First Memorandum Description of Abusive Interrogation

Amanda Knox started her First Memorandum expressing confusion.

She said the police told her they had hard evidence that she was at the villa when Meredith was killed. The police lied.

She was confused being told that Raffaele Sollecito denied she was with him the night of the murder. Raffaele had not said this to the police during his interrogation. Raffaele recanted his statement when he learned of the lies the police put in it.

She stated in her First Memorandum that she was "very doubtful of the verity of my statements because they
were made under the pressures of stress, shock and extreme exhaustion."

She claimed she was hit in the head when she didn't respond the way the police wanter her to.

The police threatened to arrest her and put her in jail for 30 years if she continued to remember incorrectly.

She again stated that it was due to pressure and confusion that images they encouraged came to her mind. But she said those things were unreal to her and like a dream.

She expressed confusion at the contrasting ideas of being at the murder with Patrick, but with Raffaele at his apartment during the same period of time. How could this be unless the police forced her to believe the part about being at the murder with Patrick?

She emphasized that her statements that night were what could have happened, but that being at the murder with Patrick was unreal compared to being with Raffaele at his apartment.

She asked the police not to yell at her because it only confused her.
