Amanda Knox interview: 25-year-old talks prison, new life in magazine and TV interviews

As Amanda Knox waits to see if she will be re-tried for murder, she remains a free woman.

Until recently, she has remained silent about her years in an Italian prison, but now, she is telling her side of the story.

In a glossy "People" magazine rollout timed to the release of her new book, "Waiting to be Heard", Knox breaks her silence.

She's also the focus of a Tuesday primetime special on ABC, in an interview the world has been waiting to hear.

Watch the exclusive television interview TUESDAY at 9 p.m. on ABC15.

"She's very thoughtful, articulate, emotional," said "People" executive editor Betsy Gleick.

In the recently out magazine, the 25-year-old speaks candidly about life in prison, even admitting to thoughts of suicide.

"She talked about, you know, would you do it in the shower and there's this little window in the shower and it would be all fogged up so nobody could see her and she would bleed to death and it would be a peaceful death," described Gleick.

Knox -- then a college exchange student in Italy -- spent nearly four years in prison after she and her Italian boyfriend were convicted of murdering Meredith Kercher, Knox's then roommate.

Details emerged of a kinky sex game gone wrong, and Knox was dubbed a femme fatale.

Then, two years later, following a dramatic turn of events involving bad evidence, the convictions were overturned.

"I'm not a murderer," Knox candidly told "People". She also gives an update on her new life

"She's studying in Seattle, she has a boyfriend, she's really, really close to her family," Gleick said.

But returning to regular life has presented its challenges.

Knox says she had trouble using her iPhone and had no idea what Twitter was.
