    So, do you think she did it?

    I don't think she did it. I think she was high on drugs and came back to the house - her boyfriend and the Nigerian bartender (who they had just met that night) murdered her. In this case, I think Amanda was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time, too stupid and naive to escape a situation for which she would be implicated as the out-of-place foreigner in small town Italy. She was probably an accomplice who lied to the police about what she saw - but murderer? Doubt it...

    I have college friends from UW (where she was originally a student) who knew her, even know a guy who dated her at one time. The general consensus is that this girl was sexually compulsive and definitely had a bit of the wild streak. From friends who knew her when she first went abroad before the murder, she was described as a rather typical study abroad student who would go out and be flirtatious with men and get as drunk as possible. Pretty much fit the Italian stereotype of how American girls act when they're on their own. She was popular at Seattle parties because she was 'that girl' who could hold her liquor and was down for anything. Hence the drugs and the Nigerian bartender coming over to your place after a night on the town. However, I've also heard that she was possessive and firecely territorial when it came to men. There's no telling what really happened that night - is it possible to black out and kill someone? I have a hard time believing this nice, middle-class girl had it in her to be a cold-blooded murderer.

    But, it's usually the quiet, unsuspecting ones who end up making the headlines. I certainly hope that she didn't do it either and that she just got caught in the middle of some weird sexual triangle. Then, like you said, she fit the 'typical' image of an American female college student, i.e. a party girl who drinks and has lots of sex. Not only that, but the Italian courts, from what I've heard, are a pain in the butt to deal with.

    One thing is for sure though: Don't do stupid things in foreign countries!

    Anything is possible, as you say, if she was high, then especially so. In University I've woken up after just drinking and not remembered the night before.

    And that's the danger. Knowing her partying and sexual habits, it is probable that she drank too much, had sex, and then, while in her intoxicated state, did something without remembering. However, I truly hope that she didn't do this and that it was all some cruel game thought up by some sick individuals.
