goldbergstein on March 05, 2015:

I bet that the parents and casey were in a heated argument and took their eyes off little caylee in the pool and the kid drowned.Then they all felt so guilty they covered it up. But still if my kid drowned I would still call 911 rather than dispose of it like they did.Its quite mind boggling folks.

maryn on March 05, 2013:

well from what we can see ,she is a very loose girl and if it takes 31 days to find a child ,she should be in jail for life ,unless she can bring the child back or explain what truly happened no mom would do thay she isa a liar

Kala Dwarak on July 12, 2011:

Along with Susan Smith, Casey has forever changed the notions of being a mother!

DiamondMan on July 07, 2011:

I'm afraid I have to agree with the juries verdict on Casey Anthony's case. No matter how people may feel on the matter, there simply was not any solid evidence that Casey killed her daughter. However, when looking at this woman's backstory, as with the OJ Simpson trial, you can easily identify a motive. Just look at these photos. Casey had a child to look after but she clearly wanted to live her life like a sorority girl. She hated the responsibility, she hated the image of having a child.

Carol on July 05, 2011:

what happened to the story about Cassy and her mother having a fight on the day they last saw Calee, When Cassy told her mother that she would never see Calee again?

justice for caylee on July 05, 2011:

i cannot believe how they let that B!TC# go free, she has shown no emotions through the whole thing. she only cares about herself! all i am saying is that people are going to go after her, so she better watch her back. she may think shes a celeb, but no one really cares for her, they just want justice, and anyone who associates themselves with her are simply sick people.

Disturbed in America on July 05, 2011:

Only in the AMERICAN Courts are people celebrated for committing MURDER. But God forbid if you should steal a hubcaps!!! This is the same as the O J Simpson trial. If the State really wanted to do what's right, they would perform a hysterectomy on Casey so she would never be able to have any more children to murder. It floors me that our Country will take good parents' children away from them for using discipline. A cop will be at your door before you can count to five hauling those parents to jail and the children are placed in the system when a KILLER doesn't even as much get a slap on the wrist. Something is badly wrong America. This trial has set a precedence to all who are thinking of taking another's life to say, "It's O. K. If Casey Anthony got away with it, so can I". But, one thing for sure, she may have escaped the electric chair in this life, but the real judgement is yet to come. I have lost respect and belief in the American justice. She should have been sentenced in the middle east where there's an eye for eye

D on July 05, 2011:

Not Guilty...BS!!!

Mari on June 09, 2011:

Today they let casey anthony out of the courtroom because she was "sick". Ya, she was sick. Sick of sitting in a courtroom when she could be partying, sick of having to look at the skull of her two year old wishing she'd never been caught. They cut court early because she couldn't take anymore. Too bad she didn't reconsider letting her daughter live when little caylee couldn't take anymore while being murdered.

Vivian petroff on June 08, 2011:

I think that precious baby deserves honesty from her mother please admit you are sick and sorry for what you did let her rest in peace.

Mamasita on June 08, 2011:

Only Casey accessed the search sites for cloroform etc because didn't she HAVE to give her password to her brother, Lee, in the prison visit.

blasterrat on June 08, 2011:

I think She is guilty of premeditated murder. I also think that Her story of being molested may verey well be true. I dont think She should get the death penalty. Not because of sympathy but because life without parole is far more punishing for Her. She deserves to suffer and to lose the very life like the one She took from Caylee.

zippydedoda on June 08, 2011:

Seriousley this case is cut and dried Casey made a choice and it cost her daughter her life. Even without the media attention around this case the facts are stark as bones in a desert. I am a mother of 4 children and i was younger then CA when I had my first and if for one secound I didn't know where my 2 year old was I would FREAK let alone believe for 31 days the 'nanny' had her. If due to my negligence one of my children drowned in the pool because of lack of attention on my behalf I would be the first to call emergency services and the first to say I needed to be jailed for my mistake. When I want to go out for the night with friends I see whos willing to babysit for me and if no ones available then I simpley plan ahead better for next time and enjoy it all the more for waiting.

The simple true is CA wanted the single fun life she believed she was entitled to and yet fearing the looks and comments she would receive if she gave her child to her parents full time from her friends and other women, she was willing to drag that little girl along until she became too much of a hindrence. Its sick and disgracful that our society allows this to happen. WHY didn't any of her friends call child services for this little girl who is taken to late night parties where there is drunks and drugs, Why didn't anyone care enough to go to CAs parents and tell them what they saw happening, dont people know how easy it is for a child to get molested while the mother is passed out from drugs or drink.

WHY didn't CAs parents worry more about how their thieving lying neglectful skank of a daughter would react to a child custody dispute then the welfare of that little innocent child.

and HOW can people call themselves good upstanding citizens or good friends when they see children being treated this way around them and do nothing. I believe if you know something bad is going on such as child being abused, neglected or put in harmful situations and you do nothing say nothing turfn as blind eye then you are as guilty as the perpitrater of the harm.

Seriousley people open your eyes and open your mouths these children require us to protect them because they cannot protect themselves.

jmsgk on June 06, 2011:

Some have said" Aren`t we innocent until proven guilty by a jury of our peers?" Casey`s peers would be "Party Central" so thank God there have been 12 people chosen to do what looks like now, an easy job. I say easy because the evidence leads only in one direction and that`s my opinion. You do not need a motive to prove guilt, it is helpful if you have one, but just evidence is all that is needed. If you add up all and the most damning direct evidence it`s that there is hair and decomposing DNA from Cayley in Casey`s car and I don`t see how the defence team will get around that. All day long that piece of information is going over and over in the minds of the jurers, I would bet on it. I believe this case proves a need for the death penalty, there are some people who should not walk amongst us. They can not be trusted to act humane.

Grammy on June 06, 2011:

I don't know that girl can sit there with that stone face and not feel guilty or show some remorse for what she did to that child. She appear so cold hearted and only concerned at when she will party again. She needs to check her appearance that hair on 6/6/2011 make her look like some freak at least when it is pulled back neatly you can see her mean face. She should just put a stop to this whole thing an admit what she did and save all of this trauma.

Busterpie on June 06, 2011:

Whether she accidentally drowned in the pool or died of an overdose of some unknown -chloroform or whatever-I think the tape was put around her head by Casey as a means to cover her little face because she couldn't deal with looking at what she had done. Much the way a person who rapes and murders someone close to him will cover the body of his victim before he leaves.

futonfraggle (author) on June 04, 2011:

For some reason, I'm stuck on the duct tape (no pun intended). What does everyone make of this?


Busterpie on June 04, 2011:

Seriously? Is this wicked wench going to get off on a technicality? According to Geraldo she wasn't mirandized before all the damning jailhouse videos that looked like they sealed her fate... Unbelievable

kyle newman on June 04, 2011:

and i say , were is the solid evidence that makes her guilty ? i see of none. lets get this straight air samples , get real ; theres no such thing as air samples , and furthermore a picture of the single strand of hair. where is the actual piece of hair ? sounds to me like the proscution is despertly seeking any possible way to find this girl guilty. i was always told that in america you are innocent until proven guilty. well that isn't the case.the proscution and the police have failed to show any real evedinence that she commited this crime.put yourself in her place ; now do you still have you're same oppinion ? i feel casey is innocent and until anybody can show me solid actual nonconclussive facts that she did this , i feel all charges should be dropped.if anything they really should be looking into her father , for he is the one who alledgly found the body and hid it. now somebody explain why that's being overlooked ?

Busterpie on June 04, 2011:

If her lips are moving, she's lying. How anyone could think for one second that there is any chance that she is innocent.?? Wow, denial isn't just a river in Egypt. But she does have to have some mental disorder going on. Who could keep a charade going without cracking this long? And I don't believe the newest stories about her dad and brother molesting her for one minute. I believe Cindy was just a frantic working grandmother who tried to see her granddaughter and kept being railroaded by this evil sick twisted daughter and has tried to believe her from the beginning. But the day she overheard Casey tell Lee that she hadn't seen Caylee in 31 days her whole world imploded.she can't be held accountable for much of what she said or did over the course of events that followed. Natural normal grief-contrasted by her daughter. George couldn't have been "in" on any of the deception. If he had the way they talk about how he cleaned up the car, he would have never left all the leaves and trash under the spare tire cover. I believe that in spite of themselves they tried to support and believe in their daughter. I feel so sorry for George and Cindy and Lee above all. Caylee is in heaven and can't be affected by this psychopath anymore.

Kathy W on June 03, 2011:

I have a couple of questions and wonder if somebody can answer them for me. (1) Where was casey Anthony living at the time of the alleged murder? (2) Who was supporting her?

Steve Casey on June 03, 2011:

I'm just Wondering What happened to Innocent until proven GUILTY?? True or other wise unless you were there you DON"T KNOW, All these opinions are just That! until proven other wise by a jury of our Peers! everyone including the Media are speaking about this case like it was already decided. I feel its tragic Regaudless of how it happened

Yvette on June 02, 2011:

I think she's a sociopath, and they never get better.

cookie 2 on June 02, 2011:

what can i say? where to start? watching the trial and i want to believe she is innocent until proven guilty- but i'm just not seeing anything (including in the opening) that can prove her not guilty.

1. if the father really was in on it and knew and yelled at her to get her to cover it up, why is he calling 911 about gas cans and dead smells?

2. ok, her daughter accidently dies and she dumps her in the woods, i can see shutting it out and turning on the party switch- (living in denial) but once the jig was up, and she was being questioned, she never even came CLOSE to cracking! if you are "shutting something out", that means you feel so bad about it, you cant stand to think about it. she never shed a single tear in that interview with the police at universal after she was forced to admit she didn't work there. that's pretty cold.

that's all i got today- will check in tomorrow when we hear more discovery.

Mewoo on June 01, 2011:

Been following trial pretty close, Can't Help but to KEEP Praying For George & Cindy & Lee. :( No Matter WHAT u know or dont, these people have been aware of the lies their daughter has told in the past & now they not only have to accept the fact that casey HAS GOTTEN TO WHERE SHE IS ** BECAUSE** of HER OWN CHOICES !! NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT THE DEFENSE IS WANTING THE JURY TO BELEIVE.Let alone the fact that they ARE GREIVING ** THe day you become an adult, ** IS THE DAY YOU CAN NO LONGER BLAME YOUR PARENTS FOR YOUR CHOICES IN LIFE... I'm sure it's very hard to accept that, as parents, they apparently did not cover "consequences" with their daughter as she was preparing to become an adult.. DEAR GEORGE, CINDY & LEE, My Prayers ARE WITH YOU. I AM SO SAD and DREADFULLY SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS........ May GOD CONTINUE TO CARRY YOU ALL.....

irishtwin6162 on May 31, 2011:

George Anthony is a retired police officer. He knows the smell of death. He knew something was wrong. He knew they would be in the limelight. If he knew nothing, why didn't the whole family take a lie detector test? George and Cindy lost a granddaughter, Lee lost lost a niece, now they feel they will lose a daughter and a sister for ever. Casey felt she lost her freedom and lifestyle, But her daughter caley lost her life. Duct tape does not cover your breathing in a pool or by accident.

Herlinda on May 31, 2011:

I'm sorry but I don't believe that story about the drowning....It was her car and she abandoned it at Amscot parking lot but before leaving it there left tras h from Tony Lazarro's apt in truck of her car as to take away from the smell of dead body...she told her friend Amy she ran out of gas and left the car in that parking lot and hoped it wouldn't be towed...she was the last one to see Caylee alive....and I believe she maded time to go back and take the body out of the trunk....If you never told the truth before tell it now and die with dignity...it will be the last time you have to do anything right...So make it count for something .....

Freshrose on May 31, 2011:

Casey Anthony is a LIAR, a THIEF, a USER and an ABUSER!!!! Anyone who thinks she's innocent needs to get their heads check with Casey Anthony!!!!That BRAT is GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY!!!!! Good God, I bet someone can write a thick book just listing the LIES Casey have told alone regarding this whole mess.

R Severson on May 31, 2011:

Are legal system is pathetic at best, there has been so much media hipe surrounding this case that no matter how the jury votes, the spot light will always remain on Casey,

we waste bookoo $$$$ on ridiculous things like this, either she gets life behind bars, or she gets the death penalty for her crime, either way she wins, she is in the spot light ! If we give her life, she will live a better quality life than most of our homeless and displaced citizens ever will again, so enough is enough, put it to rest, eliminate any further expense to the tax payers and find a cheap executioner to deal with it, Hell Ill do it if asked, and lets move on down the list of all the others currently enjoying multiple life sentences behind bars, we can't afford to send are needy children to college, but we will furnish a college education to those that have been incarcerated, and build more prisons that resemble a palace or posh hotel like the one built in Chicago under Obama's watchful eye, wake up people, the system we currently use is not an effective one, but it most definitely is a very costly one !

Batman on May 31, 2011:

Casey should fry if only for sitting there and putting her mother through this.

Terri Anne North on May 30, 2011:

A Beloved Child Drowns And Nobody Freaks & Calls 911?

GEEEEZZZEEEE!! No matter what the circumstances....human nature dictates you FREAK!!!!

HalfDozen on May 29, 2011:

It appears that Casey Anthony was on antidepressants when she killed Caylee per her attorney. She had a "history of suicide". Not sure how anyone alive has a history of suicide but these freaks will surely explain that all to us. This is like the mother lode of showing how the for profit mental health industry works b/c no stone will be left unturned in this case down to the details of what skanky outfit Casey was wearing when she picked up her prescription to what brand of pen was used to sign the medication sheet.

Cindy Anthony is on a "new" antidepressant. She and her doctor are experimenting to get the right meds, some make her forget, some make her remember, but they haven't honed in on the one that gives the desired effect of making your lies believeable to other people.

George is obviously not on anything b/c there is no medication that offers that complete a job of zombification. Either he's a real zombie or the recipient of the most effective labotomy ever performed. Seems like "Mommy's Little Helper" is popping up everwhere and doing such a good job at relieving parental stress it's downright scary. Antidepressants will no longer need to carry all those confusing warnings, just one:

Warning: May greatly reduce your number of family members.

bigd on May 26, 2011:

which photos were taken on June 21, 2008? those are the ones we are interested in, because those are the ones she was in a week after her daughter went missing. you have a lot of photos, some where shes brunette, one where shes blond and a bunch that appear to be taken on halloween and others where shes wearing different outfits... Specifically, which were the june 21 party pics?

doris on May 25, 2011:

I beleive caylee may have drown but on casey's watch after george had left the house. I think casey was doing her own thing and not watching caylee,and when she remembered her it was to late.

madison on May 25, 2011:

I maybe wrong but has anyone taking a lie detector test? Last time I checked that's a pretty fair way to find the truth. I haven't heard about anyone taking that test. I mean all kinds of shows on tv have woman and men taking them for cheating and it seems pretty accurate. It also seems weird that the stories keep changing lies change but the truth stays the same. So let's hope that the courts see the story getting twisted and the missing pieces to the puzzel.

Mother of a murdered child on May 24, 2011:

Just like all defense attorneys, Casey's is no different. I truly believe, they should go to jail or prison with their clients, all the smoking guns and mirrors. After today, hearing him just comfirms my opinion more and more. What was Cindy and George parting this weekend about? Lost my son 11 years ago and all I could do was to make it one day at a time. Of course, I would not did not receive any money, blood money as far as I am concerned. They are just as bad as Casey. HAS LITTLE CAYLEE EVER BEEN LAID TO REST/

"He who is without sin among you, let him throw the first stone at her." John 8:1-30

WEKNOWYOUDIDIT on May 23, 2011:

Casey Anthony is a self centered egotistical woman who cares nothing about anyone or anything but herself. ME ME ME ME ME. Caylee was a hinderance and she simply got rid of her. Casey is her mother all over again-a cold fish. On the other hand her father seems to be compassionate unlike the mother or brother. Where are the fathers' police friends standing up for him? This woman needs to spend the rest of her life in a cell-with no mirrors to dwell on what she has done. The strut on her walking into court every day is beyond belief-she will pay for her sins.

mae on May 22, 2011:

Someone in a post above mentioned the fact that the body turned up 6 months after kc had been in jail. They asked the question of who put the body there. I think the whole family knew the baby was dead because kc finally told them and they all deceided to cover for her. I remember a period of time when Lee was not around and it was said he was traveling for his job. I think kc told him where the body was and he and the family waited long enough so cause of death could not be determined, then he moved the body and left it close to the house in an area that he knew had already been searched. Unless kc was driving around with duct tape in the car I believe Lee is who wrapped the tape around Caylee's head to try and make it look like a kidnapping and I believe HE is the one who put the heart sticker on the tape. Remember how strange Lee acted at the memorial service for Caylee, kissing his wrist and talking to CMA which probably meant Caylee. Also remember when he visited kc in jail and asked her "is this like it was before" and she said no. That was probably code talk because they knew they were being recorded. The whole family was in on it and George had a hard time with it which is why he probably wanted to and threatened sucide(sp). If kc had drugged the baby before she knew the drug worked so why would she need to put duct tape around her head this time. Also remember they said the tape was TIGHTLY wrapped around her head. Look at the size of kc then look at the size of Lee. Which one do you think could Tightly wrap the tape around her head.

COCO on May 20, 2011:

I study Criminology and I beg you please, stop saying she "accidently" killed her daugher. If that was the case, she would have called the police. But what this evil moron did? She went clubing, she drunk herself to sleep, she went to parties, she cashed checks that did not belong to her. She had fun. Her daughter was "missing" and she was having fun. That is the most compeling prove that this women have no feeling and is a psycopath.

She killed her daughter, her daughter was an invonvenient child and she just simple got rid of her.

tak on May 20, 2011:

I think the whole family is involved in this terrible crime. Casey "accidently" killed her and her parents know it. My boyfriend thinks the mom did it and Casey is taking the fall for her. They all should be ashamed of themselves. We have a young daughter and I can't imagine partying if she were missing. Ugly coping is Bull!

Kevin C. on May 19, 2011:

I have a psychotic sister and although she hasn't killed anyone that I know of she has spent 44 years manipulating & decieving others. I see my sisters face every time I look at Caycee. I know that even if they put Caycee on the rack or waterboarded her she will never talk. She is a cold fish. This said, everyone deserves a fair trial.

Ric on May 18, 2011:

She has been wrongfully convicted by the media. Especially Nancy Grace. In the U.S., we are allegedly innocent until proven guilty. This case clearly defines that this is no longer true. Florida is the worst state in the country when it comes to fair trials. They are non-existent.

In this case, everyone seems to forget that the body mysteriously appeared six months after Casey was arrested and charged. The excuse was that it was rainy season when the search was conducted. However, Florida law enforcement spends ridiculous amounts of money on training and weapons every year. The dogs they had searching for the body were highly trained for situations just like this one. It highly improbable that the body was missed by the dogs. So, while Casey was incarcerated, who dumped the body?

Furthermore, I have smelled death, and I have also smelled refrigerators that have had rotting food in them for months with no power to them. The stench is very similar. So, who really killed this child?

Sounds like another Jon-Benet case to me.

lindalou4u on May 18, 2011:

Misty....Ugly coping means that by partying and getting drunk was Casey's way of coping with her pain that Caylee was missing. She had to stay numb to deal with it, but geeez she didn't have to look so happy and having such a good time!!!!! I don't buy it.

CODY JARRETT on May 17, 2011:


lindalou4u on May 17, 2011:

Hello everyone. I just found this web site and read all the posts. I have been watching this case from the beginning on Nancy Grace. I used to think that it was an accident using cloroform to put Caylee to sleep while she partied. I thought that one night she might have given her too much and she died. Then I realized why duct tape her face if it really was an accident? Now I think that she put her to sleep and then duct taped her nose and mouth to kill her. She probably died in her sleep sufficating. I hope she didn't wake up. If someone else did it and put Caylee in her trunk they would have to of had a key to open the trunk which would mean it was someone she knew. I remember one of the phone conversations to her mother. She said she couldn't talk about certain things because she was protecting someone. The only way I see that she might be innocent is that she knows who did it but won't tell who. It would have to be a member of her family or her boyfriend at the time or perhaps someone she was partying with. I try to keep an open mind but I do think she is guilty. Does anyone know if the trial with be on court tv? I hope so.

Please explain to me what ugly coping means...I have no clue

dave on May 16, 2011:

Being a cop for 19 yrs. it's not hard to see through people especially this one. I followed this case along with the whole country for a long time. I don't think Ms. Anthony will have a leg to stand on once the trial gets under way. Reagrdless of the outcome she will answer for this crime to higher court one day. If anyone could ever write a book on "not what to do after you commit murder" she should be capable of writing it.

MELODY ROBINSON on May 16, 2011:

Personally I think she should get the death penalty If she didn't want her little girl she could have put her up for adoption. there was no excuse for her to do what she did she is just sick.

cw from ft myers on May 16, 2011:

I haven't paid much attention to this case for the last year or so but my interest is revving up again now that a jury is being seated. I always try to play "Judge Judy" and ask what makes sense. My daughter and grandchildren live with me. If I didn't see them for 3 days let alone 30 days, I'd be asking questions! No, make that 3 hours!! Doesn't make sense on the grandparents part. I think they also know what really happened. I just hope they weren't involved and letting Casey take the fall. Bottom line, I think that whole family knows what happened to that little girl. May God have mercy on their souls.

fran on May 15, 2011:

if you watch all of casey jailhouse video, i have never heard her say to george or cindy, i love my baby and i would never in my life do anything to harm her...everything was about herself not caylee ...

am from uk and have researched this case extensivly my opinion is shes guilty,also this babysitter had been[supposably] whatching her 4 months! who actually had her those times? i reckon she was drugging her and leaving her in the trunk 4 months and got complacent eventually killing her.

OMG on May 13, 2011:

Unknown you hit the nail on the head, I dont think she intendtionally killed her daughter but accident OD her to sleep with coloform. Poor Caylee died in her sleep in the car while her mother was in the bar partying then throwing up. Casy will pay the rest of her life for this weather she gets life in prison or found innocent for loss of her daughter GOD WILLING! Bad things happen to people that act bad!

granaw24 on May 12, 2011:

Well Debbie- it won't be up to the judge. The jury will be who decides Casey's fate. We can only hope that the judge will be able to seat a jury of responsible, reasonable, law abiding citizens with enough intellignce to interpert the evidence and return a "reasonable" verdict, a verdict that will find justice for little Kaylee.

@Futy- I did take his remark as tounge in cheek at the defense regarding their complaint that there were not enough "ethniticities" represented in the "pools". I see your point and I had the same thoughts as to them actually needing the money and not having much information regarding the case, but I don't think they can "really" just pull peaople in like that--they have to come up on a registar to be summoned-usually run by query around various criteria. All computerized these days...someone keys some specific ranges, presses a button or two... and Poof! a List appears and a summons goes in the mail....

DEBBIE S. on May 12, 2011:

Everyone, Please Pray to GOD that this Judge has some sense about him and locks her up FOREVER, and then she can spend the rest of her miserable life thinking about killing that beautiful innocent little girl. You could burn her to the stake and it wouldn't be punishment enough for her and what she did......

alabamamom on May 12, 2011:

how can someone go one day without hearing or seeing their 2 yr old child everyday i would want to know where my baby is and who has my baby that is a bunch of lies that she told about a nanny and the person had no idea who she was ms anthony just need to tell the truth about her baby and stop the crocodile tears she didn't cry while the baby was missing for 31 days why cry now. My guess that shes going to be guilty and not see the light of day anymore. I don't feel sorry for her at all only God bless that little girl

futonfraggle (author) on May 11, 2011:

Yeah, I'm waiting for that "jaw dropping" explanation, too. "It will all make sense," Baez said. I have my doubts, and I'm sure you do, too!

Did you take Judge Perry's remark as tongue-in-cheek? I thought he was serious. It sounds bizarre, but homeless people have all the time in the world, need the income and can't afford cable TV, cell phones or Internet access. Other than the newspapers they line their shoes with, they're pretty much sheltered from everything going on with this case.

granaw24 on May 11, 2011:

we must remember the charge that is made to any jury---a jury only has to find someone guilty beyond a "reasonable" doubt. If people will apply reason (which is rarer and rarer I must admit) I think there will be a guilty verdict---there is an awful lot of circumstantial evidence that when you look at in order and in it's whole... it will not be "reasonable" for the jury to return a verdict of "not guilty"...in my opinion anyway! Of course, we have not seen the so called "jaw dropping" explination for all this that Jose is supposed to provide during the first minute of his opening argument! Can't Wait!

granaw24 on May 11, 2011:

Yes Futon, I did hear about the juror that is listed as a defense witness... a Texas Equasearch volunteer that also protested at the Anthony home and had some sort of tiff with George... this will be a roller coaster ride I have a feeling but I fear Judge Belvin's comment today about seeing how many ppl at the homeless shelter have Fla driver's license will come back to haunt him... he needs to be carefull with his tongue in cheek remarks....

futonfraggle (author) on May 11, 2011:

Time sure flies, eh, Granaw? Judge Belvin Perry is having the time of his life with jury selection. Did you hear a potential juror was also listed as a witness? http://bit.ly/mSIadz

I don't know, I'd hate to be on that jury. $30 a day? Can't watch TV or read the news? Avoid social network websites? No thanks. Sounds like hell to me.

granaw24 on May 11, 2011:

well well well, here we are some 2 and 1/2 years later and about to select a jury! going to be tough to get 20 ppl that both sides can agree on I would think...honestly..don't you think anyone professing that two months sequestered service in Orlando with only limited and supervised visitation would not be any sort of hardship is a little suspect...and I suspect they WANT to be on that jury...for whatever reason.

futonfraggle (author) on May 10, 2011:

Stacey, I agree. But look at this as if you were a member of a jury.

She borrowed a shovel: If no DNA is found on the shovel, the information is worthless.

She didn't report her kid missing, then she said Zanny the Nanny took her: Linda Kenney-Baden told 48 hours that Casey Anthony fabricated the story about the nanny. I mean, we already knew this, but a former member of her defense team stated this on national TV. So, she could say, she sold her, she lost her, she could say anything.

Diaries, photos, Myspace blogs, text messages: She partied while her kid was missing. This shows that she had no concern about the whereabouts of her child. It still doesn't prove she stuck duct tape over Caylee's mouth and dumped her in a lot.

Air samples: The air samples may prove there were traces of chloroform and human decomposition in the trunk. So, she drove the car around with a dead body in the trunk. Can prosecutors prove that she knew there was a body in the trunk? Can they prove that she put it there?

So, with all of this information, we still can't put blood on Casey Anthony's hands. Prosecutors must prove Casey Anthony killed Caylee. This is the part that enrages people (like me); circumstantial evidence might not be enough to nail her for murdering her child.

Staceyd116 on May 10, 2011:

You can't surpass the evidence. It is right before you. Trust me, she is GUILTY AS SIN!!! She knows what she is doing. She is manipulating everyone and acting like a child, not a mature mother that just lost her daughter.

futonfraggle (author) on May 10, 2011:

UCantBeSerious: Yes, she's a liar and a thief. Yes, she partied while her daughter was missing. If the results from the air sample test prove that human decomposition was in the trunk, then yes, there was a dead body in the trunk. But it will be interesting to see how prosecutors will *prove* Casey committed the crime. For example, she could say someone stuffed the baby in the trunk and dumped her. Prosecutors need something solid to tie Casey to the crime. Do I think she did it? Sure. But my opinion doesn't matter. If I was on the jury, and someone's life was in my hands, I'd want solid proof of that person's guilt. Opinions mean very little -- innocent until proven guilty. Circumstantial evidence (and there's TONS of it) isn't going to cut it in this case, IMO.

Disappointed with the Media: I just want to say that I did have additional party photos on here (that were taken at the time Caylee was missing) but I had to take them down. Hubpages flagged my hub because some of the pics were too risque (don't ask me). Those are the pics that were shown on shows such as Nancy Grace, Greta, etc. Here's one: http://www.wesh.com/image/19104993/detail.html (Again, she doesn't look too concerned about her daughter); another shows Casey on a pole.

julia on May 09, 2011:

She is guilty, has been since the start of all her lies.

Its an interesting case and I hope Justice will be served or little Caylee. I cant beioeve this case is costing tax payers more than the OJ trial.

Disappointed with the Media on April 22, 2011:

Add this to my other comment. Actually NONE of these photos were from the time period when Caylee was missing. The only one I originally thought was, was the flag picture. Which was from the "anything but clothes" party and that occurred in May, 2008.

Disappointed in the Media on April 22, 2011:

Only one of the photos shown above are from the time period in which Caylee was missing. Do reporters even have to do their homework anymore? Also, I am so sure that all of the other commenters on here NEVER partied in their early twenties. All of you people disgust me, so ready to lynch someone before hearing unbiasly ALL the evidence. Shame on any one of you who feel they are superior enough to throw stones. If she is guilty, she only deserves to be judged by one and she will.

unknown on April 20, 2011:

I still think Casey did not intend to kill her daughter, but put her to sleep so she can go have a good time. But, it got away from her and daughter died. Instead of reporting, she just put in the back of her mind and PARTY'D. If her mom had never showed up, she would have continued till who knows when. Because of this, she is going to have to pay for little Caylee. May she rest in peace.

Zanny on April 19, 2011:

Hey Casey you looking for me??? You can find me here on death row, i'm sure i'll see ya soon........

zippydedoda on April 09, 2011:

I have finished reading the book on the casey anthony case and I have come to some conclusions of my own.

1. I think CA is a pathological liar as well as extreamly self absorbed, if she felt as any other person did she would admit the truth of what she did to her daughter, but she still feels a sense of superiority at having the full knowledge of the events of what she did.

2. I think she is a sociopath and has no real comprehension on why everyone is so upset, in her mind Caylee was her daughter to do with as she pleased.

3. I think irrgadless of what age she had the child she would still have reacted the same way to her , the child was a hassle, impeading on her social and love life, yet the child served a purpose to her too, people saw her in a way she wanted them to offering sympathy on her difficulties being a single mother with a chaotic family life, also as a money earner her family, friends, and charities etc would give her money that without her child she wouldn't have got.

4. I think CAs lies about her job, boyfriends, family problems etc served a purpose of helping her to have her own way, as a stop gap to keep doing what she wanted I dont believe she felt any regrets for her lies no matter how big or how small otherwise there would have been signs of remorse such as trying to get a job trying to pay back money borrowed or stolen staying home to raise her daughter and make things up to her family.

5. I think her parents do have a large responsibility for how CA is they enabled her to steal to lie to be a bad parent and shirk her responsibilities in life, and they are still doing this in the protesting CAs innocence, really unless they are of low inteligence CAs story would not ring true at all and believing her story as truth after such a long time of everything else that passed her lips was a lie, would really be pushing the parcel.

5. I think CAs parents know she is responsible for her childs death but if they back down in their stance it means they have to face the reality of their own lives their own failings and own up to their own culpibility in their daughters bad behaviour.

6. I am not saying that they are responsible for the childs death and I belive their grief would be ten fold anything I can imagine but they are culpable of allowing their daughter to get away with her acts lying, stealing etc that lead CA to believe she could get away with anything, anytime with anyone.

I think the only way to have CA tell the truth is to remove her parents support for them to call her on her lies and turn from her until she starts breaking, plus let CA cop alot of beatings in prision to have her feeling alone and isolated and the only way allowed out of the fear and lonliness is to start telling the truth until then treat EVERYTHING she says as a lie. Train her as you would a child.

Rockport Robin on March 23, 2011:

As far as I am concerned, I find absolutely no evidence of innocence on her behalf. Most damning in my eyes are the statements her parents made concerning the "odor" in her car. This young woman needs to step up and take responsibility for her actions. I do believe that it was an accident, probably just trying to get her to sleep early so she could party. Nice to know there are lawyers who will defend someone so obviously guilty.

LovingMotherOf3 on January 22, 2011:

Casey deserves death. Who could kill their own child?

danisourx3 on January 15, 2011:

I don't think she did it !

Bill fm. Florida on January 03, 2011:

I,ve followed this case from day one, I am 65 and cryed about Calee every time i see her pics, I have quite a few grandchildren of my own. If one of my children were in caseys place I would want them to spend the rest of there lives in Prison without the possibality of parol to think of the thing they did.

dandydon53 on December 28, 2010:

this woman will get what she brought upon herself then claim to be a victim . this in my opinion is the worst of the worst in america .

Lindsay on December 06, 2010:

I'm just not sure who's more disturbed casey for what she did to her own daughter or her parent's for vigilantly protecting her when they know deep down that she brutally murdered their grand daughter!!! How do you choose to protect and defend the adult over the innocent in the center of all of this? their grand daughter caylee???!!! It's appauling to me that a family could be this twisted! their main mission since confronting Casey has been to defend her even while knowing in their hearts that she murdered her own daughter! I understand that they still love their daughter but how do they feel that defending her will help the situation at all? they are just clinging onto their sick daughter because they knew their grand daughter was dead LONG BEFORE ANYONE NOTIFIED THEM OF THEIR GRAND DAUGHTER'S REMAINS BEING FOUND!!!! If they really cared for their grand daughter more than their selfish ways they would admit to themselves and others that she murdered little Caylee and that murderers deserve to be EXACTLY where their daughter is today! IN JAIL!!!!

Sharon Lownie on October 14, 2010:

How anyone, with any common sense at all, can defend this self centered idiot, is beyond my comprehension. As for those of you who think this lunatic is beautiful, give your head a shake, she is far from beautiful, one could very easily see her as being a biker broad.

I am not here to describe Casey's looks, or lack thereof; but to call for justice for that beautiful little girl, Kaylee. For over a year, I listened to Nancy Grace, and all the evidence given for and against this murdering mother; she is very fortunate that there are laws to protect her; and she should be thanking Almighty God for protecting her, this long. I do know her day of reckoning is coming, when she will stand before her Creator, and answer, why she ended the life of the Gift she received from God; for when all is said and done, that is exactly what Kaylee was, a gift from God.

As for George and Cindy, there is absolutely no excuse for their actions. For parents/grandparents to say they don't want to lose their daughter, the one they know in their heart of hearts, took the life of their grand daughter, is beyond belief. In my opinion, they are just as guilty as Casey; they protected her throughout this entire circus; showing exactly why this girl is as mixed up as she is. Her behaviors are learned behaviors, and her teachers were her parents; as for Casey's brother, he too is a perfect example; of the lessons he has not been taught, by his parents. This family is far beyond being "dysfunctional"; there are some real signs of severe mental problems, with every family member. And "NO", I am not suggesting Casey should be allowed a defense of mental incapacity; at this stage of her life, Casey is just pure evil, and she has been doted on and allowed to do as she wished for far too many years; all at the expense of Kaylee's life.

I pray the jury selected will have no problems handing out the death penalty for Casey Anthony; and that the Florida Law Society, will have no problems carrying out that sentence.

UCantBeSerious on August 25, 2010:

Casey may or may not be guilty? Huh? Ive seen men and women both get convicted with less or no evidence much less a body on some occasions. Ive seen people get convicted based on a STRICKLY so called "eyewitness" testimony of a known admitted LIAR, who actually pulled the trigger himself, killing the victim then stated he was told to do it, testified against the man, got 35 yrs but the death penalty was on the table at first and guess who got the death penalty? The guy whom he testified against! And he testified he shot the kid! Lets see, having the death penalty is quite the motive to tell yet another lie and its persons here saying "if" Casey Anthony is guilty? Count up the reasons why she ISN'T and then count up the reasons why she IS! No need, I'll do it for U.

Reasons Id vote guilty:

Not reporting her own child "missing" (duh)

Lab test results POSITIVE for decomposition of human

remains in her trunk.

Phantom Nanny

Fake Job

Lie after lie after lie after lie

And the list of reasons goes on and on....

nana2686 on August 06, 2010:

Casey Anthony is another cold Scott Peterson. I think soemthing happened between mother and daughter as those two seem to have a love/hate relationship. What is so terrible about it all is that this is about the loss of a beautiful little girl whose life was taken tragically; and now it has become about a woman who will probally never acknowledge the truth out loud. As a grandmother I can say you always love your children no matter what; but to close your eyes to the truth against your own granddaughter is just so unacceptable to me. How can a grandmother not want to know the truth and instead stick your head in the sand. I know the pain would be unbearable but to lie to ones self and to pretend otherwise dishonors that little child's memory. She so deserved better from her family that she got. God bless her.

barbara turner on July 23, 2010:

You have to know in their heart of hearts they know she is guilty but they can't admit it even to themselves.

mrlhow on July 16, 2010:

I still say that mom knows a whole lot more than she is letting on.She seems to be a very manipulative individual.

Bowsey on June 29, 2010:

Time has passed since these comments were posted. Please allow mw to add my three cents.....I think it is unfair to judge Cindy and George Anthony because their every com ment and reaction since little Caylee "disappeared" has been caught by and dissected by the media. I could not withstand such scrutiny and I cannot for certain say that under the circumstances I would not act out of shock and with denial. Maybe a part of them knows that their daughter is capable of extreme behavior but murder?

I feel sorry for them. Second, I take issue to the idiotic men sending Casey money for her jail commissary.

She can indulge in a few luxuries that should be limited.

Is she is general population yet in jail? Finally, I would absolutely not be surprised if Casey gets off on murder charges because our legal system sometimes does not work. Then she will design a line of club clothes, appear on dancing with the stars and host a reality show because that's how it is in America, folks.

reds on June 24, 2010:

Shes innocent. NOT been proved guilty. People who write this shit without knowing what the verdict will be are scum

Mary on May 12, 2010:

I am tired of mothers who kill their children getting away with it. I think she is guilty juat as I did from the beginning. A child is a gift from God and should be cherished. So many people would have thanked God to have had such an adorable child. Let justice be done.

carol on May 10, 2010:

Yes I think Casey anthony derserves the death penalty

Why did she wait 31 days to report her daughter missing and lieing to the cops. And George and Cindy both said that it smells like a dead body in her car. They should know what it smells like because Cindy is a nurse and George being a cop. What about the gas cans and the 911 call that Cindy made. right there you have enough prove. If it was somebody else they would come in. So Casey is no better then anybody else. Let's think of Poor Caylee that never got a chance in life because of her mother. She could still be a good mother when she was younger But then wanted to get rid of her after.

JVMFan on March 18, 2010:

I heard prosecutors discovered 50 mystery letters from Casey Anthony to another woman behind bars. Jane Velez-Mitchell will cover it tonight on her show "Issues" (Headline News Channel)

George on December 15, 2009:

In all of this I have yet to shown any incriminating evidence and I have not even heard a fraction of the actual evidence. I say let her have her day in court. Remember she is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. A court of her peers will decide this not the media.

norris1208 on December 12, 2009:

the anthony's are continuously defending casey and get defensive when anyone asks them questions or make statements about her killing her daughter. do they forget that THEY are the reason she has fingers pointed at her? They called the police. they reported her trunk and granddaughter missing.

CherylL on October 05, 2009:

The (circumstantial though it is) evidence against Casey Anthony is OVERWHELMING in this case. It is amazing to me that her family can bury their heads in the sand they way they are, and try to claim she is innocent. (IF she were, some shred of evidence indicating that WOULD have surfaced). Yes, I understand it is hard to have to admit that your daughter did something so HORRENDOUS. But Caylee's memory deserves justice, because she was a baby, she was totally incapable of defending herself against the adult (her MOTHER) who should have been PROTECTING HER!!! It is much healthier and better all the way around if people just face facts and deal with them, instead of trying to live in denial.

Of course, Casey would rather live in denial because she doesn't want to die.

But then, neither did Caylee.

SadMom on August 09, 2009:

Well, I guess I've been out of the loop since not much has been going on lately. But, I'm looking forward to the case beginning in October. At least that's when I last heard it would start. I'm definitely surprised to hear that a book has been written already too. But, just think about it.....now she can also write a book two after the trial. That means twice the profits for her. I just hope that Casey won't profit one cent from anything....books or movies.

Wednesday Morning on July 15, 2009:

Futy, that's interesting about the width of the duct tape. I hadn't even considered that even 1 strip of tape would have covered both her nose & mouth. Now that you mention it, it seems so excessive to use multiple pieces of duct tape. A fit of rage? A "oh this'll shut you up" tantrum?

futonfraggle (author) on June 19, 2009:

Apparently the cloth letters were appliqués from a shirt that read, "Big Trouble Comes Small."

SEVERAL layers of duct tape were stretched across the mouth (and possibly the nose)--and duct tape was still attached to scalp hairs. Although bones were scattered all over the wooded lot--the skull was intact. In other words, the duct tape held the mandible to the skull.

Now, I think it's important to note that standard duct tape is 1 7/8 inches wide, while some companies, like 3M, manufacture heavy-duty duct tape that is 2 inches wide. I just used a tape measure to measure from the tip of my chin to the tip of my nose--it's exactly 3 inches. Since a two-year-old child's face is much smaller than mine, I think it's safe to assume that the duct tape covered Caylee's nose, too. I strongly believe she was suffocated.

If a person's mouth and nose are obstructed, unconsciousness can occur within 1 minute. About 7 minutes of oxygen deprivation causes death of the cerebral cortex and presumably themedulla oblongata, which controls breathing and heart action.

We'll never know if "burking" (where the mouth or nose are obstructed and someone sits on the chest to prevent the diaphragm from moving up and down) took place; there's no tissue to examine. Normally, when burking is the cause of death, the body exhibits bruises, abrasions, and broken blood vessels in the eyes.

futonfraggle (author) on June 19, 2009:

Caylee Anthony's autopsy results have been released. There are a lot of new findings in Caylee Anthony's autopsy results, including:

No drugs in Caylee's system (what was the chloroform used for?)

And get this: Two sets of cloth letters were found intermingled with plant material and debris. Garavaglia said the first set spelled "big" and the second group appeared to spell "trouble."


The cause of Caylee's death is listed as "homicide by undetermined means."

Completely skeletonized remains

Duct tape over mouth

This case just gets weirder and weirder...

Read Caylee Anthony's autopsy report, here:


Marilyn on May 29, 2009:

Re:Pictures. I do agree many have pictures they would be embarrassed about. BUT, I do doubt that the pictures would have been taken during a time just after their daughter had been kidnapped. According to sources, not all, but many of those pictures were taken during the time when Caylee was missing. I don't buy the "ugly coping."

futonfraggle (author) on May 29, 2009:

Casey Anthony in the news today:

Andrea Lyon, a death-penalty expert, joins Casey Anthony defense. Lyon does not expect Casey Anthony's trial to start in October, as expected, because she believes more time will be needed to prepare the case.

Regarding the video of Casey Anthony's reaction to a child's remains being found in a wooded area, Judge Stan Strickland said he wanted to provide the media an opportunity to argue why the video should be public record. The decision has been delayed.
