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.
“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.”
