Did cocaine use cause Amanda Knox to murder Meredith Kercher?

New information has surfaced which proves that Amanda Knox was probably high on cocaine the night that Meredith Kercher was stabbed to death. Today its being reported that,"Prosecutors are set to detail Amanda Knox’s disturbing links to local cocaine dealers as part of their bid to extradite ]her]. . . to Italy to face justice."

It has long been known that a cocaine dealer’s phone number was found on Knox’s cell phone shortly after the murder. Now sources reveal that Knox called this cocaine dealer numerous times in the days leading up to the murder and the days following Meredith’s demise.

“On January 14, 2011, Terni magazine reported that a local man had been sentenced to two years and eight months for dealing cocaine, and that ‘The police found the pusher after discovering his number in the list [of numbers] Amanda stored on her phone. Calls between the two devices occurred in the days before and after the murder of [Kercher]…’”

Knox’s co-defendant and ex-partner, Raffaele Sollecito has always claimed that he and Knox did nothing but smoke a little marijuana or hashish. However, this newly released information proves otherwise.

A source close to Knox also provided detailed bank statement information. The statements show that Knox withdrew excessive amounts of cash from ATMs in the two months prior to her roommate’s death on November 1, 2007. In the month of September 2007, Amanda withdrew $2,452.60 and in October she took out $1,637.25 in cash. Amanda’s rent was only $400 per month. The amount she withdrew far exceeds the cost of living expenses; instead they provide proof, along with cell phone records, of a potentially expensive drug habit.

“According to the magazine’s report, as well as a subsequent article in local newspaper il Giornale dell’Umbria, a police report attached to the defendant’s file that stated that ‘in the course of the investigation regarding the criminal proceedings 9066/07 [Kercher's murder] they discovered that an Italian person … From time to time replenished Amanda Knox’s narcotic substances, as well as having allegedly had with her the relationship of a sexual nature.’”

Not only did Knox ostensibly spend thousands of dollars on cocaine but she also apparently used sex to pay for her habit. This leads to speculation about how Raffaele who, by all reports, was besotted by the Seattle blonde, would react to finding out that his new girlfriend was fooling around with a drug dealer.

Could cocaine cause someone with no criminal record to become homicidal? According to psychiatrists, the answer is a resounding “yes.” “Cocaine is an addictive drug that produces numerous psychiatric symptoms, syndromes, and disorders. The symptoms include agitation, paranoia, hallucinations, delusions, violence, as well as suicidal and homicidal thinking. “

This new information regarding Amanda Knox’s cocaine use is the second blow to Amanda Knox. Her ex-partner Raffaele Sollecito gave a press conference on July 1, 2014 where he took away Amanda Knox’s alibi. Raffaele now stands by the assertion that Amanda Knox went out without him the night of the murder, while he stayed home, alone. Where did Amanda go that evening? Was she meeting her cocaine dealer? Did Meredith walk in on her and her dealer having sex? Did Meredith threaten to tell Raffaele? Did this provoke Knox in a cocaine rage to attack and kill Meredith? This and many more questions still linger about what really happened the night Meredith Kercher’s screams and death shook Perugia.
