    Monday, 20 June 2011, Day 23

    (I missed the beginning)

    9:04 - HHJP beginning the start of proceedings when Mason interrupted him asking for sidebar. Judge reminded him attorneys are to bring any issues to bring to court's attention before morning session, they are to contact court by 8:20 so they can be heard at 8:30

    9:08 - JA took Dr Rodriguez's deposition for 2 hrs Saturday, would like more time to review it. Ashton says he doesn't think Rodriguez is qualified to give an opinion about others telling difference in stinky smell v human decomp
    Dr. Rodriguez is scheduled as Defense's first witness today

    9:09 - Judge grants State’s request to delay hearing Rodriguez’s testimony

    9:10 - Anthonys are in court. Cindy appears to be reading her Bible
    JA wants JB/Defense Team sanctioned, another deliberate violation of court's order, mentioning also defense expert Eichenbloom. No deposition taken, concerned about contents of his testimony. State received only a short report with no opinion, plus 45-page PowerPoint presentation on Sunday! Eichenbloom showed up at JA's office yesterday. JA says Eichenbloom was turned away. No one needs to take depos, but reports do need to be filed.
    Ashton says JB and Company are again deliberately ignoring court's order. Ashton says he will depose Dr. Eichenbloom Tuesday evening if okay.

    9:14 - When JA stoppped talking, HJBP does not say a word. JB goes to podium. JB gives HIS definition of the court's orders regarding witnesses having to put in record what they intend to testify, JB accusing Ashton and the prosecution of refusing taking depositions, JB saying State at fault for not taking deposition of Dr. Eichenbloom, Baez says State violated same sanctions with no threats of citation or being held in contempt, JB saying witness has been listed for awhile and the state could have deposed him at any time, Baez says Ashton intentionally refused to do depos to narrow scope of defense questioning

    9:24 - JB says it's not bad enough that JA wants to omit his responsibilities to take the defendant's life, he wants to go after her lawyer too! JB called JA repulsive! Baez attacking HHJP's accusing him of disobeying court orders, we did not intentionally look at this order and say we won't obey it

    JB talked non-stop for 10 minutes!!

    9:25 - HHJP said "I want both sides to turn around and look at that clock and tell me what time it is."
    JA says 9:25; JB says 9:26 and says they can’t even agree on that
    The time was 9:25
    HHJP says it shows that both sides will never agree on anything, and the jury's been waiting more than 25 minutes! Perry says the jury has been sitting back there waiting, it's unacceptable.
    They will work a full day Saturday because so much time has been wasted. Here forward all attorneys are to be here at 8:30. We will start at 9:00, no more will we have this. Each Saturday we will work a full day. Be prepared to have witnesses to be here ready to testify.

    9:28 - Judge reading his court orders of Dec. 2, 2010 and Jan. 6, 2011 re: experts, their opinions, and grounds, mentioning how state wasn't allowed to use their powerpoint, talking about repeatedly violating court order with impunity, Supreme Court says exclusion would be proper, friction between attorneys, testimony of Rodriquez will be deferred, they will be having a short day on Wednesday because of Judge Perry's plans, tells attorneys to go over reports of experts, make sure their opinions are included in depositions or reports, exclusion may be proper remedy if it continues

    9:39 - JB says defense will delay second witness, third witness should be here in 30 minutes
    Judge threatens Jose with Florida Bar, saying Florida Bar may look at his repeated violations
    Judge allows jurors to leave their jury room where they've been locked in all morning, give them a break until 10:25

    9:42 - HHJP saying he's going to begin at 8:30, cut the lunch hour, and work all day on Saturdays

    recess until 10:25

    (note: recess went way past 10:25 until 10:58)

    10:58 - HHJP returns, says per joint stipulation between attorneys, recess until 9:00 am Tuesday

    End of Monday's session


    per WFTV:
    JURY WILL BE SEQUESTERED TO THE 23RD FLOOR OF THE COURTHOUSE DURING DELIBERATIONS AND THEY’LL HAVE ACCESS TO ALL THE EVIDENCE – THEY WON’T BE RESTRICTED TO ONLY THE JURY ROOM


    (Please note that I could have missed events that took place on Saturday prior to 8:45. When I tuned it, Judge Perry just calling court into session. On Monday, I tuned in a bit late, so I don't know if there was a before 9 am session.)

    In the courtroom, Tuesday, June 21, 2011:

    8:48 am - The state (Mr. Ashton) starts with issues regrading cross exam of defense witness Eiklenbloom due to late discovery.

    9:12:46 am - The jury returns.
    9:13:54 am - The judge states the defense may call their next witness.
    9:14:45 am - The witness (Jennifer Welch - OCSO Crime Scene Investigator) enters the courtroom.
    9:14:55 am - The witness is sworn in.
    9:15:21 am - The defense (Dorothy Simms) begins direct exam.
    9:27:14 am - D. Simms finishes direct.
    9:28:02 am - The State (Mr. Ashton) begins cross exam.
    9:28:45 am - Mr. Ashton finishes cross exam.
    9:29:08 am - D. Simms begins re-direct exam.
    9:31:24 am - D. Simms finishes re-direct.
    9:31:35 am - The witness is excused....subject to recall.
    9:32:02 am - The defense (D. Simms) calls Dr. Jane Bock (Botanist - Plant Anatomy, Forensic Botany) as their next witness.
    9:32:55 am - The witness (Jane Bock) enters the courtroom.
    9:33:13 am - The witness is sworn in.
    9:33:47 am - D. Simms begins direct exam. This witness suggests Caylee was only in the wooded area for 2 weeks. She is quite adamant about that.
    9:38:30 am - The judge accepts the witness as an expert.
    9:47:16 am - Mr. Ashton requests a sidebar.
    9:50:04 am - Sidebar is over.
    9:50:31 am - D. Simms resumes direct exam.

    10:33:18 am - Mr. Ashton begins re-cross exam.

    Mr. Ashton asks the witness if she knew that Caylee's hip bone was found buried 4" deep in "muck". The witness did not know that. He asked her if it would take longer than 2 weeks for that to happen and the witness states "a dog could have buried the bone. They do that you know." Mr. Ashton laughed and quickly composed himself and said "a dog buried the bone?" With this, he finished with the witness.

    10:34:53 am - Mr. Ashton finishes re-cross.
    10:35:01 am - The witness is excused.

    10:37 am - Court is in recess - 20 minutes for the jury, 15 minutes for the attorneys.

    10:56:41 am - The judge states "the court will come to order.

    The judge state he may impose formal sanctions. There are 3 parts to this for him to consider.

    11:22:06 am - Part 1 - His Honor has concluded the discovery violations were not inadvertant.
    11:22:29 am - Part 2 - His Honor has to decide if the violations are trivial or substantial. He has decided they are not trivial, but are substantial.
    11:23:23: am - Part 3 - Is there a prejudicial effect on opposing party on presenting their case? Exclustion of testimony used in rare occassions. The court will not allow the witness (Dr. Eiklenbloom) to testify about DNA anaylsis at this time. His Honor gives Baez until next week (Saturday) to file any motions they want for a Frye hearing.

    11:27:18 am - Baez is speaking about supposed "new discovery" just handed to him by the state.
    11:27:32 am - The judge cuts him off. They will "take up that issue at noon during YOUR lunch hour Mr. Baez."

    I missed the rest of the morning, but it sounds like it was very good.

    LDB addresses the court about an imate that may have had contact with KC. The inmate's child drowned in the family swimming pool and the grandfather found the child. The grandfather called 911 and administered CPR, but the child didn't make it. One has to wonder if this scenario is not where KC came up with her latest story for her defense.

    Also, LDB stated they are going to use phone pings and computer evidence from June 16, 2008 on rebuttal to prove the defense's story is not credible and to prove KC was the only one at the Anthony home at the time Caylee supposedly drowned.

    The "new discovery" the state gave to Baez was copies of the Anthony computer hard drive that he received 3 years ago.
    If someone can find the link to this part of court today, it is WELL worth watching. I don't have time to type it all out here today.

    1:26:44 pm - KC enters the courtroom.
    1:34:00 pm - The jury returns.
    1:35:40 pm - Baez resumes direct with Dr. Eiklenbloom (sp).
    2:06:09 pm - Baez finishes direct.
    2:06:44 pm - Mr. Ashton begins cross exam.
    2:37:29 pm - Mr. Ashton finishes cross.
    2:37:39 pm - Baez begins re-direct exam.
    2:38:51 pm - Mr. Ashton requests sidebar.
    2:40:56 pm - Sidebar is over. Objection is over-ruled.
    2:41:21 pm - Baez resumes re-direct.

    3:02:50 pm - Court is in recess.

    3:24:34 pm - The jury returns.
    3:26:03 pm - Baez resumes re-direct.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2011, Day 24

    Jury brought to courthouse in smoked-windowed van around 8:00 AM
    8:30 – prosecutors in court

    WFTV says Dr. Rodriguez was NOT co-founder of Body Farm as he stated on stand on Saturday

    8:47:22 – Casey enters
    8:48:15 – Judge Enters
    JA says they completed deposition of Dr. Eiklenbloom, clearly a discovery violation has taken place, Dr. will be allowed to testify, the matter of DNA samples from carpet shouldn’t be mentioned, his belief DNA can be gathered from decomposition material – formulated opinion on Saturday, should have held a Fry hearing
    Recommends full sanctions against Defense counsel. Will hold issue of contempt for another day.
    Another Defense witness has already testified re: DNA, decomposition & carpet stains, jury has already heard it.

    8:54 – Jb reading his list of excuses. Eiklenbloom should testify on degradation of DNA. What he would suggest…!!! Saying JA creates ruse! JB pretending to be cooperative, blaming Ashton for JB’s fault.

    9:00:18 – JA will compromise in some respect.

    9:01 – HHJP asking about items for sent for testing up north, paid for by the state: shorts, clothing, bag she was found in, JA says witness wasn’t aware what was tested.

    9:03:40 – JB says different types of DNA. Witness tests for low copy number DNA, says state refused request, but allowed another test, not low copy.

    9:05
    – HHJP grants JA’s request re: testimony, no DNA re: carpet, will be here ANOTHER TWO WEEKS, so they will schedule a Frye hearing in about a week giving state proper notice.

    9:11:56 – JB opposes state’s instruction. He read over it and will have to prepare another instruction. Will call another witness instead.

    9:13:29 – jury enters

    9:15:15 – Jennifer Welch, CSI, defense witness
    DCS asks about report 1 Feb 2009 aka End of Day Observations, 14 Dec 2008
    Dec 12 – 14 areas cleared of leaf litter and vegetation, 0 – 4 “ around trees & tree roots, 0 – 10” with tape measure
    p. 22 took pictures, cleared away vines obstructing view, but didn’t remove anything from remains took photos after scene cleared
    HHJP telling DCS to speak up, JA asking what she said, DCS seems very inexperienced, or at least very rusty or ill-prepared.
    Showing pic # 27of scene after vegetation cleared, log near skull, moved by Steve Hansen and Susan Meres (sp)
    Pic of scene after hanging veg. removed # 28

    9:27:36- DCS no more questions
    JA asks for pictures just used, pic # 27, can you point where skull was in pic? No
    JA no more questions

    9:29 – DCS asking if witness cataloged pictures. Witness says system creates numbers when she uploads pictures.
    Do you have call #s? Yes. Do you have # 1838? No. Asks witness to read her call #s.

    9:31:57 – Witness excused, subject to recall

    9:33:33 – Dr. Jane Bock, Botanist, plants & forensic botany, defense witness
    DCS and Defense guy setting up exhibits
    DCS asks witness to speak into microphone!

    9:39:00 – she looked at photos taken by medical examiners, visited recovery site, read reports by ME, Jennifer Welch, David Hall botanist
    Bock visited site on 1 Feb 2009 (7 weeks and one day after remains were found)
    Patrick McKenna took photographs of her at the site and her work there on 1 Feb 2009

    9:42 – JA suggests putting mic on DCS

    9:43 – pic of leaf litter # 29
    visited site 7 weeks, one day after remains discovered
    claims remains placed in area 2 weeks before discovered!!!
    Vegetation under vehicle, bits of leaves from camphor trees – none at the scene in the woods (does she know the car was driven for weeks later?)

    9:49sidebar # 1

    9:50:51 – end sidebar, JA continues
    Dr. Bock seems unsure, edgy
    Can’t tell how old roots are by looking at photos, too many variables

    9:53 – JA questions, she’s from Colorado, how much time spent in Florida as a botanist? Did thesis in 1966, on estuaries, semi-marine areas, food habits of tortoise! a vegetarian 1980-1990, her parents live in Florida, a friend wrote a Florida flora book!, read studies on grasses & grasslands, different area have different ecologies – swamp – hardwood trees at Suburban, some plants require much water
    In her opinion, could vegetation grow there in 2 weeks? Yes She says accumulated there. JA asking about roots in bone, 2 weeks in December? Claims she saw pics and bones. Never had experience with root growth in skeleton in place for several years. (her testimony sounds off)
    Ref: her depo, p 64 – changing her answer from depo, claims in a group she saw a 10-year-old skeleton, had limited experience with bones (defense should have warned her JA would compare her testimony to her depo)
    JA says leaf litter to near eyes of skull? Evasive answer. JA showing pic of skull with leaves. Bock says may be leaf, may be humus
    JA wants to know if it can accumulate in two weeks? Pic of skull with leaf litter at M.E. office – leaves of various colors including brown – just two weeks in Dec? Witness asks left or right side? JA describes how M.E. collected skull with leaves from site. He gives witness hypothesis, Yes, longer than 2 weeks.
    Basing less than 2 weeks by 1st pic of leaf letter shown, # 29

    10:14 – JA putting on microphone, asking witness to step down to look at big pic of # 29
    witness says she didn’t measure leaf depth

    10:17Casey has had head down, in “thinker” position, since beginning of skull talk

    10:18 – JA says one side of photo has more leaves than other side, why? Witness says people trampling the area, the wind, animals, semi-tropic plants, some evergreen trees, some trees drop leaves in Fall, she was TOLD where skull was, photographer visited a week before with LKB & expert witnesses

    10:21:55 – JA asking if she can render an opinion when Caylee was placed there? No, Yes - JA says, “You’ve lost me”. Two weeks? Witness says, “I don’t remember”
    re” depo – when she said “No, can’t give opinion”, depo taken in Feb.
    witness says body could have been there two weeks, possible it was there much longer

    10:25:41 – DCS asking how long she studied plants/botany in semi-tropical area – 30 years, taught 31 years. Asking root can or can’t grow into bone holes? Witness says no leaf litter on log, did anyone examine log? Jennifer Welch said it took two people to move it.

    10:29:03 – DCS asking witness to step down to draw on big tablet – soil, humus

    10:30Casey popped her head up when JA finished, now she looks bored

    10:33:15 – DCS ends re-direct
    JA asks if skull sank into leaf litter? She wasn’t aware hip bone was buried on the muck, says a dog or coyote could have buried it.
    The look on JA’s face was priceless at this moment.

    10:35:30 – witness excused – RECESS – 20 minutes for jury, 15 minutes for attorneys

    10:54 – judge in courtroom
    instruction by state & one by defense re: Richard Eiklenbloom, he provided an affidavit 21 Jan 2011, one page
    HHJP reading his rules for witnesses, JB objects saying he removed objected sections

    11:00:57 – Richard Eiklenbloom takes stand
    HHJP when were you contacted? 13 July 2010
    Ever informed report re: opinions? Only affidavit, nothing else
    JP reads his specuifications for witness. Ever informed of this order of the court? No. Not living in USA at time of his report. How did you communicate with defense team? E-mails, telephone, Skype. Main communication with Jose Baez, and some with Michelle. Ever asked to write complete report? On Saturday night, wrote short report. How many times between Dec 2010 – June 2011 were you in contact with defense? Were you ever out of touch? No. Disappear at any time? No

    11:10 – JB asking if he’s ever had to write reports on other cases? Yes
    JA asked something, didn’t hear what

    HHJP reading history of why the rules were established re: wtiness testimonies, responsibilities of attorneys, finds willful discovery violations, substantial prejudicial to opposing party, witness didn’t offer report, should JP exclude testimony re: DNA without Frye hearing

    11:25 – HHJP not allowing witness to testify re: DNA, decomp on carpet, must file report by Saturday – will then see if Frye hearing is necessary – remedy short of exclusion

    11:27 – JB says state just gave them compact disk, judge says we’ll take that up at noon on your lunch hour
    JA asking witness if anything re: DNA decomp on powerpoint.

    11:32:40 – jury seated

    11:47sidebar # 2

    11:53 – accepted as DNA expert – RECESS for lunch until 1:25 – witness leaves for lunch

    11:54 – JB saying state gave him compact disk taken 26 June 2008 from Anthony home includes pics of shot girls, just getting discovery after state’s witnesses testified on this subject, asking for Richardson hearing

    LDB says recently, last week, a citizen called their office about April Whalen, an inmate who was in OC Jail same time as Casey Anthony (2009), April’s child drowned in a swimming pool [boy, Christmas Day, 2007, per WFTV] at their home and was found by grandfather, unknown if inmate had contact with Casey Anthony or anyone else (items # 1-6 given to JB). JB has had info on disk for years, they gave it to counsel years ago (complete hard drive info), and today gave another copy to defense today in case state needs it for rebuttal as a demonstrative aid (item # 7). State is continually receiving information from concerned citizens.

    HHJP says items # 1-6 okay.
    JB says copy of hard drive is too much, like handing them 50 phone books, now they give them CD with some info which was on hard drive. Says Defense withdrew its computer expert witness.

    LDB says it was computer activity and all data from 16 June 2008 that’s on disk she gave JB.

    HHJP says 16th was the last day the victim was seen by grandparents, implicates what activities took place by family, GA, CA, LA, KC, in the 24 hours of 15, 16, 17 June crucial dates. It was given to JB, he chose not to look at relevant dates, it’s not new evidence, what JB chooses to do with it is his business

    12:16:55RECESS until 1:25/1:30

    1:28:12Casey returns to court, talking to JB, JB twitching his head from side to side, tapping his fingers & pen

    1:24:30 – jury returns

    1:36
    – JB direct – Richard Eiklenbloom, witness, explains DNA, factors of DNA being destroyed, disk, powerpoint, demonstrative exhibit

    1:59 – talking about duct tape, non-sticky side possible contamination, could it override DNA? Lower DNA masked? Or all DNA gone? Sticky side duct tape, found 17 allele, human DNA, small amount
    can extract human DNA from maggots, flies

    2:07:05 – JA cross, witness hasn’t PhD., presently student at University of Denver, studying for PhD.
    Re: their DNA company in Holland, has 3 people, lab in converted barn, 2008 expanded business to USA, great potential for business, USA lab not open yet, Did you invent low copy number DNA testing? Did you purchase a special kit? New kits on market/

    2:24 – JA asks hot, wet, environment is worse for DNA? Yes and bacteria is bad too.
    DNA on duct tape placed on human being, dumped into hot swampy area for 6 months bad for DNA, test bone for DNA, don’t swab outside of bone, DNA degradates, no flesh/skin on bones, extremely unlikely? Very difficult
    Example: 15 allele only masks identical low profile 15 allele, allele only masks identical low profile allele
    Did you ask to retest this test? No
    Do you know if any item in this case was retested by the defense? No

    2:38 – JB re-direct – asking about his lab & reputation
    JA asked to approach, No, asked to approach again, YES

    2:39sidebar # 3

    2:41:51 – when did you first get contacted by someone in USA to work on a case?
    The Masters case – body exposed to elements, able to get DNA from clothing
    JB asking if state refused to allow further DNA testing?

    2:56:34 – JA objects, relevancy – sidebar # 4

    3:02:55 – judge calls recess until 3:20

    HHJP said he needs to research because delicate balance on side of burden of proof re: JA’s question if witness was asked by defense to retest duct tape

    3:26 – JB continues his questioning
    3:28:30 – JA re-cross
    the small amount of DNA, the harder to relate to the crime, possibility of contamination greater
    Possible results for low copy number DNA:
    1) found nothing
    2) Caylee’s DNA
    3) Unknown DNA

    Unknown person or contamination – check DNA database of criminals & labworkers
    Secondary transfer possible, showing pics of samples of cases from witness files, asking if any were skeletonized? No

    3:36 – JB asking if can get DNA from clothing & other items for skeletonized remains? It depends
    JB saying 4th scenario in JA’s example, 4) duct tape never on Caylee’s face

    JA asking about rotting flesh & duct tape, if it rots, won’t all decompose? Yes
    Does it make a difference? In the elements?

    3:41
    sidebar # 5

    witness excused for today

    3:43:45
    – Yuri Melich, OCSO detective, defense witness
    JB direct – 8 Aug 2008 search of home, find any papers, bottles, cloths, products to make chloroform, receipts
    11 Dec 2008 search – anything relating to chloroform. Yuri asks to see copy of search warrant. Yes, they looked for chloroform items.
    20 Dec 2008 search – didn’t look for chloroform on this day, if found one he would have gotten an addendum to search warrant

    3:49 – LDB cross – on 8 Aug 2008, there was no reason to search for chloroform because test results of car not returned until late August, KC was in jail, then out of jail in late August

    JB re-direct – KC was out of jail, tests came back, why not search again?
    Yuri M said because we were looking for a living child at that time.

    Witness excused, subject to recall

    3:54:34 – Marcus Bainwise, witness, Research scientist, Oakridge National Laboratory, analytical chemistry, 27 years, research scientist, first time testifying in court
    JB direct -
    Dr. Arpad Vass requested he test some items
    “I don’t remember” 3 times re: questions asked
    JA objects saying “items” vague, sustained
    Speaks of his machine – chromatogram? – shows peaks of how much
    chloroform is a volatile chemical, evaporates like gasoline, decreases over time
    depends on 1) temperature of surface, 2) what surface is made from, 3) flowing air
    needs to know airflow in trunk, how many days in trunk, too many variables
    not surprised sample bags had nothing because volatile chemicals evaporate
    some chloroform was there, largest peak in chromatogram, vapor inside can with other chemicals

    4:20 – JB keeps interrupting his own witness
    tested 95° for a few days, again chloroform was highest peak on chromatogram

    4:28 – talking Benzine contamination
    4:29sidebar # 6

    4:33:30 – take 7 minutes stretch break

    4:42:11 – HHJP on bench yawning

    4:44:36 – jury returns
    JB questions witness Marcus Bain Wise
    Chromatograph? Air tests, water in air
    Related state evidence #122 sample frozen several times

    4:51:10 – JB trying to discredit Dr. Vass as a non-chemist, witness wouldn’t bite
    no other chemist verified his results
    state exhibit # 117 – trash found inside vehicle

    (sorry, I fell asleep on this testimony)

    5:24
    – JA cross – asking about air tests, gasoline found, consistent in trunk, not unexpected, considerable chloroform
    JB objects 2 times, overruled
    Machine set at 1 part per million, didn’t expect to see high levels of chloroform in test, couldn’t find good explanation for chloroform, unsure exactly where it came from, chloroform would have been stronger earlier, not weaker, were testing things coming directly from carpet

    5:40 JB re-direct
    asking if witness will gain from inventions? minimal gains, belongs to Oakridge Lab, Labrador Project funded project, research project
    LE and first responders use the machine

    JA re-cross – item used by military, no benefits from Laboratory financially, no royalty from Federal Govt use

    Court recessed until 9:00 AM
    5:55 – judge saying to attorneys if there are issues be in court at 8:30

    Bill Shaeffer, WFTV, saying last witness not favorable for Defense, protected reputation of Dr. Vass

    I hope someone else can please watch and take notes on Saturday because I won't be available, especially since HHJP has stated they'' hold court all day.

    I haven't had time to make or look at charts for the trial as I'm always exhausted after the sessions each day.

    Wednesday, 22 June 2011, Day 25

    (Thanks to mombomb, who took such wonderful notes in the trial thread, I was able to fill in the things I missed when my live feed skipped and finally stalled, forcing me to refresh several times.)

    8:30 – attorneys present

    8:41 – Casey enters – begins her day of “work”

    8:55 – HHJP enters
    tells attorneys to approach, no court reporter needed
    (I’m not counting this as an official sidebar since court reporter isn’t being used)


    8:58:50 – jury enters

    9:00Maureen Bottrell, defense witness, Geologist Forensic Examiner, FBI, 16 years
    BS & Masters Degrees, University of Georgia
    JB questions –
    Comparison analysis of soils
    Debris from trunk & around trunk
    Shovel
    22 pairs shoes from Anthony home and transport bag they were carried in
    soil from Suburban

    9:10 – JA cross - asks for moment with counsel
    JA - stipulation soil taken after top layer of soil removed at Suburban site
    JB continues - Trunk, mixed samples, not suitable for provenance study, no comparison done for trunk, study for soil on shovel stopped because remains were found – they were trying to locate when soil came from, no need after body discovered

    Many shoes unworn, some had minor wearing, 3 pairs with soil, not from remains site, in transport bag found nothing

    9:15 – JA asking if test proves shoes have never been to Suburban? No
    Witness explains how it wouldn’t show up on shoes, absence of soil means nothing

    9:16:50
    - JB re-direct - Asking if scenarios mentioned are speculating? No

    Witness excused

    9:19 – JA wants sidebar # 1

    9:20:14
    Madeline Montgomery, defense witness, Forensic Toxicology, FBI, 15 years, George Washington University
    JB direct -
    tests for drugs, poisons – hair, liver, brain
    she does testing for FBI, state, and local

    testings on Caylee’s hair mass, state # 271, for alprazolam (xanax) clonazepam, negative, tested for 9 other drugs - Valium, ruffies (date rate drug), and other benzos - also ketamine. All negative.

    Not always able to get a positive result from hair tests, even in controlled settings

    9:33
    – JA direct – hair isn’t best way of testing for drugs, even if positive, can’t tell when exposed to drug, they don’t test for chloroform

    9:35 – JB re-direct – can test for chloroform in liquids but not in hair

    9:36 – witness excused

    9:36:51Michael Sigman, defense witness, Chemistry Professor, University of Central Florida, formerly worked at Oakridge National Laboratory, knows Dr. Arpad Vass since 1990
    CM – direct – was contacted by Eric Walton, UCF police about this case
    Dr. Vass wasn’t available and recommend M. Sigman because he was local to collect air samples from vehicle trunk
    Used Tedlar Bags to collect air samples
    Doug Clark, his lab associate at UCF, assisted, they went to OCSO, pulled air from the vehicle trunk, opened trunk enough to get needle inside and suck air into bags
    2 samples: 1 liter bag & 300 ml bag
    left the two bags with OCSO
    large bag went to Dr. Vass
    small bag went to UCF
    UCF tests – organic components, gasoline
    More micro-fiber samples in trunk = 7 ˝ hours
    Stronger response than from air bags
    Gasoline, chloroform, dimetheldephoxide ?, tetrachloroethylene,
    Was human decomposition in trunk? Can’t conclusively determine human remains in car. Does understand there was “garbage” in there.
    Took six air samples total: 2 Tedlar bags, two 40- minutes exposures to trunk, two 7 ˝ hours exposure to trunk
    Could be attributed to gasoline.

    10:09 – CM ends - JA asks for recess, 15 minutes

    10:28sidebar # 2

    10:32 – sidebar ends, return jury

    10:33:14 – JA begins –
    July 21, 2008 first air samples taken, cracked open trunk, inserted 8” needle, didn’t know carpet and spare tire cover had been removed on July 17th.
    JA asking size of ml. – small amount of air, asking about chlorine from a swimsuit, and about chlorine, chloroform, et cetera. Was there an odor from the trunk? Yes.
    Witness has no background in human decomposition.

    10:47 – JA ends
    CM up – re-direct
    Asking about tests & 3 compounds, unsure of source of those compounds, mostly gasoline, yes.

    10:48:30 – JA asks if witness was surprised to find gasoline? No
    10:49 – JA ends

    10:49Susan Mears, defense witness, OCSO, crime scene supervisor
    JB showing pics – red plastic Disney World bag, inside was a Gatorade bottle, how far from skull was it found? Seven inches.
    No more questions

    10:54 – witness excused

    10:55Dr. Michael Rickenbach, FBI Forensic Chemist, forensic chemistry, defense witness
    JB questions – report submitted 6 July 2009
    Bottle, liquid, syringe with liquid

    10:58:15 – JA objects, items not in evidence, JB says they’re in possession of the Sheriff’s Office

    sidebar # 3

    Report of 11 December 2008
    received items from OCSO, carseat Q-47 and steering wheel cover Q-48.
    no chloroform found on either, didn't analyze entire carseat, only took samples from it
    Doesn't know why steering wheel cover was requested

    Were you informed that chloroform might have been on someone's hands?

    OBJECTION, hearsay, relevance, SUSTAINED

    Report of 6 July 2009
    He was given doll

    JA - if item is marked, it should be put into evidence before being discussed

    HHJP - he can say what he has seen

    Box marked as Defense Exhibit 33 - doll, took a sampling, analysis of sampling showed no chloroform

    No further questions.

    11:09:30 - JA cross
    Re: doll, was there not an earlier indication of chloroform? there were indications chloroform may be present in very small amounts, he asked for another doll, co-worker brought in a doll, very small amounts found. Witness stated there wasn't enough to make a determination.

    11:11:18 - JB wants sidebar # 4


    11:14:30 - end sidebar
    JA - The negative control is usually run with the same sample. Because he got indications of possible chloroform, he wanted a negative control doll. He got it and it gave very, very low indications of chloroform also and therefore, he was not comfortable to say chloroform was present. The negative control was a similar doll. (thanks to mombomb for this)
    chloroform amounts were too small

    No further questions

    11:16:10 - JB re-direct - asking about the dolls
    Co-worker has a doll with chloroform on it? Not what witness said
    Didn't have enough data to say that chloroform was on either item. Chloroform may have been produced in the manufacturing of the dolls. (blame China!)

    11:17 - JA wants Sidebar # 5

    Results in report of 6 July 2009

    Analyzed liquid in the gatorade bottle and syringe
    JB showning Defense exhibit # 32 - a photo of gatorade bottle. The liquid could've been a cleaning product, testosterone products were also identified. Syringe also contained testosterone compounds.
    Liquid substance was identified by using GCMS and time of flight MS. (thanks, mombomb)
    Detected very low levels chloroform in liquid in bottle, didn't report them because at such low levels, could have come from cleaning product

    JA stating testimony was provisional with the items being placed into evidence at some later point.
    JA re-cross (missed time)
    He did not report out the chloroform because it was in such a low amount.
    GCMS can't identify cleaning product, but the components led to possibility it could be a cleaning product

    11:24:40 - witness excused

    11:26 - Karen Lowe, defense witness, Hair Expert
    JB - direct - hair & fiber analysis, clothing from Casey's closet & bedding, looking for hair fibers

    Report of 13 August 2008
    tested items of clothing from KC's closet, hairs and fibers were tested, no findings of apparent decomposition.

    Report 13 October 2008
    debris from a trash box from the vehicle,no signs of apparent decomp found

    Report 1 October 2008
    specimen Q-25.1. This hair examined for decomp, none found, was from trunk liner

    6 November 2009 (or maybe December?)
    4 items analyzed, no apparent decomp found

    11:33 - sidebar # 6

    Report of 25 June 2009
    trash from Sunfire
    12 items from trash
    8 items from trunk
    found no decomp on hairs

    items from the ME's office, fibers from Caylee, compared fibers with fibers found in trunk, no fibers consistent with apparent decomp

    Items from the A residence - fabric comparison of duct tape from remains and duct tape found in the residence, woven fabrics - polyester & cotton (res.), only polyester (remains) - not from same source.
    Vacuum cleaners from residence collected months later, not examined at that time, did examine them later

    11:38:58 - hairs # 217 compared hair mass. One hair found not consistent with Caylee's hair

    11:41:55 - sidebar # 7

    11:46:10
    - Judge says take a 5 to 10 minute recess

    11:52:49 - jury returns

    11:54:25 - JB - unknown hair collected from scene, had to test individuals who had been at recovery scene (witness lists names of people who were tested) - not list of everyone at scene, that hair is still unidentified
    examined items from scene, residence, car - she issued 9 reports
    How many hairs? Many
    Only one hair with decomposition

    11:59:55 - JA cross - re: unknown hair, decomp hair from trunk, witness didn't know if Casey was living at Anthony house where hair was collected

    JB re-direct - asks if she would have tested hair from where Casey was staying if it had been given to her? Yes. (duh, JB)

    11:02:10 - witness excused

    12:03 - recess until tomorrow, will have extended day on Saturday - jury exits

    12:05:29 - dismisses attorneys and court for the day until 9AM, 8:30 for attorney matters



    I hope someone else can please watch and take notes on Saturday because I won't be available, especially since HHJP has stated they'll hold court all day.

    (All errors, misspellings, typos, and comments my own)

    Report of 27 January 2009 – hairs & fibers from Caylee’s hair mass and three pieces of duct tape – no hairs suitable for testing, consistant with hair mass & duct tape, textile fibers preserved, no tests done

    9:34 – JA cross
    re: study of hair in cars, photos already in evidence

    9:37:55 – JA showing pics – 600 hairs from 15 living individuals, before & after pics, some changes in appearance, no decomposition, color of hair doesn’t make any difference, showing lots of pics from experiment

    9:52:43 – KC & DCS whispering while JA showing pics of post-mortem hairs

    10:02:54 – JA ends

    10:03:01 – JB asks did you test any hairs from garbage? Post-mortem hairs don’t list days they were exposed, Shaw refers to his notes, outside environmental conditions are different in Tennessee test than Florida conditions
    post-mortem banding is well-established science, testing was done to learn more, can’t say a hair definitely came from a dead person, JB badgering with repeating same question over & over – JA objects – arguing, sustained

    10:17:05 – JB ends
    JA asks 2 questions to clarify the mess JB made, no ante-mortem hairs had post-mortem banding

    10:58:12 – end of sidebar, JA’s objection sustained

    11:03:20 – JA asking about witness’ work in chemistry vs. toxicology? Director of toxicology, his area limited to toxicology, not expert in all areas of forensic chemistry
    JA wants him known as expert witness only in toxicology, not chemistry

    11:08 – HHJP says witness accepted as expert only in forensic toxicology

    11:45:20 – end sidebar
    DSC asking about blank samples, it’s used as an extra test

    DCS ends

    1:43:12 – JA asking if Logan’s lab could do the air test in question? Yes.
    * JA puts can on the witness stand, can you do these tests?

    Jackson vs. State; Overton; Judge said he asked Defense to read Cuban vs. State before lunch

    2:13 - * witness not qualified as expert in air samples to render opinions
    Door not opened, but defense was trying to open it, line of questioning with cans not good
    DCS saying jury should be told – Judge says no, telling DCS she didn’t object to cans, but objected to burden of proof
    Mason wants instruction to jury on burden of proof

    Judge tells JA he can proffer now

    JA asking witness he could test with tedlar bags, detail by detail? Yes, No, not enough information on how to test was performed.
    Both sides read another case

    2:24 – 10 minutes RECESS

    2:36 – SIDEBAR # 10
    2:40 – Judge reading instruction on burden of proof in Florida, defense has no burden to prove anything

    2:46:32 – Jennifer Welch, CSI photographer was at discovery scene,
    JB asking if Caylee’s shoes or socks were found at the scene? No.
    Witness excused

    (Is he kidding? Little kids don’t always wear shoes & socks inside their homes in the hot months. Caylee could have been barefooted or wearing little flip flops that weren’t transferred with her.)

    2:48:30 – Cindy Anthony, witness
    JB direct – asking about home desktop computer, all family, even Casey’s friends used the computer, did you search in March 2008 for chloroform? Yes, chlorophyll, dogs were ill, the chloroform, hand sanitizers around small child children, acetone, hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol. Cindy claimed someone was injured and she looked up injuries.
    Claims there was an error in her time card, her supervisor did it, scheduled as working while on vacation, not allowed to work/show more than 8 hours per 8 hour days
    Pics of Sunfire’s trunk shown, it was purchased in 2000 for Lee, George and Cindy bought it, Lee drove it until 2005, George and Casey drove it after then
    Stain in truck was there when they bought it, when she cleaned the car, she thought she saw an indentation of cylinder can in trunk
    JB – no more questions

    3:00:20 – LDB cross – asking was she home 17 March 2008? Yes, it’s possible even though work records show she was at work

    CM objects

    3:04:20SIDEBAR # 11

    3:12 – end of sidebar. Judge saying brief/legal matters to take care of, sending jury out

    PROFFER begins

    Sgt. visited Tinelli March 2009, asking her to record conversations with GA & CA – she was reluctant to get her husband’s permission to do so
    Another time spoke to Linda about wiring her, didn’t do it though – did retrieve phone message from Linda’s message machine of message left by Cindy Anthony

    Judge asking CM why this is relevant & any material fact?
    CM says relevancy to theory of defense, what happened after accidental drowning, officers tried to get incriminating statements, not able to get evidence

    LDB – no evidence obtained, motivations not relevant for jury to consider

    CM says state is using same premise saying duct tape is murder weapon

    Judge says admission of all evidence is relevant by proffer, evidence does go to proven fact, defense says drowning & bizarre behavior, defense not relevant, not theory of defense per proffer

    (I must have missed something here. This appears to have been another proffer without jury? Not sure.)

    3:58:00 – witness excused
    court reporter getting information, sitting next to Jeff Ashton
    court reporter goes back to her desk

    that morning he spent 1 hour at Anthony house, went cruising with Casey, then dropped her off at her home, GA wanted to speak to him privately, it’s noted in his report what GA said
    later Det. Went on Universal tour with Casey, Sgt Hosey and other LE there (missed the name), car was confiscated after Casey was arrested – made arrangements with GA to get the car

    SIDEBAR # 14


    4:49:43 – RECESS until 9AM Saturday, jury excused

    4:50:51
    – JB says Defense will rest on Wednesday or Thursday

    State rebuttal should take 1 or 2 days

    Closing arguments 1 or 2 days

    JB saying Defense opposes state splitting closing arguments between attorneys, claiming they would have four closing arguments
    I think one of the prosecutors said they wouldn’t split rebuttal argument.

    Judge asks how to you figure? JB says if each attorney gets a say, that’s four
    Judge says no. He says splitting closing between attorneys is okay but not rebuttal, only one gets to do rebuttal.

    Judge citing Judge Ferrer (sp) re: closing argument parameters, can email it to attorneys, it’s very long, will tale about it Monday

    JB crying about phone records of Kronk & Athonys not received from prosecution, major violation,
    LDB says they gave defense all records.
    Judge tells JB the state didn’t use the records in trial, it’s too late to be going after red herrings.
    JA says Dr. Rodriquez will not be testifying, prohibited by Department of Defense, his job in jeopardy.
    What can we tell jury?

    CM saying we could have forced him to stay, hold him up in hotel, CM doesn’t want to say he “just withdrew” as a witness

    JB (politely, using different words) accuses JA of lying

    JA says his employers say Dr. Rodriguez on TV

    JB threatening to write a motion on this situation

    Judge says he wants Dr. Rodriguez’s captain to testify, not in person, defense said they didn’t want his job in jeopardy & someone could testify

    Judge asking state to decide if any additional lesser charges against Casey for jury to consider when they are finally given the case to decide? Let him know so it can be written in his directions to the jury.

    5:19:56 – RECESS until 9 AM Saturday, any issues be in court at 8:30 AM

    Judge says there will be only one hour lunch on Saturday


    (Please ignore my usual typos)

    (Fifth, IF you can move this post and put it in it's proper Friday place to avoid confusion, please do so. Thanks.)

    Note: I didn’t watch and take notes on Saturday, the 25th. Thank you, Fifth, for your notes of Saturday. Wow! Short day! Legal issue, uh-oh!

    SAT. - 6/25/11 Day 28

    Saturday 6/25/11 Day 28

    JURY WAS not PRESENT for anything that occurred this morning.


    8:4xx?

    Ashton says new evidence was handed to him at 8:40am by Defense.
    He objects.
    Contentious debate ensues between both sides.

    Defense trying to add evidence/powerpoint listing each item in the trunk including their chloroform content percentages of each which defense wants to allow their expert, Dr. Furton(sp) to include in his testimony.
    State objects & says they need a Richardson(sp) hearing.
    Judge wants the original Report from Dr. Furton prepared prior to trial clarifying what he originally said he’d testify to, his depo and the ‘new’ evidence. Judge will make a decision after a review of all.

    8:59 Mason says another subject entirely different needs to be addressed. Team leaves courtroom w/ KC headed for Judge’s chambers. KC came out by herself visibly upset and tearing up. Then she is called back in and released again. Prosec did not go in at first but later did. Then both teams came out and Judge returned.

    9:40 Judge at bench
    'both sides concure a legal issue has arisen, not related to the issues this morning' regarding Dr. Furton, that necessitates a recess.
    Therefore we will RECESS for the day and return at 8:30am Monday.'

    Post I hope this is okay - no discussion, please

    NO FURTHER DISCUSSION HERE - reference post only

    Please REFER to my post in Caylee's Thread, have posted a chart;

    Upon listening to Kathi B. and Bill S. discuss what happened on Saturday, they said JB accused the judge of siding with the state! I don't know...JB saying if JA says something often enough it must come to fruition in his world, but JB doesn't believe them to be true. The arguments of JA and JB are at the very beginning of Satruday's session. Also listen toward the end what KB says about the jury on Friday! There could have been a surprise waiting for them that KB wasn't privy to, maybe.

    Our Media Time-Stamped Thread has all videos and the review of the courtroom action by Kathi Belich & Bill Sheaffer.

    In the end of today's session, not mentioned in Fifth's excellent recap, I saw on the video (WFTV), after court was recessed, everyone was kicked out of the courtroom, while the attorneys and Casey stayed behind. Interesting. Not even media was privy to the rest of what went on today. FYI only.

    If this isn't appropriate for this thread, please remove.
