Apparently Leonard Padilla’s main concerns over revoking Casey Anthony’s bond had to do with safety and security issues and says that as long as Jose Baez can clear those up he won’t revoke the bond.
Texas EquuSearch is ramping up to start searching for Caylee over the weekend using searchers on horseback, planes, dogs, divers and even a remote controlled plane that can shoot pictures over wooded ares and bodies of water. They are working with the cooperation of the Orange County Sheriff’s department and hopefully will be able to turn something up over the weekend.
According to the Orlando Sentinel’s story Jose Baez has been in touch with the state attorney’s office (and he is the one that approached them) since JULY 25th. Prosecutor Linda Burdick emailed him back on the 29th saying that she hadn’t heard from him about what information Anthony could provide. They discussed it on August 12th and on the 25th they sent another email to Baez letting him know that the immunity would expire on the 28th. Since then of course the immunity has been extended until Tuesday.
The limited immunity would only be for the statements that Casey Anthony made to the law, it would not include any other evidence which WOULD be admissible in court. They offered the immunity in hopes that they could find the child while she was still alive but as the tests keep coming back in and show that Caylee is probably dead it seems pretty slim. The immunity deal is off the table as of Tuesday.
Updated 5:30PM Her bond has been/is in the process of being revoked and the Padillas will return her to the jail on Saturday. I don’t know why the grandstanding and waiting until Saturday unless that is the first day that Al Estes, the bail bondsman in Tampa that bailed her out can’t make it there until then.
Updated 12:29PM According to WESH news reporter Bob Kealing the Orange County Sheriff’s department definitely has the DNA results and is planning a meeting at 3PM after which a statement to the press is possible.
They are also reporting that the immunity offer is on the table until Tuesday although if anymore evidence comes in (such as Caylee’s body) that could change.
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Eyewitness News was informed Thursday morning by bounty hunter Leonard Padilla that he’s beginning the process of having Casey Anthony’s $500,000 bond revoked after details emerged that suggest missing 3-year-old Caylee Anthony is dead. Padilla said he’s working to determine the process and hopes to begin it Thursday afternoon or Friday.
The article linked to above says that Leonard Padilla is starting the process to revoke Casey Anthony’s bond. Actually it is Tony Padilla that is or will have to revoke her bond since he’s the bondsman.
I figured it would be but a matter of time before they did this. Hopefully they will get her locked back up before she either runs or kills herself.
I did a little bit of reading on the forensics possibly used in the case and apparently the tests on the hair can show whether they were already dead or not because hair roots show bacteria that has infected the root after someone has died. Also, when someone dies fluid is leaked out of their mouth and nose that can be used to identify DNA.
The Sheriff’s office isn’t commenting on any of the forensics obviously to maintain the integrity of the case. The 400 pages of documents that were released earlier in the week were related to the cases already filed against Anthony. Anything specifically pertaining to new cases does not have to be released until after charges have been filed.
