Casey Anthony's car crushed for scrap metal

The white Pontiac Sunfire that Florida prosecutors used as evidence in the case against Casey Anthony has been destroyed.

WOFL-TV in Orlando ( http://bit.ly/pweuAS) reports that George Anthony took his daughter's car to a junk yard and turned the title over Thursday. The vehicle was crushed for scrap metal.

Prosecutors claimed there was evidence of human decomposition found in the trunk of the car. Attorneys for Casey Anthony disputed that claim.

Casey Anthony was acquitted last month of murder in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in a case that drew nationwide outrage. She was released from jail soon after.
