Former Roommates Say Casey Anthony Partied While Daughter Was Missing

Three former roommates of Casey Anthony‘s ex-boyfriend all claim Casey moved in with him mid-June pretty much full-time 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.

Casey Anthony Mug Shot

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 said 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.

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.

Part 1: Link to the rest of the deposition at the end of this post.

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.

Report: State Says Casey Anthony Intentionally Killed Caylee


New reports this evening in the Caylee Anthony homicide case…the state of Florida believes that Caylee’s death was not an accident, that the duct tape was intentionally placed over the child’s mouth, and that Caylee was killed in June. The tests have now been run on Caylee’s hair found at the scene, and it matches the hair found in the trunk of Casey’s car. This directly places Caylee’s body in the trunk of the car. Evidence points to Casey killing little 2 year-old Caylee intentionally, and alone.

Sources also say investigators have established a time frame of death that dates back to June, according to reports returned by forensic botanists and entomologists. They were brought in to analyze the terrain and insect growth where Caylee’s remains were found. Biological growth was found growing up through the skeleton, and bug evidence was also analyzed. These insect and botanical studies can pinpoint how long the body was there at the crime scene with amazing accuracy. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (The Body Farm) said that there was 2.6 days of human decomposition evident in Casey’s trunk.

A hair which showed signs of decomposition was also found in the trunk. Sources said the hair matches hair taken from Caylee’s remains. Investigators believe the time frame coupled with other evidence- the duct tape found over the mouth of Caylee’s skull, high levels of chloroform detected in the trunk and cell phone pings from Anthony’s phone that place her near the crime scene in mid-June…points only to Casey as the killer. Officials now firmly believe that Casey acted intentionally, and alone.

Casey and her mother Cindy had a huge fight the night of June 15th, when Cindy confronted Casey about money she had stolen from the family. Cindy reportedly was so angry she put her hands around Casey’s throat. Casey took Caylee and left the house, and that was the last time anyone saw Caylee alive. Casey always had an animosity with her mother. Additionally, Casey’s boyfriend at the time told police that he’d told Casey he didn’t want to have female children; that he wanted sons.

Motive doesn’t have to be proven to convict someone of murder. Premeditated or not, Casey committed aggravated child-abuse towards Casey. Sources said although a cause of Caylee’s death may never be known, Casey will be convicted based on extremely strong evidence. This means there must have been significant evidence of Casey being at the crime scene where Caylee was found…fingerprints, DNA, possibly other definitive, forensic evidence.

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.

Second Search Of Caylee Anthony’s Home Today: “Well Coordinated Strike”

Orange County Florida authorities conducted a second search of George and Cindy Anthony’s house today, one day after the sad news was announced that little Caylee Anthony WAS dead, via homicide. This was the only home Caylee had ever known, she lived there with her grandparents and (sociopath) mom Casey, who is charged with her murder.

Investigators cleared the crime scene where Caylee’s remains were found, just around the corner from the Anthony home. Right after the crime scene was cleared, detectives served another search warrant. Sheriff’s spokesman Captain Nieves said that the search was a result of additional clues that had been found at the crime scene. A “very well coordinated strike”, is how Fox News’ Phil Keating characterized the happenings.

CSI vans and detectives descended upon the house. Immediately, onlookers followed, walking from the crime scene to the house, and watching the search unfold from the street. em>Something new found at the scene gave them probable cause to conduct the 2 hour search, and it probably wasn’t bone-related. Search warrants must be very specific. Whatever authorities found, it was likely something small…they’ve combed the crime scene for over a week on their hands and knees. Snarkista hopes it keeps Casey from sleeping at night in her cell.

Breaking: Caylee Anthony’s Remains Officially, Positively Identified

* UPDATE: Casey Anthony Sentenced to 4 Years Minus Time Served: Jurors Felt Sick Over Verdict

Little Caylee Anthony’s remains have been positively, officially identified. Dr. Jan Garavaglia of the Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner’s Office ( “Dr. G”) made the announcement, saying:

“With regret I am here to inform you that the remains found on December 11th are those of missing Caylee Anthony. The ID was made by nuclear DNA, performed by the FBI lab in Quantico, Va. The remains have been retained at the morgue in Orlando. The remains are completely skeletonized, no soft tissue, no trauma to the bones. Toxicology will continue on bones and hair, but will not be definitive on cause of death. The manner of death in this case is HOMICIDE, and will be listed as homicide by undetermined means.”

Sheriff Kevin Beary, Director Joyce Dawley of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Dr. Jan Garavaglia of the Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner’s Office, Special agent Steven Ibison of the Federal Bureau of Investigations and Orange County Chief Ron Stucker were all present. The press conference stage was set with a huge picture of Caylee.

Dr. G would not discuss the particulars of the case, but commended all of the investigators and crime scene workers for a superb job. She said that some of the bones were tiny, that a child’s skeleton has many more bones than an adult skeleton. Her report will not be released until the toxicology is finished.

Sheriff Beary said that he could not discuss the evidence that was found at the scene, because of an agreement with the prosecutors. He acknowledged it has been a long, expensive case, but that you can’t put a price tag on finding a little child. He said the meter reader who found the remains has been cooperative, and was doing what a good citizen would have done.

Kelly Kwas of the Orange County Government said the water meter-reader who discovered the remains will make a statement at the county administration building at 201 Rosalind Avenue in Orlando at 3:30 p.m. The meter reader, Roy Kronk, had called in tips to the authorities 3 times in August before finding the remains. He is not considered a suspect, but authorities are investigating the responses by officials to his previous calls.

Casey Anthony, Caylee’s 22 year old mother has already been charged with Caylee’s murder, and has been rotting sitting in the Orange County Jail. Her attorney, Jose Baez headed over to the jail about an hour ago to be with her during the press conference. Reportedly, Casey was informed of the findings before the announcement.

The location where the remains were found is the exact same place where Casey buried her pets when they would die. How telling that sociopath Casey doesn’t see any difference between her daughter and a PET. Evidence at the scene has been linked to items in the Anthony home. It has been confirmed that clothes (a small bathing suit and dress) were found with the remains inside the garbage bag, and that Caylee’s sheets were taken from the Anthony home when it was searched the evening of the 11th and morning of the 12th.

Investigators are still sifting through the crime scene, and the scene is continuing to be meticulously combed. It is only about a quarter mile from the Anthony house. and they are still finding “additional items.” We already know that many more small bones have been found, and that a picture from the crime scene seemed to show a book that looked very similar to one Caylee was shown reading in a home video. Orange County Sheriff spokesman Angelo Nieves said, “we continue to sift through the location,” he said, adding it has grown to more than half an acre. Various experts for the state are being flown in to examine the scene. An anthropologist and an entomologist have been involved in the investigation as well.

It was revealed by WFTV that Casey’s friend Amy Huizenga sent a Facebook message to her in late May, saying “You lost my duct tape- I was excited to have so much left. That’s what I get for giving you my purse.”

Once investigators have completed their investigation of the site, the defense team representing 22-year-old Casey Anthony must be granted access by the owner of the vacant lot before they can complete their own investigation.

Grandparents George and Cindy Anthony have requested full immunity, have admitted to making “conflicting statements”, and are prepared to make a NEW statement via their attorney. Somehow I don’t see this idea going very far. George and Cindy could easily be charged with several counts of obstruction of justice. They MAY know the entire story, though, so it will be interesting to see if they are granted immunity from prosecution. And where the hell is Casey’s brother Lee? Dude has been totally AWOL, and has refused to be fingerprinted and to take a polygraph.

This family puts the FUNK in Dysfunctional. It is so toxic that a little girl lost her life. The JAIL called for a pastor to visit Casey the other day, not Casey herself. He said that she needs prayer. Indeed. The pastor tried to visit Casey today. Casey chose not to take the call, and instead spent the time with her attorney.

Did Investigators Find Caylee Anthony’s Book At Remains Site?

* UPDATE: Casey Anthony Sentenced to 4 Years Minus Time Served: Jurors Felt Sick Over Verdict


One of the 171 photos released Thursday by investigators shows a slight opening in the brush — and what appears to be a hard-cover book.

On a day filled with developments in the case of missing toddler Caylee Marie Anthony, including news that the man who discovered human remains last week called in the same tip three times in August, a single photograph brought forth as many questions as it answered.

Did investigators searching a wooded area for skeletal remains possibly also find a book that Caylee liked to read?

One of the 171 photos released Thursday by investigators shows a slight opening in the brush, and what appears to be a hard-cover book. To some observers, that object appears similar to a book that Caylee is seen reading on a video made by her grandparents, the last visual evidence of the toddler before she was reported missing in July.

Sheriff’s Capt. Angelo Nieves said he had not seen the crime-scene photos and could not comment on their content. He said he would not ask investigators about the photo.

Forensic results from tests done on the remains are expected to be released at any time.
