Parents of Casey Anthony Call Defense "Baseless," Verdict "Fair"

by at . Comments

George and Cindy Anthony are clearly dealing with conflicting emotions.

Questions of what happened to two-year-old Caylee Anthony remain unanswered after the jury found Casey Anthony not guilty of murder Tuesday.

No one is more aware of that than Caylee's grandparents, who Casey pretty much threw under the bus, and who implied her guilt more than once.

Casey Anthony Crying

"The family may never know what happened to Caylee Marie Anthony," George and Cindy Anthony's lawyer said in a statement. "They now have closure for this chapter of their life. They will now begin the long process of rebuilding their lives."

"Despite the baseless defense chosen by Casey Anthony, the family believes that the jury made a fair decision based on the evidence presented ... and the rules that they were given by the Honorable Judge Perry to guide them."

So ... unlike Nancy Grace, we have no idea what they really think.

During the trial, George Anthony was a target of his daughter's defense, which accused him of both molesting Casey and having an affair with a woman, Krystal Holloway, who helped the family search for Caylee.

He denied the affair took place and the judge disallowed further mention of sexual abuse in closing arguments, saying the claims weren't proven.

Cindy Anthony, however, was a key defense witness, taking credit for shady online searches for chloroform and some other incriminating terms.

Casey's mother also provided an explanation for how Caylee could have gotten into the family pool and drowned as the defense theorized.

In their statement, Casey Anthony's parents concluded with their hopes for members of the public who want to honor poor, innocent Caylee.

Instead of leaving stuffed animals or toys near their home, the family "would prefer that items be donated in Caylee's name to families in need, religious centers, or any other entity where the toys would be appreciated."

What do you think? Casey Anthony was ...


What does it matter what we think? Casey was found not guilty. I hope she finds both help and happiness.


Casey is innocent, I hope she will try to find the real killer of her daughter, now that she is free to do so


I agree with Trish73...Hung Jury...however free spirit114..your crazy...they are just as guilty as Casey is..when the car smelled like a dead body they should of had the police pick the car up but they helped Casey cover up the whole thing they washed and vacuumed the damn car and waited 30 days to report Caylee missing enough time for little Caylees body to is a ex cop he knew what to do with evidence..and the family says now they have closer..what the he.. about Caylee how can you have closer??? I will be Caylees voice...Caylee said they all betrayed her since she died all the lies and then they shout victory and are happy for Casey, WHAT ABOUT ME I WAS ONLY 2YRS OLD WHERE IS MY JUSTICE...I BEEN BETRAYED BY MY OWN FAMILY...EVERYONE OF THEM..BUT GOT IS MY JUSTICE...


Yes there is dysfunction in the Anthony family, so what?! There is dysfunction in millions of families! George and Cindy should have told the truth--imo, their lies just added more fuel for the DUHfense team! However, any juror with ANY common sense should have stood firm and caused a hung jury! You don't give in, you hold fast to your beliefs...At least with a hung jury, there would have been another trial and perhaps then some jurors with common sense would have convicted her!! Just another travesty of justice and lack of concern for human life! I dont know how these jurors can sleep at night...


During the trial jose baez looked very familiar to me. I realize today that he reminds me of Tim Burton's Tweedledum & Tweedledee. Its the same face. Lol.


George & Cindy both lied on the stand & threw a monkey wrench into an already difficult case. While I dont think either had anything to do w/Caylee's passing, they sure as hell didnt do their all to get to the bottom of things. Theyre a seriously dysfunctioinal family.


the jurors are a bunch of stupid americans.


This whole family is so fucked up! Everyone in the whole free world knows that whore Casey killed poor Caylee. I think the fact that they tried to defend Casey says either they're incredibly stupid with their heads in the sand or they all played a part in the cover up! And to say they have closure??? How the hell can you have closure when nobody is in jail for Caylee's murder? That tells me that the reason they have closure is because Casey got away with murder and they know it! What goes around comes around and they will get theirs!!


where will the bitch live when she gets out? don't come to california...


she should have went to jail for killing her daughter
