Ricardo Morales–Did he have anything to do with the death of Caylee Anthony?

March 9, 2009

ricardo-morales-standingThursday, March 12 is the date set to hear several of Jose Baez’ motions.  One of the motions to be addressed, as most of you already know,  is the contents of  Ricardo Morales computer, including deleted files.  It appears Baez is  looking to somehow connect Ricardo Morales with the chloroform searches on the Anthony computer and the icon on his MySpace  about chloroforming women.

Is he just spinning his wheels? Ricardo  posted the chloroform icon on his MySpace, according to him, around the first part of January, 2008.  He removed it, again according to him,  after seeing something about Casey and chloroform on the news after she was arrested.  Morales dated Casey from January 23, 2008 through mid-April, 2008, though they had sex as late as  June 9th.  The chloroform searches on the Anthony’s computer were on March 17th and March 21st.

Ricardo’s computer was turned over to LE voluntarily and it was noted that the day he turned it over to them, some of his files appeared to have been deleted.  It was later determined that in the process of the computer’s scheduled deletion of internet history, whatever is removed shows up automatically as deleted files.  From this, LE deduced that Morales did not maliciously destroy information. The deleted files were located and according to police were of no importance in the case.  Those files have not been made public.  Baez is seeking the release of the forensic analysis, screen shots, printouts, and Excel charts  of the deleted files plus copies of the screen shots and printouts of what was still on his computer.

Is Baez onto something or looking for some clue the police missed?  Is it just coincidence that Ricardo had posted an icon referencing chloroform? (according to him, he found that icon on the internet and put  it on his MySpace  because he thought it was “kind of funny”) He said he never discussed chloroform with Casey and she never mentioned the icon on his MySpace page.  He also stated that Casey had access to his computer and could have used it to conduct searches. According to LE  she used it on February 9th to access her Yahoo acct. and on April 8th to access her FaceBook account.  Ricardo said he had never used Casey’s laptop or the  computer at the Anthony home.

Pretty straightforward stuff, and apparently verified.  So, what is Baez hoping to accomplish here?  Does he think LE has withheld something in the deleted files?  Guess we’ll find out, cuz’  thanks to the Sunshine Law, if Baez gets the reports, so will we.

Below is  Ricardo’s July 25, 2008 interview with LE.  It’s very interesting if you haven’t read it or would like to refresh your memory.

    I think he is just trying to give some kind of reasonable doubt for the jury pool. He wants them to look anywhere and everywhere except at Casey.

    I would agree with you topcat08. This is just as credible as the time Jose Baez said shortly before the body was found, “Caylee is alive”.

    For the purposes of his case at that time, it was important to say that. He had absolutely nothing to go on but he put it out there nonetheless. This is the same thing he is doing with this poor unfortunate person who had the misfortune to have sex with Casey. Will it really serve Casey’s interests to bring up the Playboy of the Month everytime they want to cast blame away from the “wonderful mother and the devoted daughter”? Seems rather counter-productive in my mind.

    I agree with you Top Cat and Boston, “Reasonable Doubt”, that’s what this is all about. He sung that song about Caylee being alive and yet he publicly said if she told the truth it would put her away for the rest of her life. I personally think those were conflicting statements. I think Bozo is grasping at straws and we will probably hear of a new target every month until the trial. I’m wondering if he will finger a family member before all is said and done. Remember it was Jesse last, now it’s Ricardo. The meter reader has been subject to scrutiny as well. Who will it be next??? Great Post Mystery!

    Have they pointed the finger at Tony Lazzaro yet?

    I don’t think they have officially yet. Maybe he’s next month? I think the meter reader was first after Caylee was found, then Jesse, now Ricardo, because Zenaida is suing after months of being fingered, and they have to get out of that one.

    It would not surprise me if they try and blame it on someone in the family. After all–a lot of the evidence can be traced directly to the Anthony house.

    Hi Mystery and everyone, this is just pure bogus crap and Baez knows it. No one in their right mind would buy Morales had anything to do with Caylee’s death. Bozo is so stupid, they are sticking with the Nanny and her sister Samantha threw casey to the ground in Blanchard Park and gave Casey a script to follow. Now if Morales was involved, then he had to be involved also with zanny and Samantha and since we know they do not exist then Morales could not have been involved now could he? It is dumb strategy of bozo to even bring up cloroform since casey’s trunk was saturated with it. Bozo cannot say caylee was killed with chloroform and Morales is involved when Zanny and Samantha took Caylee in the park, and oh let’s not forget, Casey said Zanny’s intention was to teach her a lesson and then bring caylee back and timer 55 was the amount of days zanny was going to keep Caylee. Shouldn’T BOZO Stick to one defense here? Hellooooo like maybe the one casey has maintained was the whole truth and that was the story she was going to stick with as it was the truth. Please let’s all pitch in and send BOZO a custom made dunce hat.

    Knight owl, I know, I’ve been wanting to send Bozo a “Stupid Helmet” for awhile now…I think he thinks of himself as some kinda superhero…but his cape is made of wet paper towels safety-pinned onto his cheap suits…

    Whew! Knight Owl! My head is spinning! Maybe that’s the plan–Spin so many stories that the jury becomes dizzy enough to fall off their chairs, bang their heads, get amnesia, and conveniently forget the COLD HARD UNBENDING FACTS in this case. They’ll then declare her, “Innocent!”

    Ostella–lol.

    The only real plus in this type of defense strategy is Casey doesn;t have all that many friends and only so many supporters. She can’t blame Lee, George or Cindy. Casey tried to blame an anonymous person and now Jose is trying to go after her lovers (such an odd term for a person who couldn;t feel love for anyone).

    Jose should avoid going down this road because the potential for exposing possible “Johns” is going to erupt if someone wants to get their 15 minutes of fame.

    I agree Boston–especially about the Johns.

  12. March 9, 2009 8:51 pm

    Hi ostella, your post is so funny. maybe we should do the whole nine yards and get bozo a matching suit to go along with his dunce hat or dumb helmet one. afterall, we should not spare any cost for a clown as fine as he believes he is. lol

  13. March 9, 2009 8:53 pm

    Hi Boston, good observation. Bozo should read your blog, Ah, uh, um, that is if he can read.lol

  14. March 9, 2009 8:58 pm

    Hi Mystery, i think your on to something with the spinning head theory. That could work alright as bozo and his sleeze team can definitely cause dizziness and light headedness.Then you add the A’S to the mix and viola, jurors become entranced as well.

    Unfortunately, I think Baez is underestimating the intelligence of the future jury.

    If we poor bloggers noticed the discrepancies, it’s reasonable to assume everyone will.

    I like the journey Baez is taking Casey on. It’s called a one-way ticket to the Big House.

    I like that Casey has inept representation. I’d hate it if she had a shark who actually knew what he was doing.

    Plus, Baez just makes the whole circus more interesting.

    And I like the idea of the paper towel cape! I can picture it on him.

    The cape should read “Super Hose”.

    Dumbo is throwing anything and everything out there in hopes something sticks..it’s obvious he has no defense no strategy he’s far to busy seeing to it that he has covered all ways to make money off this babies remains..there are a lot of high profile experts to be paid and that’s his main agenda…KC’s defense is on the back burner..so he throws things like Tony L. and the chloroform out there..file motions..so he looks to KC that he is doing all he can for her.

    Will Tony L. sue for defamation of character as Zenaida G.has done?

  18. ostella permalink

    Yes, we should send him a whole ensemble! I’m thinking OJ Simpson NFL jammies, the paper towel cape (safetypins included), a Johnny Cochrane lunchbox that doubles as a briefcase, a pink helmet with stars on it (for outdoors), and a pink duncecap for all courtroom appearances. We can box it all up, decorate it with hearts and shamrocks, and send it off…

    Oh, and we can’t forget to include instructions to soak the cape in water before using! Maybe we should include a nice bottled water?

    I agree with you all about Baez’s level of intelligence and I love it that Casey has such a dunce for her defense. BUT . . . the special lawyers that he’s hired are not stupid and that worries me.

    We can all see the direction the defense is taking ~ throwing everything “out there” to see what sticks, right? So in the end who will decide what evidence the jury will hear when it goes to trial? For example this story. Will Bozo be allowed to put Ricardo and all of his red herrings on the stand in order to cast doubt in the juror’s minds? Well, obviously. I know that he will do that. I mean, who decides how much of that he’ll be allowed to do?

  23. MAND permalink

    I still have this feeling this is not going to go to trial..so he doesn’t have to put together a defense…he wants to get everything in place for the money that he can make off this..book deals..movie deals..speaking engagements etc..once he has that all in tack all tied up he will talk to her and try for a plea deal..he will tell her they have to much evidence against her..that the best way to go is to try for a lesser charge…what that would be I haven’t a clue..but if they can get a plea..no one has to be paid..none of the experts..LKB..may demand something but I’m sure Dumbo worked all that out prior to her signing on.

    I could be wrong..but it just seems like this is something he would do..he would get what he came for MONEY and NAME FAME..and he would not be in the loser column.

    Ohhhh Mand, you may be very close to the truth and I would say the prosecution would have good reason to cry “conflict of interest.”

    Sophie, I agree with you, except I think Baez is not so dumb with this one. He’s smart enough to know he needs a “dream team”. Bee’s Knees is right. We should be worried about that.

    Ostella, you should be a comedic writer-I can picture Baez perfectly through your words.

    Ricardo is still a witness for the prosecution. If there’s nothing on his computer to implicate him in anything other than having sex with Casey and posting an icon, he won’t do Baez much good. I guess if it comes down to it, it’s how strong a witness he is for the prosecution and how strong the defense’ argument against him is. Another reason to fear the dream team.

    I don’t see how R.M. would help the defense that much if at all..it was strictly sex the last month or so of their relationship..and someplace for her to crash..I think it shows she used him just as she did all the other guys in her life..R.M. was out when her new guys from Fusion came on scene.

    I’m just gonna keep running with this one, I can’t help it, its too fun. I think we should send LKB a superhero sidekick costume (she is brimming with comedic potential, after all). I’m thinking shiny pink unitard, a pig nose, aviator goggles, and tiny little origami wings scotch-taped to her back. Maybe a tiny tiara as well.

    LMAO, ostella. Where’s Motherclucker or John? One of them needs to parody your vision of Baez and Baden.
