Casey Anthony Released: Did Prosecution Conceal Key Evidence?

casey anthony

Casey Anthony did not search for "chloroform" 84 times.

Casey Anthony has officially been released from jail, and at this point, her whereabouts are unknown. Casey is believed to be hiding out somewhere in the United States, though where Casey Anthony actually is will likely be kept a secret for her own safety.

So many people were outraged and shocked by the Casey Anthony verdict, and after she was acquitted of the murder of her daughter, Caylee, we may never truly know what happened to that beautiful little girl.

One of the key elements of the trial was the prosecution’s testimony that Casey Anthony searched for the term “chloroform” a total of 84 times on her home computer. A software designer named John Bradley is the person who testified that there were 84 searches, but he has since retracted his findings. He now claims that there was actually only one search for the word, not 84 as originally reported.

Bradley is attributing the mistake to a software error, and he discovered the glitch back in June. He then gave the prosecution the new report, but the jury never wound up seeing it.

Bradley said, “I gave the police everything they needed to present a new report. I did the work myself and copied out the entire database in a spreadsheet to make sure there was no issue of accessibility to the data.”

If John Bradley’s claims are true, then it looks as though the prosecution may have concealed a key piece of evidence that could have potentially influenced the Casey Anthony verdict. Granted, she was found not guilty anyway, but had the verdict been different, the prosecution would possibly be facing an appeal at this point.
