AC, thanks for great coverage. I am a funeral director and have expierenced working with decomposed bodies and the odor associated with these cases. .In my opinion it would be possible to stop the "purge" with duct tape. Two trash bags encasing the body could prevent body fluids from seeping outside the bags. This would work on the same principle as a "body bag" .
We all know that she killed her own child and made up several lies too. Lock her and call it a day. A this time getting wasted. But i love you people regardless.
The defense is saying the duct tape was put on after decomposition and every one is questioning why this would be done. Did anyone think about the fact that it could make sense if her skin/tissue was falling apart due to decomp in the trunk and the duct tape was used to keep her face together and in tact when moving her from the trunk of the car to the dump site.
This "game" as His Honor Belvin Perry called it today was OVER in the minds of the jury when Mr. Baez question (badgered) George Anthony and then Cindy Anthony on days 1and 2 of the trial about the SMELL in the trunk of the car. Neither would breakdown and say it was the smell of decomposition. Mr. Baez tried over and over to get them to admit that "it smelled like a dead body." Every other witness of the prosecution has been challenged (including the sniffing dogs) by Mr. Baez that a decomposing body was never in that trunk. WHY? Even yesterday, Mr. Baez own witness said from the stand "the trunk smelled 2 years after the fact". A dead body in my car I better be able to explain. This jury got the message within the first few days of this trial. GAME OVER!
i hope that she gets off, not to justify careless manslaughter, but solely as a testimony against the injustices of the trial. honestly, i hope that she repents, and is born again. JESUS did not die so that people should fry—a real day of Judgment is coming.
still believe totally in the Prosecution's work over the 3 years of this case and don't think you'd be in trial if you didn't have the facts and trail of evidence to support it beyond a reasonable doubt and so far the reasons for doubt that the Defense tries to present are all pretty lousy pieces of distraction and distortion. Casey did it, no one else could have or would have wanted to.........
Coverage about THIS trial is getting sickening – so much media and drama!
Caseu should die for what she has done not just taken a precious life but what she has done to her family
