Casey Anthony: Hearing Today Focuses on “Death Band”
The defense is arguing today why certain hair evidence should be excluded from Casey Anthony’s first-degree murder trial.
From the Orlando Sentinel:
Assistant State Attorney Jeff Ashton questioned FBI fiber examiner Karen Korsberg Lowe via video conference this morning. She is answering questions about hair evidence and “postmortem root banding.”
Such banding is a dark coloration on or near the hair root that studies say appear in deceased individuals.
A hair strand found near the left side of the trunk liner of the Pontiac Sunfire that Anthony was driving before her daughter disappeared showed such signs of decomposition.
A comparison to hair taken from Caylee’s brush and DNA taken from Casey Anthony showed neither the mother nor daughter could be excluded as the source of the hair.
