Italian police today named the fourth suspect they are hunting in connection with the murder of British exchange student Meredith Kercher, according to reports.

Rudy Ermann, 21, originally from the Ivory Coast, is believed by police to have been the third man in the student's flat in Perugia on the night she was killed, the Italian press said.

News agency Ansa said forensic work on a bloody fingerprint found on Miss Kercher's pillow led police to Ermann, who is believed to have left for Milan after she died.

Sources said the 21-year-old came to Italy recently in the care of a family in Perugia, but he left and is no longer in contact with them, Ansa reported.
