I should tell you, this is an intellectual exercise to help me understand how others think and deduce circumstantial evidence! Because, when someone says, “I really don’t know what exactly happened; they just couldn’t prove, absolutely, that it was her!;” well, usually they have doubts because they have alternate theories.
So, Casey Anthony is Not Guilty. Because the State didn’t prove beyond “any and all reasonable doubt.” BTW, “any and all” wasn’t actually in the instructions, was it? Okay, folks, let’s theorize. . . .
Not just, “Well, I think George was there,” etc. No, no. I’d like to see detailed theories pointing to someone else—George, if you like—or anyone else. But, no dropping off the cliff stories (like George to Kronk)! Some theory, which would meet all the elements we’re aware of.
I’ve written three (not all posted) with Casey as the responsible party—not necessarily 1st degree murder. Tried a couple with George as a co-conspirator, but both times was left with big gaps. So, get into your best mystery writer mode and tell me a convincing story.
Think of it as a coping mechanism; a way to think your way through a crime/accident we can’t quite “get;” allow your mind to work, element by element, to a reasonable conclusion you can understand. Might just help many of us cool off a little—and regain our composure, so to speak. Can you do it?
