It has taken three years for the Casey Anthony trial to begin. This murder case is said to be one of the most documented, analyzed and commented on murder cases ever, and the circumstances surrounding the girl's disappearance are sketchy and bizarre. Anthony's 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, was reported missing in the summer of 2008. The last photo of Caylee was taken on Father's Day of that year, and her body was found in December, badly decomposed. During those several months, Casey Anthony invented an elaborate web of stories and lies to hide the fact that her daughter was missing. She told her parents that Caylee was either with a babysitter, a nanny, or at Universal Studios. Eventually Anthony claimed that her daughter was kidnapped by the babysitter, but according to the prosecutor, it was a "babysitter that nobody has ever seen, that nobody has ever heard of." Anthony's activities during those months make her look even worse. She apparently partied at several nightclubs and visited a couple of tattoo parlors, getting one tattoo that says "Bella Vita." Beautiful life, indeed--even if her daughter was kidnapped by a babysitter, it's obvious that she was overwhelmingly unconcerned.
When Caylee's body was found, it was too badly decomposed to determine a cause of death. But that car belonged to Casey Anthony--a 1998 Pontiac Sunfire--that Anthony's father picked up after it had been towed. The smell was overwhelming: His wife, when her husband came home, approached the car and said, "Jesus, what died." However, in spite of the car's forensic evidence, experts say the state doesn't have an air tight case against Anthony. Richard Hornsby, a Florida lawyer, says that there remains strong evidence of reasonable doubt as well.
Come on. Caylee's body was found in the trunk of her mother's car after she lied again and again about her whereabouts? And there is still cause for reasonable doubt? How can the jury not find this woman guilty? What do you think will be the outcome of the Casey Anthony trial?
