You may have noticed that Casey Anthony's parents sat silent as the verdict was read. After all the not guilty's were issued, everyone in Casey's camp rejoiced...all except for her mom & dad, who got up from their seats & exited the courtroom, while their little girl celebrated her new found fate. This is what Casey's family -- her mother Cindy, father George and brother Lee -- had to say about the verdict.
ORLANDO, Fla. --- Orlando attorney Mark Lippman issued the following statement on behalf of Lee, George and Cindy Anthony regarding today’s verdict.
While the family may never know what has happened to Caylee Marie Anthony, they now have closure for this chapter of their life. They will now begin the long process of rebuilding their lives.
Despite the baseless defense chosen by Casey Anthony, the family believes that the Jury made a fair decision based on the evidence presented, the testimony presented, the scientific information presented and the rules that were given to them by the Honorable Judge Perry to guide them.
The family hopes that they will be given the time by the media to reflect on this verdict and decide the best way to move forward privately.
The family also wanted the public to know that if anyone wanted to honor Caylee by leaving stuffed animals or other toys at any area near their home, that they would prefer those items be donated in Caylee’ s name to families in need, religious centers, or any other entity where the toys would be appreciated.
