This is one of the strangest cases I have ever seen. Caylee Marie Anthony, then 2 years old, just shy of turning 3 has been missing since mid-June but her mother Casey Anthony didn’t bother to report her missing until 31 days later and even then it was Casey’s mother, Cindy Anthony that made the famous 911 call.

Casey Anthony is being charged with first degree murder along with several other charges in the Orange County Jail without bond and her court date for the murder charges is set for January 5th. Her defense team did manage to talk a judge into postponing her check fraud trial until after the murder trial is set.

Casey has done absolutely nothing to help find her daughter that she claims has been kidnapped by the Nanny and has in fact lied time after time to authorities about events in the case leading them on wild goose chases.

The defense team working on Casey’s case has told the public that Caylee is still alive. Jose Baez, head of the team has said “We all believe she’s alive” just this Wednesday. He has stood by Casey ‘closely’ throughout all of this. Some even think a bit “too close” even. This is why this new report that has leaked out surprises the hell out of me.

Eyewitness News says that behind the scenes, the defense sent 30 pages of documents to prosecutors. The documents contain the shocking statements with Casey’s lawyers arguing that if Caylee is dead, “it was almost certainly a tragic accident.” They go on to say that Caylee could have been poisoned by chloroform or she could have died while she was sedated. They state that the cause of death could have been an unwitting overdose of a sedative.

They describe Casey of being troubled and possibly depressed. They claim her behavior had been erratic since Caylee was born and particularly in the months before little Caylee’s disappearance. They claim that Casey’s lack of emotion after Caylee disappeared is proof that Casey is not normal and could possibly be suffering from mental or emotional stress.

This was all issued as an argument that the death penalty is not an appropriate sentence in Casey’s case because she is young and she doesn’t even have a criminal record. CNN’s Nancy Grace held the document up on the air on her Show Wednesday night so all this is in writing. My question is what is wrong with this picture? Does the team think Caylee is really dead or is Jose Baez the only one on the legal team that has fallen for Casey’s lies and manipulation?

What the hell is wrong with these people? Do they really think anyone is going to buy into this story? Hell we all know Casey Anthony has problems. She is flat out crazy and sick but she knows damn well what she is doing. She plans ahead of time to cover her tracks and she is damn good at it too. The problem is too many people are seeing through her lies now. People have gotten to know how she operates and they are aware of her way of manipulating others into believing her lies. The death penalty-qualified attorney that is helping Jose Baez said he wanted Casey to be evaluated by a nationally known psychologist who was involved by the Unabomber and the Elizabeth Smart cases because he thinks Casey is mentally ill but Baez refuses to agree to it. Like I said Casey isn’t mentally ill. They probably have been planning on using that as a plan E in case their defense plans A, B, C or D fail, so it is too early to go that route.

Let’s say Casey did kill Caylee strictly by accident. We all know that accidents do happen and they can not always be prevented. Accidents that take one’s life can’t always be avoided. If this was the case, Casey would STILL be guilty of covering it up and putting everyone through a living hell trying to cover her own butt. In my book that makes her just as guilty as if she had killed the child on purpose. If it had been an accident she should have told someone and not hid it this way.

If you have an accident on the highway that caused a death, and you run away from it, that makes you look guiltier by running from it. Then you have even more charges on you besides vehicular homicide. You have leaving the scene of an accident plus who knows what other charges.

This would be the same case here but this is only looking at it from their side. Personally I think she killed Caylee by accident and when she realized what she did, she was in her own sick little mind free of the responsibility of having a daughter to have to tend to. I think this is why she did the things she did in order to celebrate her new found freedom. In her mind she was happy it turned out this way even if she didn’t intentionally do it and she thought she could get away with it. Who knows what is going through this woman’s mind.

I saw a video clip on TV where Cindy Anthony made a statement saying that she trusts her daughter and I had to laugh. I thought to myself, yeah right, about as much as the public trusts Cindy Anthony right now too. She lies as much as Casey does. Cindy lies when it is convenient for her. She lies to make sure everything goes her way.

I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes, that’s for sure. As for little Caylee, who stood up for her when she was being fed sedatives if this is what killed her? How could a 2 year old defend herself against her mother? She couldn’t unfortunately. Now little Caylee is paying for her mother’s mistakes with her life. So sad… so uncalled for… it brings tears to my eyes thinking about it.

I can’t sleep at night thinking about Caylee. I have bags under my eyes because I don’t sleep. Look at Casey’s eyes. They look well rested don’t they? They surely don’t look like the eyes of a mother that hasn’t seen her daughter in almost 5 months. Now tell me if this woman deserves the ‘Mother of the Year’ Award. I think the only one that thinks that is Cindy Anthony.

Caylee I feel in my heart that you are with the angels in heaven and they are watching over you right now. The world lost you before we got to know you and we mourn you as though you were one of our own but we know you are in a better place now. God Bless you sweetheart. We love you! The world will never forget you.
