Casey Anthony's Lawyers Want Charges Dropped
New Documents Released in Case Against Mother of Murdered Toddler Caylee Anthony
Oct. 2, 2009
The motions came after the state released over a thousand pages of new documents this week that show inconsistencies in FBI findings relating to the scientific evidence in the case. The defense and Casey's parents, George and Cindy Anthony, are calling the new information a major breakthrough and they're using it to claim that prosecutors can't prove first-degree murder was committed. Casey Anthony's attorney Todd Macaluso asked this week for the capital murder charge to be dismissed.

Jose Baez and Linda Kenney-Baden were on the Today Show, saying new evidence released by the state proves the prosecution doesn't have a real case against Casey.
"Of all the evidence that they have, nothing. The fibers that were on the duct tape do not connect her to the crime scene. Nothing, there's no finger print evidence. There's nothing that connects her to this crime scene," Kenney-Baden said.
On Good Morning America, another member of the defense, Todd Macaluso said the same thing.
"Not a single hair fiber, not a single fingerprint, not a single speck of DNA," Macaluso said.

"Specifically, the state cannot establish whether Caylee Anthony's death was accidental, natural, or the result of an intentional or negligent homicide," they said.
On "The Early Show" Friday, Todd Macaluso, a lawyer for Casey, said bluntly, "Casey Anthony is innocent, she will be proven innocent. The state has not produced any evidence whatsoever to prove their case. The case should be dismissed."
On "The Early Show", co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez asked Macaluso and fellow Casey Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez how they will "explain the fact that Casey did not report her daughter missing for a month, that she was out partying when Caylee was supposedly missing, and that she lied to investigators trying to help her find Caylee?"
Baez responded, "We feel that Casey has a very compelling reason for her actions, and we plan on laying them out at trial. That's the proper place for us to lay out a defense."

Was There Impression Of Child's Body in Casey's Car?
Attorneys Argue Against Evidence On 'Today"
POSTED: 11:08 am EDT October 2, 2009
UPDATED: 4:35 pm EDT October 2, 2009
Newly released e-mails between FBI lab analysts suggest they have a photograph taken of the stain in the trunk liner. Within the stain, they say an impression emerged they believe was a child's body in the fetal position.
Investigators also say they have hair and air-sample evidence of human decomposition from the trunk.
Defense attorney Richard Hornsby said evidence from her car alone suggests Anthony knows how Caylee died and what happened to her body.
"Casey never said it was stolen and when she abandoned it and her own parents go find it, there's smell of death," Hornsby said.
Baez said the truth about what happened will come out at trial -- if we ever get to that point.

UPDATED: WFTV Discovers Possible Duct Tape Link In Casey Case
Posted: 5:06 pm EDT October 2, 2009
Updated: 6:37 pm EDT October 2, 2009
Eyewitness News found the same rare type of tape that was found on Caylee's skull being used by the Anthony family on a Caylee Anthony poster.
With the debate over the duct tape evidence intensifying this week, Eyewitness News re-analyzed video that was taken in the months before Caylee's body was found.
The discovery could make it even more difficult for the defense to argue that Casey didn't put the tape over Caylee's mouth. The defense has really been trying to shoot down the duct tape evidence recently.
"If the defense tries to advance that, that it was one of the volunteers that took that tape, killed the child, put the tape over the child's face to frame Casey, that strains credibility and it will turn the jury off," WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said.
However, the video taken by Eyewitness News on July 20, 2008 just days after Casey's arrest and one month after Caylee Anthony disappeared, shows that the duct tape on the Anthonys' Caylee posters has the same unique markings as the duct tape on the Anthonys' gas can and the tape found over Caylee's mouth.

Casey Anthony: WFTV, WESH rebut defense team on evidence

The WFTV report was timely, impressive and attention-getting. Reporter Kathi Belich noted that the defense had tried to dismiss the duct-tape evidence. But she reported that the Henkel duct tape on a Caylee poster had the same distinctive markings -- a black oval logo, temperature specifications -- as tape found on the child's remains and on a gas can at the Anthony home.
WFTV legal analyst Bill Scheaffer asked: "What are the statistical chances that those three pieces of duct tape did not come from the same source roll, that roll belonging to the Anthonys?"
Sheaffer said those similarities will be obvious to a jury. Belich said WFTV had not received a response from the defense team about the station's video find.
"Hornsby said evidence from her car alone suggests Casey knows how Caylee died and what happened to her body," reporter Bob Kealing said.
Hornsby said: "Casey had the car. She never said it was stolen or anything like that. She abandoned it." And he added that Anthony's parents recognized "the smell of death" in the car.
In another report, Hornsby described Casey's "incriminating, bizarre" behavior that makes "it obvious she knows something about the post-death issue."
