Casey Anthony evidence: Over 200 pages of documents released in case (read here)
Orlando, Fla. – On Thursday, over 200 pages of new documents were released in the Casey Anthony case revealing one of Casey’s high school friends wore a wire for the FBI when speaking with her. In addition, the documents show defense experts question the validity of testing done on the trunk of Casey’s vehicle. The transcript of a phone interview between a Texas EquuSearch volunteer and authorities was also part of the evidence released.
Casey is charged with the first degree murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony, in the summer of 2008. The little girl’s remains were found in a wooded area near the Anthony family home in December of that year.
The official documents released include information from Navy Cpl. Mark Hawkins, who had several conversations with Casey around the time Caylee went missing. According to the evidence, Hawkins wore a wire for the FBI when speaking with the Florida mother accused of murder. Despite the conversations and surreptitious recordings, investigators concluded no admissions of guillt regarding the murder of Caylee were obtained.
In addition, the new evidence reveals that defense experts have serious questions regarding the validity of testing done on the car trunk of the vehicle driven by Casey. For instance, they alleged the discovery of chloroform and signs of human decomposition in the car trunk were not completely valid.
Also released Friday is a transcript of a phone interview between Texas EquuSearch volunteer Linda Ann Davis and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. According to Davis, she searched the area where Caylee’s remains were later found.
