The very fact that Casey was celebrating that evening, and that she moved in with her boyfriend the very night that Caylee 'drowned' is very telling. She did not miss a beat. She was happy and care free, and I do not think the jury is going to buy the DT's theory that Sexual Abuse made her too weird to grieve over her child's death. I think they are going to conclude she was happy, and not sad after her child 'went missing.'
And the 5 hours of jail tape was a must because they needed to combat the DT's theory that George was an evil monster that she feared. I think they got to see who the real boss was in that household, and who the real monster was. The jury heard her say, dismissively, " All they care about is getting Caylee back." That was huge, imo. Would she have said that if George already knew she was dead? I do not see the DT being able to overcome that moment too easily.
I think it is easier for the jury to imagine Casey moving the body than George doing so. He showed way more emotion and grief and intensity over Caylee than Casey did. The jury got to see and hear that. She came off like a true sociopath, and he did not. imoo
I do not think Baez really 'gave them an option.' It seems more like he made a wild accusation than a valid option. Maybe he will be able to make it seem more realistic when he presents his actual case, and offers his witness testimonies. But if he sticks with Roy Kronk as the one who dumped the body, then she will end up on Death Row, imo.

I don't think she PLANNED the murder months in advance. I think she FANTASIZED the murder months in advance. To me there is a big difference between the two. Casey obviously fantasizes a whoooooooole lot. I think the searches show someone in the midst of fantasizing. The different methods of death are so various because she was enjoying thinking and imagining each scenario. Heck I think she wasn't even sure exactly who she was going to kill, maybe her parents, maybe Caylee, maybe both. She wanted to kill them all that's for sure. In the end I think Casey just killed the person who was easily accessible and easy prey when her rage finally boiled over. And that just happened to be Caylee. I shudder to think what may have happened to George and Cindy if Cindy gave Casey just one more day....
When is Robyn going to testify? I can't wait. Sounds like it could happen this week. Anyone know?
Casey's Pen Pal Returns To Orange Co. Jail
"Investigators said Adams also told them that Anthony would give Caylee "stuff" to make her sleep. Anthony and Adams discussed chloroform, and Anthony told Adams she would give the toddler "antihistamines or something" because she had difficulties getting her to take naps."
Pardon me please! At the risk of sounding like a total duh...me!
Where are the matriarchs in this union of CA and GA?
OK! ICA is a bad seed so to speak. What about mommy and daddy? Why aren't their parents coming forward to support the children they produced?
Where are the great grandparents of that angel and why aren't we hearing ANYTHING FROM THEM?
IMO this speaks VOLUMES! I get why no one supports ICA. NOT ONE FAMILY MEMBER HAS COME FORWARD ...ATTENDED ANY HEARING to my knowledge ...
something stinks BIG TIME on HOPESPRING DR.and it isn't Caylee or ICA.
Those family members know and are PURPOSELY AVOIDING SOMETHING.
but what and why?
I typed out a scenario somewhere on this thead earlier this afternoon where ICA would chloroform her parents while they slept, and make it look like they had been killed in a home invasion & she would pretend to find their bodies. But, I think it is even more likely she had planned on making it look like a murder/ suicide. Remember, she had been telling a lot of people her parents were having major marital problems, that her mother was crazy, that there was too much drama at home, etc.......... [I apologize for the lack of proper paragraphs, but I am trying to type this from my Kindle. Very cumberson] .

I googled for this info...only looked at the site once...but may read up more on the subject on other sites.
It looks like little Caylee had to be deceased about two hours minimum before being laid on the ground by the playhouse, in order for scent to be left there for the dogs to find.
Sorry for the repeat info if this has been addressed already.
ETA Yikes, I've been reading all day and half the night!! I didn't realize it was 4 AM already.

Justice for GEORGE!
It is a nasty case and I recall a time when many here, myself included, thought up scenarios and felt deep resentment towards her family--heck, I think most of the country did.
I can't recall a single case I've followed or watched where there were protesters in front of the home like the Anthony's--not even the JonBenét case with vigil folk.
I still to this day feel like Lee is a punk, even if I feel less harsh towards him now. I didn't feel much for George when he tried to off himself, either. I thought him VERY selfish. (some of this they did with their own behavior, yes, it was stress and crazy unknowing--but was the same for public--it changed for them, it changed for us)
Cindy is a tough nut, not the most likeable but she is the person I've been most angry with, but always held the most understanding and respect for, too. She has pulled the heaviest load, for the longest with this family. I hope she quits pulling soon.
To watch her as just a sobbing head of hair was too much. Her grand baby, her pride-and-joy is gone in the most horrid of ways, now her baby, her precious daughter is on trial for her life.
This is all real life but yet I've been a sick side-line gawker and I pray this woman can find peace. She can't stop loving Casey no matter what Casey has done, she can only blame herself--dear God...help and bless her.
Cindy can't stop her love no more than we can stop the sun from shining, that is what being a mom is about--I only pray Cindy can get some tiny peace when this is all over, I also pray this trial is final and she won't need to keep re-living this nightmare.
I've hated Cindy but I have admired the L out of her, too-- she shows just how defensive and protective a mom will become. Casey has her mother and no matter how wrong---had Casey told the truth--Cindy would have walked hand-in-hand with her through it. Even if she had hurt/killed Caylee.
Casey was too selfish, self absorbed and fearful (loss of ego fear, not torture) Casey would rather let let parents be tortured, humiliated, her child die--than suffer one discomfort real or imagined. Hell, "chew her arm off" to get away from her daughter.
God bless Cindy, her family, and may He give Casey just what she deserves.
Anything and everything I type, is all just my opinion.
We know Cindy's father is in a nursing home and the other great grandparents have to be up there in years as well - in their 70s at the least, I would think. For that reason alone, I can cut them some slack for staying out of the public eye. IMO
JB may begin his case by saying his opening statement .. was all made up.
Fiction. Complete fabrication..
And proceeds to spin The REAL opening, that fits around the prosecution evidence.
My ticker would pop. hee!
So much evidence yet to come..
By closing, it will all be orderly and organised by day and time, down to the minute.
And I hope it's all on a SUPER mega flip note pad.. Just to make others envious.
While computer forensics, cell pings, tattoos, fusian,
the burial site and all its accoutraments from home,
grave wax napkins, trusted canine searchers, are considered
as circumstancial evidence, the important thing to remember,
is that this is a PREPONDERANCE..of circumstancial..
gargantuan proportions ot it..
I don't need to see the cookie thief,
if I can see the chair pushed next to the cookie jar,
a small sock next to said chair..
a trail of cookie..
leading to cookie face..
Day 14 in just a few hours..Hang in there, Y'all.
From the Orlando Sentinel:
Honest, before the trial, I didn't think she did it," says Maria Hodges, who arrived before dawn to secure one of the general-public seats. "But being here changes my perspective. I could see the coldness in her face. Her eyes looked really dark. You don't see that on television." http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/...,615741.column
