Casey Anthony on the Death of Her Daughter: “I Sleep Pretty Good At Night!”
Casey Anthony is best known for her court case which she’d made headlines for after news was first brought to light that people believed that she’d murdered her precious two-year-old daughter.
Despite gaining acquittal, it has been nearly nine years since the unfortunate and questionable event took place and she still insists that she doesn’t know what happened during the last hours of her daughter’s life.
“Caylee would be 12 right now. And would be a total badass,” she told The Associated Press in one of a series of exclusive interviews.
But discussing Caylee’s last moments, the 30-year-old Anthony spoke in halting, sober tones: “I’m still not even certain as I stand here today about what happened,” she said.
“Based off what was in the media” — the story of a woman who could not account for a month in which her child was missing, whose defense involved an accidental drowning for which there was no eyewitness testimony — “I understand the reasons people feel about me. I understand why people have the opinions that they do.”
This has been the first time that Anthony has spoken to media outlets after the death of her child. Her responses were quite revealing, bizarre and extremely contradictory, and they’d ultimately raised even more eyebrows in question when it comes to the case that once captivated our entire country.
Caylee first went missing more than nine years ago, and the trial in favor of her death was carried out on live television and found itself to be the focus of daily commentary by Nancy Grace of HLN, who’d openly called Anthony “the most hated mom in America.”
The child was allegedly last seen on June 16th of 2008, and was first reported missing by Anthony’s mother on July 15th. Just one day later Anthony was arrested on charges of child neglect. She claimed that Caylee went missing after disappearing with a baby sitter.
A utility worker found the skeletal remains of the little girl on December 11th of the same year and they were later determined to have been the bones of Caylee Anthony.
Experts testified in the trial, revealing that air samples indicated that there were decaying human remains in the truck of Anthony’s car and they were, in fact, those of her daughter.
In the end it was proven that Anthony was a liar, however, attorneys were able to convince the jury of little else. The government never established how Caylee died and her mother’s DNA was never found on the duct tape that they claimed was used to suffocate the poor baby girl.
Anthony now admits that she did lie to officers about having a job at Universal Studios, leaving Caylee with a babysitter, telling two people that Caylee was missing and receiving a phone call from her daughter on the day that she was reported missing.
“Even if I would’ve told them everything that I told to the psychologist, I hate to say this but I firmly believe I would have been in the same place. Because cops believe other cops. Cops tend to victimize the victims. I understand now … I see why I was treated the way I was even had I been completely truthful.”
Closing out the interview, the white mother of one said: “I don’t give a s— about what anyone thinks about me, I never will… I’m OK with myself, I sleep pretty good at night.”
