Casey Anthony defense team files expert witness list


    By Anthony Colarossi, Orlando Sentinel

10:39 a.m. EST, December 1, 2010

The Casey Anthony defense team has filed a new expert witness list in court with big-name scientists expected to testify at Anthony's upcoming murder trial.

Among those on the list:

•Dr. Henry Lee, the well-known criminalist and forensic pathologist often associated with the O.J. Simpson case. According to his website, Lee is founder and professor of the Forensic Science Program at the University of New Haven. During a 40-year period, Lee assisted with the investigations of some 6,000 cases.

• Dr. Tim Huntington, an assistant professor at Concordia University, Nebraska, and a board-certified entomologist. Forensic entomology applies the study of insects to a legal context to help establish times of death and postmortem movement of bodies.

• Richard Eikelenboom, a renowned Dutch forensic expert who, along with his wife Selma, is a partner at Independent Forensic Services, a Netherlands lab specializing in trace evidence recovery and Touch DNA testing. They are considered pioneers in the field of "Touch DNA." Richard Eikelenboom is a DNA expert who handles blood-pattern analysis.

Other experts listed by the defense are: Dr. Werner Spitz, from Michigan; Dr. Kathy Reichs, of North Carolina; Dr. Jane H. Bock, of the University of Colorado Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department; Dr. Scott Fairgrieve, chair of the Department of Forensic Science at Laurentian University in Ontario; Dr. Kenneth Furton, of University Medical & Forensic Consultants, Inc., in West Palm Beach; Dr. Barry Logan of National Medical Services, Inc., in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania; Dr. John Leeson, of Winter Springs; Dr. William Rodriguez, of Maryland; Dr. Michael Freeman, forensic epidemiologist; and Michael O'Kelly, an expert witness out of Nebraska.

Anthony, 24, is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie, in the summer of 2008. She faces the death penalty if convicted. Her trial is expected to start in May.

The defense experts are expected to testify about the scientific evidence produced in this case, including DNA evidence from the scene where the child's body was recovered in late 2008 and evidence collected from Casey Anthony's car.

Baez Wants Reimbursement For Experts' Travel


Casey Anthony Defense Attorney Files Request In New Motion




POSTED: 2:59 pm EST December 1, 2010
UPDATED: 3:10 pm EST December 1, 2010



ORLANDO, Fla. -- Casey Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez says his team's experts should be reimbursed for their prior travel expenses.




In a new motion, Baez asks to be paid back for the travel costs of five experts who came to Orlando in July to review evidence in the case.
Read The Motion
Baez argues that Judge Belvin Perry agreed in October to pay such costs within strict state guidelines for travel expended.
Anthony was declared indigent in March. A state commission now doles out funding for her defense, at taxpayers' expense.
The new motion does not specify how much money Baez is asking for.

Baez To Prosecutor: 'Please Tell Me You Knew This'


Prosecutor Believes Casey Anthony Defense Attorney Isn't Complying With Court Order




POSTED: 6:21 pm EST December 2, 2010
UPDATED: 7:04 pm EST December 2, 2010



ORLANDO, Fla. -- Monday's status hearing in the Casey Anthony murder case has sparked an email spat between Anthony's lead defense attorney, Jose Baez, and prosecutor Jeff Ashton.




At the hearing, Judge Belvin Perry ordered that defense attorneys not only list the names of their expert witnesses for prosecutors but also turn over notes, photos and video the experts have taken.
Perry also ordered Anthony's defense to give prosecutors information about what field each of the experts will be addressing. It's that subject that seems to be causing frustration on the part of the prosecution.
In a new motion, Ashton writes that he believes the defense is trying to avoid complying with the court's order.
READ: Motion & E-mail Conversation
Ashton includes an e-mail conversation between him and Baez.
"The goal here is to work together, right? Please check below and if you have any questions let me know," Baez said in his e-mail to Ashton.
The e-mail contains names and addresses of the experts, in addition to short descriptions of their fields, such as forensic pathology, anthropology or botany.
Baez also writes what the experts did. He writes one "performed the second autopsy on Caylee." Another "inspected the car and was at the evidence inspection."
Baez also adds notes in his e-mail such as, "you already know this," "please tell me you knew this" and "you know what he will testify to as you objected to it at the hearing."
"This is not what the judge ordered," Ashton writes in response to Baez's e-mail. "I want a written statement of the substance of their testimony."
"You know what all of the forensic issues are," Baez writes in his continuation of the e-mail conversation.
Ashton later tells Baez he reviewed the tape of Monday's hearing and quotes Perry. He said Baez' deadline to comply with the order is 4 p.m. on Friday.

PostSubject: Casey Anthony Case: Understanding the 'dispute' between Baez and Ashton   Fri Dec 03, 2010 12:20 pm

Caylee Anthony case: Understanding the ‘dispute’ between Baez and Ashton

Posted on December 2, 2010 by Valhall

In this week’s hearing Judge Perry ordered the defense team provide the state with a list of their expert witnesses and “the substance of the testimony of the witnesses”. Judge Perry ordered this after Jeff Ashton made a point that they still had not receive a complete expert witness list from the defense, nor had they had clarification of exactly what area of expertise the witness was planned to be used for in the trial. This is important considering the state has depositions scheduled, needs to schedule more for those witnesses not yet identified, and it helps a great deal to know exactly what you’re needing to ask the expert witness about before coming to the deposition.
As discussed previously the defense’s expert witness list has been…amorphous, in flux, evaporative, and kind of…unidentifiable. At first (and for the longest time) was just Dr. Henry Lee and Dr. Kobilinsky, but then in latter versions some were added, some were dropped (for instance Dr. Kobilinsky apparently is a “drop” not a sticker…if you’re keeping count I think the drops outweigh the stickers). So firming up the present expert witness list is pretty important if you are trying to depose the people on that list.
But in addition to that, as previously stated, knowing what area of expertise you need to depose them on, in preparation for cross-examination at trial, is pretty important. Let’s just take one example to show why the state needs to know what area the expert witness will be testifying in. From Dr. Henry Lee’s curriculum vitae:

Dr. Lee is Chief Emeritus for the Connecticut Department of Public Safety and Chair Professor in the Forensic Science Program at University of New Haven in West Haven, CT. He is also Director of the Forensic Research and Training Center in Branford, CT, and Founder of the Henry C. Lee Institute of Forensic Science in West Haven, CT. His first degree was in Police Science after which he obtained a B.S. in Forensic Science, went on for a Masters degree in Science, and his doctorate in Biochemistry. He has taught in a wide area of forensics ranging from introductory courses to advanced levels of courses. He is qualified as an expert witness in forensic science, forensic serology, bloodspatter analysis, crime scene investigation, crime scene profiling, crime scene reconstruction, fingerprints, imprints and general physical evidence. He states he is also recognized as an expert in forensic laboratory examination, traffic accident investigation, airplane accident investigation, fire and arson investigation, home and industrial security, and homicide, rape, and robbery investigation. He has served as an expert witness in many trials including such high-profile cases as O.J. Simpson, the Dupont murder case, Jon Benet Ramsey, William Kennedy Smith rape case, and recently the Phil Spector case (in which there were allegations of impropriety by Dr. Lee).
Okay, so we are left to guess exactly what Dr. Lee’s area of expertise in the Caylee Anthony murder trial will be. Will it be traffic accident investigation? (There are indications she was dead in a car.) Will it be crime scene profiling? Will the Jack of all Trades be talking about all of the above? No, I don’t think he will. So the state needs to know which area, from this virtual smorgasbord of knowledge Dr. Lee presents, they need to center on in the deposition.
So, Judge Perry orders the defense to produce the expert witness list and their area of expertise for the trial. This is what the defense presented:
http://docs.docstoc.com/pdf/288745/7db87d05-b7cd-4dc0-9c7b-10bf47a38636.pdf
As you can see it is a list of 13 witnesses with the designation “(Expert)” after each name. This is clearly not what Judge Perry ordered the defense produce.
I’m going to summarize Jeff Ashton’s response to this. “He was clearly not amused.
Jeff Ashton has now filed a Motion to Compel Compliance with Judge Perry’s order. Included with this motion are exhibits (if you will) of the situation. The exhibit is a string of emails between Jeff Ashton and Jose Baez in which Jeff Ashton initiates the communication by pointing out what the defense has produced is not in accordance with the judge’s orders and that they need to produce the area of expertise for each witness.
What ensues is Jose Baez acting like a red-assed baboon. No wait, like a banal, infantile, red-assed baboon. After several iterations of Baez showing what a slithering snake he is, Jeff Ashton was left with such informative morsels as:

DR. WILLIAM RODRIGUEZ
(Anthropologist/Taphonomy: You know what he will testify to you objected to it at the hearing and have read my opinion.)
Well, actually, JOSE, what he objected to was that “Taphonomy” was not well-enough defined for the state to agree that the expert might not need to be vetted first and that the rather amorphous label of “taphonomy” does not nail down well enough what the expert will be testifying about for the state to say, okay, that sounds good to us. So you’ve cleared nothing up with your juvenile snarkiness.
Then we have this one:

RICHARD EIKELENBOOM
(DNA expert, may testify about DNA)
Will he be testifying in protest to the mtDNA results that identify the remains as Caylee Anthony? Will he be testifying to the mtDNA results that identify the death hair as Caylee Anthony’s? Or will he be testifying to “contact DNA” testing? Are you saying he may testify to contact DNA, but you’re not sure, because you’re spending the state’s money on hopes there is contact DNA evidence on the bag that will be exculpatory, but don’t yet know if there will be? What DNA issue is he testifying to, JOSE?
And then this wealth of knowledge:

MICHAEL O’KELLY
(Cell Towers, He may testify about Cell Towers and Cell phones)
Is he going to testify on the building codes for cell towers? The aviation safety measures that must be taken for cell towers? Or maybe the cell phone pings associated with cell towers, JOSE? And cell phones, is he going to tell us the features of certain brands of cell phones, some mysterious unique ping-a-bility of cell phones according to who you are sleeping with? What about cell phones, JOSE?
You’re an idiot, JOSE. You’re an unadulterated idiot. You continue to play sleazy games, not focus on the issues of importance, waste the court’s time, the state’s time and the taxpayers’ funds. You screwed the pooch when you didn’t advise your client to try for a plea at the beginning of this nightmare, and you screwed that pooch because you wanted to make a name for yourself, and you’ve done nothing but continue to dig the hole she’ll be buried in when this mess is over.
Justice for Caylee requires a just trial for Casey Anthony, but you don’t give a damn about either one. If you don’t start acting like a grown up who knows which way is up so that others can tell your law degree is real, you, JOSE, need to be disbarred….or at least ran out of town on a rail.
JMO!

DA Adds New Names To Casey Anthony's Witness List


Zenaida Gonzalez Appears In Prosecution's Witness List For Trial




POSTED: 9:05 pm EST December 3, 2010
UPDATED: 9:38 pm EST December 3, 2010





ORLANDO, Fla. -- Prosecutors have added the name of Zenaida Gonzalez to their witness list for the murder trial against Casey Anthony.
Gonzelez, who was suing Anthony for ruining her good name, appeared in the names added to the prosecution's witness list for the trial. Prosecutors said they will use Gonzalez to argue that Anthony knowingly let her fall under suspicion because she knew that the baby sitter of the same name, who she blamed for kidnapping her daughter Caylee, doesn't exist.
Also on the list is Ricardo Morales, Anthony's former boyfriend who photographed Caylee with her mother in a shirt that was later found in tatters at the Suburban Drive crime scene, and corrections officer Sylvia Hernandez who admittedly allowed Anthony to correspond with a jailhouse pen pal against policy, prosecutors said.
The defense team, meanwhile, was scheduled to turn over to the court a list of new witnesses who they claimed could support their contention that someone other than Anthony had put her daughter's remains in the woods.

PostSubject: The Real Reason For Casey Anthony's Laughter & Smiles In the Courtroom- She Was Genuinely Happy for Law Clerk's Surprise Swearing-In As A Lawyer   Sat Dec 11, 2010 9:41 pm

The Real Reason For Casey Anthony’s Laughter and Smiles In The Courtoom- She Was Genuinely Happy for Law Clerk’s Surprise Swearing-In As A Lawyer



I recently wrote a blog where I, along with countless others who saw Casey Anthony’s recent behavior in the courtroom felt shocked and appalled at Casey’s smiling and laughing behavior.
But now, an extremely reliable source, who was actually in the courtroom and who had first hand knowledge of the circumstances, informed me as to what really happen to cause Casey to smile and laugh at the end of the hearing when Casey’s lead attorney, Jose Baez left the table.

Evidently Casey’s laughter and smiling had nothing at all to do with her case or why she was in the courtroom. Instead, it had everything to do with a swearing-in ceremony one of Jose Baez’ law clerks becoming a full-fledged attorney at the end of the hearing.

Apparently at the end of the hearing lead , attorney Jose Baez surprised his law clerk by having Judge Perry swear the clerk in at the sidebar. Casey evidently knew nothing about this until the woman sitting next to her, who was actually another attorney in Baez’ office, informed her of what was happening and shared the good news with her.
Now it makes complete sense to me. Quite honesty I was appalled and confused when I suddenly saw Casey’s laughter and genuine cheek raised smiles. She looked genuinely happy for the first time and I wondered why. What caused her to suddenly change her courtroom demeanor?

Earlier in that blog I wrote how impressed I was that Casey was actually paying attention to others who were speaking in the courtroom. She actually looked at the person and appeared focused. She was not fidgeting or smiling. You can clearly see this in the photo above.
This was a dramatic transformation from the Casey we first saw two years ago when she first stepped foot into the courtroom. There is no doubt that this was due to the efforts of her attorney Jose Baez, who finally succeeded in teaching his client proper courtroom behavior, so that she could have every chance to get a fair trial.
NEW INSIGHT INTO CASEY
So when Jose left the table and Casey was left alone with someone else, I thought she reverted back to her old ways. But evidently she did not. Instead, she was genuinely interested in another person as you can see by her body language.

She looked like someone who was genuinely proud of another person. Apparently this particular law clerk has gone to the bat for Casey and has worked long hard hours helping with her defense for the past two years. She also knew how hard he worked for his personal goal of becoming a full-fledged attorney. So she was genuinely happy for him and it showed in her body language.
The body doesn’t lie! Having said that, it is essential to know in what context the body language and facial movements are made. In this case had I not been informed of the context that accounted for Casey’s sudden joy and laughter, when attorney Baez left the table, I would have assumed that she was not taking her presence in the courtroom seriously.
But now that I was informed as to the correct context as to what occurred, I can see that Casey’s laughter and smiles were understandable. It made a lot more sense to me.
Her genuine body language with genuine warm smile showed that Casey was actually outside of herself. She was thinking about another person other than herself. This is a very different side of Casey than we have ever seen.
If she did kill Caylee, too bad she wasn’t thinking of Caylee instead of herself. If jurors do happen to see a glimpse of this side of Casey- a more genuine side and a more human side, they may not look at her as a complete monster and may spare her life from lethal injection .

Tuesday Hearing Planned In Anthony Case


Court Receives E-Mail Indicating Caylee Is Alive




POSTED: 1:55 pm EST December 13, 2010
UPDATED: 2:29 pm EST December 13, 2010



ORLANDO, Fla. -- Another money hearing is scheduled for Tuesday in the case against Casey Anthony.




Meanwhile, photos taken of a second autopsy on Caylee Anthony's remains have been turned over by the defense to prosecutors in the case.
The autopsy was performed on Caylee's remains by defense expert Werner Spitz. The photos were placed on a DVD and given to the prosecution.
An e-mail was also placed in the official court records that claimed Caylee is alive and may be in the Los Angeles area.

Read The E-Mail


The author of the e-mail to the court claimed Caylee was taken to Los Angeles and now goes by the name of Caylee Gonzalez. The man who signed the e-mail, James McIntyre, claimed he saw Caylee in a video taken at a Christmas pageant one week after her remains were found.
Also, Judge Belvin Perry will hear a request from Jose Baez to be reimbursed for the cost of flying his team of experts to Central Florida in July to review evidence.
The costs run into the thousands of dollars, but no specific amount was given.
At Tuesday's hearing, Baez will also ask the court to fund more hours for defense investigators to continue their work.
It was not immediately known whether Anthony will attend Tuesday afternoon's hearing, but court records show her defense team has been given permission to participate over the phone as will lawyers for the state agency that distributes money to indigent clients.

The Anthony Encylcliepedia: Cindy lies to John Allen

Posted on December 13, 2010 by Valhall

On the morning of July 25th, 2008, Casey got her first jailhouse visits from her brother, Lee, and her parents, George and Cindy. Lee visited Casey first and then around 9 a.m. George and Cindy shared their first visitation with their daughter since learning their granddaughter, Caylee, was missing and Casey was subsequently arrested.
At approximately 2 minutes and 30 second into the taped visitation between George, Cindy and Casey, one of the first jaw-dropping moments in the “dynamics” between the Anthony parents and Casey Anthony occurred that would ultimately be viewed by the public. It was the first instance of watching Cindy guide Casey away from potentially telling the truth, or at least getting caught in a lie so that Cindy could work the magic she claimed she could work to “get the truth out of Casey”.
At 2:30 into the visitation Cindy Anthony says she has a couple of questions she needs to ask Casey. The first is concerning a photograph taken of Caylee sitting in someone’s apartment with a Rock Band drum set in the background.



Cindy describes the above picture and asks Casey “Is that Zanny’s apartment?” Now had Cindy stopped there and let Casey respond, she either would have gotten the truth from Casey (doubted since Casey initially said yes), OR she could have outright called her on the lie and forced to explain two important things: Whose apartment is it? And, why did you lie and say it was Zanny’s? But Cindy didn’t stop there, it actually went like this:


Is it Zanny’s apartment?

Because I know whose apartment is it…Is it Zanny’s apartment?

At that point Cindy had alerted Casey that what she was about to say, Cindy already knew to be lie, so did she want to change her story so that she could act like she was never going to lie….basically is what this reduces to. A fundamental enabling, covering and rescuing act by Cindy. Immediately we watch Casey’s demeanor change from feeling she’s in a tight spot to….okay, no, all I have to do is agree with her now and she’ll move on, which is exactly what Cindy did during the visitation.

Now, how did Cindy know that the photograph was not Zanny’s apartment, that it was actually someone else’s, and who that someone else was? That is all explained in Cindy’s July 30, 2008 interview with FBI Agent Scott Bolin. Beginning on page 25 of the interview transcript Cindy starts talking about the “drum set” picture. She explains that Casey had told her “several months ago before all of this happened” that the picture was taken at Zanny’s apartment, but she [Cindy] found out “a week ago” that the picture was actually taken at Ricardo Morales’s apartment. Cindy states:


Because Amy told me…And Ricardo confirmed that when he was at my house a week ago that, that…that indeed is his apartment.

That’s not exactly correct, but we’ve come to expect any “timeframe” statement by the Anthony’s to be off give or take days, months or years. It wasn’t a week before the FBI interview, it was actually 10 to 12 days. Because on either July 18th or July 20th (Cindy says it was on Friday, but then says it was on Sunday), as stated by Cindy in her August 1, 2008 interview with OCSO, Cindy and George had a bunch of Casey’s friends over to their house after a vigil for Caylee, and started trying to pull information from them to construct a timeline. That’s when Ricardo was at the Anthony home and confirmed the picture was taken at his apartment.

So, at least 5 days before visiting Casey for the first time at the OCSO jail, Cindy had already been set straight that the picture was taken at Ricardo’s. Instead of using the moment to verbally force Casey into confessing she had been lying about a “Zanny” and try to get her to break and tell the truth about where Caylee was, Cindy immediately helped Casey get past, or jump over, this huge lie that she had caught Casey in.

Five days after the July 25th jail visit Cindy would try to convince Scott Bolin with the FBI that maybe Ricardo or Amy was Zanny because Casey had told her the picture was taken at Zanny’s apartment and come to find out it was Ricardo’s apartment. She would attempt to do the same thing during the OCSO interview 2 days later on August 1st, but Yuri Melich shut her down in her speculative finger-pointing and told her, in so many words, they weren’t there to discuss fantastic diversionary theories Cindy and Casey were coming up with to throw other people under the bus when there was no evidence to support such theories.

Why did Yuri have such an immediate reaction to Cindy’s attempts to turn the discussion toward a theory that Ricardo or Amy could be Zanny based on the fact the picture Casey had previously claimed to have been taken at Zanny’s was actually at Ricardo’s apartment? Well, most likely because he had already found out that Cindy had led them down a false path on July 23, 2008.

Three days after Cindy and George had Casey’s friends over to their house, which means three days after Ricardo confirmed, in person to Cindy, that the “Zanny drum set” picture was actually taken at his apartment, and two days before Cindy even spoke to Casey about ANYTHING since she had been arrested, Cindy made a phone call to John Allen and left a voice message. In this voice message Cindy states that she has been told over and over that the “drum set” picture of Caylee was taken at Zanny’s apartment. She then suggested they they blow that picture up and analyze it and then show it to Casey’s friends and others asking if they know anything about that picture. She rambles on for a while about other inane things and comes back to the picture and states that she believes that picture is very important, she then basically threatens OCSO with going to the media if they do not follow the leads she is providing, and comes back to the picture to wind up and state they need to get the picture out and request that the public come forward if they have seen that apartment.

So…when did Cindy first DIRECTLY attempt to throw someone under the bus? The answer is, July 23, 2008, three days after she learned for sure that the drum set picture was taken at Ricardo Morales’s and she intentionally misled OCSO by threatening that if they did not try to find out the importance of that picture and any information on the apartment it was taken at, which she was stating was Zanny’s apartment, knowing full-well when they did investigate they would find it was really Ricardo’s apartment, she would go to the media and start disclosing how they were not following leads.

While we all have to give that Cindy is bat-shit crazy, half ate up with stupid, in denial and inadequately handling the loss of her granddaughter, we don’t have ignore when she is diabolically evil in her attempts to obstruct justice and throw innocent people under the bus. This would be one of those times.

Special thanks and credit to Hinky contributors ellejay, Kleat and Ann-Tx, along with others who participated in a recent Ventrilo chat where this was all pulled together as a team. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Anthony lawyers ask for more time



Updated: Monday, 13 Dec 2010, 5:19 PM EST
Published : Monday, 13 Dec 2010, 5:08 PM EST


ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Lawyers representing Casey Anthony are requesting additional time to investigate in preparation for her upcoming murder trial, scheduled to begin on May 2, 2011.
The defense had previously requested 300 hours of investigation time for services rendered in-state back in October. That request was denied by Chief Circuit Judge Belvin Perry, Jr.; however, the court did grant an additional 60 hours to Anthony's defense team.
In a motion filed on Monday, Anthony's lead attorney, Jose Baez, states that those hours have been exhausted and he is requesting more time.
"The defense is respectfully requesting additional hours for investigative services rendered in-state in order to continue investigating evidence alleged in the State's discovery, which continues to be on-going," wrote Baez, who did not specify the amount of time needed and appears to have left this to the discretion of the court.
In addition, a motion to approve prior travel of out of state experts was filed on Monday by the defense. The motion was filed to comply with requirements set forth by the Justice Administrative Commission (JAC), which oversees the spending of taxpayer funds, as Anthony has been declared indigent.
Specifically, the order pertains to forensic work conducted by Dr. Henry Lee, Dr. Richard Eikelenboom, Dr. Selma Eikelenboom, Dr. Timothy Huntington and Dr. Nicholas Petraco on July 13th and 14th.
Judge Perry is expected to rule on the motions during a hearing on Tuesday, scheduled to begin at 4 p.m.

PostSubject: "I quite frankly don't know why we are here..... - Jose Baez"   Mon Dec 13, 2010 11:56 pm

“I quite frankly don’t know why we are here..– Jose Baez”

In a rare 5 P.M. Friday afternoon court appearance, after attempting to gain compliance from Jose Baez, State’s Attorney Jeff Ashton successfully convinced The Honorable Belvin Perry that the defense team for Casey Anthony has been holding out. While unavailable at the time of this articles publication, the new order in essence says Jose Baez’s proffer of an entomologist “will be talking about bugs”, is not going to fly. Pun Intended.
Chief Judge Perry, after reminding the parties that discovery has been ongoing for over 2 years and the May 2011 trial date is rapidly approaching, verbally dictated a new order on the record.
As a specific example of the defense’s non-compliance, Ashton references Dr. Michael Freeman, a forensic epidemiologist who intends to charge the state $575/hr to depose him, when the application of his area of expertise to the case against Casey Anthony for murdering her daughter Caylee is questionable at best.
Or Is It?




Epidemiology is “the study of the distribution and determinants of health related states or events in populations, and the application of this study to control health problems”. It is the basic science for public health.


Admittedly, Dr. Freeman’s addition to the defense expert witness list has been on my mind for over a week. His curriculum vitae, as impressive as it is, is heavy with publications about neck injuries following various impact ratio vehicle accidents, vertebrae -spinal cord compression and roller coaster whiplash.
What is he going to testify to? Was THE BAEZ LAW FIRM really going to go with the nanny was in a car accident with Caylee and Casey was following her and they accidentally smothered her with duct tape which was meant to act as some sort of neck brace? Maddening, yes. Plausible, No.
After examining the email’s included in Ashton’s motion for the umpteenth time, I finally realized what was bugging me more than the absence of what was already ordered by the court in it’s content, or the juvenile response from the lead counsel in a murder defense and sworn officer of the court.
It was the fact that in both email’s from Jose Baez to Jeff Ashton there was only one expert witness whose name was not bolded and seemed to be sandwiched in, almost as if to demonstrate it’s lack of importance. Moreover, Jose Baez suggests to Ashton that the state depose him last, as his reports are incomplete.




$575 an hour rate to tell the court at trial what the statistical and probable likelihood is of a public outbreak of unemployed, Caucasian, Target-loving party girls suddenly murdering their toddlers is?
Methinks the nut is under Freeman’s shell, but how is that possible?
Chiari Malformation Type I
Almost conveniently, Chiari 1 complications contributing to the sudden death of a child, was profiled in an episode of Dr. G Medical Examiner. Jan Garavaligia, MD who performed the autopsy on Caylee Anthony is the Medical Examiner in District 9, Orange County, Florida and an expert witness listed by the prosecution in this case. Garion Barber is an 8 year old Orlando boy who passed away in his sleep in March 2008 with only a minor history with seizures. Dr. G’s office investigated his death for over 4 months before she was able to conclude Garion died from an un diagnosed Chiari 1 malformation/sleep apnea. Dr . G also had the benefit of reaching her findings on a recently deceased child, unlike 34 month old Caylee, whose remains were tossed in a swamp off Suburban Drive and were completely skeletonized at the time of their discovery two years ago today.


In an unrelated published study, a three year old child with an un diagnosed CM1 died when exacerbating his unknown condition by a very minor bump on the head.
In the anthropologic portion of Caylee Anthony’s autopsy report conducted by Dr. John Schultz and Dr. Michael Warren, it was discovered through examination that Caylee had a previously un diagnosed premature closing of the cranial sutures, or saggital synostosis.


You guessed it, absent any previous x-rays, soft tissue and a cause of death by “undetermined means”:It is an invitation to the connection between Saggital Synostosis and Chiari I.

CASE DESCRIPTION:
We report 2 cases of uncorrected sagittal synostosis associated with the development of Chiari malformations with syringomyelia later in life. To our knowledge, this is the first report of symptomatic Chiari malformations associated with uncorrected sagittal synostosis. We discuss mode of presentation and management in each case. We propose that these patients either have a pathophysiological predisposition to Chiari malformations based on the compensatory bone growth pattern in sagittal synostosis resulting in craniocephalic disproportion or that there may be an underlying genetic alteration accounting for the association of the 2 processes.
“We are not here to hide anything…. Jose Baez”




Dr. Freeman is absolutely a pre-eminent specialist in cerebellar tonsillar ectopia, or Chiari Malformations, as outlined in his published works.





Freeman MD, Rosa S, Harshfield D, Smith F, Bennett R, Centeno CJ, Kornel E, Nystrom A, Heffez D, Kohles SS. A case-control study of cerebellar tonsillar ectopia and cervical spine trauma. European Spine J


Conveniently, penned in her prison alter ego identity “Muffin”, we learn from Casey herself that she is now suffering from non-allergy prompted headaches and seizures. According to former fiance and favorite defense patsy Jesse Grund, the only seizure-like incident Casey has ever had was after an evening of heavy drinking. George Anthony, who together with Cindy Anthony met Casey at the hospital the next day, has stated in interviews with OCSO there was no evidence she had a seizure or that anything was wrong with her physically when they arrived. That girl has a PDR in her “law drawer” for sure.
Can we say retroactive heredity link to bolster her defense?




More than 150 families joined the initial phase of the CM1/S research study and provided detailed family histories and blood samples. We reported familial aggregation in a large study of 364 CM1/S patients. Of these study participants, 21 of the patients’ families had two or more cases of CM1/S within the family. Thanks to all of the families who generously participated in the study, we were able to successfully accomplish the first step of the genetic research, which showed familial aggregation of CM1/S.



The burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Casey Anthony murdered her daughter Caylee rests solely with the State of Florida.
The burden of creating reasonable doubt rests solely with the defense team she has hired to do so.
The problem with this theory, and make no mistake, it is wrought with problems, is that it is illogical, devoid of reason, and who is going to believe that a loving Mother whose child dies of natural causes tapes her face, dumps her in a laundry bag and tosses her to rot in a swamp on the way out of her parents subdivision?
There are hundreds of pictures of Casey Anthony dancing on bars, video of her arm in arm at the video store with Tony Lazzarro within hours of what OCSO believes Casey Anthony murdered her daughter. Let’s not forget she spent the better part of the previous year stealing thousands of dollars from her own family to avoid work of any kind.
Did anyone tell the “young lawyer” Mr. Baez that you do not seat a mock jury with members of your family?
Profound narcissism just came off the Diagnostic Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM) , read up people.
Her entire “defense” has been structured around a fake nanny with the real name of Zenaida Gonzalez she is also still counter-suing in a civil action. Casey, her attorneys, and her family have appeared on hundreds of hours of news coverage proclaiming she could not help locate her daughter or her daughters alleged abductors for fear of their safety. How does that compute to a confession of improper burial? It does not.
If in fact this un diagnosed CM1 is what Casey Anthony believes is her get out of jail free card, there is a zero percent chance she could pull it off without taking the stand. In this editors opinion, there is also a zero percent chance she can “take back” the zanny story, which means she either has to convince a jury that she believed it, or that she pointed that finger to protect someone else. Enter George, again, sadly.
The only way to counter the biggest counsciousness of guilt thought bubble permanently affixed above her head is to explain why she never called to report her child missing for 31 days, and even then, it was her Mother’s sad task after smelling decomposition in her abandoned car.
With the exception of two defense experts who are set to be deposed next week, both the prosecution and defense are ordered to provide specific and thorough information about their respective witnesses and what they intend to testify to, by December 23, 2010.
According to Jeff Ashton’s oral argument in support of the state’s motion heard yesterday, they have already met that burden.
It should prove to be a very busy week for THE BAEZ LAW FIRM.
Well played Mr. Ashton, well played indeed.

River Cruz Speaks Out!




On tonight's Levi Page Show, River Cruz broke her silence to speak about George Anthony.

She spoke from a defensive posture; obviously feeling accused of being a liar; with quotes from Brad Conway and others.

River described a manipulative man who could "turn tears on a dime" and described George and Cindy as being media and money hungry.

She described incidents that appeared to be the media "bothering" George whereas George actually called media in.

She described Cindy Anthony as a "barracuda" and one who took money from any and everyone she could, including the KidFingers money that she helped herself to.

She admitted lying about a sexual relationship with George, out of shame; telling the police that she did not have a sexual relationship with George Anthony, when, in fact, she did. She stated that she was ashamed of herself and did not want to

Twin sister shot at a cop and did 7 years for possession. She said that she was blamed for things her sister had done and said that her sister is her "twin". She feels that the media falsely portrayed her as a former prostitute, which she denied ever "walking down those roads" as her sister had done.

She said media said, "the media twins" were looking for money. She said that when she was 13 or 14, she stole gum from a store, but they made her and her sister out to be the same people which led her to suicide.

River said she was in 10 different foster homes; had attempted suicide, and that George Anthony put the touch to her for more than $4,500 by using tears, by promising her money because, as George said, his face is known by everyone.

I find her portrayal of George accurate; I find a minimal amount of qualifiers (outside of the defensive posture; emphasis, and pleading of her case). She found herself portrayed as a money seeking liar, and George "knew" (a repeated theme by River) and could have ended her suffering at any time, by admitting the affair.

River attempted suicide and said that she "flat lined"; and was brought back.

At any time, George Anthony could have ended or at least mitigated River's suffering, but his silence contributed to her pain.

George a "drama king" seems to enjoy the portrayal as the "dopey, likable" dolt who doesn't know what is going on in his own home.

She rightfully pointed out that George has never denied his affair with River.

Baez To Argue For Additional $12K At Tuesday Hearing


Hearing Scheduled For 4 P.M.


POSTED: 11:53 am EST December 14, 2010
UPDATED: 12:04 pm EST December 14, 2010

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Another money hearing is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon in the case against Casey Anthony.
Defense attorney Jose Baez has asked for an additional 300 investigative hours.
Judge Belvin Perry turned down a similar request in October and only granted 60 hours for the defense at that time.
In court paperwork filed on Tuesday, Baez said that those hours have been exhausted and there is still new information in the case that must be investigated.
At the state-approved rate of $40 per hour, the 300 hours Baez requested could cost taxpayers $12,000. Anthony was declared indigent in March so a state agency now doles out funding for her defense.
Perry will hear a request from Baez to be reimbursed for the cost of flying his team of experts to Central Florida in July to review evidence.
The costs run into the thousands of dollars, but no specific amount was given.
The hearing will take place at 4 p.m. at the Orange County Courthouse. Anthony is not expected to attend. Baez will participate by telephone.
Anthony's trial is scheduled to begin in May.

Perry Gives Casey Anthony Defense More Investigative Hours


Judge Grants Portion Of Request At Tuesday Hearing




POSTED: 5:08 pm EST December 14, 2010
UPDATED: 5:15 pm EST December 14, 2010



ORLANDO, Fla. -- Judge Belvin Perry granted Casey Anthony's defense more investigative hours at a Tuesday afternoon hearing.


Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez requested 300 additional hours, saying that that the hours that had already been granted by Perry had been exhausted.


Anthony was declared indigent in March, so a state agency now doles out money for her defense. That means costs such as investigative hours, which can reimbursed up to $40 per hour, must be approved by Perry.
Baez filed a similar motion in October. Perry only granted a portion of the hours Baez requested at that time.
In the latest request, Baez told Perry during Wednesday's hearing that the additional hours were needed to interview around 110 of the state's witnesses.
Baez said that the interviews needed to be conducted for the defense to do its due diligence in defending Anthony. He told Perry he did not believe these witnesses would need to be deposed.
Perry pointed out that since the murder charge Anthony faces could carry capitol punishment, he agreed that additional hours would not be excessive and he said that he wants the case to progress toward a May trial date.
Baez and a representative from the Justice Administrative Commission, which distributes funding for indigent clients, joined the hearing by phone.
After Perry granted additional investigative hours, the JAC representative pointed out that the defense may not have any hours left to use, seeing as the current invoices the commission has received already total more that what has been granted.
Perry pointed to at least one invoice, saying that he believes some of the costs that have been invoiced may not be reimbursable under the JAC's guidelines. The JAC said the invoices had not yet been gone through in detail.
Perry ended up saying the defense could have 110 hours to use after the JAC determined how many hours the defense had gone over its allotment. In other words, the defense will have 100 hours to use moving forward.
Perry also heard a motion from the defense asking for reimbursement of experts' travel expenses.
Baez said that the travel reimbursement requests had already been submitted to the JAC, but the requests were denied because there was no judge's order on the matter. Baez said he was requesting an order from Perry.
Perry replied that he would not issue an order without seeing exactly how much money Baez was requesting reimbursement for.
Another hearing will take place in the case on Monday afternoon. WESH.com will have live coverage of the hearing.

More time granted to Anthony defense



Updated: Tuesday, 14 Dec 2010, 8:19 PM EST
Published : Tuesday, 14 Dec 2010, 8:19 PM EST



  • By Holly Bristow
    FOX 35 News

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Chief Judge Belvin Perry on Tuesday ordered that the Justice Administrative Commission (JAC) will have to fund an additional 110 hours for Casey Anthony's private investigator. That's on top of the hours submitted by the PI.
Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, said the defense needs their private investigator to investigate 115 more state witnesses. The judge approved those 110 additional hours, but he said he does not believe the JAC will pay for everything on the invoices that the defense has been submitting.
The judge warned the state does not pay private investigators to perform tasks that can be handled by a secretary or paralegal.
"Mr. Baez, such things as picking up records, defense team meetings and there is a list for transcripts and such things and making request for public records these are things that under guidelines for JAC they more than likely will not be reimbursable costs at tax payers," said Judge Perry.
Casey's defense team also asked the judge to sign off on travel expenses for some of their out of state expert witnesses. The judge said he will not do that until he see in writing exactly what the travel is for and what it will cost tax payers.
Anthony, 24, is charged with first-degree murder in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Marie. She has pleaded not guilty, claiming a babysitter kidnapped her toddler. Caylee was last seen in June of 2008, but she was not reported missing until a month later. Her remains were found in woods near the family's home in December 2008.
Her murder trial is set to start next May.

First on cfnews13.com - New documents reveal Casey Anthony's defense strategy



By Adam Longo, Reporter
Last Updated: Wednesday, December 15, 2010 11:45 AM


More Info







ORLANDO --
New documents shed light on the defense's strategy in the Case Against Casey.
Casey Anthony's defense team Wednesday is revealing a great deal about their defense strategy, attempting to vindicate the young mother.

  • You can read the new documents here. (pdf)

On Friday, Chief Judge Belvin Perry ordered that lawyers for the prosecution and defense turn over information about expert witnesses who could potentially be called to testify in the case.
Late Tuesday evening, Anthony's lawyers filed a list of 12 experts with the court.
Additionally, the defense team included information that each witness would either discuss or be called to rebut a prosecution expert witness.
For example, defense expert Dr. Werner Spitz was hired by the defense to conduct a second autopsy on Caylee Anthony, which was completed Dec. 24, 2008.
The documents filed indicate, "He [Dr. Spitz] conducted a second autopsy on the decedent and found no signs of trauma and could not find a cause of death."
Spitz would also potentially rebut the testimony of Orange County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Jan Garavaglia, who conducted the initial autopsy on Caylee Anthony.
Another expert would be used by the defense to try to block a report from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory from becoming heard in the case.
Scientists from ORNL prepared a report for the Orange County Sheriff's Office that indicated the presence of decompositional odors in the trunk of Casey Anthony's car.
Defense expert Barry Logan, according to the defense filing would, "disagree with the methodology employed by the Oak Ridge Laboratory in their 'forensic report'."
Logan would also testify that the ORNL science is "not recognized in the scientific community".

Phone Hearing Phunk: Casey Anthony Gets More Investigative Funds


UPDATE!
December 15, 2010

The defense filed two responses to the motion to compel evidence today. Here is one just released by the media. It contains the information asked for by Judge Perry. Note that it is signed the 14th but not submitted until the 15th. This is a "sneak peak" copy.


Article:
cfnews13

*************************************************************************************

I wasn't around for the hearing, and it didn't seem to matter. The only coverage came from WESH tweets. However, they did just post an article.

From what I read, the defense has received more investigative hours to check out the 110 witnesses that Jose Baez doesn't feel need to be investigated. The exact amount of hours is up for grabs at this point as the JAC is still trying to figure out how many hours haven't been paid. It sounds like a paper work nightmare to me at this point. I'm hearing 110 hours so far.

As for the travel expenses, Baez claimed that he applied for reimbursement from the JAC and the JAC wanted a court order. Judge Perry wants to see the paperwork before he writes that order.

Judge Perry also noted that some of the expenses already submitted to the JAC may not be reimbursable (FOX Live News)

Confused? LOL! So am I.

I also wonder if Baez has complied with the judge's order to supply discovery for Dr. Brock and Dr. Fairgrieve. The deadline was today.

Meanwhile, we have another hearing on Monday, December 20, at 1:30 PM. We are supposed to hear the Finnell motion to seal the names of mitigation witnesses. I have to wonder if any other standing motions will be heard while they are all together in the courtroom.

Come on back and visit later as I learn more about the hearing and what has happened! Consider this a "running blog"!

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Documents filed Wednesday in the case against Casey Anthony could reveal part of the defense's strategy. They detail what the defense expert witnesses will testify about.




READ: Defense Expert Info | Defense Expert Exhibits




The defense had fought the release of this information, despite having been ordered by Judge Belvin Perry to do so earlier. Instead, the defense had only provided the prosecution with a list of experts and their field of expertise.

After being ordered, again, by Judge Perry to provide specifics on what the defense experts would actually be testifying on, attorney Jose Baez filed a more detailed response that gives bullet-points on 12 different experts and elements of what they'll testify on.

The experts include a medical examiner, Dr. Werner Spitz, who conducted the second autopsy on Caylee and found no signs of trauma

Caylee/Casey Anthony Case: Casey Anthony’s Defense Has Gone To The Dogs

Posted by Blink | Blink,Casey Anthony,Caylee Anthony Case,Cheney Mason,Cindy Anthony,Dana Pretzer Show,George Anthony,Jeff Ashton,John Allen,John Morgan,Jose Baez,Lee Anthony,Linda Drane Burdick,Mark Nejame,Murdered | Wednesday 15 December 2010 7:46 pm

As previously reported on blinkoncrime.com, the hearing last week ordering Jose Baez and his defense team to submit specific information regarding their expert witnesses, has gone to the dogs.
Woof!
Dr. Fairgrieve, a forensic anthropologist and expert witness listed for the defense, intends to testify that Casey Anthony should have the right to confront her accuser.
Novel, appropriate, good news.
In this instance, one of her accusers with fur, according to her defense attorney, is named Gerus. The other, Bones.

For starters, if the summary of Dr. Fairgrieve’s findings is accurate as presented in this filing, I recommend as a practical matter, he identify exactly what “alerts” he is seeking to debunk.
There are several, all of which are well documented.




Orange County sheriff’s investigator Carlos Padilla told reporters, “We had two different dogs from two different counties that hit on the same exact spot.”


Evidence Bay with a closed car:

Casey Anthony’s Car: Detectives reported a different dog alerted to the same strong smell in the trunk after the white Pontiac had been abandoned in a parking lot.
“They have a hypothesis that the child may have somehow passed away,” Dr. Richard Weinblatt told Eyewitness News.


It is undoubtedly the recent work of Dr. Fairgrieves in a case involving a murdered man, Robert Wone, that got the attention of Jose Baez and his Scheme-Team.
In a successful inlimine motion, Fairgrieves offered testimony in the supporting affidavit that suppressed canine evidence in the Robert Wone murder.
The three male house mates of Mr. Wone were acquitted of the charges they faced as a result, which were not for his murder. The prosecutor himself could not prove his actual cause of death. The trio are currently facing a wrongful death action by the desceadent’s family.

“My role in the case is basically peer review,” Fairgrieve told the Orlando Sentinel. “I will be reviewing reports on the evidence. So far everything I’ve done has been remotely.” Scott Fairgrieve, MD

The ole probative vs. prejudicial argument is not unexpected in this case, I get it.
However, two different cadaver dogs, from two different counties, hit in the same area under or near Caylee’s playhouse. This was AFTER the alerts in the evidence bay on the car trunk, and both searches were conducted with permission from the Anthonys.
That would be the car trunk that produced one latent lift from the accused in this case, Casey Anthony.
Under Dr. Fairgrieve’s theory of “necessary corroboration”, we, in fact, have exactly that.
The hairs that were found in the trunk, including the hair with the “signs of decomposition” corroborate the canine’s alert as well as the report from Oak Ridge Labs.
Let us not forget, that a statement from the car’s owner and material witness in this case, concurs with the presence of decomposition in the damn car.
Reached late this afternoon prior to his Canine Christmas Mixer, www.blinkoncrime.com caught up with Gerus:


Seriously, that dude has my dander up daily. He needs to stay out from under my collar.
I know what I am doing at my job. And by the way, who is calling who a TOOL?
You tell that *My Cousin Vinny wanna be* that he should take his unearned legal hubris and shove it, where in my line of work, I don’t have to sniff.
Unlike him.
Speaking of hubris, a message to George-
The headline is not going to read ” Casey Anthony Not Guilty of Murder By Hereditary Hubris”
It is going to read..
“Apparent Shared Hubris Defect Cause for Casey Anthony to Blame Father in Caylee’s Death.”
Be like a burger and flip already. It’s all you got.

ps. “Shared Hubris Defect” is mine, J to the B.

CASEY ANTHONY: MORE BUCKS FOR "REASONABLE DOUBT"?






The judge in the pretrial hearings of accused murder mom CASEY ANTHONY allowed the defense team to submit a bill for additional state funding to an investigator [color:e6af=blue !important][color:e6af=blue !important]working the case.

At a hearing yesterday, Chief Judge Belvin Perry granted 110 hours of additional work for investigation, the defense already billed for roughly 120 hours more than previously approved.

Since Anthony, 24, has been ruled indigent i.e. broke, the State of Florida has been footing the bill for any additional investigation defense attorney Jose Baez had requested.

He told Perry the defense still needs to interview about 110 witnesses. That work falls to the investigator.

"We have to do our due diligence," Baez said. "The state has listed EVERY ONE as a Category A witness."

The Orlando Sentinel reported that the additional expenses sere submitted were for visits by expert medical witnesses for the defense. Several doctors traveled to Orlando to examine key forensic evidence at the [color:e6af=blue !important][color:e6af=blue !important]Orange [color:e6af=blue !important]County Sheriff's Office.

Defense attorney Baez also said he needs an order from Judge Perry for those expenses so he can properly submit bills with the state.

"You can get an order when I see the details," Judge Perry said.

"No one is staying at the Ritz or booking first class," Baez responded.

"I will pay for them, but I've got to know what I'm paying for," the judge told the court, telling Baez to provide proper expense documentation.

Casey is charged with first-degree murder in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. She faces a possible [color:e6af=blue !important][color:e6af=blue !important]death [color:e6af=blue !important]sentence

if convicted.

The sensational murder trial is still docketed for May, 2011.

Casey Anthony letter to jail pal deals with ID of Caylee's dad


Anthony also said she is having seizures in jail


Compiled by Orlando Sentinel



9:24 a.m. EST, December 17, 2010




Just-released evidence in the Casey Anthony case include letters from Anthony to a woman she befriended in jail about paternity tests that were taken to determine the identity of Caylee's father.
The letter says at least one person – one of Casey Anthony's former boyfriends – was ruled out as the father.
It doesn't appear as if Casey named the father in the letter addressed to then-Orange County Jail inmate Robyn Adams.
Anthony also rehashes a version of what she said happened to her daughter – a story investigators have said is not true – that the young mother gave Caylee to nanny named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, and that the two later vanished.
The girl's remains were found in December 2008 in a vacant lot a short walk from the family's home in east Orange County. Investigators say Anthony killed the little girl.

Other details released today include letters from Anthony complaining about having seizures in jail.
Such handwritten letters from Anthony to Adams have been released in the past. Investigators learned that while together at the Orange County Jail, Adams and Anthony secretly wrote each other letters and had clandestine chats.
Adams, a convicted drug dealer, is now in federal prison. The two exchanged notes -- sometimes every other day -- through a book, Do Away With August.
Other evidence released today includes photos, video and audio recordings.
At least some of the images on a DVD released this morning appear as if they were pulled from someone's Myspace.com account. It's unclear whose account they are from or why they are significant.
The release is yet another step for the defense and prosecution they gear up for the start of next year's trial against the Orange County woman accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter in 2008.
Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in connection to the death of her daughter, Caylee Marie. This is a breaking news story. Check back later for updates

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Evidence released by prosecutors in the case against Casey Anthony on Friday includes a photo of George Anthony with the woman who claimed the two had an affair.


River Cruz said in March she became intimately involved with George Anthony after Caylee Anthony's disappearance.
Cruz said her phone contained pictures and text messages that she said was evidence of the affair.
Cruz also claimed that George Anthony said the death of his granddaughter was "an accident that snowballed out of control."
George Anthony's lawyer at the time, Brad Conway, said the affair never happened. He said authorities were investigating the claims.




March Interview With River Cruz


"The Sheriff's Office is doing an investigation. They're thorough. They're serious about this, and they're going to interview and take statements from anybody that has information relevant to the death of Caylee Anthony," Conway told WESH 2 News in March.
The evidence released on Friday contains photos, text messages and the contact information that the Orange County Sheriff's Office dumped off of a Samsung phone earlier this year.

It's not clear whom the phone belongs to, but the photos from the phone include images of Cruz with George and Cindy Anthony.
One of the text messages from the phone is from a number listed in the contacts as George Anthony. The text message from Dec. 19, 2008, said, "Just thinking about you! I need you in my life."
Remains were found off of Suburban Drive on Dec. 11 of that year. The remains were identified as Caylee Anthony's on Dec. 19.
