According to the alternate jury who has been the only juror speaking up on behalf of the 12 jurors seen above, they believed that Caylee’s death was an accident that snowballed. That term was the exact one used by George’s mistress River Cruz. They believed River and what she said George had told her about Caylee’s death being and accident that snowballed.
The alternate said that they also believed that George knew about it and helped in the cover up. If that is the case, now it finally makes sense to me that that George was not involved in the family interrogation when Casey was questioned by her mother and Lee as to what happened to Caylee.
They also did not like it when George was belligerent with Jose Baez. They did not like how he argued with Jose and how he spoke to Jose. The jury loved Jose Baez. I have always told you this since day one. I have always said how a jury would like Jose because of how he presents himself and I was correct in that they did like him.
They did not like George and I knew they wouldn’t. They did not like that he cheated on his wife and had an affair with River Cruz. They did not like that he lied as they believed he had an affair.
They also did not believe the “smell of death” that George spoke of in relation to the car when he picked it up. They said that George having been in LE would have reported it to the police. He said the man with George who was with him when he picked up the car didn’t smell it, so they did not buy what George said.
They also said they they didn’t believe the body was in the trunk and that none of them could see a stain. The also found the hair in the trunk to be a problem.
Because they liked and trusted Jose so much, they believed what he told them about a very serious accident that was covered up. In addition they did not like Ashton and felt he di not prove his case. Likewise, they did not like it when Ashton sparred with Jose Baez.
The jurors also believed the myriad of Casey’s friends who came forth and said she was a good mother, according to the alternate.
About Casey’s lying, he said that Casey lied years before anything happened to Caylee and that wa just how her dysfunctional family operated.
Once again, I believed that they were swayed by Baez because of his passion and how well he presented his and Casey’s side to them.
The alternate said that he wanted to know from the prosecution, how Caylee died and that is a question we will never know for sure. He said that he wanted them to have presented more evidence
The alternate is very brave to speak out in all of the morning shows and said that the other jurors will not come forward.
In fact the media set up chairs with the jurors numbers on them and no one showed up. Based on public sentiment, the jurors are now afraid to speak up. They are afraid of death threats like the one;s Cindy and George received. They want to go home to their lives in Pinnelas County and be done with this stressful six-week experience.
Finally he praised Judge Perry and the Sheriff’s Department for treated them well when they were sequestered. www.drlillianglass.com
