The panel today consisted of Simon and Jan Barrett, Maine based investigator Peter Hyatt, crime write and author Denny Griffin, and news hound for WSKY 97.3 TJ Hart.

Did we break any new news? Probably not. But we certainly managed to put both the Caylee Anthony and Haleigh Cummings cases under the microscope. Although all of us talk often, this is the one opportunity that we get to talk as a crowd. It is amazing what happens when you get this amount of investigative power around a table.

It is becoming clearer and clearer that Jose Baez is clutching to ever smaller straws in his defense of Casey Anthony. The panel was pretty vocal about the defense strategy, are Jose Baez and the big mouthed Chaney Mason at loggerheads? Will Andrea Lyon bow out to keep her perfect record? One thing is certain, Baez has lost his smirk in the court room. Suddenly it is not a game, this is a murder trial. As the Caylee Anthony case creeps closer to entering the courtroom the more dire the situation becomes for all of them involved in the defense.

I jokingly suggested that someone should start a ‘sports book’ on how long the ‘pro bono’ defense team could last. The panel seemed pretty certain that if the Death Penalty stays on the table, the Angel Of Death Row will be off the case faster than a Toyota with a accelerator problem.

While there has not been a huge amount of hard news over on the Haleigh Cummings case, there have been developments in the drug case that give one pause for thought. Last weeks gaff in St Johns over a court scheduling conflict really bother me. It seems like it was only the judge that was kept out of the joke. The panel tossed that idea around a bit.

One thing is very clear, the PCSO feel that they can obtain justice. They may not be able to pin the murder of Haleigh Cummings on a single person, but they are finding ways to obtain justice.
