That’s how much Casey went out of her way to dispose of Caylee- the Sheriff just confirmed that the remains were found about 45-60 feet from the sidewalk. So she was close– A stones throw from her home, not far off the beaten path and in the woods where Casey liked to party when she was younger. Unfortunately I think Casey didn’t grow out of that– she didn’t grow up, she liked to party and somehow felt cheated out of her freedom by becoming a young mother. Evidently she liked to party so much and liked her freedom so much that her daughter was simply in the way.
Jose is reported to be meeting w/Casey at the jail right now! FBI at Quantico has been put on alert to analyze the remains. The Sheriff won’t confirm the bag, the lack of clothes or even the skeleton now– just confirming the skull. Reporters are speculating that the Death Penalty could be back on the table.
Mandy from Equusearch was saying that they DID search this area but much of it was underwater and covered w/heavy vegetation. She said that when they came back to search at some point there was a new chain link fence blocking access to part of the area. I haven’t heard that from anyone else but everyone else seems to be claiming at this point– yep– I was always suspicious of that area but…
It IS really close to the Anthony family home. Bill Shaeffer says that this is classic and very typical in this case– that the mother disposes of the child close to home. Bill is speculating on WFTV that the Anthony’s will probably say– no, see someone else WAS involved– Casey couldn’t have done it– that area has already been searched! I really hope they don’t do that– they should say no comment for a bit– gather themselves– seek some psychological help and then TRY to talk to their daughter.
Tim Miller is back on the phone saying that he’s willing to bet everything that he has that this is Caylee. Charlie Kelly, a neighbor, is standing in the backyard w/that WFTV reporter w/the “great vantage point” and saying that the area where the remains were found is incredibly swampy in the summer months and under up to 4 feet of water at times. Maybe the remains WILL have some forensic evidence– if the water and the bag were able to do any work preserving evidence. Hopefully there will be hair to test for chloroform. I really hope there is no head trauma– I would still like to believe it was some type of accident.
Reporters are speculating about whether or not Casey would be allowed to attend the funeral. They’re saying that it would be a security nightmare. Well that’s the understatement of the year. There have already been people at the scene – reporters called them protestors- overcome w/emotion (or all caught up in the drama) however you choose to see that.
