Casey Anthony's attorney Jose Baez is set to publish a tell-all book in which he allegedly reveals that when he first looked into Anthony's car he thought the strong smell was that of a "dead body."

Casey Anthony and her lawyer Jose Baez are driven away from the Orange County Jail in Orlando, Florida July 17, 2011. Anthony was released from a Florida jail on Sunday to resume the life interrupted three years ago when she was charged with the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. Anthony was acquitted by a jury on July 5 of culpability in Caylee's death.

Anthony was acquitted of the murder of her two year old daughter Caylee Anthony in 2011, but prosecutors have continuously argued that they believe Caylee's body was hidden in the trunk of Anthony's car.

During the trial the prosecution even presented a number of witnesses who testified they believed there to be a smell of decomposition in the trunk of Anthony's Pontiac Sunfire. However, the new revelation that even Anthony's own attorney Jose Baez thought that same thing when he first saw the car, will reignite the thousands who believe Anthony got away with murder – literally.

Jose Baez is set to release a book called "Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story," and in it he will give a blow by blow account of the trial and reveal details that only he could offer.

It has been alleged that through his descriptions he writes, "I could smell something rotten. I had been to a morgue before and my first impression was that this smelled like a dead body. I smelled something else, a chemical-like substance. If you took a good strong whiff, it almost hurt your nostrils. 'Oh my God,' I thought. 'I'm going to have to talk to Casey about taking a plea."

Father, George Anthony, also testified a similar story, saying that when he went to pick up his daughter's car from the impound lot he smelled the strong decomposition smell others had also reported. He said it smelled like "something that you would never forget." As he opened up the car he admits he was praying that he would not find Caylee's body in the truck.

Anthony's own mother Cindy Anthony was the person who called 911 in July 2008 saying, "There's something wrong. I found my daughter's car today and it smells like there's been a dead body in the damn car!"

However, Baez qualifies his revelation by saying he consulted a forensic expert called Henry Lee about the matter, even asking him: "Does this car smell like a human body?"

The forensic expert admitted, "You never know whether it's decomposing garbage or a decomposing body."
