I don’t think it matters one way or another. The most compelling testimony about the presence of a body in the trunk of the car,to me, has always been the anecdotal evidence–the people who experienced the odor from that trunk–most notably Cindy Anthony who said, “It smells like there’s been a dead body in the damned car.”
In other Anthony news this week, the State Justice Administrative Commission questioned Casey’s indigency, noting that she just added three new lawyers to her team. Supposedly they are all working pro bono but does that mean they are making a limitless investment of time that includes a protracted trial? Or are they simply offering a finite bit of energy, sufficient to sweeten the deal that the defense might be able to get from the state before a trial begins?
I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens in May. But it wouldn’t surprise me if there never was an actual trial. It wouldn’t be the first time that I’ve seen a plea bargain announced on the same day that jury selection was to begin.
