Casey Anthony: Prosecutors Admit They Missed Key Evidence
According to reports, prosecutors and investigators in the murder case against Casey Anthony admitted they overlooked a smoking gun that could have put the nail in the coffin of the accused murderer.
From the New York Post:
But now for the first time, Florida authorities are confirming the remarkable blunder.
“There was an oversight,” said Orange County [Fla.] Sheriff’s Capt. Angelo Nieves. “This has been a learning experience for investigators as well.”
Trial prosecutor Jeff Ashton said proof of the macabre web search could have been a crucial weapon. The defense had claimed Caylee accidentally drowned and Casey Anthony’s dad George Anthony ditched the body.
“It’s just a shame we didn’t have it,” Ashton said. “This certainly would have put the accidental death claim in serious question.”
