The Amanda Knox retrial seemed to have quieted down a bit as "Foxy Knoxy" was seen biking around in her neighborhood in Seattle, Washington. She is expected to assert her innocence in the conviction appeal.

In a series of photographs published in MailOnline, the 26-year-old Amanda Know was wearing a rather bland outfit, perhaps in an effort not to stand out, from the beige hooded jacket, beige pants to the spectacles.
Amanda Knox visited a local Goodwill store, according to the website, which sells used goods donated by people. The proceeds will go to the training and education of poor beneficiaries.
In recent days, it's been pretty quiet in all fronts for any Amanda Knox retrial update. There's no news on when the former student accused of killing her roommate Meredith Kercher will appeal the conviction of the Italian Supreme Court that sentenced her to 28 years in prison, while her boyfriend and co-defendant, Raffaele Sollecito received a 25-year-sentence.
However, Ron Judd revealed in a column he wrote for Seattle Times on March 7 that Amanda Knox's retrial has caused a rift between the sister cities of Seattle and Perugia, Italy.
The first casualty was the "Sister Orca" sculpture by Marvin Oliver that was supposed to be unveiled in Perugia Park. Then the mayor of Seattle, Mike McGinn, changed the name of a pocket park near Capitol Hill from the original "Perugia Park" to "Summit Slope Park," the columnist wrote.
While Amanda Knox's retrial resulted to her conviction by Italy's highest court, "Foxy Knoxy" however found unlikely support from social media where users posted photos of themselves holding up signs declaring her innocence.
MailOnline reported that the photos from random individuals started going viral after Amanda Knox posted last month a black and white photograph with the sign that read: "Si Amo Innocenti," which is Italian for "we are innocent."
