If you have watched this case, you know that the Defense for Casey Anthony came out in opening statements with a story to rival a Hollywood screenplay. They said that Caylee drowned in the family pool and then Grandfather George found Caylee and helped cover up the accident with Casey.
Yesterday the prosecution learned that there was an inmate, April Whalen, in close proximity to Casey Anthony’s cell who had this story happen to her toddler son. Yes, that’s right, not Casey, but another inmate had lost her son in a backyard pool and the child’s grandfather found the baby boy. Sounds like Casey’s Defense Opening Statements.
In every lie, you can find a small kernel of truth if you look hard enough. The truth might be that Casey heard about the story and may have told her attorney this story so they would have a defense strategy. Yes, it is another intricate lie told by Casey to get herself off.
This whole story surfaced yesterday afternoon while the Defense was putting experts on the stand to say that Caylee’s body might have only been in the dump spot for two weeks. Of course the photo that the expert pulled this theory from was a photo showing the dump site after it had been cleared of the original leaves. Shoddy testimony to say the least.
This case could not have been written by a Hollywood screenwriter, because they would have said it isn’t believable. But Casey Anthony is an unbelievable liar. She may take pieces of truth and weave them together to find a story that will fit her. Speculation continues about whether the Defense will put Casey on the stand, but with this story coming out yesterday, I doubt they would put her on the stand because the jury has had enough of these lies.
