Jose Baez releases a statement about Casey Anthony video of her reaction to news a child’s body had been found

February 20, 2009

This afternoon, Marti Mackenzie, spokeswoman for Anthony’s attorney Jose Baez, released a statement via e-mail.

“It is outrageous and cruel that they were standing by to record her emotions,” Mackenzie said. “Let’s call this the latest in a ‘tape and release’ strategy that the Sheriff’s Office seems to have used since Casey was first arrested. Even if its not their primary motive, the release of this kind of information has to have an influence on viewers and readers. Just look at the blogs.”

The video was turned over to the State Attorney’s Office according to sheriff’s spokesman, Carlos Padilla.  It is not being released because it is part of an ongoing investigation.

A statement was issued from the jail by spokesman, Allen Moore.  He did not confirm the existence of the video.

“As we have consistently stated, we do not report reaction or demeanor of any inmate in our custody,” Allen said in an e-mailed statement. “Further, Orange County Corrections will not reveal any information about law enforcement investigations or requests.”

Everything about this case has been outrageous and cruel.  It’s outrageous that Casey Anthony didn’t report her child missing for 31 days.  It’s cruel that she refused to aid police in searching for her daughter.  It’s outrageous that the Anthonys dined at the Ritz while investigators combed the woods near their house for the remains of a child.  I could go on and on.

    I find it really interesting that she showed no reaction whatsoever when Padilla pulled the bag of bones outta the river at Blanchard Park earlier on, but the mere mention of the unidentified remains found in those woods sparked an anxiety attack. Ya, proof positive she cares about nobody but herself…

    You are so right Mystrey EVERYTHING about this case has been outrageous. I am just thankful that it seems we have LE, FBI and the State that know what they are doing and can wade through the bs.

    I hope it is okay to use that word. I don’t normally, but this has been a rough week around our house, lol.

    From above Marti Mackenzie says it was outrageous and cruel to record her emotions.
    I will tell you outrageous and cruel- killing your child, putting duct tape over her mouth, letting her rot in a trunk of the car for days, putting her in bags and throw her in the woods for bugs and animals to get at her remains. Now that is cruel.

    OSTELLA- I was begining to wonder if I was the only one who recalled that incident(“bones found at Jay Blanchard Park”) . I haven’t heard anyone(NG,etc.) mention that.Funny, Crasey had NO Reaction to that discovery…..

    Ostella and Stacey
    I was talking about the different reactions last night. I am sure there is a camera where she gets her hour a day tv where she heard about Blanchard Park. That should show a good comparison in her reactions between the two. 🙂
    Just another thing hopefully the state can use with ALL the other evidence they have.

    Jose Baez and his crew just need to shut up or someone need to tape their mouths…whine, temper tantrums, screaming banshees! Why don’t they just face the music and accept the mounting evidence against this sick demonic Casey. Why do they spend so much time trying to seek justice for her when she was the one that committed the heinous murder and those lies ..lies..lies…lies….to the law enforcement, parents, and friends!!! This world doesn’t need a person like Casey to live in this already very troubled world!

    Stacy, Ya, especially when she told LE right off the bat that JBP was one of caylees favorite places, and that she even “looked there” the night Zanny “disappeared” with caylee. But a bag of bones gets dragged outta the river in that exact spot, and she has no reaction… Hmmmmmm.

    Good points all! Another nail in her coffin in my opinion. I would bet LE is definitely planning on using that video in court since they haven’t released it.

    TJ

    I know how ya feel, but they are just doing their jobs. Their jobs are to to create reasonable doubt and to defend their clients. Even if they know she’s guilty, she still has the right to a defense. Somebody’s gotta do it–might as well be Bozo! LOL

    The video of Casey’s reaction when hearing about the body being found will never be released to the public. They may use it in court though.

    Guess What??? There is a clause in the Florida Sunshine Law that states that either side can petition the court to keep all of the evidence from being made public after discovery. The prosecution sought a gag order and Bozo fought it tooth and nail and won, so when he and his team whine about things being made public, they just need to look in the mirror. They did that so they could whine. The statement the PR person made was basically telling you that it will be made public. The other side won’t tell you that. I’m not sure why Bozo and there team think everyone is so stupid as not to see it or why they cut their noses off to spite their faces, but they do. Amazing isn’t it??? Casey lost it because she knew it was Caylee and she was caught. I don’t understand her parents steak dinner at The Ritz. These people never cease to amaze me.

    She will be the star attraction; the most popular one??? Isn’t that what she was striving for anyway? Well, she got it; all eyes are on her. Too bad she will be kept in protected custody. She should be thrown into general population, let her know how it feels to be left at the mercy of the “elements”.

    Rebecca, EXACTLY!!! That’s exactly what’s outrageous and cruel!!!!

    I am so sick of her pathetic defense “team” twisting every single bit of LE’s disclosure into evidence that will SUPPORT CASEY!

    Every!!! Single!!! Bit!!!

    The journal entry. The defense is saying that there is no doubt that it was written in 2003!!! Well, I kind of think the feds just might have a tiny wee idea of what they are doing. I think they would not have entered it into evidence unless they could prove what year it was written in. Just my opinion. We’ll see.

    Casey’s reaction when they found Caylee’s remains. As we all know very well, it was the only time she reacted to any discovery ~ including Blanchard Park. To us it is an obvious reaction to knowing Caylee had at last been found. But, no. Of course the defense is saying she reacted so strongly as any mother would do learning their daughter was most def. dead.

    I know that is the job of defense to do that but there has just been SO MUCH lying and deception muddied by their bullsh^t I’m really worried that defense’s strategy could work and she may actually get away with this.

    I can’t believe there aren’t any laws preventing Bozo from opening his stupid mouth until they are in court. And of course, we all know that he’s going to scream “tainted jury pool” when it was he himself who tainted it!!! Are there really no laws to shut him up until the trial begins?????

    Or at the very least, why doesn’t LE jump in and start beaking off with what we all know is the truth? For example ~ like every time the defense says publicly, “Casey’s reaction was a mother’s natural reaction to learning of their child’s death,” why isn’t LE right in there saying, “No it’s not. It’s a reaction to learning the remains she had tossed into the bush were found and she’s just one step closer to the lethal injection?”

    There have been dozens of opportunities to do that. But they don’t. Nothing from LE except silence. Lots of noise from the defense. Only silence from the prosecution. I know they are handling it the way it is supposed to be handled but the defense is not and I really feel it is going to damage the state’s case. Because I have never followed a case so closely can anyone tell me if this is always the way it works? Is the state always silent? Does the defense always spin the evidence in their favor? I don’t mean at court. I mean publicly ~ at every opportunity until trial begins.

    I’m really, really, really, really, really sick of her defense team! I’m in a grouchy mood after reading Baez this and Baez that. Can’t anybody shut him up?

    Sorry for venting. It just seems so one-sided. Will Caylee ever have justice?

    Again, my apologies for the long rant. I thought if I could just “get it off my chest” I’d feel a little better. But I don’t. I’m still angry.

    I would just love to see someone from the prosecution give a press conference reminding the public that they have solid evidence against Casey and that Bozo and his team are doing nothing more than spinning fact into fiction. But I guess we’ll have to be patient and wait for the trial to begin.

    Niecey, good sleuthing! I find it very disheartening that Bozo fought and won anything! It worries me. And yes, it is amazing ~ and the fact that I would never have known that about the gag order if you hadn’t told me, is exactly what I’m talking about. LE is being too quiet. At least in my grouchy opinion.

    I would LOVE to see a “spokesperson” from the OCSD in front of a camera saying exactly what you said, Rebecca:

    “I will tell you outrageous and cruel- killing your child, putting duct tape over her mouth, letting her rot in a trunk of the car for days, putting her in bags and throw her in the woods for bugs and animals to get at her remains. Now that is cruel.”

    But no. For some reason “our side” can’t do that. Bozo can shoot his mouth off houirly if he feels like it but LE remains quiet.

    Don’t worry Bees Knees he only won, because if he wants to hurt his case it’s his problem. That was actually another one of those Bozo shoots himself in the foot moments. It’s the virus.

  25. February 22, 2009 3:13 pm

    To BeesKnees–I feel exactly the same you do. So much noise with the defense team..crying, feet stomping, mouth going, temper tantrums, etc. Jose Baez is nothing but a big fat baby with dumbo ears who is so inept, inexperienced, and extremely unprofessional! His blabbing excuses are insane and are nonsensical ….too much quiao quiao shooting from the side of his mouth! There has to be a hardnosed and no nonsense judge to be in charge of this case and we need a very tough prosecuting council team like F Lee Bailey, LAPD detective Mark Fuhrman, and Mark Geregos to counsel the prosecuting team. I have this awful feeling that we have a very weak, namby pamby prosecuting team of attorneys that we may end up losing this case and Casey will be walking out scott free from jail! If that happens, the Orlando community will be fit to be tied!

    Thanks TJ! There’s some comfort in knowing I’m not alone, and I’m sure there are many many others feeling as frustrated as we do!

    Do we know right now who the prosecution will be made up of? I can’t seem to find this information. Maybe we won’t know till closer to the trial date.

    Maybe we should be contacting the OCSD and advising them to get some hard-hitters on stand-by. Good Lord . . . I hope they already know that but I think I’ll dash them off an e-mail just for the heck of it. HEE! Maybe they should hire US as their council! Wouldn’t that be grand?

    Jose Baez feels that seeing the reaction to Casey will influence …well seeing Casey in a suit and a bun is a tactic to give the impression that she is something other than what her lifestyle portrayed …

    Bees Knees —

    I think the prosecution is wise to keep it’s mouth shut. That way they cannot be accused of tainting anything. (although Baez keeps trying)

    And remember, the prosecution IS speaking–with every document dump.

    And lets not forget the two most important facts so far in this whole case and they are irrefutable.

    1) Casey Anthony didn’t report her daughter missing for 31 days, and then it was Cindy that did the reporting.

    2) She never acted upset or mentioned to her friends that her daughter was missing. She spent her time partying, stealing, and partying some more for the whole 31 days.

    No gettin’ around, slithering under, or crawling over those facts.

    A little contradictort, itsamysterytome, by saying the prosecution is staying quite yet dumping information out in those documents. You can’t have it both wats. That prosecution team will be ridiculed after Casey get convicted of nothing on the first degree and may get time-served on the piddly fraud nonsense. Hope they put out all the names of the prosecution team, they will never work again in anything to do with Law after this. That is kind of what happened to the Predator Nancy Grace, she cannot work in the legal sector either.

    In Florida there is the Sunshine Law. It’s my understanding that whenever the Defense requests something from the prosecution, then it is made available to the public because of this law. By quiet, I mean they are not engaging in a public conversation with the defense. The defense is being anything but quiet–whining and complaining about everything-

  32. michellefrommadison permalink
    February 25, 2009 3:42 am

    The defense has not whined a single time yet or even complained about anything. But, I guess you just have to understand the source of such an unfounded assertion. Education is key to understanding the dynamics involved.

    “The defense has not whined a single time yet or even complained about anything. But, I guess you just have to understand the source of such an unfounded assertion. Education is key to understanding the dynamics involved.”

    I’ve watched the defense whine and carry on and most of what they’ve been whining about they’ve brought on themselves. I don’t care where the “source” came from. I believe the defense has very definitely whined and complained. Are you saying you don’t believe they have? What “dynamics” involved??

  36. michellefrommadison permalink
    February 26, 2009 1:19 pm

    Whine and carry on??? Brought on by themselves??? Can you point out any part where the defense is said to have whined or complained, because I cannot find it in any search I have completed. And, the “dynamics” are comprised, in part, of the Law and properties of Psychology and Psychiatry.

  37. March 26, 2009 12:52 pm

    i hope she rots in hell. this is one cold bitch,she is so into herself it’s pathetic. wouldn’t surprise me if she hasn’t hit on her lawyer. when i see someone in court and they have committed a murder and they can actually smile, my heart sickens. these people are heartless. i bet she gets life and adapts quite well as long as all sexes think she is hot cuz this is what she is all about. wish she would get the hot seat for punishment. as paris says’that’s hot’.
