A Missing Child

Nearly six months after she disappeared on June 15, police have still found no trace of three-year-old Caylee Anthony. But they do have a suspect: her mother. On Oct. 14, an Orlando, Fla. grand jury indicted Casey Anthony, 22, on murder charges, which could carry the death penalty. The young mother reported her daughter missing July 15, telling police she had left Caylee with a babysitter a month earlier. Anthony was immediately arrested as the authorities set out on a nationwide hunt for the missing toddler. What they found instead were 1,200 pages worth of evidence against her mother. Most damning? Anthony's abandoned car, which lab tests revealed had traces of a decomposing body and chloroform.
