Autopsy: Duct tape on Caylee before decomposition
ORLANDO, Fla. — An autopsy for slain toddler Caylee Anthony shows duct tape was placed on the girl’s face before her body began to decompose.
The report released Friday agrees with authorities’ contention the girl was killed, but still doesn’t say how she died. It did not say whether the duct tape was placed on the child before or after her death.
Circuit Court Judge Stan Strickland ordered the autopsy report to made public. The child’s grandparents fought against its release.
Caylee’s mother, Casey Anthony, has been charged in the girl’s death. She has pleaded not guilty and says a baby sitter kidnapped her toddler.
Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty if she is convicted of first-degree murder.
