Appalled by the Casey Anthony Defense: Tacky Opening Accusations
Have you been following this tragic story?
Only now, the sweet baby’s 9 month incubator (which is the nicest thing I can say about Casey Anthony right now) is once again trying to place blame for this baby girl’s death.
According to CNN and other news sources, she’s blaming her FATHER, George Anthony for a long string of, what I believe are, total lies.
Anthony’s defense team went on the attack Tuesday during opening statements alleging that 2-year-old Caylee Anthony was not murdered by her mother as prosecutors maintain, but drowned in the family’s pool in June 2008.
Anthony and her father, George Anthony, panicked upon finding the child, Jose Baez said.
She found her father cradling Caylee’s body the morning of June 16, 2008, he said, and George Anthony yelled at his daughter, “Look what you’ve done. Your mother will never forgive you.” More at CNN.com
It doesn’t stop there. She told her lawyers, who relayed to the court that her father sexually abused her as a child starting at age 8, and that her brother, Lee Anthony, did as well. Apparently, someone thought there was merit to the story, because they actually conducted a paternity test on the brother, Lee, to see if he was actually Caylee’s sperm donor.
This girl is a piece of work. I don’t think anything she says is credible, and now, not only was sweet little Caylee a victim of such a terrible crime, but her entire family is being dragged through the mud with allegations that are unspeakable.
I personally hope that the jury doesn’t buy into all of this. Of course, no one will every know exactly how these events played out except for Casey Anthony, but I do not believe one word of the defense’s opening scenario.
