Edda and Curt say neither of them has spoken to the family of Meredith Kercher. "During interviews, we've tried to express our condolences and the sorrow for the loss of their daughter. I mean, they've experienced the worst phone call a parent could ever have. We still have a chance with Amanda. They don't with their daughter, and until they know that Amanda had nothing to do with it, I don't know how I would feel as a parent receiving that type of call," Curt says. 

Amanda's parents are now looking to the future and trying to plan how they will free their daughter. They are hoping that a document from the jury on why they found her guilty will help their cause. "We're waiting for this motivation document, which is due out possibly as early as next week," Curt says. "From there, that will allow us to draft the appeal and approach how we're going to go about it." 

On the day that Amanda Knox was sentenced, Meredith Kercher's brother, Lyle, made this statement: "Ultimately, we are pleased with the decision, pleased that we've got a decision, but it's not a time for celebration. At the end of the day, we're all gathered here because our sister was brutally murdered and taken away from us."
