The sad story now has more details. The autopsy report and lab analyses are available on Orlando Sentinel website: Autopsy of Caylee Marie released
A few findings seem important:
- Concentration of gaseous chloroform in the trunk of Casey Anthony's car was roughly a million times higher than a similar Pontiac car trunk that was used for comparison.
- The remains found in December were only a skeleton and hair. Apparently animals scattered the remains before it was completely decomposed, judging by sets of vertebrae found together and not scattered to individual locations.
- Duct tape adhered to the front of the skull and kept the lower jaw (mandible) from falling away -- it was still in contact with the upper skull (maxilla), meaning that the tape was attached before the body decomposed.
A sad end to a precious life.
