    Is the pen register legal when it states Cynthia Anthony on page 4 and not Casey?

    November 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter1520 sedgwick

    If the pen register was authorized, I think it's safe to say it was legal. The request was granted by a judge.

    Off to vote!

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    Already did, got my sticker!
    BTW, love the banner- like how you got the horizontals all nicely just so...

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterKaren C.

    Curious Dave, who is the author of the notes? And why would you need a number of an appeals attorney? And in response to Cindy's letters stating that the state has been twisting the truth is there anything to substantiate that? I believe all the state has done is released what she has said nothing more...

    November 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterB-Man


    Cindy Anthony was never arrested as the form states on page 4. Might been overlooked.

    November 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commenter1520 sedgwick

    I have been pretty busy today. Voted and received my sticker also.

    Do you all think Cindy is being honest when she says things like when Casey gets out they will find Caylee together? Who did they cremate? Why the memorial, if not for Caylee? I am trying to have sympathy but they are denying their daughter/grand-daughter with this crap Caylee is alive.

    As I am at work dont want to download big files etc but read Cindy's two letter to Casey. I cant imagine her talking about God and righteousness, keeping the faith etc. just commenting really but that blew me away. And when she said stuff about Casey fighting for her freedom and for Caylee, I almost lost my lunch. Also when she said when spring arrives and Casey is free, they would find Caylee together. It is unbelieveable what she thinks, says, and writes. We do need to see this as it shows "family dynamics" of total bs and denial. I am sure thats where Casey picked it up from. That household must have been a zoo for Caylee, not knowing what to do when people were filming her from below her highchair in silence., etc. Scary freaky people all----I am guessing that Witchy Poo mentioned by Cindy is Kathy Belich. From what I heard, Kathy made a fool out of good ole boy Cheney not the other way around. Shows also that how the A's see things is just the opposite of what really happens. I have said multiple times that I dont feel sorry for any of them and that they should be arrested too sometime in the future for their lies. I know the prosecution wants to just let them ramble on like the Dream Team does as it just helps to solidify their case. Also, according to the document of Casey finding out about Caylee's body--it sure didnt take her long to get over that about 30 minutes and she was talking about sports. If something happened to my grand, I would not be able to function at all, talk, and would have to be carried out I imagine. Total disconnect--Casey-----about par for the course if you can drive around town with your dead child in the trunk and do searches on your own in the bars. All this we know---we are just waiting for justice to confirm it--"in the spring". Cant wait.

    November 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermartha

    In the letter to Casey, Cindy said something to the effect that once the trial is over in the Spring, they can search for Caylee together and they will be reunited. Cindy and Casey will never be reunited with Caylee for Caylee is in heaven (bless her soul) and Cindy and Casey are going straight to hell. Cindy is a nutcase and needs to be Baker-acted.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterCarmen

    Dave, do you recall anything in Casey's letters to Robyn Adams about Jose Garcia's (Casey's crush) wife being pregnant? If Casey never mentioned that in her letters, and if it's true that Jose Garcia's wife was pregnant, how would Robyn Adams know that unless she and Casey were able to talk to each other?

    November 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPhyllis

    Cindy writes what she wants the public to see. Shirley Plesea seems the most honest of the whole lot of them. Shirley mentioned George's online gambling addiction. Nigerian Scams are made thru an email sent out. George did not tell the truth to the FBI. The Nigerian scam would not be classed as an addiction, online gambling is. Shirley also mentioned that George's sister was bipolar and Casey was the same. She thought Casey had mental issues. Shirley said that Cindy didn't know if Casey was working full or part time and that she spent alot of time at home. Cindy didn't have any phone numbers for Casey's co-workers. The numbers Casey gave Cindy were all bogus. From what Shirley wrote in her emails, Cindy was concerned about Caylee's safety long before July 15th. Cindy was also not being truthful with LE and the FBI, she tried to sugar coat everything.

    Hi, Karen - I created the VOTE banner in Adobe Illustrator CS5. I took a photo of the American flag and I used a bold font. I outlined the font and created a clipping path. That placed parts of the flag inside the letters. See? It's all very simple.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    B-Man - No name has been tied to those notes yet. The only thing anyone can come up with is that it's from a detective.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    I haven't seen that yet, 1520 Sedgwick. I hadn't heard of Cindy ever being arrested before.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    I'm glad you voted, Tony.

    I think Cindy is the type of person who wants to eat her cake and keep it at the same time, and I also think she believes she can do that. Now, if what I just said doesn't make any sense, welcome to Cindy-speak.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    Good venting, Martha. Can't say that I disagree with you, either.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    I think those are Eric Edwards notes, not really sure.
    Also, did I miss count when I saw 35 checks Casey wrote, and forged from Cindy's checking account? I guess Cindy did lie to LE under oath when she stated Csey never stole from her...

    November 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKara Zor-El

    Carmen - Is there any truth to the rumor that the Baker Act is going to be called something different? The Cindy Act?

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    Phyllis - In the jail letters, at least one of them, Casey said she looked at Baez as a father figure and she had a crush on Garcia. Today, we find she had a crush on Baez first, until she found out his wife was pregnant, and in typical Casey style, she dumped him and went for his partner. That's the way I see it.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    This is a very unusual family, Snoopy.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    I don't know, Kara Zor-El. No one was identified as the author of those notes.

    I think, by now, we know where Casey learned how to lie. I guess it wasn't stealing when Cindy enabled her, so did she lie? I don't know that, either.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    Hi Dave. It seems to me that Casey falls for any man that pays attention to her. What she doesn't get is that the 2 Jose's were paid to deal with Casey. The remaining Jose will pay dearly for taking on this case. Maybe her inclination to have so many boyfriends is because there was no real father in her life. Lord knows, George is a wuss.

    I posted this on another blog site. It reminds me so much of George.

    Dave, if the link doesn't show as a link will you please re-enter it for me. This is hilarious and I know you and your readers will enjoy it. Have a great evening.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterCarmen

    Dave ~~there is no such thing as a perfect family like the Brady bunch. We just happen to be able to peek in the Anthony's windows. From what I gather, Cindy tried her darnest to make things work but she made alot of bad decisions along the way. One was keeping George around. Rather than divorce George and let him have half of their assets, he kept him under her roof. Shirley mentioned that Cindy had comtemplated suicide even before Caylee went missing. Her reason for not doing so was Caylee and her parents. No wonder Cindy went beserk when this all went down, the world she tried to keep building up came crashing down. One cannot help but feel a bit of sympathy for Cindy when you see her through Shirley Plesea's eyes..

    I scanned thru the 244 pages... maybe those more adept in forensics may pick up a few tidbits and explain them. A short break and then off to the next one...

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    Snoopy - Thanks for your welcome insight. I have tried to be fair to that family and it's nice to know there's a little empathy for her; that she is a shell of what she may have been at one time. Yes, we are all great at peeking into windows. Too bad it had to come to this. I don't think Cindy had any knowledge of what would be hitting her in 2008, and when it hit, she had no idea what hit her. I'll get into the thick of it tomorrow, but tonight is election night. The pen register info is intriguing to me.

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    I know very little about your election so I will just root for Uncle Sam. LOL

    November 2, 2010 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    Good morning Dave. Well, the election is over and it is worse than I thought it would be, but I am glad it is over. At least "they" did not get our 3 Democrats in the House here in Iowa.

    I have only read a bit of this but the one thing HLN is reporting is the guy that Casey was supposed to have gotten a hold of some guy about how to kill someone. He also said that Tony was involved. I am not going to take too much stock in any of this. I would not like to think that Tony was in any way responsible for the murder of Caylee. As far as Cindy goes, I think she writes these letters not for Casey but for the public. She is pretty transparent.

    OK, the election is over and I have to get my mind off of this and read some of these documents.

    Thanks for keeping us informed, I for one appreciate you.

    November 3, 2010 | Registered CommenterPeggy222

    I pop in and out every so often but dont post when I do. I do appreciate all your work toward this case however personally your writings are too long and drawn out and by the end of the articles I dont really find out anything new which leads me to this question.

    Why not take the opportunity you have and ask Cindy and George some tough questions?? You know what those questions are as you have been involved with this case like so many of us and have visited other blogs and see the many concerns and questions we all have. That would truly set yourself apart. I do realize you sit on the defenses side so you can get TV time. Dave, you cannot get around that, it's kind of obvious however since you make it a point to be as close as you can to the main players why not take that opportunity to ask point blank questions..AFter all, isnt this about a 2 yr old little girl who was murdered? Then your long drawn out articles would actually have something new to bring to the blog..
    I am not a hater, far from it. Just someone asking why you dont take that opportunity to get some answers that the main media never has...


    November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterG.C.G

    Good morning, Peggy - Yes, the election is over and whatever the outcome, it still shows the world how great our system is and how it still works after hundreds of years.

    I don't think Tony was involved because LE cleared him very early on. As for Cindy, she's a tough one to understand. I can't figure her out.

    November 3, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    Hi, G.C.G. - The hearing lasted 2 hours. I took my notes and turned that 2 hours into 3-5 minutes of reading. There are a lot of people who want the story, but can't take the time to watch the hearing. The streaming videos don't relay the whole picture, either. They lack depth and, in many aspects, are tough to hear and understand. My main role is to report what I see and hear. I add a few things that may have been overlooked by the public, and when I can, I ask questions. Sometimes, I am told things that are purposely left out in my posts because I gave my word not to write about it. However, that doesn't mean I won't include it on a future post. This is not a means to obfuscate, it is a method to keep the person's identity from being discovered. Because of that, people aren't necessarily afraid to tell me things. As for George and Cindy, when they show up in court, they don't want to be bothered, and clearly, it shows. They are quickly ushered out because they don't want to be questioned. By now, you should realize that they pick and choose who they talk to, when, and where, and they've been very quiet lately.

    As for wanting TV exposure? No, I couldn't care less, but I know it irritates the heck out of a certain band of low-life miscreants, so maybe I do it on purpose. That's for everyone else to guess and for them to cringe over. I am free to sit where I want, and I do.

    November 3, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    All I can say is that Casey has learned all of her disfunctional actions from Mom Cindy. She is a crackpot, according to the new docs. She will find Caylee when the Princess gets out of jail. Not going to happen. Cindy is living on another planet. Poor George, hope he closes the book on these loons. I do think he knows the real truth and it will come out at trial. Believe Cindy is in denial and acting stupid. Just my opinion, as always.

    November 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersimba

    Simba - There's no doubt a lot of denial is playing out in that family, but especially in Cindy. Losing a grandchild isn't easy, but coupled with a preexisting instability, it's much, much worse because it compounds as it manifests. She's got to be a very unhappy woman. That's terrible.

    Newbie~~ well thank you very much. Where have you been hiding? I have been missing you old girl so don't be such a stranger eh?

    I have to read some more docs. I overworked the old peepers yesterday and last evening and had to take a break. Well off I go...

    November 3, 2010 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    Just been up to no good Snoop so I've kept my fingers off the keys so I wouldn't tell on myself.

    Looking forward to being back.

    November 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterNewbie

    Okay, don't be mad at me for not referencing where in the docs I read it~

    I found it interesting that the check cashing application for Amscot filled out by Casey says that Jesse Grund was her can find that among where the checks are.

    I was also surprised that Richard Grund was implicating Brandon Snow as helping Casey with the crime. I guess he didn't know that Brandion Snow couldn't stand Casey. He (BS) was villified, too, for not helping in the search for Caylee.

    As far as that bozo (not Baez, mind you) who wrote to LDB about what he knows-no way will I ever believe that Tony had anything to do with Casey's crime-he wanted help with the parole board,lol! Geesh! Do all the cons do this when it is time for a parole hearing? Insert con-self into the case as one "in the know". Oh, he didn't get to get out, either, so much for his effort.

    I see that John MacIntock (?) made the doc dump! He did let JAC know what is what as far as Caylee's whereabouts. I think Cindy believes him. That's why she stays in her insane denial. Then, what got to me was that a little girl's mother gets harassed by Cindy because Cindy believes her daughter is really Caylee! This mother recieved a threat, too, over the phone. I wonder if it was Cindy?

    Not a bad doc dump. I did skip through alot of it, though. I figured that if there was something of note in that rehash of stuff that someone would mention it here at Dave's.

    November 3, 2010 | Registered CommenterSherry

    Sherry~ ~was your John MacIntock, my James MacIntyre. LOL That long rant to the JAC reeked of James.

    I think Jesse Grund really loved Casey and carried a torch for her long after they broke off their engagement. He also became very attached to Caylee as he was the father figure when she was born. He may have been keeping tabs on Casey to ensure Caylee's welfare.

    I took note of the parolee's nice penmanship. As I was reading along, I was waiting for the " you scratch my back and I will tell you all the things I made up." I can well imagine some of the correspondence that LE etc rec'd. and are still receiving it from some of the kooks in the blogosphere.

    Most of the 418 pages were copies of checks and bank records. It looked like, as fast as Cindy earned it,. Casey and George spent it. She even had to remortgage her house to make ends meet.
    I am surprised that the bank and cashiers did not pick up on Casey trying to forge Cindy's signature. Cindy makes her Cy a certain way. It is too bad that Cindy let her get away with so much stealing. It did Casey more harm than good.

    November 3, 2010 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    The dynamics in this family never cease to amaze or at least cause a little head scratching.

    So is Cindy now threatening Casey's life outright, by telling her once she is released they will be reunited with Caylee? Fortunately for her I think Cindy is the least of Casey's troubles once this is all over, but with her flair for the dramatic - someone might want to keep an eye on Cindy or she may just pull off what George said he wanted to do to himself, way back when.

    How private are thoughts that are put down on paper to be mailed to a guest of the county? Isn't anyone who is able to find said guest's mailing address, also able to see the warning that inmate mail is screened?

    As for living in a communist country and having no rights... I'm just not going to go there. BLAH!! They really do wear on my last nerve!

    Thank you Dave, you make getting thru this so much easier! (Snoopy, you too!)

    LCoastMom~~thank you kindly. I wonder sometimes if Cindy feels it is just not worth going on anymore.
    Cindy does strike me as the sort of person who would stick around if she thought a movie or book deal was in the offing. I am not saying that to be disrespectful, although I am firmly against all the money that has been made off this murdered child. Cindy is writing the letters to Casey but knows full well her words will be seen by the public so I take what she says with a grain of salt. That old sympathy kick sneaking in to those letters again.

    Super Dave!!

    Another fantastic article but moreover the “document dump” provided a little more insight then what was expected. I will say that as for Cindy’s bank account and George’s resume I don’t think that was needed and they should have just kept that but that’s my opinion.

    After reading the emails between Cindy’s mom, Mrs. Plesea, I think am on the fence. My view of Cindy, as with everyone else, was, well in a word, unfavorable. Her actions were just dumbfounded and left many people aggravated but perhaps people may see a lady with a lot on her plate so there is a reason for her mannerisms. I for one thought I had her pegged as a heartless biatch but, with her talks with her mom, I now see a different person. I would have thought she would have been more forthcoming with information but I see a woman who is trying to keep her family together. Who knows what would have happened if Caylee hadn’t disappeared as it seemed they would have separated. Caylee, IMO, is what kept the Anthony’s together and now Cindy appears, even now, to be struggling with her day to day. She obviously has financial burdens as well as a spouse with addictions that bring the family unit into utter turmoil. I guess now you can say that love has many facets and she truly loves George regardless of faults. Perhaps reassessing the general consensus is in order…? I don’t change my overall perception of Cindy as she needs to reassess her alliance and needs to accept that her daughter was truly maniacal and evil and killed Caylee so that she could have a personal life. Caylee manipulated both Cindy and George and used Caylee as bait. Its been theorized several times that Caylee was starting to talk, and if she is like other little girls (in comparison to little boys) she was talking well. Either way; I know have a little more compassion towards Cindy and hope that she takes off the “rose colored glasses” and sees the world and her daughter as we see her.

    November 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterB-Man

    Hi, B-Man - Thanks, but I didn't do much writing on this post, but I plan on addressing a few things in the near future, including Cindy. I have been maintaining all along that she is a broken woman and the hatred that namy people have felt toward her for such a long time has been cruel and closed-minded. I will write something about her, but right now, I want to readdress something that I wrote about exactly one year ago. I hope to have it up by tomorrow.

    November 4, 2010 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    I would really look forward to that, Dave. Cindy was something of conundrum for me before- I "get" that she's settled into some sort of mental illness now. I would've loved to have seen Casey's face in her cell reading that one and absorbing just what it means- Cindy, and Casey rescuing Caylee, happy together at last, riding into the sunset... Where does that scenario leave George I wonder?
