Diane Fanning Appearing on InSession as Commentator on the Casey Anthony Trial

True Crime Author, Diane Fanning, who wrote the definitive book on Caylee Anthony, “Mommy’s Little Girl,” (St. Martins) has been invited to comment on the upcoming trial of Caylee’s mother, Casey Anthony, on Friday, May 6 at 10am.

Casey Anthony faces a capital murder charge for the death in July 2008 of her 2 year old daughter, Caylee, who was missing for five months before being found dead near the home of Casey’s parents, George and Cindy Anthony.

Fanning’s book, released in November, 2009, takes tons of raw data, along with extensive interviews, and weaves the story of little Caylee Anthony and her tragic death into a tightly knit presentation.  Anyone who is following the upcoming trial and needs background information, should have a copy of “Mommy’s Little Girl.”

Jury selection in the trial is expected to begin on May 9, 2011, amidst the backdrop of media that will be flocking to the Orlando courtroom, much like the days of OJ Simpson’s trial.

IN SESSION (previously Court TV) is the only television network to serve as a window into the American justice system. Programming consists of live coverage of criminal and civil trials from around the country, as well as expert analysis from the network’s award-winning legal journalists. The network has covered more than 950 trials since its inception and is considered the leading media outlet for trial coverage by many in and out of the courtroom.

    I am hoping that if Diane writes a second book, she will be able to comment more on the Anthony family dynamics. What turns parents into enablers of their children’s deviant behavior?Is it because when parents never say “NO”, children exercise the control to manipulate parents who over time fear to discipline the bad behavior of their children? Why do parents ignore or excuse misconduct when children who..lie, steal..even murder… need to take responsbility for their actions? Was there no attempt to teach Casey values of respect and responsibility during the early years of her childhood? Was she born bad or did she simply always have the freedom and liberty to develop into a killer?

    I have always wondered why Diane chose such an odd title for the book. I could have thought of mnay others that would have fit perfectly.

    For anyone following the case, there was nothing new in the book, but it was still a good read nevertheless.
