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.

And, how is finding a child with duck tape, in a bag, in the swampy woods congruent with an "accident'? It doesn't cut the "accident theory." If an accident, you'd either call the police, stating an accident, or worse case scenario of not wanting to call police for some very odd reason, bury the child at home/near home. The way the remains were found doesn't suggest a plausible accident scenario as the one alternative juror suggested. An "accident" is not plausibly logical.

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 ...
There was conflicting scientific testimony about whether there was ever a body in that car, and if there was, how long it was in there. We also know Casey didn't have exclusive use of the car. Her parents had a set of keys. Also there was no testimony about who dumped the body in the woods. The only evidence about that was the presence of duct tape which George Anthony used quite frequently.

There was also testimony that Casey and her mom argued about how carefully she watched Caylee. It is possible that Casey didn't want her mother to know her daughter had died.

This is all speculation but the prosecution never presented evidence to foreclose the possibility. That's the central problem. We were asked in the case to use evidence to find out what Casey was thinking. And then use that to show she could only think one way because she committed murder. The reality is people do things for many different reasons, and there were other plausible explanations.

There was some evidence presented during trial that there was decomp in the back yard. There was also testimony about the ground being too hard to dig through.

Also, it was never established that Casey threw the body in the woods. That would be pure speculation. Even if she did, it doesn't rule out accident.

The fact that you acknowledge someone could plausibility want to hide their child's death suggests doubt.

There was no proof other than the word of Cindy and Gorge.

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'.
I know many parents (mine, for example) that would believe they would be charged with child abuse if their kid drowned in a pool regardless of whether they were careful parents. In fact, they would expect it. The problem with the Casey Anthony case is we could not know for sure what happened from the evidence, alone.

Uh, "bad mom"? A bad mom feeds her kids cookies for breakfast and let's them watch tv all day. Driving around with your child's corpse in the trunk of your car makes you evil.

Tim Miller, Director of EquiSearch, is on HLN. He has stated that they are looking at their options regarding a lawsuit. EquiSearch spent $112,000. on the search for Caylee. (Other families asked for help at this time and were denied because all resources were in Florida.)

In his opening statement Jose Baez stated Caylee was "not missing" those 31 days. Miller states EquiSearch may sue Casey, Baez and possibly the Anthonys to recoup money spent on the search.

Ok, so she wasn't on trial for being evil.

Feel better now?

Did he say what grounds he would sue on?

don't be patronizing...........yes she kind of was on trial for being evil. Only someone so vile and evil could have killed the innocent child then drove around with the body in the trunk like garbage.
