Casey Anthony: Padilla Speaks Out About PIs and Videotapes

More is being learned about a videotape shot by one of the Anthony family's private investigators and his involvement with an ex-emplyee of Jose Baez, Casey Anthony's attorney.

It allegedly shows the area where little Caylee's body was found...a month before that discovery. Bounty Hunter Leonard Padilla, who first sprung Casey Anthony from jail before changing his mind about her innocence, says he learned of the videotape when private investigator Jim Hoover approached him several days after December 11th.

That was the day Caylee's body was discovered in the woods less than a mile from her home.

Hoover told Padilla he had some photos of the Anthony's and a video of that wooded area that he'd shot on November 15th, and wanted to sell them. He then told Padilla why he and the Anthony's other private eye, Dominic Casey, were near that area a month before the body was discovered.

"Hoover said, 'Dominic called me and told me, Hoover, you better get up here, we found Caylee,'" Padilla recalls. "Hoover told me he asked Dominic if she was alive, and Dominic said, 'No, she's dead. We're going after a body.'"

Hoover then showed Padilla the video, which was indeed time-stamped November 15th. It shows Dominic Casey pacing the wooded area and talking on a cell phone, across the street and a short distance away from the spot where Caylee's remains were eventually found. Padilla's next move was to call the FBI investigator assigned to the Anthony case.

"My next call went to Nick Savage, saying, 'Hey, this guy's got something you may want to look at. I don't know what it means, but you might want to check it out,'" Padilla says. "And the next day, they took his cell phone, they took his video, they took his pictures. He's probably not too happy with me," he chuckles.

The FBI wants to talk to those private investigators to figure out what that videotape means to the case, but Casey's defense attorney is stalling that process.

Jose Baez wants a special master appointed to make sure that no privileged information is revealed when those investigators are questioned. His request will have to be heard in court.
