Today, rumor has it that the grandparents will be getting a spokesperson who will be the one with contact to the media and they will no longer be speaking to reporters. We shall see.. So far, it's just a rumor, but they have been very quiet since their visit with Casey yesterday. No interviews on their way back to the car after the visit with Casey. And they both looked extremely distressed as they walked across the parking lot. What did Casey say to them? And what did they say to Casey? It may be quite a while before the tapes of that visit are released. According to the news this morning, an Orange County Sheriff's Office detective said all video of the visits between Anthony and her parents, George and Cindy Anthony, are being withheld "due to a criminal investigative exemption". It makes me wonder if something was said during this most recent visit that gave the investigators some kind of clue. At this point, we wait. We wait to hear something from the investigators. We wait to hear something from the grandparents (or the "spokesperson" they're rumored to be getting.). And we wait for poor little Caylee to be found.
I'm sure everyone has seen the video of Caylee with the book that was taken on Father's Day. I know I've seen it dozens of times, but I had never been able to view the entire video with sound. I found the video yesterday morning on YouTube and was able to watch and hear the child "reading" her book. I don't know why, but the video with sound surprised me. I suppose it's because of some of the things that Cindy has said about Caylee. I expected to be able to understand more of what she was saying as she flips the pages on that book. I have a 4 year old grandson and I'll admit that a year or so ago, some of the things he said were kind of hard to understand, but we did understand him most of the time. Caylee is adorable. But her language skills aren't what Cindy led everyone to believe. Reporters kept asking her if Caylee ever mentioned "Zanny" and other things. If the child's language skills are what this video shows, I doubt if she was able to tell Grandma much about her days with "Zanny" or anyone else. Take a listen and tell me what you think.
The news media have been reporting about the phone calls that Casey made in the days after Father's Day. The "flurry" of calls the afternoon of the 16th seem very odd. Keep in mind that George said in his interview with Greta that he saw Casey and Caylee leave the house that afternoon just before 1:00pm.

They've also been talking about pings on her phone and an area near the Orlando Airport. Orlando Channel 9 has an article up about them finding out that Casey's phone "pinged" out near the airport where there are a lot of ponds and dense woods. What was she doing out there? And where did Channel 9 get the information?
The investigators are playing this whole thing out very close to the vest. They're not releasing very much information and since yesterday's visit, the grandparents are being quiet. Perhaps the investigators had a long chat with George and Cindy about their blabbing to the press about their ideas of kidnappers and how "sources outside the norm" are helping and watching the kidnappers. It's been said that every time George or Cindy would open their mouths about "their" investigation, the detectives would be flooded with calls from all over the country. What a waste of time for them to have to sit there and take those calls about the "kidnappers being watched" or the "tips" that Cindy gets on her cell phone, home phone and emails. I hope the rumors are true about the family spokesperson. And I hope that person will be intelligent enough to not give interviews about what George or Cindy's "investigation" (Perhaps imagination would be a better word.) has revealed.
