Casey Anthony Murder Trail: Attorney Mark Lippman Says Google Search of “Fool Proof Suffication” Evidence Clearly Vindicates George Anthony in Death of Caylee Anthony … Baez Claims Evidence not Overlooked
The bombshell news that the Google search for “fool proof suffocation” did not come into the Casey Anthony murder trial in the death of her daughter Caylee Anthony is a travesty. Really folks, a “fool proof suffocation” computer search n the day that Caylee Anthony was last ever seen and no one thought that this might not be important? Was it missed by investigators or just left out of the prosecution Even the “Ship of Fools” Casey Anthony murder trail jury was certain to convict had such evidence been presented to them, I think.
Justice for Caylee?
George Anthony’s attorney Mark Lippman claims that this evidence clearly vindicates his client of any involvement in the death of his grand daughter Caylee, as Joese Baez and the Casey Anthony Defense team had claimed. Casey Anthony’s former attorney Jose Baez opening statement at her trial alleged that George Anthony had sexually abused Casey, that Caylee had died of drowning in the family pool and that George disposed of the body.
George Anthony’s attorney says his client has been vindicated by recent reporting about computer searches on the family computer.
Attorney Mark Lippman issued this statement Monday afternoon: “Recently a book was written which made libelous statements and raised baseless speculation about who performed computer searches relating to the term ‘fool-proof suffocation.’ This weekend it was discovered that this particular search term was never brought to the attention of the State Attorney’s Office.
Full statement below from George and Cindy Anthony’s attorney Mark Lippman:
Recently a book was written which made libelous statements and raised baseless speculation about who performed computer searches relating to the term “fool-proof suffocation.” This weekend it was discovered that this particular search term was never brought to the attention of the State Attorney’s Office. Further this search was never brought out in the trial and was never discussed or disclosed to the Anthonys. However, while it is clearly more than an oversight, the trial is over and the Anthonys are continuing to move forward with their lives. The only finality that this newest information brings is that once again the evidence clearly vindicates George Anthony from any argument made by any party relating to his involvement with whatever happened to his granddaughter, Caylee Anthony.
The Anthonys continue to morn the loss of their granddaughter and ask that their continued privacy be respected.
However, former Casey Anthony defense attorney Jose Baez claimed on the Dr. Drew Show that the evidence was not overlooked.
Casey Anthony’s former attorney Jose Baez joined HLN’s Dr. Drew Monday night telling him that he mentioned these details in his new book.
“I don’t believe this evidence was missed at all,” Baez said. “I think it was clearly there … I believe it was buried as opposed to a mere oversight or overlooked as they are now claiming.”

The verdict is in for the Drew Peterson murder trial … GUILTY!!!
Finally there is Justice fair Kathleen Savio. Drew Peterson, the 58 year old former Bolling Brook police officer has been found guilty of murder by a jury of his peers. Peterson now faces up to 60 years in prison. Following the verdict Savio’s brother-in-law, Mitch Dorman stated, “Finally, finally, finally. … We finally got that murdering bastard.” I bet Peterson is not laughing this evening.
Drew Peterson, the former Illinois police officer who gained notoriety after his much-younger wife vanished in 2007, was convicted Thursday of murdering a previous wife in a case centered on secondhand hearsay statements from both women.
Peterson, 58, sat stoically looking straight ahead and did not react as the judge announced jurors had found him guilty of first-degree murder in the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. Her relatives gasped, then hugged each other as they cried quietly.
Illinois has no death penalty, and Peterson now faces a maximum 60-year prison term when sentenced Nov. 26.
Drew Peterson’s sore loser defense attorney says, “thank you for hating us”. You’re welcome.
JUSTICE FOR KATHLEEN …
A day after the defense and prosecution presented their closing arguments in the Drew Peterson murder trial, the case was given to the jury for deliberations. Former Bolingbrook police sergeant Peterson was charged with murder in the death of his third wife Kathleen Savio. The accidental drowning death of Savio in 2004 was later changed to a homicide after the disappearance and presumed death of Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacy Peterson. The prosecution alleges that the 58 year old Peterson murdered Savio and staged her death to look like an accident.
After hearing five weeks of evidence, the jury began deliberations at 10:37 a.m. ET Wednesday. Judge Edward Burmila read 15 minutes of instructions to the jurors, saying that they should start with the presumption that Peterson is innocent and only convict him if they find him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, The Associated Press reported.
“The defendant is not required to prove his innocence,” Burmila told jurors.
The jurors made several requests in the first few hours, NBCChicago.com reported. They requested Peterson’s phone records from the weekend Savio died and autopsy photos of Savio’s body. They also wanted a letter written by Savio that described her fear that Peterson would kill her, but the judge only allowed them access to a heavily-redacted version. The jurors’ request for a transcript of the testimony from Rev. Neil Schori and attorney Harry Smith was denied by the judge, and instead the transcript was read back to them by a court reporter.
Its now up to the seven-man, five-woman jury to decide Drew Peterson’s fate. The jury in the Drew Peterson murder trial deliberated for more than eight hours Wednesday before a judge sent them home for the night.
Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. Out, Florida Appeals Court Orders New Judge for Zimmerman Murder Trial of Trayvon Martin
Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr., is out …
An interesting situation just occurred in the George Zimmerman murder trial. A Florida appeals court granted Zimmerman’s attorneys request and ordered that a new judge be seated to preside over the Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Mrtin. The 5th District Court of Appeal determined that Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. could not be impartial due to past actions and statements with regards to defendant George Zimmerman. Judge Lester wrote a scathing decision with regards to Zimmerman’s second bond hearing where Lester made the prejudicial comment that Zimmerman, “manipulating the system for his own benefit.” Mark O’Mara, the defense attorney for George Zimmerman previously filed a 17 page motion disqualifying Judge Lester from this case. O’Mara asserted that the judge and court “departed from its role as an impartial, objective minister of justice” and should therefore be removed from the case. It would seem that the appeals court has agreed. Lester is out.
A Florida appeals court has granted George Zimmerman’s request for a new judge to oversee his trial for second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the Orlando Sentinel is reporting.
A three-judge panel of the 5th District Court of Appeal found that Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. cast doubt on his impartiality when he wrote in his July 5 order setting $1 million bail that Zimmerman showed “blatant disregard for the judicial system” and that he was “manipulating the system for his own benefit.”
I have to admit this decision came as a surprise, although it was the correct one. The Zimmerman-Martin case has been more political than it has been judicial since the outset. However, made this will be the sign that the murder trial will now be based on evidence and the rule of law rather than emotions, misrepresentations, media bias and those with an agenda fanning the flames of racism.

Jared Lee Loughner Pleads Guilty to 19 Charges in the Tucson, AZ Massacre and Will Likely Spend the rest of his Life in Prison
Jared Lee Loughner plead guilty to 19 charges in the Tucsan Massacre where six people were killed and 13 others wounded, including former US Rep. Gabby Giffords(AZ-D). Loughner will spend the rest of his life in prison after accepting responsibility for a deadly shooting. Prior to the plea, a judge ruled that Loughner was competent to understand charge. Loughner pleaded guilty to 19 charges, with U.S. District Judge Larry Burns dismissing 30 others. Sentencing is set for November 15. The plea deal brings an end to a tragic and senseless act of violence and spares the victims and their families having to relive the horrible events of the day so many were gunned down. The outcome was welcomed by some victims, including Giffords herself, as a way to move on.
Jared Lee Loughner agreed Tuesday to spend the rest of his life in prison, accepting that he went on a deadly shooting rampage at an Arizona political gathering and avoiding the prospect of a trial that might have brought him the death penalty.
His plea came after a federal judge found that months of psychiatric treatment made Loughner able to understand charges that he killed six people and wounded 13 others, including his intended target, then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Comment from Mark Kelly, the husband of Gabby Giffords, regarding the plea deal.
“The pain and loss caused by the events of January 8, 2011, are incalculable,” Mr. Kelly said. “Avoiding a trial will allow us—and we hope the whole Southern Arizona community—to continue with our recovery and move forward with our lives.”
It is being reported at the LA Times that Jared Lee Loughner is going to plead guilty to the shooting deaths in the Tucson massacre. Loughner is charged in the January 8, 2011 Tucson, AZ massacre where six people were killed, including 9 year old Christina Greene. Loughner also injured 13 people, including US Rep. Gabby Giffords (AZ-D) who was shot in the head and has since retired from Congress. It is suspected that mental health officials will now state that Loughner is now competent to understand the charges against him and he is expected to present his plea in federal district court Tuesday.
Jared Lee Loughner is set to plead guilty Tuesday in the shooting attack that severely wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, according to knowledgeable sources, as mental health officials believe he is now competent to understand the charges against him in the assault, which killed six people and injured 13 at a gathering with the congresswoman’s constituents in Tucson.
At the hearing Tuesday morning in U.S. District Court in Tucson, psychiatric experts who have examined Loughner, 23, are scheduled to testify that they have concluded that despite wide swings in his mental capacity, at this time he comprehends what happened and acknowledges the gravity of the charges, according to two sources who spoke on condition of anonymity because the case was still unfolding.
Judge Edward Burmila Halts Trial Abruptly After Prosecution Elicits “Low Blow” Testimony … Will Judge Grant Mistrial in the Drew Peterson Murder Trial in the Death of Kathleen Savio?
Will the murder trial of Drew Peterson in the death of Kathleen Savio be over before it has barely started? We will find out today as court was halted abruptly yesterday by Judge Burmila after the prosecution attempted to enter questionable evidence into the case that they could not prove. The Judge called it a “low blow”. Could the judge call a mistrial or will the murder case against Peterson, the former Bollingbrook police officer go forward?
After angrily upbraiding prosecutors for improperly introducing evidence, the judge presiding over the Drew Peterson murder trial abruptly halted the proceedings, sent the jury home and said he will rule Thursday on how the case will move forward.
It was the second time in as many days that the judge appeared to consider granting the defense’s request for a mistrial. Despite the seemingly made-for-TV cliffhanger, prosecutors, defense attorneys, experts and even the judge indicated that stopping now was unlikely.
Drew Peterson Murder Trail of Third Wife Kathleen Savio Begins Today in Joliet, Illinois … Opening Arguments
It’s finally here … will there be Justice for Kathleen Savio?
In 2004 Drew Peterson’s third wife Kathleen Savio was found dead in a bath tub, the death was ruled as an accidental death. It was not until the disappearance and presumed death of Drew Peterson’s fourth wife Stacy Peterson. That opened up speculation into to how Savio might have died. Her body was exhumed and it was determined that her death was actually a drowning by homicide. Drew Peterson was then arrested and charged in the murder of Kathleen Savio.
Finally, three years after he was arrested and eight years after Kathleen Savio was found dead, the murder trial begins today for Drew Peterson, the former Bolingbrook, IL police officer. Peterson’s defense attorney Joel Brodsky has stated he planned to use his opening statement to “tell the story of Drew Peterson from beginning to end … and show the state’s theory is implausible at best.” One has to wonder how the media attention starved Drew Peterson will act in court in front of the jurors and whether it will make him sympathetic or a pariah. The defense is expected to argue that Savio’s death was an accident and that there is no physical evidence placing Peterson at the scene of her death.
JUSTICE FOR KATHLEEN SAVIO
Eight and a half years after his third wife was found dead in a bathtub, the murder trial of former Chicago-area police officer Drew Peterson is set to begin in earnest with opening statements Tuesday.
The 58-year-old Peterson is accused in the 2004 death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, in a trial that has been postponed for two years. He also remains under investigation in the October 2007 disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.
A jury of seven men and five women, chosen over two days last week, will weigh Drew Peterson’s fate during a trial in Joliet, Illinois, that is expected to last about a month, according to his lawyer Joel Brodsky.
Though the trial officially began last week with the selection of a seven-man, five-woman jury, Will County Judge Edward Burmila reserved opening statements for this week. Prosecutors and defense attorneys are preparing to explain for the first time to Peterson’s jurors what they should expect to hear during the highly anticipated case.
Opening statements are expected to begin Tuesday morning after Burmila and the attorneys first address two last-minute motions by Peterson’s defense team. The contents of the motions were sealed.
