paid outright or whether it's a licensing fee for a photograph, that's the way a lot of networks get around paying for interviews, I absolutely would not stand to be on a show where we pay for guests or interviews. Second, I don't think she's going to tell the truth anyway, so what's the point?
