Diya "Patrick" Lumumba
Diya "Patrick" Lumumba, a Congolese-born owner of a popular Perugia bar called "Le Chic," who hired Amanda Knox to work part-time.
Lumumba was briefly arrested and charged with Kercher's murder after being falsely implicated by Knox.
She has argued that police found and misconstrued a text message on her phone to Lumumba that roughly translated to, "See you later." The American colloquial expression for good-bye had been interpreted by the police as a plan to rendezvous that night.
During an all-night interrogation in which Knox says she was verbally and physically abused, and repeatedly asked about Lumumba, she told police she had a "vision" that Lumumba was at the cottage. She tried to retract her statement the following morning.
Lumumba successfully sued Knox and she has been ordered to pay him 40,000 euros in damages. His bar never recovered after his arrest and went out of business.
