I agree with Anthony. OJ Simpson is as innocent in the murders of Nichole Brown and Ron Goldman as Anthony is in the killing of her daughter. We just disagree when it comes to what that means.
The 30-year-old is speaking out, five years after being found not guilty of murdering her toddler daughter during a live-cable television trial during which some commentators called her ‘America’s most hated mother’.
Two-year-old Caylee was reported missing in July 2008 by her grandmother. Anthony was arrested the next day. Skeletal remains were found in woods near the Anthony home in December and identified as Caylee’s.
After a trial of a month and a half, the jury, who conceded that Anthony had lied to the police, took less than 11 hours to find the mother not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter and aggravated child abuse.
Years before Anthony’s daughter went missing, Simpson was acquitted of killing his wife and her friend. Anthony, too, was acquitted, and she said both defendants were tried unfairly in the court of public opinion.
‘There are a lot of parallels. And I can empathize at least a little bit with his situation,’ Anthony said.
She explained how she had done through McKenna’s documents and had formed her own opinion on the case.
‘And, I don’t like the fact that after all these years – the system worked, and I’ve gone through Pat’s notes, I’ve gone through Pat’s files. I can say, independently – without just being biased because of my connection to the investigator – I can say from what I have researched, the timeline doesn’t make sense,’ she added.
Now, I’m waiting for Anthony’s version of “If I Did It.”
