Caylee was only two years old at the time of her disappearance and the last person to see her alive was her mother. It wasn’t until a month later that the grandmother, Cindy, informed the police of the missing child. The grandparents became alarmed when George Anthony picked up Casey Anthony’s car at a tow yard and it smelled like there had been a dead bod in the truck.

She left her parent’s home, taking Caylee with her.
Over the next month, Cindy was constantly checking up with her daughter to check on Caylee. Every time she called Casey told Cindy that Caylee was with the babysitter, Zenaida “Zanny” Frenandez-Gonzalez. On July 13, 2008 Casey’s parents received a letter that stated Casey’s car was in a tow yard. When George picked up the car he found Casey’s purse and some of Caylee’s toys and car seat. He also noticed a strong smell, like that of an organic matter decomposing, coming from the trunk. Disturbed by the news, Cindy found Casey at her boyfriend’s, Tony Lazaro, house and brought her home. Casey then told her mom and brother that she had left Caylee with her nanny, Zanny and that Zanny kidnapped her on June 16th.
Two days after Cindy learned of Caylee’s disappearance, she called the Orange County Sheriff’s Office to report her missing. When the detectives questioned Casey she admitted to not seeing Caylee for more than thirty days. They also found many discrepancies in the signed statement she gave. Casey told the detectives that Caylee had been kidnapped by the nanny but they found out later that there was no nanny and that Casey had lied and said she worked at Universal Studios when she was actually fired years before. Casey was arrested on July 16th for suspicion of child neglect, filing a false official statements and obstructing a criminal investigation. On August fifth, Casey is formally charged with child neglect after the sheriff’s office searches Casey’s car and a cadaver dog picks up the scent of human decomposition. The Police also finds hair, dirt and a stain in the trunk. The Sheriff’s department says a sample of the air from the trunk shows that it once held a decomposing body. The towing company’s manager also testified to the smell, saying it was detectible even with the car closed but far stronger when the doors and trunk were opened. The decomposition of a human body is a very unique and recognizable smell to anyone with experience with it, and the manager testified that he has had that experience. A preliminary test done by the FBI show the presence of chloroform also in Casey’s car.
During the search for Caylee, Casey’s life became under increasing scrutiny for her actions leading up to the days before Caylee’s disappearance. Casey was partying and even got a tattoo that read “Bell Vita” meaning beautiful life in Italian. On August 21st, a bounty hunter Leonard Padilla had posted bail for Casey in hope that she would lead the detectives to Caylee. Disappointed by Casey when she failed to give any more clues, he labeled her narcissistic and promiscuous. Casey went back to jail only eight days after she was released due to forging checks and using a friend’s credit card without permission. On October 14th, 2008 a Florida grand jury indicts Casey Anthony on capital murder and other charges.
On December 11, 2008 a meter reader, Roy Kronk, found a plastic bag of human...
