Today was a half day of court as Judge Perry had an obligation to attend to. Maureen Bottrell, FBI examiner, testified about soil soil found on shoes collected from the Anthony residence. The soil did not match the soil from the area where Caylee’s remains were found. However, she admitted under cross-examination, that just because there was not a match did not mean that she wasn’t there. Madeline Montgomery then testified about the hair and toxicology. She said that the tests she ran did not show any trace of drugs. However, upon cross-examination, she admitted that hair is not the best source to get drug levels. Dr. Michael Sigman testified about air samples from the trunk. He said he could not say that there had been a body in the trunk. However, he admitted that he did his tests days after the lining was removed. Michael Rickenbach, FBI chemist, testified about tests he performed on items from the car and said he found no significant traces of chloroform. Karen Lowe, FBI forensic expert, testified about hair and duct tape.
It seems, however, the biggest news of the day came from CNN. George and Cindy Anthony’s lawyer, Mark Lippman, told CNN that the Anthony’s do not believe in Casey’s innocence. However, they do not want her to get the death penalty. This second part does not surprise me. as I believe most parents would not want to have their child sentenced to death. I guess I am not really surprised that her parents doubt her innocence, especially after listening to everything in court. But I am surprised that it was said publicly. But then again, it is the Anthony family, and nothing should surprise me anymore! I’m guessing that the photo above was taken after Casey found out about her parents opinion! This picture realy does disturb me too. Very creepy.
