Casey Anthony: Day 13 = Chloroform + Computer searches
Three expert witnesses testified today on the computer searches found on the Anthony home computer. Kevin Stenger is the one I first watched. He was a forensic computer expert who used the encase software to detail what happened and what was queried on the Anthony computer.
I don’t know about you but I’ve never queried “chloroform” or how to make chloroform on my computer. But that and more was found on the computer. Interesting how the police and the actual software designer spoke about what COULD have happened and what DID happen on that computer using the terms “cache” and “internet history” and of course most of the searches were done on Google, using Mozilla firefox 2.0 and many wikipedia URLs were retrieved by the finders. Bradley who designed encase was on the stand talking about his product but also what he knew or did not know. Such as when a history is deleted. Only that it was deleted manually. Also, the actual page as seen on that day in March 2008 actually looked. They are stored in two different areas.
(CNN) — Someone conducted keyword searches on “chloroform” using a desktop computer located in the home Casey Anthony shared with her parents, a computer examiner testified Wednesday in Anthony’s capital murder trial.
The searches were found in the “deleted” or “unallocated space” portion of the computer’s hard drive, Detective Sandra Osborne of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office testified, meaning they had been deleted.
However, she told jurors, deleted material remains on a computer’s hard drive and can be retrieved until it is overwritten by new data. It had not been overwritten on the Anthonys’ computer, she said, and “a complete Internet history” was obtained. Osborne said she turned the data over to her sergeant, who is an expert at analyzing such material.
Anthony, 25, faces seven counts in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, including first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse and misleading investigators. If convicted, she could face the death penalty.
