Remember Casey Anthony? The girl who was acquitted in 2011 for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee in Florida? Well earlier this week Anthony crawled back into the spotlight, doing an interview with The Associated Press, in which she told the world that she “sleeps pretty well” at night. Yeah, garbage human.
Anywho, the renewed interest in the case has brought Casey’s parents, and specifically her father George, a new wave of heartache over the case that tore apart their lives.
In a statement released by their attorney, Cindy and George Anthony expressed the grief they continue to feel six years later.
“After years of silence, Casey Anthony has decided to complete an interview and has once again pointed to George Anthony, her father, as a suspect in the disappearance and death of his granddaughter, Caylee,” they said.
“George, who has continued to try and move forward from this tragedy and who was vindicated on multiple occasions, is once again forced to relive the hints, rumors, lies and allegations that are being made by Casey Anthony,” they continued. “He has specifically stated that ‘his heart hurts even more now.’”
Casey Anthony had originally alleged during the trial that her father George, a police officer, may have had something to do with the murder. While she didn’t specifically accuse him again in the interview with AP, she suggest that they may have lied about details regarding the case.
“Cops believe other cops,” she said. “Cops tend to victimize the victims. … Cops lie to people every day. I’m just one of the unfortunate idiots who admitted they lied. My dad was a cop, you can read into that what you want to.”
During the original trial, Casey had accused her father of molesting her as a child, which George Anthony vehemently denied. Casey also claimed her parents had tried to cover up Caylee’s death, which she claimed was caused by accidental drowning. Both Cindy and George Anthony were never charged with anything related to Caylee Anthony’s death.
