Casey Anthony: Cindy Anthony and Lee Anthony Deposed By Prosecution; Lee Anthony's Attorney No Longer On Case

Casey Anthony's brother, Lee Anthony, faced some tough questions from prosecutors Thursday morning.
Lee Anthony did not respond to reporter's questions when he arrived with his attorney, Tom Luka, who said they would comment when the deposition is completed.
Lee Anthony will likely be asked about what he heard and saw in the months leading up to his sister's arrest on murder charges in the death of her daughter, Caylee.
Cindy Anthony completed a round of depositions on Wednesday. She is considered a key witness for attorneys on both sides of the case.
Defense attorney Jose Baez said Cindy Anthony wasn't as volatile as she's been in the past.
"It was very professionally done deposition, and everybody's tempers were kept in check," Baez said.
"She's a loose cannon, and you have to rein her in and get her testimony very concise. You want to advance your case using her," defense attorney Richard Hornsby said.
Hornsby said he believes Cindy Anthony is critical to the state's theory of motive, and they need to get her story on the record in case it changes at trial. He also said he believes Baez will use her to prove Casey Anthony is not guilty.
George Anthony was scheduled to be deposed earlier this week, but that was rescheduled to a later date.

Lee Anthony's Attorney, Tom Luka, Exits Case

The attorney for Lee Anthony said he is exiting the case as his "representation is no longer necessary."

After eight hours of deposition, Tom Luka said Anthony "spilled it all and nothing was different."

As a result of his testimony, Luka said Lee Anthony has what's called "use immunity" from prosecution, though he said Anthony never did anything to warrant being charged in connection with the case.

Casey Anthony: Is Cindy Anthony Attempting To "Concoct" Zanny the Nanny? Anthony's Refuse Polygraph

Newly released documents raise questions about why for months the defense held on to more than two dozen items belonging to or related to Caylee Anthony.

On Thursday, Attorney Jose Baez strongly denied that he was trying to withhold evidence from investigators for his client, Casey Anthony.

Outside the Orange County Courthouse Baez was on the defensive regarding a single document among more than 1,000 released on Thursday.

It is a laundry list of items, his spokeswoman said, they took from the Anthony home in September such as books, baby toys, puzzle pieces and Spiderman toothbrush.

Baez was asked if he was he withholding potentially important evidence.

"Absolutely not and indication of that would be false and ridiculous," he said. "We did the ethical thing and there should be proof of that."

In September 2008, Baez spokeswoman said the defense took items with Casey Anthony's permission to do their own DNA testing. When they heard the FBI was interested in the items, they said they proactively turned them over in December.

She characterized their actions as good, solid defense strategy.

Also, an FBI document released on Thursday from June 2009 indicates that Casey Anthony's parents, George and Cindy, and her brother, Lee, declined to take polygraphs.
Baez would not talk about why.

There also was a police report from August 2008 that indicated Cindy Anthony may have been trying to establish that "Zanny the nanny" really existed.
"I remember months ago, Casey telling me that Zanny had given her this hair straightener ... "

( I recall Casey bringing this bit of information to the forefront during one of the first jail visits between Casey, Cindy and George, which is on one of the first video tapes to be released)

Cindy continues, "I began to remember that Casey had brought home videos that Zanny had given her," Cindy Anthony said in a statement to the Orange County Sheriff's Office. "That led me to remember that Casey used to take Bambi movies to Zanny's apartment for Caylee to watch."
Investigators have never been able to confirm that "Zanny the nanny" ever existed. Casey Anthony accused "Zanny" of kidnapping and possibly killing Caylee.

Also included in the documents released were hundreds of tips to the Orange County Sheriff's Office and Crimeline from Central Floridians who turned out to search for Caylee Anthony.
"My aching heart and prayers are with your family," wrote a tipster named Jill, who took it upon herself to research the locations of the 27 different women named Zenaida Gonzalez.
There was a tip about a sighting of Caylee Anthony at a Dollar General Store in Lula, Ga. An inmate also claimed Casey Anthony told him where Caylee was.

An eerie finding was also received in September 2008 by a man who was searching behind Hidden Oaks Elementary School and discovered a green trash bag filled with bones. That was three months before Caylee's body was found in the same area. The September discovery was only animal bones.

Here are documents released today.

One Year Ago..Caylee Anthony

It was one year ago that we first heard of the missing two year old toddler missing from Orlando, Florida. We heard the 911 call in which Cindy Anthony, the grandmother of Caylee, admitted that the car that belonged to her daughter, as well as Caylee's mother, Casey, was found and that it "smelled like a damn body in the car". Thus, began an investigation that continues to this day. Casey Anthony, now 23, was adamant that she had dropped little Caylee off with the baby sitter, one that we know now never existed. A stream of lies upon lies flowed with ease from Casey's mouth. Lies to cover up lies. Grandparents, Cindy and George Anthony, immediately became media whores whenever there was a camera. Their stories, like Casey's, changed like the weather. Casey was bonded out of jail, returned to jail, bonded out again, then finally, a grand jury indicted her in October '08 on first degree murder. Casey has been in solitary cell ever since. Casey has not had a visit from her parents since October 15, 2009, except for the casual glimpse of them during a court hearing.

The beautiful 2 year old, with the big brown eyes, who became known as "America's Angel" was found less than a quarter mile from the Anthony home in December 2009. Discarded as trash, by her mother, Casey. Duct tape wrapped around her little skull, which kept her mandible intact. On the duct tape, over little Caylee's lips, was residue from a heart shaped sticker, the sticker found at the crime scene, which implies that this horrendous act was performed after her death.

We all know the story thus far. Let's continue to keep Caylee in our hearts and prayers. Never forget. We are the only voice for Caylee. Casey took Caylee's voice when she duct taped her mouth, murdered her, and then proceeded to drive around with Caylee in her car for several days before dumping her like garbage.

Rest in peace, sweet Caylee. We will never forget you. May you be forever young, and an angel among angels. All those that have never met you, pray for you each day and keep you close in their hearts.

Remember Caylee
