    « The Tragedy of Trayvon Martin | Main | Zenaida's Trial Against Casey Postponed »

    George & Cindy's "Charity" Website Suspended

    Someone alerted me to a good-sized development in Caylee’s Fund that should have us all relieved and, possibly, perplexed. It’s been suspended! Why? I don’t know, but I’m sure it has nothing to do with a lack of funding. Purportedly, Dr. Phil paid the non-profit $500,000 to have George and Cindy Anthony appear on his show, but he only acknowledged it was a six-figure amount. Rumors have swirled for months that Casey was paid a whopping $120,000 from the fund, but I cannot show proof of any kind. 

    I have said on several occasions that the possibility is real that George and Cindy Anthony made a pact with the devil in order to get their daughter out of jail. By that, I don’t mean literally. It’s a euphimism, unless you think Casey is, in fact, the devil. Just prior to the start of the trial, Cindy and Mark Lippman met privately with Casey’s attorney, Jose Baez. Lippman is George and Cindy’s lawyer. George was not invited to the meeting and this said volumes to me. It meant that Cindy and Lippman were in on the defense strategy to do a character assassination of George — one that began during Baez’s opening statement at trial — or it meant that George was conspicuously absent from the meeting to make it look like he had nothing to do with the made-up story. 

    At one of the final hearings before the trial began, I was in the courtroom when Baez asked George on the stand if he would do anything for his daughter. Most of you should remember it, too. George’s reaction? Yes, absolutely, he would do anything, and he was quite vocal about it. When asked if he would lie for Casey, his answer was a resounding YES! 

    This signalled (to me) that what most of us had sensed all along was true. The Anthonys were, and remain, natural born liars. With the information gathered from the mouth of George Anthony, he spoke the truth, under oath, that he was willing to do anything to rescue his grandchild’s alleged murderer. Did this include his willingness to be the fall guy? All he had to do was take the bashing because, in the end, no one in the public would believe he ever sexually molested anyone in his family, let alone do any harm to Caylee. Simply put, just deny everything on the stand, which he did, but in the end, it confounded the jury and the plan worked. George came across looking like a liar and a loser — and that’s all the jury had to see to create a semblance of doubt. George looked guilty of something.

    Want more? Cindy stated under oath that she made chloroform searches at home on two separate dates, while her bosses at Gentiva Health, Deborah Polisano and John Camperlengo, testified that she couldn’t have because she was at work and logged into her work computer. They also had time cards to prove she was there. Despite their testimony, the defense still managed to muddle the evidence and Casey is free because of it. Job well done, George! Take a bow, Cindy!

    There have been other rumors swirling about. A recent one was that Cindy was spotted in a community where Casey had been seen, but once again, I have no proof. The problem I have with this sort of rumor is that no one has produced a photograph of the grieving grandmother, especially when smartphones with cameras are everywhere today. To be succinct, George and Cindy have been conspicuously absent lately. There are no Kodak moments. I say, if the present mimics the past, it could mean that George and Cindy are up to no good. Somewhere.

    The person who told me about the website also wondered about the house on Hopespring Drive; that it looks vacant, but of all the visits I’ve made in that neck of the woods, it’s looked empty for a long time, even when I’ve known they were home. Just to be sure, I’ll probably take a ride down there to check it out one of these days, but in the meantime, can anyone explain why the charity site has been suspended? What was it, a misappropriation of funds? Caught red-handed?

    Disclaimer: Of course, all of this is pure conjecture on my part. }}}wink wink{{{

    My dear friend, just as I tell Snoops that I am done after the last postponement, you come up with a zinger and I am back to Tell Me More.. I just realized I'm fickle. All I wanted to hear about was cheney shooting his finger off or ykw breaking a leg. She is never going to have to face any of her wrong doingss so she needs to disappear from U.S. so we can be done with her. If what you suspect about George is true and it is convincing, well that is just another big disappointment to me . I thought he was bigger than the rest. Oh well.... Don't know why I think anything good will ever come out of that case.. Thanks Dave.

    Hi Margaret! I can't say with any authority that that's the way the it all came down, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least. Initially, I didn't want to think so, but what George said on the stand at that hearing was enough to convince me that the possibility is far from remote. I find it hard to believe that Cindy would have met Baez to discuss the ploy and then have kept it away from George. That would have meant that she was a big part of the plan, unbeknownst to him. I seriously doubt it. Thank you!

    P.S. - I couldn't resist writing about this one!

    March 17, 2012 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    This is all speculation, on my part, as the only information I could find shows a website saying it was suspended. I would like to think that the IRS did an audit and found out that the Caylee Fund was set up for fraudulent use to launder the huge donation that Dr Phil made to Cindy and George. Since I am only familar with the tax laws in my own country, I can only assume that administration fees received from an non-profit organization are taxable income in the hands of the recipient and they are not exempt. If Cindy helped herself to 80% of the fund, she would owe income tax on that amount. If she gifted Casey with a portion of that money, there is a limit ?? that would be taxable to Casey but the total withdrawn from the fund by an administrator would be taxable income when it was paid from the fund regardless of who she wanted to gift.

    Dave, I just wish we can more info to work with. Thanks for putting this post up.

    I would like to find out why it was taken down, too, Snoopy. I'm still digging, but the fact that it's not up and running could be very telling. I'm hoping that everyone else looks at the situation and that someone, anyone, will find out why. This could be something with the wherewithal to investigate, like a TV station with a lot of power behind them. I'm just glad that someone pointed this out to me.

    You're welcome, and thank you for appreciating this post.

    These low life sharks would do anything for $$! They are a DISGRACE to humanity! I hope Sindy gets locked up!

    March 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJudy

    I'm trying to find out why the site was suspended, Judy, and if I do, I will report it here. It's important to note that George and Cindy are not named on the Articles of Incorporation, so I don't believe they can be held accountable for anything if it's just about this fund. It could go deeper, though, and that's where it gets hairy.

    March 17, 2012 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    I remember reading that the address used for the Caylee Fund was Lippman's. He is the one who helped set the fund up. I posted that on a blog and am sure if it was here or at my sandbox.

    March 17, 2012 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    Yes, that's true. Lippman is the only name on the Articles of Incorporation. I can add them to this post, if it would help.

    March 17, 2012 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    Dave ~~ doesn't a fund have to have a president, directors and a treasurer?

    March 17, 2012 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    Apparently not the way this one is set up. Not at the time of the filing with the state, anyway. I added the documents to the bottom of the post, too, so you can take a good look at them.

    March 17, 2012 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    I see that the directors and officers are appointed. I am almost sure that Lippman had to file another document stating the names of the directors and officers as it was in the Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation Inc.

    The Corporation shall be authorized and empowered to pay reasonable compensation for services...as per what you posted. I notice this is referred to as a corporation and not for profit... it is set up slightly different from the other foundation.

    March 17, 2012 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    Like any Corporation, it has to have officers. I cannot see Lippman being the President, all the directors and the treasurer. This fund was a quickie set up to disperse Dr Phil's donation... I wonder where the 20% went... Was this set up to bypass the IRS in not having to pay income tax on $500,000?
    It sure sounds like it...

    For what it is worth and I know WFTV do not always get their facts straight... here is some food for thought....

    ***WFTV-Channel 9’s Mary Nguyen reported that George and Cindy Anthony, Casey’s parents, are setting up a foundation called Caylee’s Fund to focus on grandparents’ rights. Mark Lippman, the couple’s attorney, told WFTV that the Anthonys plan to be the nonprofit’s officers and draw salaries because they are unable to work. Nguyen said the new nonprofit would be separate from the Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation, which will remain active.

    Texas EquuSearch is set up exactly the same way. Read Article III in the documents above. It's a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

    Dave ~~in all seriousness, if I knew someone in the newsy dept in Orlando, I would whisper in their ear that there may be a story in this CayleeFund website being suspended. I wonder if I could find someone who knows Kealing by his first name....hmmmm

    That CayleeFund was only meant to be temporary so Cindy could get her mitts on Dr Phil's donation. It is as plain as the nose on your face.

    If this took place in my country ... my neice works for Rev Canada...

    Consider it done, Snoopy, I e-mailed him an hour ago, but haven't gotten a response. He may be out or perhaps he is already aware of it, but generally, I get an e-mail back at some point.

    Hi Lorie! It's just as great to hear from you, too! With the old foundation, George and Cindy could legally take 80% to run it. The rest must go to charity work. Although the Caylee Marie Anthony Foundation, Inc. shows up as an ACTIVE non-profit corporation, the Website is down. For good, I hope. Here is the list of registered names:

    Dave~~I am not sure what the following is all about. Could this fund make money from advertising? I thought their only revenue would be from donations.


    Interested in the IP address of Cayleesfund.org?

    Want to know how much money they're making just by people looking at it?
    Quote

    Value Estimation
    Www.cayleesfund.org estimated worth is: $ 66,418.00.

    no data This is based on an advertisement driven business model combined with our estimated traffic (117,087 pageviews per month) Which we estimate to turn into a revenue of $ 736 a month

    This is just a rough Estimate.

    http://webhost-a.com/www/cayleesfund.org

    The Caylee's Fund site is still suspended. What's going on? Is the fake fundraising finally over?

    Source

    March 18, 2012 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    I know where you got this info. I found it, too, as I was looking for more answers after I published the post. My thought on that is simple. Where did the $66,418 figure come from? I'm not buying into it. For one thing, The non-profit hasn't released any documents yet. And if they had done so, the latest would be from 2011, which would show a higher number due to the 6-figure amount donated by Dr. Phil. If it was from 2010, then $66K would be a fair amount, but I question that one, too. If true, it's still handled by Lippman, not the Anthonys, so how can 3 people survive on that kind of money, assuming that Lippman takes a cut of that 80%, or $53,134.40?

    Here's the problem I have with the advertising revenue. In order for Caylee's Fund to make $736 per month, there would have to be one heck of a lot of hits on that site, and I'm not buying into it. Trust me, I know because I had ads. Also, I had been to cayleesfund.org before, but not lately, and I never saw any ads, but let's say there were. The site has to be paid for, just like mine isn't free. So, the important factor is this: From what date to what date was that amount based? From January to February? From June to July? Was it an average for the year? Which year? How much does it cost to operate the site each month? You see, none of this info is backed up with anything that can be substantiated.

    March 18, 2012 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    Dave~~ since there are no dates provided, I cannot make heads nor tail of that info. The Caylee'sFund did not come into existence until around August, 2011. No one except the adminstrator of that fund would be privy to any info re the financial status of it for the year 2011. They did not have to issue a financial statement until between Jan and May of 2012. If for some reason the fund/corporation is terminated/closed out, then a financial statement has to be issued within a few month after. I believe it is 6 months.

    Once the fund was established and Dr Phil made his donation ( we are not even 100% sure it was $500,000 as nothing has been published verifying it), the value of the fund would be that amount until monies started to be dispersed from it in the way of salaries for services rendered etc. It was just a rumor that Casey rec'd $120,000.

    It seems that some wanna be mathematician was just playing around with figures. Until I view a real financial statement for the Caylee'sFund, I will take everything I read as speculation.

    March 18, 2012 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    Is it possible the fund has been suspended in some way so when Zanaida's case comes to court in 2013, Zanaida cannot attach to any of the funds, especially if any amount was to benefit Casey in any way. I would think if Cindy and George could draw from it, they could in some legal way forward any amount to Casey. Isn't she finished with her probation period and could be leaving Florida or does she have to remain there until Zanaida's claims are finalized. Dave/Snoopy, have either of you ever heard that any funds were ever used to find missing children? We know for sure there are some still missing. Maybe I am thinking of one fund where there are two different ones. Could have forgotten.

    March 18, 2012 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    Hi, New Puppy! I can't see any reason, from a legal standpoint, why the foundation would suspend itself. The Website, on the other hand, could have been shut down due to lack of payment. Or, there could be some sort of problem with the state or IRS, but I'm merely speculating. I would dare say that any money paid out to Casey or anyone else is a matter of record, and it would be nearly impossible to hide. If an attempt were to be made, it would fail, and the fact remains that Mark Lippman is the only name of record. Would he dare jeopardize his career for George and Cindy? No, because he makes more money from the rest of the clients he would lose. The risk factor is too great.

    As for Casey, I have no idea where the $120,000 rumor started, but there's no way she would ever be able to hide it if it came from any kind of charity like Caylee's Fund. If some rich dude wanted to pay her under the table, that would be something else and believable. As for Zenaida, Casey's money would have to be so well hidden, it would never show up anywhere, and once again, I don't think Lippman would agree to it. Based on what I know from talking to him many times in court, he doesn't strike me as any sort of dummy, nor do I think he'd gamble away his future. His job is to keep the Anthonys on the up and up, but at the same time, some attorneys have been known to skirt the law. I think, in his case, he expects to handle George and Cindy's affairs when it comes to book contracts and movie rights. That's what I've felt all along about him.

    In my opinion, where Morgan & Morgan erred was when they went after Casey instead of George and Cindy. They were Casey's pit bulls. I don't think ZG will ever see a dime.

    March 18, 2012 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    New Puppy~~Casey's probation period is up sometime in August/2012. Can she leave the country before the Zenaida trial in Jan/2013? I cannot see why not except some countries do not allow felons to enter , Canada being one of them. Mexico would probably take her.

    As to any monies out of the Caylee Funds being spent to help find missing children? I have not heard tell of any. That $30,000 Extreme boat owned by Kidfinder's went out on a couple of fishing trips. George and Dennis Milstead had a couple nice days casting off. I have no idea what the Milsteads are doing now or what became of the Extreme rescue boat named The Caylee Marie.

    Hello Dave and gang. I was pleasantly surprised to see that you have written another article. I missed the previous Zeniada one, but read it just now.

    I haven't really been keeping up with things. It's all too depressing and disillusioning. These people, Caylee's family members and the numerous attorneys who represent them and the felon, are shameless and will stop at nothing to make a buck. It just gets boring to reiterate the same old same old and continue to feed the beast.

    However, this is news to me and I'll be keeping my eye on where things go. It's like they're made of teflon. I expect that nothing will come of it. George, Cindy and the felon will make lots of money and live the life of Riley. They'll never wash the blood off of their hands, but from what I can tell they're fine with that.

    I wish they'd just fade away into oblivion. I believe if it wasn't for the fact that we want to see even a tiny iota of justice for the death of an innocent child, we wouldn't give them the time of day. They're banking on that.

    Good to read your thoughts. It's been a long time.

    Dave~ ~ Lippman could write a check out to Cindy for let's say, $240,000 for services rendered. Cindy is reponsible for any taxes owing on that income as the check was made out in her name. Cindy can turn around and give Casey $120,000 in cash. That leaves no record of Casey receiving any money. I am going to start referring to Casey as the Untouchable in more ways than one.

    March 18, 2012 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    Hello, Terrytsk - I love to pleasantly surprise you, so that's a good thing. Putting the Zenaida trial on hold will probably kill it, but I would never consider John Morgan a quitter. One of the major issues with this lawsuit is that once Casey fulfills her probationary responsibilities, she's free to go anywhere she pleases. One thing about Morgan is that he's got deep pockets, and when I say deep, I mean deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! His firm specializes in personal injury and insurance disputes. He fights for the little person. He took on the Zenaida case because he feels a moral obligation to restore her name. Obviously, he's not doing it for the money because there is none. Not now, anyway. Because of costs adding up, he's desperate to find her before she leaves the state because it will be a lot cheaper than it would be when Casey flies the coop. Because of the nature of his firm, Morgan pays investigators to do some heavy digging; digging almost as deep as his pockets, so in my opinion, I feel he stands a good chance of locating the elusive jailbird. If he does, she can be served her subpoena and she will have to deal with it. That doesn't mean Zenaida will win the case, but it would be a victory in the sense that Casey wasn't all that hard to find afterall. I'd bet the farm that he's also banking on the fact that Casey cannot stand to be left out of the limeiight for too long. That's what will do it.

    About the Anthonys? If they once had Teflon, it was due to them getting a lot of breaks for what they had to live through. Those days are gone, and the Teflon has worn off the frying pan. That means they may just jump in the fire one of these days. They are destined to because they are so predictable. And when thatt happens, everyone who tried to put this all in the past will ignite the interest once again. I think, the more they're in the news from here on out, the worse it's going to get for them. Anyway, thank you for reading. Who knows what will come next.

    March 18, 2012 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    Snoopy - I don't think it's that easy. I don't think Lippman could just cut a check for that amount without showing why it had to be that amount. When I was in the restaurant business, I had a bag of petty cash laying around that I'd occasionally replenish. That was for incidental stuff and it was no big deal, but if I cut myself a check for $240,000, dang tootin' the IRS would be all over me. I think that non-profits are policed a lot more than business owners, and simply writing a big check is not something anyone like Caylee's Fund's caliber could get away with. Of course, that's my opinion, but at the same time, if auditors from the IRS come banging on Lippman's door, would every piece of paper documenting the transaction be on the up-and-up? I doubt it. And it would have to be released to the public anyway. I don't think Cindy wants more rocks thrown at her house - not after all that interior decorating.

    Dave~ ~ okay, let's break it down a bit to please the IRS. How do we know Casey rec'd $120,000 lump sum? She may have got a dang decent allowance totaling that amount ( if it is true at all) spread over a six month period. Lippman pays Cindy and George salaries to run this so-called Caylee's Fund. He pays them weekly or even bi-weekly. That brings that total of $240,000 down to figures that would be acceptable to the IRS. Who knows, maybe Lee offers his services to help run the fund, for a fee of course. He needed some moola for his upcoming nuptials.

    Snoopy - Sure, anything is possible, but I don't believe Lippman would jeopardize his career to run an Anthony scam. Too much is at stake for him. If he's smart, which he is, he's there to stop the Anthonys from hurting themselves, not to enable them. Even so, they'd have to have a crooked accountant, too, so the books could be cooked. And the Anthonys are going to have to itemize their tax returns. Don't you think?

    Dave~ ~but it would all be legit. I could give you $100,000 tomorrow as a gift. But I don't have that kind of money on hand at the moment. Cindy can give away money to anyone she thinks fit. Cindy can be paid from the Caylee'sFund for her services. Lippman can keep it all legal. I have a feeling that the Caylee'sFund is suspended due to all the funds being depleted and/or something fraudulent was taking place and it was uncovered. I would not dub any lawyer a Saint.

    (I promise this will be my last comment of the evening...I do not want to bore everyone to death)

    Dave~~one other thing. I expect the only revenue generated for this Caylee'sFund came via Dr Phil's donation. People have gotten wise to the Anthony's and their foundation. There may be a few who would donate. I can think of one with the first two initials JB and that is not Baez.

    This fund was set up to serve a purpose. I wonder how many periodicals were distributed out to grandmothers and the like to educate them. These pamphlets etc would take into consideration the 20% allotted to be spent for the charity's goal. Did anyone within the fund (directors etc) do this?

    During my days as an accountant, I volunteered my time to be the treasurer of a charitable organization. I paid small salaries etc etc and it was my job to submit all the forms etc to Rev Canada. Rev Canada was very strict about the official income tax receipts issued for donations to the charity. I am sure Dr Phil must have rec'd one from the Caylee'sFund. I will say that the IRS would audit and pay strict attention to a fraudulent fund set up, especially if there have been complaints made against that fund by the public.

    Hey, I am retired from accounting so any more info will not be on a pro bono basis. Bon Nuit...

    I'm going to look more into this tomorrow, Snoopy. Ol' Davey Boy is a sleepy head, but I may have something else to add to the list, and, to be honest, we don't know for sure that Dr. Phil paid any money yet. Didn't he say he would withhold it until the foundation was licensed? There are no FEI/EIN numbers yet. Without it, I don't know if they can open a bank account.

    FEI = Federal Employer ID
    EIN = Employer ID Number

    More tomorrow...

    After reading all the posts all I can say is "wow". Not even an excited "wow". Some questions and observations.
    Can't Dr Phil's program ask for an accounting on how his "donation" was allocated?
    As for Snoopy's speculation about handing 120,000 over to Casey in cash I imagine it COULD be done, after all non-profits are embezzled all the time.. but they do catch up with them. Too bad they aren't keeping tabs on any bank accounts she may or may not have opened. I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't have Cindy/George's teller card and pin number so it would look like it was them that were making withdrawls.
    I can't believe the Anthonys still have their house what with foreclosures being so high in Florida these past few years. As long as Casey was on trial they didn't have any visible sources of income, especially George. I can't imagine they'd leave their house now unless they just couldn't stand being in a place they know their granddaughter was killed in.. I for one couldn't face that swimming pool on a daily basis.
    As for the websites closing down I wouldn't be one bit surprised if they found that after the Dr Phil show aired there just wasn't that much interest in anything they organized, and they just stopped making the payments to the website.
    And does anyone really REALLY think George and especially Cindy has had no contact with Casey since her release? I certainly don't. They are such enablers I wouldn't be surprised to hear they've given all the charity's funds over to their daughter. I hope your email to the tv station gets some response and they look into the rumor at least.
    I think Morgan should get a settlement of some kind for Zenaida because of how notorious her name has become and how closely linked to this case it's become. Any monies awarded will be there in the form of a judgement against any future earnings of Casey's. She's in hiding now and will probably stay there until this particular case is lost then she's free to make all the money she wants, and there are plenty of fools out there who'll pay to hear her lies.
    Stepping down off my soap box now. Good night, or I should say good morning since it's 6 a.m..

    Hi Connie -

    I don't think Dr. Phil can force any sort of accounting. A donation is a gift the donor would expect to be used in the manner it was intended, and in most cases, it would be. This one? I don't have a clue, but it would only be Mark Lippman who is held responsible. What we don't know is whether the money was turned over to Caylee's Fund yet, and we won't know until he files a record with the state.

    I would like to think that G&C learned their lesson about Casey when it comes to stealing money. If they gave her a license to spend, she'd have that account cleared out in no time. No way would I ever give her any info on my bank account!

    I know G&C had their house refinanced, but who's footing the bill? They have a few people hanging around. There's Quinco Electric, for instance, and that's a huge company. One time I drove by the house, one of the company's trucks was sitting in the driveway. No, I'm not a stalker, but when I go down to Suburban Drive to shoot footage, I usually take a look around the corner. There's stil their friends with KidFinder, and I'm sure there are more benefactors we aren't aware of. Whatever, that's their business and it's a private matter. My guess is that Casey has a sugar daddy of some sort and that's how she makes money. As for the Anthonys' house, I'm sure they are still there. Of all the times I've been there, most of the time there's no action. I think they are just quiet neighbors now.

    I am sure Cindy has maintained contact with her daughter and it wouldn't surprise me if George is, too. As a matter of fact, there was something that came out of the Casey camp months ago about her and her mother communicating.

    I don't know what happened to the Website, but it's down. So is the other one. I would imagine, if it's a big flop, there's no reason to maintain it, and in my opinion, the donations just weren't coming in. I mean, for crying out loud, they made complete fools of themselves for over 3 years, especially Cindy. Let's just wait and see until their book comes out. Something tells me that will never be a best seller.

    The lawsuits are too tricky to call. I know most people would like to see Casey lose every one of them, but to be honest, they are tough to prove, and law is objective. There are problems with ZG's suit. Apparently, she wasn't employed at the time of the incident, and there's no Fernandez in her name, as the suit had originally stated. She will probably have to show proof she's been looking for work all this time, but she hasn't because she keeps saying she is unemployable due to the libel. I just don't see this one as a simple thing, and in my opinion, she should have gone after Cindy in the first place because she's the one that kept harping on her. Like I answered above, Morgan's got deep pockets, and if his team of professional investigators look for her in earnest, I believe they will find her and she will be served. We'll see, but like herpes, Casey is the gift that keeps on giving. Throw in a few warts and you've got the whole dang family.

    Thanks, Connie.

    I wonder what those complaints were for, Snoopy? I'm looking for the answers, but they're not easy to find.

    March 19, 2012 | Registered CommenterDave Knechel

    Dave~~I do not have a printer. There was a place to print off what the complaints were. If I can retrace my steps and find it, I will send you the link.

    March 19, 2012 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    Dave, go here and just follow instructions. I just typed in the name Caylee but it needed to be printed off.


    Go here, Dave

    March 19, 2012 | Registered CommenterSnoopySleuth

    Dave, FYI...

    A request was sent in to the Caylee's fund requesting a copy of the 2011 IRS 990 income tax return as required by Florida Solicitation of Contributions Act some time ago but that request was not satisfied.
