Memorial Held To Mark Caylee Anthony’s Birthday

ORLANDO (CBS4) – More than one people, including George and Cindy Anthony, gathered near the spot where Caylee Anthony’s remains were found in December 2008 to commemorate what would have been her sixth birthday.

Bring Kids Home, a nonprofit group that helps missing and abused children, wants to build a memorial at the site. The project, set to be designed by artist Jefre, will need approval from the county.

“It’s just a great tribute to Caylee, it’s a great tribute to her. Other children got to come home too and that’s what should be concentrating on.  We know where caylee is,” said George Anthony.

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 died.

    If Caylee really did drown in a pool, why would you wrap her body in a garbage bag and then put duck over her mouth and then dump her body in woods to rot and tell nobody and lie about everything ..That theory is a fairy tale and makes ooooooooooooo common sense….

    There’s no reason that the grandparents shouldn’t have attended the memorial for Caylee. Caylee deserves to be represented by SOMEONE from her family. God knows, her mother didn’t care. What boggles my mind is that during the trial, the defense was throwing all these statements out there about Caylee drowning, sexual abuse etc. with no proof/evidense whatsoever. Yet, the jury seemed to hang on every word Baez said, and were obviously swayed by statements made by Baez. Granted, Baez didn’t have the burden of proof, but, nonetheless, there is something wrong with the justice system that allows a defense to say whatever he wants without having to back it up with some kind of proof. No attorney should be allowed to make statements in a court of law, unless they have proof/evience to back it up. The Judge can tell a jury to ignore a statement; but once the jury hears it, the chances of them blocking it from their mind, is minimal.
