We all saw how Casey Anthony’s parents lied repeatedly when they appeared in the media before and after the trial. We also saw how they lied on the stand as there were multiple signals of deception observed.
We now how it was most likely Cindy’s control and short leash as well as her denial over Casey with her multiple problems and telling her troubled daughter her that she would throw her out of the house, threatening to keep Caylee, that no doubt lead to one of the most tragiic stories of the decade.
As we all know, a jury acquitted their daughter which shocked everyone including Casey, who most people, according to surveys believe she is responsible for Caylee’s demise. People have blamed the jury, the prosecutors, the arrogance of Jeff Ashton, and even Judge Perry or a combination of all three as to why she is now free. But the fact remains she is a free woman who even has a cadre of supporters and new attorneys who work for free in exchange for fame and media attention.
Just when we thought we put this TOXIC family behind us,l we just discovered that Mr. and Mrs. Anthony have now decided to once again profit from their granddaughter’s death and sell off her belongings.
While I can’t fault them of getting rid of Caylee’s belongings , I can blame them for selling them and prtofiting off of them. They no doubt profited off of the charity and interviews and licensing personal photos of Caylee to the media. But this is repulsve in my view.
If they donated her things to a hospital or to a women’s abuse shelter, or to a police department or to needy children, it would give a different message than the one they are giving by selling her things.
What they are saying point blank, is that since they lt their beloved granddaughter is dead , they are I entitled to getting something out of this ordeal- money. They feel they deserve it. They want to recoup the money they doled out on Caylee when she was alive. Since there was no insurance money for them and since interviews have dried up, book deals are a thing of the past, and their Caylee Charity is no longer profitable, they decided to do one last thing to capitalize off of this tragedy- make some money off of Caylee’s toys and furniture and clothing.
Unfortunately they will have buyers who want an item Caylee had as a remembrance. to her precious life. But these buyers no doubt did not consider the other side of the story- that their money will go into the Anthony’s pockets so they can perhaps take another cruise or buy what they want. If they had considered it, perhaps many of them wouldn’t have purchased Caylee’s items.
Apparently Lee and his now wife Mallory had a baby boy in April. They may decide to have another child in the future an that child may be a girl. Some would feel comforted to pass her lovely toy and belongings on to another member of the family. On the other hand Lee and Mallory may feel it is too painful a reminder for them.
Like it or not, a now free Casey, could spawn another child and that child could be a girl. Maybe she could have used Caylee’s items for her new child (God forbid). Her parent’s could have placed Caylee’s things in storage for the daughter for whom they liied and committed perjury. The it would be up to Casey to keep them or destroy them justl like she may have done did with Caylee.
In my view George and Cindy have shown their toxicity once again. What would be a positive and redeeming gesture on their part would be if they gave the money they earned over to Texas Equi search who spent so much money and effort trying to find little Caylee when all along they knew she was dead. But I doubt that will ever happen. They are too selfish, self consumed as most of us have seen to do something that noble in my view.
May Caylee RIP .
