    They will attack any testimony or witness that is harmful to their client by any means available within their given parameters...and will attempt some no no's too.

    They will pay very close attention to the jurors reactions and make note of them....or ask one of their "experts" to do so for them. They will identify the trigger points that elicit juror reaction.

    They will not give their opening until AFTER the St. of FL has rested their case.

    They will tell a story errr tale that will attempt to elicit such emotion from the jury that they forget (not likely) the mechanics of the case and instead focus on JUST the emotion and heart of it.

    While an ideal result for the DT is acquittal, they will except a reduced charge or LWOP as a victory.

    They will create a story that defies logic and likely has no truth or merit in their attempt to create reasonable doubt. The possible SODDI nominees are not so much the immediate family IMO, but instead, the parties that have gone largely ignored by the DT in the recent past.

    I believe that Kronk, GA, CA, etc....are possibly red herrings that were used to hide others. Do I think that GA is still in front of the bus...yes.....but he is not alone. There is a wild card wrapped in their pocket square (not evidence just a storyline or plot twist).

    My first guess would be a name we haven't heard dragged through their mud.
    I agree with them pulling a wild card suspect out of their arses.

    I have always wondered if they are going to imply that Ricardo was upset because she moved on so fast to Tony.
    And there is that picture of Caylee wearing that same pink tshirt in his bedroom, with a bruise under her eye. And stories of Casey letting caylee sleep between them in bed. Makes me wonder if they are going to try a blind side on the guy during the trial...

    That's always a possibility.....they made a big deal about getting the info from his computer....he is the one that sold that photo to Globe so they might say he KNEW it was the same shirt found with the remains.

    I do note that he wanted that photo cropped so it wouldn't show the mess in the room as he stated that it could be prejudicial. That caught me off guard.

    CA fingered Amy and Ricardo as being into heroin. Ricardo is certainly a possible bus victim.


    ETA... IIRC KC commented via text that she and Ricardo were on the outs, or something to that effect, because of her desire to be just friends. I anticipate that being part of a possible SODDI. Off to look for the reference to JB wanting RM's computer records.

    I bumped the above thread.

    JB filed a motion in January 2009 for ALL the forensic data on Ricardo's computer.

    Did he do the same for the Anthony's computer??

    Off to check.

    ETA...

    The motion was actually filed in early January 2009. I find it interesting that JB was SO anxious to get RM's computer records so early...see screen caps from the clerk website.

    I went back to the LE interview RM gave on July 25th, 2008. In his interview he indicated that KC and Caylee came over on the 9th of June, and that the next morning he saw KC and Caylee on the couch as he left for work. He said that KC told him she was going to take a shower at his place before she left.
    http://flawebhosting.net/docs092308/rm092308.pdf


    So......................my question is this.......while we know that Caylee was seen on Father's Day........BUT KC originally gave the 9th as the date she last saw her daughter.

    Is her little date flub an indication of her intent to actually frame Ricardo fo "something".....accidental or otherwise?

    Is it possible that she and Ricardo had discussed using chloroform for erotic play...that she knew about his "Win her over with" on his myspace, that she had already made some for "sex play", and decided to use it on Caylee as an afterthought?

    Possibilities are swirling right now.

    Thinking now about the drum set photo of Caylee that CA claimed ICA told her was taken in Zanny's apartment - which was later confirmed to be RM's.

    Just reviewed CA's non-stop streamroll of a meeting with FBI back in August 2008, CA goes on and on about this photo and RM - http://www.wftv.com/video/18035442/index.html

    I tried to re-watch that video, but after 2 minutes, just couldn't take it anymore. CA buying into KC's lie-fstyle just makes me sick.

    Regardless of what path the defense takes, it's totally an uphill climb for them. KC was judge and jury with her 31 day delay.

    Wow.....sleuther.......This certainly makes sense and the date fits. Is RM going to turn out to be the Zanny/nanny with his trips to the Tampa area and last seeing Caylee on the 9th?

    If they try and point the blame towards Ricardo, she still has to justify the 31 days. Her obvious excuse will be that she was too afraid of him to report the child missing.

    Problem is, she was on video at a date night hours after the 'kidnapping.' That is problematic for her, imo.

    There have been a few comments that make think the Defense is going to be that Caylee's death was accidental.

    I think they are keeping that as a last ditch option, but not as their main defense. I think their first choice is to try and prove she is totally innocent and had no connection with even the burial.

    Personally, I think the only defense that the defense has had was . . . . . . .

    WillenFan - I think you are right on that. I think it's the only way they can keep her chances lower that she won't get the DP. It's all they've got. If they go for broke and try to prove her innocent, they're playing Russian Roullette with her life......IMO

    That being said, they're going to have a tough time of it because of the computer searches.

    "He finally cracked it at 3 a.m. on the Friday he was set to fly home.

    "I found two results," Bradley told lawyers in his deposition. "One was for 'chloroform,' spelled 'c-h-l-o-r-o-f-o-r-m,' and that was dated March 17, 2008, at 14:43 p.m., 41 seconds. And there was one visit. And the second entry is for 'how to make chloroform,' and the same spelling on the 21st of March, 2008, at 3:16 p.m. and 30 seconds. One visit."

    There was also a Google search on the same computer for the term "neck breaking," Bradley said."

    "But defense attorneys are expected to argue there is no proof it was Casey who searched for those terms.

    One of Casey's ex-boyfriends posted a picture on his MySpace profile with the caption: "Win her over with Chloroform."

    Could they argue that it was the ex-boyfriend behind those searches?"


    It's possible the DT will try to put the searches on RM to take the suspicion off KC but there's still a lot to explain after that. I say, either she takes the stand or tries to get them to accept a plea. I just don't think this DT has the oomph to pull this off, no matter what they do.

    When KC was stealing money from her family she knew they would not call her on it. KC owed RM money and apparently he was trying to get it back from her. He let it be known he wanted the money back. What does KC do but openly use Amy's checkbook knowing that Amy would return. KC knew Amy was not going to just let her get away with it so why would she do it? KC did not care because at some point KC knew she was going to be held accountable for Caylee so she was living it up while she could without worrying about what the consequences would be. Using Amy's checkbook and writing her own name on the checks shows KC did not expect to get away with murder. She was enjoying her time in the Sun.

    RM had a job so unless he could be in two places at once the only logical person, since there seems to be a high concentration of chloroform reported in her trunk, would be KC. In fact at the time.....KC was the ONLY one not working. Also, wasn't this search done on the home computer? jmo

    I understand that Lambchop. As I said, there would be a lot to explain after that anyway. My point is this. What we truly believed happened (which is KC's hand that punched those keys on that computer) and what the DT would have a jury believe may be two very different things. It all depends on what and how the DT presents it. That is what I mean by playing Russian Roullette with her life. If she is put on the stand and expected to explain things away, it's just going to be lie after lie, as it has been all along. The rest of the evidence will not support an "accident", IMO no matter what they do.

    With great respect, I do not think HHJP is going to allow anyone to blindside anyone. He simply won't allow any sort of ambush or defense unless it has been revealed already. Their case so far is to bring in witnesses and to refute their statements, this is all they have to offer.

    This is why Baez and Co. couldn't reveal their defense because it is totally dependent on what the witnesses are going to say, they are more or less going with the, no she didn't, that's not true, never happened unless you have pictures to prove it, defense.

    The only strategy the defense has left. They should have used insanity and did not. So they are going to have to use sexual abuse. And blame it on George. George probably does not even realize how they are going to use him. They are going to say she is not well because of the ongoing every day non stop sexual abuse. Only option they have. They have nothing else.

    What if the defense is planning to throw Tone under the bus? Afterall he would be the least likely to be accused as Casey herself stated " no Tone had absolutely nothing to do with this "

    I do see that my fellow posters, for whom I have a great deal of respect, are saying over and over that the bus is heading for George, and the defense the DT is going to use is George sexually abusing ICA.

    For that to have any influence at all during the guilt phase, the DT would have to have some kind of evidence or confirmation it actually happened. To imply is not enough of a reason to bring someone to the witness box. The DT would need experts to testify to the effect this had on ICA and we know the DT has no mental health experts in the guilt phase, and I believe ICA would need to testify as to the actual events. None of these things is going to happen.

    What I think the DT is going to do is attack the forensic evidence and make the decision the jury is going to make between was this an intentional or accidental event. If the DT chips away, they may find a juror who has more than reasonable doubt ICA is responsible.

    The sexual abuse angle may be introduced in the penalty phase, but if ICA has been found guilty, the fact she was "afraid of her aggressive mother" or the imply she was abused by her brother and/or her father will have not one iota of influence on the jury at this point. Those will IMO be "so-what?" factors, not points causing a young mother to take her child's life.

    I believe they are going to show that Cindy and George were working and the only person who was not working was KC. This was on the home computer so how could Ricardo get there - that is a ridiculous defense, but anything is possible with Jose -

    Also, when they add in that three days prior, KC was CUT OFF from the bank and could not transfer money, might add some flavor to the mix.

    KC could care less about Cindy and George. George is going to get used big time -

    Interesting perspective. I tend to disagree though. I just think she was a stupid, narcissistic, sociopath. Didn't she use her own name when she stole from her grandma? And Cindy? And anyone else she stole from?

    I see it more as she thought she would never be held accountable. She never in her life that I have seen, was held accountable for anything, EVER! If caught, she could just lie her way out of it, or as she had done in the past, say "I'm sorry". "Want me to clean your house, to make it up to you?"

    Now with her trial approaching, it has to be pissing her off to no end, that she can't talk her way out of this one.

    It's almost comical when one thinks about the journey the defense team has taken over the last 2 years. From JB going along with the Zanny story to hints about RK somehow being involved, then perhaps KC had PPD to innuendo that some sort of accident happening, and the latest is trying to get the two psych docs to testify that KC was possibly suffering from PTSD or having "ugly coping." The problem with each of these strategies never seems to quite cover all of the behaviors of everyone from KC to each A family member. Like a shrunken fitted sheet that now only reaches over 3 corners.

    They are reaching and reaching quite deeply into a shrinking magic hat.
