That jury got the hell out of town before the sun went down on the travesty they committed in court yesterday. No justice for Caylee– we are done w/this case and the sequestration and we can’t be bothered to explain.
So thanks to that idiotic jury Casey finally gets everything she ever wanted. She’s rid of Caylee for good, she’s free, she got to severely punish her mean, overbearing parents and BONUS she gets to sell Caylee and the “story” of what happened to her for lots of money. It’s almost hard to believe the level of destruction that the spiteful bitch has brought down upon everyone around her.
I hope the name Casey Anthony will become synonymous w/FUBAR. When something is Fu*ked Up Beyond All Recognition- you can call it Casey Anthony. Did you see that 40 car pileup on the freeway? It was like Casey Anthony bad!!! She IS the human AK-47: The very worst. When you absolutely, positively have to kill everyone in the room. Accept no substitutes.
She completely laid waste to her entire family and then she had Roy Kronk for dessert. Amy Huizenga, Tony Lazzaro, Jesse Grund, Zenaida Gonzales and anyone else who had their private lives eviscerated for the world to see- they were just the appetizers.
I hope like hell that everyone forces her to deal w/that reality she created. That abuse after all, is her excuse for what happened to Caylee. I don’t think the Anthonys should be allowed to ignore what she said to all of the world about her father and brother. If she goes to live in that home and George stays there it will be clear to everyone that she killed Caylee. She can’t just stick to the accident story now and forget the rest bc the world is not quite as dysfunctional as this family or that jury. We remember what you said Casey about that penis in your mouth when you were a child. The Anthonys may wish to ignore what happened but I don’t think they should be allowed to either. It would dishonor Caylee to do so. Everyone that interviews them should make that one of their main focuses. Caylee ended up triple bagged in the swamp because of the incest and sexual abuse that Casey supposedly suffered. If she was lying -surprise, surprise- about that, then there would be absolutely NO REASON that Caylee’s drowning didn’t warrant a call for help.
George and Cindy have issued a statement calling her defense baseless but the verdict fair. So they admit that she’s lying about what happened but think she shouldn’t be held accountable for anything. Shocking huh? Somehow that doesn’t surprise me but I do disagree. This jury brought shame upon themselves, the State of Florida and our jury system. Caylee was worth more than that. She deserved more than just 10 hours of deliberation and I’m sick and frick’n tired of people saying they did a good job w/what they had.
Russell Huekler, and alternate juror is doing the media rounds now saying he thinks it’s safe to say that something horrific happened to that little girl. Well thank you captain obvious. Aside from her death the most horrific thing that happened to that little girl is what the jury did when they cleared her mother of any responsibility. If she drowned, Casey should have been watching her. If she drowned Casey should have called 911. If she drowned Casey should have reported the death. If she drowned, she deserved a proper burial.
How do they explain the smell from Casey’s trunk? How do they explain the chloroform? How do they think Caylee got to the swamp? Caylee’s corpse didn’t get duct taped and triple bagged all by itself. If they speak out w/suspicion about George’s possible culpability their complete and total ignorance will be confirmed.
George was devastated to lose Caylee. Losing Caylee set Casey free. Never in her entire life had she been able to be out of her parent’s house and have such freedom for 31 days. Now the hideous murderer will have what she sees as a bella vita. I don’t think anyone in that family has a job so I’m sure the rush to profit from Caylee’s death will be swift and voracious.
I wish I knew Judge Belvin Perry’s email so that I could email him w/some requests. Since she is a convicted felon she should serve the maximum allowed for lying to the police. She should also be charged w/contempt for speaking so much (under her breath) during the trial and especially during the closing arguments. The guy who flipped the bird got 6 days and it will be an injustice if Casey gets away w/that.
I’m just so sad and so mad I could spit. Which reminds me- I read somewhere that Casey will probably be called a murderer wherever she goes and will always have to wonder if someone spit in her food bc of it. I kinda hope that’s true but I feel bad about it and mad at her for making me feel that way! GRRRR!
Even if you believe the ridiculous story spun so smugly by Jose that it was an accident, she still killed her because she didn’t call 911! She didn’t give Caylee a chance to survive her neglect. No matter how long she was in the pool a good mom would have called for help- so many drowning victims can be resuscitated. An amazing mom would have been watching her daughter in the first place but a good mom would have at least given her a chance. And then to supposedly just turn away and let George triple bag her like a family pet and toss her in the swamp?! That’s BS, that’s not a good mom, that’s a monster and it should be CRIMINAL!
So even if you buy the fantastical fiction put forth from Jose– EVEN IF you buy that- she still did nothing to help her daughter and she’s guilty of that much at the very least.
By the way IF you believe Casey’s story then we should be expecting a statement from her soon much to this effect…
Chloroform Casey issues an apologetic statement to the media:
I want to absolutely offer my sincerest apology to everyone who has invested their time and concern on this case. To prove what an amazing mother I am I want to dedicate my life to speaking out against the type of incest and sexual abuse I endured from my father and brother growing up. Because of their despicable and horrific acts against me as a child I was unable to help my daughter and call 911 when she drowned and then I was unable to deal with reality and the aftermath. I am asking the Orange County Sheriff’s Office to seek charges against my dad for triple bagging Caylee and tossing her away like trash in the swamp/pet cemetery. I also apologize to all the searchers. ANY money that I make for talking about Caylee will go to TexasEquusearch and The Klass Foundation for missing children.
George and Lee will have no choice but to make a healthy break from her and to speak out about everything they know. The truth will be revealed and everyone will know that she is Caylee’s killer any which way that you look at it. I believe the State of FL proved it’s case and the jury didn’t understand REASONABLE doubt–these ARE Florida voters after all. But again…even if it was an accident and she didn’t call for help and give her a chance– shouldn’t she be charged w/that??
The truth is that she killed her and the State proved it. Caylee ceased to exist while in the care of her mother and the jury got the verdict wrong. I’m sick of people saying we have to respect this jury’s decision. I don’t have to. They made a terrible mistake that they will no doubt profit from now and regret later. What they did is completely disrespectful to Caylee. Caylee didn’t deserve to be disposed of that way. Casey threw that baby in the swamp and I bet the jurors will admit they know that and voted not guilty bc the state didn’t have (it on tape) the right evidence.
Just make sure the body completely skeletonizes before you report the person missing and then lie to the police and voila- you can get smooth away from a murder charge in FL. This Pinellas County jury just completely ignored the SCIENCE! Were they all scientologists or creationists??! They should be ashamed.
Apparently Casey was truly judged by a jury of her peers– those of a truly tiny intelligence. I’m curious to know what they did discuss in the very few hours they decided to devote to Caylee. It certainly wasn’t the evidence. I think they focused on the mystery and what can never be known about what happened bc this wasn’t written or filmed for TV. Real life is messier than that and you have to take the time to consider all the circumstances in which Caylee ceased to exist. I bet someone took notes and recreated that chart that Cheney Mason had in closing. I got worried when I saw that bc it made beyond reasonable doubt sound unattainable. I would like to see that chart again bc I bet you money it played a role. Someone fell for that, threw reason out the window and convinced everyone that the evidence didn’t rise to the level for conviction. Plus they were pissed they had to miss the 4th of July, were sick of Orange County and this case and wanted to move on. You have to almost completely ignore the evidence to do what they did and evidently that’s what they did bc there’s NO WAY they could have given proper attn to the over 300 pieces of evidence the State so carefully presented. Linda Drane Burdick and Jeff Ashton worked tirelessly and were excellent advocates for Caylee in death.
Sadly Caylee had only the Anthony’s looking out for her in life. It’s sad that Caylee didn’t have friends that missed her those 31 days. It’s sad that Caylee didn’t have a job that would have alerted someone when she didn’t show up. It’s sad that Caylee didn’t have a car that someone could have reported abandoned. It’s sad that Caylee didn’t have a phone where someone could have reached out to her. Caylee didn’t get the chance to have any of those things because she had to rely on her mother for care and her mother couldn’t have cared less about her. Casey is the one who got all the chances. Casey got treated w/kid gloves and ruled that house so she had no incentive to face reality. In the end I guess the Anthony’s got what they wanted all along– leave us alone, it’s none of your business!! Caylee belonged to us- move along please. This is how we get rid of our family pets.
Casey saw Caylee as the noose around her neck tethering her to her overbearing mother. Casey’s friends were going to college and getting their first taste of freedom from parental control. Not Casey. Because of Caylee, Casey got put on complete lock down -Cindy style! She also got kicked way down the totem pole and was jealous of all the love and attention Caylee got. Cindy and George loved that baby beyond all measure and failed to see the jealous monster they were creating in their midst. Casey NEVER wanted Caylee and I think that had Cindy’s brother not been rude enough to interject some reality at that wedding- “hey Casey’s prego!” then Casey would have been one of those teens that have the baby in the rest room and end it all right there in the stall. Time for the hot body contest!
Cindy wanted sooo badly to prove to the world that she was a great mother but appearances were what really mattered to her. She mentioned what a good mother she was many times in her police interviews even while cataloging all the lies her daughter spewed. In order for Cindy to be a great mother, it had to appear that Casey was a good mother, thus she was HIGHLY motivated to believe the lies that Casey told her. A good mom would have noticed their pregnant daughter and a good mom would have gotten prenatal care but those are inconvenient truths. Casey didn’t want to be pregnant, pretended not to be and she walked down that hallway until she reached the very end and had no choice but to confess. Keeping up appearances Cindy moved quickly past that weirdness and got really excited about a grand daughter– a second chance! They spared no expense for Caylee and I’m sure Casey resented every penny. Money that might have gone for Casey’s college and a shot at freedom was yanked and spent on the snot nosed brat (Casey’s words) that ruined all of her escape plans.
George even talked about how Casey had stolen money he was saving for Caylee. Poor George has been neutered in that house for a very long time. Cindy keeps it in a jar and I don’t believe for one second that George did anything to Casey under her watchful eye. You can tell from his pathetic suicide note that there’s a mantra that’s been drummed into his head that he’s a failure. Cindy has said to him many times, the derogatory things he said about himself in that suicide note. And Cindy made George the villain in Casey’s eyes many times. She made it okay to throw George under the bus like that. Don’t be negative George, of course Casey is telling the truth. Be a dad not a cop! How dare you go bust her for her fake Sports Authority job! How dare you try to follow her down the highway! Now Princess Casey will move back in and George will have to hit the bricks. Casey used to have Caylee to hold over her parents head to get whatever she wanted. She’s killed Caylee but she will still be using her as her precious pawn but it’ll be Caylee’s corpse that she profits from now.
The media better put a stalk on that tattoo shop Casey loves– stat! Remember, she missed her appointment when she got arrested on a fu*king whim?! You know Casey is going to have to get something inked over this horrific ordeal her parents have put her through. If they hadn’t tracked her down at Tony’s, if they hadn’t called the cops that night, if they hadn’t said they smelled death, if they hadn’t visited her in jail, if they had just believed her latest lie. This was a super inconvenient time for them to mess w/the fantasy and you can be certain that Casey will never stop making them pay for that.
My deepest hope and wish that I’m sending out into the universe is for someone to give Casey a tattoo on her other shoulder that says “Hideous Murderer” in Italian. Just have a really hot guy offer to do it for free and tell Casey it says something else! She’s not nearly as bright as people think she is. Tell her it means some bullshit about justice bc that is what it would mean to me, even if only in the teensiest degree. I think that jury and the Anthony’s will come to regret turning their backs on the obvious stench of what Casey did to Caylee! Here’s a petition to stop Casey from monetizing Caylee’s corpse: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/noprofitforcaseyanthony
Jose keeps saying that AT TRIAL it will ALL be revealed as to WHY Casey Danced her Ass, ASS off while her little girl was “missing” !!!???!!! This is interesting bc I CANNOT see how he’s NOT setting himself up for a fall, for- an armada of police cars to deal w/your client if you will. I’m pretty sure this is a path that he should NOT stumble down. You are writing a check that your skills, the facts, no one in their right mind woulda coulda shoulda cash, Jose. BIG mistake, colossal, HUGE. IMO. Now I’ve been TRYING to be nice to Jose ever since he got his panties in a wad over a previous post but COME ON JOSE, pls don’t make it so difficult. We don’t want to, as the court doesn’t want to…”tee off on her.” However…
First of all, how are you going to establish the story w/out putting your girl on the stand? OOPS. Secondly, any reason you could possibly fathom will not be able to accommodate ALL of the juvenile, thoughtless, slutty, criminal, loathsome, abhorrent and completely asinine things your client has done. Thirdly, WHY in the hell haven’t you released a sketch of the nanny or the “perp”- WHO took that baby and killed her??? IF you truly believe your client didn’t do it- then you should be OBSESSED w/finding out WHO DID IT??D!!!@#$%^ Hey, how about putting out a SKETCH of the perp? I’m just saying.
But I AM actually FASCINATED by the idea of your story. Let’s all just take a moment or two and really stretch our imaginations. I will give a brand new copy of the Diane Fanning book on Caylee – to the best scenario. I accidentally bought two. Well, I pre-ordered one from Amazon and then they shanked me and didn’t get it to me in a timely manner. I was leaving the country so I was FORCED to buy another one at the airport. It’s not impressive IMO- anyone could have written it- it seems to be almost entirely transcripts of intvs- which most of us (obsess much?) have read and there are many typos (which believe it or not is a major pet peeve of mine). Granted there are many here- but this is a vastly different medium. I am mostly RANTING here and using things like OMG and IMO. IF I were to publish- I would make good and gosh darn sure that I didn’t have any typos AND BONUS –I would NEVER use the word MACADAM. That’s a promise! Has anyone else noticed how that word is popping up w/MUCH too much regularity? I’m pretty sure Diane Fanning used it, Dean Koontz can’t get enough of it and I was recently subjected to it thanks to Robin Cook, Ann Rule and Dominick Dunne. For some reason it annoys the crap out of me. Just say pavement- we ALL have access to a thesaurus – color me unimpressed. It makes me want to POUND my head into the MACADAM!! BTW- did you see that hilarious toss that Jon Stewart and Colbert did the other day– about the thesaurus?? Too funny- I will look for a link.
Now back to the compelling reasons to party like a rock star. I am not here to suggest that there are NO reasons to party like a rock star. I myself have stumbled across MANY: freshman in college, first credit card, first Grateful Dead/Rolling Stones/Van Halen concert, first time in Amsterdam, best friend’s wedding, open bar… you get the idea. There are a PLETHORA of good reasons to engage in such activity. HOWEVER, if my daughter, or hell, even my DOG were missing I would need something happening on a sort of Tony Soprano scale with CONSTANT reinforcement to make me get my groove on and do NOTHING for a month.
Sorry Jose but we’re just going to have to apply the “we’re not quite as stupid as you (think we are)” line of reasoning here. What could POSSIBLY be the reason that would compel YOU to go out to bars, recruiting everyone you know (through facebook, myspace and text msgs) to join you in the party, the all white party, the anything but clothes party the hot body contest and the plain old dancing on stage w/a girl for the cameras at the club party, all the while – you NEVER use your phone or computer to research WHO took your daughter, you never create a file- try to look up Zanny or her roommates, of course you never call the police or tell your parents, friends, ANYONE who actually exists. You go about your life as if nothing is amiss, you ONLY speak of Caylee when asked and when prompted come up w/DETAILED agendas of who she’s with and where. The person you sleep with…the one you live with and say I love you to- you NEVER mention any of this to him and are able to completely snow him?!
OK, so let’s think about a scenario. I don’t work so perhaps I’m engaged in something nefarious. Which I’ve suspected but wouldn’t that have come out? I’ve seen ONE picture that looks like Casey engaged in porno/paris hilton type behavior. IF she was doing that…then where was the money? Is THAT how she’s paying Jose? IF they prosecutor’s know this- wouldn’t we know it by now????
Anyway- that’s one scenario that I can fathom- IF I dial my brain down to almost stupid. Let’s suppose…I’ve been engaged in something like this- and the people I work for are SHADY. Something I’ve done has pissed them off. They take my daughter in order to convince me to rectify the error. Well, if my character was appropriately shady, I think I MIGHT think– OK, I don’t want my secret to come out, I will do what they say and I will get my daughter back w/out anyone finding out I’m a dirtball. Problem here is- would that take me a MONTH before I re- PRIORITIZED as to my daughter’s life?? NO!! I would comply immediately and if unsuccessful- get SOMEONE involved. Considering my incredible capacity for lying- I might try to turn the tables on them and get police involved w/out them knowing. Which is what MOST RATIONAL PEOPLE do when something horrific happens and they are warned against getting police involved.
Does anyone remember the intv when George was shown pictures or something that detectives warned him about, then apologized for and which George then had to leave the room for and vomit? Something very upsetting— I’m sure I’m getting the details wrong. WHAT was that?
IF Casey was making money this way– as in some sex trade job– I wouldn’t be surprised. Jane on ISSUES HLN had Jose on the other day and he said that the money question as to HOW he’s getting paid was CONFIDENTIAL. No SHIT, Sherlock, we KNOW that you plan to make your NAME from this case. That kind of publicity can be priceless. BUT I’m still curious about Casey’s story about hearing about Jose– she tells Lee that she heard about him from a fellow “inmate” in booking, and then w/out prompting (she likes to bolster her lies) she says something like yeah but not only that inmate recommended him but others in the line did too. As if to say…. OHHHH, so all of these people who are sitting in jail- they have someone they recommend. That’s like accepting – Mrs. Nussbaum’s credit card bc….As long as we have a VOUCHER. ANYWAY, that doesn’t really matter BUT what would surprise me would be her actually having money bc WHERE is the MONEY??? Would she risk blowing her cover SOOOO many times by stealing money from Caylee’s bank, asking folks for money etc. when her DAD is a former COP who has ALREADY demonstrated suspicion as to her employment. Granted, maybe the POINT was she was building a nest egg in order to disappear to CALI once she had killed Caylee. But you would think, (which may be a mistake- DON’T THINK- YOU’RE CASEY) that she would care enough to keep her parents (especially dad) off her back so that the EXIT plan would seem smooth. HMMM.
Anyway, WHAT could POSSIBLY be the scenario? The COMPELLING reason Casey NEVER reported her daughter missing and acted like she didn’t give a damn that she was gone???!@#$
So, I didn’t find out about this contest in time to read through these old posts and find the best one. But ranting about Casey Anthony reminded me how much I love to write and I do want to claim that title, writer so desperately that I’m willing to enter this barely cleaned up text with all-caps, bolding and ranting just so that I can enter http://youareawriter.com !! I hope I will find it motivating to revive this blog and write more often- it will pain me to put this out there without updating with something that actually moves beyond a drafty ramble. This was originally published on 10/30/09.
I’m still TRYING to give them the benefit of the doubt at least as to their knowledge and actions prior to July 15. But it seems like most of what I read on the interwebs and blogospheres does not seem to reinforce the feeling. I’m surprised though, at the number of people who believe that Cindy and/or George were involved in Caylee’s death or at least had guilty knowledge of it. Let’s just say there are many spots available in the Anthony fan club— lots and lots of them. But I wonder if most people really think they have guilty knowledge or they are just trying not to harm Casey any further now? They recently went on a Caribbean cruise, supposedly w/some of the $20,000 CBS (48 Hours) is paying them for their appearance or for licensing the photos and videos of Caylee. Which is common practice and frankly not that much money for this kind of case but would you go on a Caribbean cruise right now?
I’m not sure they really thought that through (surprise). I mean, everyone needs a break- but if I were of limited means, desperately searching for my grandaughter and thought that someone named Zenaida might have her in Puerto Rico…as they say…I think I might book a $204 flight to Puerto Rico rather than a cruise. Even though the prices seem to be about the same. Of course, on the cruise your room is included but in Puerto Rico they could just stay w/Ricardo’s family so…yeah, that might actually work out bc the way they talk about Ricardo they would surely need to look into his peeps over there–it’s perfect.
Honestly, I don’t really think it’s that terrible that they did that- took a vacation. But seriously, WHO THE HELL is advising them? How about at least waiting a bit. WHY must you do it when you KNOW you just brought the national spotlight on you again? How about wait a couple of weeks, a month? They thank the media for the vacation– telling the camera person– thanks you paid for this but then in the very next breath say- thanks a lot you just RUINED our vacation! Gee, the vacation was great until we docked and got to the pkg lot- it really went downhill from there.
Anyway, I almost want to call the Anthony’s up and offer to help them PR wise. They seem quite clueless or else they ceased to care. They should care though- they are NOT doing themselves or their daughter any favors. They seem to have ABSOLUTELY no concept of how one thing that comes out of your mouth should usually agree w/the next or at least have some relation to it. The way they think and operate should truly be studied. But I digress.
I think it’s OBVIOUS how much they loved Caylee and my heart goes out to them for their tragic loss- it is clear they were DEVASTATED. Casey…not so much. The only times that I can remember her crying were when she found out she wouldn’t get out on bond, when her dad said “hey gorgeous” in a jail visitation and when she and Jose gave a press conference as she was about to turn herself in to go back to jail and he blathered on about what an amazing mom she was and how hard this ordeal has been for her after people actually started looking for Caylee. In those jail visitations it’s ALL about Casey. She never once brings up trying to find Caylee and BARELY tolerates questions on the matter. Her parents tip toe around things so much it’s painful to watch.
Nobody gets a handbook on how to react in that situation. Strangely I think that part of their Caylee “foundation” includes plans to offer advice to people who find themselves in that situation–Wow. I’d be curious to know what their guidance would be because they have behaved quite BIZARRELY at times- not exactly a road map for success in the public eye.
Have you read those depositions taken by the state?? I do think the whole family is in MASSIVE cover up mode at this point and have been for quite some time. So much so, that they aren’t making much sense but again, they just don’t seem to realize it or care. But are they covering up some inside knowledge or just trying to save their daughter?
ALL 3 of them profess to believe that Caylee MAY still be alive!! My jaw is still sore from the fall on that one. I guess at some point I should cease to be surprised but they sure keep the hits coming! Apparently no one who ever crossed paths with Caylee is safe…
They think Jesse’s mom was that tip from Wanda at the Orlando airport. She flew Caylee to Atlanta and that’s where the other tip of someone matching Jesse and his truck were “seen.” Which explains why Jesse “high tailed” it out of O-town (to Athens, GA) so fast after Caylee disappeared. But, in case that’s not true they are also “hot on the trail” of some poor lady named Zenaida in Puerto Rico and they said that Ricardo is gay or bisexual and he and Amy are heavily involved in heroin use. I feel soo sorry for anyone that ever tried to befriend Casey.
I know many people think that the Anthony’s were involved somehow early on or at least knew about it and just pretended to search for Caylee all that time knowing she was dead. I just find that so hard to believe or else I just want so badly not to believe it. What did they know and when did they know it? I think they thought she might be alive or were desperately clinging to that right up until December 11th. However…
One thing I really want to figure out is–what is the deal w/Dominic Casey going to those woods in November where little Caylee was found twice or was it three times? There is something super fishy about that. I wasn’t following the case as closely at times so I think I missed a lot when all of that was coming out. But what I’ve read and seen so far bothers me. I cannot figure that one out. I just watched George’s depo in the civil suit and his reaction to this line of questioning seemed a bit strange to me as well. His attitude almost takes a 180 from the entire rest of the depo. The questioning starts in the last half of the second part. From the beginning of the interview until about this part George is hostile and unbelievably arrogant. He wants so badly to show this by looking down his nose at John Morgan. Unfortunately, he can’t because he’s not so tall and it almost looks like he’s leaning back to take care of a nose bleed. Something about the faces he makes here remind me of the Grinch. And I don’t mean that in a derogatory way, George, because I happen to love Dr. Suess. I’m just saying. Your face is very expressive. Jim Carrey makes a lot of money that way.
I think Casey has probably threatened them with taking Caylee away anytime she didn’t get her way. She could see (through her jealous rage) how powerful Caylee was as a threat and she held that to their heads like a .357.
In that first phone call home from jail- the first time the police have a chance to help find Caylee- ALL she wants is Tony’s phone number. She rants angrily about the police– They’ve already said they’re going to pin this on me if they DON’T find Caylee!!– like THAT is the worst thing about them NOT FINDING YOUR DAUGHTER?!@!@#$%??
She also whines in that first call (2:10)- They just want Caylee back. That’s all they’re worried about right now is getting Caylee back!! Ooops, she tries to recover and say that’s all she’s worried about too…but FIRST… GIVE ME TONY’S NUMBER RIGHT NOW! You people can look for my daughter later but I NEED TO TALK TO MY F’IN BOYFRIEND!
Whenever she did leave on June 16 I think Cindy was worried, increasingly desperate and probably taking it out on George. Saying– You drove her away! You were always acting like a detective, checking up on her. You busted her at Sports Authority, you chased her down the highway– this is all YOUR fault. I blame YOU for not having my Caylee! I think George has been almost completely neutered (Cindy keeps those in a jar). He gets them back at certain times because he acknowledged the smell and warned one of the cops that night that his daughter might be lying. But speaking of that smell… WHY didn’t the many cops that were in and out of the house that night smell the trunk? A smell that distinct, immediately recognizable and permeating that car?? How thorough of a cleaning job did Cindy do on that car? Was the Febreze she sprayed everywhere powerful enough to have covered it? Seems doubtful.
Anyway, I think she blamed George and threatened him even more ‘after the crime’ and has now cracked the whip and circled the wagons. Now the only thing in their minds (Cindy, George and Lee) is SAVING CASEY. And sadly that doesn’t leave any room for reality, reason, civility or consistency- let alone JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE. Cindy says in that 48 Hours episode that justice for Caylee is what’s most important and that that will bring justice for Casey– the truth will set Casey free. I think they’ve treated truth so poorly it might not get a chance to stand up for Caylee anymore.
Steven Soderbergh will direct a play about Casey called “Tot Mom” -WTF??
The play, will be on stage in Australia from December 18 to January 31. Staging down under evidently prevents having to compensate anyone for source material. The play will use excerpts from transcripts of Nancy Grace’s show, court documents and police reports.
Essie Davis will play Nancy Grace and I think Genevieve Hegney will play Casey, both are Aussie actresses.
This is just bizarre. I wonder what prompted him to do this? It’s exceedingly strange but I do love Soderbergh and have always wanted to go to Australia. This case just gets weirder and weirder.
Questions? Comments? Thoughts? Concerns?
On its Web site, the company notes that the case has baffled investigators and poses the questions “Why was Caylee’s disappearance not reported to police for over a month? When was the child last seen? What was the strange smell in the boot(hee hee boot) of Casey Anthony’s car? Who and where was the alleged babysitter?”
I think Soderbergh is so talented and I just find it puzzling that he’s obsessed enough w/this case that he’s taken time out of his busy schedule to WRITE a play about CASEY. Maybe he really is trying to end his career as this article suggests. In that article he said:
“In terms of my career, I can see the end of it,” he says. “I’ve had that sensation for a few years now. And so I’ve got a list of stuff that I want to do – that I hope I can do – and once that’s all finished I may just disappear.”
Aren’t you just kind of waiting to Ashton Kutcher or Jamie Kennedy to come out? I feel PUNKED. And my jaw is sore once again.
Larry starts w/–Why do you need an attny? George says–He’s a great confidant, and helps us focus. So you have to pay for friends? Brad pipes up that there were rumors of an obstruction of justice charge. Yeah, we’re still waiting.
Larry says he’s amazed by the thousands of responses on the blogs– um, he’s not astounded– that’s why he has the Anthony’s on there.
Cindy says- they’ve never been in our shoes, people are picking apart that we are supporting our daughter, and trying to make a good buck thing out of Caylee’s tragedy. George says he’s been a positive role model for other families going through this. Oh so deluded. I would LMAO if it weren’t so pathetic. OK, watch how they’ve handled it and behave in the exact opposite manner. What would that be an anti-role model?
Any sensible person would stand behind their daughter no matter what? Um, you’re NOT standing behind her you are standing in front of her and trying to block justice for Caylee! Get behind her and accept that she did it– that’s what a sensible person w/a good thought in their head would do.
George says they didn’t realize it was Caylee until 9-10 days after the remains were found and then, they were surprised. Hmm, your daughter seemed to realize it right away– I guess she remembered where she threw her daughter away.
Cindy says she hasn’t spoken to Casey bc visits will become public. Larry asks Brad – he says he thinks they should visit- he doesn’t see a down side. WTF? Have you mentioned that to your clients?
Cindy says they do communicate through letters. Larry says why not ask your daughter what’s going on?…George gives a nonsense answer. WHO CARES if it’s monitored– if she’s not involved what could be the harm? Cindy says Casey can do no right, if they go in there and see her, it can only harm her. Cindy says, look at us, we haven’t done anything and… WHAT PLANET IS SHE ON? Does she know that her depo was taped and we SAW it- does she know that she washed those pants after smelling decomp in the car? Does she realize that it insults our intelligence when she continues to try and paint Casey as a saint? Just acknowledge her faults, admit there were mistakes and let a little reality shine in– it tends to plug up the crazy that is leaking out all over the place sweetheart.
Brad admits that the State Attny’s office has been above board but then seems to complain about them releasing docs–um sunshine law much?
Brad is disputing that the duct tape was wrapped around the skull- idiotic. Was it just a necklace that Casey fashioned? A headband? Larry says he would support his child but he would be wondering? – asks George- George says he doesn’t want to believe that Casey could do it– Cindy is going to tear him a new one for this answer– he should have just answered emphatically NO- I would never believe Casey could do it. He’s off the script. Balls in a jar.
Cindy says she’s not convinced the body was where it was found back in August. Gee I wonder if that will be the defense strategy? Brad says that Casey’s reaction the day the remains were found – is being misinterpreted. Nice try.
Cindy doesn’t understand why the bloggers hate her when many thousands of mothers and Gmas support her. PLEASE email me Cindy- I will help you understand where we’re coming from. She has no love for the “bloggers” – she might just as well have called us “poka players” – ugh. She feels sad for us, we just look for faults in people (we’re pick aparters). That enrages me. What is her email? I would like to send her my questions. Yea! Larry asks if they are looking for the killer. Cindy says that there are investigators (wkg for them and some for the defense) who are still looking for the killer, but they are leaving them to their job. It’s a double, double, top secret operation- this looking for the killer. Mums the word about Zanny. Maybe Jose hasn’t decided which of Casey’s fantastical tales he’s going to try to spin in court. Eenie meanie miney moe- blame the nanny or blame Joe Blow? Cindy says their focus is making something good come out of Caylee’s tragedy. Wouldn’t JUSTICE for CAYLEE be something good to come from this tragedy?? WHO DID YOUR DAUGHTER TELL YOU TOOK CAYLEE??—let us help you find that person– to NOT be doing that while you claim to believe your daughter MAKES YOU LOOK TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY ASININE!! Note to Cindy: We’re not as think as you dumb we are.
He reads some emails- why can’t they help children w/out being in the public eye? Good one. Larry asks could they be blinded by the fact that Casey is their daughter? DEAF, DUMB and BLINDED!! Cindy says that she watched Casey be a great mother for 3 years and that NO ONE has come forward to say differently. BULLSH!T! The neighbors did, she called Caylee a snothead, and I believe the police report called her a bad mother for NOT REPORTING HER DAUGHTER MISSING FOR A MONTH!!!!! They ALL talked about how you would call Casey and make her come home when she was out– Caylee was clearly cramping Casey’s style. And weren’t YOU thinking about going for custody Cindy?
Good one Larry, he asks…shouldn’t all this prime time here be focused on the investigation- looking for the killer?? To which Cindy replies, w/that favorite Anthony word…Absolutely, Absolutely…BUT…she says she’s letting them do their job (I won’t help them here by showing a sketch of Zanny and begging your millions of viewers to look for her). She says she doesn’t know where to start w/this…that’s their job. WTF do you mean you don’t know where to start? I would start w/WHO TOOK CAYLEE FROM CASEY???!!! Let’s start there just for fun. It’s YOUR JOB to stand up for Caylee and find the TRUTH- no matter where it leads. That’s ABSOLUTELY what’s most important. GRR.
The poor Anthony’s are between a rock and a hard place – says Brad, he says it helps people when they share their grief publicly. How thoughtful of them. IT HELPS ME GET MY RAGE ON!! Thanks.
Larry calls this a Greek tragedy. George is talking about the 7-8 page suicide note that he wrote. That was sad. Larry asks if it was bc he thought Casey might have done it? – George says, no I never wrote that. Yeah, but did ya THINK IT? I think so, I think he KNOWS IT! Cindy says she wrote suicide notes and never acted on it. Cindy says you know how panicked you get when you lose your car keys or your cell phone? Imagine losing a child. OMG- I can’t even believe she just made that comparison!!
So that’s interesting though, that you were going to kill yourself even though you thought Caylee was still alive- that’s a great Gma Cindy. Cindy says her faith stopped her– Larry asked her twice why she didn’t do it– HA! George says he knows Casey couldn’t have done it bc he saw the love between Casey and Casey OOPS (freudian slip) I meant Caylee. WHY doesn’t Larry bring up the point that things were changing??- Casey had new friends, went out more, discovered the wonders of weed, had a new boyfriend who didn’t want a toddler around AND Caylee was talking more and beginning to be able to tattle—BAD combo. Caylee lost. Obviously there were things about their daughter that they were oblivious to- let’s bring that up and acknowledge it here- for those of us who like to live in the real world. Larry tries to drill down again on Casey acting “weirdly” by going out and partying. Cindy says, that’s not weird, she was a kid of just 22, I partied when I was 22. Larry snaps back– Not when your daughter was missing– NICE! Cindy seems flustered for a bit and George puts on that angry smile while Cindy tries to go back to that…it was just ONE picture BS. Here’s where Larry should say, Well NO, it was not that one picture- let’s deal w/reality. The VERY NIGHT CAYLEE WENT MISSING SHE RENTED MOVIES AT BLOCKBUSTER W/TONY! She was constantly going out, texting friends inviting them to Hot Body contests, running the shot girls at Fusian — JUST ADMIT SHE DIDN’T NOT APPEAR TO SHOW CONCERN FOR HER DAUGHTER!! Maybe she was acting off a script, right?
BUT NO-GRRRR- Larry lets Cindy get away w/the lie about there just being ONE partying picture AGAIN. That’s inexcusable– WHY keep letting them get away w/that LIE?? Larry asks Brad if he’s surprised it’s a death penalty case– his reply makes no sense– he says he’s surprised bc it’s a family case and usually the DP is for stranger on stranger crime. What a ridiculous argument. There are much better arguments for why it’s surprising they’re seeking the DP. Larry asks again, why they don’t go see her- she won’t say anything incriminating bc she didn’t do it right? George seems to imply that it’s at Casey’s request that they don’t go see her. AH HA some truth slips out. That’s ABSOLUTELY why they don’t go. The ‘acting concerned’ gig was just too much for Casey- she does NOT want to face them.
Larry beats it down– so why don’t you go, just go to see her, don’t you want to, just go? What’s the worst that could come of it? Cindy says she wants to go everyday but… the worst case scenario of going to visit would be watching people pick her apart again. Boo hoo. Wouldn’t the worst case scenario be NEVER knowing what happened? NEVER having Caylee’s killer brought to justice?? These people are so infuriating. They’re so manipulative but yet not smart enough to see that they could try to manipulate people in FAVOR OF them? Have them go and talk to Casey but flip the script and have Casey say OMG I was soo stupid to not have reported her missing and will you PLEASE keep looking for Zanny and asking anyone who knows anything to come forward?!? I realize now that I should have called 911 immediately, I should NEVER have lied to police, I should have told you guys what happened and I’m sorry! Pls when you get media time show this sketch of Zanny, this is the car she drove. I know you love t-shirts- how about wearing some t-shirts w/Zanny’s picture? We must find Zanny! Someone knows something. We have to keep looking. Almost w/out exception, when a crime like this is committed someone spills a secret. Ooops I just slipped into their alternate reality- silly Kim- Casey’s keeping her secrets. Scary monster!
They should beg people and plead for that IF they really believe someone else is involved.
Cindy says she smelled a smell in the car but she’s also smelled a smell in her fridge. WTF does she let rot in her fridge?? Dastardly squirrel corpses? Her house seemed so tidy otherwise. I’m sure some chloroform would clean that mess right up Cindy. Larry is saying- do you regret saying that in that (911) call? Cindy says no (that would require self reflection) I was just trying to lure the police to my house. Larry asks why Casey didn’t call the police the whole time her daughter was “missing” –Cindy says, Casey was probably coping and grieving the best she could. Larry’s like yeah, but it’s weird right? Yeah, it’s weird that Casey didn’t report her missing, Cindy says. Ya think? Cindy says AGAIN the LIE that it was ONE evening- out partying. OTHER PEOPLE, MANY witnesses have come forward to say that almost every night she was out partying and when she wasn’t she was sitting on Tony’s couch smoking weed. WAKE UP LARRY- THAT IS INFURIATING!!!!!!!
Cindy gives the story that Casey was looking for clues on the stripper pole in the club. Larry (how does he contain himself) asks… and that’s believable to you? It sounds funny. Cindy says we don’t know the whole story. No sh!t Sherlock, neither do you BECAUSE YOUR DAUGHTER AND THE TRUTH ARE UNACQUAINTED!! Larry asks if they ever pressed Casey for answers– George gives that weird smile– you can tell he regrets NOT PRESSING her more. He starts to say they didn’t really get a chance but Cindy interrupts and says… she was home we DID talk to her. George mumbles, NOT the way I wanted to sometimes. Poor George–he’s filled w/regret and he KNOWS what his daughter did. Cindy’s sense of self delusion is MUCH more powerful. She wants to stop this line of questioning and Larry moves on.
Ohhh Larry brings up Casey’s incriminating journal entry. Cindy says that was written in 2005 and Brad has that diary. Cindy says the prosecutor didn’t release that- the police took a picture and they released that. There’s trouble w/this story. Larry says will you turn it in if the police want to test it? Brad says absolutely. Cindy is boring HOLES into Brad about this– something has really pushed her buttons here (scary monster). I wonder if she found that diary and added the ’05 date. I wouldn’t put it past her at this point.
The State Attny’s office refused to comment on the case. Larry asks about items found at the scene that seem to have come from their home– George defers to Brad who says they will have to wait for trial to talk about that. Brad says they have a circumstantial case-which is only as strong as their weakest link. Keep telling yourself and your clients that.
George says when he worked as a detective but he never worked off a presumption until he had all the evidence. BS- you must have been a sh!tty detective then. George says he wouldn’t have made an arrest in this case. BS! Cindy says they made an arrest based on Casey lying about where she said she worked (we know you think it’s ok to lie, Cindy). Larry says- why did she lie?? Cindy says maybe to spend more time w/Caylee! WOW, that is RICH!! How does Larry keep a straight face?!@#$?
Brad says there was no heart shaped sticker on the duct tape- that was speculation. WHAT??? OK, then how do you explain the heart shaped sticker residue on the duct tape? Wasn’t the sticker found in the bag too?
Larry asks if they have anyone in mind as a suspect– they both look like they want to jump out of their skin but say they can’t comment about that right now. As I said earlier- I bet their prime suspect’s name probably rhymes w/Blessy Fund. EVIL!!
OK- we’re 43 mins in and here’s Larry’s first mention of the foundation. Now we’re treated to Whynock singing a song he wrote for Caylee- that seems like a colossal waste of time. Was this a condition of their intv? I think there are more important things to cover. WHO did he sleep w/to get this gig anyway? WHO the hell is he? HOW is he associated w/the Anthony’s OOOOOMG- Cindy wrote that?- I think they just said that!!!?!@#$%%?^$%^> I will have to go back and actually listen to it now.
Larry asks–Should whoever did this crime get the death penalty??— they both say they don’t support the death penalty. Um, follow up Larry…then what do you think should happen to the person who did it? Cindy says in response to viewer question that she could never cut ties w/Casey even if she finds out she did it. Caller calls in to thank them for the beautiful memorial– the Anthony’s VISIBLY breathe in that comment sooooo gratefully. It’s almost sad. Almost. Cindy says God can’t prevent bad things from happening- but you have to make money off it good of it.
Whoa good question from viewer–if you have evidence that she didn’t do it- why not bring it out and save the $$ that will be spent on the trial? Cindy slipped up in answer– so funny- really shows her twisted logic! She said that they don’t have evidence that she didn’t do it but there’s alot of evidence…um there’s evidence out there that doesn’t PROVE that she did it. Or some such BS– I will have to go back and listen- I don’t have the magic TV that let’s me rewind. Larry asks if they have hope for the trial. Cindy says, she does- if people take the oath of a juror and listen to the evidence, I think they will… and she just drifts off. Larry should have followed that up– you think they will what? Find out that Casey really was mother of the year? Learn why she went out partying while Caylee was missing? Do you think people will see that she’s innocent or do you think they will find reasonable doubt?
9:56pm (4 mins left- ha/ha) Larry says, what’s this foundation about? A teddy bear has joined us on the table. Cindy says- they’re doing it to honor Caylee’s name- says that they actually thought about it back in September— UM you thought about a MEMORIAL FOUNDATION for CAYLEE back in September??? OOOPS! Cindy says they are going to provide counseling to families w/a missing child? Larry asks- with psychologists? Cindy says, we (my husband and I- who were both suicidal) will help them the best that we can. Oh, what a treat. Larry says, what’s with the bear? Cindy says money raised will go to giving the bears as a THANK YOU to law enforcement starting w/Orange County! The bears would be on hand for first responders to give out. WHAT?? WOMAN– you have vilified those people ad nauseam since the beginning. Cindy says she’s President but NO ONE expects to collect a salary? Does anyone expect to pay the mortgage? BS-much?
Caller says- if Casey was only partying one night- why so many outfits? Cindy says they’re all old pics. LARRY-WAKE UP AND MENTION THE WITNESSES WHO ALL CONFIRM THAT SHE WAS OUT PARTYING MANY IF NOT MOST NIGHTS!!!!! Cindy says she would love to go see Casey if they could keep it out of the media– well that’s too bad, so sad– your daughter lost some privacy rights when she was neglectful in her care for Caylee by not reporting her missing for 30 days– and that’s just AT THE VERY LEAST. You should at least acknowledge that- that Casey is where she should be bc she acted stupidly in not reporting it immediately- that’s neglect– she should be punished for that- just admit it. That seems to be the CRUX of what went wrong in GETTING JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE right? WILL THIS BE A FOCUS IN YOUR FOUNDATION???? Will some of your advice to families in similar situations be NO MATTER WHAT- CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY??!! Just so you know, IT SHOULD TAKE PRIORITY over renting movies at blockbuster, hot body contests, smoking weed and watching TV on your new boyfriend’s couch. Is that some advice you will share w/families???
This is a funny video posted on Larry’s blog from someone passionate about the case- it’s a rant that turns into a little PSA for birth control. Oh, Larry, you are SO hip and cool- it’s too bad you didn’t call them on their lies- do some research before you have guests like these on. Were there conditions on the intv?
Questions? Comments? Thoughts? Concerns? I will be live blogging the show tonight AND trying to call in bc I have QUESTIONS! COMMENTS! THOUGHTS! and CONCERNS!!!
Here is the blog where Larry and Co have asked for questions to be submitted. If you submit questions PLEASE include some form of the first 2 here–I sooo badly want someone to ask them to DESCRIBE FOR US the person Casey says took Caylee. That should be their main focus in getting air time– Justice for Caylee would mean finding that person and bringing them to justice.
I think I got a bit carried away… but here are mine:
What is being done to look for the person you believe killed Caylee?
Where is the sketch of “Zanny” or whomever Casey dropped Caylee off with on June 16th?
What do you think should happen to the person who murdered Caylee?
Why did Casey have a “nanny” when she didn’t have a job?
Have you figured out what Casey was doing during all the time you thought she was working? Have you found out where your grand daughter was being taken or hanging out for all that time? If not, why not?
What day did you find out and confront Casey about her stealing from your mother, Shirley?
Wasn’t there an argument about that on June 15th? If not, why not discuss with your daughter the fact that she stole from your mother?
George, pls describe in detail– the last day you saw Caylee? Who woke her? Fed her? Dressed her? Was she being carried or did she walk when Casey left with her on June 16th?
Do you know what happened on the last day Casey says she saw Caylee? If not, WHY?
Do you want the entire truth to come out about what happened to Caylee, no matter who it implicates? What are you doing to further that cause?
Do you think she dropped her with “Zanny” or some other caretaker or do you think Caylee was taken from her at Jay Blanchard Park or elsewhere?
Did you find a notebook or any evidence that Casey was trying to track down Zenaida Fernandez Gonzales while Caylee was “missing?”
Do you now acknowledge (as you both did originally) that there was a dead body (smell) in the back of Casey’s car?
People all over the country conducted tests, putting pizza in the back of their trunks to rot– ALL reported just dried up pizza and NO smell. Scientific tests have proven that there was a decomposing body- this can be challenged in a court because the science hasn’t been used but the science is sound. Why do you still claim it was pizza?
Was that car dusted for fingerprints? If not, why haven’t you insisted on that- in searching for Caylee’s killer?
Did you ever call any of the numbers (or use any contact info) you had for Zanny while Casey and Caylee were “missing” from June 16 – July 15th?
Did George see into the trunk or just the back seat on June 24 (the day of the gas cans)? In either case, what exactly did he see?
You found out she didn’t work at Universal when you went up there on June 24 (the day of the gas cans) -did you confront Casey with that information?
Do you think that those elaborate lies (about Tampa and Jeff etc) were something Casey was told to say in a script?
If you found out Casey was guilty would you work towards justice for Caylee then?
Do you think Caylee is happy now, watching your actions from heaven?
Why did Casey tell you she got a call from Caylee on July 15th -the day you found her? Was she trying to assure you that Caylee was alive? Now you know that Caylee was already dead at that time– how do you explain that lie?
Why don’t you visit your daughter? Is it THAT difficult to talk to her without saying something incriminating?
Have you ever gone back and watched those jailhouse visits with Casey where it is SO OBVIOUS that she’s lying and only concerned with herself?
If Casey was worried about getting the law involved, due to threats from the kidnappers, then why didn’t she stop you before the 911 calls and say NO we can’t do that and here’s why?
Do you communicate with Casey through letters, calls or any other method?
Do you have any contact with Jose Baez? If so, how often and of what nature? Do you approve of the work he’s doing in Casey’s case?
Have you asked the authorities to share their best evidence with you- so that you can make the most informed decision?
What did you mean when you said you canceled your appearance on Oprah for “integrity” reasons?
Why have you refused to take lie detector tests?
Do you know what Jose Baez’s defense strategy will be? If so, does it explain or “clear everything up” regarding Casey’s unusual behavior?
Have you ever suggested that Casey get a “second opinion” on her defense?
Do you suspect Jose Baez may be more concerned with taking a high profile case to court than with your daughter’s welfare?
Where are Caylee’s remains? Did you have her cremated?
Are either of you working? Will you be taking a salary from donations made to Caylee’s foundation?
When you posted the “My Caylee is Missing” message on your MySpace July 3rd you were obviously concerned– thought Casey was lying about her whereabouts and sent Lee to find her downtown– did you consider calling police? reporting Casey’s car stolen? calling the contact numbers you had for Zanny? If not, why not?
How do you explain that Casey’s phone records and computer forensics don’t show frantic phone calls or desperate internet searches for “Zanny” while Caylee was missing?
We all now know, from multiple witnesses, that Casey was going out, hanging out, and partying for most of the time that Caylee was supposedly “missing” -how do you explain that behavior?
Did you ask Casey to outline specifically for you the things she was doing to look for Caylee?
Has Casey explained to you, to your satisfaction, the internet searches she did for things like chloroform, neck breaking and missing children websites?
Do you think you might garner more sympathy if you at least acknowledged some mistakes and lies from your daughter?
George said that Caylee never showed any recognition when Zanny was mentioned- did that make you suspicious?
How much money would you say that Casey contributed to household expenses and Caylee’s care on a weekly basis?
Did Casey pay her own car insurance? Did Caylee have health insurance?
Did you ask Casey how she was earning money? Or why she stole from Amy to buy beer and lingerie?
Did you ask Casey why she left her purse and other things in the car at Amscot and why she never went back for it or took so long to go back for it?
Do you still suspect Jesse or Amy?
Do you still believe Zanny (Zenaida Fernandez Gonzales- or under another name) exists even though all the people surrounding her were fictitious- and Jeff didn’t introduce them and didn’t have a son named Zachery?
Tell me about the day you found the gate open and the ladder by the pool.
Why do you think Casey backed her car into the garage and borrowed a shovel when she was supposed to be at work?
How often did Casey do yard work such as digging up bamboo roots?
What were you looking for and what did you find when, as you told authorities, you searched your yard before they came to do that?
Why is there no mention of Tim Miller and Texas Equusearch on your foundation site after they spent so much time, money and effort tirelessly searching for Caylee? Have you ever thanked him or Roy Krunk?
Will you watch? Some people are writing to the sponsors of Larry King to protest them giving the Anthony’s airtime?
Cindy and George grant CBS an interview. OOOPS- stupidity leak. They had a shot at Oprah and then decided to make her play second fiddle to the 3RD fiddle in the MORNING show game and so Oprah rightly said- thanks for playing but…GAME OVER!
Nice intv on the Early Show this morning and there will be more of it tomorrow. The Anthony’s burned Oprah though– so apparently they are still immune to ANY good PR advice. Are they even getting any? What a trainwreck! Though, I have to say- they did do much better at keeping their ‘tude in check (OMG did you see those depos– BRUTAL!!!). It was so ill advised.
Maybe they had valium for breakfast this time, is their attny taking advice from Britney’s dad and drugging them OR could it have been the soft, gentle soothing voice of the interviewer? It was quite the vocal technique – that’s the way I talk to my fur baby (dog) when he has an owie- which incidentally he does right now. The groomers at PetSmart cannot seem to cut his hair w/out scorching his skin- grrr. Anyway, I’ve never seen that interviewer before and I thought she did a good job but her voice struck me as cooing- I was waiting for her to reach over and pet them or scratch behind their ears. Which takes me back to Oprah- though not so apropos- have you ever noticed that sometimes when Oprah is interviewing children and talking about a tough subject- she pets them just like a dog??? It’s so cute (and not at all disturbing)!! If I can motivate myself I will try to find a clip bc I’m kidding you not- she pets children. I think it’s bc she hasn’t or doesn’t spend a lot of time w/kids and yet she raises her dogs like children- so that’s how she comforts. Watch for it.
Anyway here are some questions/comments/thoughts/concerns I had when watching the Anthony’s intv.
They played the clip of Cindy speaking to Casey at Caylee’s memorial saying something like…
I hope you’re able to hear me, I love you and I wish I could comfort you right now. I wish I could take away your tears.
UM QUESTION- Then WHY don’t you comfort her- WHY don’t you visit her in prison? Are you SO unable to avoid saying something that might incriminate your daughter- couldn’t you just say hello, talk and provide that comfort. Or do you just want to talk about it on TV? Are you afraid you would SNAP bc you KNOW she did it? Or are you able to admit that to yourself yet? What will it take?
Is there a way you could write her a letter that would never become public? — If so, would you write to her and tell her you forgive her IF anything did happen but that the best thing for ALL concerned ESPECIALLY Caylee would be to tell the truth so that she can rest in peace. Also, HELLO- the death penalty…the State must be feeling pretty confident- that’s some pretty beefy food for thought. Baez is certainly no legal genius and he has been blowing MAJOR smoke up your daughter’s ass. NEWSFLASH–He has HIS own interests at the forefront and a HUGE SCANDALOUS TRIAL that will be covered world wide is his WET DREAM- he’s not even considering the fact that what may be in Casey’s best interest- is to avoid that at all costs. When you get a serious dangerous diagnosis from a doctor- you ALWAYS get a second opinion. If you don’t you certainly should. Casey should consider doing that- for her own good. I won’t even mention (barely) Caylee again- but she IS watching. What would Caylee want? WWJD? WWCayleeDo?
The interviewer sucks up a bit to start saying that most people don’t sympathize w/them- that they’ve really lost not just Caylee but Casey too—Cry me a river. They’ve had that public sympathy and then they continually turn around and spit and stomp all over it. I still sympathize w/them obviously but they honestly make it extremely difficult.
Casey may be put to death? Their reply is that Casey is presumed innocent- we can’t think about that right now. That’s soo Scarlett O’hara. I just can’t think about that right now– I’ll think about that tomorrow. Classic. I’m actually trying to research cases of people in a similar situation bc they ARE in an extremely difficult position. They don’t want to PILE ON and do anything else that will lead Casey to her death but at the same time it makes them look ridiculous and absolutely OUT of touch w/reality. What would you do?
Plea deal? George says well…Her defensive team wouldn’t take away that option or some such BS and then Cindy comes back much stronger in Casey’s defense saying emphatically NO- Casey would never take a plea bc she didn’t do it. George was obviously trying to give a careful yet intellectually honest answer and I’m sure Cindy will take his d!ck off and jar it tonight for that misstep.
Why so adamant in your belief of Casey? Interestingly Cindy doesn’t say bc we KNOW she couldn’t didn’t/wouldn’t do it– she says bc we love her. That’s telling. AGAIN– think about Caylee. She sees that you are putting Casey first- that makes me soo ANGRY!
WHY no Zanny nanny references? I wish the interviewer would have asked about this- I wonder if it was off limits? I would say– how is the investigation going into WHO DID THIS TO PRECIOUS CAYLEE? What are you doing to bring that person to justice. Have you talked to OJ to see maybe who he hired to look into his wife’s death? ARE YOU LOOKING FOR ZANNY? WHERE IS THE FU@KING SKETCH? We are not as stupid as you (think we are)! Stop insulting our intelligence.
All the evidence- doesn’t bode well for Casey… Cindy looks uncomfortable and doesn’t answer- just turns to Brad who says the typical attny stuff and warns about waiting for a jury.
Cindy says–The truth will come out at trial- that’s what we have to wait for. The jury will be able to see… There’s more to it– Cindy said.
Cindy- we want the truth but we have to wait for everything to come out at trial….MY QUESTION–Do you feel like you know the whole truth now? If not, WHY not? Why hasn’t Casey told you everything? Are you OK w/that? WHY are you OK w/that? Wouldn’t she tell you everything IF she wanted you to help find the person responsible. THINK about that- it does NOT make sense.
Cindy says she can’t answer that right now– about why Casey was afraid and didn’t report. Um, yeah bc you know that is bc she DID it right?
Intv asks — You’ve NEVER gone more than 2 days w/out seeing Caylee- why no missing report??? Cindy stabs our collective brains again w/the answer that she never had a reason not to trust Caylee w/Casey– Casey made Caylee her priority. UM, have you been watching the news- or talked w/your mother or brother. WE KNOW THAT’S NOT TRUE! You were going to go for custody. THERE’S A HUGE MOTHERF@CKING ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM– Why doesn’t she get called on this.
Another question I have–Did you ever try to call any of the numbers you had for Zanny? We know how heartbreakingly concerned you were on July 3rd when you went to the trouble of JOINING myspace so that you could post that heartbreaking post “MY CAYLEE IS MISSING!”
How many times did you call Zanny from that number in your phone book on july 15th? Can I see your phone records? How many times have you tried to locate/call her since then?
My next questions–Tell me about where you believe Caylee is now? What would you say to the person that harmed Caylee. I know you’re faithful and thus you believe that that person who took Caylee, killed, and discarded her like garbage will eventually be judged but what do you think they should do now? Is it more important that they avoid justice or would you ask them to come forward and confess? What would you like to say to them? Do you think Zanny acted alone?
There’s more of the intv tomorrow, I hope they enjoyed their trip to NY in lieu of the windy city. WTF?
BRUTAL Baez BASHING post to come. I’m tripping over myself- WHAT A DOUCHEBAG!!
This turd blossom has just stepped on one of my last nerves. He must be truly…dumber than dirt. He and Casey are just a match made in heaven. I’ve been glancing at this case lately, not paying much attention, just using my peripheral vision. But now, someone has stumbled upon my rage button. OOPS, I think it was Jose. You FU@KING DUMBASS!!!!@# How do you walk around in the world w/that noodle of yours? I’m surprised that you don’t fall more.
I’ve been away from the case for quite some time- can someone recommend a site where I might play catch up? I recently got hip to the whole private eye searching the crime scene site- a MONTH earlier than when the remains were found. WHAT THE F*CK is up w/that?
Wow. Stick a fork in her…she’s DONE! Hundreds of pages of even more incriminating documents were released today in the Casey Anthony case. Including the disturbing Journal entry she wrote on June 21 saying (among other things that) “this is the happiest I’ve been in a very long time.” This is probably why Jose had to check himself into the hospital for “stomach pains” – maybe he can’t “stomach” the fact that his precious little publicity magnet/client has dug herself quite a grave and the best thing for his client, though NOT for him would be for her to take a plea- forcing Jose to lose his precious spot in the eternal glow of the shameless press.
1st half of Casey's journal entry June 21.
She acts like a burden has been lifted from her- which is obviously how she felt. I’m sure she wanted to write what she probably continually said to herself– Caylee is in a better place. Actually, I don’t think that spiteful b!tch even cares.
2nd half of Casey's disturbing journal entry.
She probably justifies it by saying- well I wanted to give her up to adoption in the first place; Mom/Cindy is now bitching about the financial and babysitting duties; my new boyfriend doesn’t want a toddler around and neither do I; I wasn’t being the best mom- that would come out in court if Mom/Cindy tried to get custody; all my friends would find out that I’m a huge liar, loser and thief; I would have to actually get a job to support her; Caylee was torn between Mom/Cindy and me; she liked Mom/Cindy better; she’s getting old enough now to tattle on me and I would rather party at Fusion than spend time w/the snot rag anyway- good riddance.
I’m still going through the docs and pics (here’s a link) but I’m extremely disappointed to find that there were NO fingerprints found on the duct tape. Here are some highlights that stood out in what I’ve seen so far. Several things (as we suspected) link DIRECTLY back to the Anthony home. The laundry bag Caylee was found in– the exact kind and brand including being lined w/the exact kind of black garbage bag w/yellow handles was found in the Anthony’s garage. The duct tape brand, Henkel, matches that found in the Anthony home. When they came w/a search warrant evidently listing a Winnie the Pooh blanket– Cindy admitted that Caylee’s room was missing one. In what appears to be a flip flop as to who’s cooperating w/authorities–Cindy coughs this info up while George was very agitated and confrontational and Cindy made him wait on the porch. I’m certain they must have known that blanket was missing for some time. Yikes. The same brand and apparent lot number of clothing found at the scene were found in Caylee’s room.
Stuff comes out about Annie for the first time and I’m a bit disappointed. I was hoping that bc she and Casey were so close that Annie’s intv and such were being w/held bc they were so incriminating. Some may still be held back but evidently she and Casey had a falling out and were not as close -at least not BFF style- during the time in question. She does speak to the obvious rivalry and jealousy between Cindy and Casey about Caylee and says that Casey once felt she was having a break down (March 2007) and talked about getting help and possibly having herself committed– Cindy talked her out of it I guess bc Casey later said I talked to my mom and I’m ok. Damn. Annie said that EVERY time Casey went out at night Cindy would call and harass her bc she thought Casey should be spending time w/Caylee.
Jose has released a statement calling the forensic science in the case “junk science.” I call Jose’s work on this case “junk law.” Jose supposedly got these documents 9 days ago and has not gone to see Casey since then– nor has any other member of the defense team. This is the longest period of time that Casey has gone w/out a visit from the defense…her only visitors. That’s interesting. Poor thing, maybe I’ll write her a letter. I wonder if she even knows that new docs were released? Has she had any communication w/anyone? Will someone now try to convince her to take a plea?
Here’s a pic of the heart sticker that was found at the crime scene. They also found a sheet in Casey’s home w/missing heart stickers.
Heart sticker found at burial/dump scene.
Found in the Anthony home- missing a heart sticker.
It’s hard not to think about the Anthony family right now. I hope everyone keeps them in their thoughts and prayers. I can’t even imagine what they must feel as more and more nails are driven into their daughter’s “coffin” — can they possibly still deny reality any longer? I haven’t heard anything more about their trying to negotiate a “private” meeting w/Casey but I am still convinced that they wanted to do that in order to try to get her to cop a plea. I really wish she would. What possible defense could any reasonable person believe? Not everyone is quite as dumb as you, Jose.
BTW- the Winnie the Pooh blanket- every time it is mentioned in these documents it is called- a “stained Winnie the Pooh blanket.” I wonder what that stain is? Is the stain just decomp or was the blanket stained in the act of murder and that’s why Casey had to take it from the house? Not that Casey is smart, but it sure seems like a colossaly stupid thing to do– to take that blanket which Cindy was sure to notice (and did). We don’t know WHEN Cindy noticed that but she only came clean that she knew it was missing as soon as she read something related to it on the search warrant police were executing.
Found at the burial/dump site.
Another interesting bit found at the scene was a blue Gatorade bottle w/white sediment in it. Either in that bottle or near it was a syringe secreted in what appeared to be a cardboard center from a toilet paper roll. I hope that some of that tests positive for chloroform. (Annie said that when she asked Casey about the chloroform she said- well I had cleaning products back there.) I wonder why a syringe though? Where would she get a syringe? Were either of Casey’s grandparents diabetic or using a syringe for their health care? Annie also said that Casey tried to throw Jesse under the bus – saying well, Jesse had a key to my car. I wonder why she really went to his house to “take a shower” that day? Was she trying to frame him? Seduce him? Rev. Grund said that Jesse told him Casey left the door wide open while she took a shower that day. But Jesse wanted none of it – he wasn’t falling for it if that is what she was up to. Yikes, I wonder if she wanted a “sample” from him to plant on Caylee or at the scene? What day was that? I’ll have to look it up, I can’t remember. I would not be surprised if she was scheming some thing like that up. She is pure evil.
Journal page adjacent to the entry marked June 21.
WHY does this journal say ’03? Did the pen skip and it was supposed to say ’08? Wishful thinking. Was Casey just writing ’03 to protect herself? That seems bizarre. Why would LE release the diary if they didn’t feel it was related? It seems to me that the ’03 may totally nullify the diary. Bummer- it sure seems to fit and probably does. WTF? Here’s a wordle of what she wrote:
Casey's journal entry- the future holds jail b!tch!
Oh, somewhere in the documents it clears Lee Anthony as being Caylee’s father- he was NOT. NOT that I ever suspected he was, but some did. It actually had me googling ‘brother sister incest’ – gross. Just another of the despicable things Casey has forced me to do in this case, like buying the Enquirer. Anyway, in doing so I found an interesting article where a sister writes affectionately about having a sexual relationship w/her brother over several years and many of the comments are supportive. To each his own. Thanks Casey.
