The Casey case.  Amazing how one 22yo woman , accused of murdering her daughter has taken a life of it’s own.  We have come to know the people involved as KC, CA, GA, LA, LP, NG, JB, JG, AH, RM..etc.  We memorized dates and times of what transpired at Casey’s home, with her friends, where she ate, the date and time of  the murder.   We have discussed this over 1,000 of blogs and forums.  Some bloggers have gone even further.  Some “blog specialist” have spent thousands of hours putting together timelines, theories, cell pings and imbeccably written comments all for the purpose of proving just how intelligent and insightful “they” really are.  Don’t dare knock down their theory or belief.  They will cut you down and slice you up, zip duct tape over your face, if you dare.  They will recite what they believe much like a religious extremist.   I reluctantly include Christianity as an example because there are some people who do horrible things in the name of  “Christianity”.   Two examples come to mind. Jim Jones and David Koresh.  This is a fact.

With over 5000 pages of documents released via the internet, we are privy to much of what LE, defense attorneys, state defenders, forensic specialist, video experts, audio experts, etc, etc. are investigating. We are reading bits and pieces of information and sorting it out.  Preparing our post, making a case, creating doubt, enforcing facts to make them believable.  They will not back down because they know the facts or at least what they construed as facts. This is a fact. 

What is fact?  Here’s the definition.

  • a piece of information about circumstances that exist or events that have occurred; “first you must collect all the facts of the case”
  • a statement or assertion of verified information about something that is the case or has happened; “he supported his argument with an impressive array of facts”
  • an event known to have happened or something known to have existed; “your fears have no basis in fact”; “how much of the story is fact and how much fiction is hard to tell”
  • a concept whose truth can be proved; “scientific hypotheses are not facts”
  • Scientific hypotheses are not facts?  Does this means Dr. Garavaglia’s final conclusion is debatable?  Will this conclusion stand up to argument?  This I don’t know and neither does anyone else.   It is presumptious to assume there was a murder much less how, when, why and who.  An opinion is not a mistake.  It’s only an opinion.

    Conclusion/Opinion:  As often is the case with a skeletonized individual, the exact cause of death cannot be determined with certainty.  The manner of death is based on available information, including circumstances. 

     With this in mind, shouldn’t people be a tab bit more careful when choosing words to describe Casey?  Homicide is a strong word.  Murdering Tot Mom is worst.  This is my opinion.
