“The case against Anthony, who had faced the possibility of the death penalty if found guilty of murdering her daughter, was short on forensic evidence, such as Caylee’s time or manner of death, Berman said.

“Berman said popular television show ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’ has influenced jurors in recent years, by giving them the false impression every case has the same clear-cut forensic evidence featured in that fictional series.

“‘There’s been a lot of speculation that lay jurors have now gotten even less likely to convict, because they’re under the false impression that every case is going to have some sort of forensic smoking gun,’ he said.”

“While the family may never know what has happened to Caylee Marie Anthony, they now have closure for this chapter of their life. They will now begin the long process of rebuilding their lives.

“Despite the baseless defense chosen by Casey Anthony, the family believes that the Jury made a fair decision based on the evidence presented, the testimony presented, the scientific information presented and the rules that were given to them by the Honorable Judge Perry to guide them.

“The family hopes that they will be given the time by the media to reflect on this verdict and decide the best way to move forward privately.

“The family also wanted the public to know that if anyone wanted to honor Caylee by leaving stuffed animals or other toys at any area near their home, that they would prefer those items be donated in Caylee’s name to families in need, religious centers, or any other entity where the toys would be appreciated.”
