Casey also lied about leaving Caylee with a babysitter who was never Caylee’s nanny. On top of all the lying that Casey Anthony did to the investigators, the cadaver dogs found the scent of decomposition in Casey Anthony’s trunk and in the backyard
Per to detectives, crime-scene evidence included residue of a heart-shaped sticker found on duct-tape over Caylee’s mouth. Unfortunately, investigators could not capture the photograph. A blanket was found at the crime scene that matched Caylee’s bedding at her grand-parents’ home. Another part of evidence was photos from Anthony’s ex-boyfriend portraying a poster with the caption “Win her over with Chloroform.” Witness John Dennis Bradley stated that Anthony searched for the word “chloroform” eight-four times.
USA TODAY published an article “Casey Anthony breaks her silence: I sleep pretty good at night.” Anthony did an interview with Associated Press speaking about the case and her daughter’s death for the first time. The Associated Press said that the interview with Anthony was “revealing, bizarre and often contradictory, and ultimately raised more question than answers about the case.” In the interview with Associated Press, Anthony admitted to lying to the police about a number of things such as her employment, leaving her child with a babysitter, and receiving a call from Caylee before she went missing. During the trial, the defense stated that Caylee had drown in the pool and then Casey Anthony’s father tried to cover up the accident.
Trial Four hundred pieces of evidence would be displayed in court, with several articles of evidence being key to the prosecution 's case. A strand of hair was recovered from the trunk of Casey 's car which was similar to hair taken from Caylee Anthony 's hair brush. This strand showed "root-banding," which was consistent with hair from a dead body. On Friday, October 24, 2008, a forensic report by Dr. Vass of the oak ridge national laboratory stated that results from an air sampling procedure (known as LIBS) performed in the trunk of Anthony 's car showed chemical components "consistent with a decompositional event" based on the presence of five key chemical compounds out of over 400 possible chemical compounds that Dr. Vass ' research group considers typical of decomposition. Dr. Vass ' group also stated there was chloroform in the car trunk (Schneider).
However, there no a sufficient evidence to prove that Casey Anthony and her parents know exactly how Caylee died. Caylee's remains were discovered less than half a mile from the Anthony residence with two trash bags, a laundry bag, a blanket, and pieces of clothing showing defects consistent with decomposition (Garavaglia et al., 2008). In this controversial case, there are some patterns that can lead to false child abduction homicides. In a study by Canning and colleagues (2011), many offenders who were involved in child homicides and later reported false abductions were biological parents, with mothers being the most common offenders. In this case after Casey been exonerated the question remain Who killed Caylee
Baez also says that Caylee drowned in the Anthony family pool on June 16, 2008, and that George and Casey Anthony covered up the death.” (Trial Fast Facts) The defense claims that the traces of chloroform found in the trunk occurred while covering up Caylee’s drowning. The prosecution argued that Anthony was a party girl, and unconcerned about her daughter. They stated that Anthony was responsible for the death of

Case Gone Wrong: Anthony vs State of Florida Case No. 5D11-2357 If ever there was a botched case it was this one with inconsistencies on the part of the State being overwhelming. I watched this trial intently and read everything available.
O.J. Simpson was a famous football player and that was accused of killing his ex-wife nicole brown , also her boyfriend Ron Goldman.

Body sniffing dogs were brought to the car, and allegedly indicated that there indeed was a body in the trunk of the car. However, at first, Anthony’s lawyers argued that this technique was merely “junk science” (Jean). Then, they refuted the idea that the air from the trunk of the car was able to be bottled up and tested. Allegedly, a forensic anthropologist was able to use his method of “human decomposition odor analysis” to confirm that 79.2% of the gasses that were found in the car matched with that of a decomposing human body (Shelton 420). His information also was not backed by a method that Florida, as a state, agreed was scientifically valid.
