Even if they could try her again because of this "new evidence," it's still merely circumstantial. Her defense would just say her father did the search, not her. It can't be proved that SHE did the search, and even if she did, that still isn't Evidence of murder.
The thing that gets me about her, is the enabling mother. Apparently the family foundation recently liquidated, and according to news reports the guess is the money has been funneled to Casey by mommy dearest. Nobody sued, so it's either true or they don't even want to bother trying to sue over it. And when the grandparents were on Dr Phil he didn't pay them, but supposedly a lot of money went to the foundation. I guess we'll never know either way.
I don't know why they keep publicizing this, because there's nothing anyone can do to her. I feel sorry for the woman she named as the kidnapper, because it ruined her life.
Right, but you'd still need new evidence, and since the new evidence of the computer search is still circumstantial and not tangible, it'd be the same thing over again. After the verdict the jurors said that they all felt confident she was guilty, but the law's the law, and they couldn't convict on how they felt, they had to base their conviction on evidence, and the evidence was not there. Pretty much like poor Natalee Holloway - if you're going to murder someone, make sure the body either isn't found or else isn't found until it is far far decomposed.
There is no way to say which family member did that search unfortunately. I think the whole family shared that PC.
Some commentator on the news this a.m. was saying that they didn't think even this would push the verdict over to guilty. They said the defense would claim her father had done the search because he wanted to kill himself over the kid's accidental drowning.
What a bunch of shoddy police work, though. So very unfortunate that there will always be questions - even more now. Insult to injury to that poor kid.
From what I read somewhere (and I'm sorry I can't quote the source) the search was during a time they could prove the father wasn't home. More importantly the next search on Firefox (immediately afterwards) was for MySpace, on which only Casey had an account.
