According to reports last night, Casey Anthony needed to be sedated after learning that a bag of bones containing a small child was located near her home.
I bet she did.
Interesting to compare how she had little to no reaction when a bag containing bones was found three weeks ago; of course, that is because she knew that wasn't her daughter. She knew where she had left that little girl - and that river, wasn't the location.
I am holding out hope that the state will bring the death penalty back on the table. It seems that reports from law enforcement are suggesting that a piece of duct tape was placed around the mouth of the child that was found.
Tape around a mouth means "Shut up. Be quiet." Tape around the mouth means that she could've potentially drugged her with chloroform to sedate her, then taped her to keep her quiet should she wake up. An accident by an irresponsible, foolish mother. But then, the question would be posed...why not remove the tape to try to resuscitate the child if she's unresponsive? Accidental death? I think not...
No, this evidence of tape clearly shows malice and forethought. Combined with Google searches she made that corroborate all the evidence found thus far, the case is clearly a Murder in the First Degree that would warrant the death penalty.
When I heard the news, I had such a mix of emotions; immediate sadness because even though I knew she was gone, it's difficult not to hold out a shred of hope. Though this was the news I had been longing for so that she could be at rest - my heart was very heavy. Excitement came next because I just could not believe the fact that this baby was found so close to home, and curiosity had me wondering why she wasn't found sooner - though it was abundantly evident that it had to do with the water levels. Finally anger and hostility settled in, this little girl being so "close to home" all this time... with duct tape around her mouth. Casey Anthony had a shred of truth in all of her lies, didn't she....
Again, my heart goes out to the Anthony family as a whole because this is a devastating situation that no family should ever have to go through; I just hope now they can see the situation for what it is, and unfortuantely embrace the fact that their daughter not only killed her beautiful, innocent daughter -- but destroyed their entire family.
