Nancy Grace Lashes Out at Casey Anthony Verdict

Updated

From the very beginning, Nancy Grace made it clear: She felt that Casey Anthony was a baby killer.

Throughout the televised murder trial, Grace mocked, ridiculed and lambasted Anthony – whom she called “Tot Mom” – and drew the ire of the defense team.

And so the HLN network legal commentator reacted with outrage Tuesday after Casey was found not guilty of murder and abuse charges in the 2008 death of 2-year-old daughter Caylee.

“I absolutely cannot believe that Caylee s death has gone unavenged,” she said moments after the reading of the verdicts. “Tot Mom will be walking free.”

A former prosecutor, Grace empathized with the state’s lawyers, saying, “They gave it their all” with “scientific evidence like none every seen in the country before.”

“But, in the end,” Grace said, “Tot Mom s lies seemed to have worked.”

Later, Grace sneered at reports the defense team was celebrating at a local bar.

“As the defense sits by and has their champagne toast after that not guilty verdict, somewhere out there the devil is dancing tonight,” she said.
