    "Can you tell me how Caylee died? Is there DNA that links Casey to the scene? Is there anything beyond (admittedly grotesque) stories of how Casey partied soon after her daughter disappeared and her searches for terms such as "chloroform" online?"

    Someone's been watching too much CSI. 1. Expecting a definite cause of death on a body discovered as long after death as this one is simply ridiculous.

    2. There is not always DNA evidence. DNA evidence, when present, is not always reliable. DNA evidence is not necessary for proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

    3. There is a strong collection of circumstantial evidence combined with the ridiculous nature of the defense's case. Circumstantial evidence alone (without a *shred* of direct evidence) can indeed be sufficient to prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt.

    This verdict is a combination of juror stupidity and the CSI effect.

    Hey Kinsu - If it was up to you Scott Peterson would still be
    walking free. Circumstantial evidence is used in almost all murder cases. Very few murders have someone video taping the act.

    Why would any mother throw her baby away like trash and then lie about her being taken. the lies were to throw everyone off. She's
    a bad seed. Accusing her father of molestation and then not taking
    the stand to prove it? All a smokescreen by fatman Baez.
    Casey was the last one seen with Caylee, who else threw her into
    the marsh, by the way, where she had buried 2 of her pets in similar fashion. Get real girl.

    Unless ALL the jurors have photographic memories, how could they possibly remember ALl that evidence, since they NEVER asked to see, hear or look at any of it? These jurors were LAZY, wanted to get home and deliberated on things that were not evidence or proven...that was rule number one. They were told to ONLY consider the evidence and yet, they somehow think George Anthony did what the defense accused him of? NOT PROVEN! The Scott Peterson jurors had far more intelligence than the Casey Anthony jurors did and that trial was pretty much circumstantial as well. What were they thinking would be left after 6 months of laying in a swampy area after a tropical storm blew through? Wonder if they even know what 'connect the dots" means? They Failed a child, the justice system and the public!

    This was a self-serving jury...looking to make big bucks...and that EVIDENCE is crystal clear!!! A shocking verdict sells!! There is only one True Justice..GOD...and just as that lightning struck that tree where little Caylee's remains were found--is PROOF beyond any doubt that they will all get what's coming to them!!! People let us all use our common sense...DON'T BUY ANY BOOKS, OR MOVIE TICKETS OR SUPPORT ANY TV SHOWS THAT WANT TO INTERVIEW ANY OF THESE SCUMBAGS...DUHFENSE LAWYERS OR JURORS!!!

    12 Idiots.

    The jury did not ask to see any transcripts or evidence. I don't believe 12 jurors would have believed there was not enough to convict when every other prosecutor in the US believed there was. They are sick to their stomachs? Good, you should be. You made the choice, you live with it. Let's see how many get book deals now. That should tell you what was more important to them.

    These 12 jurors would probably have set Philip & Nancy Garrido free as well!
