Casey Anthony–reasonable doubt that she’s responsible for Caylee’s disappearance?

October 16, 2008

I find myself wondering if the “court of public opinion” could be wrong about Casey Anthony, and Caylee is indeed alive and being held by some unknown person or persons.  Is Casey like the little boy who cried wolf so many times that now we would never believe her no matter how much we’d like to buy what she’s sellin’?  Could what Cindy Anthony wants us to believe be true–someone has her granddaughter, Casey is telling the truth now, and little Caylee is suffering the consequences of her mother’s earlier deception?  Does the defense have evidence so powerful and so dangerous to the child and her family that they have to  hide it from everyone, (including the police) and Caylee must remain lost until this startling revelation can be presented in court?

What could they all be sitting on that would make it acceptable for Casey to go to trial for murder in a state where the death penalty is a distinct possibility?  More importantly, what information could they be withholding that is worth leaving  Caylee in unknown hands until Casey’s trial?  It’s a mystery to me why they wouldn’t want to provide proof , if it exists, to the police–especially if that evidence could prove Casey’s innocence and bring Caylee home.

As much as I would like to buy what they’re selling, it just doesn’t add up.  The facts are the facts–and the facts are:

  1. Casey researched missing children and chloroform on the internet.
  2. Caylee was getting older and starting to put a real crimp in Casey’s lifestyle.
  3. Caylee was starting to talk, and that definitely would have been a cause of concern for Casey. (Zanny who? Me and Mommy sleep in the bed with her boyfriends, I like parties, etc. etc.)
  4. Cindy and George were putting pressure on Casey to grow up and take responsibility for herself and her daughter, or they were going to seek custody of Caylee and kick her out.
  5. Casey’s lifestyle was spinning out of control, and her lies were starting to catch up with her.
  6. She didn’t tell a soul that her daughter was missing, not even her closest friends, and she behaved as if nothing was wrong.
  7. She avoided her family until they hunted her down and dragged her home kicking and screaming.
  8. There was human decomposition in the trunk of the car and the DNA most likely was Caylee’s.
  9. She lied to her family, she lied to the police, and she’s lying now.

I know Jose Baez is trying to create reasonable doubt for Casey’s involvement in Caylee’s disappearance, but I have to wonder if Casey has really been made to understand that her own life is at stake here, and the odds that she’s gonna talk her way out of this one are not in her favor.  If she’s the narcissist that everyone thinks she is, I’m betting that once reality sets in, once she finally gets it that her mom won’t be able to rescue her and that producing her child is her only hope for her own survival, she will give up what she knows.  At least that what I’m praying for.

    Also there was the money she took from the grandparents…According to Padilla…Cindy flipped out and choked Casey. (wish she would do that now)
    And Cindy saw that psychologist who told Cindy to kick Casey out and seek custody of Caylee.

    It seems so obvious to everyone that she killed Caylee that a jury would agree…But then again I thought the same about OJ Simpson.

    From what cindy has been saying, casey was a great mom.You have to wonder what she told the psycologist to get such a strong response….Is a conversation with some one in that dept. admissable in court?Oh, and thanks for your blog-always insightful.

    thank you for reading it, stacy!

    You have a good point-if Casey was such a great mom, why was Cindy seeing a counselor and thinking about seeking custody? I doubt it’s admissable in court-I think a counselor is subject to the same confidentiality rules as a physician. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    Monica, I thought OJ was guilty too, and was shocked at that verdict. Just can’t imagine Casey getting off with all the evidence we’ve seen plus whatever else they might have that we haven’t seen– but just like OJ, I guess it’s possible–Don’t think Jose and the gang are the same class as the “dream team” that OJ had though!

    Unlike OJ, Casey isn’t a beloved athlete known the world over. That’s the difference, I think people didn’t want to believe that O.J. Simpson, who even I liked because I grew up in the 70′ and 80’s and he was a household name, could be capable of being a killer. Most people don’t seem to be very fond of Casey prior to her trial.
    Anyway, I agree with Stacy, your common sense articles are very nice to read and I enjoy them too. Obviously the psychologist was concerned for Cindy’s well being(andCaylee’s) by telling her she had to put her foot down quickly and get Casey out of that house. Obviously it was getting to a point where it wasn’t a healthy relationship between any of them. So how can Cindy say that Casey was a good mom?? In what sense?? Cindy even admitted that she herself was more of a mom to Caylee than Casey was. I am sure that Casey and Caylee did things together and had some fun etc. but as far as being a mother, a real true mother, I am not so sure. Calling Casey a good mother is an insult to all the really good moms out there!
    Lastly, I too have thought about the scenerio you have presented but I keep coming back to thinking it just isn’t possible. What could be the reason that Caylee is out there with someone but no one can say anything? Once the “truth” comes out, is Caylee coming back home?? Why is it okay for the “truth” to come out in trial but not between July 15th and the trial date?? Plus, if human decomposition and bodily fluids were in the trunk and the dna matches someone with the Anthony dna, who elses could it be??

    OJ walked away free, but Casey won’t. Even if there is not enough evidence (in the jury’s eyes) to convict her of Caylee’s death, there is more than enough evidence to send her to jail for the stolen checks.

    And even if they succeed in convincing the jury that she had to carry on as usual and not tell anyone because otherwise the mob would come after her and her family—there are still the lies she told police investigators.

    That will get her some kind of penalty all by itself. She would have been better off just claiming amnesia, or pleading the fifth, than lying to cops.

    I can’t think that any jury would buy that lame story that she couldn’t talk for fear they,the mob would harm Caylee and her family,what a crock of crap! From what I have read and seen on the news these drug dealers just don’t work that way. You owe you pay,and if you don’t they take you out. She should have said these people took Caylee to sell her because of a debt she(KC) owed them and if she was to tell anyone they would take her out no time line SHE COULD NEVER TELL. But the looking on the web for missing children data,the chloroform,and the very damaging trunk evidence would void the other story.

    KC thinks her mother will get her out of this,she has always got KC out of trouble before.She feels the same way about Baez,she thinks he really believes all her lies,and maybe HE DOES, but this is the role of a defense attorney,they create a defense on your story. I wonder if she will wise up and realize that,as you said she is in REAL TROUBLE this time and in order to save her hide she had better start talking.

    Any and all stories she had or comes up with in the future are pretty much null and void for 1 indisputable reason–decomposition and caylee’s dna in the trunk of the car. If this one piece of evidence is true, no story–other than where she put the body has any credence.

    I agree with everyone here…Casey’s situation is nothing like OJ’s other than the fact they are both murderers.
    I guess I am just nervous that something will happen or information will leak out and the defense will be able to show reasonable doubt , get a hung jury or Baez will be able to prove that she can’t get a fair trial….I’m just thinking in a what if scenario.
    As far as what I personally believe there is no reasonable doubt in my mind.
    I am not 100% sure as to how Caylee was killed or what Casey did with her body…but there is no doubt in my mind as to her guilt.

    Cindy Anthony’s discussion with her shrink won’t be admissable in court due to patient client priviledge. Too bad she didn’t get Casey to a shrink, maybe someone could have helped her before she killed Caylee. The difference between Casey and OJ might really be the fact that the Orlando DA might not make a dumb move like having Casey try on bloody gloves. These prosecutors are staying out of the media frenzy and are waiting for their day in court. What I can’t figure out is why they keep Casey in “protective custody” in a cell all by herself. She should be in general population…she might actually get a little of what she dished out to Caylee by the other inmates (they don’t like baby killers which is why most mothers who are convicted of killing their children are on death row and separated from the general population). Casey is not crazy, she is a narcissist, a whore, a liar and a theif. She killed her daughter because she wanted to punish her mother, she wanted her old life back and she wanted to do what she wanted to do. Mobs don’t steal children because like Casey they don’t want to be saddled with having to feed them, care for them. If a mob took Caylee there would be a ransom or they would have just killed Casey. Caylee paid the price and the only mob who killed her was her mother Casey Anthony….perhaps the most dangerous mob of all….a supposedly “good mother”.

    I heard Mr. Grund on Nancy G. and he said that he keeps in contact with Leonard P. and Rob D. and they have a theory that Casey was trying to stage a kidnapping to possibly get money from her parents and it went wrong. To me that makes alot of sense, because of the missing kids website searches coupled with the chloroform. I could be wrong here, but it makes alot of sense. She’s still responsible, it just sounds like something completely ridiculous, and not well thought out, and that sounds like Casey to me.

    Niecey 456-good thinking, that sounds like it could have been a reason,as something else is behind this–the puzzle is not fitting together right. KC even told Amy they would have a house together, very soon, but it was Casey’s mother & daddy house, she was refering to, right. Maybe she was planning on killing her parents & getting the house, perhaps luring them from the house to see Caylee & saying the kidnapper killed them, something way OUT there,-at first I thought burn the house, with parents in there,but she wanted the house.
    I know her scheme involves more than just poor precious Caylee & I think she may have had help.
