Yesterday, after her 2 year old daughter Caylee Marie Anthony has been missing for almost 4 months, Casey Anthony was finally indicted on capital charges of murder in the first degree, as well as 6 other charges. I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I am happy that this bitch is finally being brought to justice and held accountable for the disappearance and murder of her sweet baby daughter. On the other hand, it's been almost 4 months and there has still been no sign of this child's body. Her mother has consistently lied and refused to cooperate with authorities, and it appears she will do so until she is sentenced.

Obviously the evidence against her is compelling enough for a grand jury to agree to charge her with a capital offense even without a body, which is wonderful. However, it breaks my heart to think of this sweet angel somehwere out there, with no proper burial. I don't know why this case has grabbed me so hard. Maybe because I myself was a young, single mother. Maybe it's because Casey Anthony seems too pretty to have done such a despicable, heinous thing. Maybe it's because Caylee Anthony was such a cute baby. I just don't understand what could ever compel a mother to murder her child and then just abandon her body. No matter how young you are, no matter how many things you're missing out on, how could anyone do such an awful thing? It really boggles the mind.

Here's hoping the murder one charges stick, and here's hoping a jury will sentence this evil woman to death. She has shown no remorse whatsoever, other than a few crocodile tears shed (I believe) over getting caught. During the month her daughter was missing, before her mother called 911 and reported her missing, this chick was out partying it up at clubs, screwing around with men, and just acting like a general skank. Not exactly the actions of a caring, loving, concerned mother. :(

Tim Miller of Texas Equa Search (spelling?) has spent considerable amounts of money and time slogging through the swamps of Florida, searching for this baby's body so she can have a proper burial and a final resting place. He has said that they will not stop looking for Caylee, even though her very own grandparents are no longer cooperating with his efforts. This guy deserves some kind of an effing medal for all the work he has done over the years on behalf of these abused, murdered, throwaway children.

I could go on, but that's enough for now.

RIP Caylee Marie Anthony. I hope they find you soon. :(

    (CBS/WKMG/AP) ORLANDO, Fla. - After deliberating for more than 10 hours, a jury of seven women and five men found Casey Anthony not guilty Tuesday of first-degree murder in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

    Anthony was also found not guilty of aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter. She was found guilty of four lesser charges of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.


    Judge Belvin Perry will sentence Anthony Thursday morning on those charges. While she could receive up to a year in jail for each count, legal expert Mark O'Mara told [URL="http://www.clickorlando.com/news/28451846/detail.html"]CBS affiliate WKMG[/URL] he expects Perry to give Anthony time served. She has been in the Orange County Jail since October 2008.


    Anthony, 25, has been on trial since May 24 in a case that has been broadcast across the country, starting with Caylee's disappearance in 2008. Caylee's decomposed body was found in the woods near the Anthony's home and a medical examiner was never able to determine how she died.


    Caylee was reported missing on July 15, 2008, after Casey Anthony told her parents she had not seen Caylee since she was kidnapped by a nanny on June 16, 2008.


    Later at trial, the defense said she lied about the nanny, claiming that Caylee had actually died in the family swimming pool on June 16. They stated that her seemingly carefree attitude was in fact a way for her to hide the emotional distress caused by sexual abuse from her father.

    Casey Anthony did not take the stand during the trail, leaving her claim as to how Caylee died unsubstantiated.


    The prosecution contended that Caylee was suffocated with duct tape by her mother, who loved to party, tattooed herself with the Italian words for "beautiful life" in the month her daughter was missing and crafted elaborate lies to mislead everyone from investigators to her own parents.


    Many dedicated followers of the trial camped outside the courthouse daily to get a spot to watch the drama from inside the courthouse. It was this public fascination and heavy media attention that caused jury selection to take place outside of Orlando. Jurors were brought in from the Tampa Bay area and sequestered for the entire trial.
    Casey Anthony cried after the verdict was read and hugged her attorney Jose Baez.


    "While we're happy for Casey, there are no winners in this case," Baez said at a news conference after the hearing. "Caylee has passed on far, far too soon and what my driving force has been for the last three years has been always to make sure that there has been justice for Caylee and Casey because Casey did not murder Caylee. It's that simple. And today our system of justice has not dishonored her memory by a false conviction."
