I mentioned this morning that I would try and update the story this afternoon. No major news right now although one of the stories that is being picked up right now is that bounty hunter Leonard Padilla shoved the singer for a rock band outside of the Anthony house.
Shoved the singer for a band?
Well, apparently this local band in Orlando decided to write a song for Casey. The band is Biteboy and the title of the song is “Casey’s Song (Wine Sick Mind)”. Some of the lyrics include:
So don’t bring me your pain You’re the only one to blame You’re the only one to blame You’re stuck on the outside Got nowhere left to hide
The problem is that the band set up on a flatbed trailer and were playing the song outside of the Anthony’s house. Artists typically express all sorts of different stuff that is going on in song but I think the fact that they were playing it outside of the Anthony’s house was in extremely poor taste and shows what a bunch of assholes they are. So Padilla was trying to run them off and at one point he hit the mic stand which cut the singer. According to the Orlando Sentinel Rick Namey wants to file a complaint against Padilla. Apparently someone caught the incident on video an it’s up on YouTube.
Is it just me or did the little douchebag give Padilla the finger right before he swatted the mic? Not that it’s any excuse but I could see where he might get pissed off. look close and see if you can see it.
Also, the Sentinel has released all of the Discovery documentation. I have embedded it below. If for some reason the embedded document doesn’t work you can download the whole PDF here, but be aware that it is very large, all 431 pages are included.

So the latest news of course is that the Orlando Sentinel made a public records request to the prosecutors in the Casey Anthony child neglect case and received 431 pages of documents which include MySpace postings, comments, interviews with detectives as well as interviews that the detectives made with her friends and family.
There really isn’t anything new in the documentation that they have released but there is a lot of stuff that clears up some supposition on the parts of journalists and other folks out there. It also doesn’t make Casey look any better. It seems as though the Sentinel is going to cull through the stuff and doll it out piece by piece.
There is one key piece of information that might or might not be relevant and that is the fact that Casey wanted to give up Caylee for adoption but her mother insisted that she keep the baby. If this were anything else that would just be a moot piece of info but it certainly tends to give credence to the neglect charge.
Another one is the message that Cindy Anthony posted on her MySpace page on July 3rd, two weeks before Caylee was reported missing.
This precious little angel from above gave me strength and unconditional love…Jealousy has taken her away. Jealousy from the one person that should be thankful for all of the love and support given to her…
Again, taken by itself it’s nothing but the lament of a grandmother who is not able to see her granddaughter, but in context with the rest of what was apparently going on it could be damning.
Jesse Grund, Casey’s ex-boyfriend also stated that Casey had deleted over 200 photos of her and her daughter that had been online. There is nothing in the article to corroborate that but since the records from MySpace are included one has to make the assumption that it’s true. Again, nothing by itself but a key piece of circumstantial evidence.
I made the comment in the post yesterday (below) that the fact Casey Anthony didn’t seem to be worried might also indicate the fact that she is a sociopath. I have also seen that term bandied around on several different websites as well. According to some of the documentation released Cindy Anthony also referred to her daughter as a mooch and a sociopath.
I have a bunch more reading to do this afternoon and will try and update this a bit more then.
I hadn’t planned on writing anymore about the search for Caylee Anthony or about her mother Casey either, at least not today but I have received links to three different stories today and it really pissed me off.
First off is the one over at the Orlando Sentinel, which I have been checking on a daily basis lately. The story starts off by talking about the fact that although 50+ supporters gathered outside of their house last night for a candlelight vigil Casey didn’t join them for her safety.
It goes on to talk about the supposed deadline that Leonard Padilla has given to whoever has Caylee Anthony. Five days and then he comes looking. Five days? You’ve already been there over a week, get the fucking lead out of your ass and help the police already. Anyway, he goes on to talk about the fact that he thinks one of Casey’s friends or a relative of theirs must have little Caylee because Casey does not seem concerned.
Padilla said he doesn’t think Casey Anthony dropped her daughter off with a baby-sitter named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, as she first told police.
Instead, he said, he thinks Casey Anthony left Caylee in the care of friends — perhaps her boyfriend’s relatives or others — while she was “in the process of re-establishing herself and her daughter.”
“I think what she was trying to do was break away from her parents’ home,” Padilla said.
Padilla admits his theory is speculation, saying he has had no contact with law enforcement and can base his theory only on what he’s seen.
But he notes that law-enforcement authorities have not issued an Amber Alert for the little girl — which he says could indicate she wasn’t taken by a stranger.
Casey Anthony’s demeanor also leads him to think Caylee is safe.
“She’s not concerned,” he said. “You’ve seen her. Her demeanor is that of a parent who knows her child is safe.” (emphasis mine)
So Leonard Padilla thinks that Casey is letting someone she trusts watch Caylee Anthony so she can move out of her parent’s house. Someone that must be willing to risk a kidnapping felony. Must be a good fucking friend. I have a lot of friends but I don’t think I have a single one that would hide my children while police think that the child is dead. Hell, that’s risking getting your head blown off by a jumpy cop.
WFLA 540AM in Orlando has a report up and it quotes Padilla as well.
ORLANDO — “She’s not concerned,” Leonard Padilla said. Padilla flew from California to help Casey Anthony, the only ‘person of interest’ in her daughters disappearance, bail out of jail. He helped post the $500 thousand dollar bond on Wednesday night. She walked out of jail on Thursday.
Now that Casey Anthony has been released from jail on bond, her family is asking the media to finally leave them alone. Three-year-old Caylee Anthony had been missing for weeks before she was reported gone. The fact that she was missing finally came to light when her grandparents, Casey’s parents, called the police because they had not seen the girl.
Padilla says he believes the girl is still alive and that she is with Casey’s friends. He says Casey’s demeanor is not one that seems to think her daughter is not safe. He says he will give them five days to find the child before he acts on any leads.
Girls Gab is also talking about the story and basically repeating the same things I read at the other two sites. I just happened on it and figured I would post the link.
Now I am pissed.
“She’s Not Concerned”?
“Her demeanor is that of a parent who knows her child is safe”?
What the fuck is up with these people?
Her demeanor is that of a parent who knows her child is safe…
Her demeanor is also that of a sociopath who just doesn’t give a flying rats turd about what happens.
Sociopath or unworried parent? I guess only time will tell and I hope to god I’m wrong about this.
It’s time to go pick up my own kids from school because I know where they are and as a parent it’s my responsibility to make sure that I always do.
