Funeral for Caylee Anthony is still on hold because…..?

January 8, 2009

Brad Conway, Cindy and George’s attorney says the funeral has been put on hold for now.  He said it is important for Cindy and George to support the state’s motion to limit what the defense can do with the photos of Caylee’s remains.

The Anthonys do not want these photographs released to anybody who doesn’t need to see them. Right now, the only people who need to see them are the state attorneys, the (medical examiner’s) office and the defense,” Conway said. Conway met with the investigators in the case yesterday to make certain they were aware that the family wanted the xrays and photos protected from exploitation.

Baez will argue the state’s motion this afternoon.  He wrote in response to that motion:

“It would create an undue and unheard-of burden upon the defense,”

FBI rep, Nick Savage said about the case,”Everything is going in a good direction, so we’re happy with the way things are proceeding,” FBI representative Nick Savage said.

What is the status on the Anthony’s immunity?  Does anyone know?  I still feel they are waiting to find out if they are going to receive immunity before going forward with the funeral.  The reason being that they will not be able to profit from any books or movies done about Caylee and their family if they are indicted. I don’t buy that  their support of the prosecution concerning the autopsy photos would hold up the funeral.

Someone said it’s because they thinki it’s because they are waiting for the okay from a local tv station to broadcast the funeral so Casey can watch itfrom jail. (that was the stipulation for her to view it) Well, what  tv station in their right mind would turn down an opportunity to receive that kind of publicity?  Would it really take this long to get an answer?

I really wish someone could give a definitive answer as to why, almost a month after finding Caylee’s remains, after the state’s autopsy, and 6 days after the defense’s autopsy, no one seems to be in any hurry to give this child a permanent resting place.

    Thank God you don’t have to bury a body in order for the soul to go to Heaven!!! Caylee’s spirit is where it needs to be but yes, finalize this mess by letting her lie in a proper place. According to what Leonard Padilla stated on NG last night, there is 1.7 Life Time deal on the table that depends on whether the Anthony’s get testify/get convicted or not. If that is true no wonder they want immunity. It’s really terrible how the whole case has come around, greed and selfishness at it’s worst.

    This is ridiculous!!! How about some just plain old fashioned common decensy??? I agree with the video/photo of her remains matter, but that should not hold up any plans for the funeral and burial.

    …because the Anthony’s need more time to make up more lies.

    If the autopsy has already been done,then why the delay on Caylee’s burial?This child has been used even after death.I have never seen such a bunch of low life scums of the earth as I have seen in this case.Money is the root of all evil and its odvious this is what has happened here…They all need to rot in hell….I am not sure how the Anthony’s can live with themselfs,but they will also answer one day too…..What little I have felt for the Anthony’s is no longer there..MY only thought was and still is Caylee.She didnt derserve what life threw at her.George and Cindy want immunity for a reason and I hope they dont get it.Too many hands here in the pot and thats all they think about in my opinion..I hope one day it all comes back to haunt them!Every single one of them that have tried to make something off this baby’s death..I also agree that the video/photo of her remains matter, but that shouldn’t hold up her burial…I am sure there is another reason for that too…

    When is all this going to be about Caylee?
    I hear how everyone involved is posturing to defend themselves against possible incrimination, I see a crapload of lawyers involved, I hear this, that, and the other about immunity, the death penalty, etc.
    What I do NOT hear is, Who speaks for Caylee?
    You know, the girl that got the death penalty just for existing?
    The one whose family cares more about hiding the truth than what happened to a two year old child?
    She is dead, but they use what remains as a tool to provide a defense for a girl who is concerned only about her own worthless butt.
    When doesn’t matter, how doesn’t matter, why doesn’t matter, a little girl was murdered and it is a FACT, likewise her own mother actually lied about EVERYTHING and slowed down the search for her daughter, this also is a FACT, not a guess, not an opinion.
    Casey will never tell the truth, she may not even know the truth now, having convinced herself of an alternate reality where she has done nothing wrong, the point being that we will never hear the truth.
    Put her before a jury anywhere in this country, present the evidence, and her rather un-cute little butt is history, the death penalty would be a slam-dunk.
    I would love to be on that jury, and yes, I would consider ALL the evidence.

    You have to wonder if they already had her little body cremated(sp)If they didn’t like the memorial in their frontyard created by people who love Caylee. I can’t see them having anything or anyway for the public to pay respects. Remember….it’s not about Little Caylee, it’s all about them!

    One would like to think that the As are holding back to protect the family and honor of Caylee. Well,we all know that this is not the case.We cannot give these people anymore credit for being loving towards their family. It is obvious that they are wanting money to cover expenses. If they had approached this situation from the start utilizing services available to them instead of accusing everyone of a conspiracy against Casey things might be different. But they did exactly what Casey did, they went on their own in order to protect Casey from prosecution from the beginning. They should get what they deserve, prosecution for obstruction of justice. I know not of any other people who have been accused of murdering their family been allowed to attend the funeral. Hire a some one to film it and then allow her to view it including the remains, in her jail cell. In fact let it play over and over for hours so she never forgets what she has done.
    Her parents are not worthy of support at this point.

    I think the prosecution and investigators in this case very much care about Caylee, and for them it’s always been about her.

    I know the Anthonys loved this little girl in life–you can see it in the videos and photos, but somehow, just like everything else connected to this crime, they lost sight of the baby. It became about battling the public in their front yard, and finding media outlets willing to help them survive financially, and putting their faces in front of cameras at every opportunity to defend themselves and their daughter.

    And now, I think they have literally fallen over the edge. They’re incapable of rising above their own needs. Cindy is much more concerned with making sure she’s the only one that can profit off her family’s story than with incidentals–like burying Caylee or facing up to the fact that her daughter killed her. (Remember when she found out Lenny was going to host a memorial for Caylee at the Little Econ River? She stormed over there and blathered about how she was the only one that had a right to have a memorial for Caylee? I think that’s how she feels about everything happening now. It’s her main focus.

    Good point Norma. They did try to take care of things on their own, just like Casey.

    I don’t understand the hold up with the funeral. It can’t be financial. Cremations (especially in Florida) are cheap. I am in the Funeral business in NY and in a case like this we would do it free of charge just to give this little angel a proper burial. The grandparents actions really baffle me.

    No, it’s not about the money. If it’s not about immunity, then, it’s just a mystery to me!

    The thought of Caylees little bones lying in a cardboard box is horrendous…I hope she is laid to rest soon. Bless the memory of that beautiful little girl.

    I agree itsamysterytome. 😦

    I for one have not watched Lifetime since I heard about the offer and most likely never will again. The money that has been made by the Family and their Dream Team thus far is sickening. Regardless if it went towards Mommy Dearests Defense. Like every other Individual charged in the U.S.A. she should be made to bare the expense of her representation. Seems like Precious Sweet Caylee is death is still paying the price in death that she did in life. The fact that over $200,00 has been made thus far from pictures to interviews is beyond words. These grandparents can step up and do the right thing for this Precious 2 Year Old Sweet Innocent Angel, but they have to 1st want to put the needs of what is right for Caylee over wanting to save Casey. 😦
