Amanda Knox has revealed why she initially lied and told Italian police she was in the apartment when her roommate Meredith Kercher was killed in November 2007.Sitting down with JuJu Chang on Friday’s Nightline, Knox explained that Italian police broke her down during a grueling 53-hour interrogation.”I was hit on the back of the head, I was yelled at. Police were coming in and out of the room telling me that I was a liar,” she said. “It was chaos. It was utter chaos.”Knox trial, conviction and acquittal was met with a worldwide media frenzy, with Knox’s every move dissected by critics. And now, on the heels of the release a new Netflix documentary, the 29-year-old exoneree is hoping to resolve some of those unanswered questions surrounding the case.
