Casey Anthony–reasonable doubt that she’s responsible for Caylee’s disappearance?
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:
- Casey researched missing children and chloroform on the internet.
- Caylee was getting older and starting to put a real crimp in Casey’s lifestyle.
- 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.)
- 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.
- Casey’s lifestyle was spinning out of control, and her lies were starting to catch up with her.
- She didn’t tell a soul that her daughter was missing, not even her closest friends, and she behaved as if nothing was wrong.
- She avoided her family until they hunted her down and dragged her home kicking and screaming.
- There was human decomposition in the trunk of the car and the DNA most likely was Caylee’s.
- 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.
