Raffaele Sollecito, Amanda Knox's Ex-Boyfriend, Reportedly Chasing Job In Seattle

Raffaele Sollecito, the former Italian boyfriend of Amanda Knox, is scheduled to visit his ex-girlfriends's hometown of Seattle on Friday to thank supporters in the area and interview for a job at a tech company, the Seattle Post Intelligencer reports.

According to four sources who spoke to the West Seattle Herald on the condition of anonymity, Sollecito, 27, plans to host a party for a handful of people who supported him during the Meredith Kercher murder trial. The sources also said he will interview at a tech company on the city's east side that is "possibly Microsoft."

Knox is not listed as a guest on the party's official invite list, according to the paper's sources, who said they didn't know whether Sollecito's trip will include a reunion with Knox, who currently lives in Seattle's International District.

A reunion between Knox and Sollecito has been rumored ever since the pair were released from Italian prison in October, according to the Telegraph.

In December, Sollecito told the Italian magazine OGGI that he was eager to visit Knox in Seattle.

"We have so many things to say to each other after spending four years in a hellish whirl which crushed us and caused us indescribable suffering and nearly ruined our lives," Sollecito told the magazine.

Since then, Sollecito has begun dating Italian volleyball player Annie Achille, who is his distant cousin, according to the Daily Mail.

Knox, meanwhile, is dating James Terrano, a music student at the University of Washington she met before studying abroad in Italy.
