Casey Anthony's Mother Testifies the Web Searches for 'Chloroform' Were Hers
FoxNews.com ^ | June 23, 2011 | FoxNews/AP

Posted on 06/23/2011 2:39:47 PM PDT by ColdOne

Casey Anthony's mother testified Thursday she used the family's computer to search for suspicious items like "chloroform" -- potentially undercutting the prosecution's attempt to pin those searches on Anthony, who is accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter.

Cindy Anthony told a jury for the first time Thursday that she used her home computer to look up "chloroform" and other search terms in March 2008 -- even though records show she was at work at the time of the searches, according to prosecutors.

Somethings fishy here. If ‘records show that she (Cindi Anthony, Casey’s mother) was at work at the time of the searches’ someone is lying. Either the records are wrong or Cindi Anthony is lying to save her daughter from the gas chamber or even in hopes of getting Casey acquitted, an unlikely outcome. I don’t believe that searching for ‘chloroform’ was benign. The only question is: who actually was doing those searches. I suspect it was Casey, not Cindi Anthony.

Lying to protect her daughter, when we all know it is a lie

No wonder Casey is so screwed up

The whole family is a bunch of liars. It’s one thing to be supportive of your accused child, but they have lied over and over. She should be put in jail for perjury. Period.

The whole family is one sick, disgusting family!!!

If they have records to prove she was at work at the time of the searches, they should pursue perjury charges against her. I've heard that she mouths the words "I love you" to her monster daughter in court. The whole damn family is a bunch of enablers. No wonder they raised a spoiled brat.

Imaging raising your hand and taking an oath "so help me God," and then lying. You would think she'd behave with a little dignity just to honor her granddaughter.

An old criminal defense attorney told me that he always put the mother of the defendant on the stand. The attorney never told the mother to lie. Invariably the mother would testified that junior was home in bed when the crime occured. The jury does not have to believe the mother.

Why did George and Cindi not report Caylee missing for the first 31 days ? IMHO, something is fishy with them - Casey is a fruit loop, but they don’t come across as legit.

She enabled Casey for years, and the result is one adorable dead little girl. Casey, if she gets off, will continue her sociopathic behavior and how Cindy will sleep at night I can’t imagine. The jury has to see through Cindy’s desperate attempt to save Casey from the death penalty. The look on Casey’s face...Mom is lying for me, saving my butt again. So when does Casey learn that behavior has consequences? Sickening.

So okay, a thread about this case.

As expected, I have an opinion and some thoughts.

Let us begin with my husband driving me nuts complaining about all the coverage on this case. Well yeah, but you can, just throwing it out there, just flip the channcel.

Dear Lord if this woman-Cindy Anthony- is lying, which Cheetahcat to whom I respond alleges, dear Lord, dear Lord, IS SHE NUTS?

Then I stop and think, only for a while. For I have a granddaughter exactly the age of precious little Kaylee....I have to hold back a sob just typing her name. My own granddaughter’s name is Kaitlyn....she’s the age Kaylee would be if she were alive. Last week Kaitlyn had her first dance recital.

Her mother (my daughter), her father, and the paternal relatives as well as me, all attended. She was on stage for maybe a minute and a half but all day there was prep what with an Aunt curling her hair, the makeup, the pictures, the video I surreptitiously shot from my seat that they said not to that they may sell a “professional” video....heh.

And I think of Cindy Anthony and how much she obviously loved her little granddaughter. She’ll never go to a dance recital, she’ll never video an illegal blurry tape of little Kaylee making mistakes all over the stage.

Now she’s about to lose her daughter, with a high liklihood of death.

I consider my own daughter, who I love, of course. And I ponder...well how would I feel if she killed precious Kaitlyn? More depply, how would I feel that after losing Kaitlyn I would lose my daughter and then have no one?

Well yeah I have a husband but I have one daughter and one grandchild, not that this would matter to the crime but I’m trying to wrap my mind around what those grandparents would be feeling.

I would imagine that I’d be horrified that my daughter would kill her own child and it looks like, sad to say, that Casey very deliberately planned the murder of that precious child, dear Lord.

Still....watching my daughter go via needle would not bring my Kaitlyn back. Watching my daughter die would be TWO deaths I’d have to grieve. I’m not at all sure my heart could stand the heartbreak.

Thus on some level I get how Cindy Anthony must be so conflicted. But would I lie on the stand for my daughter?

Because I do also believe Cindy Anthony is lying. My understanding is that there were other searches for types of murder, including strangulation and others.

Because Casey, a real dim bulb folks, dimmer than one of those newfangled lightbulbs what don’t provide light....she really wanted Kaylee dead and this is why the prosecutor is going after the death penalty.

If a mother deliberately and purposefully planning the death of her innocent child isn’t reason enough for a death penalty, than nothing else is.

Which brings us to Cindy Anthony and now she might well have to watch her daughter get the death needle and I hurt for her.

I remember when the Anthonys first picked up their car from the towyard. They were all over the TV complaining about the smell, saying it smelled like something died in that car.

Within a week they were pooh-poohing that somebody died in the car mantra, saying it was probably just a rotton pizza. I knew then that a lawyer got a hold of the Anthonys and told them they were driving the death needle in to their daughter’s arm with that kind of thing.

I am not surprised that Cindy Anthony is trying to save her daughter. I think her lying on the stand is a very dumb, dumb thing for her to do. What, does she want to go to jail and join her daughter? What good would that do?

Casey Anthony....dear Lord....I will pray for that piece of self-centered nothingness.

I think Cindy Anthony had a precious granddaughter that she adored and can’t imagine how such a horrible scenario that she might well have been killed by her own mother is to try to accept.

Maybe she just doesn’t want to believe her daughter did it but I think she knows better.

Just a real tragedy for everyone. Even dumbbell Casey, did she really think she would get away with this?

Just curious.

The defense prosecution strategy seems to be to try to pin the blame for Casey’s actions on prior sexual abuse by her father and brother.

Let’s look at this scenario.

Your daughter has already thrown her daughter under the bus, quite literally. She is now trying to throw your husband and son under there too.

Would you assist her in this? I wouldn’t.

That is where the daughter gets it from. I don’t know why some parents defend their kids. That’s why the daugher is all messed up to begin with. I don’t believe the mother for a second. This is no surprise to me that the mother is doing this. This is how Casey got away with stonewalling the police for such a long time, it seems that the parents were covering for her back then. It’s just the same old thing.

Here is my understanding of that 31 day time frame:

Casey was absent and estranged from her parents during that time because Grandma accused her of being an unfit mother and threatened to take custody of Caylee. Grandma didn't know her brat daughter was off getting a tattoo, partying, and entering hot body contests. When she did reach her on the phone, Grandma kept asking to see Caylee but was told she was at a friend's house, sleeping, with the sitter, etc., etc.

Finally after 31 days Casey confessed to her mother that the kid had been missing the whole time, that the nanny kidnapped her, and that she hadn't even notified the police. After learning this information Grandma hunted down the missing car, smelled the dead body smell, and made the infamous 911 call.

I thought that there was evidence that computer searches on chloroform were conducted on at least 3 computers where Casey had access — home, boyfriend’s, friend (or library). Or, was that just a rumor?

All it takes is for a couple of people on the jury to have doubts. It’s really sickening that the defense tries to place those kinds of people on juries for exactly these kinds of situations. That’s how O.J. was acquitted.

Well, I'm a grandmother of 4, three of them babies. They all live under my roof with their mother, my daughter. You had better believe that if my daughter, either negligently or deliberately, was responsible for the death of one of these angels I would be the first one to testify against her. To do otherwise would be to dishonor the memory of the child.

And I'll bet I'm not the only one who feels this way.

The State of Florida is the only one seeking justice for Caylee.
The grandparents who say they loved Caylee are not seeking justice.

They are enablers.

Technically, yes. A search warrant could get the IP addresses of our posts here if JR keeps his server logs around (or if they're recorded in the forum database), and search warrants on ISPs could get which customer the IP addresses were assigned to. But in this case it looks like they just went through the browser history on her computer. There are many ways to clean that up.

The mother already gave testimony damning to her daughter. Now she gives a scrap of favorable testimony and you’re all sure she’s ltying and dishonoring her granddaughter.

I’m glad they have juries and not trials by on line commentary.

I, for one, have no idea if she is lying.

The grandmother called 911 and basically told them straight out her daughter just admitted the child is missing a month, AND that her car smells like a dead body was in it.

They also went to the prison and confronted their daughter with damning facts ON TAPE.

But everyone now wants to bury the grandmother as a liar, enabler and dishonoring her granddaughter.

Life is so easy from the perspective of a computer screen and keyboard.

IF the grandmother wanted to enable her daughter, and if that was all she cared about, then she would have plotted with her daughter on what to do.

She would NOT have called the police crying that her DAUGHTER’S car smelled of a dead body, and that her daughter hid the child’s disappearance for a month, and she would not have gone to the prison and confronted her daughter’s lying - on tape for the jury to see.

Sheesh.

Please. She didn't turn the daughter in, she made the initial 911 call when she thought the kid was just missing. And almost as soon as she made it, she started covered for her daughter, backtracking, changing her story, etc. It was no longer a dead body smell, it because "trash in the trunk" or "old pizza." After the first call, she and her husband never missed an opportunity to put a positive spin on the facts to benefit her daughter.

Some of us have been following this case since the beginning and know these facts well. We are entitled to form an opinion, and I've formed mine. If you don't like it, tough.

It’s very tough for them, and easy for you. I’ve also been following the case. A mother wasn’t so quick on second thought to send her daughter to the gallows. She actually reconsidered her initial reaction and tried to believe her daughter’s version. She actually became convinced she wasn’t a pathologist and expert on car trunk smells. Wow, shocking, what an evil grandmother.

BTW my guess is it was 1st degree murder however unlike everyone else here, I wasn’t there. Also the grandmother is not the defendant.

What’s the point of telling me it’s tough if I dont like your opinion?

Cindy Anthony may very well have begun a search on chloroform for some reason. As a nurse, it’s unlikely that she misspelled it as ‘chloraform’.

So - if Cindy and Casey were sharing a computer - perhaps Cindy left a search page open and Casey took it from there....OR CONVERSELY - Casey left the page open and Cindy was curious. Hard to believe that Cindy made 84 inquiries.

Prosecution’s cross examination picked Cindy apart by asking “Did you enter the search inquiry on HOW TO MAKE CHLOROFORM?” She would not give a straight answer.

“She said her time sheet from her job as a nurse might not have reflected that she was home because she was a salaried employee and required to enter hour hours whether she worked or not.

“If those computer entries were made, then I made them,” she said. “I was home. I know I took some hours off. During that week was Casey's birthday and my anniversary and I did go home early a couple days that week,” she said. “The only thing that triggers that day for me is those computer entries”

So she was at work eh? Looks like she wasn't. Not exactly punching a time clock is she?

You people have her convicted and executed already. Maybe you should look at FACTS. Maybe you should consider “reasonable doubt” in ONE jurors mind and not be so sure of a conviction.

The venom that comes out in this forum about this case is just amazing. Maybe it was just an accident that they tried to keep from Cindy. Maybe it was negligence by gramps. You people don't know. You just jump on whatever Shep Smith or Nancy Grace says.

I dont believe Cindy for a nanosecond, but also dont see why this matters much. The forensics people found high levels of chloroform in the trunk of Casey’s car. That’s a lot more incriminating than a google search.
