    The Amanda Knox appeal verdict is due on Monday, and there’s one man who thinks she’s very guilty. Patrick Lumumba, whom Knox initially accused of the crime, called her “the world’s best actress” in an interview with Britain’s Sunday Times. (The article is behind a paywall.) Lumumba hired Knox to work as a waitress weeks before the murder of Meredith Kercher, and tells the paper that he is living proof of her guilt. Italian police arrested Lumumba after Knox said that she was in the kitchen while Lumumba, the owner of the bar Le Chic, killed Kercher in the bedroom.

Amanda. I'm the proof that she is involved in the murder."
