This was proven by the locations of the pings given by cell towers. On Adnan’s part, both I and the reporter found his actions of not contacting Hae after she disappeared highly suspicious. I began to question Adnan’s integrity after I heard this. From jail, Adnan references a possible third party when he makes an odd call to someone at Kathy’s home. I wonder why the police never went the extra mile to figure out where that call came from.

The remains of Caylee Anthony were found 31 days after she was reported missing but after seeing what shape the body was in forensic scientists said the body may have been there for as long as 6 months. The body was so decomposed by the time it was found they could not determine a cause of death but they did rule it a homicide.
