Amanda Knox Boyfriend? New Photos Emerge Of Knox In Seattle

Does Amanda Knox have a new boyfriend?

New photos published by The Mirror show Knox walking hand-in-hand with an unidentified man.

Since arriving back in the United States after being acquitted of the murder of Meredith Kercher, Knox has been keeping a fairly low profile.

However, these pictures of Knox and a mystery man are the second batch of Knox photos to spark media interest in the past week.

On Halloween, which is also the eve of the fourth anniversary of Kercher's death, Knox faced criticism for going out dressed as a cat burglar.

Kercher's father slammed Knox for being insensitive. "The anniversary is obviously a very difficult time for our family and images like this don't help," he said, according to The Mirror. In the last photograph taken of his slain daughter, she was dressed as a vampire for a Halloween party. She was found dead 24 hours later.

Knox's ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, who was also exonerated of Kercher's murder, recently spoke out about his time in prison and his relationship with Knox in an interview with the Italian newspaper Oggi.

Sollecito told the paper that he is planning a visit to her hometown of Seattle as soon as he can:

"We need each other -- we speak to each other on the phone and write to each other every day," he told Oggi, according to The Daily Mail. "I will certainly go and see Amanda. She asked me over and I accepted with pleasure and there is no saying I will wait until Christmas. I could go earlier -- I could go at any moment. I really want to see her again, to speak with her and look into her eyes."

If Sollecito does make the trip to Seattle, he may have competition for Knox's affections.
