Sorry, I haven’t been following this thread, but was there ever any answer to this question?

The smoke in the air from the fires isn't helping any either. We've got the worst air pollution in the world right now.


Oh gosh yes - I didn't think about that. Must be very unpleasant. I have a friend on Vancouver Island who isn't enjoying the air quality - but I know it's significantly worse further South.

Oh, ah - no.

For a start, it's something of a given that John Kercher could not have used psychic methods to "know" who killed his daughter.

The poster who wrote those words had a clear insinuation in mind. That insinuation was: "John Kercher knew that Knox and Sollecito killed his daughter". Which of course is arrant nonsense.

The horribly sad thing is that had the Perugia police, prosecutor and lower courts done their jobs properly and ethically (and lawfully) from the start, John Kercher would have long ago achieved some form of closure by knowing that it was Guede - and Guede alone - who killed his daughter.

As it was though, Meredith's entire family were emotionally pulled around all over the place by having to endure the apparent understanding that Knox and Sollecito were correctly convicted, then (no less than eight years after the murder itself...) final confirmation that the prosecution's original thesis wasn't worth the paper it was written on. I suspect that right up to the day he died, John Kercher was still conflicted and confused about things. And that's a very saddening thing to consider.

Vancouver, BC, is topping out as #2 in Air Quality misery. Portland, OR, is steady at #1 in the miserable category.
