Knox leaves Italy to head home to US

Amanda Knox headed home to the United States a free woman Tuesday, the morning after an Italian appeals court radically overturned the American student's certainty of sexually assaulting and brutally slaying her British roommate.

The Italy-US Foundation, which has championed Knox's cause, said she deceased shortly after noon (1000 GMT) from Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport on the way to London, from where she will catch a between flight to the United States the 24-year-old Knox, who is returning to Seattle, arrived at the airport in a Mercedes with darkened windows and waited for board inside a confidential waiting area, out of public view.

Back in Perugia, the family of slain British student Meredith Kercher remain stunned by the verdict and searching for answers,"It was a bit of a shock," said Stephanie Kercher, the wounded older sister, It's very upsetting Lyle Kercher, a brother, said the family is still trying to appreciate how a decision that "was so certain two years ago has been so radically overturned."
