Lawyer Wants Pics of Caylee's Remains

Casey Anthony's attorneys have asked a judge to force the prosecution to hand over three discs of photos of little Caylee Anthony's remains.

Caylee Anthony

The prosecution in the case was supposed to hand over the discs, which contain images of the little girl's body and X-rays, to the defense this week. But in a motion filed Tuesday, the State Attorney's Office asked to halt the delivery of the discs, citing concerns that the images will be reproduced and sold.

The state claims that because of the huge interest in the case, photos of Caylee have already commanded a large price tag. They're asking the judge to place special restrictions on the copying of the images, so they're not sold to the media when they hand them over. They're also asking a judge to place limits on just who Casey's attorneys can show the pictures to.

Casey Anthony's attorney Jose Baez says the prosecution's request creates an "undue and unheard of burden" on the defense.

The hearing is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

In related news, the Florida Corrections Department has still not decided whether he will allow Casey Anthony to watch her daughter's funeral on television, although a spokesman for the Orange County, Fla. jail said Monday it was possible.

3-year-old Caylee Anthony went missing in July. Her remains were found last month. Her mother Casey currently sits in a Florida jail, charged with the first degree murder of her daughter.

A very workable solution to Baez us for him to be told he can view the videos in the courtroom while the jury watches and not until then. There is nothing more to be made of them, it is what it is, a dead childs bones only. He can not learn anything more from the bones than the prosecution did. We have been told a limited amount of what was found and we are alright without looking at the discs. Certainly, somebody would move in on that possibility and go sell them to the mongers of gruesome or some sleazy underground newspaper. This child went through enough, she should be buried now without any futher delay. The photos should be kept under lock and key until trial date which can not come too soon to suit me. Let’s get it on and over with. Enough of the silly games played by Baez, he will see just what gave law enforcement the ammunition needed to prosecute Casey. He knows her lies, her evil personna and he is trying to keep her position innocent. It simply won’t work in this case. Each day that goes by, convinces me for one more and more of her guilt by actions that have been demonstrated by both her and the whole family. She did it, bottom line and her family covered for her. Nobody should be able to get a book published on this story, no movie should be made to funnel money into the pockets of anyone. Just bury the baby and give her a final resting place, no fanfare, no mommie dearest and no media, no tv cameras at all. Casey should not be allowed at any funeral or memorial service for Caylee, she had no love for her child, she killed her and lied about it to save her sorry self. Let her rot in jail as she caused her child to rot in that garbage bag in a wooded lot….alone and unloved. She deserves no favors, no creature comforts and no visitors, ever. She should spend the remainder of her life in solitary confinement with no possible way for her to see or hear another human voice. She is nothing more than dust to the world now, let her exist alone forever. She did not want what she had, got in her way so now that her daughter is gone and no trouble to her, lets see if she wins a hot body contest in jail. No visitors, no comforts, no radio or tv, no magazines or books and certainly no candy bars. No showers so she won’t need cosmetics or lotions, just let her rot as she did her baby girl in that field. She already stinks loud enough to smell her across this nation.

Helen….THANK YOU!! You are exactly right, this baby has been thru enough so this crap needs to stop and stop now. The Anthony’s need to put CAYLEE FIRST FOR ONCE….forget Casey, let her ROT! She hasn’t lifted a finger to help with any of this mess that she has created & Cindy, George & Lee haven’t either! I have tried to put myself in the Anthony’s shoes and have sympathy for them but I cannot do it…they don’t even have the decency to put little Caylee to rest & this may sound horrible to say but that poor baby is better off with God than with her own family who obviously don’t care enough about her to give her a proper burial! SHAME ON EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM….CINDY, GEORGE, LEE & CASEY are all dispicable, poor excuses for human beings! They are disgusting!!

Helen - you are using common sense and I’m afraid that is not allowed in this courtroom. Money has been made and will continue to be made - that is the American way. I don’t think anyone will be able to stop it. Be assured that any money made off of this murder will bring more tragedy to those who profit from it. That is the true law.

It is all such a tragedy, however it would have also been a tragedy for Caylee to grow up in the middle of such people. Not a family member or friend cared about her - she is off with a “nanny” traveling all over Florida and everyone knows Casey’s financial status and that she is a liar, but no one stepped up to really check it out - to see what’s up that for a month she hasn’t been seen.

I know Casey kept simple-minded people around her like her family because everyone was brainwashed and accepted whatever came out of her mouth. OOOH - don’t question Casey - she might get mad…

I wouldn’t give any of the family members immunity - they chose the lies over the well-being of their granddaughter/niece and they allowed the cover-up and her body to decay next to them - alone.

All George worried about for that month was that Casey hadn’t changed the oil in her car - all Cindy cared about was that money had been stolen from her - and Lee didn’t even try to reach her. That poor little girl.

Caylee has returned to her true home now, but her story has a lot of people more focused on family values and I think opening our eyes to the fact that a lot more children are treated like they are just “in the way”. We bring a child into this world - they never asked to be born - and then treat them like they are a bother - too much work - and getting in the way of your life?

Hopefully some will realize from this story that a child is pure love - not a doll to dress up - show off and put aside when our life is more important. They are a gift that gives you unconditional love - treasure it.

Good afternoon. The most erroneous stories are those we think we know best - and therefore never scrutinize or question.
I am from Guinea-Bissau and , too, and now am writing in English, give please true I wrote the following sentence: “The jacket deduction carries on the credit insurance nowadays for 7 spans.”

Waiting for a reply ;), Mander.

Starting a sentence with a number (3, last paragraph)? Where’s the copyeditor on this one?
