Caylee Anthony Still Missing … New Witness in Casey Anthony Case


From the Nancy Grace Show, October 17, 2008 (full transcripts)

Another witness coming forward who may have spotted Casey Anthony near the woods? Was there an accomplice in this case? Could there be further indictments in the case of missing Caylee Anthony?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Breaking development in the case of missing 3- year-old Florida toddler Caylee Anthony.

PAUL KOVACH, WITNESS: White car, black bra (ph) on the front. That area right there is where she was coming out of the woods with a shovel.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Orlando station WFTV spoke to a possible eyewitness who claims he saw a woman closely resembling tot mom Casey Anthony near a wooded area with a shovel and bag in late June.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Paul Kovach says he truly believes he saw Casey Anthony`s car parked along the roadside in late June as he and a friend slowly trolled for scrap metal on the roadside.

KOVACH: I knew something was wrong then. If Jimmy would have just stopped, we`d have been all right.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Kovach says he wanted to see if the woman needed help, but his friend would only slow down as the woman walked out of the wooded area wearing a large straw hat, where a bridge of old tires is the only access to railroad tracks — very secluded railroad tracks.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The witness also says he saw a well-dressed man standing nearby, talking on a cell phone and pretending to fish.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He wasn`t dressed like he was wandering the woods?

KOVACH: No, he was well dressed.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Kovach says the woman definitely looked like Casey Anthony wearing the big straw hat, big red sunglasses, and he says she had a shovel and a bag.

KOVACH: Trying to get the bag and the shovel into the trunk, she darn near knocked her hat off her head, ran her head into the car and everything.

      And why is it this guy is just coming forward??? I certainly hope his information is good, but it seems odd to me that he’d wait this long to say something.

    2. Brenda in Virginia on October 20th, 2008 12:13 pm

      Uh, oh Casey…..

    3. Brenda in Virginia on October 20th, 2008 1:05 pm

      maybe afraid to until the murder 1 chg came out? who knows! Please realize with this being an international news story…anyone involved is going to see their life change and that may be why he waited.

    4. da_wench on October 20th, 2008 1:41 pm

      #3 – I see your point, Brenda. I just know that if it were me, I would have said something a long time ago. Of course they police may have known about this guy for sometime and the media is just now finding out. We never really know.

      Btw, it’s nice that we’re at least on the same side of the fence in this case (as opposed to our political views). Just so you know, I’m not a bleeding heart. I’m one of those oddball Dems that is all for the death penalty.

    5. Chassidy on October 20th, 2008 3:45 pm

      I believe that he came forward to police quite awhile back from what I have read, but the info is just now becoming public. i think he actually called it in more than once too.

    6. Susan on October 20th, 2008 6:20 pm

      But of course there’s accomplices…Cindy Anthony, George Anthony, and Lee Anthony. They all know what happened to Caylee and have tried their damnedest to cover for Casey. The Anthony’s, like the van der Sluts, have obstructed JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE!!

      Line ‘em up, haul ‘em off, lock ‘em up!!


    7. Brenda from Virginia on October 20th, 2008 6:55 pm

      My guess is Lee would be only one who may have helped Casey on this. In the first set of documents released, there was a conversation between Casey and Lee where Casey mentioned to him not to worry because nothing would come out.

      I’ve been thinking paternity stuff, but maybe not! Maybe it has to do with this witness?

      That conversation between Casey and Lee seems to have vanished from the Internet. I’m not speaking of the phone conversation where everything was kinda in code between the two. In the 1st jailhouse visit, they did not realize the statements they were making were public record. In the 2nd conversation by phone, both alluded to the fact had they realized this during the first conversation it would have been approached with more care and many things not mentioned at all.

      If anyone can find the jailhouse face/to/face conversation , please post a link. I am positive that statement from Casey exists.

    8. ANewGirl on October 20th, 2008 8:41 pm

      Notice the big, white Paris Hilton sunglasses in the still of the first video? Apparently, Ms. Anthony has a pair in red to match. What a fashion statement with that big, straw hat too.

      Even without the body of her poor 3-yr. old daughter ever being recovered….it would appear as if Casey Anthony is going to prison for life.
      Couldn’t have happened to a nicer person, right?

      CaSeY AnThOnY —— ROT ROT ROT!!! Have a nice life in isolation….remember though—when they put you in the general population,,,,,a few of those nice “butches” are going to own your a** (literally!) YOU DESERVE ALL THE MISERY THAT AWAITS YOU!

      ***Justice for Caylee *****

    9. Richard on October 20th, 2008 9:11 pm

      Yet another point of horrible parallel with Aruba … I’m thinking of that person who reported seeing four (I think it was four) kids with a shovel, or perhaps more than one shovel….

    10. txchic on October 20th, 2008 10:02 pm

      i was thinking about the a$$ who came forth as a witness & allowed dave holloway to spend days at that god forsaken garbage dump in aruba digging.

      i question the motive of any witness who comes forth so late in the investigation.

      time will tell if the leads are true. tes will find her if caylee is there.

    11. Jill from Western Australia on October 21st, 2008 4:01 am

      Simpering Cry Baby CASEY…YOU KILLED YOUR BEAUTIFUL LITTLE CAYLEE…I have NO sympathy for CINDY nor LEE…concerned for George….hope you are in Jail SOON {you would make the perfect wife #5 for Drew Peterson!!!!}

    12. Brenda from Virginia on October 21st, 2008 5:14 am

      Yes dawench, this case is one that will grab the hearts of anyone regardless of politics, religion, or if they have children or not.

      As for the politics…you are right, we best not go there. I believe is “you make your own way”…not “let’s take away from someone who has and give to someone who has proven they cannot.”

    13. Melting on October 21st, 2008 8:02 am

      Sounds fishy to me….no pun intended.

    14. on October 21st, 2008 8:31 am

      If the guy just came forward, it does sound fishy. But IF he has had previous contact with authorities, it may be just another attempt to let Casey know she’s caught and get her to give up where Caylee is buried. I do think they have the area right.

    15. Sharon Chicago on October 21st, 2008 10:48 am

      I am thinking about that straw hat. She likes to wear baseball caps….Lives in Fla. the sun is
      very hot….

      So how far in did she take Caylee to bury her?

      With adrenelin pumping she could have walked a
      mile into the woods and dug a grave. That’s why
      the hat she knew she had to dig the grave and it would take time to do that. She would also have to carry Caylee a mile. Would she bury her under a tree, land mark?

      I think Caylee will be found when the search team goes back out to search that field again.

    16. Just Bearly on October 21st, 2008 12:32 pm

      Any straw hats show up on the Target reciepts? or maybe CSI recovered one from her personal items that could match up.

    17. Sharon Chicago on October 21st, 2008 3:11 pm

      The guy who was dressed really well and was fishing… what role could he have played?

      Was he the look-out man? naw…I would think if
      he went as far as to be part of this cover up
      he would not have tried to disguise himself as
      a fisherman…he would have helped her dispose of Caylee.

      Also, Casey is disposing of her daughters body
      during the day time hours so she would not be
      fearful to go out there when it was pitch black
      out at night. She is sloppy with all of her plans and things she does in life…risk taker, thrill seeker…so she only grabs a straw hat
      and red glasses as a desguise.

      Casey stories are strange…about checking computer for women of the night services or escort services… Could she have owed someone
      lots of money and was trying to work off her debt and that is why she had no cash flow?

    18. BeckyB on October 21st, 2008 4:36 pm

      I DO want to believe this witness BUT I have some concerns. How did he see all of this without stopping? Where is “Jimmy” in all of this? It may be more effective to bring the driver into the picture. Yes, the straw hat..has anyone else seen it? Sure, I want to think he saw Casey because we all know she killed her baby and we all want her to be found. I would also like to know if there is any way to prove that he contacted the tip line previously.

    19. TM on October 21st, 2008 9:05 pm

      No 22 year old is going to wear one of those straw hats. I live in Florida, I have 3 children in that age group. No way, never.

      This guy is most likely concerned and sincere, in my opinion, but this sighting has nothing to do with Casey or Caylee. She would have disposed of the body at a time and place where she was not seen by others.

      I heard from someone that lives in that area, that people go to those tracks to fill up on (that is, steal) the landscaping rocks/pebbles that line the railroad tracks. That actually makes sense, doesn’t it?

    20. BeckyB on October 22nd, 2008 5:10 am

      Yea, but he also works at a Manheim Auto, so they could have been searching for scrap metal?? I would like to know if that straw hat has been found. I know what you’re saying about that age group.

    21. Sharon Chicago on October 22nd, 2008 7:47 am

      BeckyB good question…wondering if the police found the straw hat in Casey’s car or with her other belongings?

      I do feel that a 22 year old would wear a large
      straw hat…to disguise herself/protect her from the blazing sun as she dug a grave for her daughter.

    24. felicia on October 28th, 2008 5:13 pm

      I glanced at the cover of a magazine this afternoon in rouse’s and on it was a story about tot’s mom being charged with murder, and the girl’s body in a grave…. what is the real deal? i googled it and u cant find anything on that….

    25. paul bridgman on October 28th, 2008 5:33 pm

      casey anthony was in or near salt springs on the twenty fifth of june around ten oclock am.back tracking or getting footage of her going out there is of exstream importance to this case.if you know how to get traffic footage from previouse dates your help is needed.submit your findings to the fbi in ocala fla

    26. Debby on October 28th, 2008 8:26 pm

      did this guy report the sighting to police or the media, and did either of them go look where the guy pointed to? Cuz if that was me i would of said, show me where lets go right now, so far I havent heard anything about anyone searching the area he said.

    27. sarah teague on October 29th, 2008 4:36 pm

      I want someone to look closely at the video of Caylee. Her hair is gone on both sides. One other person on another blog noticed this also. If Caylee’s hair has been pulled out on purpose or if she pulled it out herself, those are signs of abuse and extreme nervousness. Yes, she wore ponytails, but someone please look and tell me what you think.
      I believe Tim Miller and his crew will bring Caylee home. Let’s hold hands and hearts across the miles believing in this miracle. Matthew 10:26
      Remember my Heather in your prayers. Evidence was found after ten years and the KSP still won’t search a property we need searching. Pray for them.

    28. xbarbfox on October 30th, 2008 2:11 pm

      actually i think cindy does know something as well after finding the colthes and wash the clothes from the truck…so cindy and casey spoke about and cindys trying to cover up whatever casey did to there granddaughter so she doesnt loose casey too. george on the other hand has no clue whats going on. hes been truthful thru the whole time. i think cindy and casey were both using george as well. as for her brother lee he had something to do with it hes not going down without a fight and that casey doesnt wanna tell on her poor innocent brother which helped the day he was out in the woods with her. can anyone really prove where lee was that DAY? does he have an alibi or did the cops overlook that too? i pray casey will be brought home safe. i wanna help the search team but im in pennsylvania cant afford to participate and i know the help. and if i found the baby dead or alive i would have paid for all the expenses of caylees funeral in her honor set up a shelter for homeless runaway kids in pennsylvania and florida with that reward money………without CASEY included in the servies. may she rot in hell.

    29. Jackie on November 25th, 2008 9:59 am

      I have three kids myself and I cannot understand WHY Cindy cannot get the truth from Casey. I know that I could get one of my kids to tell me where she is and tell me the truth. These two must not have had such a good relationship after all
