There is blame to be placed on the grandparents (Cindy and George) for a few things. Ultimately, only one person killed Caylee, and that appears to
be Casey, but there are things that this dysfunctional family did all along the way that led to a situation where a psychotic person made a deadly
When Casey was pregnant she denied being pregnant until she was over 7 months. Her uncle, grandmother and others, when they saw her at 7 months, knew
instantly she was pregnant, but Cindy said she was not and couldn't be because she hadn't had sex. It was a matter of just a week or so after this
family get together that Casey finally came clean and said she was pregnant. So a nurse (Cindy) couln't tell her daughter was 7 months pregnant.
In addition, Casey is said to have wanted to give the baby up for adoption. Cindy would not allow her. Casey was 19 years old at the time of
Caylee's birth. She was emancipated. But we see here that she was unable to make a major decision in her own life. To be quite honest, the only
RIGHT thing I've heard Casey do is when she considered giving the baby up for adoption. This tells me she knew she wasn't ready for motherhood.
But this dysfunctional family, and this domineering mother, Cindy, won the battle.
So I have daughter that finds out she's pregnant at 19 and she comes to me and says "Mom, I want to put the baby up for adoption." While I would
talk to her about the long-term emotional implications, the non-reversal nature of the decision, the doubts and wonderings, etc. that would be in her
life going forward if she did this, I would do nothing but support my daughter in this decision.
But it has been speculated that Cindy has done everything in her power for maybe all of Casey's life to make sure the world looks at Casey and
Cindy's family as picture perfect. That's probably why she so readily accepted the lie Casey told that Caylee's father was killed in a car wreck.
Didn't even push to know exactly what the name of her grand-daughter's father was. Because Casey's lie(s) helped Cindy pull off her lies - lie of
denial and problems. Everything is perfect here.
So, not only did Cindy refuse to let Casey adopt Caylee out (and Casey not act like a grown up and do it anyway), but then, once Cindy has gotten her
way, she then begins to consistently (this is backed by Lee's statements to LE) bust Casey's chops for not being a good mom. Well, Cindy, you get
what you ask for. If I were to talk to my daughter into keeping a baby she outright told me she was not ready to mother, I would have to go into that
situation knowing full well, my daughter is most likely not going to be the primary caregiver. You can't have it both ways. You can't force,
through guilt and emotional manipulation, your child to take on a baby when they don't want to, and then expect them to just wake up the next day and
be super mom. You have to be ready to be mother to the child. But instead it appears Cindy continued to use emotional abuse (and that's what it is
when you constantly say things like "Caylee is the best mistake you ever made") and beratement as some form of trying to get her cake and eat it to.
i.e. I want my grandbaby, but I want you to be a mother....because that's what a good family is supposed to look like.
Not only did George not follow through on the concerns he had when he smelled the car at the impoundment (i.e. call the cops), but he went back to
work knowing already that Cindy was removing items from what could be a potential crime scene. He later admitted to LE that "he knew what that smell
was" because he had smelled it in past homicide cases he had been involved in. But he just went back to work and left the car sitting in the garage
with Cindy-the cleaning lady, who subsequent washed the pants Casey may have been wearing when she killed Caylee, and the doll that was found in the
car. There is no telling what else she either washed, threw away, destroyed, etc. As late as the night before the body was found George was on Larry
King saying the smell in the car was from pizza. Even after it had been confirmed in LE documents, including the analysis on the trunk, that there
was never any pizza present in the car. And after George had already had his interview with OSCO stating the smell concerned him and that you never
forget that smell [of decomposition].
There has been significant talk that none of the Anthonys, George, Cindy or Lee, are out of the woods yet on possible obstruction charges. In what
could be perceived as an admission that they were working against the LE, as soon as the body was identified as Caylee, G&C, through their latest
lawyer, requested full immunity and committed to "helping the LE in the case against their daughter". But as late as 2 days ago, Cindy was still
doing indefensible things such as texting people and telling them (because they had previously voiced concerns Casey may have done something to
Caylee) that they wouldn't be invited to the memorial and that she [Cindy] was supporting her daughter because Casey never did anything to harm
Caylee. So if they are assisting LE, Cindy is still up to her alleged old tricks of falsely portraying her family as the Cleavers.
What I found curious during the latest hearing is that Bozo Baez, lead attorney for Casey's defense, requested all DNA and fingerprint evidence
collected on G,C&L...are we about to see a family start accusing each other? While the DNA evidence makes sense to me (just as a matter of due
diligence in reviewing the DNA evidence of the trunk), why in sam-hell would Casey's defense team need fingerprints on her parents and her brother?
No reason at all unelss they are going to attempt to match a fingerprint on the evidence at the scene of the body to one of the members of the
The name has now been released on the LE who did a half-ass search of the scene on August 12th. His last name is Cain and as far as we know he is one
of the few men in Orange County who was NOT boinking Casey. Concerning the dog search in the same general area. Two out of three of the meter
reader's calls in August were dismissed without search because the area had been previously "cleared" by dogs. But no details have ever been
released on that previous dog search to my knowledge. If some one has that information, I would appreciate you sharing it. So we are left not
knowing what specific areas were "cleared" along that road in a dog search. If the search was not at that specific location, but in the general
area with a description of the area search made in a rather non-descript fashion, the particular location may have never been searched - i.e. "area
at Hopesprings and Suburban searched and cleared"...well, that leaves you with 4 corners of an intersection, and what would in effect be up to 1/2
mile on either side of the road going in all four directions, on both sides of the road, from the intersection. Can we be sure this specific location
was actually diligently searched by the dogs? I'm not sure we can until specific details of the dog search are released.
I personally doubt it was, and this is why. Reporting from WFTV made clear that the area where Kio Marie said they hung out as kids is NOT the exact
location the body was found in. It is actually across the road and closer to the elementary school. So if the area referred to by KM is where they
cleared with the dogs, it most likely did not include this specific location.
Concerning the meter reader - unless I misunderstood, when he made his three calls in August, on three consecutive days, I believe he called three
different agencies. He first called 911. 911 instructed him to call the Crimeline. He didn't want to, but when he was not contacted back after the
first call, he called the Crimeline the next day. On the third day he called the OSCO. Short of calling the FBI I don't know who else he could have
called....maybe if he had called WFTV it would have been busted sooner. Sad state of affairs to think that might be a true statement.
Concerning Caylee's remains. As reported by the local Orlando news agencies, the body has been fully released to the Anthonys for some time now. It
is not LE holding up the memorial, but the Anthonys (and possibly the defense team).
