Perhaps the whole family is guilty
- IMO, Casey had been drugging the child and accidently overdosed her. She staged the drowning for her father to find. They were both so scared of gma (and perhaps she was even in on the whole thing) they cooked up this elaborate plan of a missing child and so on. George and casey dressed her for her watery grave hoping she would not be found until all evidence of 'HOW" she died, hence the 30 days. George, being an ex-cop was protected by the brotherhood. Also, the first policeman on call to that area where the baby was found goofed it up (perhaps on purpose) I still wonder why no one has pursued "HOW" the baby got in the bag..isn't someone responsible for that even if there was no murder? I remember on the first reports there was a man and woman sited near that area at the time when she might have been placed there. The car that was sighted was a description of the Sunfire. This family pulled this off together to hide an accidental overdose..bunch of sickos! Investigate pleze

- I would turn around, sue her, and make her own up to the truth. I just hope she does not walk today. Caylee did no crime and was sentenced to death. She wasn't given a choice and now her so-called mother goes free to do all the things and more without a baby in her way, Now she will be going around her friends and tell them , I told you I was a good liar and now I got off with murder and I did it with all lies. Shame, shame on those that set her free to do whatever she pleases. She was the last one seen with Caylee and she should have been the only suspect. I am sick at my stomach of this verdict and now there will be many parents getting away with the same thing just because they saw it happen yesterday.

- Jun08Betty Schultz You know it is too obvious who murdered baby Caylee but whatever happened to humanity especially in the case of this precious baby. It's horrible that a mother planned and murdered her baby but even worse that she would treat the child like she was trash. She could have at least tried to do something better that what she did. What happened to the story like oh my God I took my eyes off my baby for a few minutes and she drowned. Oh, my God I shouldn't have left her alone. It was obvious that she wasn't a good mother. I think she really felt that Caylee was in the way of Casey's lifestyle. All I feel is like I think most decent person would , is that the baby deserved to have a decent burial not to be treated like trash. How a mother could murder her child and then carry her around in the car for a while and then kept trying to hide the body until she could find a place to bury her baby. Oh how horrible. Again, I don't think the grandparents were involved with this horrible crime. They showed more emotions of losing a loved one than the real mother of the child. By the way did Casey really know who the father of the child was and were they married or divorced and who had custody of Caylee. I think if the grandparents would have been keeping Caylee that she would be alive today. The Anthonys are hurt real bad about this whole thing. Was Caylee their only grand child? Being a grandmother myself and how I feel about my grandchildren , I see looks on their faces that I have been going through by just being stopped from being a part of 1 of my granddaughters life. They are hurting beyond anything we can imagine. Casey feels like she had gotten rid of her object of distraction and she was finally feeling that she was getting the attention now that she wanted so bad that she would get rid of a beautiful daughter. She is not human for her actions in all the things that she does . The partying and acting like she is hot to trot is disgusting to watch. May God have mercy on her soul. To the grandparents I send my condolences for their loss. They loved that grandchild very much and to have that child ripped from their heart and to know that their own daughter did this terrible thing to little Caylee. It is so heart breaking. I wouldn't doubt that she did this to little Caylee to hurt her parents. What a punishment for loving a grandchild. I don't think the Anthony's should have to go through the trial. They've been through too much already. I hope Casey gets what she deserves . A life for a life. That's What I feel and everyone has a right to their own opinion. I bet all of those beautiful pictures of Caylee, was taken by her loving , caring and proud grandparents.

- After reading these posts I can see how the jury voted to acquit Casey. One person went as far as saying because of the "abuse and chaos in her life Casey Anthony was innocent. @ Elizabeth, You think George was a child molester just because Casey said he was? She's a compulsive liar. Also, do you know the difference between being found "not guilty" and being "acquitted". Casey Anthony was NOT found not guilty. She was acquitted. Huge difference.

Caylee's death was accidental
- Caylee drowned in the pool, motivation?, as a home owner George Anthony is accountable for what happens to "ANYBODY" on his property, 30 years in law enforcement he has put a lot of people in jail, and he was facing jail time, yes I have a theory, and I can prove this only with the evidence that I have seen in the trial, I will share what I researched about "chloroform", Google these key words: dissolves ,evaporates, heat and chloroform, what I found ? it is impossible that a crime was committed with this gas judge for yourself

- George Anthony is something less than a man. His responsibility is to protect his family. As much as I love my daughter, if my grand daughter came up missing and I couldn't get a straight answer out of her Mom, my daughter and I would find ourselves locked in a room and whether or not we both came out alive would depend on her telling me what happened to the baby. This stuff of playing footsy while that little girl's body decomposes in a field is beyond my ability to comprehend. George should have used Casey's forehead as a stud finder until she gave in and told the truth. I'm by nature a peaceful man, but when it comes to the safety of my 6 year old grand daughter, all bets are off. I'm her grampa, it's my job.

Resposible Gun Owners
- Most of the folks who responded appear to be responsible gun owners. In Arizona, everybody is a cowboy. We still believe the west needs to be won. As a former bad guy who went to prison for shooting a guy during a home invasion, I have a different take on guns. The bad guys don't purchase guns legally. We steal them from irresponsible gun owners who leave them where the burglar has easy access. I would like to see legislation passed forcing the buyer to be held responsible for any crimes committed with the handgun registered to him/her. Gets stolen and used in the commission of a robbery, you do time. Your kid gets it and kills the neighbor kid, you go to prison. You clean it after drinking a few beers and it goes off and caps your wife, you do time. Most owners would be better off with a can of mace. City dwellers rarely practice firing their gun. You can bet the bad guy knows how to use his! This is not a toy. Act responsibly.

Dropped the ball
- Of course Casey murdered her. So many people have said the legal system failed this little girl. The legal system did exactly what it was suppose to do. The prosecutors failed this little girl. This case was an easy win for any competent trial lawyer. If the D.A.'s office was inexperienced they should have brought in a prosecutor from another jurisdiction.
But what if?
- To this day, I've never heard any mention of the fact that Casey had told her friend, Amy that her parent's were turning the house over to Casey and that they could both live there. I have never heard a response, though I may have missed it, by George or Cindy to this statement by Casey to Amy. But if it was said, and was NOT true, then what if Casey was planning on killing her entire family including Lee and being left as the only heir,would be given the house and jumped the gun a bit in telling Amy this so as to keep her as a friend? She might have pulled some other stunts on poor Amy before the check fraud stunt, and needed to say something to keep her as a friend. This is far fetched. But is what I was wondering early on in the case, and never had heard a word about it. Just thought I'd throw that out, but I do believe when a jury says not guilty, then that's what you are. Not guilty.
- Casey was raised by an over bearing, controlling mother and a father who sexually abused her sexually. I have believed these two things since day one. Before a body was found. Before she, herself came out and accused her father. I also believed it was an accidental drowning form day one. It was always just a matter of unraveling the various responses by the entire family. Their responses to the death of Caylee. I believe that Casey imagined what her parent's reaction's would be., which is what she claimed George actually DID say during the trial. In other words, she , by trial time was telling a partial truth. Everything was true except the fact that it was she who pulled Caylee from the pool, and she who hid the body. I believe that she felt no guilt because she was not guilty of murder, but of an accident. I also believe that she was quite adept at disassociating, and repressing truths at this point BECAUSE of the abuse and chaos she suffered all of her life. She is innocent
Attempt Went Wrong
- What probably happened was that Casey was trying to get Caylee to quiet down so Casey could rejoin her boyfriend in the bedroom. Casey used chloroform to put the baby to sleep on other occasions but this time, either because Casey was pissed at Caylee or tired, or something, gave the baby an overdose and killed her. Then, being the sleazeball she is Casey took the baby and threw her away because now not only was the baby inconvenient for her, being a dead baby became even more inconvenient. A pity the jury was brain-dead on this one. Now we are forced to wait for the Eternal to give innocent Caylee justice, but, he'll give her justice for sure.

NOT AN ACCIDENT
- I believe George was abusing Caylee just as he was Casey. I think Casey stayed the night somewhere and after Cindy left for work George was molesting Caylee, and things went a little too far and she died. He waited for Casey’s arrival, and in the meantime dunked the baby in the pool and when Casey got home he shouted look what you have done so he could pin it all on her. He then explained with his "cop" expertise that she would go to prison since she was the mother, so they made a plan to hide the body for as long as possible, because George didn’t want any evidence that he had abused her. Casey sat in jail only because George convinced her that she would walk and if it were him in there he would die an old man and never get out.

- I don't understand why no further explanation was given on Caylee's whereabouts after Casey's "nanny" story was a proven lie. WHAT HAPPENED THE LAST TIME YOU SAW YOUR DAUGHTER CASEY?!!! Maybe Casey wanted to party so she put the defenseless child in the trunk of her car with duct tape over her mouth to prevent anyone from bearing her cries...possibly adding the heart shape sticker in a pathetic attempt to ease the baby from her sorrow. This unfortunately probably happened more than once so if Caylee was as cooperative the next time around maybe that's when Casey introduced the chloroform which ended fatal for the dear angel. We'll probably never know the truth behind this cruelty to pure innocence but as stated before, God knows what happened and the final outcome (which is beyond our human perception) will be for the best.

- I think her mother killed her because she wanted to party and have many boyfriends!
- —Guest Anonymous
- I think the child died tied up and taped across the mouth while her mother enjoyed herself in the club. If she brought a man home then the child was left to spend the night in the trunk and stupid Casey wondered why the baby was dead. I'm surprised that she wasn't even charged with child neglect.
