The story is ongoing and each twist and turn as confusing and damning as the last. This time, a defense memo apparently reveals that if the death of Caylee Anthony did occur, it would have been caused by an "unwitting dose of sedative and attributed to chloroform" as explained on Nancy Grace.
If you remember, there was confirmed evidence of chloroform
found in the trunk of Casey Anthony's car, along with the confirmed evidence of decomposed human remains and DNA evidence of Caylee.
The defense's memo, a written document, uses words like "almost certainly" and "tragic accident" to explain the death as an overdose of a sedative. This is contrary to Joe Baez' claim that Caylee is still alive, although he still supports that claim.
In the CNN, Nancy Grace report, she did say that the memo was "not for the public" and that it had been "leaked."
Drew Petrimoulx, a reporter covering the story, explained in the report how the alleged kidnapping of Caylee and her being taken to Mexico wasn't even discussed.
The defense team is trying to have the death penalty removed from the table
, using pictures of Casey Anthony as a baby to play upon the prosecution's emotions. They are also arguing points of youth and possible mental illness, with one of her attorney's actually wanting Casey to be examined by a mental professional, a request that Baez has disallowed as lead attorney.
The search for her missing body was suppose to resume this past weekend by Texas based EquuSearch.
