I still find the Amanda Knox true-crime case, the murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher, in Italy, to be a really weird mystery. It seems like Knox maybe didn't do it, but it also seems like she's not telling the truth. Weird.
Amanda Knox is from Seattle, so there's been some coverage here, though not an overwhelming amount. This article, written by a friend of hers, claims she didn't do it, but really has no evidence other than the fact that the writer likes her.
Still, it's more readable than this thoroughly creepy FICTION piece where a writer imagines how things might have gone down had Knox really been involved.
