Cindy Anthony’s newly discovered interview
I just listened to the newly discovered Cindy Anthony interview with LE (Aug 4) and it made me want to pull my hair out. I had to keep pausing it to give myself a break from her incessant rambling. It seems that Cindy and Casey share the gift of gab. But, the devil is in the details, and there’s a lot of information here if you can stand to wade through it all. It’s well over an hour long.

This interview corroborates Jesse Grund’s statement that Casey convinced Cindy she’s protecting them all. Cindy said that Amy Huizenga, boyfriend, Anthony Lazarro, and Ricardo Morales, are really old friends though they say they haven’t known each other all that long. THEY are bad people, (not Casey) are mixed up in drugs and God knows what else. AND they know “powerful” people. Somehow Casey got involved in whatever they were doing, and for some “unknown” reason, some “unknown” people have taken Caylee. Because the police aren’t following up on all the leads out there, these people are taking Caylee farther and farther away. Cindy is convinced that Casey is scared–she can “see it in her eyes”. Casey’s trying to give us “clues”, but she can’t really come out and say who has Caylee because that would put not only her and Caylee in danger, but the rest of the family as well. In the same breath, Cindy accuses Jesse Grund of erasing all the info missing from her computer berfore July 15th.
Cindy brings Jeff Hopkins back into the mix–remember him? He’s the guy Casey said she worked with at Universal, and who introduced her to his nanny, Zani. (In reality, he’s a classmate from high school she recently ran into at a restaurant. He didn’t have a clue who Zani was). Casey told Cindy that Jeff was her boyfriend and that she and Caylee were spending time with him and his son to see if they might work as a family. (huh?) Never mind that the week she was spending with Jeff overlapped the week she was at an event with another ficticious Universal co-worker, Caylee, and Zenaida. (Remember the week Zenaida had her wreck?) These were some of the excuses Casey gave her mother for why she couldn’t see or talk to Caylee. Interestingly, the week she spent with Jeff was actually the week that Tony (her real boyfriend) was in New York. And, Cindy manages to get in once again that Casey may be a liar but she’s not a murderer. The lies just weave in and around and it’s a mystery to me how Cindy–who has to be the detail queen of the year, doesn’t notice or chooses to ignore these glaring indiscrepancies.
Today on “Oprah”, Kent Whitaker, the author of Murder by Family, http://www.amazon.com/Murder-Family-Incredible-Treachery-Forgiveness/dp/1416578137/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1223355382&sr=8-1 , was interviewed, and it reminded me a lot of Cindy and Casey. Kent’s son, Bart Whittaker, commissioned some people he knew to murder his own mother and brother. Kent was shot but survived, and Bart even had the assassin shoot him so it would look like he wasn’t involved. The night the murders took place the family had been out to dinner to celebrate Bart’s graduation from college. But, he didn’t really graduate–he dropped out during his freshman year. He pretended for 4 years that he was in school and his family bought it just like they bought into everything else he ever told them. His father said he never suspected his son was the killer. He didn’t believe it even though 2 years earlier police had come to him with information that Bart was planning to murder them. The parents made excuses for why he would make something like that up. Kent didn’t believe it until one of the guys involved in the murder plot caved. Bart apparently never confessed. He had gone on with his life almost like nothing had happened and was in Mexico when they caught him. This family had blinders on when it came to their oldest son. They chose not to believe what everyone else saw clearly, and they paid for it dearly–just like Cindy and George.
I imagine that a similar scenario will have to play out for the truth to emerge in this case. Someone involved or someone in the know will have to come forward for Casey to admit what happened and for Cindy to see the truth. Even then, I imagine she will go to her grave believing someone else was responsible for the death of her granddaughter and that her daughter was framed.
FYI Bart Whitaker was diagnosed a sociopath and narcissist and is sitting on death row in Texas.
