There has been much speculation throughout this forum that the Anthonys will plead the fifth and refuse to testify, whether that be to protect Casey or whether it be to protect themselves from self incrimination. Some people think that will help the defense, others think it will show guilt. Here is what I think: If the Anthonys do not testify, the jury will hear from the following: - 911 Operators who took Cindy's calls concerning the smell of the dead body in the trunk and her statements as to the fact that Caylee had been missing for 31 days but no reports to LE made about this. I'm sure the recordings from those calls are admissible. - Officers who arrived on the scene and were taken on a wild goose chase looking for Zanny's apartment (3 false locations) and to Casey's place of employment (Universal). The recordings from Universal as well. - Investigators who interviewed the parents. Likely the tapes of those interviews will be played. - Amy H and the fact that Casey stole her money while she was on vacation. - Tony L and other friends who were in her life at the time Caylee was missing but never were told that anything was wrong. These people can testify that Casey partied and carried on as if everything was normal. - Photo evidence of Casey's partying during that time. - Proof that Casey got a tattoo while Caylee was missing. - Forensic evidence from the trunk of the car evidencing decomp and death bands on Caylee's hair from that trunk. - Evidence taken from the Anthony's home throughout this time period. - Possible testimony from other family members as to Casey's pathology- stealing from grandparents, lying about her pregnancy. - Testimony from Leonard P and Tim Miller re Casey's obvious lack of concern & cooperation regarding the search for Caylee. - Information taken from Myspace and Facebook - Forensic computer evidence including any manipulations that were done to Casey's laptop. Without testimony from the Anthony family- who would be Casey's only personal defenders, how would all of this evidence be countered? In my opinion, this would only assist the prosecution in proving guilt. There would be no introduction of Zanny actually existing which is imperative to pointing the finger of guilt away from Casey.
