Bombshells in Casey Anthony Trial Continue - Page 5
Lead FBI Agent Nickolas Savage then took the stand, and stated that in reply to requests by the prosecution team, he requested photographs be send from the Orange County Medical Examiner’s Office showing the scale of both Caylee Anthony’s skull and the duct tape found with it.
FBI lab request coordinator Erin Martin was then called to the stand, and read an email from her office wherein she stated that they if any such photos existed, they were not saved by the Medical Examiner’s Office. She would “just say that Latent Print Operations Unit had no photographs.” Her email goes on to say that she did not “know why the Medical Examiner’s Office did not take any scale photographs of the tape while it was on the skull.”
Defense attorney Cheney Mason hinted that the prosecution team may have been trying to create evidence, and prosecution attorney Jeff Ashton replied that personal attacks on council were not allowed. Ashton went on to stated that they were not trying to create evidence but merely doing their duty to locate it - to explore all available information.
Judge Belvin Perry sided with Ashton, saying that the information provided by Cheney was not enough to disqualify evidence, since Cheney failed to prove prosecutorial misconduct, or an issue with any given witness.
Court was adjourned for the day, and will be back in session on Friday at 9:00 a.m. EST.
