I'm Innocent,' Missing Girl's Mom Says Leaving Jail

Media Mob Prompts 'Black-List' Threat From Attorney

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The mother of a missing Orlando girl said, "I'm innocent" before walking out of jail and encountering a frenzied mob of reporters and photographers in a case that continues to grab national attention

Casey Anthony, 22, left the Orange County Jail Thursday after celebrity bounty hunter Leonard Padilla helped post her $500,000 bail.

Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, said she wanted to walk out of the jail with her head held high before being rushed by the media.

"Just as we were walking out, I covered her up and she stopped me, and you may notice we stopped for a brief moment and she told me in my ear that she wanted me to take the umbrella down and she said to me, 'Jose, I'm innocent and I'm going to walk out of this place with my head held high.' We were about to do that and you all bombarded us. You could have had all of the photographs you wanted."

Baez then threatened to possibly cut off some media channels.

"I discussed certain things with the family and what we've decided that if there are any channels or media outlets that continue that type behavior or violate their privacy by coming on their property -- basically crossing the line and I think you are all adults and you know what crossing the line is and what aggressive reporting is and things like that is," Baez said. "That is not going to happen any more. If you do, we will cut off that channel from any interviews and any statements and that channel can get their news from another channel. If you want to be on that black list or whatever you want to call it, continue that type of behavior. We are just not going to put up with it. We don't have to put up with that."

Baez said someone tried to get underneath an umbrella shielding Anthony.

"I didn't know if they were going attack us or what they were going to do," Baez said. "I don't know any of you from anywhere. No one should be invading anyone's private space that way. I ask you and plead with you all to please respect my privacy and my client's privacy and her family's."

Baez said he was disgusted by the crowd's actions.

"No one has the right to go pushing against me or her just to get a sound bite," Baez said. "To be quite honest with you, I was really disgusted by the whole thing."

Anthony: 'I Want Hot Shower'

Padilla said he heard one request from Anthony after leaving jail and reuniting with her family.

"I want to get a hot shower (she said)," according to Padilla. "She went into her mother's arm. Her mother said, 'Hey,' and (Casey) said, 'I want to get a shower.'"

Padilla said the family gathering was emotional and they were hugging.

Before her release, there was speculation that Anthony would not leave jail.

"I never had a doubt (she would be freed)," Padilla said. "I didn't come 3,000 miles to have some local bullies bluff us. She is out."

Casey Anthony was fitted with an ankle bracelet and will be placed on home confinement at her parents' house.

Her daughter, Caylee, 3, has been missing since mid-June and was reported missing by her mother in mid-July after Casey Anthony's mother, Cindy Anthony.

Casey Anthony was arrested and charged with child neglect, filing a false statement and obstructing an investigation.

Earlier, threats against the family if Casey Anthony leaves jail prompted Cindy Anthony to consider the use of a safe house.

"Right here, I don't think is the ideal place for her not because we don't want her in the house and everything, but we may have to hole her up somewhere in a safe house," Cindy Anthony said.

Call my cynical, but I just have a hard time believing this was said.

God forbid she mention her missing daughter.

Again ending my post with...

I truly hope she is innocent of murder or manslaughter, because Caylee may then be alive. However, at the very least she is guilty of horrific negligence.

The only way I’d accept “innocent” was if someone else killed or kidnapped the little girl and threatened to do the same to her and her parents..............

Something is odd about this whole case. From waiting a month before reporting her missing, to her saying to her father "She's close" to this weirdo/celebwannabe bounty hunter.

People have been known to sell their children for drugs and/or money... could that have been the case here?

The new Scott Peterson case.

It is blatanly obvious that 1) the child is dead and 2) the mother is guilty of manslaughter, whether intentional or accidental.

The shovel, the smell of death in the car, blood and hair samples, the sociopath mother who won’t talk about her child.

The fact that the judge let her out of jail is a grave miscarriage of justice.

OH WAIT! These are probably Democrats! The mother has right to kill her child since the child came from the mother’s body.

It has been conjectured. But that doesn't explain the gas cans in the car abandoned at a strip mall, the smell of "death" in the car, the borrowed shovel, the cell phone records and the cell tower triangulations putting her in the middle of nowhere near the airport................

The blood and hair samples tests have not yet been made public. The only other explanation could be she killed the person who was responsible for taking the child before she could get the location info from him/her. That would explain the other things............but not likely.............

I think you’re right - I think the poor little girl was sold. Depending on who “bought” her, she may be better off.

Yes she’s definitely guilty of negligence if nothing else. I can’t imagine any parent not reporting their child missing for a month. And there are holes in the stories we are told. I hope and pray we don’t find out the worst. When Elizabeth Smart was found, it gave hope to all that missing children can be found.

Speaking of that bounty hunter...he said last nite that he was hoping Casey would offer him 'some clues' that would lead to the recovery of little Caylee.

Meanwhile, Casey's attorney has told her to talk to NOBODY except family members....which would obviously leave the bounty hunter out of the loop.

Innocent of what? She was charged with lying to the police - be her own admission she’s not innocent of that, and child neglect - well she doesn’t know how or where her child is, so she’s not innocent of that.
So, what does she think she’s innocent of?

The mother has right to kill her child since the child came from the mother’s body.

Or maybe Caylee was killed because Casey's life was in danger. The Dems are big on killing children 'cause the mom's life is in danger, although they can't with any specificity (thanks for introducing that Obama-ism, Mr. Obama) say under what circumstances the mother's life would ever actually be in danger.

yep, one of those first jail phone calls, before they realized they were being recorded, where her mother was having a breakdown, and she was just as cold as any person I've ever heard, not moved at all by the anguish of her own mother or by the possible fate of her own child. Chilling.

The evidence against the mom is pretty compelling, not reporting the daughter missing, ever. Being out partying during that time. A car that smellled like death. Two reported stolen gas cans from her father that was recovered from her car. Cell phone calls from the mom’s phone from a heavily wooded area a day after the little girl went missing. That’s just the tip of the ice-berg.

She never reported her daughter missing, her mother did. After her mother noticed that her daughter’s car smelled like a dead person had been in there.

If she was able to party after her child was missing, if she said nothing for a month, if she only cries when “she” does not get something she wants, she will never be affected by being around her child’s items.

She is a sociopath and they care only for what they want - people are merely a means to get what they want.

This story is too fishy. She does not even have a clue “how” to carry off the role of a mother.

Does not look like a good outcome.

You think that’s bad, check this out, the other night I heard her bondsman say that the first thing she wanted to do when she got out ot jail was to get her nails done. Honestly, that women needs more then a manicure and a shower. It’s unreal!!!!

Some of these defense attorneys are literally sociopaths.

Ok, you’re job is to defend you client, we get it.

But the play acting of the indignant caretaker, “You’re behavior is unacceptable...”

Please, she killed her kid. Our behavior is unacceptable. Yeah yeah, proven until...etc...

In the end she killed her 3 yr old child - and the only people who do not accept that are the same people who believe tht Bigfoot was a frozen gorilla costume.

No body.

No crime.

she just might pull this murder off and still look like a

She may very well. I know someone who murdered one of his children and he got away with it. Charmed and lied through his teeth the narcissistic sociopath did. He came up against a small town police department (and this was decades before child killing was common place) and also got the very much in shock child's mother to back up his claim that it was indeed an accident. He got away with it. I dug up what little investigative records were left decades after this happened and found out that the sociopath had taken life insurance policies out on his entire immediate family weeks before the "accident".

From the records I found out that he had taken out at least 2 life insurance policies on his wife, daughter, and son (the one he murdered). His wife and daughter never saw a penny of it as he had the checks mailed to his mother.

Casey reminds me A LOT of this man. He could look you straight in the eyes and tell you that you were safe with him while he stuck a knife into you - and you'd be believing him while he was killing you!

Neither this man nor Casey have any conscience whatsoever and lie as easily as breathing.

As for the cops - well the only thing that can explain it was they were small town (no offense to small town cops btw) and had never encountered a sociopath before.

His wife was in shock and his entire Christian family backed him up. It was this man's father who told me that he had indeed murdered his son and it took me several decades to finally believe him. It wasn't until I got my hands on the police report and discovered several things that he had never revealed that finally opened my eyes.

It infuriates me beyond words that Casey may very well get away with this.

How depressing to see people get away with murder.

In Casey’s situation I don’t think most people believe her. I hope she is hounded. She KNOWS what happened.

This little tramp does not understand that we do not give a rats as about her. All we want from her is to open up and tell us where her kid is.

This Casey makes me ill, if that little girl is dead, she needs the long arm of the law to stick her ass in prison until she rots.

Quite frankly, I am tired of her and her lies. She does not deserve the attention she is getting.

I’ve read somewhere else that when her daughter was pregnant in high school, good ole mom denied it right up until the 7th month when Casey really started to show. This Grandma will lie to the end. Casey’s dad must know she’s lying. He’s a former cop.

“He’s a former cop.”

If I were a defense attorney in whatever city Casey's Dad used to be a cop in I'd be looking long and hard at any cases he was involved in.

Either he is totally incompetent (and was as a cop) or he knows the system well enough to manipulate it for Casey's sake.

Let's face it. Its possible that he knew what Casey did with Caylee’s body and has made sure that all evidence of her has been destroyed.

All three of them (Casey, Dad, Mom) need to be water boarded!

It infuriates me beyond words that Casey is going to get away with this!

i don’t think the no body = no crime is true in this day and age. correct me if i am wrong but i believe that there are people serving time for murder even though there was never a body found. if you have enough evidence other than a body i good prosecutor will have you found guilty.
