article image911 Calls Released In Case Of Missing Child; Mother Did Not Report Them For 5 Weeks

By Susan Duclos     Jul 25, 2008 in Crime
The police have released the tapes of 911 calls made to authorities by the grandmother of the missing two-year-old Caylee Marie Anthony. The child was missing for five weeks before it was reported to the police.
In the original article written about this case, early information showed that the grandparents, whom Caylee and her mother lived with, had said that Caylee's mother, Casey, had given them the impression that she was going to work everyday and that Caylee was being cared for by a friend or a nanny.
911 calls recently released show that Cythina Anthony, grandmother to Caylee, said, "No, I'm not giving you another day, I've given you a month."
Casey Anthony claims she dropped her child off at a babysitters, who then absconded with the child, yet the name she gave to authorities was of a woman whom they have spoken to and denies knowing Casey or Caylee.
Casey Anthony is being held on a $500,000 bond while investigators continue to search for the missing child.
At the original bond hearing, the judge was quoted as saying, "You left your 2-year-old child with a person who does not exist at an apartment you cannot identify and you lied to your parents about your child's whereabouts. You cared so little about your child."
The three 911 alls that have been released have been described by some as "chilling" and the first one reported about showed the grandmother, Cynthia, telling the 911 operator:
"I have someone here that needs to be arrested in my home and I have a possibly missing child. I have a 3-year-old that's been missing for a month," a crying Cynthia Anthony tells the dispatcher in the first of two calls to the sheriff's office."
"Have you reported that?" the dispatcher asks Cynthia.
"I'm trying to do that now, ma'am," Cynthia replies.
"What did the person do that you need arrested?" the dispatcher asks.
"My daughter," Cynthia replies. "For stealing an auto and stealing some money."
That call ended and another call was placed by Cynthia to 911, to which she reports Caylee missing, saying "I found out my granddaughter has been taken, she has been missing. My daughter finally admitted that she's been missing. ... My daughter finally admitted that the babysitter stole her. I need to find her."
She goes on to state in that same phone, "There's something wrong. I found my daughter's car today and it smells like there's been a dead body in the damn car."
After Casey's bond hearing, her mother then told reporters that the smell was old rancid pizza with maggots on it, claiming that she wasn't contradicting herself because the pizza had smelled like something died in the car.
In previous reports the investigation had brought authorities to search the backyard of the grandparent's home, to no avail, other reports showed that there was recent work done in that backyard which included a cement slap being laid after the child went missing, but no word on whether that was relevant to the case nor if authorities have looked into it.
According to the arrest affidavit for Casey Anthony, the original charges were neglect of a child, false official statements and obstructing a criminal investigation, although her attorney asserts that Casey has been cooperating with the police, the police contradict that statement.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of, or information on Caylee Marie Anthony are asked to call CrimeLine at (800) 423-TIPS, Orange County Sheriff's office at 407-254-7000, or 407-836-HELP (4357).
