Twelve facts about Casey Anthony, accused of murdering her daughter, Caylee.

12 Things about Casey Anthony


Three-year-old Caylee Anthony was last seen on June 15, 2008. She was reported missing a month later, on July 15, by her grandmother, Cindy Anthony. Her remains were found by utility worker Roy Kronk on December 11, 2008. Her mother, Casey Anthony, was indicted for first-degree murder on October 14, 2008. To this day, she claims Caylee was kidnapped.


The name of Caylee's father remains a mystery. Casey claims he died in a car accident.


All three generations of women in the Anthony family have the same initials: C.M.A. -- Cindy Marie Anthony, Casey Marie Anthony, and Caylee Marie Anthony.


An estimated 1,100 mourners -- most of whom never knew Caylee -- paid their respects at a memorial held at the First Baptist Church of Orlando on February 10, 2009.


NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" featured an episode inspired by the Casey Anthony saga, starring Hilary Duff as a young mother claiming her toddler was kidnapped.


In March 2008, according to investigators, Casey Anthony did Google searches for the words "shovel," "neck breaking," "peroxide," "acetone," "household weapons," and "chloroform."


In the weeks after Caylee's disappearance, Casey reportedly got a tattoo that reads "la bella vita," which is Italian for "the beautiful life."


On August 20, 2008, Leonard Padilla, a bail bondsman, posted Casey's $500,000 bail. He says he thought having her out of jail would aid in finding Caylee, but he turned on her when she proved uncooperative. He made frequent appearances on television talk shows in the following months, offering unflattering commentary.


According to investigators, Anthony's claim that Caylee was kidnapped might have been inspired by an episode of the popular television show,"One Tree Hill."


On January 23, 2009, Casey's father, George, allegedly attempted suicide because he longed to "be with Caylee."


Casey is housed under the category of "Protective Custody Level One" in the Orange County, Florida, jail. She takes all of her meals in her cell and is allowed out one hour per day to exercise, shower, and make telephone calls. Her cell is 12.5′ × 7′.


In June 2009, a copy of Casey Anthony's high school yearbook sold for $500 on eBay.

The whole story of Caylee Anthony has me confused. On Cindy Anthony’s My Space she wrote the following…on 7/3/08….(edit-Cindy has deleted her MySpace account)

my caylee is missing
Current mood:… distraughtShe came into my life unexspectedly, just as she has left me. This precious little angel from above gave me strength and unconditional love. Now she is gone and I don’t know why. All I am guilty of is loving her and providing her a safe home. Jealousy has taken her away. Jealousy from the one person that should be thankfull for all of the love and support given to her. A mother’s love is deep, however there are limits when one is betrayed by the one she loved and trusted the most. A daughter comes to her mother for support when she is pregnant, the mother says without hesitation it will be ok. And it was. But then the lies and betrayal began. First it seemed harmless, ah, love is blind. A mother will look for the good in her child and give them a chance to change. This mother gave chance after chance for her daughter to change, but instead more lies more betrayal. What does the mother get for giving her daughter all of these chances? A broken heart. The daughter who stole money, lots of money, leaves without warning and does not let her mother now speak to the baby that her mother raised, fed, clothed, sheltered, paid her medical bills, etc. Instead tells her friends that her mother is controlling her life and she needs her space. No money, no future. Where did she go? Who is now watching out for the little angel?

That’s well known that money makes people disembarrass. But how to act when one does not have cash? The only one way is to receive the loan and commercial loan.
