If Casey Anthony Writes A Book, Will You Read It?

Casey Anthony has been a free woman for about a week now. And while no one seems to have any idea where she actually is—last we heard, she was reportedly getting reconstructive surgery done to alter her look, with her lawyers footing the bill—one thing is clear: she has the chance to be everywhere over the course of the next year or so.

There’s been talk about a movie based on her legal proceedings, a reality TV show about her life after the trial, and a host of other things that would allow her to cash in on her notoriety now she’s out of the slammer. But the most likely scenario right now sees Anthony writing a book at sometime in the near future about her life, her daughter Caylee‘s life, and life as she knows it now that she’s being viewed as the woman who literally got away with murder.

Business-wise, it makes plenty of sense for her to go down this route. Anthony has been a hot topic for the last few weeks and it seems everyone wants to know more about how she’s coped with aftermath of her murder trial. They want to know how she wakes up and looks at herself in the mirror every day because, whether she actually committed the heinous crime she was accused of committing or not, she still has to deal with the fact that her only daughter is dead. They also want to know more about her relationship with her parents and get her reaction to the not guilty verdict that came back in her favor earlier this month.

But, regardless of how controversial Anthony is or how much people seem to want to know more about her, there’s still a question that needs to be asked: Would you read a book by Casey Anthony, if she decided to write it? It’s a question a lot of other business-minded folks are asking themselves right now, as they try and decide whether Anthony really deserves a reality TV show, a slew of interviews and other opportunities in light of how the trial played out.

People are obviously interested in her. But, at the same time, are they willing to spend their hard-earned money to line the pockets of a woman who clearly played some role in the death of her daughter? Do they have the patience to sit through a book about a woman they clearly despise? And, can they try and take a look at things from Casey Anthony’s point of view—or have they already decided they don’t care what she has to say?

For my money, I’m buying a book about someone who’s actually making a difference in the world, not someone who lucked out at the hands of a jury and is now going to try and make a quick buck off her 15 minutes of fame. I’m also not watching any reality TV shows starring Anthony, checking out any interviews with her, or paying any attention to her from here on out.

If you’ve put up a Facebook status railing her for her actions, sent out a tweet calling her trial a sham or said anything derogatory about her to anyone, I suggest you do the same. Because while she has the potential to be a millionaire thanks to the unfortunate death of Caylee, it’s only potential at this point. Her fame and fortune really depends on our interest in her, her case, and everything she wants to do with her life now that it’s over. We literally have her future in the palm of our hands.

And if we all dislike her as much as we say we do, it’s time to use—or rather, not use—our dollars to show our lack of support for Anthony. It’s time to show our displeasure with her by refusing to indulge in her story anymore and by ignoring her from here on out. It’s time to stop her lucky streak and pay homage to young Caylee by putting our purses and wallets away when it comes to Anthony-related stories and products.

And we can all start by not reading the book that we know she’s got coming sometime soon. Because she may have chance to be everywhere over the course of the next year or so…but only if we let her. And that’s the last thing that we want to do right now, right?

    Why Casey Anthony Was Not Guilty
    ———————————

    The child died as a result of a drowning accident.

    Cindy told co-workers on June 16, 2008, the same day that Caylee drowned, that she felt somebody was swimming in her pool. She probably had a morbid feeling that she forgot to remove the pool ladder the night before. She failed, as the phone records showed, to call her husband that same day to find out whether the ladder was removed or not.

    All the forensic pieces of evidence that the prosecution could ever think of were contradictory, inconclusive, and non-compelling.

    Mr. Ashton admitted in an interview that drowning is the only shred of evidence available in this case, although non-compelling, he said. Photographs and videos demonstrated that Caylee was capable of opening the door leading to the pool.

    George, being an ex-detective, wanted to help his distraught daughter with all his might. He realized that anything Casey says to the police about the drowning incident could incriminate her for aggravated manslaughter, which carries a maximum sentence of 30 years’ imprisonment, according to Florida law.

    George put a duct tape on the child’s mouth to stage a kidnap-murder case. Then he disposed of the body in a wooded area close to home.

    Under current Florida law, failing to report a missing child or death of a child is a misdemeanor. That’s why Casey, as her father probably advised her, decided not to report her child’s death for a whole month, until her mother reported it.

    As to lying to law enforcement officers, that was triggered by Casey’s fear of incrimination for aggravated manslaughter of a child. She was scared, confused, and incoherent in her statements to law enforcement officers.

    As to partying, shopping, tattooing, and so on, Casey probably took drugs to mask the reality of her tragedy, and she probably thought that by doing so, she would become immune from police suspicions.

    “until her mother reported it”: should read, “until her mother reported a missing child.”

    Goodbye everyone. Case closed! I will not be posting here any more.

    I am sure many people who hate Casey (and wish that she is run over by a bus) will be glad I left this forum.

    If Gary (or anyone else) wishes to troll, go ahead if that would help to let off some steam inside you.

    For Gary, I suggest that you pick a different topic you are familiar with where trolling could be more self-rewarding for you.

    Cheers!!!

    Well I am sad to see Malik go, as he did have some interesting things to say, even if I did not agree with all of it. Some was food for thought.

  • montana272 says:

    Malik, I guess you can say, if you want that I am Immature. You have been calling many of us Immature. I am 51 years old, with four grown children. I have two grandchildren with another one on the way. Maybe I am stuck in immaturity since I was horribly abused as a child, mentally physically and sexually assaulted. I think for those of us that have been abused we may seem to some to be stuck in immaturity, since we never got to be a child to begin with. But, I am so thankful that as immature as I maybe to you, I have never lost one of my babies to death and then proceeded to celebrate in a gleeful manner. Despite my tragic back ground, the only thing I maybe guilty of is trying desperately to get justice for children that did not survive child abuse, I like did.

  • Mila says:

    So what Malik is saying is that Caylee drowned in the pool and the first thang an afraid mother as Casey does is duck tape the child, put chloroform on her, place her in a plastic bag and throw her out like the child is trash instead of a human being?? Is that your theory? If you would toss that one up in Court I would just take that theory down with the question: right, so even your theory is that Casey is a selfish and psychotic person? Instead of calling 911 for an ambulance, you know what any concerd person would do, she took chloroform out?

    I don’t buy it … Someone who calls mommy and says she is with Jeff and Zachery out of town visiting his cancer dying mommy who had a last wish: getting married while she was with Tony or Amy is kinda disturbed.
    Shouldn’t Jeff first have a son called Zachery and have a mother with an illness?
    I bet if someone calls Jeff/Jeffrey Hopkins, u know the name she gave cops, he will tell you he doesn’t have a mom who has cancer, Lord knows we already know he doesn’t have a son called Zachery.

    She was having a good time the whole month of june 2008 and half of july 2008 untill her parents had to hunt her down !! You know what happened the night Cynthia confronted Casey?

    She took her down to the police station and as they were there it had a closed sign so she called 911. During that call Cynthia wanted to report Casey for grand theft auto and stealing money. As Cynthia was talking to the officer on the phone, she had a discussion with Casey as well. Cynthia said: I am not gonna give you another day, Casey. I already gave you a month !!

    A month !! And doesn’t strike people weird that Caylee died about a month before?
    Casey stole money and Cynthia said she would throw Casey out of the house and take custody of Caylee.
    Casey was so upset with the fight that she took it out on Caylee. One little baby cry can set a psychopath off …

    Again, I am not waiting for a book, but as soon as cops would publish her statements I would buy it …
    In each and every one you detect lies.

    To Montana272:
    I am sorry to read about your past. I guess, the once who got hurted the most, love the most… Harming a fly would even be unbareble.

    Maybe you can understand why I find it unlikely that Casey got abused by her father and brother. No one with a trauma like that would live with their parents or brother in the same house but would get out !!
    And if Casey truly got abused by George and Lee Anthony she would never leave Caylee alone with them, but she did… Because she knew they would never harm her in any way.
    George Anthony did his best to provide for his family… He worked his ass off, took care of all the bills regarding Casey and Caylee….
    Gave them food, a roof over their head… and as a thank you Casey lied to the planet that George and Lee abused her.

    I live in Europe and to tell you the truth: if you followed the case … you would know Casey lied about that fact. I find George and Lee very sad and the way Baez tried to take George down really hurted as I watched it …
    George is a traumatized man, …… and Baez did not even treat him like a grandfather who lost his grandchild.
    Baez was asking question regarding the media but to tell you the truth:
    I think Baez is the media addict in this case and not George who tried to place a “missing child” under attention in the hope someone would see Caylee.

    The real victims in this case are Caylee, Cynthia, George and Lee.

  • montana272 says:

    “It has taken a while for Baez to establish himself as a defense lawyer. Despite graduating from law school in 1997, the Navy veteran was denied admission to the Florida bar for eight years until 2005.

    An order by the Supreme Court of Florida states that he was denied admission because of his failure to pay child support to his ex-wife and secure life and health insurance for his teenage daughter. It states that he had previously declared bankruptcy, written bad checks and defaulted on student loans, the court said.

    The Florida Supreme Court said his financial mishaps coupled with failure to pay child support “show a lack of respect for the rights of others and a total lack of respect for the legal system, which is absolutely inconsistent with the character and fitness qualities required of those seeking to be afforded the highest position of trust and confidence recognized by our system of law.”

    Baez is a good attorney.

    You just copy and paste what’s already on the Internet. Try to express your own opinion. This forum is not intended for copy and paste!

  • Mila says:

    Never knew that about Baez…
    Question though: who was Caylee’s father? Maybe Dr. Jays can talk to some old students who Casey was dating and write a book about:

    Caylee’s father revealed… I still wonder because she lied a lot about the father.

  • willem says:

    To: Mila

    Now that you know something about Baez, what difference does it make? He was not a crook. Almost everyone experiences financial hardships. His failure to pay child support for his ex-wife, his failure to secure life and health insurance for his teenage daughter, his declaring personal bankruptcy in the past, his writing NSF checks, his defaulting on student loans are all signs of financial difficulties which most middle class people experience at least once in their lives. It does not “…show a lack of respect for the rights of others and a total lack of respect for the legal system…” as the stupid Florida Supreme Court decided.

  • montana272 says:

    Willem, I did not realize you were the Forum Police. If you are then you should be equal to all of us here and not just mention the copy and paste to me, which others have done on here as well. But of course they share your views so why would you?
    I worked two jobs to make sure my kids were taken care of as I am sure jose COULD have done if he cared. I get you, let Jose’s x wife bust her butt to take care of their child and let Jose be excused, I get you loud and clear.

  • willem says:

    To: montana272
    You were lucky to find two jobs. Baez maybe couldn’t find one.

  • Mila says:

    To Willem,

    I am not here to judge … not about Casey, a potential book or Baez.
    I just stated that I read some background info about Baez I did not know.

    The truth is: I was just hoping and searching the net for some police think-work about what could have happened to Caylee.
    I thought maybe someone would know how a book would go or take facts and place them in a certain order.

    I just wonder: what happened to Caylee, what was Casey’s psychological state of mind after she got busted by her mother Cynthia for stealing money and who is Caylee’s father?

    I was just searching for facts, that’s all

  • willem says:

    To: Mila

    Casey (or someone on her behalf) can write in the book any thing she wants. She can say she killed Caylee by chloroform to get rid of her, and she won’t be tried again. She can also say her father killed her, and her father will not be arrested. I doubt if she would confess in the book that she killed her, for safety reasons. She could probably stick to the drowning story.

  • willem says:

    To Mila:

    Caylee’s Father
    —————
    -Jesse Grund, Casey’s former fiancé, was not the father, as proven by a DNA paternity test.
    -Miss Schreiber, Casey’s best friend, was told by Casey that it was just a random one night stand.
    -There was a guy by the name of Eric Baker who died in a car accident in 2007. Cindy Anthony told the court that Casey Anthony had said the father was called Eric Baker.
    -Investigators saw the death certificate for Eric Baker, where the cause of death was listed as car accident, but they did not know whether he had any connection to Casey.

    I hope this helps.

  • Mila says:

    To Willem,

    Yeah, it helps, thanks..
    That Jesse Grund wasn’t the father, I known…
    But did they do a DNA test on Eric Baker as well?

    And ur right, … Even if a book would show up, it would be full of lies anyway.
    That is why I needed facts..

    I really wanna know what happened between the 16th and 24th…
    With her parents working in the afternoon, did Caylee die in the afternoon?
    Casey stole money from her mother Cynthia in the month of june 2008 … and during the 911 call she said: I am not gonna give you another day, Casey, I already gave you a month…

    A month for what? Paying back the money? Bringing Caylee by? A month for what?
    In 2008 she stated in a police interview: you know, I would do anything for Caylee, even stealing ….
    The police tried to confront her and ask her where Caylee was… Casey gave that as an answer…

    I always wondered why she said that .. was she refering to Cynthia and how she stole from her? Was Casey slowly talking about the motive and stop?
    Did the fight between Cynthia and Casey about the money blow up so bad that she took it out on Caylee?

    Around that period Casey was dating Ricardo and Tony…
    Ricardo placed a picture of a woman and man with the sentence: win her over with chloroform on myspace around february.
    Did she get the idea to buy chloroform from that picture?

    Forensic stated that there was a high level of chloroform… but what about the substance chlorine? They would have found that one if Caylee had drown, right?
    I hope the police will publish all the statements made …There must be an answer somewhere that can lead to the motive.

    The above three died in car crashes in 2007.

    They didn’t do DNA on Eric Baker.

    Donna Maclean has petitioned a DNA on her son, but nothing yet.

    Things to Ponder:

    Casey hates her mother because she was controlling her life and accusing her of many things. Cindy, for example, when calling 911 in 2008 to report her missing granddaughter, started by asking the police to arrest Casey for stealing money from her bank account BEFORE telling them that her granddaughter was missing!

    Even if Casey did steal money from her, Cindy’s focus when she called 911 should have been on reporting a missing child only. She had ample time later to ask them to arrest Casey.

    Casey also hates her father because he was was probably molesting her since she was 8 years old. But there is no evidence. George’s dishonesty during the trial and his cheating on Cindy at the time Caylee was missing make me wonder what kind of father he was.

    When the verdict was read by Madam Clerk, George and Cindy did not show emotions upon hearing the first charge (first degree), and left the courtroom immediately before hearing the second and third charges.

    Casey believes her parents put her in all that mess. She also believes they hate her. It could be true. That’s why they left the courtroom early instead of staying and hugging her.

    I believe she has a good relationship with her brother Lee.

    Reconciliation with her parents will never be possible.

  • J, Johnson says:

    You all amaze me. Casey Anthony has gone on her way. killer or not she is free. Bringing up Baez past does not make him a bad attorney. Bottom line he won the case and that is that. There are so many worth while topics to discuss and you all are obssessed with Casey Anthony. If you want justice for Caylee put your energy into her and think about how you can keep her memory alive. There is the Caylee Law. All of you seem to be pretty smart. Put some of that smartness and your energy into something that will keep Caylee’s memory alive. to tell you the truth I am sick of hearing Casy Anthony’s name. If you are not going to do anything positive, then Give up on Casey Anthony.Eventually the truth will surface. Just for the record, Baez did a good job, If you want to bash anyone, bash the state, It was their job to prove her guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. They did not do that. If I was on the jury I would have voted the same way. Too many unanswered question and too many lies. Lets move on people

  • Mila says:

    To Willem,

    Yes, sir. Thank you.
    That helps really well.

  • willem says:

    All the forensic pieces of evidence that the prosecution could ever think of were contradictory, inconclusive, and non-compelling. If you disbelieve the scientists who said there was no chloroform, you also have to disbelieve the scientist who said there was, the defense said. The same thing holds true for human decomposition and other forensic tests.

    Mr. Ashton admitted in an interview that drowning is the only shred of evidence available in this case, although non-compelling, he said. Photographs and videos demonstrated that Caylee was capable of opening the door leading to the pool, Mr. Ashton added.

    The defense, in their closing arguments, have demonstrated the following facts:

    No fingerprints on duct tape which was on gas can.
    No fingerprints on duct tape at the scene.
    No fingerprints on laundry bag.
    No DNA on duct tape on gas can.
    No DNA on duct tape at scene.
    No DNA on paper towels.
    No DNA in the trunk.
    No blood in the trunk.
    No “sticker” on duct tape at scene.
    No chloroform on car seat.
    No chloroform on steering wheel.
    No chloroform in bones.
    No quantitative analysis of air and chloroform.
    No drugs in hair.
    No prescription, OTC, or illicit drugs in bones.
    No hair exhibiting decomposition in car or residence (1 hair found is match to ANY Anthony).
    No soil on Casey’s shoes.
    No soil in trunk.
    No socks at scene.
    No duct tape covering nasals.
    No maggots in trunk outside of the bag of garbage.
    No duct tape on back of skull.
    No blowflies in trunk.
    No discoloration inside skull.
    No prior twisting of arms.
    No fractures.
    No human tissue on duct tape.
    No prior injuries.
    No trauma.
    No reports of child abuse.
    NO CAUSE OF DEATH.

    Based on those findings, the cause of death was not by suffocation nor by physical abuse. It was accidental. The duct tape must have been placed on the mouth part of the skull after the child’s death and by someone other than Casey to stage a kidnap-murder case.

    In Casey’s case, everything points to the high probability that her child died accidentally. She was fearful of reporting it so as not to be charged with negligent homicide, which, according to Florida law, carries a maximum sentence of 30 years’ imprisonment, whereas not reporting the accident is considered a misdemeanor by the same law.

    There was nothing in any of the videos showing that she was ever violent and abusive to the child. Also, all the testimonies showed she was a loving mother.
    show more show less

  • montana272 says:

    The hair that belonged to one of the Anthony women had a death band on it. Not any of the other Anthony women are dead but Caylee. . That is if you choose not to disregard that fact. Not to mention the hair had never been dyed and was the wrong color for the Anthony women. Too long to be the male family members. Caylee was wrapped in several garbage bags, and a laundry bag, not that difficult to figure out that there might not be DNA on the carpet of the trunk of the car. Cindy said there were a ton of maggots in a pizza box, in back of the trunk. Yet, it was reported that there were no maggots to speak of. Should there have even been a ton of flies and maggots in the car, if a dead body is wrapped so many times in plastic and a canvas laundry bag? Most likely NOT. DNA is NOT A tough substance. It can easily be contaminated. It does not stick around for weeks after being submerged in water. AND Of course there is no duct tape around the “back of the skull” as you said. Caylee had long brown Hair and IF the tape was wrapped around her head the back of the tape would have been attached to her HAIR not her skull. If “someone” other than Casey did depose of the body, who did? Someone else did the whole kidnap stagging? That is very FAR REACHING. George tried to cover up a drowning, and staged a kidnapping by telling the police that the back of his daughters car smelled like a dead body had been there? To only implicate his daughter? That is nonsense. Which was it? You can’t have it both ways. Or maybe you want to believe that Roy stagged the kidnapping. OH yeah, so that his DNA would be on the body so that he could risk going to jail? Roy did not have to stage anything, he would have received the reward money regardless. I think people watch way way to much TV and have lost total touch of reality! Someone else made it look like a kidnapping! That is just total nonsense.

    What I listed above were said by Baez in his closing arguments. They are not my statements.

    You could blame the prosecution for not being able to rebut Baez’s arguments and convince the jury that Baez’s arguments are not true. The burden of proof rested with the jury, you know that.

    Alternatively, you could blame the committee who selected the jury, because some people claim that some of them are uneducated, addicted to drugs, alcoholics, and so on.

    You seem very knowledgeable about those bits and pieces of evidence. Maybe you should have contacted the prosecution and gave them some of your advice.

    I don’t understand why there is duplication.

  • montana272 says:

    “example, when calling 911 in 2008 to report her missing granddaughter, started by asking the police to arrest Casey for stealing money from her bank account BEFORE telling them that her granddaughter was missing!”

    That statement is wrong. Cindy was not informed that caylee was “Missing” Until her SECOND call to police. Your talking about the first call to police. And in that first call that you are talking about, Cindy was not aware that Caylee was actually MISSING. You cannot call the police just because your daughter won’t let you see your grand child. Cindy only called the police to have casey arrested because she would not tell her where Caylee was. It was not until Cindy over heard Casey talking to lee, that cindy found out that Caylee was actually missing and had been for 31 days. That is when Cindy made the second call to police.

  • montana272 says:

    I just find it hard to beleive that anyone would think that George is the one that found Caylee’s body in the pool. After Casey was arrested while everyone was still looking for Zanny. George went to visit Casey in Jail. George said to Casey that he just wanted to find Caylee so that he could take her places and to take her swimming again. I find that comment to be completely off if he in fact found Caylee dead in the pool. Casey had no reaction to that at all but to smile and say she wanted that too. It is over with and I am done with this case. Hopefully people will just let the Anthony’s alone and get on with their life.

  • willem says:

    montana272

    You are done with this case, but you were brainwashed by Nancy Grace who made you believe that Casey was guilty before the trial even started. She could have offered Caylee for adoption. She could have left the child with her parents and abandoned her parents. She is not insane, she is not psychotic, and everyone testified she was a loving mother. She is a compulsive liar, okay, millions of people are liars, including the president of our country, politicians, lawyers, and priests, but they do not murder their kids. So why would she implicate herself in a murder case? I just don’t understand the logic behind all this.

  • montana272 says:

    ~sigh You have that one wrong too buddy. I prefer to “wash” my brain with Comedy Shows. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, they said my little sisters father was a wonderful guy too, a loving father, an all around nice guy. People would even defended him left and right. But he was EVIL. It took years but he is now in jail. He murdered his 3rd wife by shooting her in the back three times while she was running away from him. So what you said means nothing to me. I don’t use what other people say to sway my opinion of someone.

  • willem says:

    To montana272

    I read in one of your previous posts that you were, “…horribly abused as a child, mentally physically and sexually assaulted.”

    That’s exactly what Casey Anthony experienced as a child, according to her lawyer. Is it hard to believe that? That’s why she became a compulsive liar. Physical and sexual abuse of a child transforms the personality of a child into a sociopath, according to psychologists.
    I don’t know about you.

    So, what’s so difficult to understand why she lied to law enforcement officers, why she was partying after the death of her child? She was living in denial all her life.

    So what do we do with all the energy and outrage we developed on Caylee’s behalf? Maybe we should put our energy toward looking out for the countless other children still alive who are homeless, in poverty, abused or neglected and need our help.

    In the U.S. you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. She was not found guilty. Therefore, she is innocent.

    OK, I am sure some of us have been watching this very closely, I for one have been watching it since Nancy Grace started talking about it back in 2008, before they even found the body of the child. I have always believed that Casey was not guilty of murdering her child, but rather guilty of freaking out that the child was dead, and she would be blamed for it, so decided to hide the body instead. I think her defense attorney did an excellent job, and I am glad the Jurors found her not guilty.

    The entire pieces of evidence presented by the prosecution, including the forensic tests (which included the chloroform, the stain in the trunk, the hair in the trunk, the smell of human decomposition, the duct tape, etc.,) as well as the entire 350+ exhibits, were all fitting firmly within the “reasonable doubt” category, because they were all inconsistent and contradictory.

    If you disbelieve scientists who say there was no evidence of chloroform, you also have to disbelieve those who say there was evidence of chloroform. The same thing holds true for the hair, the human decomposition, the stain, the duct tape, etc.

    If all the scientists agreed, for example, that there was indeed human decomposition in the trunk, then that piece of information would fit firmly within the “beyond reasonable doubt” category.

    None of those pieces of evidence, none whatsoever, was “beyond reasonable doubt”. Mr. Ashton admitted that in an interview with Bill O’Reilly, and confessed that the only shred of evidence available was that Caylee could open the door to the backyard and climb the ladder adjacent to the pool all by herself. But still, it was speculation that Caylee did in fact do that.

    I respectfully disagree that Casey’s abuse could be compared to the horrible abuse that I and my sisters had in our life. I will not go into the horrific details. I do believe that Jose would have said a lot more had he said, if there had been. Your statement that “Physical and sexual abuse of a child transforms the personality of a child into a sociopath, according to psychologists”, is simply not true. While I am sure a few do (mostly men from what I understand) most abused children do not turn into sociopaths. If they do, they are more likely to commit murder according to the statistics. A picture of Caylee reaching for a door and climbing a ladder with her grandmother is no evidence of anything. Just like the pictures of Caylee’s skull and the way she was disposed of meant nothing to the jury. No one who loved Caylee would despose of her like that. And according to Jose it was George who left the house with Caylee’s dead body. It is a known fact that family members of the accused get on the stand and lie for their family members. While Cindy’s brother did not know all the dynamics of the family, he made it very clear that Casey was never punished for anything and treated like a princess, if you believe what he said is true, maybe that is where the making of a sociopath comes from. I don’t know if Casey was sexually abused. We could go on and on, but you saw things differently than I saw them, people see things differently based on their own point of understanding. Whether Caylee’s death was an accident or a murder, there is one fact that had more evidence than anything else in the trial. That fact is that Casey did not care what happened to Caylee and that she was dead. The evidence of that was more overwhelming than anything else. Only one fact I will mention here and I will say it again, when Lee talked to Casey in jail he asked her why are you keeping Caylee from us? Casey said “Because I am a spiteful Bit@#!” And people say that Caylee’s death was an accident?

    The justice system says, “your are innocent until proven guilty.” Casey was proven not guilty, therefore, by logic, she is innocent.

    Instead of wasting our energy in blaming the jurors in making hasty decision, that they spent only 11 hours in deliberation, that most of them are uneducated, as so many people claim, we have to accept the fact that the jurors were selected from a pool of about 500 candidates. The people who selected them were the attorneys from both sides and the judge.

    Otherwise, we have to petition our judicial system that they change the law of jury selection by requiring that jurors to be selected must be lawyers, or holders of university degrees with background in jurisprudence, sociology, psychology, criminology, or other social sciences.

    If it were not the jurors’ errors, then we should petition our judicial system that the result of any piece of forensic evidence presented by the prosecution must be agreed upon by all scientists examining that piece, otherwise it should be dismissed as a piece of evidence, especially in cases involving first degree murder.

    I will definitely buy it if I know that she is confessing that she killed her daughter, otherwise it will all be lies. We heard enough lies already.

    I never heard of Casey Anthony’s story except this year, and I watched the trial from day 1 until the closing arguments; never missed one day.

    This case is so complicated and has hundreds, if not thousands, of dots to be connected. I am still confused as to what solid evidence do we have that justify the guilty verdict, considering she was not declared insane?

  • montana272 says:

    I would like to know what the one Juror meant when she said that “we all felt sick to our stomach” And “we did not say she was innocent” If that is how they truly felt then then the right thing for them to do would have been to come back a hung jury. To feel “sick” does not indicate to me that they felt she was completely innocent. Not to mention the Juror herself said they did not think she was innocent. Just not guilty of premeditated murder. That is what I am going by. It would have been better for the jury to keep quite instead of saying conflicting comments like that, to the public. The jury did an injustice to victims. All they did was set a precedent for other copy cat cases to follow. One mother claims her child was kidnapped and then you have a rash of other parents claiming the same stuff and so on. I am just talking about the guilty here and not an actual stranger kidnapping. The jury just let the ball drop plain and simple.

  • Lilian says:

    I agree. That juror you mentioned should not have said they felt “sick”, because that implies that they were in limbo, not knowing what decision to make. Probably they were tired and couldn’t concentrate any more.

    They should have rested for a couple of days in their motel without discussing the case, and then resume deliberation after having two good nights’ sleep.

    Or they could have declared they were unable to reach a decision (hung).

    I honestly believe that this case has so many elements in it to analyze, especially the forensics stuff, and deliberation for a trial that took so long should at least take a week or two, not just 11 hours. They probably ignored the technical stuff because they were too hard to digest, considering their academic backgrounds.

  • Lilian says:

    Many, many, many people ask why didn’t Casey call 911 if her child accidentally drowned in the pool? The answer is because her child was dead already, dead, dead for many hours. The only thing 911 could do is write a report of child neglect leading to death of a child. Casey’s mother forgot to remove the ladder next to the pool. Aggravated manslaughter of a child carries a maximum sentence of 30 years’ imprisonment, according to Florida law. That’s what most people don’t understand, or rather don’t want to understand. Why? Because they are simple people, because they are blood thirsty, because they are stupid. That’s why!

  • rick turner says:

    Why in the world would I waste my time, money to read a pack of lies! This sick individual just needs to fade away and sink back into the gutter where she belongs.

  • Pity people like her get away with stuff like this. And then they go on to become millionaires by writing books about it? Disgraceful.

    PEOPLE JUST DONT WANT TO BELIEVE THAT THIS MURDERER ACTUALLY KILLED HER CHILD.I DID NOT WANT TO BELIEVE IT AND SAID ITS SOUNDS MORE LIKE AN ACCIDENT.I DONT THINK SHE INTENDED THE MURDER BUT IT WAS EITHER A CHLOROFORMING GONE BAD, OR SHE JUST SUFFOCATED HER INTENTIONALLY. — WHEN THERE IS AN ACCIDENT FAMILY MEMBERS USUALLY ALWAYS NOT SOMETIMES BUT ALWAYS CALL 911 AND THE POLICE. WHY WOULD YOU NOT WANT THE BODY TO BE GIVEN RESPECT AND SHOWN DECENCY AFTER DEATH. HOW CAN AND WHY WOULD A CHILD BE DUCT TAPED AFTER DEATH /BECAUSE AT THE TIME SHE WAS DUCT TAPE SHE WAS ALIVE AND BEING DRUGGED SO CASEY COULD HAVE FREE TIME AND WHEN SHE CAME BACK FROM HER FREE TIME CASEY WAS DEAD! THERE IS YOUR ACCIDENT! CASEY’S PLAN BACKFIRED AND HER CHILD DIED! SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE DID SO SHE CANT CALL THE COPS SHE NEEDED MORE TIME. SHE KEPT TELLING HER MOM “JUST GIVE ME ONE MORE DAY” WHEN HER MOM THREATENED TO CALL POLICE SHE WAS BEGGING FOR MORE TIME! THIS IS WHEN THE MOTHER WAS GETTING ALL THE LIES AND NOT SEEING HER GRANDDAUGHTER!WHEN THE GRANDPARENTS GOT THE NOTICE ABOUT THE CAR BEING TOWED FOR WEEKS! THAT WAS IT! BUSTED!!! WHY WOULD YOU ABANDON YOUR CAR FOR WEEKS JUST TO HAVE FREE TIME WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND LIE TO THE PEOPLE THAT IS TAKEN CARE OF YOUR DAUGHTER. THAT CANT MAKE SENSE TO THE PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE CASEY IS INNOCENT. REALLY? YOU CANNOT BELIEVE THAT SHE IS DOING ALL THIS LIEING JUST TO HEAR HERSELF LIE! SHE COVERED UP AND COVERED AND KEPT COVERING FOR 3 YEARS AND GOT HER LAWYER TO JOIN HER IN THE COVER UP AND NOW SHE WANTS PEOPLE TO HELP HER GET RICH OFF OF A BOOK ABOUT THE WHOLE LIE! B—-H!PLEASE!I DO WANT THE STATE TO BE PAID BACK FOR THE SEARCH THAT SHE CAUSED FOR HER DAUGHTER WHEN SHE KNEW VERY WELL WHERE SHE WAS, BUT I CANT GIVE A PENNY TO THE LIER OF THE CENTURY! REMEMBER THE SHOVEL SHE PUT THAT GIRL IN THE WOODS TO ROT AND THOUGTH NO ONE WOULD FIND HER SHE EVEN HAD TIME TO MOVE THE BODY CUS SHE WAS NOT ARRESTED UNTIL OCTOBER OF 2008 SHE HAD 2 AND 1/2MONTHS TO MOVE THAT BODY TO KEEP IT FROM BEING FOUND IS WHY THEY DID NOT FIND IT THE FIRST TIME. DONT FORGET IT WAS IN THE TRUNK FIRST BEFORE IT WAS BURIED. THEY HAD BAD RAIN AND THEN THE BODY WAS FOUND LATER AND THE REASON THAT GUY FOUND THE BODY WAS BECAUSE HE WAS LOOKING FOR IT WANTING THE REWARD MONEY! MAKE SENSE! THE NAME OF THE MOVIE SHOULD BE ” THE PERFECT LIE” OR THE PERFECT COVER UP” OR JUST PLAIN OLE “BELLA VIDA” (THE GOOD LIFE), BASED ON A TRUE STORY OF CASEY ANTHONY! I WANT GO TO SEE THE MOVIE NOR BUY ANYTHING TO BENEFIT CASEY ANTHONY! IT WOULD BE A DISGRACE TO CAYLEE MORE THAN IT ALREADY HAS BEEN. STILL TO THIS DAY THIS AS SOME THINK, “POOR INNOCENT WOMAN, HAS YET TO SPEAK A WORD TO HER PARENTS AND THAT TO ME SPEAKS VOLUMES ABOUT CASEYS GUILT! IT SPEAKS VOLUMES IF YOU ARE SO INNOCENT WHY WOULD YOU HAVE NOTHIG TO DO WITH YOUR PARENTS ESPECIALLY YOUR MOM WHO PURGERED HERSELF ON THE STAND IN COURT FOR YOU AFTER SHE LOST HER GRANDCHILD, EMPLOYMENT AND EVERYTHING BECAUSE OF YOUR LIES! HOW DARE CASEY BUT I KNOW HOW THE SAME WAY SHE KILLED HER DAUGHTER THE THINKING THAT SHE CAN HAVE WHAT SHE WANTS NO MATTER WHAT! SHE CANT FOOL GOD THOUGH AND HE CONTROLS EVERYTHING ON THIS EARTH AND ONE DAY SHE IS GOING TO GET WHAT SHE DESERVES AND I HOPE I LIVE TO SEE THAT MOVIE! NOW THAT IS THE SEQUEL TO THE MOVIE I WILL ATTEND — THEY CAN CALL IT “THE CAYLEE VENDICATION”, I WILL BE FRONT ROW ON THAT ONE AND CHEERING IN THE AUDIENCE! RIP CAYLEE

    what is wrong with Florida. Used to think that it would a great state to live in. I actually have a sister who lives there, but after this case and the TREVON MARTIN CASE, I dont think Florida is a place where JUSTICE IS NORMALLY SERVED. The people there seem to be too leaniant to murderers and that is not a good look at all, just sayin.

  • Teresa K. Matthews says:

    This is a fine example of how stupid (yes, I am a native but…)
    Florida really is. The jury probably had no concept of Naracissism.
    Casey wanted to live her fantasy life which didn’t include being held down by a child. Her dad, George is probably naracissitic as well. She can lie with no shame, remorse or guilt. It’s all about her. She convinced the jurors (who had to be the stupidest people on the earth) that she was innocent but MOST COMMON SENSE people know she did do this. Who else did. No I don’t want to read a book written by a immature girl who lies with every breath. I would come more likely to reading Cindy Anthonys’ book but I wouldn’t want her to relive it all over again. She has been made to pay for nothing she has done. She wouldn’t have known Casey’s
    condition without reading about it first. Casey also took the one person she knew Cindy loved!! Casey was never attached emotionally to Caylee, Caylee was no more than an object that was in Caseys’ way. She still has to answer to God though. Will Casey make it once out in public like O.J. Simpson did? Florida should be ashamed of this movie deal for the love of money. I don’t want to live in this state any longer as I have yet to see JUSTICE! May all the big wigs in Florida roit in HELL as I think they sealed their fate.
