It is common knowledge among those who know me even fairly well that I am prone to chase after rabbits, so to speak. Well, off I go down the bunny trail again. I realize there are multiple major issues regarding the Casey Anthony case, with both sides doing their level best to prove her either guilty or innocent of murder, amidst many other charges. So why am I so fixated on one point? I just cannot get past the tape thing.
Dr. G put it so well while she was on the stand being questioned: There is no excuse for a small child to have duct tape put over their mouth – period. But, if she supposedly drowned first, then why would you put duct tape over the mouth of a dead child?
Sorry, it just does not wash. I mean, listening to the details of how wild animals fed off Caylee’s body, how during a tropical storm it sat in inches and inches of water, quite frankly, it literally sickens me.
But why the tape? Why? I’m no world-renowned prosecuting attorney, but without being a courtroom rocket scientist, it would seem the tape was put over her mouth while she was still alive. Why? If she fell into the pool, was the tape over her mouth when she fell in? If so, why? If she was put into the trunk of the car alive, was the tape over her mouth then? Why?
I just can’t get past the tape thing.
