I couldn’t pass this one by even though it doesn’t refer to crime. Well, I guess you could say it’s a crime that she looks that good at that age. 🙂
I ask that question because it seems that in many of the home videos filmed of Caylee, when Casey is on the filming end, there is not one word of connection with Caylee while she is filming her. Much like an entomologist studying a bug, she films silently even when little Caylee attempts to get mommy to interact with her. Scary? Very much so. Does it show a complete lack of feeling and bond between mother and child? Absolutely. Watch and listen…
There is nothing more devastating than a little lost child. Haleigh Cummings has been missing now for more than a year. Misty Croslin, the teenage baby-sitter who last saw Haleigh, is in jail on a drug related case. Her brother, her friend, her ex husband (Haleigh’s father) and her cousin, are all in jail with her and were charged in the same drug sting that saw them all hauled into jail. Slowly they are all coming to the time of sentencing. One by one they are pleading no contest and then the judge will sentence them at a later date. So far Ron’s (the father of Haleigh) cousin got 15 years, Tommy Croslin, Misty’s brother got 15 years after pleading no contest, and next are Misty and Ron who both plead no contest and they will be sentenced soon. Ron’s lawyer has also said that Ron will testify against the others at the appropriate time to lower his sentence. I will be posting more articles on this case since it is such a mess (like the Anthony case) and we’ll be following them closely.

Gonzalez’s attorneys have amended their complaint by accusing Cindy Anthony, Casey’s mother, of spreading the defamation on television, DeForest added. Kasen has 20 days to respond to the amended complaint, DeForest said.
WFTV-Channel 9’s Mark Boyle noted that George and Cindy Anthony, Casey’s parents, had attended the hearing this morning. “They came and left without saying a single word,” Boyle said.
DeForest said more fireworks were expected Thursday in the civil suit. Gonzalez’s attorneys will ask the judge to force the Anthonys — George, Cindy and Casey’s brother Lee — to answer questions they sidestepped in videotaped depositions.
ORLANDO, Fla. — A judge ruled to allow Zenaida Gonzalez’s legal team to file for punitive damages against Casey Anthony.
Attorneys for Anthony asked a judge on Tuesday to dismiss the lawsuit brought by Gonzalez, who claims Anthony defamed her when she told police that her daughter, Caylee, had been kidnapped by a nanny named Zenaida Gonzalez. The motion to dismiss was tabled for a later hearing. Judge Jose Rodriguez approved Gonzalez’s lawyer’s motion to amend the complaint and assert their right to punitive damages. “I have to allow you to assert a request for punitive damages,” Rodriguez said.
According to Gonzalez’s attorney, the amended lawsuit includes more examples of attempts by Anthony and her family to convince the public that Gonzalez kidnapped Caylee. Anthony’s attorneys have 20 days to respond to the ruling. Gonzalez is seeking $15,000 in damages. Anthony’s attorney, Jonathan Kasen, wants the lawsuit thrown out on the grounds that Anthony’s statements did not harm Gonzalez. Gonzalez’s attorney, Keith Mitnik, said his client had a hard time obtaining employment because of her ties to the case. Mitnik wants Anthony to look at a picture of his client and say that Gonzalez is not Caylee’s kidnapper. “How could it incriminate her (Anthony) to look at a picture of our client and say, ‘That’s not her,’ ” Mitnik said. “That’s what she told the police, her lawyers, her parents. Everybody in the world on her behalf says it. Why would it incriminate her to say it? It’s true.” “You cannot intentionally harm someone you don’t know. It’s sort of axiomatic. You can only harm an individual that you have contact with and that you know, and in this case, neither applies,” Kasen said.
Another hearing in the civil case will be held on Thursday. Gonzalez’s legal team will try to force member’s of Anthony’s family to answer questions they refused during their depositions. Caylee was 2 years old when she went missing last June, but her remains were not found until last December. She had been missing for about a month before her mother reported it. Anthony has been charged with first-degree murder and has pleaded not guilty. Anthony did not attend the hearing, but her parents, George and Cindy Anthony, did attend with their lawyer Brad Conway.
