Casey Anthony Makes First Statement Since Indictment: "I Miss Caylee Everyday"


One of the last photos taken of Caylee Anthony

Casey Anthony wants the world to know that she misses her daughter and regrets she cannot attend Tuesday's memorial service.
"I miss Caylee every day and every minute of every day," Casey Anthony said in a statement read by her lawyer. "I can't be there for Caylee's funeral, but someday I want to go and visit her grave and tell her how much I miss her."

Casey Anthony, 22, issued her first public comment since her October indictment on first-degree murder in her daughter's death. The two-minute statement was read by defense attorney Jose Baez outside his Kissimmee office.

She allowed her parents, Cindy and George Anthony, to plan the funeral and made a few requests -- that the service be private and Caylee be buried in a casket with a tombstone to mark the grave.

However, her parents planned otherwise, are hosting a public memorial and may have had the child cremated.

Casey Anthony also did not want the media and cameras involved in any services.

"But I can't stop my parents from doing what they want," Casey Anthony's statement said. "I truly hope it helps them."

The news conference comes on the eve of a public memorial for Anthony's daughter Caylee Marie. Anthony is accused of killing her daughter. The toddler's remains were found Dec. 11 less than a mile from the home she shared with Anthony and her grandparents.

Thousands are expected to attend the memorial service Tuesday at First Baptist Church of Orlando, about a mile from the Orange County Jail where Casey Anthony is being held.


Baez said Casey Anthony has not decided whether to watch the funeral coverage on TV from the jail. She does have a transistor radio. But Baez said he doesn't know whether Anthony will watch or listen.

Members of a controversial Kansas church known for protesting military funerals plan to picket Caylee Marie Anthony's memorial Tuesday.

Baez called their intended actions "despicable."

I am dumbstruck by Casey's words. The soul war she is waging with her mother is chilling.

@annals:
thank your for comment--a tad slower today getting everything posted. but still have it covered...heh

Yes, still shows Casey is still fighting for control w/Cindy. That is a war that will never end. It reminds me of a "spoiled brat" who hasn't gotten their way, Cindy planned the memorial, and Casey is going to bad mouth her no matter what Cindy did, it would not be good enough. Casey has not one reason to open her mouth at all to say anthing regarding the Memorial in my opinion. None of this would be happening if not for Casey. I find Casey words macabre and that anyone even gives two shits what Casey thinks about it is beyond me. Casey didn't "think" about Caylee when she was alive, nor when she murdered her--which was also gruesome now of the details that we know, not to mention what we don't know.
