I like all the smiling happy photos of the happy couple together.
In the bizarre world of Amanda Knox they would be offered up as slam dunk evidence of Dewani’s innocence because they are proof that they are “friends”.

What a strange story - what possible motive would the husband have to kill his lovely wife of a few days?  He was the one with all the money it seems.  I have heard of a lot of murders on those roads through poorer areas in South Africa but apparently there is a lot more to the story and I don’t have enough time now to read through all of the information.  It wasn’t a jealous rage sort of thing - if he did it, then it was all coldly preplanned and in a short amount of time.  Odd.  I will have to read more about this later.

Hi believing,

I recommend looking at the evidence when it is presented at the trial rather than trying to make sense of a senseless murder. Perhaps in Utopia nobody does anything that doesn’t make sense. However, in the real world there have been numerous high-profile cases where people from respectable backgrounds have committed murders with little or no motive. 

Dr Harold Shipman murdered his patients for no obvious reason.

Karla Homolka was convicted of the rape and killing of three teenage girls - including her own sister.

Rachel Shoaf and Sheila Eddy killed Skylar Neese because they didn’t want to be her friend anymore.

There’s an article on the ABC website about a woman who has been convicted of killing her husband of eight days:

Newlywed Gets 30 Years in Cliff-Push Murder
