(Newser) – The hair found in the trunk of Casey Anthony’s car likely came from missing daughter Caylee, Fox News reports. Florida law-enforcement sources say DNA tests on hair and an unidentified stain in Anthony’s car match those samples to 3-year-old Caylee and suggest she is dead. But the results are not yet public, and other sources said the hair could have come from Casey.

Meanwhile today, the California bounty hunter who posted Anthony’s $500,000 bail in order to secure her cooperation backtracked on a threat to revoke it, without explanation. Though Leonard Padilla earlier said Casey Anthony “has not cooperated in one instance as far as finding her daughter, Caylee,” a Fox affiliate in Florida reports he has informed Anthony’s lawyer he will not revoke bail.
