Casey Anthony is currently estranged from her father, George Anthony. He believes without a doubt that his daughter is responsible for the death of Caylee, his 2-year-old granddaughter.
George said in multiple interviews that the drowning story Casey gave to the courts is an absolute fabrication. He believes she had been giving the toddler “street drugs” before she died.
He says the Caylee was and always had been a very healthy child. However, she would “sleep for 10, 12, 13 hours at a time.” To him, this made no sense, he said on “Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery.”
The grieving grandfather says things would be totally different with the little girl from one day to the next. She’d have black rings under her eyes, and things like that.
In his mind, there’s no reason for a toddler to have those issues unless something is not right. That’s why he believes Casey was giving her something.
George tells the interviewer that he thinks Casey was giving the toddler both “street drugs and also illegal drugs.” He also noted that those drugs included a “Xanax-type thing.”
“Caylee was with Casey, I believe that Casey gave her something and Caylee didn’t wake up,” George said.
The father also pointed out that “Zannie” is a street nickname for Xanax. It is also the name Casey gave an emergency dispatcher when asked where her daughter was. When Caylee first went missing, Casey said that a woman she later named as Zenaida Gonzales Fernandez had taken her, notes Reuters.
“A lot of people know that Zannie is the slang term for Xanax so as soon as I heard ‘Zannie the nanny,’ that’s what popped into my mind and I thought that she was using Xanax to babysit her child,” Clint House, a friend who had been living with Casey’s boyfriend at the time, said on the special.
George called it “a bunch of bulls***” to think that Caylee drowned in a pool.
“That’s too easy of a story to bring up cause if that would’ve happened, I think my daughter would have at least have had the common decency to come inside and call 911 and say something [like] ‘My daughter’s in the pool, I can’t get her,'” he said.
George also revealed that he and his daughter will never speak to each other again and that their relationship is “done.”
“When all this stuff happened, I lost my daughter and my granddaughter, I lost them both,” he said, adding that he would consider it justice to have Casey “behind bars and to have her suffer like Caylee suffered.”
