Casey Anthony, Jail House Note Investigation

Casey Anthony has written jail house notes which are under investigation. The twenty four year old Orange County prisoner is serving time for the first degree murder of her two year old daughter, Caylee Marie, in 2007. Fellow inmate Robin Adams may have provided key information for the case against Anthony through a series of secret chats and extensive note passing. Florida State prosecutors released Wednesday lengthy letters from Anthony, as well as Adams' testimony, which shed light on the case against Anthony. If convicted of the charges against her, Anthony faces the death sentence for the murder of her daughter.

Staff at the Orange County jail have investigated the friendship inmates Anthony and Adams managed to forge through the bars of their cells. Despite the rather solitary term Anthony was serving in protective custody, Adams may have inadvertently provided prosecutors with
details surrounding Caylee's disappearance and death.

On Wednesday, investigators revealed, through Adams' recollections, details of the December 2008 day the remains of Anthony's daughter were found, near the east Orange County residence Anthony shared with Caylee and her parents. Adams maintains that Anthony confessed to her details regarding the blanket Caylee's body was wrapped in before the press reported the information and that Anthony appeared "very scared" when the news that the search for Caylee's body had ended. This admission was one, per the report of investigators, which "only the suspect, certain law enforcement personnel and the certain medical examiner's personnel knew."

Corrections Officer Silvia Hernandez has been suspended from duty with pay while prison officials to investigate inappropriate behavior reports to determine if Adams' allegations are true. Adams alleges Hernandez allowed Adams to walk up to and talk through the glass of a window in Anthony's cell on every evening Hernandez worked. Hernandez also allowed Adams into Anthony's cell on one occasion, strictly breaking prison regulation.
