Since 2008, questions about who killed Caylee Anthony, the two-year-old daughter of Casey Anthony have haunted the little girl’s family and community. The top suspect, Casey Anthony, has been on trial for the past six weeks.
After months of defending herself against the terrible murder, Anthony was outrageously found not guilty of the murder on all counts having to do with her child’s death.
It took the five men and the seven women of the jury just over ten hours to reach a verdict after spending over six weeks in the courtroom listening to both sides of the argument.
On the counts pertaining to the murder of her daughter, first-degree murder and a lesser charge, Casey Anthony was found not guilty. As little condolence, she was found guilty of four counts of misdemeanor offenses of lying to officials, which could get her up to four years in prison. Hopefully she gets all four years that she deserves. She will be sentenced Thursday at 9 in the morning by Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. of Orange County.
The moment that the verdict was read, Anthony broke out in tears, as mobs outside the courthouse were enraged.
Casey Anthony is the same woman who lied profusely to police after the disappearance of her daughter, partied for thirty days straight with her friends and her boyfriend, got the tattoo “Bella Vita” (translation beautiful life) while knowing her daughter was missing, Google searched “chloroform”, neck breaking and other incriminating terms among many other suspicious activities.
Jose Baez, Anthony’s lawyer, said after the verdict was read, “There are no winners in this case. Caylee has passed on far, far too soon.” He went on to say, “Casey did not murder Caylee. It’s that simple. And today, our system of justice has not dishonored her memory by a false conviction.”
Shockingly, the twelve-person jury decided that there was not enough evidence to honestly say that the 25-year-old Anthony did in fact abuse and murder her daughter.
The prosecution described an ugly series of events where Anthony allegedly chloroformed her daughter, suffocated her with duct tape, and left the body in the trunk of her car. Evidently, the jury did not believe there was enough evidence to convict. We all can’t wait to hear what the questionable jury was thinking!
The defense said that Caylee drowned in a swimming pool in July of 2008 and Anthony was frightened so she frantically disposed of the body in fear of a potential outcry of how careless she was to allow such an event to happen. The defense also accused her father, George Anthony, of molesting Casey; and hinted that her brother may be the father of Casey’s daughter when asking if his DNA was tested in conjunction of Caylee.
America sees this as an unbelievable miscarriage of justice, with much outrage to come. Unfortunately, as far as official documents are to be concerned, Casey Anthony is not a murderer.
