Casey Anthony: Car Destroyed in Florida Junkyard

It appears that Casey Anthony’s white Pontiac Sunbird has been destroyed in a Florida junkyard, nearly seven weeks after she was acquitted of murder in her daughter’s death.

From CNN:

An assistant in the office of Mark Lippman — who represents George and Cindy Anthony, who owned the car before giving it to their daughter, Casey — said Friday that the car was destroyed a day earlier. The assistant declined to be named. That the vehicle had been crushed was first reported and documented by Florida TV station WOFL.

The car, and the odor emanating from its trunk, had been central to the prosecution’s case in Anthony’s murder trial.

On June 27, 2008, she abandoned the Pontiac at an Orlando business, saying it had run out of gas, according to testimony. It later was towed to a wrecker yard, where it remained until July 15 of that year, when George and Cindy Anthony got a letter from the yard and went to pick up the car.

    Considering the Options, I would not have expected even The Anthonys to do anything different than this. I believe that this Action shows their Knowledge of Caylee’s last moments IN it, and their Daughter’s responsibility FOR it. And while I’m sure that some Wacko Collector out there would have paid them top Dollar to get his hands on it, getting rid of it this way gets rid of the “Reminder”, as well as ensuring that they’ll never have to see or hear anything about that Reminder anywhere and from anyone ever again— not to mention that it’s as good as washing their Hands of Casey too, since it appears that they are all going their separate ways.

    I think it was the BEST thing for the family to do-WHO needs reminders of that baby decomposing in that trunk?It’s bad enough that they know the daughter is a killer….

    No sympathy here for the anthonys.
    I think we all need to remember the baby in the trunk.
    THAT is the whole point.

    imo That car should have never been destroyed, Casey was freed, who knows that a few years later there may have been evidence not turned up at first. I know she can not be tried again for the same crime, but it could tell that the LE did not do the job right in the first place, they should have wrapped it in protective custody. The Anthony’s didn’t have to ever see it again and you can not destroy the facts of life and death associated with Caylee Marie Anthony.

    Right on OneOp…………

  6. Honeydog Says:

    I actually thought of that same point, OneOp, but I don’t think that Car would have ever served another purpose than what it did, and the Authorities can’t keep or take possession of it now that the Trial is over. I don’t know why, but I kind of feel that as long as it stayed around, Caylee’s Spirit might never be “free”. Do you know what I mean?….

  7. One Op Says:

    Yes, I know what you mean Honeydog, I sometimes think Caylee would like us all to let go and let her have her peace. We are weakened by anger that gets in our soul because as humans we know justice was due her and feel that it was not given yet we do not know what her own Soul asked for as justice. Maybe there never is any needed for the deceased, only for our own relief from grieving over such acts against the innocents. I also think of the difference of Caylee having become such extended focus for myself when there are others such as little Haleigh Cummings that rarely comes to mind, put aside as though she never existed in the first place. The boy that disappeared, Byron, that poor child, what happened to him. At least what happened to Caylee did become known to the world. This is the way I think when up so late! Guess I’m sad and need to get some rest but couldn’t sleep.

    I think of all the little innocent faces that are in the news,,,,,,,,,,we need to remember.It’s our job

  9. Honeydog Says:

    Now that the Car is gone, I think Caylee is “released”.
    I love both your Comments……

    I read that Jeff Ashton is ready to out his book on the Casey Anthony case. I guess this is the first, gets the books rolling, who will be next. Surprised, it is so soon, yet a smart move, because it will be new stuff and people not too bored after reading a lot of other ones first.

  11. Honeydog Says:

    I agree with you OneOp, and I think that of the individuals who we can probably expect to come-out with a Book— namely Casey and/or Baez or even George and Cindy— I’d rather see The Prosecution’s Jeff Ashton beat them all to it. It is a smart move indeed for this one to be the “first”, as it will at least be the Book of “Truths”— coming right out of the Gate with the REAL Story— and no matter who else’s account happens to follow, the one I believe will be taken seriously by its Readers. You can Bet though, that if Baez, especially, is planning-on writing one, he will no doubt use Ashton’s Book to be able to take advantage of Discrediting what was written and try to over-Shadow it. But still, with knowing how both Baez and Casey tried to Deceive us, I think either of their Books would be considered not much more than bad Entertainment in comparison. I believe that Jeff Ashton’s Book will sell. I know I would buy it.

  12. One Op Says:

    Yes, the timing is perfect, we are all still anxious about this trial, so his book will be the hottest story to hit the shelves in a long time. It will sell, that’s for sure.
