Autopsy of Caylee Marie Anthony released

Grieving grandfather George Anthony stormed out of an Orange County courtroom this morning after a judge denied a request to seal Caylee Marie’s autopsy report.

It revealed that, as reported, there was in fact duct tape wrapped several times around her lower face and it was still attached to her hair.

No pictures were released.

Florida has very liberal laws which make most all documents available to the public.  A relatively new exception states that autopsy photos are not public in Florida under a law named after racing legend Dale Earnhardt, who died in 2001 during a crash at the Daytona 500.

Concerns about the possibility of Earnhardt’s photos becoming public prompted Florida lawmakers to quickly pass the exemption.

Under the law, it is a felony for people to look at or copy autopsy photos and videos unless they can persuade a judge to let them do so.

Go to Orlando Sentinel to see a copy of the autopsy report, the forensics report, and FBI report of examination as well as complete coverage of recent rulings in the case.
