Yes I am disappointed too. UNfortunately, the evidence "we are seeing" is not enough IMO to connect KC to Caylees murder even though we know she did it. Now we hear oh chloroform is natural when there is a decomposed body. Oh the defense loves that bombshell. Add in they didnt find the body soon enough cause of stupid mistakes. and the prosecution has a HUGE problem here.
I will repeat what I said before on here, IF this was not on tv every day for months, she would NOT have this dream team. Now that she does have the team they will argue and confuse jurors just like in the OJ case.
Think about it.
people are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
Though I would love to have as much forensic physical evidence as possible to convict this woman...I just don't need it myself to reach what I feel is an obvious conclusion. The last person to see Caylee alive was George who said she left the house with Casey. Casey shows up about 4-5 hours later at Tony's without Caylee - and Caylee is not seen again. Casey lies about what she did with Caylee - and completely changes her story at least twice. Nothing Casey tells LE can be substantiated because it is all lies. She showed no concern for the whereabouts of her daughter. She goes about her life without Caylee and parties while avoiding her family and old friends. Flash forward to finding the car ABANDONED - why would she abandon a perfectly good car? Because it stunk to high heaven. George, Cindy, and LE all smell decomposition in the trunk. The cadaver dogs hit on the trunk. The hair is found in the trunk. Caylee's dead body is found near the home. DUH!!!!! Honestly - what more do you need? But there really IS lots more and that isthe icing on the cake!
I have to agree. They can try, but I don't think it will be successful. She has been given countless "outs" to be able to claim it was an accident. She denied and lied. Her credibility is totally shot now anyway. So any claim she makes will lack credibility because she has already changed her story several times. Another change will not be taken seriously. And wouldn't she have to take the stand to claim it was an accident? Only SHE could testify to that so it would seem like she would have to. I don't see that happening because they would crucify her on the stand.
If KC hadn't done herself in with the invisinanny story, and all the other lies, she might have gotten away with this. No drugs in the hair. Chloroform not tested for because it's a natural byproduct of decomposition. Yep...I'm totally disappointed. The only thing I've seen in the evidence that supports putting the DP back on the table is the duct tape wrapped all the way around the skull. I just hope she doesn't get out of this.
BTW...isn't it a violation of CA's privacy to list her medications like that without her permission?
This analysis on the trunk carpet was released Oct. 2008 along with the odor analysis. I think it is regarding the stain in the trunk. It was consistent with decomp material. Science was never my best subject so I could be wrong but it's worth a look.
I remember someone posted that it takes tons of time to get this discovery together. It seems like the interviews and evidence we get in each dump is dated about 2 months before the release date. The DP was brought on only a few weeks ago meaning if the discovery does have to be released in a timely fashion, maybe we won't see this damning evidence that convinced them to go for the DP until a month or two?
Grrrr....my post was wasted when they merged the threads. I will try again.
I think we should remind ourselves first that the state is not trying to satisfy our curiosity. I know I was disappointed by the lack of fresh information, but then I reminded myself this is not about me.
Baez had to be disappointed with the information, IMHO. This was the Cain Dump, the final chapter in the find-the-body saga, and it pretty much closed any chances that he can get away with a "body was dumped after August" story. LE was very careful in these interviews to pinpoint just where people looked , and while they were close no one was close enough. Go back and look at the February evidence photos just to see how hard it was to locate the bag in that brush.
On top of that Kronk swears on a stack of Orange County regulations he saw the bag in August . Only problem is Cain did not care . Much OCSO internal investigation pretty much showed he was lazy and incompetent . What can Baez really do with that? Embarrass him further? Sure, but nothing about Cain will allow him to show the body was not there.
Take some comfort in the following. In the warrant for the December 19 search of the Anthony abode, there is mention that the FBI latent prints unit noticed some sort of residue on the duct tape in the perfect shape of a heart, prompting a search for the heart stickers. This was reported to OCSO via telephone, not email or via report. We have seen reports come back from the FBI that say no pieces or fragments of a sticker were found on the tape, but nothing about this residue or whatever it was that formed the heart shape.
We have not seen reports on analysis of the stain in the trunk, particularly the VFA analysis. That was collected some time ago. If the reports were in the hands of OCSO or the SA, they would have to go to Baez. However, if the FBI is sitting on them, it makes them a little harder for Baez to get. OCSO, however, can just pick up the phone to discuss the findings.
This could explain Baez's frushtration in receiving information from the FBI and his bumbling attempts at getting it. The stuff he is getting isn't really nailing his client to the wall. Yet the SA is raising the stakes and he knows stuff is missing. Seems to me it has turned into a bit of a game of poker, and SA is waiting as long as the system will allow before they show their cards. In the meantime they are probably hoping for a deal .
Do they have a straight flush or a pair of deuces?
Lets face it, before we heard of Casey Anthony how many of us did a search for chloroform or neck breaking on our computers? Any of us? No not likely.
I wonder how the body language experts would interpret the photos of Casey taken during the time from mid June to mid July? If there was no name with her photo, you can be certain they would say this woman looks to be glowing, in love, or a perfect example of a very happy woman having a fun time.. Any woman watching her would say I'll have what she had. ( From when Harry Met Sally)
I agree with JWG, the prosecution is not going to show its trump card so far out from the trial. What I think they are doing is selecting the documents they want dumped at regular intervals, just enough to keep Baez feeling confident that he can get Casey off. No way that will happen.
