Amanda Knox to Speak to ABC's Diane Sawyer in Exclusive Interview
Amanda Knox, the college junior who was at the center of a murder trial that riveted the attention of millions around the world, has never told her story. Now, after the dramatic Italian trial, conviction and the court appeal that finally acquitted and freed her, she will speak to ABC News.
