Divers searching for the remains of Caylee Anthony on Thursday said they discovered a garbage bag held down by two bricks in the bottom of a river in a park in Orlando that reportedly containing small bones and toys.
But Orange County Sheriff spokesperson Jim Solomons was quick to tell momlogic that the items in the bag "did not appear to be related to the case." The search was led by celebrity bounty hunter Leonard Padilla, whose group found the bag. Padilla, says Solomons, contacted the media before even calling the police when they found the items. "To choose to call a press conference before calling investigators is unthinkable," Solomons says.
Dominic Casey, a P.I. who is working with the Anthony family, agrees. "They have not found a bag with bones -- it appears Leonard Padilla's only motive is to get media attention. They found nothing of significance connected to Caylee Marie or the case. It's just another cruel attempt to cause undue distress to my client."
A rep for the Orange County Jail tells us, "Earlier this afternoon correctional staff reported that during [Casey] Anthony's regular time out of her cell, she was watching off-the-air TV programming when the news came on regarding the developments at Blanchard Park. Therefore, she is aware of the earlier reports related to the search. When correctional staff noticed the nature of the news coverage, they asked Inmate Anthony to return to her cell. I'm told she did so without comment."
