Casey Anthony’s diary entry 5 days after Caylee was last seen alive

February 18, 2009

diary-entry-june-212

diary-entry-03

Thanks to one of the posters (thanks, Bogart!) for pointing out that the photo of the diary page is shown in full on WFTV.  In the upper left hand corner is -’03-  She questioned, and rightfully so, does that mean this diary entry was written in 2003?  If so, my question is, why was it included in this document dump? As Mixologist, another blogger,  pointed out it could also mean day “3” in the 31 day countdown of hers.

TRANSCRIPT OF DIARY ENTRY:

EVERYDAY IS A BRAND NEW BEGINNING

CARPE DIEM  –seize the day–

I have no regrets, just a bit worried. I just want for everything to work out okay.

I completely trust my own judgement & know that I made the right decision. I just hope that the end justifies the means.I just want to know what the future will hold for me. I guess I will soon see — This is the happiest that I have been in a very long time.I hope that my happiness will continue to grow — I’ve made new friends that I really like. I’ve surrounded myself with good people — I am finally happy. Let’s just hope that it doesn’t change.

    Wow! Really a bizarre entry if you consider her child was “missing” at that time, wicked entry if you consider “she had killed Caylee”.

    Were there other released entries of her diary?

    From what I have read of the descriptions of these new releases entries, especially with items found with or near Caylee & items removed from the Anthony house . . . to me it is saying Casey did not care if she was caught or not.

    Hold the phone! I have a question maybe someone can answer . . . I went over to WFTV to see about these newly released documents, I was curious if there were other jouranl entries . . .looking at the picture WFTV provides you see right above where Casey wrote the “Everyday” of “Everyday Is A New Beginning” a ” ’03” that is underlined . . . now I am unsure but I have to say that is the way I write the ending to a year . . . could this entry be from a journal of hers that was written in 2003????

    If Casey dumped the body on the 18th, then made the journal entry on the 21st, the ’03 could be signifying that was day 3 after she dumped her? Who knows what goes on in that mind of hers?

    Hey Mix – I agree 03 was probably the beginning of the count to 31 days. She had to keep track of that weird number in some way (rather than just saying Caylee’s missing for about a month – always 31 days).

    Oooh, I’d LOVE to read that entire diary.

  11. mixologist74 permalink

    Yeah, just saying because of that whole “timer55” thing too. She had to keep track somehow.

    I updated this post to include the full page from the diary. Thanks for pointing it out. You’re right, it could be day 3. We’ll just have to wait for clarification.

  13. February 18, 2009 1:29 pm

    If this was ’03, she would be 16 and writing that?

    Hmmmmm…. Well, the entry makes a lot more sense to me if it were 2003. I mean, even for sociopath Casey that was pretty cold stuff to write 4 days after the death/loss/murder of her daughter. I kept looking at it, wondering if someone else had faked it. I’ll bet that it is from 2003.

    Now the question is, did WFTV intentionally put that out there to rile people up, knowing everyone would assume it was June 21 of 2008?

  17. MAND permalink
    February 18, 2009 1:41 pm

    I think the other pages would reveal if it’s the date of the year or the countdown. As T said…she would have been 16..so that’s not right..at least I wouldn’t think so.

    Does it really matter if the journal entry is from ’03? If you take everything that has happened over the past few months…really look at the big picture…she didn’t tell anyone her daughter was missing, she partied like a crazy woman while she was supposed to be looking for her daughter, she lied to investigators about anything and everything she could, not once has she acted like a mother whose child was missing, there was decomposition in her car, and now the duct tape, heart sticker, garbage bag and laundry bag that was found at the scene that matches the items taken from the Anthony home…..there is only one conclusion to come to…she is quilty as hell and she is caught!! One of the first things I thought of when the new information was released was how there was nowhere that Mr. Baez could take this case and have her found innocent! the spokesman for Jose Baez came out and sad that the evidence was investigated with ‘junk science’….I wonder if he would think it was ‘junk science’ if they were trying to find the murderer of his daughter or granddaughter? The evidence doesn’t lie, no matter how much Mr. Baez and his team says it does….Casey Anthony murdered her daughter and she is going to have to spend the rest of her life in prison for it.

    I think the “03” was the date she wrote – May you ALWAYS be Blessed & may you ALWAYS Bless others – I believe June 21 was of 2008…she’s one sick puppy

  20. Vic permalink
    February 18, 2009 2:32 pm

    JoJo, Baez doesn’t have to prove that she’s innocent. He simply has to give one juror “reasonable doubt” that she is not guilty. Those are very different things in the legal system. Sadly, when I hear about how many people are still supporting this unbelievably selfish and wicked person (paying for her legal fees, sending money to the jail, etc.), I’m worried that it will be too easy to find just one idiot to say she’s not guilty.

    Mixologist74: What does “timer55” mean? I must have missed something somewhere.

    She is entitled to an attorney, and she has one (far better than most can afford that is broke like her) She is entitled to a fair trial. It’s just a shame so much of this evidence points back at her. She is entitled to that as well, after all she left it all there.

  26. friendlymom permalink
    February 18, 2009 3:23 pm

    Everyone is entitled to a fair trial and legal representation. We are all aware of this, as our wallets are still stinging. No one is suggesting she is any less fortunate. She is even worthy of prayer, and I am praying for her soul.

    And Vic, you are so correct. It only takes one juror to say they are not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt. But you know what, she may fair better staying behind bars. She doesn’t have too many friends anymore, but many enemies.

    She did come back home after her Mother found her. She probably wrote in the diary at Tony’s, while snuggling with him watching movies.

    All I can say is, Annie appears to have been right. Casey is not very smart. Someone with 1/2 a brain wouldn’t have left this much evidence around.

    No they would not, and they would have tried to go farther from home. Even dogs are smart enough not to s@#t where they sleep.

  31. February 18, 2009 3:47 pm

    Wow, this is quite disturbing…I hope they are getting what they need to convict her….I mean the simple fact she didn’t EVER report her daughter missing and her mother did screams guilty to me…. I am a mother myself and i couldnt imagine such a thing….

    As for this diary…..I think the 03 might be the day countdown… i mean if it was the year 03′ then she must be keeping all her diaries because that was 6 years ago… where any more diaries found with this one?? I can’t keep something I had last week let alone 6 years ago!! kinda weird to me she would keep it that long unless she had all of them…..

    I dunno itsamysterytome, they are saying the trash bags and tape came from the house as well as toys and the blanket…and spousdly the sticker..(not sure about that tho)…. i wouldnt be surprised…

    she doesnt really come out and say anything…except i am happy with my decision, no regrets, and i am happy…. what could she be talking about?

    She has those “special” sayings written on the first page, maybe ’03 is a reminder of something special in that year. Like the first time she swung from a stripper pole or something?

  37. friendlymom permalink
    February 18, 2009 4:57 pm

    Of course she wanted her gone. Why else would she go and party it up like she did? She is evil at its finest. Live hard-leave lots of victims, that should be her motto; not It’s the good life.

    February 18, 2009 4:57 pm

    If they look at other jounal entries they can factor in more meaning as well as set the record straight relative to what was written before and after and if any of it can be substantiated. Does she talk about where she was and who was there, etc. to arrive at date and year.

    Did anyone of these new, good friends see her on the 21 June and notice an unually happy and contented Casey. That would be more helpful and would speak to her frame of mind.

  39. friendlymom permalink

    Now, she is only another number. She isn’t anything special; just a washed up has been, that never really was.

  40. friendlymom permalink
    February 18, 2009 5:00 pm

    I am sure there is something in there that leads them to knowing it was written during this time frame. Knowing her, she probably wrote ’03 in the corner to lead people into thinking it was older than it is.

    I am glad that someone is talking about that ’03 reference. I first thought it was from 2003 plus the date just says June 21st, no year. So she covered her butt there. But JoJo is right, even though this is intriging, it is only a small portion of evidence against her. My opinion is that the detectives will figure out if it’s credible or not. If she wrote it in 2003, then they will find out what she did that month, that year. If she did write it in 2008, it is very disturbing because she’s referring to the situation like it’s not that big of a deal. Not knowing what the future holds, and I guess I’ll find out soon? If she did just kill her daughter 3 days prior, that is pretty cold. It almost makes me feel like there is no way she is talking about Caylee here. Does she not feel that she might get caught and spend eternity in jail? Either she is really really demented and has no clue what she did or doesn’t realize the totality of it or this means something else. It’s very strange.

    At the end of the day this jounal entry may never even come into evidence unless it leads them to motive. There is so much science that this journal entry will pale in comparison.

    What was written before and after will more than likely be more helpful in establishing the year. They found it at home and possibly she left it there on the 24th when she returned the gas cans. More than likely Cindy and Lee looked through it to see where she was.

    Good suggestion, Fencepost, could be true. The childishly scripted “Every Day Is A Brand New Beginning” certainly looks like 2003, but the subsequent entry could possibly be from 2008…

    I’m not buying the idea that the ’03 was a countdown number from the day of the murder. If it were, surely it would be more natural to write Day 3, or 3rd Day, or just 3, rather than ’03 with the apostrophe before, implying a sort of contraction of 2003.

    Sorry, but you folks don’t convince me, I’m going with my first instinct; this was written in 2003. Maybe she had an abortion then? Or decided to, I dunno, break up with someone, or sleep with someone? Or, er, swear off booze or marijuana or something?

  45. friendlymom permalink
    February 18, 2009 6:11 pm

    As I heard mentioned on TV, they have ways of dating ink, as well as paper. I am sure they have done this. I would almost bet, she wrote ’03 as a way of trying to cover her tracks.

  46. Kari permalink
    February 18, 2009 6:13 pm

    Oh, I guess the suggestion of the ‘title page’ and the June 21 entry being two different years was not Fencepost, but Kylucky. Anyways, good suggestion, it’s possible.

  47. friendlymom permalink
    February 18, 2009 6:14 pm

    I think much of what Casey did was childish; like getting the “The Good Life” tattooed after her daughter went missing. Or, how about pissing in public while in a drunken stuper and being photographed doing it. This is behavior that one might expect from a 16 year old.

  48. friendlymom permalink
    February 18, 2009 6:16 pm

    Boston, I agree with you. If they were not certain, it wouldn’t be submitted as evidence. I am sure there are parts that we cannot see that would indicate the time frame.

  49. Anna permalink
    February 18, 2009 6:18 pm

    This pretty much screams out that she killed her. I am also speechless, as I have been with many news updates with the Caylee case. The whole thing with the journal and having no regrets, and the email messages with Casey’s “boyfriend” about calling Caylee an annoying brat is enough to convince me that she murdered poor Caylee. I just want to know how anyone could kill their own child, and be pleased with themselves. How could she kill the same little girl that the night before she was helplessly killed probably said to Casey, “I love you mommy.” All i need to know is whether she will be getting lifetime in jail, death penalty, or placed into a mental hospital!

  50. Anna permalink
    February 18, 2009 6:20 pm

    Also maybe the ’03 was for that page with “everyday is a new day” and she just hadn’t used the journal in 5 years so she just wrote on the new page next to it.

    I think that something is mentally wrong with her, who could possible do that to their child, lie like that to the police, and have no regrets about it? but no doubt about it, Casey killed Caylee, id not she had something to do with it.

  54. friendlymom permalink
    February 18, 2009 6:39 pm

    She may be crazy, but not “legally insane”. She knew what she did was wrong, and tried to cover it up. That means she is eligible for life behind bars, or the death penalty.

    If the diary didn’t have value as evidence it would not be in the collected evidence…I’m sure LE has dotted all…i’s and crossed all ..t’s…just as they do with historical documents..testing the age and color of pigment in the ink and the same with the paper they would know..also they have the rest of the diary so they know if that was the year or something else..I wouldn’t worry about it.

    They have the blanket..the trash bags..the canvas bag..the stickers and so much more..so it’s not just one thing but a mountain of little things that add up against her.

    I agree with you and everyone else that said there is enough evidence to convict her without the diary entry.

    The pictures taken of Casey after Caylee went missing are pictures of a person who looked so happy she could jump out of her skin. She could not look any more gleeful than she did. I mean she looks WILDLY gleeful. This is not how a normal parent looks after losing a child.

    February 18, 2009 8:16 pm

    WILDLY gleeful!!!! HA HA HA!!! That’s funny. And true.

    I’m still confused about her prints being on the duct tape. I read somewhere on this blog a few hours ago that it had been ruled out ~ Casey’s prints were not on the tape.

    But, I just finished watching Nancy Grace and she said we still don’t know if Casey’s were or they weren’t. She said what we all knew earlier and that was that Geo., Cindy & Lee’s were not on the tape. Does anybody know?

    And about that pesky little addition to her journal. It clearly shows ’03 up in the corner but surely to God today’s forensics can date the ink, right? My God! They should be able to do something like that with their eyes closed! The FBI rock!!! They are very, very good at what they do!

    Bees Knees, one of the news stations said the fingerprints weren’t on the tape. Another news station suggested they were. They said this BEFORE the discovery was released. After reading through the documents, I did not see anywhere that it said Casey’s prints were or were not on the tape. Only that George, Cindy, and Lee’s prints were not. Perhaps that info will be released in the next batch of discovery.

    What did you all think about her whining to her friend about Cindy trying to play mom? What else was Cindy to do, her and George was raising her. It was all good when she was out partying and playing hide the salami, but don’t act like a mom any other time….please. She is worthless and evil to the core.

  68. itsamysterytome permalink*
    February 18, 2009 8:48 pm

    That didn’t surprise me. A couple of other things did though.

    The fact that Cindy sent people to search the area a month before they found the body (Dominic Casey I would guess though she didn’t mention him by name). I would also guess he was talking to her on the phone that day.

    Telling Annie and another friend that she felt she needed to be committed.

    That Caylee appeared to have separation anxiety every time Casey left the room or appeared to be going to leave her.

  69. friendlymom permalink
    February 18, 2009 8:52 pm

    Yes those are telling things. I just wonder why they were out there a month before, and why didn’t they see anything. Maybe they just weren’t in the right spot. I would love to know why they felt it necessary to be there in the first place. I wonder is one of Casey’s friends didn’t tell Cindy it may be a place of interest or if Casey somehow told them.

    The seperation issue is so sad. Casey did leave her a lot. Just goes to show, when children are little, they will love you regardless. Also, if Casey had been leaving her alone in the trunk or car may be why she acted this way. Sad, so sad. I just hurt thinking of her ever being afraid and alone.

    I just feel she was so full of jealousy and hate that she saw this as removing the burden and competition. She is hateful, so hateful that she could do this, and then go rent movies with her boyfriend as if it were a day to celebrate. I guess for her evil soulless self it was.

    Theres something else in that Diary that nobodys talking about. If you notice the center of the book where the two pages meet, it seems that there were pages ripped out. I have a journal in front of me right now that I keep, and I have an entry for march 2004, and the very next page is an entry from decmber 2007, cause I did a bunch of doodles and crazy letters that I ripped out. That ’03 was definetley the year that page was written on, but that june 21st could be any year from 2003 to the present. That entry sounds like she aborted a baby when she was seventeen, more than it sounds like a decision to kill her Daughter. I just can’t see her driving around with her daughter in the trunk, thinking “hmmm…let me write this damming evidence in my diary that I’ll just leave here for everyone to find”. And the person who keeps writing “it has to be from 2008 or the cops wouldnt put it into evidence”. Believe me, yes they would. Anything they can find to shed guilt on that girl, they will use. And understand this, theres a reason there showing that page now, and thats to show the potential jurers who are watching it now, because that book wont make it to court for them to see it there. And for every scientist that the state can find to date that ink to 2008, the defense can find three that will say its from 2003, trust me. On a side note, out of all the evidence I heard, and all the tapes and videos and pictures…theres one thing that I think is the most damming and cold blooded evidence of all. The fact that Casey said she talked to her daughter on july 14th or 15th, the day before her mom made the 911 call. It’s already been proven that Caylee was killed between the 18th and the 27th of june. Did god place that call for Caylee from heaven, I mean what makes Casey Anthony so special that she’s the only one who can talk to her dead child on the phone.

    I know to some the ” ’03” is a small point when you consider ALL the evidence that they presently have. But it is something that has you quirk an eyebrow & ponder where this is leading. Some people mentioned other bits of evidence that was not mentioned in the newly released documents which gets me thinking . . . there is more to come.

    Thank You itsamystery for trying to find out a bit more about this ” ’03” . I noted WFTV has kinda of two pix of the journal up, one that you & many others have posted, then a larger version. Has anyone asked ( or can we even ) WFTV about the journal entry?

    I suspect Baez & them are going to have a field day with this one.

    Curiousgeorge-

    Good post. I’m one of the ones that said LE wouldn’t have included that diary entry in the discovery if it weren’t relevant. I hadn’t noticed that some of the pages had been been ripped out. I tried to enlarge the page, but for me, it’s hard to tell for sure.

    Excellent point about Casey lying about talking to her daughter on the phone. I hadn’t put that with the dates LE said Caylee died together. A person like that could have easily written that diary entry 5 days after her child disappeared!

    I forgot all about Casey saying that she had talked to Caylee the day before the police talked to her. Now we know that would be impossible. Good point. I also think the diary was written in ‘o3. Casey was not even living at home at the time of the entry if it was in ’08. She was living with her boyfriend. I thought that I heard that there was a pregnancy test found also, has anyone else heard that?

    I agree fencepost-

    Very damning to her. I don’t know if Curious is right about why LE released the diary, but if it was written last year, it would just be one more piece of the puzzle. He’s right, unless they can prove it without a doubt, the diary will probably be thrown out.

    I think I saw a photo of a pregnancy test found at the crime scene in the discovery. Unless it was in the trashbag I would wonder how they could prove it belonged to Casey. The area had been flooded and they said there was also a lot of trash.

    I noticed that a lot of the stations cut the ’03 off also. The diary page looks like it was written in the same red ink as the first page. I thought that one of her friends said that Casey had at some point gotten an abortion. Does anyone else remember that? I think that the defense is going to have a harder time explaining away that phone call than they are this journal entry.

    Just a couple of points I would like to make about the journel; First, they are not only able to perform tests that can date the ink and paper, but they can also find out when the book was manufactured. If it were manufactured after ’03, then that is damning evidence. The other point is NO she did not write “I killed Caylee”, but she did write it’s the happiest I have been in a long time. If they prove the date of that entry, it will sink her. Why would someone (who’s little daughter has been taken by the nanny) be writing of how happy they are? They wouldn’t be.

  85. friendlymom permalink
    February 19, 2009 7:49 am

    I do not think they even need the book. With all the other evidence, and I am leaning toward the blanket, they have a good case. George would have noticed that Winnie the Pooh blanket the last day he saw them. I would also think Cindy would have noticed it gone right away. I do find it interesting that the book was not in this document dump. They made such a big deal of it earlier, and now no mention of it at all. You could clearly see the book in the pictures released earlier. This could be something they are holding back for now.

  86. friendlymom permalink
    February 19, 2009 7:55 am

    I also think Casey’s reaction, the day the body was discovered, speaks volumes. Why did she not get upset all the other times when it was thought they may have found Caylee? She even went so far as to mention on one occassion “They haven’t even found her clothes yet”. When you put all these facts together, it all points at her, and no one else. They can try and discredit every piece of evidence, but there are many things that simply cannot be explained away, for instance, the call from Caylee, and the fact that she did not report her missing, or even worse, never even mentioned to her closest friends, and worse, did not seem upset one bit. As someone wrote earlier, she appeared gleefully happy; hell I would even go so far as to say the happiest she had been in a long time???

    I thought her musings were straight forward and hopeful and chronicled something that obviously couldn’t be written about for fear of someone else knowing about.

    She was reassuring to herself, proud of her newfound feelings of happiness and cautious about her future. She was having a conversation with herself so to speak.

    This was her liberation manifesto with all the excitment she could muster.

    She had a somewhat mature, “open-minded” approach to the fact that “time will tell”. She was in command of her feelings, “I trust my judgements” but never talked about what it was she did which might have prompted this journal entry.

    This was a journal for special occasions so to speak. For Casey who was also searching for the thrill of success this might have been one of those moments which could not have gone unnoticed or unrecorded. She needed to connect with someone and the Journal was her only route.

    It was an interesting piece of evidence and it is very much a part of the case insofar as it speaks to motive.

    If it doesn’t speak to motive it will dismissed and if it does the defense with try to throw it out. Either way it gets a hearing and decisions are made about it’s admissibiliity.

    The nunbers 3 and 8 are half of one another.

    She could have had this Journal from the time she graduated from high school and never changed the year. Nicey she could have had the sign in “03” as you say.

    I don’t think it was a forum to chronicle bad acts knowing full well she lacked any real privacy while at home. She wrote this when she was away from home. Would she have had the freedom this entry inspired in her had she been doing the laundry at home?

    Count the number of “I”s in this passage.

    Niecey, that is a good observation. Also, as mentioned. She may have this journal for awhile, and just decided to finally start writing in it. Mudh of what she does is juvenile behavior, and not well thought out. Some are saying she would hardly write about the murder, whatever, she was stupid enough to lie about things that are easily proven wrong, as well as going as far as to lead police to a fake office, only to turn around and say, “my bad, I don’t really work here”. So yes, I can see her writing about something like this, and my guess is she did it at Tony’s. I wonder if he remembers seeing this book, or her writing in it? I am sure he has been asked.

    If this Journal entry was made on June 21, 2008 it would have been written while away from home. At Tony’s.

    Cindy asked Lee to go to Tony’s and pick up Casey’s beongings. He did that.

    If this Journal was in the Anthony home on June 21, 2008 and not in the recently returned items from Tony’s apartment than I don’t think it has any evidenciary value.

    friendly mom–very good point! They should for sure be able to tell when that diary was manufactured–and especially what years that particular cover art was used. Usually, artwork is only used for one or two printings unless it is completely generic.

    Also about the “happy”. You can tell from photos that she sure wasn’t in deep mourning.

    It’s my understanding that she hyperventilated and asked for medication BEFORE anyone knew for sure it was Caylee’s remains. They said she was completely emotionless when Leonard was dragging the Little Econ.

    Tamalla–

    The only time I remember hearing that she was “pregnant” was with B. Snow and she said she had a miscarriage. In the documents that were released, Annie or Michelle said that she told them she “imagined” a life with Brandon and that she was pregnant and that she felt she was going crazy. She said she wanted to be committed. None of her friends believed she was pregnant at all.

    You are right. You can’t put anything past Casey. She was stupid enough to take LE on a wild goose chase, she was apparently stupid enough to take items from her home to “bag up” Caylee in, so why wouldn’t she be stupid enough to write that entry.

    Boston’s right. That journal entry may, in the end, mean nothing at all for the prosecution.

    MYSTERY and NICEY-

    She would never share those kinds of feelings with anyone but herself. It was a conversation and one meant for HEO (her eyes only). She didn’t drop out of high school to the best of my knowledge. She was in school up to and including the last week of senior year.

    Mr and Mrs Anthony were called to the Guidance Department and were notified first by letter (and the subsequent meeting with the Guidance Dept.) that Casey did not meet the requirements for graduation.

    The Guidance department spokesperson informed Mr and Mrs Anthony that he had spoken to Casey in her Junior year about the necessary credits she would need in order to meet the State’s graduation requirements. Casey apparently did not tell George or Cindy that she could not graduate.

    Cindy was furious, not at Casey but at the school for not informing her earlier. By the time the meeting ended she had the principal and the superintendent in the meeting and shouting at all of them. The rules are the rules and they could not bend State rules for one student was their apparent resolution to this issue. Casey did not graduate nor did she engage in any graduation activities.

    Now I know I read this somewhere and for the life of me I cannot remember. It had to be in the first set of documents that came out possibly in Auugust? Do you want me to look it up?

  104. February 19, 2009 12:03 pm

    Living in FL and being a father of a two year old girl, this story has really hit home. It seems that I can not escape its headlines. Standing in line at the store you see it on all the tabloids. The daily paper, it is everywhere. I want it to go away. I want her to go away. I would like for her to be released into general public population and let prison justice take its course. I know she would not last more than a week before someone puts a shank into her back. I know what is going to happen, she will cut a deal with the state that will stop her from the death penalty. Which I think is wrong. They cant execute her fast enough, each day she sets in there is another day of tax payer money being wasted.

    Mystery-Don’t think about it as a mistake you were entirely correct in stating that she did not graduate. I often think of a drop out as someone who actually left school at 16 because they could . I think the common reference to someone who didn;t graduate for whatever reason is usually documented as a drop out. Please forgive me if I sounded like I was correcting you – I would not want to do that!!!

    You are right about the DP. It cannot be added as Florida has a 45 day ruling. Apparently once you refuse an imminity deal than 45 days has to traspire and then it comes off the table as the trial goes forward.

    I don’t think this is a big issue as they indicted her on Felony Murder on October 111 without the body so she is still looking at Life behind bars even though they have a body. I hope I made sense with all of that.

Her attorney isnt the brightest apple on the tree and is convincing her that she is innocent and comaring her to an old case and movie.. That guy is only about 30 years behind times and leading her to her own tree where she will ultimatly hang herself.. Hopefully Biaz will learn from this case and get experience that he needs to become an attorney that his 3 years has allowed him to be a “just ” someone that passed a bar assco. test.. Glad that Casey chose someone like him,, poor guy already having health issues , maybe … this 1st major case of his will point him in the right direction and see the truth as it is from now on with future clients.Everything that has been found has led LE back to the real killers home. Now to prove the killers hands are indeed Casey Anthony ,maybe she can and will get help that she needs. It’s hard not to judge , But we all only have 1 judge and he isnt a human as we are.

    Did Casey keep a consecutive diary entry for each day? I know when I was younger, my diaries only included entries for days that had some significance, so each entry could be from months or years earlier.

    Surrounding herself with good people could be her comparing her relationship with friends as opposed to her family. From what I have read, their relationship was rocky.

    debilee-Casey knows everything and then some about what is going on in her case. She has about 7-10 people on her team that are actually authorized to speak with her and are allowed into the jail to see her.

    She has enormous links to the outside as well as a fairly vigilant lawyer. Whether he is sick or not doesn;t mean that she is without means to direct her case and all those who will, in the end, mentor her and guide her as well as bring her to some understanding of what is the end game.

    Jose Baez is the “lead”attorney and will do all the preliminary work necessary during pretrial.

    Kenny Baden will be the lead attorney and will do the opening and closing statements as he does not have enough years of experience in capital cases.

    He may have a larger role in the penalty phase. I really don’t know but I would make a guess that’s where he will shine.

    Many lawyers get experience and that’s how they get good at it. Docs are interns, residences, fellows and eventually surgeons, internists, etc.

    A CPA does not lead the IRS in the first year of licensure. It’s important to give someone with the client from Hell and the victim in Heaven a little slack.

    Good posts debilee, Boston, and fencepost,

    I think Casey will get her day in court with the best defense money could (but didn’t) buy. She will be given a better shake in the courtroom than the majority of people would in her same shoes because she is being handed a defense only the very wealthy normally could afford.

    So, because of that we will have to hold our breaths. Linda Kenny Baden is no pantywaist and Baez had the good sense to get someone like her on board. He may well be smarter than he’s been given credit for and he’s for sure gonna come out of this with some sort of notoriety–which kind is yet to be determined and won’t be determined until the trial is done.

    That all said, I would be shocked beyond shocked if Casey Anthony ever sees the light of day again. They would have to produce “Zanny” with a key to Casey’s house and car plus a mob of drugged out gangsters to do that. JMO

    Debilee-You know first hand that if you are a defense attorney you are to ask your client to tell you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so that you can mitigate and craft an argument which negates your clients’ complicity in a crime for which he is being charged. Defense lawyers defend guilty people every day of the week and throughout their careers.

    The only ones who convict are the jurors.

    Lawyers convict no one. They can elect to represent anyone.

    We have the finest system in the free world. It is unfortunate that the vulnerable and disenfranchised do not get the representation they so justly deserve and in that cohort many are unjustly convicted. But at teh end of the day everyone is entitled to defend themselves. I have the greatest respect for people who will in some instances give up 10 years of their lives to fight for someone who cannot fight for themselves.

    Yesterday Mike Natola won freedom for Kathy Hilton who spent 10 years in prison for a crime she did not commit. She is mentally challenged and languished for years in Framinham prison while Mike fought her cause. Indicted on 5 counts of first degree murder as a result of a house fire. The police said she confessed and the poor woman said she didn;t. 10 years later she is free.

    Freedom came as a result of three days of hard work on the part of the jury. Praise god for the jury system.

    You sound very bitter about this. Why? No one ever said our prison system was ideal and because I know nothing about the Canadian penal system I will just have to take your word for it that yours is a garden spot.

    I personally am not so sure I think prison should be an ideal place to reside. It is a punishment not a reward. I agree there should be more effort to rehabilitate criminals though.

    As far as legalizing pot, I hope we can agree to disagree on that one.

    Boston is just stating her opinion–just like you are.

    I just re-read Boston’s post. Actually, I believe we do have the finest justice system in the world. I would venture to say our prisons are some of the better in the world as well. I can’t argue against Canada’s prisons, because as I said, I know nothing about them. Boston’s post wasn’t about prisons.

    Making my point !! it’s all relevant.Theres that word again rehabilitate,how 60’s or 50’s,can some one explain rehab??I no they tried!!As for the pot issue,whats your kid smokin,crack,meth cool,line em up for rehab,prison.Where else on this planet can a MURDER buy his way out of jail,OJ,Phil,police beating innocent ppl and get acquitted WOW.
    I thought I made my point about your justice system sending innocent ppl to jail,JUST ONE.Remember Hurricane Carter,he moved to Canada after he was released from jail INNOCENT,so then i have to ask how many have been put to DEATH that were INNOCENT?? any idea,I ‘ve read it was something like 2-5% is that cool or what.Prosecutorial misconduct happens ever day there and you do not see them getting there asses raked across the coals.Are they above the law,I think not!!No your system is broken.Some of you should watch Prison Nation on NATGEO,I’m sure it will wake you up as to what is going on in your prisons.Did you know that they are bursting at the seems,need to build at least 5 ever year,just to keep up.3 strikes,it makes any normal human being a desperate being,I know if I was going to jail the rest of my days for stealing a piece of pizza,I’m gonna make it rite,laws written for who,what.Your going to try and tell me this is rite.say heehaw!!See here we had this fella named David Milgard,he spent 23 years in prison for NOTHING,he professed his INNOCENCE to anyone and every one,DNA cleared him WOW EH!that one costed the gov. 20 million.How do you put a price on ones freedom??I know I value mine.How many go to jail unjustly cause they can’t afford an attorney,they JOE BLOW public defender heheheh,thats funny.Look at HOSE B public defender heheheh,soon to be delegated after the Crazyone gets her dues..

    Listen People. That diary was from 2003! Most news shows like Nancy Grace wont even show you the “03” its like its whited out or something, you know why? Cause people would see that its from 2003 and wonder why there even showing it. It’s so obvious that shes talking about an abortion. Who cares about that stupid diary, you know what! it’s stuff like this that will end of helping Casey, that book is gonna be proven to be from 2003 and then it’s gonna look like the state is claiming false things against her, and people already dont trust the goverment or cops. She’s going to Prison, and for three reasons and not one of them is that stupid diary she wrote in when she was 16.

    1. Theres no friggin Zanni the Nanny!
    2. Casey never reported her child missing!
    3. She said she talked to her dead child on the phone!

    I mean really, they could show you a picture that Casey drew when she was 5 years old, of a girl with a knife in her hand, and people would belive that she drew it in prison and its a picture of her after she killed Caley! We must all be careful with what we fill this internet with, remember the jurers of this trial(when it happens) are watching and absorbing this. Lets not act like people who have been abducted by aliens with storys of conspirecy, like the “03” is really a half of “8” and that is caseys code for “kill Caylee”, you know what I’m saying. Trust Me….THIS DIARY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED INTO EVIDENCE!!!

    to the guy in Canada…. i agree that we are wasting ppls lives that are imprisoned for pot, prisons outta be for true crimes of hurting ,killing and maiming other ppl ect……. if one wants to smoke pot thats ones own decision,, id rather see pot legalized that booze and mind boggling drugs that kill and drs. getting allowing ppl to get addicted as well as pharmicutcals getting rich.. what happened to natrual herbs and meds that got our parents,grand parents and century’s of humans well other than narcotics.. given by so called drs. drugs have been around since time,, it’s the abuse that ppl go to killing ppl for to get the stuff.. ppl mostly are medicated thruout time on something.

    debilee, good post. thank you.

    I also agree with you and Paul that there should not be a mix of minor offenders mixed with murderers in prison. Maybe there should be 2 kinds of prisons. The ones for the killers, and doers of horrendous crimes, and one for lesser crimes. Probably impossible financially, but in a perfect world a better solution. Then your pot smokers and 3 strikes your out crowd could be “rehabilitated.”

    To answer that,,,, YES, lots of certain types of ppl for many reasons also have done that since time,, if weve never had to eat and sleep off the streets we cant fully understand their concept. But sadly , it happens lots . shelter, food as well as imteractions with others. they can relate to that type of social life due to feeling less ashamed of their life styles for whatever reason, than a “normal” class of ppl due to their sad circumstances.

    the news say tonight that the video of caseys, reaction to the bones that were found b4 they confirmed the name,, was damning for this case, and she has hurt herself again by the reaction… anyone hear anything else?

    I think @ 1st they,(LE) did do a few pyscological tests on her and turned out ok,, just a pathalogical liar ! Duh anyone could tell that part without the tests, just listen to her and even took the cops to a no job of hers job site,, now that was getting some @#$%$#@ about her from almost day 1.Keeping the world confused with her lies,, now , knowing that and saying someone doesnt/ hasnt had mental prior problems is pure hog wash,, and the fact is that we should all see as you maybe feel a little, almost defending her…??? all im saying, is she needs help ! and hopefully she will get it. healing only will come if, the guilty can feel and show their pain of their deeds.

    debilee–IMO she’s a sociopath. Sociopaths are incapable of showing emotion for anyone other than themselves. Unfortunately for Miss Casey, if psychological testing reveals that to be the case, sociopathy is not considered a mental illness. Can’t use it in court with an insanity plea.

Instead of flapping her horrid tongue and wagging her rotten tail ,Advice could be bi atch .. Tell your family that you murdered their baby girl cause you was’nt in control after Caylee learned what to say and WHAT NOT to say.. She didnt know anyone that Casey hung with . esp. Zanny. with 2 legs, only in pill form. Had to stop spinning her freaky life before her dream was destroyed.
    What could possible ever get so bad that she murdered that little girl and then dealt with moving her dead baby around until she found a final place she thought was a good hide.. STUPITER THAN STUPID PIECE OF DUNG FOR A HUMAN, WASTED PIECE OF SPERM.

That’s just sick. She has problems, they may not know for sure that Casey is the one that killed Caylee but if you ask me, I’m pretty sure its Casey who killed Caylee… & police found searches on the Anthony computer for “Neck breaking” “How to make clorophorm” & “Death” thats pretty suspiecious if you ask me. This is a very sad thing that happened to little Caylee. God help whoever could do this to such a sweet innocent little girl. I hope they figure out who did this soon.

    Mystery, I do not know how I missed this post! Sometime I take a break and I guess I never saw this. I’m kind of glad that it has gone on because it is very interesting.

    The diary raises so many questions. Whoever first brought up the pages being torn out made a very good argument. Either way, six years prior or now, her character is her character. I would like to bet though that it was from now only because the thoughts did not seem like those of a 16 year old and do seem to fit into the scenario in 08. Although, when you are looking for something, it is amazing what you can see.

    I don’t think that people want to believe that she could have been that cold and callous three days after her daughters death but, people are forgetting that she is not the normal run of the mill mother. She has the ability to put that behind her and open a new chapter of her life. It is not insanity, she knows right from wrong. It is definately more comparable to the sociopathic diagnosis.

    As far as those who believe that she wouldn’t have been so stupid as to leave that type of damning evidence: Casey believed then and to this day I am sure that she is not going to held liable for this. She seems to think that the “killer/kidnapper” is going to be blamed and that she will walk away. I don’t think that she believes in action and consequence because again, it has never been taught to her. Someone always saved her, covered for her and made her not have to take responsibility for what she does. We have seen that over and over.
    * Cindy blaming the school for her not graduating
    ( Why was she not blamed for hiding the fact that she
    she knew a year prior?)
    *Cindy apologizing and offering to pay back the grandmother
    that Casey stole from .
    ( Why was she not made to sit face to face with her
    grandmother, and if only to scare her straight, why
    not get the cops involved? Maybe Amy wouldn’t have had
    to worry)
    * Cindy, George, Lee making excuse after excuse for every
    piece of evidence that was found.
    ( Why not make her answer?)

    So you see, every single time that Casey has done something wrong she has not had to pay for anything. She was not punished, she was not made to rectify any situation and she was not held accountable. She does not have the ability to truly believe that someone is not going to be able to get her out of this.

    Lastly, and I know I am rambling but that is what this case does to me.
    Paul: As I like Mystery do not have any insight into your prison systems I cannot comment. I can tell you that we do have rehabilitation in our systems, however if a prisoner does not take the step to improve their lives while there then that is their choice. My husband has two cousins who have been in and out of the system since they were young teens and each time they are released it is only a matter of months before they are back. One finally took advantage of the time and is now a paralegal and has been doing well for himself. The other? He cannot function in society and he has plainly stated that. He cannot go about his day when there is no one telling him when to do something every second of the day. He actually developed a terrible anxiety and chose to return to prison.
    As far as your commentary on the prison system turning into a legalize pot campaign, well that was just weird…

    I think you are absolutely right that Casey still does not believe she will end up spending the rest of her life in jail. And as unpopular as this is with some bloggers, I believe George and Cindy are very much at fault here. Of course, I don’t believe they are responsible for Casey killing Caylee, but I do believe their actions and the precedent they set while raising Casey has enabled her to be in a frame of mind where she THOUGHT she could get away with killing Caylee. It all goes back to what you said–she has never been made to suffer the consequences of any action she has ever done—until now. Or at least I hope til now. I pray she gets life in prison with no chance of parole–ever.

    Well, my guess is that the a photo of the journal was taken so that forensic tests can be done on the pages themselves. Ink can be dated, as stated in an earlier post. From what I’ve read, ink can be dated within 6 months or less. So, it seems that the evidence against her is much larger than we realize. I’m sure not everything has been released. I can’t wait for this trial to end…. No innocent mother would ever, EVER wait for a month before reporting her child missing. My 10 year old daughter was two hours late coming home from a new friends house, one time. When there was no answer at the friends house, and no answer on her cell phone, I started calling everyone I knew trying to find her… when her friend’s mother brought her home and she walked through the door, I was in the middle of filing a missing child report to the police. I wrapped my arms around her and started crying my eyes out! I thought I had lost her! She simply forgot what time I told her to be home. She stays home, now. I let her bring her friends here.

    Casey’s password “timer 55” is suppose to be the countdown from when Zanny took her until she returnes her on Caylee’s 3rd. birthday. Casey told Cindy Zanny was punishing her for not being a good mother and she’ll bring her back after she (Casey) had been properly punished. The sad thing is, Cindy bought this story. At that point, I think Cindy would have believed anything her daughter said rather than believe Caylee was dead. My heart goes out to her.

    Yes, I agree with Cindy. The really sad part is….knowing that the daughter that you carried for 9 months, nursed, loved, try to raise in a good home, had so many hopes and dreams for…..is just a cold blooded child killer. How could any parent face that? When I watched Cindy on the stand, it was very plain that she was devestated. That poor woman! And she even tried tried to get her father involved? Uncondtional love doesn’t mean covering up for murder of your grandchild. That diary entry leaves my blood cold! Since she is a party girl and wanted a free lifestyle, life without parole is far worse than death. Let her spend everyday, knowing that tomorrow will be a repeat of the previous day. That would drive me insane. Keep her alive….the worst torture that she could face.

    She was a few days away from graduation when her parents found out she hadn’t finished the course work in one of her classes. I don’t think the diary entry had anything to do with it. For one thing, it was discovered that the diary was purchased at Dollar General and that it wasn’t printed until 2005 or after. The date was a fake.

I’ve been watching the trial live everyday since it started…this girl does nothing but lie and each lie has such tremendous detail her details are so overkill it’s obvious shes lying..writting the wrong year is just another false lead put out by her. She is guilty and i wish she could be executed in an old fashion way…like a Brassin bull or be drawn and courtered. And ya know I felt sorry for Cindy Anthony in this..but not anymore…her lies now are just as obvious and insulting..I know she just doesnt want to contribute to her daughter getting the death penalty..but watching her today LIE through her teeth was so sicking that I now believe she should be charged with accessary after the fact…the only one i don feel sorry for is George Anthony..he is lying to but he’s being forced to by Cindy…the whole molestation thing is all a tactic to make Casey a victim and not the despicable villian that she is. She sits in court everyday with a Oh whoa is me…I have better things to do look on her face…phoneally crying ONLY TWICE DURING THIS WHOLE TRIAL SO FAR…and both time her tears were as phoney as her…her mother mouthed the words “I Love You” to Casey and she gave her a whatever look and rolled her eyes.

    That diary was dated ”03…did anyone bother to look on the forecover ?? no one puts 03 on the top unless that is year it was written…caylee wasnt born till 05. to me this proves nothing she was 17. that diary entry could of been about anything if it was written in 03.

    I don’t think Casey A. killed her daughter :/ I saw pictures of them together, and they seemed so happy.

    But when Caylee was without her mom, she was sad. But in some pictures together they both seemed sad; thinking.

    I think George A. killed Caylee

    maybe she wanted the baby to be gone because what she went through with her father and brother.. maybe she was a reminder of what her father did to her growing up? or maybe she could of been an offspring of this incest relationship…just ” what ifs”

    The actual diary wasn’t published until 2004, caught in another lie Casey.
