And what kind of person does that while their child is missing?

I wonder if jurors were subconsiously empathetic to Casey and mom--just not wanting to convict because she's a young, pretty girl and feeling empathy towards the mom. Maybe not aware of that consciously though. I think these jurors only chose to see what they wanted. Not the pattern and putting the story together. A dysfunctional jury?

I was thinking about this last night. I'm wondering if the father of Caylee could do this. I know the father has never been identified. And all we have is Casey's word that he was killed in an auto accident.

But if he is identified (through DNA) and he is alive could he sue her in civil court? If he is dead could his parents (the child's grandparents) sue Casey for wrongful death? Heck, could the Anthony's sue their daughter for wrongful death?

Any of our legal experts know?

Exactly, the defense stated Caylee died in the pool on June 16, 2008. If it was an accident, why would anyone put a body in the car, drive around with it and party like a rock star for a week or more until she was able to dump the body ? And not call 911 for a possible revival ? And if she was such a good and loving mother, would she not want to give Caylee a decent burial instead of dumping her in the woods like trash ? This is the biggest miscarriage of justice in Florida history ! Thank God I believe in karma ...

She wasn't on trial for being a bad mom. She was on trial for murder.

An estranged father can file suit for the wrongful death of his child (for any lawyers out there the citation is Wilcox v. Jones, 346 So.2d 1037).

Grandparents do not have standing to sue.

The fiance of Casey (who was told that he was Caylee's dad but later found out differently) was on TV. He said that it was PROVEN in court that Casey left with Caylee. Again, Casey had her last unless Casey gave her to someone else.

I can't imagine dumping a child in the woods. I couldn't even dump a pet in the woods. We bury our pets, keeping them close to home.

Why kind of person dumps their child in the woods? At least she could have buried her in her own backyard.

There is a lot of dirty laundry in this family.

For those of you who want to better understand more of the details of May, June, and July 2008, here are some very detailed timelines - so much info in these- it really sheds a lot of light on the Anthony family and Casey's behavior patterns. Again, I continue to be astounded by how extensive her pattern of lying is, as well as some of the interesting details about George and Cindy's relationship.

DewDropInn - you have raised some excellent questions and points...so, let's presume [smile] that once again, a lie was given re: the dad. I am wondering, actually hoping, that he will in fact step up to the plate - say who he is, have a DNA/paternity test and if he is the father, that he sue for wrongful death. Of course, what will undoubtedly happen, bless the sensationalism of the press and, of course Casey's attorneys.... they will say..."sure he is the father, BUT he was not willing to step up to the plate and take responsibility for being the father and the only reason he is doing that now is to collect money because he never cared about this child"...mark my words, that is what will be said about him....

And, whether or not the above is right, or not...I would like to think that as the father, he would step up to the plate and sue for what could be some justice for that victim, that victim, being the child. Any mechanism to hold this mom accountable for her actions. And, even if it were accidental, for the sake of argument, accidentally drowning in the pool, and then panic setting in, better to have one of those people in that household contact the police and say, hey, we need your help....our child / grandchild accidentally drowned in the pool. And, there would have been an investigation and after the standard procedures, undoubtedly it would have been determined that it was an accident.

I am NOT saying that it was - I am saying that had it been, medical procedures would have been able to prove it, or, not. Perhaps they were all worried about the 'or not'.
