After four years in prison, the very recently freed 24-year-old left Perugia, Italy, for her hometown of Seattle on Tuesday. Upon her arrival at Sea-Tac Airport, Knox gave a brief press conference in which she described herself as "really overwhelmed" before tearfully thanking her supporters. She said she was particularly grateful to her family who, as she explained at the beginning of the statement, had helpfully reminded her to deliver her comments in English. [AP/HuffPo]
