It has been two years since the body of 21-year-old Meredith Kercher was found in the house she shared with fellow students in Perugia, Italy.
Months may have passed but her parents, John and Arline Kercher, say they are still struggling to comprehend what happened and why.
In a short statement commemorating their daughter's murder, the Kercher's said: "The two years since Meredith's death have passed very quickly. But, we still miss her more than ever."
"We can only hope now that a conclusion is reached in the next five weeks, so that we can finally dedicate ourselves to remember Meredith for the person that all of us knew and not as a victim or as a news item."
On November 2, 2007, Meredith's partially-dressed body was discovered. She had suffered a stab injury to her neck.
The case generated headlines worldwide, not least because one of the suspected murderers was a young American woman who prosecutors allege was involved with two males in a "drug-fueled sex game," which led to Kercher's death.
