I feel your pain; its giving me a huge headache and anger knowing that this $^#%@ is getting off free.
She is 100% guilty
She partied for 30 days after her daughter went missing(Murdered) That is one huge implication of her involvement
She lied to Law Enforcement about everything.
She made up a story about a nanny kidnapping her daughter
That IMO proves she murdered her daughter She contrived lies mis-lead investigators long enough for her to get away with it.
The decomposition of her daughters body when it was found was in the very late stage which didn't help the prosecution.
This is a shame
I wish Casey Anthony would Get the Death penalty.
