Caylee Anthony Is Dead

with 2 comments

On Friday forensic DNA tests released indicate that Caylee Anthony is dead. God rest that poor wee baby’s soul.

“The hair found in the trunk establishes that Caylee’s dead and that her dead body was in the trunk of the car. Even if they don’t find the body, it’s enough evidence, scientific evidence, to establish that she’s dead,” said Dr. Michael Baden, nationally-renowned forensic pathologist.

DNA testing done on that piece of hair and compared with a sample provided by Casey confirmed that neither Casey nor Caylee can be “excluded as the source of the hair,” because the “mtDNA sequences … are the same.”

Tests also confirmed “residues of chloroform” within a spare tire cover found inside the trunk of Casey’s car. “Residues consistent with chloroform” were also found within the left and right side trunk liner. The report says no other chemicals were detected within those items. Coupled with evidence that someone on Casey’s computer was researching how to make chloroform, it could explain how Caylee was murdered.

“That would indicate that chloroform has to be considered as a cause of the baby’s death,” Dr. Baden said.

  1. If the mother or the daughter cannot be excluded by the hair sample, how do we know it’s Caylee’s and therefore form the conclusion she is dead? A strand of hair is not indicative of death and it could have gotten there any number of ways. These are extremely irresponsible statements.
