George and Cindy Anthony’s trip to California and Casey alone with her thoughts in jail

December 12, 2008

The full article can be accessed here, a little ways down the page:

Sources close to the case told Eyewitness News that Casey’s parents, George and Cindy, may someday face criminal charges. Sources tipped Eyewitness News off that George and Cindy Anthony checked into the luxury Ritz-Carlton Hotel on Thursday night. Meanwhile, Eyewitness News has learned the sheriff’s office is looking into charging the Anthonys with obstruction of justice.Rooms go for about $300 a night at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and sources say they Anthonys had dinner at Normans on Thursday night, where dinner could cost $100 a person.

The Anthonys recently hired attorney Brad Conway to replace Mark NeJame.Conway could not tell Eyewitness News who is paying for the room, but said the Anthonys needed peace and quiet.”They want to be left alone. They want to grieve and go through the process without the publicity that’s been focused on them so long,” Conway said.

The Anthonys have spent months insisting Caylee is alive, but with the news of the remains Conway said they are prepared to accept Caylee may be dead.”They are realistic about the possibilities and about the fact that this is likely Caylee, but continue to pray that likely it’s not,” Conway said.

In the meantime, sources told Eyewitness News investigators are building a case against the Anthonys. They may face obstructions of justice charges.Conway said he’s talked to the State Attorney’s Office and is not aware of any pending charges and maintains the Anthonys have done nothing wrong.”Anytime the sheriff’s office cordons your house and serves a search warrant, there are a potential for charges. I don’t know what the sheriff’s office has in mind, but the Anthonys have cooperated fully and will continue to cooperate,” Conway said.

I personally don’t see anything wrong with where the Anthony’s stayed or ate while in California. (CORRECTION: I MISTAKENLY THOUGHT THE ANTHONYS STAYED AT THE RITZ WHILE IN CALIFORNIA. THEY ACTUALLY STAYED THERE THE NIGHT THEY GOT BACK TO ORLANDO) Obviously the Larry King show payed their expenses-why wouldn’t they take advantage of that?   What I have a problem with is that they appeared on his show at all.The whole thing should just not have happened.  It didn’t help them in any way and actually got on tape some of the out and out lies they’ve been telling.

Casey’s treatment changed after yesterday’s discovery. Casey Anthony remains in a jail cell with no contact with other inmates. After Thursday’s discovery, jail officials said they did alter her treatment.”In fact, there has been a change. She met with a correction officer psychologist and was reviewed and placed on psychological observation. However, that is not a suicide watch,” said Allen Moore, Orange County Corrections Department.Although it’s possible she watched news reports on television Thursday, jail officials said it’s not likely.Eyewitness News has learned Casey’s made no phone calls since the discovery was made and nobody’s asked to visit her.

Of course it’s not a suicide watch.  Casey loves herself too much to do bodily harm to herself. I find it odd that no one has called her or visited her and vice versa. I stated earlier, I would have made a bee line to her jail cell if I were her mother and someone would have had to drag me off her.

AND WHERE”S LEE? Why was Lee’s girlfriend at the house yesterday?*** LE escorted her out. I still have trouble believing Casey did this all by herself.  Maybe not Lee but someone had to have helped her!

***Earlier on Thursday, the girlfriend of Casey Anthony’s brother, Lee Anthony, showed up at his parents’ house but was escorted out. It is not known why she went into the home.( from the following article: local 6 news)

    I read or listened to a report yesterday Mallory(Lee’s girlfriend) was feeding the dogs for the Anthonys.

    I am thankful Caylee was found and can have a proper burial. I don’t watch the Anthonys or Baez, they make me ill.. They should have been there for Caylee. They didn’t need to quit loving their daughter but Caylee is the victim. Caylee was the innocent defenseless child that had her life taken.

    When they brought that car home Cindy started cleaning it out. She knew something had happened to Caylee and Casey was responsible. The 911 call with the dead body, I believe that was because Cindy had the nanny to blame. I wonder what would have happened had Casey said, “mom I accidently killed Caylee?” With all the computer searches in March and TL statement to Casey I believe it wasn’t an accident. Yes I think if the Anthonys helped cover up anything or obstructed justice they should be charged, which I believe they did.

    Wow. Stephanie great response. I totally agree with you. It’s obvious that G & C knew from that day that they found the car that Caylee was gone. I know people hate the Anthonys but no one knows how people can react when they freak out. I am sure they knew all along what probably happened but mentally they blocked it out. There is no reason for Casey to have killed Caylee, either on purpose or accidentally. She wasn’t ready for a baby, she should have been able to put her up for adoption. But, the grandparents did give Casey the best of both worlds, I just don’t think she even appreciated that either. Sadly, Caylee is the one who had to suffer, like it always seems to be, the innocent one in the whole situation between all of the crazy Anthonys is the one who ends up dead. Why?? Maybe it didn’t have to do with the living arrangements at all. Maybe like Casey said to Lee, it was spite. We may never know. Maybe Casey resented her daughter for being in the way of everything. She knew that Caylee was the best thing that ever happened to G & C. She is very immature and needs psychiatric help.

    Cindy neads a lesson on what lying is. Here is a small lesson. I hope that Cindy reads this and takes it to heart.

    A lesson on lying.

    1.If you omit a part of the truth…YOU ARE LYING by omission

    2. If you change the truth in any way as to make it a different story, like stretching the truth or bending the truth…YOU ARE LYING.

    3. If you tell just part of the truth…YOU ARE LYING (again by omission).

    4. If you tell half truths as to confuse or change a story…YOU ARE LYING.

    5. If you pretend the story happened in a deferent way than it happened…YOU ARE LYING.

    You get what I mean. Quit lying and start facing reality. You’ll be amazed that the world will look so different and real. Also, others will not be able to lie to you, because you see things as they are, not as you pretend them to be.

    Pak- You are right, she had the best of both worlds, with one little problem that set this whole thing in motion. Casey was so jealous of Caylee’s relationship with Cindy, she couldn’t stand it.

    Casey is a monster, but in some ways, Cindy makes me even sicker. She makes the pretense of being the heartbroken grandmother, but knows way more than she is saying. I’ve never seen someone so skilled at talking in circles. Nothing she says is worth listening to. She plays the victim here, but you really have to wonder what part she played in this horrible tragedy. I hope she enjoys her time at the Ritz because she may be spending some time in a less comfortable facility really soon.

    I thought the Anthonys flew home to FL yesterday and was met at the plane with the search warrant. I assumed they stayed in FL.

    Well, we are soon to discover the truth about Caylee and Cindy, if not Casey.

    Caylee will speak for herself in the autopsy room, with the forensic investigators.
    Cindy will now demonstrate for us whether or not she has been truly in denial, deceived, deluded all this time. If so, she will surely have some kind of nervous breakdown in the face of this awful, inescapable truth. If she has, as so many believe, really been trying to cover for Casey, an accessory after the fact, she will no doubt have a story all ready for us…

    Well I can tell you one thing for sure. They didn’t make enough on Larry King to pay for all of those Hight Priced Lawyers and Doctors they have now! Henry Lee and a couple others don’t work for free.

    It makes me sick everytime I see Baez on TV, I can’t stand listening to him.
    That New Baden Person on the Defense Team is not any better.

    I know Casey has a Right to have her Defense, that doesn’t mean I like it the Way they twist everything around.

    There has to be Justice for Caylee in the End.

    And don’t give me that BS it may been an Accident, it was premeditated and I hope the Prosecution will prove that.

    C & G didn’t show up for the 2nd Interview with Larry King tonight.

    They were advised not to do the Show under the Circumstances. That in Fact makes Sense, not much in this Case does.

    They did stay in Florida Stephanie–I had my days confused. Sorry. My head cold is causing me to have major brain farts. (At least that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!)

    Here is a senario to think about…perhaps my husband and I sent the Anthony’s our vacation fund to spend as they wish..and if we did that would be nobody’s business but our own.
    LOTS of talk shows put their guests up in hotels…that is not obstruction…it is curtosy!

    Could someone please explain to me why absolutely EVERYTHING the Anthony’s do or don’t do is anyone’s business?

    Sandy…I hate to single you out but I get sick everytime someone assumes they know exactly what is in Cindy’s or anyone elses heart other than their own.
    I will be the first to agree that the denial and their defense Casey has not helped them or Caylee in the least…I too have been irritated by how this all unfolded…but I would never be so cruel as to say “She makes the pretense of being the heartbroken grandmother”
    The fact is…you nor I have any clue as to what she knows or doesn’t know…so what gives you the right to assume to know what she is feeling?

  18. December 12, 2008 10:54 pm

    I wish I had known about blogging when going thru menopause. What a great way to get rid of ones frustrations. Sandy, I wont single you out because you have a right to your opinion. Since I am not the moderator of this blog site, I will just try and have respect for all the others.

    Ahem! Now with that out of my system… I used to feel sorry for Cindy Anthony when this case hit the media back in July. You could see her heart was ripped out when she lost Caylee. She mourned her granddaughter in that first month but then things changed. I witnessed a woman who was trying to spin the truth and who became a ‘bully’, not only to the media, law enforcement, her husband, Tim Miller, Leonard Padilla, Mark NeJame and others.

    When the truth comes out, I think we will all see the ‘grieving grandmother’ versus ‘mother of a murderer’ I believe Cindy truly loved Caylee with all her being but when the ‘almighty dollar’ was to be made, Caylee seemed to take the back seat. IMO Kidfinders and the Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation INC..notice I put the INC in caps..came in real handy. Cindy knew Caylee was deceased, denial uh uh…Caylee sitings all over America and no attempts on their own to check them out. Oh yes, they went to California to check out a siting and just happened to end up on Larry King…more $$$

    It’s A Mystery…thanks for letting me vent.

    I agree with you DWilliam,we are all entitled to our opinions, that’s what this is all about.

    I think you are right on the money on Cindy, it has become all about the money. If you read her past family,history that was the problem that caused their financial downfall in Ohio, they lost the Dealership after about a year,plus there home, that’s when they packed up and started over in FL. George has not been much of a provider,sure that has a lot to do with how she views money. She now sees a chance to make some REAL money and is not going to pass it up.

    Where they stayed in Calif. would have been taken care of by the LK Show and no one is saying anything about that. Thursday night they were back in Orlando. Maybe it is none of our business how they spend their money,IF THEY HAD ANY, but neither are employed,and what people are objecting to is the living the high life, as tho they were celebrities, all due to Caylee’s death. BLOOD MONEY! C&G don’t think things through.

    Maybe they are going to try something different this time and listen to their advisor??? This has to be a record for Cindy not saying anything.

    D is right. Everyone is entitled to their opinion–good or bad.

    I personally have gone back and forth with my feelings about Cindy. I’ve felt extremely sorry for her and I’ve been extremely disturbed by things she’s done. I think she’s made a step in the right direction by not appearing on Larry King tonight and by following the advice of her attorney. I don’t know if she’s done anything illegal–I do know she’s lied–and if she has I think she should have to suffer the consequences of her actions just like anybody else would.

    Monica-You’re right, it’s none of our business how the Anthonys spend their money–UNLESS the money they are spending was earmarked for Caylee. Then it is everyone’s business that they are exploiting her to better their lifestyle. By creating a foundation and by operating through a “Help Find Caylee” group, they have accepted donations that were specifically earmarked to help in the search. It’s illegal and immoral for them to use that money for anything else. IMO, it’s no different than Casey stealing from Caylee’s piggy bank and bank account. Actually I think it’s worse.

    Mystery,I think we are. I t is none of my business how they spend their money as I said, but they do not have that kind of money. If they were wealthy it would be normal to stay at the Ritz,but since the A’s are not wealthy it becomes a treat, a reward, something for them to enjoy.I don’t know how they could treat themselves to a high priced dinner at Howards, like they had something to celebrate,that was what I was saying, I think most people just hearing the news that a body had been found and may be their missing granddaughter would find it extremely difficult to treat themselves to fine dining, I would think it would be difficult to eat period,and why the $300 dollar a night room?? It just seems an odd way to act in lieu of the news they had just received.

    Cindy seems to be a very material woman,that and one that wants others to perceive her family as the perfect one,she has a problem with the truth,and reality,she has shown this right up to present time,this is another phase of it,she has had the celebrity treatment,and now desires the life-style, and if she is using the money that was given for Caylee, you are right Mystery, it’s the same as KC stealing from Caylee’s piggy bank. It is using Caylee,it is GREED!

    Well here it goes, just my Opinion ok…

    I am just like many of You I had mixed Feelings about G & Cindy at times.

    In the Beginning I felt horrible for them and couldn’t even imagine what they must go
    through but as time went on, their Behavior in Front of Everyone to see really frustrated
    me to no End.
    They have made so many contradicting Statements in front of the Media which angered so many People.

    At the same Time the way I feel right now, it is Time to set aside our Anger for G & C
    and let them grieve and deal the Best they can with the Fact their Granddaughter is dead ( yes I do believe it is Caylee they found)

    I am sure they both are paying dearly now for whatever they did wrong or whatever Part
    they played for that Tragedy to happen, by that I mean, maybe they could have done a lot
    of things different when raising Casey, that is not an Excuse for Casey to murder her Child/

    Make no Mistake Casey made the Decision to kill Caylee.She is the only One responsible for her Death but that will come out in the Trial.Every One in Life has Choices, doesn’t matter how You were raised.

    C & G have pretty much the Confirmation that their precious Granddaughter Caylee is dead and will
    never come back to them. They also I am sure know their own Daughter did murder Caylee, even
    if they still have trouble believing that.

    Their Life has changed forever, it will be without Caylee and Casey.

    Little Caylee loved her Grandparents and they did love her, that we do know.

    As for Casey, I am sorry I have nothing good to say about her, I believe she will have to take
    the Consequences for what she did to her own Child and the Truth All of it will come out in the End.

    I feel Cindy is the type who will never consider that she did anything wrong and that includes the way she raised KC. When she has been confronted with facts of KC. lying, she calls them little mistruths,when she stole money from J Grund,she said he was lucky, it was just that one time and not that much. If you read Cindy’s own mother’s e-mails to her along with her brother Rick, they both advise Cindy to let KC. take the blame for what she has done. They refer to how KC. has always been a thief and liar. Cindy will have some excuse for KC as to why this happened, that is if she agrees to believe that it is indeed Caylee. I don’t look for Cindy to change the way she has been, this in part because this is how she is and was before this all happened. This is a family that lies to each other and thinks there is nothing wrong with it. George lies to Cindy,afraid to tell the truth of how he lost so much money and the kids lie if they think it is to their advantage. To change now would mean to change a life long way of life.

    I’m sure Cindy and George loved Caylee,and whatever grieving they have or will do will be put to the back of their minds, KC is the one who needs her, and she will be there trying everything she can to try and save her no matter what we think she has done.

    well, it is Caylee’s remains, and there has now been two searches into the Anthony’s home by Orlando Police. They have somekind of linksfrom the crime scene. I wonder what it is? I belive there has been obstruction of justice on the part of Cindy(washing Casey’s pants) after finding smelling the decomposed smells in the car, as well as providing the wrong toothbrush of Caylee’s. If it were my granddaughter, I would want closure. I belive the Anthony’s knew Caylee was dead “we’ve lost her”, Cindy told George. But the idea of justice for little Caylee at the expense of their daughter was just toomuch for them initially. Now the money making comes into play. Where did George get the huge truck with the picture on it “HELP FIND CAYLEE” come from? Did they buy this truck after the child went missing? If they had financial problems, where’s the money coming from?assets that after all is said and done should be donated as the stuffed animals in front of the Anthony’s home. And the supposed sighting of Caylee? Why have these stopped. This was all a ploy to cast doubt about little dead Caylee to save CASEY. I guess I’m cruel, but if my daughter killed my granddaughter, that would be IT> No MORE Concealing the Truth
