ORLANDO (CBS4) – What was once a key piece of evidence in the case against Casey Anthony has been destroyed. Casey’s white Pontiac Sunfire has been crushed for scrap metal according to WOFL in Orlando.
George Anthony, Casey’s father, brought his daughter’s car to a junk yard and turned the title over on Thursday before it was crushed.
Prosecutors claimed there was evidence of human decomposition found in the trunk of the car. Attorneys for Casey Anthony disputed that claim.
Casey Anthony was acquitted last month of a murder charge in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. She was released from jail soon after.
