When news broke of three-year-old Caylee Anthony’s disappearance from her home in Florida in July 2008, there was a huge outpouri...
Bisma's insight:

Summary:

In July of 2008, three-year-old Caylee Anthony’s disappeared from her home in Florida. As the investigation starts Casey became the main suspect. In October, there was evidence against Casey—her erratic behavior and lies, her car that had evidence of human decomposition. Two months later, police found Caylee’s remains a quarter of a mile away from the Anthony home. Casey pled not guilty to charges of murder in the first degree, and she continues to protest her innocence. Did she or didn’t she kill Caylee? This book sheds light into the most shocking, confusing, and horrific of crimes.

 

Theme/Moral of the story:

There really isnt a moral or even a theme. Mainly it's about how some of the evidence was brought and how it all gets connected. If I had to select a theme it would be that all these little things can be a part of something really big. All the evidence brought to the court just showed how almost everything Casey Anthony did was suspicious. The theme of this book is to show how evidence is found then tested then used against someone who commits a crime. The theme can also be that this book would shed light on what the public didn't see. Basically the behind the scenes that went into trying to convict Casey Anthony was just as important to know as the scenes the public saw.  

 

Review:

I enjoyed reading this book because I spent my entire summer watching this case with my mother and sister. It was interesting to see from the eyes of a third person who has more insight than what we saw during court sessions. The author of this book, Diane Fanning, follows a case and then writes what she finds after talking and having interviews with people who were actually there. This book gives you more information than what you saw on TV because you can actually learn about what was happening with the evidence and how it was being connected, the different tests, and some tests that have never been used before this case. You learn how these tests were used against Casey and how they contributed to finding her guilty. It allows you to be a detective trying to piece together the different evidence brought forth.

Casey Anthony Juror Speaks Out - On The Record Fox News (Part 2)

Juror #11, the foreman for the Casey Anthony jury, speaks to Fox News about the trial, the evidence, and the not guilty verdict.
Bisma's insight:

Summary:

In this video it talks about how this juror saw the evidence brought and determined if he believed Casey Anthony murdered her daughter.

Connection: 

In the book it talks about how in the beginning the evidence that was brought against Casey, were examined. In this video it talks about how that evidence was too broad. In the book it also speaks of how George didn't report the smell when he came across it. In this video, the juror talks about how he thought that was suspicious. Its connected because the book talks about the evidence and the video talks about how it was presented and looked at.

Evidence Found After Anthony is Aquitted

Student Resources In Context
Bisma's insight:

Summary:

New evidence was found 16 months after Casey Anthony was acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter, Caylee. Investigators found that a user logged onto Anthony's computer and checked her Facebook and Myspace accounts. The mystery user also entered "fool-proof suffication" on Google and browsed websites on asphyxiation. Police only checked the computer's Internet history on two web browsers. Legal analyst Bill Sheaffer says Casey cannot be retried for murder.

Connection:

The book and this article are a like because in the book its all about how evidence is brought in and tested. In the book it states that most of the evidence that linked Casey to the death of her daughter, Caylee, was found on the computer. The computer had web searches of Chloroform which is what killed Caylee.

Cruel Deception

Cruel Deception | Mommy's Little Girl-independent reading | Scoop.it
In and out of hospitals since birth, angelic nine-month-old Morgan Reid finally succumbed to what appeared to be Sudden Infant Death Synd...
Bisma's insight:

Summary:

Nine-month-old Morgan Reid succumbed to what appeared to be Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Morgan's Texas-born mother Tanya, a nurse and devoted wife, her grieving husband Jim and her moved on. It was the best way to put the past behind them. Until their son Michael, a boy who by all accounts was terrified of his mother, began showing signs of the same affliction that stole the life of his baby sister.
First, the suspicion: Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. Then, Tanya was charged and convicted with felony child abuse of her son. She was later tried and ultimately convicted for first degree murder of Morgan. It would become a trial that unfolded in a series of reversals and bizarre twists of fate as it gradually revealed another side of Tanya Reid-of her own troubling childhood and the dark secrets that drove a woman to the cruelest deception of all.

 

Connection:

Both the women killed their child. At first they lied to law enforcement then once they got caught they still lied. After they killed their children they both tried to act like nothing happened. Although Casey didn't really admit to killing her daughter or that her daughter was dead, Tanya knew her daughter was dead. Both women had some phycological problems and some sort of troubled past. Both stories shed light on what the public didn't see and the evidence, tests, and procedures taken to convict these women. One got away with murder while the other was convicted

Sheriff Admits It Made Mistake In Casey Anthony Case

Sheriff Admits It Made Mistake In Casey Anthony Case | Mommy's Little Girl-independent reading | Scoop.it

Bisma's insight:

Summary:

The Florida sheriff's office that investigated the disappearance of Casey Anthony's 2-year-old daughter overlooked evidence that someone in their home did a Google search for "fool-proof" suffocation methods on the day the girl was last seen alive.

Connection:

In the book there was evidence about the chloroform but not computer searches on "fool proof suffocation". But its still connected because it talks about how the evidence that the prosecuters missed and how Jose Baez knew about it and blamed it on George Anthony saying he "conducted the search after Caylee drowned because he wanted to kill himself". Basically its about more evidence coming in and how it was used against Casey.

Anthony Home

Anthony Home | Mommy's Little Girl-independent reading | Scoop.it
Bisma's insight:

Desprition: 

Anthony home in Florida where most of the evidence was found and a quarter of a mile where Caylee's remains were found.

Connection:

The connection this picture has to the book is that most of the evidence was from the Anthony home. Detectives found the Anthony computer where there were several web searches on what killed Caylee which was Chloroform.
