Casey Anthony's Shocking Revelation

Why is Casey's defense team changing its story?

casey anthony

Despite claims as recent as Wednesday that missing toddler Caylee Anthony is still alive, mom and accused killer Casey Anthony's defense team now has a new story.

In a 30-page document sent to prosecutors, her lawyers argue that if Caylee is dead, "it was almost certainly a tragic accident." The documents state Caylee could've been poisoned by chloroform or she could have died while she was sedated. Their bottom line: The cause of death may have been an unwitting overdose of a sedative.

Huh?

The documents describe Casey as confused, possibly even depressed. They say Casey's behavior had been erratic ever since Caylee's birth and especially in the months before the little girl vanished. Also that Casey's lack of emotion after Caylee's disappearance is proof that Casey is not normal and could be suffering from mental or emotional stress.

Why the new story? Reports say Casey is trying to avoid the death penalty.

• The defense says the death penalty is not an appropriate sentence in Casey's case because she is a young mom and has never had a criminal record. However, the documents never mention that a babysitter had kidnapped Caylee, the story Casey has used -- until now.

Even more shocking: In an attempt to evoke sympathy for Casey, her lawyers plan to show the jury photos of her as a baby. The photographs show Casey, 22, as an infant, playing with her brother Lee, and surrounded by family members.

Tell us -- is Casey Anthony mentally ill? Should she be spared the death penalty? Comment in the momlogic community.

She deserves the death penalty and should rot in hell. Selfish girl, and her parents are the ones who are mentally ill, they should be walking those wooded areas looking for there granddaughter, and smacking their their daughter around for the TRUTH!!!!

I am truly amazed at the amount of people that appear to know the Anthony’s so well and have been around them all their lives and witnessed them raising their children and also have all the inside information regarding Casey and Caylee. I as a mother of 3 and grandmother of 5, personally know first hand what it is like to be in a similiar situation. It is the worst nightmare of any parent and grandparent. My heart breaks everyday. I hope and pray that all the people that “know all about everything - but nothing about anything” never have to face anything like this in their lifetime. I can truthfully tell you that what a child (young or adult) does or does not do IS NOT THE PARENTS FAULT. Unless you have your child in a bubble and/or sheltered from daily living….you truly do not have COMPLETE control over them every minute of the day and night. You can only teach them right from wrong, love them and discipline them and teach them morals and ethics….but they do have a mind of their own and they use it. Let’s turn the table here and look at an opposite type of situation. Let’s look at a set of alcoholic/drug addict parents, that neglect their children, don’t show love and perhaps are abusive…it has happened many many times, where the child has been able to overcome their rearing and gone to college, become successful, loving, non-using individuals. Now tell me….did those parents have anything to do with that childs actions…NO, they did NOT. That child had a mind of their own and acted on it. Oh, and one other thing…about the media and people in general…they NEVER get the information correct…even the slightest details are more often wrong than right. Remember playing telephone in class when you were younger??? A simple sentence/statement, when repeated by 25 classmates, was totally different and wrong by the time it got to the last person. I heartfully wish that the public would stop condemning Cindy and George and Lee…they are all going through #$%& right now and will for the rest of their lives. They are all probably very close to having a nervous breakdown. They did NOT do this…yes they may seem to be acting irrational to you…but honestly put yourself in their shoes….bet you WOULDN’T be able to handle it. They will NEVER live a normal life again and yes they will probably continue to support and love Casey even if she is convicted. They will HATE what she has done…but they will still LOVE her. As far as Casey goes…leave her in the hands of the judicial system. We have no right to judge her unless we are chosen to be on her jury…in which case all the facts and evidence will be presented in truth. The victim here is Caylee…a perfect innocent little child…so wherever she may be…you can be sure that God is taking very good care of her and he will see to it that justice is served. TRUST ME!!!

CONTINUED FROM ABOVE:
The Anthony family will NEVER live a normal life again. As far a Casey is concerned leave her to the Justice System. We have no right to judge her unless we are chosen to be on her jury, at which time all the facts, forensics and evidence will be delivered in truth. Unfortunately, the victim here is Caylee….a perfect sweet innocent little child…and wherever she may be right now….one thing you can be sure of is that God is taking very good care of her. He will see to it that justice is served. TRUST ME!!!!

It now seems the grandmother -sidestepped the FBI investigation by not providing the evidence they asked for.—They asked for Caylee’s hairbrush-she knowingly give them a different on—whoops—what did she try to hide—and the washing of the soiled clothes that stunk?????
If the little one was so important to her—why?
Casey might have od’ed her child—tragic—but why not call 911 immediately —sorry GUILTY—sedating one’s child is not accidental—it is planned and if it went awry—Guilty
no excuse—and the grandmothers seems a little wacked also—

shirley November 28, 2008, 8:40 PM

go to tangelo park. I am a psychic. have been for 30 years. i communicate with those passed on. especially children. a woman walking her dog will find caylee. the grave is shallow.and her hand is exposed.when they find her she is to have her doll her grandmother gave her.

Barbara December 7, 2008, 9:30 AM

I have followed up on this case from day one and thought Casey should burn in hell but lets stop and think about this, first she did not want the baby and her mother Cindy made her have it, and note the way Cindy lies I think Casey grew up with a lier mother and that was normal to her and George being a former ploice officer seems to jump at everything Cindy says he only tells all the truth when hes alone.Casey should go to prision and Cindy will keep up with all her bull and tell George what to say and do. Caylee is an Angel and we all love her!

Barbara December 7, 2008, 9:45 AM

Just to add on to my previous comment the women in prision will make sure Casey gets whats coming to her and Casey will wish she was dead!

Jacob December 7, 2008, 1:15 PM

Hell, she deserves the death penalty! All evidence points to her, plain and simple. Her parents are in denial but the truth is she poisoned her child and took care of her remains.

Jennifer December 8, 2008, 2:16 PM

Casey Anthony is in fact guilty. Whether she is labeled a “liar” or “mentally ill” does not matter, the fact is that she killed her daughter. I find the relationship between Cindy and Casey Anthony very odd. Casey is being allowed to dictate the fate of this case. If she doesnt want to answer a question, Cindy Anthony simply says “ok”. I think it’s time to abandon Casey’s ship and come to terms with the evidence in this case.

My own son was killed by a person or persons unknown, but at least whoever was involved, unlike Casey Anthony, had some shred of humanity. They deliberately left clues that led us to my son’s body. This is Caylee’s own flesh and blood and yet she’s still willing to leave her own child’s remains carelessly and selfishly to the elements plus deprive her parents of the closure they need as they’ve lost their only grandchild. Casey’s given no more regard for that child than she would to a turkey carcass left over from Thanksgiving dinner. Accident or no accident, the fact remains that this young woman shows no emotion and can calmly weave elaborate self-serving lies and unflinchingly try to pass them off as truth. Just the fact that there appears to have been planning and much forethought into Casey’s actions leaves me with no sympathy for her. George and Cindy Anthony would have to sleep with one eye open if Casey were ever released from jail. How could they not fear for their own safety after watching their daughter’s complete lack of empathy for her own baby. Casey might just decide they need to be out of the way as well at some point. If killing her own child hasn’t affected Casey Anthony, what on earth would stop her from doing the same again for profit or out of desperation? To the person who posted the comment that only God can judge, that’s true, but society also has an obligation to protect it’s members from someone who displays a complete lack of respect for human life. At the very least, she should never be out on the streets again.

This case really makes me sick. I think the defense strategy is to call reasonable doubt with if only one juror by making these ridiculous azz claims that Caylee is still alive. Okay if she is still alive then why the hell has noone claim the award. Shame on these crazy azz parents for attempting to confuse the United States of America! The video tapes tell a story- while the mother is speaking with her crazy daughter, notice how her father is staring off into space. The know damn well this baby is dead. She is dead at the hands of her mother. All these sightings of Caylee is a well planned defense strategy to cause reasonable doubt. If the grandparents are still looking for her, then she must be alive, even though noone has come forward. There is a 250K award out there—-noone has claimed it. If she was in the mall as the video suggests—then why wasn’t it called in. This family really really makes my blood boil

Now that the remains were found near the grandparents home, Casey was at least once, telling the truth when she said “:she felt Caylee was nearby”. One truth out of many lies. Hope she gets what she deserves.

julie December 11, 2008, 8:12 PM

I think she ought to spent her life in
prison and get think every day about her
beautiful daughter and what she didn’t

body to set and rot in prison and there
life terrorment them

THIS IS AMONG THE MOST HORRIBLE, EVIL, SELF-SERVING OF MURDER STORIES EVER HEARD. THIS NARCISSISTIC SOCIOPATH DESTROYED ONE OF THE MOST DIVINE OF GIFTS TO HUMANITY. THE MURDERER DESERVES LIFE IN PRISON SO THIS MEMORY, WHATEVER IT IS TO THAT PERSON,PLAYS ITSELF OVER AND OVER. NOW THERE WILL BE BESTOWED UPON HER THE NON-SITUATIONS ROBBED FROM THAT SWEET BABY. NO LIE OR FACADE SHE GENERATES WILL BUY HER SUPPORT OF HONEST, THICKING, PEOPLE AFTER THE LIKELY CONVICTION. OUR COUNRTY HAS BECOME MORE ASTUTE RE FORENSICS AND POLICE/JURORS WILL WANT HONEST/COMPLETE/THOROUGH JUSTICE SERVED DURING A FAIR TRIAL. LET THOSE DEFENSE PEOPLE BE IGNORED FOR THEIR SMOKE AND MIRRORS TACTICS. CONSERVATIVE FLORIDA JURORS WILL NOT BUY INTO THAT CRAP DISHED OUT. CASEY’S LIES ARE OVER WITH AS WELL AS HER PARENT’S ENABLING OF THE SPOILED MOSTER WOMAN THEIR OWN DISHONESTY/INABILITY TO ACCEPT TRUTH. THIS IS EVIDENT IN FAMILY DYNAMICS..THAT THEY CREATED, HOWEVER UNINTENTIONALLY. THEY LOST A GRANDDAUGHTER BY WHAT IS LIKELY A LIFETIME OF COVERING UP FOR CASEY… AND NOW LOSE HER ALSO TO A LIFE BEHIND BARS OR WORSE..

sue December 15, 2008, 4:56 AM

Casey knows fully well what she has done.Thats why people lie, they know right from wrong.She is a murderer,as far as im concerned,i have no pity for her , im sorry! My heart aches for what Caylee may have gone through. And i feel Cindy is a liar as well, and has obstructed justice, and should be penilized also.

SANDRA December 15, 2008, 2:15 PM

Are Narcissus made or are they borned? This girl is 22 yrs old and has a child and no visable means of support. Who was furnishing her car, cell phone and credit cards. She was not asked to grow up by her parents. They just gave to her. She should have had a full time job and be in school working part time. If the parents had not supported her bad behavior thing might have turned out differently. I thought it was very telling when on 48hrs the grandmother told houw Caylee was a breath of fresh air or something to that effect and that SHE CONTROLLED THE HOUSE. Huh! I bet Casey CONTROLLED THE HOUSE before Caylee was borned. Don’t think grandma needs to be raising any more children. It think narcissus are made not borned. It also shows in the parents behavior that they will believe andy wild story that Casey comes up with. Not good parenting all children lie any parent that says their children do not lie is living in a dream world and not the real world.

cathy December 16, 2008, 5:13 PM

Casey is a sociopath for sure, but that
does not make her not responsible under the
law, shame on her for putting her family through this and sending them on wild goose chases, when she knew all along that the child was less than a mile away from their house in a garbage bag…..they should put her in general population and save the taxpayers the expense of a trial, they don’t like baby killers in prison……

Pam December 16, 2008, 6:32 PM

Very strange. I feel so bad that the parents have had to stand by someone they know has killed that little angel. I had post partum depression also when I had my 2 children. It is a difficult time, but I never went out to party and play and steal. I just sat around and cried all the time. I dont believe she has any mental illness. She is the she devil. The sad part about it, her parents know it.
