The Case
Worked in 2 major Cases
Casey Anthony
Legal Ananyst for Fox News
Currently running for Circuit Court Judge in Orange and Osceola Countries: August 2014
Room For Improvement
Didn't check into everything the brother said
Rickie had 5 different stories of what happened
Only accepted the story that included Stacy being involved
Took a more personal aspect to make sure Stacy was arrested
Did not check into the story of the movie at 6 and dinner afterward
Did not look at the E-Pass which showed the mom being 40 minutes away from home at 5:53
Could not verify that the property being sold at the yard sale was Marilyn's
Lack of physical evidence presented against her
Recommendations for the Case
Justifiable homicide:
father abused children
mother stood aside and watched
Speedy Trial
using a speedy trial forced the prosecutors to drop charges that did not have enough evidence to back it up
the suicide note " we had a part in Mother's leaving"
Suicide notes
Marilyn Kananen's House
garage where Richard Kananen was found
Relation to the Class
This book did not really relate to the class material
was written from a more personal perspective
did not have much to do with the investigation
talked more about the case and the troubles it caused her
Recommendations for the Book
The book is interesting but very unorganized and presents itself only as a personal experience
