She keeps looking over at the defense table instead of looking at the jury or at any notes she may have. I really don't trust that.

I am sort of in favor of due process and in that courtroom as it stands right now, there are no convicted child killers. In my mind, or in your mind, she may be a child killer, but this is her trial, and she is entitled to a defense.

Look, I think ICA is as guilty as the next person here, but I am trying to watch this more from a legal perspective and judicial system perspective. I realize everyone is not watching it with that lens.

BTW, I believe JA is now doing a bang up job on his cross. I should have more confidence!

Post of the day IMO.

Dr. B said earlier there were no Camphor trees at the site (obviously some substance relating to camphor was obviously found in her car). Camphor trees are VERY invasive, throw off hundreds of seeds and I can't believe that somewhere close there isn't at least ONE camphor tree with leaves that blew into that area during one of the many storms that hit FL each year.

So many semantics in this case, it drives me crazy.

JA's question can be construed to mean an exact date. Dr. Bock is giving an estimate based on the date the recovery took place.

Dr. Bock's opinion is that she is giving an opinion based on a general range, JA wants her to testify that she won't give a specific date.

06-21-2011, 10:25 AM
JA w/Dr Bock -

agree with left side of photo has considerable more amount of leaf litter than right side @ that time....people trampling around, wind action, animals, and the nature of the trees themselves - just as root growth and leaf fall depends upon the type of plant it was....evergreens constantly shed a few leaves at a time....other plants just drop leaves in the fall....important to compare same spot to same spot - where was the skull? to the best of her understanding - she was told by someone who was not actually there @ site....Mr McKenna visited the scene with others the week before with LKB and other forensic people were there with him so she suspects they were correct....she points out an area she was shown....

Dr Bock not prepared to render any opinion when Caylee's body was left @ the scene...she thought she had rendered one.....not prepared to render opinion as to when the body was placed....NO! I did render an opinion when remains were left there - a couple of weeks before...

during depo in ....render an opinion in this case ......she answered NO.....if she said it she meant it however it was tendered.....allows her to read the context of her depo.....


she reads..they were discussing Greely Colorado @ the time...she knows why she said that....answered No in February but yes today....she doesn't know exactly when it was placed there but best guess was given today....a minimum of 2 weeks not a maximum of 2 weeks...not opinion body had been there 2 weeks only - It's possible , but longer than two weeks? Yes

OK, JA finally got her to say what she actually meant the entire time. Don't these witnesses realize they lose their credibility when they dig their heels in and refuse to state the obvious? I don't know about the jury but it is just frustrating to watch that and it makes the witness look like a complete sellout to the DT.

Sneaking in this morning...

Even trying to remain objective, I am amazed every day at what a fantastic attorney Jeff Ashton is. I know HHJP has gotten on to him a time or two for raising his voice, and being a bit snarky (tee hee) but he really is fantastic, especially on cross. He is handling this witness a bit more gently than Dr. Spitz, I assume because he knows that it would not look good to a jury to upset her. He seems to have a way of making people say/admit things that they really don't want to admit on the stand. It's like he gently guides them into a corner. Haha.

really interesting to watch:)

Unless that area on Suburban Drive is cleared all the time, the crime scene area is still pretty barren 3 years later. I can`t imagine the vegetation only took 2 weeks to grow and accumulate over the skull in 2008. It`s not as if Fay cleared the area of vegetation with water action, the area dried out and then was repopulated with vegetation after the skull was placed. Jeez, this is ludicrous and beyond logic.

Witness just said NO when asked if roots can grow through a hole or break in bone. Then she changed her answer to YES when Sims asked the question again and she realized her answer was supposed to be yes. Quite simple - bought and paid for!

Is that why they call it re-direct? :floorlaugh:

Good Morning! I've been reading here since August of 2008, but only just recently made an actual account.

My opinion of Casey not being able to look at the skull photos of little Caylee has more to do with her not being able to face her dirty work....not because she is a grieving mother.

TY! ITA!
She's never been made to face any consequences and I think this is the FIRST time she has ever been made accountable for her actions and its killing her.

That SKULL is talking back to her.

She taped that poor babies face to shut her up, and now look how much Caylee has to say! She can't bare to hear it!

IMHO, the ONLY reason the DT has even put most of their "Experts" on the stand is so they can say "we put on a defense". These "Experts"have done nothing to bolster their case. CM was right, they "did not have to put on a defense", and they should not have.

If Dr. Bock believes that roots could grow into that laundry bag and up through those bones in only two weeks.... I cannot give her testimony any credit at all. Anyone who gardens knows that plants just do not grow that fast. You don't have to be a botanist to know that it takes time for plants and plant roots to grow. :doh:

This past school year my kindergardener's planted beans...it took over two weeks for them to begin to break the soil.

Totally Agree! with one exception:
If you live in Southern California and ten years ago you purchased a little 4" pot of Tiny-Leaf Ivy (Duck Ivy) with the intention of making a small topiary but never got around to it, then come back two weeks later to find the little ivy roots grew through the bottom of the plastic pot and embedded themselves quite securely in the raised garden where I had placed
the 4" plastic pot for safe keeping. <----yes, I know...run-on sentence Big Time! LOL

I ended up putting the ivy in a small pot.
Here it is 10 years later and every couple weeks I have to yank a kitchen trash bag full of tiny ivy leaves AND Roots from the area. It all started with that little 4" pot.

In other words.....if that wooded area was packed with ivy, I'd agree.....fast FAST growing quap and would have covered much in a two-week period.
But from learning about the vegetation that is in those wooded areas in Florida.....don't think so. Not in two weeks.

Okay 3 times she has given different answers about the time she taught.. first she said 30 to 40 years, then she said 30, now she just said 31

Well, I guess if you really want to stretch it, 31 years IS in between 30 -40.

And my point is that it's all in the specific wording, isn't it? These expert witnesses are also experts in doing this type of thing. Twist, twist, twist. IMO

DIRECT EXAMINATION OF DR. BOCK BY DS - continued

She can not tell how old the roots are by looking at the roots in photos because she does not know what plants the roots came from - growth rates - mineral nature of the soil, water, other plant roots in the area - environmental factors.

Determining root growth rate - must know what type plant and time-space observations done with a ruler, notebook and camera or you would do it in a lab.

No further questions.

CROSS EXAMINATION BY JA

She is from Colorado. Florida was the site of her PhD and has had individual research projects in Florida. Got her PhD in 1966 from UC Berkley. PhD work was looking at the distribution of water hyacinths up and down the state. She also studied the food habits of the tortoise in Florida from 1980 to 1990. She was also friends of Robert Long who wrote the first book on flora in Florida. She has used field guides to become familiar with thousands of plants in Florida in general, not for this case.

She visited recovery area and reviewed a large number of photos from pristine form to excavation. This botanical area has been characterized as a swamp/hardwood - but that is an interesting term. Part of the plants are upland plants that are not wet all the time.

Opinion that body could have been there as little as 2 weeks is based on looking at all of the material in this case. Photos of roots growing through hair mass - roots could have accumulated in as little as two weeks. They also could have grown there in as little as two weeks. Roots growing through laundry bag - this could also have occurred in only 2 weeks in December. Roots growing into bones - she saw photos and actual bones - this growth is suspected to have been able to have grown in 2 weeks, but she is not an expert on bones.

She has seen root growth in skeletons. Regarding her 2011 depo - she answered that she had not had experience with root growth in skeletons. She now says - not in teaching. However, she belongs to an organization and was present at a crime scene where she observed a 10 year old skeleton where she saw roots. She did not think about this when the question was asked in her depo.

Her experience in root growth in bones is limited.

In the photo of the skull (Exhibit S-211) (ICA looking away) - leaf litter or possibly hummus collected to the height of the nose area. This could accumulate in two weeks.

(Exhibit S-213) (ICA still looking away) photo of skull returned to ME with the leaf litter around it collected with it. She agreed the leaves are in varying degrees of decomp - some green, some yellow, some brown and some completely grey. This is a reflection of when the leaves fell from trees.

She doesn't understand exactly how this collection was made. JA told her that the ME put his hands approx 6 inches on either side of the skull, reached into the ground at dirt level and tried to lift the entire leaf litter around the skull.

Given the hypothesis....

(OBJECTION BY DS - overruled)

that this had laid there undesturbed, then yes this would have been there longer than 2 weeks.

Her opinion is based on the fact that the litter that was displayed in the 2/09 picture was accumulated on ground that was scraped bare by the 15th of December. (D-29)

She is familiar with leaf fall rates for trees indigenous to Florida.

In D-29 the amount of leaf litter could have been the same as that shown in the photo. She did not measure the leaf litter in any area.

(ICA continues to look down and shake her head)

Why no leaf fall on right side of photo?

OBJECTION BY DS - OVERRULED

Why is that? Several possibilities - people trampling around. This was a frequently visited spot after the recovery. Another is wind action, animals is another and the nature of the trees themselves. Leaf fall rates depend on the kind of tree. This flora is semi-tropic and some plants are evergreen and maintain leaves all year long, but still shed leaves. Other plants just drop leaves in the fall.

She indicated where on this photo she was told the skull was found. Mr. McKenna showed her the location. He had visited the scene earlier with LKB and other forensic scientists.

Can you render an opinion as to when the remains were placed? She then said she did render one. It is her opinion that it was a couple of weeks before.

2/12/11 depo - she said "NO" she wasn't able to render an opinion as to how long before the remains were found that they were placed there. She knows why she said that - she doesn't know exactly when it was placed there. The minimum of two weeks is her best guess. That is not the maximum. It is also possible it was a great deal longer than 2 weeks.

No further questions.

REDIRECT EXAMINATION BY DS

The remains are in a semi-tropical area. She has studied plants in semi-tropical areas for 30 years and has taught this for 31+ years.

If a bone fragment has a hole in it, a root cannot grow in the hole. Depending on what kind of root, it can grow into an opening.

She saw the log near the remains. She did not see fallen leaf-litter on that log. That inspired her to look at the log to determine if it had turned over or laid in that position for a long time. JW's summary report indicated it took 2 people to move it so she supposed it was heavy. What information...

OBJECTION BY JA - OVERRULED

She believed indications regarding leaf litter could have indicated many things.

Hummus and leaf litter - she was asked to draw hummus and leaf litter. The top layer of soil is hummus. She drew an example. Then remnants appear on top and through the process of decay they get incorporated into the hummus.

Conditions...

OBJECTION BY JA - SUSTAINED

Photos of remains prior to being removed -

OBJECTION BY JA - question withdrawn

If you place an item on leaf litter and the leaf litter and hummus are very wet, the item can sink.

No further questions.

RE-RE-CROSS EXAMINATION BY JA:

The skull could have sunk. She was not aware that one of the bones had been buried in 4" of muck. This could have been buried by a dog.

Witness excused at 10:35

Recess for Jury to 10:55, attorneys to be back at 10:50.

I've seen 5 minutes and this witness isn't so good. She looked so thrilled to get to use the easel. A dog buried it or possibly a coyote? Yeah, that's a good theory.

Maybe it was RK's dog who buried the bone.

Yeah, that's it.

This witness may or may not be coming accross very well to many of us. However, i respect her for her knowledge, most of which is much more than any of us know.

Now, the reason I'm saying this is because i have rainforest growth on an apartment patio. Everyone aske me how, and why. Now, I am doing notes - no research - there are factors to this that most of you cannot image. Don't laugh unless you've tried to do it.

Ashton steps up again. Asks about skull sinking into ground- Bock says it could have been pushed. #CaseyAnthony -jfell

And that, my friends, is the only reason this witness was on the stand. Her job was to answer the SA's questions with multiple possibilities only to put the seed of doubt in the jurors' minds.

IMO, SMART for Jeff Ashton to end on "a dog buried it."

But...no coyotes in Florida? Umm...really? I thought there were... http://www.stpete.org/wildlife/florida_coyote.asp

I just love the way JA stuttered and did a double take when the witness suggested that the hip bone found in 4 inches of muck was perhaps buried by a dog or a coyote!!!

JA laughs when Dr. says maybe a dog buried the hip bone in 4 inches of muck. She says, "they do, you know."

I truly believe that all of the lawyers on the defense team are in agreement to act like 12th grade criminology students in order to allow Casey a chance at appeal for ineffective counsel. It will amaze me if, after this case is over, that anyone in FL will willingly hire any of these lawyers for their own cases. They are really only ruining their careers with this case....

Dr. Bock: "Or a dog buried it. They do!"

Okay, imo, that remark just finished off her credibility with the jurors.

Sneaking in this morning...

Even trying to remain objective, I am amazed every day at what a fantastic attorney Jeff Ashton is. I know HHJP has gotten on to him a time or two for raising his voice, and being a bit snarky (tee hee) but he really is fantastic, especially on cross. He is handling this witness a bit more gently than Dr. Spitz, I assume because he knows that it would not look good to a jury to upset her. He seems to have a way of making people say/admit things that they really don't want to admit on the stand. It's like he gently guides them into a corner. Haha.

really interesting to watch:)

Not to take away from JA, but these witnesses have nothing to back up their opinions. They get caught fudging and can't get out of it. jmo

She was an embarrassment to the defense. A dog buried the pelvis... JA could hardly contain himself.
