Chassis new evidence in the Casey Anthony case the Florida shares office now admitting it overlooked it computer search.
One that everyone agrees could've been -- -- to the prosecution.
Police say -- investigator missed an Internet search for.
Foolproof but suffocation methods and the search was done by someone in the Anthony home -- June 16 2008 now that's the last day.
Two year old Caylee Anthony was seen alive.
The -- -- is of course raising lots of questions who did the search why did the -- get to prosecutors and the burning question could be evidence have changed the verdict.
Former LAPD detective mark -- joins us today.
-- -- -- I can't imagine anything -- damning than that computer search the day that the child was last seen and I'm curious how this is -- -- -- I have no idea you know you would think because you have a child dismissing whether she's kidnapped or you -- suspect that she's been murdered.
She is missing on a certain day and that's where it should start in the -- should work backward in time from there.
I mean you should start there you shouldn't work from the time that you discovered the child is missing a month later two weeks later three weeks later -- and try to work back to that time so.
I think it's huge Greta I mean -- do will be there is something that there is really not been stated by the press here.
The mother left for work before the father the father left for work and checked into his job as a security guard and then the computer search was Ron and the only person in the house.
Was Casey happening.
And in fact there's also a -- at 252 which was after the fool -- suffocation it was done at 251.
The browser record indicates activity have MySpace.
A website that she frequently used and that her father did not and they have even mention of fathers because the defense try to serve cast suspicion.
I'm charge that he was up to no good that was sort of they have one of the defense to theories are efforts during the course of trial.
-- -- it what's so what's so it.
Terrible about this is that they actually knew enough to -- the computer they didn't have enough.
Veteran smarts to actually search it search -- computer.
All right I'm I'm not the person to be talking about how you get information out of a hard drive but there are people that are forensic people -- can do that certainly this case -- a -- this is a major part.
-- present proving the cause method of death of Caylee Anthony was his computer search.
-- you couldn't prove it because -- the good the body was too far decomposed to actually do an autopsy that would prove cause of death.
So they were pivoting on that -- the chloroform in the vehicle.
These indications there was a search for chloroform.
On the Internet and I have a feeling that that's when the search stopped or.
The motivation for the search almost certain now we've got corroboration for the friends -- on the car.
-- -- The -- -- -- Jeff Ashton is quoted as saying.
It's just a shame we didn't have -- this certainly would have put the accent out death claim in serious question you say the F and the -- out of -- the decomposition.
That was the main problem that the prosecution has it couldn't show that she was murdered they -- -- show the team had died but they could show the causation.
And this would have presumably been a piece of but circumstantial evidence which is nonetheless powerful circumstantial evidence that the prosecution just didn't have.
What you're absolutely correct Guerrero when you look at this.
The the prosecution was trying to prove that the child was suffocated.
-- she was smothered and duct tape was the evidence they were using over nose and her mouth -- job.
This computer search just hours before the child is missing.
And now you have duct tape found on the body at that time it does fit and I think the jury.
Would have been.
I think they would have been very troubled trying to adjudicate that.
On the behalf of Casey Anthony.
And certain people up there might wonder -- -- -- should be retried in the answer is no double jeopardy constitutional -- can't twice be tried for the same crime so.
Casey -- they won't be -- she will be living with this.
And I'm sort of curious to me and her family her passive innovation -- statement -- but think talk troubling for the parents who want to believe their daughter.
Did murder their grandchild and then they read about this -- The whole thing is in there and there's some -- -- tragic ramifications of this besides the fact that if you have.
This child was murdered.
Well absolutely you can't blame this on the defense I mean this is -- straight.
The prosecution detective work I mean it -- this.
And I don't think you should lay all the blame on the sheriff's department either or the lead detective -- task force a ten to twelve detectives on this from three agencies.
But the prosecutors.
Should be doing checks and balances with those detectives all the time.
Asking them are you sure.
Can we go over that again we need more and and they had trouble from this while they were in trial in this.
Evidence coming up during trial certainly would have felt.
Indeed dads that they can probably would have -- I think they went pretty much agreement on that markets always thank you.
