Transcript for Amanda Knox Speaks Out on Netflix Documentary
But first that story that captivated the world. Amanda Knox caught in the middle of a murder case while studying abroad nine years ago. That night changed her life and now the focus of a netflix documentary, going to hear from Amanda Knox in a moment but first ABC's Neal Karlinsky has more details. Did you kill Meredith Kercher? Reporter: Just when you thought you heard everything about the Amanda Knox case comes this. The true crime documentary airing this week on netflix complete with fresh and at times chilling new interviews. If I'm guilty, it means that I am the ultimate figure to fear. Reporter: Knox this college student accused of murdering her college roommate Meredith Kercher in perugia, Italy in 2007, convicted, freed. Convicted again only to be found innocent once and for all by Italy's highest court last year. But a huge chunk of the public remains skeptical about her which the documentary feeds on. The film includes Knox's former boyfriend and one-time co-defendant. I known her only for five days. Reporter: And the man portrayed in some western media as the real villain, the prosecutor who expresses some of his own less than scientific theories. Asking why was Kercher covered in a blanket. A man would never think to do this. But at the center of it all is Knox, branded foxy knoxy in headlines around the word. She's now a writer for a small newspaper in Seattle. New interviews cast her as mysterious as ever. Either I'm a psychopath in sheep's clothing or I am you. Reporter: For "Good morning America," Neal Karlinsky, ABC news, Seattle. And Amanda Knox joins us now. Good to see you again. Good to see you again. Could we start with that last statement that you made. It's so provocative and that's the way you decided to portray yourself -- that's who you are in this documentary. Explain a little bit more about. Well, I think I'm trying to explain what it feels like to be wrongfully convicted. Either to be this terrible monster or a regular person who is vulnerable and what I'm trying to convey is that a regular person like me, just a kid who was studying abroad who loved languages could be caught up in this nightmare where they're portrayed as something that they're not. I can't help but think about the last time that you were sitting here, January 2014. You had the conviction had stood again and then the following year it's overturned again. Just the emotional roller coaster and many want to know why now? Why are you deciding with this documentary now? Well, now my attention is turning towards the next person because my name is cleared. I'm fine, you know, I'm moving on with my life. I'm going back to graduate school. I'm redeveloping my relationships, I'm redeveloping my relationship with freedom. But there remains the fact that I'm in a unique position as an exonoree. I can't go back to my life I had before neither can the other who is are out there and a lot of times their stories go overlooked and I think that it's our moral duty to examine the cases of wrongfully convicted people from the perspective of their humanity and to really demand we have objective looks at their cases and the facts of their case as well as them as people, as opposed to demonizing them the way that I was. And the facts of the case and that's what this documentary. Will we learn anything new. There's some people, I don't have to tell you, some people will never be convinced that you are innocent and there are others who feel that you have been wronged. I mean there's like two camps here. Is there anything new that's going to shed any light in this documentary? You know, what I really appreciate about this documentary is that they -- it's good journalism in the sense that they give you the facts of the case, the reliable facts of the case and they say, decide for yourself. And the other thing that they do is they ground the case and the criminal justice system and the people who implement it and who are a part of it so by showing who was a part of it, not just me, not just my co-defendant but the prosecutor and the media, they're shedding more light on what happened than all the speculation that's been put out there combined. Especially when you are going to see the prosecutor as he is portrayed in the documentary is different than people think. I know that your motivation is to help. You could have sold this for a great deal of money and put it up on the big screen. People that are involved in this documentary say you are not receiving a paycheck for this. That you want to help people. But when you think about Meredith's family, do you think about how this is for them to relive it and to have the story out here again. Oh, my gosh. It's -- for them, that's never going to end and that's the really sad part about this tragedy is that as soon as the prosecutor made it about like it has to be Amanda, they took away the fact that this case is about her and what the truth was about what happened to her. And, you know, she's been lost in all of that. And -- but that doesn't change the fact that we have also an obligation to everyone that could potentially be innocent to like find out the truth for the sake of the victim and for the sake of them, as well. Your life now? My life now is -- I mean, I'm -- it's been a year since I've been exonerated and I'm like redeveloping like I said this relationship with the world where I'm not being hunted down and on the one hand I have -- like I'm writing, I'm with my family, I'm with my friends, I have great relationships and on the other hand I also want to like continue to put forth my passion for these people. Like I've healed because other people have reached out to me. Other exxonorees and have this negative thing that happened to me put on them because their stories are important and I don't think we quite recognize that yet. And thank you for sharing your story and coming here. Thank you. As you have over the years. Wish you all the best. The new netflix documentary "Amanda Knox" is available tonight right after midnight.
