Greta van Susteren interviewed Casey Anthony's mother and father tonight. There is video of part of the interview at the link.
These people make less and less sense as time goes on. Cindy and George, lined up on the couch with their tiny dogs and their identical "Find Caylee" T-shirts, nodding like a couple of bobble-head dolls when Greta asks them if they believe Casey. "One hundred percent," they say. When Greta points out that Casey has lied, Cindy says, "Lying is not a crime."
The woman is turning into a pretzel, trying to reconcile the lies Casey has told with the evidence that has been collected by the police.
The last time anybody saw Caylee was June 16th, when George said Casey left with her to take her to the nanny's, and told her father that she'd see him in the morning, because she might be working late (yeah, right).
(When did a babysitter become a nanny? It used to be that a nanny was a live-in child care person.)
Apparently, in the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Casey didn't go to work, because she didn't have a job. And she didn't take Caylee to the nanny, because there is no nanny. Not by the name Casey gave, and not at the address Casey gave.
In between that day, and the day nearly a month later, when Cindy and George got a notice in the mail that Casey's car had been impounded, Casey was having a high old time, getting her picture taken at parties with the ones she called friends. Like the boyfriend she met on May 23rd and moved in with sometime in the third week of June. Oddly enough, Casey told him that Caylee was with her parents. Moving in with Mr Party when you've only known him three weeks is not very smart.
She borrowed a shovel from her parents' next door neighbour, telling the neighbour that she couldn't get into her mother's shed to get theirs. I wonder what she needed the shovel for...
In one of Cindy's multiple calls to 911, she told the dispatcher that the car smelled as if there had been a dead body in there. She tried to chalk that one up to pizza when questioned about it later on. Again, I say, "Yeah, right!" Having had vast experience of dead pizza, and more than enough experience of dead bodies to last a lifetime, I can categorically state that the one smells nothing like the other.
Personally, my opinion is that Caylee is dead. I think her mom left her in a car, or otherwise caused her death by neglect rather than deliberate murder. I think she has been trying to think up a good enough story to get herself off the hook, ever since. I think that, on some level, she is glad to be in jail. That way, the reporters can't grill her the way they are grilling her mother and dad.
Nasty little miss "let's-party-on-even-though-I-have-a-baby" couldn't face down Nancy Grace or Greta. She doesn't have the cojones.
Missing and Abducted Here is some more interesting discussion about Cindy and George and last night's interviews.
The above link to "Missing and Abducted" has a link to some search warrants detailing probable cause and some results. Very interesting reading.
