WOW!!! This is just what I needed to hear. After watching that scene in court with the lovely LKB, and the subsequent press meeting after court, I was beginning to feel as though this case just might confuse a jury so much with all of her "teachings" to the judge and jury that some juror might just fall victim to her superior expertise.......and throw a kink into the verdict..............
PLEASE WAIT TILL I PULL MY TONGUE OUT OF MY CHEEK
My question is.....does chloroform show up in hair folicles? Would it show up if it was administered on a regular basis?? And can it be determined for how long it was given??
FWIW, IMHO, this 'slip of the tongue' by Baden would not be spontaneous...rather, it would be the beginning of the defense sowing the "it was an accident" defense when the ZFG thing completely unravels @ trial.
Baden first advanced his accidental o.d back in Sep '08....before his wife was enlisted in the defense.
Just emailed Kathy B just in case the media did not catch it.
Another piece of the puzzle is fitting, isn't it? If this true and LE does have those kind of results, it throws accidential out the window. You don't mess around with chemicals with a child. It makes sense why JB is interested in RM and his computer. I bet that KC has instilled his motive to be jealousy. That he was so upset over KC new relationship that he framed her for Caylee's death. IMO
I'm sure LE tested the hair or hairs of Caylee's found in the car and also the hair's on the duct tape and if indeed they tested for cholorform, this is the reason LE stated a while back that they think Caylee's death was intentional.
The autopsy didn't give us COD so I have been wondering what evidence LE has to claim they know it was intentional.
IMO, proof of chloroform in Caylee's system proves it.
Baden went on to say that drugs found in one's hair is NOT relevant to a COD inquiry but IS relevant to show a history of use of a drug. If chloroform was found in Caylee's hair it will point to a history of it being used on her. This would be very damning for the defense.
IMO, KC had to have been administering chloroform over a period of time - long enough to allow the chemical to show itself not only in the hair follicle, but the hair growth. The experts can even tell the approximate length of time the chemical was being given according to the amount of hair growth that shows chloroform AND in what concentrations at various stages. These tests have long been proven to be accurate.
My posts are my opinion only.....
Oh my! Bombshell news and we heard it here FIRST (as we do with other interesting tidbits) - thanks to Tracey! I can't wait to see how they will try to straighten this slip-up out.
...adding...just an extension of the "Todd Black" oopsie late last year...
Will you PLEASE let me know if she responds to your email? I'd LOVE to hear her response.
But, wouldn't the ME's report have indicated something regarding chloroform as likely COD if this information was truly available via forensics on the hair???
I understand "in" the hair would mean peri-mortem...so...a technicality?
I'm just sayin'...
If I am not mistaken, RM deleted the advertisment for chloroform off of his computer the day that KC was arrested. I thought it was odd at the time and now I wonder why. Anyone else?
And the defense whines about leaks!!!
A couple of months back Baden was floating an accidental chloroform overdose theory. He said that it was common for young mothers to use chloroform as a babysitter. (IMO, it is impossible because of how chloroform has to be administered and I challenge Dr. Baden to cite ONE instance where anyone has ever done it.)
But, this isn't the first time Baden has brought chloroform up. It hasn't come up in discovery. But, it is obviously out there and even a month ago Baden was trying to do damage control by saying it was an accident.
If this is true, it could shed new light on why CA was so reluctant to give LE Caylee's hair brush. They probably couldn't do toxicology on the small amount of Caylee's hair found in the trunk. They had to preserve the "death band" hair for evidence. With speculation of drug use on Caylee, CA didn't want to give up hair to be used for toxicology. She knew KC was capable of this.
A lock of Caylee's hair was taken during the last SW at the house as well as ALL hairbrushes.
Web Sleuthers doing what you do best! way to go!
I didn't watch the show, but did watch the clip that was posted. Assuming Geraldo (and NG) already knows the answers to questions he asks, I think G had talked to DrB before broadcast and was set to show the world that he was going to help the Casey defense. When he asked the question to prove that the hair analysis didn't matter, he already knew the answer DrB would give. So, with the next question (do you mean-are you saying?) he added Caylee's name in it thinking that DrB would say it was the same with KC case also, but DrB actually broke the case wide open. It backfired on G and I'll bet he's in hot water now with JB.

I hate to say this because of Caylee, but please, please, please let this be true so that there is justice for Caylee.
*brain fart: is there any way chloroform could be absorbed into hair after death? Or only through the roots, meaning it must have been administered before Caylee died?*
And on which hair? The ones found in the trunk with decomp? Or the hair from Caylee's remains?
