While watching the Casey Anthony Murder Trial I began to review the electronic evidence for June 16 2008. I wanted to know which account more closely matches the afore mentioned evidence. Would George’s testimony be more adequately supported by that evidence or Casey’s defense story?
I will be using Casey’s cell phone pings, call logs, text logs, and internet log activity for this determination. The following is the results of that comparison:
June 15 2008: 7:18 pm Casey arrives home evidenced by her cell phone signal pinging off of a cell tower closest to her home.
This is also the timeframe Cindy Anthony says she and Caylee were in the family swimming pool in their backyard. She adds that Casey wanted to join them in the pool but she had decided it was getting too dark & it was getting cold. (Another Cindy statement has Casey actually joining them for a swim)
Anthony neighbor tells Mark Fuhrman that he overheard loud voices and swearing eminating from the Anthony backyard or property.
“I talked to one of the immediate neighbors that is within earshot of the Anthony house, and he said that Casey Anthony had one hell of a temper. And he heard her swearing at her mother several times, so loud that he could hear it from his house, and that he would never talk to his parents that way. And he said even Father’s Day weekend, that was going on. So whether that’s true or not, it’s something that he’s observed and heard on repeated times. We’d never heard that before, and so that’s interesting all unto itself.”
Jesse Grund later reveals to his father that Lee Anthony told him that she and Cindy had an altercation that night that culminated in Cindy strangling Casey.
“What Lee [Anthony] had told Jesse uhm, was that the fight the night before had escalated to the point that uh, Cindy had wrapped her hands around Casey’s throat and was trying to strangle her.”
Rick Plesea, Cindy Anthony’s brother posts about this fight on Topix website
When asked about this alleged fight both Lee & Cindy deny it happened or that they told Jesse Grund anything like that.
Casey makes & recieves calls & texts through out the evening and into the early morning hours of June 16 2008. Last call is from Tony Lazzaro &
is answered at 3:08 am with the call disconnecting at 3:22 am. Casey makes one last text to Tony Lazzaro upon call disconnect 3:22 am.
No electronic activity from 3:22 am until 7:45 am
7:45 am The Anthony house phone is used to check Casey’s cell phone voice mail.
George and Cindy Anthony both testify that Caylee usually wakes after Cindy has left for work (6:30 – 7:00 am approx). It is believed that Caylee awake that day around 7:30 – 7:45 when we see Casey’s activity resumes. It is possible that she was still asleep until later that morning.
7:28 – 9:27 am Casey calls, texts, & internet from Anthony home
9:27 am Casey posts a picture of the interior of Fusion nightclub on her MySpace page. This is the last Casey electronic activity until 1:27 pm.
No calls were made or answered, no internet/computer activity, no texting, pings remain at or near the Anthony home. Tony Lazzaro calls
Casey at 11:47 am but the calls goes unanswered. Casey does not respond to Tony’s call until 12:53 pm. This represents a 4 hour gap in Casey’s electronic activity.
12:50 pm George claims Casey & Caylee leave the Anthony home. He allegedly is able to perfectly describe exactly what Caylee was wearing 30+ days later.
12:53 pm Casey returns to electronic activity but cell phone pings remains at or near the Anthony home. The following ping map provided by
Websleuths.com shows the cell towers Caseys cell phone signal was connecting to and bouncing back from.
12:55 pm Tony L returns Caseys text message.
1:00 pm Tony L calls Casey’s cell phone. (Call ends 1:13 pm)
1:26 pm Casey texts Jesse G
1:27 pm Casey texts Jesse G
(This is the approximate time that George Anthony left the family home on his way to his 2nd day on the job at Lexus.)
1:44 pm Casey calls Amy H. They speak for 36 minutes (Call ends 2:20 pm)
(25 – 30 minute gap in Casey electronic activity)
2:52 pm Jesse G calls Casey. They speak for 12 minutes (Call ends at 3:04 pm)
3:03 pm George calls Casey’s cell. She does not answer as she is still talking with Jesse G
(This call previously attributed by media as Casey calling George but is inaccurate)
This same call is made 3 minutes into George’s shift, 2nd day on the job
(Second 30 minute gap in Casey’s electronic activity)
3:35 pm Casey calls Tony L. Call goes unanswered
(Third 30 minute gap in Casey’s electronic activity)
4:10 pm Casey calls George @ Lexus. This call goes unanswered
4:11 pm Casey calls Cindy. This call goes unanswered
4:13 pm Casey calls Cindy. This call also goes unanswered
4:14 pm Casey calls George @ Lexus. This call disconnects after 1 minute
Casey appears to leave the Anthony home and/or area heading North.
4:18 pm Casey texts Tony L
4:19 pm Tony L texts Casey & Casey immediately calls him (1 minute call disconnects at 4:20 pm)
4:21 pm Casey calls Jesse G. This call goes unanswered.
4:25 pm Casey is in area of Gentiva, Cindy’s work per ping map & calls Cindy again. Again the call goes unanswered.
(2 hour 10 minutes gap in activity however we know that Casey’s pings have her traveling to Tony L’s apartment & she does not return to the Anthony residence or area any more this day. This being true Caylee’s death & the hiding of her remains would have had to happened at some point earlier in the day.)
6:31 pm Casey calls Cindy’s cell phone. This call goes unanswered
6:32 pm Casey calls Cindy’s cell phone. This call goes unanswered
6:32 pm casey calls home. Call lasts 1 minute & disconnects at 6:33 pm
7:06 pm Casey calls home. Call last 2 minutes & disconnects at 7:08 pm
I included the last 4 calls to show how many times Casey attempted to reach her mother, Cindy, that afternoon.
Now, as we look back over the evidence it become abundantly clear that there is a 4 hour gap in electronic activity and 3 smaller gaps of 30 minutes each. The larger gap is startling considering that usual electronic activity for Casey Anthony. Most especially the hour gap between Tony’s call and her response. I don’t believe there will be any other instance of this occurring during normal waking hours, either before or after June 16 2008.
George Anthony’s version of events & the State of Florida Prosecutor’s office contends that Caylee Anthony was murdered during one of those 30 minute gaps. While there are still 3 short gaps in activity; it is hard to imagine anyone murdering their child in cold blood, hiding the remains, and then calling and texting seconds after. Should this indeed be the case, I contend that the Death Penalty is in order.
I find it much more believable that Caylee was found drowned in the family pool & hidden by George and/or Casey during that 4 hour gap. In that senario Casey wouldn’t have replied to Tony right away. She would be busy or too distraught. Within 30 minutes of electronic activity resuming George leaves the Anthony home headed for Lexus. Before George leaves for work Casey texts Jesse Grund twice. It may have been because she didn’t want George to over hear what was said. Immediately after George leaves Casey calls Amy H. They talk for over a half an hour. Thirty minutes later Jesse calls Casey where upon they speak for 12 minutes. Jesse later reveals that Casey had told him during that conversation “My mom wants me out of the house & my parents are getting divorced” (Shirley & Rick Plesea emails support this) Jesse admits it was not a regular conversation. As soon as George is on the clock at work he calls Casey. Was this to validate an alibi?
After speaking with Tony, Jesse, & Amy she calls Dad, Mom, Mom, Dad. When all of these calls go unanswered she leaves the Anthony home. Was Casey trying to get her parents to agree to come clean with authorities? Did she want to tell the truth at that point? If Casey outright & in cold blood murdered Caylee why was she calling her parents repeatedly? I am sure it wasn’t to say “Guess what I just did”.
Did George hide Caylee somewhere Casey was unaware of? Without Caylee’s remains Casey would be unable to prove what really happened. Were Caylee’s remains later put into Casey’s trunk without her knowledge. She did claim that George had borrowed her car the day before the smell became noticable. Did George just plant some of the decomposition fluids? Was he the one who put Caylee’s remains where she was finally located? Where does Roy Kronk fit into all of this?
My next article will show how Roy Kronk’s “discovery” coincided with the State’of Florida’s decisions to not seek the Death Penalty, the reversal of that decision & how it applies to a Death Penalty sentencing.
