Perugia, October 31 - The university of Perugia is
holding a mass on Thursday to commemorate the five-year
anniversary of the slaying of British student Meredith Kercher,
who was found murdered on November 2, 2007 in her home in the
Umbrian city where she was studying.
Kercher, 21, was found semi-naked and with her throat cut
in the house she shared in Perugia with a Seattle-born student,
Amanda Knox, and two Italian women.
Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were
acquitted of the 2007 murder at an appeals trial in 2010.
University chaplain Father Elio Bromuri will hold the
ceremony and is scheduled to speak about the student during the
prayers.
''It remains a great wound in citizens' consciences'',
Father Bromuri told ANSA. ''It is a dark spot and a loss that we
are unable to rationalize, to find a logical reason for''.
His word were echoed by Perugia Mayor Wladimiro Boccali,
who said ''the anniversary of the slaying reopens a wound that
had never actually healed''.
''The murder of this girl has left a deep mark on the
conscience and on the collective memory of the town'', Boccali
added.
The city of Perugia and the university two weeks ago
instituted a scholarship fund in honor of Kercher.
