Casey came into the limelight after she was accused of murdering her daughter Caylee Anthony
On July 15, 2008, the story got heated when Cindy Anthony, the mother of Casey Anthony, informed the police that her granddaughter had been missing for 31 days. They were living in Orlando, Florida, from where Caylee got missing.
According to Casey’s father, George Anthony, Caylee was with Casey when she left home on 16 June 2008. But Casey claimed that she was too busy with her work assignment and her daughter was with a babysitter, Zenaida Gonzalez’s Zanny, which turned out to be a lie.
Investigation shows that a woman named Zenaida exists, but it does not show that she had ever met Casey, Caylee or any other family member. Once George went to the town yard to recover Casey’s car and found a strong smell coming out from the trunk of the car.
Later, he believed the smell must come from a decomposing body. However, George found only a bag of trash in the trunk. At that time, Casey confirmed that her daughter had been missing for 31 days.
It also confirmed that the smell of a decomposed body from the trunk was none other than Caylee. After seeing the decomposed remains in Casey’s car, she was suspected to be the murderer.
What really happened to Caylee Anthony? Different Stories
According to the defence lawyer, Caylee drowned in the family pool during the daytime, and Casey and George Anthony were unaware that she was in the pool. When they found Caylee’s body in the pool, they panicked and tried to cover her death.
But on the other hand prosecution’s lawyer painted a different series of events; according to him, Casey used chloroform on her daughter and tried to suffocate her by putting duct tape over the toddler’s mouth and nose.
The jury deliberated on Casey Anthony for ten hours during her trial. Casey Anthony was charged with first-degree murder, aggravated manslaughter, aggravated child abuse, and four misdemeanour charges.
The law enforcement officer charged her with four misdemeanours for providing false information and hiding the truth.
According to the investigation of Detective John Allen
Detective John Allen is a former sergeant with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office criminal investigations division.
Both the detective officers supervised the investigation into the death of Caylee Anthony. But Detective Yuri Melich initially believes that Caylee was probably being hidden somewhere from her grandparents. The consternation between Cindy and Casey can be why she hid Caylee’s body.
When the detective officers towed the car to the forensics bay, it smelled like a dead body. At first, they did not believe it, but when they listened to the 911 tape, they knew we were looking for a live child.
When detective Melich was doing the arrest paper, Casey Anthony sat with her. Casey Anthony had no guilt as a parent who lost children; she was behaving differently. The detective also mentioned that Casey only talked about her wishes to be a personal trainer. All the conversations were about Casey; as a parent, she didn’t talk about her missing child.
As you know, in any interrogation, you try to extract as much truth as possible and give them a reason to tell the truth. They tried hard to remove the fact from her, but there was no difference.
What does the Medical Examiner have to say about the situation
According to Dr Jan Garavaglia, retired chief medical officer for Orange and Osceola counties, looking back ten years, what was appealing was not the truth and how the lies were allowed were not even backed up by any evidence.
It had been happening for more than ten years, and it was the first time he had to deal with it in society. According to him, truth doesn’t matter; if you even tell lies loud enough, people will start believing you.
As a medical examiner, it is not acceptable. We must examine the body and come up with the actual cause, why, how and manner of death. We can’t put our thoughts based on the autopsy or what just the body shows. We deeply examine the scene, the circumstances at the time, and what’s going on preceding the death.
And we are examining a case of a child who is not reported missing. The grandmother filed the missing report, and no one knew where the child was and what had happened to the child.
The body of the child has been hidden. The body was thrown behind a rotting log a couple of blocks from her house, but before throwing, the body was put in two plastic bags and then in a canvas bag. Duct tape is also used that’s still present on Caylee’s face.
Seeing those things together made it clear that this was a homicide. No proof can change the Prosecutor’s mind or prove that it is an accidental death.
In Caylee’s Anthony case, science took a backseat to the truth because no evidence was shown that it was an accidental death.
Casey’s mother Cindy Anthony, also shared her thoughts on the murder
Casey’s mother, Cindy Anthony, In a rare interview on Investigation Discovery’s Crime Scene Confidential, Casey’s mother, Cindy Anthony, says that she hired an investigator who helped to recover the body of her granddaughter.
