HLN’s Nancy Grace has been reporting that Casey Anthony Jurors may have to smell air taken from the trunk of Casey Anthony’s trunk, “the smell of death”. Remember when her mother Cindy called 911 and reported she had found her daughter’s car and “it smelled like a dead body had been in it”.
Technology has advanced to the extent that the scientists tested the air captured in that trunk and it tested for human decomposition. It also may have had chloroform in it which may have been used to drug Caylee to knock her out so her mother could party.
I can’t imagine sitting on a jury and having to smell death that could have been this beautiful little girl. I think it would make me have nightmares. I hope the State Prosecutors do not make the jurors have to smell that odor so that it haunts them for the rest of their lives.
Finding jurors is hard enough due to the poor pay and the inconvenience to jobs and parking and now to inflict emotional damage as well to ordinary citizens who might need psychological help from serving on a jury, I think this is going to far.
I have smelled dead animals in the woods when my family used to go camping when I was growing up and it is not a pleasant smell. You know something has died. You don’t want to imagine it to be a beautiful little girl.
