Casey Anthony finally shares her side of the story. She made some shocking allegations and blamed her father, George Anthony, for the disappearance and death of her daughter Kylie in 2008.
Caylee Anthony was just two years old when she disappeared in 2008. Her remains were found six months later in a wooded area near her home. Casey has now revealed this Casey Anthony: Where does the truth lie?a three-part documentary series that will premiere on Peacock November 29.
Casey Anthony blames her father, George Anthony, for Kylie’s death
Casey claims her father may have been abusing her daughter, and to cover up his actions, he made her disappear. Recalling what happened on June 16, 2008, the day Kylie was last seen, she said, “I wasn’t feeling that great, and I wanted to lie down. I made her lie in bed with me.”
“I woke up [my father] He shakes me and asks where Kylie is. It didn’t make sense. You will never leave my room without telling me. I immediately started looking around the house. I go out, and I look to see where she could be.”
Casey further reveals that she saw George carrying Kylie afterward. “He was standing there with her. She was wet. He handed her to me. He said it was my fault. I caused it. But he didn’t rush to call 911 and didn’t try to resuscitate her. She collapsed with her in my arms. She was heavy, and she was cold.”
“He took it from me and immediately softened his tone and said ‘It’s going to be all right.'” I wanted to believe him. He took it from me and walked away. In 31 days I really believed Kylie was still alive. I follow his instructions. He told me what to do,” Casey continued.
Casey was initially charged with Kylie’s murder
At the time of Kylie’s disappearance, Casey had lied to investigators about her daughter’s whereabouts before finally admitting that she had not seen the baby in weeks. When Kylie’s remains were found in December 2008, her mother was charged with first-degree murder, and she pleaded not guilty.
During her trial in 2011, Casey’s attorneys claimed that the child had drowned in the pond of his family’s home. Subsequently, she was acquitted of the murder charges but found guilty of providing false information to law enforcement authorities, and was sentenced to one year in prison.
In the documentary, Casey also reveals that she can’t believe her daughter drowned in the pool. “There was no ladder… there is no way for it to be shaken. There is no way to explain it, unless [George] Put it in the pool to cover up what he did,” she said.
Casey College was sexually abused by her father
During the interview, Casey also alleged that she was sexually abused by her father, George Anthony, and her brother, Lee. She now believes that after that George also moved on to abuse her daughter. “That’s what I think about. I wish I said something to someone every day about something. Maybe after that things will be different,” she said.
“He would put a pillow over my face and choke me to get me out. It happened several times. I’m sure there were times when I was helpless as a kid where my body was so weak and lifeless,” Casey revealed.
