The family of missing Caylee Anthony have maintained for some time that the truth about her disappearance will come out during her mother, Casey’s trial. Perhaps it may be sooner.
ORLANDO — A new report says lawyers for Casey Anthony are trying to convince prosecutors not to ask for the death penalty.
The Orlando Sentinel is reporting attorneys gave a packet to prosecutors, which talked about problems with evidence, and why Casey’s case does not fit the state’s usual criteria for the death penalty.
Wftv is reporting, ” Defense Team: Caylee Could’ve Been Poisoned By Chloroform”.
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla.— Publicly Casey Anthony’s defense team has always insisted that CayleeAnthony is alive. They did it as late as Wednesday.
“We all believe she’s alive,” said Jose Baez during a hearing at the Orange County Courthouse on Wednesday.
But Eyewitness News has learned that behind the scenes, the defense sent 30 pages of documents to prosecutors. In those documents, Casey’s lawyers argued that if Caylee is dead, “it was almost certainly a tragic accident.” The documents also said Caylee could’ve been poisoned by Chloroform or she could have died while she was sedated. They said the cause of death could have been an unwitting overdose of a sedative.

Detective Yuri Melich asked Anthony, a former deputy sheriff in Trumbull County, Ohio, to discuss what he initially told him about the odor in the Pontiac Sunfire.
“I believe that there’s something dead back there,” Anthony said. “And I hate to say the word human . . . I mean that law-enforcement stuff that I did, we caught people out in the woods, in a house, in a, in a car. So I know what it smells like. It’s a smell that you never . . . never get rid of.”
