Casey Anthony’s white Pontiac Sunbird has been flattened according to a news report in CNN.com. The car was destroyed nearly 7 weeks after her acquittal. The Sunbird belonged to George & Cindy Anthony and was the focus of the murder trial of Casey Anthony in which the prosecution claimed she put her daughter’s body in to the trunk and left it for several days.
The stench of human decomposition was noted by Tow Truck Driver and by George Anthony when the car had been picked up after Casey abandoned it outside of a store in Florida.
The car is now flat and is gone from the Anthony’s lives and the site of anyone related to the case. With the trial and the smell, I doubt that the Anthony’s wanted anything else to do with the car. Just like their daughter who they have said is not to come back to their home according to their attorney.
The Defense claimed that the State of Florida used “junk science” when they were trying to prove that Caylee had been in the trunk. I know that DNA was once considered “junk science” as well, now it is freeing people from prison, because of its reliability. My thoughts are that some of the evidence had never been tested in a court of law, and even though there were good experts, the Jury didn’t believe it.
This happened when the first DNA evidence was introduced as well, it was difficult for a Jury to grasp the concept and now it is accepted and not argue able. This case will go down in history, but I do hope that some of the “junk science” is proven in other courts, because the smell and the hair found of little Caylee in the trunk had me convinced.
The evidence in the Casey Anthony Car is now gone, and it is flat in a junk yard, just like the prosecution’s case fell with the jury, flat. Many of us still want justice for Caylee, but we may never see that in this life. It is now in the hands of someone greater than any of us.
