George and Cindy Media Message

On Friday, George and Cindy Anthony stated in an e-mail message of a spokesperson, that the decision to seek the death penalty will not change the support and love that the Anthony’s have for Casey.

Lee Anthony, through his attorney, stated that he did not expect the State’s Attorney’s office to make this move given the evidence that has been made public. The attorney then described his client (Lee) is going through shock and horror that the State is prosecuting this case to that level.

I do not think that any family going through this should not love their family member. I do not think that the way you have looked at your child for all of their lives would change much. But to be the one who is the only suspect in the case of killing her child, and the fact that it looks was done not by accident and most likely premeditated and planned, I personally would feel some anguish. I could not put on blinders and just issue statements or walk out of depositions. I as a parent would so have disdain for that which my child will have done, I think that I would have a bearing of extreme guilt in the matter. A brother, who felt strong bonds to a sister so close in age, should in the very least shutter at the thought of the baby as Casey put her into bags. I think the family should gather together in prayer, I think the family should gather and find forgiveness as they step forward in a long and arduous trial that looms ahead.

I think that the family should close ranks and try to campaign to spare Casey’s life and have answers and  redeeming reasons. Every soul can be saved so they say. But the stance of hard-ball denial is not working for the Anthony family and denial is not a healthy thing.

The prosecution and sheriffs department and cooperation from the FBI, the departments have been meticulous in findings and apparently not leaving any unturned stones. Police have been able to track Casey’s sleeping and eating patterns. They are tracking her whereabouts. What was discovered is uncanny! On the average Casey texted some 12 messages per hour! Upon waking every morning she sent approx. 60 text messages! This goes on non-stop throughout the day. Between the dates of June 1 st-July 17th  Casey sent over 4,000 text messages!

Wow! Casey has lots to say and said it often!  So much so that it has helped in the investigation of exactly when Casey did everything that she did. Casey was up until 2-3 AM and then getting up for the next day at between the hours of 6-7 AM; everyday! A lot of texting and no sleep make for a nasty unproductive person in society. Add in a bit of bi-polar and you have got yourself one heck of a mess!

There is no perfect crime and most real criminals will get caught in the end. In this case, Cindy Casey’s mother is memorizing whole sections of the reports, so that Cindy will be “perfect” on the stand when it is her turn to get up there.

Hopefully, the prosecution will have an easy time, wrapping up a perfect death sentence for a perfect wanna-be, and then this will have been the perfect crime!

Casey Says Lee Wanted Sex !

I watched Nancy Grace and those new unreleased tapes again, and come away even more disgusted than the night before!  Casey stoops to new lows and as usual it’s very sick and twisted!

While Casey primps herself to death making herself be much prettier for the camera. It is very important for one to look dazzling in the cameras of the police interrogation room!  But I got even more turned off as the interview with Jesse Grund continued.  He was on the tape saying that he too was revolted and sickened as he told investigators what Casey had told him. She said to Jesse that she was alone in the house one day and that Lee had asked her for sex!  In fact she said that he tried to trick her into doing it! What? I think as Casey has shown us all that she is a pathological liar and the majority of things that her mouth spews are not true.

Now mind you I think Lee would do things to help his sister. But this one I sure hope no one believes. Lee could be a lot of things, but an incest raper is most likely not one of them! It was Casey fantasizing again! Remember that her mind can go to places that all of us non-pathological killers do not go!  I guess that she thought Jesse would feel so much more sorry for her.

Her thoughts are twisted and confusing but the manufacture of lies is going on constantly and one has to be larger than the next! I hope that in this lie, there was no kernal of truth as with many of them.

Casey Anthony:The Day of Arrest!

As seen last evening on the Nancy Grace show, was new tapes released to the public and starring none other than Casey Anthony herself. The tapes reveal, at least to this writer, that Casey Anthony is definitely marching to a different drum! The tape starts with the subsequent questioning of Casey as she first comes into the Orange County cops possession. She appears to be very calm, collected, and to the matter of fact. What catches my eye, as the officers exit the room, is Casey’s apparent desire to primp. She begins fingering her hair,adjusting her shirt, even standing at one point primping the whole entire shirt, pulling up knee socks,looking at fingernails, and wringing her hands. At one point Casey realizes that there are cameras in each room, and even asks one of the officers: are there cameras in every room? She did not appear to have any concern for anything, just I want to look cute right now. She is not crying, and  her voice is steady and shows no sign of strain. She isn’t a person who has committed an atrocity, she’s just a person who even at one point, says she knew this was coming. Meaning that she knew she would eventually get arrested.

When the actual questioning begins she acts as if she is a lawyer. She tries to act smarter than the officers and puts on an air that she doesn’t have to answer the questions on the fact that she is not generating the conversation. She knows that at least anything that she says can and will be used against her in the court of law.  Still I find her demeanor quite unbelievable. Who has not gotten stopped for speeding and felt like crying? Who has not been upset for tiny small things that would never put us away for any amount of jail time? Let alone killing our own child, then throwing her out like trash, and then going living our life, and then having police question us because they do know in their heart of hearts that we did something? She truly has no heart and is made of stone!

Other notes and movements on the case, the taping of brother Lee in the car with Casey’s ex-boyfriend is chilling. He admits that he is not sure that Casey did it!The interview of the ex-investigator telling that Dominic Casey was given instruction to find Caylee’s remains and the approximate area in which to find her and the fact that she was point blank dead! This makes us wonder who and what did actually take place. Did the Anthony’s have something to do with the disposal of Caylee’s body, did Casey actually tell Lee? And then he hire the investigators to see if she were telling the truth? So many questions because these two investigators were out there long before the police were, and the meter readers tip! I think overall this case is moving in the right direction and I think that there is plenty of information that has come to light now that begs to question. Sometimes when you are getting close to solving any puzzle the pieces will start to fit together much more easily. And then it becomes complete and the whole picture is shown.

I think the amount of bulls**t that Casey put out there is incredible that she could manufacture so many lies. And live like this. We can figure that she crafted these types of lies all of her life so that it was second nature to her. In other words, it appears that Casey lies so much that she not only believes her lies, she was living in one lie after another. Nothing in her life was real except for the fact that she was breathing! Too bad.

Once again, the walls are closing in now, and the puzzle pieces are starting to fit together much more easily now.Good luck Casey and Baez team; see you in court!

Moving Memorial For Caylee Anthony

A few notes on Caylee Anthony’s memorial. Today a sorrowful event was held in Orlando at The First Baptist Church. The church seats up to 5,ooo. Attendance at today’s memorial was approximately 12oo.  The attendees that came were compassionate and were truly there to say good-bye to the little girl who has stole our hearts.  Caylee Marie Anthony just 2 years old when she passed away in a traumatic way.

No one can fathom what this family has endured unless this has happened to you or your family. For George, Cindy, and Lee my heart goes out to you all. Your pain was very prevalent today as you spoke and we wept. They claimed to be united and to stand strong. And they need to, the road ahead is long and is filled with quite a bit of anguish.

The tribute today was kind and heartfelt. The family spoke one by one with Lee leading off. He thanked everyone and asked us to fill our hearts with patience and grace. He asked us that whatever we take from today, whatever it is that we seek to pay tribute to Caylee. He mentioned the initals CMA only. He did not say Caylee’s name nor did he say Casey’s name. He kissed three times the bracelet that he wore all while saying C M A.

George was wearing pride on his sleeve as he spoke of his little granddaughter. He beamed as he spoke of Caylee’s presence still being around. He was Jo-Jo to her. He cherished the times that he had with her. He remembered fondly the popcorn they ate together, and the fun she was with her beads ans sunglasses. And he reflected with smiles as he told the gathering how Caylee loved her vegetables! She was his “sunshine” and he taught her the song “You are my sunshine”. He also mentioned in Gods heaven he will be with her again.

Then George shifted to Casey and asked for prayers saying she deserved prayers. He asked the gathering to write her letters and he petitioned the group to not pass judgement. And to ask for hope and prayer for all of us.  He received a standing ovation.

Then Cindy came up and remembered as well the day that Casey came to her and told her she was going to be a grandmother. She reflected that Caylee got up in the morning smiling. She told of the tea parties that Caylee would have. And mentioned her dress up play, and her love of music, and loved to go into the pool with Caylee. She expressed that those were some of her favorite times. She also said good night to the stars and moon. She too shifted to Casey and thanked Casey for giving her the gift of Caylee. Cindy said she will miss the love that was shared between Caylee and Casey. She stated that she got her beauty and compassion from Casey. And finally that Caylee knew that she was loved. And that Cindy loved all of her children unconditionally. At her end of eulogy she asked the group to do something positive; to make a difference. She too got a standing ovation.

The music and the flowers were beautiful. The memorial was pretty and it was heart wrenching to see a family lost in misery. So sad that things had to turn out so bad. I wish that they would not have had to endure such awfulness. I would wish this on no one.

Turning to comments made by Jose Baez in a small press conference the day before, Casey stated that she cannot stop what her parents are doing. Today during the time of the memorial the prison officials were going to allow Casey time out to see the memorial, she did refuse, and visited with Jose Baez during that time. I am sure that it may have been watched via his computer?

It is too bad that Casey refused to watch the memorial. It is too bad that she did not want to pick music or flowers. It’s too bad that Casey felt so cold. In this the very last time to say good bye to the child we all have come to love.

Thank you Anthony family for the memorial. We’re so sorry for your loss in so many ways. God Bless you all in your journey ahead. Thank you too for giving this child a day full of grace and dignity.

Memorial for Caylee Anthony/Baez Sells Pics!

It was released yesterday that a memorial has been announced for little Caylee Anthony, finally!  Although no funeral has been planned that we are all aware of. 

The memorial will take place on Tuesday, February 10, 2009. It will be held at The First Baptist Church of Orlando. This church can seat 5,000 persons.  And it was specified that the family of Caylee (meaning George and Cindy Anthony and Lee, I assume),the  public has been invited to attend services. The family has requested to have the ability to remove anyone that they see fit. No cameras,cell phones, video cameras, or anything that can record or take pictures will be allowed.

While Caylee’s mother Casey is in prison, she is released for at least one hour per day. This one hour will consist of reading books, watching TV, and relaxing out of her cell. Casey may be able to watch the memorial service on TV. She will not be released to come to the memorial. Her time out of her cell could or could not coincide with the time of the memorial on TV. We will see what will happen then.

Cindy Anthony has picked music and flowers for the memorial service. And it appears that police and church security staff are working together to have a safe, and secure service. Each person will be checked, there will be no bags allowed inside, no cell phones, no cameras, and no video allowed.  It is said that each person will also pass through a metal detector. At this writing it cannot be verified if the metal detectors are being installed or if they are already there.

George Anthony got out of the Halifax hospital using side doors to evade the media.  Cindy and Lee have not been heard from in the mean time. There also has been no word as to when they will finally lay this little girl to rest in a proper burial.

In other important news Jose Baez  put in a motion for a change of venue. He says that he and his client cannot/and would not get a fair trial. He knows that there is too much heat in Orlando. He is asking for the change in venue to be secret so that the media cannot get a hold of the details and create a circus atmosphere.  In other news the tacky Beaz team has already sold pictures and video of Caylee for the money to conduct her trial!They garnered the sum of $200,000!  Jose Baez claims that his client is doing what she can to pay for his representation. Including the selling of more pictures to come. Jose Baez claims he has not attached a price tag to them, he is asking what will a company pay for them, and whatever media is buying them will be who sets the price.

Whatever may transpire, it is all so sad and very shameful that this event is happening. I feel sorry for all those that knew Caylee, Casey and the Anthony family. Casey’s actions have set off a chain of events that I am not sure she even thought could happen. It is all so sad.

Casey Caught with “Contraband”!

Yesterday, supposedly Jose Baez dropped off clothes to the jail for Casey Anthony. I’m not sure why Casey Anthony would be receiving clothes other than dressing for court, what else does she need?  Inmates have clothes and  socks. Guards though, came up with an interesting find, inside one of the socks was a purple “find Caylee” bracelet! Did it get there by accident or was it placed there?

Perhaps it was a message from mamma. You know how moms stick little notes or goodies inside their childs’ lunchbox, perhaps Cindy didn’t do that all those growing up years, or perhaps it was just a gentle little way Cindy chose to let Casey know she’s thinking of her or maybe Cindy wants her to think about Caylee. Or worse and much more sinister-perhaps it was a code for something!

Well, Jose Baez knows better as a lawyer, but he was admonished and the jail “let it go” saying that it is forbidden for lawyers or anyone to be giving gifts of anything to the inmates. The bracelet was confiscated.

In other developments regarding the Anthony case/ or Anthony family: George is voluntarily staying in the Halifax hospital on his own volition, he will check out of there when he is ready.

Jose Baez still talking about how he feels pressure that the press and people that are dispelling rumors and saying “bad” things about him. He hates that his children will see/hear things. Although he says he is just doing his job, and trying to do it well.  Blah..Blah….Blah…same stuff and different day!

No word from Cindy or Lee Anthony. Caylee still sits in funeral home and no plans have been made for funeral/memorial service. The defense is done with the second autopsy.

And finally, Baez and his team is back out in the scene of the crime, as his motion was granted on friday. I am personally wondering why the team did not go out there right away after prosecution was done. It seems strange that he(Baez) claims that his botanists wanted to look at the spot where Caylee once was so long after everyone is done looking at the scene. Hopefully the prosecution has someone out there with those people, to oversee what is taking place. If any evidense will be found on the part of the defense it will be extremely suspicious!

Perhaps there will be enough pressure from Baez to Casey that she may come clean and confess. Here’s hoping!

Movements in Casey Anthony Case!

On Thursday the judge ordered that Casey Anthony must appear in all the court proceedings that have to do with her case! So Friday morning she must be sitting in court for the 8:30 am call. The judge told the courtroom that “force” will be used on her if that is necessary! She will be whisked away, by herself by way of blacked out windowed Suburban SUV.

Highlight of the case include:

Baez has filed a complaint to have prosecutors removed from the case! (which is extremely ridiculous)

Random people are depositing money in Casey Anthonys’ account so that she can buy things from the commissary.

The $5000.00 dollars was paid out to Roy Kronk by Mark Nejame (former family lawyer for George and Cindy Anthony) The other money that was put up for the safe return of Caylee went back to its donor and was never redeemed.

Other movements in court for Casey Anthony case were that Linda K. Baden was seated at the lawyers table, dressed in a gray suit  coat and navy blue pants Casey  was shackled at the feet and then again at the waist and she sat between Baden and Baez. She smiled at times with them. With her hair in a bun, looking matronly trying to get the… aw sympathy vote……trying hard to humanize the ice princess, which did not work on me!

Baez motions filed to inspect crime scene was okayed. Baez team to get the prosecution removed was denied as was the motion for fingerprints from Equusearch was denied.

No family members came to court for Casey. George did not get released for Halifax Hospital, and no one knows about Lee or Cindy. This feels like this could be a significant thing, perhaps the turning of the tide.

No Jailhouse-Family Funeral for Caylee !

Orange County officials have said yesterday, that in no way will Casey Anthony ever be treated any differently than any other inmate there has been or ever will be.  Therefore, no jailhouse funeral or face-to-face meet with her family. Although the Orange County officials also stated that no one from the Casey Anthony family or the Baez camp had contacted anyone over this matter. They chalk this up to rumors.

In other news Jose Baez has filed more motions. This time it is for all of the fingerprint evidence that he can get his hands on. It was brought up that he may submit another motion to subpoena the records and fingerprint evidence to all the volunteers that were involved in the Equuisearch Team efforts. This is a terrible thing to do, if he does actually request this as a motion from the court. This would take an awful amount of man hours to obtain that amount of evidence. And Mr. Tim Miller also thinks that if this type of thing does happen he is afraid that the people will not come out to volunteer for them anymore. It would be a travesty!  Mr. Miller should charge Baez for the cost it will incur; if this does happen.

Other news, it appears that George Anthony is doing much better, but at this time was not yet released for the custody of the hospital after his attempt at suicide. You have really got to feel for these people. To feel so distraught, that you can see only one way out and that is to kill yourself!  I am  sad for these people and what in the upcoming months they will all be going through! 

And finally notes from all over the rumor mill……Lee is the next one charged, this has been rumored for some time now. We will wait and see what will happen with this. Second, supposedly Cindy Anthony was out shopping for jewelry to put on Caylee for a funeral, nothing else had ever been said on this, it was mentioned!……. The Caylee sunshine doll can still be bought on-line by that shciester! Please do not buy this doll, no missing child organization would support this man’s efforts to line his own pockets. He states that this is a tribute doll to her loss- this is such poor taste!……Casey Anthony alledgedly wiped herself and then stuffed the toilet in her cell with her bible!  Let’s just hope that, that is not true!  If this is, Casey has nothing else left….Sh*tting on the pages of the Lord is the last straw! And that would not be in my eyes, that would be in the eyes of her maker. What else can be said about that?

This is such a sad case and it continues to get even sadder as time goes on. And only time will tell when this poor, tiny angel baby will get but just one day of grace and dignity!

Just my thoughts, just my opinions, and always in a conversationalTone.

Questionable buzz swirling around Caylee Anthony case

There is small noise coming out of the Anthony case of late.  Currently the funeral home that is holding the remains of Caylee still has possession of  her, and no second autopsy has been performed as of yet. It appeared that Baez and his team urgently wanted to do a second autopsy on the remains of Caylee. They immediately filed for the release in which to do the autopsy when the prosecution did theirs. And they were granted that right. But still no second autopsy has been performed. And George and Cindy Anthony will not have a funeral until it is done. So Caylee still lays in wait for proper and decent interment. You would think that Cindy and George would ask their lawyer  Brad Conway to find out what is going on so that they may lay to rest their only granddaughter. It seems a shame that this poor little girl cannot get any respect. To expedite the autopsy would only be the right thing to do, it would be the most respectful and decent thing to do! So what’s the wait?

Changing directions a bit, and on to the video tape of wooded area where Caylee had been located; apparently taped over!  What? Yup. That’s what has been said. Dominic Casey, private investigator and his  cronee, Hoover were out gum-shoeing by themselves so they say! Dom. Casey has been involved with the Anthony family in some way since about July 2008-October 2008(on payroll for the defense). So what gives? Did they actually know before everyone else?  The investigators state that they did not know anything before anyone else!

Leonard Padilla, along with any others believe that there must be some connection between Casey, the jail, and perhaps the investigators. Perhaps Baez?  It has been said that possible connection between the meter reader and defense team/and or Anthony’s? Perhaps a simple tip, or even if just a speculation why not tell the police? Could this bring us to Lee Anthony, who has secured himself a criminal defense attorney, and possible obstruction of justice charges? Lee has stated that he was doing his own P.I. work. and maybe he stumbled on the truth via Casey.

And finally, about two weeks ago I had heard a tidbit  of information regarding the One Tree Hill show.  It was mentioned by other bloggers, but I chose not to blog about it. It was mentioned on the Nancy Grace show just this evening. When the FBI was checking Casey’s computer, just coincidentally, google search revealed the 100th episode of One Tree Hill, the premise of the show was that the  nanny kidnapped the baby. Along with all of the other information that has showed up, ie. the neck breaking, household weapons, and chloroform searches.  Someone in that household was preparing to kill.  I believe it was Casey Anthony. How about you?

Confusing Casey Anthony Case

The Casey Anthony case is getting more and more unusual as the date looms for trial to begin.(Which we all know is delayed)  First and foremost we all are aware that the defense in this case is going to do everything in its power to create doubt in the minds of potential jurors in the Florida area. This case has basically been tried in the public by way of media and the opinions of those representing the media.

Right or wrong the general public should hear any of the potential news that is generated. In this case: because of the high-profile  nature of it and because it involves a little child; the public, the neighbors in the area, and many of us far away in other states have “adopted” little Caylee. She has been part of the lives of the general news watcher for just under seven months. Some people don’t make commitment to a job or relationship for that long! (which of course  would make you a loser with a capital “L”!) This story became one that perhaps in a book somewhere, the main character would make it in the end. Which in the case of Caylee, she would’ve been fine and come home in the end.  But we all know that this story did not have that happy fairy tale ending. In fact this story has had more twists and turns than any mystery novel available. And now this case grows even more confusing each day.

The Private eye who was once working with the defense team as an investigator (who is not now employed by the defense) he is in fact employed by Cindy and George Anthony, allegedly took approximately one minute or so of video tape, he claims at the scene of where the body was found. Where he says no body was there. Huh? Before anyone knew it was a crime scene? Baez is trying to get an order of  attorney client privilege, or to say that this is lawyers “work”, which means this is like lawyers notes, these never come before the court. Why would he do that? Is he afraid of what he will say? Or did Baez know something before we all knew it?  Why did the video not get turned over to the police?

As for Casey’s brother Lee, he has retained a lawyer now. For what purpose? Did he do something or know something? Did he help Casey at anytime? This cannot be over the fact that he did not want to have a polygraph test!

Only time will tell all. We can only hope and pray that the evidence that the Orange County Sheriff,  the Police, and finally the FBI have obtained will put Casey Anthony smack-dab in the middle of everything as all of the circumstantial evidence points now.

For any of the potential jurors out there, proceed with an open mind, try to listen to the evidence, and try to make up your own mind. The day will come when the deliberations will take place; that is one jury I would not like to sit on!
