American student Amanda Knox flew home free on Tuesday after spending four years in an Italian jail, leaving the family of murdered British student Meredith Kercher racked with anguish that they are no closer to the truth about her killing.
Knox, cleared of the murder by an appeals court on Monday night, left Rome shortly before midday for London where she and her family were boarding a connecting flight to their home in Seattle, airport officials said.
The 24-year-old broke down sobbing and nearly collapsed with emotion on Monday night after an appeals court in Perugia ruled she and her former boyfriend, Italian computer student Raffaele Sollecito, were not guilty of killing Kercher and should be freed immediately.
Prosecutors said on Tuesday they would appeal against the ruling and Kercher's disappointed family said their ordeal and the search for answers about the brutal murder would go on.
"We're still absorbing it. You think you've come to a decision and now it's been overturned," Meredith's mother Arline told reporters at a news conference.

Actually, that's what saved her in the end. Better investigation techniques likely would have resulted in an airtight case against her.
No, more than techniques it’s the mountains of evidence completely ‘lacking’ in a murder such as this.....Mr. Moore had much to say about what is looked for in a brutal murder such as this once committed. 47 knife wounds....you can read his determining facts here for the Knox case.
The sheer volume of forensic evidence of Guedes presence is overwhelming...... Evidence of any other persons presence or involvement could not be erased without wiping out that of Guedes.
Therefore, the room could not have been cleaned, and was not cleaned. This means that the missing evidence was not removedit was never there.
Never voluntarily talk to police if there is the remotest chance they might view you as a suspect. Always ask for a lawyer to be present at any questioning.
Knox is indeed a little american whore taking drugs and drinking alcohol.And that horific murder has certainly a link with some bad relations .
Since you defend her anyway and don’t care about truth and justice you are on the same level . Many shadows remain on that affair and Knox lied several times.
Guess that your sisters and daughters are like her and that you are fat rough dudes who deserve your fading away society.
Suddenly i can’t ear there any so-called conservatives sticking on “principles”. Poor you , i understand that you are done. Obama or Romney make your choice...and prepare to emigrate or to have a pathetic life in a third-world dhimmy country
Do want her put away even if she’s innocent?
Just check facts before speaking...and will stop making a fool of yourself.
Post 10 “old world aristocrats”
And ? What’s your point ? You want a brain ?
So what’s your point ? Do you believe every linguistics major automatically speaks every language on the planet ?
“Knox was arrested just a few weeks after she had arrived in Italy and could not speak Italian.”
“Knox was portrayed as sexually promiscuous and lacking inhibition, while at the same time working hard to support herself and trying to learn Italian; Kercher was depicted as more serious and studious, who had at the end of her life began to chafe at her American roommate’s sloppiness.”
What is your point, she is still trash, convicted of lying to a court, and still stands convicted of that charge.
Convicted of lying to a court ? WHEN ? Show me the courtroom testimony where she lied. She was convicted of giving conflicting statements to police after interrogating her for 14 hours. Let’s see how consistent your story would stay with 12 cops in an interrogation room hounding you in Italian suggesting falsehoods to see if you’ll accidentally agree to any of them just to get them to shut up. And who hit you on the back of the head periodically to “make you remember”. When you were 20 years old, mind you.
To be as gullible as you are, believing the lies of a convicted prosecutor, and then spreading smears against an innocent young woman makes you the trash.
I need not explain my point to you, everybody else on this thread understands it perfectly.
Obviously, what you need explained to you are my tactics, which are really quite simple: get you to run your mouth and you will make my point for me, character assassinating yourself while aiming for Amanda Knox. Thank you for being so compliant.
As for wanting brains, no need, I've got yours working for me.
“Guess that your sisters and daughters are like her —————”
You are sometning,you really are.
