Everything You Need To Know About Casey Anthony And The Death Of Her Daughter, Caylee Anthony

It was an average day in July back in 2008 when a frantic call was placed to 911 reporting a 2-year-old little girl missing. The caller was Cindy Anthony, Caylee Anthony’s grandma, and she told the dispatcher her granddaughter had been missing for about a whole month.

Cindy didn’t buy the story her own daughter Casey Anthony had told her about Caylee’s disappearance, and now she was getting the authorities involved to help get to the truth.

Why had Casey Anthony, Caylee’s mom, failed to report her own child missing for 30 long days? Wouldn’t any mom call the authorities herself if her child disappeared into thin air?

When Cindy pressed Casey for answers on what happened to Caylee, she said her babysitter had stolen her and that she stopped responding to her phone calls.

As soon as this story made it out of Casey’s mouth, Cindy was on the phone to 911. Things were definitely not adding up. Where was Caylee?

Casey’s own mom called 911 to report her because she just didn’t believe what Casey told her about Caylee’s disappearance

Little did Cindy or Casey know…this was about to be the beginning of an unbelievable story and a case that made international headlines.

Here’s everything you need to know about Casey Anthony and the death of her daughter, Caylee Anthony.

Casey Anthony shared with her psychiatrist Jeff Danzinger that she got pregnant with Caylee at a party while she wasn’t even conscious.

Jeff wrote down what she told him: “Two beers, possibly given another drug. Woke up passed out…Don’t remember anything at a party, age 18. This is how she said she got pregnant.”

After Casey gave birth to Caylee, she continued to live with her parents, George and Cindy, and they pretty much supported this mom and her daughter.

Casey did not have a good relationship with her parents at all, despite living under their roof, and it was because they fought with her about her irresponsibility as a parent pretty much every single day.

After one blowout fight, Casey took Caylee and told her parents they were moving out of their house.

Casey’s parents absolutely loved Caylee, and she knew it would really hurt them if she left. So, she did.

George and Cindy were of course devastated since they were such a huge part of Caylee’s life. They hoped Casey would now get her act together and be the mom Caylee needed, but sadly things would never have a happy ending for this entire family.

Caylee not only disappeared…she died right after Casey moved her out.
