Peacock has just released a controversial new documentary titled “Caylee Anthony: Where the Truth Lies,” which tells the story of Caylee Anthony’s mysterious death from her mother, Casey Anthony’s, perspective.
Casey, who was previously charged with her daughter’s death before being found not guilty by a jury in 2011, alleges in The Docuseries that her father, George, was abusive and was ultimately responsible for Caylee’s death.
(George has yet to respond to the allegations.) This is the first time Casey has spoken publicly about her daughter’s death and her trial. In the documentary, Casey says, “I lost everything the day I lost her.”
Caylee’s disappearance and death became national news in 2008, and many people followed Casey’s trial after she was accused of killing her toddler. Here’s the trailer:
How Did Caylee Anthony Die?
The specifics are still unknown.
Prosecutors claimed during Casey’s trial that she used chloroform on her daughter and suffocated her by putting duct tape over Caylee’s nose and mouth. Casey’s defense team, on the other hand, claimed that Caylee drowned by accident in the family pool and that her body was disposed of by her grandfather.
later spoke with the Medical Examiner, who stated that “duct tape was still present on the face” when Caylee’s body was discovered. “Looking back 10 years, what I was most appalled with was this lack of truth and lack of evidence,” Dr. Jan Garavaglia, retired chief medical officer for Orange and Osceola counties, said. “You could just say lies without any kind of evidence, and it was allowed.”
Where Did Casey Anthony live?
Casey and Caylee shared an apartment in Orlando, Florida. Casey claimed to work at Universal Studios, but police discovered that she had lied about having a job there, according to CNN. She also claimed that Caylee was having an affair with a babysitter named Zenaida Gonzalez, or “zanny,” but it was later revealed that she lied about this as well.
Casey was acquitted of murder, manslaughter, and child abuse charges after six weeks in court. However, the jury found her guilty of providing false information to authorities, resulting in a four-year prison sentence. She was eventually released in July 2011 for good behavior and time served.
“I did, in fact, lie to law enforcement.” “Because I admitted to lying to law enforcement, I am a convicted liar.” Casey says on camera
Where Was Caylee Found?
According to her biography, Caylee was raised in the Orlando home of her grandparents, Cindy and George Anthony. However, on June 15, 2008, Casey left with Caylee following a family argument.
George learned in mid-July that the family car Casey used had been impounded. Cindy called 911 after smelling a strong odor in the car and telling the operator, “It smells like there’s been a dead body in the damn car.” Cindy also reported Caylee missing.
Air samples from Casey’s car showed that there were human bones in the trunk, and in December 2008, bones were found in a wooded area near the Anthony home.
Who Found Caylee?
The 2-year-old’s remains were discovered in a trash bag by a sanitation worker. According to the biography, there was duct tape around her nose, mouth, and jaw, but her body was decomposing to the point where investigators couldn’t pinpoint an exact cause of death or date of death.
Casey Anthony Was Found Not Guilty
Casey’s trial began in May 2011. During her trial, which lasted until early July, she did not testify. The jury found her not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter after nearly 11 hours of deliberation. She was found guilty of four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to law enforcement.
Casey was sentenced to four years in prison on July 7, 2011, with credit for time served and a $1,000 fine for each count. On July 17, 2011, she was released. Less than a month later, Florida’s Department of Children and Families issued a report alleging Casey was responsible for her daughter’s death.
The report stated that “the alleged perpetrator’s actions, or lack thereof, ultimately resulted in or contributed to the death of the
Where Does Casey’s Dad Come In?
Casey accuses her father, George, and brother, Lee, of sexually abusing her in The Docuseries.
“When I was eight years old, my father began to enter my room at night,” she explained. She also stated that her brother “began coming in shortly after I turned 12” and continued until she was 15.
She also claims in the documents that her father abused Caylee.
In the documentary, Casey claims that she fell asleep with Caylee by her side and awoke to find George holding Caylee’s wet body. “He took her away from me and walked away… “I don’t know where she went or what he did,” she said, per Et
George previously stated that he attempted to reconcile with his daughter before her allegations were revealed in the documentary. According to the New York Post, he was recently photographed outside his Orlando home but has not publicly commented on the allegations made there.
Caylee, according to Casey, is being cared for by her Father. “I truly believed Caylee was still alive during the 31 days,” she said. “My father kept telling me that she was fine.” I had to continue to follow his instructions. “I just knew I had to do what he wanted.”
