Although accused fetal murderer and former Miami restaurateur Joshua Woodward was unable to get a discount on his bail because the judge deemed him a flight risk, he did post bond (typically 10 percent) on the $4 million needed to get him out — for now. Prosecutors claim he pulled a Casey Anthony, searching the Internet for sinister ways to end his girlfriend’s pregnancy. His attorneys cry BS. Woodward, often seen lounging at Miami Beach’s members-only Soho Beach House, was most recently seen in a blue prison jumpsuit before the bond was posted. No word on his whereabouts or those of Ocean Drive editor and newlywed Suzy Buckley , who, despite ending her relationship with Woodward after his first arrest back in 2009, ended up marrying him legally in Miami in August.
