    Did Lee, the Anthonys' or a friend have a police scanner?

    Thinking these people have had a jump on everything, especially now that we have so much more crazy information.
    This whole thing is way out of control. Alot of fodder for the defense even though LE had KC dead to rights. I still say they can raise enough doubt to sway one confused little juror. If not all the A's are indeed going down with her as there's no other explanation.
    I started the thread, Place where body found, Too Strange and since I've stuck with that analogy.
    Can anyone else think of reasons they would be so on top of things and why all this confusion?
    Be sure to watch for my book I'd die for you.

    Hopefully will be published

    good question. a scanner would have been handy. they seem like people who would have those, well lee at least. and you can pick up phone covos with those too.

    I would not be surprised if LA had a scanner. He seemed to enjoy is investigative role.

    That is just a traffic type channel..there are loads of other more interesting one's on a scanner.
    My daughter dated a County Sherrif for awhile and insisted she have a scanner so she knew he was o.k. They have a direct private channel that no one can hear but LE but all the others are very interesting.

    Very possible. Hey, maybe LE confiscated it during one of their searches. LOL

    Even if they had one, for the really important things you'd need to know the codes and each department has their own codes. We always had scanners going in the newsroom when I was a reporter. They might use actually words and phrases for the not so important things but they always used code if it was something they thought might draw rubberneckers.

    We had the codes but it's not something handed out when you buy a scanner. The various police and sheriff's departments gave us theirs.

    You can actually pick up the police scanner online. When this case first began and we were wondering if Casey was going to be re-arrested, some nice person gave us all a link to police scanners in that area.

    Let's not forget that KC was apparently dating half the younger force--the reason one young officer resigned and another one got fired in late Aug.

    You use to be able to pick up phone conversations with scanners back in the day..Since the day that the 800 mhz phones came on the market you can no longer catch phone calls...even landlines that are using handheld cordless phones with that high of a frequency can no longer be detected on scanners...And most of your large police stations have went to 900 mhz and unless you have a very expensive scanner you can no longer hear what the officers are being dispatched to, or what their response to the call is.

    One other thing to consider is the laws in the state of Florida in regards to owning a police scanner as well. There are certain states that do not allow for a civilian outside of the scope of law enforcement or media to own a scanner. They don't want the bad guys being one step ahead of them and having the ability to conduct crime diversions so they can commit the actual crime itself. I don't know what the law is in Florida and alot of LE across the U.S. has gone to Motorola type of scanners that operate on higher frequencies as well.
    I was told to cheer up, it COULD be worse...........sure enough I cheered up? And it got worse!
