Casey Anthony laughs during bug expert testimony

In the second day of the defense laying out their case, Casey Anthony laughed out loud during the questioning of her own “bug expert” witness on the stand.


Assistant State Attorney Jeff Ashton was cross-examining defense witness Dr. Tim Huntington, an insect expert, about a study he used where he placed pigs in the trunk of a car to emulate conditions in Casey’s car where the prosecution allege evidence of a decomposed body was found.



Ashton said that the pigs were not wrapped in blankets and bags the way Caylee’s remains were when they were allegedly placed in the trunk of the car.


“Why didn’t you wrap your pigs in a blanket?” that state attorney asked. Casey Anthony laughed at his question, the first emotion she has shown in days.


The state attorney also had Huntington admit that when he examined Casey’s car two years after Caylee disappeared it smelled and while he originally said it was the scent of garbage he admitted that there was not any trash in the trunk.


Casey is being tried for the first-degree murder of her daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony. She disappeared on June 16, 2008 and Casey’s defense claim she drowned in the family pool and her father George Anthony helped her cover-up the death and lie about it.

The Plot Thickens: Video Shows That Parking Attendants May Have Killed High School Grad In Self Defense

My how the tables have turned.

What the father should have done, what anybody should do when they suspect somebody has stolen from them, is call 911. The responding cops would almost certainly have done what they could to solve the mystery of the missing graduation present, whatever the father’s past with the law.

Instead, the father hit one attendant with the shovel, injuring his arm. Both attendants ran to the shed and locked the door.

At this point, the son responded as if the father were a quarterback calling a play. The son is said to have forced his way through the hut’s door with the same speed and power that might have taken him to the NFL.

The son may have been following his father’s example or he may have imagined he was defending Dad. Police say he began to pummel the attendants.

One of them stabbed the son with a shiv fashioned from sharpened steel and duct tape. The son died in his graduation suit.

After viewing the video and questioning all involved, police seemed ready to believe the attendants acted in self defense. The father was charged with assault.

Moral of the story, don’t be a hero, don’t be a gangsta, call the police and let them do their job.
