Casey Anthony: Wears Necklace With Caylee’s Ashes Inside

April 25, 2012

Apparently, Casey Anthony wears an ash-holder necklace with some of Caylee’s remains inside. Anthony’s mother, Cindy Anthony, supposedly sent the ashes to the her daughter (and acquitted murderer).

From SheKnows.com:

Explaining that after months of silence Casey finally spoke with her mother Cindy on Skype before she left her California hideout to return to Florida, the authors claim the necklace Casey is seen wearing in a leaked online video diary is actually an ash holder.

“Cindy used the opportunity to ask Casey if she wanted to wear something that had been set aside for her three years ago,” the book claims.

“With Casey’s acceptance, Cindy would send this sacred offering through FedEx. Casey would leave California with a new accessory: An ash-holder necklace with a portion of Caylee’s remains inside.”

Florida’s bar association will investigate a complaint filed against Jose Baez, incurred while he was defending Casey Anthony.

From CNN:

Zannah Lyle, a spokeswoman for the Florida Bar, said the complaint against Baez concerns his handling of when his client — who was acquitted of murder involving the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee — would serve probation for her past convictions on check-fraud charges.

Casey Anthony: Jury Hears Her Interview with Police

June 2, 2011

Jurors today listened to to Casey Anthony’s hour-long interview with detectives the day after Caylee was reported missing back in 2008.

From the Associated Press:

Lead detective Yuri Melich took the stand again Thursday morning, on the eighth day of testimony in Anthony’s murder trial. The Orlando woman is accused of killing her daughter Caylee.

Anthony told detectives Caylee had called her a day earlier, saying, “Hi, Mommy,” before talking about books and shoes.

She also said during the interview that she would never be able to forgive herself.

“My mom flat out told me yesterday she will never be able to forgive me,” Casey Anthony said.

As Melich and another detective peppered her with questions, Anthony said she asked the child to let her talk to an adult, but the phone went dead.

Anthony, 25, insisted she was not lying when she said a baby sitter kidnapped Caylee on June 9, 2008.

Casey Anthony: Defendant Lied About Universal Studios Job

June 2, 2011

Leonard Turtora, assistant manager of loss prevention at Universal Studios, has testified that after he was contacted by authorities, he searched through the Universal Studios employee database and found that Casey Anthony had not worked there in years.

From CNN:

According to testimony, Anthony claimed to work as an event planner at Universal Studios until after Caylee was reported missing.

During the police investigation, lead detective Yuri Melich called Anthony and put her on a speakerphone with Turtora, who testified she insisted she worked there and gave a Thomas Manley as her supervisor. Manley also was not found in the database. During the call, Melich asked her if she was an event planner for marketing or entertainment, Turtora testified, and she said a little bit of both. “I knew that couldn’t be true,” Turtora said.

Eventually, Anthony was forced to own up to the lie after detectives brought her to Universal Studios and met Turtora there. She directed them to a building Turtora said he knew was not an events building.

“Melich began to look around and asked if we were in the events building,” Turtora said. “Ms. Anthony looked at me, put her hands in her back pocket and stated, ‘I don’t work here.'”

Casey Anthony: Defendant Lied About Boyfriend

June 2, 2011

During his testimony, Jeff Hopkins, an alleged “a wealthy suitor”, testified that while he knew Casey Anthony from middle school, her claims of dating him and his introducing her to Zenaida Gonzalez were not true.

From CNN:

Hopkins, 26, said his name wasn’t even Jeffrey Michael Hopkins — the name Anthony had given as a wealthy suitor living in Jacksonville, with a son named Zachary.

Anthony’s mother, Cindy Anthony, previously testified her daughter spoke often about Hopkins, describing him as a former coworker at Universal who had introduced her to Gonzalez, purportedly employed as a nanny for Casey Anthony’s 2-year-old daughter Caylee. The two began dating, Casey Anthony had claimed.

After Caylee went missing June 16, 2008, Casey Anthony stayed away from her parents’ house for weeks, telling her mother she and her daughter were spending time with Hopkins in Jacksonville, Florida, where he lived.

Casey Anthony: “Boobs” Take Center Stage…

June 1, 2011

I can’t remember the last time I used the word “boobs” in a headline of a post…if ever 🙂

Anyways…CNN ‘In Session’ anchor Vinnie Politan apparently forgot that his microphone was on during a live broadcast on Tuesday and in reference to accused murderer Casey Anthony, uttered the words “the only thing you are going to see are her boobs sticking out.”

D’oh! Here’s the video:

From the Daily Mail:

For the former attorney and journalist made the cardinal sin of broadcasting by forgetting his microphone was on during a live report.

On Tuesday, Politan was covering the high-profile trial of Casey Anthony, who is accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter and dumping her body in a swamp, when he made a rather crass comment about her ‘boobs’.

The comment was made during a particularly gruelling day-long testimony of Cindy Anthony, Casey’s mother – in which she broke down several times as she described her daughter’s actions surrounding the disappearance of her child.
