    We can never be sure of the truth.. whether she killed her or not will always remain uncertain. But what is a shame is that how the media has used this story to get their ratings up. Just imagine being in the spotlight for something like this. Read this article: http://radiomobiletech.com/blogposts/casey-anthony-continues-being-tweeted-fac ebooked-digged-apped.html it is good how through these different channels we are kept updated about the rest of the world but we can't deny they do misuse this power to get their ratings up like this scam that has been running on facebook.

      @Bonchucin , Sorry, you can't see for looking! Casey Anthony did, indeed, kill--murdered little Caylee, I mean! Watch and see how our Sovereign Lord proves and shows us all--as well as Casey, herself AND ALL HER DEFENSE ATTORNEYS! The Prosecution DID NOT LOSE THIS CASE!!! God Almighty is NOT going to let Casey and these EVIL ATTORNEYS get by with this--even if she comes to know Him as Savior and Lord! He says NOTHING WILL BE HIDDEN: GOOGLE it! It's several times in the Holy Bible! Also, Hosea Baez, Cheney Mason, Attorney (lady--I forgot her name now) ALL WILL HAVE TO BE ACCOUNTABLE TO GOD ALMIGHTY! THAT'S IN THE BIBLE AS WELL!!! Do you really think that they are going to get by the Lord God Almighty with insisting that George Anthony and Roy Kronk were the murderers??? NOPE!!! NEVER, EVER!!! God is PERFECT AND HIS HAND IS, INDEED, IN ALL OF THIS!! JUST WATCH HIM AT WORK!!! In Christ Jesus, Nellie Austin [nrha37@yahoo.com]
