People keep asking questions like "Why are so many people interested in the trial of Casey Anthony?" and "Why are so many people paying attention to this?" I don't think the obvious has really been stated yet. People know she killed her daughter. It's without question, and while the jury could acquit her, they won't. People are paying attention to this trial because they need to know that the American system of justice still works. It's completely obvious to everyone what happened, and if the jury were to acquit her, it would mean an absolute breakdown in our faith in the justice system.
I don't think Kaylee Anthony's dead body was put in that trunk. I think Kaylee died in that trunk. Seems Zanny the Nanny is a bottle of chloroform and Casey most likely had used this method more than once. Knock Kaylee out with Chloform, duct tape over the mouth in case she would wake up (can't have her crying or screaming from trunk...someone might hear and then Casey would be caught) and then Casey goes partying for the night..Probably worked for awhile....then the last time when she came back, Kaylee was dead........
