Inspired by a post strawberry made: Lots of back and forth on all these threads about the facts of the case, which is part of what makes this such a great site. But I am interested to hear what got folks involved in Caylee's case in the first place. There are so many intelligent, insightful WSers from Florida to Alaska who have clearly given a great deal of time to considering what happened here--let's talk a little about what brought us here, without trying to solve anything. For me, I was following a case from my home state on the MSM news. Googled for more info and WS came up. I had run across it before accidentally but never really explored (honestly it intimidated the heck outta me for a long time!). As I began lurking and tracking the efforts of folks on my home state case I became aware of how skilled and how generous WSers are. Caylee's case was featured on the front page--I'd never heard about the Anthonys before that--and I started by scanning the posts on her forum after visiting the other. After many months of lurking I decided to dive in, as it were. I've never regretted it. What keeps me here is the dedication and passion that posters show for bringing justice to Caylee. I have said this before and I really mean it--there is SO MUCH energy here supporting finding out what really happened to Caylee that her family was not able or willing to provide. I've read so many posts where folks share personal details that shed light on what has gone on in this case, and I honor the sleuthers who have shared their experiences so that we all have a broader understanding. I've come to admire the skills, humor, insights, and challenges that posters have brought to the table in this admittedly tangled case. And perhaps most of all... I want to know what happened to Caylee. It infuriates me to have so many questions still up in the air--even after the 31 days and the "it smells like there's been a dead body in the d*** trunk!" Super non-factual thread and mods I know this may end up in the parking lot. Still, very interested to hear other WS'ers "how I got here" stories. Much respect to all who have done so much work on this case and others.
