GIST: "The federal government shutdown is throwing a wrench into a briefing on the Amanda Knox case that was supposed to take place at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center on Wednesday, Oct. 2......... Retired King County Judge Mike Heavey organized the briefing   to shine a light on what he calls a classic case of wrongful conviction.    “It is so unfair that for the rest of her life, some people think she might have been involved in the horrific murder of her beautiful roommate,” Heavey said. The other speakers who were scheduled to join Heavey included:  Steve Moore, a retired FBI Supervisory Agent who believes the evidence is deeply flawed and Knox’s confession was a classic case of coercion."
