As the trial of Casey Anthony, accused of murdering her daughter, Caylee Anthony get underway in a Florida courtroom, it seems no one is out of the line of fire of “Who Done It?”
Day 2 of the trial and the defense has thrown Casey’s dad, George, under the bus saying he sexually molested his daughter and helped cover up the death of his granddaughter. “George Anthony took certain steps to make sure he was as far away from this situation and that Casey would end up taking the blame for this,” Baez said. Then it was Lee’s turn; Casey’s brother. The defense said Lee made sexual advances towards his sister Casey and was paternity tested to see if he was the father of Caylee. Then, to muddy the waters further, Casey Anthony’s attorneys even threw her under the bus, saying “there’s something wrong with this girl”
The defenses main theory is that Caylee drowned in the pool. So why would an entire family cover up an accident?? But here’s what strange. I remember being in the house shortly after this story broke, myself and Mark Fuhrman. George and Cindy were taking us on a detailed tour of the house including the backyard where they let very few, other reporters in. They showed us the towering bamboo, the shed that investigators had moved, the gates and 3 other sheds that George says were always locked and most importantly the pool. It was an above ground pool, and Cindy commented, in detail that she remembers that she had left the ladder down the dy after Fathers Day. She was very clear about this as she stated that she always left the ladder up, so Caylee couldn’t get up it but she remembered that day that she forgot, and had left it down. I found it interesting that this came up in court today. Either she told this story to Casey and Casey is using it to make up a new defense or it’s true. Looking at Casy’s track record, she’s not exactly the fountain of truth-be-told.
My guess is that George had no idea what the defense had up their sleeve. And if George Anthony was involved, why hasn’t he been charge with a crime? I can only imagine what’s in store for Cindy. Nice work Casey, you may have murdered your daughter and butchering the rest of your family in trial.
