Dad said he went to work at 9am and he got home at 630p, he said he did not come home in between. I don’t know who or what to believe anymore. You’ve told me everyday that you were going to call me and you haven’t but you choose to call when you know I won’t be home. What the hell is going on?” I’ve tried not to bug you to death but I still haven’t gotten to see pictures of Caylee or gotten to speak to her. It’s been over a month now. Am I ever going to see her again? Are you still with Jeff? Are you going back to work? I saw on the news that Anheiser Busch* is being bought by a foreign company that does not want the theme parks only the beer part of the Co. What is that all about they’re talking Disney or Universal may get to buy the theme parks. I thought Universal already merged with them? I’m not sure how much longer I can continue on this day to day course. I’m going freakin nuts not knowing whats going on with you. I had a breakdown at work, can’t take much more stress.

He asked Ms. Lett where the car was towed from and she told George the car was towed from the AMSCOT located on SR 50 & Goldenrod.
Ms. Lett also advised George of the types of documents he would need and mentioned they only accept cash payments. George said he would have to come back… did not have enough cash. George called Cindy to let her know the cost to get the vehicle out of impound. Cindy left work and went to withdraw $500 from an ATM, then met George at the Anthony home.

- 12:58 p.m. Casey calls Cindy’s cell phone = 213 secs.
- 1:11 p.m. Cindy calls Casey’s cell phone = 89 secs.
Cindy said, “… I told her that she was not in Jacksonville. I told her that we found the car, so obviously she wasn’t where she said.” [Page 383 – CA’s deposition by Prosecution on 7/29/09]
Cindy meets George at the Anthony home then she drives him to Johnson’s Wrecker. She debated the notification time and the charge ($35.00) for the certified letter. Cindy demanded a discount. DENIED! Ms. Lett observed that Cindy appeared to have been upset upon her arrival.
1:30 p.m. (approx. time) G & C showed the car title and their driver’s licenses as proof of ownership and identification because Casey’s car (1998 WHT Pontiac SUNFIRE SE Coupe 2-DR) is registered to George & Cynthia Anthony. [VIN# shown in discovery doc pp. 5207 -5208] Cindy paid the Johnson’s Wrecker invoice in the amount of $466.78. [discovery doc p. 374]
George and Cindy acted surprised to learn the car was in the Orlando area. They told Mr. Birch, Facilities Manager and Ms. Lett they thought this car was in Jacksonville, Gainesville or the FL Panhandle. [discovery doc pp. 819, 837, 839 & 847]
G & C Anthony said they hadn’t seen their granddaughter in a month; their daughter was lying to them and would not let them speak with the child. Cindy remaiined in the office while George and Mr. Birch went into the impound yard to retrieve the car.
When George opened the drivers door of the Pontiac with a spare key, he and Mr. Birch smelled a foul odor (the smell was pungent). George looked inside the car and saw Caylee’s car seat; Casey’s purse (with her ID inside); clothes and some other stuff. George said he remembered thinking at this time, “please don’t let it be Casey or Caylee.”
Then he proceeded to open the trunk, as Mr. Birch witnessed, and found armor hammer laundry detergent; blue bends; an old pink backpack of Caylee’s and a white kitchen size trash bag with a yellow tie-string.
A pizza box and some papers were inside the trash bag with maggots and flies crawling on the outside. Mr. Birch tossed the trash bag in the dumpster.
George saw the stain (size of basket ball but not completely circular) near the spare tire area in the center of the trunk. He put his noise down close to it and got an overpowering dose of the decomposition odor.
George took gas can from his SUV and put gasoline in Casey’s car. It seemed to Mr. Birch that George knew in advance the car was out of gas. Note: [It was later proven by LE the car was not out of gas and the gas gauge worked properly]
1:24 p.m. Casey went to Bank of America at 2701 S. Conway RD. (1/10 of mi. from Sawgrass Apts.) She wrote the fifth chk. #146 for $250.00.from Amy H’s checking account Payee: Casey Anthony. Casey presented ID # A 535-113-86-599-0 (FL Drivers License) to the bank teller to cash the check and $250 in cash was dispensed.
Chk # 145 in the amount of $92.62 payable to Win-Dixie #2383 was returned to Winn Dixie unpaid due to Amy H.s forgery claim. ($10.00 returned check fee was also charged back for a total loss of $102.62).
During Charles C’s interview with LE, he mentioned that Debbie B. (co-worker at Gentiva) told him that Cindy had mentioned the argument she had with Casey on Fathers Day. [discovery doc p. 5063]
1:55 p.m. – 2:05 p.m. Casey’s vehicle was released to George. He drove the Pontiac with the windows partially down in the rain. At the Anthony home, he parked the car in the garage. Because of his Sheriff Detective background, George immediately recognized the smell in Casey’s car as that of a DECOMPOSING BODY …That is a smell you never forget.
That said Cindy and George agreed to stick with the story of a rotting pizza in the car for several days sitting in the hot Florida sun caused the foul odor.
2:00 p.m. Casey stopped by Cast Iron Tattoo. She scheduled an appointment for herself and a friend for 7/19/08. Mr. Colamarino asked about Caylee. Casey told him she would bring Caylee when she comes back for her next appointment. [LIE]

2:10 p.m. (approx. time) Cindy found a hand-written note with a phone number for Amy H. and a copy of Amy’s resume in Casey’s car.

Charles C. said when Cindy returned to work she was angry and made the statement about the smell in Casey’s car it [1998 WHT Pontiac SUNFIRE] smells like a dead body.
Sometime after 3:30 p.m., Cindy’s Supv. and Area Mgr. sent Cindy home to handle her business.

Amy H. is at the Florida (FL) Mall with friends. Cindy offered to pick Amy H. up at the FL Mall so she could take her to Casey. According to Amy H., Cindy sounded panicky and told her if I don’t find Casey, she would end up in jail.
While in route to Tony L’s, Cindy tells Amy about getting Casey’s car out of the tow yard earlier that day and she also told her the car smelled like something had died. Cindy stated that the odor was coming from the trunk of the car. Amy recalled Casey saying the odor came from the engine, but she did not mention that to Cindy.
Cindy admitted to Amy that she was worried about Caylee because Casey had prevented her from talking with or seeing Caylee in over a month. Cindy ranted about how Casey was an unfit mother and if her behavior (i.e., excessive partying, lying, stealing money, etc.) continued, she would sue for custody of Caylee.
Cindy gave Amy the impression that she and George had not seen or spoken to Casey or Caylee in over a month, which is why they feared the odor coming from the trunk of the car might have been because Casey and/or Caylee where in there [the trunk].
Amy H.s also learned from Cindy that Casey had hacked into her [Cindy’s] bank account over and over And Cindy goes on to say Casey has been stealing money from her for years, as well as, stealing money from her [Cindy’s] mom, Shirley P. Although Amy did not want to believe Casey would steal from her, this insightful information caused Amy to share the story about her $400 going missing on 7/2/08 with Cindy. Cindy simply replied, yeah your not getting that back!
6:04 p.m. Casey made a cash purchase of $88.45 at Winn Dixie at 7580 University BV, Winter Park, FL.

7:00 p.m. Amy H. directs Cindy to Tony L’s at Sutton Place, Winter Park, FL. Tony L. said he had never met Casey’s mother until that point, and so he said, hello. Cindy responded I hope you’re rich because Casey’s going to take all your money and leave you high and dry.
They were at Tony’s for approx. ½ hour. According to Amy H. Cindy and Casey had a verbal confrontation outside of Tony L’s apt. Cindy asked Casey, where is Caylee? Casey replied, she is safe.
While driving Amy H. back to her place at 232 N. Glenwood AV, Cindy pressed Casey about taking her to Caylee. Cindy demanded that Casey take her to Caylee immediately and Casey simply refused.
George called Lee to tell him there was something upsetting his mom and told him to go check on her. George said to Lee, we got some news about your sister today. Long story would explain later. Lee went to his parents’ home. No one was there.
8:00 p.m. (approx. time) Tony started watching the All Star game and was worried about what was going on with Casey & Cindy, so he texted Casey. When the phone went off, Tony realized Casey’s phone was still in his apartment.
8:05 p.m. Cindy called Georges cell phone. He missed the call.
8:08 p.m. Cindy arrived at the Orlando Police Dept. (OPD) located on Pershing RD, Orlando, FL. While sitting in the parking lot, Cindy called OPD to have Casey arrested. The person who answered the phone told her the office was closed and based on her home address, she would need to go home and contact the OCSO.
8:28 p.m. When Lee arrived at the Anthony home, no one was there. He entered the home through the garage, as usual. The 1998 WHT Pontiac SUNFIRE was the only vehicle in the garage with the trunk open and windows down. Lee smelled a foul odor that filled up the garage. He waited until Cindy and Casey arrived.
8:30 p.m. Cindy and Casey arrived at the Anthony home.
8:30 p.m. After Cindy dropped Amy H. off at her residence, it dawned on her that she should check her bank account. Cindy’s comment about Casey hacking into her bank account was finally resonating with Amy H. Upon accessing her checking account on-line, Amy H. was shocked to find a $0 balance the account had been WIPED OUT! She contacted the Bank of America Fraud Division and filed a forgery claim.
8:35 p.m. George said he spoke with Cindy on her cell phone and that she inquired about what time he would be coming home.
8:44 p.m. Cindy called 911 from the home phone. She requested to have Casey arrested for stealing money, her car and her granddaughter may be missing.
Initially Casey told Lee, during a 45 min. conversation, that Caylee was safe and that she knew where Caylee was. She would take them to see her tomorrow morning.
Lee claims Casey told him for the first time, that Cindy accused her of being an “unfit Mother” maybe she’s right maybe I am.. Casey also said Cindy told her that even though Caylee has been the best thing and the best mistake that she was indeed a mistake! [discovery doc p. 1430]
When Lee asked Casey why she wouldn’t allow them to see Caylee, according to Lee, Casey said, well maybe I’m a spiteful bitch maybe this should have been done a long time a go I’ve stolen money from mom and you I’ve been untrustworthy. I’ve been a bad mother, daughter and sister.
Lee told Casey that Cindy had called 911 to report Caylee missing and that LE would say, if Caylee is at the Nanny’s then lets just get in the car and go get her. Casey started crying and said, I haven’t seen my daughter in 31 days the Nanny kidnapped her!
Cindy comes into Casey’s room and said, “what have you done?! what’s going on?!” Casey responded by saying, “I don’t know where Caylee is.” Cindy asked, “who took her?” Casey responded, “the Nanny did, and she was kidnapped, mom.” [LIE]
9:25 p.m. Cindy called (321) 331-2291 AGAIN! This is the same phone number she called on 7/3/2008. Perhaps she forgot, while in a panic-stricken state of mind, that there was no Zany at this number.
9:27 p.m. Tony L. called Amy and she told him about Casey stealing her money. Amy asked Tony L. to go through Casey’s things to look for her checkbook. He found it and held onto it for her until they could get together for a face-to-face meeting.
9:41 p.m. Cindy called 911 from home phone again. This time she says in part, there’s something wrong, it smells like there’s been a dead body in the damn car Casey just admitted that she left Caylee with baby-sitter and she kidnapped her over a month ago. (Cindy sounds hysterical!!)
The 911 Operator asked Cindy to put Casey on the phone. When the operator asked Casey, what’s going on? Casey calmly states, “Caylee has been missing for 31 days.” VIDEO
Casey claims she received a call from Caylee around 12 noon today. [LIE] There were ABSOLUTELY NO PHONE RECORDS OF ANY CALLS ever made to or from Casey listed in the name of Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez. [LIE]

Casey was angry with her mother about Cindy’s TV interview (Casey referred to it as a “cameo appearance”). Casey demanded that Cindy put Lee on the phone so she could get Tony L.’s phone number… he was the only one she wanted to speak with. Casey expressed absolutely no concern for the whereabouts of her daughter, Caylee.
Cindy handed the phone to one of Casey’s close friends named Kristina C. with hopes that she would confide in her or to get some clues regarding finding Caylee. Kristina C. became emotional over the possibility of something bad happening to Caylee. She said, if anything has happened to Caylee, Ill die do you understand, Ill die if anything happened to that baby! Casey’s response was, oh well, OMG! Calling you guys is a waste a huge waste!
