I know it’s difficult, and maybe even old news and boring for some people to hear reports on this woman. But keep in mind that I have a very personal reason to continue to read about Casey Anthony and her case.
Like George Anthony, my father was a police officer, and I was sexually abused by him, including rape, for years as a child. I totally blocked it all out of my mind and life, until I reached age 35. I suffered severe and prolonged, trauma, dissociation, and PTSD. Casey Anthony’s attorney has claimed that she was orally raped by George Anthony as a child, and that she suffered trauma and dissociation from it. Jose Baez claims Casey did not report her daughter had drowned because she suffered from so much PTSD as a child.
I feel strongly about false accusations of abuse, and care very much when someone uses the very real psychological state of dissociation and repression as a way to excuse themselves for the murder of their child. It causes those who have truly suffered from incest and trauma to be disbelieved.
I don’t care about Casey’s personal life, and will never cater to anything that she might profit from in the future. But I will be updating myself, and anyone else who is interested, on anything that has to do with her psychology, the murder of her child, or anything related to trauma and abuse.
“Casey Anthony said her daughter Caylee may have been conceived during a “date rape” in the fall of 2004, according to the blockbuster depositions of two doctors released today. Anthony said she was not romantically involved with anyone when she attended a party in October or November 2004, but added that she may have had a “spiked” drink because she “blacked out,” according to one of the depositions. “She believes …. that’s when that she was impregnated,” Dr. William Weitz said during his deposition.”
Why does this woman continue to try and make herself out to be a victim? Is it because she was once a victim of someone, or is it because she wants sympathy, to excuse herself, and to bring attention to herself?
Because she is a calculating liar, we may never know the answer.
“Anthony also said she suspected her father George might be the father, Weitz said, but DNA testing later disproved that, so Casey Anthony said she thought Caylee was likely conceived during the party when she passed out.”
Speaking from experience, I think that she is a liar here. Unless a victim of long-term parental incest has had plenty of deep therapy, they are not likely to openly express to anyone, even a mental health professional, that their on-going sexual relationship (incest/abuse) with their father might have resulted in a pregnancy.
“Despite the possible cause of her pregnancy, Weitz also said Anthony “never considered, once she was pregnant, having an abortion or having the baby put up for adoption. She wanted the child.”
“She said, ‘I loved her at first sight,’ and ‘that child was the most meaningful part of my life for three years,'” Weitz said under questioning from prosecutors”
Oh yes. Caylee was so meaningful to Casey that she dumped her child in various places with different friends to babysit for her, and left Caylee with unknown persons on numerous occasions, and never mentioned her daughter in her new video clips.
Casey loved Caylee so much that she completely enjoyed herself immediately after her daughter allegedly drowned in the family swimming pool. She partied, went shopping and dining, and then soaked up the attention she received from the media after it was discovered her daughter was gone.
While Caylee was dead and rotting in a swamp, Casey went out shopping, ate lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings, and got a tattoo saying, “Bella Vita” (a beautiful life) on her shoulder… all in the same day.
That’s how “meaningful” Caylee was to Casey Anthony.
“The depositions of Dr. Jeffrey Danziger and Weitz vividly describe what Anthony told her doctors about alleged sexual abuse by her father and the alleged drowning death of her 2-year-old daughter in the summer of 2008. “It is the perception of Casey that her father had something to do with the death of her daughter,” Weitz said. “It’s clear that she believes that George either harmed and/or took the life of [Caylee].”
Weitz recounts how Casey described her father with the child. Caylee was wearing a T-shirt and shorts. She was wet and appeared lifeless. She said, “Dad took her from me, said all’s going to be okay. Daddy will take care of it,” according to the Weitz deposition. He then left the room.”
Um, what happened to the version Baez gave us? That an angry George screamed at Casey and told her “Look what you’ve done! Your mother is never going to forgive you!” And Baez’s version of the story had George holding a wet Caylee, not Casey.
“Although she believed the child was deceased, part of her wanted her daughter to be alive,” Weitz told the prosecutors.”
Sure she did. That’s why she called 911 right away.
“Danziger told prosecutors during the April deposition that he was so distraught about repeating the criminal allegations Anthony made against her father that he lost sleep over the matter.”
He initially was court-appointed to evaluate Anthony for competency, but in October 2010, Baez and Mason met with him about working on the case.
Danziger said that during the initial evaluation, he found no evidence Anthony had a mental illness.
Anthony was in a good mood, he said, had no grandiose or paranoid delusions, no homicidal ideas and had no feelings of guilt.
Anthony was, in Danziger’s opinion, “surprisingly cheerful,” and that he found her behavior “puzzling.”
Um, maybe that’s because she is a sociopath?
“Prosecutor Jeff Ashton asked Danziger if he recalled a conversation he had with fellow Assistant State Attorney Linda Drane Burdick at the courthouse, in which he said words to the effect of, “I have no explanation for this other than she’s just pure evil.”
Danziger did not recall making the remark, and said his recollection of his impression of Anthony at that time was more of “puzzlement.”
I heard Ashton say something very truthful the other night on TV. He said ‘there is no existing mental health diagnosis for what Casey Anthony is.’
“Throughout the course of his interviews with Anthony, Danziger said, she told him her father George and brother Lee sexually abused her.
Anthony also told him she didn’t think the June 2008 drowning was an accident. The pool ladder, Anthony told Danziger, was too heavy.
Instead, Anthony made another allegation against her father: “I think he held her under water, maybe he was doing something to her and he tried to cover it up.”
Or maybe Casey was doing something with her daughter, like pimping her out, and tried to cover it up when her daughter began reaching an age in which she could soon verbalize this to George and Cindy?
“Both Danziger and Weitz were originally listed as defense witnesses before Anthony’s trial started in May. But the defense later withdrew the mental health experts as witnesses, and neither doctor ended up testifying during the trial.
Portions of the story the doctors said Anthony told them ended up being a part of defense attorney Jose Baez’s shocking opening statement to jurors.
In his bombshell opening, Baez told the jury that Caylee Marie drowned in the family pool in mid-June 2008. He also said that George Anthony knew of the drowning and blamed his daughter for the child’s death. Finally, Baez also claimed that Casey Anthony had been sexually abused by her father.
Those claims made in the infamous Baez opening were never substantiated at trial.
“During his deposition, Weitz said Anthony told him her father sexually abused her since she was a child — an age range of 8 to 12.”
Well then, if George only raped her until age 12, then how could he have impregnated her with Caylee as she claimed?
What baffles me is that everything Casey Anthony now says is taken as a possible truth. How can anyone give an ounce of credibility to a word that comes out of this woman’s mouth?
