- Mother of a missing child went to party and even took part in a ‘hot body’ contest.
- Case with a widespread media attention and shock at the not-guilty verdict.
The death of Caylee Anthony and the trial of Casey Anthony -- one of the biggest media circuses around a murder case in the American history. Maybe only O. J. Simpson got more attention. A morbid fascination stocked the Anthony's family and even their neighbors.
And nobody liked the fact that while her daughter’s lifeless body was decomposing in the woods, Casey was partying at a night club and got a tattoo that read, “La Bella Vita,” Italian for “the beautiful life,” on her left shoulder. Whether she murdered her daughter or not is another thing.
One thing for sure -- she did love to party.
One of Casey's defense attorneys Cheney Mason blamed the media for the passionate hatred directed toward Anthony and described it as a "media assassination." Go figure.
Most likely she got away with it just like Karla Homolka did in Canada.
