Author of book on Amanda Knox is making Tri Cities appearances

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- The author of a book on the international scandal involving Amanda Knox is making appearances in the Tri Cities.

Candace Dempsey is the author of "Murder in Italy."

She spoke at the Richland Library Thursday to give her first-hand account of the two year process to write and publish it. 

Most people have heard about the murder of British student Meredith Kercher in 2007 and how University of Washington honor student Amanda Knox quickly became the prime suspect. Dempsey says the murder became her obsession.  "I had to go to Italy.  I had to read thousands of documents and everyday there would be some new wrinkle in the case.  So you could never know it all.  You could never feel like you learned enough," said Dempsey.

Dempsey will appear at Hastings in Richland Friday for a book signing from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m.
