The State Attorney’s Office released three CDs of information — in response to public records requests — at 8:30 a.m. News media are reviewing the information now and you can see updates below.  I’ll post links to the actual discovery as it is made available.

Included in the newly released evidence are dozens of investigative photographs. Photographed items include: a syringe, a Gatorade bottle, car seat and duct tape.  Also included are televised video reports during the search. (including Lee Anthony, Casey’s brother.) Several manuals were released that detail quality assurance guidelines at FBI labs, and reports on the water depth at the body location.


Also released was news footage from the period when the Anthonys’ were looking for Caylee.  The footage is from WFTV-Channel 9  and shows clips of Caylee playing and looking at a book, a flier about Caylee and footage of Casey speaking on the jail phone. Appearing twice on each disk is a few seconds of footage showing the duct tape that was used to stick fliers to utility poles and store windows.


The photos of the knives are very interesting.  WFTV is speculating that the knife may have been used to cut the duct tape.  Interesting…..

    itsamystery nice to see ya,
    you saw this ,2 down 😆

    The spokeswoman for Casey Anthony’s defense team has resigned.

    Marti Mackenzie, who has spoken on behalf of defense attorney Jose Baez since February 2009, announced Tuesday she quit.

    All media inquiries about Casey Anthony’s defense are now to be directed to Liz Brown at the DePaul University College of Law Legal Clinic, where defense attorney Andrea Lyon works.

    Reached by phone, Mackenzie declined to discuss the specifics about her resignation.

    Mackenzie is no stranger to Central Florida lawyers and reporters. She has more than 20 years of experience in legal cases with high-profile defendants, including former astronaut Lisa Nowak

    Hi mikka! Thanks for the update.

    Shall we speculate on Marti’s resignation?

    Not as much “spokesman” work (PAY $$) available since the case has simmered down a bit?

    Marti’s pay not what was promised and/or expected?

    Disagreements with the defense and its Kronk progression?

    Got better things to do.

    The new Liz Brown more under the thumb of Lyon, works for free, and gets goodies for taking the deflection.

    It’s not fair to speculate, and I don’t know anything about a spokesman position, but it’s fun to guess.

    I thought those very thoughts! My guess is that Lyon wanted more control.

    I also wonder if perhaps Mackenzie didn’t want to be tied to this case another year.

    Hey Mystery! Have you seen all of the procedural manuals? My eyes are like this 😯 ! I think they are the key to figuring out all of the previous testing, but I think we may need Val Hal for this one. I may need compresses for my eyes.

    Yes, I just added them. Lordy! Lordy! Yep–those are definitely fodder for Valhall!

    I thought so, too midget—interesting photos.

    I watched the video and I noticed (after all the body language stuff we’ve learned) how as he spoke he shook his head no. Makes me wanna go back and watch some more old videos to see if I can spot something….but, I don’t know if my stomach is up to watching Cindy re-runs.

    I think Marti’s resignation is extremely significant.

    Marti works for a hype agency that was hired by a secret family that has been funding the defense.

    Seems to me this may signal the end of the funds or a break by the funders with Jose.

    I had forgotten that, Spacely! Well, well, well! And she has refused to say why she left.

    I really wonder why Marti left. I live in Connecticut & sure would like to know who this (supposed) mystery person is that is funding the defense.

    I too remember ValHall did that in depth look at the tape piece by piece & how the cuts matched up. It’ll be interesting to see if any of those edges are rough enough to look like cut by a knife or Bees theory about teeth!

    Judge Turns Down Prosecution’s Request For Private Hearing

    The judge in the case against Casey Anthony has turned down a request from the prosecution for a private hearing without the defense present.

    Jose Baez told WESH 2 that Judge Stan Strickland has ruled that Anthony’s defense should be allowed to be present at that closed door hearing.

    In court papers, the prosecution said they had new evidence they felt they could only share behind closed doors without the defense or media present.

    Strickland has yet to set a date on when that hearing will happen. It is unknown what that evidence is.

    from wftv ,Eyewitness News was told the Anthonys and their lawyer, Brad Conway, were looking for a lawyer to represent Casey who was willing to forego getting money upfront. Longtime Orlando attorney Robert Buonauro told Eyewitness News on Wednesday the Anthonys and Conway wanted to replace Casey’s defense attorney, Jose Baez, early on in the case.

    Buonauro says Conway said Casey and her family were broke and, if he were willing to do without money upfront, there was the possibility of some sort of defense fund or book or movie rights down the road. Buonauro said no
