its just that their case was shit. No evidence of where, why and how. Basically the defense's whole case was that the prosecutors didnt have a case. They didnt even bother putting forward any real alternative chain of events apart from some possible drowning theory, they basically said 'you cant find her guilty because no matter how much circumstantial evidence there is you cant prove beyond a reasonable doubt how she died and where and come up with a strong motive.'
From my reading about the place it seems crazy what went down. Casey making up stories for a whole month about where the kid was. Then saying the kid was kidnapped by the babysitter(a person who didnt even know who Casey was). The car being found with what smelled like a dead body in the trunk. Traces of chloroform found in trunk. google searches on the computer for 'how to make chloroform' and 'breaking a neck'. Body of child found 6 months later with tape found round its head and traces of chloroform. The day after the kid went missing Casey was out partying and sleeping with her boyfriend. Sketchy diary entries about making the right decision and being happy now etc.
1) The Defense in any trial DON'T put forward "any real alternative chain of events". The burden of proof is on the prosecution to prove to a jury that the defendant is guilty beyond reasonable doubt.
2) "you cant find her guilty because no matter how much circumstantial evidence there is you cant prove beyond a reasonable doubt how she died and where and come up with a strong motive." - ummmmm, yes, so what? Flip it around - if someone was convicted of murdering a child on purely circumstantial evidence and a prosecution unable to provide a significant motive then people would be up in arms and the case would collapse in appeal.
youre not disagreeing with me. I wasnt saying she should have been found guilty, i was merely saying she is guilty.
There are just too many things that dont add up.
If anyone hasn't read about the case, then go here to have a look:

Even if you had to argue the fact that she could have been in shock etc... (to explain her ridiculous behaviour during the 31 days where Caylee was not reported missing) she has shown ZERO remorse what so ever - in fact every tape,interview, 911 call that has her talking she doesn't even mention her child once
Remorse (in the compassion sense) for the loss of her child and the pain it is causing her family. Remorse for stealing thousands from her parents and her grandfather's pension fund - that was paying for his hospital care not to mention
had there not been the chance of the death penalty.
