Jane Vallez Mitchell of HLN's Issues today gave an example of circumstantial evidence that i thought was very insightful and easy to understand although not exactly the definition of the words in my dictionary.
She said "you wake up in the morning and go outside to get the newspaper. It's been thrown on the grass which is wet and the paper is soaked through. The sky is dark and cloudy and the trees and all the plants are wet, the houses and cars all have water droplets all over them and theres puddles of water in the street. You didn't hear or see the rain but you know obviously it has rained during the night."
My dictionary which is old and grey says circumstantial means "incidental, not essential and not important" What???
It most definitely had been raining and i think even a dimwit can figure that out.
And so can a jury who heard all about Casey Anthonys lies and her mysterious actions on the day her daughter was last seen with her driving away. That along with the many experts who testified as well as the many incidences told of her life tells a tale of which there's no mistaking that she killed the child and covered her tail while the body decomposed.
The jury didn't need to have any cause of death specified as Caylee was a healthy 3 yr. old. It's proof enough that the kid was found dead, duct taped, triple bagged and thrown away like trash and then mama enjoyed her freedom for 31 days. There's just no excuse for coming back with not guilty.
Just like in the example from Jane all it takes is common sense to know what happened. Anthony is guilty as hell, there's just no other answer.
