Casey Anthony – Going To The Dogs And The Internet


August 2005 ~ June 2008

Don’t know about you, but I really felt Bloise, Vass and Foregy ran rings around Baez yesterday.  I’d love to know what the jury thinks of him at this point.  Does anyone think Baez has scored any points?

I guess Baez isn’t aware that search and rescue dogs and cadaver dogs have been used forever, around the world, with amazing results.

George and Cindy are in their usual spot. 

Baez renews his previous objections because the State is bringing in Deputy Kristin Brewer, Bones’ handler in today.

Kristin Brewer, now Sgt., is called.

She has 16 years experience.  She is Supervisor of Patrol as well as handling Bones.

Brewer reviews and identifies Bones’ records of certification, training and veterinary visits.

The records are entered into evidence.

Brewer met with Foregy several times to discuss how he trained Bones.  Brewer and Bones attended several training programs.  Andy Redmond’s program was one of the first.

Brewer logs all training that Bones undergoes.  Like Gerus, Bones was trained in all kinds of environment.

Casey looks totally detached and zoned out.

Bones has been trained on blood, placenta, bones, semen, teeth, etc.

Linda Burdick has Brewer got through the training records.

Bones is also trained in human remains, water searches.  Targets are usually submerged.  Bones had no false alerts or misses during the training.

Bones’ final trained alert is a ‘sit’.

Bones is trained on human remain odor – he can alert after the remains have been removed.

Linda has Brewer go through the times Bones was called to search for human remains.  On many of the calls Bones did not alert because it was animals remains, not human.

Bones has never given a false alert.

Bones has located small human bones after the body has been removed.

All this lengthy foundation is necessary because of Baez and his objection to cadaver dogs as being reliable.  The handlers and their dogs are highly trained and professional and don’t work off speculation as Baez would have the jury believe!

Brewer was called to Hopespring Drive 7/1708 around 8pm.  There wasn’t a lot of light, but that does not inhibit Bones.

Deputy Foregy asked her to search the backyard and informed her that Gerus had run a search, but that’s all she was told.

She placed his search collar on and gave him the command to search.  Bones gave a final alert in the area of the playhouse/sandbox which was the same area Gerus hit on!

Brewer returned the next day.  The OCSO has scrapped and dug in the dirt and Bones did not alert.

Cross by ‘Pop Tart’…

Alerts that a cadaver dog does, you don’t give specific commands, like find me blood, bones?  Correct, it’s one command.

If I left some blood from a nail that came off, Bones could find that?  Correct.

You don’t train on searching old cars, do you.  Correct.

Because you don’t know the history of the car or what happened in the car?  Someone died or bled?  Correct, we try to search the most recent events.

Deputy Foregy informed you where he searched at Hopespring?  No.

Did he tell you his dog went into the playhouse?  No.

You never deployed your dog inside the home?  No.

Were you told not to?  No, I searched where I was asked to.

Did you search the porch?  No, I was not asked to, it wasn’t my case.

Are you aware of any searches in the home?  No.

Wow, Baez never did anything that quickly!

No redirect, Sgt. Brewer is released.

Next, Detective Sandra Cawn Osborne.  OCSO computer forensics examiner.  She has a very varied background in LE.

She has conducted hundreds of examinations  on anything that may contain digital files…computers, cell phone, PDAs.

Witness accepted as an expert in computer analysis.

She examined Casey’s Nokia cell phone that she identifies and it is entered into evidence.

She used Cellbrite Data Extraction to search for information on Zenaida Gonzalez.  She didn’t find Zenaida on the Sim card.

She doesn’t evaluate the data and turned the information report over to detectives.

She examined a laptop and a desktop computer she was given as well as several cameras.

She located video files of Caylee dated 6/15/08.  G’grandpa video.

Osborne used Encase software to examine the computers.  The data on the desktop hard drive was connected Writeblocker which places the drive in read-only and she copies that to another drive to work with.

‘Special’ recess called…

Osborne takes the jury through how a computer hard drive works and the various search engines available.

Zenaida Gonzalez was found in the cache dated July 16, 2008.  The name was Googled and addesses in Florida were searched.

Osborne says the Anthony browser caches were rarely cleared.  Casey however, cleared her Firefox history while Yuri was sitting in the next room!  George and Cindy didn’t use Firefox.

The owner password on the computer was ‘rico23′ and was setup March 2008.  This would have been Casey!  She was dating Ricardo and his age at the time was 23!  Doh!

Internet files can show user account, not who is sitting at the keyboard.

Osborne searched chloroform and variations of the spelling.  The word appeared in a deleted space.  A Firefox, complete history record, file was retrieved.

She also examined Ricardo Morales’ computer.  Digital photo’s of Caylee were found.

What date was the camera set to at the time of the photograph?



Forensics are usually pretty dry and boring, but so much of this long, dragged-out crap is because of Pop Tart Baez!

Linda Burdick is done.

‘Pop Tart’ on cross…

There are two profiles on the computer?  Yes.

But that doesn’t mean only two people used the computer?  True.

Yeah, I stopped reporting this drivel!   ‘Pop Tart’ not only doesn’t understand computer forensics he scored no points here!

Detective Osborne is excused!

Judge Perry calls a lunch break.

Casey has a new ploy to avoid the jury and has been using all day.  Look at the defense table.  She has levered her chair to the lowest setting, placing her about chin height to the table.  She has also kept a binder in her lap to read from!  Rarely does she look up. LOL!

Sgt. Kevin Stenger is next.  OCSO computer crime unit.  He would be Osborne’s boss.  This will pretty much be a snoozer, so don’t expect a whole lot of notes here.

He does have a hefty CV in computer forensics, he is accepted as an expert witness.

Using a tech tool, Cache Back, he was able to extract a complete, deleted file off Firefox.  The file spanned the period of March 4, 2008 through March 21, 2008.

He created two reports for March 17 and the 21st.  Those searches contained the chloroform information.

Stenger identifies the reports he generated.  Entered into evidence.

Pop Tart on cross…

You don’t know when the file was deleted?  No.

You don’t know the circumstances around why they were deleted?  No.

These searches were done well before Caylee Marie Anthony went missing?  I’m not sure.

Baez rambles on a bit more and finally ends.

Linda does some cleanup, Baez asks a convoluted follow-up question and Stenger is released.

State calls John Bradley.  He developed the Cache Back program.  He used to be LE in Canada and has extensive training in LE and computer science.

He goes to great length explaining the software, his teaching in software and forensics and he’s pretty much here to confirm what Sgt. Stenger testified to.

I adore Ms. Burdick, but she sometimes she gets bogged down in way too much detail.  My eyes are glazed over. TMI, TMI, TMI!!!

Chloroform, alcohol, death, self-defense, hand-to-hand combatlinks are generated from the 1st query on Wikipedia and some were clicked on.

Not for nothing, I seriously don’t understand how this bolsters the State’s case at all, plus they lost the audience with this!

Judge Perry calls afternoon break and none to soon.

Next 3 entries were auto-generated.

So, Casey did a search on chloroform and then just clicked on a bunch of auto-generated information.

Now we get some user-generated information mixed with the auto-generated info.

A MySpace profile shows up as a cookie.

A view album for MySpace was hit.

Another 5 MySpace hits, user-generated.

Now on to March 21…

More user-generated activity searching chloroform.

Next, how to make ‘chloraform’ then spelled correctly as chloroform.

Some items looked at were actually booked-marked.

Google search on neck breaking!

MySpace, read message in inbox.  A ton of FaceBook activity followed all this on the 21st, ending at 3:47pm.

It was a long and winding road to arrive here, but long and the short of all this is, the hours of the searches pretty much pins this on Casey…her parents would have been at work during these searches.

Pop Tart up….carp, he admits he will be repetitive to some of Ms. Burdick’s questioning.

You were hired? No, I agreed to be a witness.

There is no remuneration?  There could be, but we haven’t discussed it.

You did this for advertising?  No.  Only recently I put a reference on my website.  Firefox 2 is well, long gone.

This guy ain’t no gun for hire…geez!

So, Baez is not only a science expert and a forensic expert, he is now a computer expert!  My invitation to the graduation party must have been lost in the mail!

Baez keeps bringing up FaceBook and MySpace and we already know Cindy and George didn’t use them.  OK, Cindy did once!!!

I refuse to follow Baez’s questioning, line-by-line through 57 pages…my lobotomy hasn’t healed and my meds ain’t nowhere near effective enough!

Linda does some cleanup…

Pop Tart back and asks about this report he wrote.  Oops he didn’t write it, it was generated by his program Cache Back which you and I can purchase and use. This was a huge, huge tactical error by the defense!

Can you say asshat?

An objection forces a sidebar…

Judge Perry releases the jury at 4:54pm.

Mercifully Bradley is allowed to run, screaming, from the witness stand, only to have to return in the morning…accccckkkk.

Yup, I stopped transcribing a while ago.  This has been one of the most painfully boring days ever.  I felt like I was caught between the dog and the fire hydrant!

Don’t bother to suffer through today’s videos folks!

Tonight’s reading assignment: Casey Anthony’s Lawyer Jose Baez Has Trials of His Own

When asked why this trial is taking so long…stand up and shout…BAEZ

    I had read the story of Baez and his problems and I am once again flabbergasted as to how this idiot got to be the lead consel on the biggest trial in America right now. So many of his peers are saying its obvious that he is in way over his head. This brings back my fear that the Killer will get a new trial. The appeals court has to reverse this obvious slam dunk guilty verdict.It is after all a death penalty case.
    I am a death panalty advocate on most heinous murder cases, but in this case I tend to find myself hoping for life without parole! I secretly fantasize the Ape faced loser being beaten everyday of her life.
    And Baez hopefully has to chase ambulances for the rest of his life along with his old idiot assistant.

    Hey jim! Baez is lead counsel by Casey’s choice. Over his head or not, she has faith in him for whatever reason.

    This is his second lead in a murder case. He lost the first and on appeal, was not nailed for ineffective counsel. Google Nilton Diaz.

    I tend to agree with your hopes, but it will be the jury who decides..the jury who supposedly hasn’t followed the case as in-depth as we have!

    Have faith, my friend! 😉

    Don–My question is this——Can one mental midget hire another mental midget in a death penalty case without triggering an appeal ? I realize Casy hired him but I cannot lose this sick premonition that the Appeals court will deem her as nuts as her lead consel. Please tell me I am wrong !!

    Yup and yup. Baez is too new and not death penalty certified, hence Cheney Mason, who is as old as God and done a bazillion death penalty cases. By law, Cheney is on board to avoid the pitfalls a ‘freshman’ would fall into.

    Also, remember the vast leeway and patience Judge Perry has allowed. Perry is one of the most respected jurists in the country. He has spoon-fed the defense and given every opportunity.

    Unless I’m totally crazy…no Florida appeal court will find defect and overturn!

    Thanks Don–That makes me feel better.Mason in my opinion is as sleazy as Baez especially after reading all the stories about how he lusts after the killer as much as Baez does. (Can’t figure why. me thinks she is ugggggly)
    BTW–What do you think of Dr Lillian Glass ? http://www.drlillianglass.com/ I love her take on everyone’s body language.

    You know Donchais, I can’t help but wonder if Baez talked Casey into this crazy case. I kept feeling her parents were trying to get her to listen to someone else and perhaps get a plea deal. That would be another reason he (Baez) didn’t want her to see her relatives. He just oozes sleaze….Ugh! What do you think?
    Oh, and thanks again for what you do. I’ve been doing exciting things, like watching my cucumbers and eggplants grow on my deck. LOL

    “I refuse to follow Baez’s questioning, line-by-line through 57 pages…my lobotomy hasn’t healed and my meds ain’t nowhere near effective enough!”

    You crack me up daily!!!!!

    Thank you for your blow by blow – I truly appreciate it and the laughs!

    I so agree with you that Baez did NOT score any points. Let’s hope the jury feels that way as well. Oddly enough, several of the talking heads on tv feel Baez scored well!! What were they watching? I was very frustrated today. It was necessary but tedious testimony.

    Donchais, did you not just want to slap Baez when he asked Mr. Bradley wasn’t he expecting to make money/recognition from this high-profile case? I had hoped he would have said……maybe, Mr. Baez, but not as much as you. He is so unlikeable. I bet in his closing he gets up and tells the jury… don’t take it out on my client if you don’t like me or other defense counsel.

    And when are we going to see anymore cross by Cheyney and Sims or do you think they holding off until the defense presents their case?

    I almost keeled over when I was flipping through the channels last night and caught Aphrodite Jones telling O’Reilly she believed Casey’s father had something to do with this. HELLO?

    Good morning, donchais!

    I passed out after posting yesterday and my head is somewhat mended. I want to point you and your readers towards this article I found this morning:


    Baez did the jury a real favor!

    “Jurors appeared to be more attentive during cross examination when things weren’t so computer coded.”

    I love how Casey has lowered her chair down so the jury cannot see her.They won’t notice that. Wonder who had that bright idea ?

  12. 06/09/2011 at 11:05 am

    Well of course she’s turned on the waterworks again.
