Casey Anthony 2013Not surprisingly, the Casey Anthony saga has not come to pass. Casey Anthony is back in the headlines after 3 years since Orange County Florida miserably failed to prove she murdered her beautiful, well-loved 2 ½  year old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony.

After the shocking verdict in July 2011 and after spending 3 years in solitary confinement awaiting trial, she solemnly attempted to regain her life as a free citizen.  True, she was acquitted of 1st degree murder but was found guilty of lying to law enforcement.  For that she was sentenced to four years in prison with credit for time served but she would have to spend another year of probation under the guidance of Orange County Corrections stemming from a 2010 check fraud conviction.  With all criminal debts paid, Casey Anthony then filed for bankruptcy.

Subsequent to the acquittal, Anthony was bombarded with several bogus lawsuits. On July 7, 2011, only 2 days after she was acquitted, Tim Miller owner of a non-profit organization Texas Equusearch posed a question to the public.  Should he or should he not file a lawsuit against Casey Anthony or her attorney Jose Baez? The public roared “yes!”

He claims he spent over $100,000 searching for Casey’s daughter Caylee. He’s claiming this because he says Casey Anthony or her attorney Jose Baez asked for his help.
Where are the records of this phone call? Where is the documentation, a letter, an email?

I’ve searched the documents released and haven’t found one correspondence between Casey Anthony and Tim Miller.

The only words Tim Miller ever said was that when he was leaving the Anthony home, Casey said to him, “Well thanks for being here, I know she’s alive out there somewhere… So please bring her back” so he says.

Of course, at the peak of this missing child investigation, while on the Nancy Grace Show, Miller was more than happy to repeat her response to solidify what the general public already wanted to believe, Casey Anthony didn’t care about Caylee.

Thanks to the Sunshine Laws and Orlando local media, it’s public knowledge that it was Casey’s mother Cindy Anthony who called Tim Miller, asking for his help. And she wanted Tim Miller to look for a live missing Caylee, not a body.

Apparently Tim Miller paid no attention to Cindy nor to Casey’s farewell to him because he in all of his searches for Caylee, he never searched for a live missing child. He only searched for a body, a body which he ironically failed to find that was only 14 or so houses from the Anthony home.  At that juncture, his only lost was a 4-wheel ATV which he damaged while searching the exact area where Roy Kronk would officially find her body on December 11, 2008.

The irony is rich

quote Judge Stan Strickland.

So why did Tim Miller and his attorney Marc Wites sue Casey Anthony and how did he win his case?

This may be the answer.  According to The Huffington Post…

“Bankruptcy trustee Stephen Meininger wanted her creditors to benefit from her story, but Anthony’s lawyers objected, raising constitutional and other issues.”

Tim Miller and his attorney Marc Wites settled the suit. Under the settlement, Anthony will not object to Texas EquuSearch being named as a $75,000 creditor in her bankruptcy case, and Texas EquuSearch will not object to Anthony’s bankruptcy petition for discharge. But it doesn’t end there for Casey.

Standing behind Tim Miller in line for a piece of the “Imaginary Casey Anthony Pie” is motel maid Zenaida Gonzalez and the suspicious finder of Caylee’s remains, meter-reader Roy Kronk.

Casey Anthony Fights Back

Earlier this month, Anthony’s lawyers filed 2 motions asking a Federal judge to throw out both defamation suits. Her new lawyers say that the lawsuits are “spurious” and fail to establish “willful and malicious” acts which are the only way they are lawful.

Anthony’s lawyers went on to say…

“This travesty has gone on long enough,” Ms. Anthony implores the Court to end this matter so she can begin the fresh start she is promised by the law.”

Certainly Casey Anthony deserves a fresh start both legally and morally. Her new lawyers are fighting vehemently to get her there.  No doubt, her most valuable asset is the rights to her life story.

As I recall in the earliest days of this strange disappearance of a child, Casey admonished the press for their harsh coverage of her case. In one of Casey’s truthful moments she swore when this was over that she’d never give them a press conference. She told the truth.

The Hinky Meter is No More!

When I first heard this I was shocked, no way would Valhail delete her site but its true, http://www.thehinkymeter.com is up for sale according to GoDaddy.com.
Valhail, a one time member of Websleuths went on her own to open her own site, “The Hinky Meter”. Her thoughts and articles were read by thousands, myself included. In Blogdom, she was respected by most during the Casey Anthony case. She offered her readers hundreds of document links and had a couple of other authors who wrote articles as well, adding more insight and perspective.
It’s not a secret that I happened to have an opposing viewpoint as to what happened to Casey Anthony’s daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony. I never felt whole heartedly that Casey was a cold hearted murderer. The Anthony case was totally, without a doubt the most convoluted mystery the world has ever seen.
The story itself was cut and dried. Because of that, it seemed impossible to me. Nothing is THAT perfect. Nothing in THAT story made me think that it was real. It was so unreal, there had to be more so no, I never believed it for a minute.
In any case, Valhail, owner of The Hinky Meter had done a superb job of listing document links and photographs involved with the case. She even had her own in house court reporter to rehash all of the details of the trial, on the daily basis. Her readers were totally dedicated to her. She could not have asked for a better following.
The Hinky Meter articles were factually written and occasionally written by people who were somewhat experts on the subject.

Not only did Valhail report on the Anthony case, she was on top of several other child kidnappings, disappearances, murders and abuse. She was truly an advocate for children and for that I respected her because I know it’s not easy to write about the horrible atrocities that happen to children. It’s draining and it eats at your soul which make me wonder if that was the reason she pulled her blog.

For whatever reason Valhail pulled up stakes, I have a feeling it isn’t the last time we’ll hear from her. Maybe she just needs a break for awhile. Life goes on behind the blog but I know it’s in her heart to write so I’ll certainly keep an eye out for her.
She’ll be back.

Good Luck Val, wherever you are.

In this all-access pass, Baez reveals never-before-disclosed defense secrets and his experiences throughout the entire case—discovering evidence, his first Casey Anthony meeting, George and Cindy Anthony’s day after day behavior, leading defense strategy meetings and his weeks in closed door judge’s chambers.

Often described as a tenacious, “Bull-Dog attorney” Jose Baez has announced the soon to be released book “Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story” telling of his experiences while represeenting Casey Anthony.
Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story” is set to hit bookshelves this July, almost a year to the date she was found not guilty of murdering her 2 ½ year old daughter Caylee.

Jose Baez told People magazine he will reveal in the 352-page book how he came to be Casey’s lawyer and will give a behind-the-scenes look at their defense strategy along with graphic crime scene photographs introduced into evidence.

http://www.radaronline.com/photos/image/131794/2011/06/photos-casey-anthony-trial-evidence

Baez emphatically adds “Casey will not financially benefit from this book in any way or form.” “This is my story, not hers.”

In February Baez officially resigned from being on Casey’s legal team and he says the reason why will be in his new book.

Jose Baez avers..

“I was there from day one.
Other than Casey, no one else was there from the beginning.”
These are my insights into what happened”.

Although Casey will not be profiting at all from the book, Jose claims she gave him the go ahead on releasing it. Casey has authorized me to write it he told People magazine and went on to say “I have my complete and total permission.”

~~~

Hopefully “Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story” will bring objectivity and insight into this highly controversial and unusual case.

For those who have asked themselves how could the media and so many people have been so wrong, perhaps this book will answer that question and more importantly understand why the jury got it right.

I predict Mr. Baez’s book to be in opposition to much of what ex-prosecutor Jeff Ashton released in his supposedly tell-all book released in November 2011, a mere 4 months after her acquittal.

~~~

Since Jose Baez has talked to People magazine, it’s been announced, he’ll soon visit “Dr. Drew” Pinsky’s show at 9 p.m. Monday, May 14th.on HLN. Be sure to tune in.

TheJBMission~

That’s what her new attorney Charles Greene is predicting. Agreed, I do see the writing on the wall. Morgan & Morgan have the Really Big Show scheduled for early January 2013, that’s if we all don’t perish on December 21, 2012.
It’s a good thing that Judge Munyon didn’t schedule the trial a couple of weeks earlier or Casey would be blamed for that too.
I’ve been sitting back waiting for the next viable Anthony story. We’ve seen the Oh-So-Intriguing Casey Anthony video introducing her new dog, Smooch. We’ve been through the media fanfare of how the video was released and the mystery of who released it and most recently the latest announcement that Casey Anthony will soon be baptized all awhile she hides out from the hog wild investigators of Morgan & Morgan law firm.

So I’ll bite.
This thread is open for more Casey Anthony drama as I’ll do what I can to keep us posted on updates. Stay tuned for the exciting prelude to “Casey Anthony Part 2!”

THE PLAYERS

Meet Zenaida Gonzalez, the plaintiff

Before she heard of Casey

After she heard of Casey

That’s Zenaida Gonzalez without the middle name Fernandez. She’s the plaintiff suing Casey Anthony for defamation of character because in Casey’s first police report she stated that on June 16, 2008 she left Caylee at Sawgrass Apts. in the hands of a person named Zenaida Fernandez Gonzalez. It just so happened that the plaintiff Zenaida Gonzalez visited Sawgrass Apartments on June 17, 2008, the day after. Due to over zealous investigators quick to make unfounded accusations released to the media the woman’s name and personal information as a potential suspect. No one would have seen a picture of the plaintiff had the investigators not jumped to conclusions.

~~~

Meet Keith Miknik, attorney for Gonzalez

Keith Miknik

He says “She has been sucked into it. She’s the one police came to and questioned

her about kidnapping and murder, for goodness sake”

~~~

Meet John Morgan, attorney for Gonzalez

John Morgan

A highly recognizable attorney of south-central Florida. Highways are cluttered with billboards along with his picture and advertisements as a personal injury lawyer. His motto “For the People”, especially people who can earn him money, fame, fortune and the national attention he plans to gain by representing Zenaida Gonzalez v. Casey Anthony in a defamation lawsuit.

Meet Matt Morgan, attorney for Gonzalez

Matt Morgan

Son of John Morgan of Morgan & Morgan law firm. As a courtesy to the Orlando Sentinel, Matt Morgan provided a picture of Zenaida Gonzalez’s new look.

Meet John Dill, attorney for Gonzalez

John Dill

He says “We’ll track her down. Again, she’s not in Nevada, Bob. We’re going to find her if we need to, and we will.”

As of March 24, 2012, Mr. Dill has not found the elusive Casey Anthony.

Note* Finding Casey Anthony is quite a conundrum for Zenaida Gonzalez’s attorneys. Without their star defendant, the “Really Big Show” might not be so big. Bill Sheaffer, legal analysts for WFTV says “If she’s served and that subpoena is a valid service of process, then she is required to be at this trial.”  Anthony’s attorney disagrees. He says that in any civil lawsuit, the defendant is not required by law to attend trial. Nonetheless the search goes on. “Where is Casey?”

Meet Casey Anthony, the defendant

Before being charged with murder of her daughter Caylee

After being acquitted of all charges associated with her daughter's death

Since July 5, 2011, the day Casey Anthony was acquitted of all charges involving with the death of her daughter, she has been bombarded with several civil lawsuits. She has since been forced to live in hiding due to death threats towards her and her attorneys.

~~~

Meet Charles Greene, attorney for Casey Anthony

Charles Greene

He says “This case is so expensive for Orange County because people are already lining up for tickets for Casey Anthony 2′ as the trial is now being billed” in an interview with Bill Sheaffer, legal analyst.  He goes on to say, “Casey’s notoriety is being hijacked for the civil court case brought by Gonzalez.”

Mr. Greene’s area of law and expertise is in criminal defense, civil litigation, trial practice and products liability. He is currently representing Casey Anthony in the upcoming civil trial Gonzalez v. Anthony.

 ~~~

Without a doubt, by the end of the year Morgan and Morgan will have pulled every publicity stunt and unexpected press conference known to man. 

Rest assured by Christmas 2012, we will be hyped and ready for

Casey Anthony Part 2!

Cristian Fernandez

On March 14, 2011, while most of us were discussing pre-trial motions in the murder trial of Caylee Marie Anthony, a 2 ½ year old child David died a violent death by the hands of his 12 year old halfbrother.

His name is Cristian Fernandez, and he is the youngest person to be charged with murder as an adult in Jacksonville’s history.

The medical examiner ruled 2 ½ year old David’s death a homicide, caused by blunt-force trauma. The boy’s mother Biannela Susana was not at home at the time of the incident. Police said while David was laying on his bed unconscious, his brother Cristian called his mother, who then came home.

Susana, 25, is charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child and felony child abuse.
She’s being held in jail on a $1 million dollar bond and faces up to 30 years if convicted.

This case has sparked international outrage. More than 170,000 people have signed an online petition urging the prosecutor to try the boy as a juvenile yet prosecutor Angela Corey disagrees, claiming she has compassion for Cristian yet she has to follow Florida law.

According to the 2009 Bureau of Justice Statistics, the home state of “DisneyLand” has sent more juveniles into the adult prison population than any other state. Better think twice before bringing the kiddies to Florida this summer for vacation.

For the record, the state of Florida has sent 393 juveniles into adult population. Following are the state of Connecticut with 332, North Carolina with 213, New York with 157 and Texas with 156. If I do the math, this means that Florida sends more than twice as many kids into our adult prison system than the other states of the nation. That’s impressive in a negative sort of way.

Cristian Fernandez has lived the most heart wrenching life imaginable.
Cristian, born to a 12 year old mother, grandson to a full fledged drug addicted grandmother, endured the wrath on an abusive step-father who during the investigation and his upcoming arrest for abusing his stepson Cristian, put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger in front of his children. Cristian the oldest of his mother’s 3 children, had sadly witnessed the entire ordeal.

Psychological reports say Cristian has shown violent behavior dating back from the age of 3, including killing a kitten for scratching him on the face. The report noted details of public indecency, an incident in which he simulated a sex act on a male twice his age and the sexual assault of his surviving half brother.
Prosecutors contend that Fernandez repeatedly slammed 2 year old David Galarraga’s head on a book shelf to kill him.

The psychological report shows Fernandez’s perception of the death from Dr. Meadow’s interview.

“He said that he picked up his younger brother and pushed him into the bookcase. He said that his brother was bleeding and unresponsive so he carried him to the bed and called his mother.

“Cristian denied any plans or intent to kill his brother. He seemed rather defensive about discussing what triggered his anger. He talked about having a flashback of the abuse by his stepfather as the motive for this offense.”

The stepfather he is referring to is Luis Galarraga who shot himself to death in front of Fernandez’s younger sibling in October of 2010, as the Hialeah police were coming to arrest him for abusing Cristian.

Five months after the suicide, the family moved to Jacksonville. Court papers say Cristian had enrolled at Kernan Middle School. He was a straight-A sixth-grade student at the time of his arrest.

State Attorney Angela Corey and Assistant State Attorney Mark Caliel filed the papers to combat a written request Public Defender Matt Shirk had made to asking to allow Fernandez to await trial at a juvenile facility. Cristian had spent three weeks, 23 hours a day in isolation at the Duval County jail. Due to the psychological report, he was allowed to wait at the juvenile facility.

In writing his report, Dr. William Meadows, forensic psychologist also took into account past abuse where Fernandez had been a victim. In a standardized test it labeled him a high risk for future violence.

It’s what happened after Cristian called his mother is where this case becomes questionable. Who’s really to blame for David’s death?

Biannela Susana

A doctor at St. Luke’s told a police officer that had the toddler been treated sooner, he may have survived.
When Biannela Susana arrived home and saw her 2 year old unconscious on the bed, instead of calling for help or bring the child directly to the hospital, she decided to check the internet. Her laptop commuter shows she searched “when some (sic) gets knocked out” at 10:54am. At 2:15pm, “when your unconscious for hours”. At 2:38 pm, “concussions on chldren.” She also checked her Wachovia bank account before getting help for the 2 ½ year old toddler David.
Cristian Fernandez’s public defenders argue all of the blame belongs to Cristian’s mother not her 12 year old son. It was also reported that David sustained a broken leg months earlier while under the care of Cristian which should have been a warning to his mother that Cristian was not capable of babysitting.

While I see the indications that Cristian may be on the road to serial killing, I also believe he is a perfect candidate for psychiatric treatment instead of spending the rest of his life in prison. In a secure psychiatric facility, under daily treatment and guidance of trained professional psychologists for 10 or so years, he could possibly become the young man God intended him to be.

Another benefit for mental help as opposed to prison is if society commits Cristian to a mental hospital, it’s a fact that in a mental insanity commitment, there is no day of release. He can only be released when he is cured and fit to be a member of society.

As an example, John Hinckley Jr. who was found mentally insane for his assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan. As of 2010, John Hinckley had spent 28 years incarcerated; he’s now 54 years old. Hinckley was finally being prepared to leave St. Elizabeth’s Psychiatric Hospital, by allowing him 12 weeks a year of unsupervised visitation with his mother at her home in Virginia.
Considering the crime itself, arbitrarily he could never be deemed fit for release except for the fact that he comes from a very wealthy family. Society could be very harsh.

The same could be for Cristian Fernandez. What better specimen could the mental professionals ask for than a child turned murderer, who was severely abused, physically, sexually and emotionally, acted out his hatred on his younger 2 year old brother?

Cristian Fernandez is a treasure trove of mental information. The amount of knowledge to be garnered from young Cristian is priceless. What could be learned from young Cristian, in a way would make David’s death not in vain and at the same time to help society.

How will we ever know if mental help works if we never use it?

Job Well Done!

It is official, from the Orange County clerks office, Register of Actions, with his name crossed out, Jose Baez is no longer Casey Anthony’s attorney. The most notorious defense attorney in the country has moved on to the sandier beaches of Miami, Florida.

Baez’s withdrawal statement to the Miami Herald snipped;

…. it’s time to move on: “My work as Ms. Anthony’s defense attorney is finished. It’s not my job to answer questions regarding non-legal matters relating to Ms. Anthony, and I must attend to my other clients’ needs.”

It’s unclear why but the rumors are rampantly surfacing. Some claim it’s because of Casey Anthony’s recently released video diary, others say it’s a falling out due to Baez’s inability to land Casey a million dollar television deal. I think it has more to do with the simple fact that Jose Baez’s job is done.

On July 5, 2011, Jose Baez accomplished the unlikely task of garnering an unlikely acquittal for his client, 22 year old Casey Anthony, charged with murdering her beautiful 2 ½ year old daughter Caylee Marie.

Caylee Marie

At trial, in Casey Anthony’s opening statement, Mr. Baez immediately informed the jury that Caylee was not murdered but had died in an accidental drowning which I’m sure this knowledge played a huge part in Baez’s fight to save her mother’s life.

Defending a woman accused of killing her child must have been quite a conundrum for family man Jose Baez but it was a job that had to be done because as he stated in a post-verdict interview with Geraldo Rivera, to allow Caylee’s mother to possibly die for her death would be a gross injustice to Caylee.

After three years of unmitigated public mockery and ridicule, he has earned the privilege to walk away with his head held high. What more could a client want but to be acquitted of first degree murder with the possibility of a death sentence? Lawyers have quit on clients for various reasons but in this case, his moving on to continue his career is a fair and reasonable decision.

Truth Be Known

Tenacious and hard working defense attorneys are hard to find.

And who can forget his humble statement at the press conference, immediately after Casey Anthony’s acquittal.

A humble man indeed.

According to the Miami Herald, Mr. Baez has landed a job with a top notch Miami law firm. Not long ago, he was literally fighting for his client; being pushed and shoved by the media, having his personal life plastered on the internet and in Orlando newspapers.

He endured insults not only from the uneducated public but by a few paid legal analysts who underestimated his abilities and arrogantly scrutinized and questioned his work. Meanwhile, at no point did Jose Baez step outside of himself or stoop to their level. He was always a gentleman.

Jose Baez was recently asked to speak at a three session seminar called “Fantasy of Forensics, How Junk Science Failed to Persuade the Jury in the Casey Anthony Case”.

There, many of Jose Baez’s peers paid fees to hear him speak, contrary to his Orange County Courthouse adversary, ex-prosecutor Jeff Ashton who has set up a Pay Pal account on a social website, asking for donations from the angry public in hopes of winning a local election.

Giordano leaving Aruba

Since his sudden retirement after losing the Anthony case, Jeff Ashton has had two clients, his children whereas in comparison, Mr. Baez was consulted in another high profile case, the disappearance of Robyn Gardner, 35, who has been missing from Aruba since Aug. 2. The man she was vacationing with, Gary Giordano, 50, was detained there for five weeks but not charged with any crime. Jose said he was passionate to help Gary Giordana and was notably appalled by the use of cadaver dogs being sent in from Holland to search for Robyn Gardner two months after the woman went missing.

It seems Mr. Baez enjoys a challenge. He’s also representing Charlie Ely in her appeal. Ely, 18 years old at the time of her offense, was sentenced to life in prison for her part in the brutal murder of 15 year old Seath Jackson. Whether she is guilty or not, Baez is sworn to oath to do the best of his ability.

To judge an attorney by the cases he takes on is unfair. It’s the job of the defense attorney to choose where his services are needed. Instead, we should judge attorneys on the passion and persistence that he/she utilizes in order to defend their clients.

“The Ethics of Justice: Why Criminal Defense Lawyers Defend the Guilty”

Quote:

So regardless of whether a criminal lawyer’s client is guilty of the crime he or she is being tried for or wrongly accused, the defense attorney’s job doesn’t change: make the prosecution prove its case with sound arguments, real evidence, and reliable testimony. In a sense, the real client of a defense attorney isn’t truly the defendant at all but the integrity of democracy and the justice system.
Without good defense attorneys, there wouldn’t be anyone to protect the innocent when they are falsely accused. One innocent person is prison is far too many.

Oath of Admission to The Florida Bar

“I do solemnly swear:

“I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Florida;

“I will maintain the respect due to courts of justice and judicial officers;

“I will not counsel or maintain any suit or proceedings which shall appear to me to be unjust, nor any defense except such as I believe to be honestly debatable under the law of the land;

“I will employ for the purpose of maintaining the causes confided to me such means only as are consistent with truth and honor, and will never seek to mislead the judge or jury by any artifice or false statement of fact or law;

“I will maintain the confidence and preserve inviolate the secrets of my clients, and will accept no compensation in connection with their business except from them or with their knowledge and approval;

“To opposing parties and their counsel, I pledge fairness, integrity, and civility, not only in court, but also in all written and oral communications;

“I will abstain from all offensive personality and advance no fact prejudicial to the honor or reputation of a party or witness, unless required by the justice of the cause with which I am charged;

“I will never reject, from any consideration personal to myself, the cause of the defenseless or oppressed, or delay anyone’s cause for lucre or malice. So help me God.”

Considering Mr. Baez’s rough start, first as a high school drop-out who enlisted into the military, to later attaining his GED, and then use his GI bill to go to college/law school is a remarkable feat. He is a wonderful role model for all young people proving that nothing is impossible, that hard work does lead to success. His tough work ethics were obvious in his tenacious efforts to show reasonable doubt in the Anthony case, albeit against exhausting odds. His family should be very proud.

Wikipedia explains more…

Baez was born in Manhattan, New York City.[3] Baez dropped out of Homestead High School in the ninth grade, got married and became a father at the age of 17. After he earned his GED diploma, he joined the U.S. Navy in 1986. According to his resume, he spent three years at the NATO base in Norfolk, Virginia, trained as an intelligence analyst, describing it as “Cosmic Top Secret” security clearance.[2][4]

On his return to civilian life, Baez attended Miami-Dade Community College and later transferred to Florida State University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. In 1997, Baez earned his Juris Doctor degree from St. Thomas University School of Law, and after graduation, he submitted his application to practice law to the Florida Bar. In April 1998, the Florida Board of Bar Examiners denied him a license to practice law based on evidence of “financial irresponsibility.”[2][5]

Baez started working as paralegal for Miami-Dade County public defender and taught internet research to lawyers. He also started four online business ventures, including two selling bikinis and two which sold computer know-how. In September 1990, Baez declared bankruptcy in Virginia where he resided. In 1995, the Virginia Education Loan Authority filed liens against Baez for $4,336 in unpaid loans.[2] Baez also worked for Lexis Nexis.[5] According to media reports, his financial situation deteriorated in the recent years, with his home, purchased for over $670,000 in 2007, foreclosed and appraised at $272,900.[5] Demonstrating he had rehabilitated himself, the Florida Bar finally granted him a license to practice law on September 22, 2005

Onward, forward to more speaking engagements, Mr. Baez is invited to keynote a seminar “Justice Must Be Won” for the ACDLA, the Alabama Criminal Defense Lawyers Association which will be held June 14-16, 2012 at the Pensacola Beach Hilton.

Sounds fun and likely to be a success, nothing is nicer than the white beaches of Pensacola.

“The Irony is Rich”

One of the most frequently used quotes stemming from the Casey Anthony trial came from Judge Stan Strickland when he was asked to recuse himself as presiding judge of the Casey Anthony murder trial. This statement rings true in many ways.

GOOD LUCK MR. BAEZ!

Job well done!

~~~

To Jose Baez:

We’ll miss your commentary regarding the Anthony case here at theJBMission. “Ironically” your initials were the same as my belated mother. She was another strong believer in truth, justice and the Constitutional Rights of the United States of America. My self-imposed mission was to look at the Anthony case as she would.

Truth, there wasn’t any solid evidence that said Casey Anthony murdered her daughter.

Thanks to you, Justice prevailed and our 6th Amendment Constitutional Right to a fair trial are still intact.

Thank you!

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence

July 7, 2011, 2 days after Casey Anthony was acquitted, Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch put the word out to the public. Should he or should he not file a lawsuit against Casey Anthony or her attorney Jose Baez? He claims he spent over $100,000 searching for Casey’s 2 ½ year old daughter, Caylee Marie. Perhaps he’s claiming this because Casey Anthony or Jose Baez asked for his help.
Where are the records of this phone call? Where is the documentation, a letter, an email? I’ve searched the documents released and haven’t found one correspondence between Casey Anthony and Tim Miller.
Did Jose Baez contact him? He hasn’t mentioned a call or an email on this matter. The only thing that Jose Baez asked Tim Miller was for access to TES records to see which searchers searched where.

This information was very important to Jose Baez because the remains of the victim were found in an area where Tim Miller searched.  Even if it wasn’t the exact location, her remains were in very close proximity to where his searchers had looked but Tim Miller quickly lawyered up and those records remained sealed for over a year and are partially sealed today. Baez was only allowed to view the records. For whatever reason, we, the public may never know just how close Tim and his searchers were to Area A, the location where Caylee’s remains were officially found on December 11, 2008.

Tim Miller, founder of a non-profit organization Texas EquuSearch was deterred by high water while searching this area of Suburban Drive as he searched in early August of 2008, a week or so later, he left Orlando after losing a 4 wheeler while attempting to search the Wooded Area which is 14 houses away from the suspect. He didn’t return until August 30th when he set up base at a local Holiday Inn.

Thanks to the Sunshine Laws and Orlando local media, it’s public knowledge that it was Casey’s mother Cindy Anthony who called Tim Miller, asking for his help. And she wanted Tim Miller to look for a live missing Caylee, not a deceased toddler. Apparently Tim Miller paid no attention to Cindy nor to Casey’s farewell to him because he in all of his searches for Caylee, never searched for a live missing child.

After the shocking verdict was read on July 5, 2011, while on CNN, Tim Miller addressed the public.  He was seeking public approval because he knew the staunch opinators would not be pleased with anyone who profitted off of Caylee Anthony’s death.  So he took it to a vote.  Should he sue Casey Anthony?

On July 12, 2011, Only days before her release from jail, Casey Anthony got the news. Tim Miller had filed a civil lawsuit against her for $112,000, the cost for his search team. Tim Miller claims it was Casey’s lies that cost him this money.
He claims that when he was leaving the Anthony home, Casey said to him, “Well thanks for being here, I know she’s alive out there somewhere… So please bring her back.”
This was the typical mantra for Casey at the time and more importantly, those words did not change Tim Miller’s type of search. When he came back a couple of weeks later, he continued searching for a body and not a live child. That’s why he took on board, 4,000 searchers, to search for remains.

During this time frame there was Tropical Storm Fay threatening Florida, entering the Gulf of Mexico.
During seven days in Florida, August 18–24, 2008, eleven people died and thousands of homes plus roads were damaged, from 60 mph (97 km/h) winds and rain waters up to 5 feet (1.5 m) deep,
August 19, TS Fay was in EVERGLADES CITY, Florida.

The Civil Lawsuit

Tim Miller refuses to cooperate with Casey Anthony. On December 20, 2011 well after making his decision, he IS suing Casey Anthony, yet he doesn’t show up in Orlando for his deposition because he whined, “Casey didn’t answer his questions.”
Casey Anthony’s attorney had this to say about Tim Miller.

“From my perspective, if you’re suing, who should have to answer questions first?” Anthony attorney Charles Greene asked WKMG-Channel 6. “The defendant or the person claiming they have some sort of legitimate case?”

The above mentioned matter has been recently resolved and Judge Munyon has decided Casey will answer two questions from a list of 15.

• Admit that you did not observe or hear George Anthony call 911 at any time to report that he or you had discovered that Caylee Marie Anthony had drowned in the swimming poll at your parents’ house on or about June 16, 2008.
• Admit that you were aware in September 2008 and October 2008 that EquuSearch was conducting searches for your daughter, Caylee.

Subsequently, Casey Anthony has denied both statements. Hopefully this will compel Tim Miller to follow through with his promise and answer questions posed to him by Anthony’s attorney Charles Greene.

As for $112,000, remember, Texas Equusearch acted as an agent of the State or Florida during the course of its business in Florida, receiving payment, equipment, support, and directions from Florida law enforcement agencies. There was also a time when Tim Miller was being considered as a material witness for the defense.

TES TIMELINE

On August 5, 2008, a Fox News crew filmed a search of The Wooded Area. The video shows no body or suspicious objects, and cameramen reported no suspicious odor.
On the Record with Greta Van Susteren (FOX News television broadcast Dec. 17, 2008)
available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gNJdZrgg. This video can no longer be found.

On August 11th, 12th and 13th,2008, Orange County law enforcement responded to calls from Roy Kronk, a county employee who claimed to have seen a suspicious bag in the Wooded Area. An Orange County Deputy Sheriff searched the spot and found nothing suspicious.

On August 18, 2008, an Orange County Deputy Sheriff responded to a call from one Keith Williams, who claimed to have found possible evidence in the Wooded Area. No body or remains were found.

On August 30, 2008, Texas EquuSearch (“TES”), a Texas 501© (3) corporation, arrived in Orlando from its headquarters in Dickinson, TX, to search for the missing child. TES set up its base of operations at the Holiday Inn at 5750 T.G. Blvd, Orlando,FL. Personnel from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division (“CID”) were present at the command center.

On August 31, 2008, TES and OCSO began their search for the missing child Caylee Marie Anthony. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office Critical Incident Management Team (“CIMT”) evaluated the organization of the TES search effort and supplied the searchers with bottled water. Id. Cmdr Matthew Irwin, Sgt John Allen, and Det. Cpl. Yuri Melich represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 1, 2008, TES and law enforcement continued their search of “areas of interest” provided by OCSO. Id at 3. Sgt. Allen and Det. Melich represent CID. Id at 7.

On September 2, 2008, TES and law enforcement continued their search. CIMT set up a tent at TES’s command center. Id at 3. Cmdr. Irwin, Sgt. Allen, and Det. Melich represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 3, 2008, then-Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary provided TES with $5,000 of OCSO funds. See Appendix F. TES and law enforcement continued their search. See Appendix E at 3. Cmdr. Irwin, Sgt. Allen, and Det. Melich represented CID. Id at 7. Also on this date, Miss Anthony was released from custody following her August 29 arrest on economic charges.

On September 4, 2008, TES and law enforcement continued their search. Cmdr. Irwin, Sgt. Allen, Det. Melich, and Tanya DePalmo represented CID; a large team of CIMT and Agriculture personnel also participated in the joint search. Id at 7.

On September 5, 2008, TES and OCSO personnel continued their search. Id at3. Sgt. Allen and Det. Yurich represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 6, 2008, TES and OCSO personnel continued their search. Id at 3. Chief Ron Stucker, Det. Melich, and Investigator Kari Roderick represented CID. Id at 7.

On September 7, 2008, TES and OCSO continued their search. In the afternoon, investigative crime writer David Lohr posted to his website that he had searched The Wooded Area with TES, writing that “they [TES} were in the process of completing a thorough sweep of the area. “See Appendix G. That evening, TES called off their search for Caylee Marie Anthony. Amy L. Edwards, Heat, Bugs Don’t Deter Caylee Anthony Search Volunteers, Orlando Sentinel, Sept. 8, 2008, available at
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/com/community/news/wintergarden/orl-caylee0808sep08,0,311925.story. No remains were found.

In October of 2008, a former TES team leader informed Orange County Sergeant John Allen that, while searching with TES in September, she had searched the area where Caylee Anthony’s remains were ultimately found. See Appendix B at 2:25.

On October 14, 2008, Miss Anthony was indicted in the present case and taken into custody.

On November 8, 2008, TES began a new search. Orange County law Enforcement loaned TES a helicopter to use in the search. Updates from Search for Caylee Marie, WESH-2 Orlando, available at http://www.wesh.com/news/17929243/detail.html  TES searchers did not find Caylee Anthony.

On November 15, 2008, one Dominic Casey, a private investigator under contract to Miss Anthony’s parents, George and Cynthia Anthony, conducted a search of the Wooded Area accompanied by James Hoover, another private investigator. See Appendix H at 12.

On December 2, TES opened an Orlando chapter of Texas EquuSearch. Texas EquuSearch Opens Orlando Branch, CF News-13, available at http://www.chnews13.com/News/Local/2008/12/2equusearch_opens_orlando_branch.html

On December 11, 2008, law enforcement responded to a call from Roy Kronk stating that he had discovered a human skull at the edge of the Wooded Area, just off of Suburban Drive.  When law enforcement arrived on the scene, they found the skeletonized remains of a small child at the edge of the Wooded Area, just off of Suburban Drive. The State has since identified the remains as those of the child Caylee Marie Anthony.

~~~

MY PERSONAL NOTE:

I don’t dislike Tim Miller. I think his initial intentions were honorable but instead of him being mad at himself for not finding Caylee, I’d rather know that he’s pondering this and realizing that maybe, just maybe, her remains were not in that area when he searched. As for the money, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy if he’d only say it….

“maybe the child Caylee Anthony wasn’t in The Wooded Area when I searched”

~~~
And then I’d say “Pay The Man!

“TLC special “Dr G, Inside the Caylee Anthony Case”

My first thought, Dr G paints the perfect picture for her perfect little murder as long as she robotically tells the State’s story.
In Dr G’s TLC special, I was sickened listening to the State’s entire theory for what seems like the 100th time. Starting with the 911 call, seeing the pictures of Casey in the iconic blue dress, and a other provocative pictures, followed by adorable pictures of innocent little Caylee swimming in the pool; smiling for the camera and then in Dr G’s own voice, reciting that incriminating accusatory mantra “her little body thrown in the woods like trash” a highly derogatory statement that would naturally enrage anyone who has a heart.

While listening to the State scenario all over again, I honestly understand why so many felt such strong hatred for Casey Anthony. I’m just shocked that a professional medical examiner would stoop to pulling at heart strings. I just assumed any medical examiner or licensed pathologist with a medical degree who’s being paid would not simply offer her personal opinion and surely wouldn’t solely rely on circumstances to proffer that opinion.

Usually in a legal case, the medical examiner performs an autopsy to report the manner of death and more importantly in cases of first degree murder, offer a cause of death.
However Dr Garavaglia was unable to determine cause of death.

Dr Garavaglia’s Conclusion?

Snipped:

Conclusion/Opinion: As often is the case with a skeletonized individual, the exact cause of death cannot be determined with certainty. The manner of death is based on available information, including circumstances.

CAUSE OF DEATH?  Homicide by undetermined means

Dr G, not only was unable to report the exact cause of death, she based the manner of death on available information, ie,(pictures of Casey dancing, knowledge that Casey’s failed to report Caylee missing and speculation that Caylee was drugged and suffocated)
From this she based the manner of death, homicide and with this, the State of Florida wanted permission to kill Casey Anthony.

The Duct Tape?

On pg 6442, Dr G says,
“The duct tape was clearly placed prior to decomposition, keeping the mandible in place.”

Referring to Pg 6445

The canvas bag is 24″ long and has a ring at the top with a diameter of 16 ½ inches. This tells me it’s likely that the duct tape was used to seal the top of the canvas bag. The body of a 3yo toddler would be a tight fit in a bag this small. The bag didn’t have a drawstring to close the top. Instead of claiming the duct tape was clearly over the mandible, it’s clearer to me that it was stuck to the top of the head and hair. Or perhaps, gravity was the reason the mandible was held in place.

During the middle of her special, Dr G boldly asserts that all of the teeth were still attached to the mandible, yet on pg 6447-6448 she reports the mandible still has nine lower teeth attached with four teeth still present in the maxilla.
Quote:
“All the teeth that were lost during decomposition were subsequently found at the crime scene, except for one incisor.”

A professional medical examiner should only rely on what can be proven before stating something as fact.  Additionally, using the term “clearly” is subjective.  Clearly to who?

In the TLC Special, Dr G was astounded by the tiny rootlets that had intermingled with the bones. Was she referring to new roots and not roots from 3 or 4 months before?
Why were these rootlets so tiny as she described?

She also noted she saw no trauma although she did look, which should affirm there were no violent acts however she follows this statement with, “just because you don’t find anything, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.”

Is this really a statement from a professional County Medical Examiner? Perhaps Dr G just didn’t want to find anything else. Especially anything else that would indicate an accident such as accidental drowning with over-the-top cover-up. Remember she did not test for diatoms either.

Considering how this television special is a Johnny Come Lately in the grand scheme of Casey Anthony specials, I’m taken aback by her constant assertion, “thrown in the woods like trash“. What is the intent of such a statement and why now? And why is State Attorney Jeff Ashton and WFTV’s legal analyst Bill Sheaffer included in her TV Special on her network, TLC? Is this a last ditch effort, ie. gift to them, as her colleagues and friends? Needless to say, after watching this show, I find myself with more questions than answers.
She uses the term “thrown in the woods like trash” yet complains it was a like a media circus. Wasn’t that what she and her colleagues planned in order to get a conviction? Make the public hate her, leak all of the sorrid details, flash pictures of her as a slut, demean her in any way possible? A feasible plan when there isn’t any viable solid evidence to pin first degree murder on the accused so attacking her character might have worked. Unfortunately for the State Attorney’s Office, the jurors weren’t impressed.

Unpredictably I found Dr G emotionally shaken during most of her show, almost angry. Maybe Dr. Spitz was the sole reason for the Dr G Special Show. Perhaps calling Dr. G’s autopsy of Caylee Anthony “shoddy” brings out her emotional side?

From my perspective, I was unimpressed and if Dr G ever decides to change professions, I think showbiz suits her just fine.  Oh that’s right, she is in showbiz.

Another frivolous lawsuit hot on the Anthony gravy train.

Today WFTV.com reported that Roy Kronk is now filing a defamation suit against Casey Anthony. His attorney Howard Marks claims that Anthony and/or those representing her suggested he might have been involved in Caylee Anthony’s death and hid her body.

Snipped:

Ex-meter reader who found Caylee’s remains suing Casey
ORLANDO, Fla. —
Former Orange County meter reader Roy Kronk is suing Casey Anthony.
Kronk, the man who found the remains of two-year-old Caylee Anthony, has filed a defamation claim against Anthony, according to his attorney Howard Marks.
Kronk’s suit contends that statements made by Anthony, or those representing her, suggesting that Kronk might have taken Anthony’s young daughter, killed and hidden her body are defamatory. Marks said Anthony’s statements that Caylee drowned means she was trying to deflect the blame to others.
Anthony is the only defendant named in the lawsuit.
Anthony is also being sued in civil court by Zenaida Gonzalez and by Texas EquuSearch

Although I agree that Kronk has a legitimate case against the National Enquirer, I think this latest filing is about as valid as those weapons he supposedly found in Kingsport, Tennessee in 1997.
Doesn’t Kronk’s attorney Howard Marks know the reason for an opening statement? Perhaps the definition would ease Mr. Kronk’s mind because an opening statement doesn’t have to be proven or believed. It just has to be possible. I understand his frustration but whether he likes it or not, the finder of the dead body of any missing person much less a child is always a person of interest. It goes with territory of being the hero. Like it or lump it. Just as no one believes Zenaida Gonzalez had anything to do with Caylee’s death, no one believes Roy Kronk did either. Fear not Roy Kronk. Word on the web is Casey got away with murder. Okaaaaayyy..

Opening Statement:
A contest for the imagination of the jury. Get into their world.

It’s a pity Mr. Kronk couldn’t keep his story straight from the beginning. It’s also a pity that OCSO failed to follow through on his reports in mid-August of 2008. I’m positive had the right thing happened then, no one would have raised an eyebrow but being that he was at the crime scene no less than 3 different times before December 11, 2008, I wouldn’t be surprised if his own attorney had his suspicions.

It matters not that the local media had already tried, convicted and sentenced Casey Anthony to death when his call on the morning of December 11th to law enforcement was finally answered, he should never have assumed her attorneys wouldn’t use any of his inconsistencies against him.

From the sound of Roy Kronk’s arrogance in his recorded interviews with law enforcement, he seems to perceive himself as a smart guy therefore he should know that this IS the name of the game for any good defense attorney who is trying to save the life of their client.
Roy Kronk was a gift to the defense team, not that it was his fault but certainly the circumstances of the finding of Caylee Anthony goes beyond the norm. Needless to say, Casey Anthony’s attorney Alan Greene will have a field day with deposing Roy Kronk.
I understand Kronk’s frustration with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office but this isn’t the way to make it right or make a living or as he vehemently claims in one of his interviews, “everybody has to eat“.

~~~

Luckily, I copied this report from ClickOrlando.com in June 2011 because the link is no longer working so here it is again just to keep it alive and kicking. I hate to see the facts of this case disappear. There were far too many hinky tidbits in this case.

Tidbit #3

Eleven years ago, in a 1997 report from Kingsport, Tennessee, Kronk called in a tip to investigators that they would find several stolen guns and other items in a wooded field but when officers searched the field they were unable to find any of the items Kronk had reported.
Incidentally, Jill Kerley lived only 2 hours from Kingsport, Tennessee. After reading this report, I think this validates Jill Kerley’s fear that Kronk was still intending to cause her harm. Jill Kerley told Jose Baez she had no idea that he was that close to her in 1997.
Considering this story is eerily similar to what Kronk did in Orlando, Florida, I can see where the Defense team or anyone would raise an eyebrow.

The banalities of life are juxtaposed against
wildly alive scenarios that play in our minds.

So I say to Roy Kronk,

good luck and better luck with the National Enquirer.

One, two, three…Three civil lawsuits have been filed against Casey Anthony!
• Zenaida Gonzalez
• Tim Miller
• Leonard Padilla

Casey Anthony lawsuits are like first husbands, you always have to throw the first one out. This is how I feel about Zenaida Gonzalez’s pending lawsuit. Considering Judge Lisa Munyon seems to be a no-non-sense judge, I think Morgan & Morgan are going to have to pull some fat furry rabbits out of their hats in order to get a 15K settlement off of Casey Anthony. The M&M’s are going to have to prove damages caused by Casey.
The World Awaits, unlike like the judges before her, Judge Munyon is not likely to automatically rule against Anthony in order to gain popularity.

Here Comes Tim Miller

On July 6, 2011, one day after Casey Anthony was acquitted, Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch appeared on CNN asking for the opinion of the public as to whether or not to file a lawsuit against Casey Anthony and/or Jose Baez for the return of $100,000 he says he spent searching for Caylee Anthony.
He cites Jose Baez’s opening statement, claiming Caylee was never missing as just cause and that Casey Anthony and Jose Baez should reimburse him for money spent and time wasted. Tim Miller has no proof as to when Casey Anthony admitted to Jose Baez that Caylee died in an accidental drowning nor will he ever know since this is client/attorney privilege.

Apparently the opinions of the disgruntled masses said yes. Tim Miller served Casey Anthony while she was still in jail even though FOX 26 legal analyst Chris Tritico thinks that because TES is a volunteer organization that they will not have a right to ask for their money back since they work for free.

I say, if Texas Equuasearch were an incorporated profiting business and Casey had paid him 100K to find her daughter, dead or alive, he should reimburse her because Roy Kronk did the job that Tim Miller couldn’t, even with 4200 searchers, 32 of them at the “hot spot” as he called it. Roy Kronk obviously didn’t need a 4 wheeler either.

Incidentally, Roy Kronk is suing Leonard Padilla for 15K in a civil suit. Apparently Leonard Padilla let his mouth run a bit too much on the Nancy Grace Show and tweeted some not so nice tweets on Twitter. Personally, I’d prefer for him to sue Nancy Grace since she profited from Leonard Padilla appearances, therefore giving him a platform to spew his speculation and mild mistruths about Roy Kronk.

Padilla, whose website lists him as “World Famous Bounty Hunter & Godfather of Bail,” had this to say to Roy Kronk.

“Truth is a defense to any defamation suit filed,” Padilla said in a brief phone call this afternoon. “In my experience and knowledge of Roy Kronk, he’s a [expletive] liar. I will give them time to add that into their lawsuit.”

Padilla, obviously looking for a free trip to Orlando during the lingering national media blitz post acquittal, is said to have asked Kronk and his attorney to pay for his and his attorney’s round-trip airfare to Orlando so he could be served with the legal paperwork directly.
Perhaps theJBMission should meet in Orlando to attend the trial.

On September 1, 2011, Howard Marks representing his client Roy Kronk filed a lawsuit against the National Enquirer for $15million.

Orange County, Fla., meter reader Roy Kronk, who found the remains of two-year-old homicide victim Caylee Anthony, is suing the tabloid and its parent company, American Media, for defamation, due to a story that that the paper reported about Kronk in a Dec. 7, 2009 report.

Maybe he’ll send us the airfare after he wins this one.
In all fairness, Roy Kronk, unlike Padilla did not directly insert himself into this alleged murder. Although he did admit in one of his several interviews with law enforcement that he was interested in finding Caylee Anthony by telling his co-workers, paraphrasing, “I bet she’s in those woods”, what came after was not his fault and the National Enquirer should not have ran this story titled, “Casey Anthony Says Meter Reader Killed Caylee”. I’d like to see how the National Enquirer proves this statement.

Here Comes Leonard Padilla


Snipped:
Now Padilla is suing Anthony and her attorney, Jose Baez, for the cost of those services. The suit asks for about 200-thousand dollars. Padilla claims Anthony and Baez accepted his help looking for Caylee, even when they knew the child was dead.

“We feel that we were conned,” Padilla told FOX40 on Monday.

“(Baez) mislead us, obviously, because in his opening statement at the trial, he said that the child had never been missing, which obviously concludes that he and Casey knew what had happened to the child, and where the child was dead, and buried.”

I say, Leonard Padilla was never asked by anyone to help in the Anthony case. He directly inserted himself in to the Anthony case as he enjoyed the media fanfare and did he really think that a murder suspect was going to be honest with him? He’s a bail bondsman, he should be used to being lied to. Again, what and when Baez learned of what happened to Caylee will never be revealed to him, client/attorney privilege.

In addition, if in a court of law, jurors are asked not to consider an opening statement as truth so why would the same court rule in favor of litigious media pigs who are using it as grounds for a lawsuit? Isn’t an opening statement for a defense lawyer simply a scenario in order to raise reasonable doubt? These opening statements are not arguable as they would be argued and proved during the trials. This is because an effective opening statement establishes the facts of the case and sets forth a legal theory and explanation for why the attorney’s client should prevail which is exactly what the opening statement was in the Anthony case, a theory.

As the rest of the world sits back in repugnance, litigious media pigs are still trying to make a pay day off of the death of an innocent child.  Enough already!
