Spitz makes me want to spit.
Dr. Werner Spitz’s report on autopsy findings in the case against Casey Anthony, were made public today, though the document itself has not been released through the media. The Orlando Sentinel has the full story here.
Casey Anthony, as we know, is the mother who is awaiting trial for the murder of her daughter, Caylee Anthony. Dr. Werner Spitz is the defense team’s forensic pathologist hired to dispute any claims made by Dr. Jan Garavaglia, Medical Examiner for the State’s case.
Even though it’s the defense team’s job to create reasonable doubt using any means they can, the “reasonable doubt” in the opinions of Dr. Spitz are hardly reasonable. (They are a little wacko, if you want my opinion!)
Caylee Anthony is double bagged, duct tape is placed on her mouth area, she’s tossed in the woods, and Dr. Spitz cannot and will not agree it was a homicide?
Give me a break while I get my spit balls lined up, Dr. Spitz!!
Dr. Spitz concludes:
The manner of death is also undetermined because there is no scientific information available that the death was at the hands of another.
Dear Dr. Spitz:
So, no homicide? Okay, then tell me, whose hands put Caylee in TWO garbage bags? Whose hands affixed the duct tape? Whose hands tossed Caylee in the woods?
Did Caylee toss herself in the woods, Dr. Spitz?
I understand you are probably mincing words here, right? You’re just using semantics when you say there is no “scientific” evidence of a homicide? How then does science conclude homicide? Does science reason like you or I, Dr. Spitz?
Okay Dr. Spitz, I’ll give you your piece about the scientific stuff, because I am sure not a scientist. But I gotta tell ya, you can be scientific, sure, but don’t you also have to be “reasonable” Doctor?
I hardly think you are using reason when you conclude that because Caylee’s DNA was not found on the duct tape, it brings into question whether the duct tape was affixed before decomposition?
Your reason tells you the duct tape was put there after decomposition, and the duct tape could not have kept the mandible in place? You say:
…the lack of entomological evidence found on the duct tape is also inconsistent with the duct tape being placed over any orifice that would have attached to the duct tape during decomposition (skin would be expected to adhere to duct tape).
Well, common sense tells me, Dr. Spitz, that since the poor body was in the water for all those months, and given the harsh elements, couldn’t the DNA decompose too?
But, I keep coming back to your most confusing conclusion. If Caylee’s death did not happen at the hands of another (i.e. homicide) who put the duct tape there? It’s one thing to conclude that a three year old may have placed her self in a bag in an effort to commit suicide, it’s a whole ‘nother thing to suggest that “no hands of another” placed the duct tape on her skeleton.
Dr. Spitz, you may want to reconsider your conclusions because, ah, you sound a bit confused.
Good Doctor, I’m disappointed in you.
I have no more questions.
