There is so much information out there to share, and it will take me a while to go through it all for myself.
There are two items, however, that I think are very telling:
There is a photograph of a journal written by Casey Anthony on June 21. The entry says:
-I have no regrets, just a bit worried. I just want for everything to work out okay. I completely trust my own judgement & know that I made the right decision. I just hope that the end justifies the means. I just want to know what the future will hold for me. I guess I will soon see.
-This is the happiest that I have been in a very long time. I hope that my happiness will continue to grow.
-I've made new friends that I really like. I've surrounded myself with good people. I am finally happy, let's just hope that it doesn't change.
Written approximately five days after Caylee was last seen, this entry certainly does not look like a person who is desperately searching for her "kidnapped" child. It certainly does not indicate the "grieving mother" that Casey has been portrayed to be by her family and attorneys. Aside from all the witnesses who can describe Casey's activities after Caylee went missing, this document is a clear indication of Casey's state of mind.
I've read through the second set of documents, Evidence Reports For Submissions To FBI, and found one short statement that will forever clear up the debate that has been raging among bloggers and message board posters:
"Based on the STR typing results, th DNA obtained from specimen Q18-1 (CAYLEE ANTHONY) could not have originated from a biologial offspring of the individual represented by specimen K9 (LEE ANTHONY)." Page 3788
Lee Anthony is NOT Caylee's father. Let's hope that settles things for some out there who have been vehement about that!
I've also just started reading the supplemental report and found the information about the letters that were found at the scene:
-pink letters that spelled the words: big, trouble, small, comes P. 3466
Would anybody like to guess what words are missing?
My guess is that the full statement would read: Big trouble comes in small packages.
Aside from what I've noted above, there are reports in the local media which outline many details emerging from the records. Here is the latest up-to-date reading list for those of you who want a quick review of the documents. The sites are going to be updating their articles as new information is discovered.
There are more documents to be released in the near future. Let's all hope that they help to achieve the justice Caylee deserves.
