Casey Anthony is likely to be charged with Homicide in the next few days! Another live blog while I’m watching Nancy Grace…so you don’t have to. 😉
The state is set to seek Homicide Charges- against Casey in the death/disappearance of her daughter Caylee.
Manslaughter or murder is the question?
Here are the latest documents.
Today the state released more documents and surveillance video of her shopping at Target w/Amy’s checks- buying those ugly big white sunglasses, cases of beer, sexy lingerie, groceries and the blue hoodie she was wearing when she was arrested the first time- nothing for Caylee.
WKMG reporting that in the coming days- next week in fact -they will convene a grand jury.

Tuesday goes to Grand Jury– people have already been asked to clear their schedules for that day- they will be issued subpoenas–including Cindy, George and Tony.
Prosecution has hair samples, air samples, cadaver dogs, signs of decomposition in the trunk.
Search for chloroform and high levels found in the trunk suggest premeditation.
Grand jury has been sitting for a few months so this case will probably be the last before this jury is dissolved. Smart to bring it in front of a seasoned grand jury- rather then one who’s just been seated.
A little over $2100 in Amy’s checking account in June- when Casey was done – writing the last check to herself for $250 cash on July 15 (the day before she was arrested)– Amy got back from vacation to find she had just about $49 left.
Equusearch is coming back to search – no timeline as to when searchers will be out in the field. Leonard Padilla thinks they have the area pretty well narrowed down now- still focusing on the area near the airport. He says he’s putting money on them find her by Tuesday. I think that’s a stretch.
Typically you don’t go to the grand jury unless you feel pretty confident you will get an indictment. Nancy says you should make your case lean and mean bc otherwise you will reveal too much of your case and allow the defense to crawl all over it and the transcript– using it to possibly impeach a witness if their testimony varies at the actual trial.
Pathological lying- is a on a list of characteristics for extreme sociopathy– not a mental illness- but is a characteristic of a personality disorder.
Friday she will appear in court as part of the request for her to be allowed to visit points of interest in helping in the search for her daughter.
Leonard thinks the target area (based on cell phone pings) should be NW of airport and SE of her home. His theoretical timeline involves the 27th – when the car was first seen at Amscot. He thinks she picks up the car- goes home calls JC Penny (not sure what that has to do w/it?) then later calls Amy and says she got rid of smell from car– says she scraped the dead squirrels from the car. 😦
If the body was underground or underwater it will be better preserved and its possible that they’ll be able to diagnose cause of death. If the remains were left above ground- small animals may have eaten and scattered the remains.
82 people on the list 35 of them are Law Enforcement (LE).
They say it is likely they will get an indictment and if they don’t then they will get a second chance because a new grand jury will be seated shortly.
