Dr. Gary Utz testimony (Medical Examiner)
ICA's face is now buried in her sleeve/garment...
Dr. Utz is talking about the condition of the skull. Hair is extending on top of the skull. Mentions the duct tape. Referring to photo: this is the skull again. And it pictures acurately what it shows. What is flowing down on the skull are strands of hair. The hair mat can be seen on the photo. Another photo of the skull from the side and it is acurately portrayed. Now we are looking at the right side and back of the skull. Can clearly see the hair and the TAPE. The tape appears to be almost covering the eye sockets.

"Tell the jury why it's unusual for the mandible to remain attached..."

Mandible stays in place when moved. Unusual because normally when it reaches this stage of decomp, mandible won't be attached. Still attached because of hair mat and plant material.

Tape was no longer adhesive, but there were parts that were attached to the hair and had also slightly attached to the mandible.
he thinks the fabric of the tape was stuck to the mandible, but not the "sticky part" of the tape.The world is full of monsters with friendly faces and angels full of scars. ~ Unknown

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

"The mandible is usually left behind; mandible is still attached due to hair mat and plant growth"
"The tape was no longer adhesive but there were still small portions of the hair attached to the tape and to the mandible itself"
"Part of the fabric of the tape was stuck to the mandible vs the adhesive of the tape"
"Roots had grown into and around the hair mat"

"Once I removed the tape and teased apart the hair the mandible was easily removed"

Next photo: the tape after it was separated from the remains. You can see it's wrapped in circular fashion #caseyanthony
