Casey Anthony's New Witness Vasco Thompson

Mystery Witness Called - Claimed To Have Made Calls To George Anthony

A late addition to the defense witness list in the Casey Anthony murder trial in Orlando, Florida is convicted kidnapper Vasco Dagama Thompson (photo left). 

Thompson reportedly made four calls to George Anthony, father of Casey on July 14, 2008.

George Anthony's attorney, Mark Lippman, put out a press release Wednesday denying Mr. Anthony ever knew or talked with Thompson.

The convicted felon served time at the Marion Correction Institution after a 17-year sentence resulting from an Orlando area kidnapping committed in July, 1987. 

According to the Florida Department of Corrections, Thompson, now 52 years old, was released from prison in November, 2004 and then lived in Jacksonville.

Update: Thompson held a news conference June 17 saying he doesn't know George Anthony or never called him. He said he didn't have the phone number claimed by Jose Baez' defense attorneys to call Anthony in July, 2008, but got the phone later in January 2009.
