I have two major problems with the book: (1) Baez uses it as an opportunity to bash Jeff Ashton relentlessly, and arrogantly. He resents Ashton's behavior and characterizations of him, rightly so, and yet stoops to the same level. Baez states that he is a classy, talented lawyer, and yet dives right down into the worst behaviors himself. This made it difficult to read the book for content. (2) The book left many unanswered questions for me:
(a) the alleged sexual abuse. This was never proven, and never corroborated by anyone. Casey told several people that she had been groped by her adolescent brother, but never alleged any abuse by her father, when she had every opportunity and motive to do so, had it been true. In fact, in her jailhouse letter to Robin Adams, she says that she DOESN'T remember her father abusing her, only her brother, which consisted of touching her breasts. Baez, however, states that she told people of "the abuse", but he never says that she only mentioned her brother. Misleading at best, and amounts to falsehood about the abuse statements.
(b) the duct tape attached to the hair mat. I was not present at the trial and did not see the pictures, but in the coroner's report, it is stated that duct tape was attached to the hair mat, and had held the mandible attached to the skull.Read more ›
In 2008: Baez preached "Caylee is alive, she is out there and we need to find her. The police are concentrating on the wrong things."
Now: The cops should have immediately realized Casey Anthony was not playing with a full deck and done...what? Stopped questioning her about her missing child? Sent her to one of the mental health experts who DID IN FACT EXAMINE HER and found her perfectly fit to stand trial? He shows absolutely no regard for human life and ignores the rights of Caylee Marie Anthony. Caylee had the right to live and the right to be buried respectfully as a human being and not left in the woods to be chewed up by animals. He also ignores her right to be found during an investigation that her OWN MOTHER obstructed for her own selfish reasons.
I take issue with Baez thinking his personal opinion of Casey's mental health overrides those of the numerous experts who examined Casey Anthony before and even DURING the trial to ascertain her mental health. Baez is as crappy of a psychiatrist as he is a lawyer. What he should have included in his book would be what that mental health analysis taken during the trial indicates.
In 2008 Baez was moseying around with a birthday card Jesse Grund sent Caylee, showing it to anyone and everyone who walks by and commenting on how creepy it is. Much LIKE CASEY ANTHONY HERSELF, He completely ignores George as any sort of person of interest at this point.Read more ›
