Casey Anthony: Defense Team Embarassed by Witness
Here’s something for you on a Friday afternoon. Jose Baez’s “surprise witness” became an embarrassment this afternoon when he held a news conference outside of the Orlando courthouse and said that he did not know the Anthony family.
From ABC News:
Defense attorney Jose Baez included Vasco Thompson, a convicted kidnapper, as a last minute surprise addition to his amended witness list earlier this week. Baez claimed that Thompson and Casey Anthony’s father, George Anthony, shared a series of phone conversations the day before 2-year-old Caylee Anthony’s disappearance was reported to authorities in July 2008.
George Anthony angrily issued a statement through his attorney earlier this week denying those claims. Today, Vasco Thompson stood outside the Orange County courthouse and also denied that he’d ever met George Anthony.
“I have no idea who George Anthony is,” Thompson said. “The phone number they got, I didn’t have that number until February of 2009. I don’t know why they dragged me into all this mess.”
