As for the State of Florida asking for the death I believe it was overly optimistic. The condition of Caylee Anthony's remains would have made cause of death difficult to determine. It gave the defense all they needed to insert the "she drown in the family pool and everybody covered it up because they were scared" or any number of hypothetical reasons that this clearly dysfunctional family could dream of. Probable, whether or not it happened. Probable cause and you will get no death sentence conviction. Perhaps some other charge that might put her behind bars for at least 15 to 20. I honestly believe the State thought there was some very incriminating evidence out there that never was. It is sad this little child had to endure this and we are left to wonder what really happened.
The system worked as the State could not prove guilt on the counts it sought. Right or wrong that was the way it was set up. It is hard to accept with cases like these. Would different counts such as child abuse or neglect have done better? We will never know.

I hope she is sued into oblivion and has to live under a bridge in Orange County somewhere as a crack whore. Maybe we will read of her grisly demise and no one will be brought to justice over it.
