6/15 – Casey and parents not getting along- Father’s Day wkd- Casey feeling extra familial pressure, fights w/mom and decides to punish her by taking Caylee and staying elsewhere.
6/16- around 1pm Caylee is last seen leaving w/Casey both have backpacks and Casey says will be home very late if at all.
-Casey comes back over when parents are at work (sometime after 2:30pm) retrieves Xanax from stash or does anyone in home have prescription?
-Casey drugs the child as she’s done before but this time gives her too much and Caylee throws up/has seizures/gets violently ill?
-Casey panics and makes flurry of phone calls trying to call mom and dad at various numbers each 6 times along w/2 calls to unknown?
-Casey can’t get in touch with anyone, doesn’t get proper help and Caylee stops breathing.
-I think she wrapped Caylee up in blankets and trash bags and put her in the trunk.
-maybe put the ladder there- thinking I’ll put her in the water and say that’s what happened- later decides against that- can’t even accept that responsibility- or worried about drugs in system.
She rationalizes it -oops accident- they really should have answered my calls! This allows her to compartmentalize and not blame herself- she just needs to get rid of the problem. She begins to spin elaborate story to explain Caylee’s disappearance. Her parents are kept at bay by aggravation story- they are used to her using this child as a pawn!!
6/17- goes to Sawgrass apts as Zanny. I think Zanny may be a recurring character that Casey invented when she drugged the child -giving her Xanax and saying she’s with Zanny the nanny so she could go out and party. People often give their drug of choice a “name” so they can talk about it safely.
-she plans to somehow open a window (on the DL) so she can return later and hide the child in the empty apt – police would think hmmm…Zanny had access to the child and this apt- Casey could say- damn that nanny!
-She may have done this before –as an empty apartment would be a “child proof” place to leave sleeping child who’s been drugged.
-something didn’t work out- unable to leave an opening or she changed her mind?
6/18- goes home, backing into the driveway and borrows the neighbors shovel.
-plans to bury the child under the playhouse but digging is tough, she’s worried about parents coming home or she just changes her mind.
-flurry of phone calls could be to parents- trying to find their whereabouts and make sure they’re not coming home?
-not sure of the timing of these calls- if they’re later she could have been trying to solicit help- trying to figure out alternative place for the body.
Was plan B to dispose of Caylee where she wouldn’t be found??- perhaps in the water and then leave her car somewhere w/purse in it and torch it? Hoping people would assume they both died and Casey could disappear with the money she’d been stealing.
–If someone runs out of gas why would they take both gas cans? One is enough to get gas until you can get to a gas station.
7/3- Cindy despairs- writing of her frustration at not seeing Caylee- blaming daughter’s betrayal and jealousy (myspace entry in timeline update post)
Finally she crosses someone who doesn’t let her get away w/it – Amy tells her mom about stolen money and where to locate Casey =BUSTED.
7/15- Cindy has been kept away from Caylee for a month and she’s had enough- calls 911.
-Casey still tries to delay- telling her mom- she’s w/the sitter I’ll take you to her in the morning.
-Mom says nope- you’ve had a month–Casey takes a deep breath and tries to spin and stick to her story.
She has obviously been able to get away w/outrageous lies before -thus leading the cops around Universal before willing to let even that one go. That’s a super confident liar.
I think police have filed just enough charges to keep her off the streets and she may be cracking. Maybe she told her attorneys not to let family come for visit bc things they say could be “dangerous” – but its really bc its getting harder to lie to parents! bc you can almost hear it in Cindy’s reassurances –“I believe Caylee is still alive bc there’s no way Casey would put us through this” – I’m sorry but I think she would and is putting everyone through this charade.
I tried to make this one short because I went on forever below but I’m slightly obsessed and just trying to put it all together!
