Casey Anthony Found Not Guilty of Murder [Updated]


She was also acquitted of aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter in the case of her daughter’s 2008 death, a verdict that shocked close observers — of whom there were many — of the case. We at Intel had previously largely avoided covering/reading about the trial, but today, People With Big Hair Tell Us This Is a Big Deal. For instance, Julie Chen, who has the sort of supersize flip only achieved through years of practice with hot rollers, targeted backcombing, and hairspray, broke down in tears at the reading of the verdict on The Talk today. (In the courtroom, so did Casey Anthony, somewhat more understandably.) Kim Kardashian, also presumably not a stranger to the hot roller, tweeted her dismay: “WHAT!!!!???!!!! CASEY ANTHONY FOUND NOT GUILTY!!!! I am speechless!!!” And, of course, Nancy Grace, who has driven much of the case’s pitchfork-wielding coverage, might just have the biggest hair of them all. [CNN]
