Amanda Knox cries for friend Meredith Kercher on podcast 12 years after murder

Amanda Knox, who was cleared of killing her Brit flatmate Meredith Kercher broke down crying while admitting she misses the sound of her voice.

Tears are shed as Knox fronts a new real-life crime podcast The Truth About True Crime With Amanda Knox: The Preppy Murder on which she reexamines the shocking killing of Jennifer Levin.

Levin was found strangled to death in Central Park in New York in 1986 and Robert Chambers, 19, was later convicted of the murder.

On the podcast series Knox, now 32, asks Levin’s friend Jessica Doyle what she would say to her if she was alive today.

Doyle responds saying: “To be able to talk it through and just sort of examine what went down and discuss her relationship with Robert.

“What do you think went down with Robert? Why did he decide to turn to murder as a way to express himself? Did you see signs?

"I’d just love to ask her about it and talk it through. I would like to hear what she has to say.

"We don’t have her voice here. I would like to hear her voice.”

Knox admits: “I’ve often thought the same thing about Meredith.”

She then sobs as Doyle sympathises: “I bet you have honey… Jesus.”

Knox says later in the podcast: “To me, she brought to mind my own missing friend and roommate, and the desperation of wanting to hear her voice again.

"Not just because she knows the real truth, but because she deserves to be heard.”

She adds: “There are always unanswered questions when someone’s life is cut short.

"Things only they would know with what really happened at the moment of their death.

"But unanswered questions are hard to bear.

"So over time, we tell ourselves larger stories that don’t fill in those crucial gaps as much as they try to make sense of the senseless.”

Knox was cleared of the murder of Ms Kercher – who was found with her throat cut and stabbed 50 times in Perugia in 2007 – by an Italian supreme court four years ago.

Local drifter Rudy Guede was later convicted of her murder and is serving a 16-year sentence, reduced from 30 years on appeal in 2009.

An autopsy also found Ms Kercher's bopdy was covered in bruises and injuries related to sexual assault.

Fingerprints were identified at the scene as belonging to drifter Rudy Guede, who was ultimately jailed for the brutal murder.

Knox revealed she even contemplated suicide after being accused of murder.

Amanda Knox also cried as she attended the conference of the Criminal Justice Festival in July.

The conference was organised by a group of lawyers based in the town and the Italy Innocence Project, a non-profit organisation focusing on wrongful convictions and miscarriages of justice across Europe.
