Another theory that I thought about:
Casey made the chloroform, and had used it previously. She found it wore off in a time not suitable to meet her needs, so she used duct tape to tape a
paper towel or napkins, perhaps the toilet paper- to Caylee's face to prolong the exposure to the chloroform.
Instead, she overdosed her, and she died. This would explain the reasoning that there was no DNA or flesh left on the duct tape (aside from weather
exposure) along with the odd way of the taping.
To me, the way the taping was suggested to have been done suggested it was holding something in place, not to smother. Just an intuition, or whatever
you choose to call it.
Just something I considered.
Keep in mind also, that though the jury found her not guilty, they admitted they felt she probably was. If perhaps one person had held out for a hung
jury, this could have been tried in a different manner and had a different outcome. The prosecution would most likely have come at it from a different
angle, perhaps even changed to charges to make it less definitive than what is required for a death penalty case.
Also, reasonable doubt is just that. What one person may consider reasonable, another may not. I think this had much to do with the jury selection,
which in itself is a science. There are entire teams that research jury selection, and rest assured, they were utilized by the defense in this case.
This does not make it a bad jury, just one that would be more apt to move in ways the defense desired.
Jury selection, though a two way steet, could have well worked for the defense, even when the prosecution was doing the choosing. If the prosecution
was looking for one particular attribute, the defense was looking for another, and unbeknownst to the prosecution they could have easily played into
what the defense was desiring and looking for.
