Don't Just Be Your Own Detective - Be Caylee Anthony's Detective

In this case, maybe you can be a detective for someone else. Caylee Anthony needs your help, my help, anyone's help.
Anyone can see that there is something wrong with the date(s) of Caylee's alleged disappearance. In addition to the June 9th date, family members claim that Caylee was last seen on June 15th, and Casey's ex-fiancé claims to have heard Caylee's voice in the background during a telephone conversation he had with Casey on June 24th, the same date that Caylee's grandfather, George Anthony, reported the gas cans that he believes were stolen from his shed. Casey could provide a precise date when Caylee was last seen.
The biggest problem in finding out about what happened to Caylee is Casey, who claimed that she had left Caylee with a babysitter, Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez.
According to Dr. Schurman-Kauflin (expert criminal profiler), Casey Anthony is a "dark damsel" who is seemingly ignoring the disappearance of her 2-year-old child, Caylee Anthony.
"The hallmark of a good predator is that she constantly tells lies. If you clutter the truth with enough of what's false, no one can tell what is real," Dr. Schurman-Kauflin said. "This is why the female offender keeps everyone guessing with deception. Keep people chasing their tails, and they don't have the time to fight you. You will often find female offenders are remarkably good at making people do what they want. They are especially skilled at manipulating men. Women know there is more than one way to make a man wild. She can seduce him. She can lead him in circles. When that fails, she can kill. Seduce-circle-kill."
"In her eyes, those close to her are mere things that can be tossed in the trash when they get in the way. Follow her men, and you will follow her thinking. What that means is female predators are especially driven by their need to feel sexual and appealing. They need their men more than they need their families. Male attention is exciting, while family is judgmental. Men build her ego, but their children tear it down. What feeds her ego? If you figure this out, you figure her out.

In regards to the trail of lies surrounding the case, Dr. Schurman-Kauflin said that they suggest Anthony is desperate for attention.
"She went toward excitement and lied when it suited her," she said, adding, "Lies surround her. Truth looks very hard to find here."
She comes across as angry that people care more for her missing child than her. Her pattern comes across very clear. She put herself first, at least when it came to her disappearing baby."
One of the keys to unlocking this mystery may be in understanding with Casey's relationship with Caylee's father. While it has been reported that he died in an auto accident a year ago, little else has been revealed. News accounts do not even mention his name or his family. Was he ever legally established as Caylee's father?
You do not need to be a criminal expert to recognize a sociopath when you see one. Casey Anthony does not care a thing about anyone. She is annoyed to be in jail. She is pissed at her mother. She feels victimized. She has no shame for what she has done. Forget about remorse.
How can we help find Caylee Anthony? I am not sure, but I am asking all that may know anything to help find her.

What we know: Caylee is missing, her mother is in jail, and her father allegedly was killed in an auto accident last year. The sad news – August 9th is Caylee’s birthday, let’s hope she is just hidden and isn’t already gone. For any ideas on who may be able to help find her – a timeline is listed below.
  • June 9: Casey Anthony said that on June 9, she dropped Caylee off at a babysitter who lived at the Sawgrass Apartments. She said the babysitter's name was Zenaida Gonzalez.
  • June 12: George Anthony says Caylee was spotted by friends of the Anthony family in a shopping area near the Orange-Seminole county lines. She was wearing a pink and blue outfit and white-rimmed sunglasses.
  • June 15: In her testimony in Casey Anthony's bond hearing, Caylee's grandmother, Cindy Anthony, revised her estimate of the last time she saw the girl. Cindy Anthony said video of Caylee reading a book helped her remember that Caylee went with her to visit her father at an assisted living facility on Father's Day.
  • June 9 - July 12: Casey Anthony tells her parents that she had been going to work every day and that Caylee had been staying with friends or nannies.
  • June 24 or June 25: Detective Corp. Yuri Melich testified during Casey Anthony's bond hearing that a witness came forward who said he had talked to Casey on the phone on either June 24 or June 25 and that he heard Caylee in the background. The witness said that at one point in the conversation Casey told Caylee to get down from the table.
  • June 30: The car Casey had been using is towed from the Amscot store on Goldenrod Road and Colonial Drive.
  • July 12: After they had not seen Caylee for some time, the girl's grandparents got concerned and confronted Casey, convincing her to go to the sheriff's office.
  • July 15: The Sheriff's Office is notified that Caylee Anthony has been missing since June 9.
  • July 16: The car found abandoned is picked up by the Anthony family from the wrecker company
  • July 16: Police talk to Zenaida Gonzalez who says she does not know Casey Anthony. Police also take Casey to Universal Studios where she said she worked. After leading them to a building, she admitted she was no longer employed there.
  • July 16: Casey Anthony is arrested.
  • July 17: The Sheriff's Office takes possession of the car and finds evidence of possible human decomposition. The car is sent to the forensics bank.
  • July 17: The Sheriff's office starts to search the backyard of the Anthony house.
  • July 17: Casey Anthony is officially charged with child neglect, lying to investigators and interfering with a criminal investigation. The judge denies bond because she showed a "woeful disregard for the welfare of her child."
  • July 22: A bond hearing is held for Casey Anthony. Her mother, father, brother and a detective in the case all testify. The judge sets bail at $500,000.
  • July 29: Casey Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, asks a judge to bar the release of jail house recorded conversations, 922 tapes and visitor logs to the media. That request was denied.
  • July 30: The Fifth District Court of Appeals in Daytona Beach deny Baez's appeal of the $500,000 bond, asking that it be reduced to $10,000. That appeal was denied.
  • July 31: George and Cindy Anthony are interviewed by the FBI
  • Aug. 1: The Orange County Sheriff's Office take several bags of evidence from the Anthony home.
CSI personnel only stayed for about five minutes at Caylee's maternal grandparents' home, but were seen leaving the house with two large paper bags. The Orange County Sheriff's Office would not reveal what was taken from the home but indicated that the family was being cooperative with investigators. In evidentiary search warrants, the investigators can only search for evidence listed in he warrant. This is possibly why the time was so short – they may have found what was listed quickly.


  1. I thought that your analysis was very insightful and interesting for me. It is hard for me to understand her in anyway as if my child is missing for 5 minutes I am in a panic and ready to call the police. I know people react differently but I really think she is hiding the truth. Great Post and I still need to enter your contest!

  2. HNWM- Most of the analysis was from a profiler, but thanks anyways

  3. This poor little girl. I fear she is no longer with us. That mother has all the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder, and that may be why the grandparents are so protective of her. But in the meantime, everyone seems to have forgotten about the child. Yes they are out there with tshirts, signs, and so on, but they continue to make excuses for the mother, and are hindering finding this child.

  4. Melissa - I hear you. I noticed that today there has been some new developments, but I am not privy as to what it is as I am posting this.

    Yeah, Casey's dad is a former cop and detective, but I think that is why we don't hear from him, as he doesn't want to say anything about her daughter.

  5. This whole story is just so sad. I think that Casey Anthony is such a narcissistic sociopath she could have sold her daughter. I really hope that someone has some information and little Caylee is found!

  6. SEEMS kind of weird to me. i was just watching this on CNN or some news show. i think the mom is shady.

  7. EDUB- You may just be right, the good doctor I quoted seems to agree with you

    natural- I agree with you
