    Some actual evidence against her would be kinda nice, don't you think?

    Well, no...I can't go along with that, assuming she is guilty. Even in the case of war criminals like Dick Cheney we should be satisfied with life in the slammer with naught to eat or drink save Wonder Bread and grape soda.

    So you think it's reasonable to conclude her daughter accidentally drowned in the pool and instead of calling 9-11 she wrapped her head in duct tape, dumped her in the woods and went out partying - participating in a "hot body" contest at a local club?

    Is it your claim that that is the defense theory of the case?

    The defense is claiming accidental drowning, yes.

    Yes they are. And the prosecution has presented no evidence proving a cause of death. That's a bit of a problem for "beyond a reasonable doubt", don't you think? As the CSM said:

    But it is still unclear precisely how the toddler died.

    There’s been no confession, no eye witnesses have come forward, and investigators have found no direct physical evidence capable of telling the tale with scientific certainty.

    She'll probably get convicted; a child is dead and juries usually want to hold someone accountable. But a DP in this case would have an unacceptably high possibility of killing a woman who may not be guilty of anything other than being a lousy parent and a bad liar.

    No evidence of cause of theath. The three pieces of duct tape being wrapped around her mouth and nose isn't evidence of sufication? The llarge amounts of chloroform being found in the trunk in her trunk of her car (to coincide with 84 web searches on chloroform and "neck breaking" isn't evidence?

    You're getting stronger btw. You were able to move the goal posts from "no evidence against her" (which is absurd!) to "no evidence proving a cause of death"

    Your analysis of the evidence is a fantasy. No duct tape was found wrapped around her mouth and nose. Trace amounts of chloroform was found in the air of the trunk. Her mother admitted to making the web searches from a computer accessible to anyone in the house including visitors.

    I suggest you actually review the facts for a change rather than making it up as you go along.

    To me the case screams "reasonable doubt". At the very least, it is not a case that is DP appropriate given the gaps in the evidence.

    WTF??

    What the hell have you been watching? Three pieces of duct tape were found wrapped around the her skull and hair! Not even the defense is deying that!

    Testimony from bother her mother and father were debunked as lies, in fact, her mother was proven to be at work the date and time those entries were searched. Her mother claimed the words "neck break" were the result of a pop up about a "neck breaking skate board trick." That was proven to be impossible.

    Even Casey's own attorney is using her parants incessant lies as a defense. He is claiming the reason Casely lied to investigators over and over is because she learned the behavior from her parents.

    PS: Are you going to resind your initial claim that there's no evidence against Casey, or are you still attempting to quietly move the goal posts?

    The exact location of said duct tape is unknown; no one testified that it was wrapped over her nose and mouth as you claimed.

    The mother's testimony is disputed. It is up to the jury to decide whether she was telling the truth or not.

    By "actual evidence" I meant something beyond the circumstantial evidence the prosecution case is heavily reliant on. Proof that Caylee was murdered is a necessary element of the crime so it's hardly as trivial as you seem to think it is. Again as the CSM article points out: investigators have found no direct physical evidence capable of telling the tale with scientific certainty.



    BTW, I'm not really interested in your usual, hostile, personal pissing matches, so you should try to stay on-topic. I'm not going to respond to them anymore.

    In court at the Casey Anthony murder trial on Monday morning, Elizabeth Fontaine, a physical scientist and forensic examiner, testified that there was heart-shaped residue on the duct tape that had been over the mouth of the 2-year-old.

    http://www.clickorlando.com/news/28379304/detail.html

    Caylee's Winnie the Pooh blanket was found at the scene with her remains. The defense has tried to show that the duct tape found on Caylee's skull, which is the same brand as the duct tape found in the Anthony's shed, was placed there after her body had decomposed in an effort to stage the scene.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Caylee_Anthony
    According to an FBI laboratory email, a heart-shaped outline was originally seen on the duct tape that was recovered from the mouth area of Caylee's skull, but the laboratory was not able to capture the heart shape photographically and could no longer see it after the duct tape was dusted for fingerprint processing.

    The mother's testimony is apparently disputed (as truthful) by YOU, but apparently Casey's defense attorney was all too happy to throw her under the bus.

    PS: Being that everyone can cleary see you back peddling, I wouldn't respond either. When back into a corner, pretend to take the high road. Got it.

    Your statements remain a gross exaggeration; there was no testimony that three pieces of duct tape were wrapped around the mouth and nose of Caylee Anthony's body. Admittedly that is the prosecution's theory, but their experts would only say that one piece was in the "vicinity of the mouth" and that another "could have" covered both the mouth and nose. That is far from what you have claimed.

    The mother's statement regarding the web searches is disputed by the prosecution.
