Bounty hunter: Casey Anthony has made no effort to help him find missing tot

Casey Anthony has made no effort to help California bounty hunter Leonard Padilla find her missing daughter Caylee Marie, he told the Orlando Sentinel on Wednesday. "She has not communicated with us at all," Padilla said. "She has no interest in communicating with us." Padilla, whose nephew posted Anthony's bail last week, said if he knew what he knew today about the case, and that the 22-year-old wouldn't cooperate with him, he probably would not have helped get her out of jail. Padilla said he still thinks Caylee is alive and that Anthony handed her off to someone. But he does not believe the toddler was dropped off with a baby-sitter named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, which is what Anthony has told detectives. "We don't believe [Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez] exists," Padilla said. "[Anthony's] got an invisible friend that's called Zenaida," he said. "She's got a world that she lives in that's apart from ours." Padilla said he is using Anthony's cell phone records as part of his own investigation and has spoken to some of her friends.

This old man is looking more the fool each day.

If the brother, the parents, the cops, couldn’t get this cheap little tramp Casey to tell what she did with her kid, why should he have thought he could?

I am glad he wasted his money. Maybe the sneaky witch Casey will outsnooker him and flee.

He would deserve it.

Casey Anthony is no idiot.

(1) She did a pretty good job of disposing of the body of the child she murdered. Some trace DNA probably exists, but the body remains undiscovered after two months of investigation.

(2) She has successfully concealed the child's true paternity - a fact which does not directly help her, but which attests to her success at secretiveness.

(3) She successfully infiltrated the investigative team for weeks without them finding out, while the investigative team has failed to get anyone close to her to give up any really useful information.

(4) Her infiltration of the investigative team served a dual purpose: it gave her information that enabled her to stay ahead opf the investigation and it tainted the investigation's integrity that may ebenfit her in court.

(5) She has completely stonewalled the police without breaking - a relatively difficult thing to do - and will not discuss anything of any significance with her family or supporters, which is even more difficult.

My conclusion: Casey Anthony murdered her own daughter in cold blood and she will not be convicted of anything more serious than neglect.

She will be free and living in a new state under a new identity in a year or so.

Going along with your conclusion, the question remains, why? What would motivate her to (presumably) knife her little girl to death? What was to be gained?

So freaking track down Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez!!!

The cops already did. She doesn't know Casey or Caylee. When shown a pic of her with other women Casey did not recognize her............Ms. Gonzalez just wants to be left alone.......

I wouldn’t go so far as to say outright premeditated murder. Caylee probably died accidentally, and negligently so. Casey burned and buried the body out by the airport wilderness. It’s only a matter of time before the cops come up with some fragments of burned clothing or dna............

Casey Anthony is 22 years old. She likes to drink and party and have sex with random men she meets.

She never wanted to have a kid in the first place, and her mother had to talk her into not giving the little girl up for adoption.

Kids, especially two year olds, cry and complain a lot and have to be looked after constantly. That really cuts into your party time. Plus, the men you pick up in bars are not too jazzed about dating women with kids and aren't too understanding about calling you back when you leave the party early to pick up your kid.

Caylee was an enormous pain in the butt for Casey and was totally ruining her desired lifestyle. An enraged, hungover and resentful "mom", confronted at two in the morning by a screaming toddler could likely form the conclusion in her mind that if she just shut this toddler up for good and all, she'd have her life back.

sociopathic self-centeredness

the child was “holding her back” from a fine lifestyle in the “Champagne Lounge” rooms of the VIP clubs and bars.

There are people like her, both male and female, that step beyond the bounds of civilization.

Motivation, in the sense of a something that could be understood by you and I in a rational and moral manner, does not surface in many of these cases.

I would. Her affect tells us that she is absolutely capable of it. And if she was just covering up an accident, her lawyer would have advised her to come clean and deal.

Your two posts are one of the best synopsis of this strange case I’ve seen.

Just because someone comes off as a nut does not mean they aren’t very cunning.

I’d love to be a fly on the wall at the Anthony home! Do you wonder what the conversations are like at dinner? Or hey,. maybe they all just play like everything normal and there never was a Caylee! If I were Casey’s mom I would put a strangle hold on that cold b—— until she spilled the beans. They should personally haul her butt back to jail and let her rot there and when trial time comes I would testify against her with everything I had.

“Time to use water boarding.”

That’s what I figured this bozo was going to do; spring her and then use some “persuasive techniques” on her.

I mean, would you believe this bimbo if she said someone had “waterboarded” her when the kid (alive or dead) showed up ?

Thanks, fatima. I think the Bounty Hunter might have had this info last night. Just a guess.

No. She needs to be waterboarded.

I am afraid little Caylee is dead. All that is left is for this useless wretch of a mother to face justice -- here or hereafter.

He sure did. They made a fool out of him.

From your link...

Officials have offered Anthony a partial immunity deal if she admits 3-year-old Caylee Marie died as a result of an accident.

Accident? I don't like it. Well, I suppose they'll find out what she did with that poor beautful baby.

"I am glad he wasted his money."

Unfortunately, he didn't waste the $ 50,000 because he's bought a lot more publicity than that in his TV appearances. Remember that some regard publicity of any kind, even bad, and that which makes you look like a total fool, better than none.

On top of that, he gave his $ 50,000 to his nephew the bail bondsman to hold, so as long as Casey shows up for her court appearance, he hasn't even spent any of his $ unless his nephew stiffs him.

If I were Casey’s mom I would put a strangle hold on that cold b—— until she spilled the beans.

nah... the grandma is in on the deal too. If you look at the testimony the grandma makes during the hearing..she makes this weird little head nod and eyebrow lift when she said 'and nobody can prove anything...."... almost like a "wink-wink, nod-nod, say no-more, say no-more'

Just a weird thing when they showed the highlights on FOX.

I think the young mom either accidently killed her or somehow allowed a situation to develop that killed her and she freaked out. If the whole chunk of that gene pool was chlorinated, it would benefit all of society.
