Earlier this month, Knox appeared on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt to discuss her recent and first trip back to Italy after being accused of murdering her British roommate Meredith Kercher.

‘I was genuinely afraid,’ explains Knox, prompting Holt to ask what it was that made her so ‘fearful’ about the trip.

‘The fact that I had been invited by the Italy Innocence Project and welcomed to take part in their event was tremendously important to me,’ says Knox.

‘But that didn’t change the fact I still have people who send me messages describing how they’re going to murder me.’

America’s most infamous foreign exchange student had not been back to the country since she was acquitted in 2011, four years after Kercher’s death.

She spoke during a Trial By Media panel, and told those in attendance that she was depicted ‘on the global scene as cunning, psychopath, drugged, whore, guilty.’

This all culminated with Knox breaking down as she recounted the ‘false and baseless story, which fueled people’s fantasies.’

It was actually not until 2015 that she was fully cleared in the case, which spent four years in appeals court after her acquittal.

Italy’s highest overturned the 2009 conviction in the brutal murder and sexual assault of Kercher against Knox and her former boyfriend, Raffaelle Sollecito, in 2011.

The court did however uphold Knox’s slander conviction for wrongly accusing Congolese-born bar owner Diya Lumumba in the murder.

It reduced the slander sentence to three years.

Knox spent nearly four years in jail after being convicted, and had been sentenced to 26 years following her initial conviction.

The court battle went on for seven and a half years, with flip-flop decisions that saw her return to the United States after being acquitted only to face another trial after the acquittal was thrown out.
