    6 4 11 SAT-Day 10

    9:00 Judge opens
    9:01: Baez objects to the Expert Witness from FBI, Karen Lowe as to her being qualified and the reliability of the scientific evidence
    9:03 Judge tells them we’re not having a ‘mini’frye hearing’
    This has already been discussed. The Prosec has to LAY a PREDICATE as to witness qualifications so if they don’t do that, then you could object. DENIED for time being
    9:09 Jury walks in
    9:11 Karen K. Lowe- FBI Trace Evidence Expert Witness-worked for 15 yr w/FBI and gives education background.
    9:15 BAEZ asks- ‘this is 1st time you’ve testified
    9:15 immediate side bar after this question
    9:17 Baez returns – questions training – hair portion of training was 6 months
    9:19 Baea done – Judge announces she is now accepted as Expert Witness
    9:19 Prosec has her explain how long have studies been done-she says since 1700’s and refined in 1930 something.
    Witness describes photos of variety hairs. Both from a living person to a deceased indicidual-visual differences- these are NOT the actual pics of evidence,Caylee’s hair
    9:59 Baez cross examines
    10:02 side bar
    10:05 RECESS
    10:26 Judge returns- Defense objecting to the scientific studies and methodology.
    10:32 Ms Lowe returns to stand – Jury not in courtroom
    10:33 Judge says let’s ‘proffer’ this –she will explain methodology & court will decide if scientifc studies are accepted & valid beyond the scientific community
    BAEZ asks questions first asking her questions about case histories in the law books.
    10:39 Judge tells Baez ‘ we are NOT going to litigate some other case,. “ Don’t even go there” you may question HER methods etc’
    10:42 Ashton remarks: objects – says Jose ‘bolsters’
    10:44 Judge tells Baez again can not discuss other cases when questioning witness
    10:46 Jury returns
    10:47 Baez resume questioning- goes after all reports to clarify only ONE hair had banding from CAR. Only ‘visual’ opinion is applied when looking at banding. Other Trace Evidence party in lab re-checks and agrees.
    11:13 objection by Prosec- side bar Baez was trying to say the reason they aren’t showing the actual hair pic is because the banding was not where he understands the banding would likely be.
    11:15 Sustained – Judge tells him to rephrase question- Prosec says the actual pic of hair has not been submitted but willing to provide the Defense with if they want it.
    11:17 – keeps talking about a photo but she says the pic would have to be looked at thru microscope to define where banding is from root- distance – you would not be able to say how the characteristics have changes in deceased hair by photo. Brings up she failed her 2000 proficiency test 1st time she ever took test….11 yrs ago
    11:21 objection by Prosec- relevancy. Baez was asking , “ after you did your report in 2008, didn’t your lab do another study on methods or???
    11:25 Jury sent out of room
    11:25 Proffering testimony- OBJECTION will be sustained-it’s beyond the scope of direct examine
    11:27 RECESS for everyone/jury already out of room
    11:33 Jury returns
    11:34 Baez to continue – asking if she attended meetings to reinforce her findings ? Answer NO. If TISSUE is present, then can do nuclear testing. No tissue was present so there could not be a nuclear test. She decides if hair would go to nuclear or micro testing. Identification can be made only IF DNA can be extracted
    Baez: trying to make point banded hair may be secondary (transferred from someone else onto the hair)
    11:42 Prosec questioning- micro dna would identify who owns hair. Hair with banding was NOT naturally shed which would have hardening near root and end would look different. ‘Did you eliminate the mother” YES, was NOT consistent with hair from KC.
    11:48 Baez re cross- examine 11:49 Witness dismissed
    11:51 Mike Vicent SWORN IN – OC Asst Superv of Crime Scene Unit 9 yrs-21 yrs in Phila. Police Dept., over 30 crime scene schools- supervises Gerado Bloise- assisted w/taking samples from vehicles- collected stain samples for blood –came out negative…also collected air samples. -Process samples: Univy of FL used a large syringe and inserts into the trunk by way of small opening in trunk Air from syringe is put in a Kevlar bag.

    8/1 collected 2-gas cans from A’s home-swabbed metal can for dna & looked for fingerprints(not successful fingerpts)Returned metal can to Cindy8/13.
    12:29 Baez cross examine
    Trash received 7/16 * taken to a ‘dry room’‘. When sampled air, trash was in the dry room. Put in dry room for either storage or testing. Baez:IF trash was WET, it would smell different. On 29th, stored in brown cardboard box. It was not wet.
    Gas can had no gas. Baez asking if you can tell if it had been wiped down. Did he think so? It did NOT appear to be wiped down
    12:48 Prosec redirects questioning.. He picked up can himself w/gloves, A’s did not touch. Car was stored in crime garage. Trash bag: trash was stored separately from the garage.

    This thread is purely for recording the court room activity TIMES, witness names etc.

    I hope some members watching the Trial are able to take TIMED notes today.

    in example:
    9:01 Dr Vass SWORN IN - scientist/reseacher Oakridge Lab- gives his bkgnd info, describes decomp process
    9:44 Defense objection (if you can, note what the objection was)
    9:44 side bar w/ Judge
    9:53 Ashton proceeds
    10:01 Judge accepts him as Expert Witness - Defense objects for the record
    10:02 Ashton proceeds, asks about hearing from Yuri Melich
    10:03 Ashton gives him taped evidence box, Vass recognizes, Ashton begins to open-Baez asks to be beside him as he opens
    10:05 Vass recognizes can inside box, Defense objects to sugmitting can into evidence
    10:06 side bar
    10:10 Judge accepts in to evidence

    Please if you can, post whenever you have the opportunity throughout the proceedings today (each day). Multiple posts are perfectly fine, even if it's a single incident during the course of the day.

    Below is a 24/7 CLOCK link that opens up directly to REAL TIME in Orlando, FL

    This way, if something striking happens at any given moment (ie: KC crys, looks angry, Baez flustered, reprimand by Judge), we can utilize the TIME you provided for looking into the planetary Transits during the noted action/your observation. If the astrological findings are remarkable, we'll post it over in Caylee's Astro thread.

    Thanks much! We appreciate your assistance.

    adding to WATCHING's post above. ( THANKS ! )

    3:13 Baez continues, trunk was sprayed with BleuStar/luminol like before he got samples. YES. They did get a listing of chemical makeup of BlueStar and was not anything of any significance that would cause the chemistry collected. Same thing with Febreeze.
    Baez talks about paper towels collected. Vass, they had fatty ‘acids’ on them…associated with decomp. Baez asking if you could find the same in a hamburger & Vass says says burger would have to be RAW.
    3:29 side bar due to Prosec objection

    3:38 Jury dismissed- has brief matter he has to take up
    3:39 Baez may go forward with a proffer of Vass
    4:04 Baez asking if Vass was offered million dollars? Objection/ sustained
    4:05 Baez say ‘ you attempted to put leashes on flies” Objection, sustained
    4:06 Baez offensive questioning, multiple objections, all sustained.
    4:07 smell of human decomp is unique. Asking about stmt Vass made to Knoxville newspaper, and Baez said 'are you saying decomp is like rotting potato' and Vass says yes, similar BUT completely different chemical composition.
    4:11 Vass tells Baez he is twisting the understanding of the controls
    4:14 Baez asking if he would consider himself more of an ‘explorer’ then a scientist? Vass: I am paid to think outside of the box.
    4:17 Ashton cross examines: Vass does not feel as though he has financial interest in case, NO, calls Baez depo ‘ the inquisitions’(haha), Says he has no clue how patents etc would ever be involved, never interested him.
    Control carpet: Vass wanted to make carpet comparison with a sample from the trunk of a non-related car subject to the worst conditions..
    What item had the highest concentration ? “ the carpet from Sunfire’
    Vass did NOT find decomp chemistry in any of the remnants found in trash or anything in trash because if there was any meat/live food product, the meat HAS to be raw in order to come up with similar chemistry of decomp.

    4:33 Vass may be excused, members of jury may stretch while attnys have side bar
    4:36 Judge, next witness will take more then 25 minutes so we’ll stop for today.
    4:37 Excuses Jury.

    4:38 NO JURY – Ashton, defense has served a subpoena to force Vass to present his database and Ashton explains something about ‘interstate, he moves to quash their motion.
    4:40 Defense is now withdrawing subpoena..
    4:41 RECESS until 9AM Tues

    I'm still watching the CNN live feed and using Fifth's Orlando time clock. I will use the same thing each day unless I note otherwise. :) I've noticed today there is a significant delay in time behind the CNN live feed for the WFTV feed. I'm using that feed only to watch KC's reactions. I'm not reporting any times from it (WFTV).

    I keep on my computer w/ speakers on. It covers the trial without any interruptions, no commercials. good sound. It's an affiliate station of

    Today wdbo sounds like it's about 4 sec ahead of the CNN/HLN TV transmission.
    Now I don't know if the TV has a delay because of the different area cable services or what. At any given time, I would think there's always going to be some kind of delay either by the radio live stream or the TV coverage.

    Whatever you are getting is about as near perfect as possible,so don't worry about the very brief 20-30-40 sec delay. We're just happy someone is able to help out.

    WatchinKy, YOU'VE BEEN TERRIFIC !!
    and I don't want to leave out ZOE who has been tracking since the beginning as well.

    We all have our responsibilities outside of WS, so whenever anyone can jump in, great, however short or long a period of coverage.

    11:37 Baez shows pic- draws her attention to duck tape area. Asks to draw circle around duck tape. 'Is it fair to say tape is somewhat in the air in this photo?' It appears it could be.

    11:47 Excused subject to recall.
    11:48 Judge asks attny to approach bench-no court recorder needed

    11:59 pic – closer to scene and circles area of concern-flash used in pic- the area heavily overgrown, dark, raining, camera flash helped

    11:59 RECESS for lunch until 1:30

    (IMO: KC spent more time squeezing & wiping nostrils. Rubbed under eyes some, no tears, kept head down almost whole time)

    1:30 Judge returns -return witness to stand and then bring in Jury
    1:31 Steve Hanson returns to stand
    1:33 Ashton continues – says heavily overgrown & undergrown,, rotten log, a lot of under growth, took a while to pick up, someone had to point out the skull
    1:34 pic shown- some of the area had been cleared. This pic, he’s looking across the log and saw skull on left hand side and other items on right just a little behind skull. At that point, he did not see duct tape(was not close up) appeared to be duct tape on the skull upon closer investigation.. Add’l pics were taken and they started to clear out overgrowth so they could see the skull better-took 3-4hours to clear
    1:37 pic scene with vines cleared away and log is now removed. Only things above the items were cleared and this pic shows everything in the same position as when they arrived
    1:39 pic close up of skull. After vines removed, no ground was disturbed & not moved. When he took pic, taken from opposite side of other pics. Other vantage points you could not see the front of skull wherein this pic, he was able to take pic of front of skull 2.5 ft from above it.. Sees duck tape, could not tell at that point if more then 1 piece of duck tape. Difficult to tell because of the hair matt and plant material there(had not removed anything yet), takes pics ach move, had to clear undergrowth to see skull & tape properly. Hair mat: thought was probably hair. Matter on skull appears to be hair also.
    1:44 pic depicts relationship of skull, the bags, etc The items in photo:his responsibility describes how the scene looks-those pertinent things to understand as it releates of the ‘remains.’. Custody of remains: medical ex office has authority over remains. They thought possibility were in the bag. Because they thought other remains may be in bag, he had control over the bags
    1:47 pic–skull in relationship to the bag SKULL position: skull seemed to be imbedded in vines and leaves. Debris line around skull: went around skull at about eye socket level going around the head. Skull was angeled. Method of how to remove the skull&tape together-was discussed with several people-would remove as large an area from around and under skull. Collet large portion of area including skull(not just lift skull alone)
    1:51 pic of him picking up skull and entire pile of debris and skull into a bag. Went 6-8 inches around skull to preserve debris around it, trying to keep all together.
    Collected other items: canvas bag & plastic bag(may have had bones in it-did not know at that time) they were taken as a unit. and they found long bones in close proximity-all placed evidence bags. Also found shorts, large piece of cloth turned out to be blanket.
    When arrived @ Med Ex office, turned over to another medical examiner (Dr. Shultz-anthropologist at Med Ex office). For next few days, he teturned there and they collected other items found in woods, he would sign for each of the items found. He himself took everything back to Med Ex office. Last trip to Med Ex office with items collected was 12/17.
    1:59 Cheney Mason cross: shows pic and asks about 2 things he sees. One looks like a machette . He did not know who used machete or how it got there. Some clearing somebody had cut a path through some of the underbrush in the path and that’s how he found it. Several CSI were there when he arrived. Asks about rotted log: beside remains, He’s the one who removed the log for better visualization. Asking about another pic: Mason is asking if tape is laying on ground. Witness says it appears part is on the ground. Asks if tape was measured at scene-were any scales used to measure the evidence, NO. Mason: ‘ you said embedded? Answer-ground cover was embedded in vegetation. Did you know IF anybody had moved skull. No first hand knowledge if somebody had moved it before he arrived. Primary reason he collected everything around skull was so he didn’t move duck tape from position he found it in. When he moved the whole area ‘it could have moved the tape’. When items brought back, someone else reassembles the collection. The rotted log: did not photograph the log while he was moving it, he pushed it off to the left side away from the evidence field. He has looked all the photos only HE took, not photos others took. Did not see a white board Cheney is implying was on the log.
    2:13 Med Ex investg excused
    KC raises head now that he’s dismissed. Kept head down throughout questioning

    2:14 Dr. Gary Utz SWORN IN – Chief Deputy Med Ex for OC-Primary foucs Forensic pathology. Dr. G asked him to take charge of case because she was gong out of town until she returned. Dr. Hanson would report to him and bring back items and he would examine and then give some of the items to FBI agent to take back to FBI lab. 1st thing he saw was a large bag small bones, fabric, another bag has skull w/ tape.
    2:18 pic 1st photo taken at med ex office. 2 plastic garbage bags with yellow ties mixed with leaf litter & debris and a leg bone. Off white object: fabric laundry bag, each item was removed in lab and photographed separately..
    2:21 pic of skull and tape with leaf and debris had been brought to office and photographed there. Looking human skull facing the observer and is upright. In front of skull are several pieces silver gray colored tape and hair extending over the top of skull.
    KC head down
    2:22 pic- skull again and photographed from directly above. The items that appear to flow down the sides of skull= hair. Hair mat: partially can be seen
    2:24 pic - skull from side:R side and back of skull, you can see multi hair over top of skull and good pic of mat of hair at bottom of skull and toward the side, you can see the tape. Tape appears to come around to the side.
    2:25 pic – skull from the rear and L side. Several adherent leave & twigs obscuring view but you can see hair mat. Object in hair mat: appear to be plant roots.
    2:27 pic of either himself or Dr, Shultz supporting/cradle skull so that top of skull is being held up. Looking at skull face on, can see eye sockets and you can see hair partially covering eye sockets and below that is the tape; Ashton is pointing to tape: pieces of tape were ATTACHED TO EACH OTHER, he thinks three.
    2:30 pic skull- the angle- skull is tilted so bottom is upward toward camera. Show mandible/bottom of jawbone, also portion of the tape, around bottom of skull is hair, plant roots and leaves.. The mandible stays in place=’, That’s unusual, usually this time in decomp the mandible will detach. Caylee’s mandible stayed attached because of the hair mat & tape and ingrown plant roots that help kept it together. Tape was no longer adhesive and small portions held hair and part was attached to the mandible. (very small part of the fabric of the tape still had little adhesive) that stuck to the mandible. Roots had grown through.
    2:34 pic skull with the mandible and tape removed and are looking at the upper jaw . He did remove mandible, once he removed the tape attached, the mandible was easy to remove. He never has seen a mandible attached to skull in skeletonized remains. Skull was sitting on debris when delivered to him
    2:37 pic portion of examine of skull: skull is tilted down on left side and we see right side of lower mandible. Lifting the tape to show the fabric backing of the tape is partially attached to the mandible. Indicated there were multiple layers of tape. You can see the strand fibers off the tape on the mandible/adhering to it & mixed in with that is plant roots.
    2:40 pic tape after it was removed. We see pic. You can see much of the tape fabric backing has been separated from the tape itself. Tape was given to FBI
    2:42 pic close up photo of emblem on the tape(mfg)
    2:43 pic – fabric laundry bag
    2:44 pic- same laundry bag
    2:46 pic interior of laundry bag- shows label/brand, 2 handles. Was anything in the bag? Items were removed late from interior
    2:47 pic- photo of label/mfg of bag & another pic of other side of label.
    2:48 pic blk trash bag
    2:50 pic blk bag again- both bags had multiple tears in them.
    2:51 pic knot
    2:54 pic- item of clothing-shorts
    2:54 RECESS until 3:15
    (note KC keeps head down whole time, wraps her overcoat duster around her completely, covers hands completely with sleeve fabric. Her laptop was purposely removed from in front of her so the Jury could watch her ‘emote’…. / more like act)

    In the courtroom, Friday, June 10, 2011: (I have a lot of commentary today...I hope that's ok :angel:)

    8:53:40 am - All of the attorneys leave the courtroom. There are a lot of guards around.
    8:57:24 am - The prosecutors are back in the courtroom.

    9:01:11 am - KC enters the courtroom.
    9:03:16 am - The judge enters the courtroom.
    9:03:49 am - The judge states to return the witness from yesterday to the stand before the jury returns. His honor is giving instructions to the courtroom audience that there is to be no facial expressions, outbursts, etc. Anyone doing so will be ejected from the courtroom immediately and/or be held in contempt.
    9:04:33 am - The jury returns.
    9:05:18 am - The SA (Mr. Ashton) begins examination. Reviewing crime scene photos again today.
    9:14:35 am - The SA finishes exam.
    9:14:46 am - The defense (Cheney Mason) starts cross-exam.
    9:31:06 am - The SA (Mr. Ashton) begins re-direct exam.
    9:32:06 am - The SA finishes exam.
    9:32:22 am - The witness is excused.
    9:32:36 am - The judge states the SA may call their next witness.
    9:33:11 am - The next witness (John Schultz - Asst. Professor of Anthropology and specializes in Forensic Anthropology) enters the courtroom.
    9:33:23 am - The witness is sworn in.
    9:33:48 am - The SA (Mr. Ashton) begins direct exam.

    KC is attentive at times, but "appears" to be having a hard time again today. Lots of deep breaths, looking down, looks angry at times. Keeps dabbing eyes with the same tissue. The tissue looks dry.

    10:02 am - The witness is describing the roots growing through the bones (vertebrae).
    10:06:40 am - KC is crying as witness describes animals chewing on Caylee's bones. Dorothy Simms has her arm around KC and is hugging KC close. KC has her head on D. Simms shoulder. KC appears to be really sobbing.

    10:16:20 am - Recess until 10:35 am.

    10:37:13 am - KC returns to the courtroom with a BIG wad of tissues.
    10:37:53 am - Let the record reflect the presence of the defendant and the attorneys.
    10:38:04 am - The jury returns.
    10:38:58 am - The SA (Mr. Aston) resumes direct exam.

    There is a lot of graphic testimony today. The witness describes where all of the bones were found and that they were scattered. IMO, hearing all of this today makes all of this even more real. It's heartbreaking to think a "mother" could dispose of her child like trash. This testimony has to be affecting the jury...especially those with little ones.

    11:01:01 am - Sidebar.
    11:04:03 am - Sidebar is over.
    11:04:48 am - The witness is accepted as an expert.
    11:08:36 am - The witness states that in his opinion, Caylee's remains could have been in that location for 6 months based on plant growth, etc. The bones were "dry" bone marrow, decomp residue or decomp odor. There were leaves covering some of the bones indicating there were there before Fall.
    11:09:22 am - The SA finishes direct exam.
    11:09:32 am - The defense (C. Mason) begins cross-exam.

    KC is still very emotional at this time.

    11:18:30 am - The defense finishes cross-exam.
    11:18:37 am - The SA (Mr. Ashton) begins re-direct exam.

    KC still has her head down. IMO, she should be made to look at all of the photos.

    11:23:56 am - The witness is excused.
    11:25:16 am - Dr. G (Chief Medical Examiner) enters the courtroom.
    11:25:27 am - Dr. G is sworn in.
    11:25:57 am - Dr. G is stating her credentials, very impressive. KC is interested and is paying attention to Dr. G's credentials and testimony. She is looking at Dr. G.
    11:33:38 am - Dr. G is testifying about Caylee's hair mat that was found. She's discussing that roots have grown through the hair mat. Some of the courtroom audience has gaping mouths as if in disbelief. Pictures were also shown of Caylee's Winnie the Pooh blanket with the plant root growth on the back side. Very damning evidence IMO.

    Court is in recess until 1:30 pm.

    I really have mixed emotions about KC today. Part of me feels sorry for her because I think this really is hard for her. Reality is hitting her hard, smack in the face. She's finally having to face what she's done. Another part of me just despises her to no end. If she hadn't done this in the first place, we wouldn't be here today. She has lived in a fantasy world for so long and now her fantasy has ended and the real world has begun. JMO.

    Justice for Caylee :smiliescale:

    This is totally off topic, but I just love the way his honor pops his head into the courtroom to look around before he officially comes in for court. He's so cute!!

    Friday, June 10, 2011- Day 15

    1:45 KC returns
    1:45 Jury returning
    1:46 Mr. Ashton you may continue-
    Shows laundry bag pkg , blanket pkg, body bag w/vegetation pkg, tied blk plastic bag pkg, untied plastic bag found w/remains pkg, shorts pkg, clothing the letters&stitching pkg, hair mat pkg,
    1:52 Ashton resumes, concepts and cause of manner of death- classification of death based on all info available(scene, their findings,medical). In this case –opinion= HOMICIDE.Based on 1. observational studies child is not reported immediately, that’s something they look to as foul play. 2. body was hidden-childs body hidden in a field & often in closed containers (observational systematic studies) 3. the duct tape being located on face-no reason to put duct tape on face after they die.
    How does concept differ from manner: Specific injury or disease that causes death. -
    Were any objects found w/body capable of causing death: duct tape if over mouth or nose, suffocation w/plastic bag.. Made aware of chloroform in case and yes, child exposed to chloroform could die.
    Cannot tell what caused her death, because cannot say the ‘means.’ Bones did not show anti mortem signs.
    1:59 Cheney Mason crosses. Asking her if aware of case prior to body being found. Did know there was a lot of speculation about case. She was hoping different jurisdiction then her jurisdiction. Amongst various things she had known prior: question of chloroform? YES, one of the possibilities to examine. She brought in a toxicologist who she knew dealt with bones &sent him bone fragment of L femur. Look for chloroform and volatile chemicals. He only checked volatile, the results were negative.
    Was she present when Dr. Spitz came? OBJECTION
    2:04 side bar
    2:07 Dr G was informed by her office manager there was a request by JoseB to have someone(Dr. Spitz?) watch –she said she would preserve everything and make available when they are complete.
    2:09 asking about Dr. Goldberger, not a med doc, he’s a Phd. Volariles tested bones, hair and soil that fell out of hair, he tested bone and scrapping from marrow and washings they did from cranial cavity, looking for xanax = NEGATIVE.
    Cranial wash, she did not cut open cranium. No anti mortem trauma, but could see animal trauma.
    2:12 If he understands her testimony- despite what investgs said, the expert persons, there is no evidence the MEANS of homicide & that was not determined. The circumstances only were used to determine Homicide. She does not take what media says into her determination.
    2:16 That is the ONLY conclusion. Circumstance Systematical observational studies –every death she investigates uses the systematic observations=scientific studies. The preponderance of evidence and no other logical reasons for the condition. There is NO REASON not to report to authorities.
    What if somebody finds a drowned body, absolutely deceased: she says even if body is stiff, people would call 911.
    She says manner of death could not be determined but the means were based on circumstantial evidence and the studies.
    2:20 Ashton up- attempted keep body in same condition as when recvd because she was aware of a request for 2nd autopsy by Defense.
    2:23 Dr. G excused
    2:24 Dr. Martin Warren- Defense calls for side bar before he arrives
    2:31 Judge back at seat and announces he needs to have Jury leave-matter to discuss w/ attnys-
    2:34 Aston wants Judge to look at improvised pictures/superimposed tapes the Dr. put together as a demonstrative aid.
    2:35 tape plays for Judge – KC looks angry and talking while tape is playing on her monitor
    (graphic representation of tape on skull)
    2:42 Baez objects to the demonstrative reenactment (super imposition) footage
    2:45 Judge tells Baez to reference an old case
    2:46 Baez thinks will mislead jury, and no proof the duct tape was in the position as the reenactment would display
    2:47 Judge says, lets put the Dr on the stand here(a proffer), listen to what he has to say and then he’ll make a decision.
    2:48 Dr. Michael Warren- Pathologist- Asst Proff of Pathology at U of FL.
    He uses populational data & means to apply to a single person=gives scale/measurements.
    2:53 BAEZ – Dr. does recall Ashton asked if there is the possibility the tape could have covered both airways. (discussed w/ Dr. G & Dr. Shultz)
    This doctor himself made the suggestion to Mr. Aston to do the super imposition. He did not see the actual tape on skull, only the pics. Baez says, No scale on actual skull photos or the live face pic doctor used from media to fairly and accurately have a depiction.
    2:57 BAEZ done
    2:57 Judge asks: what is the purpose of this demonstration. Answer: to demonstrate the width of the tape could cover both airway. He explains how they scale it all. Judge asks the skull that was used is the actual pic of the skull recvd from Med Ex. YES. It will illustrate it is possible to show tape could have covered both.
    3:00 judge asks if anything else?
    3:01 witness can stand down
    3:01 Judge announces RECESS until 3:15 while he ‘digests’ the reference case
    (KC looks angry-disturbed)
    3:17 Judge reading aloud Supreme Court decision, talks about the 2 cases Defense is using as their reason for objection.
    3:24 In looking at the factors he states the various court case decisions.
    3:26 Judge decides this is highly relevant, court will permit witness to testify and show super impositions & if requested by the Defense, he will give limiting instruction to Jury.
    3:28 Defense still objects
    3:29 Defense- the Dr. has cumulative testimony he had done with Dr. Shultz and would not like him to reference that. Judge says not considered cumulative unless witness is referencing 3 expert witnesses vs 2.

    3:32 Judge returns Jury
    3:33 Dr. Michael Warren SWORN IN- Assoc Proff at U of FL and Director of CA Pound CA Laboratory(working anthropological lab)
    3:36 accepted as Expert witness- Contacted by Dr G and Dr Shultz to asst in the analysis of the remains, went to the Med Ex office. Saw the mandible and connected at tmj area. When soft tissue missing, the jaw usually is not connected. Only other times ever saw mandible attached under the same condtions (skeletonized), the decedents had tape over their faces (Bosnia). Researched literature regarding anatomical distances /measurements. And created video super imposition as aid
    3:46 Judge announces objections by the Defense and explains to Jury the stipulation
    3:47 Ashton proceeds and publishes to jury
    3:53 Video completed- Ashton asks about an outline noted and he says it shows the various places it could have been on face. One single piece of tape would cover both nose and mouth.
    3:54 BAEZ cross examines- his video is to show ‘possibility’ tape covered both mouth & nose. Cannot testify the tape had anything to do with her cause of death. NO, Only saw photos=duct tape was attached to hair. Does understand scene remains were in 3 bags. The duct tape was over the mandible and some portion of the ‘…… ‘
    4:03 Objection by Defense- side bar
    4:06 side bar over .
    4:06 Baez says hair mat is underneath the skull, something had to make hair move in that direction. The video you showed of possibility –was it made to get emotions of jury.? OBJECTION by Prosec
    4:09 side bar
    4:12 Judge asks Jury to step out

    4:13 proceed with proffer of Dr. Warren- tape was NOT for ‘appealing to the jury, not for getting jury angry NO , and was for the mere possibility of showing tape could have covered nose and mouth.

    4:14 RECESS 5 minutes till 4:20
    4:24 Jury returns
    4:25 BAEZ resumes Dr. was not aware another piece of duct tape was found 9feet away. Asking if there are other possible scenarios for cause of death other then the tape over her face..
    4:27 What is his opinion as to when tape was placed on her: based on position of mandible. he saw nothing but tape holding mandible in place.. even with soft tissue missing.
    4:29 shows evidence photo.- how does hair end up below scalp. Hair slides down to back of base of skull, common.
    4:30 BAEZ refers to same evidence pic: notes significant root growth.. ‘Possible roots could contribute to holding mandible in place.’
    4:32 Baez done Ashton up
    4:32 Ashton- Are you familiar w/plant growth & decomposition, YES, locating graves and environmental changes..
    4:34 Baez- ‘you’re not a botanist. ‘ NO
    4:35 Dr. Warren excused
    4:36 Michael Vincent- SWORN IN again/Crime Scene tech w/ OC Sheriff- did you recover certain certain entimology from the ‘trash bag in trunk. yes
    4:37 shows him evidence envelope and identifies small vile containing maggots in preservative solution. Then sent to Dr. Haskell for evaluation
    4:40 another evidence envelope – bug insect eggs in late stage of life cycle- sent to Dr. Haskell
    4:41 BAEZ- collected on 8/28th?. Has some training in entimology-different stages of maggot & insect life cycle. He did not see any in trunk of car itself., sometime later saw insect activity.
    4:46 Robin Maynard SWORN IN- Crime scene Investg w/ OC Sheriff. –job was document evidence collected..
    4:47 shows evidence pkg- pupae collect on Suburban Drive.- consulted w/ Dr. Neil Haskell. Documented the location of items.
    4:49 calls multiple evidence evidence phgs, entimology items
    4:52 asks for more evidence pkgs
    4:55 asks for more evidence pkgs
    4:56 another piece of evidence/pkg piece of cardboard with pink heart shaped material attached.
    4:47 BAEZ crosses- found in the area with other things in surrounding area. She was the lead in charge of ‘sifting’. Baez asking if kids walk pass there on way to school-OBJECTION- she has no personal knowledge if kids walk past there to go to school.

    5:00 witness excused
    5:01 RECESS for the day until tomorrow morning

    5:02 Baez submits Motion for a Mistrial- based on the superimposed video-witness testified it was speculative, defense believes used to upset jury. Judge asks: ‘Has not both the state & defense advanced theories of the location of the duct tape? YES. And didn’t the witness say is was a ‘possible’ scenario? Baez says 2 minutes was to inflame the jury. Prosec says testimony of witness did testify skull had tape over mouth, nose or both. He believes it demonstrates it was used to cause death. Prosec thinks demo tape was necessary.
    Judge says: ’ When does the court have to rule on the Motion for mistrial? Court can rule on motion for a mistrial up to the time before a verdict is reached. Motion denied at this time but will consider at another time'

    JA asking if he worked with others, duct tape as weapon, photos of tape by FBI, picture of child’s face and picture of her skull, matched up for scale to create facial features for placement of tape, needed to use picture for length and measurement of her face, this process is only correct way to do it, got picture of Caylee from internet

    3:39 – Casey looking angry

    tape had moved, wide single piece would be sufficient to cover nose & mouth, measured nasal aperture to bottom of teeth – airways, Eye to chin measurements, superimposition of skull and photo of deceased person, compare skull/photo match up, osteometric points
    for Caylee ID already done, superimposition used to garner position of duct tape
