In 2007, the world became captivated by a gripping international murder case that had an American exchange student, Amanda Knox, at the centre of it all.
A 20-year-old Knox was studying in Perugia, Italy when she was accused of killing her 21-year-old British roommate, Meredith Kercher. It was alleged that Kercher's death was a result of a sex game gone wrong involving Knox and her then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito.
Knox was tried and sentenced to 26 years in prison while Sollecito received 25 years. After serving four years in jail, Knox filed an appeal to reverse her conviction and in 2015, both she and Sollecito were exonerated by Italy's highest court. Upon her acquittal in 2011, she returned home to the U.S.
“I am tremendously relieved and grateful for the decision of the Supreme Court of Italy. The knowledge of my innocence has given me strength in the darkest times of this ordeal," Knox said in a statement following her release. "And throughout this ordeal, I have received invaluable support from family, friends, and strangers. To them, I say: Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your kindness has sustained me. I only wish that I could thank each and every one of you in person.”
It's been six years since Knox gained her freedom and even though she's now a household name, she's finally living a "normal-person" life according to an exclusive interview with People magazine.
Knox also makes a surprising admission during the chat.
