The fascination for me was the jury. They bought the defense story that the child died in the pool and then they put duct tape on her mouth, put her in a garbage bag, and discarded her body in a swamp.
A head shaker, like OJ.
I think the jury was too lazy to think this through. They just wanted to go home to Pinellas county. Her refusal to testify and her damning jail phone conversations are evidence of a guilty conscience.
After a couple of months of going thru all the perverted shit thrown out by both sides, this jury could not stand one more minute of it.
They were by now getting annoyed with each other, some even coming to hate their fellow jurors. There were a few jurors who were for conviction, some for lesser verdicts, and some for acquittal, and it became clear that it would take perhaps months to come to a verdict of guilty.
The solution which would get them home right now and the one which would insure that an "innocent" person would not be punished would be to simply let Casey go.
So thats what they did.
They let Casey go in order to reclaim their lives...they were sick and tired of each other, of the judge, of all the lawyers, looking at the face of Casey and her "family" and absolutely appaling would be having to go thru any of the "evidence" again....
..so there is no justice for Kaylee in this world....
.....justice for Kaylee is in the hands of God.
That’s exactly what the cause of death was. Casey woke up one day, decided she had had enough and wrapped Caylee in duct take alive.
Cause of death: Asphyxiation.
Actually, it has more to do with the incredible stupidity of people who are on juries today. They watch CSI Miami or CSI Idaho or CSI wherever and they demand DNA evidence. Or some kind of scientific expert to pop up and offer irrefutable proof the mother did it. We have jurors weaned on TV to the point, they expect real life to mirror the television shows they watch.
