How Meredith Kercher died?

  • Kercher was a fellow exchange student who shared her apartment with Knox.
  • She was murdered in her home. 
  • On 1st November, it was a public holiday and the Italians living in the house were away. 
  • She was alone in the house when she returned at 9 pm that evening. 
  • Knox called Kercher's phone which she kept in her jeans and could always be reached on, but the call was not answered. 
  • Knox then called Romanelli one of the two Italian trainee lawyers she and Kercher shared the apartment with. 
  • Knox and Sollecito then went to Via Della Pergola 7, and on getting no answer from Kercher unsuccessfully tried to break in the bedroom door, leaving it noticeably damaged. 
  • Knox then called her mother and was told to contact the police as an emergency. 
  • Sollecito called the Carabinieri getting through. 
  • Police telecommunications investigators arrived to inquire about an abandoned phone, which was, in fact, Kercher's Italian unit. 
  • Romanelli arrived and took over, explaining the situation to the police who were informed about Kercher's English phone, which had been handed in as a result of its ringing when Knox called it.
  • On discovering Kercher's English phone had been found dumped, Romanelli demanded that the policeman force Kercher's bedroom door open, but they did not think the circumstances warranted damaging private property. 
  • The door was then kicked in by a friend of Romanelli, and Kercher's body was discovered on the floor. 
  • She has been stabbed and died from exsanguination due to neck wounds.
  • On January 24, 2019, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ordered Italy to pay compensation to Knox for violating her rights in the hours after her arrest in Perugia.
