Can I imagine that's what happened? Of course. But it's certainly not the only explanation.
Reasonable people make reasonable logical arguements. Hiding a dead body is not what reasonable people do after an accidental death or people who have nothing to hide. What motivation to hide a body? There has to be some motivation to that person's behavior. But, if accidental, again, why would the guilty party dispose of a body in a swamp in a bag? That method of disposal is what a person would do after witnessing an accident, taking the body to a swamp for disposal? Where is the logic to that?

Lying is not physical evidence, of course, but it is evidence of how people act and their behaviors related to a crime and very important. Why do the police bother interviewing people if it's not "evidence?" This was a circumstantial case.

First people were pissed off because they DIDN'T talk, now people are pissed off because they do.

There is no sense here. I'm spent. See ya at the next "big trial"...as someone said on another thread, when the talking heads tell us what we are supposed to be interested in next.
Which question?

I am pissed that they are making a payday out of talking. However, that's legal so oh well ...

See you at the next "big trial!"

I was talking about her habitual lying, the pattern of lying PRIOR to Caylee's disappearance, not being evidence in this case. It's not like Casey was always honest and straightforward PRIOR to Caylee's disappearance, and then suddenly started lying after the disappearance. That's why her lying after Caylee disappeared was not anything new and not necessarily an indication of guilt of murder.

I know the difference between circumstantial evidence and direct evidence. I know this was a circumstantial evidence case.

There are many reasons why police interview people.

You all will notice he didn't do that in front of Judge Perry. "Slide over, Casey. I got six days for the Hawaiian Good Luck Sign."

It was, however, a money shot. Some paparazzi said something rude and got flipped off. He got the shot he wanted.

Just as I thought. His opinion of the tabloid media.

Who said they were offended? Or that it was aimed at them? All they pointed out was that it was a classless gesture and reflects the professionalism and mentality of the defense team.

Here's a guilty murder verdict based on absolutely no evidence proving the victim was even dead, nor any evidence whatsoever that the person charged with murder had harmed the victim.
