Not at all but it does seem strange they found his DNA everywhere but here DNA was rather limited to areas you would expect a room mates DNA to be. If his DNA was all over and in the body, why wasn't hers?

Do you think the same person who killed Ronald Goldman and Nicole Simpson is responsible? He did leave behind a bloody glove that was made in Italy

A lot of the American media coverage seemed biased in favored of her innocence. As if there should be American outrage should she be convicted by the Italian court. That has been annoying.
As I said I really haven't been following the case all that closely but what I did see tonight on TV seemed balanced. Coming to this site is another story that is why I am begining to think bias may have played a part in hte verdict.

The degree of her participation in the sex games (with her being a female) would have left less DNA on the body.

OK less is still more than none.

No one wants to believe that their children would commit such a heinous crime....but they do, everyday.
No one on this blog knows whether this couple commited this crime or not and they were found guilty by modern forensic evidence. If the Parents look deep into the case then maybe more will be discovered that will either prove them innocent or just uphold their guilt.
What evidence? The first blood test, the second or the third? What finger prints? There were none, they cleaned the place spotless... every print everywhere after a sex induced orgy. Apparently, while doing drugs and having sex, they cleaned the place spotless or wore gloves to the point that they couldn't find any fingerprints, anywhere. Door knobs, tables, bed frames, windows, bowls, bongs, crack pipes, glasses, plates, straws, dollar bills or whatever currency was there, pillows, headboards.... The blood evidence they did have was questionable at best, at least three times.

Murders, sociopaths and narcissist come in all colors and none of it is prejudice so the color of her skin or how she looked has zero to do with this case despite what many would like to condemn her for.

Unlike the O.J. trial, this time there was some justice in the verdict

Fortunately an unbiased Italian jury heard the facts presented and gave her a relatively light 26 year sentence. She deserves life with the possibility of parole in about 30 years.
And 3 appeals.

No, you just wanted ambitiously for her to be guilty because she was white, that's much better.

She lived there.... No finger prints anywhere. The prosecutions explanation is she cleaned the place. Apparently every square millimeter of it and before the crime was reported too.
