Pipitone story to center on “foolproof suffocation”

From Orlando Sentinel, 11-20-2012:

“A highly promoted local television report set to air this evening will center on Internet searches that authorities didn’t know about during the high-profile trial of Casey Anthony, according to the lead prosecutor in the case.

Prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick confirmed in an email to the Orlando Sentinel that someone used the Anthony family computer to search for “foolproof suffocation” on June 16, 2008, the day Casey Anthony’s father said she left the family’s home with Caylee for the last time.

In the notorious 31 days which followed, Anthony’s parents repeatedly sought to see their granddaughter — and, authorities say, Casey Anthony repeatedly lied about her whereabouts.

Though computer searches were a key issue at Anthony’s murder trial, the “foolproof suffocation” term never came up. Anthony’s criminal defense attorney, Jose Baez, later wrote about the search in his book, “Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story.”

Burdick wrote that the Orange County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed “there was a computer search on ‘foolproof suffocation’ on 6-16-08 that they did not find.” Burdick stressed that this information “is not ‘new,'” as it was already published in Baez’s book months ago.

However, she confirmed that she “did not know about it before or during trial.”

WKMG-Channel 6 has been promoting an expose by investigative reporter Tony Pipitone, advertised to contain evidence “that could have changed the jury’s mind” and “points right at Casey,” which is set to air tonight at 11 p.m.

But if the segment centers on the computer searches mentioned in Baez’s book, Pipitone’s is not the first reporting done on that subject.

ABC News’ Christina Ng, citing Baez’s book, reported on new “suicide-related searches, on terms including ‘foolproof suffocation’ and ‘venturing into the pro-suicide pit'” as long ago as July 5.

In her report, Ng said that the searches were discovered by a defense expert, and were never disclosed by prosecutors.

“I have a hard time believing that law enforcement wouldn’t check the Internet history of the day that the child went missing,” Baez said on “Good Morning America”in July. Other media outlets have also reported on the searches.

After WKMG began promoting its report, the Sentinel began reaching out to key players in the murder case. Burdick’s fellow prosecutor Jeff Ashton said he could not comment until after the WKMG report aired, and Casey Anthony’s current attorneys, Charles Greene and Cheney Mason, said they didn’t know the subject of the report.

Mason expressed doubt that any substantive evidence would have been missed by authorities, who conducted an exhaustive investigation.

“I find it hard to imagine that there’s any evidence that they didn’t know about that would have been incriminating,” Mason said.

Promotional materials for Pipitone’s report suggest that the evidence he’s unearthed would incriminate Casey Anthony, but the ABC News report quoted Baez’s book, in which he suggested it was her father George Anthony who was damaged by the evidence.

Baez noted that, before the “foolproof suffocation” search, someone logged into an AOL Instant Messenger account on the computer. According to Baez’s writings, George Anthony had an AIM account, but Casey Anthony did not.

“Then someone typed in ‘foolproof suffocation.’ It was misspelled, and George was a poor speller,” Baez wrote.”

Here are Jose’s current comments from his Facebook page:

“I see a lot of my fb friends commenting of the Pipitone Report and I will tell you this. The promo is extremely misleading, as they are trying to show that I am saying that the computer searches would have hurt Casey, when I am arguing completely to the contrary. Secondly, there timeline is off by an hour we disagree and they are using a blogger who has never been admitted in a court of law and I had two independent experts verify the timeline. They are wrong but would prefer to mislead people. It’s truly ridiculous…”

So when push comes to shove, it’s all BS just like we thought. This Pipitone clown is basing his misleading report around a Websleuths blogger (JWG). Click here to view the post it relates to.

    I figured this is what it was about. So tonight, Tony Baloney will say that Casey did have an AOL IM account so it was probably her who did the searches. Maybe we can finally get to the bottom of whether she had an AOL IM or just Yahoo IM.

  2. Drew Hensley says:

    Well Jose is on his FB page now talking about how misleading the promo is for Pipitone’s report. He is going to try to tamper with the timeline Jose provides for July 16 to make it look like Casey did it; ie, the suicide related searches. Apparently Pipitone’s source is an internet blog?!

    • Here is exactly what Jose said on his FB page:

      pletely to the contrary. Secondly, there timeline is off by an hour we disagree and they are using a blogger who has never been admitted in a court of law and I had two independent experts verify the timeline. They are wrong but would prefer to mislead people. It’s truly ridiculous

  3. They have nothing on her and never will because she is Innocent. I knew it was nothing. Casey didn’t make thos searches George did.

  4. I think that if anyone questions what type of person would blame the victim of sexual abuse, they need look no further than the likes of Tony Pipitone. Or Vinnie Politan. Or Nancy Grace.

    Even if they show Casey had an AIM account, how on EARTH would it explain the user logged into that account? It was clearly George.

    • It looks to me like it will center on a dispute on when the computer searches took place. Jose has his experts, they have theirs. In the end it’s not a “bombshell” report, it’s a rehashing of old information for the purpose of boosting their ratings and keeping the story alive.

      • Drew Hensley says:

        Well you know part of the timeline for that day the prosecution was aware of. Ashton mentions in his book that Jose’s team caught this. They agreed with the timeline up until now maybe, bc all the facts are out and they don’t support the prosecution’s claims.

  5. In my mind, whatever the timeline is, George Anthony is implicated. If Casey indeed left the house at 12:50 pm on June 16,2008, then it could only have been him that made the searches for the foolproof suffocation. If it wasn’t him that made the searches, that means he lied about Casey leaving the house. He is also implicated because he seems to have been the only person with access to his special duct tape. It was seen three weeks after Casey was put in jail, it was on his gas can and it was attached somehow to Caylee’s hair.

    • Exactly, Debbie.

      Jose went over all of this in his book, and it’s disgusting that others are trying to manipulate the timeline.

      • JA Kalskett says:

        Kira,
        There ARE two timelines…one that ended ‘early-to-mid June (that Casey has been prevented from telling in her defense… and the heinous-murder story, that continues to elude definition…IMO, as long as ppl believe the h-mstory is ALL there is, they will not ever ‘see’ Caylee was already dead, and beginning to decompose before the ‘mid-June’ Father’s Day video.

    • JA Kalskett says:

      Caylee was already decomposing by the 16th…ANYTHING short of evidence to Caylee’s whereabouts on June 14th, IS AFTER the fact of the death event that began her decomposition ‘early-to-mid June’ [which begins/occurs hours after death]

  6. I am wondering if the searches were a indication of premeditation to murder then suicide?

    • JA Kalskett says:

      IMO and from my POV, any searches after Flag Day were the result of ‘someone’ who KNEW Caylee was decomposing…tho, instead of reporting the child’s death, they ‘assumed GREAT AUTHORITY’ and removed every sign and bit of evidence that Caylee was missing, dead and decomposing before Father’s Day…Casey saw and believed the Father’s Day video, like everyone who ever saw it.

  7. Please clarify what u mean by caylee being deceased before the fathers day video? Are u saying that was not the date they visited the nursing home, and Casey did have a AIM acct i tght she used to talk to the cop who was fired for lying abt their relationship??
