Casey Anthony: 911 Tapes Played in Court…

May 31, 2011

Cindy Anthony put her head down on the witness stand and sobbed earlier today as recordings of her 911 call to police were played during testimony in Casey Anthony’s murder trial. The call was made after she discovered that Caylee had been missing for a month.

Another call featured today was the jailhouse call between Casey, her mother, brother and friend Kristina Chester.

From CNN:

“We’re talking about a 3-year-old girl,” a hysterical Cindy Anthony says on the call, made July 15, 2008. It was her third call to police that day, but this one was different — made after Cindy Anthony’s daughter Casey Anthony admitted to her brother that Caylee — who was actually 2 at the time — had been missing since June 16 and said the girl’s nanny had kidnapped her.

Also played for jurors Tuesday was a phone call Casey Anthony made to the Anthony home from jail on July 16, following her arrest. In the call, she speaks to her mother and brother and to her friend Kristina Chester, but wants her brother to give her the phone number of her then-boyfriend, Tony Lazzaro.

On the call, a tearful Kristina Chester tries to get answers out of Anthony regarding Caylee.

“I got arrested on a f—ing whim today,” Casey Anthony tells Chester on the call, “because they’re blaming me for stuff that I would never do, that I didn’t do.”

“Casey,” Chester said later in the call. “Your daughter, your flesh and blood, your baby.” But Anthony cut her off, saying, “Put my brother back on the phone. I don’t want to get into this with you. … I haven’t slept in four days.”

Casey Anthony: Cindy Anthony Returns to the Witness Stand; Breaks Down During Testimony

May 31, 2011

Cindy Anthony tried to fight back tears this morning as she described retrieving Caylee Anthony’s favorite doll from a car that prosecutors believe may have held the little girl’s body at some point.

From ABC News:

A distraught Cindy Anthony buried her head in her arms and slumped on the witness stand as she listened to a tape of her daughter, Casey Anthony, calmly tell 911 operators that 2-year-old Caylee, had been missing 31 days.

Casey Anthony can be heard spinning a fresh lie about her daughter’s disappearance on the July 15, 2008 call.

“My daughter’s been missing for the last 31 days. I know who has her. I’ve tried to contact her. I actually received a phone call today…I did get to speak to my daughter for about a moment,” Casey Anthony can be heard saying on the call.

From the Associated Press:

Cindy Anthony testified that the vehicle had a terrible odor after it was retrieved in mid-July 2008 from a towing lot by her husband, George. The Pontiac had been driven by their daughter, Casey Anthony, but the Anthonys hadn’t seen Casey Anthony, nor their granddaughter, 2-year-old Caylee, for several weeks.

In a 911 call, Cindy Anthony described the odor in the car as that of a dead body. But she said Tuesday that it was merely an expression she used and at that moment she didn’t think a body had been in the car.

“I said ‘Oh my gosh. What is wrong with the car?” Cindy Anthony said from the witness stand. “The smell in the car was pretty strong.”
