"Just because she's a liar doesn't mean she's a killer"
Excellent review of the notorious Casey Anthony case.
Despite its breathless, kaleidoscopic presentation, this episode features some perspectives I hadn't noticed before, such as comments from Diane Fanning, who wrote a book about the case, quotes from a roommate of Casey's boyfriend, and all manner of other less-than-renowned commentators, one of whom cited a poll showing that Anthony is more hated than Osama bin Laden!
Ms. Fanning discussed how Anthony started lying in early in adolescence. We learn about how she didn't graduate from Colonial High School in Orlando, due, apparently, to lacking certain credits (it would have been nice to have this clarified), how she tried to hide her pregnancy from her family for months, and how her mother, a nurse, was in the dark along with everyone else.
In the Anthony family, a commentator says, "if they didn't think about things and didn't talk about them, they'd go away."
We also get an idea about some of the confusing or misleading evidence put forth by the prosecution, clarifying how a jury could have set free the mother of a child seen partying days after her daughter supposedly went missing.
