In a press conference this afternoon, Orange County Chief Medical Examiner Jan Garavaglia announced the results of DNA analysis performed at the FBI Lab in Quantico, Virginia. The remains found just a short distance from the Anthony home are indeed those of Caylee Marie Anthony.
Dr. Garavaglia announced that the remains were completely skelatonized with no soft tissue remaining. There was no ante-mortem damage to the bones and toxicology results are pending. The manner of death is homicide by undetermined means.
She also stated that this case should be judged in a court of law.
Although it had been assumed since their discovery that these were Caylee's remains, hearing the official pronouncement is painful for those who have followed the case since she was first reported missing in July.
A precious little girl is dead and her mother Casey is standing trial for her murder.
Caylee remains in all our hearts. Let us now look forward to justice for Caylee Marie Anthony.
