The Casey Anthony trial

I have followed this case all along, and read the book Mommy's Little Girl by Diane Fanning as well.  it is so sad.  But I will say this trial is unbelieavble. Now mind you, she is entitled to the best defense by Jose Biaz (and I do beleive this) but the defense streches incredulity way past the breaking point for me.  I do beleive she killed Caylee.  I will say that upfront.  But I would hate to be on the jury and listen for days on end to the lies she tells.

Even though we knew it was coming, the claims that her Caylee died accidently by drowning would have not been as bad as that she added the molestation charges against her dad and brother as well.  AND that she says he dad made her lie to cover it all up.  Which doesnt even make sense.  Why would he and Cindy have reported the car and that Caylee was missing then.

And how does a grieving mother whose baby has died go partying and living it up without a care in the world?

We are to believe that her father's power over her was that all-emcompassing?  PLEASE.....

Then they throw in the conspiracy with the meter reader who found the body?  WHAT?  How in the world does he jump into the conspiracy and why?

Then of course, the lies.  The fake job, Zanny the non-existent nanny.  That she was conducting her own investigation?  Like anyone could believe that?  And you investigate by parties and sex?  Again - PLEASE...

And then yesterday, they refute the expert Body Farm testimony regarding decomp fluids in the trunk.  Saying it was from raw hamburger or raw chicken?  WHAT?  Originally she said it was rotten pizza.  Her story changes by the minute to suit her needs only by now how can anyone believe a word she says?

So it comes down to reasonable doubt.  The defense seems to be throwing out as many possiblities as possibel hoping that one will stick enough to create the reasonable doubt.  Of course, nothign I have heard so far has even come close to "reasonable" doubt.  Just ludicrousness.  The sad thing is that FL taxpayers have to finance all this. 

So one wonders, what is next in Baez's magic hat of BS?



  1. Terri, I agree with you. I've stopped watching it because it is just so frustrating. There is no doubt in my mind that she killed her daughter but I don't know if it was accidental or not.

  2. The evidence seems to suggest that it was the duct tape over her mouth that killed her (suffocation) rather than drowning but I dont know. But actually if it WAS accidental drowning (which sadly happens a lot in FL) then all the more reason to call the police right away. There is no reason for all the lies then...

  3. I first became aware of Casey Anthony in 2008 when I was working for survivors of Hurricane Dolly. And as the story continued, I became more and more angry at the lack of care from this person who was supposed to be a mother of a lost child. And the that the trial is going on, and we are seeing even more lies, to her brother, her parents, the police, her friends. I realize Mr Biaz has a difficult job, trying to sell her to a jury as someone for whom they should care. But, in my opinion, Casey Anthony has somehow found the perfect lawyer for herself. I think they are a match made in....somewhere other than heaven.

Upside Down Post:

Yurn your frown upside down into a smile as this post is for those who do not enjoy the family gatherings at Christmas. You know who you are and why but today I thought it would be fun to have a little fun.

This is a "Would you rather" reply when someone asks what you would rather do get through the holidays than spend it with family?

1. I'd rather drop a house on my sister.

2. Have a root canal

3. Eat fruitcake even the store bought kind.

4. Have my neighbor tell me about her colon in great detail

5. Dust

6. Watch my cat chase and kill a mouse

7. Hear the neighbor's dogs barking all night long.

8. Shovel snow

9. Open my prezzies and discover everyone sent me clothes two sizes too small. What is family for but to get the sizes wrong even after they call and ask.

10. I'd rather read a good murder mystery set at Christmas this would make it a killer holiday for me.

Okay you all come up with your own funny list and I can't wait to see what you have. Oh one…

An Interview with Frances Brody

MM: Frances, give us the back story on how and when you became an author?
I started by telling stories. I’d walk home from school with a friend and spin some tale that would last till the parting of our ways at the corner shop. In my twenties, I wrote stories that were published in magazines and broadcast on BBC Radio. I then wrote radio and theatre plays and scripts for television. My first novel was based on stories told to me by my mother.
MM: Tell us about what you are currently writing and what has been released?
I’m editing the eighth Kate Shackleton novel, Death at the Seaside. My setting is Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Whitby is where Bram Stoker has Count Dracula land in the Russian ship Demeter in the shape of a black dog. Dracula doesn’t appear in my story. But if he did, Kate Shackleton and her trusty assistants, Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, would deal with him.My latest release in the US is Kate Shackleton #5, Murder on a Summer’s Day. In the UK, it’s #7, A Death in the…

Review - Yellow as Legal Pads by Fran Stewart

Biscuit and Bob are on their honeymoon when Bob tries to help someone dying with resuscitation efforts that leave him poisoned and in ICU.

The story time hops a lot and introduces a lot of characters and isn't really your typical amateur sleuth asking questions all over town.

It is a series of pieces out of the life of the Holvers family and events that led to the current situation she and Bob are in.

It is interesting and complex at times but satisfying as the pieces come together.

I saw several reviews where the number of characters and time hopping frustrated readers and I admit, I had to pause a few times to make sure I was in tune to everything going on, but I thought it was fun a non-traditional which was a bit refreshing.
