Amanda Knox revealed to Meredith Kercher that she had sent her messages, saying she would like to be in a relationship.

Knox said she is thinking about the British 21-year old student who died in her death as the anniversary approaches.

Now, though, Meredith says she is now a mother to a daughter.

On November 1 2007, Meredith – an exchange student from the University of Leeds – was murdered in Perugia, Italy, where she was studying at the time.

Knox and Raffaele, Knox’s ex-boyfriend, were then jailed. They were released in 2011 after an appeal.

Knox, who had spent four years behind bars for her murder conviction against her ex-roommate, was overthrown by the Italian Supreme Court after she served four years. 

Rudy Guede from the area was also convicted after Kercher’s DNA was discovered on him and in her room.

It's now over 14 years since 21-year-old student Meredith Kercher was raped and killed in a brutal attack in the apartment they shared in the Italian city of Perugia, on November 1, 2007

Meredith Kercher (21 years old) was murdered and raped at her apartment in Perugia. This happened on November 1, 2007, 14 years ago.

In 2008, he was sentenced to 16-years in prison. He was released December 2020. The rest of the sentence will be spent doing community service. 

Amanda, who is now back in America, said that she hadn’t spoken to Kercher’s relatives yet. Because I am aware that this is a complex situation, it’s not my type of place. At least I knew that in the past. It’s not clear to me now how their feelings are about me.

“And I don’t want to try and force them into a marriage if they are experiencing trauma.

“So, they have received messages from me through intermediaries informing them that I am interested in establishing a connection with you. You should contact me. Und ich hoffe, that it’s something they’d like.

“I want what they want.” It is my desire to find the truth. Meredith should be known the truth. She should be recognized for the person she is, as well as their pain. It is my wish that they get the closure they need. That is what I also want.

Rudy Guede is her murderer. Because he is out.

Guede was found guilty in 2008 of Kercher’s killing. However, he was freed from prison last year and will spend the remaining 16 years of his 16-year sentence performing community service.

Amanda was known by the name ‘Foxy’ Knoxy in the media as it was the subject of the Court case in Italy.

“I don’t know what he thinks about this today. He should regret that, I hope. I don’t believe he’s actually acknowledged what he did. He also hasn’t asked for forgiveness.

‘Maybe he feels like a f***ing victim too because he was a young guy who was abandoned by his dad, brought like foster care in Italy (correct), didn’t like have a great thing going for him and he sort of spiralled out of control going from burglary, to burglary, to burglary, until he majorly, majorly f***ed up.

Knox was then bitter that Meredith had become synonymous with Knox’s death, even though she has been completely exonerated. 

Amanda Knox (pictured in an Italian court in 2009) and her former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were later jailed, before eventually being released from prison in 2011 following an appeal against their conviction. She was fully exonerated in 2015

Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were later convicted. They were released in 2011. Her conviction was overturned in 2015.

“His name does not belong to the person who is involved in this terrible crime. My name is. Although I wish I had a better term, I believe I can say that I am angry. He is my brother, and I have no compassion for him.

“I do not believe that his name should have ever been linked to his actions. The fact that nobody seems to care, even though they were his actions really bothers me.

“And maybe my anger was misdirected towards him because all the other people didn’t seem to notice that it was him.”

Knox stated that Meredith is a topic she often thinks of around the anniversary her death. 

When asked Wednesday on Call her Daddy what she thought about Meredith she replied that it changed depending on the season. Every time I see her, I remember December 4, the day I was first convicted. Some moments are vivid to me in this case.

Talk about my identity, even if it has been stolen by this horrible tragedy. Since she died, she didn’t have the opportunity to defend herself against false stories about her.

“I think about it because I have a daughter and I am thinking of that anniversary. I feel like I can put myself in her shoes every year. Was it her most difficult moments? It was horrible, terrible moments. It was so horrible that I thought it might have been me.

“And this was the year that I could not help but to put myself in her shoes and think, “Oh my god, if that happens to my baby.” How do you react? What do you do?

Knox, with Christopher Robinson as her husband, had Eureka Know Robinson, a girl. They were married in 2018.

She stated that she thought of changing her name to Eureka and not using Knox as a nickname.

A local man, Rudy Guede (pictured being escorted by police in Italy in 2007), was convicted in a separate trial after his DNA was found on Kercher's body and in the room where she died. He was sentenced to 16 years in prison in 2008, but was released in December 2020 and will spend the rest of his sentence doing community work

In 2008, Guede was sentenced for 16 years. But he was freed in December 2020. The rest of the sentence will be spent doing community work.

She answered, “I had.” Funny, it seems like the entire question is about whether or not I accept my identity.

“And, I’ve always felt a little stubborn about this. It’s almost as if there is nothing wrong with my personality. It’s almost as if the whole world thinks there is something wrong. It’s not mine problem.

“Like I’m pushing myself back, I’m trying say “no, it is not my fault” and my daughter accepts that I am her mother even though I try to protect her against all the forces beyond my control.

Asked if she’d considered changing her own name ever, she said: ‘No, in the same way that I never remotely considered taking a plea deal because I didn’t f***ing do it, and so no.’ 

Speaking earlier this month, Knox said she faces an ‘ongoing struggle’ to live with the public’s ‘made up version of herself.

Knox was quickly the focus of attention as more details were revealed. This is described as an effort to create a story about her as a “sexually voracious femme fatale” and Knox and her boyfriend as main suspects.

The media covered the 20-year old US student, who was called ‘Foxy Knoxy’ by the media. She had a nickname and was known at that time as an American sex-mad party girl and an evil temptress. 

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour on November 4, Knox said the story that captured global attention ‘became a morality tale about female sexuality.’

Emma Barnett spoke out on Tuesday that Merith had been pitched as the virginal Madonna character, and she was shown as the sexually obsessed, lustful, uninhibited womanre.

“I believe that there was an extraordinary violation of my privacy. Barnett said that she saw a capitalization of my identity.

‘People vehemently stood for one side or the other and were unable… again there was the sense of confirmation bias you see what you want to see.’ 

Knox said she was speaking out about her ordeal after the release of Stillwater – a Hollywood movie based on a fictionalised version of the events surrounding the murder of Ms Kercher. 

When asked by Barnett what she would say to actor Matt Damon, the lead in the movie, Knox said: ‘We should talk. Let’s have a chat. I’m not going to judge you. Let’s recognise something real is happening here’.

Knox claimed that Knox was portrayed in the movie, along with the press, as “not real human beings but ideas of people”.

Knox claimed that Meredith had been made invisible by “they” (the media at the time) and was a victim they would never again name. ‘It’s fascinating to me the number of times Foxy Knoxy was in the headline, but Meredith was not.

‘Just the idea of a sexually deviant violent woman was enough to get people so riled up that they didn’t care about the truth anymore.

‘And that is an insane problem, and that is something that I don’t think has really really been addressed. Our obsession with female sexuality and deviancy is how justice was stopped.

When asked how today’s case might have been seen, particularly in light of the MeToo movement she stated: “It’s interesting. I think that it would be… I would hope that people would have been more sceptical about that portrayal of events today.

Speaking BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, Amanda Knox (pictured during the interview) said the media scrum following the conviction and later release made her lose control of her identity

Amanda Knox spoke on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour. She stated that she lost control of her identity due to the scrum after her conviction.

“That being said, I believe that social media was active during my case and made a significant impact on how it turned out.

‘And if anything it has become even more about tribalism, which is also a big problem where people vehemently stood for one side or the other and were unable… again there was the sense of confirmation bias you see what you want to see.’

“So it was very similar to when I first came into the world, I had a conversation almost every day with an imaginary version of myself. Before they even knew me, that’s how I felt.

“And that’s a continuing problem for me.

‘It’s an ongoing struggle for me that has… it’s not over.’
