Search for Caylee Suspended
Updated 10/14/08 – Casey Anthony has been indicted by a grand jury on seven counts including 1st Degree Murder and is in police custody. More info here.
Texas EquuSearch has had to temporarily suspend it’s search for Caylee Anthony due to environmental conditions, mainly water left over from Hurricane Fay.
Texas EquuSearch suspended its search for missing 3-year-old Caylee Marie Anthony Sunday afternoon, saying that water that remains from Tropical Storm Fay is preventing them from clearing areas fully.
“We know where Caylee’s not at,” said Tim Miller, the group’s founder and director. Miller said the decision to suspend the search was difficult, but that the group will return when conditions are right. “If Caylee’s out there, we are going to find her.”
About 2,500 volunteers have come out since the group started organizing daily searches late last month. They have been combing through thick brush in areas near the Anthony family’s Lee Vista home, looking for the child. Caylee Marie has not been seen since mid-June. She was reported missing in July, and investigators say she is probably dead.
TES has cleared as many areas as they can right now but unfortunately there are so many areas still inundated with water that were dry when Caylee disappeared that they cannot finish the search right now. Scared Monkeys has spoken with Tim Miller and he confirmed that it’s just a temporary halt to the search.
Tim Miller did say that they would return and in addition to the local search TES is going to start a national campaign on Monday as well. If you are interested in volunteering you can call Texas EquuSearch at 866-473-1584
Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary is calling for people to end the protests that have been going on outside the Anthony home. Recently they have gotten very ugly and violent. People have been lining up outside the house every single night since Casey Anthony was released from jail this past week.
Beary says that the protests are taking away resources that could better be served looking for Caylee.
The Anthonys have also had security cameras installed around their house as well. A security company showed up yesterday and started installing the cameras, presumably for their protection.
This brings me to something I have been thinking about since I read David Lohr’s report the other day. If the Anthonys are having financial issues and not working, exactly how are they paying for the security system. Let me tell you folks, that stuff ain’t cheap. Perhaps it’s true that a book and movie are in the offing. I can tell you one damn thing and that’s that I won’t be buying.
