Casey Anthony: Depositions and Discovery

Jose Baez held depositions on Tuesday regarding Casey's actions the day Caylee's remains were found. Also, 700+ pages of evidence documents were presented to Baez on Monday. Documents should be released to the media and public by week's end. State's Attorney to discuss and/or petition the court regarding Baez's motion for change of venue.

Casey Anthony's attorney deposed on Tuesday, Lt. Tammy Unser, a jail employee who was with Anthony when word came that her daughter's remains had been found.

Attorney Jose Baez also questioned under oath two supervisors about why Casey Anthony was videotaped in Orange County Jail on December 2008 when the remains of a child were found in Orange County. Those remains were later identified as those of Caylee Anthony, Casey's missing daughter.

Baez states accused child killer Casey Anthony wasn't treated very well December 11, the day she found out that a little girl's remains were found near her house. The jail says it took her to the medical clinic in case she needed help and, in fact, she did ask for medication for the first time ever.

Casey Anthony was watching Channel 9 the morning she found out remains, likely her daughter Caylee's, had been found in the woods near her house. She was taken to the waiting area outside the medical clinic, one of the common areas in the jail where there are security cameras rolling 24/7, and her reaction that morning was videotaped.

Baez neglected to ask the judge to seal the statements of Lt. Tammy Unser and others who were aware of Casey's anxiety attack on December 11. So, even though the jail video has not been released, the public already knows how Casey reacted.

"Her hands started to sweat. She started rubbing them profusely. She was in waist chains and handcuffs and she kept saying, 'The waist chains are getting tighter and tighter on me, please loosen them,'" Jail Lt. Tammy Unser told Detective Philip Graves during an interview on the afternoon of December 11 (listen to interview).

"I disagree totally with the way she was treated," Baez said.

Baez questioned jail Lt. Unser and sheriff's office Detective Philip Graves, who investigated Casey's reaction on December 11 for the murder cases.

"There's been a lot of reports that you purposely put her in front of a camera at the jail. Is that true?" WFTV reporter Kathi Belich asked Graves as he left the State Attorney's Office.

"I can't comment," Graves said.

Baez seems to have backed off his accusations that Casey's privacy rights were violated, as he tries to keep the videotape out of the public eye and possibly out of the trial.

"We need to get to the bottom of everything that occurred in the case," Baez said Tuesday.

Eyewitness News asked Baez whether Casey's considering suing the jail.

"I'm not thinking of a lawsuit. If she feels she has a case after our investigation, she will have a right to pursue it," Baez said.

Baez questioned Lt. Unser for about two hours and said he needs to continue questioning her. He said we'll be surprised when we find out what he's learned so far about the jail taping, even though he says he doesn't know the whole story yet.

The same subject will take Casey back to court later this month.

On May 28, Baez, or one of a handful of attorneys will fight to make sure the public never sees the video of Casey's reaction to the news her daughter's remains had been found.
A petition to the court will be made that the videotape should be thrown out because Anthony was set up and her rights violated. He would not be specific about what he found out on Monday.

The depositions were not open to the public.

More Discovery Released to Defense

Also on Monday, prosecutors released to Baez 700 more pages of evidence, including public works logs relating to Dec. 11, 2008, which is the day meter reader Roy Kronk found Caylee's remains.

The new documents have not been made public yet.

Baez said he is frustrated with the slow release of critical information from the state attorney's office and would not rule out asking the judge to do something about it.

A state attorney's spokesman said they will be meeting in the next day or two to discuss how they will react to Baez's motion to move the trial out of Orange County, which was filed on Monday.
