      I’m so bummed that she won’t testify. I really was looking forward to Linda Drane Burdick nailing her butt to the wall.

      There was no way she would testify the jury already knows she is a liar.
      I agree I would have loved to see Linda nail her!
      I wished Linda was the one to question that other liar River Cruz Kyrstal Holloway!

      I’m so sorry but I’m gonna ruffle some feathers here. I have watched this trial daily since day one. In my opinion I don’t think the state proved anything. I don’t disagree that the death of this baby is terrible and that Casey Anthony likely played a role. What I disagree with is the prosecutions case. Outside of coincidental evidence and a foul odor I didn’t feel that the prosecution proved anything beyond a reasonable doubt. Matter of fact I felt that the defenses shortcomings raised enough doubts and questions that if I was on the jury I’d be hung. I guess we will find out soon enough what a difference being there in person made when the jury returns.
      SM: Sorry to hear you opinion … if you watched from the beginning then either you did not understand the circumstantial & forensic evidence, nor how they connected the dots. Also, I guess every mother parties for 31 days and acts like nothing as happened as their child rots in a swamp.

      I realize the burden of proof is on the prosecution, and that the defendant does not HAVE to testify, but if they wanted to pursue accidental drowning, casey needed to take the stand and tell a compelling narrative. If this story was true, she should have been able to tell a tear-jerking story that would stand up to cross-examination, then freely admit to being a cold-hearted bitch after the fact.

      I didn’t watch any of the trial, but I did the daily summaries and I never saw any real account of a drowning.
      SM: You are correct that the burden is ion the State and it should be. However, defense atty Baez presented an alternative theory during opening statements and never came close to providing any evidence of his accusations.
