A software designer who testified at the Casey Anthony said evidence presented at the trial that she searched the word “chloroform” 84 times before her daughter disappeared and was later found dead was wrong.
The New York Times reports that John Bradley notified prosecutors of the error and offered to fly to Florida to correct the record. But the corrected evidence, based on a new analysis he conducted, was never presented to the jury.
The Times quotes Bradley as saying Anthony actually only Google searched chloroform once. The 84 searches figure was mentioned numerous times to the jury. Anthony, who was later acquitted, could have been sentenced to death if she had been convicted.
