Casey Anthony : Did her defense go too far ?


Did Jose Baez’s opening statement in the Casey Anthony case seem aimed at people who believe in conspiracy theories?

Conspiracy theories are a staple of our culture, from the John F. Kennedy assassination to Barack Obama’s birth, from Area 51 to “The X-Files.” I’ve heard from readers who thought Baez went too far by stringing too many outlandish points together, and Nancy Grace agreed this morning on “Good Morning America.”

“If Tot Mom Casey Anthony had stuck with a straight accident defense, saying that she was negligent and the child drowned and then she panicked, didn’t want to tell her mother and hid the crime to make it look like a murder, she would have fared better,” Grace said.

Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her daughter, Caylee.

Anthony damaged her defense by alleging that father George Anthony disposed of the body and that mother Cindy Anthony left a ladder attached to the pool, allowing Caylee access, Grace added.

Another problem for the defense? Both parents did “exceptionally well” on the stand last week, Grace said.

On “Today,” former prosecutor Susan Filan said the defense had gone “in a very difficult direction” with this “all-or-nothing strategy” that you either have to believe everybody else or Casey Anthony. “They’ve painted themselves into a very bad corner, and they’re in a tough spot now,” Filan added.

The trial continues Tuesday morning. On “Good Morning America,” Ashleigh Banfield provided a preview. “Both sides are agreeing that Casey was lying all along, but the question now is really what the jurors are going to think Casey was trying to hide,” Banfield said. Banfield noted that George and Cindy Anthony have walked by Casey without making eye contact or mouthing words to their daughter.

“Just know the jury is taking that all that in,” Cynthia McFadden added.

On “GMA,” Grace noted that when “Cindy Anthony broke down on the stand, ‘Tot Mom’ was sitting there shaking her head no, no with a stone face.”

But on “Today,” Filan predicted that the jury will decide the case on evidence. She predicted the prosecution will continue to build its case brick by brick while that the defense had put forth such a strong theory that it had something to prove.

On Fox News’ “Geraldo at Large” on Sunday, Geraldo Rivera was struck by how much lack-of-remorse evidence was introduced at trial. He rated as “slim” the chances of a guilty verdict being upheld on appeal.

But in a good panel discussion, former prosecutor Joey Jackson told Rivera, “The problem is that Jose Baez opened the door. He asked questions about the mother’s good character and whether she was a good mother.” And Jackson noted that when Baez moved for mistrial, Chief Judge Belvin Perry reminded the attorney: You asked about Anthony’s mothering.

Judge Alex Ferrer told Rivera that the lack-of-remorse evidence shows consciousness of guilt.

Rivera responded that the evidence seemed more to show ”consciousness of irresponsibility.”

Prosecutor Stacey Honowitz agreed with that point, but added that Anthony’s demeanor was all relevant at trial and predicted there would be a capital-murder conviction.

“Let’s put some money on that,” Rivera said.

Casey Anthony: Opening statements


Nearly three years after the murder of 2-year-old Caylee Anthony, her mother's day in court has finally arrived.

The highly anticipated murder trial against Casey Anthony began promptly at 9 a.m. Tuesday as Chief Judge Belvin Perry called the jury of five men an seven women from Pinellas County into Courtroom 23, on the highest level of the Orange County Courthouse.


Prosecution's opening statement
Casey burst into tears as prosecutor Linda Drane-Burdick described the last day Caylee Anthony was seen by her grandparents.

The prosecutor said Casey Anthony's appearance as a hard-working single mother was an illusion, recounting what Casey allegedly told her parents she was doing during the 31 days Caylee was missing before it was reported, and what Drane-Burdick said evidence will show Casey was really doing during that time.

As she went through each of the 31 days, Drane-Burdick repeated the question: "Where was Caylee?" She ultimately said the toddler died from duct tape placed over her mouth and nose.


Casey's bombshell defense
Mystery has surrounded the Casey Anthony case since Caylee first disappeared in June 2008.

Why did Casey wait so long to report her daughter missing? What was in the trunk of her car? And how will her lawyers defend her against charges of murder?

After court returned from recess for lunch, defense attorney Jose Baez unleashed a series of bombshells, pointing the finger Casey's father, George Anthony:

Baez claimed Caylee drowned in the Anthony family's swimming pool.
This is the first time any of the case's key players announced a cause of death. He said Caylee died June 16, 2008, the day after the Anthonys claimed they last saw her alive.

Baez claimed George Anthony sexually abused Casey when she was 8 years old.
He claimed this is the root of Casey's tendency to lie to authorities, and "If she goes in lying her butt off, who's going to believe a liar, especially when she cries sexual abuse?"

Baez also claimed Casey's brother, Lee Anthony, also tried to sexually abuse Casey years ago.

Baez claimed George helped Casey cover up Caylee's death.
He also mentioned Casey's parents tried to cover up Casey's pregnancy, and that this "bizarre family behavior" was a pattern.

Baez did made it clear that George Anthony was not to blame for Caylee's death, calling it "an accident that snowballed out of control."

Baez claimed Roy Kronk took Caylee's body and hid it.
He said the "morally corrupt" meter reader wanted to collect the reward for finding Caylee's body. But according to Baez, Kronk "didn't read the fine print," that the reward was for an alive Caylee Anthony.

According to Baez, Kronk went into the wooded area on Aug. 11, 2008, allegedly to urinate, and told his co-workers he found a skull. But when his co-workers started walking into the woods, they were distracted by a dead snake.

Baez claimed Roy Kronk told his son overseas "I found Caylee. Watch for me on TV."
He said Kronk's son will testify that this conversation with his father happened on Dec. 10, 2008, the day before he called 911 to report finding human remains in the woods.

Baez claimed that the so-called "smell of death" in Casey's car came from garbage left in the trunk.
Casey's attorney said she put trash in her car trunk to drive to the dumpster at her then-boyfriend, Tony Lazzaro's apartment complex. But she forgot, and later ran out of gas, leaving the car at the Amscot for days before George Anthony eventually picked it up.

"The most important thing you'll hear on the 911 tape is silence."
Baez told the jurors they will hear Cindy Anthony yell to George that Casey said "Zanny the Nanny" took Caylee, followed by silence.

He said George Anthony later said in sworn testimony that he was not home during that 911 call.

George Anthony had a mistress who gave him money so he could pretend to be working.
Baez said the jury will hear from a Crystal Holloway, who will testify that she had an affair with George Anthony, and when she asked him what happened to Caylee, he replied, "It was an accident."


State's first witness: George Anthony
Following a brief recess, prosecutor Jeff Ashton called the state of Florida's first witness: Casey Anthony's father.

Just minutes after being accused of molesting his daughter and covering up his granddaughter's death, George Anthony took the witness stand and denied both claims.

Ashton walked George through his life before Casey's pregnancy and Caylee's birth, including meeting Cindy, fathering Lee and Casey, and moving to Florida from Ohio in 1989.

George then described life with Caylee, saying she was an extremely bright little girl who called him "JoJo."

He said at the time Caylee disappeared, he was working security for a company in Altamonte Springs, Sundays through Thursdays on the afternoon shift.

Questioning then turned back to Casey, when George said he wanted to believe that his daughter was employed at Universal Orlando Resort, like she said. But Jose Baez's questioning for the defense later revealed George doubted Casey's previous employment with the Sports Authority.

George confirmed that Casey had told him a woman named "Zanny" was watching Caylee. During cross-examination, he also confirmed that he never met the alleged nanny, and never thought it was necessary to do so.

Then Ashton began asking George about June 16, 2008 -- the date Baez said Caylee drowned. George, however, said he spent a "typical" morning with Caylee as Casey got ready to head off to work. After that, he said he never saw Caylee again.

In Baez's cross-examination, George said he did not confirm Casey was pregnant until around three months before Caylee was born. Baez asked if before that, George thought Casey just had a "beer belly."

George said he had a feeling Casey might have been pregnant before she and Cindy sat him down and actually told him. He said he believed Casey was retaining water, and claimed she had put on weight in the past when she was active in athletics.

After court was put in recess, Anthony family attorney Mark Lippman released the following statement:

George and Cindy Anthony are shocked and appalled that the defense would resort to lies about them in today's opening statement.

Baez's idle speculation today certainly are not facts. The only result achieved by the defense in this statement was to further hurt this grieving family.

George Anthony maintains that he never had anything to do with the death of Caylee Marie Anthony, including what happened to her remains after she allegedly drowned. The sworn testimony given today shows that he has never wavered about his knowledge regarding these events. He, like the rest of the Anthony family, only seeks the truth about what happened to their granddaughter.

Caylee and Madeleine, their remains moved in the boot of a car.

Martin Grime now works in America with his dogs, in over two hundred cases Martin's dogs have never failed. Martin has been told NOT to discuss the McCann case. The death of Madeleine , covered-up by the highest order in the British Goverment. Good to see the USA likes to see justice for small innocent children.


The Attracta Harron case....remains found by cadaver dogs.

Casey Anthony: Mum murdered daughter with sticky tape..Defence say it was a case of drowning

Cadaver dogs allowed as evidence 'powerful indicators'....explanation for cadaver scent found in boot of car...rotting pizza!


Monday, May 16, 2011

Casey Anthony trial soon to begin Caylee will see justice.

Sadly a little girl in England, her name , Madeleine will not be so fortunate, political interference and her parents clout with the Goverment stopped an entire investigation. For those who may be interested here are the police files to browse. AND thats just about as much justice as Madeleine will ever receive.

Casey Anthony claimed cadaver found was from rotting Pizza. Kate also had a list of possibilites from rotting meat to spilt fish oil...Kate has had time to think and do her studies, the dogs she now claims were just plain wrong ! Arrogance does not come into it.


Casey Anthony: Judges opening remarks brings tears to casey.

It is so very hard to watch these two mothers lying their way through life. I do not believe in the death penalty but I wish for justice for these two small children who did not deserve the mothers they got.

Kate McCann, is telling the most outragous lies that it is an insult to the people of Portugal who took time from work to search and this pathalogical liar now claims she searched for her daughter...video footage says otherwise.



Casey Anthony mugshot...


Casey Anthony and Kate McCann.

Two woman who are pathological liars, the sad part ,Kate will never be put on trial for the loss of Maddie, unlike Casey. However, you may be intersted to read how she explains away the police investigation and any evidence that implicates her... in her new book 'her account of the truth'.

Kate McCann had good contacts plus a lot of help from the British Goverment to cover her mess, if not , she would now being doing time.

Casey Anthony and Kate McCann. Cadaver indicated to a dead body, both mothers claim their child had been abducted!


Tuesday, May 3, 2011

Casey Anthony case becomes focus of new HLN daily show (video).

Kate McCann soon to sit on American TV sofas and tell the exact same story as told by Casey Anthony ...in both cases cadaver dogs indicated.  Not sure if this is a wise time to sit and discuss alleged child abduction when the Anthony case is so high profile in the States...the dogs have been reported as 'powerful indicators'...


Casey Anthony trial...

Expected to begin May 17th....

Casey Anthony /Kate McCann..mothers replies when cadaver is found.

The innocent mother would reel with shock and horror but not these two mothers, they have answers for the dogs 'indicating'. Casey explained  a possible dead squirrel, rotting pizza.....The McCanns had a whole list of reasons, rotting meat, dirty soiled nappies, spilled fish juice, last but not least Madeleines dirty pyjamas thrown into the back of the car or maybe her sweaty sandals. The inconsistency being that later, the arrogance of the husband, Gerald McCann claiming the dogs were 'incredibly unreliable' if they were so unreliable why did the McCanns try to explain away the odour picked up by the dogs and why did they see it necessary to fly to the States the moment they became suspects to check out a case where cadaver dogs were used ?
