But the jury has -- say no choice each member of the jury must look at the worst pictures a decomposed child a few strands of hair and evidence of duct tape.
It's called evidence and today was day -- -- Casey Anthony murder trial for the first time the jury is seeing the gruesome photos of the scene.
Just days after -- body was found now we weren't back to the crime scene just a few days ago and this is what we saw.
You're looking at a wooded area.
It is about a two minute drive from the home where.
Little Caylee Anthony lived with her mother and her grandparents.
Try a five minute walk it's very -- edited -- June of 2011.
If you're a call she disappeared.
In June of 20083.
Years ago the police first start looking for a sometime in July when the grandmother reported she was missing.
And the -- -- -- and look in this particular area and the searchers because it was so flooded.
We can certainly see how dense it is now three years later which is about the same time appeared.
The remains of Caylee.
Were found in December of 2008 about six much -- she disappeared.
It's hard to ignore the significance of the fact that the child's remains were found -- two minutes.
By car from the home -- about a five minute walk.
That's -- -- -- this -- difficult for the dead child's grandparents Cindy and George left the courtroom before the graphic pictures were present and hey Casey just -- the way and cried.
And then it got so bad Casey said she was sick and the judge -- the jury and recess for today.
Former LAPD homicide detective mark -- knows what it's like to process -- crime scene like this.
He joins us good -- mark.
The evening Greta.
But this sick twisted way I guess most people would say this -- put a good day for the prosecution although this is never a good day when we're talking to us tonight murder and certainly -- -- child but found that -- but it is a powerful -- when you start presenting the evidence the the autopsy and crime scene is not.
You know it's very difficult it's difficult paper it's difficult for all parties but this is really necessary because it is -- The nexus of the crime men and this is a big issue in the crime.
Is cause of death and of course we've seen it.
-- -- five mr.
Baez presents an accidental death.
No accidental death comes with duct tape over the nose and the mouth so this is the prosecutions.
Our connection to premeditation.
And a crime other than accident left.
We may -- -- because up until this point they are almost all in agreement -- -- -- back and forth and cross examination and added you know attempts to you know focus on the evidence up.
But debt and it seems of people agree that the child -- And the defense says it's accident.
And the prosecution says it's murder probably place a trunk of the car I don't think there's much disputed that even though they fought over the -- in the car not.
But this is sort of you know when you look at the -- and remains yeah.
Dell is the it would be sort of circumstance should put the -- of -- does it look like she actually died.
Or whether -- -- in the duct tape is painful for the defense to handle.
Well -- I don't think Reverend -- to know unless Casey Anthony wants to take the stand -- exactly describe exactly what happened to her daughter.
And if those statements all fit into the evidence now.
The duct tape.
Is that either anti mortem or post mortem before death or after death but now because of the advanced stage of the decomposition.
There's nobody that can determine if that tape was on before or after death if -- if you -- child would have been found within a couple weeks you could have.
I want the musketeers sings about the case and it still hasn't come -- maybe you can explain it to -- does come on evidences of the meter reader the one who found the remains.
He made his first call -- finest -- would center August 11.
And yet -- -- not found until December 11 have you any explanation for that imminent and may just be excited collateral issue but.
Do you and can you understand that.
I I don't understand this every time I read something I get confused but.
Greta let's let's understand something it has nothing to do with Casey Anthony -- her statement to her attorney's statement and opening statements.
The child died June 16.
Has nothing to do with the discovery of the remains because.
Even in August there is probably.
A high probability that there would not have been enough remains to actually create the cause of death opinion.
I'm not sure but there was an advanced state of decomposition in the trunk.
And that of course was so much later than that it.
-- -- -- trial resumes tomorrow I'm Casey Anthony back in the courtroom have and I guess deck composed herself a little bit because the -- continue with the information about the crime scene and autopsy and -- defense starts next week mark thank you.
