Who gets a tattoo celebrating life when they claim to be desperately hoping their child isn't dead?
Momlogic's Momstrosity: There's already so much evidence in the case of 2-year-old Caylee Anthony, the little girl found murdered, with her own mother, Casey, accused of the crime. There's residue of human decomposition in Casey's car, the Google searches for chloroform on her computer, and the pictures of the young mother participating in a nightclub's "Hot Body" contest.
But it seems none incriminate the 23-year-old woman more than a tattoo she got during the month she claimed to be frantically searching for her daughter.
People often commemorate events in their lives with a tattoo, but Anthony chose a tattoo, written in Italian, with the upbeat phrase, "the beautiful life." Months ago, the original sketch of the tattoo was submitted as evidence. Now prosecutors, after filing a motion to photograph the actual tattoo on Anthony's shoulder, have been granted permission from the judge in the case.
The tattoo could certainly be considered not only as exhibit A, but as exhibit A-Z. How is it possible that any mom could get a tattoo celebrating life when their child had been missing for almost a month? Bobby Williams, one of the employees of Cast Iron Tattoos, the Orlando, Florida, establishment that inked Casey, was equally shocked. "The fact that Casey acted like any normal customer that day [she got the tattoo]," said Williams, "only goes to show you never know who has some kind of skeletons
in their closet." And what a sociopath Anthony is -- never shedding a tear for her daughter.
The only excuse for getting a tattoo would've been to get one that said, "Help me find Caylee."
Of course, we're all waiting to hear how Casey's attorney, Jose Baez, and his spin crew are going to explain Casey's reason for getting the tat. Maybe nonexistent nanny Zenaida Gonzalez made her do it?
