Casey Anthony 'suffocation' evidence botched by Sheriff's Office

Hearing the name "Casey Anthony" can send a chill down parents' spines. The torment she was accused of delivering to her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, is simply horrifying.

Back in July, Anthony was found not guilty of killing her daughter and was also found not guilty of aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter of a child. Anthony, 25, was convicted only of four misdemeanor counts of lying to investigators who were looking into the child's June 2008 disappearance. Now after the verdict has been released in this high profile case, according to the Huffington Post, a local Florida TV station, (WKMG), claims it has a “bombshell” that never made it into the defense evidence against Anthony.

On the day that Anthony’s daughter Caylee died, WKMG reports, prosecutors were unaware of a Google search for "foolproof suffocation" made from the Anthony family's computer. In defense attorney Jose Baez’s book , “Presumed Guilty," the Google search was exposed, but the news station uncovered more evidence that could have been a definite game changer in the trial. WKMG found out that the person who Googled “foolproof suffocation,” was not Casey Anthony’s father, George Anthony, but instead Casey.

Even though the Orange County Sheriff’s Office had possession of the Anthony’s computer, the prosecution team never learned of the search. The Huffington Post reports that the Sheriff’s Office provided the prosecution with a spreadsheet containing less than 2 percent of the Anthony’s internet activity on that day.

"There was an oversight,” sheriff’s Capt. Angelo Nieves told the WKMG and was released by the Huffington Post. “This has been a learning experience for investigators as well.”

Linda Drane Burdick, a prosecutor in the Anthony case, reiterated to WFTV that her office had no knowledge of the search at the time of the trial.

“I’m certain we would have used it,” Burdick said to WFTV.

Everyone knows Casey was guilty and the idiots in Florida set her free. The whole nation was in shock that day. Casey will rot in hell one day, I can only hope that she is getting a little taste of that every day she is alive. I look forward to the day I read about how justice finally catches up to her. It can’t be soon enough!

Even an amateur hack could have produced the search history of the Anthony computer. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office should be charged with incompetence.

We all know Casey is gulity. She might think she got away with it now but she does have to stand in front of God someday. The true judgement day.
I would think that her parents would come forward and stand up for Caylee. I think the whole family has something to answer for.
I hope Casey has sleepless nights for the rest of her life for the death of Caylee. Jail seems way to easy for her, maybe death the same way Caylee died?
May Caylee rest in peace.
