That Smell

Ooooh that smell
Can’t you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you

– Lynyrd Skynyrd from “That Smell”

On June 27, 2008, Casey Anthony contacted her close friend, Amy Huizenga, about a smell emanating from her car. The message was clear, and it was confirmed during Amy’s deposition taken on February 14 of this year. Jose Baez asked her about it starting on page 32:

Q: Okay. Now, she sent you a text message in reference to the smell of the car; is that correct?

A: Yes.

Q: Okay. And that was on what date, do you recall?

A: I think it’s in here somewhere. I don’t know what day it was.

Q: I can help you if you want to look towards the date for your statement to confirm it.

A. That would be great.

Q: Okay. The 27th. June 27th.
