The Casey Anthony Murder Trial: Guilty? Or Innocent?

Have you been following the Casey Anthony Murder Trial? Who presented the best case? The prosecution? Or the defense?

Somehow I got sucked into this fiasco by waking up too early and flipping on Tru-TV.  So, after six weeks of the prosecution alleging Casey is a party girl who had a toddler daughter that didn’t fit into her lifestyle of heavy drinking, partying, a risque sex life and more lies than all U.S. Presidents combined, does all this make it easy for the jury?  Do the countless lies she has been caught in make things look bad for her?  Or does it put enough reasonable doubt on the table to make it hard for the jury to take capital murder off the table?  Her mother got caught lying to prevent her daughter from receiving the death penalty and her father’s emotional meltdown on the stand many said was quite powerful for the prosecution’s case.

If Susannah Bortner wants her son’s stuffed animal returned, she’s going to have to make sure the kidnappers who took it are stuffed themselves.

The Brooklyn, New York woman’s two-year-old son lost his teddy bear wrapped in a blanket last month only to have the alleged kidnapper promise to return it in exchange for $10,000 worth of cupcakes. And not just any kind of cupcakes — gluten-free ones.

I Have A Confession To Make

I, Craig Russell, from the Afternoon Hustle, have something I need to talk about with you, the WFGR Listener family. I’d like to take this time to clear up some of the questions that have been raised over the past 10 days or so, and take full responsibility for my actions. At the outset, I’d like to make it clear that I have made terrible mistakes that have hurt the people I care about the most, and I’m deeply sorry.
