I don't know how many of you have been keeping up with the Caylee Anthony case in Orlando, but I've been addicted to it since it first hit the media
in July. There has been something that has confused me about the case since it first came out, and that was what Casey Anthony was doing with the
shovel she borrowed from the neighbor around the the 18th of June - speculated to be 2 days after it is believed she murdered Caylee.
Just in the past couple of days a video showing Dominic Casey (who was working at the time for Cindy and George Anthony - grandparents of Caylee) at
the location where Caylee's remains were ultimately found a month later. He is seen talking on his cell phone as if he is getting specific
instruction on where to look. He has changed his story now twice as to who it was he was talking to. First he claimed it was his sick daughter, now
he claims he was talking to a psychic. He has also changed his story as to why he was at the location in the first place. Initially he stated he was
there to rule it out because Kio Marie - a school friend of Casey's - had early on stated to law enforcement that the area was a teen hang-out that
her and Casey spent lots of time at when they were in school. In fact, Kio Marie went so far as to say she couldn't believe Casey would do anything
to her daughter, but if something had happened to the baby, she would think Casey would hide the body there.
So initially DC claimed he was in the area to just generally rule it out based on Kio Marie's statement. Unfortunately, the second PI, Hoover, who
is taping the search, has stated to the media and LE that DC called him and said "I know where Caylee is and she's not alive." and had him meet him
at the location 2 days in a row (November 15th and 16th).
Ultimately the video shows DC searching two locations - the location where the body was found a month later, and behind an abandoned house. The audio
of this video has not been released, but Kathi Belich - reporter for the local Orlando station WFTV - states she was allowed to hear the audio and
that at one of the two locations searched you can here DC state "it would be right here". As if whatever (the body) he was looking for was to
supposed to be right at that location. The interesting thing about BOTH locations you see DC searching in the video is that there is a pile of three
cinder blocks or pavers at both locations - as if that is the landmark he is being directed to.
My question is this for those following the most bizarre public case I've ever seen in my life:
Has anyone been able to verify if any of the pavers from the Anthonys' backyard were found at the location Caylee's body was found? We now have the
media reference that there was something heavy beneath the body (not knowing if that meant something inside the bag with the body, or if the bag was
resting on something) and we have the video of DC centering on stacks of what appears to be cinder blocks or pavers.
My question is - has there ever been confirmation that pavers similar to the Anthonys' were found near the body? (Remembering that there was
SOMETHING there that immediately warranted a search at the Anthonys' house). Because if so, this would definitely explain the use of the shovel.
All this time I have been trying to figure out what KC would do with the shovel because I can't see her burying the body in the backyard, and I
don't believe she even attempted to bury the bag once she discarded it. Not to mention she would have had to have left the Anthony house with the
shovel in order to do that and the neighbor talks about looking over toward the Anthony house after KC had borrowed the shovel and still had it, and
the vehicle was still in the garage. So she didn't leave with the shovel, or it appears she didn't.
I don't see miss-priss trudging the quarter of a mile through the dense woods between her parents' house and the spot where she dumped Caylee
carrying both the body in the bag and the shovel - that's just too much work for her little self-aggrandizing ego. I think she used the shovel to
pull up pavers. I think she used these pavers to possibly weight the bag down, but it's starting to look like she used them to mark the spot since
DC was looking for a similar block/paver set up at both locations he searched.
In addition, if she was setting the pavers in the trunk, she would have had her hands in the same location as the decomposition fluids that we know
had already made a mess. In fact, she may have taken care of two things on her trip to the Anthonys' that day. Up until that day the body may have
been laying in the trunk sans the bag, but had begun to decompose (which would make since being in a trunk in the summer in Florida) and so it is
possible she bagged the body, and then dug up the pavers. (That, or as others have speculated, the body had previously been in a single bag, and the
bag had leaked and so she had to double-bag the body. I know there were rumors that the body was double-bagged when found.) This would explain the
hits in the backyard because she would have had her dead daughter's body fluids on her hands as she worked to get the pavers in the backyard.
Everything she would have touched would have had Caylee's death scent on it.
There has been discussion that in the tour of the backyard with Greta it appeared that to the right of Caylee's playhouse there should be pavers that
weren't there. And didn't the dogs hit near the playhouse? Also, remember when George said that there was an area near the pool that appeared to
have the ground disturbed when the police were searching? It would make sense to me that there should be pavers going to the area where the ladder
would be set to get in and out of the pool to prevent grass on your feet. Were there pavers missing at the pool area?
If there is a source that confirms the pavers at the scene of Caylee's body, I'm thinking the most logical explanation for KC borrowing the shovel
was to pry/dig up the pavers.
