In the news today (North American version)

A thread about news from Canada and America ...just because it gets lost somewhat in the other thread.
The big news here is the Casey Anthony trial.

This case is very puzzling to me. On one hand, everything seems to point to Casey killing her daughter. On the other hand, photos of her and Caylee together show something else. They show a mother who loves her little girl so much and looks SO happy. I just don't know what to make of all of this.

There have been so many twists and turns in this case, people like Casey's boyfriend or possibly her ex boyfriend, saying there were never any signs that Casey would ever do such a thing as kill her daughter, yet things are all so vague in many ways.

I had a theory the other day, especially after finding out that George Anthony, Casey's father and Caylee's grandfather, who they all lived with, has an anger issue. An anger so bad that he put his own father through a plate glass window at a car lot his father owns. His father fired him on the spot. But why was he even there when he is or was a police detective in Ohio before moving to Florida? Why did he leave the police force and why didn't he apply for work in that field in Florida? This doesn't make sense but the anger issue might. What if it was George who killed Caylee, not Casey and since everyone, police included, think Casey did it, could he be making up all this crazy stuff to not only cover for himself but try and protect Casey as well? We will probably never know the truth because he's all over the place with his statements and so is Casey. What if Casey is lying all the time because she's protecting her father?

I sorta doubt it but there's no way to tell until they do or don't wind up doing it.

It's also a damned shame the police who were notified about that bag in the woods, WEEKS before they finally did something about it, didn't do something immediately. That could have proven the actual manner of death of Caylee. Now it's too late, apparently. They can't determine an exact cause of death. Someone in the court pointed out a reason why the tape wasn't put on Caylee's mouth before she died but afterwards. I don't remember who that was or why they said it.

TBH, I feel like the whole family is in on it, or at least George, the father/grandfather, and Casey but I don't know who did what, or why.

It's hard to catch up, not sure where to start. I will be watching closely tommorow if possible.

It looks like there wasn't any DNA on the duct tape. Hmmm...

St. Petersburg, Florida - It was the day Casey Anthony's defense team had been waiting for.

Dr. Werner Spitz, a former medical examiner, who performed a second autopsy on Caylee's remains, took the stand to begin to lay out his theory that Caylee drowned.

Casey Anthony is accused of suffocating her daughter, Caylee, 2, with duct tape and dumping the body in the woods near her family's home in 2008.

The defense says Caylee's drowned in the family pool.

Dr. Spitz said he cannot rule out that Caylee died accidentally, although he admitted he could not determine a cause or manner of death.

He said that he believes the duct tape found with Caylee's remains was probably put there after the body had decomposed, perhaps to keep the lower jaw attached to the rest of the skull.

"If the duct tape was attached to the face, there would have been DNA from the face on the duct tape," Dr. Spitz said.

Casey Anthony hid her face in her hand and started crying as her defense team showed Spitz a picture of the inside of Caylee's skull.

Spitz explained that he had to cut open Caylee's skull to conduct his second autopsy, noting that it is standard protocol and should have been done in the first autopsy.

Good idea for a thread! This board is obviously very Brit-centric and it's hard for us to relate to your news in the other thread.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... :P

Here's what I REALLY don't get. Unless Caylee really drowned in the family pool like George and Casey and maybe Cindy (don't know what she has to say about it) say, then why aren't any members of the family, Casey especially, demanding that the killer of Caylee be found? None of them have ever even hinted at that, as far as I know.

If the medical examiner who performed the 2nd autopsy is correct, there would be no DNA because all body tissue was gone by the time the body was found. And he's saying the duct tape was put there after the body had decomposed in order to hold the jaw bone to the skull.
