FBI are analyzing a tooth and hair found at crime scene and woman claims she has photographs proving the body wasn’t there earlier

woman saying she can prove body wasn't there before

According to OCSO, it will be at least another day before they will be done processing evidence at the scene where the remains of a small child were found.  Prosecutors were at the crime scene today.  They learned that new evidence is continuing to be discovered, and the search area has been increased from 1/2 acre to a full acre. Crime scene technicians hope to piece together not only who this child was, but how she died and possibly when the remains were dumped.

“We expected that it might have been late this afternoon that this scene might have been able to be cleared, but as we continue to discover items at the scene, we’ll continue to hold the scene irregardless of identification. The medical examiner will make that determination as to when it is proper to make a proper announcement regarding identification,” Orange County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Angelo Nieves said.

Authorities also announced that FBI analysts have begun work to identify the remains by using a tooth and hair found at the crime scene.

Also today, a woman claiming to have been part of a Texas Equusearch team that scoured this area. (huh? I thought Tim Miller said they were unable to do a search here due to flooding?) claims to have photographic evidence that proves the remains were not there when they searched.  Investigators reviewed the photos and took her statement.

read the full story and see the video at the link below:

Well, that should be easy enough to prove or disprove.  The woman wouldn’t have been searching alone, so others should be coming forward if what she says is the truth.  IMO, if the area was flooded, the remains may well not have been there at a time when TES might have attempted  to search. They could have been buried and the burial sight disturbed by the water, or the water could have moved the body to it’s final resting place.  Tim Miller stated on video last week that he saw the area, and it looked like the body had been there for a long while.  He also said they weren’t able to search the area properly because of flooding.

    If the bag had been buried in a shallow grave, air trapped inside the bag could cause the bag to float up out of the shallow grave when covered with water. I have read of this happening to regular graves that are recent burials and then are in a flood. The soil is not packed down enough to keep the casket/vault from floating up when the grave floods.

    I heard this on Fox’s new today.It was said that reporters were in the area where the crime scene was back in August and they said the area was not under water at the time.Also one of the reporters said can be proven ,as they have photo’s of the area where the remains have been recently found.What are they saying that there is a chance some one put the remains in the area where the meter man found these remains later? They are saying first it was under water which prevented them from searching this area now the story has changed.

    Who knows what that woman is saying. The article and the related video didn’t say she was a reporter. She said she was a TES searcher. So far as I can tell, no other searcher has come forward.

    WallynWV is correct I think. I’ve read that too. So, even if there wasn’t a body in that spot earlier it means nothing–Of course, I’m sure Baez will try to make it something—–

    Good gracious, let’s hope one it’s a case of one patch of woods resembling another, or the plot will thicken beyond telling. On the one hand, the people who think the Anthonys have been conspiring to cover up for Casey will say they moved the body. On the other hand, they’ll have trouble explaining why they would move it there, and plant evidence tying it to their home…

    Is this little tidbit driving anyone else nuts? I thought the same thing,that the area she was discovered in was underwater when Equusearch went in there. How does this woman know exactly where the body was found?? Only law enforcement and prosecutors have been in there. I personally am not buying her story. No way a picture is going to prove anything. The only thing that bothers me is other people(reporters) saying it wasn’t under water. Was it or wasn’t it? This woman would be helping Casey’s defense so what is she up to??

    In reference to the girl that said the body was not there before, REMEMBER! The body was probably buried but not very deep. When it flooded, the soil erroded and washed away the top soil and the bag became visible.
    I am praying that the duct tape will have Casey Anthony’s fingerprints all over it and Cindy and George beg her to just try to work out a plea. There is no one in the world that wanted to harm that child except CASEY.
    It saddens me that BOZO and his jesters will continue to bilk this case for all the publicity they can. I personally would like to slap that stupid grin off his face.
    Marc Klas is first class. He described the Anthony’s to a tee this evening accusing the family of still not standing up for this innocent child.

    On Greta last night Fox is reporting they were in that area in Aug. and photographed it, and there was no water and they did not detect any decomposition odors,leading one to believe that the body was not there in Aug.

    If the body was put there after Aug. why would someone take it from where they had it and put it where it was found? Why so close to the A’s home? What would be the purpose in doing that?

    Marc Klas is first class,the A’s could take a page from his book.He did everything LE asked him to do when Polly was missing,and NEVER LIED. He doesn’t understand the A’s either,not telling the truth and obstructing the investigation at every turn.

    I’m with you ARTNUT,I’d like to smack the he$$ out of that idiot Baez.

    Mand, I think Artnut is right. It could have been buried in a shallow grave and when it flooded, the water washed away the topsoil exposing the bag.

    Wonder why Tim Miller said it wasn’t searched?

    Mystery, I’m sure you have heard this by now. The same meter reader supposedly called in 3 tips back in Aug.!!! A deputy went to the site on the third call.It will be all over NG tonight. It’s on cnn prime news now.

    They say the worker is credible not a suspect. There are a million questions they want answered. This is insane,DO YOU BELIEVE THIS???? It’s a bombshell every time they turn around. WHAT’S NEXT????

    It should also be on J valez, I think her program is Issues? not sure but it’s on at 7:00pm.just before NG. she fills in for NG on weekends.

    I hope they are right about him being credible because I imagine the Baez and friends will be screaming that the body was planted for sure now.
