The letters that Casey wrote to two jailed friends are full of untruths and contradictions, and I’ve only read to page 12.
However, there is a great deal of startling information, too. According to WFTV, Casey admits to using chloroform to put Caylee to sleep, and also claims her mother brought chloroform home.
Another startling revelation is Casey’s admissions of sexual abuse by her brother, Lee Anthony.
Abuse made me do it?
Casey claims that for three years her brother Lee Anthony sexually abused her. She writes that it was only after telling her brother she’d kill him if he didn’t stop, that he did stop.
She also claims that her father “may” have abused her. She claims that memories are coming back to her now and she is beginning to realize that her father was also sexually abusive towards her.
After telling her mother of Lee’s nocturnal visits to her bedroom, Casey writes that Cindy’s reaction to her disclosure about Lee’s abuse was “like a knife in the chest.” Cindy allegedly, said to Casey: “So that’s why you’re a whore?”
I tend to believe that Casey was abused, but there are thousands of millions of abuse victims in this world who do not kill their own children. For me, if this is indeed true, it makes me disgusted at Lee, but does not change my view about Casey.
George and River Cruz
According to WFTV, the interview with River Cruz reveals a great deal about the dynamics of the Anthony family. (The transcript of that interview was also released today.)
George reportedly said that Cindy and Casey are just alike, and that Cindy has “battery acid running through her veins” (WFTV).
In addition, a security guard at River Cruz’s community verified that George Anthony was a frequent visitor there.
According to WFTV, River Cruz states that she and George were very close friends with whom he entrusted a great deal of information. River Cruz told the detectives in her interview with them that George nearly choked Casey and said: “I know you killed her. What did you do with her?”
Funny that George sings a new tune now.
