Let's revisit our analysis of the bathmat footprint, in light of the availability of some of the graphic material used by Dr. Lorenzo Rinaldi in his testimony last May 9. In the presentation, we get to the "spooky" slide, where we see that the bathmat footprint - in spite of its possible appearance at first glance - has neither a long nor crooked big toe, but rather is quite compatible with the footprints taken of Raffaele in custody.

Murder in PerugiaMurder in Perugia
 
 In some of the recent court sessions, the prosecution in the Meredith Kercher murder trial in Perugia dealt withbarefoot footprints pressed in blood, several of which were identified on the cottage floor tiles only after theapplication of Luminol, a chemical substance which reacts with the iron in even slight, non-visible bloodstains,making them momentarily visible for inspection and measurement by investigators. Another footprint was a veryvisible barefoot bloodstain 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 these footprints.We were able to conclude that whoever caused the barefoot footprints, some were compatible in length withKnox's and Raffaele Sollecito's feet (we didn't study characteristics other than length), and none were compatiblein length with Rudy Guede's giant basketball player's feet (Rudy left his own, Nike shoe prints).A few days ago I was looking at the prints, and thought that the footprints which were compatible with Sollecito’ssize 42 feet showed a crooked, elongated big toe. However, a closer examination of the prints has shown thatwhat seems to be apparent is often not the case - like a broken window seeming to indicate a robbery. Theobjective of this new presentation is to revisit some of 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, timelines, debate, transcripts, images, and articles and much more content, Irecommend the following two sites which have resulted from Steve Huff’s True Crime Weblog on this tragedy:PerugiaMurder File-True 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 to reduceher 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 family hascontinued to express confidence in the Italian justice system.- Kermit (7 June 2009)

In my prior comparison of a luminol print from the cottage and the bathmat footprint, I identified characteristics in common between them. However, while those observations arereal, perhaps they aren’t the most important considerations as we compare the different footprints, nor are they complete observations.How my observations could have beenmore precise:1. Not saturate the colours in thebathmat photoI felt this would make it easier todelineate the footprint; in fact, thestrongest colour visually “swamped” theother colours: the lightest areas of thefootprint were “washed into” the bathmat.
