Photos Show Casey Anthony Laughing Hysterically While Facing Death Penalty

Updated on May 18, 2011

Imagine This:

A woman steals money from friends and family, (allegedly) murders her toddler, and goes off partying for 31 days.

She concocts a story about a kidnapper-slash-nanny, gets locked up for check fraud, and while in prison, learns that her child's skeletal remains were recovered from a wooded lot down the block from her home.

The woman expresses no sorrow, remorse or guilt, and when she enters the courtroom for her murder trial, she smiles like she's the guest of honor at the coolest party in town.

If Casey Anthony is found guilty of murdering her daughter, Caylee Anthony, the passage above pretty much sums up the entire story.

Diane Fanning, the author of "Mommy's Little Girl," was quick to pen a book about Casey Anthony. However, Defense attorney, Jose Baez, maintains that there's much more to this story, and it will all come out at trial.

Questions people want answered:

Why didn't Casey Anthony report her child missing? Did she deliberately kill her baby? Was Caylee's death the result of an accident?

Since 2008, there's been talk about a Casey Anthony movie deal. Until this trial ends, and maybe even after the trial ends, we may never know all of the details of Casey Anthony's story.

Prosecutors Have the Upper Hand?

Some people say that Jose Baez committed career suicide the day he decided to defend Casey Anthony.

She's definitely a difficult client to defend; she's a woman who partied for 31 days and didn't bother to report her daughter missing.

Prosecutors have over 500 pages of circumstantial evidence, and possible proof of human decomposition in the trunk of Casey Anthony's vehicle. Casey Anthony even admitted (in a jailhouse letter to another inmate) to lying about the kidnapper/nanny.

However, she still maintains that she doesn't know what happened to her daughter, even though she was the last person to see her alive.

Defending Casey Anthony

So, if you're a Defense attorney, and you know you're about to go down with the S.S. Casey Anthony, what can you do to save face and save your client from the chair?

If you can't throw someone under the bus, you better start exploring "mitigating factors" for the crime, and you better make sure your client looks unkempt and "off her rocker."

Gone are the days of cute dresses, salon-styled hair and go-go boots; it's time to look "crazy."

How does the Defense team accomplish this task?

  • A "woe is me" hair cut. Make sure the client's bangs are long enough to cover her eyes.
  • Tell the client not to wash the hair. Skip the comb, add elastic bands.
  • Make her wear frumpy and loose-fitting clothing.
  • She should be ready, on cue, to smile and laugh inappropriately.

The goal? Win the sympathy of male jurors. The "hot" girl is falling apart behind bars.

      My number one question before the verdict was how could you party while you child is missing and why didn't you tell someone? I quess that's two questions. Now I wonder why she is out living her life and who do they think killed Caylee?

      Sadly, Justice for Caylee will be accomplished in the next life, and not this one. Thank you to Team Caylee; all the prosecutors, witnesses, LE, CSI, and public, who fought so hard for the little one. We love you, Baby.

      The prosecution is not obligated to prove guilt; guilt without a reasonable doubt is sufficient. When was the last time you drove around in your car with a corpse of a child in the trunk? A child that was later reported as missing, a child whose body had left decomposition in your trunk, and later was found in a shallow grave three blocks from your home in a empty lot that you previously used as a pet cemetery? I just love to take Sunday drives with corpses in my trunk, don't you?

      Believe what you want. Are you one of those paid bloggers hired by the defense and Casey's parents to blog? Have you heard of Scott Petersen of California whose sentence is the death penalty? Scott was caught trying to flee the country. He showed no remorse. Casey, after her child's secret so called disappearance, celebrated, partied, and shopped with money she stole showing no concern whatsoever with her child's "disappearance". Actions speak louder than words, in this case actions scream louder that words.

      there is no doubt in my mind the baby passing was an accident. who did it? everything points to Casey but sometimes clues are obviously found like stickers??? Come on she is a lyer but smarter than we all think. dont be suprised if this thing takes a large swing in a direction none of us seen coming. no matter what it will be found the father helped someone with the cover up and is the only one that knows everything. Dont even think Casey knows what happened after the baby accidently died. it got blown out of proportion she paniced(or who ever) paniced and basically created a monster. I believe she will walk or catch a short sentence due to where did it happen? how did it happen its all to confusing and the jurers dont have the answers. would you sentence someone to death with all the unanswered questions? I WOULDN T. your passing judgement on this girl with a long way to go, we ll see...... Hope she walks

      I hate to say this, but unless prosecutors can prove Caylee's DNA was in the trunk, on the shovel, on something involved in this case, Casey Anthony may walk. It's not enough for prosecutors to say "maybe," "most likely" or "possibly." They need to prove that Caylee's body was in that trunk or that Casey put the duct tape on her mouth.

      If you think she is innocent because she continues to say she is after all the evidence? Then I want to tell you I know someone personally that can lie when the truth would do better. I have seen the man get caught red handed and stand there and lie to your face . It is the most incredible thing you have ever seen. At best he will smile and shrug his shoulders. I fully expect after all is said and done that will be Casey`s reaction.
