Casey Anthony's prosecutor, Jeff Ashton, has retired since the infamous trial of the young woman who everyone believed killed her daughter. After the verdict, he announced his retirement and took some time to write his thoughts in a book. The book is meant to show his perspective of the trial and reveal information that wasn't made public at the time the case went to trial.
In a new interview, the prosecutor shares three pieces of information that the jury didn't know during the trial. These facts could indeed have changed the outcome of the trial, so he wants people to know what he knew as he sat across from Casey Anthony and her defense team. First, Ashton reveals that the actual story as told by Casey about the death of Caylee matched the prosecution's view that Caylee didn't die by accident, as theorized by the defense. In addition, psychological tests indicated that Casey was 'normal' and didn't show signs of sexual abuse.
Lastly, Ashton believes that the true relationship between Casey and her mother, Cindy, was different than what the public saw. Jeff believes that "Cindy Anthony was so in denial that she couldn't be honest about her daughter."
So what would Ashton have done if Casey was put on the stand? Well, he would have grilled her on every single lie she told, which would have ruined her 'accidental death' story pretty quickly. Some of the most interesting questions he would have asked include why she put duct tape on Caylee's face and what Casey Anthony's tattoo meant to her. "It would have been a helluva show," he shared in the interview.
It seems that he is accepting the verdict and believes the system works, despite losing. He believes he knows what happened and that is enough for him.
