Well, the day we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. No, not the arrest of George Anthony, but the release of Jose’s book – “Presumed Guilty – Casey Anthony: The Inside Story.” If you’ve not yet bought the book, or you’ve not been in person to a B&N store to buy it, now would be a great time!
Here’s a brief excerpt from the book posted yesterday by Marilyn C.:
Jose Baez writes:
“They prosecuted this case by discussing everything but a murder. And this was the end result. If you are outraged by our approach, you really aren’t looking at it from a legal perspective. As I said, whether or not Casey was abused is irrelevant to the question of how Caylee died, but so is her behavior during the thirty days. The prosecution made a big deal of her clubbing and partying. What does that tell you about whether there’s been a murder? These are all irrelevant facts, but what made them relevant was the prosecution’s approach, not ours. If you can understand that, you can understand it all.”
Jose makes a good point. The prosecution were off at a tangent for most of the trial, concentrating on everything that happened (and/or didn’t happen) after Caylee’s murder. The trial wasn’t about what happened afterwards if I recall. It never was.
The fact is, there were only 3 people in the house on the morning of June 16th 2008. Casey, Caylee and George.
If we take Casey out of the equation — then we rule out the “accident” — and we also deduce that Caylee didn’t decide to commit suicide that morning — then all that points directly at George murdering Caylee. It’s not rocket science to come to that conclusion.
Why rule out an accident? I believe Jose knew it wasn’t an accident from the start… however he led with that in his opening statements for reasons that we’re still not fully aware of. After all, the whole objective of the trial is for the prosecution to prove their case (beyond all reasonable doubt) and convince the jury. That never happened, not did it ever look likely to happen.
You cannot convict on assumptions, junk science and fantasy forensics. You convict on facts and evidence. The prosecution had neither. They basically had a mad scientist, some Casey party pics and a Blockbuster surveillance video.
So yes, even though Jose led with the accident theory, I just do not believe it. Do you?
I mean… since when does an accident occur, specifically a drowning accident… and the victim finishes up dumped in the woods in trash bags? If anyone can recall any such event, let me know.
The only time that happens is  when it’s not an accident and it’s a murder, and  when the murderer has evidence they need to get rid of. In this case, unfortunately that “evidence” was Caylee. The evidence being her sexual abuse by George Anthony, which of course would have been discovered had 911 been called.
Having said that, it certainly does not detract from Jose’s overall brilliance during the trial, and the ultimate acquittal of Casey thanks to the overall efforts of Team Casey. That can never be disputed.
Remember… we’re dealing with the amoral George Anthony here. This is the same guy that sexually abused Casey since she was 8 years old… and the same guy that used to get his kicks from having his hands down his granddaughters pants at every opportunity.
However, we can bitch about George til’ the cows come home… but in order for the record to be put straight, and in order to clear Casey’s name, the authorities need to reopen this case and question George, specifically about what Casey recalled and remembered he did that morning, during her deposition.
If you’re a first-time visitor here and all of this is news to you, just click here (or click the link below) to read my post from last September: “Immaculate Deception: The Untold Story of Caylee Marie Anthony.” — then go read Jose’s book too.
Don’t forget to post your “Presumed Guilty” reviews here in the site, and to post positive reviews on Amazon and B&N too.
Have an awesome day!
