Dr. G: Inside the Caylee Anthony Case - A Shocking Crime (2012)

The tragic story of 2 year old Caylee Anthony (the missing little Florida girl whose body would eventually be discovered near her family home a few months later) shocked, terrified and stunned a nation when the little girl’s mother Casey would be arrested for, charged with and in a dramatic made-for-TV trial, be exonerated of the murder …

“The trial lasted six weeks, from May to July 2011. The prosecution sought the death penalty and alleged Casey murdered her daughter to free herself from parental responsibilities by administering chloroform and applying duct tape. The defense team, led by Jose Baez, countered that the child had drowned accidentally in the family’s swimming pool on June 16, 2008, and that George Anthony disposed of the body. The defense contended that Casey lied about this and other issues because of a dysfunctional upbringing, which they said included sexual abuse by her father. The defense did not present evidence as to how Caylee died, nor evidence that Casey was sexually abused as a child, but challenged every piece of the prosecution’s evidence, calling much of it “fantasy forensics”. Casey did not testify. On July 5, 2011, the jury found Casey not guilty of first degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter of a child, but guilty of four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. With credit for time served, she was released on July 17, 2011. A Florida appeals court overturned two of the misdemeanor convictions on January 25, 2013. ” – Wikipedia

  1. I felt this documentary was very well done. Very informative, and included all the elements that any documentary should, but seldom do. I also find it hard to believe that I am the very first to post a comment. The veiwers out there should be grateful for the opportunity to watch these films without charge. The least they could do is take a moment out of their busy lives to post a few words in appreciation. Thank you so much!
