Why Won't The Anthony's Wake Up?

The stories out of Orlando Florida are so conflicting right now, it's hardly worth trying to write anything about the disappearance of Caylee Anthony. We do know that George and Cindy Anthony did visit Casey Anthony in jail yesterday. There was a bit of a ruckus before the grandparents went in when one of the reporters asked a question about the theory of an "accidental death" and Grandpa George started yelling again. "Shut up! Shut up! Shut! Up!" he yelled... The man seems to be nearly at the end of a rope and his hands are slipping. Cindy and George seem to want to believe that Casey has been telling the truth all along. In a way, I can't say that I blame them for that. If I had a grandchild missing, I would not want to believe that the child was dead, nor would I want to believe that the child's mother was responsible. But, in the face of all the lies that their daughter has told investigators, I can't see how the grandparents can continue their belief in what Casey says.

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.
  • 3:03pm - she calls her dad on his cell phone
  • 4:10pm - she calls her mom at work
  • 4:11pm - she calls her mom on her cell phone
  • 4:13pm - she calls her mom on her cell phone
  • 4:14pm - she calls her mom at work
  • 4:19pm - she calls Tony Lazzaro (ph)
  • 4:21pm - she calls Jesse Grund (ph)
  • 4:24pm - she calls her mom on her cell phone
  • 6:32pm - she calls her mom on home phone
  • 6:33pm - she checks her voice-mail
  • 7:06pm - she calls her mom on home phone
  • 7:20pm - she calls her friend, Amy
So, what happened between the time she left the house and the time she made the call to her father? There's a gap of about 2 hours there. Then there's another gap of an hour and she tries repeatedly to get a hold of her mom, then tries to get a hold of Tony and Jesse. Then there's another gap of about 2 hours and she tries again to get a hold of her mom and then her friend Amy. What is she doing during those gaps? Very odd... And very suspicious, in my opinion.

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.

The Anthony's are in serious denial mode and have most likely sold their story to either the bail bondsman or the new family spokesperson.

Casey will be "lovin' " the new attention when she gets to the safe haus' but this group will not get anything out of her.

I think they should have put Casey in general population, but who knows. Maybe that wouldn't have done anything either, except get her assaulted.

I completely agree that Cindy and George are in denial. Serious denial. They cannot allow themselves to believe that their precious Casey could have done something to Caylee. To think that they seem to believe all of Casey's lies is unreal to me.

lol... As for Casey loving the attention she gets from the bounty hunter and his team, I think she's going to throw one heck of a tantrum when she figures out that they intend to be with her 24/7.

Have you seen anything about the backpacks being found today at the park? Websleuths has some posters who were searching at that park today and they found 2 backpacks and some children's clothing. They called the police and investigators picked up the back packs as well as 3 or 4 bags of other things. I wish there had been a better description of what Caylee was wearing when George last saw her, including exactly what the backpacks that the two of them had looked like.

I just looked at the clip of Caylee "speaking" as she was "reading" the book. She seems to have very poor verbal skills for a child who is/was 2 and a half or thereabouts. I could identify only 2 or 3 words. I wonder if she has/had some developmental delays and if this contributed to her mother's lack of feelings or that Casey used it as an excuse for her uncaring attitude. Maybe Casey did drugs or alcohol while pregant with her? She is/was such a beautiful child.
