    I think casey is as guilty as sin. I also, think Lee helped her hide the lilltle Caylee Anthony's body. I don't think George and Cindy had any idea what was going on, until Cindy overheard Casey telling Lee Caylee had been missing for 31 days. I hope and pray Kaylee Marie Anthony will get justice served. Who ever killed her deserves to fry. I believe in what the Bible say, An eye for an eye. This beautiful little girl died a horrible death, and her so called mother killed her. I don't think Casey Marie Anthony deserves to be called a mother. Because a real mother would not have done such an horific thing to her daughter.

      Why would Casey tell Lee she has been missing for31 days if he helped her hide the body ?

    Articles written about Judge Perry canceling, 06/25/11 Saturday's trial proceedings are INCORRECT in that the Judge took ONLY THE DEFENSE TEAM AND casey anthony behind closed doors for a long long period of time NOT the Prosecution. They remained out front at their desk.

    BTW casey anthony was the first to come out, totally engulfed in tears~~~the REAL kind, not her usual phony water works!!

    Can anyone realy belive Cindy a nurse supervisor would have to look up alcohol and hydrogen procide on a her home computer. Hospitals like all places of employment must have MSDS for all employees to review any time they want. Any nurse who says different is not one I would want caring for me.

    Color me dumb, but I cant make sense out of the Prosecution or the Defense. It appears that they each help the others case. It seems to me that either which way that Caylee might have died, be it Homicide, or Accident, all of the facts presented by the Prosecution could hold true for the Defense. If the Defense theory is true, couldn't it be that they stored the body, eventually moving it in Casey's car where by then there was bound to be some decomposition, which would explain it in the car. It doesn't have to be murder in order for decomp to be there, as they had to eventually move the body from point A to point B. I saw a commentator say that George Anthony's concern for Caylee in one of the Jail Tapes proved he was a loving Grandfather. But he knew those conversations are taped. I felt he really laid it thick for the occasion. I think that Caylee's death was an accident, but that doesn't excuse what was done with the child afterwards. After watching the whole family on the stand, I think there is something just not right with all of them, and Casey would have acted like she did regardless of the manner of death. I don't think she will get the death Penalty however. I think she will get life without parole. Case aside, I hope I am never in a position to be in a court of law. There is no Justice there. It's all a matter of opinion of a few clever people hoping to sway a jury. How can you have "experts" from both sides examining the same evidence and coming away with such totally different opinions? It's scary if you ask me. It's nothing more than the battle of the Attorneys, and who can win. The defendant doesn't even count any more, it's just a game.

    Maybe Casey and her Mothers issues arise from George molesting Casey as a child. there are a lot of cases where the mother is jealous of the child if the Father/Husband shows that sort of attention.
