Bruce Jenner had a revealing interview with Diane Sawyer on April 24. And now, a website revisited Amanda Knox's own turn in front of the journalist two years ago in the light of her murder case. Meanwhile, the FBI was reportedly called in following death threats leveled against the ex-girlfriend of Raffaele Sollecito.

"The special Diane Sawyer interview was called A Murder. A Mystery. Amanda Knox Speaks. and brought in 8.5 million viewers," the report from Web Pro News said.

"The case of Amanda Knox spawned a movie, Face of an Angel, that explores the case from the perspective of the reporters covering the trial."

Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were acquitted in the murder case involving the death of Meredith Kercher by the Italian Supreme Court last month.

Back then, following Amanda Knox's interview with Diane Sawyer on her murder case, Science of People ran an article about the body language of Raffaele Sollecito's ex.

"Throughout the interview Amanda Knox had a noticeably slow blink rate, which is a good sign that she was not lying. Deception and high nerves can both cause a faster blink rate," it said.

"For most of the interview Knox's posture and the way she held her hands was quite relaxed," the article added. "This matches her stance of innocence and that she has nothing to hide."

"The only time she showed extreme nerves was during the intense swallow following Sawyer's question about withholding information."

Earlier, the FBI was called in after death threats to Amanda Knox in connection to her murder case.

"We've been given reason to believe they have the ability to carry out their threats. We know who it is and their address. The FBI is investigating," a source told Radar Online. "The vast majority of internet trolls harassing Amanda are British."

Raffaele Sollecito, meanwhile, has distanced himself from his former girlfriend, Amanda Knox, after they were cleared of the murder case.

"I no longer want to be known as 'Amanda Knox's former Italian boyfriend," he told People. " I want to be known for something else than being connected by the prosecutors to a gruesome murder in which I had no part."

"I prefer to be known as Raffaele Sollecito, the guy who faced all of this and came through at the other end."
