TMZ obtained a photo of Giovanni and his daughter -- as well as the girl's statement ... detailing how she and her father spent March 31.

In the statement -- given to Giovanni's attorney Chip Matthews -- the girl says they were at an aunt and uncle's home early that day ... when her dad gave her a $100 bill to go buy a drink for him at a nearby store. She says her father was napping with his girlfriend at the time.

After the pickup, the girl says she played basketball with a cousin outside the house -- and then at 2PM left with her aunt and uncle to go get another cousin from school. She says when they returned she hung out with her father and family -- at the house -- for the rest of the day.

Matthews says, if necessary, the girl will testify on her father's behalf.

The LAPD has a corrupt history. For all I know, they could have gotten a random guy and place the blame on him. There is no evidence that he did it (DNA, etc).

Why wasn't the girl in school? Sick? If she was sick, why was her "father" sending her to the store to buy him something to drink? And what IDIOT would send a 9 year old to the store?! And as everyone else says, what kid remembers what they did two months ago? Especially on some random day like Thursday. It's not like it was a special day.

When are they going to stop wasting their time and go find the real Perp? The police need to examine all points and possibilities not just one. Bryan Stow needs justice!

First of all, was she not in school on March 31? And no 9 year old knows where they were 2 months ago. And how interessting his
friends were at Opening Game, but he wasn't. And who gives their 9 year old a $100 bill to go get him a drink, and then goes to sleep with his girlfriend while he's "babysitting" his daughter. Seriously...

To answer the question as to why this child wasn't at school that day--March 31 is Cesar Chavez day, a California (state) holiday. It is a holiday for LAUSD and so she had it off. At 9, I COULD tell you what I did for a school holiday, even if it was just sitting at home watching tv with my dad. It is a plausible alibi--that he was watching his daughter because she had the day off from school, and so her mother could go to the game, which started at 5pm. I'll buy it.

So this s***bag gave his daughter a $100 bill to walk to the store.

FIRST...why is he giving his daughter thats 9 a $100 bill? a crack head would kill her for $100.

SECOND...he send her to a store and shes 9, no wonder kids are getting killed by getting hit by cars, theres not a responsible adult to watch them.

THIRD...do you expect me to belive what 9 year old remembers in THAT much detail 2 months ago?? i have a hard time remembering what i did 2 weeks ago and im 37 years old,

FOURTH....HEY IDIOT...WHY WASNT YOUR DAUGHTER IN SCHOOL ON THAT DAY?? IT WAS A WEEKEND, PEOPLE ARE FORGETTING TO ASK THAT...SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN SCHOOL, GREAT PARENT, HUH?

if they're digital photos check advanced file info and check the image for geo-tagging if taken with a camera on a cell phone,the digital image with be encoded with time/date stamp and longitude and latitude coordinates, most cell phones that have been on the market for the last few years do this.

In a way, the little chola is telling the truth...Daddy didn't step foot in the stadium. Daddy was however in the parking lot.

Here is what I think may have happened; gangbang Dad may have dropped off his crew at the stadium for the game. Over the course of the afternoon, he may have been getting texts from his homie about the effn gringo who is "disrepectin'" all of LA by wearing the wrong color.

Gangbang thug then goes to pick up the clown posse. Homie points out the offending gringo, gangbanger gets out of car to administer beat down. His former gf gets in car and drives over to them yelling at them to get in. The 10 year old is in the back of the car. Witnesses see the woman, see a child that they think is a boy ect.

No, he was not in the stadium. But he was in that parking lot.
