(Newser) – Prosecutors in the Casey Anthony case released a flurry of documents today, including a three-dimensional animated movie of the area where her daughter’s body was found, crime scene photos, and a 1,100-page report by investigators, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Among the revelations: No blood was found in the trunk of Anthony’s car, where prosecutors believe she stored daughter Caylee’s body.

“I am in the middle of a high profile Homicide Investigation where the victim, age 3, may have been placed in the trunk of a vehicle long enough where the odor of death/decomp is present,” an investigator wrote to a forensic-chemicals company. “I did use bluestar [a blood detector] in the trunk to detect any blood, which was negative.”
