‘Juror Number 3’ On Nightline: I Have ‘No Idea’ If Casey Anthony Killed Caylee

In an interview certain to fuel another day’s debate over the not guilty verdict that stunned people watching the Casey Anthony murder trial, ABC’s Terry Moran talked to Jennifer Ford, previously known to reporters covering the Anthony trial as “juror number three.” In the interview, which aired last night on Nightline, Ford was firm that after three weeks of trial testimony, she was left with “no idea” if Casey Anthony killed her daughter, and believes she had no choice but to acquit Anthony on all felony counts in the case. “I did not say she was innocent. I just said there was not enough evidence.”

Questioned by Moran about the defense claim that Caylee Anthony died accidentally in the family swimming pool, Ford said that theory was easier for her to understand than the prosecutors’ case. “If there was a dead child in that trunk, does that prove how she died? No idea, still no idea.” Ford told Moran. “If you’re going to charge someone with murder, don’t you have to know how they killed someone or why they might have killed someone, or have something where, when, why, how? Those are important questions. They were not answered.”
