As the Casey Anthony trial inches closer, a series of depositions were held Monday at the Florida State Attorney's Office.

Among those deposed were private investigator Dominic Casey, who worked for the Anthony family, and at one point Anthony's defense team.

The private eye was seen on video searching the same location where the remains of Anthony's 2-year-old daughter Caylee were eventually found in December 2008.

Dominic Casey was talking on the phone while searching the area, but who was on the other end of the phone conversation remains a mystery.

Various reports have named a psychic, Lee Anthony and Dominic Casey's daughter as possibilities.

Dominic Casey's deposition began at 2 p.m. Monday and ended three hours later. His lawyer had no comment when asked if he would testify in court during the trial.

Before the weekend, a local attorney signed onto the case late Friday to represent the private investigator.

Later this week

We may learn about a highly irregular move by the judge -- court on a Saturday. It could happen this week.
