Update: Caylee Marie Anthony murder *Casey Anthony murder trial Day 32: The defense rests (you really didn’t think she would testify did you??) and then, contempt of court!!

The day started out with Krystal Holloway/River Cruz on the stand. She stated the she had an intimate relationship with George Anthony (which he denies) and talked about the interviews she gave with the media. She received money from the Enquirer for her story (because they would not edited it, never mind that they are a tabloid, giving voice to the offbeat and weird, with headlines that are more sensationalism than truth). She was upset with the way the media was portraying her and she wanted her story to get out there. So much for caring about the victim, Caylee Marie Anthony. Whether there was an affair or not does not matter in getting justice. I know that the defense wanted to impeach George Anthony’s testimony. However, I don’t think it worked as well as they wanted. All of the Anthonys (George, Cindy & Lee) were called back to stand to talk about what they did for their pets that died. After that, the defense rested. The State is now giving their rebuttal case. They called Alina Burroughs, a CSI who took photos of Caylee’s clothing. After her testimony, court was recessed for the day.

Update: Caylee Marie Anthony murder *Casey Anthony murder trial Day 31: George Anthony’s suicide letter and the Kronks!

Today, most of the testimony centered around George Anthony’s suicide attempt and the letter he wrote. George was very emotional through most of this testimony and cried through much of it. Casey just sat there stone-faced as usual. George said he just wanted to be with Caylee. However, Jose Baez tried to make it sound like his attempt was not real, just for attention I suppose, but George let him know that it was a real attempt and that he wanted to die at that time. It was good to see Cindy support and comfort her husband afterwards. It could not be easy for either of them. However, George made a statement on the stand that surprised me to hear him actually say: “Something happened to Caylee, and Casey was last with her. One and one add up to two in my mind.”

Also called to the stand was Roy Kronk’s son, who contradicted some of what his father testified to when he was on the stand. Roy Kronk came back to the stand and answered questions about touching the skull with his meter stick. The last witness was a grief and trauma expert, Dr. Sally Karioth. She talked about how people handle grief differently and Casey’s partying and shopping, etc. could just be an extension of her grief. However, I don’t think she interviewed Casey, just used generalities for her testimony. I am just sure what good she did for the defense.

Update: Caylee Marie Anthony murder *Casey Anthony murder trial Day 30: Ray Kronk testifies and Lee Anthony contradicts Cindy Anthony’s testimony

Joe Jordan was the first witness of the day. He was a team leader with Texas EquuSearch, who did searches for Caylee, including the area where her remains were later found. They did not find anything when they were out there. Then, George Anthony returned to the stand. Jose Baez started right off asking George about Krystal Holloway/River Cruz. She was a volunteer for the search for Caylee. During opening statements, Jose Baez said that George had an affair with this woman. George denied this. They sparred back and forth for a while. Then Cindy Anthony testified that she did not hire any private investigator to search the Suburban Dr. area. When Lee Anthony testified after his mother, he contradicted what his mother said about this. Then Yuri Melich testified that Cindy told him about sending the private investigators to search the area. Then Roy Kronk, the person who discovered Caylee’s remains, was called to the stand. Jose Baez really grilled him about his calls to law enforcement in Aug. and Dec. He was also questioned about the reward money. In my opinion, Roy Kronk did not come across very well. He was very defensive, although quite polite. I do not think it was the best move for the defense to bring him in. But, then again, it is just my opinion! I also believe Casey is guilty as hell!

Update: Caylee Marie Anthony murder *Casey Anthony murder trial Day 27: Cindy and Lee Anthony testify, bitterness still in Lee’s voice

Today was emotional testimony from Cindy and Lee Anthony. Photos of Caylee in the pool were shown and Cindy Anthony said that Caylee was able to open the sliding glass door that led to the pool and she was able to climb up the ladder to the pool. However, she also stated that Caylee could not lift up the ladder to put it in place to get into the pool. She also stated that Caylee knew she was not allowed in the pool alone. Lee Anthony also testified and it was obvious how bitter he was with his family. He was upset because his family did not tell him that Casey was pregnant. They never talked about it with him at all before Caylee was born. When Casey gave birth to Caylee, Lee did not go to the hospital to see them, which he says now that he regrets. He was also questioned about the stains in the trunk, since the car belonged to him before it belonged to Casey. It was a very emotional day in court.

Update: Caylee Marie Anthony murder *Casey Anthony murder trial Day 29: Casey is competent & decomposition is discussed

Today it was said that the reason for the abrupt halt to court proceedings on Sat. morning was because the defense insisted on a competency hearing for Casey. They said she was unable to assist with her defense. However, experts evaluated her over the weekend and she was deemed competent to stand trial. Testimony started with Yuri Melich again to talk about phone records and cadaver dogs. After 2 witnesses testified about a drawing of the forensic bay where Casey’s car was being examined. Jason Forgey returned to the stand. His cadaver dog is the one that alerted to decomposition in Casey’s car. He was questioned more about the cadaver dogs. Dr. Kenneth Furton testified about decomposition and said that there is no known instrument that can accurately identify decomposition (personally, from what I have heard, the smell is a good indication). Sgt. John Allen, James Hoover and Dominic Casey all testified about video tapes that were made of Dominic Casey in the woods “looking for Caylee”. It appears to me that these tapes were made to be “sold to the highest bidder” Very sleazy indeed, especially when we are talking about the fact that the victim is a 2 year old child.

Parents Gone Wild! Stephanie Greene took drugs while breastfeeding and killed her baby

Alexis Greene

This really disgusts me. This is a very selfish, narcissistic, piece of trash egg donor. She did not care or love her baby, Alexis, who only lived 6 short weeks. This beautiful child deserved much better than this. She deserved a real mother, one who would love her and raise her to be an adult. Unfortunately, that did not happen. I can only hope now that justice will prevail.
