Significance of Duct Tape on Gas Cans in Casey Anthony Murder Trial
Significance of Duct Tape
Why is duct tape a hot topic in the Casey Anthony case? If you recall, duct tape was found with the remains of Caylee Anthony. It is believed that her murderer wrapped duct tape around the child's mouth and nose.
Did this happen before or after Caylee's death? We don't know. You might wonder why anyone would place duct tape over a child's mouth and nose after her death, but the answer is simple: To stage a kidnapping (enter Zanny the Nanny).
The duct tape has come up time and time again in the Casey Anthony murder trial. Why? Because the brand of the duct tape found on the remains of the child was also found in the home of George and Cindy Anthony.

A Larger Piece of Duct Tape?
When George Anthony took the stand, followers of this case were blown away. Jose Baez, Casey Anthony's attorney, asked George Anthony if he placed duct tape on the metal gas can that he reported missing on June 24, 2008.
Things got a little crazy from here. George Anthony admits that he placed a small piece of duct tape on the gas can to cover the vent hole (see photo above); however, he insists that he did not place the "larger piece of duct tape on the gas can." Uh, what larger piece of duct tape?
According to George Anthony (see video),this gas can was taken from his home on two occasions. The photo admitted into evidence (the photo above) was not the photo he was shown on Aug 5th of 2009. The photo he was shown had a larger piece of duct tape on the gas can. George Anthony claims he did not put the larger piece of duct tape on the gas can. He only used a small piece to cover the vent hole. So, what about the large piece of duct tape on George Anthony's gas can?
We've never seen this photo. Will it be admitted into evidence? If George Anthony didn't place the large piece of duct tape on the gas can, then who did? Is the large piece of duct tape significant to the Casey Anthony case? Does it hold fingerprints? When did it appear on the gas can?
If anyone has information/theories about this mysterious large piece of duct tape on the gas can, please post your comments below.
Is the duct tape on the gas can significant to the murder trial? Does it hold any type of evidence?
