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.

For one thing,how did she wind up in the woods with duct tape on her,if she drowned why did she not know she was missing for 2 weeks,I could never be a defence attorney,how can you defend someone like that

Her lawyers are doing whatever they can to keep Ms Anthony out of the death chamber. I dont doubt she 'borrowed' the whole drowning idea from a cellmate. This woman doesnt have a truthful bone in her body. Shes a true narcissist.
