Casey Anthony blames father George Anthony for daughter Caylee's death

Casey Anthony is now blaming the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony, on her father, George Anthony.

The shocking claims are made in Peacock’s forthcoming three-part limited documentary series, “Casey Anthony: Where The Truth Lies.” 

In 2008, Casey’s 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, disappeared. 

Six months later, the child’s remains were found in a wooded area near the family home. 

Casey was ultimately charged with murder and during her 2011 trial, her legal team said that Caylee had drowned in the family pool. 

On July 5, 2011, Casey Anthony was acquitted of murder, but she was convicted of four counts of providing false information to law enforcement and served prison time. 

In “Casey Anthony: Where The Truth Lies,” the 36-year-old makes several shocking claims and alleges that her father staged Caylee’s drowning.

Casey recalled the events of June 16, 2008, saying, “I wasn’t feeling that great, and I wanted to lay down. I had her lay in bed with me.”

“I was awoken by [my father] shaking me and asking me where Caylee was,” she continues. 

“That didn’t make sense. She would never even leave my room without telling me. I immediately started looking around the house. I go outside and I’m looking to see where she could be.”

Casey claims she saw her father holding Caylee.

“He was standing there with her. She was soaking wet. He handed her to me. Said it was my fault. That I caused it. But he didn’t rush to call 911 and he wasn’t trying to resuscitate her. I collapsed with her in my arms. She was heavy, and she was cold.”

“He takes her from me and he immediately softens his tone and says ‘It’s going to be ok.’ I wanted to believe him. He took her from me and he went away.”

Casey says she went to stay with her boyfriend, Tony Lazzaro, but didn’t tell anyone what had happened with Caylee. 

Even after everything she saw and experienced, Casey claims she still thought Caylee was alive. 

“During the 31 days, I genuinely believed that Caylee was still alive,” she says. “My father kept telling me she was ok. I had to keep following his instructions. He told me what to do. I tried to act as normal as I could.”

Casey Anthony went on to detail how her father allegedly abused her as a child. 

“He’d put a pillow over my face and smother me to knock me out,” she says. “That happened several times. I’m sure there were times where I was incapacitated as a child where my body was limp and lifeless.”

She believes George Casey may have been abusing Caylee and staged her drowning to cover it up. 

“There was no ladder…no way for her to shimmy up. There’s no way to explain that, unless [George] put her in the pool to cover up what he did.”

At this time, no charges have been filed against George Casey. 

Casey Anthony: Where The Truth Lies” will begin streaming on Peacock on November 29.
