After three full weeks of trial, the Casey Anthony circus show continues. With each passing day, this case gets more bizarre. For those who haven't heard much, here is a quick story line. Sometime after June 16, 2008, Casey Anthony's daughter Caylee Marie Anthony went missing. She was last seen on that day by her grandparents George and Cindy Anthony. Shortly later, Casey Anthony was put in jail and she now is on trial. During the time her daughter was missing, Casey Anthony was out at parties and getting a tattoo. Jury selection began on May 9th of this year and the trial began on May 24th will Judge Belvin Perry overlooking.

On the very first day of the trial, Casey's attorney Jose Baez laid down his opening arguments and shocked the world. He said that Caylee's death was an accident. He stated that young Caylee has drowned in the family swimming pool. We all thought she has finally told the truth. Moments later, Jose Baez dropped a bomb on the courtroom. He stated that when Casey turned the corner of the house, she saw her father George Anthony holding young Caylee in his arms. He then said when George saw Casey, he began to scream at her and say "look what you done!" "Your mom will never forgive you!" The opening testimony shocked about everyone but Baez wasn't finished. Minutes later, he accused George Anthony of sexual abuse against Casey. He said Casey was taught to lie at an early age. This all came out on day one, so you can only imagine everything else that has been said.

Trial Prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick has did an outstanding job so far presenting evidence against Casey Anthony. It has clearly been seen that Casey Anthony loves to drink and party. She also constantly lies. The bad part, Defense Attorney Jose Baez pointed this out on his own defendant on the first day of trial. Casey has lied about everything and she is still getting caught up in her own mess.

Let's go back to the beginning of this entire mess. Casey told law enforcement that she left Caylee with the babysitter on June 16th, 2008. She mentioned the name of Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, a.k.a. Zanny. She supposedly lived in an Orlando apartment complex. She was questioned by police and stated she didn't even know Casey or Caylee. She is taking Casey to court stating the false statements have ruined her reputation. The trial is set to begin August 29th, 2011.

The trial took another unexpected twist over the last week when the defense stated that Casey's brother Lee sexually abused her as well. Lee was even tested to see if he was the father of Caylee and the test were negative.

If you ask me, it seems that the defense is trying to blame everyone else but Casey. Casey didn't even call the police. The 911 call came from Cindy Anthony, which is Casey's mother. The call came a month after Caylee was thought to disappear. An entire month! That is unreal. Why does the defense continue to bring up all the sexual abuse? I thought this was a murder trial. Yes, the prosecution is seeking the death penalty for Casey Anthony if she is convicted. We can only wonder what the jury thinks about all of this.

This is such a horrific trial. When authorities found the remains, they were wrapped up in garbage bags and there was a heart sticker on the duct tape that was around Caylee's mouth. A Mickey Mouse bag was also found near the site. Thinking about what that little helpless girl went through makes me angry. I feel that justice will be served though. I reflect on karma on this case. What goes around comes around. Who ever did this terrible thing will be punished in time.

One of the biggest questions is this. Who would have benefited from the death of Caylee Anthony? Do you know? I do. Nobody would have but Casey. She enjoyed the party life and this would give her freedom. It is sad to say but it is true. Who in their right mind goes out and party while their child is missing? Who goes around getting a tattoo when their child is missing? Who doesn't call 911 when their child first goes missing? These are the questions that I want to have answered and I believe in due time, the answers will be revealed.

This is such a sad story and there is no good ending. A child has lost their life for nothing. We can't turn back the clock. What is done is done and that is it. It is very easy to see what is going on in this trial. Let's just hope the jury is eyes wide open.

The courtroom has public seats open to see the Casey Anthony murder trial live. There are around 50-60 seats that are open to the public. Those seats have become very popular for spectators. They are so popular that last week there were people actually fighting over seats. It is like the trial has become a reality show to some people. We have to remember what we are really watching. This is a murder trial. Week 4 of the trial is set to begin on Monday. I am sure we can all be in for a few more surprises before all is said and done.

Do you think Casey Anthony is guilty?

This case makes me so sad :-( This poor innocent child didn't ask for a parent like this. It's hard to look at those pictures of the mom out partying when she knew her daughter was missing. Even worse that the mom had probably killed her daughter and was out partying. This story is sickening to me. Thanks for the write up.

Minnetonka, thank you for the comment. It truly is. She looks so guilty. She has been caught up in a web of lies and I believe in the end, the truth may just come out. Thanks for the visit.

Of course she's guilty. The question will be to what extent, and that will determine how much time she either spends behind bars, or sitting on death row awaiting her own demise. I guess on that note I could go either way. I'm definitely a proponent of the death penalty. However, there would be some satisfaction in making her sit in her cell for 23 out of 24 hours a day. She should be forced to watch home movies, perhaps. She should be forced to look at pictures.

Then again, as cold stone-faced as she's been throughout the trial, I'm not sure she would care either way.

It's amazing that not one person who voted felt she was innocent. The evidence is overwhelming. Have you been following the Amanda Knox trial in Italy? She is in the process of a retrial and if she does not win her freedom they are going to give her life. It is pretty tragic and that is one situation where I feel she IS innocent and was involved indirectly at the wrong time. Very sad.

Thanks for the comment Denise. I have seen bits of the trial but I haven't followed it like this one. I have to agree with you. I feel bad for these people who wonder into the wrong place at the wrong time.

The Casey Anthony case is one that effects so many people. The feeling of outrage is so strong. I'm still not quite sure how they found her not guilty.

I had a front row seat for this one. The local news got so addicted to the story that they are still giving daily reports several months after the event. They even passed a law to make it a serious felony to not know where your child is.

Hello?! It is already a law! It fits under neglect and abuse. Depending on the circumstances and the judge, you could get 20 years. The real story here. We live in a world ruled by insanity. You have a nice Sunday, too. I love your work.

Hey there WD. This was a tragic event from the vert start and still is. What more can be said? Agree, the media blew it up, but all these missing 2 and 3 year old kids in America these days? Sick people. If you have the tendency to kill a child, you deserve to be taken out back and have your *** stomped.

An innocent child you know. I can only imagine what the poor girl went through. Casey was guilty as they come. Now she is free. American justice? Sounds like something is wrong with it.
