Three former roommates of Casey Anthony‘s ex-boyfriend all claimÂ CaseyÂ moved in with himÂ mid-June pretty much full-timeÂ and there was no sign of her missing daughter Caylee Anthony afterwards. The defense team for Casey Anthony is now claiming that 2-year-old Caylee Anthony drowned in the Anthony family pool on June 16, 2008 and was never ‘missing’ at all — despite her mother’s previous claims.
A girlfriend of one of the former roommates testified that Casey Anthony was partying and participated in a ‘hot body contest’ at a club during the time Caylee had vanished. One of the ex-roommates of Anthony’s boyfriend, Nathan Lezniewicz, said he never saw any indication Casey Anthony was upset or sad during the time Caylee was missing.
Former roommate Roy House testified that after Anthony started staying regularly with then boyfriend Anthony Lazzaro, he stopped seeing Caylee around. When asked where Caylee was, House saidÂ Anthony would say the little girl was “with the nanny” but would not give the name of the babysitter.
Casey Anthony originally claimed her 2-year-old daughter Caylee Anthony was kidnapped by her babysitter. Anthony’s defense attorney, Jose Baez, has now told the court that Caylee drowned accidentally in her grandparents swimming pool. He also claims Casey’s father, George Anthony, helped in covering up the toddler’s death and molested Casey as a child — both allegations he vehemently denies.
