On July 15, 2008, Cindy Anthony called the police saying her daughter Casey Anthony stole her car and some money. Later that same day the police received another call from the same person saying that her granddaughter Caylee Anthony had been gone for over a month. When this was heard, they knew they had a big case on their hands. The mother Casey Anthony was taken into custody and told many lies concerning the whereabouts of her daughter. The police began to investigate and found some interesting things that could very well prove Casey Anthony guilty of kidnapping and murder of her own daughter.
In July of 2008, one of the biggest crime cases devastated the United States nation-wide. The death of Caylee Anthony, a two year old baby, became the most popular topic in a brief amount of time. Caylee’s mother, Casey Anthony, became the main suspect after the child supposedly was kidnapped and went missing. To this day, the Casey Anthony case shocks me because justice, in my opinion, wasn’t served. I feel as if the criminal conviction system became somewhat corrupted in this case. The entire nation, including the court system, knew that Casey Anthony was behind this criminal act, but yet she escaped all charges. I chose this case not only because it’s debatable, but also to help state the obvious, this case was handled the wrong way.
An 18-year old girl by the name of Alexis Manigo was kidnapped when she was just a newborn baby. Her biological parents Craig Aiken and Shanara Mobley, were shocked when they found out their baby girl had been found after all this time. According to New York Times, the couple had been storing a piece of birthday cake in their freezer every year on their daughter’s birthday since her disappearance. Born Kamiyah Mobley, she was only eight hours old when Gloria Williams, a woman who disguised herself as a nurse took her from the cradle at Jacksonville, Florida hospital. The woman is now in custody and the child is now with her real parents. They had a blessed reunion and her biological father says “First meeting was
Caylee Anthony was reported missing by her grandmother, Cindy, on July fifthtenth. Her body was found in a wooded area near her home on December eleventh. Casey Anthony was later arrested for child neglect. The jury should have charged and sentenced Casey with the murder of Caylee for these reasons: she lied to the police multiple times during her integration, for example her saying that Caylee was kidnapped by her nanny, another reason being that there were no other suspects that had the motive to partake in this murder, lastly the medical records all point back to Casey for more reasons
One of the most controversial and polemic trials of all times since the OJ Simpson trial was the case of Casey Anthony and the murder of her two year old daughter.

Casey told detectives several lies, including that her nanny had kidnapped Caylee on June 9, and that she had been trying to find her, too frightened to alert the authorities. She was charged with first-degree murder in October 2008 and pleaded not guilty. The prosecution sought the death penalty and alleged Casey murdered her daughter to be free from parental responsibilities by administering chloroform and applying duct tape. The defense team countered that the child had drowned accidentally in the family’s swimming pool on June 16, 2008, and that George Anthony disposed of the body. The defense contended that Casey lied about these issues due to a dysfunctional upbringing, which was said to include sexual abuse by her father. On June 5, 2011, the jury found Casey not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter of a child, but guilty of four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer. She was released on a bond of $500,000 and a Florida court overturned two of the misdemeanor convictions on January 25, 2013.
Going to school, attending college, and getting married are a few of the many activities Caylee Anthony will never get to experience. When Caylee went missing and was later found dead in 2008, her entire future ended abruptly. Whether the Anthony family murdered Caylee as a scapegoat for their own problems or Caylee 's death was a tragic accident, no one was convicted for her death. Although never brought to court, evidence suggests George Anthony killed his granddaughter, Caylee, and manipulated the evidence to direct the public’s eye away from himself.
The Casey Anthony trial involves the death of her two year old daughter Caylee Anthony. Casey Anthony is accused of killing her daughter. Casey Anthony claims her two-year-old Caylee Anthony is missing On June 9, 2008 in Orange County, Florida. Anthony later tells police she dropped Caylee off at a babysitter's apartment. The name that Casey had given to the police officers was Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez. On June 16th 2008 was the last Caylee grandparents saw her alive.

Much has happened in these past few years before her trial was set. Caylee Anthony's body wasn't found for 6 months (people.com). The crime-scene investigators recovered more of Caylee’s bones, along with many others that belonged to animals (Fanning, 314).

When Casey was 19 her family noticed that she was gaining weight, while her parents suspected she was pregnant, Casey claimed that she was still a virgin. Seven months into her pregnancy she finally came out and told her family that she was pregnant, and that she didn’t know who the father was. Casey and her mom had a fight about seeing a photo online of Casey at a no clothes party; Cindy accused Casey of being an unfit mother and threatened to try and take custody of Caylee. The next day, after the argument with her mother Casey took Caylee and told her parents that she was going to Tampa and work at Universal Studios. Her parents got a letter in the mail saying that Casey’s car was at a tow yard. George went to get the car and smelled something awful like a decomposing body, not long after Cindy and George found out that Caylee was missing and that is when the murder case began. I think Casey is guilty because she is a liar, she has a low tolerance for boredom, and she was highly secretive (“Casey” 1).
On December 11, 2008 the remains of Caylee Anthony were discovered by a utility worker at approximately 9:32 a.m. eastern time.
