CASEY Anthony may have put a heart shaped sticker onto her two-year-old daughter's mouth before sealing it with duct tape and FBI forensic expert testified yesterday. 
Elizabeth Fontaine told told the court that the outline was clearly visible on the tot because the glue residue had left it there. 
She said: "If you were to wear a Band Aid for an extended period of time and you remove that Band Aid, you have the glue residue outlining the surface.
"The outline of the heart resembled that…Instead of being in the shape of a Band Aid, it was in the shape of a heart." 
Prosecutors allege similar shaped stickers were found in Anthony's home by investigators and a photograph of a sheet of heart stickers found in the 25-year-old's house has been admitted as evidence.
Fontaine, a forensic examiner in the FBI’s Latent Print Unit, told the court today they were unable to find any fingerprints on the three stretches of tape, each measuring between six and eight inches long, because Caylee’s remains were in a swampy area prone to flooding.
But the heart shaped piece had shown up under a special lighting tool known as RUVIS – Reflected Ultra-Violet Imaging System.
Prosecutors expect to wrap up their evidence this Wednesday, handing the case over to the defence, when the trial continues.
