george and cindy – sitting ducks?
Again today, there was no news of note in the Casey Anthony case. So, I did a little digging into the discovery on the WFTV website and I found some very interesting tidbits that I’d like to share.
I was re-reading a Supplemental Report written by Yuri Mellich and released in the April 6, 2010 discovery release.
In the Supplemental Report of April 2010, Yuri Mellich discusses the interviews with Robyn Adams. A conclusion is drawn in this report that says the following, just as I suspected:
Robyn Adams spoke with Casey Anthony the day Caylee Anthony’s remains were found (December 11th, 2008). After a chaplain informed Casey Anthony of the recovery, Casey Anthony told Robyn Adams law enforcement had found the body of a small child with a baby blanket inside a black garbage bag. As a note, the information regarding the baby blanket and black garbage bag was not made known to the jail chaplain so Casey Anthony had knowledge of items only the suspect, certain law enforcement personnel and the certain medical examiner’s personnel knew.
I have read the transcript of the two interviews the FDLE had with Robyn Adams. She had no idea that she was revealing anything when she discussed that Casey Anthony told her they found remains in a black bag with a baby blanket. That is precisely why Robyn Adams testimony will be so strong, and important. Robyn had no idea of the import of what she was saying.
Note: In the discovery that is to be released tomorrow, it’s reported that there will be a recording of Robyn Adams’ police interviews.
George and Cindy
As I was reading various reports and transcripts over the last couple of days, it dawned on me: The Orange County Sheriff’s Office are building a case against the Anthony’s. Now, I have no way of knowing if this is actually what is occurring, but I can’t get past the fact that much of the investigative discovery released to date has to do with George and Cindy!
On the other hand, perhaps a reason George and Cindy are the focus of much of the investigative reports, is due to simply documenting their many inconsistencies. Perhaps the intent is to impeach them on the stand, or charge them with perjury. Either way, I have a real suspicion that when Casey’s case is said and done, there will be obstruction or tampering charges, or they will be implicated somehow in the murder, after the fact.
In the supplemental report (link provided above), a great deal of effort is placed on following up on the claims of George Anthony’s relationship with River Cruz. I don’t doubt that River Cruz’s revelation that Caylee’s murder was, according to George, “… an accident .. that snowballed out of control,” is a critical factor in developing a case against the Anthony’s. This statement tends to prove that George Anthony was aware of what happened to Caylee.
The thought that George and Cindy would be working against their granddaughter is mind-boggling.
They have both lied to the Police and to the FBI. You can’t lie to the FBI and get away with it!
As far as Cindy Anthony goes, there are countless lies, too many to list here. What is troubling is her attempt to manufacture reasonable doubt for her daughter. For instance, she made statements to the Detectives about having Zanny’s phone number; she fabricated a story about hair straightener that Zanny supposedly gave to Casey (that is even on one of the jail videos – Cindy “telling” Casey the hair straighter was Zanny’s), home videos, toys, etc., all belonged to Zanny, said Cindy.
It is one thing to love your daughter, it is a whole different thing to lie to cover up for her, or to manufacture stories and events, hoping they will play out as reasonable doubt. I don’t know what kind of crime that falls under, but surely appears criminal to me, especially since they KNEW the truth!
There is no doubt in my mind that Lee Anthony realized the trouble he would be in should he continue down the path of lies and deceit with his parents. Lee Anthony has use-immunity, I believe. This means that Lee Anthony is protected against self-incrimination. However, if memory serves, I believe he lied at the Morgan Civil deposition. (I will have to go back and listen to those videos again to pinpoint any instances.)
Regardless, Cindy and George all along have been coasting down a very slippery legal slope. I feel they will both be charged with something in this case, but it will only occur after they testify, since the State needs them as witnesses to rip apart any credibility they have and to show Casey in a worse light.
If the State charged them now, or even hinted at charging them, it could preclude their testimony against Casey, as they wouldn’t want to incriminate themselves by testifying.
Time will tell if George and Cindy are sitting ducks, or if they will be sitting pretty.
