The West Seattle Herald also runs a story story today: "“Amanda and Meredith were very friendly,” said Janet Huff, Knox’s aunt. “Just two days before (the murder) they attended the Chocolate Festival together and had been out together to local pubs.

Too bad the Italian police completely fried it when trying to get into it and were not able to retrieve a single thing."
