What do you think really happened to Caylee Anthony?
She’s the little girl from Florida who her mother says was last seen June 9th. But her mother, Casey Anthony, didn’t report her missing until July 15th.
She’s in jail in Orlando charged with child neglect and apparently is refusing to work with investigators.
First she said she left her daughter with a baby sister at an apartment which police later found out had been vacant for six months. Now she says she knows what may have happened to Caylee but won’t give up any information until she is released from jail. That really puts investigators in a pickle, huh?
Caylee and her mom lived with Caylee’s grandparents. Police have searched the house many times. Today they took yet another garbage bag full of clothing.. apparently full of Casey’s clothes from a suitcase she had with her the day she showed up and reported her daughter missing.
She said she was gone all that time on a business trip for Universal Studios. Guess what, she doesn’t work for Universal Studios. So what’s up? Do you think she was threatened and is trying to protect her daughter? Or do you think she harmed her?
Investigators are testing DNA found on a stain in the mother’s car.. and on Friday they are expected to dive in and search a nearby lake.. though they are saying that has little to do with this little girl’s disappearance.
So—where is Caylee Anthony? We’ve been following this story and would love for your “criminal minds” to weigh in. If you could talk to investigators, or the mom, what would you want to know? What do you think really happened here?
