Casey Anthony Trial Updates

Casey Anthony Trial Updates, Yesterday marked a day in the history of the legal system. Like when DNA was first used as evidence in court and was called “junk science”, yesterday had similar tones with the introduction of odor decompositionanlysis. This is the first time this type of forensicanlysis has been used in a murder trial. Dr. Arpad Vass a senior forensic anthropologist at a research center affectionately called “The Body Farm” was the only witness who took the stand yesterday in the ongoing trial of Casey Anthony.
In the morning questioned by Jeff Ashton, attorney proscuting included a very frank discussion about the process of human decomposition, and the conclusions referred to evidence that was presented from Casey Anthony’s car, a Pontiac Sunfire.
When Vass wondered what happens when you opened the can containing a piece of carpet in the trunk of Anthony, Vass said, “Well, I jumped back a foot or two, I was surprised that one can be as small as could contain an odor so strong. “Ashton then asked what he thought the smell was. Dr. Vass said: “I think it’s the smell of human decomposition.”
Dr. Vass told the court that the evidence was made on the carpet, said there was a “scandalously high” of chloroform in the carpet. Much higher than one would expect to find in the everyday environment.
Chloroform is a chemical that was used as an anesthetic in the early days of medicine. The searches of chloroform and how to make chloroform were found in Antonio team at home.
The afternoon was mainly devoted to questioning by lawyer Jose Baez, in an effort to discredit the testimony of Dr. Vass.
Most commentators agreed that Baez had a hard time doing that. Vass was a nice man, but clearly passionate about her field of expertise and science. It was called very “nice” from the standpoint of a juror, byanlysts watching the trial.
Today the state is recalling witnesses Gerardo Bloise, a researcher at the crime scene.
Blaise said earlier in the trial and the methods used in the extraction of evidence that was found on Anthony’s car.
Prosecutor questions Bloise on a garbage bag that was found in the trunk of the Sunfire when officials took possession of the car.
Prosecutors are trying to prove that Anthony suffocated her daughter, Caylee, taped in 2008, claiming that traces of decomposition were found in her car. His defense lawyer says the boy drowned in the pool of their grandparents.
The two years of the skeletal remains were found in a wooded area not far from the home of her grandparents. Anthony has pleaded not guilty, and if convicted could be sentenced to death.
