Amanda Knox Still "Traumatized," Father Says

by at . Comments

Amanda Knox may be a free woman, but her ordeal is far from over.

Released from an Italian prison and back home with her family after her murder conviction was overturned Monday night, the 24-year-old must now begin the hard part - coming to grips with what happened and what lies ahead.

"What's the trauma ... and when will it show up?" Curt Knox, her dad, asked reporters rhetorically. "She's a very strong girl, but it's been a tough time for her."

Amanda Knox Appeals

Amanda Knox may return University of Washington, where she was a student studying abroad at the time she arrested for murdering her roommate in 2007.

She was convicted in 2009 in the Meredith Kercher slaying, along with her boyfriend.

After two years of appeals, she wept as the verdict was read in Perugia, Italy this week, ensuring she could finally return home and resume a life outside jail.

What remains uncertain is her future, however.

It is too bad no other country speaks Italian now that Amanda is fluent in it. I would not go anywhere near that place.

Nancy Grace is a moron and needs to here what she is saying, she sounds exactly like the Italian prosecutor when she said; "I believe that while Amanda Knox did not wield the knife herself, I think that she was there, with her boyfriend, and that he did the deed, and that she egged him on. That's what I think happened." Since when did supposition become a point of law? Amanda Knox was released based on the evidence, or lack of evidence and was put in jail largely on supposition. Everyone has an opinion Nancy and you know what they say about opinions.......

Well, I live in Italy and it's a marvellous place! Unfortunately, the law system is screwed up and our country is divided into 2: pro and against Ms. Knox. Personally, I believe there must have been smth wrong, Amanda is not that innocent girl you guys are seing her. Immediately after the murder, the second day, she was around town kissing and laughing with her boyfriend. And Meredith was her best friend: how could she? Not even minimally shocked? Not grieving? Boh... Then, many versions, incriminating an innocent guys, indicating her boyfriend as one of the participants of the murder, yes, she had so many faces one couldn't say which "Amanda" was the real one.
Italy has treated Amanda with white gloves, there was so much pressure from the authorities, this is why she's free. The majority of the Italians are angry and believe the judges got paid: in $$$$$!
But God will watch over this case, sooner or later, who was involved will pay a very high price...
God bless Italy!!!!!
