Our panel this week consisted of Jan Barrett, Ms. Pickles, and Denny Griffin. We had callers from as far afield as Canada. It is good to know that these criminal investigations are getting such wide attention.
The discussion started with the Caylee Anthony case, a raft of new evidence was released this week by the Florida prosecutors. Not for reasons of causing mischief as the defense would love to claim, but because they are bound by the Florida Sunshine Law. The evidence must be shared if another party, in this case the press requests it.
There has been a great deal of speculation about the duct tape found on the skeletal remains, and the duct tape recovered from a gas can at the Anthony home. The FBI analysis was a serious blow to the defense efforts, but hardly the smoking gun that many people had expected. The tape had the same branding (most popular brand in America), and the same chemical composition. It ‘could’ be from the same roll, or the same batch. However, this is hardly damming, and gives the defense lots of outs’
There are some diary entries dated Jun 21, alas there is no confirmation that they were written in 2008. If the FBI can nail them down, this could be the smoking gun.
This isÂ the happiest I have been in a very long time. I hope that my happiness will continue to grow.
…no regrets, just a bit worried. I just want for everything to work out okay. I completely trust my own judgment and knew that I made the right decision. I just hope that the end justifies the means. I just want to know what the future will hold for me. I guess I will soon see.
ThereÂ are also reports that Casey’s reaction were caught on video when the remains were found, yet it took over a week to identify them. A grieving mother would not have reacted the way Casey did!
The Haleigh Cummings case is equally strange. A young girl goes missing under the very nose of the babysitter/girlfriend. Police are seemingly baffled, they have no firm suspects, but clearly they are looking closely at the ‘family’.
Beast from Canada had an interesting idea, there is a company selling a GPS microchip that can be implanted in an infant, and much like the Lo-Jack auto system, when your car or child goes missing, these folks can locate where they are.
You can hear to the whole show here.
