I guess I am behind, but I first saw it on 48 Hours a few days ago–the story of Caylee/Casey Anthony.  There isn’t a whole lot of credible information out there put together in a readable story, so this is about the best I could find.  It is amazing how much press this murder has attracted, from full-time blogs to newspaper serials/archives, to the television true crime activists and talk shows.  And the online comments!  Here is an example of all kinds of wild theories about Caylee’s possible father.  In an unusual example of the web-based media, some of the comment threads on the blogs offer an excellent summary of the “facts.”  It is amazing the extent to which some people follow the case.

Second (and here), according to defense attorney Cheney Mason:

“(It is) the biggest case with the least evidence that I’ve seen.  Ever.  Anywhere.”
