Amanda Knox was convicted of murder in Perugia, Italy, in 2009. In 2011 the conviction was overturned, and she was acquitted of the charge of murder. In March 2013, the Italian Court of Cassation annulled the acquittal and ordered a new review of the case. She now lives in Seattle, her hometown, and is studying creative writing.
When Amanda Knox left Seattle to study in Perugia, Italy, she was full of anticipation at the prospect of meeting Italian men, learning the language, and living in a centuries-old city teeming with other students. However, she had no idea that what seemed like the opportunity of a lifetime would turn into a living nightmare that continues to haunt her to this day.
