I don't know any details but I did see on TV the big CSI van from the sheriff's dept in front of the house. They stayed about 10 minutes and left. They took some bags in the house and came back out and would not talk to reporters, of course.

(WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) -- Crime scene investigators from the Orange County Sheriff’s office went to the home of George and Cindy Anthony this morning.
Two investigators pulled up to the home and a short time later another car with two other investigators and George Anthony arrived at the home. George unlocked the door and let them in the home. Crime scene investigators then left the home with two large bags.

George and Cindy Anthony left the home around 9:00 a.m. and went to the sheriff's office.


On Thursday the grandmother of missing two year old Caylee Anthony said she’s beginning to put the pieces of the puzzle together and that ‘It’s making sense’.

Cindy Anthony along with her husband and son met with investigators with the FBI for more than six hours Wednesday.

Oh, this is an interesting development! I will be anxious to watch this thread to see what they removed. Obviously, if they were there such a very short time...they knew specifically what they were after.

Thanks for posting this thread!! I hope everyone will take advantage to post any findings on the subject here!

Fox reported.....possibly bags of garbage / looking for blood / tissue / bones etc. Thats Fox for you.

Actually I am shocked at how well Fox is covering this story. They add the drama too, but they are pretty much right on top of things

Here is a link to one of our local stations and the article about CSI going into the Anthony home and removing two bags of something.

I just only wish one of these bads holds the key to Caylee's dissapearance.
Lets all pray that is what is happening..

"Crime scene investigators took items from the shed and then left the home with two large brown bags."

2 large gas cans, perhaps?

Possibly the FBI asked George exactly what was removed from the trunk or car prior to CSI taking possession of it. Remember, he did admit that it had been cleaned out after they picked it up from the tow yard. On the other hand, it would seem that local LE would have already taken this material into possession and perhaps something new has been discovered/requested.

Marina,

I did not read or hear that. The car was "cleaned out"??? prior to LE seizing it?

they are giving the case the most attention for sure, unfortunately they dont seem to care about being very accurate, and virtually everyone they have commenting on the case has an enormous obvious bias.

anyway, latest report on FOX was that they removed 4 evidence bags, 2 were less than half full and not difficult to carry in one hand. the others were possibly larger and more full but also did not seem cumbersome to carry.

the second 2 bags arrived in an unmarked police car containing george anthony and an officer, they went into the house and then the back yard, were there for less than ten minutes, and then they both left in the same car they arrived in.

nobody saw what they took or was told what they were looking for, so anything regarding that is complete speculation right now.

i would certainly hope they already have the gas cans and have dusted them for prints. but who knows, could be.

it could be casey's belongings that she had with her while she was living away from the house. i would also have thought they would already have those things but all reports from cindy, and from casey's phone calls, seemed to indicate that those things were still at the house.

Well, I know that I have seen bags of garbage out on the curb for pick up at least one time in front of that home. If it is garbage why didn't they dispose of it before? I am thinking it was more like personal stuff belonging to Casey. I also read the Orlando Sentinel article a minute ago which reported they took "something" out of the shed.
I hope we find something out soon! I do think whatever it is it's important to solving the case.

Maybe clothes that Casey used to carry Caylee for burial, etc.??

Taking this over from the general discussion thread. Tracy1 surmised that a car seat was in one of the bags. Sure looks like it to me, too.

What I question, though, is this:

where was the car seat?
why was it not in the car that LE confiscated?

Local six is reporting it is probably clothes of Casey they took.



Two bags of evidence likely containing clothes and personal items of the mother of a missing Orlando girl were taken Friday morning by crime-scene investigators from the home of the child's grandparents, sources told Local 6 News

As someone pointed out in the discussion thread, one bag looks like a car seat.

oops sorry eliza beat me to it. But she posted a great question..........where was the car seat?

I think they took some part of the ground where the dog alerted so they can compare it to what the dog alerted to in the trunk. Maybe they have some results back.

My guess would be they were looking for clothing.... maybe a notebook or calendar/diary?

Maybe also stuffed animals or favorite belongings that Caylee was very attached to.... that seems like the type of thing a mother would bring along for her child if she's moving out.

If she left with something special & that something turned up back at the house or in the car.... uh oh.

On one of the phone calls Casey asked Lee if he had checked through the bags and purses at the house, my guess is that those items that she left there were retrieved and probably also the soil sample for comparison. I am hoping the forensics came in last night or this morning so they know what needs additional testing. Hopefully more info will be available soon but with the recent activity there must be some break or new info in the case. Hopefully that's not wishful thinking on my part!!

QuickAttack

Might be a stroller, or something else she used to carry/push the body to dump it?

I hate thinking so morbidly, but that's my guess.

FNC on the ground reporters saying it was definitely dirt taken from the yard today. They dug down but not looking for anything and took dirt.

I don't like this.....

why on earth didn't they take sufficient dirt samples when they first searched the yard???

Unless they need a whole lot more so they can send it off to various labs for multiple testing & backup results?

TravelingBug
08-01-2008, 02:29 PM
I'm guessing maybe they either dug a different spot or down deeper? Maybe they found additional evidence somewhere else and are now showing that that was NOT in the yard, so they needed more dirt or dirt from elsewhere if the initial dirt was taken to match with the shovel and the car samples? I don't know obviously, just trying to think of possibilities.

It's possible the grandparents took the car seat out of the car before LE took the car. I think they took the car on the 17th of July, but don't hold me to that date!

I posted this in 'general discussion,' but it's probably better for it to be here ...

Perhaps the larger evidence bag held a ladder for the deep end of a pool.

It really didn't look long enough to be a ladder.



I still find the timing VERY curious....

CSI shows up the day after the FBI sat down with the Anthonys.... only stay for 5 short minutes.

I can't help but wonder if this is all a ploy they came up with to shake up Casey & see if THAT gets her to see that her parents are cooperating with her 'enemy' & maybe not believing her anymore.

I was just thinking that ladders at the deep end sometimes have only two or three steps, and a curved portion on the top. Just a theory.

Addl, Clothes, shoes, personal items. Someone also mentioned small luggage, car seat for evidence matches/What's CSI? No ploy involved. ALL they do is related directly to the missing case.

CSI = Crime Scene Investigation.... working with police & FBI.

I know I'm only speculating BUT if the FBI has determined that it is impossible to move forward in this case... they might have sat everyone down & agreed upon a Plan B

1) Make Casey feel like she is becoming more & more alienated from everyone

2) Announce that the parents met with FBI for 6 hours!

3) Make Casey think LE is getting very close AND that her family is cooperating... even letting CSI police take MORE evidence from the house after all this time.

I think the bag some are saying could be a carseat is in fact, the bag with the dirt in it. Dirt is heavy, and depending on the amount inside, will cause the bag to sag... just like it is. The "shape" the bag seems to be in is simply the stiffnes of the upper portion of the bag.

My daughter has the same Eddie Bauer carseat that Caylee is photographed in, and let me tell you, it would NOT fit in that bag. It's huge.

I'm wondering if Casey had placed something in the shed that was related to what happened to Caylee. She could have came back to retreive whatever it was, and made it look like the shed had been broken into. Casey may not have really needed the gas, but wanted it to look like a break in.

Didn't LE state the carseat was in the car and showed nothing?? This would have come out around the time the car was being checked out. I remember thinking it was odd the seat was still there and wasn't put in Amy's car when Casey borrowed it... But, regardless, they may have used more than one carseat...

ok -- here's the media link about the carseat
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/community/news/conway/orl-caylee2008jul20,0,2486087.story

and the specific blip:

"Details on what kind of clues the car holds were not available, but Padilla said a child's car seat was found in the Pontiac."

I'm not sure right now if it was ever said the seat was ok / nothing showed on it, though.

One of the bags does look like it has a small piece of luggage or a backpack inside.

I have 3 carseats for my son and now 2 booster seats as well. I'm sure they had more than one carseat for Caylee, one of Mom's car and one for G Mom's.

Bags removed by crime-scene investigators from the home of the grandparents of a missing Orlando girl contained gasoline cans that will apparently be fingerprinted, WKMG-TV reported.
...The gas cans -- once believed to have been inside the trunk of a car owned by Caylee's mother -- have already been scrutinized by forensic technicians.

If the bags removed did contain gasoline cans that were in her car when George picked it up from the tow yard, wouldn't that mean: 1) George instantly would know that it was Casey that broke into the shed? (Later, he claimed it was "solved" by neighborhood kid.) 2) George knowingly removed those and put them back into the shed himself without calling LE or informing them of their "return" after filing a police report on the burglary? 3) George tampered with evidence in the trunk of the car?

passin_through
08-02-2008, 11:32 AM
I don't think I recall George saying it was "solved by a neighborhood kid'. He never said who...just somebody. On removing the cans, yeppers seems like tampering to me, but they had the car before they had Casey or realized Caylee was truly misssing.

Somebody asked why when the car was found and the Cindy and George saw the purse etc, why they didn't report this to police, esp if such an odor were coming from the car. That' was a good question!

Did the car really not smell as bad as reported or was Cindy talking to Casey as she said she was...therefore she knew Casey was ok and thought Casey was only being a turd and staying away and keeping their grandbaby from them? *shrug*

Can't make heads or tails in this case much at all.

I'm wondering if some of the items taken were Caylee's clothes to get search dogs started on tracking her down using her scent...
