In this presentation, we try to follow the sort of analysis that Dr. Lorenzo Rinaldi would have used to compare the Luminol and visible footprints in the cottage, identifying common characteristics which may be shared with the Raffaele's and Amanda's footprint samples taken in custody. Each common attribute is challenged to ensure that it isn't merely a generic foot characteristic common to all persons. We see that while foot characteristics are not as definitive as fingerprinting, they are quite singular.

Murder in PerugiaMurder in Perugia
 
 In some of the recent court sessions, the prosecution in the Meredith Kercher murder trial in Perugia dealtwith barefoot footprints pressed in blood, several of which were identified on the cottage floor tiles only after the application of Luminol, a chemical substance which reacts with the iron in even slight, non-visiblebloodstains, making them visible under fluorescent light. Another footprint was a very visible barefootbloodstain on the bathroom mat in the small bathroom shared by Amanda Knox and Meredith.Months ago, in theUpdated “These Boots Were Made for Walking”presentation, we analysed thesefootprints. We were able to conclude that whoever caused the barefoot footprints, some were compatible inlength with Knox's and Raffaele Sollecito's feet (we didn't study characteristics other than length), and nonewere compatible in length with Rudy Guede's giant basketball player's feet (Rudy left his own, Nike shoeprints).The objective of this new presentation is to revisit the footprints in question, and update our analysis of themin light of Dr. Lorenzo Rinaldi's forensic testimony in the courtroom last May 9.For other presentations on this case, timelines, multi-opinioned debate, transcripts, images, and articles andmuch more content, I highly recommend the following two sites which have resulted from Steve Huff’s TrueCrime Weblog on this tragedy:Perugia Murder FileTrue Justice For Meredith Kercher (While you’re at it, visit Steve’s current blog, published by Village Voice Media:http://www.truecrimereport.com/)Also take a moment to check out the excellent analysis on this case onMissRepresented’s blog. Any irony or sarcasm which may be encountered in the presentation or our discussions is not meant by anymeans to trivialise the pain and suffering, and brutal senseless murder that Meredith experienced, nor toreduce her memory.As we go through the scenarios of what may have happened in the crime, the only moment which is trulyimportant is the day when all the evidence is presented in court, like in any other serious crime case.I can only hope that there will be one single ending, that justice is served to those responsible for each of thecrimes which have been determined by the Italian judiciary. I am buoyed by the fact that the victim’s familyhas continued to express confidence in the Italian justice system.
 
 Let’s take two pairs of barefoot footprints from theUpdated “These Boots Were Made for Walking” presentation. We measured one pair as being compatible in length with Raffaele’s feet ….… and the other pair of barefoot footprints are compatible in length with Amanda’s feet ….
