I dont think ALL those people who described the smell lied. lol I do think we have a few cops who don't now want to admit they smelled the stench but ingored it. Think about it we have essentially young rookie cops like Ryan Eberling and Adriano Acevedo who initially thought they had a domestic on their hands. They were looking for direction from their superior who at that time was Sgt Hosie. It became all about Caylee being taken by her babysitter. Apparently the only Anthony to express concern about the smell was George but he didnt do it openly. He waited till Yuri Mellich arrived. Not so great policing? Certainly. But I doubt anyone arriving at that middle class home had murder on their minds. Hosie decided to hand the case over to a missing persons. That's when Mellich was contacted. Sgt Hosie and his officers were effectively done. They were outta there. If we have to attribute blame then it has to go to the Senior Officer who left the scene in the wee hours of July 16th. That was Yuri Mellich. Hindsight being what it is, I'm sure Yuri Mellich probably wishes he'd done things differently. Then there's the little matter of probable cause. In this case the police got permission to take the car, rather than wait for a court order.
