Duct tape. This is another favorite “murder weapon” of the clueless masses, as they once again try and fool themselves into thinking Casey used duct tape to murder Caylee – along with the chloroform of course.
The myths go something like this:
“Caylee had duct tape wrapped around her skull… over her mouth… and over her nose when they found her. That explains everything. Casey used the duct tape to suffocate & murder her after she’d knocked her out with chloroform. There’s no other explanation!”
Now… unlike the chloroform, there’s no disputing the duct tape was real, and it actually existed – but it wasn’t “used” for the purpose most people think.
The prosecution – aided & abetted as usual by the media – tried to make you (and the jury) believe that chloroform was a very dear friend & ally of duct tape throughout the trial. In fact they fit together so well, the prosecution would have you believe they’d never been apart!
This proved to be yet another crumbling piece of the ever-fragile & desperate prosecution case.
It was total BS from the start… just like the very odd pixelated pictures of Caylee’s skull – the very same skull that magically changed color within a very short space of time — remember that?
It’s time to get off the old duct tape bandwagon.
Listen up folks:
- There was NO duct tape “wrapped around Caylee’s skull”.
- There was NO duct tape “over Caylee’s mouth”.
- There was NO duct tape “over Caylee’s nose”.
There was however, a grotesque & macabre animated movie that the no-expense-spared prosecution produced and presented. This showed a picture of Caylee & Casey happy together, then it showed Caylee’s face slowly morphing into a picture of her actual skull, with duct tape conveniently attached to where they assumed it could probably and/or maybe have kind of (in all likelihood) been attached.
If anyone thought Linda & The Laughing Guy were getting a little desperate, this was confirmation of that fact. Never before has such a pack of lies been strung out by the prosecution through a murder case.
“YES…” people yell… “BUT THERE WAS DUCT TAPE ON CAYLEE! WE SAW THE PHOTOGRAPHS!”
No. You didn’t see “the photographs”. There were photographs of the 3 pieces of duct tape retrieved from the scene – but there were never any photographs of Caylee’s skull with duct tape all over it.
Sure enough, there’s no disputing that duct tape was found at the scene – but it was certainly not “stuck on Caylee”, nor was it positioned over Caylee’s nose & mouth as the prosecution alleged.
All of that was purely a figment of The Laughing Guy’s lucid imagination.
I say to you now, there was no “chloroform & duct tape”. They were never the “murder weapons”. We’re looking at the FACTS here, not fantasy forensics & supposition.
This is not a damn spy movie plot you can just keep juggling around until it looks good.
So… can YOU handle the truth?
Here are some additional FACTS in relation to the duct tape:
There was NO DUCT TAPE on the skull.
There was 1 piece attached to hair mat (Lower right side of the skull).
There was 1 other piece attached to that piece… and the 3rd piece was found 8-9 feet away.
There was never any evidence of any duct tape being placed across Caylee’s mouth or nose.
Also take into account that the guy everyone seems to have forgotten about – Roy Kronk – moved the skull at least twice prior to it being found. Once when he lifted the bag 4 feet in the air and the skull rolled out – and a 2nd time when he lifted the skull after putting his meter stick in the eye socket.
The only partial profile of DNA found on the tape absolutely excluded Caylee and Casey from having had any contact with the tape.
Here’s Cheney Mason on the specifics in a recent “On The Record” interview with Greta Van Susteren:

Before anyone jumps up and says there was no DNA because the duct tape had been UNDER WATER for months (so it all got washed away) – let me point out these facts…
The “under water” theory exposed:
The state – along with Texas Equusearch – had been claiming that the remains and all the evidence found in the woods had been under water for some time (due to a storm), which is why the body was not found earlier.
They also claimed none of their search party was in “that patch” of the woods because it was all under water too. It later transpired they were in that same area, but the remains were not there at that time. This means someone (other than Casey) put the remains there between the fruitless Texas Equusearch and police search – and the ultimate “discovery” of the remains on December 11th 2008. Could that have been reward-hungry Roy Kronk?
The thing is – science can tell the difference from duct tape that was submerged in water or sitting on dry land. We’re not talking about the latest cutting edge forensics here either. For decades, science was been able to tell us such things. So let’s hear what science has to say in this instance.
There are no forensics to prove all that evidence found in the woods was submerged under water, as the prosecution claimed. In other words, Caylee’s remains were not there while that part of the woods was under water. So like I said earlier, Casey could NOT have secretly placed the remains there AFTER the water dissipated – because she was in jail at that time.
Here’s the bottom line:
Science and meteorology tell us that the woods were under water at some point. However, science also tells us the evidence and remains collected at the scene were not submerged in water. Nowhere in any of the scientific & forensic tests done on the evidence collected, does it say all of this was submerged under water. If it was, forensics could tell us that and it did not.
To conclude part #2 in this series – and regarding the specific nonsensical accusations that Casey used both chloroform and duct tape to murder her daughter – here’s a short video from the trial. It features Cheney Mason again as he goes for an acquittal based on the State’s fabrication of evidence & ongoing lies:
CM Exposing Duct Tape Myth video
In the above video, Cheney Mason confirms:
“In our case there has been no evidence presented that Casey used duct tape for any purpose… that she used chloroform ever for any purpose… and that in any way or any capacity whatsoever she contributed to the cause of death of Caylee. It is forcing, guessing & speculation. It is a stacking of inferences and suspicion on suspicion to suggest it had anything at all to do with cause of death.”
The only person intrinsically tied to the duct tape throughout this whole trial (through ownership and documented usage) was George Anthony. I’ll cover the reason why in a future post in this series.
So there you go… the duct tape myth exposed and explained. As I always say, the truth is out there for anyone that wants to hear it. Whether they can handle it is another matter completely.
