Caylee Anthony . . . I think my train is leaving now.
Friday, December 19, 2008
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, the breaking news in the Caylee Anthony case has the talking heads literally squawking. I can say this because I am one, and though I can't speak for the rest of them, it's my opinion that the speculations, predictions, and eventual outcomes have turned tiresome.In case you’re one of those in the cave, just last week an Orange County Florida utilities worker stopped by a wooded area to use the restroom. As he walked back into the woods he saw a garbage bag and proceeded to kick it, sending a small human skull tumbling out. Obviously horrified, the man called 911. Needless to say, the human remains were found less than a quarter of a mile from the home of George and Cindy Anthony. Subsequently, the investigation into missing Caylee simply exploded—along with the media.Now, for the last seven days, we have been subjected to expert after expert commenting on what the police could have possibly found, how it will be processed, whether or not the remains are really those of little Caylee, will the grandparents be charged or should they be charged, was there duck tape around the mouth or just on the garbage bag? These are just a few. As I’ve said, I am just as guilty but have grown weary of my own commentating as well as others. The bottom line is that the Orange County Sheriff’s Department has done a phenomenal job of keeping the evidence and circumstances surrounding the remains under lock and key—they’re doing their job. We can all speculate until the end of time, but we won't know a thing until the sheriff’s department gives us the information. Sorry, I refuse to get my information from the likes of Leonard Padilla.The only information we know for a fact, at this very moment, is that an innocent 2-year-old girl is missing and is most likely dead—something we won’t know for sure until there's a positive identification. We know that her mother is sitting in jail and charged with the murder. We know that she has acquired her own dream team consisting of those anxious to jump aboard the Casey Anthony Circus and Media Magnet’s Train. We know that her parents have their own attorney, and the sheriff’s department is still processing the scene.We will all know soon enough if the remains found at the scene were Caylee Anthony’s. As for the condition of the remains, and other evidence found, these are facts that will most likely come out at the trial—and we’ll all know then. Needless to say, we should all take a deep breath, sit back, and let law enforcement do their jobs effectively.I apologize for such a short post but I have to run, I am a scheduled guest on a radio show giving my expert law enforcement opinion. The topic?Tweet
