Casey Anthony, the mother of the late Caylee, was found not guilty of any charges related to the death of her daughter. However, detectives are still interested in what happened to Casey after the trial.
What Happened to Casey Anthony?
After Casey Anthony’s murder trial was over, she moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, away from the public eye. She lived in the area with Patrick McKenna, with whom she shared a house.
Patrick was the lead investigator for Casey’s defense team when she was put on trial for killing her daughter. Casey’s name was back in the news on November 15, 2022, when she was out promoting her Peacock docuseries Casey Anthony: Where the Truth Lies.
In the documentary, she says a lot of different things about what happened when Caylee died. She even goes as far as to say that the person who did it was her own father, George Anthony. Casey thinks back: “When my father woke me up, he shook me and asked where Caylee was.
“That didn’t make sense. Even when she left my room, she always told me. “I started looking around the house right away. I go outside and look around to see if I can find her.” She says even more bad things about her dad: “He was with her and stood there. She was drenched. He gave her to me and said it was my fault, that it was my fault that it happened.
“But he didn’t call 911 right away and he didn’t try to bring her back to life. I fell down while holding her. She was cold and weighed a lot. “He takes her away from me, then changes his voice and says, “It’s going to be fine.”
“I really wanted to trust him. He took her away from me and left.” She also: “I really thought that Caylee was still alive for 31 days. “My dad kept telling me that she would be fine. I had to keep doing what he said. He gave me instructions. I did my best to act like nothing was wrong.”
George Anthony has denied the accusations made against him about the death of his granddaughter many times. When the docuseries starts on November 29, 2022, Peacock subscribers will be able to watch it and remember the case all over again.
Where is Caylee, Casey’s Kid?
Caylee Anthony, who tragically passed away in 2008, was last seen on June 16. Investigators spent months looking for her before finding her body on December 11. Caylee Anthony, age 2, was discovered dead in a wooded area near the Anthony home with her body wrapped in a blanket and hidden in a laundry basket.
Neither the manner nor the cause of her death could be determined, but it was ruled a homicide. To make matters worse, Casey became the prime suspect in her daughter’s murder case.
When Was Casey Acquitted?
Cindy reported Caylee missing on July 15, 2008, and the next day Casey was arrested for child neglect and making false statements to police. Despite being freed in August, she was re-arrested and indicted on Thursday, October 16.
Casey’s trial began on May 23, 2011, with her entering a not-guilty plea. After deliberating for 10 hours and 40 minutes on July 5, 2011, the jury reached a verdict. On Tuesday, a judge found the mother not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter.
Casey, on the other hand, was found guilty on four counts of giving false information to law enforcement.
