How Does The State’s Decisions On Seeking The Death Penalty Fit Into The Sexual Abuse Allegations Timeline?

I wanted to follow-up on my previous article with information about when the State of Florida prosecutors both dropped the Death Penalty charges & later decided to reinstitute the Death Penalty charges and how these decisions fit into the abuse allegations timeline. The following is the evidence of those decisions & what I have concluded.

December 5 2008: State Not Seeking The Death Penalty

In a release about the decision, the State Attorney’s Office wrote:

“This afternoon, after consideration of the law and unique facts applicable to the above case, the State filed its notice that it is not in the best interest of the people of the State of Florida to pursue the death penalty as a potential sentence. Therefore, the State of Florida will not be seeking the death penalty against defendant Casey Anthony.”

If something were to change, for instance if Caylee’s body were to be found before the case goes to trial, prosecutors could change their minds and decide to go for the death penalty.

December 12 2008: Caylee’s remains are finally located via Roy Kronk’s information
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jim Solomons said that a utility worker found the body at 9:32 a.m. EST Thursday in a wooded area less than a half-mile from the house Caylee lived in with her grandparents and mother.

December 16 2008: Lee Anthony’s DNA comparison to Caylee Anthony’s DNA report is recieved proving he is not Caylee Anthony’s Biological father.

See pg 60 of the following document for date this report was recieved. Page 61 describes that DNA was collected, what date, & who from. Page 62 relays the information of Lee not a match for Caylee’s DNA.

December 19 2008: Remains Confirmed To Be Caylee Anthony

Medical Examiner Dr. Jan Garavaglia said,

“With regret, I am here to inform you that the skeletal remains found on Dec. 11 are those of the missing toddler Caylee Anthony.”

April 13 2009: Fla. Seeks Death for Casey Anthony Prosecution reverses earlier decision after remains found

http://www.newser.com/story/56095/fla-seeks-death-for-casey-anthony.html

Prosecutors knew within days of Caylee’s remains being found that her DNA would not prove the sexual abuse allegations. Four months later they reversed their previous decision and decided to seek the Death Penalty at trial.

Did Casey Tell The Sexual Abuse Story To Authorities In 2008?

Throughout the Caylee Anthony Missing Child case & the Casey Anthony Murder case people have often stated they believe that if Casey had told authorities the drowning &/or sex abuse story that the State of Florida would not have sought a murder charge or the death penalty. I believe I have found evidence to prove that Casey did in fact relay this version of events to authorities in October of 2008.

October 13 2008: Casey Indicted by Grand Jury

Once at the OCSO Department Casey tells officers that she and her attorney, Jose Baez, are willing to have a sit-down meeting with authorities to discuss the facts of the case. This sit-down meeting is not recorded but the minutes preceding it are recorded by Nifter Media on You tube. Videos 1-7  (videos 4,5, & 6 are of Casey sitting in the room alone)

(video 1)

In video 7 at 5:30 the video picks back up after the unrecorded meeting. A male voice off camera asks Casey “Why did you wait so many years to tell about it?” The officers on camera become visibly annoyed and ignore the question as does Casey. Both men turn away from the questioner and the officer on the left chatters about the handcuffs to change the subject.

*****Edited to included correct video

October 20 2008:

The rest of the Anthony family has DNA collected. A FBI investigator orders Lee’s sample to be typed against Caylee’s sample to determine paternity. The return FBI report documents when the samples were taken, which test they were used for, and the results of those tests. The DNA paternity test is negative for Lee Anthony being Caylee’s biological father. Keep in mind that this testing is requested after the unrecorded meeting & within 6 days of that meeting.

This, I propose, is proof positive that Casey relayed the sexual abuse story to authorities on October 13 2008.It is my estimation that they required Casey to offer proof of these allegations. Her answer was the potential forCaylee to be Lee’s child via incestual rape. While it is now known that Lee is not Caylee’s father it neither provesnor disproves the incest allegations.

While it appears that the authorities did entertain the idea & investigated her claims they did not change their position on the charges. If  prosecutors did temporarily change their position they later reverted back to theMurder I charges & sought the Death Penalty. I believe this is due to Caylee’s  DNA not matching for Lee Anthony. This would have been proof positive of her claims.

Outside of the DNA matching, the only other evidence that could be given to support these claims would be aneye-witness testimony from a person known to Casey long-term.

These allegations have yet to be proven.
