It’s difficult to be a journalist in Florida without covering some angle of the Casey Anthony trial.
I wrote my first story in August of 2008. Then again in Dec. 2008 when the remains of Casey’s daughter were found in Orlando.
Now, in the past week, three more stories. And a video! It’s impossible to get away from this news.
Today’s story looks at why people are so frustrated by the jury’s verdict:
“..for the public, that may be one of the most frustrating parts of the case: Despite all the speculation and theories, they will never know how or why Caylee Anthony died.
“I think we know as much as we ever will know,” said Beth Hough, a 27-year-old administrative assistant from Chicago who followed the trial. “We don’t know exactly what happened, but if we did, it would help people to finally just move on and to end the story.”
That’s what’s missing: an ending. And because we’re so used to neatly packaged, hour-long TV crime dramas where the bad guy is usually put behind bars, the fact Anthony could be convicted only of lying to police has left people unsatisfied. And they have been vocal about their dismay, turning to Twitter and Facebook to vent their frustration.
