(Newser) – No bombshells have surfaced in the newly released evidence in the Caylee Anthony case, but police say they are more certain than ever that Casey Anthony is guilty, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Police say they found the same type of duct tape used to cover Caylee's mouth at her mother's house. Big deal, says Casey's defense team: It's a common brand. What's more important, they say, is that police found no fingerprints on it.

Also out today is detectives' interviews with Casey's friends. They paint a picture of an unstable woman who had a strained relationship with her parents well before Caylee disappeared. Her parents even considered taking custody of the girl, the report said. Casey told friends at various times over the years that she felt "crazy" and considered entering an institution.
