Widespread Support For A ‘Caylee’s Law’

ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 5 (UPI) — Florida voters would overwhelmingly support a proposed “Caylee’s Law” that would make it a felony not to report a dead or missing child, a poll indicates.

Following the Casey Anthony murder trial, a survey by Quinnipiac University of 1,417 Florida voters found 83 percent supported proposed legislation that would make such a failure to report a criminal offense, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.

Casey Anthony, cleared by a jury of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, waited a month before telling her parents or police the child was missing.

State Reps. Scott Plakon, R-Longwood, and Jose Diaz, R-Miami, have filed a proposal making it a felony not to report a dead or missing child within 48 hours, and a number of other lawmakers have pledged to support similar proposals.

The Quinnipiac survey was conducted July 27 to Aug. 2 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
