As millions of people nationwide continue to express their opinions (mostly outrage) on Casey Anthony being found not guilty of murder yesterday, I'm reminded of an interview I conducted in 2009. I talked to renowned forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs for the May 2009 issue of Charlotte magazine. Kathy, who lives in Charlotte, is, of course, a best-selling author and a producer for the FOX television series Bones, which is based on her books.

A few months prior to our interview, she'd been hired as a forensic expert by Casey Anthony's defense team, and she examined the remains of two-year-old Caylee Anthony. She told me she was expecting to be called to testify once the trial got underway, but I had no idea it would be two years until the trial actually began (I don't think she expected it would take that long either).

And below is a video clip of Kathy appearing on Piers Morgan Tonight last night. I see parallels to what she told me before the trial began and what she says here after.
