This missing child case gets more and more strange every day. I hardly know what to say about any of it anymore because so much of what Casey, Cindy and George has said to reporters is so bizarre. Yesterday's big news was the release of the search warrant that was served on the Anthony home the other day. The search warrant was very interesting to read as it gives a very good detailed narrative about what the investigators have had to deal with since little Caylee Marie Anthony was reported missing on July 15th. I have been watching the news about the case pretty much since it started, but had never had a complete detailed story of what Casey had told investigators right after the case was reported. I am amazed at how boldly Casey lied to those investigators. It also came out yesterday that Cindy actually "tampered" with evidence! Apparently there were a pair of Casey's slacks, a pair of boots and a pair of shoes in the back seat area of the car. Cindy took those things out of the car and washed the slacks! She said that she washed them because they "smelled like the car", which in the 911 call she said "smelled like there had beein a dead body in it". Hey, Cindy! What the heck were you thinking? Your granddaughter is missing, the car smells of decomp, and you wash the clothes for your daughter?
Then we have "poor" Casey, sitting there all by herself in jail without her "favorite pillow and cover"... (Daddy George is the one that mentioned her sadness at not having the pillow and blankie.. Oh boy..) Her mother, Cindy, cancelled the scheduled visitation with her earlier this week and this morning, Casey's brother showed up at the jail to visit his sister and Casey refused the visit! Check out the news report below from Fox News:
Just before going in to the jail for what he thought was going to be a visit with his sister, he answered some questions from the media. Here's a video of the report, again, from Fox News:
I guess that Casey's refusal to see her brother, Lee, has angered her Dad, George. I just came across another video on YouTube where the reporter says that George came out of the house, apparently with a bag of trash or something in his hand and he more or less threatened the reporters! This video is also from Fox News:
This whole family seems to be unraveling fast. I have to wonder if the whole family is headed for a massive meltdown. And all because of Casey and her "inability" to tell the truth of what happened to Caylee. Caylee's 3rd birthday is tomorrow, Saturday. The whole family bought into Casey's tale that Caylee is ok and will be home for her birthday party and it's looking like they are finally starting to see the lies. And to realize that the chances of Caylee celebrating her birthday with them are pretty bleak. I have to wonder what else is going to happen today. Do we get more from Grandma Cindy? Will we have more from George? Or even Lee? These folks are getting scary....
Update: George's Rant
I have a copy of the video of George Anthony's rant that I grabbed from Channel 6 but it's in the wrong format for uploading to YouTube. I'm going to see if I can find a way of converting it and then I'll add it to the blog... But, you can watch it on the Channel 6 link here.. Or on the Channel 9 link here.
