Caylee Marie Anthony was born on August 9, 2005 to Casey Anthony and her biological father is said to be Josh, a co-worker that she slept with. He is also said to have died in a car accident and never knew about Caylee. Caylee loved going with her grandparents, Cindy and George Anthony, and enjoyed reading her favorite book “Supper Time Freida Fuzzy Paws” with her great-grandfather. Casey wanted to give Caylee up for adoption, but her mother insisted she keep the baby, even though the father didn’t know about her. One of Casey’s childhood friends, Kiomarie Torres Cruz said she thought Casey was bipolar and really did not have the “capabilities, especially psychologically, to raise, financially support, and care for a child. She was such a precious little girl and no one would have ever expected what would happen to her in the early years of her life.

Cindy Anthony had called 911 on July 15, 2008 reporting that she has a feeling that her granddaughter, Caylee, has been taken and is missing for over a month now. Cindy tells the operator that Caylee’s babysitter took her and is refusing to give her up. She also says that “There’s something wrong. I found my daughter’s car today, and it smells like there’s been a dead body in the car.” Cindy is so upset and outraged when telling the operator she doesn’t even remember what Caylee’s birthday is and she also reveals that she has not seen her since June 7, 2008. The dispatcher asks Cindy to put her daughter on the phone to ask Casey a few questions on the matter. Casey tells the dispatcher that Caylee has now been missing for 31 days and she is positive on who has her. She tells the operator that the babysitter, who supposedly has Caylee, is Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez.

Caylee Anthony is now publicly known to be missing, with her last appearance on June 16, 2008, right after Father’s Day. Cindy Anthony has claimed that Casey knows where little Caylee is, but she is too “afraid” to speak honestly with the police. With the news out on her disappearance, relatives have set up pages on the internet to help find Caylee. A MySpace page has been setup with information about Caylee and how to donate funds in the search for this little angel.

Casey was arrested on July 16, 2008 with charges of child neglect. This charge came after Cindy Anthony reported that her granddaughter has been missing for over a month, without any reports being called by Casey. Casey was locked up in the Orange County Jail. Then, in a July 22, 2008 bond hearing for Casey, detectives on this case revealed that strands of hair that were similar to that of Caylee’s were found in the trunk of the Anthony car. In addition, cadaver dogs picked up the scent of human decomposition in the car. Casey’s bail was set at $500,000.

Meanwhile, Caylee had appeared on the front cover of People Magazines’ August 11, 2008 edition. Sheriff’s Deputy Carlos Padilla told magazine reporters that right now there is now evidence proving that Caylee is dead and that investigators are watching the media coverage of the case to in some way help form a clearer picture of what may have happened to Caylee Anthony.

With the public eye now involved in this disappearance case, a veteran bounty hunter, Leonard Padilla, has offered to post Casey’s $500,000 bail, and so he did on August 21, 2008. However, in a recent arraignment hearing Jose Baez, Casey’s lawyer, told her of her charges and what to expect. She reacted with no sign of remorse and said not a word. Casey has now been named as a person of interest in her daughter’s disappearance. Not only does Casey hold charges of child neglect and recently lying to authorities, but now holds charges of first degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter. With news of this Leonard Padilla withdrew his decision of posting Casey’s $500,000 bail.

The end of August 2008 revealed test results from a lab at the University of Tennessee indicated that there had been a decomposing body in the trunk of the Anthony’s car. Also, in an earlier DNA test the FBI showed a feasible match between Caylee and the hair found in Casey’s Pontiac Sunfire’s trunk.

The Nancy Grace show on CNN starting taking interest in this case, when it first surfaced. On the September 25, 2008 episode a tape of three men in Casey’s life tell of their stories of what happened when little Caylee disappeared. These interrogations included brother Lee Anthony, ex-fiancé Jesse Grund, and live-in lover Tony Lazzarro. Lee Anthony said he got to his mom’s house and upon arrival he smelled a potent smell, which he assumed to be coming from the only car in the garage, Casey’s. The trunk was open and the windows were rolled down. He knew something had to be going on and really had no thought of it until Caylee turned up missing. Jesse Grund had said in his interrogation that “Casey is a very effective liar and lies in a very diabolical manner.” Tony Lazzarro didn’t have a large amount of information at the time of his interrogation.

Many of Casey’s friends and family members were questioned on their knowledge of missing Caylee. One of Casey’s friends Amy Huizenga said in her questioning by detectives, “I think something accidentally happened….Casey freaked out…don’t know how she solved the problem…but then created this story in her head.” Out of all the questionings this one had to be the most beneficial and help in trying to connect Casey to the disappearance of her daughter.

October 2008 marked the beginning of Casey’s trials in the disappearance case of her missing daughter. Casey and her attorney did not show up to her arraignment hearing, but she had already entered a written plea of not guilty, allowing her to be absent on her trial date of October 17, 2008.

Lieutenant Angelo Nieves of Orange County Sheriff’s Department released a statement in late October stating “We still have a little girl who is missing and we don’t have any credible information about where she is or where she was last seen. To this date her mother fails to provide us with any information that would help find her child.”

Caylee is now been missing for over five months. November 8, 2008 people in Orange County, Florida began to gather in hopes of finding Caylee Anthony. Officials of EquuSearch estimated as many as 5,000 volunteers would help in the search for this little girl. In reality only 500 showed up at the start time of 8:00 that day. The search teams are focusing on Jay Blanchard Park, Moss Park, woods near Casey’s parents’ home, and an area of land near Orlando National Airport. These searches came up unsuccessful with Caylee still missing and no were to be found. In addition to this search, there was a river search in the Little Econ River five days after. Divers found bags but did not contain human remains. Bounty Hunter Leonard Padilla had hired a team to search for the missing toddler. This search too had turned out to be ineffective.

Casey told her parents that she was just as much a victim as anyone else. She got angry and cried when her parents asked questions about Caylee’s whereabouts, in jailhouse visit.

Orange County deputies released that after six months of searching for little Caylee Anthony, a meter reader found the remains of what could be Caylee on December 11, 2008 at approximately 9:30 A.M. The remains were found in a bag ¼ of a mile from Caylee’s grandparents’ home. Cindy and George insist that Caylee is still alive; an autopsy will determine if the remains found are in fact the toddlers.

At the scene, investigators found dozens of bones around the wooded area where the skull of a body was found. Police sources say the skull found was covered with cloth and found in a garbage bag with duct tape attached to the mouth. Also found was adhesive residue in the shape of a heart sticker on the skull, a Winnie the Pooh blanket, backpack with “adorable” on it, a size 3T shirt, and a child’s pair of white shorts was found in the same bag as the skull. On December 19, 2008 the autopsy confirmed that the body found was in fact that of missing toddler Caylee Anthony. The skeleton found provide only a few clues of what happened to her, which was that her bones didn’t suffer any trauma. Little Caylee is now officially deceased and will never got to see her third birthday.

Casey told authorities after the autopsy confirmed the skeleton was that of her daughter, that the babysitter was not real, the apartment she stated she last saw Caylee has been abandoned for months, and she lied about her job.

Within the evidence found so much of it points straight to Casey as the person who killed her own daughter. The duct tape and plastic bag found with Caylee’s remains in was the same as those taken into custody from the Anthony home; the tape on the skull matched the tape found in the Anthony garage; the Winnie the Pooh blanket found belonged to Caylee; heart-shaped sticker found on tape match stickers found at the Anthony home.

Casey’s home, the scene where Caylee’s remains were found and, the prison Casey is held in have turned into tourist attractions.

Casey says she doesn’t have anything to do with her daughter’s death. Detectives believe she made the babysitter story up. The baby sitter doesn’t even exist.

Zenaida Gonzalez a woman with the same last name as the “so-called babysitter” has brought a lawsuit against Casey Anthony. Gonzalez is suing Casey for defamation (slander). She had lost her job due to casey’s accusations. Judge Rodriguez has delayed the hearing because he will not tolerate personal attacks in court documents. Morgan and Morgan law, the firm representing Gonzalez wants to depose Anthony.
