What Are Caylee's Grandparents Hiding?

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Cindy and George Anthony's credibility could be called into question.


If you knew your child was a murderer, wouldn't you do anything in your power to save them from life in prison or possibly the death penalty? OK -- what if it meant misleading the media or tampering with evidence? What to most people is just a hypothetical question of morals is very real for Cindy and George Anthony, parents of Casey Anthony, the mom from Central Florida accused of killing her daughter Caylee.

Should they be charged with obstruction of justice?

From the onset of the investigation into the disappearance of their granddaughter, the Anthonys have changed their story, morphing them from angry parents who hinted at their daughter's guilt into a loving mother and father who desperately defended her. Questions of their involvement in the disappearance became more numerous when their house was searched -- and investigators hauled off massive amounts of evidence -- after the remains of what's thought to be Caylee were found less than a quarter mile from their home.

To date, the Anthonys are not suspects in the case. Cindy, George and Casey's brother Lee have all been fingerprinted to rule out their involvement. The Anthonys' attorney Brad Conway stressed his clients are not being investigated but added, "If they do get charged, we will be prepared to aggressively defend them."

Although Judge Jeanine Pirro doesn't believe that at this time there is enough evidence to indict the couple on obstruction of justice charges, she does believe the Anthonys have known that Caylee has been dead for some time and are now attempting to protect Casey. "I don't think that there is any question that George and Cindy Anthony are circling the wagons around their daughter Casey," she says.

Charging someone with obstruction of justice rather than an attempt to mislead can be extremely difficult, explains Pirro,. "You must prove they [George and Cindy] knew something beforehand," she says. "For now, no one can be sure how much of the truth they know because the entire Anthony family has -- up to this point -- declined to take lie detector tests."

Below is a sample of inconsistencies in the Anthonys' comments and behavior:

The Hairbrush
In July, emails obtained by WFTV-Channel 9 suggest Cindy Anthony could have knowingly given the incorrect hairbrush to investigators who wanted a strand of Caylee's hair for DNA testing. In the email written to Larry Garrison, her spokesman at the time, Cindy says, "I never lied, I just never went to the bathroom to get the hairbrush I used for Caylee."

The Pants
Allegedly, Cindy Anthony washed a pair of Casey's pants that were left in the car after the Anthonys picked up the car from the tow yard.

On the topic of the pants, Cindy's brother Rick Plesea berates his sister in an email written in late August: "You have to be a moron to destroy evidence with washing pants that smell like a dead body."

The Smell in Casey's Car
From the moment Casey's car was picked up from the tow yard, it apparently emitted a very strong smell. Investigators concluded that it was consistent with the smell of a decomposing body.

Cindy alluded to it in her second 911 call July 15:

There's something wrong. I found my daughter's car today, and it smells like there's been a dead body in the damn car.

Then while speaking to Eyewitness News in August, she changed her story:

There was a bag of pizza for like 12 days in the trunk of the car full of maggots. It stunk so bad ... you know how hot it's been.

George Anthony seemed convinced the smell in the car was a decomposing body when he spoke with investigators in July:

I've been around that stuff, I mean the law enforcement stuff. We caught people out in the woods, out in a house in a car. So I know what it smells like. It's a smell that you never ... get rid of.

Then on "Larry King Live" on December 10, he had a different explanation for the smell:

My professional opinion is I never really realized how long it would take garbage to smell for 19 days or 18 days inside of a car in Florida.

The Pictures of Casey Partying
The images of Casey partying at Club Fusion showed the young mother drinking and dancing allegedly during the same time frame that Casey told investigators she was searching for her daughter.

During Cindy's appearance on the "Today" show in October, she said the pictures were not relevant to the case:

Most of the pictures happened before June 16th.

On "Larry King Live" in December, Cindy told Larry King the pictures we used for promotion for Club Fusion:

Those are photos that they used to entice other people to come into that club. She would have gotten paid for that photo. So, in fact, she was working.

What do you think? Do you believe George and Cindy could be indicted for obstruction of justice or are they just spinning the media?

Is it possible that one of the Anthony is actually the father of Caylee?

Yes. This is possible.

Most unfortunate, but certainly…possible….and there are also many, many hintings at this theory.

As far as Cindy and George Anthony lieing to the police and media…. Where do you think Casey gets all her lieing from. An apple does not fall far from the tree!!!
They knew perfectly well that Caylee’s rotting body was in that trunk FROM DAY 1 …
George knew it the moment he got near that car…. and even Cindy’s brother emails his sister and states that she tampered with evidence by washing Casey’s pants that smelled like a … WHAT??? A DEAD BODY !!! How did he know this information? He wasn’t there and he never was near the car !!!

So Cindy Anthony even expressed to her own brother that there was a dead body smell in that car AND on Casey’s clothes that she left in her car. Like mother like daughter… lies… lies and more lies !!!!
I guess Casey got good training in lieing and trying to cover up the truth .
And why would Cindy Anthony’s brother say that to his sister … about tampering with EVIDENCE??? What evidence???? They weren’t Zanny the Nanny’s pants…. THEY WERE CASEY’S PANTS!!!! So what evidence is he talking about and evidence against WHO???

The evidence … the pants….the same pants Casey had on the day she decided that the back yard was not such a good place to put Caylee’s body , MAYBE IT STARED TO SMELL UP THE WHOLE BACK YARD…so she digs Caylee up and puts her in her car’s trunk untill she could find another place to put her daughters body. A place that no one would smell this poor baby’s body as it decomposed in a plastic bag. But by the time she digs her up the decomposing body has started to liquifly and as she moves the body the body fluids leak out onto her pants and spill into her car’s trunk carpet.

We will NEVER get the truth from the Anthony’s… Now is their time to prove to their daughter, Casey, that they love her more than Caylee… something Casey had a huge problem with… not only with her family but also with the guy she broke off their engagment with casuse she stated to him that she was breaking their engagment because he love Caylee more than her.

And think about the phone conversation to her mother, brother and then her friend when she is in jail and calls to get her current boyfriends tele # …Casey states to her friend that she see’s that it was a total waste in calling them because ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS CAYLEE!!!!

I’ve always thought it was Cindy. No doubt Casey is crazy, but I think Cindy definitely had her hand in the whole situation. She needs to go to jail too.

I understand that the grandparents are very distraut over the whole situation. As they should be.

My prayers go out to the entire family and hope that they find the closure they need.

I just don’t believe the grandparents or the brother deserve immunity. If you are trying to find a beautiful little girl to begin with, you wouldn’t give conflicting statements to start.

I believe the brother and the grandmother of Caylee knew more than they were saying.

May the angels watch over this beautiful little girl and give her lots of love. I am quite sure the grandparents and family will never truly get over this, but I pray that they find comfort somehow.

As for Casey, may she get everything she deserves! I have always believed that everything you do comes back to you ten fold.

May you rest in peace Caylee, Gods littlest angel.

I just want to tell George and Cindy that my heart goes out to them at this time. I want them to know this. Whatever that has happened they have lost a beautiful grandaughter and their home has been torn all to hell. Please give them a break so that they can bury their baby. My daughter was murdered by her husband six years ago. She was only 21 years old. I understand somewhat they are going thru. This is a cruel gutless world. Pray for this family they need our help not our rath.

Either Lee was incestuous with his little sister and fathered Caylee and Cindy the witch convinced Casey it was all “part of the same family” or George fathered the child….with the same response from Cindy about it…the way George slipped in the interview about being afraid that his daughter oops grandaughter was what he would find in the trunk leads me to believe HE is Caylees father….just wait

Emory Demech January 13, 2009, 3:33 AM

Cindy Anthony knew her daughter well enough to think something was wrong with the smell of Casey’s Car,Caylee’s body decomposing.Casey is a murderer and her parents are obstructing justice. It doesn’t make a diff if it was their daughter. A murderer is a murderer and the parents have to bear witness to the facts that Casey was a no good mother. Why protect her,does anyone think that if Casey gets out of this that the family will be one big happy clan,they never were happy with Casey’s & she caused numerous arguments inside the house from day 1 over Casey not being a fit mother. Casey sure knew it because it was forced upon her by her mother. The Anthony’s have a lot of skeletons in their closets.

I believe the parents are between a rock and a hard place Although giving authorities the wrong hair brush should get Cindy something fined, weekend jail something.
But the rest of the things are mostly done by two tramutized people who dont want to believe that there daughter killed there grandchild.
As a grandma myself I can tell you I would not want to be in there place.
We, who are standing on the outside can see a little more clearly the evidence against casey but imagine if you were george and cindy and had these facts what inner turmoil they must be going through

for the good of the memory of that little girl.

I also think George is Caylee’s father also and the whole family knows it. That’s why they tried to hide it from other family members. George and Cindy are so afraid that Casey is going to tell all. That’s why they leave her have her way all the time. George used the suicide so the heat would get off him. If he was going to kill himself he wouldn’t texted everyone and wrote a five page suicide note feeling so sorry for himself and what he did. This whole family sick they can think up anything fast to try to cover their tracks. This is why Casey took this out on this sweet child Caylee never had a chance at all!

Lisa April 18, 2009, 10:22 PM

This case is all most BS anymore. The prosecutor has no evidence or motive against her. I dont think she did this at all. I think they need to be looking for the killer him or herself

Mary April 24, 2009, 9:30 PM

Has anyone noticed how Casey follows Cindy’s moves? When Casey told Cindy that Zenaida had an accident, it was Cindy who mentioned Tampa General Hospital, and Casey had said: That was where they took Zenaida and her sister. Also, once Casey was home, before being arrested, it was Cindy who asked her “Who took her?” That’s when Casey came up with that Zenaida kidnapped her. Cindy also planted the idea that Casey didn’t go to the police because she was protecting them. That was during the taped video between Casey and her parents. I don’t understand why Cindy isn’t being charged with obstruction.

The Anthony’s do not want justice for the death of Caylee even assuming Casey’s guilt. This is so rotten of their thinking. Now I know Cindy has had a lot of bad influence on Casey. It tells one what kind of person she is. They are PHONEY & SICKENING to listen to them anymore. It’s as if they are trying to tell the public that the murder of Caylee was a family matter and Casey can be forgiven by her mom & dad. This is what they want and it isn’t normal for a family to think the way they all think. They all need to be committed, they are dysfunctional and have been or this murder would not have taken place.
