The Smell of Death Exonerates Casey Anthony
In the matter of murder, the most perplexing thing is how to dispose of the body; and in a premeditated murder, preceded by research and planning, that challenge would be considered and resolved. Finally, if the victim is a small child, the challenge is reduced by a body size that is easily lifted, hidden and transported. Consequently, as a matter of common sense, if Casey Anthony carried around a decomposing body, of a small child, in the trunk of her car, until it was stinking, that was not a plan . . .
When the smell of the corpse forced her to act, cadaver dogs established that she placed it near Caylee's sand box, and her playhouse, and it appears from where the body was found, that she ultimately left it less than a mile up the street from her house, that doesn't sound like a plan either . . .
The fact that Casey held onto the body, and where she attempted to place it, says a lot. She held onto the body because she couldn't bare to let her daughter go; and when the smell forced her to, she tried to put Caylee where she loved to be — in her sandbox, or her playhouse . . . And when she couldn't do that, she kept her as near as she dared, right up the street from her house.
The decomposing corpse, and the attempts to dispose of the body, make the case that the death of Caylee Anthony, was not a pre-meditated murder.
