    Our most infamous baby killing mother, accused, is Casey Anthony. Who was found not guilty in the worst verdict since OJ, in most Americans' view.

    Decades from now, a proceeding to declare her innocent (if one were possible) would reignite the hue and cry, I think.
    I personally think (from memory) that the forensic tests were botched and that helped have her charge reversed. There were no witnesses to her killing the child and there was no body, so any scenario presented to the court was merely speculative. One test that helped convict her was that of the dried blood in the boot of her car (trunk). That was later shown to be rustproofing.

    I do remember the media also became less rabid toward her after this, and again after the Fraser Island attack-that seemed to give credibility to her version.

    Just my amateur opinion. I am not a veterinarian.

    I think she did it. But if she did, she was punished much more harshly than she should have been.
    Can a mother BE "punished much more harshly than she should have been"...for killing her child? Infanticide is murder.

    Well, point taken. But that woman was also subjected to unprecedented heights of public hatred. If you consider there was no evidence that she tortured her baby, arguably, that was unfair.

    It's a strange old case.

    It's exposed the depths the Murdoch media would plummet (yes, I know, he's ours ). It was essentially a trial by media, as one judge noted it would be impossible to find an individual that wasn't influenced by the media content in order to form a jury.

    Yellow journalism of the most vile kind, I agree.

    Yes, and sadly Murdoch did the same thing to UK outlets before he bought Fox.

    BTW, have you seen this movie?



    Meryl Streep is horrifyingly bad in it, IMO. But then, I think she almost always sucks.

    Yes, I have seen it. I thought she did a good job, well I could tell she had watched a lot of the TV footage from the time. The strine in the accent was exaggerated, but that is often the case when US directors film scripts set here (every time I see 'On The Beach', I cringe).
    Thanks from Madeline
