Seattle native and freed international murder suspect Amanda Knox has announced she is not dead. What’s more, her formerly private Instagram account is now public — and it is fantastically weird.
This highly curious one-two Knox-out punch first hit on June 20, when Amanda quoted Mark Twain in a tweet. In response to a fake Internet news story claiming she had committed suicide, Amanda wrote: “Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”
Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated. https://t.co/IFWf8RIhhM

The bogus article — along with the rest of the bogus website — is not presently available online.
What is very much accessible right now, however, is Amanda Knox’s formerly private Instagram account. She announced today on Twitter that she was making it public.
What’s happening? Well, I made my Instagram public. No more hoarding all my amazing cat videos. Check them out at https://t.co/qyVKxaAgFR

Knox’s IG page is dominated by typical shared photos involving travels with her boyfriend and cuddles with her pets — but, no, that is not all.
The woman often called “Foxy Knoxy” has also posted a couple howlers wherein she’s done up in the woods as Red Riding Hood and she’s running away by somebody in a full Big Bad Wolf costume. Germany’s Black Forest provides the setting for freaky fairy tale photos.
Knox first made global headlines in 2007. While studying in Italy, she was arrested for the kinky sex murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher. Amanda’s first trial enthralled the public and she received a 26-year sentence.
After four years in jail, a second trial acquitted Knox of the killing and she returned home to Seattle. However, a third court proceeding in 2013 reversed the acquittal, but the United States will not extradite her.
As such, don’t expect Amanda to be posing as any storybook figures in Italy soon — or ever.
