The names of the jurors in the Casey Anthony murder trial in the death of her daughter Casey Anthony are supposed to be released today. But will the names of the Anthony jury, better known as the Ship of Fools, who inexplicably declared Casey Anthony “not guilty as sin” in the murder of Casey? The names were originally withheld from the public for their safety.
Court administration “may release the names only of the fourteen seated jurors who have not already voluntarily released their names in this matter, on or after October 25, 2011,” Judge Belvin Perry ruled on July 26.
Two of the five alternate jurors voluntarily revealed their identities after the not guilty verdict was announced, and one of the twelve who participated in deliberations allowed her name to be released when she did media interviews about the decision. A few others, including the jury foreman, have given interviews but remained anonymous.
Perry authorized the release of the remaining jurors’ names nearly four months after the trial ended because “such a ‘cooling-off’ period fairly balances the public’s access to information and the jurors’ safety.”
The Ship of Fools Casey Anthony jurors names are revealed. So has the cooling off period worked? Time will tell. However, one thing is for certain, these folks might be in more of a name change than Casey Anthony. For the rest of their lives these people will be haunted by the fact that they let a most likely murderer go free.
The jurors are Joan Meier, Raymond Screen, Linda Bills, Harriet White, Brian Berling, Kimberly Kimball, Kathleen Nighland, James Kearns, Ronald Robertson, David Angelo, Mary Fuhr and Jennifer Ford.
Alternate jurors whose names were not previously released are Elizabeth Jones and Heather Feuerhake.
Alternate jurors Dean Edward Eckstadt and Russell William Huekler already voluntarily revealed their identities publicly.
