Statement by Texas EquuSearch Regarding Dismissed Juror in Casey Anthony Trial

05/11/11 – It has come to the attention of Texas EquuSearch that the jury panel in the Casey Anthony case was dismissed yesterday due to comments made by a potential juror to the jury pool. This person was later identified as Patricia Young, and has been referred to as an “employee” and/or “member” of Texas EquuSearch in the media.  Ms. Young is not currently, and never has been, a member of Texas EquuSearch. Additionally, we do not have employees – we are strictly a volunteer organization. She was simply one of approximately 4,000 civilian volunteers who showed up to search for Caylee Anthony in an effort led by Texas EquuSearch.  This comment is made for clarification purposes.  Thank you so much.
