Lee Anthony’s Deposition Today Was Kinda Freaky

Murder suspect Casey Anthony’s brother Lee Anthony gave a video deposition today in the Zenaida Gonzales defamation case against Casey. Zenaida is trying to get her good name back…after Casey said her (imaginary) nanny was named Zenaida Gonzales, Zenaida got death threats, lost work, and basically had her world turned upside down.

Lee’s deposition was at times very strange, both with his responses and his body language. He laughed several times, acting more like he was hanging out with his buds instead of being in a very serious questioning session.

Under oath, Lee Anthony said that, to this day, he believes everything his sister tells him. Two weeks before the family reported Caylee missing, Lee Anthony said he started looking for Caylee himself. He said he caught his sister lying about being in Jacksonville.

In the deposition, Lee Anthony also admitted he’d never heard Gonzalez’s name before his sister’s arrest in July. Still, based on how his sister described the baby sitter, he was able to say that to his knowledge the woman that his sister described as the person who took Caylee was not the Zenaida Gonzalez who had filed the defamation lawsuit.

Attorneys asked Lee Anthony if he thought his sister was leading him on a false chase.

“After all the stories and inconsistencies, did you ever start to doubt Casey or think that she was leading you on a ‘wild goose hunt’ yourself?”

“No,” Lee Anthony said. “Um, you know, I don’t believe that I’ve been on a wild goose hunt. I believe that there’s probably more information that I could be given, whether it’s been withheld from me on purpose or she just doesn’t know to share it or what’s relevant to share or that someone else hasn’t shared something with me. But I do believe that there’s truth to a lot of what I’ve been told.”

When asked about the VERY strange “C.M.A.” speech at Caylee’s funeral, Lee said there are three women in his family with those initials: his mom, his sister and Caylee. Anyone who has seen this footage can’t help but feel creepy. It’s clearly directed at Casey, and it makes those “incest” rumors seem actually plausible.

Casey Anthony’s Brother Lee Anthony Lawyers Up

There has been a lot of speculation about indicted Casey Anthony’s brother Lee Anthony, ranging from the plausible (obstruction of justice) to the bizarre (incest). Lee’s been pretty quiet for a while, and has been laying low for the past several months. It seems, however, that the heat is on for brother Lee, and he’s hired himself a lawyer too. Now, parents George and Cindy, Lee as well as Casey Anthony are all legally covering their collective asses. None of the Anthonys have been cooperative and truthful with investigators from start to finish in the Caylee/Casey Anthony investigation.

Lee has hired attorney Thomas Luka, who says that while the Florida State Attorney’s Office has not filed any charges against his client, it could still happen.

“It’s possible criminal charges could be filed if the state feels that Lee Anthony mislead law enforcement officials or tampered with evidence in any way.”

While Luka maintains Lee has fully cooperated with authorities, hiring an attorney was the right move because Lee and his parents are also considered witnesses in the case against Casey.

Luka said, so far, the state has not subpoenaed his client to testify. However, if that happens, Luka said he’ll make sure Lee gets full immunity from any possible charges he might face. There has been speculation that Lee is the father of murdered little Caylee Anthony. Authorities say they know who Caylee’s father is, but have not released the information to the public. It could possibly come out during Casey Anthony’s murder trial.

Caylee’s body was found very near the Anthony home, but before it was positively identified, Cindy and George asked for a full immunity deal. Why would the Anthony’s want an immunity deal now? Attorney Brad Conway confirmed that grandparents of Caylee Anthony knowingly provided “conflicting statements” to police in the past. Will both Cindy and George Anthony be charged with obstruction of justice charges as well? The plot thickens.
