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.
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.
