It’s the final breakthrough cops have been waiting for! Detectives are following a trail of blood leading from the lonely, wooded resting place of tiny Caylee Anthony – to the front door of her mother, investigators say.
The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively that the never-before-revealed evidence is so damning that prosecutors could bring back the death penalty for Casey Anthony, now awaiting trial in an Orlando jail cell.
When police executed a search warrant on Casey’s home Dec. 11, they seized her shoes – 23 pairs – and turned them over to the FBI laboratory in Quantico, Va., for analysis.
From inside Casey’s vehicle – whose trunk police say served as a hiding place for Caylee’s body for several days – investigators found even more shoes. They included a pair of black boots and a pair of black shoes – suspiciously contained in a sealed paper bag.
Officials believe the shoes Casey, 22, wore the day she disposed of her daughter’s body may contain blood and other liquids from little Caylee’s body – providing a “bloody trail” of evidence that points to her mom.
“Police are convinced the shoes could be the primary evidence that convicts Casey,” a source close to the case told The ENQUIRER.
And top medical examiners and crime investigators consulted by The ENQUIRER agree.
