Have you been following the Casey Anthony trial? Even if you weren’t interested, it was hard to miss. But I was interested. I was fascinated. I was right there in the trunk every night following it on Fox News.
It is difficult to believe that small missteps in the investigation allowed what seems like a murder to become a possible accident... reasonable doubt. One of the nights during the trial, there was a forensic consultant on t.v. saying that the prosecution should have tested the flies and maggots in the trunk of Casey's car to see if they had been feeding on little Caylee's dead body. Her DNA would show up in their teensy bug bellies if that were the case.
There were flies and maggots in the trunk of Casey’s car? Hellooooo, I have three year old french fries in the back of my van, along with an assortment of other “leftovers”, but no flies or maggots. I suppose bugs don’t prove a cause of death but they sure do signal that something grosser than a trip to MacDonald's went down.
At the very least the girl is guilty of more than just lying. And everybody knows it. And everybody also knows that she is not only getting away with it, but she is going to profit from it big time. She wouldn’t even dare take the oath and speak on behalf of her drowning story, and yet her lawyer has already hired a hot shot NY agent to help set up the most lucrative talk show deals. Who knows, maybe there will be a book or a movie forthcoming. Then she’ll be all set for the bella vita.
Or maybe not... maybe we could all get out of the trunk of Casey’s car. We could stop ourselves from acting like the maggots who gorged themselves on that rotting baby. We could boycott any shows Casey appears on. We could refuse to purchase any magazines that print her paid story. We could use our collective purchasing power to stop Casey from getting rich off her daughter’s tragic death.
