    The dna leak

    I've been thinking

    If they did indeed have DNA that matched ,the police would run to rearrest Casey.
    The info released was a leak ,but never confirmed by the police.
    Seems the family contacted that search team Eqisearch {sp} and frankly I'm at a loss on what to believe.
    Police would not waste 1 second to arrest her if DNA matched ,body or no body!

    They aren't denying the leak isn't true either...they are just saying that "we are still looking at everything."

    Watch the briefing from the sheriff if the link doesn't go straight to the video.

    The family contacted TES because TP has been on here with WS & he told Cindy about it. Cindy called Tim Miller requesting help. TES will help if the family requests it.

    LE is just taking there time, Casey isn't going anyplace. Each day gives LE that much more time to prepare the case against Casey. If LE gets the body before Casey gives up the info Casey will be on death row.......JMHO

    Well, the info was reported by CNN, who has said that they have a law enforcement source. It's not like it's just a rumor floating around. CNN says they have a reputable source within law enforcement and that they verified the info, but that they can't name names. The info that has leaked is very specific regarding epithelial cells, etc that were found.

    Either you trust CNN as a reputable news source, or you don't. That's what it comes down to, IMO.

    I don't know that there would be a big hurry to arrest her. She isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    BTW, the same information was certainly reported by other news sources, as well. I just use CNN to make my point because that happens to be where I heard the information several times throughout the afternoon yesterday. I just wanted to clarify that I wasn't saying that the information came ONLY from CNN.

    I want her to be alive too. I have held out til this latest information regarding the test results. If thye are true, which I believe they are, that is the end of my hope.

    If they are thorough before they arrest her, no one can say rush to judgment and that no other suspects were investigated. they are doing everything by the book and are *looking at everything*. They have said that over and over.

    A REPUTABLE SOURCE in any police department would not release information that the department DOES NOT WANT RELEASED and that may damage the prosecutions case at a later date. CNN and all of the other news sources have been wrong many times on this case and many others. The fact that they will not allow their name to be released means that either they would lose their job for doing such an inappropriate thing or that the information itself is unreliable. This is of course my opinion, but also has been confirmed by a source with MUCH experience in law enforcement.

    This maybe wishful thinking but, I am holding out until we see the results on paper. The DA could be bluffing on some of this or what about the hair sample being a false positive?

    Could it be that there is confirmation of a Mitochondrial DNA link, is not as precise as DNA matching? Mito DNA may be enough for a conviction, but maybe the DA told them to press on for more precise DNA.

    I have to strongly disagree with you there. There are many other reasons for a source to remain unnamed other than just the two that you have listed.

    Exactly, they don't like open the mail and say hey, there's the DNA results, let's hop in the car and go arrest her. There are behind the scenes things that have to happen and LE and Prosecution are smart enough to know the proper procedures, get all their ducks in a row before taking the next step. It is up to them to prove their case and they would be foolish to rush if they don't have to.

    Mitochondrial DNA would be tantamount to useless in this case, as it could not differentiate between Casey's hair and Caylee's hair. Casey could easily say it was hers, through transfer, and whatever body had been in the trunk decomposing contaminated the sample. Plausible- of course not, reasonable doubt if thats all the evidence you have, you betcha.

    Im pretty solid their case is as tight as it can be without a recovery.
