Gotta Watch: Casey's cast of characters

Casey Anthony's murder trial has yielded a bevy of must-see moments.  From an alleged mistress to a woman who thinks her son is Caylee Anthony’s father, you’ve gotta watch the most intriguing people from Casey Anthony’s murder trial.

Casey Anthony as a child – Home video captures a very young Casey Anthony at a child's birthday 20 years before she went on trial.

Where's Caylee’s dad? – It's the question whose answer has eluded many.  Just who is Caylee Anthony's father? One woman is convinced she's the paternal grandmother of Caylee. She claims her deceased son is the toddler's father. Do you believe her hypothesis?

The story of Krystal Holloway – George Anthony's alleged mistress says he may being lying about their romantic relationship, but she doesn't believe he had anything to do with Caylee's death. When she took the stand, she went into detail about their alleged affair.

From flipping ‘bird’ to jailbird – Maybe he was trying to be cheeky or maybe he was upset with proceedings. Whatever the case, the judge gave a man who flipped the finger at a prosecutor six days in jail.  It's probably the costliest bird he's ever seen.

    Now maybe the police will ACTUALLY do the job of looking for the real reason the child died . This case smelled of Jon Bennet Ramsey – hone in one person. Yes , the defense had a right to show outrage against the likes of Grace and Mitchell – HLN was more like the Enquire than a legitmate news agency.
    We do not know what the jury heard that we didn't and they were chosen by the state of Florida and the defense and God Bless them for doing a very difficult decision.

      Media ruined a fair trial. I am waiting for the jury to state such. Nothing else could have resulted in their verdict. The defense claimed it was an accident but did not explain how this "caring family" could place duct tape around the child's face, and throw it in a swamp for animals to consume, all the while, not telling law enforcement what "really happened." Pathetic.

    I am sick. The whole family should be charged. But I learned that you no longer need to bury a body , just wrap it up and dump it in a swamp and I also learned it is ok the lie in court. Our world , our gov't , our justice system has gone to the dogs. Just dump it all in the swamp.

    Why would the courts worry aboout punishing her when they literally let her get away with MURDER!!! As the defense team and the sweet little Casey Anthony are dancing around in the bar across the street, there is still a beautiful baby girl of only 2 years old that is DEAD, killed by someone ( like we all know who did it) and no one is being punished for the murder. This is the most disgusting verdict I have ever heard. It makes me physically ill to think of it. Casey Anthony will go about her life now not having to worry about taking care of a child, so now she can party-hardy all night long. Isn't that nice!! I hope that if, and I say this loosly, If she did not kill her own child then I hope and pray that whoever did do it, that they will suffer with horrible dreams that haunt them for the rest of their lives and beyond. That goes for Casey Anthony as well, just in case she did do it!!!!

    : The question has arisen concerning where could this witch now go to live out the rest of her demented life: to Greenland, of course and the farther into the interior she goes, the less she will be bothered by anything resembling a human being. Of course she will need a Danish passport.

    As a person of faith, here's my thought: A group of warm, loving Christians needs to take her in and give her a chance at a new life. Perhaps she can make her peace with God and seek redemption. I'd rather see her changed and saved rather than destroyed. (By the way, yes, I think she was guilty and I hoped she'd be found guilty, but she wasn't so we must move on.)

    While i am unsure this verdict is a correct one, I have to sit in the jurors shoes.....What actual viable evidence did the state have proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that Casey murdered her own child? I saw NONE. Why are we as a society so quick to jump on the guily wagon when we were not actually there to witness what happen? and in my eyes the state FAILED because they were unable to provide rock solid facts and evidence against Casey......They did NOT have their ducks in a row, instead went ahead with a case with no hairs, no fibers, no DNA, no nothing......we will never know what happen to little Caylee, it is in gods hands now.

      You are right....no hard evidence..no hairs ..no fibers....Just a mother with a month of lies and ....... As a mother, if my child was missing....no lies... I would be asking for all help available. Too many lies here....... You are so right....she has served her time for her lies. Now onto million dollar book deals and what do the mags pay for photo shoots??? Our little Casey has it mad in the shade. Little Caylee.....beautiful and loved by so many of us...alas.....you were a mega money maker for your Mom and interested parties.

    Wow! Not sure how you cloraphorm a child and it is ok. As a Mom...that never crossed my mind....what you were thinking does not cross any Mom's mind. Is it possible that Casey's mind knows what she did but does not find it wrong? Duct tape over her mouth and nose. No reason for her to fight back. Party on Casey....now you are free. So are you free from the nightmares that will be with you forever....and ever. YOUR child....so you want to adopt or have another child? Hmmmmm.... Are you investing in a case of cloraform??? Parenting classes neve suggested using this to calm our children!!!

    Book publishers.....beware...this is not a hot book for you. A child was murdered....have some sense of what is right and wrong and not the dollar amount you can make on this..I am sure you could make a bundle. Do the right thing this time.....please.....

    know though you shouln't break the law... but in reality only the law is lying because they know if you did not they could not put you in jail or prison ... when we say
    you shouldnt break the law... we mean it because we do not want you in jail or prison, the law knows you shouldn't but obviously believe you SHOULD because each and everyone of them
    cannot put you in prison and jail which is something they do if you did not break the law .. the same one 'you shouldn't' when i tell you for instance.. you shouldnt break a toy... than you know
    im honest with my word and there is no 'you shouldnt but you should just so i can do this to ya for it' so their not even real or actually no idea what their doing... cause there is no should and shouldnt...
    they all want you too or think you should because to do what they do which is put people in jail and prison you should... and lie and tell ya you shouldn't, so lets think about that... why on earth would they lie and say
    you shouldnt when they all know that you should because they would not be able to do what they do which is put people in prison and jail if you did not so why shouldnt you when thats what they want...cause the law can do that .
    ya they can sure, but why be such liars, and why in the shell... you shouldnt break the law but dont think about how i really think you should break the law.. so they dont really mean 'dont break the law than' cause meaning dont break the law
    would mean do not want you too. see what it is once i sentence them to hell for being fake, i dont want them having heaven or even knowing anything, they like that 'distance' between they are that distance and you dont wanna get close so they kinda
    go with their distance. you already gettin too close to it tellin it how it doesnt make sense, do not but really want you too.

    everyone knows she killed her daughter that pool accident is bull crap i beleive she was soficated . but like i said the justice in us sucks theres no justice in america i really dont get the law here like the killers and child rapist get away with theyre crimes they plea insane that that gets them out . but you got other stupid felonys that will never add up to this horrible crimes and they end up serving a maximum penalty. i mean it doent sound right cause it isnt right .america needs to change its laws before theres 100 anthony cases . cause that was pretty much a green light for killers . ok this judge didnt convict her but did she forget theyrs a bigger judge above us and that one you cant play with cause he knows the truth and he will see her on judgement day.
