Orlando, FL - Yeah, we knew that was coming. Defense attorney Jose Baez has written a new book, Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story, in which he posits that (surprise!) Casey Anthony is a nutjob. Can I get a “well, DUH,” up in here?
In case you’ve been living in an Amish family (or a cave), Casey Anthony is the mother of Caylee Marie Anthony, the adorable toddler who was reported missing on July 15, 2008. Caylee had actually been missing since June 9 of the same year, and was found dead several months later, duct tape wrapped around her skull, a creepy heart sticker over what remained of her mouth.
Casey was charged and acquitted of first-degree murder in one of the great travesties and tragedies of the Florida judicial system last year. The case broke our servers and doubled our membership, and there may have been a pizza incident that landed us on Fox News, so, y’know, it’s close to my heart.
Now, Casey’s defense attorney is just gonna keep on defending his client, yammering on about how no sane person does the things that Casey did. I can’t really argue with that – it takes a special breed of antisocial personality to lose your kid and gain a couple of boyfriends, go clubbing and post the pics to the internet, and get a poorly done tattoo, all while your child rots in the woods.
But Baez goes on (and on, for 421 pages) about how Casey was freaked out by her father’s alleged sexual abuse. In some detail, I’m told, though I refuse to spend money on the book. Jose also trots out the defense theory that Caylee drowned in the pool and George Anthony disposed of the body, because that’s what good daddies do when they’re not molesting you.
Personally, I’m curious. Does Jose Baez believe the crap he’s spouting, or is he just trying to make three years of back salary off his client? I hope it’s the latter. But just in case, there’s a stack of Dreamin’ Demon Brand vomit bags in the corner. Get you one if you’re planning to read his book. Then let me know, in the comments, how much it sucked.Tags: book, Casey Anthony, Caylee Anthony, Jose Baez, Presumed Guilty
