Mark Hawkins interview was completed through NCIS, Naval Criminal Investigative Services. Mark was known as a cooperating witness [CW] MWTN-0056. The MWTN is an abbreviation for the NCISRA Twenty-nine Palms CA location.
CPL Hawkins was transported to Orlando Fl and met with FBI agents about the case and was recruited to assist with the investigation. Mark was picked up by Cindy and drove over to pick up Casey at Baez office. He was picked up by Cindy at a shopping mall near the A’s house and rode with Cindy over to Baez’s office to get Casey. Arrangements were being made to meet again on the 10th of October, where Mark carried an FBI recorder. Casey never revealed anything to Mark, but after so long, and Mark Hawkins name was out there, she for sure would have never told him what she did to Caylee, she knew it could hurt her case of being 100% innocent.
Mark met Casey in 2001 when he transferred to Colonial High School. They had mutual friends and became friends themselves. They got closer when Mark deployed to Iraq form February 2007-September 2007 via email. He spent a great deal of time with Casey and Caylee after his deployment was completed. They agreed to stay strictly close friends after a few dates. It was because he was military and kept moving around, and Casey felt she was ‘ESTABLISHED’ in Orlando! [Hahahahaha]
They remained close friends and kept in contact via phone, myspace and emails. Sometimes Casey would let Caylee talk to Mark on the phone. Casey kept Mark up on when Caylee talked, walked, etc.
Around early Julky 2008 Casey called Mark and was upset and frustrated. She had something to tell him, but couldn’t do it over the phone, she stated something happened a long time ago, but wouldn’t say what it was. Cindy and Lee knew what it was, and they became angry and frustrated about it. When questioned about it, Casey got mad at Mark, so he dropped it. She told Mark that it was something she wanted to tell him in person and not over the phone. He assumed it was something about her and her father or something else and she was dancing about it!
Of course the Puerto Rico trip came up…you remember the one, the one she had no money for, and no job! Of course Casey never brought up the issue again.
When asked if she was going to bring Caylee to California, Casey said that she would either get a babysitter, or bring her with her. She said she would figure it out.
Mark goes on to say that there was a lot of tension between Casey and her family. Of course Casey was telling Mark that C&G were going to separate then divorce, then said they were getting back together. He was unsure if she was telling him the truth or not. Casey told Mark that she and Caylee would go and stay at Tony’s house from 1 or 2 days to a week at a time. Well we know that Caylee wasn’t at Tony’s house for a week, ever.
The last time he talked to Casey was the day of her big arrest. He received the text message Casey sent out about Caylee was missing. He called the house talked to Cindy and then talked to Casey. Casey said Caylee was missing and claimed to have no idea where she was. She told him the last time she saw Caylee was when she dropped heroff at the babysitters, and she tried to call but the phone was off. Mark asked her why she didn’t let anyone know she was missing and Casey claimed to be worried about Caylee’s safety and that she conducted her own investigation. She let Mark know that “since Caylee had been missing for 31 days and because she didn’t tell anyone she was being looked at.” She said she would call back, but never did! He was baffled that Casey never told anyone, family, friends, police or even himself that Caylee was missing! He said Casey was out of character not to tell anyone. The Casey he knew was a caring mother and devoted to Caylee.
When Mark called back, he talked to George. He told George who he was and George told him Casey had been arrested.
Mark called him mom after words, remember she saw Casey in Target the week before buying a case of beer. She wanted to ask where Caylee was, but she didn’t. They had a conversation about Tony coming back, but Mark didn’t know from where.
On 18 September 2008 Casey sent Mark a message on myspace that said something like: “Hey Hon, I miss you. How are you doing? We’re gonna get these bastards; including Padilla…I miss my “Charlie Brown”. Let me know the next time you’re in town, I miss you and want to see you… He responded he missed her too and that he was praying for all of them and if she needed anything to let him know!
I am curious to what Casey was going to tell Mark. Of course it could have been one of her million lies out there that she had concocted up, but when she said it happened long ago, really makes you wonder. Read Mark Hawkins NCIS document
