ORLANDO, Fla. -- Casey Anthony's defense attorneys said Friday that it was "outrageous and cruel" for officials to videotape their client's reaction to news that a child's body was found near her home.
"Let's face it, there is nothing 'normal' about anyone's reaction to losing a child," Anthony's defense attorneys said in a statement. "Everyone handles personal tragedy in an individual way."
The reaction comes a day after WESH 2 News reported that investigators brought Casey Anthony to an Orange County Jail nurse's station in December and seated where she could see breaking news coverage on TV about the child's remains. A video camera documented her reaction, a source said.
Anthony doubled over twice and appeared to hyperventilate, according to the source who has seen the tape.
