Casey Anthony's Dad Responds To Daughter's Interview


Casey Anthony's father said his "heart hurts even more" after Casey once again linked him to the death of his 2-year-old granddaughter, Caylee.

George and Cindy Anthony responded to Casey breaking her silence about her murder trial in a controversial interview with the Associated Press.

Casey, 30, was dubbed "America's most hated mom" when she was accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter in 2008.


She was found not guilty after a controversial trial in 2011, during which she made a string of unproven allegations about her father.

In response to her interview with AP, during which she said Caylee would be a "total badass" if she was alive today, Cindy and George Anthony released a statement to People via their attorney.


They said Casey was dragging them back to a tragic time in their lives they had tried to move past.

The statement read,

During the trial, she accused him of molesting her as a child and covering up Caylee's death. George Anthony never faced charges.

Casey has kept a low profile in the six years since her murder trial, but her relationship with her father never healed.

In her new interview, Casey said,

Casey was charged with first-degree murder after Caylee's remains were found in a wood near their home in Orlando, Florida.

Her mom, Cindy, told police Casey's car smelled like a corpse had been in it, but Casey claimed her daughter had drowned.

She was acquitted of murder, but found guilty of lying to law enforcement, and spent a year in jail.
