(The Casey Anthony Trial)
- Summarize the details of the case.
- Explain what evidence was found and how that evidence was collected, examined (processed), and assessed by experts. Include information about why the forensic evidence was important in the case and what current trends in forensics were used when collecting and examining the evidence.
- Provide your analysis of the case and what could have been done differently regardless of the outcome (guilty, acquitted, or found innocent).
You should use at least two resources to develop this case study assignment, one of which can be your textbook. Your case study must be at least three pages in length.
