Casey Anthony Murder Trial, NY Times Only Tells Half the Story … Software Designer Reports Error in Anthony Trial … Supressing Evidence?


A note to my fellow bloggers, when linking to stories from the New York Times, consider the source before you regurgitate as fact and if you did not follow a case in detail, you might want to defer to those who did.

The NY Times ran a story yesterday regarding the Casey Anthony murder trial and that the software designer reported an error in the trial and made the assertions that there was prosecutor misconduct. The issue at hand was how many time the word “chloroform” was searched on the Anthony’s computer, was it 84 or just once?

Assertions by the prosecution that Casey Anthony conducted extensive computer searches on the word “chloroform” were based on inaccurate data, a software designer who testified at the trial said Monday.

The designer, John Bradley, said Ms. Anthony had visited what the prosecution said was a crucial Web site only once, not 84 times, as prosecutors had asserted. He came to that conclusion after redesigning his software, and immediately alerted prosecutors and the police about the mistake, he said.

Now comes the accusation …and the NY Times stated that the State did not respond to their calls. I would caution the many that linked to this NY Times article and who did not follow the Casey Anthony murder case closely, that there are always two sides, if not three to every story and how many times has the NY Times done a one sided article against the GOP? For those of us that follow politics, crime and missing persons … we might have a different take and some inside baseball knowledge on such issues.

Mr. Bradley’s findings were not presented to the jury and the record was never corrected, he said. Prosecutors are required to reveal all information that is exculpatory to the defense.

“I gave the police everything they needed to present a new report,” Mr. Bradley said. “I did the work myself and copied out the entire database in a spreadsheet to make sure there was no issue of accessibility to the data.”

Mr. Bradley, chief executive of Siquest, a Canadian company, said he even volunteered to fly to Orlando at his own expense to show them the findings.

Cheney Mason, one of Ms. Anthony’s defense lawyers, said it was “outrageous” that prosecutors withheld critical information on the “chloroform” searches.

“The prosecution is absolutely obligated to bring forth to the court any and all evidence that could be exculpatory,” Mr. Mason said. “If in fact this is true, and the prosecution concealed this new information, it is more than shame on them. It is outrageous.”

“This was a major part of their case,” Mr. Mason added.

Now before you believe everything you read … you might want to read from those who are actually experts and have a vast amount of knowledge with this case, enter crime blogger and one of the best in the business, from our sister blog, Blink on Crime. Suppressing evidence? HOLY AMNESIA BATMAN … the Casey Anthony Defense team acts like they were never told what happened and that there was a meeting discussing the discrepancy. REALLY? That appears to be hardly the case. Before one starts believing accusations of misconduct and that any guilty verdict against Casey Anthony would have been overturned or that you think the Florida prosecutots were unethical, consider the source, research the issue yourself instead of regurgitating news from the NY Times.

After the results were mentioned in court on June 23rd, Mr. Bradley contacted the State the same day. He consulted as to a potential rebuttal to the defense regarding the error in his program and recommended using Net Analysis findings. All findings had previously been supplied to the defense in discovery.

On June 27th the discrepancy was discussed with Mr. Baez and both he & the prosecution agreed to use the Net Analysis return of 1 site visit count as the most accurate information available at the time. If additional information became available, the State agreed to disclose. Mr. Baez brought the discrepancy forward in court testimony and again at closing with his court exhibit.

During jury deliberations Mr. Bradley admitted to sending additional report information to the wrong email address but was able to deliver information to prosecutors on the evening of July 4th. On July 5th prosecutors prepared a Notice of Supplemental Discovery for defense but it was never provided because the jury had reached their verdict. Mr. Bradley never told prosecutors that the searches or the dates and times of the searches were inaccurate. The only inaccuracies discussed were the visit counts discrepancy and that each software program (CacheBack & Net Analysis) revealed a different number of total records. Again, all of this information was disclosed to the defense in a timely manner. (read the full story at BOC)

      Wonder who is pushing this story. Seems to me it’s just a way the sleazy defense is trying to rehab the baby killer so she can make money.

    2. Mary on July 20th, 2011 2:02 pm

      I am from Florida and I personally am so sick and tired of all the coverage this Baby killer is getting. She knows exactly what she did to little Caylee and we the public will never ever know the truth. She is such a pathological liar and brilliant, she even has her defense lawyers fooled and has them running after her now to protect her. It does not matter as she will never be able to hide, someone who is whacky will come after her. There is no justice for little Caylee who seems to be forgotten as this freak is getting all the attention. I hope I never ever see her again, I hope they hide her some where and forget where she is.

      Mary..#2….I agree with you completely, couldn’t have said all that better myself!!!! I think we will likely see her again in the future in some other scene where she ends up in jail, very much like the kid that killed Natalee, and O.J. They just can’t help theirselves…..they attrack crime and are mean characters!

    4. KarenO on July 20th, 2011 8:05 pm

      I’m sick of Casey Anthony. The jury confused reasonable doubt with benefit of the doubt!

    5. moi on July 21st, 2011 7:43 am

      #3 – I’ve mentioned the same before on other sites. What is sad is Casey wrote in jail she wants more children. If so they are in terrible danger and apparently little if anything can be done to protect them.

      Let’s not forget Van der Sloot. He got off from his first murder to commit the same crime again! He got caught 2nd time around, but if Casey reoffends it will mean another murdered child. Let’s hope not.

      Defense doing a good job, prosecution not so much.
      Result probably more $$ for Casey and the defense team.

      84 times or once…..doesn’t matter.

      This egomanical LIAR most definetly had SOMETHING, if not EVERYTHING to do with Caylee Anthony’s death.

      Justice is justice, and INJUSTICE IS INJUSTICE.

      God have pity as she hides her rotten ass in Columbus Ohio. Her life will never be the same, just as Joran’s Van Der Sloots will not. While I really don’t believe she will commit murder again, I think it’s disgusting to think of her living and having another child. She didn’t deserve to walk, and no other baby deserves to be subjected to this B*tch again.

      In the meantime, the Media does need to get over her—for better or worse we have to believe in our Judicial system—-and the best medicine for this effed up girl/woman and her rotten family is to permanently place them on IGNORE mode.

      Not one penny from my pocket will go to supporting anything they put out. They are considered poison right now in every industry- so good luck with that.

      Little Caylee, gone- but never forgotten. You are definetly in a better place now.

    8. moi on July 22nd, 2011 7:18 am

      NG, I hope you are correct about her not murdering again, but keep in mind she is a sociopath. How would a child she raised grow up to think and act?

    9. NGBoston on July 22nd, 2011 3:34 pm

      #8-MOI—I had no doubt Joran Van Der Sloot would murder again, and he did.

      While I agree that Anthony is a Sociopath—she is too greedy to screw up all the offers (NBC current front runner) that supposedly her Attorney is looking to negotiate for her currently.

      Still, many won’t touch her because she is considered Box Office Poison and because of all the public outrage over the verdict.

      She is most definetly UNFIT to be a Mother, ever ever again. I pity anyone involved with her—she just sucks the life out of anything good.

      I have no pity for her, or her lying Parents. They enabled her and still live solely off of any hand out they can get in the name of their deceased Grandaughter. That whole family needs a MEGA DOSE of Dr. Phil, Dr. Drew and alleviation of CO DEPENDENT EMERGENCY COURSES. The only one on his own and clearly sending a message he wants away from the brood is Brother Lee, and he is weird as hell.

      I am SO over that entire family.

      I don’t think she’s brilliant at all…in fact, the narcissistic psychopath that I once knew came from a smart family & breezed thru high school, A’s came easy, but he also was the most promiscuous person beginning at age 12, was into petty crimes within a couple years so that by the time he was in h.s. he was stealing wheels & hubcaps from car dealerships, & went on to never go to college & established a long rap sheet including many busts selling drugs for 18 years until the age of 36 (before mandatory sentencing of course), while becoming an alcoholic, & after finally getting clean & sober (court-ordered, of course), & establishing a career in the trades, he hooked up with a single mother & had a child, then managed to commit involuntary manslaughter of the woman when the child was still of tender years. Unlike Felon-CA, he had a self-preservation chip that led him to plea bargain, & after serving his time, he led a typical narcissistic psychopathic life (with passive-aggressive tendencies) & being of the explosive subtype like FCA, ran through about 6-8 roommates per year –>I kid you not! Every 2 months, he kicked his roommate out of the house & had another one waiting in the wings…all female, of course. While deluding himself that his roommates found him sexually attractive, he would spin acquaintances in other scenarios, usually of the “get rich quick” variety, & of course there were the 12-Step acquaintances who he could ‘hit on’ in a pinch – if he was hardup for attention.
      Although I don’t think he ever actually murdered anyone again, he was a violent person with an explosive temper, like FCA, & the police became aware of him in his domestic relations (to put it diplomatically), & if someone he had a relationship with had disappeared, I’m sure they’d have “liked him” for it first….however, having spent time in prison already, I’m sure that person’s body would never be found….much like I’m certain that FCA learned just how to work the system, & learned enough about forensics, that she could talk a good game, & make sure her “target” never was found even 6 mos later.
      I hope she never, ever has a child or is left alone around a child/children. She kills for spite, vindictiveness, & out of jealousy.
      I can easily see FCA being very jealous of her brother’s children & the attention they receive from her mother. She is a very dangerous person, & should never have been set free, particularly during her childbearing years. jmho’s
