    Many avid followers of the trial of Casey Anthony, the Florida woman accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, were incensed by Tuesday's not-guilty verdict. Unlike most others, though, Michelle Crowder did more than just fume about it.
    By dinnertime, Crowder had hopped on the social-change site Change.org and launched a petition, aimed at President Obama and members of Congress, calling for a federal law that would make it a felony for parents to fail to notify police within 24 hours of a child's disappearance or within an hour of a child's death. Casey Anthony waited 30 days before reporting her daughter, Caylee, missing — one of several bizarre behaviors to which many pointed as evidence of Anthony's guilt.
    A jury found Anthony not guilty of murder, but convicted her of lying to police in their investigation of her daughter's death. Casey had initially claimed that Caylee was kidnapped by a nanny, which spurred a nationwide search before the girl's skeletal remains were found in the woods near the Anthony family home six months later.

    This story is so long-standing I had forgotten how it dominated the news years ago. Thanks for the update. What a strange ending it has.

    I have read many pieces of this story. All that the defense had to do was present a different view of case.. that Casey was away when her daughter 'drowned', Casey's father who was dominating and abusive, put away the dead body and asked her to keep quiet. Now the case can never be proved against Casey's father. And Casey goes free, inspite of searching for 'chloroform', evidence of duct tape on corpse and smell of dead in car. Not only this, Casey also took part in a beauty contest after getting over 'drowning' of her child and disposing the body. All she is charged for is 4 counts of lying to authorities!
