I haven't started a thread here in years, but this fascinates me because it's all news to me!
What do we know about this "KW" person who supposedly grew up with Casey and did his own search last year? And did he search in both August and October?

Here is a cached copy of the original discussion back in December when tfrohning first discovered there was another guy mentioned as having turned in a tip about the end of Suburban Drive, and they compared it to what the Meter Reader said.
I want to know exactly where this guy was and what he saw. What stuffed animals were there, and were they in a bag or out of a bag. I'd also like to know all the places he searched, and exactly how he knows Casey.
On 8/18/2008 at 1251 hrs I responded to call xxx in reference to found property at the dead end of Suburban Dr. zone 20. I meet with the reporter KW who advised me that he was told by a physic (sp - psychic) that in this area was some clothing and stuffed animals. The reporter said he went there and found those things. I arrived on scene and saw the items in question, and they showed signs of being there for an extended period of time due to the roots growing in the clothes and the decaying plastic bag that there (they) were in.
Question to Deputy Cain: Did you write a report and what did you do with the items?
Answer: The items were left at the scene.
October Report Transcription:
On December 16 at 1545 hours I obtained sworn written statements from Ms. Kathleen R. who is the Assistant Principal for Hidden Oaks Elementary and from Mr. Robert U. who is a fourth grade teacher at the same school in reference to information they wanted to provide to the Orange County Sheriff's Office under the above listed case number.
Mr. U. advised the following information: On Oct. 21, 2008 at approximately 1035 hours an unknown male, later identifed as Mr. Keith W., was observed by a group of unknown students who were in the bus loop of the school for physical education and they witnessed Mr. W. was carrying a shovel or a stake. Mr. U. initiated contact with Mr. W. As he approached Mr. W., he told Mr. U. he did not want to alarm anyone, but he was looking for "Caylee Anthony." He also stated he found a balloon that had "Happy Father's Day" in the woods. Mr. U. advised he appeared calm and understood Mr. U.'s concern for the safety of the students. Mr. W. told mr. U. he would move his wihite Mitsubishi Galant from the southside of Suburban Drive into the parking lot of the school. Mr. W. did so and returned back into the woods. Mr. U. notified Ms. R. of the incident.
Ms. R. called the OC Sheriff's Office non-emergency number and requested assistance. Road Patrol deputies responded and issued a trespass warning to Mr. W. at the request of Ms. R. While completing the trespass warning paperwork ... Mr. W. stated his girlfriend's mother is a psychic and told him about a vision regarding Caylee Anthony. He explained he decided to follow up on that vision, and stated he knew Casey Anthony when he was younger. Mr. W. was trespassed and has not been seen since.
This information is being documented for informational purposes and is forwarded to the Criminal Investigations Division. See attached sworn written statements.
From written police report:
The man said he reported the information to the police, but they didn't follow-up so he decided to investigate himself. He aplogized for his actions, said he didn't mean to scare anyone. He also mentioned he knew Casey Anthony when he was younger & they used to play together. The man was approx. 5'11" with a shaved head and several tattoos. His manner was calm.
[b]From statement of Assistant Principal Mr. U.
He (KW said he) tried to give this information to the police but "they wouldn't search."
The man was observed entering the woods at approximately 10:35 A.M. The individual was parked on the south side of Suburban off the road at the edge of the woodline. He rounded the corner of the fence on foot, walked along the edge of the woodline (behind the fence) for 15-20 yards and turned right and entered the woods.
