Casey Anthony Live Trial Thread, Day 40 (6/27/11)
Free Republic | June 27, 2011 | truthkeeper

Posted on 06/27/2011 5:13:50 AM PDT by truthkeeper

Hello Trial Watchers.

Grab your yellow legal pads, sharpen your #2 pencils, don your asbestos undies (you'll need them!), and let the flames and the day begin.

Today is the first day of the live thread. Speculation abounds surrounding the surprise one-day recess on Saturday. There is talk of a plea-bargain, discovery violation, witness tampering, and, God forbid, even a mistrial.

Today I heard some feel Chaney Mason may be withdrawing, that he doesn't like working with Jose Baez and is sick of the case.

I believe television coverage begins at 8:00 a.m. and the trial starts at 9:00 a.m.

So all this was because Casey wanted to show she was not competent to continue with the proceedings..could have saved the courts a lot of hassle..of course she is competent. She is a sociopath, she is not insane..strange that they wanted this in now, maybe the defense knows they are screwed so they will use this motion on appeal

That's what I heard...the defense wants an issue to use on appeal. This is it.

Yeah only problem with that is Casey is NOT insane..she is a sociopath, that isn’t considered a mental illness(At least as far as I know) and the judge was smart to have her interviewed by THREE doctors which means he took every measure to ensure that the defense can’t claim she wasn’t seen by a doctor, she was seen by THREE..not counting the numerous shrinks she has seen throughout this entire case

One of the commentors on Tru TV said the same thing - she wants to testify. She had no evidence, of course, just an assumption. Makes sense to me!

Unfortunately, we are back to slides and biochemistry so the trial is lagging a bit. Poor jury.

Thank God we aren't having to listen to Dr. Robin Cotton and two weeks of DNA evidence, a la O.J. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Fascinating story. Can you tell me the name of the defendant - or is that secret? Personally, I'm glad you were dismissed. I've sat on murder trials and it's not fun. Especially when you end up sequestered.

Casey's eyes are dead as door nails. But I've noticed that her mother's eyes are somewhat dead, too. In a different way, if you know what I mean.

I don’t know what else it could be except her wanting to testify. She’s probably hardheaded enough to think she knows best. She still might testify, but if she does, Ashton will tear her apart.

Another thing that the defense has NEVER explained. Ok so their story is that Caylee died in the pool accidentally..so what the heck did Casey do with the body? The Defense says it was never in the truck, the defense says it was never in the woods where she was found in December 2008, so where the heck was the body all that time..and are we supposed to believe that the meter reader one day was taking a stroll, came across the body and said “Oh wow look, a dead body, hey I think that’s Caylee Anthony, let me take this body home, keep it til December, dump it in the woods, call the cops and collect my huge reward”

This guy is a supposed self proclaimed private eye working for the Anthony’s. This footage is supposed to be him looking in the exact area 1 month before Caylee was found.

The guy comes off bad and it seems contived in a way. Maybe the Anthony’s had this footage made and moved the body there later.

Lots if stuff to confuse things.

Great post. The defense’s claim is so ludicrous! I think they are going to try to pin this awful crime on the poor meter reader (Kronk?!) but I hope the jury is not so stupid as to believe this.

Do you remember how late in the game that the body of Chandra Levy was discovered? She was in plain view in a public park for a long, long time before someone reported a dead body. No one accused the poor soul who discovered her as her murderer.

He’s a “private investigator” who pressed himself on the Anthonys, who (apparently) stupidly, agreed to let him be their bodyguard and investigator. As you may notice, not only does he speak quickly, he can’t even be understood!

The stupid, in-denial Anthonys were way over their heads in this sad case!

Believe me if I am thinking like this some members of the jury are too..where the heck did they put the body..and how the heck did Kronk find it..and if it was all about the money, when he first called the cops in August, how come he didnt direct them to the exact location of the body to collect his big reward, why wait til December..what was SO special about December..that is why the BS defense won’t fly because the defense keeps on saying there was no body in the car and the body was not in the woods so what happened to the body after she died..did it go into outer space then come back down LOL

I was just thinking the same exact thing. So if I'm thinking it, and you're thinking, the jury is probably thinking it too.

BTW, doesn't this guy look like he just got out of rehab?

I can’t understand a word he says and he doesn’t seem to understand anything anyone in court says to him. That the defense put him up there in the first place must be a sign of their desperation.

The next guy up is no better.

Can someone explain what these guys are actually saying? All I hear is that they were mucking around in the swamp (without getting wet, mind you) and not finding any dead bodies. But given their obvious incompetence, who is surprised that they couldn’t find water in a swamp (as one of them actually said).

The current guy is hilarious! He doesn't seem to understand anybody’s questions, is very anal-retentive and, generally, makes no sense whatsoever. (”You want me to make a mark—where? I don't understand this photograph. This is an aerial photograph. Is this a fence? Can I ask if this is a fence?”) and on and on and on.

Dominic Casey is completely crazy! The facebook people are having a riot with him! Poor man is way over his head; he’s obsessed with “x’s” and “squares.” Somebody has got to get him off the stand. I’m surprised Casey herself hasn’t started to laugh.

I'm listening with half an ear and working at the same time because my phone started ringing off the hook. I just saw Jane Velez Mitchell on HLN cut in and she was all worked up, practically frothing at the mouth. She said this guy blew a hole in the prosecution's theory and said his testimony shows the duct tape could have been placed on the body LATER to "hold the jawbone together."

Jane, please...get a grip. Remember the heart-shaped sticker placed on the duct tape? Where does she think that came from?

"That mother hated that child for some reason and IMHO, it may have more to do with the "unknown" father than we think."

I disagree with that. Casey's statement to her brother as to why Cindy couldn't see the child -- "maybe because I'm a vindictive bitch" -- tells the truth to me. Casey didn't care about about who fathered that child ... she quite probably doesn't know who fathered the child. Testimony seems to prove that she was what we called "easy" back in the day.

Casey was angry after a big fight with her mother, and took away from her parents what they cherished most in this world -- the grandchild. The neighbors even heard the fight the night before Casey and the kid disappeared for a month.

Additionally, Casey wanted to party. Everything in Casey's universe is about Casey, and what she wants. Have you seen the recordings of the jailhouse visits with family? Casey turns everything around to be about her and how pitifully she is being treated.

Casey has access to plenty of makeup. With the sunshine laws in Florida, a list of everything the woman buys with her prison account money is available to the public. Makeup and junk food are her main purchases. It may have been Greta that revealed what what on the list.

Something occured to me a couple of nights ago after seeing Lee Anthony's bizarrely emotional testimony about his having been shut out about Casey's pregnancy.

I believe that Lee, despite his supposed DNA test clearance, is Caylee's father.

Then all of a sudden it hit me like a ton of bricks:

Casey + Lee = CayLee

I have no idea if anyone has posted this yet--I haven't been following the thread...but I wanted to share this very strange bit that popped into muh hayed. :-/

DNA doesn’t lie, and I believe it was the FBI lab that ran the tests, wasn’t it? Interesting point on the name, though.

And it was also just SO odd how emotional CASEY was when Lee was talking about being shut out and not being able to go to the hospital to see Casey or the baby.

Casey and Lee were close growing up, and the family specifically sent Lee to the jail to try to get info from Casey when they were unable to do so.

I wasn't really buying Lee's crying episode on the stand ... the whole family is trying to keep Casey out of the electric chair. They know she is guilty, but they can't stand the though of her being killed. Casey is NEVER going to garner sympathy from the jury or the public, so the family is trying to acquire sympathy in the hearts of the jury on her behalf.

I think Casey did see the love of her brother coming through and it touched her. Her parents have been unable to get that reaction. She may have even been regretful that the defense brought Lee into the molestation lie.

Casey had an army of boyfriends and sexual conquests, and Lee dated and ultimately married. That indicates to me that there was not a relationship between them other than brother and sister.

I wasn’t paying attention to who performed the DNA test—but wondered if it was possible that it was just accepted from their family doctor or nurse. And with Cindy being a nurse and her knowledge of process and her connections and who knows whatever else... I just know that I can’t in my mind accept that it is anywhere NEAR normal for either Lee’s or Casey’s emotions—surrounding her pregnancy/birth and the secrecy *specifically* against Lee—to be what they ehibited...unless it’s due to HE being the father.

I’m pretty sure that is was an FBI lab technician on the stand that was asked if they (the FBI) were asked to perform paternity tests on the DNA samples, after the police were totally unable to determine the paternity of the child through typical means.
