How did Meredith Kercher Die?

Meredith Kercher is known for its universities and large student population. She was murdered in her home. On November 1 was a public holiday and the Italians living in the house were away. She was alone in the house when she returned at 9 pm that evening. Knox called Kercher's phone which she kept in her jeans and could always be reached on, but the call was not answered. Knox then called Romanelli one of the two Italian trainee lawyers she and Kercher shared the apartment with. Knox and Sollecito then went to Via Della Pergola 7, and on getting no answer from Kercher unsuccessfully tried to break in the bedroom door, leaving it noticeably damaged. Knox called her mother and was told to contact the police as an emergency. Sollecito called the Carabinieri getting through. Police telecommunications investigators arrived to inquire about an abandoned phone, which was, in fact, Kercher's Italian unit. Romanelli arrived and took over, explaining the situation to the police who were informed about Kercher's English phone, which had been handed in as a result of its ringing when Knox called it. On discovering Kercher's English phone had been found dumped, Romanelli demanded that the policeman force Kercher's bedroom door open, but they did not think the circumstances warranted damaging private property. The door was then kicked in by a friend of Romanelli, and Kercher's body was discovered on the floor. She has been stabbed and died from exsanguination due to neck wounds.
