Jessica D’onofrio from WKMG – confirming that the case is going to the grand jury Tuesday. She says its looking more like they’re going to go for murder not manslaughter and reiterating that they have a lot more evidence that they haven’t revealed. Saying that typically in Florida its only capital cases that go to the grand jury- I’m not sure who the commentator is, bc he’s in a little box on the right so that she can play the video of Casey at Target and Nancy in her shiny shirt along w/all the tickers and such along the bottom that at NO TIME are w/out the phrase BREAKING NEWS!!
I still don’t have time to do anything but watch Nancy and live blog about the case during that one hour a day. Real life has really intruded- though I’m thinking about going to court tomorrow to see Casey plead to get off of house arrest- yuk.
Lee refuses to take a polygraph, was instrumental (according to Leonard) in getting his parents to refuse one and also did not voluntarily give up DNA – but forced them to get a subpoena. WTF?
No body, no way to show cause of death and no crime scene – says you can get a conviction w/out one of these things but w/out all 3 its going to be really difficult.
Strongest evidence is the time line along w/evidence from trunk and the chloroform says there is also evidence that we don’t know about yet.
Jose Baez from the Today Show clip coming on saying its not to her advantage to participate in this secret one sided affair- he wouldn’t expose his client to that. She will appear before a judge tomorrow morning to try to plead her way off of house arrest.
TexasEquusearch is back on the ground in Orlando.
Circumstantial evidence includes:
Hair w/death band found in the trunk of the length and color of Caylee
Chloroform levels found in the trunk
signs of decomposition found in the trunk
computer searches for chloroform
With all the gas can activity I can imagine that is one of Casey’s biggest regrets right now- I think she was going to torch that car and I think she never got around to it.
Leonard says that minutes after she leaves the area – where its suspected she dumped Caylee- she called Amy and said I finally got rid of that smell- I had to scrape a dead animal off.
Tim Miller says they’re back to search in the area where the cell phones were pinging. By the airport and there are 3 towers of interest. He says he expects over 2000 people to volunteer to search- he says people have not lost interest and there is not one chance in the world that this little girl is alive. He says today over a year ago they searched for Tynesha Stewart – never finding her body but today Timothy Shepard was convicted of her murder. TXEQ.org needs donations.
Custodian of records of ATT will come in and lay out a detailed timeline from when Casey first said Caylee went missing (originally said 6/9) then they figured out it was actually 6/15 at the Cindy’s father’s nursing home- until the time when Casey was forced by her mother Cindy to contact the authorities about her “missing” daughter.
June 16 and 17th flurry of phone calls, then called Tony no one picked up. That’s when they think Caylee died.
New motive revealed talking about text messages- talking about needing emergency money while planning the vacation to Puerto Rico in early June– they think that Caylee prevented Casey from going on this vacation w/friends. I’m sure Cindy balked at coughing up the dough and taking on the full time child care. If only Casey had really had a job and a nanny -as in her imaginary world- she would have been able to go to Puerto Rico. Instead of getting a job- who knows what she did?? We do know that she stole from her parents, her brother her friends AND she took a routing number off of a check that her grandmother wrote her for a birthday and used it to steal money out of that account.
They’re saying they are almost positive that Caylee died on 6/16. They have records of her going to a blockbuster (renting the movies Untraceable and Jumper)and then to spend that evening at her boyfriend’s house– I guess Caylee was already in the trunk. 😦
Showing more of the surveillance video- this during the time when she was supposedly doing anything she could to desperately look for her kidnapped daughter.
June 15 last time Caylee was seen by anyone outside the family. George says he saw them leaving the house the afternoon of 6/16 and then… something horrible happened. We will probably never know the real truth- but I’m sure we’ll get another creative version from Casey. We do know that on that Monday 6/16, after whatever happened to Caylee, she goes to Blockbuster at 9pm then sleeps over at Tony’s. They said she then, on the 17th, made another flurry of calls and then went to her parents house on the next day the 18th- backing into the garage (highly unusual) and she borrowed the neighbor’s shovel. So I wonder if she had her in the trunk from 6/16 till she borrowed the shovel and tried burying her in the back yard? I wonder if when George saw them leaving on 6/16 if Caylee was walking or was she being carried “sleeping” by Casey out the door? I wonder if she had hidden her in the playhouse or the sandbox and then sneaked back over there at some point to get her?
I’m starting to think something happened the night of the 15th after the fight. Maybe Casey sneaked out- chloroforming Caylee to keep her quiet while she got out of the house then left her in the care of Zanny(Xanax) the nanny while she partied and slept w/her boyfriend. Maybe there was an overdose and from then on she was in spin mode?
Baez saying she should be allowed to assist in her offense. Says they have consistently leaked “bad” information and its an obvious fact that they are trying this case in the court of public opinion- bc they don’t have any evidence or a body. He’s such a whiny little b!tch- smirk face- he’s way out of his league.
Its not ‘in her advantage’ bc the proceeding is one sided. He doesn’t believe in the grand jury proceeding- its not a ghost- it exists you idiot- you don’t have to believe in it. You may not believe that its proper but its existence is not in question. Although we do understand you are deeply immersed in an imaginary alternate reality w/Casey right now. You should come up for air more often.
Says Casey was jealous of Caylee and wanted to get rid of her source of envy. Amy got to go to Puerto Rico and Casey was jealous so she stole her money. They showed one of the checks where Casey “allegedly” signed her own name- I love how they have to say that- We can see that its her name- I wonder if she will say Zanny signed it? ALLEGEDLY.
Caller- did they search Jay Blanchard Park? We’re not sure but its most likely- as she mentioned it often. Did they search where the lady spotted Casey’s car and someone matching her description emerging from the woods? Tim Miller says unfortunately neither area has been completely searched- due to the ground being waterlogged at the time.
George Anthony will testify bc of what he has to say about the smell in the car and about the gas cans Lee Anthony bc of what he has not said– he hasn’t given DNA evidence and he refused a polygraph.
Over 750 pings just 3% of them are significant– traces that to 6/16 and the timeline that WKMG has already been mentioned.
97% of calls were from area of her home or friends home or Fusion– the other 3% were from the area over near the airport. I bet that Jose and Casey want to drive over in that area so that Casey can come up w/some kind of fantastic fiction to explain her activities in the area.
Between 5:23 and 8:23 on 6/17 Casey’s phone goes silent- no activity– highly unusual activity for Casey who was constantly on the phone.
Caller-Where did she go the night of 6/15 after the fight w/her mother? We’re not sure- probably to stay w/a boyfriend.
Caller- Why haven’t they brought in pyschics? NG says they have. Also, have all the boyfriends taken a polygraph? We think they have and they’ve all been eliminated.
Once an indictment is handed down- she’s entitled to a speedy trial and she will probably ask for it- forces the state to go ahead w/out a body. Unless Tim Miller finds it- say a prayer!
Jose saying there’s zero evidence in these documents (released) that shows that Casey harmed Caylee in anyway. NG says is he crazy? Lawyers saying if all he can do is discredit grand jury he’s grasping for straws and others mostly saying he should just keep his mouth shut.
Leonard says he thinks there will be an indictment shortly and then before long Tim will find the body– let’s hope that’s true!! Then NG told me -Goodnight friend.
