WELCOME HOME: Knox Finally returns to Seattle!

The "welcome home" signs are out around Seattle, and Amanda Knox can now see them in person. Knox flew into Seattle's Sea-Tac Airport this evening, a day after her murder conviction was reversed in Italy, reports the Seattle Post-Intelligencer . "I'm really overwhelmed right now," said Knox, who wept upon seeing supporters and a horde of media awaiting her. "I was looking down from the airplane. It seemed like everything wasn't real." She didn't speak long. "I just, my, my family is the most important thing to me right now, and I just want to go and be with them." 

Her parents spoke briefly before her. "All I can say is, thank you," said Edda Mellas, her mother. "It's been a long four years," said her father, Curt Knox. A backyard barbecue is one of the things on the agenda in the near future. "Just normal things that you would want to do after being in prison for four years for a crime you didn't do," said a spokeswoman for the Friends of Amanda Knox, a group that raised money for her defense.
