Nancy Grace: Update On Missing 6 Year Old Florida Boy, Adji Desir.

Update for 1/27/09:
The ground search for little Adji Desir has been called off and police are now depending solely on tips.

Fellow bloggers, please take any or all of these clips and photos and post them on your sites.

More than 50,000 fliers have been distributed in the hopes of finding a missing 6-year-old Florida boy.

The U.S. Postal Service and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children gave out the fliers Saturday with information about Adji Desir.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office said the boy disappeared from a migrant farm worker village in Immokalee in southwest Florida Jan. 10. A group of 250 deputies searched a three-quarter mile radius of Adji’s home on Saturday.

Lt. Tom Smith said officials would also look at sex offenders in the area.

Authorities said the boy is developmentally disabled and has the mental capacity of a 2-year-old. The FBI has assigned special agents to help.

Immokalee is southeast of Fort Myers.

Casey Anthony’s Attorney Prepares To Depose Her Ex-Boyfriend, Tony Lazaro, And Others.

Prosecution Releases More Than 1500 Pages Of Caylee Anthony Tips. Majority Of Them Are From Seers And Psychics.

The defense asked for them and here they are:

Judge Agrees To Start Casey Anthony’s Trial Date Sooner: January 5, 2009.

Pre-trial is December 11th.

Neither Casey Anthony nor her attorney was at Tuesday morning’s arraignment on murder charges Casey is facing in the death of her daughter, Caylee. Casey had already entered a written plea of not guilty, so she was not required to show up.

Judge Stan Strickland accepted the written plea and that means the state now has 15 days to hand over evidence to Casey’s attorney, Jose Baez, that the state plans to use in the trial against her. Any new evidence the state plans to make use of also must be handed over to Baez as they get it.

The state also asked the judge to move the trial period back from a previously set date in early February, possibly to put more pressure of the defense,. The judge agreed and Casey’s pre-trial conference is now set for December 11 and the trial is set for January 5.

Casey Anthony’s Trial Date Is Set For February 9, 2009.

FBI Tests Conclude That Human Decomposition Took Place In Casey Anthony’s Car

However, the DNA testing did not conclusively prove that the hair strand found in the trunk belonged to Caylee.

Also, the hair strand found on a shovel, which Casey borrowed from a neighbor, did not belong to either Caylee or Casey:

Forensic Test Results In The Casey Anthony Case Released

A list of some of the highlights of the results:

  1. Confirmation that a hair sample found in the vehicle “exhibits characteristics of apparent decomposition.” The report also says that specific hair is “microscopically similar” to hair investigators took from Caylee’s hairbrush, but couldn’t confirm it was conclusively Caylee’s.
  2. DNA testing done on that piece of hair and compared with a sample provided by Casey confirmed that neither Casey nor Caylee can be “excluded as the source of the hair,” because the “mtDNA sequences … are the same.”
  3. Tests also confirmed “residues of chloroform” within a spare tire cover found inside the trunk of Casey’s car. “Residues consistent with chloroform” were also found within the left and right side trunk liner. The report says no other chemicals were detected within those items.
  4. Odor tests that were conducted on the carpet inside Casey’s car concluded that 80 percent of the chemicals identified were “consistent with decompositional events.” The results of the FBI’s Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) on the same carpet concluded that “while these are still preliminary results … both odor analysis and LIBS results appear to be quite consistent with a decompositional event having occurred in the trunk of the vehicle.”
  5. The report also clarifies that the tests conducted appear to point to human decomposition and not animal.
  6. The report’s final conclusion is that the results of the tests and comparisons indicate “that a portion of the total odor signature identified in the Florida vehicle trunk is consistent with a decompositional event that could be of human origin.”
