    Who was the most effective defense witness?

    Setting aside the conspiracy theories about the jury colluding and agreeing to a not-guilty verdict in order to make $ on books/TV and/or go home as soon as possible, and giving them the benefit of the doubt that they did follow the jury instructions, who do you believe was the most effective non-Anthony witness for the defense case as far as influencing this jury, in the grand scheme of their decision (verdict)?

    All the prosecution witness who testified on cross examination that they saw no evidence of neglect, that Casey seemed like a good mother.

    This is a trick question, right?

    George. He did a great job of hesitating, arguing with Baez and overall appearing guilty.

    Since the alternate that has spoken indicated they ignored any of the 31 days due to family dysfunction.

    Didn't believe the body was in the trunk - so forensics didn't count.

    Said that GA seemed shifty (whoops thats family).

    Then concluded that it was an accident that was covered up -----my answer is Jose Baez, since he was the one that delivered the opening statement and the jury appeared to have developed their own theories/versions of this story, then ignored evidence that refuted it, accepted testimony of RC and JB, and didn't bother to look for any evidence of the accident theory.

    They appear to have ignored the SA from the moment of JB's OS, must go see what the state may have said in OS that turned them off.

    I didn't vote in the poll, but I'll say Casey Anthony. Everyone wanted her to take the stand and now that we know what we know, I think she would of incriminated herself even more so (to the point that some on the jury probably would go the other way).

    I believe the A's were the most effective witnesses for the defense......and I think the jury thought so too. So, I didn't vote.
    If there's hink....there must be stink.

    GA & CA's testimony was obviously the most effective in convincing the jury that they were in deed a lying dysfunctional family and therefore their daughter should be excused from murdering her child (their grandchild). Sick, Sick, Sick.

    You know what I find really ironic? George was the only one of the Anthonys (IMO) that actually wanted to see Casey pay for what happened to Caylee, but ultimately his testimony is what ended up leading to the not guilty verdict. I feel bad for him. I don't understand why the jury didn't see that George acted that way with Baez b/c of what Baez (and Casey) had accused him of in opening statements. I don't blame George for acting the way he did on the stand. And I also don't understand how the jury could see how that man broke down on the stand and think that he had anything to do with Caylee's death or a cover up. I honestly just don't get it. And it makes me wonder how much critical thinking (or just plain thinking) the jurors used in coming to their opinions and ultimate decision. MOO.

    River...showing GA a liar

    and

    Kronk moving the remains. And, showing that the LE might have been able to prove something if they had retrieved the body when Kronk first told them.

    I think it's both. River helped paint the pic that GA is a liar.

    George Anthony. I think GA's hesitation and failure to admit the simplest of facts led the jury to conclude there was an accident. I am beside myself at the verdict. If they decided there was no homicide, the jury did NOT perform their duties. They ignored ALL of the evidence in favor of NO evidence for an accident.
