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.
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′.
