Casey Anthony-murder suspect
It’s becoming more and more apparent that no one–not her parents, not her brother, not her friends, not her boyfriends, NO ONE really knows Casey Anthony. She appears to live in a kaleidoscope world, where everyone she comes in contact with gets a different, fragmented, albeit colorful, view. The broken shards of her personality constantly shift to suit whatever situation or person she’s dealing with.
To her oldest friends, she’s the harmless, quirky Casey that, “Oh yeah, ha, everyone knows Casey lies. That’s just her, ya know? Drugs? No never! And, she’s just a great mom! No way would she hurt her daughter on purpose! If something happened to Caylee it had to be an accident.”
To her new friends, she’s the hip, party girl Casey. “Sure, she does some drugs here and there-but not a lot. Yes, she exaggerates the truth sometimes, but, hey, as far as we could tell she’s a great mom! I mean, she used to bring Caylee to parties and put her to sleep on the couch–Man, that kid could sleep through anything! Ha Ha.”
Then there’s her family– “Ok, yes, she’s a liar and a thief, and yeah, she might be a sociopath, but that doesn’t make her a murderer. One thing we know, she loved Casey.”**
It seems no one in her circle of friends and family think she could possibly have murdered her daughter. All think she could have accidentally killed Caylee–except Cindy and maybe George. Casey apparently convnced them she sold Caylee. I still don’t understand how, even if they really do believe that lame story, (and to believe it you would have to believe someone else’s dead body was in the trunk of her car), they could allow her to remain under their roof. How does selling her child instead of murdering her make Casey worthy of her parents defense? I’m tellin’ ya–Cindy needs a psychiatrist more than Casey does.
So, they all say Casey lies, and in the same breath, everybody says she couldn’t maliciously harm her daughter. But EVERYONE was fooled by Casey about pretty much EVERYTHING in her life. (George may be the exception. He appears to have given up dealing with anything that has to do with Casey a long time ago.) And why wouldn’t they have been fooled by her? She was good! I mean, this girl even sent imaginary emails to herself from her imaginary work! The question is how could they believe her NOW? If no one really knew her, if she lied about every last detail of her life, then it’s a mystery to me how any one can be sure she was a good mother when she was alone with her daughter. How do they know she wasn’t capable of murdering Caylee? They didn’t know about anything else–how do they know “good and loving mother” wasn’t just another prop in Casey Anthony’s bag of tricks?
In my previous post, “Did Casey Anthony accidentally kill her daughter?”, I really felt she couldn’t possibly have murdered her own baby. I look at my own children and grandchildren and couldn’t even fathom that thought. After reading some of the comments people wrote in response to that post who believed she could indeed have murdered her child, and after plowing through all the new information that was released by LE over the past few days, I’ve changed my mind. The fact that she was searching missing children websites as early as March, the chloroform searches on her computer, that she took her belongings from the house but not Caylee’s, and for me, the biggest red flag of all–Caylee’s favorite baby doll (she called it “Mama”) left behind in the trunk of the car, has convinced me otherwise. That baby doll is the most compelling argument of all for me. One of my sons had a favorite blanket when he was little. He was inconsolable if he ever left it anywhere, and I can remember once driving 25 miles back to my Mom’s house to retrieve it after she babysat him. It broke my heart that it broke his heart. It breaks my heart that Caylee’s baby doll was left behind when Casey did whatever she did with her little body. She couldn’t even be bothered to put that doll in her child’s arms.
The police named Casey Anthony as a suspect in Caylee’s murder today. I’ve joined the ranks of those who hope they go for 1st degree murder.
