Casey Anthony: Lee Anthony Takes the Stand…

June 1, 2011

Lee Anthony took the witness stand this morning and told the court about his unsuccessful efforts to find his sister, Casey Anthony, during the month while Caylee went missing.

From Fox News:

Lee Anthony testified on the seventh day of Casey Anthony’s murder trial that he tried to track down his sister at a nightclub, by text messaging and by telephone calls in early July 2008 but was repeatedly unsuccessful.

Brother Lee Anthony was the latest family member to testify in Anthony’s trial. Her mother, Cindy Anthony, broke down in tears on the witness stand Tuesday when prosecutors played a 911 call in which Cindy Anthony reported her granddaughter missing.

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.”
