Sheriff's Office: 'Casey Has The Key'

Right: Casey Anthony "wow, my lips are chapped."

Friday, August 01, 2008

ORLANDO -- Deputy Sheriff Carlos Padilla told the media Friday that they still believe Casey Anthony knows more than she is saying.

When a reporter asked Padilla who is not cooperating with their investigation, Padilla said, bluntly, "Casey. Casey has the key to this. Casey was the last person to be seen with the child and we still believe that Casey knows more than what she's telling us and she's the only one who can tell us something that can turn this around."

Evidence Bags Taken

Earlier in the day, crime scene technicians from the Orange County Sheriff's Office removed several bags of evidence from the Anthony home.

They were in the home for about five minutes before they left with evidence in large brown paper bags. Investigators on the scene did not reveal what the bags contained. News 13 is still waiting on DNA results from evidence taken from the Anthony's home earlier and from the trunk of Casey Anthony's car.

All donations will go to the Kid Finders Network. The families of Caylee Anthony and and Trenton Duckett will be there.

The Kid Finder Network will also be on hand to take photos and fingerprint kids.
The event runs 4 p.m. until midnight at Speed Park Motorsports.

Cindy Anthony Tells Larry King She's Not A Liar

The grandmother of missing 2-year-old Caylee Anthony weighed in on her meeting with the FBI during another appearance on CNN's "Larry King Live" Thursday night.

Cindy Anthony said her meeting Wednesday with federal investigators went well, but she would not say what information she told.

Cindy told King she thinks she knows who has the toddler, but was on the defensive again about the day she called 911.

"I said whatever I needed to do to get the authorities to come help me," Cindy Anthony said. "I worked on whatever I could to get them out there, so I'm not a liar. I just stretched the truth a little bit.
The car wasn't where it was supposed to be, so I said it was stolen, because I didn't have any reason to come to my house. That doesn't make me a liar or a murderer, and that doesn't make my daughter either, just because she had some mistruths."

Sooo, it never occurred to her that if she told the police a child was missing, they would come right over? She had to lie about the car being stolen? What a piece of work. A family of liars.

Caylee On Cover Of 'People'

The Orange County Sheriff's Office is making national headlines for its investigation into the disappearance of Caylee Anthony.

Carlos Padilla, with the Orange County Sheriff's Office, said Casey Anthony is the last person to have had contact with Caylee, but she refuses to sit down with law enforcement.

"We truly believe she has info that could help us find her little daughter," Padilla said.

Padilla sat down with People magazine for this week's cover story, which will be released Friday.
"I honestly can say we've had other cases that made the national media, (but) I don't recall anything more than this. (It's) something that's been phenomenal, unbelievable," Padilla told News 13.

The national attention in this case means investigators have a lot of interviews to watch. Padilla said investigators are watching those interviews as a way to connect the dots and get a picture of what happened.

"Keep in mind, we have a whole unit and also have civilian personnel taking down tips and turning them over to police," Padilla said.

In the article, Padilla said there is no evidence to prove the toddler is dead.

He also said several suspects have been ruled out, including Casey Anthony's boyfriend, who has been fully cooperative. Padilla said that Caylee's biological father is dead, but he would not say who the father is.

According to Padilla, DNA results, including evidence collected from the trunk of Casey Anthony's car and her parent's backyard is expected to be in by late next week.
