WESH News is reporting that today, Orange County Sheriff's for the first time they have labeled Casey Anthony a suspect in the disappearance of her daughter, Caylee. OCSO stated there were two reasons why Casey's status changed from a "person of interest" to suspect today. First, the evidence they've received from the FBI indicating there was a "high probability" that little Caylee's body was in the trunk of her mother's car, and second, the many lies she has repeatedly told investigators.
It's about time that OCSO changed her status to suspect. Virtually every thing that has come out of her mouth about her daughter's disappearance has been proven to be a lie. Let's hope that this latest statement by OCSO means that murder charges are not far behind.
Anthony's attorney, Jose Biaz, would not comment beyond saying it didn't matter what the OCSO called her.
Earlier today Anthony entered a written "not guilty" plea on the fraud charges. She will most likely not appear at an arraignment on those charges because of the written plea.
Ever since Casey Anthony has been in and out of jail on various charges, the drama in the street outside her house has been a growing problem for the Sheriff's office, and the peace and quiet of her neighbors. There have been 138 calls from the Anthony family themselves and 158 from the neighbors.
The homeowner association in the Anthony neighborhood has twice tried to get a judge to issue a temporary injunction on the protesters, and move them to an empty lot. Both requests have been unsuccessful. The Anthony's and their attorney, Mark Nejame went so far as to make a plea to the Mayor and several Commissioner's for help in dealing with, ". . .the miscreants, these lawbreakers. . ." as Nejame called them. He went on to say, "I won't dignify them by calling them protesters. They were agitators, and unfortunately and sadly, they just thought it was best for them and their neighbors and their community not to do them at their home anymore."
The Commissioners felt that there was plenty of money in the Sheriff's budget to park an on duty squad car at each end of the street where the Anthony's live at a cost of approximately $4,000 a month. If I was a taxpayer in Orange County, I'd be mighty pissed at this waste of resources. One of the solutions I thought was long past due, the Sheriff's Office finally asked the Anthony family to "move the prayer vigils" from in front of their home to inside their home or their back yard.
Earlier today the Anthony's announced that the prayer vigils would now be held in a local church starting Sunday. Finally forkin' time if you ask me.
