Casey Anthony jailhouse letters: State Attorney's Office releases more than 5,000 pages

Besides the letters, the discovery includes transcripts of police interviews with potential witnesses and a few invoices from forensic experts hired by the state. Two expert entomologists will face off at the trial regarding their interpretation of the insect activity in the trunk of Anthony’s abandoned Pontiac Sunfire and around the skeletal remains of Caylee. As of last November, the state’s expert, Neal Haskell, has billed the State of Florida $25,551.25 for 101.5 hours of pre-trial work at $200 per hour.

“The only visit she’s had in more than three weeks is from a mitigation specialist who works for the defense,” WESH’s Bob Kealing reported. “Basically, it’s her job to go in, interview Casey repeatedly, construct a life story to where if she is convicted, it will help the defense argue for life instead of death.”
