SEATTLE — It was the photo that ran worldwide after an Italian court once again convicted Amanda Knox in the sensational murder case involving her and her former boyfriend: A person, covered by a coat, leaving her mother's Seattle home and speeding away in a car.

WAS IT KNOX? OR NOT?

Knox's family spokesman, David Marriott, said Thursday that Knox was at the house when the verdict was read that day, but said he didn't know whether the person who emerged was Knox. The Associated Press and other media outlets identified the person who left the home, surrounded by Knox's family, as someone believed to be Knox.

On Friday, Marriott sent the AP an email that stated he had made inquiries and that the person wasn't Knox, but he didn't elaborate and didn't immediately respond to a phone call seeking additional comment.

SO WHO WAS IN THE COAT?

It's unclear. The coat-wrapped person achieved one goal, leading some of the photographers camped outside away from the house. Somehow, Knox left her mother's home and appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" in New York on Friday.
