Casey Anthony: Psychologists and Psychics

June 27, 2011

Another busy day in the trial of accused murderer Casey Anthony.

As we heard this morning, Anthony was examined by three psychologists over the weekend, and after reviewing their reports, the judge declared Casey competent to continue.

Also, Sgt. John Allen identified two videos sent to investigators, taken by a man named James Hoover. The videos showed private investigator Dominic Casey one month before Caylee’s remains were found in in the woods area off Suburban Drive. As we discussed 2 years ago, allegedly Casey was on the phone with psychic Jeanette Lucas.

From Central Florida News:

In the video, Mr. Casey was seen talking on a cell phone. He identified the person on the other end as Jeanette Lucas, a psychic who led him to the area around Suburban Drive in his search for the remains of Caylee Anthony. He later added that no one from the Anthony family directed him to check that area.

Dominic Casey also said the first time he went into the woods, he had never given Hoover permission to videotape him, and had no idea why he was doing so.

He said his second search was to “prove a psychic wrong.” He was seen using a probe in the video, and said it was because he saw a lot of snakes in the area.


Casey Anthony: Witness List Revealed

March 23, 2010

It looks like Zenaida Gonzalez’s witness list includes more than 150 people.

Included are Casey Anthony, man of her friends, George Anthony and Cindy Anthony and her defense attorney, Jose Baez.

There are additional names that can be found below. Looks like a “who’s who” in this case. Thoughts?

From the Orlando Sentinel:

Attorney John Morgan filed the witness list Friday in Orange County Circuit Court.

Also among the potential witnesses: Private investigators Dominic Casey and Jim Hoover; California bounty hunter Leonard Padilla, who helped post Casey Anthony’s bond; FBI agents; FDLE agents and detectives from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Morgan could call Anthony’s ex-boyfriends as witnesses — including Jesse Grund, Ricardo Morales and Anthony Lazzaro, according to his list.

Casey Anthony: Dominic Casey Deposition Moved to December

November 12, 2009

Dominic Casey, the private investigator hired by Casey Anthony’s parents, George and Cindy Anthony, will be deposed by prosecutors regarding the case on December 16.


The controversial PI was originally scheduled to be deposed on Thursday.

In January, WFTV obtained video of Mr. Casey aggressively searching the site where Caylee’s remains were ultimately found. The video was taken by his colleague, PI Jim Hoover, in mid-November 2008—less than a month before the toddler’s remains were discovered by Roy Kronk. Mr. Casey claimed to be talking on his cell phone to a psychic while the video was being shot.

Casey Anthony: Prosecution to Depose Dominic Casey, Mallory Parker

September 16, 2009

Prosecutors in the Casey Anthony case filed a notice yesterday of their intent to depose Anthonys’ former private investigator Dominic Casey and Lee Anthony’s girlfriend, Mallory Parker.

From WESH:

Casey has been the subject of much speculation in the wake of videotape taken of him searching the area where Caylee’s remains were found a month later.

Casey said he was following the direction of a psychic who directed him to the area. Both depositions are scheduled for November at the state attorney’s office.

Casey Anthony: Motion to Make Dominic Casey Testify

September 14, 2009

Lawyers for Zenaida Gonzalez filed a new motion today hoping to force the Anthonys’ former private investigator to submit to a sworn deposition.

From WESH:

In their new filing in the civil lawsuit against Casey Anthony, Gonzalez’ lawyers claim work done by private investigator Dominic Casey is not confidential.

They also cite an 80-page transcript of an interview Dominic Casey did with detectives earlier this year where he spoke freely about certain aspects of the criminal case against Casey Anthony. She is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of her daughter, Caylee, who was 2 when she was reported missing in 2008.

Gonzalez and her team want Dominic Casey to pay for their attorneys’ fees, costs and “any other sanctions” the court feels is appropriate.

Casey Anthony: Parents Won’t Need to Testify

September 10, 2009

Lawyers for Zenaida Gonzalez, the woman who is suing accused murderer Casey Anthony for defamation, have decided that they no longer need to hear testimony from Cindy and George Anthony.

From MyFox Orlando:

In court Wednesday Gonzalez’s attorney Keith Mitnik told the court he no longer needed to know answers to questions that were given to Cindy and George Anthony during depositions that they refused to answer.

Instead the only motion heard had to do with Dominic Casey who at one time was the private investigator for the Baez Law Firm who represents Casey Anthony. Dominic Casey was then retained by Cindy, George and Casey Anthony.

Diana Tennis represents Dominic Casey. She says all information he knows on the Casey/Caylee Anthony case is protected by work privileged and should not be subject to deposition questions in an unexpected move she put her client on the stand. “All he knows about this case is related to defense teams and every person out there who has a lawyer that hires and investigator has a right to believe those secrets won’t be told. It’s that simple.”

Casey Anthony: Ethics Allegations Motivate Jose Baez

September 2, 2009

Good stuff today from The TV Guy Hal Boedeker surrounding the ethics allegations against Jose Baez.

I think anytime you are accused of doing something that you know isn’t true, you’ll always fight even harder, both while you are being accused and afterwards. Thoughts?

From the TV Guy:

“Jose Baez says he knew he did nothing wrong, so it came as no surprise to him when he received this letter from the Florida Bar clearing him of an ethics complaint,” WKMG’s Mike DeForest reported.

Baez insisted that he never told former private investigator Dominic Casey to do anything unethical, DeForest said. Baez had no idea why the private eye would make such a charge. Baez was cleared after a four-month review by the Florida Bar.

“It’s discouraging to hear your name thrown around like mud, especially when you work so hard,” Baez told DeForest. “I know what it’s like to be accused of something you haven’t done. So what it does is it really motivates me to fight harder.”
