Brad Conway was interviewed on GMA very briefly--but I am still very surprised at one of his answers to a direct question about Casey. The question was something along the lines of "why is law enforcement NOT looking for anyone else--does that mean Casey is responsible?" and Brad Conway answered: "I believe there is someone else involved".
WOW. So--he was indicating that there was someone else BESIDES Casey involved (?!). Otherwise wouldn't he have said "Casey is innocent"? He did NOT say that. I am a little stunned.
Did you see this--did you take the above the same way I did?

I did take it that way. I do note that he said, "The question is whether involvement was minimal, or borders on conspiracy." (paraphrased)
I am waiting to see if JB responds to BC's assertions that KC will have to take the stand because of JB's strategy.
We've said all along that JB had made the decision that KC should not see her parents, and now we have confirmation.
I found Brad's interview to be of far more interest that the A's.

My impression was that Brad's words were carefully chosen and well aimed. He and the A's see the bus coming and are firing shots back to challenge JB. He all but came out and said that KC was somehow involved in the death of Caylee. Quite an about face for the A's. Yep, they see that big bus heading right for them! ITA that this was the most important interview of the three this morning. It was very calculated to send a message.

Timing of this specific interview is crucial, IMO. It is as if BC was saying, "Here we are a year later. Where are you going with this now, JB?"
The other point of the interview that I found to be intriguing is that when Brad listed the reasons he'd filed the motion to seal the autopsy report, he included this statement, "They also don't want to deal with speculation about what is and is not in the report."
Just me, but am I yet again wondering and speculating all the more about the report because of that statement.

I must be odd man out on the entire forum today.
While everyone else is interpreting Brad's statements to be all about the bus heading for the A's, based on this interview and past ones with the A's and JB, I still lean more towards the bus heading towards JG.
Recall that JB implied JG was a suspect during the last motions hearings? And on LKL, the A's again implied they had a suspect in mind?
I do think the bus might swerve to nick the A's, absolutely. But, I think in this interview BC is leaning towards the JG angle. MOO.
The only thing is all roads lead to KC as the killer.

Seriously, I am still somewhat shocked. I would have thought that by now, this strategy would have long since been dropped, at least by BC. I'll give him much credit that he is not envisioning a scenario that doesn't include some guilt on KC's part, but either he knows something we don't know via JB, (which would not necessarily make it true,) or BC is stating what his clients want him to state.
The thing is, he sounded convinced himself that there might be others involved.
"I think there's reason to believe that other people were involved. The question is what was their involvement? How deep was it? Was it minimal or was it actually bordering on conspiracy?" asked Conway.
Conway went on to say that he and his clients are trying to take control over the information that the public gets to see. They want to make sure Casey gets a fair trial.
I also take issue with the last. As JB does, so too is BC trying to usurp the Sunshine Law. At the beginning of the interview the editorial narrative states he is disappointed with the documents released by the State. Again, neither of these lawyers ever adds a clear statement to underline that the releases are by law. I respect that defense attorneys are just doing their jobs, but the continued omission of reference to the Sunshine Law irks me to no end.
It is such a weak attempt at a back-hand slap to the State, yet people who haven't followed the case like we have simply aren't aware of that.

Do any of you know off the top of your head, so I don't have to research for a long time, what the date was that JG quit the police force? I have always wondered if the reason was because he felt that he could not be a police officer after maybe, he assisted someone in disposing of a child's body? Just a theory I have often thought about.
However, IIRC, he did quit somewhere in late June, like the 22-27 range? I'm sure someone else will know this off the top of their head!
ugh, that would be bad timing, wouldn't it?
Still on the JG topic - did anyone ever figure out why he quit? didn't he start in Dec. '07? If so, was June when his 6 month probationary period was up? Maybe he wasn't doing well with his field training?
Potato you're not the odd man out, I agree with you
I do not believe that the bus is heading in the direction of the A's. Unfortunately JG is another matter...IMO the bus is heading his way.
From the moment Casey told her parents not to trust him back in July she showed us which way she was steering this bus.
"There are three kinds of intelligence: one kind understands things for itself, the other appreciates what others can understand, the third understands neither for itself nor through others. This first is excellent, the second good, and the third useless.
I could not believe my ears.....Am I right that this is the first official acknowledgement by the A's that KC is involved in Caylee's death?
I thought BC made it clear that he thinks JB's defense is going in the wrong direction..............what reason would he have for doing this in such a public forum? Nothing they do is by accident ya know.........
Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong.
Seems to me there really isn't any other person or people involved in the murder itself, it is just that he wants to start the bus veering off course.. keep the reports private so that there will be yet more off the wall speculation.. Spread the suspicion around as far as possible, and it would leave less guilt sitting on KC's head... probably less on the A's head for such things as (likely) cleaning the trunk ..(likely) keeping the location of the body a secret for a month or two before it was finally found....(possibly) moving or hiding the body..
If that report really cast any suspicion on JG or any other 'outside the family' people.. he would likely be insisting it be released as soon as possible. I find it hard to believe that any of the A's are all that concerned with protecting JG from suspicion.
I suspect that this interview was the most carefully planned of any of BC's to date. What were the goals?
- Confirmation that JB controls the jail visits and made the decision & that BC disagrees with this decision
- pressure directed to JB to let the A's see KC
- deflects criticisms that the A's haven't visited
- even though it is likely that KC agrees entirely with the decision, it puts the burden solely on JB. Thus, public might also muster further sympathy for KC, poor thing - her lawyer won't let her see her family
- Implied belief that KC does carry some guilt
- reality check for A's & defense both
- underlying message to plea?
- underlying message to KC?
- Implied additional involvement
- puts A's on a better public footing - "We just don't know AND there must be others involved, so of course we're standing firm because KC might not shoulder the biggest burden of guilt." (they're edging closer to guilt, but still a long way off of responsibility)
- outlines questions BC would be asking. Another prod to JB? Or further knowledge of JB's direction?
- Autopsy report
- I'm hung up on this, "what is in and IS NOT in the report"
- not sure why, but that has my noggin stewing over possibilities if I take it together with the conspiracy theory
- is there something they thought would be in the report, based on their knowledge, that wasn't discovered? (I'm confusing myself...)
Now, with baited breath I wait to see if JB has anything to say about this interview. Will he respond directly or indirectly? New lines drawn in the sand?
Wait!! The other person involved is Zanny, right? Or, has that fantasy been discarded for some other lie?
