Anthony Aftermath- Why Viewers Care.
"For me it was kind of interesting to see how that kind of exploded," said Kristin Harris, a media coordinator in Gainesville.
Twitter has been keeping Harris up to date with "Tot-Mom" a story that hits close to home.
"Everything they spoke about was from people you know, right around UCF, that's where I went to school," she said.
But why is everyone else so interested in the story?
"You look at a picture of Caylee and you think, oh my gosh, she looks just like the little girl my son goes to daycare with," said Kim Walsh-Childers, a journalism professor at UF.
She says the public can relate to the Anthony's.
"Casey Anthony was like a lot of the audience-she's white, so she's a member of the majority population, she comes from a relatively middle class family."
Florida's open sunshine laws made extensive media coverage possible.
"One of things that made this such a big story was that it was available," said Walsh-Childers.
Sentencing is set for Thursday morning. the max Anthony could serve for four counts of lying to an officer is four years, minus the 2 1/2 years she's already served.
