Knox, age 20 at that time, was in Italy, living with her roommate, Meredith Kercher. On a day as usual, as it could have been, Knox was hit with an incident that would go on to change her life forever.
Knox and her then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, found Knox’s British roommate with several knife wounds lying dead. Upon reporting to the police, it took no time for the case to spread like wildfire and soon become a global headline.
Eventually, Knox and her then-boyfriend were taken into custody as prime suspects of the murder.
When Twitter was starting to catch up with the Popularity of Facebook, the case got Amanda’s name trending on Twitter and all major social media platforms.
After the investigation, the pair were accused of murder, found guilty, and were sentenced to prison. However, after spending close to four years in prison, people wondered if the justice was rightfully served, enabling the case to be restudied.
Upon which in 2011, Knox and Sollecito were set free. Knox, after getting released, came back to America, tried living a normal life, and was resuming her college degree.
But the nightmare did not end for Knoxin as in 2013, the case was again reopened, and another court trial was appealed. Thankfully, the trial was overturned by the Court of Cassation, Italy. However, the more exposure the case got, the more it was tough for Knox to prove her innocence.
In the back and forth Justice war, Amanda was once again inside the court's walls in 2014 after she and Sollecito were again found guilty of the murder in 2014. Sollecito was sentenced to a 25-year sentence, and Knox was sentenced to 28.5 years.
The verdict never sat right for many; as a result, protests were happening in the US, and Political affairs led the case to be reponed a. Finally, the high-profile case was overturned by The Supreme Court of Italy in 2015.
The case consisted of another guilty, named Rudy Guede, an even bigger suspect than Knox, as his DNA samples were found during the murder investigation.
Guede was later found guilty and sentenced to 16 years in prison in 2008. But after serving a little over a decade in prison, Guede was released in 2017.
The nightmare still haunts Knox to this day, and speaking up on Guedes release, she said,
"I am the one who has been condemned to live with his infamy… And while I can't say that I wish him suffering or imprisonment, I do wish that he had been fully held accountable for what he did and that he acknowledged what he did, and I don't know if that will ever happen”
