Casey Anthony Trial: Graphic Photos Shown

by at . Comments

Uncomfortable silence gripped the courtroom Thursday as jurors in the Casey Anthony trial were shown graphic photos of 2-year-old Caylee Anthony.

After the judge warned courtroom spectators with "queasy stomachs" to "control their emotions," prosecutors introduced photos taken Dec. 11, 2008.

Taken in the woods near the Anthony family's Orlando home, the grisly images flashed on the screen, while Casey Anthony wept openly in court.

Casey Anthony on Trial

Casey Anthony stands accused of murdering young Caylee. Yesterday, her alleged online searches for chloroform and neck breaking were revealed.

Also testifying Thursday morning was Casey's brother Lee, who was called to the stand by the prosecution for questioning about Casey Anthony's lies.

Lee said that after Caylee's disappearance, Casey told him that her nanny "Zanny" – a.k.a. Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, who both sides now say is a fabrication – and "Zanny's" sister had held her down by her wrists at a local park.

Lee Anthony testified that Caylee said Zanny told her she was taking Caylee because Casey "was not being a good mother" and "to teach her a lesson."

Casey also told her brother that Zanny warned her not to go to the police.

Additionally, Lee testified this morning that Casey told him Zanny was giving her instructions by logging onto Casey's personal MySpace account.

Casey said Zanny had hacked her account and changed the password to "timer55" – 55 being the number of days from when Caylee was taken from her, Casey said, until Caylee's third birthday on Aug. 9.

"Her feeling was that she was going to get her back that day," Lee testified.

When he left the stand, Casey avoided looking in her brother's direction.

I honestly think she did it! No mother would be partying WHILE her daughter is missing, no way. She is two faced, once minute while the jury is in she's sad and crying, the next when the jury leaves, she's smiling and laughing. This woman killed her daugher!She deserves the slowest most painful death there is to give on death row. Please give it to her.

WOW, THIS IS SUCH A BIG JOKE THE LAWYER SHE HAS , HE HAS ONLY TRIED THREE BIG CASES BEFORE THIS ONE AND THEY WERE NOT MURDER TRIALS.
SHE IS A LIAR AND HE IS ALSO ,
GOD HAVE MERCY ON THEIR SOULS . THAT SWEET POOR LITTLE CHILD THAT MANY OF US WOULD LOVE TO HAVE TO CHEERISH AND TO HOLD . I LOVE MY DAUGHTER , NOW 27 AND MY GRAND CHILDREN ( 3 )SOOOO MUCH AND IT HURTS ME WHEN I EVEN HAVE TO CORRECT THEM .
TO DO THIS TO A PRECIOUS CHILD AND THEN LIE ABOUT SOME FAKE NANNY AND ALL THE OTHER CRAP THAT THIS FALSE MOTHER HAS DONE IS JUST UNFORGIVABLE EXCEPT IN GOD'S EYES IF SHE ASK IN TIME , BUT TO THEN TELL ALL THESE LIES AND TO USE A RAG WITH CHLORAFORM ON IT TO KEEP THE CHILD KNOCKED OUT WHILE SHE GOES INTO A BAR AND PARTIES AND LIVE A LIFE UNBECOMMING TO A REAL PICTURE OF WHAT A MOTHER IS . WELL , IT JUST GOES TO SHOW THAT SOME PEOPLE ARE ALL ABOUT THEIRSELVES AND THAT IS IT .
I'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND IT LORD !!!!

"Calling all you angels"...I don't believe in the death penalty...but this case deserves to be the one to whom it truly was intended for....who will protect the innocent...Americans should be outraged...if our system has lost perspective...we are doomed...this one person has ruined so many lives...she reminds me of Charles Manson.

Number one I DO NOT believe her father or brother ever touched her, and even if they did, it has absolutely nothing to do with her murdering her daughter. I hope she is put to death for what she did, but I don't think it will happen. She is so guilty. I have along with most of the majority believed that from day one. I hope she gets what she deserves.
