Caylee

Will this finally be the year this sad saga fades from the news? Or will it continue to bubble to the surface in an unattractive way?

Caylee will long be remembered for all the things we don’t know about her. Her foul mother will be long remembered for what we do know.

Dr. Jan Garavaglia gives viewers a detailed look at headline-making forensics in the special ”Dr. G: Inside the Caylee Anthony Case,” which debuts at 8 o’clock on TLC. If you miss it tonight, it will repeat at 10 p.m. Friday on Discovery Fit & Health.

    This saga began as the story of a missing child, and the public was interested in Caylee Anthony for months before her remains were found in December 2008. Why did Caylee gain so much coverage over other missing children and other crime victims?

      For me it was the audacity of both mother and grandmother to lie about the details of their “missing” child. One knew that Caylee was dead but had hope until the remains were found that she was alive. It didn’t shock a soul when Caylee’s remains were found down the street. But it got my ire up, as well as everyone’s, to hear that there was duct tape on her mouth and nose.

        I clearly remember hearing the news report of a mother who had a child missing – I was walking by the television with a basketful of laundry (of course). Nothing made me slow down until I heard them say ‘and not reported missing for 31 days’.

        I stopped dead and said out loud – 31 DAYS? First, 31? WTF

        Then OMG – she killed her baby!

        Who doesn’t report a missing child? Unless they don’t want the missing child found –

    I’m watching it, too. It grieves me to see the playas who were doing every ungodly conceivable thing to get the felon to look innocent of murdering her child. 😡

    I hope there will be some sort of justice for little Caylee. I am surprised at just how sad this is making me.

    I watched this play out daily from the beginning on the local news. From the people stalking the Anthony’s home and disrupting the neighborhood to the squabbling spectators at the trial, I was continually amazed and appalled at the antics of the public. I’m not defending Kasey, I think she was responsible in some way for Caylee’s death. But the way total strangers attached themselves to the Anthony’s personal tragedy as though it gave meaning and purpose to their lives shows more than a dysfunctional family. It shows a dysfunctional society.

      I agree the protesters were over the top as were the lines to get into court.

      That said – it played out just as Baez set it up to play. He orchestrated the media frenzy.

      People were captured by the beautiful child and horror of her death, the antics of the grandparents and the lies and cold hearted behavior of her own mother.

      I feel certain we will see Baez try to recreate this fiasco with another client

    I must say I agree w/MidAgedHousewife.
    Also wanted to remind people that thee was no dug tape found ON the child’s nose, mouth, or even on the skull itself. That is just one, of many, good examples of the mis-info presented in this case, along w/the false assumption that chloroform had anything to do w/her death. Just fyi 🙂

      I guess the duct tape just happened to be in the swamp
      where George dumped the body and Roy Kronk attached
      it to the mandible with his meter stick. And of course there
      were no computer searches for chloroform.

    Duct tape killed her – the chloroform I am not certain of

      JBP allowed the following in court by Dr. Vass:
      “In my report, I presented two figures. One is a control sample showing how much chloroform is present in that and one was of the actual carpet sample from the trunk material. In that the actual amount of chloroform that is typically present in human decompositional remains was about eight times greater than you see in the control sample of the carpet. In the case of what was detected in the trunk material, that was about 10,000 times greater than what we would expect.”

    I am not denying there was chloroform – that would be silly, I just don’t know what it was used for and how such high levels remained in the trunk

      Kim, I have always believed little Caylee was chloformed by the
      felon because Caylee was crying and would not go to sleep.
      Little Caylee died from too much chloroform. The felon freeked
      out and buried her in the back yard. Then, when the heat was
      on the felon dug her up and put her in the trunk until the felon
      threw her in the swamp. Funny how this new felon apologist
      says there was no duct tape but, Bozo spent days linking the
      duct tape to George.

    Everyone has an opinion, Dawg and are allowed You know what they say about that 😉

    I prefer to take an experts opinion – Dr G – as to where the duct tape was located. As for it being homicide – I again defer to the expert
