Amanda Knox: Overwhelmed, Home in Seattle

by at . Comments

Amanda Knox arrived home in Washington State after four years in an Italian prison for the murder of Meredith Kercher, a crime she says she didn't commit.

Not surprisingly, she's a bit overwhelmed by the events of the past week.

Monday's Amanda Knox verdict came after two years of research, new DNA evidence and appeals eared the American student a new trial. After that trial, the U.S. student's 2009 murder conviction was overturned and she was set free immediately.

Knox told reporters that she still hasn't adjusted to the "surreal" events of recent days. "I'm really overwhelmed right now," she said in a broken voice.

"I was looking down from the plane and it seemed like everything wasn't real."

Unlike with Casey Anthony, Nancy Grace's criticism of Knox appears to put her in the minority. Amanda thanked her many supporters Tuesday night.

"What's important for me to say is just thank you to everyone who has believed in me, who has defended me, who has supported my family," said Knox, who wept when the jury's decision was read in Perugia, Italy two nights ago.

"My family's the most important thing for me right now and I just want to go be with them. Thank you for being there for me."
