I have faith. LE found something that we havn't seen regarding JT's statement, TAZ, or the timeline. He must be on the SA witness list for a reason and I believe the SA is too astute to risk the case on some flake looking for glory. JMO
I haven't read this entire thread, 'pgizing if this has been discussed.
This sighting is important, imo. And I think we will be seeing (no pun intended) more of these to come?
Think about all of the places KC might have shopped while Caylee was missing, and before.....
I'm sure LE has checked all purchases via receipts and cc and bank statements. LE had to have gone to these places and tried pulling video, questioned the employees that possibly could have been in contact with KC. And maybe even questioned folks who were in the stores and purchased items at the time KC did. There has to be more sightings like this one to come. Does LE do this type of thing? Contact people who would have been in the same place same time type of thing, by pulling customers information? Then said customer remembers, "yes! I WAS standing in the check out lane looking at the 100 different types of gum and this chick was in front of me in her hot shorts and I thought to myself, how I would like to get with that" OR " yeah, I bought lemonaide and the girl in front of me had the same type and I commented to her about how good this particular brand is and blah blah blah..".-you get what I'm saying? And I've heard how she likes to blab when given the chance-who knows?
I'm sure there are peeps out there that have "skellies" :iamashamed0005: in their closet and might have been afraid to come forward. Look at what has happens to any and everyone who has been mentioned in this case. OR maybe a someone has a light bulb moment.....it happens.
I have been going to the same G-store and Target for years now. I know some of the cashiers 'cause I'm there all the time picking up diapers or milk.... (they know my yougest is autistic and will give her a balloon- her favorite color without me asking)
CA went grocery shopping at the same Publix near her home or work - I don't exactly remember which one she mentioned (long time ago) but I'm thinking she might of had Caylee with her at times? Maybe she exchanged words with the cashier from time to time. Idle chit-chat. What could have been said? "I don't know why I keep buying these, they are just gonna go to waste, 'cause she hasn't been home to eat them......"
I dunno just a thought.
couldn't. agree. more.
I especially like your point about Casey shopping pre Caylee and Casey shopping post-Caylee. Casey is a creature of habit - and there were days and days and days where she would have had Caylee in tow at all her favorite shopping haunts. Then all of a sudden~ no Caylee. I wonder what said during some of that idle cashier chit chat...
When he says "Interior Wal Mart doors", perhaps he means she was coming out of one of the other businesses inside the Wal Mart? For instance, the Wal Mart near my house has a hair dresser, H&R Block, arcade, pretzel place, photographer, Subway, etc.
I agree, the way he worded things was strange, but I think he is just a juvenile-minded male who thought "Hey, maybe I could have a chance with her" and then decided against trying to make that effort in the Wal Mart that day. I think this is the reason he mentioned not wanting to get involved with another bad mom. I don't believe this affects his credibility at all.
Yes this may have been before the passing of bad checks at the Target... but Casey has been accused of using check from SP as well as using money/credit cards of Cindy's as well. Who knows how long that has been going on...
So I think Casey's questions about if the monitor would work with her laptop were in an attempt to find a reason why she could buy a monitor one day and return it the next - "sorry it didn't work with my computer..."
I think JT remembers her because of her "hotness" but ALSO because Casey was working him over. I'm sure she was turning on the Casey "charm" to see if she could get him to accept a check. Mom and Pop joints might be the perfect place for this kind of con because unlike "big box stores", they might be more willing to be flexible and therefore more likely to take her check. Also, Casey could possibly be more assured of having the store to herself so less people would see her there and act as witnesses to her bad check writing.
Casey was ALWAYS working some angle or another. I can easily see her "prepping" situations like this all the time, getting a feel for what might work, what she might be able to get away with, and who she might be able to exploit. I think she saw the computer store as a possible source of easy cash...
I'm wondering if some one in the Orlando area could do me a favor? Could you drive to this Walmart and check out the front doors? I looked this walmart up and it is a supercenter. I live in podunk Oklahoma and our supercenter even has automatic doors. I can't think of the last time I walked into ANY walmart that didn't have automatic doors. It's going to truly blow me away if a supercenter in Orlando still has manual doors.
I've got my salt and my hat ready if you come back and tell me they have manual doors.
About the automatic/manual doors ....... I would think it would be a fire code safety issue that stores have to have a manual exit in the event of fire or for some reason for electric failure. I remember one winter when our local Wally's World had a store wide electric failure. The emergency lights went on, but the cash registers didn't work. Talk about some upset folks standing in line. This store does have a manual door, single compared to the double automatic door. And the Targee' next to it also have automatic/manual (single) doors. Both have these types of doors for the entrance and exit.
I was @ my local Walmart Super Center yesterday and the door on one side going out was not working and the greeter said they had been having trouble with it all week so yes I did manually open it so maybe that was the case that day with Casey and Caylee
Yeah, and maybe this guy speculates on whether he should get in a relationship with every single woman that crosses his path. This entire statement is freaky and gives me the willies.
Just wanted to say our Walmart has both automatic and manual stationary doors. The automatic doors are in the center of the entrance, while the manually open doors are on the sides...this is where all the games & gumball machines are. Then there's another set of doors right when you walk into the actual store. There are 2 on both sides. The left is the entrance & right is the exit. Each side has an automatic door for handicap access and a manual door for anybody else. All of the handicap doors have a button that can be pressed in case a person doesn't weigh enough for the automatic door to open...this button will make the door open.
I like this guy cuz he is full of warts and not all that slick. We've taken a couple of badly phrased sentences, probably made in summation after several verbal interviews, and turned this guy into a perv. Frankly I'm more worried about the slick witness types in PowerPoint presentation mode. Let's face it, I doubt any of us would be all that impressed with men who found her wildly attractive or interesting - they don't strike me as all that street smart if they couldn't see what a hot mess she was. And most women are not clouded by testosterone. I'm just hoping his story has been vetted enough that they might be able to use him - even if he is an idiot horndog - to narrow the window of time on the 16th.
"Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices" - Voltaire
You guys are brutal. Men & women are wired differently. Rewatch Billy Crystal explaining this to Meg Ryan in "Harry met Sally". He explains it pretty succinctly.
I like cecybeans description of, "full of warts" for JT, and keying off of, "some badly phrased sentences" to draw character conclusions. IMHO, JT's not filtering out anything in his statement. I call it candor...and appreciate it for what it is.
Also hafta remark about bein', "more worried about the slick witness typics in Powerpoint presentation mode." And to tie the two points together - IRL I'd pretty squarely fall in the PowerPoint crowd...and I'm just filtering out my observations 'bout a woman being attractive in my day-to-day interactions. I can't stay employed if I say what I'm thinking on the subject - either to or about the opposite sex...it would be immediately career limiting & would be immediatley job ending in most cases. So...I learned to adapt, evolve...shut up and keep my thoughts to myself...lest I suffer the same treatment leveled against JT here in our example on WS. Call it civility...decency...sure. But don't kid yourself to think that just 'cause a man's not making these comments out loud that they're not mixed into his thoughts.
JT just didn't have his filters turned on when he wrote his statement. And, IMHO, considering the import of the situation, I'd rather get his raw thoughts & observations on the events. It helps me undertand his account better. And it seems to me he stopped far short of being crude.

I agree 100% Bond, men are wired differently and I also appreciate the honesty of the witness.
A male friend of mine puts it this way "Men are Pigs".
No comment from me.
Some of us asked dave to go over to that Wal-Mart to take some photos.

I’m going to take a ride over to Walmart today with my camera.
Tulessa // September 30, 2009 at 4:33 pm
Dave, let us know if that wal mart has manual doors. TYIA!
Marinade Dave // September 30, 2009 at 4:47 pm
Yes and no, Tulessa. The main doors do not open in or out. They slide parallel to the building. In other words, sideways, and they are activated by sensors. There are 2 main entries, one in front of the grocery store section and the other in front of the department store section. The 2 areas are not separated once inside. There are 2 doors along the side (or large foyer) areas, one for each entrance. Those doors open in an outward direction. The video footage will show this.
First, I went to the computer store, but the owner was not there. I spoke to one employee and he preferred that I not shoot any video footage inside without the owner’s approval. I honored that request and decided not to shoot the storefront, either, until I had an opportunity to talk to him. After I do, I will edit the pieces together and post it as one video.
Hope this helps.
JT, being a typical male, had a typical reaction!! KC was probably pizzed JT noticed Caylee - cause homegirl was probably working it!!! Once again Caylee had stolen her spotlight! KC morphs into "spiteful b****" and well we know the rest of the story!!
"It's time to tell the story of a little girl named Caylee" Linda Drane Burdick
The future has many names: for the fearful it's the unknown, for the reckless it's the adventure, for the pessimists it's the unattainable. For the brave, it is opportunity.
I do not agree that it's candor. I believe it is "too much information". Much like KC and Cindy when they get on a lying spurt. The man is recalling two brief encounters (one he didn't even interact with her for pete's sake) and he's recalling that he's considering he didn't need to get involved with a heartless woman? what she was wearing? interpretations of reactions? an analysis of Caylee's expression? Right.
Not to mention the fact that it hasn't been a tightly held secret that the 16th of June is the suspected death date and it took him a year to figure out that seeing Caylee and KC at noon on that date MIGHT be important? It's convenient that this year of him not realizing that seeing a child on the last day of her life might be important to a nationally covered murder trial garanteed that no surveillance video could back his story.
Give me a break.

Exactly! and the hinkiness just goes on and on with every line. This isn't one or two statements taken out of contest. The whole thing smells like last week's fish!Originally Posted by Patty G View Post
My "hinky" meter went off when I read that "allegedly" Caylee was about 10 feet behind Casey and Caylee had to push the door open herself. The automatic doors stay open for quite a while.
If this person spotted Caylee having to open the door herself, why the heck didn't he help Caylee with the door? What are the chances that it was only Casey and Caylee exiting out of Wal-Mart at that time.
He also wonders "why" the child was not in school or daycare. Caylee was 2 1/2 years old at that time, why would he think of "school or daycare". School gets out the first week of June in Florida. This sighting was the week after school closed for the summer.
Of course the reason he didn't help a little girl get a door open is because he was being reflective of his life and how not getting involved with a heartless b**** wouldn't fit well at the moment.
