     “Aren’t you asking me to reinvent the wheel?” Judge Strickland questioned.

     That statement by Judge Strickland was as close to an explanation he was going to give regarding the latest set of motions by Casey Anthony’s defense team. Casey Anthony will face all of the charges for cashing checks. In my opinion she is lucky there are only nine counts. If her grandmother and her own mother added their losses to her spending spree she would be facing more than that. She didn’t have any concern for anyone or anything while she was draining others bank accounts for over a year so why should she be shown any sympathy?

     I have long assumed that the defense is attempting to get all other charges dismissed or delayed so their client can begin her murder trial with no record of prior convictions, yet I believe come the end of January 2010 Miss Casey will have a record.

     Strickland also denied the motion to destroy the videos of Casey Anthony while she visits with her attorney and family. This was a longshot to say the least. Everyone is videotaped in the jail and yet in true Casey fashion we are  to believe that she deserves to be above that? Not so much. It has long been argued that the entire Anthony family seems to believe they do not have to follow the rules, so of course Casey wouldn’t think she would have to follow the rules of the correctional system. Yet what exactly is it that she believes she has done to deserve special treatment? While I do believe that she revels a bit in her “celebrity” status, sadly she doesn’t seem to realize that the notariety she has received is not from doing something great,not for  aiding the world in any way, and certainly not for  being a positive role model for young girls. Casey Anthony has grabbed the attention of this world because she killed her own daughter. She did the unthinkable, the unimaginable, and the unforgivable. Furthermore, she refused and still refuses to aid in any way in the investigation, yet maintains her innocence. However, her actions, the evidence and reports say otherwise.

    Any mother who is like most mothers knows what it is like to carry a child for nine months and have that child placed in your arms the moment they enter this great big world. There are not enough words to describe that feeling, there is no other love that compares. No marriage, relationship or family love is even able to be measured against it. The day that most mothers become mothers, the only one sure thing in this life is that they will protect that child at any cost.

     Yet Casey Anthony isn’t like most mothers. She never grasped the beauty of these miraculous little creatures that we are given, never understood what a gift they are, never realized that she was given the opportunity to do something greater than any accomplishment in this life. Raise a child, teach a child, love a child and receive that unconditional love that children give to us without question.

    The biggest motion of interest of course was taking the death penalty charge away. I didn’t believe for one minute that Strickland would allow it, and after Ashtons theory of Caylees final moments, I was more certain than ever that yes she deserves the death penalty. Strickland ruled that she will face the death penalty as her possible sentence and again further verified for me that the right person is being held accountable. Possibly for the first time in her life.

     I am unable to come to a decision as far as figuring out the defense attorneys. Are they that unskilled? Are they that pompus that they think they will out talk the state and get their way if they file a hundred thousand motions? Do they really know what they are doing? Do they see what I see? A case that is falling apart before their eyes and most is due to their own inconsitancies? In the very beginning of this case they put themselves in a corner with the “Nanny” theory and when they backtracked and began to insinutate that Roy Kronk could have killed Caylee, they did nothing more than make themselves appear inept. Andrea Lyon dug her hole in her released audio and though she will not comment on it, anyone who heard it and could be a potential juror will go into this case with a picture of her that is not very becoming. Sure they can be instructed to disregard it , but can you really?  It was said long ago that by announcing the “Nanny” theory they hung themselves, that they would have to stick to that strategy or risk the entire case. I hope Casey Anthoy understands…. They risked the entire case, therefore risking her life. Does she understand that their claims have never been backed up, that their supposed problem with this case being tried in the media is mostly their own doing? The state doesn’t do interviews, press conferences and so on. The state is waiting to try their case and after the little glimpse we have been given by Ashton, I would say the defense should be very worried.

    Judge Strickland also ruled in favor of the prosecution intheir motion to seal the record of the illegal recording from the Equisearch volunteer. He apparently gave two different accounts of his ‘search” for Caylee. I truthfully didn’t even think about this motion as I really didn’t believe the stories fromt hese volunteers. There is still no way that they all of a sudden remembered being  right there. Tim Miller is a respected man and has been forthcoming during his search, specifically when he stated that he was unable to search that area due to the water. To say that he lied is to say that a year and a half ago he knew Caylee would have been there, or that he knew someone was going to put her there after Casey was incarcerated… Doesn’t add up to me.

     George and Cindy were on the “Today” show again and in no shocking surprise maintain their support for Casey. In George’s own words: “I don’t believe my daughter could hurt anyone, I really don’t believe that. I don’t believe Cindy and I could bring someone into this world who would want to hurt somebody, especially their own daughter,”  Cindy also commented stating: “I can’t accept what I’ve been told, because I don’t believe they’ve done a full investigation, and I would like them to continue to do so. There’s a lot of evidence out there that has not been looked into,”

    I beleive wholeheartedly that what they are saying is indeed how they feel. How can they believe that their own daughter is capable of this? How can they begin to process that and not have a mental breakdown? I have never personally been in this situation or anything remotely close to this situation, and yet I assume that if Ihad to look at one of my sons as being a cold calculated murderer, much less as the one who murdered his own child, my grandchild, my mind would take me to place I would never want to be. Cindy claiming that a full investigation has never been done helps her not come to that conclusion. Just as the defense is trying to cast doubt in the minds of potential jurors, they have been able to cast doubt in Cindys mind. If she believes that Casey is a target of a personal attack by law enforcement then she has an explanation as to why her daughter is behind bars, why the investigation stopped and why nobody else is being arrested. This theory allows her to hold on to that hope that Casey could not have done this. It also allows her to not put the guilt on herself for not holding her accountable as a child for anything, for fixing her mistakes, and for forcing her to be a mother.

     What they don’t seem to see about their daughter is that she was willing to take anyone down with her that she could. Claims that her brother sexually molested her and those claims led to him being forced to take a lie detector test and DNA tests done to exclude him from possibly being the father of Caylee. Claims that her mother tried to make Caylee call her mommy instead of Casey, claims that her father (although in a round about way) also molested her. They fail to see that the next people who the defense may raise suspicion on is them. In a way they already have, stating that while those searches on the computer are fact, it doesn’t make Casey the one who did them. It only states that someone in that house searched those things and she was not the only one who used the computer. These are the things they need to pay attention to. The evidence is not their job, the investigators obviously have all they need. Andrea Lyon claims that the state is seeking the death penalty in a way to either get a more bised jury or to make Casey cop to a plea deal. However last time I checked Casey hasn’t been offered a deal. If the state didn’t have solid evidence and testimony to back that evidence up, the death penalty would have never come back. Furthermore, they don’t need a deal, they have what they need. The rest is just details…..

On Nov 6th 2100 more pages of documents were released and there was a lot of interesting information that contradicts the defense’s latest claim that Caylee was placed in the woods after Casey was already incarcerated. The defense continually places themsleves in a position where they are going to find that they are backed into a corner. They are making too many claims that are easily disproven by science and their only responses are to question the science itself.

The reports contain many details about the decomposition found in the trunk. It appears as though they have “coffin flies” which are present when there is decomp. In the testing they are able to narrow down the timeline and have concluded that somewhere between June19 and June 22 is when the body was removed from the trunk. This now contradicts what the defense is claiming as to Caylee being placed in the woods in August.

The Gatorade bottle that had brown liquid and a syringe was tested and is positive for chloroform and testosterone. Now they cannot of course say it was Casey Anthony who was in posession of this bottle but I find it rather odd that chloroform was searched, traces were found in the trunk, and now it mysteriously appears at the site of where Caylee was found. Sure it is just speculation but if I were on the jury I would find that information very telling.

There were tests done on the knife found in Casey’s car and there was a sticky residue found but could not be concluded that it was from the duct tape. If I am correct didn’t Cindy state that she washed the knife and put it back in the silverware drawer? Wouldn’t this somehow destroy some of the properties?

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/breakingnews/os-casey-anthony-documents-20091106,0,4673834.story

There were also new photos released with this latest dump.The are not labeled and some are hard to figure out but they include: The plastic bag and syringe, The Gatorade Bottle, A picture from the video we have all seen of Caylee and Casey playing, Caylee’s doll, The Whitney Laundry Bag ( I believe this one is the one found at the house),On the 9th page of the photo gallery is what appears to be a sheet or blanket? I am not sure what this is but surmise that it is probably the match to an item found at the crime scene. The other pages are filled with images I assume are from the crime scene. If anyone has more information I would greatly appreciate it to know what I am looking at.

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/breakingnews/os-pictures-casey-anthony-evidence-110609,0,6944489.photogallery

The only emotion I was filled with when looking at these pictures was sadness. The doll photograph really bothered me. I don’t know if it because all along the one thing that was said was that Caylee would never go anywhere without that doll. So, I felt like it was her one security and sadly in whatever horrific moments she endured, she was without it.

Jose Baez when asked what the evidence of chloroform being present does to his case answered: “It’s insignificant” he stated that the same amount of chloroform could be found in tap water so he does not have any worries about it. As usual he made a little slam saying “I’m sure it made a great headline, it was blown out of proportion.” Funny, when it is something that seems to have a huge impact ont he case he never finds it very important…

Lee Anthony’s girlfriend was deposed on Thursday and I will be very interested to see what that interview said. Lee Anthony arrived at the courthouse looking very busy on his phone texting. He never spoke just walked by with his smug as usual look.

There is a play that is supposed to be released in Austrailia by Steven Soderburgh called “Tot Mom”. By running the play in Austrailia the family will not have to be compensated at all. It is said on the website that all proceeds are being donated to The Center For Missing and Exploited Children and that he will make no profit from this production. It is to be done in a documntary form and include excerpts from Nancy Grace. I don’t know how I feel about t his, just as I did not know how I felt about the book being done. I guess I feel as though these things are being done too early? I still haven’t gotten the book so I am not sure, maybe it will be a good read.

It was reported that a fellow inmate stated that upon Casey Anthony hearing about the play she screamed “ARE YOU FING KIDDING ME? GET MY LAWYER NOW”  While I never really take anything from the National Enquirer as the bible I can almost see this as her reaction…

http://www.sydneytheatre.com.au/2009/tot-mom

There are supposed to be more documents released this upcoming week. I am not sure what they are supposed to contain but I read that it is only 40 pages. Dominic Casey has again gotten his depostion postponed and it supposed to be in December.

Unfortunately I don’t feel like we are any closer to justice for Caylee, but I do at least feel that with each piece of evidence released the right person is sitting in jail…

   JUDGE STRICKLAND RULES ON MOTION TO 

DISMISS MURDER CHARGES   

    The defense previously filed a motion to dismiss the murder charges against Casey Anthony and Judge Strickland ruled on that motion today. As many assumed it was not even considered. However, the defense team has really put it’s foot in it’s mouth this time. They now have until February 1, 2010 to provide evidence that they claim they have showing that someone else placed Caylee’s body in the woods while Casey was in jail.

     The mistakes made in filing this motion  truly makes me wonder if Casey Anthony is the least bit worried that her life is in this teams hands because I would be scared to death. It seems to me that if a lawyer is filing a motion to have a death penalty charge dropped they would dot every I and cross every T twice. Yet they failed to provide the witness list needed to support their claims.

     Linda Drane Burdick ripped the motion apart with the following statement: “It’s a farce. It doesn’t even come close to the legal requirements necessary for the court to even entertain a motion to dismiss, the entire motion, from top to bottom, it is replete with errors, it’s insufficient as a matter of law.”

    When Strickland explained that Casey Anthony had not sworn to the proper and legally required facts necessary to ask him to dismiss Andrea Lyon should have just not spoken. Her argument was not an argument at all. “It cannot be the intent of the Florida legislature that a person swear to something that they do not have personal knowledge of.”

    Jose Baez spoke with Kathi Belich following the hearing and as usual he had something very important to say: 

“Is there gonna be a bombshell on February 1st,” WFTV reporter Kathi Belich asked Casey’s attorney, Jose Baez. “There will be something. There definitely will be something,” Baez said

  **For those of you who are not familiar with Baez and his statements, I will translate this for you: ” I have no idea what the hell I am supposed to do now” **

     In the motion that was made to stop the video recordings of jail visits the defense notified the wrong agency. WHAT?? They were supposed to notify the Orange County Government who has run the jail since 1987 and instead notified the Orange County Sherriffs Office about the hearing. Oh what will they say about that?

***HERE IS A LINK TO STRICKLANDS RULING ON THE MOTION

http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21316613/detail.html

LEE ANTHONY: 

                 TRIAL DATE SET IN CHECK FRAUD CASE

    The defense did not get what they wanted as far as the check fraud trial being delayed until after the murder trial. A while back it was said that by delaying the fraud trial it would be harder for a jury to convict anyone with no prior record. I am not sure who took that poll but I would have no problem convicting Casey Anthony for what she did with or without a prior conviction. It doesn’t matter to me whether she took a million dollars from someone or whether she would have given someone a million dollars, she is still to me a cold hearted murderer.

 

GEORGE, CINDY AND LEE’S TRANSCRIPTS RELEASED

FROM THEIR INTERVIEWS WITH PROSECUTORS

     When the Anthony’s were interviewed by the prosecutors in August this past year they claim that there are many inconsistencies in George’s story. Surprised? Not at all, it seems like the entire family has had many forgetful moments, statements that they didn’t mean, and just out and out lies.

     One thing he did state and I believe he was telling the truth is that he never asked Casey about the incident involving Caylee. His reason being they all believed the house was bugged. So what if he thought the house was bugged! Isn’t he the one who wanted to know no matter what or who exactly what happened to his grand daughter? Yet here we see another attempt to coddle and protect Casey. My only hope is that the obstruction charges aren’t being filed until after this whole mess is over, but are definately being considered. Here are the links to the transcripts from the interviews:

GEORGE:    http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21310228/detail.html

  ** FINALLY! While everyone knew the Anthony’s were profiting from this horrible tragedy, George admits that the family has taken thousands of dollars from interviews and that Brad Conway is negotiating a book deal.  I have alot of thoughts about this but I will leave you to have your own…

CINDY:   http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21310276/detail.html

                  http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21310288/detail.html

     ***Interesting little piece of information I thought: Cindy admits that she never saw the trunk of the car that supposedly had rotten pizza and maggots in it. She claims that she got that information from George. hmmm

LEE ANTHONY:http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21310241/detail.html

 

All in all it wasn’t a great day for the defense. They did win the motion to have the images of the crime scene and autopsy copied to give to their experts. However, I did find Strickland to be extra cautious and was infatic about his concern that those photos would be released or leaked. Baez assured him that the only ones who will see them are those who need to, even stating that those on the defense team that had nothing to do with that portion of the investigation would not see them.

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

GEORGE AND CINDY 48 HOURS INTERVIEW

     If you have followed this case from the beginning, you have learned by now that the interviews advertised as exclusive and promising never before answers to questions in this case are nothing more than another payday for all of those involved.

     The latest interview hosted by 48 hours was the same interview we have heard over and over. This time the defense team joined the Anthonys and Brad Conway was also present. The defense team continues to state that the prosecution is leaking information and trying this case in the media. Yet again it is the defense team sitting infront of the cameras not the state. I don’t understand how it is that the defense continues to whine and moan that the case is being tried in the media and yet they continue to give interviews…

     It has been reoprted that the Anthony’s were paid 20,000.00 for licensing fees, Brad Conway 3,000.00 for who knows what and I have not heard anything about the defense. Yet I wonder if in fact the Anthony’s was only a cut of the licensing fees as I seem to remember the last licensing fee for ohotos was 250,000.00.So although I am speculating I just wonder if the fee was higher and being used to fund the defense…

   It appears as though the Anthony’s along with Lee and Mallory continue to struggle while not being able to find work due to the meda coverage in this case. In fact they struggled so much that they decided to go on a  cruise while the 48hours interview aired. When asked about the crusie Cindy Anth0ny replied to WFTV: YOU GUYS PAID FOR THE TRIP” She then of course was her usual snipppity self and said” THANKS FOR RUINING OUR TRIP!” 

     All in all there was of course nothing new to report in the case, there was however, lots of continued denial, blame, and whining…. My only hope is one day this will be about Caylee…

     Brad Conway, the attorney for George and Cindy Anthony sat down with reporters to give a press conference based on what has recently been released by the Sate.

  http://www.wftv.com/video/21160739/index.html  

I guess my first thought on this would be: WHY? Brad Conway is the attorney for the parents , not for Casey Anthony. Why is he sitting down and disecting the documents one by one? If he is in fact only representing the Anthony Grandparents, he has no business going on tv to discredit or give credit to anyone involved in the criminal trial. The Anthony’s continue to cry out that their daughter is already prosecuted and the case is being tried in the media. Yet, isn’t that what the are doing? AGAIN? Jose Baez of course cannot go on and give a press conference as he continues to accuse the State of leaks, yet if he instructs Conway to do the press conference then I guess it is okay?

* One of the most telling statements had nothing to do at all with the documents but one that I find amusing. Brad Conway was commenting onthe attorneys involved in this case and stated: (slightly out of context) “THE STATES ATTORNEY’S OFFICE HAS EXCELLENT ATTORNEYS, AND THE DEFENSE TEAM HAS (PAUSE) A A VERY  GOOD TEAM. ” hmm does Conway even question their ability?

     There were some moments during the video that caught my attention. When asked about the claim that Brad Conaway has made regarding a foreign hair that could not be identified from the car he adamantly stated that yes there was a hair that was not identified as Caylee or Caseys. Now my understanding of that report was that it was identified but not enough to say which one it was. When pressed further about this Conway backed off, saying he didn’t have the paper so he couldn’t comment on it.

     Of course the duct tape issue came up and he is stating that the reports are saying they are not alike at all when the earlier report  said they were. According to Bill Schaeffer, the duct tape that was found on Caylee would have broken down in the elements and therefore the argument that they are not the same is mute.

     A reporter asked Conway about the emails exchanged between Cindy and Dominic in which it appears that she is trying desperately to dig up dirt on Kronk. The reporter asked if she was emnarrassed that those documents were released. He gave an answer of when there is an active investigation going on you investigate everyone. Not really a good answer but I didn’t really expect them to say that yes Cindy was so embarrassed that these are out. Another interesting little piece of info was that the search continues for Zenaida Gonzales in Puerto Rico, and that when an reporter asked if they are interfering with the State or proper authorities investigation, Conway answered that he didn’t know if they are investigating anything.

There are good questions raised all throughout the press conference and although I am sure this was done to put speculation in peoples minds, I feel no different than I did before this. ISNT THIS POTENTIAL JURY TAINTING?

     Bill Schaeffer commented on the Anthony’s claims that the new document does nothing.http://www.wftv.com/video/21160739/index.html

SURPRISE! NEW MOTIONS…

     As it has come to be expected the Defense Team files new motions today. The first one being to Toss the Capital Murder Charge against Casey along with the aggrivated child abuse charge.  In doing so it would also toss the death penalty. In the motion the defense claims that there is no evidence that Caylee was harmed in any way: SHES DEAD, YES THERE IS, AND I FOR ONE DO NOT BELIEVE THE DEFENSE HAS SHOWN THERE IS NO EVIDENCE.  They also claim that she was proven to be a good and caring mother: LET’S REFER BACK TO THE COMPUTER MAN AND HIS ACCOUNT, THAT IS JUST ONE PERSON…

http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21163520/detail.html

     The second motion is of course one to preclude the death penalty. In the reasons cited the defense claims that the prosecution harbors bad faith motives against the defendant. ( AGAIN EVERYONE IS OUT TO PIN THIS ON CASEY RIGHT) They also cite that the prosecution does not have enough to  have a Capital Murder charge.

     The fourth reason given states that the prosecution cannot prove that Miss Anthony committed capital murder because the defendant stood in a familial or custodial authority over the victim. ( OH I THINK THEY CAN…)

    The defense also claims that even if they are able to prove that Casey Anthony is guilty of murdering Caylee they cannot impose the death penalty because they cannot say “how” she died . ( WELL I GUESS IF CASEY WOULD HAVE BEEN STRAIGHT FORWARD AND SHE COULD HAVE BEEN FOUND EARLIER THEN IT COULD BE PROVEN BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT THAT CASEY DIDN’T DO IT)

  http://www.wftv.com/pdf/21163542/detail.html

     Did I miss something after the last motion was filed? Did the judge rule on the motion to dismiss all charges against her? If not then why are they filing these motions without the other being heard? I am not sure so if you have any information on that I would greatly appreciate it.

STAY TUNED I AM SURE THIS IS JUST GETTING INTERESTING….

     There were over a 1000 documents released today including numerous emails between Cindy Anthony and Dominic Casey, lab results, interviews, tips and so on. While I of course cannot post the entire 1000+pages , I will post links and give my thoughts as to what stood out and grabbed my attention.

*THE FIRST 100 PAGES: http://www.clickorlando.com/download/2009/0929/21146565.pdf

  *Page 2:    An email that was sent to Lee Anthony from a Cindy in Texas listing all the reasons that she believes that Casey and Cindy are telling the truth about Zenaida G. I was amazed at how this woman was able to “twist” the circumstances to make them bend in Casey’s favor. The most outlandish statement of the email was one where she refers to the “flurry” of phone calls that we are all aware Casey made on the 17th. Now we all have our own thoughts on what these seemingly desperate attempts to contact Cindy or George were but this one is by far the most amusing:                                                                                               ****It seems as though this woman believes that the flurry of phone calls on the 17th was Casey desperate to find a sitter and when she was unable to reach anyone she “settled” for this Zenaida to watch her.

  *Page 5:        Dominic Casey was interested in Lee Anthony doing an internship with him.  I was unable to find out if there was ever an agreement or if Lee ever did in fact begin working with him.

*Page19:    In an email to Lee Dominc asks him to check into Will and refers to a visit on 7/29/08. If I am reading this correctly it appears that he asked Casey who Will was and his response to Lee was : ” Obvious answer, a friend! Interesting” Sounds like Mr. Casey was already a little fed up with Ms. Casey 🙂  The conversation continues on page 20 with Lee answering Dominic’s question about finding out who Brittney is as Will spoke about her in his blog. Lee’s answer was: ” I sure know who Brittney sounds like to me ” I wonder what that meant. He listed a link to the myspace page he referred to and although I have not gone back to check I am sure it is one we have seen before as these are conversations from September of 2008. I also found it amusing that the people Dominic refers to as the  ” Index of Players” (ex: Nate, Will, Ricardo) are accused of seeking their 5 minutes of fame… Hmmm, “Hi Pot have you met Kettle?”

*Page 29:  This is a picture of the Zenaida that Dominic has located and has asked Cindy to see if they are able to get it to Casey for a positive ID. Now I don’t know about anyone elses thoughts but this woman is a little too hot to be a Nanny and furthermore it looks like a picture from a professional photographer. Just thinking aloud…

PAGE 34:    HUMBLES BLOG HAS MADE IT INTO THE EVIDENCE.  Apparently they do read on the internet as Cindy forwarded Humbles post about Michelle Bart to her. They are claiming that Humble was posing as Michelle Bart… We all know that was not the case. The post referred to was the one where Humble posed questions to Michelle Bart. Now I have to ask her to refresh my memory but I am not sure if she answered them or another poster. Either way, is this helping find Caylee??

Another few little interesting tidbits from these first pages:

  • On pg 46 Cindy sends an email to D. Casey asking if the media and States Attorney Office can be introuble for leaking the grand jury hearing about Casey. ( Now I think we all know where the leaks come from)
  • page 48 it seems as though they are really tring to discredit Kronk
  • The remaining are all leads, people they are looking into and on more than occasion Cindy does seem to be focusing on Jesse and Ricardo, although individually.

THE NEXT 100 PAGES: http://www.clickorlando.com/download/2009/0929/21146581.pdf

     Alot of the same kind of emails between Cindy and Dominic. They definately do not like Richard Grund. Also some  other interesting pages:

  • Pages 13-17 are Dominic Casey’s list of people to be cautious of for the memorial service. Surprisingly Leonard Padilla is on there. More humorusly is Nancy Grace. Wow these people really do think they are above all.
  • Page 18 is an email in which Dominic tells Cindy that he found out Jessica D’onfrio is having an affair with a detective. Good PI work, definately helping to bring Caylee home.
  • Pages 27 and 28 are filled with coorespondance from a Deborah Millikan in which she claims she has very priviledged information of how Zenaida Gonzales is scamming. She also asks to not reveal her identity as she is acting in the utmost confidence. Hmm… wonder how that went.

The emails continue along with searches for Zenaida Gonzales.

THE NEXT 65 PAGES: http://www.clickorlando.com/download/2009/0929/21146692.pdf

This is a continuation with searches for Zenaida Gonzales in numerous states and there is also a letter from Dominic Casey to Jose Baez terminating their agreement.

SEVEN PAGES OF INFORMATION ON THE DUCT TAPE: THE BRAND, SALES AND SO ON. http://www.clickorlando.com/download/2009/0929/21146648.pdf

ANNIE DOWNING INTERVIEW WITH LE: http://www.clickorlando.com/download/2009/0929/21146722.pdf

     I know I have read some of this before but do not believe I have done so in its enitrety. She has seemed credible to me from the beginning, and appears to be heartbroken at the relaization that her best friend was someone she did not know at all. I thin she was truly shocked to hear that Casey was making her out to be some sort of a dealer for Xanax and believe her when she says she never gave her any pills. She doesn’t like Jesse yet her reasoning is the way he approached her in the days following the realization that Caylee was missing.

She speaks of the Anthony’s acting as though they believed the house was bugged and Casey’s statement about I have so much to tell you when this is all over.

I do believe that although she didn’t have alot of information about Caylee’s disappearance her testimony will be valuable. She confirmed Casey lying about working to go out and Cindy calling to basically say come home and take care of your daughter, Casey was with her the day Cindy called and found out about the credit card charges, although at the time she believed that Cindy was mad that Casey didn’t register for school.

She is a good witness as to the turmoil in the home, the character of Casey (ie: “we all knew she lied all the time”),and I believe her statement about if Casey did this she didn’t do it alone, she was not that smart. speaks volumes.

INTERVIEW WITH JAMES THOMPSON: http://www.clickorlando.com/download/2009/0929/21146711.pdf

     This is very interesting to me. James Thompson owns a computer store that Casey visited with Caylee. He took notice of Casey immediately as she was attractive. He claims Caylee was well behaved and shy and that he was horrified when he gave her a beanie baby for being so good. He said that he could not believe the reaction from Casey, it was one of jealousy. He also saw them the next day at the store and felt sorry for Caylee as she was walking through the parking lot ten feet behind Casey and had to open the door by heself as Casey was walking far ahead of her.

     This is something of importance also: Casey asked to write a check for a new monitor and when he said he couldn’t take checks she said she would have to come back. Hmm…

  MY THOUGHTS AFTER READING :

     I am not any different than anyone else who has been captured by this case since the beginning. I am filled with emotion for a little girl I never knew. Is that because it seems as though nobody else cared about her once the investigation came full circle and on paper she went from a missing child to a murdered child? I don’t know what it is that exactly drew me to this case as there are hundreds of children who go missing daily, and while I always pray for their safe return, Caylee’s case has been one who never leaves my mind for long.

     After reading through all of these documents, I am still amazed at the family dynamics. There is no one throughout this entire thing who took George and Cindy and shook them and said “YOU HAVE TO FACE THE FACT THAT YOUR GRAND DAUGHTER IS NO LONGER HERE BECAUSE HER MOTHER KILLED HER!” As I have seen evidence many times that they do in fact read everything on the internet, at some point would you not weigh the facts, evidence, and most importantly the common sense that is out there? How do you condemn those who have read it all, can see clearly from the outside and want nothing more than a little girl to finally be at peace?Yet are so quick to embrace those who give ridiculous visions and claims of where she is? I can only imagine that we would all like to believe that quite possibly every piece of evidence is wrong were we walking this mile, yet at some point reality has to set in and common sense has to take over. Just like Annie Downing had to realize that the friend she thought she knew was not a friend at all and incapable of being a friend, George and Cindy have to realize that Casey is not the good daughter, loving mother and care taker they thought she was.

To read the items that were collected at the scene was so sad. How do you take a child that you created, and throw her amongst broken beer bottles, trash, and make it someones elses job to sort through it all? How do you say “this is a great place for me to put her to rest?” How as a mother do you find the capability to remove yourself from feeling anything for a little one who counts on you to show her the way?

     I don’t care one bit about the duct tape being destroyed, as far as I am concerned there is a whole lot more that the defense should worry about. The account of the computer store man was enough for me. I can just see Casey walking through the parking lot as if she had not a care in the world and leaving Caylee to fend for herself. That’s the Casey I think we have all come to see throughout this.

     If after reading these documents and I was on the jury, there would be no one able to sway me from GUILTY, AND MOST DEFINATELY THE DEATH PENALTY! CASEY ANTHONY ONLY CARES ABOUT CASEY ANTHONY. EVEN NOW AS THIS IS GOING ON, THE VERY PEOPLE SHE CALLED FRIENDS ARE THE ONES SHE IS WILLING TO LET TAKE THE FALL FOR THIS. SHE IS A COLD HEARTED, MANIPULATIVE PERSON WHO DOES NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO FEEL COMPASSION FOR ANYONE OR ANYTHING.

 It’s been a few weeks since I have been able to post as my computer went down. As usual in the Casey Anthony case a few weeks makes a big difference. They have been busy filing many motions as usual and while I know they have a job to do, and I try my hardest to have an open mind, I can’t help but think they are grasping with every motion they file. Perhaps it is because I believe Baez is too inexperienced and lacks the professionalism to go up against the State in a case of this magnitude. Maybe it is because I have a hard time giving Casey Anthony the benefit of the doubt even though our justice system says we have to. Or quite possibly it is because I want to see justice for a little girl who was unable to defend herself and who will never know the wonder and amazement of this thing called life…

      The defense team for Casey Anthony is busy as usual filing motions. This one is the best yet IMO. It appears as though the defense feels that they have grounds to ask that the case be dismissed due to the lawyers and their experts not being able to examine the crime scene prior to the investigators and Crime Scene Experts removing evidence.

“The motion asserts that the state tampered with Caylee’s remains and the wooded area where she was found, before the defense could bring in its own experts.” ( Examiner)

     Now as I have stated many times before I am not a legal expert nor do I have any background in law. Here is what I do have: COMMON SENSE… I cannot imagine that Strickland will even entertain granting this  motion  as there are some pretty important points that possibly the defense hasn’t thought of:

  •  Though it was collectively agreed upon that yes the remains were those of Caylee Anthony, they had yet to be positively identified through DNA. Therefore, the defense had no right whatsoever to be invited into that crime scene. What if by some slim chance it wasn’t Caylee?
  • How exactly were the CSI experts supposed to examine the evidence without disturbing the topsoil and vegetation?
  • The defense feels that they knew the remains were Caylee’s due to them seeking the search warrant at the Anthony home. Well perhaps even without identification the fact that her mother wrapped her in her own blanket and that blanket happened to match the set at the Anthony home in a prior search that was enough for the warrant?

     In the motion the defense basically calls the State liars and says that they misrepresented to the court that the remains were unknown when they were already aware of the identification. They state that without being able to examine the crime scene prior to sifting through it Miss Anthony was unable to gather evidence… Well I would say that this is whining. I am in awe as to how the defense believes that they had any grounds to go in and search. Or perhaps if I take their wording literally Miss Anthony should have been allowed to go into the crime scene and gather evidence herself? (jk)

     Is it the States fault that they were unable to release the crime scene and that it took longer to process than first expected? NO IT IS CASEY ANTHONY’S FAULT THAT IT TOOK SO LONG.  Perhaps, (let’s just say for grins) Miss Anthony should have thought this entire scenario through before dumping her body there. Perhaps she should have realized that there are animals in the woods that maybe would have found this bag? Or perhaps that is what she was counting on and that didn’t go so well for her.

     From the day Casey Anthony was arrested, her lawyer and parents have argued that she is being victimized by the OCSD. This is really a childish excuse. The OCSD has more to do than look for innocent citizens to pin crimes on. Quite possibly they became tired of Casey Anthony’s antics and are skilled enough in homocide to know when someone is lying. Perhaps they weren’t swayed by Casey batting her eyes, laughing and thinking she’s a star… What if they really are police men and women who are seeking justice for a baby that couldn’t defend herself against this monster, that had her poor little body dumped like garbage, that had to be put back together like a puzzle just to give her a name. Casey Anthony is not now nor has she ever been a victim, Caylee is the victim and although the defense has a job to do, as far as I am concerned the States job is much more important…

Here is a link to read the entire motion to dismiss all charges against Casey Anthony: http://www.examiner.com/x-1168-Crime-Examiner~y2009m9d18-Read-defense-motion-requesting-dismissal-of-murder-charges-against-Casey-Anthony

    A motion to change venue was filed. I am not from Florida so therefore I have no idea where the places mentioned are in proximity to Orlando. However, I am interested to know how many people there are in Florida that have never heard of this case? I live in Michigan and am a hairstylist. I come across many people in one weeks time, and there is not one here who hasn’t heard of Casey Anthony. Marinade Dave is better equipped to answer these questions as he knows Florida in and out. A few of the reasons the defense gives for requesting the change of venue caught my eye and as usual provoked thoughts…

  • “Members of the Orlando community have a strong sense of personal attachment to this case, as envinced by the thousands of people who participated in searches, attended her memorial service and otherwise expressed special concern for the child.
  • The Orlando community is hostile to Miss Anthony. Scores of protesters have demonstrated against Miss Anthony and her family , and online comments and media reports indicate the community believes Miss Anthony desrves to be executed.
  • Internet publications have been particularly inflammatory in this case. Internet publications often fail to adhere to journalism ethics and standards.  

Now to me it appears that the defense is basing most of their argument on the media and internet coverage. Last time I checked the internet is world wide and therefore by stating that the internet publications show that she cannot get a fair trial is to say that she cannot get a fair trial anywhere… I agree so let’s squash that motion! 🙂

     The Orlando community is not the only community hostile towards Casey Anthony. I would like the defense to know that at least in Michigan we are hostile towards Miss Anthony also… AND yes they do believe that she should be executed, as do thousands of other communities.

     The next motion is one in which the defense is asking that all visits between Casey Anthony and her attorney not be subject to video taping. This is a normal practice in the jail and does not include audio. So, why is Jose Baez requesting special treatment? What is he worried about? Perhaps he is doing something wrong during these visits, like allowing Casey to use the laptop to maybe connect with her family? Or maybe she is reading all the stories posted about her online and feeding her ego of being a celebrity? I guess I don’t understand why if there is no audio there is a problem? Here is the link to the motion: http://www.examiner.com/x-1168-Crime-Examiner~y2009m9d18-Read-defense-motion-asking-court-to-bar-jail-from-taping-attorney-visits-with-Casey-Anthony

   The next motion filed is one in where the defense is asking that all videotapes of visits between Casey and her family be destroyed. Apparently her mental health is at stake and she is unable to have the comfort of support from her family that she needs because the videos are released to the media. CITIZENKIM WAS NAMED IN THE MOTION! WHOO HOO WAY TO GO! I KNEW THEY READ THE BLOGS!

I am not sure what I think about this, I am not sure who has the authority here as I don’t know what the protocol is for keeping these tapes. Here is the link: http://www.examiner.com/x-1168-Crime-Examiner~y2009m9d18-Casey-Anthony-case-Read-defense-motion-directing-jail-to-destroy-videos-of-family-visits

    I don’t know how Strickland will rule on these motions but I hope that the dismissal motion will be the one that he gives a reprimand for. It is full of nothing but accusations from the defense. I hope at somepoint Strickland grows tired of hearing all of this from the defense and tells them to stop wasting the courts time.

     Casey Anthony will have to prove her innocence and I am not sure that she will be able to do that. It isn’t about the media trying the case, it is about Casey Anthony’s decision to rid herself of her responsibilities and not thinking any further than the moment. While I don’t believe that her parents are conciously trying to hide anything, I think they are still so desperate to believe that the child that they brought into this world could not be capable of this crime and therefore they react poorly to situations.

     Whatever the outcome of this case, whether be that Casey Anthony is put to death or walks free, it doesn’t change the fact that Caylee Anthony was murdered and disposed of in a cruel and horrible manner. That is what Casey ANthony will be faced with on her judgement day…

     It was said that a new motion was filed prior to the hearing for Casey Anthony on August 21st. Surprised? No… I would be surprised if we went a month without something being filed. This motion is 91 pages and is asking for lab testing, data, and in bold print is basically tattling.

     In a hearing five months ago when Linda Kenny Baden asked for the documents I seem to remember the state saying that all they had to do was request the documents from the FBI. She countered that saying that it has never been done that way and that the State is in posession of these and should turn them over. The motion states:

“Although this original motion was heard nearly five months ago, the State has failed to turn over even one piece of discovery from the FBI and many other experts.The State has failed to turn over items as simple as various witness’ cirriculum vitae.”

     Most of what is being asked for is discovery that we the public have already seen. The tests done on the car, air, chloroform, human decomposition, hair samples, squirrel, carpet, and so on. They are challenging the validity of Oak Science, who performed the various tests stating that they are not a crime lab, but a research lab. (I guess this is where Baez’ junk science statement comes into play)

     Perhaps I should email Mr. Baez and give him the copies we on wordpress have. It seems to me that to take up another day in court with information already released is stupid. It is yet another delay in the case. Obviously these documents have been available, yet Mr. Baez seems to think that they should be hand delivered to him by the prosecution…

Here is a link to the motion:

CINDY ANTHONY GIVES STATEMENT FOLLOWING 8/21 HEARING:

     Following the hearing on Friday in which we saw for the first time Casey Anthony showing some “real” emotion, Cindy Anthony spoke to reporters outside the courthouse. Now before I comment I will say that no matter what her demeanor to the reporters, it will be analyzed and critiqued. I am not going to comment on her hair, outfit or anything else. What I am commenting on is her demeanor.

     She seemed to be so composed, almost happy. She spoke of seeing her daughter as though she just visited her at college. She spoke of the emoitonal exchange between Casey and George and spoke of it as if she were an outsider looking in on this exchange. To me Cindy did not act as a mother who has not seen her child for months, whose child is facing death for killing her grand daughter, whose child is locked in solitary confinement 23 hours a day. She seemed like a mother who just saw her daughter yesterday.

     Perhaps she has been told to stay composed when in court seeing Casey, yet as a mom I cannot imagine having nothing but smiles after not seeing my child for months, let alone seeing them led into the court room in hand cuffs. Now I know had she welled up with tears or broke down she would be criticized for that, yet I wonder if she acts this way because she is able to communicate with Casey through Baez? Furthermore, could it be possible that the Anthony’s are able to visit Casey but perhaps it is at times the media would not be following them? I do not know how the jail visitation works but would they allow them to come only at specific hours or could they request coming in the middle of the night? I know that the jail tapes everything, but would they have to release those ?Just thinking aloud…

JOSE BAEZ MAKES STATEMENT AFTER COURT HEARING:

     Jose Baez spoke briefly after the hearing stating that he had to get Ms. Lyons to the airpot or he would be in trouble. He stated that he would be speaking for the team, which I am not sure is always a good idea.

     Jose Baez stated that he was not going to say anything about the case as he will try the case in the court room not in the media. However, he did give some information regarding Tim Miller: He stated that it isn’t up to anyone to decide  what is relevant, they will decide what is relevant. He also stated that Tim Miller says the area was unable to be searched in November due to water, yet points out that Dominic Casey has video in November where it is dry… (Hmmm….raising reasonable doubt for potential jurors?) When asked about why he was so worried about Leonard Padilla he stated that it is only to cover all bases and protect Casey Anthony as she is innocent. He called the group a ” cast of characters”

     I did find it amusing that he defended himself saying he will only file motions that are necessary….

Here is a link to the video:  http://www.wftv.com/video/20494191/index.html

     One thing I am certain of in this case: It will not be a quick court proceeding and furthermore, IMO I think it will be delayed much further than 2010…

RYAN JENKINS FOUND DEAD IN HOTEL ROOM IN CANADA:

     Ryan Jenkins who has been the subject of a man hunt from the US to Canada as a result of his wife/girlfriend being found in a dumpster mutilated, was found last night hanging from a bar in the closet of the hotel room by a belt.

     Ryan Jenkins and a mysterious woman checked into the Thunderbird Hotel in the town of Hope, famous for where the first Rambo movie was filmed. Adam Curt who is a motel employee and the nephew of the owner stated that Jenkins and the woman arrived Thursday in a PT Cruiser and he stayed in the car while she checked them in. She paid cash for three nights. He stated that she is a woman in her early 20’s who is naturally pretty. Although neither hotel employee saw the woman leave, a tenant in the room next to theirs says she was only at the hotel about 20 minutes.

     Unfortunately for Jasmine Fiore’s family, while his death makes him unable to hurt another woman, it must also enrage them to know that he will never have to face charges for what he did to this beautiful woman.

     On August 13th Jenkins and Fiore checked into a hotel room in San Diego, Jenkins checked out the next day and Fiore was never seen alive again. VH1 who hosts the reality show “Megan Wants” said that they had no knowledge of the prior record he had resulting from assaulting Fiore. He was serving 15months probation for the charge.

     It was said that he has a worth of over 2million dollars. I am sure whoever the woman was that took him to the hotel was paid generously, however, being the only one left involving this case, authorities are currently searching for her. Whether she was a friend or stranger who was hired, I think in the end she will regret her decision to help this monster…
