article imageAnthonys Appear on Larry King Supporting Daughter Casey

By Carol Forsloff     May 14, 2009 in Crime
George and Cindy Anthony appeared on Larry King with their attorney Brad Conway on Wednesday evening. They offered little new information but said they are behind Casey 100%.
Caylee Anthony, George and Cindy’s granddaughter, age two, went missing summer 2008. Her body was discovered in December, and her mother Casey, daughter of George and Cindy, is now in jail waiting to be tried for the capital murder of Caylee.
King said his show had received thousands of blog responses about the Anthony’s appearance, most of them critical. He asked the Anthonys why they thought so many people were angry with them. The Anthonys said bloggers and others are just picking them apart and trying to make something out of the tragedy.
The Anthonys say their motivation for appearing on shows like Larry King Live is in keeping Caylee’s name alive. They declare they are helping other people who have similar heartaches. They say it is difficult to visit their daughter because would end up on the news immediately. Visits are monitored and taped, so that’s their barrier to visits. They also maintain they haven’t had a chance to talk to their daughter since all of this happened, following the finding of their granddaughter Caylee’s body in December because of the disclosures.
The Anthonys both said they don’t believe they have a child, referring to Casey, who could do such a terrible thing as kill someone. Their attorney said they are between a rock and a hard place, where they are sharing their grief publicly while addressing their own personal grief as well. They now have set up a website to answer their critics.
George Anthony broke down momentarily when his attempt at suicide was discussed. Cindy said she wrote suicide notes but never acted on them. They declare their faith is getting stronger every day and rely on it for support.
King continually asked questions about the evidence that has been released about the case and the pictures shown of Casey having fun while her daughter was missing. The Anthonys state they don’t know why this happened but that Casey said she was looking for clues to find her daughter.
Conway asserted the case against Casey is largely circumstantial and has problems. For example, he said there was no evidence about a heart-shaped sticker and duct tape, despite King’s repeated questions and mentioning how it had been in the news.
The Anthonys were asked several times about visiting their daughter but said they wouldn’t so long as the visits were monitored and would appear in the news negatively about Casey.
