Poll: What was the duct tape used for?

Do you think the duct tape was used to silence Caylee during the murder, used to stage a kidnapping, or something else?

I think it was used to silence Caylee IMO KC could care less what pain Caylee felt. She just didnt want here screaming to draw attention.

I voted other because I don't believe Casey staged a kidnapping, or even really thought about it, until the day police were called.

I think the staging of the kidnapping was as far as her planning went, and she believed she could get away with the Zani story because people seemed to buy her lies all the time.

Good point.

I`m not sure about the duct tape, but voted staging.

I lean towards the idea that the kidnapping story didn't gel until the 15th of July when CA brought KC home from AL's. When their mom was out of the room, KC didn't tell LA that Caylee was kidnapped. She just said she hadn't seen her in 31 days. Near that point, CA asked "who took her?" and the kidnapping story evolved from there. JMO.

So IMHO I believe the duct tape got tangled on the head during the flooding and winds, or was placed there at the time of death, not as a part of any staged kidnap.

but here's what I don't get about the kidnapping theory: if you wanted people to believe your kid had been kidnapped, why wouldn't you act frantic with worry and call the police immediately? waiting 30 days and then being like "yeah, she's at disney world, cocoa beach, wherever" nonchalantly, is not a good way to make your case. or maybe she did, because I don't know in what world she's living in that she thinks her kid can go missing for 30 days and no one will ever notice.

Well, the longer no one realized Caylee was missing, the more fun KC could have, and she didn't want to draw attention to her missing daughter. Remember, she said "I've been trying to do my own investigation, which was stupid". It's not a good way to make her case, but she's been trying to convince everyone that "Caylee will be in danger" if she spills the beans. Sheesh, her parents bought it!

ITA, I think it was used to keep her quiet in case she woke up. I wonder if they do tests like this at the Body Farm, take some of the cadavers and put duct tape on them and leave some on dry land and put some in water to see what happens and to see what skin looks like after it has been under duct tape for a period of time. I would think the tape would preserve the skin to some extent.

I voted other. I think she used the duct tape to block body fluids from coming out of the mouth after she died.

To block body fluids the eyes, ears, nose and anus would also had to have been taped up. Just taping up the mouth would not have worked.

This is my theory for the time being as well. I know there are "other" orifices but yeah....This just made the most sense to me.

I wouldn't give Casey that much credit. She's not smart by any means.

IMHO, I don't think it takes any more brains to wrap the head with duct tape to block leaking fluids than it does to place the body in a trash bag and wrap that with duct tape, which rumor has as well. I think it is a very plausible explanation.

MHO is that KC put it there to either silence or suffocate Klee. (Silencing goes along with the dope and put in trunk theory.)

I've seen folks saying duct tape over the mouth might go along with a staged kidnap scenario, but why would Klee's babysitter of 2 years need to tape the baby's mouth shut to kidnap her?? Surely Klee would be used to being with her? KC even claimed to have received a very calm call phone call from Klee the day KC was arrested (another lie, but still shows her mindset I think).

And, the only reason she mentions such a phone call is to further distance herself from the evidence she knows was with Caylee....making sure she says the book Caylee was reading is the same one in the father's day video!

She used it to quiet Caylee during the crime of murder, right in her own bedroom.

(hope i get this quote thing right this time!?)

I think she used it to silence Caylee. Possibly to keep her from waking up and crying ahead of planned time between choroform administration and body dumping. i wonder if Caylee was still alive, but unconscious (I hope) when she was thrown in the swamp.

That way KC, in her twisted way, could tell herself she didn't actually kill Caylee. She only drugged her and threw her under water.

But that wouldn't explain the decomp in the trunk. I feel she killed Caylee and planned on blaming it on zanny.

I don't feel it was used to stop ( Gore ) bodily fluids. The other orafices would leak out as well.
