She arrived home after a long Halloween party. She was dressed as a vamp. Meredith Kercher, a 21 yo British student, went to her room and relaxed. There was no one else in the house. Her flatmates were out. Late-night, somebody went in her room. Maybe several people did. Meredith was raped and she received 46 stabs. One of them, deadly, on the throat. After that, they covered her body with a duvet. It was the night from the 1st to the 2nd of November, in 2007. And what happened in that room in Perugia (Italy) remains a mystery. ¿Who were with her?
A Netflix documentary, Amanda Knox, takes this story from the point of view of the prime suspect, Amanda Knox, the American flatmate of the victim. She was condemned to 26 years along with her boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, and Rudy Guede, a drug dealer. After 4 years in prison, the couple was released due to lack of biological evidence. Rudy, however, remains imprisoned claiming his innocence.
One of the friends of the murdered, explains to ICON that the family wants peace right now, and that they are trying to recover from the tragedy. “The judicial system failed Meredith”, says.
