Witness Tampering Alleged at Casey Anthony Trial

A Florida sheriff announced Tuesday that authorities were looking into witness tampering allegations during Casey Anthony’s murder trial. The sheriff held a wide-ranging news conference with his top investigators in an effort to bring closure to this case. Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings wouldn’t say who was accused of witness tampering, but it didn’t involve Cindy Anthony. Cindy stunned prosecutors during the trial when she testified that she had done searches for chloroform on the family’s computer. The prosecutors believed, along with sheriff’s investigators, that Casey Anthony had performed the search so the government presented evidence at trial that chloroform was found in Anthony’s car trunk. This information insinuated that she could have used it to render Caylee unconscious. Witnesses were later called to challenge Cindy Anthony’s claim, and even after the verdict, prosecutors hinted at possibly charging her with perjury. As for the alleged witness tampering, detective John Allen would only say that the sheriff’s office has interviewed some witnesses and that they are hoping to get to the bottom of this case. The information is from the Associated Press http://news.findlaw.com/ap/other/1110/07-12-2011/20110712153500_24.html
