Who killed little Caylee Anthony? We may never know.... The jury verdict came in today and it left most of us scratching our heads!
After 3 years and a month of trial, Casey Anthony was found NOT guilty today for the murder of her 2 year old daughter. Even after her daughter was missing for 31 days and she never reported her...searching neck breaking, Chloroform on her computer ...her car having a dead body in it with Caylee's dead hair strand... and the list goes on...........The jury all agreed to a Not Guilty verdict on ALL charges except lying to the police.
Casey's charges were:
- First-degree murder
- Aggravated child abuse
- Aggravated manslaughter of a child
- 4 counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer:
- That she worked at Universal Orlando in 2008,
- That she left Caylee with a babysitter named Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez,
- That she told Jeffrey Hopkins and Juliette Lewis that Caylee was missing,
- That she received a phone call from Caylee on July 15, 2008.

Little Caylee may never get her justice...
but the person most of us thought killed her, her mother Casey Anthony, could be out of jail as early as this week!
The jury deliberated for 10 hours...we were hoping to hear how they got to this decision, but the jurors decided at this time not to speak to the media at this time.
If you were the jury, what would your verdict have been?
Here's some comments people have been saying online,
I am seriously disgusted ! Casey Anthony not guilty ?! Are you freaking kidding me . She deserves to rott in jail
Stop looking at #CaseyAnthonyVerdict from a emotional stand point. Looking at it from evidence found, and they found NOTHING.
If she's not guilty then who do they think killed baby Caylee? Way to fail justice system. Casey, you disgust me. #caseyanthonyverdict
it sounds like the Jury know people will question them if they show their face or they know they made a MISTAKE! #caseyanthonyverdict
The sadest thing about casey anthony is that she is now famous and will make money off of her daughters death!!!Nancey Grace, who has been vigorously covering the case since day 1, commented on her show tonight saying,
"The Devil Is Dancing Tonight"
He sure is.
Casey Anthony's parents, George and Cindy Anthony, and her brother Lee have released a statement through their attorney Mark Lippman following the not guilty verdict today in the most serious charges faced by the Florida mother:
While the family may never know what has happened to Caylee Marie Anthony, they now have closure for this chapter of their life. They will now begin the long process of rebuilding their lives.
Despite the baseless defense chosen by Casey Anthony, the family believes that the Jury made a fair decision based on the evidence presented, the testimony presented, the scientific information presented and the rules that were given to them by the Honorable Judge Perry to guide them.
The family hopes that they will be given the time by the media to reflect on this verdict and decide the best way to move forward privately.
The family also wanted the public to know that if anyone wanted to honor Caylee by leaving stuffed animals or other toys at any area near their home, that they would prefer those items be donated in Caylee's name to families in need, religious centers, or any other entity where the toys would be appreciated.
Casey Anthony was sentenced to 4 years on July 7th, 2011. Since she has already served over 3 years...Casey could be out any day now. We will keep you posted.
