Lee Anthony’s attorney says Lee did NOT use Caylee funds inappropriately

December 27, 2008

leeThomas Luka, attorney for Lee Anthony, said he wanted to squelch the  rumors that surround the donated money Lee Anthony collected in the search for Caylee.

Since mid-July, when Caylee was first reported missing, thousands of dollars have been donated by strangers wanting to help locate the toddler.  At one point, Lee was accused of using some of those funds inappropriately.

“There was no impropriety.  There is a cloud of impropriety and a cloud of rumor that I think has been fueled by the non-expenditure of the funds, that has been following Mr. Anthony around,” said Luka.  “He wants to make it clear that no money has been improperly used.”

Luka said financial statements from the fund were made public, linked to a memorial website in honor of Caylee. (go look at the website:  What is listed is one deposit slip for $1763.53  to close out the Sun Trust account on Sept. 26, and one other deposit on 9/25/ for $230.00. That’s it!  No withdrawals are disclosed at all, and no other deposits are shown!)

The Anthony Family has said those donations have paid for everything from flyers and t-shirts with Caylee’s picture to HELPING LEE IN HIS OWN INVESTIGATION. (What EXACTLY did Lee do with the funds he used to carry on an investigation independently of LE?  Why was Lee Anthony conducting his own investigation in the first place?  He’s not a professional investigator–he has no LE background?  What made him think he could find something the professionals couldn’t?  I’ve always thought that was a little strange–and suspect.)

“Again, when this investigation first began, we the public did not know who was responsible for Casey’s disappearance.  Mr. Anthony was going under the assumption she was kidnapped.  He investigated that angle first and foremost.” (again, WHY?  Why didn’t he just turn over any suspicions or information to LE?)

There is still money left in the Help find Caylee fund,  but Luka would not say how much.  “As far as I know, the money will be returned to the senders or individuals who have paid it.” (Luka might want to check that out or at least talk to the Anthony’s attorney–I thought their attorney said the Anthonys would be donating that money to a charity of their choice–they just haven’t decided which one yet?)

While you’re at it, read the Trust Agreement also listed on the Help Find Caylee website below.  I don’t know if that’s standard or not, but it’s pretty loosey goosey if you ask me. (I know, nobody asked me—

I’m not sayin’ Lee did anything wrong here, I’m just sayin’ it would be easy for someone to use the funds for the wrong reasons.  There don’t appear to be any real restrictions as to what exactly the money could be used for.  And, no checks written were disclosed–just checks deposited.  For all I know, no checks were written, but according to the Anthony family they used the donations to “help pay for everything from flyers and t-shirts with Caylee’s pics to helping Lee’s investigation. Doesn’t that mean there were withdrawals made?  Just askin’)

    Whoa! Wait a minute here…I thought Cindy Anthony came on television and when asked about Lee Anthony’s whereabouts he was busy, busy, busy working at his real job, which required traveling all over the place. Hmmmmmm…..yep, I’m sure I heard her say that! So begs the question, what investigation was Lee doing, and how? If your working all the time, how are you investigating? These people just blow my mind with their stupidity. They have all told so many lies that they can’t even keep up with what they have said on live television…

    I’m glad you did that Rebecca. Maybe they can shed some light on the blue dress. I still don’t think it could have anything to do with caylee’s death, but you’re the investigator, not me!

    Rebecca thinks the blue dress holds a clue to what happened to Caylee. She’s a bounty hunter from Ok City, and traveled to Florida to search. She has a hunch about the blue dress.

    Does she think that Casey wore it out one night and that is the night she put Caylee in the trunk and did whatever she did to her? I remember hearing on the news that Cindy had washed some clothes of Casey’s that were in the trunk…washing away evidence.

    Yes, something like that, although I think there were several days between when she wore the dress and Caylee’s disappearance. Rebecca is just sure there will be evidence of some kind on it. She hasn’t posted in a while so don’t know if she gave up on her idea or not.
