In the almost nine years that I’ve been writing about crime, I’ve read about some stupid lawyers that have made some pretty ridiculous claims. However, I think Casey Anthony’s attorney, Jose Baez, may just take the cake in that category.
Baez has filed a motion seeking more information for an alleged ex-boyfriend of Anthony, one Ricardo Morales. The reason that Baez wants information on Morales is that Morales had a picture on his MySpace that said: “win her over with chloroform.” A Google Image Search for the picture turns it up on various websites.
It’s more than likely not a picture that Mr. Morales made himself. It’s one of those pictures that’s spread around the internet that people post on their MySpaces or blogs because they find it humorous in a dark way.
This is nothing more than Baez grasping at straws trying to find anything that would deflect guilt away from his client. It’s not working.
