An unsafe verdict overturned, so you could call that justice to an extent, but theres still rather a lot about this case that doesn't add up and the case has been far from answered imo.

People are saying if they didn't do it... who did? But there is someone else already in jail who was also found guilty for the murder of Meredith Kercher... his name is Rudy Guede.

Didn't he even admit at one point that he did it on his own, then he changed his story as it would lessen his prison time?

Guede's original statement included another unidentified accomplice..

"after his 2007 arrest in Germany, Guédé had stated even then that another man was there at 7 Via Pergola on the night of Meredith Kercher's murder. It was only later that he began to say the man was Sollecito. And then he added Knox into his tale. His confession to Alessi that someone other than Knox and Sollecito was there jives with his original story- and with the evidence showing Knox's and Sollecito's innocence."

Guede's DNA was found apparently all over the apartment and inside Kercher's body. Apparently he had a history of aggravated burglary running up to this incident....

Leading up to Kercher's murder, Guédé was caught breaking and entering- in one instance even smashing a window, as in the Perugia murder- and wielding a knife. His last theft was at a Milan school on October 27, 2007. The owner, Maria Antoinette Salvadori del Prato, reported 2,000 Euros and a digital camera as missing. Three weeks later, she arrived early at the school with a locksmith and found Guédé there. She called the police, who came and questioned Guédé- they found a stolen laptop, the digital camera, and a ten-inch kitchen knife in his backpack. Yet, Guédé was not charged and arrested. Instead, the police escorted him to Milano Centrale railway station and put him on a train back to Perugia.

Just one week after Guédé's banishment to Perugia, Meredith Kercher was murdered. It was the beginning of the long weekend of All Saints Day. Guédé broke into the Perugia cottage shared by Kercher and seven housemates. The four Italian guys and two Italian girls were away. American Amanda Knox was staying the night in Sollecito's apartment. That left Meredith Kercher to come home after an evening with friends to a lonely cottage. She arrived at 8:55pm. According to police testimony, she called her mother at 8:56pm. The call was interrupted. Kercher was dead by 9:30pm, possibly 9:50. At 10:00pm, Guédé used her UK cell phone to call her UK bank but he used the wrong area code.

A convicted criminal he shared a cell with says that he confessed to the killing with another unidentified accomplice, which actually ties up with his original version

Guédé told Alessi that Amanda Knox and Raeffaele Sollecito were not with him at the address of 7 Via Pergola, in Pergugia, where Meredith Kercher was murdered on the night of November 1, 2007. He told Alessi that someone else was with him who is not yet known to the prosecution. "There was I but I was not alone- I was with a person who has never been touched by the investigation," said Guédé.

As someone said what was the motive for Knox and her BF to kill Kercher?

Money had been taken from the flat but that could hardly be landed on a room mate as a motive surely?

Of course none of us will know for sure...but to be found guilty - the evidence has to prove guilt above reasonable doubt.

The police apparently managed to lose 4 computers which would have showed pictures of Knox and Kercher as friends.

Terrible police work. Shoddy management of a crime scene and an unsafe conviction rightfully overturned.

Feel very sorry for the Kerchers who will now probably have to endure the book / movie and general profiteering off the back of the death of their daughter

I still think she was guilty. It just doesn't add up at all to be honest. The lack of DNA evidence looks like it got Knox off the hook, yet this was suppoedly 'contaminated' and such.

Not sure why a lot of Americans are coming out acting as if they have won something. Yes, one of your citizens may have just got away with murder. Be proud...

The case has been unclear throughout and arguments could be held either way. However, the actions of Knox throughout speak volumes in my opinion. Plus the lies she told. Why lie if she was innocent?

The fact that there wasn't any solid DNA proof appears to have been enough to overturn this. Plus they already have Guede taking the fall for it.
