From the foreperson on the jury:

VAN SUSTEREN: So what’s your most likely, which is — which is — apart from — beyond a reasonable doubt is a very different standard than what’s most likely or what you think or what you guess or anything. Where do you fall in the spectrum?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, as far as — again, this is all — this is all speculation. There’s a number of ways that Caylee could have died. You know, there is the possibility, there was the evidence of chloroform, which we can touch on later. There was a pool right there just a — feet away, you know, a couple feet away from the doors that, you know, has had pictures of her being able to open, ladders that she potentially could really have climbed up herself.

And I know that that is a major way that a lot of children die down here in Florida. But we don’t know if that’s the cause or if that was the cause of death. We don’t know the cause of death, and that was one of the major issues that we had and one of the major issues that we had to address. We don’t know the cause of death. Everything was speculation.

(My emphasis.)

Exactly like I said.  The prosecution did not prove a cause of death, and without a cause, you can’t have homicide.
