Nonprofit Plans To Build Memorial For Caylee Anthony

Balloons and butterflies will fill the air early Tuesday evening at the future site of a memorial to be built in memory of Caylee Marie Anthony.

Caylee, whose remains were found in a wooded area near her family’s home in Orlando in December 2008 would have turned six years old on Tuesday. Although she is gone, a nonprofit charity hopes to keep her memory alive.

Bring Kids home, which refers to itself as a public charity for missing and abused children, is holding the public event to reveal their plans for the memorial.

According to a report in the SunSentinel, the balloon and butterfly launching event will be held near the woods on Suburban Drive in east Orange County where Caylee’s remains were found.

Caylee’s mother, Casey Anthony, was acquitted of a murder charge last month in her daughter’s death. Her defense team claimed the toddler drowned in the family’s pool in June 2008. Caylee was two years old when she was reported missing.

The event is scheduled to begin at 6 pm. Bring Kids Home is asking the public to bring helium filled latex balloons to be released.
