She continued, “I would love nothing more than if people referred to the events in Perugia as ‘The Murder of Meredith Kercher by Rudy Guede,’ which would make me the marginal figure I should have been, the innocent roommate … But I know that my false convictions and subsequent trials became the story people became obsessed with. I know they’ll call it the ‘Amanda Knox Saga’ in the future. “
