one should not increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything

This , in a way, describes my thoughts on Caylee’s murder. It is simplicity

Casey had custody of Caylee – lied about everything pertaining to the last time her baby was seen and now she is on trial for killing her baby

Occam’s Razor

Occam’s razor is a logical principle attributed to the mediaeval philosopher William of Occam (or Ockham). The principle states that one should not make more assumptions than the minimum needed. This principle is often called the principle of parsimony. It underlies all scientific modelling and theory building. It admonishes us to choose from a set of otherwise equivalent models of a given phenomenon the simplest one. In any given model, Occam’s razor helps us to “shave off” those concepts, variables or constructs that are not really needed to explain the phenomenon. By doing that, developing the model will become much easier, and there is less chance of introducing inconsistencies, ambiguities and redundancies.

    I have a feeling that Occam’s Razor will not be used to shave anything off of the defense’s defense. Hopefully, the State will keep it simple and to the point. Juries do not like obsfucation. Nor do they care for things to be explained too scientifically-they want the evidence explained in such a way they don’t get lost in trying to understand it.

    I’m kinda thinking that the trial isn’t going to last as long as two months. HHJP said, for the juror’s sake they would hold court on Satardays, too. I give it a month. The case is rather simple even with alot of evidence.

      I agree, Sherry. The simplicity of it has been banging around in my head since it began. There is no ‘conspiracy’.

      There is only Casey

      and her EXTREMELY dysfunctional family

    I am just extremely curious to hear the explanation from Baez explaining the 31 days and the aha moment where it all makes sense to us. I have tried to figure it out for 3 years…….nothing yet!

    One by one, piece by piece, the State will put the puzzle pieces together. . . I m sure they will law it out all nice and neat. . . The Defence will then try to pop a piece here or there, dirty the perfect pretty picture and make it all messy and confusing for the Jury. Once JP lays out the Jury Instruction however, They will know exactly what is expected of them, and they will do what is right and fair. They will examine the evidence, study the defendant and come up with the proper JUDGMENT!

    Kim ~ you are correct, there is no conspiracy, there is only Casey. It is simple, only the defense attorneys manage to make it complicated.

      I wish you’s all the very best of everything!

      Most of all – I wish you’s the greatest, un-conditional and fulfilling love that comes from loving those ever, so-special ‘babes’…

    Although the state is more than capable of being concise and thorough, the defense has proven its ineptness at clarity, staying on topic, and remaining timely.

    They are the ones who will, if anyone, drag out the tortuous trial. I’m sure the judge, however, will do what he can to correct them, encourage them, and push them along.

    The most re-occurring statement from the witness box will be to the defense in the form of: “Can you please repeat that question?”

      I really think Judge Perry is finished schooling Baez. He gave him numerous tries at getting thing right but Baez failed miserably, of course.

    Oh, I liked that show with Levi, Kim. The most informative 30 minutes there is is his show. I found it interesting that Holly Hughes doesn’t believe the Anthonys will behave on the stand. She also said that she thinks the defense hoped the prosecution would raise the issue of the Anthonys in the courtroom but they didn’t bite leaving the defense to look like the bad guys! Touche, LDB and Ashton! lol

    Here is another good show (21 minutes long)_

    Its a special on the Anthony case with Belich and Shaeffer. Put together quite simply!

      Thanks Sherry!

      Holly was very interesting. I don’t believe they will be able to control themselves either. George simply because its who he is to huff an puff and let the caterpillar eyebrows roam his face.

      Cindy has lost what ever control she ever had over the situation. I really don’t think she is aware she lost that control when she made the now famous 911 call.

    Take a look at what some newspapers in Florida are saying about possible locations for jury selection:

    it may be at my end but I’m getting page not found notices on the links there, Kim. Ya think they decided to pull their articles? Nah…

    Here is a map showing where the county is located (I’m surprised at how small it is!):
