Latest development pertaining to the Caylee Anthony case is the suicide attempt by Grandfather George Anthony this weekend. If we look closer at what took place between Thursday when George went missing and Friday when he was found, it’s obvious that this was more a cry for help than an actual suicide attempt.
By not showing up for several meetings that George had on Thursday (one for a job interview and another with a friend) and by leaving text messages to family and friends telling them he “didn’t want to live anymore and that he wanted to be with Caylee” is a sure sign that he wanted to be found! Otherwise he would have hid himself in a motel somewhere with the five page suicide letter he had written, and downed the bottles of medication with alcohol as he intended.
The tragedy that Casey Anthony has put her family through let alone the death of her beautiful little daughter is a tragedy indeed! This is not a Maddie McCann case where it’s uncertain who took this beautiful child, or whether it was Maddie’s parents or an intruder who harmed her. We don’t even know whether she’s dead or still alive somewhere! There are more unanswered questions surrounding little Maddie’s disappearance, but this is certainly not the case in the Caylee Anthony murder.
The question that most people want to know from the overwhelming evidence is how could a mother murder her child and then go about her life for one month as though nothing in the world was the matter! People have a hard time seeing her in the video store laughing and renting a movie with her boyfriend as though she didn’t have a care in the world! And apparently she didn’t! Why else would she get a tattoo saying Bella Vita (Beautiful Life) when she knew her daughter just died?
Instead Casey Anthony was out partying every night in nightclubs and bars, she went on shopping sprees cleaning out a girl-friend’s savings account by thousands of dollars. Her purchases were all for herself and not one item was spent on Caylee because she knew that Caylee was no longer alive. What could have pushed this selfish woman to kill such a beautiful little child? When you see this two year old toddler looking at her great-grandfather on Father’s Day and her young mind is aware enough to understand that he must be exhausted with the family there in the nursing home upsetting his daily routine and the small child has the compassion to ask him, “Papa, are you tired Papa?”
What could have pushed Casey Anthony to take her young child’s life? Most people want to believe she was pushed over the edge or that it was an accident; we can’t phanthom the idea that perhaps she was planning this way ahead of time, searching the internet for the perfect murder, the perfect crime. Evidence points to that being the case and still we don’t want to believe it! People want to believe that it was an accident and that Casey Anthony put a heart sticker over the child’s mouth because she loved her daughter. Have they thought that maybe Casey Anthony besides being a sociopath and narcissistic, that maybe she’s also sadistic? Was that how she got Caylee to keep her mouth shut, by playing a game with her and putting a heart sticker over her mouth and then putting the duct tape over that and then placing her in the trunk of her car?
Maya Muses: For what reason?…..Freedom. Casey Anthony was young and she wanted to be free! If justice is done (unlike Joran van der Sloot in the Natalee Holloway case) then that freedom will be taken away from Casey Anthony for the rest of her life, just like she took her child’s life away.
A question many are asking is, will the Death Penalty come back into play?
