Meredith Kercher Murder Case -

They were having a beautiful love story when it
was inconveniently disrupted by a depraved homicide . . .

The Magic, The Mystery & The Phone Calls . . .

Edda Mellas testified in the Perugia courtroom today. Jon Meyersohn contributes a well written piece with some context and an overview of the case.

# According to Amanda's mother, Knox and Kercher got along great. And Mellas described the three phone calls she received from her daughter on that November 2nd when Meredith's body was found. [Owen] [Pisa]

# In her first phone call, Marta Falconi reports, Knox told her mother she thought an intruder was in the house!

# Nick Pisa on the first phone call -

Edda Mellas: ''The first call she said that she had spent the night at Raffaele's house and then gone home to take a shower. She had found the door open.

She said that she and Raffele had gone back to the house and were pounding on Meredith's bedroom door. They had tried to break in and I told her to call the police.''

# Nina Burleigh does a brief wrap:

"Still, Knox's words may yet work against her... When asked if she ever thought about the victim, Knox was less than sympathetic."

+ I'm still not clear exactly what
Edda testified about that first phone call.

That whole episode just doesn't jell right for me: front door open, blood-smeared bathroom, thought there was an intruder in the house, takes a shower.

Sorry, but it just doesn't work for me.
