Amanda Knox says she was never allowed to mourn Meredith Kercher

Amanda Knox says she was never allowed to mourn Meredith Kercher”

"I remember that I loved her accent", Knox wrote in the essay published by the West Seattle Herald.

"The trial heard from friends of Meredith who said she didn't get on with Amanda and so to hear her say they were friends is a little odd".

On the anniversary of Kercher's slaying in Perugia, Italy, the cleared murder suspect penned an open letter sharing memories of their time together but lamenting that she was never given time to grieve her dead friend.

Writing Wednesday for Westside Seattle (formerly the West Seattle Herald), where the 30-year-old has a weekly column, Knox shared memories of Kercher, with whom she lived for parts of two months when the two were exchange students in Perugia, Italy, calling her "my closest friend in a new and exciting time in our lives". I remember the time I wanted to get dressed up and she happily loaned me a pair of her tights, like a big sister.

She went on: "She is painfully missed by everyone who loved her, I miss her, and I'm grateful for the memories of our time together".

Knox also bemoaned the fact that she was not "allowed" to mourn Kercher because Knox and then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were implicated in the Kercher's death.

Rudy Guede is now serving 16 years for Meredith's murder but judges ruled he did not act alone although no-one else has been charged or investigated.

"I remember sipping espresso together after class while Laura and Filomena, our Italian roommates, watched soap operas".

In this week's essay, she wrote that remembering Kercher was hard because she has to "dig through a decade of suffering just to reach them".

Raffaele Sollecito was also jailed and acquitted over the murder of Meredith Kercher.

Knox said she has fought through death threats, false accusations, and multiple trials, and her name has been intertwined with the woman's death.

The American student denied murdering Meredith and said people who believe she has no right to mourn her "are wrong".

"This day of mourning belongs to everyone whose lives Meredith touched...something Meredith's friends, family, supporters, and I all have in common is that Meredith's death changed our lives", Knox continued.

Now 30, Knox recounted time spent with her roommate as attractive and banal, calling Meredith my closest friend in a new and exciting time in our lives.

"And it's depressing to know that mourning her comes at the price of being criticised for anything I say or don't say today". They believe that I had something to do with her murder I didnt or that Meredith has been forgotten in the wake of my own struggle for justice she hasnt.

Amanda Knox was officially exonerated of the murder of Meredith Kircher in 2015, 8 years after she was arrested.
