     It took over a year for Amy Hunzeinga to have Casey Anthony be held accountable for stealing her money. I imagine for Amy it is not the money as much as it is the hurtful realization that someone who you thought was such a good friend turned out to be someone you didn’t even know. I experienced something similar in my own life and although my best friend ( or at least I thought she was) didn’t kill anyone, it is absolutely heart wrenching to have to come to the realization that everything we shared was a lie, and that I never really knew this person with whom I had been joined at the hip for 9 years.

   Casey was given an opportunity to address Amy and did so in a small, tear filled voice. She stated that she was sorry and wished she could have been a better friend. Her voice cracked and there appeared to be tears. However, this new side of Casey leads me to believe that Andrea Lyon is continuing to try and “humanize” her client.Is Casey truly sorry for what she did to Amy, or is she truly sorry that she got caught? While I think alot of things Casey has done, including the murder of her daughter were not well planned out acts, I cannot help but wonder if she was crying out for help when she was stealing Amy’s money? I mean she had to know that it would be a matter of a couple of weeks at most before her friend would know she drained her account. Or perhaps if we take into account the theory that she was planning on going to California to see Mark Hawkins then she would never have had to face her friend.

     The punishment Casey faces now for the use of Amy’s identity is not so bad in actuality. She has credit for time served, probation should she get out of jail. Of course we know that she won’t so that is a mute point. Since the money has already been paid back, she will have to pay the court fees and the fees associated with the investigation into the checks. I also read that a probation officer will visit her in jail although I have to admit I don’t really understand the point of this. Yet I don’t pretend to know the jail system.

     My question is how is Casey supposed to pay the fees incurred? Should she ever get any royalties for anything associated with Caylee would the court have the right to take those royalties until her debt has been paid?

     Jose Baez of course went right to the media immediately following the hearing and again I must point out that nobody from the State was present in any media interviews that day. Of course Baez continues to say that the case is being tried in the media and yet all he has to do is keep walking when they are heading his way.

     So, is this the new Casey Anthony? Is she truly beginning to realize the seriousness of her actions? I try and give the benefit of the doubt in every situation and yet I cannot. I continue to see the cocky, angry girl we saw in July 2008 and continued to see until December 2009. In one whispered sentence she was transformed into an emotional wreck.The public was supposed to believe that this woman who has been deemed everything from a psychopath to a spoiled brat, has miraculously become a grief stricken mother who has lost her child. Where was that grief when Caylee was gone for thirty one days? Where was that grief when LE had everything at her disposal in order to locate her child? Where was that grief when she screamed at her parents that she was the victim?

     If I were just discovering this case perhaps I could see that maybe just maybe there is an expanation for all of this and Casey couldn’t possibly have committed this crime. However, I am not and cannot look at her as anything more than a cold hearted woman who did not ever deserve that beautiful child nor did she ever deserve the title “Mother”

     January 25th is the first time Casey Anthony will stand trial for one of her crimes. I along with others have followed this case from the very beginning starting with the day Caylee’s face was shown on every new station. I along with others have studied the facts, the theories, interviews, countless documents and forensic evidence. Casey Anthony is a woman who did the unthinkable and a woman who seems to believe that she is above any law, rule or punishment.

     In the first few months of the investigation there would be a commenter here and there discounting any evidence against Casey. Some would come right in and say the blogger was wrong, others would lurk for a while disguising themselves as truly interested in the facts and then begin attacking other commenters or blogs. However, as time gets closer to Casey standing trial the nay sayers are coming out in full force. I am not sure if they believe they will sway the entire public because they believe Casey has been framed, or perhaps they feel as strongly about her innocence as I do of her guilt. The one thing that none of these supporters produce in their constant bashing and arguing are facts. When I ask for facts on one of their sites, I am either ignored or the usual talking in circles saying nothing.

     One of my fellow bloggers is being attacked horribly and has made mention of possibly closing her blog. This to me is giving them exactly what they want. She like many of those who are on my blogroll is a great investigative reporter. She gives the facts and looks at all angles. Yet a few people are accusing her of being ten different bloggers, lying and so on. This is absolute childish behavior and goes right along with those who bully others on the internet. So here is my challenge to them: Instead of following others around calling them names, discrediting their work and claiming they are ling, why not show us all how the facts you have show Casey’s innocence? If you are able to back up your opinions and theories with factual evidence then perhaps people will take a moment to listen. I will agree that we all at one time have said something derragatory against Casey or her parents or the entire defense team, but we have facts to support that and we also have a passion for this case. I am going to pose some questions here to the naysayers and welcome them to answer them for me . I love to read everyones opinions on this case when they are accompanied with logical and factual statements. So here we go, let’s see if you can make me ( who knows anyone out there could be a potential juror) question my own belief that Casey Anthony is the right person standing trial for this crime:

1: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY WAIT THIRTY ONE DAYS TO REPORT HER DAUGHTER MISSING?

2: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY TAKE LE ON A WILD GOOSE CHASE TO PLACES SHE DID NOT WORK, APARTMENTS THAT WERE VACANT, AND LIE ABOUT BEING EMPLOYED?

3: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY ABANDON HER CAR LEAVING A PURSE AND CAYLEES CAR SEAT WITH THE DOORS UNLOCKED?

4: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY GIVE TWO DIFFERENT ACCOUNTS OF THE ACTUAL KIDNAPPING?

5: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY REFUSE TOASSIST IN HELPING LOCATE CAYLEE?

6: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY BE ON FACEBOOK TALKING TO VARIOUS MEN WHEN HER DAUGHTER WAS MISSING?

7:WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY CONTINUE ON FOR THIRTY ONE DAYS LUNCHING, PARTYING, WATCHING MOVIES AND TELL THE SAME LIE TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY?

8: HOW COULD CASEY ANTHONY LEAD A NORMAL LIFE DAY TO DAY IF SHE WAS SO WORRIED ABOUT HER DAUGHTERS SAFETY?

9: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY TELL LIE AFTER LIE ABOUT HER PARENTS, DAUGHTER, FRIENDS, CAR SMELL AND SO ON?

10: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY ONLY CRY WHEN IT WAS ABOUT HER AND NOT HER DAUGHTER?

11: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY SIT IN JAIL FOR OVER A YEAR WITHOUT FIGHTING ANYONE AND EVERYONE IF SHE WAS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS CRIME?

12: WHY WOULD ITEMS FROM THE HOUSE BE WHAT CAYLEE WAS ULTIMATELY FOUND WRAPPED IN?

13: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY NOT TELL HER CLOSEST FRIENDS THAT SHE CAN’T FIND HER DAUGHTER?

14: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY NEED SEDATIVES AND WANT THE TAPE TO HER REACTION BLOCKED WHEN CAYLEES BODY WAS FOUND?

15: WHY WOULD CASEY ANTHONY HAVE DECOMPOSITION IN HER TRUNK?

     Those are the first fifteen, and if someone can give a great argument that shows anything other than my beliefs then I am willing to pose more. I wil be anxiously awaiting the answers….

     “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…..

     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.

Here is a link to read the entire motion: http://wwww.examiner.com/x-1168-Crime-Examiner~y2009m9d18-Casey-Anthony-case-Read-defenses-motion-for-change-of-venue

     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…

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…

    The hearing that is latest in the multiple motions that have been filed in this case has concluded today.

     Casey Anthony was led into the court room and after not having seen her in months, I must say she looks drawn. Her face seems to me to be sunken in some and she looks as though she has not had much sleep. George and Cindy Anthony were in attendance. Both of them really look as if they have been through hell.

     The motions that were filed were argued, argued and then argued. Mark NeJame was in attendance representing Tim Miller of Equisearch. He is really an act of class. I think he is truly saddened by this case and after the exchange with George Anthony yesterday at a press conference, it is easy to see the compassion he has for these people.

     Jose Baez was of course inserting little jabs at the State as he does at every hearing, but we are used to him and if he all of a sudden became completely professional we wouldn’t know how to act.

     The motions ruled on and the results of those motions are as follows:

TO CERTIFY TIM MILLER AS A MATERIAL WITNESS:

     In this motion the defense asks to have access to the records of searchers who volunteered with Equisearch. The defense sites that they have valid information that the area in which Caseys remains were found were thoroughly searched and therefor they believe that the body of Caylee Anthony was placed there by someone else after Casey Anthony was incarcerated.

     Judge Strickland has held off ruling on this case for a week.

Some of the key points of the arguments given are:

Arguments by the Defense:

                              ~ There is substantial evidence that Caylee Anthony was placed there after Casey Anthony was incarcerated.

                           ~ Proves that someone else put her body there.

                          ~ The searchers are potential witnesses to say there was no body there.

                          ~ Casey Anthony has the right to a full investigation of all volunteers due to this being a capital murder case.

                        ~ Has evidence that the area was extensively searched.

                      ~ The defense has a right to review all the documents. The fact that they have been reviewed by NeJame and Conway does not prove who else viewed them.

                          ~Just because they determined that they have found 32 people who are worth looking into who is to say that there is no other volunteer that we feel relevant.

      ~ Our intent is not to harass or embarrass anyone, should we find a volunteer that we feel will add something of worth to this case then and only then will the information be released.

ARGUMENTS BY MARK NEJAME:

         ~ Texas Equisearch has thousands of searchers who were a part of this case. So do we tell all four thousand that they must give their information? The motion is too broad. We are willing to give the information of the searchers in the area and within 200 yards of the place where Caylee was found.

     ~ We are willing to allow the judge to review the four thousand people behind closed doors and rule as to what he sees fit.

     ~Out of sympathy and concern for Mr and Mrs Anthony, we allowed their attorney Brad Conway to review the documents first. Even prior to our reviewing and he was unable to find even 32 people who he felt had a valid reason for the defense to inquire about.

     ~No Tim Miller will not be allowed by me to give a deposition until the defense narrows down what it is they are looking for. If at that time we can agree then by all means he will be more than willing to testify.

     ~ When asked why it would be Tim Miller to give the information as to who was there and why Nejames response: If Tim Miller doesn’t know if a specific volunteer was in the area, how would anyone else?

     ~We have no issue if the defense is willing to pay up front for the costs that will be incurred by theirreviewing all of this information. Texas Equisearch is a donation only charity and does not have themeans to pay for the man hours it will take. They will need to pay for the people who will be needed to gather all of the information, Pay an independent withness to monitor them and ensure it is being done correctly. If they want to come in and not be able to take anything with them and review the people associated within 200 yards then yes there is no issue.

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

MOTION TO QUASH SUBPEONA OF ANTHONY LAZARRO:

     This was addressed previously and the outcome was that the defense had to narrow its motion. The subpeona was narrowed and they are asking for records for the dates of June 1st of 08 through July 15th of 08, and July 23rd of 08 through January 09.

     Judge Strickland has ruled that the defense may have access to the phone records from June of 08 through December 0f 08. He stated that he will allow access of the phone records up until two weeks after the discovery of Caylees remains. He stated that his reasoning for this is that if he takes into account the defenses claim that someone else placed Caylee there, then there could possibly be a flurry of panicky phone calls during the time the remains were found. He denied them needing the text messages and said should they be deemed necessary after receiving the phone records they can then come back and ask. As far as the cell phone pings he stated he does not know much about them but if they are in the report with the phone records then they can have them, otherwise they need to ask the court after reviewing the phone records.

ARGUMENTS MADE BY ATTORNEY JAY: (atty. for Tony Lazarro)

     ~Under case law the defense has to show relevancy. Most of what they want pertains to their client Casey Anthony and all contact with her was severed after July 15th.

     ~The defense states as example of relevancy that they searched Mr. Lazarros car . In fact his car was searched due to the fact that Casey Anthony was driving his car for more than a week.

     ~Subpeona filed by the defense is too broad. It does not meet the criteria for materiality, they need to state what it is they actually want. The reason they cannot narrow the subpeona is because they have no facts.

     ~ In the event the motion is granted, it should be the court who receives the records and reviews them under camera.

  ARGUMENTS BY THE DEFENSE:

     ~The time frames are based on many things that have been turned over to us. ie: State submitted information that he was used as an informant for a secret meeting with Lee Anthony.

     ~ The relevancy of the records from September to January are : 1) Because Caylee Anthony’s remains were not found until December 2) We want the cell phone pings in order to see whether or not he was in that area past September. 3) He is a material witness and spent a significant amount of time with my client and will offer testimony against my client.

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

MOTION TO BAR LEONARD PADILLA AND AFFILIATES FROM TESTIFYING:

     This motion was filed to stop Leonard Padilla and his entourage from testifying against Casey Anthony. In the motion it states that it is in violation of Attorney/ Client priviledge. Baez states that Leonard Padilla was hired as part of the defense team, yet his actions and instructions to Casey Anthony and her family members show otherwise.

     Judge Strickland ruled that he wil not rule on this case as he was given three hours of video tape by the State to review in order to determine if the motion has relevancy.

     George Anthony was called to testify by Jose Baez, and then cross examined by the State. He seemed to be conflicted, it’s as if he wants to know the truth but doesn’t want to give the State anything further to implicate his daughter. Casey Anthony’s eyes filled with tears when her father took the stand. When he left the stand he blew his daughter a kiss.

Here are some of the main questions posed to George Anthony and his responses:

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

MOTION TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE CHECK FRAUD TRIAL:

     This motion was filed by the state to move ahead with the check fraud trial brought against Casey Anthony regarding her forging checks of her good friend Amy Huzeinga. The state is asking to set a date for the trial and the defense is asking to not set a date until after the capital murder trial.

     Judge Strickland again refrained from ruling on this case until he reviews it. This again was mostly a pissing match and even though there is no ruling I’d say the State won this one. They had very valid  points and completely squashed the theory that the defense is entirely too busy to deal with this.

ARGUMENTS FROM THE STATE:

~The state is ready for the trial and would like to proceed. This case has been going on a year and going nowhere. We are talking about a small time frame of one week.

~ I realize there are overlapping witnesses in this case yet I feel that we will be able to seperate the two.

~ The defense claims that they are too busy preparing for the death penalty trial and yet they cannot argue the following facts:

  • Only one attorney on record is involved with both cases. That being Mr. Baez.
  • Mr Baez has 20 other pending cases that he took on after the death penalty was announced. So to say that he is wholly cosumed in this case only is false.
  • Ms. Lyons as of now is not involved on record in this case and yet she has said she will be participating in both. Should she decide to get involved I think she could give one day to this case.
  • The defense states that there is no way they can get a jury. We would like to think that the utmost concern would be given when questioning a jury pool.

~ In a sworn affidavit Amy Huzeinga staes that this case has been going on over a year causing her great mental stress. Her name is all overthe internet, and it is hindering her from getting a job.

~ We are not demanding a speedy trial, we are asking to have a date on the docket.

~We are ready for the trial, have 15 witnesses and only need one day for trial. Aside from jury selection we can be done in a day.

ARGUMENTS BY THE DEFENSE:

~ We are not complaining that we are to busy We are trying to prepare to save Ms. Anthony’s life.

~We will be filing a change in venue

~ Even though the state claims it will only take a day it will divert attention and resources.

~ Our suggestion would be to set a trial date 60 days after the murder trial…

At that point the state rebutted with: We don’t even know when we are going to have a murder trial…

One thing is for sure, it is never dull when something happens with this case!
