Did Casey Anthony Steal Defense Drowning Theory From Fellow Con?

by at . Comments

The first day of the Casey Anthony murder trial featured the stunning defense claim that 2-year-old Caylee Anthony drowned in the family pool.

"It's a common tragedy," lawyer Jose Baez said during opening statements, implying it was a mere accident and Caylee was not killed by Casey.

Is there any way that's not bogus? As it turns out, the story is common to at least one fellow inmate in the Orange County Jail housing Anthony.

Casey A.

The prosecution has already presented its case. Now it's the defense's turn to posit a defense of Casey Anthony. How does this development fit in?

In a hearing Tuesday, prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick said Casey Anthony was in a cell next to an inmate named April who had a similar story.

The State of Florida received a tip that April's young son drowned in the family pool and that his body had been discovered by a grandfather.

Of course, there's one rather significant difference between April's story and the Casey Anthony case: April immediately reported the drowning.

Upon hearing of April's story, Anthony shook her head and whispered to one of her attorneys. It wasn't clear what was said in that exchange.

The jury had already left the courtroom and did not hear of the potential new witness. But should Anthony be concerned about this revelation?

Not necessarily. The state has yet to establish that Anthony and April have ever spoken, although an investigation into the matter continues.

She is guilty. What mother would ever wait 31 days to report her child missing. And even then it was the grandmother who reported her missing. I know how I feel if my son and daughter are out of my site for more than a few seconds. I sure would not be out partying if one of my children were missing. She is definitely guilty

She is definitely guilty. Everything points to her! I'm not with the death penalty because it won't bring her back, but I do hope there is justice.

Dear Casey, I believe you killed your daughter and if for some reason she did die in a pool why would you not report it, hmmm what were you doing wrong at that time that you didnt fess up. As far as I concerned you did it and should be put to death for the harm you have caused your innocent child...and if you dont get the death sentence have fun in prison child killers dont to well there. yours truly, sick to my stomach

We do not judge this woman. Yet the Bible says those who kill must be killed and those who lead into captivity must go into captivity. If she is found guilty she will deal with American justice. I believe nothing happens without the creators will. It won't bring back the baby. Sad
