Orlando, Fla. – Tuesday afternoon, a crime scene investigator testified at the Casey Anthony trial that heart shaped stickers were found in a box inside Casey’s bedroom.
Orange County Sheriff’s Office CSI Alina Burroughs said the same type of stickers were also found in a scrapbook and a letter addressed to Caylee Anthony.
Some of heart stickers had been used and one heart sticker was lying loose in the box filled with letters and cards.
Casey is charged with killing Caylee, her 2-year-old daughter, in the summer of 2008. The prosecution claims Casey suffocated the toddler using duct tape.
Prosecutors also allege a heart shaped sticker, consistent with those found at the Anthony home, was placed on the duct tape found with Caylee’s remains.

On Monday, Elizabeth Fontaine, a physical scientist and forensic examiner, testified she saw residue on the duct tape in the shape of heart, as if a heart shaped sticker had been on the tape at one time. Nonetheless, she failed to capture an image of the residue.

Casey’s defense team has argued the sticker on the duct tape never existed.
Under cross-examination, defense attorney Jose Baez addressed Burroughs regarding the envelope where the loose heart sticker was lying.
“Obviously this is a very old letter,” he said.
He also argued that the box containing the heart shaped stickers also contained star stickers, stickers of Disney characters and items from Caylee’s baby shower.
