    Canadian forensic anthropologist Scott Fairgrieve joins Casey Anthony's defense

    I didn't know if we should start a thread on this but...

    Scott Fairgrieve

    The head of the forensic science department at a Canadian university is the newest member to join Casey Anthony's defense team.

    Forensic anthropologist Scott Fairgrieve, chair of Forensic Science at Laurentian University in Ontario, will be helping attorney Jose Baez's team as an expert consultant in the search, recovery and analysis of human skeletal remains.

    "My role in the case is basically peer review," Fairgrieve told the Orlando Sentinel. "I will be reviewing reports on the evidence. So far everything I've done has been remotely."

    The forensic anthropologist said the interest in the case against Casey Anthony has not reached the media frenzy in Canada as it has across the U.S.

    Did the defense team not already have someone that does this on their team? Any one know or heard of this guy?

    Yes, he's a fairly well known forensic scientist. He's very good.

    Does that mean Kathy Reichs can't be bothered anymore? Whatever happened to Koby?

    as for Koby...think some of his comments on NG are biting him in the butt....she warned him that some things could be used against him....

    Koby wanted to keep his career, and joining forces with Baez wasn't going to do that! LOL JMHO
    He couldn't tell the defense what they wanted to hear!

    I'm hopping this means Kathy is done with this case. I was so disappointed that she would associate herself with this. Maybe she thought better. One can hope.

    I also hope Kathy has run for the hills. It made me sick that she would be involved in the defense.

    My sentiments exactly. I was very surprised that a professional of her caliber would choose to associate herself with a case like this one that has so many negative undertones. Not to mention the potentially career ending effect it could have if things continue along the same unsavory lines it began on months ago.

    Does anyone know for sure whether she withdrew from the case?
    From:"Phases of Grief By Cayseeomarie"
    1: Forge as many stolen checks as possible
    2: Buy Beer, Lingerie and more Beer
    3: Enter "Hot Bod" contest; for "investigative purposes"
    4: "Dirty Dance" with female friends
    5: Practice poking self in eye repeatedly to produce "tears"
    6: Alienate squirrel population of U.S.
    7. Have cheesy, happy Italian words tattooed on your body to properly accessorize "grief"
    8. Go directly to jail

    How many "experts" does Casey need on her team? This is rediculous and it makes me ill. It's one thing that in this country everyone has a right to a fair trial and someone to represent him or her. But this has gone too far, she's not O.J. and she doesn't have two dimes to rub together that wasn't given to her or she didn't steal from someone. Ick! My stomach is turning this morning.

    I havent heard if she did withdraw but I cant imagine why they would need 2 people in the exact same field. She should be concerned about her career, I hope the pressure of that caused her to withdraw.

    Peer review is a process where one's report is subjected to scrutiny. He was probably imo reviewing Reichs' findings and report.

    Casey may not have two dimes to rub together, but what she does have is popularity, good or bad. Notorious cases like this make household names out of those involved. Why do you think Gloria Alred volunteers to take cases "pro bono"?
