Who is Rudy Guede and why was he released from prison?

Rudy Guede, 34, was originally scheduled to be released from prison on January 4, 2022.

He was released early on good behavior Wednesday, 45 days early from his scheduled release.

Guede was the only person who was definitely convicted in 2008 for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher.

At the time of her death in September 2007, Kercher, 21, of Coulsdon, Surrey was found half-naked with her throat cut in Perugia, Italy.

Fabrizio Ballarini, Guede’s attorney, told The Sun, “My client has paid his dues for justice. He’s a free man.”

Ballarini reassured the Italian press that his client had received “an excellent training.”

He first paid tribute to the victim’s family and said: “First thoughts must go to the victim and her family.”

Who is Amanda Knox?

Kercher’s former roommates were also found guilty of murder at the time of her death.

Amanda Knox, 33, and her then boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, 36, were released from prison in 2011 after an appeal.

In 2020 Knox told Good Morning America how she felt she was carrying the burden of Guede’s crime.

“I continue to be shocked to this day that he was the forgotten killer,” Knox said.

“He hid in silence, was found guilty of lesser crimes, and did not have to live with the burden forever attached to Meredith’s death.

“I know that many, many people have suffered a lot because of what he did.”

In September 2007 Meredith was murdered just two months after moving to Perugia in central Italy to study at the city’s university.

Guede was the only person convicted in the end of her murder case.
