Investigator: Decomposing Body That Of Caylee Anthony – Orlando News Story – WESH Orlando

Investigator: Decomposing Body That Of Caylee Anthony – Orlando News Story – WESH Orlando

DIRECT QUOTE FROM ARTICLE:

ORLANDO, Fla. — For the first time on the record on Sunday, Orange County investigators acknowledged that recent FBI lab tests confirmed that Caylee Anthony’s body was in her mother’s trunk and that the child is dead.

Evidence from a Central Florida body farm showed that an odor emitted from Casey Anthony’s car’s trunk was human decomposition.

A lead investigator in the case told WESH 2’s Bob Kealing that lab results indicated Caylee’s dead body was in the trunk of that car. Sources also confirmed that a stain in the trunk was not what clinched the decision that Caylee was in the trunk, but it was the strands of hair that investigators suspected all along were Caylee’s.

I’m giving you a quote from this WESH.com (Channel 2 in Orlando) story:

ORLANDO, Fla. — For the first time on the record on Sunday, Orange County investigators acknowledged that recent FBI lab tests confirmed that Caylee Anthony’s body was in her mother’s trunk and that the child is dead.

Evidence from a Central Florida body farm showed that an odor emitted from Casey Anthony’s car’s trunk was human decomposition.

Sources also confirmed that a stain in the trunk was not what clinched the decision that Caylee was in the trunk, but it was the strands of hair that investigators suspected all along were

Investigators had not, until Sunday, disclosed that the decomposing body was, in fact, Caylee.

“The information we’ve gotten back from the lab that she was in the trunk of that car and that she is dead is certainly something we take seriously,” said Orange County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. John Allen.

 

Sorry, folks, but that’s all I can do at this time.

If you have the time to read the WESH article, note grandmother Cindy Anthony’s reaction.

Another American tragedy involving a child.

And a family is torn apart.

I’m blogging about this a lot on my other blog, b.burcroff, but wanted to post here also.

My prayers are with anyone in the path of Gustav.

As of right this minute, the intensity forecast has Gustav at a Category 3, but it may be strengthening.

Republicans are right on target with this, by scaling back the convention and making no final decisions until the storm hits and we know Gustav’s impact.

Here’s a direct quote from McCain:

“We must redirect our efforts from the really celebratory event of the nomination of president and vice president of our party to acting as all Americans.”

 

My aging shell

I’m feeling blessed these days.

Really.

But like everyone, life still has its challenges.

I’m 59 years old, and inside, I’m still a young woman.

I still have hopes and dreams, wonder what I’ll be when I grow up, and hope Santa Claus is good to me this year (joke on that last one).

But my body is feeling a bit sore and bruised these days, and I’m learning that I need to take care of myself differently than I used to.

I can’t go ‘Mach 1’ day and night anymore; my energy takes some pretty serious dips every night and definitely by the weekend.

I’ve lost some weight in the last year, but I still need to lose more.

I will probably will be going on blood pressure medication very soon.

I’m takings vitamins, eating better, and getting some exercise, but I’m a bit bummed about getting older.

Aging is inevitable, for all of us, and intellectually I can accept, even welcome, my inclusion into the older folks club.

But my heart feels a bit heavy some days, as I remember the days when my bones didn’t ache, when I took my body’s strength for granted, and I didn’t think about getting old.

Sigh.

So I’m trying to be good to my body, get lots of rest, exercise, and eat right.

End of pity party, because I am a lucky and blessed person.

I plan to work until I drop, stay mentally active, and take care of myself.

And yes, I’m happy I can stay home and relax for two days before heading back to work. As I watch CNN, I’m praying for the safety of anyone having to evacuate their homes and lives right now.

TTFN.

Long weekend–random thoughts and thanks

Dang, it’s cold in Seattle this morning, but expected to warm up nicely.

It’s day 2 of a long weekend, and I’m warm and snug in my rocker recliner, listening to CNN and drinking coffee.

And I’m giving thanks this morning, because I can sit sround and relax after a hard week of work. I’m not in the process of evacuating my home and my city. As I write this, I’m listening to Ray Nagin give an update regarding the evacuation of New Orleans. Nagin is warning potential looters they will go directly to prison.

I’ve heard reports that some New Orleans citizens are taking along school records and other important papers with them as they leave, and won’t return to their homes if the storm is really bad again.

I spent yesterday taking care of my grandchildren so my son could get out for a few hours; my daughter-in-law Kim is at Telluride for the film festival, then she’s going to the Toronto film fest. I made the mistake of saying to my grandchildren that I am so happy that they will be in Seattle for Christmas this year, and how much I missed them last year.

How many days until Christmas? They all asked.

After we figured out that Christmas is in a few months, there was a flurry of paper, pens, and excitement as N, J, and V started their Christmas lists.

When I informed my son what three of his children were up to, his reaction was, let’s say, lukewarm. Your typical parental reaction to the economic realities of buying Christmas gifts.

That’s when I went home.

So my friends, take care today, and please take time out to be thankful.

I’m going to read today (Eclipse), watch The Winds of War thanks to Netflix, and check out all of your blogs.

TTFN.

I watched mayor Ray Nagin lay it on the line with New Orleans citizens.

Nagin called Gustav “the storm of the century.”

Good gracious, I hope he is wrong.

My prayers to all in the path of Gustav.
