The Murder Trial of Casey Anthony
June 30, 2011 11:31am CST
I have to say first of all that I have been following this story from day one when Caylee was missing. I watched Nancy Grace and any other news stories about this case each and every day till the baby was found. Even though a person is suppose to be innocent till proven guilty I can't without good reason give her this due to a child being killed. Yes, it may have been an accident (NOT in the pool for sure) however, I do believe the State is doing a great job in proving their case against Casey Anthony. I saw a video when Casey was first in jail talking to her parents and again just to her father alone on the phone. She told her dad I love you dad and you are the best father in the world. Now here comes Jose Baez using a defense story that Casey was molested and this is why she lies and lies. I know if my dad had ever molested me even once I would not consider my dad the best dad in the world. Also if Casey was molested like the defense is claiming then how could she ever leave her daughter alone with her Father. I know if that was me my daughter would never be alone with my father. Yesterday, while George Anthony was on the stand he had to me a complete breakdown and Casey sat there with not a bit of emotion. That tells me she is a cold hearted sick person. She only cries when its has to do with her and only her. Some people will say maybe she acted that way because she was molested but I have to go back to then why would you ever say on video that Dad I love you and you are the best dad in the world. George brought me to tears because I believe he is so sick over the death of his grandchild and he can't believe he raised a killer that may end up being in jail for life or killed. There are so many holes in the defenses story that its just going to end up that she is found guilty of 1st degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. Then the defense will request an appeal which may or may not be granted. I just still hope and pray that they find justice for Caylee the poor innocent child who did not deserve this. Please let me know what you think and what you believe will be the outcome.

I have followed this story as well, but not as closley as you probably have. Innocent until proven guilty doesn't mean that they aren't guilty, it just means they haven't gone to trial yet! She killed that beautiful baby girl, and since she got arrested has shown remourse only for herself! Look what she did the other day when her mother said I love you after coming off of the stand! That was a baby and I suppose she expected her mother to lie to cover up for her. Her parents would have taken her anyday. She didnt hae to kill her. She is cold hearted. I dont buy the molestation BS either. They are just pulling at anythinf that they can to try to get her off. The guilt is everywhere. I hope the girl rots in prision thinking about what she done every single day, and I hope she makes it to live to 105.

OMG it sure does show how cold hearted she is. Putting her poor parents through this. I have to say though if my daughter killed my grandchid I'm not so sure I could continue to say I love you. The way I love my granddaughter I would go crazy if my daughter killed her and then went around for a month having a good old time. Dancing, drinking and then getting a tatoo of the good life. Thank you so much for sending me the link to Nancy Grace. Have a great day!

I've followed it by hearing news about it on the radio but don't make a special effort to update myself. I think Casey Anthony is nuts and she killed her daughter. They are trying to say she drowned but then why was there duct tape across her poor little mouth? I think the parents made that up to try to save their daughter's life. I had heard that one station covers the trial with and without the jury being in the room. When the jury is there, she is sober and unsmiling. When they aren't, she is joking around and laughing. That tells me she has no feeling for her daughter or her family. I hope she gets life in prison with no parole. Caylee deserves justice.

I agree with you accept for the part about the parents making up the story about the drowning. That is what Casey probably told her lawyers. The parents wouldn't make that up because the defense is trying to make it seem like George Anthony knows what happened. That he was there and got her out of the pool. He denied and said I would have done everything in my power to save my granddaughter. He knows CPR and being an ex cop he would have called 911 and the police for help.

I do not believe she was innocent and think the jury made a huge mistake. I believe she got away with murder and don't even get me started on the whole "She drowned in the pool" crap. If it was an accidental drowning, they would have called the police and said "She was able to climb in the pool and drowned". You don't go off for a month before you report your BABY missing. It just makes me SICK.

I am going to be the first here to diverge from the popular opinion. But first, I feel I must say something. I see a lot of people out there assigning guilt based simply on the horrible nature of the crime. People are judging based on their emotional response to the incident rather than the evidence. I also want to say that right now, she is not guilty of anything. She has not yet been convicted of a crime. Ok, now that that's out of the way. If I were sitting on that jury, I could not render a guilty verdict based on the evidence the prosecution has presented. It raises some suspicion, but, and this is very important, it is not anywhere near the level of what I consider beyond a reasonable doubt. A jury, by law cannot render a guilty verdict based on suspicion. It must be beyond any reasonable doubt. And this is ever more important when we are talking about a capitol murder case. I still have a lot of doubts. A brief (but not complete) list of issues i have is: How did she kill her? Why was there not the evidence of chloroform in the body when the autopsy was done? Why no rags with chloroform found? Why no bottles of chloroform found anywhere? Why no examination for the presence of diatoms in the bone marrow to confirm or disprove drowning?. Why is there such a huge discrepancy in the two separate forensic software analysis of her computer? This last one is very important to me because one of them shows a Myspace post by her boyfriend with a picture of girls at a bar with the caption "win them over with chloroform"...with the very next entry being a search for chloroform. The next entries are entries on self defense and weapons. It is quite reasonable to me to think that once she found out what her boyfriend meant by his post, to be suddenly concerned for her own safety. I know it would creep me right out. I listened very intently (still listening to the rebuttal)to the closing arguments. I do not feel the prosecution made their case beyond reasonable doubt either. The most compelling was the defense's closing arguments. No, I could not convict her based on the case presented. Is Casey Anthony a liar? Yep, we know that for certain, but so is the rest of her family (with the exception of her brother). Am I suspicious? Yes, I am. But as I said earlier, suspicion is not anywhere near enough to convict a person. It must be beyond reasonable doubt. I would likely be the guy on the jury that the rest of the jury hated.
