Casey Anthony Trial Update, The court was back in session on Friday after finishing early the day before, when an excited Casey Anthony became too ill to proceed, most likely due to the series of graphic photographs presented in the skull of 2 years of age Caylee and still is.As for the images on the screen, Schultz also reported that most “small” bones were gathered. As for the images on the screen, Schultz also reported that most “small” bones were gathered.
“We gathered all teeth but one. We have the largest part of the spine, many of the ribs, all long bones, small bones, hands, feet, left foot and recovered a bone in her right foot. The only reason we have a bone in her right foot because there was activity of carnivores in this part of the skeleton. ” After Casey began sobbing uncontrollably while listening to the testimony, a brief recess was called before Schultz took the stand and resumed again his description.
The forensic expert also testified that the tape covered the mouth of the skeleton, although he was not sure what had covered the openings of the nose.
Dr. Jan Garavaglia, Chief Medical Examiner for Orange and Osceola, which in 2008 was called the cause of Caylee’s death homicide by undetermined, also testified.
She told the jury that part of the right tibia was sent to the FBI for DNA testing and returned a positive result of Caylee.
Garavaglia was the coroner who performed the autopsy of two times and sent the samples to be post-mortem toxicology test as well, which were negative. He acknowledged, however, did not expect to find substances such as chloroform in the bones, and that the absence of positive results in terms of toxicity does not rule out the acute use of them.
Although we could not determine the exact form of death, he believed that the method of death was homicide. She claimed that they could reach conclusions based on the condition of the 2-year-old remains and other factors, such as tape wrapped around her skull.
“The fact that there is no tape anywhere connected to the face of that child tells me that is murder.”
Nervous Garavaglia attorney Cheney Mason said he had no real scientific evidence about how Caylee died, and that its conclusions were based on media and presented circumstantial evidence.
As a medical examiner said it was her job to get more than the skeletal remains into account when determining how someone died.
“There is the fact that she stepped aside to putrefaction is the fact that her death was not reported. Accidental deaths are reported unless there is a reason not to be,” Garavaglia said.
The defense claims that Caylee drowned in the swimming pool of her grandparents, and that Casey did not tell anyone.
The witness celebrity who appears on the Discovery Health Channel program “Dr. G: Medical Examiner, also said that several studies show that the accidental drowning are reported to authorities 100 percent of the time.
“That’s your opinion,” Mason said.
“No, this is systematic observational studies,” she said. “There is also the presence of the tape. No child should have the tape over her mouth when you die.”
Chief Deputy Coroner Gary Utz was also called as a witness on Friday morning to describe the remains of Caylee and the items found with her body.
A sidebar then proceeded in the afternoon to determine whether a video, made by forensic anthropologist Michael Warren, could be admitted as evidence.
The animated video shows the skull of Caylee with tape superimposed on a photo taken last child when she was still alive, to show the position of the tape appeared on the skull.
“The purpose of the demonstration is to show that it is possible that the width of the tape that covers both the child’s nose and mouth…,” said Warren.
Defense attorney Jose Baez said: “This overlap is no more unpleasant than a fantasy. It is not supported by all that can be testified.” State accused of just throwing any idea without any proof.
“I do not know where we are, but I’ve been hearing a lot about chloroform. Today is the duct tape. Let’s throw everything against the wall and see what sticks.”
After a brief 15-minute recess called by the Chief Judge Belvin Perry to determine if the video was actually a piece of valid, Perry returned and ruled to include the video, despite its potential to influence the jury on the basis of emotions.
His decision, he said, was based on previous court cases and explained that there was no blood, and that the jury had seen the pictures of Caylee’s skull and remains in the past.
Perry also said he would instruct the jury to understand that the video is just to show the evidence supporting the expert’s testimony.
Casey, 25 years if convicted, could face the death penalty. He is charged with seven counts including first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, investigators and misleading.
