Casey Anthony's Lawyer Jose Baez's Book Hints at Incest with Her Father George
Jose Baez, lawyer to acquitted murder suspect Casey Anthony, wrote an in-depth, all tell book that explains shocking revelations and details that were not in the high-profiled case. One of these details are that Anthony suspected her father, George Anthony, may have intentionally drowned Anthony's daughter Caylee to hide evidence that he could have been Caylee's grandfather, and father, according to Fox News.
In his book "Presumed Guilty - Casey Anthony: Inside Story," Baez explains the seriousness of the incest accusations that he unveiled on live, nationwide television during his opening statement last summer. He explained to the juror that Anthony "learned how to lie. She could be 8 (year old), have her father's (sexual organ) in her mouth and go to school like nothing happened," according to Fox.
"It all began when Casey was eight years old and her father came into her room and began to touch her inappropriately and it escalated ... She could be 14 years old....and go to school and play with the other kids as if nothing [had] happened," Baez said.
George has denied sexually abusing Anthony, even when he took the stand at the trial. DNA evidence further ruled him out as the father, along with Anthony's brother.
Baez wrote in his book that Anthony said the abuse started at home when she was only 8-years-old and ended when she was 18. She even told her father that he was in fact Caylee's father.
George never actually denied the fact that he sexually abused her, according to the book. When questioned by Baez and Co-counsel Cheney Mason about the accusations, George said, "Oh my God. What else did she say?"
According to Inquisitr and the book, Baez' theory of what happened to Caylee is that her death was accidental and Anthony may have stupidly concealed the body and lied about it. Anthony was afraid of being accused of something wrong.
Little Caylee Anthony died on June 16, 2008. On that day, George noticed Caylee was missing at their home and he and Anthony began searching for her. George finally found Caylee dead in the swimming pool outside.
In his book, Baez wrote he remains convinced that George knows a lot more than what he says he knows, according to the Huffington Post.
Right now, the mother of Caylee is in hiding somewhere in Florida. Her one year probation for a check-fraud conviction ends on August 23, according to Fox.
Mason, her current attorney, said that she's like a prisoner in her own apartment. She can't come out into the public; polls say that she is still one of the most hated women in the country despite her acquittal.
