Submitted by on October 3, 2011 – 4:14 pm4 Comments

Convictions have been overturned for Amanda Knox and Raffaelle Sollecito, the young American woman and her Italian boyfriend who were both accused and convicted of murdering Knox’s roommate Meredith Kercher. At the time of Kercher’s murder, both women were college students studying abroad in Perugia, Italy. After the judge finished reading his opinion, the Italian courtroom was a sea of smiles and tears—Amanda herself was hysterically crying as she was lead out of the courtroom by police. The crowd outside the courthouse was abuzz with celebratory whistles and boos as passionate and varying opinions continue to be expressed over this case. But the question still remains: Who killed Meredith Kercher and will the right person do time for the crime?
