ORLANDO, Fla. - Authorities are trying to determine if there's a link between items found by divers in an Orlando park's lake and the case of missing 3-year-old Caylee Anthony believed to have been killed.
Divers searching the area of Little Eonlockhatchee River found a plastic bag containing toys and small bones on Thursday, a bounty hunter told NBC News affiliate, WESH.com.
It was not clear if those were human remains or if they had any relation to Caylee.
Inside the bag, weighted down by bricks, were two toys and bones the size of fingers and toes, Padilla said. There also was a shamrock, which bounty hunter Leonard Padilla said was a favorite symbol of Casey Anthony, WESH reported on its Web site.
Anthony, 22, pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the case of her daughter.
A small bag recovered by divers Thursday was "of no evidentiary value" in the case of missing 3-year-old Caylee Anthony, who is believed to have been killed, Florida authorities said.
What does that mean? "No evidentiary value"?
That probably means they were not able to get samples or it was contaminated. Most likely, it was so damaged by water and deteriorated that there are no DNA samples... although with bones, one would think they could extract the mitochondial DNA, and test her mother for a match.
I really hope they find a way to close this case and charge Casey Anthony. We all know what the end result will be. It's been too long to be otherwise. This has been such a heart wrenching case and I wish somebody would have been able to save Caylee.
