Early Life & Biography
All that is known of Casey is that she was born on 19 March 1986 in Ohio, United States. It is said that she was a victim of sexual abuse by her own father and developed cognitive psychological disorders thereafter. Her parents are George and Cindy Anthony, and she has a brother.
Caylee Anthony was a two-year-old who lived with her mother and maternal grandparents. Mysteriously, she went missing and her grandmother Cindy reported it to the police. What ensued was a tragic drama, where Cindy’s account of her grandchild’s whereabouts contradicted with what her daughter Casey was saying. Cindy even let detectives know that there was a suspicious rotten smell in Casey’s car.
The mother out of nowhere blamed their nanny of kidnapping the child, but none of what she said seemed to add up. Finally, on 11 December 2008, the skeletal remains of the toddler were discovered from the nearby woods, wrapped in a blanket. Casey Anthony was charged with first-degree murder of her daughter.
The crime was so excruciatingly painful that the incident took an international turn with people across the world following the trials closely. Casey was tried for homicide, and the trial lasted from May to July 2011, presided over by a jury. The prosecution said Casey was indeed the mastermind behind the murder, relying entirely on the evidence that was gathered and forensic reports.
But the defence lawyer, Jose Baez, argued that the child had in fact drowned in the family swimming pool, and George was responsible for disposing of the body. The case kept swinging from one direction to the other, with Roy Kronk, who actually discovered the remains of Caylee, being framed by the defence as the murderer. Casey’s incongruent statements were just proof of her troubled childhood and not proof enough to say she was concealing the murder.
As there were so many conjectures on the part of the prosecution, the judge ruled in favour of Casey for lack of substantial evidence. She was charged for ambiguous statements and for lying to investigators, but given she had already served a jail term, she was freed.
Five years post the trial news came to the forefront where Dominic Casey, one of the investigators opened up about the investigation. He alleged that Jose Baez was aware that Casey actually murdered her daughter and hence planned the defence accordingly. Given Casey did not have too much money, she apparently paid her lawyer through sexual favours. The case has never been reopened.
It is rumoured that Casey Anthony is dating a regular guy. She is also probably expecting another child. Some news channels have reported her saying that she thinks this will be her second chance at setting things right.
