Casey Anthony has been charged with first degree murder of Caylee Anthony. If she is convicted of that charge, she could possibly face the death penalty. However, the jury in the case could decide to drop the first degree murder charge and find Anthony guilty on a lesser count.
The Casey Anthony jury, which has been sequestered in an Orlando hotel, met briefly with Judge Belvin Perry Tuesday morning for instructions on how to proceed with deliberations. He told jurors they had the option to find Casey Anthony guilty of lesser charges if they should decide to, including second degree murder, manslaughter or third degree felony murder. None of those charges would carry a possible death sentence.
Anthony also faces charges of aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter and multiple counts of lying to law enforcement.
Orlando News Channel 9 is reporting that SOMEONE was looking up recipes to cook up the chemical chloroform on sociopath Casey Anthony’s home computer, around time her 3 year old daughter Caylee disappeared. If you’ve been following the case, you know that high levels of the deadly substance chloroform were found in the trunk of party-girl Casey’s car. Sheriff’s investigators have found that someone on Casey Anthony’s computer was researching not WHERE to buy chloroform, but recipes on how to make it yourself…which is apparently pretty easy. Bleach, or pool shock, acetone and ice are all you need. Do NOT go up in the kitchen and make this stuff. It is highly unstable and very deadly.
Chloroform isn’t supposed to be sold to the general public, but it IS sold on the ‘net, and it’s not that hard to buy. Buying it on the net, however, WOULD leave a paper-trail. When you Google “how do you make chloroform,” more than a million websites are listed with instructions. On one of the first ones, there is an explicit warning about chloroform, calling the chemical extremely dangerous and unpredictable. The warning says to NEVER allow children anywhere near it. Hmmm.
Channel 9’s news analyst Bill Sheaffer says it’s
“Another piece of evidence in the circumstantial chain. It’s significant because, if Casey made the chloroform as opposed to buying it, she could have been trying to cover her tracks. Buying it would have generated some sort of record. This way certainly, she could argue, ‘Alright, I was interested in looking into how to make chloroform, but I never did.’ Or, ‘That’s why you smelled chloroform in the trunk area, because I was experimenting in making it,'”
Right. Somehow Casey doesn’t seem like a big chemistry buff…she didn’t even graduate from high school. The question for Casey’s potential jurors will be…why would Casey buy, OR make chloroform? Last week, the Orange County grand jury heard from several witnesses, including the FBI and one of the sheriff’s computer investigators. Reportedly that information is going to be released to the public very soon. One theory being tossed about is that psycho Casey drove around for 11 DAYS with Caylee’s body in her trunk. That would certainly explain the many reports of the car’s horrible stench.
Things are moving rapidly since Casey was arrested for the third time, and this time was charged with Caylee’s murder. Casey Anthony’s defense attorney is going to start questioning his first prosecution witnesses in the case next Thursday. Some who will be taking the stand are an employee at the Amscot on Goldenrod and Highway 50 where Casey abandoned her car in late June, employees from Johnson’s Wrecker Service, the company that towed the car from the Amscot, and Casey’s ex-boyfriend Tony Lazzaro. What do they all have in common? They all had access to Casey’s car. (What else do they all have in common? No real motive for killing Caylee.)
Sociopath, selfish, golddigger, party-girl Casey needs to get served JUSTICE. And that’s a recipe only the jury can cook up.
