Fingerprints on the duct tape or not? Contradictions from new’s sources in the latest Caylee Anthony documents
A second news station is saying, no, there are no fingerprints on the duct tape. Channel 6 news sources contradict WESH2 news sources. WESH2 sources implied there were fingerprints on the tape and it wouldn’t be good for the defense. (see previous post) Which is it? I guess we’ll have to wait til the documents are released to the public and read it for ourselves.
Below is the information from Channel 6.
Sources told Local 6 News Monday that no fingerprints were located on the duct tape found wrapped around the skull of Caylee Anthony.
Hundreds of pages of additional documents are expected to be released in the case against the slain toddler’s mother, Casey Anthony, as early as Tuesday.
The girl’s skull was wrapped in duct tape, and sources told Local 6 News that sheriff’s investigators headed to the Anthony house the day the discovery was make, looking for evidence that might link Casey Anthony or items in the house to the crime scene.Sources said the soon-to-be released documents will show that investigators never found a duct tape roll at the home but did find a similar piece of tape on a gasoline can in the house. Sources also told Local 6 News that FBI lab tests reveal no fingerprints were found on the duct tape.
Celebrity bounty hunter Leonard Padilla, who has been involved with the case since he bailed Casey Anthony out of jail, claimed the opposite last week on national TV. A tabloid magazine also reported that Casey Anthony’s fingerprints were found on the tape.Sources inside Casey Anthony’s defense team said they are “sick of Padilla’s lies” and want him to “go away.”
Here’s what WESH2 reported yesterday.
According to a source close to the investigation, test results from the FBI crime lab on the duct tape found on slain toddler Caylee Anthony’s skull are in that new batch of evidence.When asked by WESH 2’s Bob Kealing if Casey Anthony’s fingerprints were on the duct tape, a source with direct knowledge of the investigation said, “This is not going to be good news for the defense.”
