The question has been litigated now for over three years. We are now in
trial and almost four weeks later the case has not gone to the jury to
decide Casey Anthony's fate. Such a high profile case and yet the
"who done it" appeal is still there and both sides (prosecution
and defense) at the end of the day are doing a fine job presenting their
side of the case. This case is especially difficult because a young mother,
who seems normal and acts normal on the surface, is charged with murdering
her only child who was two years old at the time of the
murder. It's difficult to fathom what possibly could have motivated Casey
Anthony to murder her daughter. The prosecution and newspapers have presented
motives such as young mother who falls for a new boyfriend who wants nothing
to do with a girl with a young child. So in a misguided effort to save
her new relationship with her new boyfriend she begins to research online
how to kill without getting caught. Some of the internet searches conducted
from a computer located in her house was about chloroform. Other searches
indicated somebody researching methodology to murder and not get caught.
So far we have the prosecution presenting their version of facts and events
as they believe it could have happened. The duct tape and chloroform found
on the duct tape is damning evidence for Casey Anthony. Even if the defense
is going to argue accidental drowning in a pool how do you get around
the simple fact that a piece of duct tape with chloroform was found securely
fastened over the mouth and nose of the remains founds to be Caylee Anthony?
Certainly a difficult case, but the State of Florida has the burden of
proof that Casey Anthony was indeed the person who committed this crime.
No matter how ugly the facts of a case, the prosecution still has to connect
you to the actual crime. Call now your
