The potential verdict-changing evidence that an Orlando TV uncovered about the Casey Anthony case involves an alleged damning internet search.
According to Channel 6 WKMG, on the afternoon Caylee Anthony died, allegedly there was a Google search on the Anthony family’s desktop computer for the term “fool-proof suffocation” on a browser primarily used by Casey Anthony using her password-protected account.
Although Casey Anthony’s defense lawyers were aware of the internet search, the bombshell evidence was never introduced at the Caylee Anthony trial because it was apparently missed by law enforcement investigators:
“… prosecutors — relying on woefully incomplete information from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office — never even saw the potentially damning computer browser evidence, until Local 6 revealed it to them last week.”
Defense attorney Jose Baez was “shocked” that the prosecution didn’t present the crucial computer-activity evidence. In Baez’s book about the case, he suggested that George Anthony did the search because he was considering suicide.
Casey Anthony prosecutor Jeff Ashton said, “It’s just a shame we didn’t have it. This certainly would have put the accidental death claim in serious question.”
The Sheriff’s Office apparently provided the prosecutors with an incomplete spreadsheet of the June 16, 2008 Firefox browser history, which meant “prosecutors went to trial unaware of 98.7 percent of the browser history records created that day, ” which amounted to about 1,200 entries including the one in question.
Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee in July 2011.
Do you think the cops botched the investigation into the death of Caylee Anthony?
