The Two Cents: Casey Anthony Just Found Not Guilty In Murder Of Daughter, Do You Think She Did It?

The verdict is in: After ten hours of deliberation, the jury has declared Florida mother, Casey Anthony, NOT GUILTY in the alleged killing of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in 2008.

Here are the results of the counts to which Casey Anthony was charged: Murder in the first-degree-not guilty; aggravated manslaughter of a child-not guilty; aggravated child abuse-not guilty; and four counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer-guilty.

A controversial trial that has created a veritable media-frenzy, the prosecution claims that Anthony suffocated her daughter with duct tape. Her defense said that Caylee accidentally drowned.

[pullquote quote=”But she’s (Casey Anthony) a liar and a slut…Convict her on that…she made some stupid decisions, but let’s make her pay with her life.” credit=”Jose Baez, sarcastic in his closing defense arguments”]”I’d like to call this next phase, the state’s fantasy of forensics…Phantom stickers, phantom stains…no DNA, no fingerprints, nothing. But she’s [Casey Anthony] a liar and a slut…Convict her on that…she made some stupid decisions, but let’s make her pay with her life.”

“You have seen this checkbook prosecution where they spared no expense, utilized the finest crime labs in the country…used not only established areas of forensic science but created new ones that were never testified before in front of a jury…This is about winning a high profile case and nothing else. This is not about the search for truth.”

“The key question in this case will never be answered…and that is, how did Caylee die?”

-Casey Anthony’s defense attorney, Jose Baez

[pullquote quote=”She is guilty of murder in the first degree, and that murder was premeditated.” credit=”Jeff Ashton”]”She took her child, she took her life and she put her in the trunk and forgot about her. After a couple of days, she couldn’t forget anymore and she disposed of her body in a swamp…She is guilty of murder in the first degree, and that murder was premeditated.”

“The only way Casey’s lies work is if Caylee isn’t talking. Caylee is two and a half, almost 3. She’s starting to become verbal. She’s starting talk. Caylee is not going to cooperate…We can only hope that the chloroform was used before the tape was applied so that Caylee went peacefully without feeling.”

-Prosecutor Jeff Ashton’s closing arguments

    This is almost unbelievable! No mother in her right mind would or could be out socializing while her daughter had just died. This is dispicable. The JURY needs to be put in jail!

  2. brian says:

    Casey guilty of lying? You ask why? Because she is hiding the truth about her daughter. The prosecution failed to overcome reasonable doubt. So the jury has no choice but to s not convict.however the lies were absolutely proved.

  3. Well I think she is a liar she should be put to death for murdering her daughter I know she did it and I am not on a jury and I think the jury should be found guilty for not knowing that she did it they are all idiots they should all pay for letting that bitch get off if I was caylee father I would have kicked caseys ass you see I have a 4 year old daughter if anyone did anything to her I would kick their ass til they wouldn’t be able to stand up anymore

    Is she guilty?? Yes. Just because we have the Y2K version of the OJ jury, who took what should’ve been a slam dunk case and f**ked it up……… The stories of her being abused by her father are such crap. She was so distraught over the “abuse” that it didn’t even come into play until she was being accused of murder. Suprisingly enough, she’d probably be safer in jail. Because once she’s walking around free, it’d be a damn shame if someone walked up and shot her in the face, or fed her to a gator.

    They all made a lie of convenience. I think Cindy left the ladder up and Caylee did drown, but how did JoJo get her? Wouldnt she sink? This was a group effort to allow Casey to take the fall because each and everyone of them knew Caylee was not murdered by her mother. They could not handle owning up to being responsible for a death, so they staged it to look like a babynapping. They lied, to convince everybody and themselves this baby might come back, and then they thought of the money. They got in too deep with the lies.I think if the verdict were guilty, they would have stood up and declared the truth before Casey sentenced to death. Think about it, it makes more sense.than what we’ve heard for 3 years.
