1100 pages of evidence relaesed - includes duct tape results
Sources: Mother's Fingerprints Not Found On Tape Over Caylee's Skull
Slain Tot's Mom Remains Jailed On Murder Charge

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Sources told Local 6 News Monday that no fingerprints were located on the duct tape found wrapped around the skull of Caylee Anthony.
Hundreds of pages of additional documents are expected to be released in the case against the slain toddler's mother, Casey Anthony, as early as Tuesday. Anthony, 22, remains jailed on first-degree murder charges in her daughter's death.
Caylee's remains were discovered in December in a wooded lot near the home she shared with her mother and grandparents. The girl's skull was wrapped in duct tape, and sources told Local 6 News that sheriff's investigators headed to the Anthony house the day the discovery was make, looking for evidence that might link Casey Anthony or items in the house to the crime scene.
Sources said the soon-to-be released documents will show that investigators never found a duct tape roll at the home but did find a similar piece of tape on a gasoline can in the house. Sources also told Local 6 News that FBI lab tests reveal no fingerprints were found on the duct tape.
Celebrity bounty hunter Leonard Padilla, who has been involved with the case since he bailed Casey Anthony out of jail, claimed the opposite last week on national TV. A tabloid magazine also reported that Casey Anthony's fingerprints were found on the tape.
Sources inside Casey Anthony's defense team said they are "sick of Padilla's lies" and want him to "go away."

"Bombshell" Casey Anthony Evidence Expected To Be Released
Tuesday, February 17, 2009 – updated: 6:16 pm EST February 17, 2009
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- As early as Wednesday, another stack of evidence is due out in the case against Casey Anthony, but Eyewitness News has an idea of what the documents will reveal this time.
The 500 pages to be released include investigators' reports from the scene where Caylee's remains were found, the lists of all the property taken from the Anthonys' home and FBI reports on the evidence. They've been characterized as "bombshell" reports. Detectives are still investigating whether there are discernible fingerprints on the duct tape that was stretched across Caylee's mouth by the killer. There is no answer to that question at this point.
Monday, another 1,100 pages of evidence was handed over to the defense team, including transcripts of statements witnesses gave to investigators and there's more computer evidence in the case that will go public sometime soon. Eyewitness News has learned the new evidence builds a stronger case against the one who should have been Caylee's fiercest protector, her mother.

Updated: State Releases New Evidence To Anthony's Defense Team
Evidence Includes Results Of Duct Tape Tests

ORLANDO, Fla. -- ORLANDO, Fla. -- Attorney Brad Conway said Tuesday he will try to prepare the Anthony family for whatever news comes out of 1,100 pages of evidence released this week.
Conway said he will review the documents, which are now in the hands of Casey Anthony’s attorneys.
“We need to see what the results say,” said Conway, who represents Casey Anthony’s parents, Cindy and George Anthony. According to a source close to the investigation, test results from the FBI crime lab on the duct tape found on slain toddler Caylee Anthony's skull are in that new batch of evidence.
A spokeswoman with the state attorney's office told WESH 2 she does not plan to release this new evidence released to the public until at least midweek. Orlando defense attorney Richard Hornsby said the duct tape evidence brings the possibility of the death penalty back in to play. Hornsby said it may force Anthony’s defense attorney, Jose Baez, to "put Casey on the stand" or "consider a plea bargain."

Casey Anthony case: What about the duct tape and fingerprints?

Who has this part of the Caylee Anthony story right?
WESH-Channel 2 was trumpeting that it was first to report that new evidence to be released this week includes FBI lab tests on duct tape found over Caylee's mouth.
Are mom Casey Anthony's fingerprints on the tape?
In a report Monday, WESH suggested they are.
WKMG-Channel 6 said no at noon today.
This evening, WESH's Bob Kealing said, "Our sources are telling us that the results on the duct tape especially are complicated and open to interpretation. We'll hopefully see what that means in the morning."
Reporters are waiting to look at more than a thousand pages of evidence in the case against Casey Anthony, who is charged with Caylee's murder.
In an earlier report, Kealing quoted a source: "This is not going to be good news for the defense."
That statement is short on specifics, Brad Conway, attorney for George and Cindy Anthony, told WESH.
Kathi Belich of WFTV-Channel 9 gave a preview of the 1,100 pages of documents to be released. "We're told the new evidence builds a stronger case against the one who should have been Caylee's fiercest protector: her mother," Belich said.
