Casey is scheduled to be tried for Caylee’s death in May 2011

Florida news outlet  WESH spoke with Neal Haskell, a forensic entomologist, who will testify for the prosecution in the Casey Anthony case.

Casey is charged with the first-degree murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony in the summer of 2008.

Reporter Bob Kealing spoke to Haskell who said coffin flies were feeding on decomposition in the trunk of Casey’s car, where Haskell determined the odor of death was present.

The expert noted that the foul smell is unmistakable and estimated Caylee’s body was dumped in the wooded area near the Anthony family home in late June to early July, 2008, prior to Casey’s arrest. Haskell’s hypothesis could be the undoing of the defense theory that Caylee was dumped in the area — by someone other than Casey — in October after Casey was behind bars.

Haskell told Kealing, “We have a whole array of insects that come in at different times of that decompositional progression… Insects don’t lie.”
