ABC News’s much-flapped-about interview with Casey Anthony juror Jennifer Ford aired last night on “Primetime” — and it’s only going to fuel verdict fury.
That’s because Ford — who appeared even-keeled and intelligent — answered Terry Moran‘s questions in a way that supports the overprosecution theory on the verdict.
The number-one complaint from those analysing the outcome has been that the prosecution overreached, throwing out claims they couldn’t support.
For instance, Ford said, she felt the team didn’t back up their accusations on chloroform being used on Caylee Anthony.
But she also didn’t buy the defence’s red-herring talk of sexual abuse within the Anthony family.
What it came down to, Ford reiterated again and again, was that all signs pointed to Casey being involved in Caylee’s death — but that no one managed to string the signs together.
“How can you punish someone if you don’t know what they did?” Ford said. “Do I think she’s completely innocent? I have no idea… not guilty doesn’t mean innocent.”
And having the death penalty on the table infinitely upped the ante.
“If I’m wrong, and I kill someone else, I can’t live with that,” Ford said. “If they [the prosecution] want me to kill someone else, they have to prove it.”
