He went back to Surburban Drive a third time. He thinks it was the 18th of November.. This time he was just looking around. He did not go into the woods. He is not sure if there were other openings in woods. He did not see any bags that appeared to contain human remains. No further questions
.  Mr George to cross.  Initially, he was working for the Baez law firm and then he went to work for the Anthonys. He was following up tips. Sidebar.
Frank George, Prosecution
Apparently, we are now on recess. 
Mr Casey testifies he worked for the Defense until he went to work for the Anthonys. DC>Yes.
He testifiies that Ginnete Lucas directed him to site. Cindy Anthonys was traumatized and destroyed per DC. Geroge Anthony was similarly traumatized and destroyed per DC. He went there under the direction of a psychic who called him. 
 It was Saturday, November 15, 2008.Cindy and George did not send him into words. Frank George shows him a picuture to identify. It is a pic of Suburban Drive. He is asked to show where he parked. DC states the pic is difficult to see where he parked.  He did not park his vehicle. It was Mr Hoovers vehicle. He approximates on map where the car was parked.  He marks where he enters woods. He entered and exited the woods via the same route.  He is shown a different pic of th same area. He  was having trouble with pic. He is asked to place an X where he entered the woods. This is when he saw the broken toilet and numerous trash bags.He cut a few of them open. He found a greenish bath mat. He did not see a red Disney bag. This was not an exhaustive search. He was on the phone most of time. He left there and went to the abandoned house across the street, by the retention pond. There was water "ankle deep." There is a drop-off about 6 feet after you enter the woods. You can see the current. The next day when he went in there was the same amount of water. After he  cut open the trash bags he did not get on his hands and knees and look through the "muck"a
November 16, 2008> He went into the woods.He is asked to mark where he parked the car in a red color pen. He was  on the phone with Ginnett Lucas. He went after he had told her what he had saw on November 15, 2008.  He put an x and a square where he entered the woods.  He still saw water on the ground. On this day, he took a probe and a trowel.  He does not recall using the trowel.
As some have pointed out, for those w/o video, D. Casey has seemed flustered, confused at times. He's having issues hearing. He is shown the pic of Suburban Drive with the markings of where he parked and entered the woods. Mr Hoover  was 10 feet behind him. On this day he was not aware of his taping initially , he approved him to tape without video. Today he found out he taped with audio.
He is shown the pic of Suburban Drive and asked to mark where he parked and entered the woods. He is asked to date and write notations of the markings he identified. 
He went a third time to the woods a couple of days later. He walked toward the school and the Hopespring and then to his car. He never left the street. No more questions.
Ann Finnell>  He is shown a pic by Ann Finnell. He is asked to identify it. It is marked on where he went into the woods initially. He is asked to mark it as the first day of entry to the woods and then the The pic is like this. He is asked to mark where he parked the car and where he entered the woods. on the first and second day. He testifies that he made a map like this for the prosecution in March 2011.Finnell asks for sidebar.
A similar pic to the one DCis asked to place a X where Dominic says law enforcement never approached him with questions about his searches before that.he parked and entered the woods on each day he searched the woods.
DC testifies that it was a deposition in March 2011 in which he marked a map. There was a court reporter present.

He testifies he can not testify to scale as he did not have a tape measurer with him. He testifies the video is a  true and accurate evidence of his search. He will not say they are absolutely accurate.
