And its hardly CSI level investigation. They can trace an IP address with a GUI written in visual basic. These guys didnt even think to check Firefox or get records from their ISP. They just checked the easily deleted ie history....

Man, if they didn't rush into the trial; they could have discovered this and she still would have gotten acquitted. At best; it proves someone looked it up on her computer, not who.

As a mostly technically ignorant individual, would using a VPN help cover one's tracks or is everything saved on your computer?

Not that I'm doing or planning to do anything illegal.

Total incompetence by the prosecution team. And they should have filed a secondary charge of child endangerment. No way she would have beat that and at least served a few more months.

It would prevent your ISP from knowing what you're doing, but your browser history would remain (unless you securely delete it) as well as any logs on the sites you visit.

This is what you get when your cybercime "expert" is a cop who can run a file undeletion utility in Windows. In this case, the suspect was dumb as dirt and that didn't even help the investigators.

I truly believe she killed that kid, because she's a party girl whore who saw being a mother as getting in the way of being a party girl whore. Of course, my gut feelings don't equate to a guilty verdict, so the jury's opinion stands......but I don't have to like it.

:( I winced at that.

The prosecution team was obviously completely incompetent here. That doesn't mean this evidence would have convinced the jury though, nor does it mean there was enough evidence to convict anyway. I don't suppose there are other people out there who have considered that she just plain didn't do it, but is still just ultra-crazy?

The investigation in this case involved browsing history on the computer drive. A VPN wouldn't help. A VPN would help if they asked Google for search history for 192.168.1.1 and you were secretly using 10.1.2.3. If you were logged into Google while searching, as many people are, a VPN or other tunnel would do you no googd.

I use two laptops, a tablet, and gave a neighbor wifi access. On a netbook that used to be mine.

If you accessed my internet history you'd have to piece together the histories from at least seven different web browsers. It's not unusual for me to use Chrome and Firefox at the same time.

Then all you'd have would be Fark, Fark links, hundreds of some seller side Amazon pages, randomized links to wikipedia and an unhealthy amount of hentai. By the time an investigator got anywhere all they'd know is I'm a bit warped, but they'd be hard pressed to prove anything.

There are numerous ways to leave no trail on the computer itself or with your ISP, or at least ways in which it makes it too expensive, time-consuming or beyond the technical expertise of most local police. But it's a bother and you only need to mess up once to leave enough evidence.

The easy way is to use a run-from-CD Linux distro or a Bart's PE CD that has TOR software installed; that setup saves nothing to a disk drive (you don't even need one in the computer) and makes it difficlt to track your Google searches and Internet activity. You can find .iso images of these on-line and burn your own copy as well as find some great cryptograhy software.

Nohing illegal in any of that, but besides being slow and a PITA, it also looks suspicious and investigators will likely work overtime finding other evidence of your crime since they would now be convinced of your guilt. They may not be the smartest, but they're not stupid and can be bulldog persistent, which usually pays off for them, especially when you make that inevitable mistake.

I pay a membership to a VPN, and they tell you as long as you're not doing anything illegal you're all set. And I think they don't keep month's worth of logs but they do warn you that if law enforcement comes to them with a subpoena for info on you, that they will turn over all info. I use a VPN if I'm on a public wi-fi and I'm checking email, bank accounts, stuff like that.

And that kid might have been safe if Casey had used Opera, since Opera seems to fark up properly formatted pages. I think Opera is a worse browser than Firefox.

History is such a wonderful subject. See how you all forgot it was the asshat Prosecutor who decided it was the death penalty or nothing for murder one, assuming he would get his 15 minutes of fame. Well he did get his 15 minutes of fame after all, for not realizing the basics of a reasonable doubt defense would undermine his watertight case and oh by the way, don't ever count on a Florida jury. Jeff Ashton is his name and he single handedly gave Jose Baez and his client a free ride on any number of murder/manslaughter charges that the jury would have bought into.

/Save your hate, haters, the Prosecutors shot at fame cost Caylee Anthony her justice. not some dickwad IT Geek being a dickwad IT Geek.

Thankfully, the law is not based on gut feelings and prejudices about "party girl whores".

She may have killed her child, but the case, as it was presented in a court of law, failed to convince a jury of her peers that she was guilty beyond reasonable doubt.

Casey Anthony got off because Nancy Grace made it a national media mess by blabbing about it daily on her herp derp show.

If Nancy Grace hadn't taken up her cause than Casey wouldn't have gotten a good lawyer and would have probably been convicted.
