-- -- you would like it's -- jail if -- orange county jail you get a rare look at we're Casey's spending her days when she is not in the courtroom.
And Jersey here's surprising testimony about the hair and duct tape found on -- as -- spell.
The prosecution is hours away from resting.
Wasn't -- going to do put on evidence or is the defense also going to rest -- legal analyst here is this murder trial enters week number four.
But first Jurcina Casey Anthony murder trial are hearing new testimony about that duct tape which prosecutors claim -- used to suffocate two year old -- No fingerprints -- found on the three strips of tape but an FBI examiner testified today that she saw something very strange.
-- -- -- Nation of Q 63.
An outline of a heart appeared in one of the corners on the edge of that piece of news.
So what does this mean for the prosecution.
And that there is more shocking news on -- and medical examiner told a packed courtroom this.
First we know from.
That is a red flag.
That when a child.
Is not reported immediately to authorities either.
With an injury.
That's something we look far for foul play.
This child from history was not reported for a long time there is no child.
That should have duct tape on its face when it dies.
There's no reason to put duct tape on the face after they don't.
Based on our experience we -- -- In -- -- other homicide.
-- LAPD homicide detective mark -- -- mean market of course the prosecution would I use of it -- loved to have the fingerprints of Casey Anthony on that duct tape but it's not there.
Defense or make a lot of it but how critical is it that there are no fingerprints.
Of the mother and that duct tape.
Well you know -- that the fingerprint expert I think she was very good -- -- and she laid out I think she's very truthful.
I don't think this goes against prosecution at all but when she.
She's looking for fingerprints she's not looking for other evidence and so when she comes upon it.
I don't think that did it first occurred to her two to photograph and immediately she notified people.
And then let's remember that because of her notification.
There was hearts found at the house and I believe there was multiple search warrants so that information could have been used to actually.
Once again going to the Anthony home or make sense of evidence they are to collective.
You know much will be made -- any cross examination of an -- -- witness like this but it is upon the prosecution to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that someone committed a crime the crime was committed.
I think we'll see that you know that there in Indiana and that.
Casey's behavior is gonna -- -- a lot of blanks of what people might infer from any evidence do great.
I agree with you wholeheartedly it's one thing if you have an accidental death if you have.
-- -- death that you participate again and you feel guilty but to dispose of the child and then act in the way she did.
Goes -- it's counterintuitive -- it makes no sense and I think it did absolutely.
-- her conviction down with every day of that 31 days she was -- partied and socializing with her child in the drop.
Do you have any explanation and I'm -- represented ask you want to tour.
Is the meter reader apparently made his first -- in August of 08.
But the remains -- found until December 08.
Do you have any explanation for and this and is -- any relevance to this case at all.
You don't -- I think -- I have no idea what took place during that period or the searches how -- how how she -- been -- but she certainly could have been messed.
At some point the weather the conditions just human error.
But of mr.
Hawk has little -- -- with that 31 days and that's really what we should focus on.
Not 31 days.
The child was killed.
And the mother when -- ball for 31 days failing to report -- missing and doctor G said it best it's the first black.
The second was.
They have never had an accidental drowning in that county where 911 or EMS wasn't called and no duct tape belongs on a child.
Dead or alive.
I'm curious when you as a detective when you talk to someone who was a young person is about point 2283 at the times picked up missing child at the time as a -- conversation.
Do you have any difficulty.
Talking very getting out the facts because she's young.
Well when you when -- -- when you first talk like Casey Anthony.
I'm pretty impressed with the way the detectives handled this case from the onset but.
I think it's hard to understand.
How things get out of control for somebody like Casey Anthony and so.
When you're talking to her I think it's it's difficult.
To not want to.
Understand what they did but I think this is one of the problems I I really think initially she didn't really understand the gravity of what occurred.
And of course it would just so pictures of in the courtroom she is so very young and of course that's but the jury is looking at -- four weeks mark thank you.
And the jury also heard from an FBI hair and fiber investigator today he testified that he saw more evidence of decomposition on the hairs taken from -- golf.
Then on to -- found in Casey's truck.
Now what does that mean they could the duct tape find Caylee skull cover both her nose and her not.
The prestigious trying to prove -- could by showing a video pales go with duct tape superimposed.
Over a photo of the toddler.
But while all this scientific evidence really prove -- -- dodges doctor Michael -- and we should note doctor Biden's wife is a former member of the defense team in this case they needed active Biden and -- -- We've seems we've seen so much evidence so far only seeing the prosecution case right answer probably start tomorrow and they will not put on Evan says -- -- but I'm curious.
Is there any evidence so far any reasonable and -- of an accident.
The only this statement by a Jose Baez that.
He will have to.
Give some proof for during the defense part of the case but the question he raised could you drowned in the pool the autopsy findings are just that's consistent with -- the pool as being suffocated.
And I have a problem though a real problem with the way.
This doctor the medical examiner refused to give a cause of death said that that that she couldn't do that cause -- death.
Yet the prosecutor has the anthropologists.
Who never is able to -- -- cause of death.
To give the cause of death in this case of suffocation by a duck tape and to show that very.
It painful picture of Casey smiling at the skull of her -- -- with the duct tape on it I think that.
Is is junk science kind of thing that's very powerful.
To a jury and very.
And as -- grounds for appeal put perhaps but it just.
It is not.
The kind of evidence that should be allowed into the courtroom it has no.
Basis -- -- and the medical examiner realize that.
I think that day actually had at least pressured him to that would mean pearl last again -- -- issue of all right forensic anthropologist.
US service sniff machines and a whole idea that may be very compelling to the jury and very very persuasive to the jury.
But it's a gift to the defense if you give them appellate issue if the later -- with the person is convicted you've handed them something that would give a reversal of the trial so.
I think you and I agree on that went in and you need to -- -- in the second kidnapping of -- that -- them.
But I don't think they -- decomposition according to the expert is that there is greater decomposition evidence.
I'm -- remains that in the -- I assume that you would expect that.
Yet but they're probably -- in the trunk was there was just one hair pattern that seventeen.
So they presented somebody who did it I study the FBI later did a study after discovery was finished.
And that was presented now that when they did a lot of hairs from non decomposed from normal people.
Only two of them two of them showed.
The root banding well that means that non decomposed.
Bodies can show.
Root banding and much was in the trunk of the car wasn't the -- it was made chipped -- above the room with the -- Was missing so that's also an area that subject to.
Having another opinion during the defense case.
And if I was the prosecutor fighting against it say OK -- -- day at the decomposition stage in the trunk and in fact she was moved to add the this six blocks so much sooner than later and that's why don't see the decomposition they hair in the trunk and -- as a defensive backs -- a lot reasons to be here -- in front because of the concept of transference of hair.
Right at that could have yes -- that is -- had been in the trunk of the car.
Didn't decompose and then a few days later goes into the is put someplace else -- does the compose.
Although that said -- so lousy position -- -- defensive connecting to explain that.
No she wasn't in the trunk for six weeks to -- the trunk for two hours it's a lousy defense.
Or she wasn't in the trunk at all but still the time in to vote from that morning 7 in the morning -- -- -- afternoon.
When allegedly according to Casey the baby dies.
And is taken away.
The baby could have been put someplace -- -- put right where she was found.
But that's going to be -- challenged in the next.
A couple of days I assume.
I don't know why I I was not wild about the testimony and a -- -- get the thoughts about that as a gift to the defense appellate issue however.
The mother Cindy testified that she opened the trunk and at a very potent powerful smell and a -- person can make that determination that yes it smelled like something.
Died and they're so these action that sealed video that.
That it would have Greta yes your rights in these comments -- the most powerful about a body being there everything else has not detracted from that I think.
-- -- -- -- -- Thanks and at that and you've got to.
